Kids fall down and get bumps, scrapes and bruises all the time. And it’s usually no big deal. But one mother in the United Kingdom recently had the scare of her life when her eight-year-old son developed sepsis after what seemed like a harmless fall at the zoo.
For most of us, cactus may not be a staple food in our diets. Some people may not know that cactus is even edible. But it is!
In random news, this Saturday in Duluth, MN people will be celebrating everything rhubarb. I don’t know much about rhubarb other than the fact that the stalks resemble red celery and people sometimes eat rhubarb pie. So naturally I became very curious about it.

The average life expectancy for an American is 78.6 years. And if we are proactive about our health, many of us may live long enough to reach our nineties and even make it to 100! Take, for example these celebrities.
If I asked you what color bananas are, you’d probably look at me like I’m crazy and say, “yellow.”
Cellulite is pretty common. Some physicians refer to it as edematous fibrosclerotic panniculopathy (EFP). Even celebrities and athletes, who we sometimes tend to think have “perfect bodies,” get it. For example, plus size model Ashley Graham posted a photo on Instagram of the cellulite on her thighs and buttocks area, with the caption, “I workout. I do my best to eat well. I love the skin I’m in. And I’m not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite...and you shouldn’t be either.”

Andrew Yang (D) is a national political candidate who recently made headlines when he stated his opposition to infant circumcision and his desire to incorporate this stance into public policy.

Usually when I have a really important court appearance or a very critical business meeting, you might hear me say that “I’m on pins and needles.” Some law school graduates may also describe the feeling they get while waiting for their bar exam results as being on “pins and needles.” However, for other people like myself, “pins and needles” may have an additional meaning. It may be a sensation in the calves and feet when I don’t get enough vitamin B12. It’s an uncomfortable feeling, to say the least. Another term sometimes used to refer to “pins and needles” is paresthesia.
