Healthwise. It's no alternative to live, professional medical attention, but the Web is rich with insights about illness and wellness. Start with former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop's site (www.drkoop.com), with its wealth of information on women's, men's and children's health; prescription drugs, and more. Guidance from a well-respected source can be found at the Mayo Clinic's Health Oasis (www.mayohealth.org). Visitors can jump to one of nine specialties: Alzheimer's, cancer, children's health, heart, medicine, men's health, nutrition, women's health, and allergy and asthma. Nutrition news is the focus of the Center for Science in the Public Interest (www.cspinet.org), which publishes Nutrition Action Healthletter. An extensive (and free) health assessment is available at Health Central (www.healthcentral.com). Results fall under these headings: health, age and life expectancy; greatest life risks; your good health habits; habits you could change, and preventive care. Know someone who's not feeling well? Send a get-well card from the Fat Cat Cafe (www.fatcatcafe.com/postoffice/cardrack15.html) or Blue Mountain Arts (www1.bluemountain.com/eng/getwell/).
