Wellness Wednesday – Week 22

Best Friends Forever (BFF)!

Did you know that according in an article by N. Jamilyn Chisholm in the June issue of Real Simple magazine, friends share 1% of their DNA?  The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences published in its March 2014 issue that BFF is genetically akin to a fourth cousin!  Scientists discovered this biological bond after analyzing the genes of almost 2,000 people and compared the DNA of sets of friends and of strangers.  What they found was personalities that draw you together (BFF) may stem from the fact that you share small traces of genetics.

June 8 was Best Friends Day (BFD) and in honor of BFD our Wellness program is offering a walking challenge for BFF!  Look for the challenge later today in an email.
