Catherine from women 4 hope gave Three Tips For Healthy Living this week. Two of the tips I talk about quite a bit myself – nutrition and exercise. But she also brings up another good one I wouldn’t have thought about: “Give yourself some “me” time each and every day, even if you think you don’t need it.”. Being alone sometimes is definitely something I need!
The Women’s Hair Loss Project is a web site for women who have lost or are losing their hair to share their stories. I haven’t lost mine – but I know some women in my family lose quite a bit as they get older. Plus sometimes stopping birth control pills can result in hair loss! I hadn’t realized that before!
Tara from Aetiology wrote about Streptococcus agalactiae (“GBS”) recently which is “one of the most common causes of meningitis in newborns”. I had never heard of before, but then I’ve never had a baby. Tara also wrote about the recent Facebook fiasco where they deleted all pictures of women breastfeeding their babies. What the hell is wrong with people anyway?
Ruth at Eating Fabulous wrote about two foods I really like recently: spinach and pumpkin pie! I eat spinach nearly everyday! Either in a salad or steamed. If it protects me from ovarian cancer too, that’s even better! The pumpkin post just made me hungry! I’d love to try that pumpkin butter, too bad they add sugar to it. I guess it wouldn’t be sweet enough by itself – but if it was sweetened with fruit juice that might be good. And by the way Ruth – I’m from the town that Popeye came from!
Angioplasty celebrated its 30th birthday recently! Before then “1 in 4 heart attack patients died, today over 95% survive!” – from A Hearty Life.
The Cheerful Oncologist reports some good news – “The US Senate is looking at a bill that would force pharmaceutical companies to disclose any payments or gifts they make to doctors.”. I honestly couldn’t tell if The Cheerful Oncologist himself is for or against it though, but it sounds like a good idea to me.
And lastly – there is a site about HPV testing that you may would to visit soon: theHPVtest.com “offers information regarding HPV and cervical cancer, as well as testimony from cancer survivors and an opportunity to sign up for an OBGYN appointment reminder. You can also sign up to receive a free “Choose to Know” bracelet.”
