Worker Bees’ Daily Bites

What do you get when you mix the daily heads-up on the best health news, a funny picture, and a bonus fitness post from Mark? Oh yeah, this post.

Rejoice!

For fried dough is near.

Fabulosity

We promise never to use that word again. But you’ll see why we did when you click this informative little health snippet. There’s food involved. Possibly a fruit. Possibly an apple. Scoot!

Sisson: “No More Excuses!”

Mark posted some helpful, practical fitness tips for frazzled folks over at the delightful Kendra’s A Hearty Life heart-healthy blog. Think you’re too busy to work out? Are you drowning in your kids’ play dates and orthodontist appointments? Working long hours during the day and spending romantic nights with…bills and the laundry? Mark tells you how to exercise no matter what the obstacle.

Women, Speak Up! (Guys, Too)

Have you heard about the “No Period Pill“? Doctors are debating the merits of a recently approved birth-control pill which will banish periods completely. The FDA approved it; what do you think?

A couple of things to consider when you comment in ye ole Forum:

– Side effects of hormone therapy (which is really what birth control is)

– The biological need for menses (do women need this monthly visitor for optimal health?)

– The consumer need for another drug (any birth control, if taken every day, will have this effect – is this a great new drug, or just a new marketing scheme from Big Pharma?)

– Potential benefits (for women suffering from various health complications)
