The weakened heart muscles may not be able to supply enough blood to the kidneys, which then begin to lose their normal ability to excrete salt (sodium) and water. This diminished kidney function can cause the body to retain more fluid.  (May 24, 2014 | post #87)

daily health tips for everyone!

Exercise regularly: Take regular walks -- after dinner with the family, a walk instead of a drive or take the dog for a stroll. Enjoy your favorite TV shows, but get up and take an exercise break during commercials. When reading, get some exercise after every six pages. Walk quickly or run while doing errands. Walk the escalators instead of just riding on them. Do laps through the aisles of the grocery store, or walk quickly on your trip to the mall. Start an active new hobby, such as biking or hiking. If you're on the phone, walk around while you chat. Dance to your favorite music, or engage in active play with your kids for at least 30 minutes each day.  (May 22, 2014 | post #116)

sugary drinks and obesity

Our industry is doing its part to impact children’s health and wellness. For example, the beverage industry joined with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation to develop new School Beverage Guidelines that remove full-calorie soft drinks from all schools and provide students with lower-calorie, smaller-portion beverage options. It's all part of a broader effort to teach children about the importance of a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Additionally, the beverage industry makes a wide variety of beverages that can help contribute to good health, such as bottled waters, 100 percent juice, sports drinks, ready-to-drink teas and no- and low-calorie soft drinks.  (May 21, 2014 | post #67)

facts about heart attacks

Some people with congenital heart defects have a specific genetic condition that can include other health problems. They may or may not know that they have such a condition. The chance for their child to also have this condition can be as high as 50 percent. These conditions can vary widely in their severity, so children may have less serious or more serious health problems than their parents.  (May 19, 2014 | post #84)

Energy drinks, which typically contain large amounts of sugar and caffeine, are equally if not more dangerous to children. Although the target market for energy drinks is young adults aged 18-35, teenagers are consuming significant quantities of these beverages.  (May 19, 2014 | post #66)
