May Is Skin Cancer Awareness Month! [AUDIO]

Are you a sun goddess or dude who likes to catch a  couple of rays the moment the temperature in West Michigan rises above 40-degrees?

I do too and get a little crazy by either holding my arm out the window while I'm driving down the road, open my sun roof  or simply stand outside with my face directed toward the sun ... it feels sooo good after a long winter inside, doesn't it?!

Sorry to rain on your ray time because the month of May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month for the obvious reasons!

What they found was that the people with the lowest amount of sodium intake "had no greater protection against high blood pressure after eight years than those who consumed the highest levels," according to the Boston Globe.

Wearing Leggings Can Make You Fat

I have expressed before that I don't think that leggings should ever be worn as pants.

Leggings are one of those fashions from the 80's that I am convinced should have stayed there. But hey, that's just my opinion, and just because I don't like the way they look doesn't mean that the person wearing them doesn't.
