Infofest! Handy Health Information

Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:
It’s an infofest!
I Dream of Disaster
Do you have “worry dreams”? Don’t worry about worrying, because it’s normal! 
What Are Americans Like?
Here’s an interesting university guide to understanding Americans . It’s always fun to take a look at ourselves from another’s perspective.
The part the university guide leaves out:
Give a Care
A comprehensive list of resources for caregivers . Everything from low-cost medical care to helpful organizations you can join.
Bush, Congress Face Off
Woot! Now there’s a big surprise, right? Uh huh. No, it’s not Iraq – it’s the contentious debate over Medicare . Dubya and the skittles are all in a big huff over a demand for a timetable of action. Hmm…arguments about a timetable. Seems to be a theme going on.
Ladies Who Lush?
Alcohol harms women far more than men  – even when doctors compare results between men and women of the same size and health status. For women, moderation really means “very little”. But don’t worry – you can get your antioxidants from grapes, too! To reduce stress after a long day, experts recommend that women enjoy half a glass of wine. That and a hot bath or a nice neck rub from a family member, spouse or roommate is very soothing (moms: a neck rub makes a great bonding activity with the kids, too). A full glass of wine or a couple of cocktails now and then is not a big deal, but take care not to drink too much on a daily basis. (That really goes for everyone, of course.)
Question (okay, questions) of the day:
How should we define moderation when it comes to drinking? Do you think the benefits of alcohol outweigh the potential harm? Do you think women really need to stick to just half a glass?
From the blogosphere:
Sara and Aaron here with a few bloggy updates, Apples. One of our favorite blogs, the very saucy Healthbolt , has a brand new look. It incorporates a lot of juicy crimson red, which is never a bad thing! (Wade Meredith, blogger of all things boltish, recently moved to b5media, fellow network home of some of the Bees’ top blog picks: A Hearty Life , Veggie Chic , and Eating Fabulous . This is a top-notch network of excellent bloggers, so don’t miss out on their great tips and interesting perspectives! Go on, scoot!)
Coming up: Be sure to stop in tomorrow for the latest in supplement news from Elliott (what’s real, what’s bogus) and Mark’s analysis of why men die sooner than women. You’ll want to join in that conversation!
Until then, Bees out. It’s been real.
