      This is one of those free magazines that you can pick up at your health food shop. "Best of Health" seems to come out regularly, every month. It looks glossy, but there's not much substance to it at all. Out of the total 32 pages, only 10 are actually articles - the rest is either adverts or "advertorial". The articles that there are, on subjects such as organic food, and other health issues, are not very well researched, with the subjects given a brief, cursory treatment. The big danger, with health writing in particular, is that people might believe this kind of thing, go out and buy vitamins, supplements or whatever is being promoted, at the expense of living healthily and going to get proper medical advice. I know that the purpose of most free magazines like this is just to persuade you to buy products - many of which you will no doubt not actually need. (For example, a product that's supposed to get extra oxygen into your system - what's wrong with a brisk walk up a hill?) But this magazine is just blatant advertising. It's really just like junk mail - steer clear.
