Last week we talked about the different causes of food poisoning, and the symptoms they cause. This week I wanted to talk about how to keep yourself safe and prevent food poisoning. You have probably heard the basic rule which says to keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. I want you to know more than just the basic rule, so that you can stay well throughout the picnic season and beyond.

This is the time of year when we like to picnic and cook and eat outside. I thought we should talk about germs and illnesses that might come from food, especially if food is not cooked or stored correctly.

Getting too little sleep, called sleep deficiency, can lead to some serious physical and mental health problems, and can also put you at higher risk for injuries, and even a higher risk of death.  Sleep, just like breathing, eating, and drinking, is a basic human need.  Sleep plays a very important role in your health and well-being for your entire life.

Are you a camper? Or, does your family want you to be? My idea of roughing it is a limited-service hotel. But, my husband and son have determined this is the year they’ll win me over to being in the great outdoors for longer than just a barbecue.

I’ve done some camping “research” (ok, mainly asking friends and watching shows like Running with Bear Grylls). Still, I’m sharing 4 tips to make camping more tolerable, oops…I mean more enjoyable.

Do you get an annual physical or regular check-ups? An op-ed piece in the New York Times suggested we skip our annual visit to the doctor. Why? Apparently after years of solid research, it was found that “annual physicals did not reduce mortality overall or for specific causes of death from cancer or heart disease.”

My wife was told she needs knee surgery. After looking into surgery, stem cell and many other options, we contacted our Advocate.

 

 

 



 

She sent a list of facilities for us to check out along with the cost for each, which is very helpful.
