Are you a Minnesota woman living with (or fearing) #HIV/AIDS? You're invited to the Minnesota Department of Health's Empowerment Tea this Friday:

Is child leashing "humiliating" to children? Or is this a ridiculous debate? Come see what I think and then share your thoughts:

Would a "puppy mill" law cut down on cases like this one? If convicted, James Best and Tara Best, right now, face only misdemeanor charges.

When you're desperate to win an argument, I suppose you'll lie about even the smallest, dumbest detail.

Case in point--a tweet I got this morning claims that the #Guttmacher studies credits "people having less sex" with the recent decline in #abortion rates.

The study says no such thing and I can only try to imagine why anyone would say it does:

Hello to you
 
Today In Child Safety, we look at a new study being presented this week at a major medical conference for OB/GYN practitioners.

The study will show, using data from the CDC, that #homebirthing is far more dangerous for the newborn than hospital birthing. Under very specific conditions, that risk can be more than 10-fold, in fact.

One interesting takeaway--the study does NOT blame the #midwife:

Could it really be this simple? Could the whole OxyElite Pro horror really come down to an ingredient from a fruit that's been eaten for centuries?

Today In Pet Safety, we look at Washington and its DoH, which is requesting that Washington residents send in #ticks to help medical experts track tick-borne diseases. (Why don't more states do this?)

As this graphic from the CDC shows, female-to-female transmission of HIV is exceedingly rare but as the recent Texas case proves, it's still possible: http://www.todayinhealthnews.com/6/post/2014/03/female-to-female-hiv-case-reported-in-texas.html

Doctors are now being encouraged to counsel all lesbian couples, especially when 1 partner is HIV-positive.

New research says that young kids prefer #dogs over #cats. Does this speak to how we maximize our "mothering" instincts? I dunno' but you gotta' admit it's interesting:

US Abortions are at historic lows. Better #contraceptives ? The #recession ? Likely both, say study authors.

But one thing IS clear--access to #abortion  via medication is NOT fueling a stampede of women wanted to terminate pregnancies.

We've all experienced a flush while angry or the sensation of being cold while we're sad. Now, scientists understand more about those sensations and how they correspond to predictable bodily changes:

Introduction
My name is Lisa Barger and once upon a time I took the field of "alternative" medicine very seriously.  I never envisioned I would be spending most of my career critiquing the work of others but I quickly realized that someone had to step up and expose the quacks, charlatans and scam artists in my industry.

I won't tell you what to do, what supplements to take or what brands to buy what what I will do is give you the tools to make an informed decision.
