Daily Apple  

Review by Debbie Mazo


Years ago, it was believed that an apple a day was the best prevention for ill health. Today, the state of medicine is more advanced but still revolves around the notion that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Not only does the Daily Apple, an online health magazine, help keep the doctor away, it also offers the perfect slice when it comes to up-to-date information on healthy living and nutrition.

The Daily Apple The Daily Apple was founded with the premise that the first step in disease and illness prevention is knowledge and understanding. Bringing together a host of medical experts, the focus is to provide easy access to the best medical information in ways that people can understand and put into action. With good coverage on the basics in the form of health news briefs, this online magazine can help you navigate through the murky waters when it comes to educating yourself about a healthier lifestyle.

Aimed at all audiences, the Daily Apple highlights health articles for children, seniors, men, and women. Click on the Women's Health icon and you'll find articles relating to everything from osteoporosis to eating orders. Concerned about your children's health? Then, browse through the Children's Health Center and find out how sleep can affect behavior or how eating breakfast can help your children get better grades.

When it comes to nutrition, the Daily Apple serves up all kinds of information. Browse through the Lifestyle and Nutrition Center for everything from guidelines for eating right and staying healthy to what you need to know about Vitamin B. Ready to cook healthy? Then, try some of the offerings in the Healthy Cooking section which includes tempting photos and handy links to ingredients and instructions for each recipe. For starters, sample the Salad Nicoise, the famous salad originating in the South of France featuring healthy ingredients like French beans, eggs, cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, and tuna fish. Or, spice up your dinner by serving Crispy Salmon Steaks with Sweet Chili Sauce.

With discussion forums for each topic, an email newsletter, and an informative Diseases & Disorders section, the Daily Apple covers all the bases when it comes to enhancing your physical and emotional life.
