Tea and Alzheimer's

A soothing cup of tea can protect the mind as well as comfort the body. Researchers in the United Kingdom have found that tea may delay the onset of Alzheimer's by inhibiting brain enzymes linked to the disease.

Scientists give green tea the edge since its effect lasts a week, compared to black tea which works for one day only.

Grapefruit Juice-Drug Interactions Still Pose Risks - By Randy Dotinga

American nurses are getting a reminder that grapefruit juice is notable for more than its ability to make you pucker: In some cases, it can spell big trouble for people who take certain prescription drugs.

Grapefruit juice can interfere with the body's absorption of some two dozen medications, from the cholesterol-lowering drug Lipitor ( news -web sites ) to erectile-enhancing Viagra. While warnings appear in the information given to patients, they're easy to miss, said Amy Karch, a clinical associate professor of nursing at the University of Rochester Medical Center who wrote an article warning about the risks in last month's issue of the American Journal of Nursing .

"A lot of people rely on their health-care providers to alert them to anything that would be really important, but it is so hard to keep up with all of the constantly changing drug information that there probably are doctors who are not aware of the possibility," Karch said.

But don't rush to throw out your carton of grapefruit

Memory Training Helps Kids with ADHD

A computer program that improves one type of memory appears to help kids with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), new study findings suggest.

After around 40 kids with ADHD completed more than 20 days of training using the computer program, their parents reported they had significantly fewer problems with attention and hyperactivity, both immediately and three3 months after the program ended.

The form of memory the program addresses is called "working memory," study author Dr. Torkel Klingberg of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden told Reuters Health. This type of memory is what we use to keep information in our minds for short periods of time, and to complete day-to-day activities, the researcher noted.

"When you walk into a room and suddenly find that you have forgotten why you went in there, it's because your working memory failed," Klingberg said.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that working memory is impaired in kids with ADHD, Klingberg added. "These deficits can explain why they forget the 'internal plan' of what they are supposed to do next, or forget what they should focus their attention on."

To investigate whether training aimed at improving working memory helps kids with ADHD, the researchers asked 53 children with ADHD between the ages of 7 and 12 to complete working memory exercises using a computer program.

Laughter Is Good Medicine

As a traffic safety consultant, I often gave talks to organizations on accident prevention. One night after I spoke to a PTA group, the program chairperson thanked me profusely and gave me a check for fifty dollars.

"Giving these presentations is part of my job," I said. "Could I donate the money to one of your causes?"

"That would be wonderful," she gushed. "We have just the program that could use it. We're trying to raise money so we can afford better speakers."
