HEALTH & FITNESS

Use subjects in this section for works aimed at nonprofessionals.  For scholarly works and/or works aimed at medical or health care professionals, use subjects in the MEDICAL section.

Subjects beginning with "HEALTH & FITNESS / Diseases" are intended for popular works that discuss preventing or coping with a specific disease (or type of disease) and/or for popular works describing the experiences of people with a specific disease (or type of disease).  For scholarly or professional works discussing diseases, use subjects in the MEDICAL section that pertain to the branch of medicine that studies the disease in question (if no specific branch of medicine applies, use subjects in the MEDICAL section for the specific disease or type of disease): for example, a textbook about cancer would be assigned "MEDICAL / Oncology"; a clinical work on AIDS research would be assigned "MEDICAL / AIDS & HIV".
