None of the Static Media Websites provides medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment, only general information and discussions about health and related subjects.

All recipes, descriptions of recipes, or nutrition information available in the Static Media Websites are also only provided as general information, and you should not rely on any of this information for professional medical or nutritional expertise, diagnosis or recommendations.
In particular, nutrition information provided for recipes is an estimate only, calculated primarily by our partner edamam.com, using all ingredients identified in the list of ingredients. The actual nutritional content of food can be affected by multiple factors such as the specific brand of ingredient used, any substitutions, altering the amounts of ingredients for personal taste, and listing of ingredients which are discarded in whole or in part before eating (e.g., the ingredients of marinades or liquids used for poaching). Also, different nutritional databases or calculators can provide different results.
Static Media and/or its suppliers may make improvements and/or changes to the Static Media Websites at any time. Static Media reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to the Static Media Websites or any portion thereof at any time, without notice.
