Google Health Questions

It’s very obvious to me that much of the challenges in managing one’s health have search as a solution.  Google knows this too.  Here’s a very interesting blog post about it.   They conclude:

At the end of the day, all these questions are about how you find the
information you need. They are deceptively simple. If they were about
restaurants, they would be trivial. But they are actually matters of
life and death in the extreme and quality of life in the common case.
In short, they matter profoundly.

At some point Google will unveil a health product.  If done right, it can double Google’s market cap.  I continue to watch.
