A few months ago, I decided it was time for a post 50 beauty makeover. The idea began during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in July when I bought a Laura Mercier makeup palette and a set of Bobbie Brown makeup brushes. I never owned a nice set of brushes. It was an important investment for my life after 50.

"Did you have your bone density scan?" asked Dr. S during my annual gynecological examination earlier this year.

"Yep, I had my last scan in February 2015, and it indicated that I had osteopenia, a lesser degree of bone loss, which may lead to osteoporosis."

"OK," said Dr. S. "No medication is indicated at this time." Dr. S recommended that I get a Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan every two years to check my bone health.

While the overall rates for smoking in the United States are declining, the battle is far from over. The statistics tell an upsetting story as smoking relates to vulnerable populations, like the mentally ill and the LGBT community.
