Pumpkin Breakfast Rounds

Pumpkin is certainly a festive decoration of the holiday season but more importantly, its health benefits are immeasurable. One significant benefit that pumpkin provides is the increased amount of vitamin A. One cup of cooked pumpkin provides 254% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin A.



Arthritis Among Veterans

On November 11th the U.S. honors all who have served in the U.S. Military.  There are many ways that veterans lives are impacted both during their service and after they've served. One of the most critical impacts, especially long-term, is on health. Current statistics indicate that among all adults in the U.S. 1 in 4 are living with arthritis, compared to 1 in 3 veterans. Additional studies indicate arthritis is more common in older veterans and arthritis is often developed due to overuse and traumatic injuries during their service. To find out more about veteran health care and benefits, there is information on the Veterans Affairs website with links to additional resources.
