New Bill Aims to Keep Children ’ s Makeup Asbestos-Free
U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell introduced legislation this week that would mandate a warning label on cosmetics marketed to children unless stricter testing can show they are free of asbestos fibers. The legislation was sparked by reports in 2017 that trace amounts of tremolite asbestos were found in cosmetics marketed to girls by national retail chains Claire’s and Justice. Although both companies quickly pulled products off store shelves, they also disputed the findings and later produced lab results showing their merchandise was safe and free of asbestos. “Parents across the country should have the peace of mind i...

HealthWatch: Which Plant-Based Milk Is The Most Nutritious?
BOSTON (CBS) — Millions of Americans have turned to plant-based milk as an alternative to cow’s milk, but which variety is the healthiest? Researchers from McGill University found that while none of them proves as nutritious as cow’s milk, soy milk reigns supreme when compared to rice, almond and coconut milk. Soy milk is a better source of protein and contains phytonutrients which may have some anti-cancer properties. Almond milk has larger amounts of healthy fats but less protein. Coconut milk has virtually no protein, and rice milk has the weakest nutritional value. Rice milk is higher in calories and ...

Conclusion This trial provides valuable evidence about the effects of a nutrient drink, Souvenaid, on memory in individuals with early signs that they may develop Alzheimer's disease.

They did find less brain shrinkage and slightly better cognitive scores in the experimental group, but this still didn't lead to any reduction in the number who were diagnosed with dementia by the end of the study.
