    Women, you may not believe it but there may be a real health benefit to hot flashes!  New research from Brigham and Women's Hospital suggests that women who have early menopause are at lower risk for heart attack and death.  This is in sharp contrast to women who have never had hot flashes or those who experience symptoms later in menopause.  Over 60-thousand women were followed over ten years for this study.  Those with early hot flashes and night sweats had a 17% lower risk of stroke and an 11% lower risk of heart disease and death.

    Although doctors can't explain why, the good news is about three quarters of women experience hot flashes or night sweats early in menopause.

    Bad news for energy drinks

    Last updated 6 years ago

    By: Dr. Steve Salvatore, Co-Owner of The American Academy of Personal Training

    When you need a quick pick-me-up do you reach for an energy drink?  Think twice.  There are new charges that the popular drinks may not be everything they claim to be.  A study just published in the Journal of Pediatrics found that the drinks did not improve energy, boost weight loss or improve concentration; and they may actually be dangerous.

    Those most at risk include children and teens, especially those with a history of diabetes, seizures, and mood and behavior disorders.  Most energy drinks contain between 70-80 mg of caffeine, double that of most cola drinks, as well as guarana – a plant that contains caffeine, taurine – an amino acid, vitamins, herbals supplements and sweeteners.  The American Beverage Association responds, “This literature review does nothing more than perpetuate misinformation about energy drinks, their ingredients and the regulatory process.”
