Antibiotics Linked to Type 2 Diabetes Risk

Researchers don't know if the drugs signal developing disease, or contribute to it

Health Tip of the Day

Brown-Bag Safety

Food-borne illness isn't a threat only at picnics. It can even occur with your brown-bag lunch. To avoid problems, make sure you wash your hands before and after eating lunch at your desk, according to the American Dietetic Association. Other tips: Refrigerate your lunch when you arrive at the office. Thaw frozen foods in the refrigerator or microwave, not on the countertop. If you bring leftovers for lunch, reheat them to a temperature of 165 degrees.

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.
