Ten million of us take vitamins regularly whether for general health or specific conditions. And we spend a whopping 175 million a year on supplements and pills which contain antioxidants that are claimed to help combat disease. But despite all the promises, the pros and cons of vitamins and supplements are still very debatable and studies show that some can be bad for your health. Debatable: We spend 175million a year on vitamins and supplements but some can be bad for our health Just last month U.S. researchers discovered the routine practice of taking calcium and/or vitamin D supplements to protect against bone loss caused by hormonal therapy for prostate cancer could actually be making patients conditions worse. You should always speak to your doctor before taking any supplement, says Professor Hilary Powers, head of human nutrition at Sheffield University. Some illnesses can alter the way our body uses vitamins and minerals.

Why TCM products are seen as poison pills abroad

In July, the Swedish National Food Agency also found extremely high levels of arsenic in Niuhuang Jiedu Pian and warned other European Union countries that it constitutes a serious health risk. Since the beginning of this year, TCMs have repeatedly been questioned, mainly by foreign official and private drug testing organizations. Apart from being potentially toxic, another common concern is that the herbal remedies often contain pesticide residue. Two Greenpeace reports issued on July 1 said that out of the 36 kinds of frequently used Chinese herbal products tested in Germany, France, Britain, the Netherlands, Italy, the United States and Canada, pesticide residues were detected in all but one of the products. Among those cited were nine of China’s leading drug brands, such as Tong Ren Tang and Yunnan Baiyao.

Sleep disorder multiplies depression risk

Café Scientifique: Sleepless Nights: Sleep Problems and Disorders

The data was drawn from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), an annual survey conducted by the CDC. Health.com: 7 tips for the best sleep ever Six percent of men and 3% of women had received a sleep apnea diagnosis, the survey found, while 7% of men and 4% of women reported breathing problems on at least five nights per week. Depression was assessed using a standard questionnaire that asked how often during the past two weeks the participants had “little interest or pleasure in doing things” or felt “down, depressed or hopeless,” for instance. Five percent of men and 8% of women had scores indicating “probable” depression, according to the researchers. A complicating factor is that the effects of depression and sleep apnea can be difficult to distinguish, says psychiatrist Michael Weissberg, M.D., co-director of the insomnia and sleep disorders clinic at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, in Denver.

Sleep Disorders, Attention Problems Linked

The most common complaints are loud snoring, disrupted sleep, and excess daytime sleepiness. Obstructive sleep apnea causes repetitive blockage of the airways during sleep. The muscles that keep the airways open collapse and air cannot get to the lungs. Medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes are associated with obstructive sleep apnea. Smoking is also linked to this sleeping disorder.

Children’s mental-health commission debuts Monday

Mental health and psychosocial support programme in Libya: “Building Back Better”

But Muriel Jones, executive director of the Federation of Families of Central Florida a nonprofit family-support organization for those dealing with mental illness said the needs are still “huge.” In particular, Jones hopes to open a respite-care facility for weary family caregivers and set up a mobile youth-crisis unit. The latter already available in a few communities across the nation is a team of mental-health professionals who would answer 911 calls along with police when a child is having “a breakdown or meltdown,” Jones said. “They come in to de-escalate the situation,” said Jones, whose son was diagnosed with schizophrenia at age 14. “Then if the child is truly in crisis and needs to be hospitalized, the team would call an ambulance to come and take him there. That’s a big difference from having a police officer come to the home or school and put the child in handcuffs.” Jones, too, will serve on the commission.

Mental health courts seek to treat, rather than jail

Misurata, Libyas third largest city, was the scene of some of the heaviest fighting. The city remained under siege for months and was increasingly targeted by shells and missiles. Misurata was also historically a city with no mental health services at all, not even a psychiatrist. Mental health services in Libya had been extremely inadequate and couldnt meet the urgent needs of people who suffered during and after the conflict, says Dr Baderdin Najjar, Director of Libyas National Center for Disease Control/Ministry of Health.

Mental health act will help inside, outside of school

She told the story of a man who barricaded himself alone in his house, prompting a neighbor to call the police, who surrounded the house with guns drawn until the man managed to tell them that he was one of Judge Lewis people, the meaning of which police have come to understand. Almost every court session, a defendant shows some small sign of improvement, such as wearing a tie. But most people show how difficult solving serious mental health problems can be, along with all the absurd, sad and complicated situations that can arise. There was the case of the elderly man who sometimes lived behind the Tick Tock liquor store in Langley Park, Maryland, who had come through Lewis courtroom so many times that she wondered whether he might be trying to come back deliberately. What is going on? she said to the man after he had been charged with shoplifting a utility knife, a screwdriver, a Snickers bar and two pairs of reading glasses from Target. Maybe I like court too much, he said. Maybe, Lewis said.

More From Beauty High: 0 Image via Istock By: Augusta Falletta, Beauty High It’s no secret that we’re in a serious, committed relationship with hair and makeup. We spend time together every day, try new things and settle in on our favorites, regardless of how long it takes to find them.

Jane Cosmetics Announces Retail Partnership with ULTA Beauty

The bar is set too high and the attempt to bridge the gap between what is going on inside the mind and what is happening in reality starts to feel like a rebuke. You feel lesser than the sites and sounds of the dazzling islands with their crystal clear waters and you begin to long for a more tumultuous setting, say an industrial park or war zone, which more aptly reflect your inner state. Not fitting in to the surroundings you feel like an angry exile, like a high school delinquent who, as they say, marches to the beat of a different drummer, and feels so much an outsider that he or she can’t develop the school spirit that derives from a sense of belonging. You decide that this is not your time and that some day you will return more prepared for paradise.
