Thank you to all who participated in the Dallas Cowboys Junior Training Camp. It was an awesome event. Rowdy was great, I included a video of Rowdy teasing Mr. Boyd! My favorite part was watching the station where you crashed into the yellow tackling dummy and landed on the mat (like a goal line dive). Hope you enjoyed the Gatorade….Go Cowboys!!

The topic for Health this six weeks is about drugs and disease.  Since the past week was Drug Awareness Week, I just wanted to say that no one can force you to make bad decisions.  You have the ability to make the right choice!!  REMEMBER, when it comes to drugs: JUST SAY NO!

Scientists are finding evidence that the red-pigmented antioxidant lycopene found in many fruits and vegetables, especially tomatoes, may play a substantial role in reducing the risk for cancer and heart disease.

Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, has the ability to prevent and repair cell damage.  It has also been proven to help prevent high cholesterol, atherosclerosis, and macular degeneration, which can lead to blindness.

Some examples of foods high in lycopene are canned tomatoes, raw tomatoes, ketchup, pasta sauce, pizza sauce, watermelons, and grapefruit.
