High blood pressure, or hypertension, damages blood vessels and can lead to health problems like heart disease and stroke. Because there often are no symptoms, it is important to get your blood pressure checked regularly. Tests can be done at doctor’s offices, pharmacies, groceries, or even at home. Generally, a blood pressure reading over 140/90 is high.

If you smoke cigarettes, quitting is a healthy choice for you and your family. Smoking is harmful to your body, and can lead to many health issues, including heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer. The sooner you stop smoking, the sooner your body will start to heal from the damage that cigarettes caused. One year after quitting smoking, your risk for a heart attack drops sharply, and 10 years after quitting, your risk for lung cancer drops by half.

Don't Give Bottles at Bedtime. Young children can get painful cavities if they drink juice or milk from a baby bottle for long periods of time. Here are ways to stop tooth decay in children: Don’t put children to bed with a bottle. If they use a bottle as their pacifier, fill it with water only. Only give your baby a bottle during meals. Babies who drink bottles while lying down are more likely to get ear infections.

Summer offers many ways to have fun. Remember to stay safe and make healthy choices. 1) Watch children around water: Kids of all ages should be supervised at pools or other bodies of water. If your child doesn’t know how to swim, he or she should wear an approved life jacket. 2) Stock up on healthy foods: Have fruits and veggies on hand for snacking. Fresh berries and watermelon are tasty treats, and are healthier than a dessert from the ice cream truck. Make sure to drink plenty of water to avoid getting dehydrated.
