“The Sweetest Thing” show

Feb 16, 2017

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Health Matters produces this steaming pot of goodwill.  Rick explains why Martin Luther King Day is his favorite holiday, we discuss hot red chili peppers, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and we give you our exclusive Health Matters healthy housecleaning tips. Fall in love all over again (if you survive this show).

Tip:  Healthy housecleaning focuses on the parts of your house that might make you sick. Emphasize cleaning “high touch” surfaces such as doorknobs, counters, phones, and bathroom fixtures. Dust mites under the bed will not make you sick
