Health – for primary school
If someone got better after using a treatment it does not necessarily mean that the treatment made them better.
People often believe that someone who was sick got better because they used a treatment. People may also believe that someone got worse because of using a treatment.
Although a person got better after using a treatment, the treatment may not have helped. It’s possible they would have gotten better without the treatment. It also does not mean that giving another person the same treatment will make them better.
BEWARE when someone says: “It worked for me.”
REMEMBER, someone’s personal experience of using a treatment does not necessarily mean that the treatment made them better or worse.
