#4 Clinical Trend: Tin Man Syndrome

Each month, one search trends for no obvious reason, and we ask for your help in understanding why! Last month’s mystery term was “Blue Urine.” Our users provided a variety of excellent guesses as to why it increased in popularity, ranging from side effects of certain laboratory tests to methylene blue consumption for nootropic supplementation. Thanks to all who responded! If you know why Tin Man Syndrome would have increased in popularity this month, please leave us a note in the comment section.
