March 28, 2011 - 4:38pm

Laughter really may be the best medicine after all. A new study found laughing, along with listening to your favorite music or funny jokes could lower your blood pressure. It could even lower it as much as if you cut salt from your diet or dropped 10 pounds. Researchers say reducing your numbers this much has been linked to a 5% to 15% lower risk of death from heart disease or stroke.

Alabama Population

March 28, 2011 - 3:34pm

From the young to the young at heart, Alabama's population is getting older. New census numbers show the state grew nearly 4.8 million people in the last decade, and the number of people between the ages of 45-64 grew significantly. Officials say this could create challenges for the state in up coming years. This means there will be additional needs for services for older people. State health officials say they are focusing on programs to help seniors live a more healthy life.

Social networking may be linked to possible health problems for kids. In fact, pediatricians might start asking their young patients a simple question. Are you on Facebook? Experts say doctors should talk with parents and children about problems they run into on social networks like cyber-bullying and “sexting.” Parents are urged to become better educated about the networks and apps their kids are using, and to frequently talk with their children about online experiences.
