Last week, you shared with pictures of your favorite pet on our Facebook page, for your chance to win a $50 gift card to Jeffer's Pet Supplies. We were overwhelmed with cute images and our heart skipped a beat for 21-year-old Buzz, who's blind and deaf (and looks like a giant stuffed animal).
Congratulations to Savings.com user and Facebook fan Lourdes Doyle, and her therapy dog, Leo. Leo may not have legs that work properly, but he's making a difference not only in his family's life, but also as a therapy dog. Lourdes, I've sent you
each an email with instructions on how to claim your prize. If
some reason it doesn't reach you, send me an email at email@example.com before the end of the
day on Tuesday, April 17th or another winner will be chosen.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month which was created to educate everyone about the importance of getting regular mammograms to check for the common cancer. With early detection, 95% of patients survive which magnifies the importance of regular check-up. One in eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime which is 12% too many. In order to raise money and awareness for research, many companies are offering special promotions during the month of October.

Dr. Oz triggered fear in parents with his claim that there is arsenic in apple juice. After further investigation by the FDA, it has been concluded that the low levels of arsenic in apple juice are okay for consumption and parents can continue to feed them to their children. Apparently, arsenic is naturally present in food, water and air in both organic and non-organic forms. As long as the arsenic is organic, it's basically harmless.
While the anxiety over arsenic in Mott's apple juice has turned out to be a non-issue, another fruit is the focus of the latest food recall: Cantaloupes from a Colorado farm
are infected with Listeria, a bacteria found in soil, stream water,
plants, sewage and food. The
outbreak has already killed two people and left another 22 sick. Infections caused by Listeria are potentially
fatal. Yikes! Who would have thought that a melon could kill you?
These two stories inspired me to write about food recalls. Thinking back, there have been several recalls lately.

At MTV's VMAs last Sunday, Beyonce slyly announced her pregnancy by unbuttoning her jacket and rubbing her noticeably enlarged belly. Given that Beyonce and husband Jay-z ranked number two on Forbe's list of World's Highest Paid Celebrity Couples, they won't be worrying about hand-me-downs or diaper deals for their progeny.
For those of us in the real world, however, pregnancy can be a financial strain even while being a joyful event. As such, we've dug into the Blog & Save archives to bring you expert advice on how to save money during your pregnancy.

Money Saving Tips
A recent Chinese study showed that women who ate lots of fiber were 11% less likely to get breast cancer than those who ate less. Research didn't prove that the fiber intake lowered their chances of cancer, but that those who ate more fiber were generally healthier overall with lower cholesterol and less weight gain. So, I guess an apple a day does really keep the doctor and his high fees away. Most people think of fiber as tasteless, chewy and something you have to eat. Not so, fiber is actually found naturally in lots of delicious fruits, vegetables, grains and other natural sources.
What are some easy and economical ways to boost your fiber intake without resorting to Metamucil or other higher priced and unnatural items?

In a recent study, NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) including ibuprofen commonly known as Advil, were found to increase the risk of heart attacks in recent victims. 45% of them were more likely to die or have another attack after taking these drugs. Scary, huh? Which brings me to ponder the correct usage of pain killers and the benefits they may provide for you.
