 Poison in the Medicine Cabinet


Acetaminophen overdose is the leading cause of liver failure in both the United States and Great Britain. Fifty percent of all acute liver failure in the U.S. is attributed to acetaminophen consumption. While many of these cases result from an overdose, either intentional or unintentional, even “correct dosage” has been linked in some cases to liver damage, liver failure and death. In the United States, approximately 56,000 liver injuries requiring emergency treatment, 26,000 hospitalizations and 458 deaths per year are attributed to acetaminophen consumption.

One of the main problems with this popular drug is how easy it is to overdose unintentionally. The FDA is well aware of the dangers of acetaminophen and recommended stronger label warnings in 2002. In 2009 it recommended that the standard dose be lowered.

Health Benefits of Eating Fish

The health benefits of fish are widely publicized in the media, and you’ve probably heard about the importance of getting more omega-3 fats (fish oil).

Eating oily fish like salmon or taking fish oil supplements can lower your blood triglycerides, raise your HDL cholesterol (the “good” cholesterol), lower your blood pressure, reduce inflammation, protect you from heart disease, and improve your mood. Fish oils may also be beneficial in cancer prevention.

Secrets to Being a Healthy Snackaholic


Secrets to Being a Healthy Snackaholic

Do you know that the average American consumes almost 25% of their daily calories from snacking? In fact, snacking is the leading cause of childhood obesity. Fortunately, it is also the easiest habit to change. By addressing WHAT snacks you are eating, you can greatly change the quality of your food intake. Keep these snacking tips in mind to maintain a health-conscious diet:

  • The size of the snack should be the right size- less than 100 calories is a good guide.
  • Pick foods that are low in fat and sugar and high in fiber and water. Ex: an apple is better than a bag of chips.
  • Aim for fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain snacks.
  • Try to eliminate foods and drinks that list sugar or corn syrup as one of the first ingredients.
  • Put snacks in small plastic containers or bags so they are easy to carry in a pocket or backpack. Putting snacks in containers helps you eat the right size portion.
