Founded in 1984, the WELLNESS LETTER has more than 350,000 subscribers in the U.S. and Canada (plus thousands of readers of its foreign-language editions). It has been rated No. 1 by U.S. News & World Report, the Baltimore Sun, Money Magazine, and the Washington Post, for its brisk, reasoned coverage of health issues.
The WELLNESS LETTER relies on the expertise of the School of Public Health and other researchers at UC Berkeley, as well as other top scientists from around the world. It translates this leading-edge research into practical advice for daily living —at home, at work, while exercising, and in the market or health-food store.
Rather than simply reporting quick health stories of the day, the WELLNESS LETTER puts the news in perspective and evaluates it. It constantly reviews the latest research to give you the edge in your quest to live the best life you can. In particular, it clarifies the often conflicting and superficial health information presented by the popular media. It doesn't promote faddish diets or other anecdote-based regimens. Nor does it simply repeat conventional medical advice from mainstream health organizations or pharmaceutical companies.
Behind the WELLNESS LETTER stands one of the most respected educational institutions in the world. For over a century, the University of California, Berkeley has built an extraordinary record of achievement. Its faculty has produced 19 Nobel laureates, 5 Pulitzer Prize winners, 128 appointees to the National Academy of Sciences, and 30 winners of the National Medal of Science.
For nearly 60 years, the School of Public Health at UC Berkeley has helped promote and protect the health of Americans. It is one of the nation's leading research and teaching institutions in this field. Its internationally renowned faculty includes physicians, educators, psychologists, nutrition experts, epidemiologists, and public health professionals. Among its areas of research are: the control of cancer, the relationship between diet and disease prevention, occupational health, the link between social support and good health, and environmental health.
