Health Promotion

This section provides reliable information on how to positively change your diet, exercise and lifestyle to promote your health and that of your family. Our doctor-authored leaflets will help you answer questions like "How do I eat healthily?", "How much alcohol is safe?" and "Is smoking really bad for me?". The leaflets also contain information on treatments to help you, for example nicotine replacement treatments or tablets for stopping smoking, or help you prevent problems, such as "How do I examine myself?" (breasts or testes) or "Which treatment should I use to prevent malaria?".
