The technology that has made you stagnant and lazy is the same technology that will help you get back in shape. Today we'll be learning about the five most innovative health apps that you must use in 2020.

There exists an old proverb, "Health is the true wealth of a man." We've heard it countless times from our teachers, parents, and our doctor, so much that now we have forgotten the meaning of it. But to remind us of the importance of health comes the very source that people blame these days for ruining it: smartphones.

Just as E=MC2 was not created by Einstein to build an atomic bomb, it was for the growth of humans and not for their destruction. Similarly, smartphones were built for the ease and growth of humanity, but several people have a notion that smartphones are the issue.

The real reason is that they are only looking for such people that have engrossed themselves in the mobile world and lost track of their health. But, you can't blame a piece of technology for the decisions that you make about your health. 

So to prove all those ignorant people wrong, we are here with the list of five most innovative health apps of 2020.


Diagnoses can be tough, and going to Google with your symptoms only gives you one of two results; either you have cancer or a tumor. So, what can you do when there is no doctor around, or you need a second opinion.
