@Adriana - What a success story! Wow, that doesn't take a 'little' inspirations, that takes pure determination. Wish I had a quarter of the oomph that he had....

What about cholesterol?

Another Coup For Caffeine
- and one more reason to love your French press. Drinking coffee may reduce your risk of diabetes by preventing the development of high blood-sugar levels and increasing sensitivity to insulin, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

Morgue Ad Targets McDonald's

On a slab at the morgue, the deceased man’s hand still clutches his partially eaten fast food burger as a woman weeps.

It is a startling image, one meant to get your attention. The video makes its point in a mere 39 seconds. Fast food is going to kill you. But it doesn’t stop there. The famous golden arches, along with the words, “I was lovin’ it,” makes it clear that Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is taking aim at fast food giant McDonald’s.

The only spoken words in the ad are, “High cholesterol. High blood pressure. Heart attacks. Tonight, make it vegetarian.”

Is your doctor's religion relevant?
August 26, 2010
BBC

The religious beliefs of doctors strongly influence the decisions they make when people are close to death, according to research published in the Journal of Medical Ethics.

Professor of medical sociology Clive Seale and cross bench peer Baroness Finlay debate whether patients should take an interest in their doctor's religious beliefs.

Washing Raw Chicken Actually Increases Food Poisoning Risk

By axfollmer
July 27, 2010


Washing raw chicken before cooking it, a common practice in much of the world, may actually increase your risk of spreading harmful bacteria around your kitchen, according to a new study from Britain.

British health authorities estimate that as much as 65 percent of store-bought chicken meat is contaminated with campylobacter, the most commonly-identified cause of food-borne illness in the U.K.

Cooking chicken meat properly kills the nasty bacteria that can lead to stomach illness and diarrhea. But the new study from the U.K. showed that washing chicken meat could spread the campylobacter across a 3-foot radius in the kitchen, potentially contaminating other work surfaces and foods.

A spokeswoman for the British health authorities had this warning for consumers:

''Washing raw poultry is a common kitchen mistake, and it simply isn't necessary. Tap water won't get rid of the germs that cause food poisoning but they will be killed by thorough cooking. By washing your raw bird, you're actually more likely to spread the germs around the kitchen than get rid of them.''

British authorities are looking for ways to wash bacteria off chicken meat before it reaches stores, but no method has been approved yet by European regulators.

Yeah, Sydni. It's only 3mm so it's small enough to pass on it's own. My dad had a 9mm one once, and they had to go up there and stick a stent in his ureter. He was peeing blood clots for 2 weeks. That's pretty much why I started running, and dieting. :)
Comment by Sydni Moser on July 19, 2010 at 5:07pm
Are they waiting for it to pass on it's own? Has to be absolute agony. I'd demand sufficient pain meds to better cope. So sorry you are having this trouble Kevin.
Comment by Kevin Hamlin on July 19, 2010 at 12:53pm
Thanks for asking, Sydni. They gave me morphine to help take the edge off the pain, but today it is back with a vengeance =/
