But, put it in the wrong hands, and it can go south reeeeeal quick. It gives anyone with a smartphone/computer/tablet the ability to speak freely, without filtration or regulation. That can be a breeding ground for misinformation, especially in the fitness industry. I don't know about you, but there have been many a time when I found...
