Health Risk Appraisal.

http://www.diseaseriskindex.harvard.edu/update/english/

The website above is the Harvard Disease Risk Appraisal site. Here you can find out your risk of developing five of the most important diseases (cancer, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and stroke) and get personalized tips for preventing them. With cancer, it is necessary to evaluate your risk separately for each common cancer site.

The supporting evidence that makes up your risk and the interventions that would help you reduce such risk are clearly spelled out.
