As if you need another reason to rendezvous with your computer . . .
The Internet can be a time-saver.One site to sample: is Health World Online (http://www.healthy.net/a> ), which offers everything from online shopping at a health food store to free access to Medline, the database of the National Library of Medicine.
From the map on the home page, link to the Health Clinic, Fitness Center or Nutrition Center to get the skinny on diseases, fitness routines and healthy foods; for specific health questions, try one of the search tools in the Library.
Shop in the Bookstore, where you'll find more than 2,000 health-related titles as well as some healthy recipes and dieting tips. Get away from it all with Healthy Travel, where you can find a spa, retreat or cruise--with health-related themes, of course.
Be prepared to sift through some lengthy links on this site. But overall, Health World Online is easy to navigate and plump with free information and resources. And if you become a member--also free--you'll get the latest health news in Healthy Update, a bi-weekly e-newsletter.
