Savings / Safety Tips for August 2017 from All Safety Products, Inc.

Avoid a medical emergency - Heat and humidity add up to danger!

Emergency rooms see an increase in cases of heat stroke and dehydration in July and August.  The American College of Emergency Physicians gives this advice on how to stay safe in hot weather:

Check the heat index before going out to work, play or practice and plan accordingly.

Avoid direct sunlight in the middle of the day. Schedule activities for the early morning or early evening hours.

Wear loose, light-colored clothes and hats. Dark colors absorb more heat.

Drink lots of water or sports drinks; about 8 ounces an hour when in the sun in order to avoid dehydration.

Take frequent breaks in the shade or in air-conditioning to cool off.  Calculate the "apparent temperature" before taking part in activities.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:

At 90 degrees and 50 percent humidity, it feels like 96. At 70 percent humidity, it feels like 106 degrees. Heat exhaustion is likely, so take it easy.
     
Heat exhaustion can include cramps, heavy sweating, nausea, heart-rate changes and dizziness.

Get the victim out of the sun, remove excess clothing and place cool towels on extremities.

Fan and give small sips of water.

At 95 degrees and 50 percent humidity, it feels like 107 degrees. At 70 percent humidity, it feels like 124 degrees. At that temperature and at any higher temperature or humidity, it is extremely dangerous to be outside and heatstroke could occur.

At 100 degrees, humidity ranging from 35 percent to 55 percent can cause heat exhaustion.

At 100 degrees, humidity of 60 percent or higher puts a person into heat stroke territory.  Heatstroke is a medical emergency. Symptoms include confusion, an altered mental state, unconsciousness and hot, dry skin.

Call 911. Do not give fluids, which can cause seizures.

ADHD teens and car accidents!

Teens with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder( ADHD) are more likely to have a car accident, according to a newstudy.

According to Allison Curry, director of epidemiology and biostatistics at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, ADHD teens are less likely to get a license after they become eligible and more likely to have an accident.

Curry's study compared New Jersey health records to car accidents. Of the 2,500 teens with ADHD, nearly 43 percent had a car crash. About 36 percent of teens without ADHD had a crash, the study found. 

Only 12 percent of ADHD teens had been prescribed medication in the month before driving.   

The study was reported in the journal JAMA Pediatrics.

Healthy Tip For August

Exercise helps lower back pain, experts say.  Most people suffer from lower back pain at one point or another, but treating it remains hit and miss.     

Research reported by Reuters says that 80 percent of all people will suffer from some sort of back pain during their lives.

An estimated 90 percent of all chronic pain sufferers are prescribed opioid pain medications for treatment. Although they may work as a treatment for a short period, opioids don't work in the long-term and can also cause a host of negative side effects.

Exercise can help with pain.  The most important areas to target for lower back pain are, perhaps unsurprisingly, located near the lower back.These include the  back extensors, deep core stabilizers, glutes, and abdominals.

Secondary areas include the upper leg muscles as they act as support structures for the back.
According to Prevention Magazine, target the back with the half lunge, stretching, basic yoga like the child's pose, and strength training movements like the squat.

Using the squat as an example, this exercise helps to stabilize and strengthen the whole body and helps prepare the body for actions that would typically cause back pain like picking up a child or lifting a heavy box.  If the muscles are strong and secure, there is much less chance of an injury.     

The best part of these methods is that in many cases all of these routines can be performed for free and in the comfort of your home.

According to popular fitness blog Greatist, back-strengthening exercises, breathing, and yoga all work to prevent the weaknesses that can come from modern society's  increasingly sedentary lifestyle.      

Performing these movements also helps the body to tolerate more activity as it ages which can contribute to longer lifespans with longer periods of health.

Delicious Recipe: Low-carb stuffed peppers spice up the season

Bell peppers have it all: They're nutritious, fun to grow, pest resistant and beautiful.

Unlike most, bell peppers (named for their distinctive shape) don't have the spicy ingredient capsaicin and are, instead, tangy with a satisfying crisp.

Like all peppers, bells love the warmth and gardeners must take care that the soil is at a minimum of 67 degrees before planting. Once in the ground, these peppers  do a good job of resisting garden pests.     Nutritionally, they do some heavy lifting.

A medium pepper provides 159 percent of the daily vitamin C requirement with no cholesterol and virtually no fat. The red bells are actually older versions of the green bells and have even more vitamin C.     

They are delicious on a low carb diet for snacks, dipping or, as in this recipe, as part of a main course.

The traditional stuffed pepper recipe usually includes rice, which soaks up juices and holds the dish together.

In this recipe, the filling has no rice and is therefore looser, but also is very low in carbs.  A medium bell has about six carbs overall or four net carbs when accounting for fiber.  

All the carbs in this recipe are in the marinara sauce, which has about nine net carbs per half cup. You can estimate one stuffed bell pepper at about 13 carbs.

Ingredients for Peppers stuffed with Italian sausage and beef
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound ground Italian sausage
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Cook beef and sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until browned and crumbly.
  • Drain well as the filling with be juicy, and no extra juices are needed.     
  • Saute  onion and garlic in pan 5 minutes or until tender.
  • Stir in beef mixture, marinara, and oregano.
  • Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
  • For a cute cap look, cut bell peppers in half vertically; discard seeds and membranes.
  • Spoon beef mixture into peppers.

  • Bake 20 minutes or until peppers are tender.
  • For toppings, try arugula and basil or your favorite cheese.
