Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - Your Online Source for Credible Health Information

CDC.gov Features deliver actionable and timely health, safety and wellness messages.  Here is a preview of the CDC.gov Health and Safety features of the week: 


Cancer and Men - Every year, cancer claims the lives of nearly 300,000 men in America. There are ways to reduce the risk for some of the most common types of cancer in men.

CDC-TV Blood and Fears - A new CDC-TV video details how more than one quarter of U.S. adults have prediabetes, which puts them at high risk for type 2 diabetes. The video explains how weight loss and regular physical activity can reduce the risk by nearly 60 percent.  The keys are to know your risk and take steps to stay healthy.

Elder Abuse Prevention - Elder maltreatment is a significant public health problem. Each year, hundreds of thousands of adults over the age of 60 are abused, neglected, or financially exploited.

Home Safety - During Home Safety Month—and all year—take some simple hands-on steps to make your home safer. You can protect the ones you love by preventing child injuries at home.

National Congenital Cytomegalovirus (CMV) - CMV is the most common infection present at birth (congenital) in the U.S. More children have disabilities due to congenital CMV than other well-known congenital conditions. Learn about how to protect your baby from CMV.

National Men’s Health Week - Men can take daily steps to live a safer and healthier life, and protect themselves from disease and disability.

Salmonella and Backyard Flocks - Live poultry, such as chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys, often carry harmful germs called Salmonella. After you touch a bird, or anything in the area where they live and roam, wash your hands so you don't get sick!

CDC.gov feature articles are written by subject matter experts and health communicators, then edited to emphasize strong call-to-action messages and friendly, meaningful visuals. While most features are topic- or event-driven, some capture the full scope of CDC's work on cross-cutting topics such as staying healthy and safe over the holidays, sending kids back to school, or CDC's global programs and outreach. CDC Features may be syndicated to other Web sites at no cost. Learn more about Content Syndication
