Lizard Spit and Weight Loss
by West Conner
In the southwestern United States lives a unique animal called the Gila monster. What is so unique about this lizard-like creature is the fact that it only eats three times a year. Why does it only get hungry every four months? Scientists, in the never-ending search for new medications, began to study the Gila monster. What they have come up with is truly remarkable.

  • Tylenol causes asthma?
    by West Conner
    Some medical scientists are saying that taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) can increase the risk of asthma. The reason is that acetaminophen lowers the body’s level of something called glutathione. Glutathione has a protective effect on the lungs and people with asthma have lower glutathione levels than healthy people. Contradicting this, the body produces glutathione much faster than acetaminophen can reduce it. Also, those who are allergic to aspirin have about a 30% chance of getting a short, asthma-like condition called bronchospasm if they take 1000mg or more of acetaminophen. I wouldn’t concern myself too much unless you are allergic to acetaminophen, then do not take more than 1000mg in one dose. There is definitely not enough proof to say whether or not acetaminophen has any role in asthma. Experts say acetaminophen is still, overall, the safest medication for mild to moderate pain.

  • Float your inhaler?
    by West Conner
    Many doctors, nurses, and even some pharmacists have told patients that if their asthma inhaler floats, it is empty. This is not a good idea. Floating an inhaler is not accurate and you will get different results whether the valve stem is up or down. The newer inhalers with the HFA propellant will float when completely full.

  • Another generic; another dirty trick
    by West Conner
    Another antihistamine is now available in generic, potentially saving you money at the pharmacy counter. Zyrtec had $1.2 billion in sales in 2006, the latest figure available. Whenever a patent expires and the generic becomes available, the manufacturer loses virtually 100% of sales.
