HIV Information

Correct HIV information is crucial, especially for teenagers. Our education system should provide all the necessary information in order to keep our children safe and sound.

Effects Of Stress On The Body

The effects of stress on the body are largely underestimated. Stress can be a silent killer, with high blood pressure, hearth problems, digestive trouble or sleep difficulties.
