Serve over 18 billion meals daily. This is the challenge we must meet if we are to feed all members of the human community three square meals a day. There are now over six billion of us, and we all want to eat two, maybe three, meals a day. In America, the norm appears to be moving in the direction of one long, continuous “grazing period.”
Monthly testicular self-exams (TSE) can save your scrotum. It’s a risk-free, pain-free way to check your testes for potential problems because testicular cancer comes with virtually no obvious symptoms or pain. According to the National Cancer Institute, cancer of the testes is the most common cancer in men 15 to 35 years of age.

Astrology shows possibilities… you have the power of choice! Charlie Gould’s “Planet Digest”
I was supposed to write an article generating excitement about USM’s Earth Day celebrations. I poked around on the Internet looking for some inspiring Earth Day tidbits to share. Oddly, and perhaps appropriately, given the current state of the environment, the first few sites I looked at were not uplifting and celebratory.

Smallpox is a contagious and sometimes fatal disease caused by the variola virus. No one has naturally contracted smallpox since 1977. In 1980, the World Health Assembly declared that smallpox was eradicated throughout the world.

What you eat affects the air you exhale. Certain foods, such as garlic and onions, can contribute to breath odor. Once the food is absorbed into the bloodstream, it is transferred to the lungs, where it is expelled.
Twelve months of struggling to maneuver our hefty baby girl into the back of our two-door car finally convinced us it was time for a more practical vehicle. Agreeing on a car with four doors was easy. After that our opinions diverged. I was intrigued by a hybrid gas electric car promising over 50 miles per gallon (mpg). My husband’s priority was safety; his top choice chugged along at 22 mpg.

Most USM students weren’t born with silver spoons in their mouths, and have to work, go into debt, or depend on a spouse to help pay the bills. Here are a few tips on how to make the dollar go further at income tax time. If your parents are helping out, be sure they haven’t overlooked these opportunities. Even if they know about them, they’ll appreciate your concern.
What you eat affects the air you exhale. Certain foods, such as garlic and onions, can contribute to breath odor. Once the food is absorbed into the bloodstream, it is transferred to the lungs, where it is expelled. Particles of food that remain in the mouth, collecting bacteria, can also cause bad breath. These bacteria can cause gum disease, or gingivitis. One of the warning signs of gum disease is persistent bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth.

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common vaginal infection in women of childbearing age. The cause is not fully understood. BV is associated with an imbalance in the bacteria that are found in a woman’s vagina, which normally contains mostly “good” bacteria and fewer “harmful” bacteria. BV develops when there is a change in the environment of the vagina that causes an increase in harmful bacteria.
Ingredients for a great day: spectacular fall weather, a boat ride through Casco Bay, crashing surf, sunshine, yummy sandwiches, hot cider, homemade pies, good company, and 430 pounds of garbage. Garbage?? That’s right! On a late September weekend last fall, a group of 10 USM students, faculty, staff, and alumni spent the day picking up trash from the rocks and beaches of Long Island in Casco Bay. USM’s new Office of Environmental and Economic Sustainability sponsored the outing as part of International Coastweek Cleanup.

The new Ortho Evra birth control patch is a highly effective, weekly hormonal patch that is worn on the skin to prevent pregnancy. It’s worn continuously for one week and replaced on the same day of the week for three consecutive weeks, with the fourth week “patch-free.” You can expect your menstrual period to begin a few days after removing the third patch (during the patch-free week). Ortho Evra is 99 percent effective when used correctly.
Frostbite is a common injury resulting from exposure to cold. Simply defined, it’s the freezing of the skin and/or the bodily tissues under the skin. The fluids in the body tissues and cellular spaces freeze and crystallize. This can cause damage to the blood vessels and result in blood clotting and lack of oxygen to the affected area.
