How Health Are You?

Here's a list from DivineCaroline.com of four signs you're in relatively GOOD health.

1. When You Empty Your Bladder, It's Fairly Clear. It should be a pale yellow color, and you should be using the bathroom a few times a day.  It's a sign that you're properly hydrated, and your kidneys are healthy.

If it's cloudy, dark, or bright yellow, it's a sign you're dehydrated.  And if it's clear, it means you're too hydrated, which isn't a big deal.  But when you are, your body doesn't absorb enough salts and electrolytes.

2. Your Cuts Heal Fairly Quickly. It means your blood is clotting normally, your white blood cells are carrying away bacteria like they should, and your blood vessels are healthy.

If you bruise easily or it takes weeks for a cut to heal, it could be a sign of liver disease, a bone marrow disorder, or hemophilia . . . which is when your blood doesn't clot right.

But don't freak out.  Bruising easily can also be caused by medication, or just the fact that you're getting older.

Because as you age, the smallest type of blood vessels in your body . . . your capillaries . . . become more prone to rupture.  And your skin also gets thinner, which doesn't help.

If you get a cheeseburger instead and ask for just fries and NO apples, it's 700 calories.  Now, here's their list of the best and worst options for kids at nine other popular fast food restaurants.
