Getting smarter about your health
The internet is a global resource filled with useful, interesting information about health and wellness (including many scientific studies). Since there’s so much to choose from, we thought that it might be helpful to you if we recommended a few websites and blogs that we love to visit to see what’s going on… and stay up to date.
A few more helpful wellness sources:
