Playing the Lottery with Your Health

It seems everyone is abuzz today with hopes of hitting it big. With a record $550 million (or more) Powerball payout, lottery fever is reaching a peak in 42 states across the country. While we all know our chances of winning are slim, lottery officials expect hourly ticket sales today to top $6 million an hour. In fact, jackpots of this size tend to bring in new players, who do not regularly buy lottery tickets. Today is a day most people, it appears, are willing to gamble.
