Our media is constantly bombarding us with messages about "health" - what is healthy, what is unhealthy, how to enhance your health, remedies for when you are sick to return you to health, and on and on.  With so many messages, some of which are confusing or even contradicting, how do you sort out fact from fiction?

This section of our site is dedicated to helping you explore this concept of "health," providing you with the most up to date high quality, evidence-based research. We'll present articles that speak to health related topics that may be relevant to you or someone you care about.  They may be topics you've heard something about, or they may be new to you.  Or, they may even be health related concepts that you have been meaning to look into, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

This information is intended to be used in partnership with the your health care provider to maintain wellness, practice prevention and make the best health care decisions for you.
