If we really got back to nature By Rocco Castellano One of my favorite things to do is “blow” shit up. I don’t mean throw a grenade under a car, put an M-80 in a trash can “blow shit up.” I mean blow up lies, urban legends or misconceptions that have plagued us for years. […]

A tough cell By Marsha Bonhart “You have lung cancer.” It’s one of the most dreaded phrases in a diagnosis. Five years ago, Kathleen Fennig of Beavercreek got that message. “A non-smoking relative was diagnosed with lung cancer and because I had been a smoker, I wanted to be screened,” she said.
