  1. Re: Climate change linked to rise in mercury levels in some fish

    Maurya, thanks for the additional info. This quote at the very end from Dr. Christopher Shade says it all: "....., and if they were eating low-selenium fish, they tended to have more problems than...
  2. Re: UK Goverment Panel Sticks To Ancient Outdated Low Fat Guidelines

    People invest billions of dollars each year in "weight loss" programs, like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Noom, and the Mayo Clinic Diet. The one constant variable in all these and other weight loss...
  3. Re: Why Parents Are Turning to a Controversial Treatment for Food Allergies

    Every allergist in the U.S. is not jumping onto this because there's more money in prescribing an EpiPen than prescribing probiotics. Probiotics may cure you. An EpiPen just gets you from one...
  4. Re: Vaccine Exemption Removal Bills ARE the War on Women

    No, they won't. Actually, it's a genius move on their part, catching a new mom at a particularly opportune time. A new mom will probably never be more receptive to vaccines than right after the...
  5. Re: Vaccine Exemption Removal Bills ARE the War on Women

    The Canadian province of Quebec has spent millions of dollars hiring "vaccine counselors." The job of a vaccine counselor is to have a friendly, gentle discussion with new mothers, who may be...
  6. Re: High Radiation CT Scans For Pregnant Women Quadruple In 20 Years

    If imaging is necessary, a pregnant woman should request an MRI, as they don't emit ionizing radiation like CT scans. If a CT scan is a must, risks to the baby are highest during early pregnancy,...

  8. Re: Why Parents Are Turning to a Controversial Treatment for Food Allergies

    We live in fear that my granddaughter will eat or come in contact with something that will trigger her very serious peanut allergy. The OIT method has existed for a while, but it's hard to find a...
  9. Re: UK Goverment Panel Sticks To Ancient Outdated Low Fat Guidelines

    There is so much money generated from fat-free, low-fat products. The powers-that-be will never reverse course!
  10. Re: Lions Mane Mushroom - Unparalled Benefits Your Brain And Nervous System

    I continue to read great things about mushrooms. I have a strong aversion to them. They are such ugly creatures, which persist in growing in my lawn.

  12. Re: Vitamin D Supplements Help Diabetics Control Sugar Levels

    Based on my second read, half of the 96 participants in this double-blind, placebo study received 5,000 IUs daily and showed improvement. But, they were all "newly" diagnosed T2D or pre-diabetic. ...
  13. Re: In A 1st, Doctors In U.S. Use CRISPR Tool To Treat Patient With Genetic Disorder

    Excellent point!! The peoples most affected by sickle cell live or are descendants from areas where malaria is most common, like Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and Southern Asia (India).

    Re: Simone Biles

    She's a real inspiration to me. She's a 6 Time National Champion who was raised in a number of foster homes after both her mother and father both succumbed to drug addictions. At some point, the...
  16. Re: Vitamin D Supplements Help Diabetics Control Sugar Levels

    Too bad this article--and several others I read--did not mention the type of vit. D. Upon further research, I found that the study used 5,000 IUs of D3 daily. After 6 months, participants showed...

    Re: Simone Biles

    Lol. Yes, in another life I use to move like that. Lol. Interestingly, during an interview, she stated that wild salmon was the most consistent staple in her diet. I should have eaten more...
  18. Re: In A 1st, Doctors In U.S. Use CRISPR Tool To Treat Patient With Genetic Disorder

    I hope and pray this CRISPR procedure is successful for the sake of the millions of people around the world dealing with sickle cell abnormalities. Sickle cell strikes mostly people from South &...
  19. Re: Climate change linked to rise in mercury levels in some fish

    As noted repeatedly here at HH, mercury levels in fish is a totally overblown issue. Most commonly eaten fish contain the mineral selenium, which counteracts mercury. Most fish/mercury studies fail...

  21. Re: How One FDA Scientist Saved American Children From a Birth Defect Catastrophe

    Kudos for everything Pattypans said. Dr. Frances O. Kelsey was truly a rare breed. Having worked 45 yrs. for FDA, she could have commanded millions of dollars if she'd decided to jump ship and go...
  22. Re: Why we like what we like: A scientist’s surprising findings

    Very informative!! Armed with the facts presented in this article, I now fear my son was a "supertaster?" Wish I hadn't forced him to eat veggies, especially broccoli. Also, I found it...
  23. Re: Chipotle, Sweetgreen bowls are linked to cancer-causing chemicals

    What a shame. Chipotle prides itself on its organic menu. You'd think the "corporate heads" would have paid a little more attention to the bowls, utensils, etc. The easy fix is stop treating...
  24. Re: Heart Rhythm Drugs Increase Risk Of Dangerous Falls

    Thanks, but, I really can't take credit for the info. I found the original Danish study and it concluded that the risk was greatest within the first 90 days, with the first 2 weeks being especially...
  25. Re: Heart Rhythm Drugs Increase Risk Of Dangerous Falls

    Heart rhythm drugs are especially difficult to calibrate when the patient first begins the drug. The risk of fainting and/or falling declines significantly after the first 90 days, which is about...
