Contact Lens Solution tainted:
Looks like Bausch & Lomb’s Renu with MoistureLoc solution is under suspicion of facilitating an eye fungal infection that causes temporary blindness. The contact lens solution maker has voluntarily stopped shipping this particular lens solution.
If you wear contacts be very careful. I have been using a brand of solution for disinfection that I get at Wal Mart. It is cheaper than the expensive B&L and Alcon solutions and seems to work just fine.
I’ve been wearing contacts since I was 12, so about 25 years now. I’ve recently started washing my eyes with and eyecup, lemon juice and distilled water. I just use a single drop of the lemon juice. Don’t do this yourself, consult with your eye doctor if you are having any eye problems.
I love washing my eyes. I admit it sounds kind of gross, but people used to do it back in the early 1900s. You can get eyewash and an eye cup at just about any drugstore.
After wearing contact lenses all day, my eyes enjoy getting ‘washed’. They feel better. It is nice do do upon waking up too.
Here is a list of Contact Lens Vendors.
You know it is amazing how much Bird Flu turns up in the NEWS. It seems like everyone is afraid.
I guess if I were to get bird flu, I would jump for colloidal silver at my local drug store. Silver has the ability to kill both bacteria and viruses. But, you’re not likely to hear doctors talk about it. For one, it is available without a prescription.
One of the side effects of too much silver in the body is the skin turning blue. I don’t think anyone wants that.
Honestly though, I haven’t been sick in over 6 years. I ‘ve been practicing Falun Gong exercises and I can’t help but think it has an influence over the health of my body.
I have a book on Natural Cancer Treatments. It has over 400 pages and is very informative.
Of course, if you have cancer you should consult with your physician, but it certainly is nice to have additional information at your fingertips!
People have used many methods to combat cancer. And there are many theories out there on cancer causes too. Who is right and what works? That is the question.
Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle is the number one downloaded book on Clickbank.
I recently did a post on weight loss, check it out.
Personally, I don’t think it is that hard to lose or control weight. It is a matter of a little bit of knowledge. There are foods that raise metabolism. It is also prudent to avoid high fat and sugar combination foods. Just take a look at the snacks people it and you will discover the great majority of the problem.
Obesity is a big problem in the United States. I’ve recently read that lawmakers are trying to outlaw junk food from schools. It seems that 18% of boys and 16% of girls are overweight. This number is up from 14% previously.

It appears that the FDA has approved a patch to control Attention Defecit Disorder.
The patch contains methylphenidate. This is what is in Ritalin.
In my humble opinion, too many kids are on this drug. I sometimes wonder if this is about controlling the behavior of kids more than about whether they actually have ADHD or not. And frankly, it scares me.
Anyway, there is an ADHD herbal remedy that I would personally choose if I had ADHD over prescription medications. But that is just me, consult with your physician if you or your loved one suffers from ADHD or ADD.
Merck, a pharmaceutical company was ordered to pay 4 Million on a case on Vioxx, a painkiller that may be linked to heart problems.
One thing I learned in school that I will pass on to you is the generalization:
“All drugs have side effects”. Make sure you know what the side effects are for any drugs you are taking. There should be information that comes with your prescription that details the possible side effects of a drug.
Why not go one further and ask your pharmacist about side effects, before you purchase the prescription.
