Study: Soft Drinks May Raise Stroke Risk

Are you an avid soda drinker? If you’re like a lot of other Americans, you love a fizzy, refreshing soft drink. New studies show, however, that drinking it could raise your stroke risk, especially for women.

Researchers from Osaka University conducted a study that observed the dietary habits of 40,000 men and women between the ages of 40 to 59 for 18 years. According to this MSN article, about 2,000 of the participants suffered a stroke.

After analyzing the soft drink consumption of the participants, researchers found that women were 83 percent more likely to suffer a stroke if they drank just one soft drink per day, when compared to women who did not drink soda.

Stroke is a very serious and debilitating condition that affects thousands of Americans every year. It’s also highly preventable. Learn how a preventive health screening from Life Line Screening can keep you from experiencing a life-altering stroke today.

Early Detection and Type 2 Diabetes

What’s the point of early warning signs if you ignore them? Early symptoms of type 2 diabetes such as excessive thirst, blurry vision and dry mouth happen for a reason, which is to alert you to a bigger and more serious problem: diabetes.

The American Diabetes Association says that 79 million Americans currently have pre-diabetes. This condition, if not treated, can lead to full-blown type 2 diabetes. With early detection through health screenings and the implementation of major lifestyle changes, a person with pre-diabetes can reverse the disease. One way to reverse the disease is by maintaining a healthy body weight through regular physical exercise.

Take advantage of early detection of diabetes with a preventive health screening from Life Line Screening today.

Get Ready for Movember

In November, men everywhere come together for “Movember” by growing mustaches to raise money for prostate cancer research. The men who register to officially be a part of Movember are called “Mo Bros”, and as they commit to growing a mustache for the entire month of November, they are considered “walking and talking billboards for the cause.”

Women can get involved, too. “Mo Sistas”, as they’re called, can contribute by supporting and motivating the men who are growing mustaches. They can also participate in Movember events that raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer.

Want to learn how you can get involved in Movember? Check out the official U.S. Movember site to discover how.
