Lose Weight, Use Less Gas
by West Conner
There was a study that just came out that says we, as Americans, are spending more money on gasoline for our vehicles because we weigh more. The study found that we weigh an average of 24 more pounds than we did in 1960. This equates to about one billion gallons of gas more per year, roughly $2.2 billion, than 46 years ago.

  • Oops, sorry about that
    by West Conner
    A new study shows that doctors, on average, interrupt a patient in the first 18 seconds to give their diagnosis. Another study shows that 15% to 20% of the time, the initial diagnosis is wrong. The doctor’s office of today is more of a factory; “treat ‘em and street ‘em” is the mantra. Doctors, and pharmacists, tend to stick with the first diagnosis and are hesitant to admit that they were wrong.

  • Orlistat goes OTC, underwear beware!
    by West Conner
    For the most part, everyone wants to be able to eat whatever they want, take a diet pill, and have the body of a model. A few years ago when Xenical came out, people thought this was the new miracle, a pill that blocks fat absorption. It works quite well also. But there is a drawback. People quickly learned where that fat goes when it is not absorbed. Yes, what goes in, must come out.

  • 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.

  • Now Is The Time To Learn Your Family’s Health History
    by West Conner
    During the holiday season is a great time for family get-togethers. It is this time where you can exchange your family’s health history with your relatives. Many common health conditions run in the family, like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer. Did you know if you’re a woman and your mother or sister has breast cancer, your risk for breast cancer is doubled? It goes up 500% if both mother and sister have the disease. If both of your parents have type II diabetes, your chances of getting it go up 50%.
