Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

**Pamphlet: Third-Hand Smoke: What It Is and How It Hurts Your Family

Tobacco smoke is full of toxins.  We all know this.  However those toxins can effect those who don't smoke, or who aren't even around someone who smokes.  This is because those toxins can into stuff around us,  Th couch, the curtains, the pillow, stuffed animals--all of these things can be permeated with toxins.  This toxins may be released when this stuff is moved or disturbed.  All can breathe in third-hand smoke, but those who are most vulnerable to third-hand smoke are babies and pets; however the wife cleaning or the made can also be susceptible.  Can you imagine the maids at a hotel.
The best way to protect your family is to quite smoking.  Barring that, never smoke in the house or car, or where children play.  Wash your hands after you smoke.  Where a jacket, and then leave the jacket outside so the smoke doesn't get to your kids.  Lastly it may be necessary to avoid the homes of those who smoke, especially with your young children.
