The modern version of April Fools' started around 1562 when Pope Gregory introduced a new calendar with the year beginning on January 1st. Many people, however, continued celebrating the new year on April 1st, thus the birth of the "April Fools'" phrase.
One of the best April Fools' jokes was started in 1998 when Burger King ran an ad in USA Today to announce its new "Left-Handed Whopper". Though it was obviously a joke, the company said thousands went to Burger King to request the new left-hand-friendly burger! And if you think that's funny, go to Google.com near April 1st to see what tricks they have up their sleeves for April Fool's Day - they always do something fun! [TOP]

By now you have experienced the benefits of Chiropractic care to your health.
But what about your children? Have you ever considered bringing them in for a

Easter right around the corner,
the Metro Denver Dental Society would like to dispel some misconceptions –
namely, that candy is worse for teeth than juice, sports drinks and sodas.
Actually, the Society says that these liquids are capable of doing more damage
to a child’s teeth than chocolate and other sweets. A 20-oz bottle of Mountain
Dew®, for example, contains 77 grams of sugar, compared with only 22 grams found
in a Hershey® bar. Gatorade® contains 35 grams of sugar compared with a serving
of Oreo® Cookies® that only contain 30 grams. About 80 percent of a child’s
typical diet, the Society says, can cause cavities, including breads, cookies
and milk and countless desserts. To reduce the number of cavities, parents
should watch their children and make sure they brush their teeth immediately
after they eat candy. This is especially true with hard candy or licorice, which
can often get stuck between teeth and remain there for days. Flossing is also
important – but before you brush, not afterward. Other tips for parents include:
limiting candy eating to once per day, preferably after meals; and if brushing
teeth is impossible at the time, make sure that children at least rinse their
to the Archives of Family Medicine, you can save a bundle by drinking plain 'ole tap water. Water from the faucet is more likely to offer you health benefits and even be more "pure" than some bottled water brands. For one, tap water contains fluoride, which helps to prevent tooth decay and osteoporosis. Only 5% of bottled water companies adhere to public water fluoride standards, reports Harvard.
Secondly, tap water is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency which required municipalities to follow strict safety regulation in water quality. Bottled-water companies are not required to follow the same rigorous quality standards.
What's more, controlling some substances in bottled water may be more difficult, because bottled water tends to be stored for longer periods of time and at higher temperatures than tap water. [TOP]

Today's woman constantly juggles an incredible number of responsibilities such as jobs, children, friendships, family, marriages, errands, appointments and much more - the list is endless! You've got to be healthy just to keep up! Women have special health concerns during each phase of their lives; pregnancy is certainly no exception and is in fact one of the most important and complex phases! Although the changes women experience from pregnancy are natural, a little extra help is always needed to cope with the dramatic changes in their bodies.
A perfect pregnancy...
In addition to the noticeable changes pregnancy causes in a woman's body, pregnancy can cause subtle changes in the musculoskeletal system; changes your Chiropractor is able to detect and correct. Because the baby lies forward in the woman's body during pregnancy, her center of gravity shifts and the spine alters itself to accommodate this change. As a result, many expectant mothers may experience low back and pelvic pain. These stresses and strains can be relieved with regular Chiropractic care. Many Chiropractic patients report that their deliveries were faster, easier and much more comfortable than deliveries prior to Chiropractic care.
It is especially important during pregnancy that nerve impulses flow from the brain to all parts of the body. A slightly out-of-place vertebra can create nerve irritation that snarls the body's communication system. Using gentle spinal adjustments, the Chiropractic Doctor can relieve this nerve irritation, allowing the body's energy to flow freely again and eliminate periodic pain through nature's own healing power. Your doctor will use special, modified techniques during your pregnancy to make your spinal adjustments easy and more comfortable.
It's easier to be fit, healthy and experience a trouble-free pregnancy when your body freely sends the right messages. Chiropractic care focuses on the overall effects of spinal misalignments on the nerves that carry health-giving energy to every cell of the body. Chiropractic helps women get well and stay well - before, during and after their pregnancies!

Each new day about 10,000 Americans try chiropractic care for the first time. Some have only minor complaints. Some suffer from the pain and misery of serious health problems, injuries, and maladies. Some turn to chiropractic as a last resort.
Still, despite this groundswell-demand for modern chiropractic, many persons in need of chiropractic care more than anything else in the world, put off trying this safe, painless, drugless health care method because they aren’t sure what chiropractic is and how it works.
How regrettable! It’s bad enough to be ill or in pain, but to also be unfamiliar with the very method that might help. . .well, that’s tragic. . .especially when chiropractic is so close at hand.
Thanks for referring your Friends to Chiropractic!

Some 200 new computer viruses are reported every month, and more than 50,000 digital bugs are known so far.
So make sure you’re protecting your computers at home and at work. Here’s how:
Check new programs and files before you open them. Never open attached files from unknown sources. And always run an antivirus program to check software.
Deal with a virus at the first sign of infection. If you run regular virus checks, you should be able to catch a virus before it spreads. A good precaution to take is to use an automatic virus-detection software and another antivirus program.
Update your antivirus software regularly. Experts advise that you update the software every month for your home computer and every week for corporate systems. Many antivirus programs have updates that can be downloaded from the Web.
Periodically back up your files. Copy your important files to floppies or zip drives. If a virus does get through, you’ll have your most important document on hand.
