What is an Aneurysm?
(http://ow.ly/zUZD30nl8RP)

When an artery in the brain becomes weakened, it can bulge or abnormally widen. This puts the aneurysm at risk for rupturing or bursting. This most commonly occurs in arteries located towards the front of the head that are responsible for supplying oxygen-rich blood to the brain tissue. The most common type of brain aneurysm is referred to as a berry aneurysm due to its appearance.

Risk Factors for Varicose Veins
(http://ow.ly/C87530nl8RH)

While varicose veins cannot completely be avoided, some risk factors could put you at higher risk for their development. If you have a family history of family members with varicose veins could mean that you are more likely to have them develop. Another risk factor is sedentary behavior, so be sure to move around often if you are used to sitting most of the day to get your blood moving.
