Rapid Response:

Useful health info!


In response to the article I would like to point readers at a 'not
for profit' health related web site developed by Prof. Ron Maughan and

The system built for Brendan Foster's web site provides
simple, easy to use and easy to follow tailored health information, it
even describes the difference between health and fitness.

The site has over 8500 registered users and over 99% of the users
think the site is useful and informative. It was developed with a small
budget and is used daily.

To access the site visit

many thanks
