I personally do not think it would make that much of a difference to raise the age to 21. The drinking age is 21, yet there is countless minors getting drunk on the weekends. If the smoking age were to be 21, minors would find other ways to get e-cigs just like they find other ways to get alcohol for parties.
I second what carisacl above me said.
"We have a certain amount of parents that purchase e-cigs for their kids"
This is apparently the biggest cause of teens obtaining these things, given that they are already illegal to purchase as a minor.
If a complicit adult is willing to enable a child to buy one, little can be done about it. Perhaps you need to spend more time preaching to irresponsible parents than villifying a miracle product.
Read Oliver Sacks' excellent book, "Hallucinations." A wealth of info about hynopompic and hypnagogic sleep disorders. Many people experience a brilliant flash of light, also. That's fairly common, actually.
I'm waiting for someone to suggest that we decriminalize all substances and tax them. Maybe it's tougher to do that in response to a story that points out the human cost of such policies.
I have experienced EHS throughout my life. Never knowing what this was I thought it was all in my head, excuse the pun, that it was something I was imaging.
After being jolted awake wondering "what the hell that sound was!!???" Was someone in my house??!! Did somebody shoot a gun??!!! When my pulse returned to a some what normal state and my mild headache went away was I finally able to fall asleep again.
I am glad I read this article and thank you Brian Sharples for identifying the BOOM in my head! It is reassuring to know it's not just me.
I have had EHS episodes my whole life. Sporadic but many many times, as well as experiences of ISP and myoclonic jerks. I thought it was weird! Have told many friends &,family but never thought of telling my Dr. Fantastic article!

Thanx for the article! To track what my younger brother is doing on the Internet I use http://www.refog.com . I`m 100% sure he is in safety even if I`m not with him.
Can't wait for Spokane Vegfest on August 8!!

Hello Ben! Please give me a ring whenever you have a moment.
Thanks so much,
It is unfortunate that a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Breastfeeding was not also consulted for this article. The ENT world is struggling to catch up with the tide here. Families are often better educated on optimal breastfeeding practice than are some of the practitioners they rely on, and ankyloglossia is a big deal to a mother who wants the best for her child. Some mothers have even been told, having had treatment refused because the provider doesn't agree there's a problem, that "no one will think badly of you if you stop breastfeeding because of the pain". It shouldn't hurt a mother who has good technique, to feed her baby. At all. Circumcision is FAR more interventive, yet is given almost no serious concern. Posterior ties are the least likely to be identified, are perhaps the most likely to cause difficulties, and are not "rare" in the breastfeeding difficulty world. They are hard to see, and must be evaluated functionally, both on and off the breast, and by feeling in and out of the baby's mouth. According to both the US Surgeon General and the CDC, relatively few physicians have the training to knowledgably assess a feed at breast (most MDs have never had ANY formal breastfeeding education, and thank goodness for those who took it on themselves, such as the members of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine). If the baby cannot extend his tongue to his lower lip AND elevate his tongue nearly to his palate, BOTH WITH HIS MOUTH WIDE OPEN AS IS NEEDED AT BREAST, the baby is unlikely to be able to breastfeed effectively. This puts both the baby and the mother at risk of premature weaning, which puts them both at increased risk of everything from diabetes to breast cancer. There is terminology, diagnostic, and treatment confusion, due mostly to the rapid increase in breastfeeding rates and research and the slow rate of implementing change of practice, but there is very poor funding for breastfeeding support. There likely ARE opportunists looking to make money on this issue, but it's surely NOT the International Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) who identifies the problem, and struggles alongside the moms to get treatment. These families want to be heard, to have their concerns taken seriously, and to get help, not platitudes.

As we age, our appetite decreases. This is why most of the seniors eat less protein. Somehow, there's also an impact when an elderly person loses appetite due to illness and side effects of medications. Lack in protein can affect the psychological system; this is one of the many effects when an aging person has protein deficiency. Keep in mind that protein strengthens the muscles, as it lessens the chance of falling. (Here's an article about Fall Prevention for Seniors in Long Term Care: https://www.infolongtermcare.org/fall-reduction-strategies-in-long-term-care/) Another fact is, research shows that people who are regularly consuming protein will have a longer lifespan.

This is a great intiative, dental healthcare is one of the most expensive treatments. this is the precise reason there is an increase in dental medical tourism specially in India. I came across this video of where a patient from Australia shares her experience at Dentzz - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9m_IcT7L7uY

What a great read! I'm also in healthy life recovery. I also feel like "I'm eating vegetables in a candy store." I will definitely check this place out in the near future.
I heard there's a dodgeball night coming up! When and where?
I personally do not think it would make that much of a difference to raise…
