CDC offers e-card tips

So when is right occasion to suggest an STD test or wish someone a seizure-free day?

Hallmark isn’t making greeting cards about folic acid or colonoscopies, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a whole line aimed at improving health.

You can e-mail an e-card suggesting that the recipient limit salt intake or know the normal range for blood pressure. Actor Jimmy Smits appears on a card advising colorectal screenings.

Once you click to open the card, you are given some quick health facts and a Web site for more information.

To browse the selection, go to www2a.cdc.gov/ ecards/browse.asp?actbrs. Cards are also available in Spanish.
