3GM Summer Food Challenge

3GM Summer Food Challenge

The heat is on…literally. It’s summertime here in the Peach State and time to break out the skimpy wardrobe. But what to do if you body is not cooperating with your style choices. We are all for loving your bod no matter what size you are, but we’re not going to lie. We like bikinis, summer dresses, and we wear short shorts.

BUT…more important than all of that is a healthy diet. In addition to getting rid of unwanted pounds we recognize that what goes in must come out and at our age it comes out as the dreaded PIMPLE!

Protect yourself against mosquitoes, ticks

ATLANTA -- The state's first 2011 case of West Nile Virus (WNV) has been confirmed in a horse in Southeast Georgia.

Now, the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH) recommends that all Georgians protect themselves from mosquitoes and remove any standing water from their property.

"While this is a non-human case, we recognize that the mosquito and tick season is starting earlier than in previous years," said Dr. Anil T. Mangla, program director of infectious disease & immunization and acting state epidemiologist for the DCH.

Smoking sections could become slimmer in DeKalb County

Smoking sections could become slimmer in DeKalb County

DECATUR, Ga. – Are you ready for a smoke-free DeKalb County? If so, you could get your wish. Last month, the DeKalb County Board of Health voted to amend the county’s current Clean Indoor Air Ordinance. If adopted, the suggested revisions would make the county’s businesses, parks and facilities completely smoke-free.

According to the DeKalb County Board of Health, the currently ordinance:

 “Allows smoking at free-standing bars, adult entertainment establishments and outdoor venues, including parks”.

This amendment would ban smoking in those places, playgrounds, entrances and exits to buildings, outdoor entertainment venues and outdoor service lines and would decreases the number of rooms a hotel can designate for smoking from 25 percent to 10 percent.

The amended ordinance has been submitted to the Board of Commissioners for their consideration and adoption.
