Health Literacy Affects Individuals' Health

More than a quarter of American adults have what’s called poor health literacy. They're likely to have trouble interpreting important written health information—or have difficulties communicating well with doctors and nurses. But does that mean they're actually more likely to miss taking scheduled medications or get sick?

Yes, say researchers who pored over nearly 100 recent studies looking at this issue. People with poor health literacy tend to be hospitalized more often, get fewer recommended screenings and are more likely to misunderstand instructions...
