Health Care Debate

Debate around health care is heating up once again in various states in the US after Guardian, a major insurance provider in the US, decided to discontinue its policies in various states in an effort to cut costs.  This is going to affect many people including Ian Pearl who relies on his insurance to cover his 1-million-dollars-a-year health bills. 



Alcohol and Hangover Myths

Hangovers are awful, some so bad that you vow never to touch another drink again, but is the secret to avoiding a hangover as simple as changing the alcohol you drink? Not surprisingly the answer isn't simple, while the type of alcohol you drink can have an effect on how rotten you feel the next day it's not the biggest factor.  It is widely accepted that consumption of alcohol impairs our cognitive abilities, but now research suggests that the after effects of alcohol also impairs our ability to think and do things; all the more reason to cut back on drinking habits.



Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

Every day, we experience sound in our environment, such as the sounds from television and radio, household appliances, and traffic. Normally, we hear these sounds at safe levels that do not affect our hearing. However, when we are exposed to harmful noise—sounds that are too loud or loud sounds that last a long time—sensitive structures in our inner ear can be damaged, causing noise-induced hearing loss. Today's lesson focuses on how to take care of our auditory system, so that we can hear perfectly later in life.
