I was recently contacted by two different individuals regarding some important health related information.  They both asked if I was willing to share more on the blog, as I tend to focus a lot on healthy living.  After reading their emails, I couldn’t say no.  This is too important not to share.

The first email was from the Managing Editor at the American Recall Center, a brand new site devoted to providing health and wellness news in simple, straightforward terms.  Here’s what he had to say –

Did you know that May is Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention month? Because this very important month is often overlooked, we want to help the cause by spreading awareness! We’ve created a graphic that outlines some facts & risk factors about the disease. For example, one out of every two women and one in four men over 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture in their lifetime. Since staying active is one of the top ways to prevent this disease, I thought it would be a good fit for your blog and your readers.

And he also sent me this infographic…

And the second email came from the Community Outreach Director for the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance.  Here’s what she had to say –

In honor of upcoming National Women’s Health Week (May 11-17), I am reaching out to bloggers to ask for help in spreading the word about mesothelioma, a deadly cancer that once was only considered a ‘man’s disease’. Due to second-hand exposure, women have swiftly become the new patient profile. Being that mesothelioma is completely preventable cancer (caused only by asbestos exposure), knowing more about the disease and its risk factors truly does make a difference towards protecting yourself.

And here is the fact sheet she shared with me…

I am a huge believer that education and preventative measures are two of the best keys we have to staying healthy.  And while I totally understand that not everything that happens to us is in our control, there are quite a few things that are.  Why not be in control of those things as much as possible?

Thanks for reading!  Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Thank you for sharing, P! I feel like education and raising awareness is one of the most effective forms of prevention. I found both these pieces really insightful, especially as osteoporosis is usually associated as being more of a female diagnosis!

  2. “Knowledge is power” and knowledge carries the power to instill change! My mom found out she had osteoporosis when she fell about 3 years ago and ended up shattering her shoulder and breaking her hip – a small fall resulted in such bad injuries – so glad you drew attention to staying active as a preventative measure – and not shying away from calcium rich foods – Thanks for sharing this Parita!
