A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hi Everyone,

Hope all of you are adjusting to the change in seasons. I know we like this
time because there is so much to do and the colors are so beautiful.

Below is information about a warning on drugs that are being recalled. I
checked this out and it is real. Please forward this to everyone who might
be interested.

*****************

Find the information here!

All drugs containing PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE are being

recalled. You may want to try calling the 800 number listed on most drug
boxes and inquire about a REFUND.

Please read this CAREFULLY. Also, please pass this on to everyone you know.
There is a government website listed at the bottom of this e-mail for more
information on the recall.

STOP TAKING anything containing this ingredient. It has been linked to
increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages 18-49 in
the three days after starting use of medication. Problems were not found in
men, but the FDA recommended that everyone (even children) seek alternative
medicine.

*****************

Also, I think it is great about the article below that discusses health care
costs can be reduced by taking vitamins. Of course, we knew this all along.
It just appears that we now have other folks agreeing with us too.

Should prove interesting as this message goes forth, for sure.

Thanks for sharing our ezines and our websites with your family and friends.
Your support is greatly appreciated.


Until next time,
Randal

U.S. STUDY SHOWS VITAMINS SAVE HEALTH CARE COSTS
Thu Oct 2,10:08 AM ET

By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Correspondent

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Want to save health care dollars? Give vitamins to
the elderly, a study published on Thursday suggests.

The study, done on behalf of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
Services and Wyeth Consumer Health by health care consultant The Lewin
Group, finds that vitamins could improve overall health, making elderly
people less likely to need drugs or hospital care.

"The Lewin Group study found that daily use of a multivitamin by older
adults is a relatively inexpensive yet potentially powerful way to improve
one's health," Lewin said in the report.

As people age, and especially after age 65, the immune system generally
weakens, leaving them vulnerable to infections.

"The five-year estimate of potential savings (or cost offsets) resulting
from improved immune functioning and a reduction in the relative risk of
coronary artery disease through providing older adults with a daily
multivitamin is approximately $1.6 billion," the report concludes.

"The five-year estimated cost offset associated with avoidable
hospitalization for heart attacks is approximately $2.4 billion," it adds.

Over five years, the report concludes, it would cost $2.3 billion to provide
a daily multivitamin to older adults in the United States.

Tom Scully, Commissioner of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services at
the Health and Human Services (news - web sites) Department, was scheduled
to comment on the report later on Thursday.

The study was launched with the aim of finding an inexpensive way to save
money in health care.

CHILDHOOD STRESS - by KidsHealth.org

As providers and caretakers, adults tend to view the world of children as
happy and carefree. After all, what could kids possibly have to worry about?

Plenty! Even very young children have worries and feel stress to some
degree.

Stress is a function of the demands placed on us and our ability (or
sometimes our perceived ability) to meet them. Pressures often come from
outside sources (such as family, friends, or school), but they can also come
from within. The pressure we place on ourselves can be most significant
because there is often a discrepancy between what we think we ought to be
doing and what we are actually doing in our lives.

Stress can affect anyone - even a child - who feels overwhelmed. A 2-year-
old child, for example, may be anxious because the person she needs to help
her feel good - her parent - isn't there enough to satisfy her. In
preschoolers, separation from parents is the greatest cause of anxiety.

KNEE OSTEOARTHRITIS IN WOMEN - IT'S THE SHOES

Why do twice as many women have arthritic knees than men?

Harvard researchers think ˆ "It's gotta' be the shoes."

D. Casey Kerrigan, MD, wanted to see if high heels played any part in the
higher incidence of knee osteoarthritis in women. She found that women who
wear 2-1/2 inch heels strain the joints, muscles, and tendons in their
knees. Read more on this story:

One of the world's greatest scientists was also recognized as the original
absent-minded professor. One day, on board a train, he was unable to find
his ticket. The conductor said, "Take it easy. You'll find it."

When the conductor returned, the professor still couldn't find the ticket.
The conductor, recognizing the famous scientist, said, "I'm sure you bought
a ticket. Forget about it."

"You're very kind," the professor said, "but I must find it, otherwise I
won't know where to get off."
