As we age our risk for falling increases, something we don’t want to think or talk about. There are many different reasons why people fall, however the risk factors for falling increases as we age. From reduced muscle strength, reduced joint range of motion, still muscles, bone and/or joint problems, loss of sensation (peripheral neuropathy in the feet due to diabetes or chemo therapy), reduced vision, changes in the inner ear (vestibular), and then there are environmental hazards that can cause a fall to happen and taking certain types of medication.
This winter has been very trying for all. I do not like to see anyone slip all over the place, risk injury, get hurt; especially, when there is a great solution.
Please look up ice treads or cleats to find a vast majority of versatile, portable slip resistant items that easily fit on footwear.
Another reason, among many, not to eat at fast food establishments. Besides eating too many calories when we are out and nutritional values of fast food is dismal, we intake chemicals, non real food and added colors…. and we wonder why we can’t lose weight. We intake “stuff” our body cannot process therefore screwing up our metabolism. Eat food with ingredients you can pronounce.

Over the past decade or so I've given much thought to quality of life. When I look at the strength and quality of life of people 50, 100, 150 years ago to the strength and quality of life of people today I'm not sure we are doing the right thing. I have told my family that if I am ever in a position that my life is dependent on machines, medicine, artificial blood cleansing - I am not interested, I don't want to live that way.
