Where can you go to find more information about stroke, the subject of this months cover story? What should seniors look for in a multivitamin? How can consumers demand that the FDA require food labels to list heart-damaging trans fat?
A single issue of Nutrition Action Healthletter cant include everything about everything, even in the longer articles. Thats one reason weve started using the Internet to provide readers (and others) with more information.
Weve begun posting on our Web site (www.cspinet.org) details, resources, and other information that we couldnt squeeze into our articles. For example, youll find links to government sites and support groups that deal with prostate cancer and stroke; important studies on St. Johns wort, glucosamine, chondroitin, and other dietary supplements; and government reports on drinking water and food allergies.
Here are some other reasons to hop online and get lost in our Web site. From our home page youll be able to:
Read selected articles from the past three years worth of Nutrition Action Healthletters (plus the studies of movie theatre popcorn and food from Chinese, Italian, and Mexican restaurants that made such a splash in the early 90s).
