"The first wealth is health,"
wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson
We agree, Mr. Emerson, and so do
the folks at KidsHealth.
With separate areas for kids,
teens and parents, KidsHealth
provide honest, accurate and understandable
information to those who want to keep their
minds and bodies fit as a fiddle. Created by
The Nemours Foundation, physicians and other
health experts review all the site's content
before it's published.
Take a cyber trip to KidsHealth's
and learn about acne myths (no,
chocolate and greasy foods do not cause
acne), how much sleep teens actually need
(around 9 hours), or find a recipe for lemon
chicken salad. The site also tackles more
serious issues like how to help a friend who
cuts and how to deal with depression. And if
you have a health question that you're too
embarrassed to ask, chances are you'll find
an answer in the "Experts
Answers on …"
Go ahead and let KidsHealth be
your reliable source for getting and staying
