Sales Of Prescription Drugs Today

You know I wouldn’t hesitate to bet that half these prescription drugs that are being given to folks today, would be unnecessary if folks just ate healthier.  Hard to do though with food stores just brimming over with food full of pesticides and things. But in saying that, remember this, you are the one that puts these things into your body. You have a choice. You also have a choice on and if you should be taking all these prescription drugs.  My opinion only.   Take a look.

Booming sales of prescription drugs helped push profit at Shoppers Drug Mart Corp. up by 6.1 per cent in the first quarter, the company said Tuesday.

Prescription sales jumped 11.7 per cent to $1.09 billion, far more than the overall sales increase of 8.5 per cent. The increase was “driven by strong growth in the number of prescriptions filled,” even as the use of cheaper, generic drugs restricted the growth figure.

Vinyl Flooring, Maybe Not So Good To Have In Ones Home.

Kind of an interesting article here.  Kind of makes a fellow or gal think that maybe all these new items that we think are so nice these days might, and I say might, just be causing us all to get sick.  Joys of having to much money someone told me.  Hmm……….. Take a look.

In a study published on March 30, Swedish, Danish and U.S. scientists have discovered a link between vinyl flooring and autism in children. The purpose of the study — which involved nearly 5,000 children — was to investigate the connection between indoor air pollutants and allergies, however, the autism connection was accidentally found instead.

The findings, published in the journal Neurotoxicity, surprised even the scientists involved in the study, and are the first to find a connection between an environmental chemical and autism.

Cherries To The Rescue

A simple treatment for gout and the inflammation of arthritis is right at most folks doorsteps.  What is it?  Cherries.  Around six cherries a day is the amount. Not to hard to take huh?  I bet the big drug companies wish that they had invented them.  Now remember this, not all cherries are equal, as organic is the only way to go.   My opinion only.

Hot Peppers, I Sure Enjoy Them

Hot peppers are great for spicing up food. They may be even better for keeping the human body feeling in the spice of life. Capsaicin is the active ingredient in hot peppers and the one that turns up the heat. It is a compound useful in nature for preventing pepper plants from being eaten by insects and animals. When capsaicin is consumed by humans in the form of hot sauce, chili peppers or cayenne pepper, it offers a wealth of health benefits. One that has received much recent attention is the ability of capsaicin to make prostate cancer cells commit suicide.
