Risks of Smoking

Cigarette smoking is the number 1 preventable cause of death in the United States. It has the potential to cause extensive damage throughout your body and puts you at a much higher risk for a number of diseases including lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, and COPD. Quitting smoking can significantly decrease your risk of smoking-related diseases and early death. There are a number of programs available to help you quit. Some of these programs include counseling, behavioral therapies, prescription and non-prescription products. If you are a smoker and are interested in quitting, talk to your doctor or pharmacist today!

Does an Apple a Day Really Keep the Doctor Away?

It always seems that the doctor is telling us to eat less sugar and more fruits and vegetables, why is that? Well, fruits and vegetables have many benefits over prepackaged foods. Canned foods and frozen dinners tend to be high in salt, and this extra salt can cause your blood pressure to go up. Candy and sugary drinks such as soda and iced tea, can have lots of artificial sweeteners and sugars which can make it hard to keep your blood sugar under control. By eating a diet that consists of natural foods such as fruits and vegetables and home cooked meals, you can better manage your health and cut down on health expenses.
