Health Tip of the Day

Sunburn No-Nos

What not to put on sunburn: Butter or petroleum jell -- greasy salves can hold heat in the wound and slow healing. Your own concoction -- if you're not sure what to do, call your doctor. Abrasive soaps or hot water. Perfumes or colognes.

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.

Health Centers
