Ramadan Thus Far

Found a great new blog written by an Army Blackhawk pilot in Iraq. His post on 'Ramadan Thus Far' contains the following line I just love about why things are harder for terrorists in the Sunni triangle:

"" It's hard to execute a good plan when you're dead.""

UT El Paso: Herbal Safety

UT El Paso: Herbal Safety

" "In the past decade, there has been an increased interest in herbal medicines and treatments, both from the mainstream medical community and the general public. One need look no further than the cold drink section of the local supermarket to see the various herbal supplements that are prominently displayed on many drink labels. In an effort to provide critical evaluations of these various herbs and related products, the University of Texas at El Paso has created this important website in order to disseminate information about research findings related to herbal use and to provide these findings in both English and Spanish."

New York Expands Drug Pricing Website

New York Expands Drug Pricing Website:

"" rxNew York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer rolled out an expanded version of his drug pricing Web site yesterday, hoping to assist those New Yorkers lacking health insurance or prescription drug benefits to comparison shop. From Long Island Newsday:

The online reference guide includes the 25 most popular prescription drugs on the market, and, for the first time, has prices from pharmacies in all of the state’s 62 counties.

”With information from this Web site, consumers, especially seniors on fixed incomes, the uninsured and those lacking adequate prescription drug coverage, can comparison shop and keep their costs as low as possible,” Spitzer said in a prepared statement.

Under current New York State law, each pharmacy is required to carry an expanded version of this guide, known as the Drug Retail Price List, which covers nearly 150 prescription drugs, and customers are able to view it at any time.

Menstrual Migraines and Period Control

Menstrual Migraines and Period Control:

" "Not all headaches are created equal: migraine headaches affect more than twice as many women as men. Interestingly, in 60-70% of women, the headaches are related to the menstrual cycle. Period-related headaches that occur from one week to 3 days before the start of your period are called premenstrual migraines. The ones that occur from 3 days before the start of your period to 2 days afterward are called true menstrual migraines....
