    White background is better for any website but added colours makes it effective......

    Well, he asks a good background color for a health niche website.

    you can never go wrong with white. but i agree with helena. white on white is pretty boring, so try to mix it up with a color that you like.

    I think green or white would be a suitable colour. Because if you think health, you think nature so green would be good, but I would consider the background being white and the actual images and background images being green.

    For a health site, I would absolutely suggest either white, light blue/sky blue or light green. These colors are what I more often than not see on health niche web sites and they look actually first-class.

    Is this because of the mental association with a medical aid box e.g. red box with a white cross on it? In this case, green is also common but has less "emergency" feeling I guess?

    Leave it white period. It is not easy on the eyes when you start putting dark colors for a site's background. One thing I find to use as a rule of thumb is to cut off the lights and view a site. If I am able to SEE things around me clearly then the color works, if not time to rethink your color scheme.
