    I also wanted to share some links with you of some new content on other Health Central sites:

    * If you have a child with ADHD, other issues may go with this disorder such as speech and language problems. In addition there has been some research to show that some children who stutter also have ADHD. For more information please read my post, "ADHD and Stuttering."

    * On the Anxiety site I have been writing about caffeine lately. Did you know that caffeine can be a trigger for anxiety and even induce panic attacks for some? True. So this week I wrote about how to quit caffeine if you are one of those folks who suffers from adverse effects from consuming too much caffeine.

    * Okay so everybody knows to slather on the sunscreen in order to prevent skin damage from the sun. But are there other ways to prevent wrinkles and skin cancer caused by too much exposure to the sun? There sure are. In this post I discuss five easy ways to protect your skin from the sun.

    * I am sure everyone has had the experience of developing an unexplained rash. But did you know that sometimes a rash is a sign of a potentially fatal disease or medical condition? In this post I discuss three rashes which you should not ignore.



    Hope everybody is having a good Thursday! Just think...Friday is almost here. Looking forward to hearing from all of you.
