    I don't know enough science to speculate on the downsides, but there must be some. Maybe price!

    Re: Is It Possible To Eat Too Much Fruit?

    It's also wise wise to have a healthy balance of protein/carbohydrates/fats, and to include variety in your diet. Dark green and orange/yellow vegetables are especially nutritious!
  3. Re: Alert But Not Alarmed: New h1in1 Swine Flu Found In China

    Yes, that's where they usually originate. HIV, bird flu, swine flu, and possibly COVID-19, which is suspected to have originated in bats. Thousands of viruses are carried in animals and it's only a...
  4. Re: Warning Of Serious Brain Disorders In People With Mild Covid Symptoms

    Thanks for catching this, Julieanne. I was on my way here to post it!
  5. Re: President Bolsonaro Of Brazil Tests Positive For The Virus

    Julie, I'm struggling to remain civilized in these perilous times. :cool:
  6. Re: New Class Of Safer Analgesics Discovered

    But Julieanne, aren't acetaminophen and paracetamol the same thing? In which case, taking them together would be a double dose of Tylenol, potentially harmful to the liver.
  7. Re: President Bolsonaro Of Brazil Tests Positive For The Virus

    He's a clone of our own head of state.
  8. Re: Gene Therapy Is Facing Biggest Challenge Yet

    Wow, that's a lot. I wonder if it would make sense, or be affordable, for women to freeze their eggs, and men to freeze sperm, in advance of chemotherapy treatment.
  9. Re: New Class Of Safer Analgesics Discovered

    I can't wait that long! As an analgesic, acetaminophen does almost nothing for me.
  10. Re: Nurses Who Battled Virus In NY Confront Friends Who Say It Is A Hoax

    I want to say that this is incomprehensible, but in fact it's probably pretty believable, sad to say. We have been ruined by our president's constant repetition of the "fake news" phrase, to the...
  11. Re: President Bolsonaro Of Brazil Tests Positive For The Virus

    An exhibition of karma at its finest.
  12. Re: GO Transit to add plastic shields between seats

    The follow-on effects of the novel coronavirus are being experienced in a variety of ways as our understanding of its transmission increases. Apparently, many people resist the voice of authority in...
  13. Re: Newer Variant Of Covid-19-Causing Virus Dominates Global Infections

    The takeaway: this mutation does not appear to make the virus more contagious. There, saved you a lot of reading time!
  14. Re: Eat healthy yet still satisfy your craving

    Scilover, that's an interesting and and informative article, even though it appears to have been written by someone whose first language is not English. However, I suggest that you read the "Getting...
  15. Re: New York boy dies after smell of cooking fish caused possible allergic reaction:

    I'd say, relax. This story is so sketchy, so lacking in detail, that I would hesitate to take it seriously. And as someone pointed out, if the fish had been cooked in peanut oil, and the child had a...
  16. Re: Gene Therapy Is Facing Biggest Challenge Yet

    Many procedures require the careful wording of risk versus benefit, and this is just another example.
  17. Re: A Year In, 1st Patient To Get Gene Editing For Sickle Cell Disease Is Thriving

    A quick glimpse behind Islander's curtain: I have two big vegetable gardens and a cannabis grow to tend to. I had to take the dog to the vet for follow-up treatment, a 90-mile round-trip. Another...
  18. Re: Alert But Not Alarmed: New h1in1 Swine Flu Found In China

    Good to know, but small comfort!
  19. Re: Announcing a shift in the Hawkes' Heath "Rules" on political discourse

    Not sure what you mean, but use your common sense.

    Re: Venting in the Blogspot

    Here's the latest in this trend to defy mainstream medical advice that has generally been recognized as indisputable. This article has been re-printed at least once, based on what I see in my inbox....
  22. Re: Alert But Not Alarmed: New h1in1 Swine Flu Found In China

    What a horrible thought. I surely hope not! One virus at a time, please! I wonder whether such a two pronged attack is even possible.
  23. Re: A Year In, 1st Patient To Get Gene Editing For Sickle Cell Disease Is Thriving

    Wow, that's a really in-depth article, Mr. Wizard. Would you be willing to post it as a stand-alone story in the Other Heath Concerns forum?
  24. Announcing a shift in the Hawkes' Heath "Rules" on political discourse

    For four years, the U.S. mainstream media and "legacy" media have been tiptoeing around Donald Trump's misstatements, trying to find acceptable euphemisms for the words "lies" and "liar." Those...
