Sites We Like: The Office Blog of Dr. Bill Glaros

While there seem to be blogs for every interest imaginable (“People Brushing Their Teeth in Places Other Than the Sink” anyone?), active blogs on biological dentistry seem few and far between. In fact, Technorati lists only two: this one and Dr. Erwin’s The Holistic Dentist. But we were recently introduced to another that’s up and […]

Sites We Like: Fruits & Veggies – More Matters

As we’ve said before, we get a lot of media releases. Most of them go right into the trash, usually because they’re inappropriate to this blog’s focus, uninformative or seem to have little purpose beyond trying to get a mention for some product.

Now It’s Kids and Cholesterol while We Miss the Big Picture

So the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has revised its position on children and cholesterol. Now they say that children as young as two should be screened for cholesterol if they are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD). The AAP also lowered the age at which they indicate statins – from 10 to 8 […]
