  • September 23rd Affordable Health Care Changes:  http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/728665
  • Flu season is approaching.  If you have not had a flu shot, especially if you are older, it is advisable to get a flu shot and possibly a pneumonia shot.  Prevention is key.  Some chiropractic doctors don't believe in immunization.  I am not one. 
  • If you have a lot of allergies, make sure you are checking your air conditioning/heating filters regularly.  We are coming into cotton processing season so there will be a lot of allergens in the air.
  • From Futurity:  "Researchers have discovered the crystal structures of pumps that remove heavy metal toxins from bacteria, making them resistant to antibiotics."  This may allow them to desire less resistant drugs.
