Most of us been thinking and communicating health information for our entire adult lives. Some of us (including me) since before our brain was fully developed.
We’d like to think that we’re doing a good job of conveying information to everyone else who hasn’t had the depth of learning we have. I’m sure a lot of the time we do a really good job, BUT can we actually be sure?
