    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,

    Hi folks,

    Here's a pretty amazing study, just off the presses.

    http://www.diseaseproof.com/archives/healthy-food-green-and-orange-vegetable-consumption-an-indicator-of-longevity.html

    People who eat more vegetables live longer. I am certain that I get fewer (no) colds, instead of sharing the colds of people around me.

    Actually, I do get colds. I just have to watch for symptoms carefully. My nose might run for 2 hours. I might get a slight chapped lip. I might get a sore spot in a nostril. But never the feverish achy tired feeling.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy
