When your doctor prescribes a drug for you, do you know what it is suppose to do, what the side effects are? How about an independent source for drug information. Check out Drug Digest. It is a noncommercial, evidence-based, consumer health and drug information site dedicated to empowering consumers to make informed choices about drugs and treatment options.

The above is a good source but if you want to verify that they are giving you correct information or need another source, this site will help. Actually I would search both sites to compare information and then make a judgment call.

Now since we are feeling bad and have checked out all the drugs, why don’t we just go out and get some fast food? If you do you better know what to eat and what not to eat based on the total calories and fat. You don’t’ know that at Big Mac is 560 calories and 30 grams of fat? You will if you venture over to this site and check out the ‘Fast Food Calorie Counter’.

Most of us have eaten or eat on a regular basis some type of cold cereal. General Mills has started post cute little icon on their products to tell you how healthy each product is for you. They call it their goodness corner. Check it out and see the icon they use so at a quick glance you can tell if it is ok for you and or the kiddies.

Ok, let’s complete this with a source to find out the calories in any food, well most of the popular foods anyway.

I just finished watch the first episode of ‘24’ for this season and seeing the air traffic control made me check out this fact. The average number of people airborne over the U.S. in any given hour: 61,000
