My friend and colleague Jan Henderson has begun a new blog called The Health Culture.
You can check it out at: http://www.thehealthculture.com/
She has this to say about it.
"I've started a blog called The Health Culture at www.TheHealthCulture.com . In what now seems like a previous life, I was a professor of the History of Science and Medicine, and this blog takes me back to those roots. It combines my long time interests in health, medicine, anxiety, mass media, alternative therapies, and the history of ideas. One thing I'm focusing on is trying to understand why we became so preoccupied with healthy lifestyles over the past 50 years. As the blog continues, I hope people will contribute personal stories of how their experiences of health and medicine have changed in their lifetimes, such as the change in the doctor/patient relationship. I also have a great source for health news (most sources are overly alarmist), among many other things."
