NHLBI Study Shows Weight Concerns Increase Girls’ Risk Of Becoming Smokers

As busy women living complex lives, we are sometimes overwhelmed by the amount of health information and misinformation in the media and on the Internet. This web page has been designed by the National Women's Health Information Center (NWHIC) to provide women with information they can trust about how to stay well and feel good about ourselves.

Consider these facts:

bulletFewer than 60% of women engage in physical activity on a regular basis.
bulletOne out of five Americans order take-out food every day.
bulletIn a 1996 survey, 56% of women and 43% of men disliked their overall appearance.
bulletMore than ninety percent of people with eating disorders are women.

As we try to maintain good health, it is important to concentrate on both our mental health and our physical health. We must also concentrate on our body image and self-confidence. Society's pressure on women to look a certain way can lead to a sense of failure and even depression. Fashion models weigh 23% less than the average female, yet many men and women still consider the underweight body type to be normal and healthy. Now, more than ever, there are many organizations geared towards teaching women to appreciate the differences in our bodies and take charge of our health every day.

The National Women's Health Information Center (NWHIC) has designed this page to provide information for women who would like to learn how to improve their health, start a physical activity program, eat better, learn about eating disorders, and learn about total mind/body wellness. By clicking on the above buttons, you will find information from the federal government and other approved sources. These resources are designed to encourage all of us, as women, to become educated about our bodies and minds to improve our overall health.
