      The BC Health Guide is a fantastic health reference, containing authoritative explanation from cancers to something as basic as acne or even regular wound dressing or the common cold. It was produced by Healthwise, a non-profit organization devoted towards helping people make better health decisions. It is an excellent book, which I like having

      in my room, because you just never know when you will need it.

      Definitions and explanations are provided in a simple manner. The information can also be adequately detailed, for example the information about rosacea, which I suffer from. It is excessive redness of the face, which I was not originally aware could be triggered by certain skin care products, perfumes or even some sun block lotions. I find the explanations on nosebleeds or the common cold are likewise written in an excellent manner.

      The BC in the book title pertains to British Columbia, the most westerly province of Canada, which I have been calling home since late 2007. However,

      this does not mean that Canadians from other provinces cannot benefit from all the health information this book contains. After all, maladies like the common cold or acne affect all Canadians as well as people of other nationalities.

      I like the fact that it has a detailed table of contents and an index at the end,

      because that way, it is that much easier to find what I am looking for. With 430 pages of useful information, this guide should prove useful to anybody. In my opinion, the entries are composed to be readily understood by late grade school to high school students, which makes it that much more useful.
