    BBB November Hot Topics

    1. H1N1 Scam:

    Be wary of any email or web site related to H1N1. People are falling victim to scams online, from "cure-all" supplements, to "H1N1 Flu Kits" that make claims to prevent you from catching the flu. The FDA recently created an H1N1 "Fraudulent Product List," available on its Web site: www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/h1n1flu/.


    2. BBB Scam:

  • November colon awareness time

    If you are 50 years old or older, it’s time to be checked for colon cancer.

    "Screening and early detection can save lives,” said Kentucky Department for Public Health Commissioner Commissioner William D. Hacker, M.D. “If you are 50 or older or have a history of colon cancer in your family, get checked. It’s the best way to ensure your future health and well-being, avoid more serious complications and reduce the cost of health care.”

    According to Capt. Ken Bernardi, police received a report of two vehicles driving recklessly through the grassy area of the park in the new phase.
