Google is burying alternative health sites to protect people from “dangerous” medical advice

"When we face health issues, decisions become tougher. There is an orthodox opinion, and there are always dissenting opinions. For example, the orthodoxy recommends statins to reduce high cholesterol. Others believe high cholesterol is not a health risk and that statins are harmful. Should treatments be dictated by those on one side of the argument? After all, due to human variability, statins may both save some lives and impair or kill other people. With some doctors questioning whether to prescribe statins for everyone, there is a large financial incentive to stifle debate. ...There are good reasons to be concerned that we are losing access to information with which to evaluate opposing sides of health issues, like the statin debate. Already Google is 'burning' sites that question the medical orthodoxy about statins."
