I was really sad to hear about the recent passing of country music legend Charlie Daniels. He had a career that spanned decades, won several awards and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. You might know him most for his 1979 hit “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” Daniels died of a hemorrhagic stroke at 83-years-old.
Even though there is evidence which shows that men who have children later in life may live longer and have children that may live longer, the young age of 35 is still considered advanced paternal age. And as you can probably imagine, Formula One mogul Bernie Ecclestone has received a lot of flak for having a child when he is nearly 90.
As I take one of my cloth face masks out of my dryer yet again, I wonder if I’m wearing the most protective cloth that I can. You might be wondering the same, especially if you made your own mask from an old t-shirt or bandana. And what about masks made from synthetic materials?

It’s also extremely important to be aware of specific nutrients that may help prevent high blood pressure or help manage it.
In most states where marijuana is legal, weed dispensaries are considered essential businesses. So, it may seem that smoking weed is harmless and that now is the perfect time to do it, however, a recent study suggests otherwise.
On one hand, it has become much more inclusive and holistic to lump together physical health, mental health, social health and even financial health. On the other hand, we are still prone to letting our eyes be the judge as to whether someone “looks healthy.”
Researchers of a recent study found an association between long-term training and metabolic disease prevention.

Also known as Barlow’s syndrome and floppy valve syndrome, MVP, as the name suggests, involves a prolapse (a bulging or falling out) of the mitral valve. If you look at diagram of heart in this blog, you can see that the heart contains four valves. The purpose of the mitral valve is to help move blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle. Essentially, heart valves prevent the backward flow of blood.
