Your Health Risk

Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention has free interactive questionnaires to help you determine your potential risk for 5 of the top diseases such as cancer (about 8 different types), diabetes, cardiovascular disease and more. Once your risk is determined, it will show you how lifestyle changes may reduce your risks. There are also fact sheets on the diseases.
