Nurses Help Other Women Stay Healthy

Thousands of nurses have spent nearly 30 years tracking their own health, monitoring everything from blood pressure, weight and pregnancies. Now, the results are in and it has become one of the most important sources of women's health information in the country. It's called the Nurses Health Study. In it, you will find answers to your questions on everything from the effects of smoking on a woman's heart, to which vitamin supplements are really the most useful.

"The Nurses Health Study is truly a treasure trove in terms of understanding ways to prevent chronic disease in women," says Joann Manson at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
