What are good health related web-sites that are not paleo-specific

Many of us frequent a number of the paleo sites listed here.

I'm specifically interested in what health-related sites you frequent that are not paleo-centered. I find it easy to be myopic when I read stuff that's "preaching to the choir" so I want to expand my horizons.

Some of my favorite non-paleo sites are:

What are some of your favorites?

Dr Mercola's site scares me. I once mistakenly signed up for his email newsletter and every day was a code red warning for some other toxic food I may or may not be consuming and a recommended supplement to fix it.

Chris Kresser has high cholesterol. That is not the epitome of health. Animals in the wild have what humans consider low cholesterol, and it is only when they begin eating from civilized trash cans (literally) that they develop high cholesterol.

I frequent Mercola's site and occasionally go to the WAP site. I have to say, though, anything on NYT is like reading National Enquirer.

I like Chris' site a lot but I think of him as paleo, although I like his broader perspective.

If a site isn't addressing nutrition in a meaningful sense then it isn't a good health site IMO. On that, if your addressing nutrition I don't know how you can do so without taking into account ancestral diets. That said, the site doesn't have to be "paleo" to do this.... WAPF is a good example....

For blood glucose issues and general information on pre-diabetes and diabetes, this site is very helpful: http://bloodsugar101.com

I found out about it on Chris Kresser's site, where he had this to say: " If you haven???t already, check out Jenny Ruhl???s excellent Blood Sugar 101 site. Jenny won???t tell you this herself, but she???s an authority on blood sugar and probably knows more about it than 99.9% of health care practitioners (she???s an author)."

Jenny's recommendations for "What is Normal Blood Sugar" are much lower than other sites I have seen, including Chris'.

The first health site I got all excited about was "worlds healthiest foods". whfoods.com I think. Turned me on to liver and seaweed and lots of fun stuff. That was at least seven or right years ago.

I like www.drcate, Dr. Cate Shanahan's site. Her book, Deep Nutrition, is a must-read, I think. She's done some very interesting research.
