  • Health Capsule: Veggie Eating Boosted By Tasty Names
    Everyone knows they should eat more vegetables. But only about 10% of Americans eat the recommended number of veggies per day. A recent study found that tasty descriptions can encourage people to make healthier choices.
  • Health Capsule: Safety Tips for Physical Activity
    Staying active is key for good health. No matter your age or fitness level, getting more physical activity will help support your body and mind. Experts recommend getting at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week.
  • Featured Website: Finding Treatment for Drug Use Disorder
    If you or a loved one needs treatment for a drug use problem, it can be challenging to know where to start. NIH has step-by-step guides to finding treatment for teens and adults, as well as guides for friends and family. Find more information on treatment options and available resources.

NIH News in Health is available online in both HTML and PDF formats. Additionally, you can get trusted, up-to-date health information from NIH News in Health added directly to your site via NIH content syndication. Print copies are available free of charge for offices, clinics, community centers, and libraries within the U.S. Visit the NIH News in Health Facebook page to suggest topics you’d like to see covered, or share what you find helpful about the newsletter!
