Get Healthy

   "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

strives to

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

teen section

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

healthy rich.
