From the Editor
 The Science of Staying Well
Throw the word “health” at Google,and you will retrieve, as I write this,about 958 million results. Alterna-tively, if you feel up to reading them,you could directly consult the medi-cal journals for information; the Na-tional Library of Medicine’s MED-LINE service indexes about 5,000 of them. If you are into health and fitness magazines, you probably have morethan 100 of those to choose from.Clearly, a world of health information is out there and readily availableif you want it. The problem is one of navigating through it to worthy desti-nations. Finding your way to relevant, trustworthy information, presentedin terms that are not only understandable but appealing to your interests, isstill a challenge.That is why we dare to think the magazine you hold in your hands,
Sci-entific American Body,
has something special to offer to the curious healthconsumer.
Scientific American
has been covering new developments in med-icine, science and technology for more than 162 years. It brings togetherleading health professionals and experienced journalists to explain the sig-nificance of new discoveries, the state of current knowledge and the brightpossibilities just coming over the horizon. And as the realm of knowledgeabout health and medicine continues to expand,
Scientific American
is proudto present new offerings in print and online to keep you informed about it.We believe that sophisticated health readers want more than a service-oriented breakdown of what to eat, what drugs to take and how to exercise.
Scientific American Body
therefore brings you just enough of the scienceunderlying health recommendations for you to draw your own conclusionsabout their solidity or even their safety. Yet we also realize that health andwellness is not purely a matter of medical science
that there is an artistryto healing that needs to take into account the whole of a person. Thus,
Body
 also includes voices of personal testimonial, discussing their own experi-ences with illness, recovery and prevention. We are also eager to take aclear-eyed look at the state of alternative medicine and to hail it for its suc-cesses or to criticize it for its failures, depending on what the data show.But
Body
is more than just this printed issue. Follow its links online towww.SciAm.com/Body, where you can further explore all these health top-ics and many more, through the full informational resources of 
ScientificAmerican.
You will also find there growing communities of patients, fam-ily members and health professionals ready to share their insights and hearwhat you have to say, too.Read on and be well.
