Health, something we don’t worry enough about or we worry too much about, either way it effects us every day and how we deal with it effects us, so this issue is all health related both good and bad.

We need to know the data that surrounds us that is health related so, check out the following site.
The mission of the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) is to provide statistical information that will guide actions and policies to improve the health of the American people. As the Nation’s principal health statistics agency, NCHS leads the way with accurate, relevant, and timely data.

Eventually we get older and our parents get older and another need might arise.
The Consumer Reports Nursing Home Quality Monitor identifies nursing homes that are likely to provide better-quality care and those likely to provide poorer-quality care.
Consumer Report’s investigation found that the state agencies responsible for overseeing nursing home care have often failed to correct problems. But consumers can increase their odds of choosing a good nursing home if they narrow their search to certain types.
