Airport Fever Screening for Ebola Symptoms

I might not be the most popular person for saying this but I think that these fever screening tactics are justified and a good idea.  This day and age, you can never be too careful.

The vast majority of passengers from those countries would be subject to this additional layer of screening, Earnest said. He emphasized that most effective way to stop the spread of Ebola is to stop people exhibiting Ebola symptoms from flying, and that takes place most effectively in West Africa. That will counter and has countered the spread of Ebola, he said, adding that pre-departure screening is only part of the process.

Pet Activity Monitor For Your Dog’s Health

This is cool – wonder if I can get my husband to wear it too!  Haha!  I wonder what my local vet thinks of this.

The MIT Sloan alumnus realized he was unable to monitor his dog‘s movements while he was away at work, and had little way of understanding the health of his furry friend over time even when he was at home. The 8-gram bone-shaped device, which sits on a dog’s collar, is similar to fitness trackers people use, and is breaking the mold of a new market as wearable technology becomes increasingly popular. The device monitors movement, assessing every 60 seconds whether a dog is resting, active or playing.

Adjusting To A Hearing Aid

Looks like I am getting to be at the age where I am more and more in need of a hearing aid from DFW Hearing Solutions.  Yup, just like my mom!

Hearing loss is one of the most common and least visible afflictions in the United States. According to some estimates, as many as one in five Americans are affected and that number is increasing. Thankfully, due to the benefits of modern technology, hearing loss is also one of the most highly treatable problems that exist.

Free Medical Care For The Less Fortunate

I think that this is great!  I read another recent story about a guy with a herniated disc that was helped out this way as well.

One by one, the winning lottery numbers were called, 20 Arlingtonians who suddenly had a shot at medical care they could not afford anywhere else. More than 90 patients-in-waiting had lined up outside the Arlington Free Clinic for the drawing whites, blacks, Hispanics and Asians, many with children in tow. All had little money and big medical worries.

Are Phytoceramides the New Fountain of Youth?

I guess you can say that this may be an interesting supplement for skin care.  Phytoceramides is something I need to read up on a bit more.

The recent approval from the FDA for phytoceramides, a supplement that has been referred to as the new fountain of youth, has upset the entire dermatology community on a global level. Ceramides are a powerful compound that reside naturally in the skin. As people age, the ceramides diminish and in this process, the skin begins to dehydrate and people lose that full look from their younger years.

Expediting J-1 Visas for Physicians From India

A good step in the right direction in my opinion.  These doctors will make a great addition to our heath care.

The J-1 is a temporary nonimmigrant visa that international physicians use to work in U.S. medical residency programs. The problem, primarily experienced by doctors who are set to do their residencies in the U.S., has created major dilemmas for the physicians and the American hospitals at which theyre set to work, according to a press release. In many instances, the long delays in the issuance of visas has resulted in hospitals being forced to withdraw offers to foreign physicians who had already accepted, effectively preventing these doctors from entering the United States at all.

I Guess I’ll Drink More Coffee!

Time to fire up the coffee maker because this girl needs a coffee fix.  Luckily, according to this article, it’s good for you!

Scroll down for video The new graphic has drawn together research on the health benefits of both coffee and tea. One study found that coffee didn’t have any overall benefits for health but did no harm, while tea had clear benefits. People who drank black tea four times a day for six weeks were found to have lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, one study found. However, adding milk to the tea may stop the benefits it has against cancer, according to other research.
