I have a terrific resource for people who are physically active, especially outdoors. If you were to run into trouble (e.g. an accident--- you fall and sustain an injury; someone hits you while riding your bike or running/walking, you're older and have chest pains) someone needs to know your name and your emergency contact information. I thought about this while training for my first triathlons. What would happen if I had a problem in the water or the road whether I'm in my neighborhood or miles away? Then, I thought what if something were to happen at the gym or the park? So, I heard about this inexpensive way to help me feel more secure. It's called Road ID. It was originally meant for outdoor athletes but I have found it's great for everyone. I bought a couple of these and prefer the wrist version, although there are ankle and knee options as well. There is a customized engraved plate that's easy to read. Mine is a simple screaming yellow velcro strap with my name, my hubby's name and phone as well as my BFF's as a back up. Then you can even add a line of inspiration to power you through a challenging workout. I wear mine whenever I workout. It's waterproof and keeps me feeling secure that if, heaven forbid, something were to happen to me, people would know who to call. I think this is a really valuable resource and the only one out there. I would highly recommend everyone scope this out. Dr. PeekeView Thread
Over the past year I have lost 42 lbs. I have not tried to lose weight it is just happening. I have gone to 5 doctors and no one can tell me why. I have had all the blood test, upper GI, colonscopy, endoscopy, cancer tests and nothing shows up. I have gone from 130 lbs to 88 lbs. Does anyone out there have an answer? or can direct me to a Dr that may have treated this? Anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.View Thread

p.s. My mom was a Weight Watchers gal - she passed away in September and my brother and I found her dusty food scale in the back of the pantry! It must have been 25 years old and it still worked...View Thread
Cancer is one of the leading and increasing causes of death these days regardless of what gender, age, and economic status in life. It destroys life, happiness and self-confidence even on people that are capable of sustaining expensive cancer treatments. Cancer is developed because of many factors in the environment that affects people. Unhealthy lifestyle which constitutes poor healthy food choices, less active or sedentary physical activity, excessive weight or obesity, excessive consumption of fatty-carcinogenic foods, age, hereditary factors and many more.
If these factors are not properly managed, controlled, planned and prevented, breast cancer and other types of cancer may damage your body. Eating healthy foods, rich in antioxidants helps in fighting and preventing cancer cells to spread all over your body and damaging tissues and organ's normal function. This anti-cancer substance is abundantly present in whole grains, different kind of fruits and a wide variety of vegetables.
