Magazine Prevention is a must read for me each and every month. I have had medical training but still enjoy the many numerous articles.
I also love the tips on diet, excercise and many subjects it offers.
It has so many subjects in it, and not just an ordinary magazine that takes five minutes to read...
Your interest will be soley on finishing the reading......more info
VALUABLE HEALTH INFORMATION, A TREASURE TROVE OF KNOWLEDGE!!! Why spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars on workouts at health clubs when you can get more great workouts at home using many of the routines in here? Why buy tons of other magazines about beauty, diet, and other women's health concerns when you can get it all in one compact magazine?
It is all in here and I've tested many of the tips in the publication (the ones both men and women can use) and you know what? They worked, at least for me. what I really like about the magazine is that its clean. It's not filled with tons of sex articles, it's filled with info that could very well save your life, and at the very least could make your health a lot better.
Ad Overboard I received a free yearly subscription after enjoying Stonyfield Farms yogurt. I found absolutely no content worthy of reading. 75% of the tiny magazine was ads for medications, which I live a much more natural lifestyle than that. This magazine was not for me. I'll stick to my Women's Health Magazine!...more info
Prevention Magazine is very informative and useful I thoroughly enjoy this magazine. It has so many articles pertaining to health issues and healthier living. Articles about daily living, and stories about people who have had lifestyle changes. All aspects of health are covered in this magazine. It discusses medications, vitamins, sleep issues, diet and exercise. Plus, it is a handy size to slip into my purse, so I take it with me and can read it when I am waiting for an appointment or just have a few minutes. ...more info
Prevention Magazine Purchased this from AMAZON.COM on sale for 5 bucks for 1 yr. I enjoy this magazine because it reads sort of like Readers Digest example: short Concise articles and it is the same compact size as readers digest. I will renew this subscription again....more info
Very Good!! This is a very good magazine, where you can find
all kinds of good information about heath and
delicious recipes that you will enjoy!!...more info
WATCH OUT! YOU CAN BECOME THE VICTIM OF A SCAM BY RODALE IF YOU DON"T RESUBSCRIBE!!! Think you want to subscribe to Prevention Magazine? Think again. The Rodale Corporation (Rodale, Inc.), which publishes this magazine and others, uses a scam to squeeze money out of unsuspecting consumers who have subscribed to their magazines and then decided not to renew the subscription. After several attempts to send you renewal invoices and other scare tactics, you'll receive a collection notice from the North Shore Collection Agency demanding money and raising the threat of debt delinquency. For most of us, this translates into a tarnished credit report.
Please let your friends, family, co-workers, and other people in your life know about this deceptive scare tactic to fleece money from folks. The North Shore Agency is the subject of lawsuits and under investigation by Attorneys General in various states. To learn more, Google North Shore Agency and magazine subscriptions. You'll learn about this rip-off. Stay informed and be aware of all the other magazines Rodale publishes.
Maybe Amazon will look into this shady practice on behalf of its customers........more info
Staying Healthy the Easy Way As a long-time subscriber to Prevention magazine I whole-heartedly recommend it to everyone. It offers new treatments for a variety of medical problems, new products for working out, age-fighting ideas, healthy food tips and even make-up suggestions. And, with it's convenient smaller size, it fits easily in your handbag or briefcase so it's always there when you have time to kill (like when you're waiting in line or eating lunch alone). These are just a few reasons this magazine is one of my favorites. Order it today! ...more info
Delivering to the wrong person The magazine is being delivered to me instead of the person I ordered it for....more info
Monthly motivation for living healthy life Upbeat magazine that provides motivation and advice on how to eat well, exercise, and live a full, healthy life. The articles are very brief. Photos for the exercises and recipes are bright and helpful. Geared toward women. The compact size makes it easy to through in a purse or coat pocket to take along whenever you might have a few minutes to read and get re-energized. Great bonus is that it is well organized for finding articles on the topics you want....more info
Content OK, Service HORRIBLE I find the actual articles to be okay but there ARE a ton of ads!!! A first-time subscriber and it took over 2 months to get the first issue then I am continuously having to complain about not getting my subscriptions. They say they have no control of the delivery once it is in the mail. They will send copies. Why am I paying to get old copies sent to me? I think their department that deals with subscriptions need some SERIOUS help. My sister orders from Rodale (another magazine though)and she also has the same problem....maybe they should run an article on dealing with stress as that is all I am getting.....of course, I may have to wait a few months before I actually get that article, come to think of it. :)...more info
Great Magazine I subscribe to Prevention and my daughter-in-law read the magazine at my house. She loved it and put in a "wish list" request for Christmas.
Delivery issues I love Prevention Magazine which is why I ordered a 2-year subscription. I ordered in March. By May had received nothing, wrote a complaint, got a July issue, then got June, August and September at once...an extension of my 2-year order date, and nothing else to date. I am awaiting a response as it has been about 3 months since I received that last set of magazines. Would I recommend this to someone else? NO. Why 2 stars? Because the actual content of the magazine is good but the service is NOT....more info
Ads GALORE, not enough content I realize every publication has to depend on advertising as well as subscribers to suceed, but Prevention Magazine just has too much advertising. I buy a magazine to read the content, not to get ads stuffed down my throat.
I feel like others that the magazine has changed since I used to read my moms' subscription.
The Jan. 2009 issue has the following: a 24 pg. insert trying to SELL a book, ads for Welches - 2 pg spread, Fruit of the Loom - 1 pg, Chevy - 1 pg, GNC - 1 pg, Robitussin - 1 pg, Alli - 1 pg, (I'm up to only pg. 8), Nature's Path - 1 pg, NyQuil - 1 pg, Spot Shot - a 2 pg spread, Zetia - 4 pg spread, One Touch - 2 pg spread, Splenda - 1 pg, Walmart - 1 pg, Mucinex - 1 pg, Restasis - 2 pg spread, Vicks - 1 pg, Nature's Bounty- 1 pg, truvia - 1 pg, Weight Watchers - spread over 3 pages, Imodium - 1 pg, Spiriva - 4 pg spread, Campbell's - 1 pg, Lipton - 1 pg, Morningstar - 1 pg, another Campbell's -1 pg., Healthy Ones - 1 pg, pg. 78 has 6 ads on one page, AARP - 1 pg, Blue Diamond - 1 pg, Enablex - 4 pg spread.....must I go on only at pg.102 our of 165 pg. magazine? I think you get the idea. If I counted correctly, 45 of the first 102 pages are ads leaving just 57 pages to read. I didn't include the 24 page insert nor the FULL page Prevention ads. If I included their own ads, the ratio would come closer to 50% advertising!
I gave this a 3 month chance and cancelled today!...more info
Excellent Price I was glad to find this offer on Amazon. It was an excellent price and i will be sure to renew when the time comes.
great little magazine i just love this little magazine; I like the little, easily held, format, as well as the great content. I have learned a lot from reading this magazine and would highly recommend it. Initially, by the title, for some reason, I assumed it was for older people, but I ordered it at age 38, and it is one of my favorites. ...more info
DO NOT SUBSCRIBE Readers. Be aware of subscribing to Prevention Magazine unless you want to get your credit ruined by North Shore Collection Agency. I have been trying to cancel the magazine continously and they don't acknowlege it at all. Prevention Magazine (Rodale) will decept you into renewing and if you try to cancel over and over, they will send you a letter from Collection Agency saying that you own them money.
The choice is yours. There are lots of previous subscribers having the same situation. I thought I was the only one. Check "Complaints for Prevention Magazine" on Google.......
Good information I recently received my first 2 magazines. They arrived pretty soon after I ordered. I enjoyed the articles and recipes that help you learn about living a healthier lifestyle. When I'm finished, I pass the issues on to my mom and sister....more info
Prevention is great Didn't know you could order magazines on Amazon. First 2 issues came within a month. Love this magazine. It has great tips and research for your health! ...more info
Everyone should read Prevention... Every month, I find incredibly important health info in this magazine. The info on the latest nutrition studies make this a must read....more info
What Happened to the "80's" Prevention with Real Articles?? I started my first subscription to this one in 1980-81. It was EXCELLENT!! It had all kinds of great advice and help on real issues relating to "preventing" ailments/conditions. Now it's a little advertising manual for drug users and fad dieters! Wow...what a change now. I'm not interested in "paying" to read ads. I'll get my motivation and information on more reliable sources. Besides, I got tired of all the little order forms that kept falling out on my lap while I rode the stationery bike! What a waste of trees. :(...more info
Main focus seems to be selling diet books This magazine seems most interested in promoting books, etc. that it has a financial interest in--most notably lately the South Beach Diet. Prevention and it's website are now full of misleading banner ads promoting irresponsible dieting techniques and fads. Too bad, because more than ever nowadays we could use a nice little magazine about nutrition, weight loss, exercise and natural remedies that isn't influenced by it's publishing partners and advertisers. Skip this one, and try Self or Health for a more well-rounded look at women's heath needs....more info
Sad (de)-evolution into a fluff magazine... Back in the 1970's my grandmother subscribed to Prevention. At that time, it was a wonderful magazine, filled with informative articles aimed at the "Prevention" of illness and the promotion of wellness (as the founder of Prevention, J.I. Rodale had preached). Articles about the role of vitamins and nutrition were light years ahead of their time. (J.I. can be given a lot of credit for bringing vitamins and supplements to the mainstream). Over the years, and especially after the tragic death of Robert Rodale (J.I.'s son), and the takeover by his wife and daughter, it has unfortunately transformed into a fluffy, tabloid-like "women's magazine" with scantily clad women on the covers, and one- or two-page articles instructing women to get killer abs and burn the fat. I think J.I. Rodale is probably spinning in his grave to see what his descendents have done to butcher this magazine, which bears NO resemblence whatsoever to what it used to be. I flipped through a copy in disgust recently to note, as another reviewer has stated, plenty of ads for DRUGS which really seems to go against the idea of preventing illness in the first place (whereas the old Prevention sang the praises of vitamins and health foods). I don't know why the Rodale family doesn't just scrap the title and call it something else, but alas, they are a major corporation now and I have little hope that this magazine will improve any time soon....more info
guilty pleasure Prevention is more of a guilty pleasure to me than anything else. It's definitely not a magazine that you file away with your beloved books (I do that with Victoria, Real Simple, and O), but you take a little something from each issue. It does contain a lot of excellent information ranging from herbs to emotional health to physical conditions, but the articles are really more than one or two pages long (at the most) and it doesn't take long to read from cover to cover. Regardless, I enjoy it, and usually learn something new and interesting with each issue. I'm not a complete health nut, but I am interested in long term issues and try to look out for myself. Most health magazines (with the exception of Health) are too specific- each article really only applies to a certain group of people, but most of the articles in Prevention apply to the entire readership as a whole. There's very few of us out there not struggling with stress or interested in ways of preventing heart disease or cancer....more info
Tons of Ads, and Little Content This is not my favorite fitness magazine. This is the size of a Reader's Digest, but is packed with ads just like a Beauty Magazine. I find this a bit disappointing considering the breadth of information they tend to cover. They share reasonable and attainable goals, and suggestions for us normal people. The magazine seems to cover a wide age group, with information that is good for both young and old. They do offer recipes, workout suggestions, and much more. The magazine takes little time to read, and seems to only serve as a springboard for more follow up on topics you enjoy. I think this is a better magazine to browse through at the supermarket than to purchase....more info
