Here's this morning's challenge question: According to the CDC (Centers For Disease Control), the incidence of this in U.S. adults is 27% lower than it was 10 years ago. What?
It's HIGH CHOLESTEROL.
Apparently, we've all been eating better, exercising more, and those of us that are on cholesterol-lowering medications are finding them effective, too - it's not as prevalent as it used to be.
A bit of good news for your Friday morning - and Ken starts his weekend on a happy note, too, with a $30 gift card to the Lobster Claw.
Congratulations to all the Grand Prize winning moms in our Mother's Day contests as well - we were happy to brighten the weekend for a few very lucky moms. It'll be an especially happy mother's day for Sabrina Yates from West Yarmouth, winner of the Stress Relief Spa Package from the Beach Plum Spa (she won by attending Mom's Nite Out at the Cape Cod Mall last night); Diane LeRoy of Sandwich, who was nominated by her son John in our Hannoush Jewelers "Why Your Mom Matters" contest; and Andrea Camelio form Marstons Mills who won 12 consecutive monthly cleanings from the Merry Maids for her mom, Jacquie, in our "Sparkle and Shine" contest. Thanks to ALL our amazing prize providers, including the Green Spot, who brightened all our qualifying moms' day with $25 gift cards for flowers and plants!
