It's a new year and it's time to get back into the motion of things. Every year, millions of people vow to work out, find solutions to lose weight and commit to staying healthy. But, did you ever wonder how you could do all of this without being financially unhealthy?
Countless of times when I saw my husband not go to the gym, all I could see was that $39.99 monthly fee go out the window. I know plenty of people who cancelled their gym memberships mid-year because they weren't taking advantage of the facilities that they were fully paying for.
If you want to know how you can stay healthy and fit and keep your bank account equally healthy and fit, our DealPros have some really great tips to share with you!
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.

It's been all over the news lately, this brain-eating amoeba (Naegleria fowleri) that has claimed the lives of 2 adults and 1 child. Apparently, this deadly amoeba thrives in warm, stagnant water found in freshwater lakes, ponds and rivers. The parasite enters through the nose and travels up to the brain where it eventually devours your brain. Symptoms include fever, stiff neck and nausea and headache along with meningitis. The public is being warned to avoid swimming in shallow warm water where these amoeba live. I don't know about you, but I've never been on to dive into stagnant water. I always feel like something creepy is going to jump out at me.
But then again, one of the deaths did result from drinking contaminated tap water. *shudders*
This got me thinking about what other weird diseases there are that we don't know about. I present to you the top four.

I'm not a fan of smoke. It's disgusting and makes my lungs cringe. Okay, it's fine if you want to smoke, but please spare the rest of us from the nastiness. With this being said, a recent article stated that Humana, a health insurance company based in Arizona will not be hiring people who smoke or use tobacco. However, current employees are still allowed to smoke but will be encouraged to stop with free smoking cessation programs. Hmm...I can see controversy brewing already.
Smoking bans are not new. Many places worldwide have banned smoking in restaurants and indoors. Here are a few that come to mind.

Many of us grew up with red meat just once a week because Mom and Dad didn't make a lot of money. Red meat was a special treat, offered only once in a while. Because of this, some families see red meat on the table as proof of success. They may even feed their families red meat as much as three times a week. Sound familiar?
This kind of meat indulgence is bad for your wallet, body and the environment.
