SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 15 (UPI) -- Yahoo! launched Monday a health blog site to cover an array of topics including nutrition, allergies, yoga, sex and depression.

The Internet search-engine company will also allow celebrities to post blogs on health-related issues.

"Our goal is to provide health consumers with the most dynamic and informative content on the Internet, and these two new blogging programs are great examples," said Shawn Hardin, vice president of content operations for the Yahoo Media Group in a news release, adding that "whether reading personal stories from well-known survivors or interacting with actual health experts, blogging provides a powerful community experience for users looking for detailed health information and advice."

Celebrity bloggers who will be posting their comments include Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., physician Deepak Chopra and skater Peggy Fleming.
