Deadly virus relatively slow to transmit, and travel factors make spread from West Africa unlikely

Health Tip of the Day

Home Sweet Home?

Home may be where the heart is, but danger also lurks there. A study at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found accidents in the home resulted in 20 million visits to emergency rooms every year. These accidents caused 7 million disabling injuries and 20,000 deaths annually. Falls send most people to the hospital, followed by poisoning of both children and adults (because of prescription drug interactions). Other reasons include fire, smoke inhalation, suffocation and drowning.

Healthy Living

Nutrition
Could your diet use a nutritional tune-up? A healthful diet has many benefits and it doesn’t have to be bland and boring. Add color to your plate with fresh fruit and vegetables, choose whole grains and low-fat dairy, and keep an eye on your portion size. Aim for balance, variety, flexibility and moderation.
