March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month!

Learn what you need to know about Colorectal Cancer.

Calcium and vitamin D supplements after menopause can improve women’s cholesterol profiles. And much of that effect is tied to raising vitamin D levels, finds a new study from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) just published online in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

Chocolate lovers take heart!  Dark chocolate is good for you and scientists now know why. Dark chocolate helps restore flexibility to arteries while also preventing white blood cells from sticking to the walls of blood vessels. Both arterial stiffness and white blood cell adhesion are known factors that play a significant role in atherosclerosis. This discovery was published in the March 2014 issue of The FASEB Journal.

If a new Israeli product from IonMed gets market approval, surgeons will have a revolutionary tool in their hands for scar-free incision closure.

    1. Hi Jane,

      I am so happy you find my Menopause Mondays helpful! You made my day!
      Thanks for taking the time so comment….
      Have a HEALTHY day!

  1. Thanks for this important health check reminder. Great news about more benefits of chocolate especially for someone who is living in Switzerland!

  2. Caught early, colo-rectal cancer isn’t a death sentence. Such an easy assessment that so many fear. When I forced hubby to have his first colonoscopy at age 62 after we remarried, the doc came out and said I’d likely saved his life as he was brewing a case of CA…have the procedure. Easy.

    1. Wow, Carol! Thanks for sharing this story. It is true, that so many people put off having a colonoscopy as they don’t want to do the prep or are afraid of the procedure. You are so right….it is such an important test — the prep isn’t so bad and you don’t feel anything during the procedure. It is painless and save lives!

  3. My mom just had 2 strokes in the last three weeks, probably due to her uncontrolled high cholesterol. She also rarely gets any sun (a great source for Vitamin D). Thanks for the info.

  4. Love that you posted about March being colorectal cancer awareness month. My post this week is about March also being National Kidney Month. Great minds think alike, thanks for spreading the good word.

    1. Thank you for so much. Great minds think alike! It’s important to spread the word on how to stay healthy and happy.
