The Truth About Tanning

our natural skin color is great the way it is! Every time you tan, you increase your risk of melanoma.
Myth: I have to get a tan to look good.
Truth: You should know your skin will pay a price! Fine lines and wrinkles, cataracts, sagging skin, and brown spots.
Myth: Only old people get cancer.
Truth: Young women are getting skin cancer more often. The risk is real! Melanoma—the deadliest kind—is the third most common cancer in people from 15 to 39. You can get melanoma in your eyes.
Myth: Having a good base tan will protect my skin from the sun.
Truth: A tan is a sign of damaged skin.
Myth: Tanning beds are a good way to get vitamin D.
Truth: Tanning beds are risky, and most people get enough vitamin D from food and sunlight during daily activities.
You can get more than a tan from a tanning bed! If the tanning bed isn’t clean, you could pick up a serious skin infection with symptoms like genital warts, skin rashes, skin warts, and flaky discolored patches on your skin.

New growing home care agency believes private sector home care staff deserve higher pay

Canada’s aging population is growing rapidly.  Out of a total Canadian population of 33.5 million, nearly 5 million are seniors.

Canada is currently experiencing the highest growth rate for this age group since the late 1950s and early 1960s.  The children of this generation, dubbed “The sandwich generation,” are increasingly anxious about how to simultaneously care for their children while caring for their aging parents – many of whom want to age at home for as long as possible.

Mavencare, a new home care service for seniors, helps alleviate some of this anxiety by providing quality home care at a competitive rate that allows for higher salaries for PSWs. “We want to provide the best care possible.  To do this, we offer higher salaries to deserving health care workers and are able to retain the best of the best,” says James Cohen, Co-Founder of Mavencare. “We recognize that PSWs are undervalued and underpaid.  It is our belief that by combining technology with adequate salaries, we can modernize the home care service industry.”

Created by a team of elder care and technology experts, Mavencare provides technological monitoring services throughout the home care appointment.  Through the Mavencare app, selected family members receive regular updates, directly to their mobile phone.  These activity updates confirm that key tasks such as medication reminders and personal care services are completed. 

Available now in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Calgary, Mavencare plans to expand service across North America this year.

Did you know that kale is one of the very few vegetables that contain a decent amount of Omega 3 ALA (alpha-linolenic acid)?
ALA is linked to numerous health benefits like lowering the risk of depression and diabetes. High blood sugar in diabetics can cause rapid damage to brain cells. Deficiency in Omega 3 is also bad news for people suffering from depression.
Kale contains a high amount of protein for a leafy green. On top of that it also has folate and vitamin B6; these are all necessary nutrients to keep brain cells in tip-top condition.
Other health benefits of KALE:
- High amount of absorbable calcium for bone health.
- High antioxidants that reduce oxidation of cholesterol.
- The chlorophyll molecules are closest to the molecules of human's hemoglobin, making it a great food for people who are anemic.
- Contains high concentration of carotenoids that are necessary for eye health.
- And many more!
What is YOUR favorite kale juice recipe?
