Welcome to Highlight HEALTH

Highlight HEALTH serves as an information medium to provide knowledge and understanding of dietary supplements, nutrition and health news. We evaluate scientific information, disseminate research results and educate readers who are seeking better health to promote an enhanced quality of life.

The information presented at Highlight HEALTH is intended for the general public, patients, healthcare providers and caregivers, and is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her existing physician.

Improvement of dietary habits can be crucial for the prevention of disease and promotion of health. Similarly, vitamin, mineral and herbal supplementation can play an important role as diet alone is often inadequate to provide all essential nutrients. Along with diet, the elimination of household toxins can improve home health and have a significant impact on a person’s overall health.

Articles on Highlight HEALTH reflect the following:

  1. Documentation and References: Health science, including research in nutrition, biochemistry, metabolism and medicine, are essential resources for determining the effects of nutritional supplementation. Published clinical trials are required for determining supplement efficacy and safety. Undocumented claims and hearsay are not acceptable for website publication. All articles presented on Highlight HEALTH include bibliographic citations and research article abstracts from published scientific literature.
  2. Home Health: Your home should be the safest place in the world. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, 89% of poison exposures occur in the home and cosmetics/personal care products and cleaning products are two of the most common forms of poisoning for children under the age of six [1]. Most household cleaners contain toxic chemicals such as chlorine, ammonia and petroleum [2]. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has identified more than 150 chemicals in the home that have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities [3].
  3. Myths and Education: What you don’t know can hurt you. In the world today, it’s difficult to sort out the corporate propaganda from what’s best for you and your health. Unfortunately, much of the health advice and possibly care we receive is motivated by marketing objectives and individual profit. Educate yourself so that you can protect you and the ones you love.
