Do I need to wear a mask outside if I am vaccinated? This is one of the biggest questions people are asking, especially since recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention wasn't crystal clear. On Wednesday, during an interview with CBS This Morning, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, answered the question once and for all. Read on to find out what Dr. Fauci has to say about whether or not you need to wear a mask outside if you are vaccinated, and for a few other key points that can save your life—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Caught COVID and Maybe Didn't Know It.If You Are Vaccinated, You Don't Need to Wear a Mask Outdoors, Says Dr. FauciAccording to Dr. Fauci, it isn't necessary for vaccinated people to wear a mask while they are outdoors. "We've got to make that transition," Fauci said. "If you are vaccinated, you don't have to wear a mask outside."There is only one situation when vaccinated people should mask up. "It would be a very unusual situation, if you were going into a completely crowded situation where people are essentially falling all over each other, then you wear a mask," he stated. "But any other time, if you're vaccinated and you're outside, put aside your mask. You don't have to wear it."RELATED: 9 Everyday Habits That Might Lead to Dementia, Say ExpertsWear a Mask in Crowds, Vaccinated or NotAfter the CDC updated their guidance in late April, advising that while vaccinated people can go unmasked at small outdoor gatherings they should still wear one in crowded settings, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), weighed in. "If you are fully vaccinated and want to attend a small outdoor gathering with people who are vaccinated and unvaccinated, or dine at an outdoor restaurant with friends from multiple households, the science shows if you are vaccinated, you can do so safely unmasked," she said during a virtual White House briefing. "Generally, for vaccinated people, outdoor activities without a mask are safe. However, we continue to recommend masking in crowded outdoor settings and venues, such as packed stadiums and concerts where there is decreased ability to maintain physical distance and where many unvaccinated people may also be present. We will continue to recommend this until widespread vaccination is achieved."RELATED: The #1 Reason You Could Get Cancer, According to ScienceDr. Fauci Also Said the Vaccine Was Safe for KidsAlso on CBS This Morning, Fauci said: "The information that we have now with literally almost 200 million people having been vaccinated here in the United States and worldwide, I mean, we've administered 264 million doses in the United States: The safety profile is really quite firm and sound…..I mean, it's the perfectly normal thing to be concerned about your children and to question, and that's the reason why you want to get them as much information as you possibly can and be very open and transparent about the information."RELATED: This Supplement Can Raise Your Heart Attack Risk, Experts SayDr. Fauci Said It's Essential for Kids to Get Vaccinated, for Two Reasons"It is very important for children to get vaccinated," Fauci said on CBS This Morning, "One, because even though it's quite true that if children get infected, the seriousness of the infection in children is clearly less than the potential in certain adults, particularly the elderly and those with underlying conditions. But we are all starting to see younger people get into serious trouble, again at a very low rate, but serious trouble. But the other aspect of it that they need to understand is that when children get infected, even though they may not in fact get serious illness, they could inadvertently and innocently passing the infection on to someone else, perhaps another member of the family who is vulnerable and could get into trouble."RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" CancersHow to Stay Safe During the Rest of This PandemicSo follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered when needed, don't travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

Osteoporosis, a condition in which the bones become thin or brittle, may indicate that a woman is at increased risk of heart problems, a new study says. According to research published in the journal Heart, thinning of the lower (lumbar) spine, top of the thigh bone (femoral neck), and hip are especially linked to a higher risk of heart attack or stroke. Read on to see if you're at risk—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Caught COVID and Maybe Didn't Know It.Women have a higher risk than menWomen have a higher risk of death from cardiovascular issues than men — 21% to 15% — and currently used risk factors are male-centric, so better risk assessors are needed for women, the researchers said.Women commonly receive a test called a DXA scan to check for osteoporosis, so the scientists investigated whether there might be a link between bone thinning and heart disease. They analyzed medical data from more than 12,000 women between the ages of 50 and 84 who had received a DXA scan to check for osteoporosis at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital between 2005 and 2014. Women with a history of heart disease or serious illness were excluded.RELATED: 5 Ways to Prevent Dementia, Says Dr. Sanjay GuptaOsteoporosis linked to 79% higher risk of heart problemsThe study participants were followed for an average of nine years. During that time, about 4% had a heart attack or stroke, and 2% died. The researchers found that thinning bones—defined as a low bone-mineral-density score at the lumbar spine, femoral neck, and hip—were associated with 16% to 38% higher risk of heart attack or stroke, after accounting for other factors like age, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, and previous broken bones. And being diagnosed with osteoporosis was associated with a 79% higher risk of cardiovascular disease.The researchers warned that the study was observational, so it can only show a correlation, not prove causation. It also involved patients at one specific medical center, so the findings may not be applicable to the larger population. But, the scientists said, that commonly used bone scan may give women and doctors another potential tool to assess their risk of heart disease."Considering that [DXA scanning] is widely used to screen for osteopenia and osteoporosis in asymptomatic women, the significant association between [bone mineral density] and higher risk of [cardiovascular disease] provides an opportunity for large-scale risk assessment in women without additional cost and radiation exposure," they wrote.RELATED: The #1 Cause of Heart Attack, According to ScienceWhat is osteoporosis?Osteoporosis is much more common in women than men: Experts estimate that 10 million Americans have osteoporosis, and 80% are women. Nearly half of women over 50 will break a bone because of osteoporosis. When women reach menopause, estrogen levels decline sharply, which can lead to bone loss. According to the Mayo Clinic, symptoms of osteoporosis include back pain, loss of height, stooped posture, or a bone that breaks more easily than expected.You can support your bone health by getting adequate levels of calcium and vitamin D, and by engaging in regular bone-strengthening, weight-bearing exercises like walking, Zumba, or jumping rope, says Harvard Medical School. Talk with your doctor if you're concerned about your bone or heart health or want to know if additional screening is right for you.

Watch out for signs someone you love has dementia—they can creep up on you. What may seem like regular old age at first—who hasn't forgotten where they misplaced their phone—can snowball quickly into the signals of a brain in trouble. Read on for 6 key signifiers that someone you love has dementia, according to science—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Caught COVID and Maybe Didn't Know It. 1 They Might Have Short-Term Memory Problems Dementia damages part of the brain tasked with storing memories. With dementia, the memory problems will become more persistent. Signs someone you love has dementia can include them not being able to create new memories ("I didn't go to the beach with you yesterday, what are you talking about?"), taking longer to retrieve information ("Pass me the….um….pass me the…the….the…stapler") or not being able to retrieve information at all ("That's my grandson? He's beautiful…what's his name?") 2 They Might Have Trouble With Complex Tasks Dementia makes things one does everyday more difficult. They will need reminders about the process of things you'd think anyone would know, like, for example, when and how to take their medication, how to follow a recipe with multiple instructions and ingredients, or how to maintain good hygiene. 3 They Might Get Lost Those who have dementia can get lost on their way back from somewhere—or wander off with no ability to return home. Every day in the news, someone with dementia strays away from where they belong, unable to find their way back; some states even have a "Silver Alert" for such cases, in which they put out a description so the person can be found. 4 They Might Do This While Driving Doctors may be able to test older people for early signs of dementia based on their driving patterns, a new study suggests. The researchers, from the long-term study LongROAD (Longitudinal Research on Aging Drivers), found that age was the number one risk factor for MCI or dementia, but a number of driving patterns were close behind. They included the percentage of trips traveled within 15 miles of home, the length of trips that started at home, minutes per trip, and the number of hard braking events with fast deceleration rates. Driving behavior alone could predict MCI or dementia with 66 percent accuracy. 5 They Might Forget to Pay Bills Spending money on purchases you don't remember is one early sign of dementia, but so is not spending money—as in, completely forgetting about your monthly bills. These routine tent poles every week serve as markers those with total cognitive function should be able to remember. What's worse, as the disease progresses, sufferers may hide their financial failings in order to maintain their independence.RELATED: 5 Ways to Prevent Dementia, Says Dr. Sanjay Gupta 6 They Might Have Personality Changes Anger, embarrassment, anxiety and depression are not uncommon among those with dementia. This can be partly because they are naturally frustrated with their situation, but also partly because their brain is losing cells, potentially in the frontal lobe, the area that controls aspects of our personality. The result can be decreased motivation, more passivity or a lack of impulse control, which can lead to rude outbursts. And to protect your health, don't miss these Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers.
Bollywood superstar, Salman Khan is in the headlines after his much-awaited film, Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai, directed by Prabhu Deva, released on the OTT platform, Zee5 on May 13, 2021, amid COVID-19. The anticipation for this film was towering since the day the first look of the film was released. The film is a remake of one of the best Korean films of all time, The Outlaws, released in 2017. However, after the release of Radhe's trailer, the audience was stunned and highly joyous to see their Sallu bhai saying that iconic dialogue from his film, Wanted, "Ek baar jo main ne commitment karli tau mein khud ki bhi nai sunta." Recommended Read: When Helen Said She Felt Guilty Of Marrying Salman Khan's Father, Salim Khan Because He Was Married The dialogue had raised the questions, whether Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is a sequel of Wanted or not. After a lot of debate and discussions on the internet, Salman Khan had come forward and had revealed during one of his media interactions that his upcoming film, Radhe isn't a sequel of Wanted, but if the audience likes Radhe, they'll surely come up with its sequel. Well, the first reviews of the film are pretty impressive, so without further ado, let's jump straight into the madness and craziness that Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai is creating. Story of Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai The drug business is at an all-time high in Mumbai, and the city's youth is badly falling prey to its menacing addiction. While on one side, Radhe (Salman Khan), who is a suspended cop, wants to uproot the whole drug mafia from Mumbai. On the other side, Rana (Randeep Hooda) is leaving no stone unturned to rule the city with his vicious methods. This results in a war between Radhe and Rana, who fear no one! Also Read: Salman Khan Was Offered Aishwarya Rai's Brother Role During Their Dating Days, Here's How He Reacted Cast of Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai The film stars Salman Khan and Disha Patani in leading roles. Randeep Hooda is playing the antagonist of the whole story, who is making sure he rules Mumbai city. Other than that, the film also has super-talented, Jackie Shroff, who portrays the character of Disha's brother. Other key actors in the film are Megha Akash, Gautam Gulati, and Sudhanshu Pandey. Don't Miss: Salman Khan Had Talked About Aishwarya And Abhishek Bachchan's Marriage In This Throwback Interview Review of Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai The film's plot is like an old wine wrapped under a glittering cover that is rich in action, high-voltage drama, thumping music, and an indestructible Salman bhai. The actor is portraying the character of a cop, who is an encounter specialist and has done 97 encounters in the last 10 years. After years of breaking bones and jaws, when Radhe was having some time off, another big problem arises in Mumbai and without a second thought, he makes a roaring comeback to bring down the drug racket in the city. While he was crushing his enemies, it was Diya (Disha Patani), who melts his heart, and their quirky love story in the middle of this action flick, is like a cup of warm tea during chilly winters. Also Read: Arjun Kapoor Revealed How Arpita Khan Had Dumped Him And His Bond With Salman In Throwback Interview There's no doubt that most of the things about Radhe's storyline are predictable, and the dialogues of the film are also way too clunky at times. But luckily, this time around, Prabhu Deva makes sure that his film doesn't fall into the category of cliches and instead, brings novelty to the viewers. Radhe provides relentless action, a strong villain like Rana (Randeep Hooda), and Salman Khan as Radhe in a never-seen-before bloodthirsty role in the film. There's no denying that the film's action is incredibly powerful, as it's completely raw, brutal, and not for the faint-hearted at times. The intense fight between Rana and Radhe is the point where you'll understand the hard work and excellence of South Korean stunt director, Myeong-haeng Heo, and action-director, Anbariv.

The actress is the film's eye-candy and adds glamour in the film with her stunning looks and fancy footwork on the dance floor. This is why Disha's fans will be a bit disappointed to see her character being unexplored in the film. Talking about the veteran actor, Jackie Shroff's character, Avinash Abhyankar (Diya's brother), the actor looked breathtakingly handsome throughout the film and has proved the mettle of his swaggy style once again. But the intensity for which Jaggu dada is known, wasn't in the film, even though he was ACP in the movie and Radhe's senior. The film's music has already created a significant noise on the internet, and the title track of the film, Dil De Diya (Sajid-Wajid), is the much-needed peppy song and will lighten your mood in this devastating COVID-19 time. Talking about the background score from Sanchit and Ankit Balhara, then it has created a much-needed impact during particular scenes in the film. Despite all the film's predictability, Prabhu Deva has succeeded in making the most out of Salman's star-power and masculinity. Also, it'll be fair to say that this Radhe is far more dangerous and spine-chilling than the one we have witnessed in Wanted in 2009. Don't Miss: Shashi Kapoor's Tragic Love Story: Once A Superstar, Who Went Into Depression After His Wife's Death So, if you're a fan of action and bloodbath, then there's enough ammo installed by Prabhu Deva in the film, and you'll not be disappointed. But with that, you should also have the patience and guts to digest the babyish dialogues, silly comedy, and some loud and undeveloped brawny is used to define a man not a film.
