Lee Dye: Samuel Stupp has a bunch of mice that used to drag their hind legs behind them when they crawled around his Illinois lab, but they have miraculously regained at least partial use of their rear legs. Astonishingly, their severed spinal cords have been repaired, at least partly, without surgery or drugs. All it took was a simple injection of a liquid containing tiny molecular structures developed by Stupp and his colleagues at Northwestern University. Six weeks later, the mice were able to walk again.

AP: An ingredient in beer seems to help prevent prostate cancer in lab experiments, Oregon researchers say. The trouble is you'd theoretically have to drink about 17 beers a day for any potential benefit, and no one's advising that.
Randy: Tempting excuse.

CNN: Researchers report that drinking coffee cuts the risk of cirrhosis of the liver from alcohol -- by 22 percent per cup each day -- but they stopped short of saying doctors should prescribe coffee for that reason.

Marissa Mayer, VP of search products at Google: Health is an interesting one -- keep your eye out for that next week.
Wed, 19 Apr 2006 14:10:57 GMTIt's two months later and I'm still hanging in the 180s. Hockey season is almost over, which will help my calorie (read beer) in-take.

Feb 9th - 3 beer, 184 lbs, no exercise (bad).
Feb 10th - too many beer (bad), 183, 2 kms on bike.
This is an awful start.
Thu, 09 Feb 2006 15:57:59 GMT
I've decided that from now on I'm gonna blog my beer consumption, exercise and weight everyday (or whenever I remember). Maybe this will help me get down to 170 lbs and get me some life insurance.
Feb 8th - 3 beer, 182 lbs, 2 km on bike.
Mon, 06 Feb 2006 16:31:31 GMTAs I blogged last week, an insurance company rejected me based on my cholesterol level. I saw my doctor this morning and he told me the results did not concern him. That's the second time I've been rejected by an insurance company and my doctor was unconcerned with the results that led to the rejection. He says, I should lose ten pounds, exercise more and drink less, but I'm healthy. Nothing new. A relief and frustration.

Today I got the great news from my doctor that someone doesn't like my cholesterol level. In particular, the insurance company that I want insurance from. It seems every time I go to the doctor, I'm just fine. Go to an insurance company and I'm dying.
Update: It would seem beer reduces your cholesterol level. The week prior to my test, I didn't drink any beer, thinking this would positively affect my results.

That's five day in-a-row without beer. Two more to go. I'm getting a blood and urine test Thursday morning. This test will determine whether I get life insurance. I'm taking no chances.
Also, I've lost 7 pounds in those 5 days. Beer is heavy.
Sun, 08 Jan 2006 18:09:40 GMTI'm a big fan of beer, but last week my insurance agent called me up to for warn me that they'll be requesting a blood and urine sample. In order to get a good sampling, I've switch to only 0.5% beer. It's been four days now. I'm pretty happy that I can turn off drinking beer, like a light-switch.

During the Christmas feasts week, I broke 190 pounds for the first time this year. I've weighed in the high 190s in years past, but not this year, or at least till now. This makes my New Years resolution pretty easy to come up with. I'm gonna get below 180 pounds, so that next Christmas, after the feasts, I weigh only 185 pounds instead of 195. As a starter, I'm doing 10-20 sit-ups every morning.
Sat, 31 Dec 2005 20:25:38 GMTBeyond eating a lot of fish, curry and garlic, I've been pounded back the Orange Juice. On a workday, my morning includes 2-4 cups of coffee. On non-workdays, my morning includes 2-10 cups of O.J.

In an attempt to eat better, I'm really stressing the foods that are known to make me more healthy; fish, curry and garlic. My kids love curried salmon fillets with fresh-cut potato fries. The recipe is simple. No garlic in this recipe.
Cooking Fries: Add lots of margarine to a frying pan to keep the fries from scarring. Add fries to pan and cover. Turn fries every minute or two. Add salt, pepper and parsley as desired.
Cooking Salmon: Add lots of margarine to a frying pan to keep the salmon from scarring. Sprinkle to cover entire exposed side of Salmon. Turn. Sprinkle again. Continue turning the fish and battering it with the margarine/curry.

Randy: And fear sets in across the globe.
Sun, 30 Oct 2005 15:32:40 GMTOn the eve of Halloween, my annual onset of ear and throat infections have set in. I've been very virulent this year in preparing for his, but I fear it's happening regardless. I keep my nose very clean, have been taking nightly ear-drops and Cold-FX. Frustrating!
