Hunter Biden’s addiction shocked his family. Has your family had similar problems?

Hunter Biden, the president's son, is on trial in federal court for falsely claiming in a gun application that he had not used illicit drugs. Testimonies from his ex-wife and his ex-girlfriends describe his drug-fueled character; look for his dealer on the streets; his large cash withdrawals from the bank. Hallie Biden, his brother Beau's widow who was dating him in the fall of 2018 when the gun purchase occurred, spoke of his erratic behavior, possession of rocks of crack and cocaine "the size of ping-pong balls, or bigger, maybe” and how she frantically urged him to go to rehab. She, like Mr. Biden, is in recovery. I write about addiction for the New York Times and have spoken to countless families who have shared harrowing experiences. I'm working on an article about how the Biden...

Personal conflicts, even violence, are not uncommon in long-term care

Those most likely to be involved are younger and able to walk, "able to move and put themselves in harm's way," Dr. Pillemer said. Most had at least moderate cognitive impairment. The studies also found that incidents occurred more often in specialized dementia units. “Memory care has positive elements, but it also puts residents at greater risk of assault,” Dr. Pillemer said. “More people with brain disease, uninhibited people, gather in a smaller space.” Because so many, both perpetrators and victims, suffer from dementia, "sometimes we can't say what started it all," said Leanne Rorick, director of a program that trains staff on dementia intervention and reduction. voltage. “An initiator is not necessarily someone with malicious intent.” A resident may be confused about which room...

New Nutrition Guidelines Put Less Sugar and Salt on the Menu for School Meals

Connected media - Associated media The Sugar Association, a trade group, said it supported limiting added sugars in a weekly menu but called applying limits to individual products like flavored dairy products “arbitrary.” The group also warned that the new standards might lead to increased use of artificial sweeteners, which is not addressed but could have its own health ramifications. Schools will need to reduce sodium in lunches by 15 percent from current levels and in breakfasts by 10 percent by the 2027-28 academic year. This was scaled back from a proposed reduction of 30 percent by the 2029-30 school year.

Can You Recycle Medical Devices Like Insulin Pens, Inhalers and Covid Tests?

Linked media - Connected media “What we really need is an evolving, specialized recycling infrastructure alongside the big five — paper, glass, plastic, metal and cardboard,” said Mitch Ratcliffe, publisher of the website Earth911. “That conversation is really picking up steam in some particular categories, but not in medical equipment at all.” A few designers and companies are exploring alternatives that are more reusable or safer for the environment. Inhalers The inhalers that many people use for treatment of asthma or other respiratory ailments contain potentially recyclable materials. But those with leftover medication or propellants may also be hazardous if incinerated or compacted. The steel or aluminum canisters containing the medication should generally be returned to a pharm...

What to Know About Lead Poisoning in Children

Connected media - Associated media How do I know if my children have high blood-lead levels? Lead exposure can go unnoticed until levels accumulate, doctors say. High levels of lead can result in stomach pain, vomiting, fatigue, learning difficulties, developmental delays and even seizures. Pediatricians recommend blood tests for infants and toddlers who live in homes built before 1978 or have other risk factors. Medicaid programs and some states require screening, but it is not typically advised for children older than 3. While officials have said there is no safe level of lead, parents do not automatically need to worry if traces of lead show up in a child’s blood test. The average blood-lead level among young U.S. children is under 1 microgram per deciliter of blood. “I don’t thin...
