The hidden history of presidential disease, sickness and secrecy
In his second term as president, Dwight Eisenhower looked like an old man. He’d had a serious heart attack in 1955, requiring extensive hospitalization. Ike later suffered a stroke. In contrast to his seeming senescence, his successor, John F. Kennedy, seemed vibrant and flamboyant. The reality was that Eisenhower was not really that old — […]Related:Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia: Can being on the campaign trail literally make you sick?Newest superbug found in a Connecticut toddlerAs a mental health provider, I ask all my patients about guns.

Working While Sick Isn’t A Hillary Thing. It’s An American Thing.
It’s not just Hillary Clinton. Working while sick is a widespread American phenomenon, ingrained in our public policy and embedded in our workaholic, and often male-dominated, office culture. By attending an event on Sunday while sick with pneumonia, Clinton succumbed to “presenteeism,” or showing up to work when you’re really not feeling well. The goal: to demonstrate that you’re a hard worker and that you’re not fragile or weak. That’s a particularly important notion for the country’s first major-party female presidential nominee ― and judging by some reactions, Clinton s...

How Effective is Oseltamivir?
Discussion Oseltamivir (Tamiflu®) is an oral neuraminidase inhibitor of influenza viruses types A and B. It first came on the market in Switzerland in 1999 and currently is used around the world along with other neuraminidase inhibitors to treat seasonal and pandemic influenza. Oseltamivir is easily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, and circulates to the liver where it is converted to its active metabolite oseltamivir carboxylate (OC). In adults approximately 75% of the oral medication is converted and it then travels to the upper and lower respiratory tracts. Unchanged oseltamivir is eliminated in the urine. ...
