Health Tip of the Day

Estrogen in Oral Contraceptives

Your birth control pill is too high in estrogen if it causes breast tenderness or bloating, say researchers at the University of Colorado. If you have either of these symptoms, ask your doctor if you should switch to an oral contraceptive with a lower dose of estrogen.

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.
