Health Tidbits~ Did You Know?

There is a 75 % increase in melanoma risk among people who expose themselves to a tanning bed before the age of 35 .

Interrupted Sleep

If you have interrupted sleep or find yourself staring at the ceiling in the middle of the night, you should know this may harm your heart. Researchers at the University of California in San Diego monitored 135 healthy men overnight. They collected and analyzed their blood and found that interrupted sleep can increase clot promoting proteins.
