The Cautionary Tale of AI Health Advice

“Somebody asked ‘How many rocks should I eat a day?’ and it responded ‘one a day for vitamins and minerals'”……

President of The Happiness Center and a leading expert in Positive Psychology, Dr. Elia Gourgouris discusses the growing role of AI in providing health advice.

“Trust, but verify”

Despite being a fan of AI’s efficiency, he cautions against relying solely on it for critical health decisions. “Trust but verify,” he says, stressing the need to check information for reliability. Casual browsing out of curiosity can be fine, but when it comes to your health, it’s essential to rely on verified sources. The potential risks of misinformation can have serious consequences.

Health Has No Shortcuts

Don’t take shortcuts with your health, and don’t risk it by asking AI. Dr. Elia believes that while AI can provide quick information, it should not replace careful research or advice from medical professionals – especially when it comes to something as vital as your health.
