Mom's Exercise Does Not Affect Baby's Nursing

Mon Apr 22, 1:26 PM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Although nursing moms are often told that exercise could make their milk temporarily taste "sour" to their infant, a new report suggests that this may not be true.

It seems that breast-feeding women can continue to exercise without offending the taste buds of their infants, according to researchers.

Pregnancy Stress Linked to Child's Blood Pressure

Mon Apr 22, 2002

By E. J. Mundell

NEW ORLEANS (Reuters Health) - A new study in animals suggests that women who experience a few days of emotional stress very early in their pregnancy may pass on a higher risk of adult high blood pressure to their child.

But there's good news, too--the researchers believe that women who take even a brief "time out" from worry may eliminate the effects of stress hormones on their offspring's cardiovascular health.

Angry Men at Risk for Early Heart Attack

Mon Apr 22,2002

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Hot-tempered men are more likely to develop premature heart disease and suffer an early heart attack compared with their more placid peers, study findings indicate.

The study of more than 1,000 men found that those who responded to stressful situations with feelings of anger and irritability were three times more likely to be diagnosed with heart disease before they turned 55. These men were also five times as likely to have a heart attack before the age of 55.

Imagine No Restrictions On Fossil-Fuel Usage And No Global Warming

ORLANDO, Fla., April 9, 2002 - Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Los Alamos National Laboratory are studying a simple, cost effective method for extracting carbon dioxide directly from the air - which could allow sustained use of fossil fuels while avoiding potential global climate change.

Power Plant Emissions Blamed for Premature Deaths

By Cat Lazaroff

WASHINGTON, DC, April 18, 2002 (ENS) - Almost 6,000 premature deaths can be blamed each year on pollution from 80 power plants in the Midwest and Southeast, charges a report released by a consulting firm and a former enforcement officer from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The study looked at the emissions from plants run by eight utility companies cited by the Justice Department in 1999 and 2000 for violating the Clean Air Act.

Global Warming Fills Glacial Lakes to Bursting

GENEVA, Switzerland, April 18, 2002 (ENS) - At least 44 glacial lakes high in the Himalayas are filling so rapidly they could burst their banks in as little as five years, an international team of scientists has found.

Scientists with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), and their colleagues from Nepal and Bhutan, are warning that the lakes could overflow, sending millions of gallons of deadly floodwaters swirling down valleys, putting at risk tens of thousands of lives.

'Modern Meat'

With Doug Hamilton Producer, "Frontline"

April 19, 2002

The hamburger has become our national food: Americans eat more meat than any other people in the world, and the average person devours three hamburgers a week. And today's beef costs 30 percent less than it did in 1970. But how much does the average American know about the beef they're eating?

More States Loosening Wiretap Restrictions

By Dick Kelsey, Newsbytes

WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S.A.,
April 17, 2002

Proposed changes to state wiretap laws triggered by the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11 would give states added surveillance power that could erode civil liberties, said a review of state-level legislation released today. The review, conducted by a Washington-based non-profit that tracks legal and constitutional issues, examined how states approve and implement wiretaps. The Constitution Project seeks to determine whether laws compromise individual liberties.

THE LAST SIGHTING

Health Sciences Institute

April 16, 2002

Dear Reader,

There's no other way to say it - the FDA strikes again.

In between extorting hundreds of millions of dollars to approve drugs, only to yank many of them off the market a few months later (not to mention placing unconstitutional gag orders on people trying to inform the public of the health benefits of simple vitamin E), they are now making it nearly impossible for you to get your hands on one of nature's most powerful - and proven - pain relievers.
