Still a bit under the weather so my initial idea of getting up and going for a run fell to the wayside.
I did want to share some interesting news I have come across the past few days:
U of AZ is my Alma mater and they also have a great cancer center. I am glad to see that they got this grant.
Two Arizona researchers have been awarded a $1.5 million grant from the National Cancer Institute to study the relationship of vitamin D to colorectal cancer. Peter Jurutka, PhD, of the University of Arizona College of Medicine Phoenix, in partnership with Arizona State University, and Elizabeth Jacobs, PhD, Arizona Cancer Center scientist and assistant professor at the University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, will be spending the next five years on the study.
Get out there and be active with your family. How can you argue with the benefits below?
A growing body of research says that students who are more active do better in school academically.
The idea is that exercise helps kids learn — and it’s not just Olwell who believes this. A growing body of research links physical activity and academic performance, according to a report released last month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We all need to see motivational quotes now and then to keep us fueled and motoring on…
Health is Happiness
Have you ever thought about the connection between happiness and good health? Most of us would probably agree that there is a connection, but many of us who feel unhappy don’t want to take the time to build a foundation of good health. Good health can be the launching pad for great things. Think about when you are feeling under the weather. It is hard to stay on track and consistent with your goals when your body isn’t up to the challenge. It is extremely important to make sure your body stays in great shape if you want to enjoy all that life has to offer.
