New treatment works like 'liquid Drano for arteries'
Topic: Health and Wellness 11:38 am EST, Nov  5, 2003

] Intravenous doses of a synthetic component of "good"
] cholesterol reduced artery disease in just six weeks in a
] small study with startlingly big implications for
] treating the nation's No. 1 killer.
] "The concept is sort of liquid Drano for the coronary
] arteries," said Dr. Steven Nissen, a Cleveland Clinic
] cardiologist who led the study.
] Larger and longer studies need to be done to determine if
] the experimental treatment will translate into fewer
] deaths, but the early results are promising, said Dr.
] Daniel Rader, director of preventive cardiology at the
] University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
] The treatment used a laboratory-produced version of an
] unusually effective form of HDL, the good cholesterol
] that helps protect against heart disease by removing
] plaque, or fatty buildups, from the bloodstream.
] "This is clearly on the level of a breakthrough that will
] have far-reaching implications," pointing the way toward
] a rapid treatment for fatty buildups, said Dr. Bryan
] Brewer, chief of molecular diseases at the National
] Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.

American Social Hygiene Posters, ca. 1910-1970
Topic: Health and Wellness 8:26 am EDT, Oct 20, 2003

From the Scout Report: This fascinating collection of social hygiene posters (designed to inculcate certain social practices regarding hygiene, friendship, prostitution, and mental health) is culled from the fine holdings of the Social Welfare History Archives at the University of Minnesota Libraries.

There are some gems to be found here, and the collection is easily browsed. Consider "Beware of Chance Acquaintances" and "Danger in Familiarities".

UK plans to enstate compulsory drugging for ADHD
Topic: Health and Wellness 5:13 pm EDT, Sep 28, 2002

"Parents of children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) will face jail under proposals in the new Mental Health Bill if they refuse to drug their children, a psychiatrist has warned."

This is one of the most fucked up things I've ever heard. "If the children won't behave we'll drug them whether their parents like it or not!"

FDA OKs West Nile therapy trial
Topic: Health and Wellness 6:54 pm EDT, Aug 21, 2002

The Food and Drug Administration has approved the first national trial of a drug to treat West Nile virus, which is quickly spreading west and has infected more than 250 people in a dozen states.
Sold by Schering-Plough as Intron A, the drug is a hepatitis treatment which has been shown by lab tests to be effective against West Nile virus.
West Nile first appeared in the United States in 1999, when seven people infected with it in New York died. Nationwide, the CDC has reported 12 U.S. deaths this year from West Nile, eight of them in Louisiana. As of Tuesday, 253 human cases of the virus had been reported to the CDC this year in 11 states and the District of Columbia.

Cracking the hackers' code -
Topic: Health and Wellness 1:44 pm EDT, Aug 21, 2002

"The Cambridge study suggests a "continuum" of disability, "with AS as the bridge between autism and normality". Res may represent a point on the spectrum between AS and obsessive - a place other top hackers might also occupy."

This is an odd article. Why computer hacking may be a symptom of mental illness... I'm skeptical of this sort of thing. Psychologists recently have wanted to define any unpopular behavioral pattern as "abnormal" and further tag it as a disease. ADD is the classic example. Seems like everybody's kid has ADD. I wonder how often "my kid has ADD" means "my kid doesn't do what I say so I've put him on drugs." There is a great difference between this sort thing and a serious mental illness which prevents someone from living life, and I don't think its appropriate to blur the lines. Start by asking yourself if you think the behavior is a problem because it makes YOU unhappy or because it makes life difficult for the person who exhibits it.

"Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen -- one of the first scientists to identify the causes of the hole in the ozone layer and also involved in the U.N. report -- said up to two million people in India alone were dying each year from atmospheric pollution. "

This thing is a popular topic in Canada right now. Industrializing nations typically have very poor air quality, which improves as their technology gets better... - 'Asian Brown Cloud' poses global threat - August 12, 2002
