MedlinePlus Magazine

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) publishes a quarterly consumer magazine called NIH MedlinePlus Magazine. It contains features on all kinds of practical health information. The Winter 2011 issue is available now. Here are the features in this issue (each feature is then divided into sections):

Feature: Quit Smoking: Here's How

Feature: Osteoporosis (there's a great interview with Cloris Leachman in this section)

Special Section: Sickle Cell Disease

Feature: Flu Shot

You can also check out past issues at the MedlinePlus Magazine web site: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/magazine/index.html. The magazine is also available in a print edition free of charge. There's a "subscribe" link at the bottom of the page for that.
