A Tuesday quickie

Photo by Petr Kratochvil
 Sometimes we all just need a quickie. Too much info bears down on us and we just can't process it all.

So today, I thought you might enjoy a quickie. And it's all about your health, ladies (sorry guys). Just 3 simple tips:
  1. Wine is good for you. Really. A glass a day (red being better than white) just might help you fight heart disease. How? By increasing your blood's level of omega-3 fatty acids. That's according to a report by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. By reducing inflamation, your arteries will simply be healthier. Cheers!
  2. Smoking is not good for you. Yeah, you needed me to remind you of that, right? If you are a smoker, just know that, on average, those cigarettes have robbed you of over 14 years of the life you've been blessed with. Bottom line ... that sucks.
  3. This one you'll love, and you probably know. But it is well worth repeating! Sally Scroggs, R.D. (M.D. Anderson Cancer Prevention Center) says dark chocolate, oh yeah! has properties that just may hold off cell changes that lead to tumors, thus reducing your risk of cancer.
Bottom line -- stomp out the cigarette and grab some dark chocolate to accompany that small glass of wine. Your body will thank you for it.

Keeping it healthy,
