Health Secretary Refuses To Bend Rules For Transplant For Dying Child

Last night I was pleased, thinking I was well on the road to recovery. Maybe I just needed to be reminded that it is a long road with lots of bumps and potholes.

Update, 3/14/2011: The U.S. Department of health and human services is announcing a proposal to change the recommended fluoride level to 0.7 milligrams per liter of water. The standard since 1962 has been a range of 0.7 to 1.2 milligrams per liter. There was no health risk at the higher level, but fluorosis has been observed in kids teeth, particularly those who may get fluoride from other sources.

Balance the food you eat with physical activity. Maintain or improve your Weight to reduce your chances of having high blood pressure, heart disease, a stroke, certain cancers, and the most common forms of diabetes.

Do you think you want to wait and sign up when you are 65? My good friend Scott told me all he wanted was enough insurance to get himself buried, until he had a heart attack at 54. Now he can’t afford long term care because the insurance company wants so much more money due to his heart attack. So here he is, a high risk, and spending his nest egg for care, when he could have been covered. Medicare won’t cover him, so he has to spend all of his assets, until he is determined to be indigent. Then he can go on Medicaid. He has to be broke to get coverage!

When I had been pregnant the first time I had felt great: beautiful, courageous even majestic. Yes, I also felt tired, fat and nauseated but I loved being pregnant. I didn’t feel all of the awful things most pregnant women felt. I enjoyed being pregnant.

OProtect your reputation. If you doubt that you can get through a day without symptoms messing things up, stay at home, even if it means a day without pay. To go to work could mean you lose your job.

Do you need Long Term Care insurance? Maybe your kids will take care of you, but the average cost of in-home care to the family is about an extra ,000 per year. Can your kids handle that? Do you want them to? Maybe you are thinking about an assisted living outfit. That will run you about ,000 per year.

Fluoride is toxic at high levels but has health benefits at low levels. Fluoride is sometimes added to water at concentrations less than 1 ppm as it helps to prevent tooth decay by hardening tooth enamel. Tooth decay sometimes allows bacteria to enter the bloodstream where they can cause heart disease and other infections. There are places where fluoride occurs naturally in water at ten times the concentration used to fluoridate water and there have been no long term effects except fluorosis, a brown stain on children’s teeth.
