one-method lethal injection

good morning. its freezing so im going to keep this short.. because well my fingers are freezing. when i say short i mean on my part not the article. basically today i found an article about the use of a one-method lethal injection as apposed to the three sets of cocktails used before.

LUCASVILLE, Ohio — Ohio executed a killer Tuesday by performing the nation's first lethal injection using a single drug, a supposedly less painful method than previous executions that required three drugs.

Kenneth Biros was pronounced dead at 11:47 a.m. Tuesday, about 10 minutes after one dose of thiopental sodium began flowing into his veins at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville. The U.S. Supreme Court had rejected his final appeal about two hours before.

Experts predicted the thiopental sodium would take longer to kill the 51-year-old Biros than the convention three-drug cocktail, but the 10 minutes it apparently took him to die was about the usual length of time even under the method previously used by Ohio and still used by most other death penalty states.

The mother, sister and brother of Biros' victim, Tami Engstrom, applauded as the warden announced the time of death.

"Rock on," Debi Heiss, Tami's sister, said a moment earlier as the curtains were drawn for the coroner to check on Biros. "That was too easy."

The execution team tried for several minutes to find usable veins, including inserting needles several times in both arms, before eventually completing the process on just his left arm after about 30 minutes.

After the chemical started flowing at 11:37 a.m., Biros' chest heaved up and down several times, and he moved his head a couple of times over about two minutes before his body stopped moving.

Prisons director Terry Collins said the team took as much time as needed and he considered the process problem-free.

Ohio overhauled its procedure after a failed attempt to execute Romell Broom, a procedure halted by Gov. Ted Strickland in September. Executioners tried for two hours to find a suitable vein for injection, hitting bone and muscle in as many as 18 needle sticks that Broom, 53, said were very painful.

A hearing begins in federal court Wednesday on Broom's attempt to stop the state from trying again.

The state had two goals in changing its process. Switching to one drug was meant to end a 5-year-old lawsuit that claims Ohio's three-drug system was capable of causing severe pain. Injection experts and defense attorneys agreed a single dose of sodium thiopental would not cause pain.

A backup procedure allowing a two-drug muscle injection was created in case a situation like Broom's execution happened again.

States are watching Ohio's change, but none have made a similar switch. Florida, Kentucky, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia are among those saying they will keep the three-drug method.

It was the second trip to Lucasville for Biros, who spent more than 30 hours in the holding cell in March 2007 before the U.S. Supreme Court stopped his execution and allowed him to make his own challenge to the three-drug method.

U.S. District Judge Gregory Frost refused Monday to delay the execution, and Biros' appeal was rejected later that night.

Biros argued that the state had failed to fix the problems that led to the unsuccessful execution attempt in September. He said the state still relies on unqualified executioners and lacks limits on how long they are allowed to try to find a vein.

In asking Frost for a stay, Biros had argued that the new execution method still left vein access issues unresolved, subjecting him to the risk of severe pain, and had described the new one-drug approach as "impermissible human experimentation." The judge, in his ruling, called the arguments "unpersuasive."

Frost did say Ohio's execution system still has flaws that "raise profound concerns and present unnecessary risks." He also said he was concerned about the competency of Ohio's executioners and how much they appeared able to deviate from the state's written execution rules.

All 36 death penalty states use lethal injection, and 35 rely on the three-drug method. Nebraska, which recently adopted injection over electrocution, has proposed the three-drug method but hasn't finalized the process.

Biros killed the 22-year-old Engstrom near Warren in 1991 after offering to drive her home from a bar, then scattered her body parts in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Before dying Tuesday, he apologized for his crime and thanked his friends and relatives for supporting him.

"I'm being paroled to my father in heaven," Biros said. "I will now spend all of my holidays with my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ."

NYC boy missing for 11 days lived in subways

good morning bloggers!
its thanksgiving week. my all time favorite holiday. endless amounts of eating not to mention the pumpkin pie and stuffing yum! anyways browsing the google news as use i found this article about a missing boy who lived in the subways for 11 days. feel free to read on.. happy holidays!


NEW YORK — The mother of a 13-year-old boy with Asperger's syndrome who was missing in New York City for 11 days says her son spent the entire time in the subway system.

The boy's mother, Marisela Garcia, feels police were slow to make the case a priority because she's a Mexican immigrant. But police say they contacted the school immediately and leafleted most of the city.

Garcia wants to know how her son went unnoticed for so long despite surveillance cameras and a police search. He has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism.

Police found Francisco Hernandez Jr. on Oct. 26 in a Coney Island subway station. He says he took refuge in the subway after getting in trouble at school and feared a scolding at home.

He rode trains and used station bathrooms. He says he mostly slept and lived on snacks and water.

America's Health Rankings puts Wisconsin at No. 12

America's Health Rankings puts Wisconsin at No. 12
By Kathleen Gallagher of the Journal Sentinel

Posted: Nov. 17, 2009 11:54 a.m.

Wisconsinites are smoking less, but they're a lot fatter than they were 20 years ago, according to a report released Tuesday.

"America's Health Rankings" puts Wisconsin at 12th in the nation, up from 17th in 2008 in terms of the health of its residents, said the report, which is released annually by United Health Foundation, the American Public Health Association and Partnership for Prevention.

The state ranked dead last - 50th - for binge drinking and per capita public health funding, which is $35 a person, the report said. Wisconsin also needs to improve its obesity level, which has increased by 24% in the last five years, it said.

There's been a 25% decline in smoking to 19.8% of the population from 26.3% in 1990, the report said. But there's been a 130% increase in obesity to 26% of the population, up from 11.3% in 1990, it said.

Smoking and obesity are limiting improvements in health outcomes across the nation, the report's authors said. They have been producing the report for 20 years using a methodology developed and annually reviewed by a scientific advisory committee.

Basketball great Abdul-Jabbar has cancer


I don't really know much about the man expect that he was an NBA star. Either way cancer is something the everyone will go through on way or another..maybe someone close to you had it or is currently going through it. Here's and article i found on CNN.com on the subject.

NEW YORK (CNN) -- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, one of the greatest college and professional basketball players of all time, says he has been diagnosed with a form of blood cancer.

"I have chronic myeloid leukemia," Abdul-Jabbar told CNN. He said he received the diagnosis last December.

The 62-year-old former center for the Los Angeles Lakers said aside from having to see his doctor and checking his blood levels on a regular basis, having chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) hasn't significantly affected his quality of life.

Abdul-Jabbar said he's going public now to educate people about this disease.

"I think it's possible for someone in my position to help save lives," he said.

Abdul-Jabbar is best known as the 7-foot-2 center who led the UCLA Bruins to three NCAA championships in the 1960s, then went on to win one NBA championship with the Milwaukee Bucks in 1971 and five more with the Los Angeles Lakers before retiring in 1989.

He also has dabbled in acting, notably as an airline pilot in the 1980 comedy "Airplane!"

However, raising awareness about cancer has been part of his portfolio for some time now, too.

He said cancer has been prominent in his life.

"My grandfather died from colorectal cancer, my uncle died from colorectal cancer and my father almost died from colorectal cancer," Abdul-Jabbar said.

He added that he has the gene for colorectal cancer. This led him to get involved in a colorectal cancer awareness campaign in the African-American community. He's also participated in an NBA-sponsored prostate cancer awareness campaign.

But now he's a cancer patient himself. He said he first realized something was wrong when he began having hot flashes and sweats, something he admits wasn't normal, "even for someone my age."

After seeing his physician, blood work showed he had a "white blood cell count that was sky-high." The National Cancer Institute describes CML as a "slowly progressing disease in which too many white blood cells are made in the bone marrow."

Abdul-Jabbar said when he received the diagnosis of early stage CML, he wanted to know what was possible in terms of treatment.

He said his specialist told him the cancer diagnosis did not have to be a death sentence, as long as he followed a proper treatment regimen.

Abdul-Jabbar wouldn't reveal what his prognosis is, but he did say he is managing his disease and that having CML "doesn't impact my life too significantly."

In the process of researching CML, Abdul-Jabbar says he was shocked to learn that some cancer patients do not regularly take their cancer medication. This led him to approach the pharmaceutical company Novartis about launching an educational campaign.

Abdul-Jabbar said Novartis is paying him for his travel and time, but the idea for the campaign was his.

"The message is simple: You have to have the expert advice of a specialist. You have to take your medicine and get your blood analyzed," he said.

In an effort to provide more information about this type of cancer, he is launching a Facebook page -- Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Patient Advocate -- supported by the pharmaceutical company, which manufactures drugs to treat this and other types of cancer.

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), the average person's chance of getting CML is less than 1 in 500. The cancer society says CML is slightly more common in men than women, and it accounts for 10 percent to 15 percent of all leukemias or blood cancers.

The ACS estimates just over 5,000 people will be diagnosed with CML this year, and that 470 will die from it. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society estimates the five-year survival rate for CML of 44.4 percent.

EMERGEN-C


I don't know about you guys but, it seems to me that everyone seems to be sick these days. In fact about 3 of my friends were sick last week including myself.

Personally i cannot stand be sick.. its terrible, you cant taste food you cant breath well, your nose is constantly runny, and not to mention no energy at all to do all your daily duties.

While i was sick my friend told me about "EMERGEN-C" apparently you can get at target, cvs, vons, basically anywhere they sell cold medication.

how it works: its basically just a BIG dose of vitamin C which helps boost the immmune system, and make it easier for your body to fight off the virus.

i didn't get a chance to try it while i was sick but i think the next time i start to notice a few symptoms im going to run to a nearby store and pick up some up!

Flue shots :/


flu seasons is here, in case you haven't already noticed. It terrible, i cannot stand being sick and over the last two weeks or so I've had little symptoms here and there. i will admit last weekend was the worst i was all congested and my voice was all raspy and what not.

anyways let me get back to my point, i see signs in all the grocery stores about flu vaccinations, and i have to admit i don't think I've ever gotten one flu shot in my entire life.

which makes me question.. do we really need it??
i read this article on google news and it was explain the importance of the vaccination, especially in pregnant women.

"Oct. 27, 2009 -- A new survey shows only about one in four pregnant women and mothers of young children plan to get the H1N1 flu vaccine this year, despite recommendations from public health groups urging them to do so.

The CDC, American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and many other public health organizations strongly recommend that pregnant women and new mothers get both the seasonal and H1N1 flu vaccine shots to protect themselves as well as their newborns.

The survey shows 43% of pregnant women and mothers of children younger than 2 years old plan to get a seasonal flu shot this year, up from 33% surveyed last year. But only 27% plan on getting the H1N1 flu vaccine."

south beach diet.


Looking for a diet that i know will give me results.I was recommended a few diets but for some reason the south beach diet was the only one that stood out to me. I cant really tell you why , but my guess is because its the most talked about diet.
i googled it to fine there are some phases i didn't post.. but if your curious like i am.. here is some more insight information about how the diet works.


"Most people are sick of trying new diets for one reason – they do not work! What makes the South Beach Diet different is that it teaches a way of life where you rely on the right carbohydrates and fats. This new way of eating allows you to live contently without eating the bad carbohydrates and fats. In contrast, when a person eats bad carbohydrates and fats they feel hungrier, causing them to eat more, which causes weight gain. In exchange for eating right, you become healthier and can enjoy an 8 to 13 pound weight loss in just two weeks!

The Diet was created by Dr. Arthur Agatston, a highly respected cardiologist, to work with your body safely and effectively. This diet works in phases, the first two for a specific timeframe and the third phase for life. With this new approach, you can stop counting calories, stop weighing food portions, and stop feeling as though you are deprived from eating good-tasting and satisfying food! Actually, you will be eating three, normal-size meals but wait, that not all! You will also get two snacks each day and with meal plans that are designed to be flexible, you can enjoy a variety, based on what sounds good to you on any particular day.

Best of all, you will see amazing results in a short amount of time. Your hips, thighs, and stomach will be thinner, the number on the scales will go down, and all those overwhelming food cravings will be gone! Just imagine losing weight while still enjoying many of your favorite foods. With the diet, you can dine on mouth-watering foods like Chicken en Papillote, Shrimp Louis, and even Chocolate Sponge Cake and still lose the weight! "

Breast Cancer Awareness For Men And Women.


October is Breast cabcer aware month. we all know good well that women are at a great risk of getting breast cancer, espeically if they have history of breast cancer in there family.. but men are also at risk. although ther risk for men are alot less likey to happen dont completely rule it out.

Radiologist Deborah Day says.
Surgeon Daniel Dunn believes men with a breast lump should always assume it is cancerous, until proven otherwise, because men share women's breast cancer risk.

"In the United States last year, about 180,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer and about 2,000 men," Dunn says.

Most of the time men's treatment is a mastectomy. That is what happened to Baker. Then he spent the next five months in chemotherapy.

"I was still in chemo, and found out men couldn't run," Baker says.

So Baker pushed to have the rules changed. To this day he is the only man running in the Alaska Run for Women, proudly wearing pink.

"I'm surprised there's no pink ribbon on this lapel," Baker says. "I wear one 100 percent of the time. The pink ribbon's associated with breast cancer, and the blue ribbon's associated with prostate cancer. I don't see any sense in mixing the two."

Baker does not consider himself in remission, "I prefer to think I'm cured, but pick anything you like."

Baker admits he is rare, "I want other people to know. Most men say nothing about it. They're embarrassed to have what essentially as I say has been essentially labeled a female disease."

That is why bear Baker continues to fight, urging men to be their own advocates. Because if he had not been his own, Baker believes he might not be here to fight for others.

"Be persistent," Baker says. "Realize it's your body and if there's a change by gosh go find out why."

"Cosmetic Surgery Appeals To Men, Women With Appearance-based Rejection Sensitivity"


"Researchers have found that men and women who feel sensitive to rejection based on their physical appearance are more likely to express interest in having cosmetic surgery than those who are less sensitive to appearance-based rejection. This effect is particularly true when people recall negative comments about their physical appearance." <----well duh! This was all common sense before. It's not like somebody who is confident will committ to doing plastic surgery. If they were confident in the first place, they didn't think that they would need to have cosmetic surgery. Like I honestly think those who get cosmetic surgery are most likely going to be more vulnerable in the future.. maybe they will never be satisfied? It's just not right to alternate what God gave you :/ Like foreal, how unnatureal can you get? That's so weird! =( I guess if that makes them happy, but this plastic barbie was already pretty to begin with.

Could Salmonella Bacteria Kill Tumors?


I was always told by my Mother that Salmonella is bad for you. Leaving food out can cause this. But I found this article that has a theory that salmonella bacteria kills tumors. I think that's awesome. Turning a negative into a postivie. Salmonella is regarded as a bad guy. Hardly a summer passes without reports of severe salmonella infections via raw egg dishes or chicken. But salmonella may not only harm us -- in the future, it may even help to defend us against cancer. Researchers may soon have a way to make the bacteria migrate into solid tumors in order to make it easier to destroy them. Furthermore, in laboratory mice, the bacteria independently find their way into metastases, where they can also aid clearance of the cancer. I think that's great! (= yay for salmonella. haha The phenomenon of bacteria attacking tumors has been known to scientists for a long time. However, a cancer therapy with potential pathogens has been unthinkable before now. The risk of the patient dying due to an infection was too high.

Cardiac Surgeons Implant World's First New DeBakey Heart Assist Device

I think that this is awesome. This is a great way to know that technology is up and running! I wonder how it would feel like to have a DeBakey Heart Assist Device. I think that this is crazy to have. Anything to save the heart! The device augments the pumping function of the left ventricle in an especially effective, gentle and quiet manner. The pump weighs 92 grams and is made of titanium and plastic. It pumps blood from the weakened or failed left ventricle into the aorta. Isn't that awesome? “Following the 3.5 hour surgery, the patient is doing fine,” reports Professor Karck. The 50-year-old woman suffered from heart failure that could not be effectively treated with medication. Since a heart transplant was not an option due to medical reasons, the implanted heart pump will now assist her heart. Patients can now live a normal life!

Children Need Sleep


Of course we already know who needs more sleep and that's children. Children need more sleep than ever about eight hours a day. If a child does not have enough sleep, then they may have prenatal origins. What does this mean? This means that when a child does not get enough sleep they become associated with obesity, depressive symptoms, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and poor neurobehavioral functioning. I think that this is true because my boyfriend's little brother does not sleep until late. Probably til 2 in the morning, no one gives him that authority that is needed at his age. I think that it's very important that every child gets their rest because it will end up biting them in the ass later on in the future. Results demonstrate that among children born healthy and at full-term, a linear relationship exists between smaller body size at birth and poorer sleep quality eight years from birth.

Expectant Mothers ..Exercise!


So, I think that it's very obvious what expecting mother's should do. That is to exercise! I know not like like lifting weights, but the calm aerobics or even yoga will help you and your baby's health. Physicians should recommend low to moderate levels of exercise to their pregnant patients, even if they have not exercised prior to pregnancy. According to this review article, exercise can strengthen and improve overall musculoskeletal and physiologic health as well as pregnancy related symptoms. Exercise such as aerobics, impact and nonimpact activities, resistance training and swimming: •eases back and other musculoskeletal pain;
•lowers maternal blood pressure;
•reduces swelling; and
•improves post-partum mood, including sadness.
How awesome is that? I now know in the future, to not be a lazy butt while I'm pregnant just because I feel fat. haha I think this is awesome and exercising helps mothers in a lot of ways.

Children..Enjoy Peanuts!

I found yet another great article on ScienceDaily (I feel like I'm promoting for them sometimes) because I love their articles. I found one about how Children could receive a treatment to avoid their allergy to peanuts (long term)In my past experience, I think peanuts are what most people are allergic to? Am I wrong? It's a usual thing in my case of experience. haha A carefully administered daily dose of peanuts has been so successful as a therapy for peanut allergies that a select group of children is now off treatment and eating peanuts daily, report doctors at Duke University Medical Center and Arkansas Children's Hospital. Isn't that great? I don't think this is just for peanuts though, I think that they could unravel just about anything that somebody is allergic to. This procedure is not currently recommended for patients as it has not been fully tested, and it should never be attempted without full medical supervision. Tests of several immunologic indicators suggest the body builds tolerance quickly. What will scientists come up with next?!

Teens Headed in the Wrong Direction


I think all of us could see that teenagers are going in the wrong direction and not using contraceptives while having sex. I don't get how teenagers see it as some thing so casual? In my time (which wasn't too long ago), we all were aware of what's around us, what could happen if we don't protect ourselves. Any kind of contraceptives works, and it will reduce your chance of having any kind of STD, AIDS/HIV, etc. I read this article about how teenagers are going in the wrong path and should be schooled on sex and it's disadvantages. Between 2003 and 2007, the progress made in the 1990s and early 2000s in improving teen contraceptive use and reducing teen pregnancy and childbearing stalled, and may even have reversed among certain groups of teens, according to a new study. Between 1991 and 2003, teens' condom use increased while their use of no contraceptive method declined, leading to a decreased risk of pregnancy and to declines in teen pregnancy and childbearing. The new findings paint a very different picture since 2003.

Truth About Bottled Water


Okay, so I always had a habit of buying a pack or 2 of water bottles and leaving it in the back of my trunk. My mama always told me that it's bad to do that. Nope, I didn't listen. I thought it would come in handy if I ever needed water or if someone in the car needed water unexpectly. After reading this article about bottle water and how the heat can produce unwanted chemicals into the contents I now understand why. Gah, I've been doing this for about 2 years now. Should've listen to my mom when she told me so. "Pumpkin (yes she still calls me pumpkin even when I'm 20), it's bad for you to leave water in the high temperature you know that right?" Uh huh, yes mama. After reading this article I need to go home and hug my mom and tell her I should have listen!! No more leaving it in my trunk.
Turns out, when certain plastics are heated at a high temperature, chemicals from the plastics may leach into container’s contents. So there’s been a flurry of speculation recently as to whether the amounts of these chemicals are actually harmful, and whether this is even a concern when it comes to water bottles—which aren’t likely to be placed in boiling water or even a microwave. Small amounts of chemicals from PET water bottles such as antimony—a semi-metal that’s thought to be toxic in large doses—can accumulate the longer bottled water is stored in a hot environment. Which, of course, is probably a good reason to avoid storing bottled water in your garage for six months—or better yet, to just reach for tap instead.
I didn't even think drinking tap water would be better than drinking a brand new water bottle that's been sitting in the heat. From what my friend told me earlier, she said that not a lot of the water is really from tap. Some water bottles are actually tested clean (chemistry class). The reason why they are contaminated is because of the heat that caused the chemical to mix with the water. How could she not have told me this earlier? Oh wells, at least I learned my lesson now. No more leaving pack of water bottles in the car. No good, No good.

Benefits of being a Vegetarian

I always knew that being a vegetarian would be good in many ways. A person will always eat healthy! Unless they are eating a Mc Donalds Filet O Fish. haha some Vegans are hardcore and dont eat specific things to the core. But there are a lot good things that come with being a vegetarian! I found a great article about it. I hope this will convince some of you who are thinking of being vegetarian, to be one! Eventhough I don't have enough will power, I still think that some of you should consider it (=. It's a dramatic lifestyle, but also a healthy lifestyle. The American Dietetic Association has released an updated position paper on vegetarian diets that concludes such diets, if well-planned, are healthful and nutritious for adults, infants, children and adolescents and can help prevent and treat chronic diseases including heart disease, cancer, obesity and diabetes. I just wish that I had enough courage to come a vegan, but I'm too much of a meat lover to do so )=. So for those of you who are thinking about it, please feel free to look at the article where it inspired me to write this in my blog.

Genetic Markers To Help Fight Diabetes Discovered


I'm so glad that I found this article, since my family is known for being diagnosed with diabetes. This is a very relieving article to just find some facts about genetic markers helping out to fight diabetes. This will help diabetic patients because this treatment will have fewer side-effects. That is an amazing break through. "We identified genetic variants that may predict how well someone will respond to the common anti-diabetes drug, Actos," said Dr. DiStefano, Director of TGen’s Diabetes, Cardiovascular & Metabolic Diseases Division. "The implications of these findings include determining which patients will best respond to the drug for the prevention or treatment of diabetes. In addition, this work lays the foundation for personalized medicine for patients with this disease." -Science Daily. Of course,I hope that it works for most patients, because everyone is different. This treatment (along with millions of other kinds) may not work for everyone.

The War Against Aids


It's a sad era dealing with diseases that are uncurable. It hurts to think that Aids are spread easily, yet I don't know anyone personally on who has them? This is an amazing breakthrough for people who are diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. "A discovery by a team of Canadian and American researchers could provide new ways to fight HIV-AIDS. According to a new study published in Nature Medicine, HIV-AIDS could be treated through a combination of targeted chemotherapy and current Highly Active Retroviral (HAART) treatments. This radical new therapy would make it possible to destroy both the viruses circulating in the body as well as those playing hide-and-seek in immune system cells." After many long years, there is finally something that could take away the bad in a body? If we could take away AIDS, then we could accomplish anything. People could fulfill their lives the way its supposed to.

Stress Makes Your Hair Gray

Well this is an obvious sign. I knew that from the start. After reading this article, there seems to be more depth after it. I just believe that there anyone could prevent having gray hair if they would just chill out! Don't stress, and your chances of growing gray hair will become slim. Especially as you are growing older, you have a high chance that you will have gray hair when you are at a certain high level of stress. "Researchers have discovered that the kind of "genotoxic stress" that does damage to DNA depletes the melanocyte stem cells (MSCs) within hair follicles that are responsible for making those pigment-producing cells."

"Being A Night Owl In High School Is Linked With Lower College GPA" -Science Daily


Hold a minute! I don't think that this is true at all. I transitioned from high school, to community college, to a university. From high school and community college, I was an average morning student. My grades were... average. Didn't try very hard. At my University, I took night classes, cause I had work during the day. I'm actually receiving a 4.0 GPA right now. I don't think that scientists should be studying something and make a huge ordeal about it. Everyone is different. People don't have the choice of being in morning classes. People have kids, job, and other priorities to finish off until they have to go to class. I'm not saying my situation is like everyone elses, but everyone is different. "Students who consider themselves to be evening types (that is someone who feels more alert and does their best work later in the day) have poorer sleep hygiene scores than morning and intermediate types. Sleep hygiene is the group of behaviors linked to good sleep and alertness. Examples include having a regular bedtime routine, a regular wake time, a regular bed time, and sleeping in a comfortable bed" -Sleep 2009

Swine Flu


Does anyody think that the media is making the Swine flu bigger than it already is? I mean come on, not a lot of people died from it you know. Not yet actually. I mean , it is the beginning stage of the spreading virus. I think that the Swine Flu, can be very dangerous, yet the symptoms are a normal flu right? I am glad to see that scientists are making an effort to quickly develop a swine flu vaccine. Lord knows that we need to calm down people who are overreacting about the situation. I am worried about Mexico since that is where it originated from. "Scientists around the world are accelerating their efforts to develop a vaccine against the H1N1 influenza virus (Swine flu) as rapidly as possible, reports Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News (GEN). The need for such a vaccine received a strong impetus from the World Health Organization, which has issued a Phase 5 pandemic alert, a strong signal that the WHO believes a pandemic is imminent, according to the June 1 issue of Genetic Engineering" -Science Daily

Thank God for Aspirin


Who would have thought that aspiring cures more than just headaches? I just read an article about how aspiring actually prevents strokes. I think that's a very good key to being healthy and staying alive. On the other hand, while it cures half of the people, it could probably lose its benefits for the other half. I'm glad to know this little detail though, but it aspirin might due the opposite for anyone. Every person is different. So before taking it, you should always check with your doctor. Don't DO it, because you'll want to prevent a stroke from happening. ScienceDaily says: A new study has shown that, while taking aspirin is beneficial in preventing heart attacks and strokes among people with established cardiovascular disease (secondary prevention), its benefits don’t clearly outweigh the risks in healthy people (primary prevention)."

Vitamin D Deficiency Linked To Alzheimer's Disease And Vascular Dementia


So I thought that this was very interesting. I have always been taught to eat as much nutricious stuff when I was growing up. I read this article about how Alzheimer's Disease and Vascular Dementia are actually diagnosed to people who have low Vitamin D levels in their body. I think that this is a very important factor that everybody of all ages should consider listening. I advise you to get as much Vitamin D in your body, not just that, but Vitamin C,A, etc! It's all good for you and you know our bodies need it. If you don't believe me click the original article to read about it. here's what they had to say: "To date, the evidence includes observational studies supporting a beneficial role of vitamin D in reducing the risk of diseases linked to dementia such as vascular and metabolic diseases, as well as an understanding of the role of vitamin D in reducing the risk of several mechanisms that lead to dementia."

Cereal & Milk

Who would have thought that the most important meal of the day is more important than we think? I read about how cereal and milk are actually important factors when it comes to sports. Of course, I do not think that all cereals are considered healthy. I just read that grain cereal is really good for you and for people who play sports. I guess they're doing studies on what really is good for people who play sports, and how it benefits them. It's pretty much common sense if you really think about it. If you guys want to read the article, I'll have the link at the bottom of this post. Here is a little insight on what they wrote: A bowl of whole-grain cereal is as good as a sports drink for recovery after exercise. New research has shown that the readily available and relatively inexpensive breakfast food is as effective as popular, carbohydrate-based "sports drinks."

Gene Transfer Technology May Lead To HIV Vaccine

I thought that this was a great article for those who aren't affected by HIV. Although HIV/AIDs are fairly common and is spreading throughout the world, I don't know anyone personally who actually has it. Atleast, not that I know of actually. But once again, sciencedaily.com has informed us about it. A research team may have broken the stubborn impasse that has frustrated the invention of an effective HIV vaccine, by using an approach that bypasses the usual path followed by vaccine developers. By using gene transfer technology that produces molecules that block infection, the scientists protected monkeys from infection by a virus closely related to HIV—the simian immunodeficiency virus, or SIV—that causes AIDS in rhesus monkeys. So let's hope that this works, because we all know that we have been waiting for someone to protect us from this neverending disease.

Cigarette Smoke Can Prevent Allergies


I just can't believe this. I am very much an Anti-smoker, and I would never smoke cigarettes to prevent my allergies. This article I found from ScienceDaily.com is about this. And it very much shocked me, but I still can't believe that this sort of thing is possible. I thought that cigarette smoking can kill you. it can. I wouldn't risk my life for curing my allergies. That's ridiculous. Sciencedaily.com says, "A study of mouse mast cells shows that cigarette smoke can prevent allergies by decreasing the reaction of immune cells to allergens." Well in my opinion, that's the mouse. And we'll see how long that poor little mouse lives before the smoke kills its lungs.

Exercising Reduces Falls

I guess you could say that this is right. I mean it makes sense to me. My grandpa is in a convalscent home right now, and he is known for high risk falls. I just don't to think about it. It literally breaks my heart to see how he's getting weak. But I've been reading about how exercising reduces falls. WRONG, well in my grandpa's case that is. My grandpa was very active before he started getting weak. It's just the fact that when my grandmother died, he stopped doing the things he used to do, like build things with his own two hands. He would walk around a lot, now he stays in bed almost all day. Probably 23 hours of a 24 hour a day. It's that sad. I will always believe that he's my superman. (=

Weight Loss Competitions Produce Encouraging Results


I always thought that these kinds of competitions are very beneficial. Everyone's a loser. Specifically, they LOSE their weight. AND THAT'S WONDERFUL. (= I'm glad to see that American's are trying to lose weight. As we all know, that this country is the fattest of them all! How embarassing is that. But I learned it had to do with three main reasons: it's heredity, cultural, socioeconomical. That's what I learned in my psychology class at least. Rena Wing,professor of psychiatry and human behavior at the Waren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, and her colleagues came to their conclusions after evaluating Shape Up Rhode Island 2007, a statewide Internet-based weight loss competition conceived by Rajiv Kumar, a study co-author and a medical student at the Alpert Medical School.
“We evaluated the results and showed that this is an effective way to reach large numbers of people,” said Wing, the study’s lead author. Wing is director of the Weight Control and Diabetes Research Center at the Miriam Hospital.
Shape Up Rhode Island reduced the percentage of patients in the study who were obese from 39 percent to 31 percent. Researchers found that individuals who increased their activity the most achieved the best weight losses.

Caffeine Reduces Pain During Exercise


Who would have thought? In my case, I'd like to have thought that Caffeine would slow people down. But I guess not. I found this interesting article on sciencedaily.com (wonderful site I might add). I am starting to get fit now, I've been trying to exercise, so I am trying to be more aware of what I am taking in to my body or whatever. As a former competitive cyclist, University of Illinois kinesiology and community health professor Robert Motl routinely met his teammates at a coffee shop to fuel up on caffeine prior to hitting the pavement on long-distance training rides.
"The notion was that caffeine was helping us train harder … to push ourselves a little harder," he said.
The cyclists didn't know why it helped, they just knew it was effective.
"I think intuitively a lot of people are taking caffeine before a workout and they don't realize the actual benefit they're experiencing. That is, they're experiencing less pain during the workout," Motl said.
He said it's becoming increasingly common for athletes – before competing – to consume a variety of substances that include caffeine, motivated by "the notion that it will help you metabolize fat more readily."

Earth Still Recovering from a Glacial Hangover


I know I know this isn't really about vitamins! but not to worry I'll still suggest some vitamins down at the bottom of this post. I just thought that this was really interesting. A new explanation for the cause of changes in the chemical makeup of the oceans through recent Earth history is put forward in a paper published in Nature. Scientists from the Universities of Southampton and Bristol suggest that adjustments in ocean chemistry through recent geological time are driven by variations in the intensity of chemical breakdown of continental rocks by rain and ground water. These changes are, in turn, controlled by the profound changes in the Earth's climate, and in particular the Ice Ages, that have occurred over the past 2-3 million years.On very long timescales – longer than hundreds of thousands of years – the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere represents a balance between that emitted as volcanic gases versus that the amount taken up by chemical weathering. The conventional view of the long-term evolution of Earth's climate is that chemical weathering and CO2 act together to thermostatically regulate the Earth's surface temperature. If for some reason atmospheric CO2 increases, the resulting higher temperatures cause greater chemical weathering, which acts to reduce the CO2 concentration of the atmosphere.

ADHD


I am I took another class of psychology last semester. I have now differientated ADHD and Autism! It's quite interesting as the fact that Most people who are diagnosed with autism is male. What I am really concerned about is Tourette Syndrome, since I have not learned that in my class. "The most disabling aspect of Tourette syndrome is that in 90% of cases, it exists in conjunction with another disorder. The most frequent co-occurring condition in people with Tourette is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), though the cause of this association is uncertain. Having one disorder can be disabling enough, but having two means coping with more than twice the disability. New research published in the April 13 edition of the Journal of Developmental and Behavioural Pediatrics by University of Calgary and University of Toronto researchers looked at nearly 400 children with Tourette syndrome to try to understand the connection between these two disorders. Their findings show that while Tourette and ADHD have a major genetic component, there are potentially preventable perinatal factors that increase the risk of a co-occurring diagnosis of ADHD in children with Tourette."

"Too Much Or Too Little Sleep Increases Risk Of Diabetes"


I remember when I went to the ER last summer due to a siezure, and the ER doctor told me that I was Type 1 diabetic. I was very disturbed at the fact it might be true on the other hand, my family does have a line of diabetics, so my chances increased. I went to my regular physician the morning after and he falsly accused me. -_- What a way to wake someone up from a nightmare correct? Researchers at Universit√© Laval's Faculty of Medicine have found that people who sleep too much or not enough are at greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance. The risk is 2½ times higher for people who sleep less than 7 hours or more than 8 hours a night. The findings were published recently on the website of the journal Sleep Medicine. The researchers arrived at this conclusion after analyzing the life habits of 276 subjects over a 6-year period. They determined that over this timespan, approximately 20% of those with long and short sleep duration developed type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance versus only 7% among subjects who were average duration sleepers. Even after taking into account the effect attributable to differences in body mass among the subjects, the risk of diabetes and insulin resistance was still twice as high among those with longer and shorter sleep duration than average sleepers.

Pancreatic Cancer


I'm glad that I see people actually finding cures for different types of cancer! An herb recently found to kill pancreatic cancer cells also appears to inhibit development of pancreatic cancer as a result of its anti-inflammatory properties, according to researchers from the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson. The data were presented at the AACR 100th Annual Meeting 2009 in Denver. Inflammation has been implicated in the development of several solid tumor malignancies. Chronic pancreatitis, both hereditary and sporadic, is associated with the risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

"These are very exciting and novel results," Dr. Arafat said. "Not only patients with chronic pancreatitis could benefit from this, but also several other groups with risk of development or recurrence of pancreatic cancer, such as high-risk family members and post-surgical patients. These potent effects show promise for the herb as a potential preventive and therapeutic strategy for pancreatic cancer. More importantly, the herb and oil are safe when used moderately, and have been used for thousands of years without reported toxic effects."

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States, with approximately 32,000 deaths a year. Only five percent of individuals with pancreatic cancer live for at least one year after diagnosis.

"Studies Don't Support Common Treatments For Patchy Hair Loss"


Hmm I'm very interested in the fact that my own mother has lost a little patch of hair on the right side of her head. I'm frightened that it might be cancer. I don't want to lose her. I usually could find just about any article on science daily when it comes to certain sicknesses and such. The condition often causes patchy hair loss; meaning hair in some parts of the body falls out while remaining in others. In some cases, however, affected patients can lose all of their scalp hair or even all of their body hair.

Most affected people begin developing bald spots before the age of 20. Many cases of alopecia areata get better over time, although hair loss often returns.

Research suggests that alopecia areata is caused when the immune system attacks the hair follicle. Some cases are linked to physical or emotional stress, but others do not have an apparent trigger.

In the new review, Sladden and colleges examined 17 randomized controlled trials of treatments for alopecia areata.

The review appears in a recent issue of The Cochrane Library, a publication of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international organization that evaluates medical research. Systematic reviews like this one draw evidence-based conclusions about medical practice after considering both the content and quality of existing medical trials on a topic.

The studies, which looked at 540 patients, measured the effectiveness of several treatments, including topical and oral corticosteroids and topical cyclosporine. These drugs dampen the immune system to try to stop it from becoming confused and attacking the body.

Heart Diseases


My friend passed away this weekend from heart conditions and had a seizure. I'm so sad that this happened. First off, it's completely shocking. I just want to know how this crap happened in the first place. He was the nicest guy you could possibly meet. So I decided to do a little investigated on heart problems. I'm not sure what he had, but it just makes me feel more aware about what kind of things he went through. With all of these high tech gadgets, I thought anything could save him. I'm just really depressed. But as humans age, the percentage of new heart cells decreases markedly. By age 25, renewal of heart cells gradually decrease from 1 percent turning over annually to .45 percent by the age of 75. About 50 percent of the heart cells a human is born with will regenerate during a lifetime.

Myocardial damage often results in chronic heart failure because of the loss and insufficient regeneration of heart cells. But this new finding may mean that patients, who have suffered myocardial damage as a result of a heart attack, may have some good news.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientist Bruce Buchholz with colleagues from the Karolinska Institute, Université Claude Bernard Lyon, Lund University and Lund University Hospital, found that cells in a human heart can develop into adulthood and the age of heart cells is, on average, six years younger than the individual.

Condoms Don't Protect you From Aids


I was very shocked when I read this little article about condoms. I thought condoms were supposed to prevent you from aids or hiv. It's like nowadays you can't be to sure anymore. Maybe this is old news to some people, but for me, it's not. Is there another way where you CAN protect yourself from the troubles of stds or aids? Many leading health experts have warned against depending on condoms for protection against AIDS and other STDs. Here’s a sampling of their comments:

"You just can’t tell people it’s all right to do whatever you want as long as you wear a condom. It (AIDS) is just too dangerous a disease to say that."
Quote from: ¾ Dr. Harold Jaffee, chief of epidemiology, National Centers for Disease Control



"Simply put, condoms fail. And condoms fail at a rate unacceptable for me as a physician to endorse them as a strategy to be promoted as meaningful AIDS protection."
Quote from: ¾ Dr. Robert Renfield, chief of retro-viral research, Walter Reed Army Institute



"Relying on condoms for ‘protection’ can mean lifelong disease, suffering, and even death for you or for someone you love."
Quote from: ¾ Dr. Andre Lafrance, Canadian physician and researcher



"Saying that the use of condoms is ‘safe sex’ is in fact playing Russian roulette. A lot of people will die in this dangerous game."
Quote from: ¾ Dr. Teresa Crenshaw, member of the U.S. Presidential AIDS Commission and past president of the American Association of Sex Educators



Holes in Condoms . . .

STDs are very tiny organisms, minuscule in size compared to sperm. These super-small viruses can get through a hole in a condom much more easily than sperm can. For example, HIV (the AIDS-causing virus) is so small that two million of the disease-causing agents could crowd on the period at the end of a sentence.

In 1993 the University of Texas analyzed the results of 11 different studies that had tracked the effectiveness of condoms to prevent transmission of the AIDS virus. The average condom failure rate in the 11 studies for preventing transmission of the AIDS virus was 31%.

Young Vegetarians May Have Healthier Diets But Could Be At Risk For Disordered Eating Behaviors


Who would have though that young vegans would be at risk for disordered eating behaviors? I wouldn't think that at all, in fact, I thought that they would be the most healthiest! In some cases they are. Although adolescent and young adult vegetarians may eat a healthier diet, there is some evidence that they may be at increased risk for disordered eating behaviors. I guess whatever you eat and no matter your diet, you will always have some sort of problem with your health!
In a study published in the April 2009 issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, researchers observed that adolescent and young adult vegetarians may experience the health benefits associated with increased fruit and vegetable intake and young adults my experience the added benefit of decreased risk for overweight and obesity.

However, current vegetarians may be at increased risk for binge eating, while former vegetarians may be at increased risk for extreme unhealthful weight control behaviors.

Marijuana News?


I thought that Marijuana was safer than smoking and drinking. There has not been a report of overdose in marijuana right? Think of it that way. Yet I found an article that is kind of disturbing. Frequent and/or long-term marijuana use may significantly increase a man's risk of developing the most aggressive type of testicular cancer, according to a study by researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The study results were published online Feb. 9 in the journal Cancer.The researchers found that being a marijuana smoker at the time of diagnosis was associated with a 70 percent increased risk of testicular cancer. The risk was particularly elevated (about twice that of those who never smoked marijuana) for those who used marijuana at least weekly and/or who had long-term exposure to the substance beginning in adolescence.

The results also suggested that the association with marijuana use might be limited to nonseminoma, a fast-growing testicular malignancy that tends to strike early, between ages 20 and 35, and accounts for about 40 percent of all testicular-cancer

Blocked Enzyme Reverses Schizophrenia-like Symptoms


I think that Schizophrenia is a very bad disease, that worries me how you get it. My family friend was recently diagnosed with it, and had to quit being a police. Rest his soul. Schizophrenia is no joke. Researchers at MIT's Picower Institute for Learning and Memory have found that inhibiting a key brain enzyme in mice reversed schizophrenia-like symptoms.The finding, reported in the March 20 issue of Cell, identified how a particular gene controls this brain enzyme. Better understanding of the relationship could lead to new drug treatments for schizophrenia, the severe brain disorder that affects about 1 percent of the population and is characterized by hallucinations, delusions, poor social and emotional functioning and disorganized thoughts.

The Picower research focused on a gene known as DISC1 (short for "disrupted in schizophrenia 1"), which was first identified in the 1990s by researchers studying the genetic makeup of a large Scottish family with mental and behavioral disorders. DISC1 has since been shown to help brain neuronal cells migrate to their correct positions and to help new neurons grow in the developing brain, but its role was not well understood.

Slow down or Avoid Alzheimers


I'm sure of you all might now what Alzheimer's is. I think it's the saddest thing a person could ever get. Imagine your mother or father doesn't recognize who you are anymore? I remember watching "The Notebook", it was devastating because Allie had Alzheimer's. So I thought about it and I want to prevent it along with my other family members. It sad because there is no actual cure for Alzheimers.
The latest medical research suggests that the best hope for preventing or slowing down Alzheimer's is to adopt a lifestyle that includes the following:

Avoiding jarring your brain
Staying engaged in social activities with friends, family and others
Exercising your mind to keep your brain in tone
Eating a healthy diet and get regular exercise
Scientists are not yet sure how or why good health habits work to overcome a predisposition to Alzheimer's; and since we don’t fully understand the causes of this disease, we can’t be sure that everyone can avoid getting it. What we do know is that people can reduce some of their risk factors.

Older Adults Control Emotions More Easily Than Young Adults


I know I may be a girl, but I have a really bad temper! Haha I'm still young so I guess I can't control my emotions as easily as older adults. I think I've had a lot of anger from the past, that when any little thing ticks me off now, I just explode. this also happens with my crying. It may be because I'm a girl and I have enraging hormonal effects in me because of mother nature's monthly time. The research study found that regulating emotions – such as reducing negative emotions or inhibiting unwanted thoughts – is a resource-demanding process that disrupts the ability of young adults to simultaneously or subsequently perform tasks.

"This study is among the first to demonstrate that the costs of emotion regulation vary across age groups," said Fredda Blanchard-Fields, chair of Georgia Tech's School of Psychology and the study's lead author.

The study – which included 72 young adults who were 20 to 30 years old and 72 adults who were 60 to 75 years old – was funded by the National Institutes of Health. It was conducted by Blanchard-Fields and Susanne Scheibe, a former postdoctoral fellow at Georgia Tech currently at Stanford University.

I'm going to try and keep this as health related as possible.. the last two weeks have pretty much been like a roller coaster for me.. ups and downs.. sharp turns..etc. well i started to think how can someone feel soo sad yet be happy at the same time???

let me explain because I'm sure that doesn't make sense.. well the last two weeks have been filled with emotions for me.. my best friend was hospitalized and i was extremely worried, stressed out and scared and wanted her to come home ASAP! but around that time i started to date this new guy and everything was going so well.. (or so i thought). For the week my friend was in the hospital i hung out with my new friend the entire week and i had so much fun when i was with him .. yet i felt so terrible and sad for my friend.. i had MIXED EMOTIONS!!

I'm normally a stressed person anyways.. i stress out all the time which i know isn't good for me but i cant help it. so if you know me you can only imagine how i was during these past weeks. stress is something that most people don't really take all that seriously. i mean I'm not saying they just totally ignore it but stressing out isn't something we all try to control all that much.and we definitely don't realized what the consequences are until its too late.

the thing about me is that i stress out .. yet i keep it all in ( which Ive been told is worst) like i don't talk about whats making me mad or sad i just keep it inside and act like nothing is wrong, but if we know one thing is that everyone has there breaking point.. this past week i almost reached mine.

then i started to think .. Mann when I'm older( cause I'm 19 right now) I'm going to have some serious blood pressue issues. so i came up with a plan i can hopefully stick too.. instead of keeping everything inside like i have been i figured i can confided in someone that i absolutely trust and talk to them.. i know I'm not going to spill my guts or anything but i think if i can have someone that can relate to what I'm saying instead of me trying to figure and deal with everything on my own i can have a causal conversation and attempt to relate to something that one of my friends is also going through or has been through.. because lets face it no matter how different everyone is, all the problems are pretty much the same.

so instead of me trying to take everything on at one time i figured if i need help i can ask.( when i say help i mean as in someone too talk too > im pretty sure i can do this this.. well at least for the few couple times.. but if i can continue to do it i think in the long run it will all pay off.

Obesity Gene?


All my life I've never had to care about my weight. But It's hard because I may look skinny, but I an unhealthy inside full of sugar and all that bad containment. I gotta figure a way to feel better and not feel so sluggish about myself. but how bout the obesity people? how do they deal with feeling sluggish and not healthy. Most importantly they aren't doing anything about it! It is possible to pass this on to your children and they will become obese. The finding in an animal study suggests that blocking this gene could one day be a therapeutic strategy to reduce diet-related obesity and associated disorders, such as diabetes and liver damage, in humans.

The researchers found that a diet rich in fat induced production of this gene, called protein kinase C beta (PKC beta), in the fat cells of mice. These mice rapidly gained weight while eating a high-fat diet for 12 weeks.

On the other hand, mice genetically engineered to lack PKC beta gained relatively little weight and showed minimal health effects after eating the same high-fat diet.

In comparing the effects of the high-fat diet and a regular diet, the scientists found that mice fed the high-fat diet produced more PKC beta in their fat tissue than did mice eating a regular diet.

Left 4 Dead


So the other day i was out with my friend and he had a friend of his over too.
His friend as him if later on he wanted to go play left for dead for a little while. Again me being as video game aliterate as possible i asked what left 4 dead was and they both explained.( i have to give myself a little credit because i knew some of what they were talking about i figured they went to a place to play against each other just like ppl use to do with counterstrike)

anyways so it made me wonder. why arent there places out there for girls to go play or to get together and interact with each other?
hahaha after awhile i figured that was a pretty dumb question for me to ask and dropped it.
but back to my point Left 4 dead is someting my guy friend likes to do.. and to be honest i think its kinda cute because no matter how old a guy is ( in this case 21) he still enjoys going to play against his friends just like he did when they were younger.
And even though i have never played im always still willing to learn especially if its something that interested him.. but even if im never asked to play ( which is always no big deal) i know that when hes out there hes connecting with this little boy side. and like i said before its kinda cute :]

Pass The Salt Please?


Let me just get striaght to the point. I love salt, i add it to almost everything i eat( there are a few exceptions) but i just love the taste! i remember when i was little i would have to try and sneak some more salt in my food when my parents werent watching, because they would always say "you dont need that much" or "it already has salt in it" i hated hearing that. So when they would turn around or get up i would grab the slat shaker and try to put in as much as i could without them looking.( i got caught a few times but it was all worth it)

As i grew up i started to realize that all this storys my grandma and parents had told me werent just made up to scare me.Eating too much or too littel salt can have some serious health effects. Here are some of the Side effect for consuming too much salt.

Excess salt consumption has been linked to:

exercise-induced asthma.
heartburn
osteoporosisGastric cancer (Stomach cancer)
hypertension (high blood pressure):
left ventricular hypertrophy (cardiac enlargement)
edema (BE: oedema):
duodenal ulcers and gastric ulcers
Death.



i was shocked to see of those effects on the list cause i would have never thought salt could kill you but apparently it can. again with all storys theres always two sides and too little amount of salt intake can cause other health issues as well.
such as.
muscle cramps, dizziness, or even an electrolyte disturbance, which can cause severe, even fatal, neurological problems.
Drinking too much water, with insufficient salt intake, puts a person at risk of water intoxication (hyponatremia). Salt is even sometimes used as a health aid, such as in treatment of dysautonomia.


SO after reading all of this i still have a LOVE of salt.
i guess now i just have to realized that sometimes i only need two shakes instead of three.

A Little Spice in Your LIfe is Good


My parents used to tell me, "Don't eat spicy foods. It causes pimples and it's bad for you." It made sense to me, if soemthing is spicy and hurts your mouth isn't that your body's way of telling you it's harmful? Not necessarily. I've recently learned that eating spicy food is actually beneficial.

Anything spicy, from chilli peppers to jalapeno contains a sustance called CAPSAICIN, which is what gives the heat. Capsaicin is believed to reduce platelet formation to increase blood flow. In addition to increase blood flow, capsaicin is also believe to reduce pain. I remember seeing Dr. Oz on Oprah once, and he mentioned that the India Diet was so good for you, because it contains alot of spice, more specifically capsaicin.

In an article found in healingdaily.com, it states, "Today cayenne is used worldwide to treat a variety of health conditions, including poor circulation, weak digestion, heart disease, chronic pain, sore throats, headaches and toothache." That explains why people from around the world have been using cayennne to treat ailments for centuries. Chinese medicine use cayenne for digestive conditions. Dr. Richard Schulze, a medical herbalists, says, "If you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other."
