No more Dr. Google. I have finally bumped into modern information that is authentic, tried and tested. I do intend to put the information from these newsletters into use with other holistic approaches - and this is indeed a wealth of wisdom to begin with. Being a hypochondriac by nature, your resources are helping put to rest a lot of what worries me from time-to-time - all because of now knowing what we are subjecting our minds and body to that affects our health in one way or another. ~ Khalsa Lakhvir-Singh, Kenya
I just posted the previous review. And, just found that the search function was not working because of an ad blocking app I have on my iMac. So, I rescind my prior comment, and think your publication and web site for the best. Thank you. alr, Chicago
I've subscribed for several years. By far, the best, most timely, and well supported information I've come across. My only complaint is the lack of a search function to find articles in back issues.
I'v recently switched my Harvard Mens Health Watch from written form to E form. Its great & easy to use. I can view each section & print any section I want in my permanent records. I like the way each section has a print function at it's end for convenience. Thanks.
I appreciate the on-line availability of back issues. I have a mixed stack of five health letters going back for years and it takes a lot of work to find any specific article. Now, adding a Search function to the on-line back issues would be a tremendous improvement.
The articles are very well written and easy to understand by a lay person. I keep all my issues in a three-ring binder for future reference. WAS, New London, CT
What I appreciate most about HMHW---in distinction to some other health newsletters I've read---is that it doesn't talk down to me and it goes into considerable depth on issues. I need to go beyond the basic lifestyle issues---diet, exercise, non-smoking, low stress---about which I'm very aware, and get the latest, detailed information and you give that to me. DJ, Milton, MA
the best newsletter (and i've tried many) i've seen. well worth every penny (but please don't increase the price) rk dallas, tx
I would like to see more info on the emotional effect of aging and how others are dealing with the changes and losses of the process.
Just keep doing what you're doing. I feel your articles are at just the right level of detail for the layman. Not simplistic but not off putting by their technical sophistication. RSS Naperville, IL
In the last issue about osteoporosis it was stated (without justification or scientific support) that women's statistics on treatment could be applied to men. I see absolutely no reason for this and hope that the next issue clears up the issue. I have found your publication to be very helpful to me to navigate my way through various drug suggestions coming from doctors. I hope it continues that way. POS, MA
I love the quality of the newsletter's writing: concise and clear. JAH, McPherson, KS
I especially appreciate the references to and descriptions of the research that supports the information and recommendations reported. JB, Columbus, OH
All of your articles are very interesting and very educational. Worth my time reading them. Thanks. WJ, Kamloops, BC, Canada
Eliminate the words, "may" and "might" from your articles. I appreciate information with more certainty as I believe moat readers do. WJM Belmont, MA
I don't see value in the advance, on-line availability. I've never used it. Overall, I find the newsletter valuable and often share articles with friends. I believe I'm considerably younger than your average subscriber, so you've got me for another 40-50 years. Are you offering a multi-decade discount? TM, NY, NY
The information I received from the Harvard Health Publishing has been very helpful in estimating and improving my overall health and as well as providing me with preventative strategies for various conditions. JCN - Wisconsin
