Research has shown that eating five servings or more a day of fruits and vegetables can make a significant contribution to lowering blood pressure and improving other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including stroke. Stroke is the third leading cause of death and the most common cause of disability. In a study published in the January 2006 issue of The Lancet, researchers analyzed results from eight large population studies totaling more than 275,000 people over 13 years to determine the relationship between fruit and vegetable intake and incidence of stroke.

Were not sure exactly when or where you would use a motorized ice chest, but we like wacky, gearhead-type products such as the Crusin Cooler. This icebox is sturdy enough to ride on (it can handle up to 250 pounds perched on the lid), while at the same time transporting the equivalent of 24, 12-ounce beverage cans. Each unit is equipped with your choice of a 300-, 500- and 750-watt electric motor, or a 33-c.c. two-stroke gas engine and a 39-c.c four-stroke gas engine. Also included are disc brakes and a set of retractable foot pegs (a cushion seat is optional)

email@example.com When school opens on Monday, Williamsport will already have a trophy to display in its windows. The Wildcats emerged as Washington County team champion on Wednesday at Black Rock Golf Course, and for good measure, also took medalist honors when Luke Hintze defeated Smithsburg's Riley Ledden in a one-hole playoff. Williamsport, which last won the county title in 2000, posted a 322-stroke team total to dethrone two-time defending champion Smithsburg, which finished second at 326. Boonsboro and North Hagerstown tied with 346, South Hagerstown was next at 374 and Clear Spring sixth with 449. "This was the first tournament of the year, and with the wind and pressure of this being a tournament, the scores were high," Williamsport coach Rod Steiner said.
