Celebrity Varicose Veins: Big Brother
Those people who follow the show Big Brother know that there is a lot of drama that goes on between the people on this reality program. But there are also actually some interesting tidbits of information that get thrown out now and then by the participants in the show.
For example, Lisa on the show recently said
that she chooses never to cross her legs because she is afraid that doing so will block the circulation in her legs and lead her to get varicose veins. Smart varicose vein prevention does actually involve trying to do things that help to make sure that there is regular circulation flowing through the veins in the leg.
Of course, varicose vein prevention
doesn't specifically require that you never cross your legs. It has more to do with being aware of the importance of circulation in the veins and making sure to regularly walk and stretch to avoid problems with poor circulation. But it's interesting to see that it's a topic that even got a mention on Big Brother.Question of the Day: What other tidbits of medical information might you get from a show like Big Brother?photo link
