I don’t have time for a regular post today but I’ve found some good links recently that need to be shared:
1) Marjory and Gordon Cameron have a new blog about Marjory’s breast cancer. Gordon is a family doctor and Marjory is a nurse. Their blog has some great information about breast cancer treatments and research a lot of which I don’t have time to cover here. So if you are looking for more specific information or want to follow one person’s story about how they are dealing with their situation – you should read their blog: Beating Breast Cancer
Good Luck Marjory – I hope it all goes well!
2) You may not have heard of Barbara Ehrenreich. She’s written a few books. One of which I read some time ago – Nickel and Dimed – which is about the struggles many people in the US experience working minimum wage types of jobs. She went undercover and worked at some of these places to see if she could really make ends meet, etc. She has a newer book now too, which I haven’t read yet. Well, she has a blog now too. She has a regular web site too, I don’t know why she didn’t put her blog there though instead of blogs.com. Here’s the link: Barbara’s Blog.
3) Here’s another health story I just came across today but don’t have time to look up information to blog about it: Plastics chemical alters female brains. A brief – very brief – summary is that a substance found in polycarbonate plastic (bisphenol A) such as the resin lining food cans and dental sealants can leach out and that bisphenol A behaves a lot like estrogen. More research needs to be done though, but if bisphenol A does get into our food and does cause health problems it is a concern. To soon to say for certain though. The abstract for the paper is here:http://endo.endojournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/en.2006-0189v1
Thanks for making me feel welcome and putting up with my Dr. Who obsession! (A Dr. Who blog – what do you think? Should I do it?)
