we get mail

I get emails now and then asking me to promote this product or blog about some specific topic. Normally I just delete them. I'm not interested in helping people sell their weight-loss gimmicks or in publicizing some issue that doesn't really interest me. But I thought I'd share this one with you:
It is clear from reading your blog on weight control, that you are concerned about women’s health. I wanted to let you know about the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s (NHLBI) Healthy Heart Handbook for Women 20th Anniversary Edition. The Handbook is one of the key educational materials for The Heart Truth, NHLBI’s national campaign for women about heart disease. Would you consider commenting on or linking to the Handbook?

The Handbook is packed with the latest information on preventing and controlling the risk factors for heart disease – the #1 killer of women. It’s the most up-to-date information on heart health in one easy-to-use guide. The 122-page full-color booklet offers practical suggestions for reducing the risk of heart-related problems as well as describes the warning signs of heart attack and how to get help quickly. This special anniversary edition also features a welcome letter from First Lady Laura Bush, The Heart Truth’s ambassador. The Healthy Heart Handbook for Women can be downloaded online and print copies are offered at special promotional pricing in honor of Mother’s Day through May 31, 2007. Ordering information for the Handbook is available at: http://emall.nhlbihin.net/product2.asp?sku=07-2720. Information about The Heart Truth Campaign can be found at: http://www.hearttruth.gov.
One of my many motivations for wanting to lose weight is because heart disease and diabetes run in my family, and I know that healthy weight loss can help me avoid those conditions. So I'm glad to do a little promotion for a good cause. You can view the handbook online at http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/hearttruth/material/hdbk_wmn.pdf

Here's to your health.
