    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    America Recycles Day - Do you?

    Today is America Recycles Day .

    Do you recycle? Do you think it really helps out?

    cjh1203 responded:
    I do recycle everything I possibly can, and I absolutely think it helps. Imagine everything that people have recycled in the past twenty years just being dumped in a landfill instead; it would be a mind-boggling amount of extra trash, most of which would still be there decades or even centuries from now.
    Sistersandy responded:
    I do recycle paper and plastic and glass and I'm pretty fanatical about it but I don't compost. I'm not sure how much it helps but I'm sure it does and it makes me like I'm doing a good thing. In Vancouver, Ca, where my daughter lives, they compost all their food wastes, vegetables in one container and and all other food wastes in another container that are picked up by the town. It's an admirable idea but the problem is the constant fruit flies. No matter how air tight the container, those annoying little things are in it, on top of it or around it. I do it while I'm there but not when I get home. Sister Sandy
