This Week's Healthy Headlines


Wow...EVERYTHING I need to know about breast cancer? Thanks, Woman's Day! ;-) But I think I'll stick with my doctors when it comes to what I need to know about anything medical.... Report
How sad that the article on Breast Cancer says nothing about how much BREAST FEEDING helps to prevent future Breast Cancer. The huge profit made by Formula companies to keep women from nursing their infants certainly takes over what is nature's best for prevention of this disease. Nursing removes old cells and stimulates new ones, so it is nature's best method of preventing this illness. After pregnancy breast feeding is the natural part of the cycle. Report
I read blanket stew. I never even considered making a soup/stew without meat.... Yummy and healthy. I like it. Report
RE: When a Mammogram is not enough. I know that the best advice is to always have copies of your reports sent directly to you. You are informed and can make your own decisions. Report
Blanket stew....not for me. Report
Read the blanket stew - but some of the ingredients are not things I have "on hand" at all! Report
Loved the yoga poses. They are great for you, if you can do them. You can modify them to suit yourself. Report
OH MY GOSH, ABOUT MCDONALDS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Report
The mammogram one scared me (as did the Happy Meal, which I don't eat but will tell my friends with children about). I just had a mammogram and the letter said, "Congratulations...normal." I see my new ob-gyn next month and I will ask her to get the full report and read it for me. Report
That Happy Meal will stick in my mind... never ate one, I stick to their pancakes, but still.... Report
The Australian Govt lets me know when my Mammergram is due
I have recently updated my private health cover to cover the things I might need as I get older without being on the public waiting list which can be 1-2 yrs.
That is why this senior on a pension pays for her own private health cover. Report
Pumpkin Date bars and the time to check the fine print article - annual renewal time with my employer and my husband will be 65 in a week! Report
McDonald's Meal: Keep in mind it isn't just McDonald's food. I'm sure results would be the same with any other restaurant. Anything that helps people limit their consumption of processed foods is good in my opinion.

Eating at Desk: I eat at my desk but I bring my lunch. I bring a big salad that I make with a variety of greens and vegetables, an apple, and chicken, a boiled egg, or an almond butter sandwich. I like to earn sparkpoints and eat my lunch in peace and quiet. The rest of the day I am surrounded by people.

Blanket stew: It sure looks better before it is cooked for 1.5 hours. Maybe some of the veggies could be added at the end.

Yoga Poses: Some we can do with WiiFit and variations of the triangle pose are done with Leslie Sansone.

Mammogram: Anyone with breasts should read this article for sure! And send it to others. Report
Blanket stew sounds to die for. Definitely going on the recipe list for next week! Report
In regards to the Happy Meal article: Food I've left out forgotton has also not molded etc but dehydrated instead, our homes are relatively dry temp controlled spaces, so of course no mold. I noticed there didn't appear to be mustard, ketchup, pickle or the dehy onions, so what moisture would be available to help feed mold? Just a dry hamburger patty and bun, yuck! We need stop blaming others for our inability to watch what we eat. Stop watching so much TV and excercise! Report
