Barb's newest book...

 

 

Who Knew?

Amusing anecdotes, quirky quips, and practical pearls

about our bodies and our health

 

Barb’s newest release is chock-full of amusing anecdotes, quirky quips, and practical pearls about our bodies and our health. Chapters include By the Numbers, Weighty Issues, Boy oh Boy, You Go Girl, Hormonal Chaos, Medical Minutiae, Sense-sational, Funny Pharm, In the Loo, and more. You’ll be constantly exclaiming—WHO KNEW? A few examples!

…One in five adults (20%) has admitted to urinating in swimming pools. Red eyes associated with swimming are not caused by the chlorine used to sanitize the pool. Red eyes are caused by chloramine, a chemical that is created when urine combines with the chlorine already in the pool. In fact, the stronger the pool “smells like chlorine”, the more contaminated it is with urine. WHO KNEW?

…Every single strand of human hair can support 3.5 ounces of weight. Big deal, you scoff. The average head of hair has between 100,000 and 150,000 hairs—you do the math. The entire head of hair could actually support 16 TONS. WHO KNEW?

…The first testicular guard, the “cup,” was used in hockey in 1874. The first helmet to protect the brain was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain was also important. WHO KNEW? We ALL knew.

Buy the book. It’s fabulous. $30 (USD) $35 (CDN).

How about some NON-Pharmacologic therapies? Why is coffee good for patients with NASH? Why is sleep a prevention measure for Alzheimer’s dementia? Can turmeric help prevent Alzheimer’s dementia? What are the common interactions between alternative agents and medications? How can we "leach" potassium out of high-potassium vegetables to help prevent hyperkalemia when patients are on drugs that increase serum potassium?

Fun Facts: Why don’t woodpeckers get brain damage? A gene found in fruit flies make them crave alcohol…the gene is called happy hour. How many latex condoms do you have to string together to bungee jump 98 feet?
