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.

Health Notes
Women, here are symptoms of ovarian cysts.

Men, here are some symptoms of low testosterone.

Um, this is kind of important: at least one treatment for prostate cancer might cause a man’s penis to get shorter. No joke, really.

Women, eating trans fats might lead to infertility.

And nursing mothers should probably try to get enough calcium in their diet to avoid bone loss around their teeth.

Here is an article about too much body fat and inflammation. Bottom line: neither is good for you, regardless of your weight.

Apparently older obese adults can benefit from changing their lifestyle, i.e. exercise and cut calories.

The good news: having a certain Alzheimer’s gene affects you little if any during adulthood. The bad news: if you live long enough the effects become more likely to show up much later in life.

There are some people in North America who really have to worry about mercury pollution. You know, somehow I don’t think that’s in the spirit of the American Dream. I mean, in some ways this kind of pollution is more dangerous than terrorism, and it is given by Americans to Americans. You would like to think that where you are living is safe. That is not always the case. And the threats are not always obvious, nor are they always external. Lord save us from ourselves.

Apparently women are more likely to survive lung cancer than men are.

If you have kidney cancer, there are two drugs that might help. One is called sunitinib (Sutent), and the other is sorafenib.

And those pesky viruses create such havoc and misery in the world, maybe they could be made to do some good for a change, like helping to fight cancer.

Note: links that look good today often are no longer good in the future. I make every effort to create good links. When I discuss a topic, I also attempt to provide enough pertinent information so that readers won’t have to rely solely on the link at hand for their understanding, or for their further research.
