A Multivitamin’s Effect on Heart Disease in Men
Think that multivitamin you’re taking every day is lowering your risk of heart problems down the road? Sadly, it might not be.

What Your Feet Can Tell You About Your Health
Did you know that checking your feet for certain characteristics can tell you about the state of your health?
“You can detect everything from diabetes to nutritional deficiencies just by examining the feet,” Jane Andersen, DPM and President of the American Association of Women Podiatrists said in a Yahoo! Health article.
How can this be? Feet contain a quarter of the body’s bones as well as 33 joints, 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments and numerous nerves and blood vessels that go all the way to the most important areas of the body: the heart, spine and brain.
Health screenings can also make you aware of the state of your health. Learn more about how a preventive health screening from Life Line Screening can benefit you today.
