Cannabidiol slashes seizures in kids with rare epilepsy, study finds. Professional Village Compounding Pharmacy wanted to share this with you. Cannabidiol, which is found in marijuana plants, reduced the number of convulsive seizures in children with a severe and often fatal epilepsy disorder, according to research published Wednesday in the New England Journal of Medicine. Among children taking cannabidiol, the decrease in the frequency of convulsive seizures -- which involve a loss of consciousness, stiffened muscles and jerking movements -- was 23 percentage points greater than the decrease in seizures among children taking a placebo. https://tinyurl.com/l3sv5of

Professional Village Compounding Pharmacy wanted to share this very important message with you.
Buying Pet Medicines Online: Ensuring Products are Safe. If you’re purchasing medications for your pet online to save money or for convenience, there are Internet sites that represent legitimate pharmacies.

But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has found that there are others that sell unapproved pet drugs and counterfeit pet products, make fraudulent claims, dispense prescription drugs without requiring a prescription, and sell expired drugs. Any of these practices could mean that the products you are buying could be unsafe or ineffective for your pet.

It’s long been used to fight alcoholism. But this drug kills cancer, too, study finds. For years, the drug has been given to alcoholics.

If alcoholics drink even a little liquor after taking disulfiram (commercially sold as Antabuse) a tidal wave of unpleasant symptoms will wash over them: Everything from throbbing head pain to vomiting, from chest pain to anxiety. Even choking could result, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, with symptoms starting to crop up within 10 minutes of drinking.

So while disulfiram can’t cure alcoholism, the drug works by making even a drop of alcohol hurt — which hopefully discourages drinking.

But now, scientists say the drug has another promising use: Cancer fighting. http://www.sacbee.com/news/nation-world/world/article188462784.html

Breathing in Delhi air equivalent to smoking 44 cigarettes a day. It was early on Tuesday morning when residents in the Indian capital of Delhi first began to notice the thick white haze that had descended across the city.

Initially viewed as a mild irritant, by mid-week its debilitating effects were evident to all, as the city struggled to adapt to the new eerie, martian-like conditions brought about by the pollution. https://tinyurl.com/ydbwwqky
