Know About Health
Know About Health was officially launched on 10th May 2009. Passion for health care industry inspired this blog and Know About Health is as it sounds.
As they say “Prevention is better than cure”. Globally recognized studies inform that the awareness about basic health mitigate chances of contracting a disease. This has motivated many organizations to, not only innovate solutions for health problems, but to create programs for health awareness. Information technology has changed the dynamics of disseminating information on global level. You are just one click away from the information you need and a click is what you need to get aware of health issues through Know About Health (KAH).
Every life begins with a single unit called as “cell”. This single cell multiplies into many more and in human beings, ultimately leads to a complex yet well coordinated multi-functional “structure”. Well “cell” of the blog KAH has grown to a rich health information “source” with contributions from highly motivated team.
KAH multifunctional structure includes:
- Health News – You will find news about pharma, medical device or general health
- Health & Fitness – You will find information on fitness such as low carb diet or yoga
- Health-o-Meter – Health gadgets have made significant impact on individual life like glucose monitoring device
- iHealth – You will find this section dedicated to emerging health apps and information related to smart phones
- Diseases – You will find information on diseases, their common cause and so on like Diabetes
- Drugs – You will find information about drugs in this section like how does Lipitor work?

You must have heard that “The pen is mightier than the sword”. I think in today’s health information technological age “The pen is mightier than the pill”.
