Spinal surgery for spasticity: How Adam got to like his legs again
Adam gets reassured just before surgery. Adam Pendergrass used to trip and fall dozens of times a day. “Every pair of pants we have has holes in the knees,” says his mother, Dahlia. “But Adam falls really well. He would stand up, shake himself off and say, ‘I’m OK!’” At preschool, Adam couldn’t sit crisscross on the floor. He walked with a crouched gait, and to climb the stairs, he had to hold the railing and lift one foot at a time. But none of this was a big deal at first. He knew he had something called cerebral palsy, but it was OK. All the kids at preschool wanted to try...

What Temperature Should Food Be Cooked To for Botulism Prevention?
Discussion Clostridium botulinum is a gram-positive, motile, anaerobic rod. C. botulinum produces spores which themselves produce a toxin that causes paralytic disease which may be fatal.

Common anticholinergic drugs like Benadryl linked to increased dementia risk
This study is another reminder to periodically evaluate the all drugs you’re taking.

These drugs obviously aren’t helping.” Many drugs have a stronger effect on older people than younger people. With age, the kidneys and liver clear drugs more slowly, so drug levels in the blood remain higher for a lon...

Doctor: Botox Breast Lift Is ‘Gimmick’
BOSTON (CBS) – Thousands of women get breast augmentation surgery every year, but some doctors are looking for less invasive ways to enhance a woman’s breasts. WBZ-TV looked into two new trends and whether they really work. Botox has been used to get rid of frown lines for years and now some doctors are applying the paralyzing agent to breasts.

Cold hands: Could it be Raynaud’s?
I used to enjoy cold weather and cold-weather activities. Not anymore. These days I find it harder and harder to keep my hands warm when I’m outside, even with an excellent pair of gloves. Sometimes my fingers turn white and become numb. Those are the hallmarks of Raynaud’s syndrome (or disease or phenomenon). Named after the French physician who first described it in 1862, Raynaud’s is a problem in the body’s arteries. In most people with Raynaud’s, small arteries that bring oxygen-rich blood to the fingers spasm and close down in response to cold or stress. This reduces or cuts off blood flo...
