Oh, Joy! Here are three new things to worry about...


#1.)  Tanning Beds Are Deep Frying You.  A new study has found that tanning beds may be MORE POWERFUL and filling you with MORE RADIATION than you ever thought.


The average bed is TWICE as strong as the afternoon sun.  Some are up to six times stronger.  (The Sun)  (Ironic source.  The "London Sun."  The actual sun did not report on this study.)


#2.)  Energy Drinks Are Driving Us To The Hospital.  According to new government estimates, from 2007 through 2011, the number of ER visits because of energy drinks more than DOUBLED.


The main reasons people go to the hospital after drinking an energy drink are irregular heartbeats, anxiety . . . and even HEART ATTACKS.  (Daily Mail)


#3.)  No One Is Ready To Drive In The Snow.  A new study by State Farm Insurance has found that less than one in 10 drivers has a car that's fully prepared for the snow.


Only 9% of people have jumper cables, a spare tire, a hazard triangle or road flares, a working flashlight, a first aid kit, water, and a blanket in their cars.  (New York Daily News)
