An Aspirin a Day

Mar 21 2012

You probably have heard about the medical benefits that an aspirin a day can provide in regards to preventing heart attacks.  Now new research shows that taking that same daily aspirin may help lower your risk of cancer.  Visit CNN to read on the Health Blog, Can an Aspirin a Day Keep Cancer Away?.  Keep in mind that aspirin can increase a person’s risk for stomach bleeding so be sure to discuss this topic with your physician.

Do you suffer from snack attacks?  Many people do, so be sure that you make the best choices when it comes to eating between meals.  On USA Today you can read, Is Oversnacking Becoming the Norm in Our Nation?.  Learn whether that feeling is real hunger or perhaps just boredom.  And if you do grab a snack, be sure to make a healthy choice to hold you over till the next meal.
