Health & Nutrition Online
Page 1 of 2

Everyday there's something new in the headlines telling us how we can be healthier and live longer. Sorting fact from fiction is not always easy. Besides, if they put it in print, it must be true, right? Wrong! You really need to consider the source. Is your favorite writer at "Hot Rod" really qualified to write a side article about the benefits of a balanced diet? Maybe. Maybe not. With all the information floating around, it's good to know that some prominent agencies have set up Web sites where you can get accurate and current news about health and nutrition.

A good starting point is the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. In addition to contact information about the agency itself, you'll also find a listing of other regulatory agencies which have responsibilities for foods.

There are also FAQs relating to areas such as cosmetics, food additives and dietary supplements as well as pre-market approval and food labeling. You can even download the entire Food Safety Initiative here!

Another great site is the United States Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition Information Center which is part of the National Agriculture Library. Here you will find an index of food and nutrition related Internet resources where you can get news on just about anything ranging from associations to weight control. This site also provides articles on various nutrition issues and offers a database of food and nutrition software and other related materials.
