Google Trends Revisited

I've discussed using Google Trends as a way to gauge public interest on health headlines that pop up in the news. I decided to put it to use today and see what happens. I plugged in "cervical cancer" and the most recent spike in search queries was on June 9th. It corresponds very nicely with the latest published articles on the new vaccine for cervical cancer. Coincidentally, on that very day, I also wrote on this topic.

On a side note, the first round of World Cup ended today. The Round of 16 starts tomorrow morning. The tournament really heats up tomorrow with the single elimination format.
