Health Tip of the Day

Going Vegetarian

The term "vegetarian" can mean different things, depending upon the types of animal-based foods -- if any -- that are eaten. In the vegan diet, all animal products are avoided; the pollo-vegetarian diet includes chicken; and the semi-vegetarian diet includes meat occasionally. All vegetarian diets emphasize plant-based foods, which are associated with lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, decreased weight and less risk of heart disease and some cancers.

Healthy Living

Cholesterol
There's a lot of news about cholesterol these days, and with good reason. High cholesterol contributes to heart disease, which kills more Americans than all cancers combined. A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.
