The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Samaritan Pharmaceuticals has an exciting new drug against Alzheimer’s disease. The substance is called caprospinol, and it may not only block amyloid plaque from forming, but it also may get rid of deposits that are already there in the brain.

Are foods, like drugs, addictive? A new study seems to have reached that conclusion.

Some people who drink coffee may have a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Sad people may be able to feel happy if they make themselves laugh. Laughter yoga is a new fad that seems to be catching on.

Is progress being made on treating Lou Gehrig’s disease? Here’s an article on some recent research.

Herceptin may now be used in some breast cancer cases.

Onions and garlic may be one component in preventing colon, ovarian, and throat cancers.

Children taking atypical antipsychotics like Zyprexa and Risperdal may gain weight as an unwanted side effect. The diabetes drug metformin may help. I know someone who was taking Zyprexa and gained A LOT of weight. They switched to Risperdal and lost the weight. Today they are positively skinny. BTW, Risperdal seemed to act faster for them on their psychotic symptoms than Zyprexa did.

Would you believe that the headache remedy Head On (we’ve all seen the ads on TV) is homeopathic? Some people say it doesn’t work.

When I think about major surgery, I think about hard work that takes a long time. Are older surgeons still up to that task?
