Publisher: National Institutes of Health (U.S.)

Description: MedlinePlus has a wide palette of interesting resources, and this corner of their prodigious website is well worth a close look. First-time visitors can start with the resources profiled on the website which include interactive videos on fighting colon cancer and how to screen for depression. Furthermore, the Calculators & Quizzes area includes an alcohol calorie calculator along with a "Can You Recognize a Heart Attack?" quiz. There's a bit of fun and whimsy in the Games area where one can learn about the immune system via the "Immune System Defender Game Scrub Club" and a clutch of activities about the importance of sleep. Also, the site includes a section titled "Understanding Medical Words" that decodes some of the basic medical terminology that would be encountered in a routine visit to the doctor.
