Building on a successful campaign that helped hundreds of thousands of Americans learn their risk of developing type 2 diabetes through campaign messaging and an online risk test, the first-of-its-kind initiative to raise national awareness of prediabetes returns with an entertaining new approach. The new campaign, launching today, encourages viewers to take a one-minute prediabetes risk test to know where they stand and discover how they can decrease their risk of developing type 2 diabetes — and it does so with some adorable helpers.
More than one in three American adults has prediabetes — a serious health condition that often leads to type 2 diabetes and other significant health conditions like blindness, heart attack or stroke. According to newly released CDC data, however, nearly 90 percent of the 84 million people with prediabetes don’t know they have it and aren’t aware of the long-term risks to their health. Currently, about 30 million Americans are living with diabetes.

As an addition to the social responsibility project it started for sheltering street animals, the lucky address for shopping, n11.com, has now redesigned its delivery boxes, turning them into portable "homes" that can protect animals living on the streets from the harsh conditions of winter.
Contributing to the e-trade sector with its innovative activities, n11.com has completed the design work that it has been conducting in the last period, turning its delivery boxes into portable "homes" for street animals.
The special boxes were designed to especially endure cold weather conditions and were produced after approximately a year of Research and Development efforts. From now on, shoppers who order pet food on n11.com will be contributing to providing street dogs and cats with a warm home.

http://nopetstorepuppies.com/ - Puppies are not toys. And you should never, ever shop at a pet store that sells puppies. You see, most pet store puppies come from puppy mills—you know, those large scale breeding operations where dogs live in horrible conditions and never receive love. Well, every time you buy anything from a pet store that sells puppies, you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re actually supporting this very cruel industry.
http://nopetstorepuppies.com/ - The ASPCA just announced the launch of a national fleet of covert canine agents tasked with using enhanced interrogation tactics to identify consumers supporting the cruel puppy mill industry by shopping in pet stores that sell puppies. Most puppies sold in pet stores come from puppy mills, where they are kept in hostile conditions and do not receive proper veterinary care. The ASPCA's interrogating canines will not roll over until this inhumane industry is eradicated.
Please share this video on your Facebook to make all Dog Owners aware that leaving dog poop behind is not such a great idea. We need more responsible dog owners to protect our playgrounds, parks and environment.
