This document is the fifth in the series, BIBLIOGRAPHIES ON EDUCATIONAL TOPICS (BETS), providing topical searches of ERIC literature in the scope areas of teacher education and health education, physical education, and recreation education. Here, the subject of consumer health is treated bibliographically. Included are topics dealing with the wise selection of health products and services, agencies concerned with the control of these products and services, evaluation of quackery and health misconceptions, health careers, and health insurance. Citations were selected from the two files contained in the ERIC data base: RESOURCES IN EDUCATION (RIE) and CURRENT INDEX TO JOURNALS IN EDUCATION (CIJE). RIE abstracts documents generally unavailable commercially; citations provide, in addition to bibliographic data and the abstract, the document's accession (ED) number and its availability in either microfiche (MF) or "hard-copy" (HC) from the ERIC Document Reproduction Service (EDRS). An EDRS order form with current price schedule is included at the end of this bibliography. When a document is not available from EDRS, an alternate source is given. CIJE indexes articles from educational journals. Annotations are supplied where article titles are not self-explanatory. CIJE articles are not reproduced by ERIC. The reader is referred to the original journals, available in many libraries. (JD)
