A 'historic, lifesaving step': FDA moves to ban menthol ci******es and flavored ci**rs

Have you heard? "With these actions, the FDA will help significantly reduce youth initiation, increase the chances of smoking cessation among current smokers, and address health disparities experienced by communities of color, low-income populations, and LGBTQ+ individuals, all of whom are far more likely to use these to***co products," acting FDA Commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock said in a statement.

The regulatory agency stopped short, though, of including menthol-flavored e-ci******es.

Maybe you haven’t been active for a while? National Walking Day is a great day to get back to it. Just take it one step at a time. Try this:

Take the dog out for a walk.
Park farther away.
Take the stairs, even if just for a floor or two.
Call up a friend and walk around the block while you catch up.

Did you know that buying a whole chicken and cutting it into parts costs less than buying chicken pieces? A 4-pound chicken has about 1 pound of breast meat, great for serving 4 people. You can use the rest of the chicken for other recipes during the week.

WEARING MY RED
Dear American Heart Association - Georgia: Here's what I said to the paid telemarketer you just wasted your donors' money on... Not only will I not be sending out letters for you, but I will no longer donate to your organization AT ALL because I object so strongly to unwanted telephone solicitation. I will actively campaign for my friends and family to ignore your solicitations and to donate to other worthy causes. Remove me from whatever lists I'm on and do not contact me again.
Y'all spend entirely too much money placing 2 to 3 calls a day to people's phones. Please stop!
We need your opinions today! The Henne Group and RTI International are working on a project funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are looking for people living with asthma, COPD, or heart disease to participate in a small group discussion. This group will last for about 60 minutes. Those who participate will be paid $40 for their time. Participants will meet other interesting people living with their condition and even more, will have an opportunity to help their community. The purpose of this study is to gather feedback on communication materials about air quality and health, an issue that affects us all. We will be conducting the first groups in Atlanta during the last week of April. This is for research only. We are not selling anything. Participation is anonymous and confidential. Please click here to access our online questionnaire: http://bit.ly/airqualitystudy Or call us now on 877-212-5168.
I was asked by a relative to give to the American Heart Association in lieu of flowers. I felt good about giving to this worthy cause but NOW I receive at least 2 phone calls daily asking for a donation. This to me has become harassment and I definitely will no longer donate!
