Website Layout and Organisation

What is a Health Sachet?

  • A sachet means a tiny packet containing a small amount of something.
  • Each article on this website contains compact health tips and ideas. Hence the articles are called 'Health Sachets'.
  • Of course, there are some important articles that are long and detailed.
  • Such articles could be new research that challenges medical wisdom (running does not cause knee arthritis), a compilation of current knowledge (can fasting make you live longer?), or a modern health hazard that has not caught the popular media fancy (air pollution causes lung cancer in more people than smoking does).

Layout of the website?

  • The website is divided into 3 parts:
  • ⦿ Illnesses;
  • ⦿ Nutrients; and
  • ⦿ Living, which refers to a stage of life, or a specific concern such as pollution, digital world, etc.
  • Each article is listed under at least one of these three.
  • Illnesses cover the body systems affected. When too many body systems are involved, the ones that most commonly affected are selected.
  • Rest of the website is self-explanatory.
  • You can search for a specific topic by clicking on the lens (🔍) icon.

Can I trust the articles?

  • All articles have links to reputed sources, such as medical papers or world-renowned medical websites. So, one can easily cross-verify the information.
  • At the end of many articles, a list of links is given with a heading "To Read More". Do go through them as occasionally, I have left out important matters because those articles may explain the points better.
  • The website avoids all the hype and pseudoscience present on the internet.
  • So you can safely trust the contents of this website.
