  • As many of you -- I have had lower back pain for years, and in my normal Beth way I have ignored it or (...don't tell anyone!) medicated it with NSAIDS off and on, and heat, and exercise, and stretching. AND GOD DAMN IT, IT HURTS. Source - Healio NSAID use is contraindicated in gastric bypass patients as it can cause serious ulcers. I started popping them like candy recently. No. good.

Findings from the new study, "Does Taste Perception Change After Bariatric Surgery?", were presented here at the 31st... more

  • I might be doing something ... right by my daily doses of unsweetened cocoa! I have serious memory issues if you did not notice, on account of the epilepsy, and I assume that someday I'm going to be in a home for the memory impaired. So every time I see a study like this -- I go OOOOH! LOOOK! THIS! I don't take them very seriously, but I read them ALL. Firstly, it was sponsored in part by a chocolate candy-maker. And, yeah. But check it. The brain area outlined in yellow is the hippocampus; the dentate gyrus is shown... more

  • Via - The View & Chris Christie in the news: The New Jersey Governor was recently seen at a GOP fundraiser showing off his 85 lb. weight loss from last year’s lap-band surgery. Whoopi said at first he said his weight was no one’s business. Nicollethinks if Chris Christie wants to run for President his health is everyone’s business as he has to have the stamina for the job. Nicolle is a big fan of Chris Christie and observed that even Republicans who don’t want him to become president should “want our field to be as populated as possible,... more
