Is Salt Actually Good for You?

A new development in the battle against salt is leading some scientists to question whether a low-sodium diet is actually healthy for you.

In a study published Wednesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association, Belgian researches "estimated sodium intake of nearly 3,700 participants, with an average age of about 40, by measuring sodium in their urine at the beginning and end of the study."

What they found was that the people with the lowest amount of sodium intake "had no greater protection against high blood pressure after eight years than those who consumed the highest levels," according to the Boston Globe.

Pharmacies – Can’t live with ‘em, Can’t live without ‘em

We are a family who does not get sick. Seriously, my kids didn’t go to the doctor once in 2010. So, because it is rare we have to go to the doctor, it is rare we deal with a pharmacy.

Well, last week my son was sick and was prescribed antibiotics. When I went to the pharmacy (I won’t name it), I got there at 7 P.M. The prescription had been faxed over at 4 P.M. but it wasn’t ready yet. The tech asked me, “Do you need the prescription tonight?” and I said yes.
