Kathy Bradley - Feeling of Christmas should be embraced

I don't really mind 80-degree weather in December. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that I prefer it. I can sit on the deck and read the Sunday paper.

For the Public Health by Stuart Tedders Ph.D.

Although life expectancy has risen considerably in this country, we still face significant health challenges in the 21st century.

Data indicate that more than 90 million Americans live with a chronic illness and 25 million people experience either disability or physical activity limitations due to these conditions. In addition to the personal burden, the medical care costs of people with chronic diseases are staggering and account for approximately 75 percent of the nation's health care budget.
