Each week, Dr. Peter Janiszewski selects several notable posts from Health and Clinical Research. He blogs at Obesity Panacea.
This week was full of fantastic posts, making my job that much tougher. Here are some of the absolute best discussions:
- Medication for anxiety and depression often comes with an unfortunate side effect: sexual dysfunction. Bill Yates of Brain Posts discusses new research suggesting a possible solution to this all too common problem.
- In her second great post on the topic, Melinda Wenner Moyer of Body Politic asks: If BPA exposure is so low, why should we be worried?
- According to a fascinating post by Neurosceptic, reboxetine is the worst anti-depressant ever! This topic is also eloquently covered by Michael over at Good, Bad, and Bogus.
- So you like coffee, do you? Psychothalamus blog highlights a study suggesting coffee may acutely increase your chances of stroke. Why do I think this finding won’t have much of an impact on your habit?
- PalMD of the White Coat Underground takes a look at the health effects of the smoking bans which have swept across North America over recent years.
That is some good readin’! Check back next week for some more riveting discussions of health and clinical research!
