Overheard: a woman tells another that she gets all her medical advice from a YouTube “doctor” and that insulin is a way to hook you on sugar.She goes on to say that she has stopped using prescribed medications for her diabetes.

The woman is elderly and obese, and uses a literal magnifying glass to read her iPhone screen.. Her friend, also elderly, takes her advice and begins looking at YouTube.

I can’t make this stuff up. Apparently, people are more afraid of some things than the problem they have, and are willing to accept the lesser of their OWN two evils. She is more concerned about being “hooked on sugar” than controlling her diabetes.

Humans are weird.
