There are a lot of good health sites out there in cyberspace. But it always pays to be cautious about what you decide to read – for every good health site there’s probably one somewhere trying to sell snake oil and miracle powder.
So what follows is a list of the sites we follow – all trustworthy:
Guardian health pages – very good indeed. Clearly laid out, with content relating to just about every area of health and wellbeing you could wish for, from mental health to NHS news, to more general health blogs. Highly recommended.
NHS Choices – a very nice resource indeed, like having your own medical encyclopedia except it takes up no shelf space.
The Independent newspaper’s health and wellbeing pages are always worth a look, same with those at the Telegraph.
AXA nutrition and fitness – wide selection of resources from videos on diet, fitness and the mind to healthy eating recipes and healthy living guides.
Mental Health Foundation – mental health isn’t something that’s talked about as much as maybe it should be, but we’ve come a long, long way over the years. Mental illness is also reasonably common with about 5% of people suffering from it at any one time. This means that most of us will either have suffered from it, or known someone who has suffered from it during our lives.
Anyway, these are the health sites that we peruse regularly.
If you’ve got any suggestions for sites that we can add to our list of must -reads, please let us know in the comments.
Until our next post – be healthy, take it easy.
