    A short answer is just that--short and to the point. It may be the first sentence of the long answer or a brief sentence that answers the question. Short answers need to be less than 128 characters.

    You could start with the FDA’s website for food recommendations, http://www.fda.gov/Food/default.htm

    Food recommendations may also depend on the medical conditions that you have. Many of the national organizations for specific medical conditions will have food recommendations. Below are just a few of them: 

    • American Heart Association: http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=1200010
    • American Diabetes Association: http://www.diabetes.org/food-nutrition-lifestyle/nutrition.jsp
    • Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America: http://www.ccfa.org/info/diet
    • National Kidney Foundation: http://www.kidney.org/atoz/atozTopic_Nutrition-Diet.cfm

    Sharecare is to me what a great dog or best friend is, but one with expertise on all subjects, not just a provider of comfort and stress relief.

    This trusted source will help me to find answers to health questions (note: not just medical, but Wellness, with a capital W, as that’s how you stay healthy enough to avoid the medical system for longer than your dog’s grandchildren would be around).

    So when I want to find out how good the data is on Irvingia Gabonensis causing weight loss or the impact of HDL increases I can ask Sharecare. And bingo—if the answer isn’t there, they find the answer for me from some of the best experts in the world. Try doing that on a search engine. With the launch of Sharecare, I’m looking forward to finding even better answers, and with interactive videos that show me mechanisms. Yep, I can be a better doc, and a smarter consumer with Sharecare. It means a trusted best friend with expertise and to know for sure what is best for my health.
