Risk Factors for Diabetes

The causes of diabetes are complex and only partly understood. Why any particular person gets diabetes isn't completely known. Complicating the situation is the fact that there are different types of the disease, though Type 1 and Type 2 are the most common. Each results from a combination of environmental and genetic influences.

Decorating Your Home For Easter


Few people string lights up outdoors for Easter. But a great way to greet guests on this special day is to have a string on the front door in the shape of a colorful egg or bunny. You can even make a nice design in the shape of an Easter lily.

It's no accident that Easter is close to the beginning of Spring when the Earth comes alive. This ancient festival began as a celebration of fertility and new beginnings. You can help show that by planting some Easter flowers in yellow, red and blue - all traditional colors.

Easter Flower Gift Ideas for Everyone

Start the season off right by selecting some bright tulips. Yellow, orange, pink or purple, they are available in all the Easter colors. Put them in a brightly colored pail and decorate the handle with a ribbon and an Easter tag in the shape of a bunny.

A bucket of blossoms isn't the only way to deliver those delightful Easter flowers, though. A beautiful coffee cup full of violet plants can be more than just petals on a plate. The cup itself can reflect the fine color of these welcome messengers of Spring.
