Health Notes

This article talks about child development and autism. And this website goes into more detail about child development milestones, etc, for various disorders including autism, mental retardation, hearing loss, and ADHD.

Here is an article that speculates that bulimia might be caused by an imbalance of hormones such as testosterone and estrogen.

This article talks about Dr. Mark Hyman’s book Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss. Some of his ideas include eating more protein, eating smaller meals more often, and drinking green tea.

Stress management training may be good for your heart.

The antiviral drug valganciclovir may be helpful in treating chronic fatigue syndrome.

This article says that spicy foods might help protect us against cancer. They are talking mainly about capsaicin here, a compound found in hot chili peppers. I don’t think this is really new news.

Here is an article on surviving pancreatic cancer.

Is caffeine better than aspirin and ibuprofen in reducing muscle pain after a workout?

How do we explain the fact that Australians are among the longest living people in the world? Do they have a good diet, a better environment, a lack of stress? What? That is a puzzle. BTW, this is not to say that they are among the healthiest people in the world, just that they live a long time. However longevity is a good start.

Note: links that look good today often are no longer good in the future. I make every effort to create good links. When I discuss a topic, I also attempt to provide enough pertinent information so that readers won’t have to rely solely on the link at hand for their understanding, or for their further research.
