February 2014: Tips, eNews and More!
Do you have Olympic fever?
The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games are finally here. We are all excited to cheer for our Canadian athletes as they go for gold. Go Canada Go!
Are you feeling the chill of the season? We say embrace it! Take advantage of Family Day on the 17th and get outside! Ski, skate, or just put on some snow pants and play in the snow! The cold isn't going away anytime soon (despite what some groundhogs may say), so why not enjoy it? Be sure to bundle up and layer yourself well, you don't want to catch a cold.
If you do feel yourself getting sick, be sure to drink plenty of warm fluids and orange juice to load up on vitamin C to help your body stay strong. Some other tips to stay healthy this season include:
Until next month, stay warm and keep smiling,
- Wash your hands often
- Avoid touching your face
- Throw tissues away after use
- Get plenty of sleep and good rest

The Signs of Oral Cancer
While hearing the term 'cancer' can be scary, early detection of pre-cancerous tissue can minimize or eliminate the potentially disfiguring effects of oral cancer and possibly save your life. Many oral cancers have a high success rate of being treated, especially when found early.
The term 'Oral Cancer' includes cancerous growths in the cheeks, lips, mouth, throat, sinus, tongue, or anywhere in the oral cavity. As with most cancers, age is the primary risk factor for oral cancer, as most people diagnosed with a form of oral cancer are over 50.
