“It’s a scam!”
by West Conner
Those are the exact words the former drug salesman for Plavix said to me about the drug. We were talking in a group of people and the subject of taking an aspirin every day to prevent a stroke or heart attack came up.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
