Our names are Colin and Wesley and we are ABCs (American-Born Chinese). We are currently in the college and high school in California, USA. In 2005, we visited
and had a great time. While there, we saw many wonderful sights and
were very impressed by how modern
is. But we also observed that many kids our age don't always practice some basic health
habits. A lot of diseases can be prevented just by practicing these
simple habits. Our grandmother was a doctor, and she would often quote Benjamin Franklin, the famous person in American history, that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
This means that it is easier to prevent sickness in the first place
rather than trying to treat the sickness.
So, we decided to make this website to share some things about health
issues that you may not know about. We also hope the site can help
you practice and improve your English. If you put your mouse cursor
over the words in red
for a moment, a box with the word in Chinese will appear. By
the way, we researched the information for this website from
textbooks and other trustworthy sources. Then the information was
reviewed for accuracy by Dr. Clare F. Ji, who is a medical doctor.
you enjoy our site!
