The University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital conducted a National Poll for the sixth year in a row on children's health.
The number one parental concern?
Karina Smirnoff of DWTS and Cristy Rice of The Real Housewives of Miami were recently down on the sandy shores of South Beach, Miami.
The ladies were showing off their paddle boarding skills on the beautiful Miami waters.
When they were done with their ocean adventuring, Cristy refueled with some Muscle Milk Light!
It's the perfect combo of low calories, vitamins and protein to help recover after any activity, like running from sharks on a paddle board.
We're just assuming there were sharks there.
Anyway, these ladies are looking good with their fit bikini bods!
Keep it up, gurls!

Our pulse is going WILD!
We know, we know — this spread in the upcoming EPSN Body Issue is meant to show the human form in various states of pure physical activity, but we can't help it if they're simultaneously
boner inducing beautiful as well!
From basketballer Tyson Chandler to surfer Maya Gabeira, ESPN has found 27 athletes ready to bare it all!
These women and men are the pinnacle of human body fitness, and since we're all about fitness here at FitPerez.com, we thought we'd share some with you!

Ever pull an all-nighter?
Things can get weird to say the least.
Apparently it's because the longer you stay awake, the more active your brain becomes!
Seems counterintuitive but researchers found that after hours and hours of being awake, the brain is randomly firing, making connections with other neurons, which ups our brain activity.
Most of these connections don't actually mean or do anything, which explains why its hard to get new info into a tired brain.
What the scientists did was prod human brains with electrical impulses at different lengths of sleep deprivation and measure how much activity the brain responded with.
They've found that this increase in activity is what leads epileptics to be more susceptible to seizures and depressed people to feel better after skipping a night of sleep.
All that extra activity in the brain causes the changes.
So now you know how your mind can be racing right before you try to go to bed!
Could this be a step in the direction of decriminalizing marijuana in NY??
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has just proposed cutting the penalty for public possession of small amounts of weed!
It would, in practice, reduce the criminal misdemeanor to a violation with a fine up to $100.
This would save thousands of New Yorkers, disproportionately black and Hispanic youths, from unnecessary arrests and criminal charges!
Unnecessary is the key word there!
What's interesting is that Cuomo has some heavy support, too: New York City prosecutors and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, whose offices handled almost 50,000 such criminal cases last year, endorsed the Democratic governor's plan.
We definitely feel like this will help redirect limited resources to serious crime.
This does NOT include sparking up in public, though, and he explains:
"I believe the society does want to discourage the use of marijuana in public, on the street. Smoking a joint, I think, is a different level of activity than just being in possession of it."
We can understand that!
This seems like a step in the right direction, though, and people in NY should be very happy if it passes!
