If You're a Woman, You Must Check Out This Web Site

Every once in a blue moon, a Web site comes along that really captivates me. I found such a Web site yesterday. The National Women’s Health Information Center’s Web site, www.womenshealth.gov, is an incredibly informative and fascinating Web site for women.

They have a quiz on their site that allows you to asses your risk for heart disease and read articles tailored to your risk. According to the directions for the quiz,

“…you will be escorted through a short, confidential survey of questions about your health and lifestyle. Based on your answers, we'll provide you with a series of articles detailing the latest information on exercise, nutrition, smoking, diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure and other factors that affect you and your risk for heart disease - all tailored to your needs.


We've designed a personalized web site because we believe you're better equipped to make changes to improve your health and quality of life when you receive materials that speak to you and your unique health concerns. Click above or below to continue reducing your risk for cardiovascular disease and begin enjoying the benefits of better health!”


I took the quiz and read all of the pertinent articles, and I really found all of the information was well-written, easy to understand and very helpful. The quiz only takes about three minutes and could save your life.
