No Way Around It—It Takes Work

There was very significant health news a few weeks ago.  When news about health makes it to the headlines, it usually means we have to pay attention.  For over 100 years, the average life expectancy of people who live in the United States has increased, with the exception of 1993 and that aberration occurred because [...]

The Cost of Poor Health and Obesity

The two most common excuses people give for not exercising and taking care of their general health are lack of time, and finances.
