When it comes to sleep, like anything else in life, has been reported that moderation is key for good health and long life. Sleeping too little causes health problems, but did you know that sleeping too much can cause the same or more medicals problems such as diabetes and heart disease and is linked to weight gain, Parkinson’s and depression? Are you sleeping too much?
Researchers point out that the amount of sleep varies with age and that people that are stressed or sick will tend to sleep more. Other factors that cause over sleeping are those that have less access to health care... Read More
The sound of children playing in the playground, arguing, shouting, laughing, tells us that they are all having a good time chasing each other, climbing and hiding. All of a sudden all sound stops. Then, a loud scream shatters the silence. It takes five minutes before an adult reaches the scene to find a circle of children standing over a child lying on the ground, apparently unconscious. The children seem unsure what to do. Some are poking the child on the ground hoping for some response. There is none. Others are calling their parents on their cells. Someone suggests calling 911.

New York -- May 2, 2010 -- Sixty-five years ago today, officials added fluoride chemicals into Newburgh, NY's public water supply making residents guinea pigs in a failed experiment to discover whether fluoride could safely reduce tooth decay. It didn't. But political pressure declared it a success. Any high school biology student can find the flaws in this "study." Fluoride researchers are still using our bodies and tax dollars for their own benefit. Ten years later, 1955, researchers reported that newly fluoridated Newburgh children had more bone defects, anemia and earlier female menstruation... Read More
Fluoride chemicals added to public water supplies boosts lead absorption in lab animals’ bones, teeth and blood, report Sawan, et al. (Toxicology 2/2010). Earlier studies already show children’s blood-lead-levels are higher in fluoridated communities, reports Sawan’s research team.
“…exposure to increased amounts of lead and fluoride occurs at about the same age (1-3 years)… Therefore, this is a critical time when systemic exposure to fluoride should be minimized since fluoride may increase lead accumulation,” the researchers caution. Fluoride purchased from China and used in Frostburg,... Read More
In the wake of the passing of the Health Care Reform bill, an interesting question can be raised: do you know how to find health information that is reliable?
Probably not, because if you, as a non-healthcare professional, have ever tried to go into a library for personal research, you most likely have been denied.
About 20 some odd years ago, I remember being able to go to a library at a Kaiser Permanent facility with my parents. I got to watch videos about the human body and read books. Nowadays, that access is rarely available to the general public.
Now, there is a public... Read More
Perhaps you've seen it, driving on the California interstate 134, or buses. The advertisement reads "Triumph over Cancer."
That is the theme of the Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, as it sets to open it's doors of it newest building, The Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center on February 8, 2010.
The Center is dedicated to healing the body, the mind and the spirit. This has been years in the making. This was a dream of several doctors to have a one stop treatment center for cancer patients and their families. The $36 million, four-story outpatient Center will be home... Read More
There is clear evidence that small amounts of fluoride, at or near levels added to U.S. water supplies, present potential risks to the thyroid gland, according to the 2006 National Research Council's (NRC) first-ever published review of the fluoride/thyroid literature: Fluoride in Drinking Water: A Scientific Review of EPA's Standards.
Fluoride, in the form of silicofluorides, is injected into 70% of U.S. public water supplies, ostensibly to reduce tooth decay, but was never safety-tested. "Many Americans are exposed to fluoride in the ranges associated with thyroid effects, especially... Read More
