The Food Issue - An Open Letter to the Next Farmer in Chief - Michael Pollan -
Topic: Health and Wellness 9:42 pm EST, Nov  7, 2008

Our agenda puts the interests of America’s farmers, families and communities ahead of the fast-food industry’s. For that industry and its apologists to imply that it is somehow more “populist” or egalitarian to hand our food dollars to Burger King or General Mills than to support a struggling local farmer is absurd. Yes, sun food costs more, but the reasons why it does only undercut the charge of elitism: cheap food is only cheap because of government handouts and regulatory indulgence (both of which we will end), not to mention the exploitation of workers, animals and the environment on which its putative “economies” depend. Cheap food is food dishonestly priced — it is in fact unconscionably expensive.

Gold star.

What Pilots Can Teach Hospitals About Patient Safety - New York Times
Topic: Health and Wellness 7:31 pm EST, Oct 31, 2006

A growing number of health care providers are trying to learn from aviation accidents and, more specifically, from what the airlines have done to prevent them. In the last five years, several major hospitals have hired professional pilots to train their critical-care staff members on how to apply aviation safety principles to their work.

Topic: Health and Wellness 4:00 pm EDT, Aug 21, 2006

A new chewing gum containing good bacteria which prevent harmful bacteria from destroying our teeth has been developed by scientists working for BASF GmbH and OrganoBalance GmbH. There is also a good chance good bacteria could be added to deodorants to eliminate BO (body odour).

Heavy Coffee Drinking Doesn't Hurt the Heart
Topic: Health and Wellness 7:57 pm EDT, Apr 24, 2006

Data on more than 120,000 participants in two U.S. studies that followed people for as long as two decades found no link between heart disease and a daily intake of six or more cups of coffee. In fact, the risk was the same as for people who had less than one cup of coffee or tea a month.

Nemo Beware: Fish Tank Can Be a Haven for Salmonella
Topic: Health and Wellness 2:30 pm EDT, Apr 18, 2006

But recent findings from Australia confirm that fish owners should nonetheless take care when cleaning an aquarium or otherwise interacting with finned friends or the water they swim in.

Researchers reported in the March issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases on cases of bacterial infections serious enough to send some children to the hospital with high fever and bloody diarrhea. The infections stemmed from a multidrug-resistant strain of Salmonella paratyphi B that was traced via DNA analysis to fish tanks in the patients' homes.

Is it just me or does expecting kids with ADHD to not peel it off within 5 minutes seem a little optimistic?

FDA Knocks Cell Phone-Brain Tumor Study
Topic: Health and Wellness 5:28 pm EDT, Apr  7, 2006

Federal health officials on Thursday dismissed a recent study suggesting a link between long-term use of cellular and cordless telephones and brain tumors but said they will continue to monitor the safety of the wireless devices.

People have been trying to establish a link between various types of EMR and cancer for decades but so far, the connection has been tenuous at best. It probably doesn't help that some of the most outspoken proponents of the theory are "fluoridation of drinking water is a communist conspiracy"-level crazies.

Bill Strikes at Low-Nutrition Foods in School
Topic: Health and Wellness 5:09 pm EDT, Apr  6, 2006

The days when children consume two orders of French fries in the school cafeteria and call it lunch may be numbered. A bipartisan group in Congress plans to introduce legislation today that would prohibit the sale in school not only of French fries but also of other fatty or sugary foods, including soft drinks.

On Her Last Legs
Topic: Health and Wellness 1:12 pm EST, Feb 26, 2006

"Well, I can't walk." The patient casually combed her fingers through her long brown hair as she recounted the story to the young doctors in training who surrounded the bed. "Yesterday, I tried to get out of bed and just couldn't. It hurt so much I had to sit back down. That's when I ended up here." The patient, a slender, soft-spoken woman who appeared younger than her 52 years, had dark circles under her tired eyes. Despite her offhand manner, Dr. Jennifer Quinn, a resident in her last year of training, thought the patient's pale complexion and exhausted appearance suggested a longstanding illness.
