The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced the launch of an expanded health information website.
The expanded site now offers links to a wider range of NIH's valuable resources and gives readers the chance to test their health knowledge.
"NIH is the nation's medical research agency, and has long been considered a highly trusted source of health information," said Dennis Rodrigues, NIH website manager.

"As more than half of American adults use the Web to access health information, we are pleased to be able to expand our services and provide 'one-stop shopping' for valuable information from across the more than two dozen institutes and centers that comprise NIH."

- Healthy Lifestyles highlights links to popular topics such as seasonal health concerns, nutrition and weight loss.
- Research In Action links users to cutting-edge scientific information on topics such as stem cells and genetics, and provides readers with an opportunity to meet scientists ranging from high school students to Nobel Laureates.
- Now Online emphasizes interactive features and Web exhibits, such as the Portion Distortion quiz, the Household Products Database, and the Milk Matters campaign.
