As smokers though, we learn to effectively tune out the particulars in the damage reports about smoking-related disease. Looking too closely can cause a head on collision with realities of the damage we’re inflicting on our bodies and turns smoking ‘enjoyment’ into a guilty, fearful experience.

Elation and euphoria are the norm for a mother giving birth and looking at her child for the first time and I was no different. I was instantly in love.

If you call their local or toll free number before 7:00 pm this evening, you can speak directly to one of their “Doctors on Call” during a call in program. Dr. Allen Mask of Raleigh, a regular on the news show, is helping Dr. Jeffrey Engel of the NC Department of health and human services to oversee primary care doctors reponding to medical questions.

An estimated 174,470 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed, and 162,460 deaths will occur during 2006 from lung cancer in the united states alone.

So what can you do? If the bugs work hard to develop their resistance to medicine, you have to work hard to develop more resistance to them. Start a program of personal vitality with the five key daily health habits I call The NEWSS: Nutrition (begin by cutting out the garbage “food”), Exercise (get at least three good workouts a week), Water (get two liters every day), Sleep (get eight hours every night), and Supplements (take at least one good daily multi-nutrient to beef up your body’s natural defenses).

According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women. And with 87% of all lung cancer cases involving tobacco, it is one form of cancer that is preventable, by and large.

Focus on the cluster of questions around stem cell research and cloning for a moment. One group of “dedicated and committed researchers” considers the human embryo a ball of cells and nothing more. Because it is undeveloped and would not survive out of the womb, any research is permissible, including the new proposals. The medical benefits, remote as they may be, wholly justify the action. At the opposite pole, many of us Christians (I only wish I could say the majority) believe that from conception onwards the embryo has the full status of humanity. On principle, this allows no research or use not for the benefit of that particular embryo, including both present and new potential uses.

Unexpected and unplanned for long-term care needs can change a comfortable retirement. Where will the funds come from to pay for the long-term care and still keep the lifestyle for the other spouse. What if a spouse becomes injured and cannot work? How long can a family continue to pay for care and still maintain a reasonable lifestyle.

I do not think this problem will go away until we as a nation stand up and say we have had enough. No more hitting, no more abusing. If you are abused and keep quiet, then you are enabling the abuser to continue mistreating you. Family disturbances are one of the most frequent calls for law enforcement officers. Often when they get to the home they are told that this is family business – we take care of our own. Taking care of someone is not the same as abusing them. We have to break the cycle of violence with our children. We must treat them with respect and kindness, even when they are disciplined. We must teach them to respect everyone and that violence will not be tolerated.

OUse your allies. Confide in a trustworthy friend. Tell your friend some of the signs of oncoming illness and ask him or her to let you know if they see them. That way, you have not only yourself watching for symptoms, but also an objective friend. Then you can take action to prevent the illness getting worse.

Oral Cancer (mouth cancer) is included in a specific group of cancers called oral and head and neck cancer (OHNC). It’s estimated that between 70 – 80 percent of all cases of OHNC are due to tobacco use and heavy alcohol consumption.

First, define your goals. Don’t just think, “I’ve got to lose some weight.” Pick a target, even if it’s a moving target. Some dieters like to think in increments, for instance, losing 20 poinds, then then reestablishing a new goal until they arrive at a weight level they feel most comfortable with. Other dieters-to-be are more daring. Choosing a weight loss goal of 100 pounds might seem impossible for some, but for other dieters, it’s their best and most direct strategy. Set a goal that you feel most comfortable with and stick with it.
