“The hard part of professional journalism going forward is writing about what hasn’t been written about, directing attention where it hasn’t been, and saying something new.”
One of the most popular page on our website - several hundred visitors each month - is about a compounded preparation that we refer to as Magic Mouthwash. Actually, there are many versions and variations. It is a preparation used to relieve pain and discomfort associated with mouth sores (stomatitis). Our page explains the differences and similarities.
I read this report that explained how “Higher body mass index (BMI), previous knee injury, and radiographically confirmed osteoarthritis (OA) are predictors of persistent knee pain in women 50 years and older…” Is this earth shattering NEWS?
The first thing that comes to mind when a woman discovers painful lumps on her breasts is the BIG C. Thankfully, that usually isn’t the case, especially when the woman is young. It is a common condition - not a disease - that is referred to as Fibrocystic Breast - actually means lumps in the breast. Instead of fear, biopsies, and testing, some doctors get excellent results with iodine and progesterone. Read more on my website.
Brian Caputo says the city currently pays $.07733 per kw-hour. Com Ed confirmed that the rates on the west side of Aurora are $.06968 for residential and $.07014 for commercial. Should the city should FIRST demonstrate that it can negotiate a better rate for itself before it begins to work on my behalf?
It is important to KNOW that the savings are on the cost of the electricity, NOT the franchise fees, taxes, or any of the other fees tacked on to the bill.
If you absolutely must heat your food in a microwave machine, never, ever use plastic wraps or containers. The charged microwaves will drive toxic chemicals (and BPA) from the plastic and INTO your food.
What about those heat-and-serve containers, the black ones in which many frozen foods are delivered? Nope! They contain plastic.
Endocrine disruptor (BPA) from the lining of soup cans shows up in urine of test subjects. Whether its “harmful”, “possibly harmful”, or even “possibly safe”, I would prefer bisphenol A NOT be in my food. I do my best to avoid canned soup - canned anything, actually. I’m certainly not 100% successful, but I think I do better than most.
Here’s a simple method for improving health. Place a wedge of lemon (about an eighth) in a cup of hot water. No sweetener. No mint. No ice cubes. This article offers ten good reasons to do this. I’ve done this in the past and just “got out of the habit”. I’m starting again in the morning.
Here’s a PubMed abstract about the effects of Vitamin D3 in preventing the flu. Yes, geeks like me read the abstract and the studies, but that isn’t necessary. If you don’t have the time or inclination check out the details for yourself, trust me when I say that Vitamin D3 supplements can be very effective in reducing the incidence of flu. A wise person will take extra Vitamin D3 during the cold/flu season - and get plenty of sunshine during the rest of the year.
This is a surgeon explaining how she uses special fluorescent materials to assure that she gets ALL of the cancer when she operates. She actually uses the word, “cure”. Her basic health philosophy informs her that cancer is a unique set of cells that she can excise completely and bring about her cures. Sadly, the tumor isn’t the cancer. It is merely the result of a cancer. Yes, she surgically removes all of the material, but she’s still a long way from being able to claim a cure. Surgery, chemo, and radiation MIGHT help, but they will never cure.
