    When it comes to health during the Super Bowl, the message often focuses on the amount of fat and calories we're putting in our bodies. However, the big game can also bring about other major health risks that people may not even think about.

    "I think the big take-home message is moderation," Balger told "Know your limits, don't overdo it."

    From Dr. Balger, here are some health risks you might face from the Super Bowl.
