Are We Ready for OTC Genetic Testing?

Jan 10, 2011 ● By Anonymous

Apparently not. Briefly, on Thursday morning, we posted a story about a new genetic test kit going on sale at Walgreens.  We mentioned that the Food and Drug Administration was investigating the company’s claims.  Well, it seems the FDA’s involvement may have made Walgreens a little wary. Walgreens has announced that it will hold off on the sale of the kits.  “We’ve elected not to move forward with offering the Pathway product to our customers until we have further clarity on this matter,” the company’s statement read.

Smart Foods for Kids

Jan 10, 2011 ● By Anonymous

Spending lazy days in fields picking blackberries and peaches…eating ripe tomatoes right off the vine…selecting fresh produce in baskets at a local farmers market. Some kids spend the summer break nourishing their growing bodies…while others snack on processed, chemical-laden, and high-sugar foods out of bags and cans. In either case, one thing is certain: It’s up to parents and caregivers to lead by example and provide kids with nutritious, wholesome foods year-round.

Putting off getting that flu shot? You’ve just run out of excuses.

Jan 10, 2011 ● By Anonymous

The Anne Arundel County Department of Health is making it super easy to receive this year’s flu vaccine. And you do need this year’s formulation. The 2010-11 trivalent vaccine fights the A/California (H1N1) strain, the A/Perth strain, and the B/Brisbane strain. (When we asked, the woman at the Department of Health didn’t seem to know why the flu is now coming up from down under.) These are the strains of most concern to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) this year.

Learn About the Dark Side of Online Degrees

Jan 07, 2011 ● By Anonymous

The demand for higher education has not only sparked a rise in students, but also a rise in scams. Online “diploma mills” or “degree mills” are fraudulent businesses disguised as legitimate colleges that award fake college degrees. Diploma mills attract two types of people: 1) Individuals who are genuinely trying to earn a college degree and are unaware that they are enrolling in a scam and; 2) Individuals who are aware that they are committing fraud, but are only concerned with getting a fake college degree.

Distance Education: Is it for you?

Jan 07, 2011 ● By Anonymous

For those of you who prefer hardware to hard copies, tech-savvy distance education alternatives are just for you. Online classes and satellite campuses were created for students who cannot travel far for their education because of family responsibilities, work conflicts, financial limitations, or other factors. And although the exaggerated tales of hiking uphill both ways to get to school goes away, you can still brag about perfect attendance.
