Did you know about Google Health? In case you didn't, it got a slew of upgrades that might convince to take a first or second look.

The biggest and most obvious revamp can be seen on the new dashboard, which gathers all of a user's personal health goals, activities and results in a single section.

This makes the service all the more useful for anyone on a specific diet, using several medications or just very busy in general because the dashboard is convenient and easy to see how everything balances all in one place.

Along with additional personalization options throughout Google Health, users can also journal and add notes to specific activities as well as sync information from other fitness online services like CardioTrainer and FitBit.

Naturally, many people might question the security of putting all of their medical information online. Google Health has been questioned in the past. But Google asserts that they won't sell any of your information nor will any of it pop up in search results. However, some of it might be reflected anonymously in Google Trends, say if you had the flu, for example. For further information, Google Health has an extensive FAQ section on security for you to check out.
