The Wall Street Journal reports today on several web sites that adults can use to calculate their health risk for various diseases. The Journal highly recommends a comprehensive risk assessment site created by the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention. The site called “Your Disease Risk” also offers an customized action plan. I just tried to log onto the site, which has been receiving 2000 visits per day and the Journal article has crashed the site. So try it out in a few days.
The Journal gives honorable mention to a heart attack risk assessment offered by the American Heart Association and a breast cancer risk assessment offered by the National Cancer Institute.
