Golf is Unforgettable?
Golf Capability Remains After Alzheimers

US MED Gives BackGolf holds such power over a player's mind that it may never be forgotten, even for those who have Alzheimer's disease and can no longer care for themselves.

At the Silverado Senior Living facility in Belmont, Calif., an 87-year-old man wanted nothing but to stay in his room and not communicate at all. Operators of the home decided to hold a "golf outing" and insisted that he go.

Hours later, this man was measuring the break on a 12-foot putt and knocking his ball into the hole. At the driving range, he practiced chipping with a six iron, using an easy, free swing duffers half his age would envy.

World Population Day
Take your Medicine...Carefully

US MED Gives BackObserved worldwide every July 11, World Population Day seeks to raise awareness of global population issues and to reaffirm the basic human right to plan for a family. Established by the Governing Council of the United Nations in 1989, it was inspired by a report that the world population would reach 5 billion on this date.

Participating countries observe the day in different ways, many offering poster or essay-writing contests, sports events, concerts or whatever other activities will focus attention on the subject.

Issues include maternal health, family planning, and gender equality.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates the world's population will reach 7 billion in 2011 or by July 11, 2012..

Stress Relief

Improve Your Health by Reducing Your Stress

US MED Gives BackYou already know a few ways to improve your health, such as making it a point to east fruit every day and to eat high-fiber foods like breakfast cereal. Here are a few other stress fighters and health improvers:

1) Approach your life and work with a more positive outlook. Find a positive side in every aspect of your life. Research involving women age 50 and older found those with an optimistic view were much less likely to die of any cause during the years of the study.

2) Try yoga and tai chi. The gentle mind-body practices combine aerobic, strength training, core stability, flexibility and balance. They reduce blood pressure and improve sleep.

July is National Grilling Month
Recent Dietary Guidelines Slash Salt Intake

US MED Gives BackCooking outside in the fresh air is one of the joys of summer. Grilling can enhance food flavors, and the company of family and friends can make any dinner a party. Cooking outside in the fresh air is one of the joys of summer. Grilling can enhance food flavors, and the company of family and friends can make any dinner a party.

There's more to it than slapping a steak on the grill and turning up the heat. To prevent foodborne illnesses, you have to do it right.

* Thaw frozen meats and poultry thoroughly. Slow thawing in the refrigerator is best. Or thaw sealed packages in cold water. Microwave thawing is OK if you grill the item immediately.
