- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- Tons of Tidbits
There are very few serious articles in this magazine-- just tons of tidbits (stats/facts/tips). By the time you get to the end it's difficult to recall anything from the magazine; it's that shallow.
Occasionally there's a good recipe, but that's about it....more info
- Prevention Magazine
Informative articles but way too much advertising and inserts. It is weird how many drugs are advertised in a magazine devoted to health. Is it subsidized by drug companies? Trying to promote a healthful life style or promoting drugs? The extent of the advertising undermines its message....more info
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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- Sent to Collection Agency After Cancellation of this Magazine!
I ordered Prevention Magazine, and did not like it. When I got the bill, I sent a cancellation notice, and got no more of them. Just today I got a notice from a collection agency for the entire subscription amount! I will NEVER order this magazine, and will tell my friends of this experience!
"Risk Free Guarantee
If you find that within the first 90 days of placing an order you are not 100% satisfied - for any reason - let us know and we will gladly give you a full, prompt refund. Any issues you may have received are yours to keep!"
- 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
- 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.
I love this magazine. It is EASY reading and what you read is easy to digest. There are so many tidbits of information that I find so useful. It makes me want to live a healthier life, and also have a healthier family. Since subscribing to it, I find that I have changed the way I do a lot of things. It's my favorite magazine which I compare to a ray of sunshine. ...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.......
- The Magazine Diva says.......
Prevention is a magazine anyone can benefit from with great ideas on easy lifestyle changes. On the flip they are not very specific, although geared more toward a female audience. Some issues are excellent and some are average, but always informative and positive, never condesending....more info
- 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
