Why Your Spouse Could be a Pain in the Neck – Literally!

New research shows that fighting with your husband, wife, or significant other can have an effect on your health.

People who rage with anger are likely to develop problems like high blood pressure and chest pains. Those who stuff their anger and stew silently are more likely to develop muscular pains, particularly in the neck or back.

Researchers stress the need for better communication between spouses/partners and, if necessary, the use of a professional counselor or therapist to help.

To Vape or Not to Vape

Vaping – the practice of smoking using an “electronic cigarette” has been touted as a safe alternative smoking, but is it really?

If you are a current tobacco smoker, the answer is – it’s safer than regular smoking, but it’s not safe.

Studies have confirmed that those who vape are 30% more likely to development chronic lung disease than those who don’t smoke at all. There are also preliminary reports that vaping may present other health problems.

So, the healthiest response would be – not to vape!

New DNA Testing Scam

If you get a call out of the blue from someone offering you a free DNA test to see if you’re at risk for cancer, hang up!

Authorities are saying this is one of the newest scams. The object is to get your Medicare number, so the fraudsters can use that to bilk Uncle Sam for phony medical procedures, prescriptions and equipment. The calls usually start with someone asking if there’s been a history of any cancer in your family. As most families have been touched in some way by this disease, the chances of you saying yes are high.

Remember, any testing should always be done at your doctor’s directive – not somebody you don’t know over the phone!
