Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:

Okay, okay, we admit it. We think health is fun and worth arguing, talking and laughing about endlessly.

Everyone’s Favorite Superbug

The flu (actually an umbrella nickname of sorts for several variant influenza viruses) is developing resistance to drugs [7]. Though no natural method can completely prevent your risk of flu, there are plenty of preventive measures that do help:

- fresh garlic daily

- plenty of vitamin C

- practicing good hygiene (wash those hands!)

- echinacea and zinc in flu season

- a daily tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in flu season

What are your suggestions, Apples? How do you avoid the flu? Talk it up!

Mammograms: A Good Idea?

The debate is rekindled [9]: are mammograms more harmful than helpful? Be sure to catch the latest research out today.

News flash: Life Is Really, Really Hard!

Is your doctor telling you you’re depressed? Maybe life is just hard and it’s okay to feel down about it! Check out this provocative news piece [10] to see what we’re talking about.

Note: while we are not psychologists around here (and if you are, we’d love your perspective about why we may be buzzing up the wrong orchid), we think one could make a compelling argument that the personal fix-it movement is itself stressful for many people. Where do you draw the line between dealing with past issues and being convinced you need “fixing”? How do we draw the line between genuine depression or unresolved issues and simply feeling a normal response to life’s hardships? What do you all think? Are we depressed, or is life just tough?

Between a rock and a hard place…
