Government Reports on Health

The following government reports were selected by GovSpot.com editors as meaningful or noteworthy:



Nutritional Guidelines
MyPyramid gives nutritional guidelines for your specific age, sex and level of physical activity. The advice helps you control portions and make sure you are getting the right amount of each food category.



Prescription Drug Abuse
The National Institute on Drug Abuse estimated that about 48 million people have used prescription drugs for reasons other than medical in their lifetime. Hoping to reduce the abuse of such drugs, the agency released a report, Prescription Drugs: Abuse and Addiction (September 2005), which contains information about various drugs, as well as prevention and treatment.






Secondhand smoke
The Surgeon General's report (June 2006) on the health consequences of secondhand smoke concluded that there is no risk-free level of exposure. The only way to remove the risk is to eliminate smoking from indoor spaces.



Drug Use Study
About 11.1 million Americans over the age of 12 have tried MDMA/Ecstasy, according to a 2006 report on Club Drugs by The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. The study also includes the psychological and physical damage done by Ecstasy, Rohypnol, GHB and ketamine.



Health Literacy
A study by the National Center for Education Statistics found that 53 percent of American's have an intermediate level of health literacy. People with lower levels were more likely to get their health information from television, as opposed to those with higher levels who received health information from written sources.



Cancer Report
The National Cancer Institute gives a proposed budget for the 2008 fiscal year, showing how they will spend the nation's money to eliminate the suffering and death due to cancer. Great steps have been made and today more than two-thirds of people diagnosed with cancer can expect to live for five years or longer, according to the report.
