The Insanity Of Food Poisoning

iofp“I woke up about 1 a.m. At first I thought I just had to go to the bathroom, but then the nausea hit. For the next six hours, I didn’t leave the bathroom. As I emptied out everything inside me from both directions, I broke out in a sweat from the cramps.

“I began thinking about food I had eaten that day. At 7 p.m. I had eaten the special at an Italian restaurant–Chicken Parmesan. I remember it wasn’t very hot when it was served, but it tasted great.

“The restaurant was very busy, and I assumed that was the reason for a messy floor and slow service. Now, I think the messy floor was probably an indication of a dirty kitchen.

Getting “Back” To Good Health

gh“Hold it! Don’t move him!” The shout came from a crowd of people that had formed at the site of an auto accident. Two men were about to pull a semiconscious man from his wrecked car. A teen emerged from the crowd with some excellent advice.

“There isn’t any danger here. The car isn’t smoking or in danger of catching fire, and traffic is under control. This man may have injured his neck or back. If you pull him out, you could do more harm.”

One of the most common mistakes made at the scene of auto accidents is moving the victims unnecessarily. It seems a lot of people have the idea that victims should be removed from their vehicles and placed on the ground before they can be given …

Check Your Head!

cyhHow many times have you had one of those throbbing headaches and somebody says–“For Pete’s sake, it’s only a little headache. You’re just trying to get out of going to class. Take an aspirin.”

smdcaaWouldn’t it be great if you could just take a pill that would help you breeze through hard math problems and remember all those names and dates in your history book? Wouldn’t it be great to make straight A’s without really having to work for them? Many scientists think that drugs that can make a person “smart” may someday become a reality. But they also agree that the “smart” drugs, nutrients, and drinks currently being marketed probably don’t work.

Prescription “Smart” Drugs

A number of legitimate drug companies have already started designing and testing drugs they call “cognitive enhancers,” which someday may improve thinking ability. However, it will be a long time before really effective drugs are developed, and they must be thoroughly tested before they can be sold legally …

Injuries Require Rest For Full Healing


Let’s face it, sports can be a blast. But an injury? Well, that’s another story. Not only can an injury be painful, but having to put your active life on hold while recuperating is no fun at all. Yet, doctors, physical therapists, and trainers all agree it is very important to allow enough time for an injury to heal properly before returning to physical activities.

Athletes anxious to get back into the game risk further and/or worse damage to the injured area when they become too impatient for the healing process to complete its course. According to Dr. Craig Young, primary care team doctor for the Milwaukee Brewers and the Milwaukee Ballet Company, if an injured person returns to the activity too soon, that person risks permanent damage.

If you were to take a poll in your health class right now, how many students would say they have broken or fractured at least one bone? Probably a lot of students have had this experience and many will have broken more than one bone.

Many fractures occur from falling, while others have happened in sports activities or auto accidents. The most common sites for fractures are the arms and legs.

If you have had any first aid training, you are familiar with the term splint, a device to immobilize a broken bone–especially broken or fractured arms or legs. In some areas of the body, however, fractures occur that are not so easy to deal with.

Healthy Nutrition Equals Healthy Sperm

hneMen manufacture sperm constantly. The process takes place in the testicles and lasts 70 to 80 days. Because sperm enter and leave the assembly line continuously, a healthy man may have 2 to 3 billion in the works at any moment. You don’t need a calculator to see how even a small problem can create millions of factory rejects.

And nowadays, keeping your sperm up to par may actually require some effort. Studies show that the typical 1990s man produces about 66 million warriors per cubic centimeter–a little more than half the number his 1940s counterpart was capable of creating, possibly due to environmental factors.

What qualifies sperm as healthy? Doctors consider three factors. First, the sperm count. Fall below 20 million and you’re considered infertile. Second is motility. You …

Schools Start Serving Healthy Food – Finally!


If you’re fed up with school lunches, you’re not alone. Everybody from U. S. senators to a student group called Kids Against Junk Food (KAJF) is demanding better food in school cafeterias.

A recent U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) report reveals that school lunches have 85 percent more sodium (basically, that means salt), 50 percent more saturated fat, and 25 percent more fat of all kinds than the department recommends for a healthy diet. Yet the U. S. government reports that many students eat their most nutritious meal of the day at school. No wonder the American Red Cross found that 39 percent of seniors at one high school had high cholesterol.

The USDA and the Senate Agriculture Committee recently held hearings to come up with new, improved guidelines …
