Blog note: Before I start today’s post, I want to thank everyone who has followed “Men and Health: It’s a Guy Thing.” WordPress tells me I’ve reached 100 posts! That’s hard to believe. I want to thank the following men and women for contributing to this blog over the last several months: Dr. Margaret Lewin, Dr. Sheldon Marks, Dr. Jack Stern, Dr. Barry Buffman, Dr. Steven Joyal, Dr. Michael Addis, John Porten, Dr. Gregory Poland, Dr. David Lieberman, Dr. Alex Visco and Dr. Steven Schnur. I thank for inviting me to be a TopHealthBlogger.  In the year ahead, there are many challenges. I hope to add several more features and interview many more doctors, authors and specialists. I hope this blog becomes  a one-stop health resource for baby boomer men and the women who love them. Your participation is what will drive this blog in the future. My goal is to produce an entertaining, educational and interactive site.

And now, back to work on my 101st post.

What if you’re going to spend the rest of your life on an island, light years away from humanity. You can make only one choice from the following comforts:  as many books as you want, an unlimited collection of music, all the weight/exercise equipment you’ll need, and an endless supply of  classic motion pictures.  This is a tough one to ponder. If good health is your goal, a music collection could be the way to go.

If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, perhaps some soothing music will do the same. Consider the following from HealthDay reporter Kathleen Doheny. But remember, don’t crank the volume too high. Your neighbors may be sleeping!
