Provides general information, games, quizzes, puzzles and resources for kids, teens and teachers on food safety.
“If you just look at the numbers, it can be overwhelming. Obesity is epidemic in the United States. In recent years, diabetes rates among people ages 30 to 39 rose by 70%. About 46.5 million adults in the United States smoke cigarettes, even though this single behavior will result in disability and premature death for half of them. More than 60% of American adults do not get enough physical activity, and more than 25% are not active at all. Yet if you talk to Americans, there is hope. They say they generally know what will make them healthier, but they are confused about what specific information is credible and accurate. will be that source of credible, accurate information to help Americans choose to live healthier lives.”

Wikipedia Users Should Check Out WikiWax
If you're a Wikipedia user this new dynamic query suggestion tool might be a welcome addition to your research arsenal.
Wikipedia Plus Dynamic Search Term Suggestions = WikiWax
Surfwax has just launched its LookAhead search term suggestion technology combined with Wikipedia into a new site called WikiWax. Over 600,000 Wikipedia index terms are listed with more than 2,000,000 LookAhead rotations available. Remember, you'll see LookAhead offering suggested entries prior to clicking the search button.
What's a term rotation?
LookAhead automatically rotates Wikipedia index terms, so you can find Abraham Lincoln under both Abraham Lincoln and Lincoln, Abraham. LookAhead automatically inserts a comma after the first word on topics that are rotated, e.g., Abraham, Lincoln.

University of California-Los Angeles: Online Archive of American Folk

The Archive of American Folk Medicine is the result of more than 50 years of
work by UCLA-associated folklorists who "documented beliefs and practices
relating to folk medicine and alternative healthcare. In order to make the
data more readily available to the worldwide community of researchers and
medical practitioners, the Online Archive of American Folk Medicine was
established in 1996 under the direction of Dr. Michael Owen Jones, a
professor of folklore and history at UCLA." The Archive draws from over
3,200 published works, and is intended to serve folklorists, sociologists,
and historians. The website provides basic and advanced search options; and
records include brief entries for Citation, Condition, Belief, Method of
Treatment, and more. Users should be aware that the Archive website has not
been updated in several years but it remains a valuable resource for
researchers and others interested in folk medicine. [NL]

Synopsis: Let's make sure this garden doesn't remain a secret--it's a place everyone should know about! Lyrical prose describes in detail the insects and other creatures one can expect to find in one's garden, and stunning photos capture in almost frightening minutiae (who among us has ever wanted to be up close and personal with a wasp?) the organisms being described.
This site is a photographic celebration of the small creatures that live on or near the plants in the web site author's garden. The site contains over 100 photographs of insects, garden snails, spiders and other small animals. A magnifying glass tool allows the viewer to see details on any part of the image. Every photo is accompanied by a few paragraphs of text. The text for any given image consists of personal reflections on the photograph, anecdotes from the author's childhood or gardening experiences, descriptions of how the photo was taken, and/or a few facts about the animal featured in the image. Abstracted 9/03. (Author/BRS)
