Avocados are popular for good reason. Not only are they delicious, they're packed with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that can help keep you healthy.

Avocados have more potassium than bananas, are loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, and are full of fiber. They can help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, help you absorb nutrients from plant foods, and improve digestion. They may also prevent cancer, relieve symptoms of arthritis, and help decrease the risk of depression.

So, enjoy this little green treasure on National Avocado Day, July 31st, and all year long.

Many people believe that sun damage that leads to skin cancer occurs during childhood. And if a senior grew up not using sunscreen, they might not think they need it now. The Skin Cancer Foundation states that over half of all skin cancer related deaths occur in people over the age of 65.

Ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause skin damage in as little as 15 minutes. Some UV rays can penetrate glass windows in homes and cars. Even on cloudy days, the sun's rays can still affect you. 

A sunscreen that is labeled SPF 30 can absorb and reflect 97% of the sun's burning rays. Look for a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection that will help keep you safe from both UVA and UVB rays. 

Sunscreen sticks are good for ears and noses. Sprays and creams can cover large areas more efficiently. Gels tend to adhere better on areas with hair. And they all have a similar effectiveness.

The biggest mistake people make is applying too little. And it should be reapplied every two to four hours, or more often if swimming or sweating heavily. Be sure to follow the directions on the bottle.
