TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 21 Natural Health information publisher NaturalNews.com has launched a new online encyclopedia of natural health information called NaturalPedia.com.

NaturalPedia.com combines the wisdom of over 400 authors and 570 books that span over 50,000 unique health concepts, displaying collections of knowledge on specific topics such as "chlorella" or "vitamin D".

NaturalPedia also pairs two-term concepts such as "cancer and lycopene" or "diabetes and sugar". Almost any pair of terms relating to nutrition, disease prevention, herbal medicine or natural healing is contained in NaturalPedia.com's over one million web pages.

NaturalPedia is offered free to the world as a research tool for authors, students, researchers, consumers, medical professionals and journalists. It also helps support the authors whose books are cited on the website by publicizing their work, positioning the authors as frequently-quoted experts and linking directly to an Amazon.com page where readers may purchase the complete books to learn more.

Each book included in the site is given a unique page featuring a listing of key concepts covered in the book. See example at: http://www.naturalpedia.com/book_Encyclopedia_of_Natural_Medicine.html

To help users browse other books of interest, NaturalPedia also calculates and recommends conceptually-related books in the right column of each book page.

In all, NaturalPedia.com is a platform that helps inform readers with invaluable health wisdom gleaned from the pages of the industry's top books, but also a place where authors and publishers receive the proper credit for their work as well as free promotion that translates into more book purchases by interested readers.

NaturalPedia.com works hard to protect the intellectual property interests of authors and publishers. The site offers no way for readers to browse or copy the full text of any book. No more than five citations from any one book are used on a concept page, and each book is fully referenced with the authors' names, title and a clickable link to the book page where a "buy at Amazon.com" button is highly visible.

Furthermore, visitors to NaturalPedia.com who use the website for research are specifically reminded that if they use such quotes, they are required to cite the original author and title of the book, in addition to the NaturalPedia.com page.

In this way, NaturalPedia partners with the industry's top authors to publicize and promote their outstanding work while helping share extremely important knowledge with the world.
