Topic - E-Cigs Have Many More Carcinogens Than Cigarettes I’ve written articles on drclaudia.net about the dangers of electronic cigarettes and vaping. E-cigarettes have been on the US market since two thousand six and only now has the FDA requested testing on the thousands of ingredients that go into making the many flavors used in them. The latest research indicates that e-cigarettes have ten times more cancer causing ingredients than tobacco products. We now know that vaping can...

Topic - Your Mouth, Life And Death You don’t think much about your mouth unless something goes wrong, but your oral health is very connected to your physical, emotional and social well-being. You use your mouth to express affection, feed yourself and defend yourself both verbally and physically. Two hundred years ago, a baby who couldn’t coordinate their tongue and jaws along with breathing in order to feed, died. Even now, an infant’s suck response reflects their overall motor...

Topic - Snoozin’ The amount of sleep you need is genetically determined. If you’re from a family of “sleepers”, you’ll simply need more sleep than others. Three factors influence why we sleep the way we do. First, circadian rhythm slows at night. Your energy naturally goes down just like the sun. Second, melatonin surges at night and causes the anticipation of darkness. And third, sleep pressure increases when daylight subsides. Sleep deprivation leads to weight gain. Leptin, the...

Topic - Overlooked Issues In College, Year One There is a serious, but overlooked issue for first year college students. Make sure you and your student understand the school’s policies about drug and alcohol use. If they have a medical emergency and require intervention as the result of using substances, will they be automatically released from the school? Are they taking prescription medications that need to be locked up? Before going to college, your student needs to talk with their...

Topic - The Benefits Of A Garage Decades ago, most cars had basic parts. Now, we have lot of computers running cars and it makes it tough for the “do-it-yourself” mechanic. But, the basics are still there. Oil and filters, brake pads, drums and rotors, transmission fluid, power steering fluid and lots more still need regular attention. I recommend that your teenagers, girls and boys, learn basic car maintenance and emergency procedures. Once they get on the road, it’s up to them because...

Topic - The Important Stuff Happens Early The important stuff happens early in a child’s life. By age 5, kids have a fairly stable sense of self-esteem. Self-esteem is the degree to which you feel positively about all aspects of yourself-intelligence, competence, physical attributes and how you compare to others and whether or not you have what it takes to get the job done. Kids know when they’re doing well and when they’re not. Give them as much of the truth as they can handle. If...

Topic - Waiting For A Job Twenty-three million Americans between the ages of 18 and 34 are living with their parents due to unemployment and high student debt. This is the highest number in the modern era. I have an idea that’s been working pretty well over the past 10 years. I ask these young people to offer their services free of charge. The strategy is for them to work at a business in which they majored. I suggest that they let the human resources department know they want to see...

Topic - Near Drowning For every drowning, there are six hundred near drowning events. Near drowning is described as “almost dying from suffocating under water”. It’s the last stage before death. They’re alive when they get to the hospital. If a nearly drowned person is cold, check for a pulse for one minute before starting CPR. Be careful moving their head and spine due to injury. Remove clothing and cover with a blanket. The Heimlich maneuver doesn’t help. Most kids who experience...

Topic - Pets and Autism Dogs have been used as support for years, starting out as guide dogs for those with vision problems. More recently, they’ve been employed to treat anxiety associated with post-traumatic stress disorder and for those with medical conditions such as seizures and diabetes. Some dogs can sniff out cancer. Recent research tells us that all kinds of pets can benefit those with autism. Pets attract others into interactions which develop confidence, assertiveness and...

Topic - Morbid Curiosity And Social Media Humans have a very powerful need to know. This need has launched us into outer space, to the depths of the ocean, to advances in technology and medicine. It also has a morbid side where we spend way too much time on social media learning about our “ex’s” latest girlfriend, the popular kids from high school and our co-workers. We just have to know the knowable even if what we learn is painful. Humans can’t cope with uncertainty. “It’s a blessing...

Topic - My Spare Time Is Between 2 And 4 AM When I was a working mother, my spare time was between 2 and 4 a.m. I’d see the mother in the market doing four things at once. If I could, I’d tell her that she’s got to make changes. I’m not gonna tell her what doctors told me…rest, get some exercise. We’d both laugh at such ridiculousness. I’d tell her to learn to say no to anything optional. Save your strength. Make small changes. Back down a little at a time. Prioritize. Decide how YOU...

Topic - Adult Coloring Book. Really? At first, I was really critical about adult coloring books. Even mean-spirited about them, after all, who’s got time for this nonsense? But then, I had a different idea. You can sit down and color for just a few minutes and let your mind wander. It’s freeing because it’s not goal oriented. Letting your mind wander and shifting gears from what you were doing to just coloring releases dopamine. Dopamine contributes to the reward system and when...

Topic - Smoking Marks Your DNA We’ve heard many times how much smoking damages your heart and lungs, but did you know it can leave a “mark” on your DNA so that it changes the way your genes work? It changes your DNA so that you’re set up for gut, bone, dental and skin problems. Smoking has far greater impact than we ever knew. There’s good and bad news. The good news is that your genes can recover within five years of quitting, but some genetic changes persist even thirty years later,...

Topic - Autobiographies And Biographies Are Important The stories written about people’s lives by themselves or by others are incredibly inspiring for kids. It’s not Hollywood making up stories about courage, strength and the ability to keep moving forward despite all odds, it’s the real deal. Hearing their own words and feeling their feelings make the stories come alive. Many of these books are offered in a “young readers” version. People of all races, backgrounds and many fields of...
