Great health writing goes way beyond scaring people or selling miracle cures. Though there are plenty of risky topics that the public should be aware of or take precautions for (flus, general hygiene, meat preparation, general sanitation), there are also other topics that shouldn't be scary once you know the right info (Ebola! Zika!) Joe B. believes the best health stories are ones that connect with and help readers, not just frighten them. He has written health and wellness news over the last 20 years, which includes dozens of physicians and four larger medical centers. He currently edits and writes for a semi-annual health and wellness magazine and a monthly cannabis/marijuana section. He also likes to connect health issues to other areas of the community, such as schools, business, politics, and family life. These days, with so much attention on health, readers need objective, accurate and not necessarily frightening medical advice.
