Monday's health links

Welcome to June, everybody! The sun is shining somewhere today, so get outside and go for a walk. :-)
  1. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day might be too much - let your body tell you when to drink and how much! CBC.
  2. Using cancer "signatures" to help predict response to estrogen-lowering therapy. News-Medical Net.
  3. FDA approves new drug for use in treating HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer. Wall Street Journal.
  4. Using ginseng to help deal with cancer-related fatigue. WebMD.
  5. Looking at HIV drugs to help target breast cancer treatment.
  6. Swedish study finds that the Atkins diet may be bad for the heart. The Atlantic.
  7. Taking a run at the excuses we use not to exercise. Seattle Times.
  8. Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen with five medical breakthroughs they find exciting: omega-7 fatty acids might be a new good fat, combining cardio and strength training on the same day is good for you, stress is bad for your DNA, ceramides may provide protection against cancer, and a skin-cancer drug may provide benefits against Alzheimer's disease. OregonLive.
  9. Fighting cancer? Cooking for someone who is? Trying to prevent a recurrence? The Cancer Project has an online meal planner complete with shopping lists to make meal preparation easier. Now, what you really care about - yes, the recipes actually look yummy. There are curries, soups, salads, stir fries, cookies, and dips. Indian dishes, Thai, Italian, Mexican, and Japanese. A quick scan found Mexican Corn Chowder, Fettuccine with Grilled Asparagus, Peas, and Lemon, Oatmeal Waffles, the kid-friendly Monster Smoothie, Potato and Cauliflower Curry, and the one I'm most interested in doing this week, a mixed-vegetable burrito stuffing called Calabacitas. Looking for interesting quinoa recipes? Lots here, including Quinoa Tacos, Quinoa Loaf, Quinoa Pilaf, Fruited Breakfast Quinoa, and Quinoa Burgers. The Cancer Project.
Just a reminder, Father's Day is this Sunday. Go give your dad a hug and say thanks. And take him a good book or something. Bottle of wine. Fishing lure. You figure it out - but make him feel special. I love you, Dad.
