Why Hive Health Media?
Developed nations are currently facing an obesity epidemic.Â Rates of obesity–already astronomical in proportions are increasing every year.Â Yup, we’re all getting fatter and less active one year at a time. Â In fact, over the past ten years, obesity rates have increased approximately 10% both in Canada as well as the United States.
Hive Health Media’s goal is simply health promotion. Â We strive to provide not only breaking news in the health and fitness niches, but also to provide general advice (from experts in their field) to our readership. Â We not only regularly publish news stories on breaking health and fitness topics, but we also engage our readers by allowing them to share their views to create dialogue and discussion.
[colored_box color=”green”]Let’s face it, the more attention, dialogue, and debate centered around topics pertaining to health and fitness can only be a good thing in the midst of this crisis. If you find reading our site on a daily basis helps to keep you motivated to eat healthier and stay more active, then we’re doing our jobs here.[/colored_box]
Yeah But You Have Ads on Your Site?
Sure do.Â Hosting isn’t cheap–we currently spend thousands of dollars per year hosting 3 websites (this site, Health Habits, and Supplement Updates).
Part of the ad revenue also goes to paying our contributing writers for health news stories.
Oh yeah, and we also make a few extra dollars to pay for a dinner out now and again too.
