We also know that MRSA does not survive on copper surfaces. By replacing faucet handles, door knobs and door plates and toilet seats with copper surfaces, MRSA infections could be reduced drastically or eliminated in hospitals. Copper also kills some harmful things found in drinking water.

I would say bad parenting is the true link - parenting that's allowing these kids to consume such unhealthy beverages.

Wonder how long it'll take for one of our "Disease Is Good" posters to announce that this is proof HIV infection cures cancer, and that it is wrong to pursue an HIV vaccine.

I used prilosec otc which worked the first time but subsequent times failed. My problem was intake of acid foods and lying down with food in my stomach so it would come up my throat. After changes to eating and such i now am fine without any antacids or other meds. Alcohol can worsen GERD as well and large meals are a nono.

I didnt think I would overcome my problem but I have. its about priorities, at least for me.

The headline and first paragraph of the story are misleading:

"The same virus that causes paralysis and sometimes death in polio patients may have the potential to cure people with cancerous brain tumors"

It's not the same virus that causes paralytic polio.

They used a vaccine virus strain and genetically modified it to keep it out of normal brain cells.

Using the body's immune system against viruses that target tumors (modified measles vaccine virus has been tested in a similar fashion) is an interesting and potentially useful approach to cancer therapy.

The linked study was in mouse and human tissue cultures, not human beings - so firm conclusions can't yet be drawn.

With any drug, you weigh incidence of side effects against the effects of the disease. From the article:

"It's likely to be a difficult choice: If you have a family history of GERD, Barrett's esophagus, and esophageal cancer, then PPIs are probably a good idea. But if you have heart disease risk factors or a family history of heart disease, then you might reconsider using PPIs."

Chronic gastroesophageal reflux can be a really nasty problem and worth treating with effective medications, if lifestyle changes alone are not enough to handle it.

POPULAR ACID REFLUX DRUGS MAY LEAD TO HEART DISEASE, NEW RESEARCH SUGGESTS
Stomach acid-suppressing proton pump inhibitors - Prilosec, Nexium and Prevacid - may cause blood vessels to constrict, reducing blood flow. Their use led to approximately 25% increase in a ADMA, considered a cardiovascular risk factor.

HEAD TRANSPLANTS AND SPINAL REPAIRS
"Scientists have been aware for over a decade that olfactory ensheathing cells (OEC) might be useful in treating the damaged spinal cord because of their unique properties. The cells have the ability to support nerve fibre growth that maintains a pathway between the nose and the brain."

COMMON MEDS WITH CAFFEINE MAY BE LINKED TO STROKE
The products included mostly over the counter pain relievers, cold medicines and alertness aids containing small amounts of caffeine. "Caffeine is a vasoconstrictor, causing blood vessels to tighten and increasing the pressure of the blood flow."
