Learn How to Fight, Part 2

High Blood Pressure the Silent Killer

High blood pressure (HBP) is often called the Silent Killer because it has virtually no symptoms until/unless it gets to dangerous levels.

Pretty or Smart?

I saw a question in an online forum a couple days ago. It asked women if they would rather be called pretty or smart. Clearly, you’re supposed to say you’d rather be called smart, but that’s not what I said. I know I’m smart. And even if I didn’t, I’m told all the time. This is not bragging.
