Is Swine Flu a Cause to Party?

What exactly is a swine flu party, and why would a case of h1n1 make anyone want to sing and dance?

Simply put, a swine flu party happens when people deliberately expose themselves to close contact with a person who has swine flu symptoms. In "theory", the partiers get infected with a mild case of the disease, resulting in future immunity. In other words, a swine flu party is supposed to be a sort of natural vaccination.

In theory, it sounds like a pretty clever idea. But there are plenty of reasons why swine flu parties are disasters waiting to happen.

Diet Ice Cream: Myth, Dream, or Fact?

Even if you're on a diet, ice cream doesn't have to fall from your meal plan! Check out these low cal favorites

I love ice cream, but the thought of diet ice cream makes me cringe. All too often, we're talking about grainy, sticky clumps of too sweet goo with a vaguely dairy feel to them. Fortunately, though, diet ice cream doesn't have to be awful. The key lies in compromise. If you try to go with nonfat, no sugar ice cream, it will probably taste like, well, it doesn't have any fat or sugar.

Instead, you want to opt for lowered fat and sugar. And by the way, don't think that going for something like rice milk or soy products makes the calorie count automatically improve -- some tofu based products boast more fat than Hagen Daaz!

But there are companies out there making fantastic diet ice cream, so before you get too despondent, give these brands a try.

Things Everyone Needs to Know About Diet and Cancer

Can Diet Really Prevent Cancer?

Cancer is a devastating disease and I know this personally. My father died from it just under a year ago. I will be the first one to admit that I feel his diet played a huge role in what happened to him. Not only did he have poor eating habits prior to being diagnosed, he refused to change his ways after the diagnosis was made. I wholeheartedly believe that if he had made changes for the better or had taken a different approach to health and nutrition, he'd be with us today. If you think diet can't prevent or help fight cancer, there are things you really need to know.

Is There a Hospital Cash Card in Your Wallet?

What is a Hospital Cash Card?

The other day I received a letter from my credit union telling me that they would pay for two months of the premium if I signed up for a hospital cash card. The advertisement was very compelling. After all, if I could get coverage for my family that would pay up to $400 for each day we were in the hospital if (God forbid) anything went wrong and it would cost me less than $20 a month, why not? Of course, I had to dig further. What exactly is a hospital cash card? Would it really pay? This is what I found out...
