I went to donate blood recently and if you have not done so yourself recently (or at all) I strongly recommend you doing it.
Just go to https://www.donateblood.com.au/ to find the closest location to you.
When I came in they said “Hey looks like you have donated blood a lot of times before and currently we have plenty of your blood type in the bank, but would you consider donating plasma today?” I said why not , read some material, signed some forms and proceeded with it.
Later when I came to office (I did the donation 7:30AM on my way there, YES they open this early so there is no excuse not to donate) I decided to google how healthy it is to donate plasma vs regular blood donation.
So I’ve opened a new tab and typed “Is it healthy to” and here is what I’ve got as the suggested searches
I almost fell of my chair laughing. Is that what the general google search user in Australia is concerned about when it is regarding his/her health?!
I’ve decided to dive a bit dipper into the subject and, when I found some free time one of the evening, I sat and compared the results across 9 countries which have the highest percentage of population with English being their first language [source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_English-speaking_population]. “Why 9?” you might ask. Keep reading and you will get your answer.
The countries are:
- United Kingdom
- New Zealand
- United States
- South Africa
So I opened a new incognito window , so that the search suggestions will not be impacted by my own search history and typed the same phrase again, “is it healthy to” and…. no , still received the same suggestion, so it is not me, that have these weird questions, it is the the whole population (of google users in Australia).
Next step was to go to search settings, change region for search results to the next country of interest, type the same search again and be amazed by google search suggestions each time.
By the way I have results for 9 countries since one of the 10 ones is Liberia, but google would not let you set it in it’s search settings.
Here are the top 5 repeated suggestions across the 9 countries:
- 1st place – was suggested for 8 out of 9 countries
“is it healthy to fart” – no comments
- 2nd place – was suggested for 7 out of 9 countries is shared between
“is it healthy to be vegan” – well I understand that it is quite trendy now and people are worried about their diet
- 3rd place- was suggested for 6 out of 9 countries is shared between
“is it healthy to cry” – why are you crying the much? Is it because of the 1st suggestion or the second
“is it healthy to fast” – makes sense, if you want to stop crying because of your vegan diet or your eyes can suffer anymore of your farts may be you should stop eating at all.
- 4th place – was suggested for 5 out of 9 countries
“is it healthy to donate blood” – finally!! Humanity is saved! People are interested (or at least considering donating blood)
- 5th place – was suggested for 4 out of 9 countries is shared between
“is it healthy to eat eggs everyday” – may this is the reason for most of your previous questions
“is it healthy to have sex everyday” – yeah, noo, I don’t think so, not sure if anyone will want to bearing in mind the questions you were previously asking
