  1. Re: Birth rate in U.S. falls to lowest level in 32 years, CDC says

    One of the major studies that followed over 5 million children from various countries noted that older couples where the father was at least 10 yrs. older than the mother were at even greater risk of...

    Re: Best Workouts for losing weight

    I would include "fast-paced walking" to the list. I've found daily walking at a brisk pace sheds pounds. More importantly, walking reduces both visceral and subcutaneous fat, while preserving...
  3. Re: Birth rate in U.S. falls to lowest level in 32 years, CDC says

    The world's population stands at about 7.7 Billion people, estimated to reach 10 Billion people by 2050. So, we'll probably be OK with a few less people. However, the population dip in certain...

    Re: Rabbi Handler viewpoint on measles

    It sure is. Can't quite figure out why the measles cases are being targeted. They could "legitmately" claim a mumps "crisis" and still increase profits, given the same vaccine--MMR--targets both...
  5. Re: TV Ads for Drugs Must Now Include Prices...to Drive Down Pharmaceutical Costs

    So, this move will likely increase "transparency," but drive down drug costs....not so much! Perhaps if the industry reduced its TV ad budget from $5 Billion a year to $2 or $3 Billion, then they...

    Re: Rabbi Handler viewpoint on measles

    According to CDC data, 839 measles cases reported as of May 10. Where's the epidemic? CDC also reports 15,000 to 50,000 cases of whooping cough each year for the past 10 yrs., and up to 20 babies...
  7. Re: California defies Trump to ban pesticide linked to childhood brain damage

    For fear of treading into the forbidden territory of politics, suffice it to say this situation is further testament to "elections have consequences." Since the feds won't ban it, states should...

    Re: The Truth About Vaccines

    This short video covers a lot of territory, and if completely factual, should give all us pause about vaccines. The one retort I always use when someone tells me that vaccines are safe & effective...
  9. Re: The Foreskin: Why Is It Such A Secret In North America?

    Welcome back. A clove or two of raw garlic each day for the next few days should help kill most anything you may have picked up in the hospital setting. Good luck my friend.
  10. Re: Elderberries Could Help Minimise Flu Symptoms

    There is no easy way to determine who pays for nutritional studies. In fact, the food & beverage industries intentionally make it difficult for us to determine that they're behind many of these...
  11. Re: FDA Adds Black Boxed Warning to Insomnia Drugs

    Not sure a "black box" warning on insomnia drugs will make much difference. It certainly has not for prescription opioid medications. When people are truly suffering, they want and need relief. It...
  12. Re: Arsenic Found In 11 Bottled Water Brands, Consumer Report Says

    "Inorganic" arsenic is in the soil & water. "Organic" arsenic is mainly found in fish and shellfish, and is regarded almost harmless. Certain foods, like rice and cruciferous veggies, are highest...
  13. Re: Judge rules New York county can’t ban unvaccinated children from schools, parks

    You raise an excellent question, Pattypans. I didn't find any research that suggested a "resting regimen" would prevent a post-pubertal man from experiencing orchitis. However, a resting regimen...
  14. Re: A Quick Walk a Day Keeps Arthritis at Bay

    You're lucky you were able to resolve it by avoiding beer/yeast. Most men have to cut back on red meat, most forms of seafood, HFCS, and almost anything that causes uric acid levels to increase. ...
  15. Re: Study Shows Fracking Is Depleting US Drinking Water Sources at a Catastrophic Rat

    Sorry for the confusion. So, toilet water--or what I call waste water--is treated via RO. Then, this RO-treated water is then mixed back in with other surface water (usually a resevoir), or...
  16. Re: Resting Heart Rate Above 75? It Could Be An indicator Of Early Death

    Lol. Unfortunately, both.
  17. Re: The Foreskin: Why Is It Such A Secret In North America?

    As this extremely long, well-written diatribe points out, "male" circumcision is steeped in complex religious, social, medical, and cultural controversy. Bottom line: male circumcision--and even...
  18. Re: Study Shows Fracking Is Depleting US Drinking Water Sources at a Catastrophic Rat

    Yes, the reverse osmosis (RO) process is the key for converting waste water to drinking water. RO, for example, is effective in removing up to 95% of pharmaceuticals from drinking water. But,...
  19. Re: A Quick Walk a Day Keeps Arthritis at Bay

    Walking is truly underrated. A few years ago, I had to stop jogging, at which point I discovered the many benefits of walking. In a nutshell, regular walking can: lower blood pressure; lower blood...
  20. Re: Judge rules New York county can’t ban unvaccinated children from schools, parks

    You're right, a male contracting the mumps after puberty may experience swelling of the testicles. It's called orchitis. Also, females having the mumps after puberty may experience swelling of the...
  21. Re: Study Shows Fracking Is Depleting US Drinking Water Sources at a Catastrophic Rat

    So, the term "toilet to tap" has been used to describe drinking water made from waste water. However, based on my readings, this couldn't be further from the truth. Here's how the process works: ...
  22. Re: Judge rules New York county can’t ban unvaccinated children from schools, parks

    Merck has been fighting a lawsuit over its ineffective mumps vaccine (part of MMR) since 2010. There have been far more cases of the mumps than measles. According to CDC data, between 2016 - 2017,...

    That's a good one!
  24. Re: Study Shows Fracking Is Depleting US Drinking Water Sources at a Catastrophic Rat

    The prediction is for more treated waste water being used as drinkable water, rather than desalinated water. Although the costs for desalinated plants are coming down, these plants create 1.5 times...
  25. Re: Resting Heart Rate Above 75? It Could Be An indicator Of Early Death

    My resting heart rate was around 45 when I was younger, due to regular jogging, lifting weights, and my martial arts workouts. Healthcare practitioners always expressed concern that it was too low...
