Pro Bono: Unraveling DEA Regulations on EMS Use of Controlled Substances
To say that Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) requirements for ambulance services and EMS providers are confusing is quite an understatement. Even for lawyers used to understanding complex laws and regulations, DEA regulations rank at or near the top of the list of hard-to-understand and complex regulations.

Ambulance services are able to register as mid-level practitioners with the DEA. DEA regulations define a mid-level practitioner as "an individual practit...

Why one Scottsdale podiatrist thinks you should replace sugar with fat
Dr. Richard Jacoby doesn't eat sugar anymore. Instead, he has turned to fat. In fact, he puts butter in his coffee. It was difficult to change his diet, but what he has learned about sugar over the past several years was enough to get him to change. He put it all in a book, called "Sugar Crush," sharing 15 years of research all wrapped up in 800 pages. No, don't worry, you don't have to read 800 pages. HarperCollins Publishers edited it down to 256 pages. Basically, he concluded that sugar… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Hospitals headlines)

Good Ways To Exercise & Care For Your Most Neglected Body Part
By Dorene Internicola NEW YORK, March 30 (Reuters) - Feet are a part of the anatomy many exercisers ignore while pounding the treadmill or honing a headstand, but fitness experts say they are the very foundation of physical well-being. A quarter of the body's bones are contained in the feet and ankles. It is where most movement begins and, much like a building's foundation, it determines stability. "The feet are perhaps the most neglected complex structure in the body," said Katy Bowman, biomechanist and the author of "Whole Body Barefoot: Transitioning Well to Minimal Footwear." ...

Some parents of older children will become concerned when they notice excessive or abnormal shoe wear. The differential diagnosis in rare cases also includes rheumatologic, neurologic, neoplastic and genetic syndromes such as Ehler-Danlos and Marfan syndrome. The different...
