Most important things in life: Health and Hope

WHICH IS A REASON TO AVOID THEM IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE FLU: Emergency rooms overcrowded with flu patients.

TINNITUS NEWS: Science has a solution for that constant ringing in your ear. “The condition doesn’t have a cure yet, but those suffering from it might not have to endure all the phantom ringing, clicking and hissing for life, thanks to a device developed by researchers from the University of Michigan. Their creation treats tinnitus by using precisely timed sounds and weak electrical pulses designed to persuade damaged nerves in the region of the brainstem called dorsal cochlear nucleus into working correctly again.”

SO IXNAY ON THE AXSPRAY GIVE MEN HOPE:  It turns out that smell is the way to a woman’s heart.

A PRISONER in Spain has woken up in alarming fashion in a body bag in a hospital mortuary after being declared dead by three doctors.

Gonzalo Montoya Jiménez woke up with marks across his body in preparation for autopsy on Sunday after spending a short time in a cold room.
“They had already marked the body to open it with the scalpel,” relatives told Il Mattino.
According to local media, he woke just hours before the post-mortem examination was due to be undertaken. Scientists are calling it “an exceptional case of apparent death”.

WHY IS OBESITY GETTING WORSE? “It’s so serious now that close to 40 percent of Americans are obese. The average woman in the United States today weighs about 168 pounds, or roughly the same as an average man in 1960.”

This stupid article, however, jumps directly from telling us that obesity is a worldwide problem, to telling us that it’s directly related to a unique “sickness in American society.” And yet it’s written by a professor of endocrinology, who presumably is supposed to be able to think logically.
