3. What is DESERT FEVER? (Very real, between June 30 and Sept., 30. Called other things i.e. “valley fever”, etc. A blood test will show if you have antibodies against this and then it can be treated. Found in very dry climates. Caused by a fungus. Spores that hide in the dust, then you inhale them and they go into your lungs. Most people have no issues but some folks get a slight case of “Valley Fever” 1. Shortness of breath. 2. Fever. 3. Cough. 4. Chest pains. Looks like COPD sometimes. Most of the time the symptoms go away but the fungus DOES NOT. If you have a WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM it will not CLEAR the spores. Show up as little masses. In some people it can go into your brain, your spine, your skin. IT IS TREATABLE. Needs to be treated for 3 to 6 months. They will get it again and again and again UNLESS THEIR IMMUNE SYSTEM IS STRONGER.)
4. D.O.H.C. donated more money to Non-Profits.? (D.O.H.C. donates to many many Non-profits. This year D.O.H.C. let their employees pick 3 non-profits and D.O.H.C. gave an extra $30,000 to their choices; Palm Springs Animal Shelter, Desert Cancer Foundation and Find Food Bank.).
5. What Vitamin helps you live longer? (Vit. D the sunshine vitamin.)
