1. Your symptoms
If you have a headache, toothache or any other type of symptoms, don’t go immediately on Google and start searching remedies or reasons why you don’t feel good. First of all, these information won’t help you that much, it’s better to just go and see a doctor.
Second of all, if you start and Google your symptoms, you may find a lot of diseases that have the same indicators as yours. It’s best not to do that, because you will start thinking that you could actually have one of the diseases. In other words, you might end up being a hypochondriac.
2. Giving birth videos
Although it’s always good to be informed, especially when it comes to serious subjects such as pregnancy and giving birth, there are cases when watching videos with people that are giving birth might be disturbing.
This kind of videos can make some people feel unsafe and scared of giving birth. They might even postpone the idea of getting pregnant or even refuse to have children.
3. Criminal things
Curiosity is good, but there are cases when it can do more harm than good. For example, you might be tempted to search on Google things like “how to make a bomb” or “how to make amphetamines”, just out of interest and nothing else. You may not have the intention to actually create what you’ve read about, but keep in mind that you can be tracked by security and drug control services. They always track these type of searches, so your IP address can appear in their databases.
Explain them that you were only curious…
