I found an interesting article title "Coping with public health 2.0" by Kumanan Wilson, MD MSc and Jennifer Keelan, PhD. In this article, they look at how Web 2.0 allows public communication of health knowledge between both health experts and professionals as well as the general public. This provides a space where critics can voice their opinions which can be placed directly against the facts provided by doctors. As an example, the article provides an example with the current war that is waging against vaccines that some believe to cause autism. Read the report here.
