California Drought: 10 Ways to Save Water

California Drought: 10 Ways to Save Water

There is no “I” in drought. There is also no “A”.

Because I live in Parched City, California, I know you little nanny goats have been dying to ask me what I’m doing to save water. Well, it doesn’t matter what I’m doing, what matters is that everyone else is doing it. And I’m here to tell them what for and how to. Did you know we’re suffering from the biggest California Drought ever (if you don’t go back more than 1200 years?)... Read More

Nutritious remedies for heart health

Nutritious remedies for heart health

The beginning of the year is always a time for resolutions, and Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento physician Rajiv Misquitta, MD, has one for you that is very timely considering February is American Heart Month.

Adopt a plant-based diet—basically, be vegan.

That’s what Dr. Misquitta did six years ago after he had a heart attack followed by a five-way bypass surgery four months later. He was just 40 and in reasonably good health.

The Internal Medicine doctor was discouraged that medicine could not completely keep his health problems at bay, so he made what many people might consider a drastic move: He eliminated all meat, dairy, and added fat, such as olive oil and nuts, from his diet. That decision was based on research suggesting a healthy lifestyle can reverse heart disease. He hasn’t had any heart problems since starting his new diet.

Recycle your holiday tree for free

Recycle your holiday tree for free

Give your holiday tree a proper send-off; rather than tossing it in the trash, recycle it! You’ll be doing our local landfills a favor.

Sacramento County Waste Management Recycling and SMUD are partnering again this year to offer free holiday tree recycling, including flocked trees, for residents and businesses of Sacramento County. Please remove all tinsel, lights, tree stands and nails prior to bringing them in.
