In the U.S. alone, vitamins and minerals represent a multibillion dollar industry. Marketing has supported these ideas, however research has been sparse.

FDA Cracks Down on Placenta Products

5 to say that it is still expecting between $54 million and $60 million in revenue this year. Dr. Stephen Badylak, who heads a regenerative medicine laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh, said placental tissue is somewhat mysterious, but it does actually have healing properties. “There are so many goodies in these naturally occurring materials that it’s virtually impossible to isolate a particular growth factor and say that’s what’s making a wound heal quicker,” Badylak said. Still, human placenta cells could potentially carry greater health risks than placental cells from pigs or cows, which are sometimes used in other products, because they can spread human viruses and bacteria, Badylak said.

Home Health-care Workers Win New Job Protections

Experts say that makes sense because baby boomers are aging and more people are looking for ways to get care for chronic conditions in their own homes rather than nursing facilities. The jobs are largely low wage. The median pay for home health- and personal-care aides in 2010 was $9.70 an hour, or $20,170 a year, according to the BLS. The Labor Department says 90 percent of direct-care workers are women, and 50 percent are minorities. Is wage veto a win for Wal-Mart? Washington, D.C., Mayor Vincent Gray explains why he vetoed a bill that would require big box retailers to pay workers a minimum wage of $12.50.

Eliminating Copays Helps Reduce Blood Pressure In Kaiser Permanente Study

“If we were able to keep everyone’s blood pressure under control in the United States, the number of new strokes and heart attacks would go down just exponentially,” he said. Two features likely played a big role in the program’s success: In 2005, the region started using a single generic pill combining two common blood pressure drugs, lisinopril and a diuretic. The pill is less expensive than taking the two medicines separately, and easier to use. And in 2007, the program began offering free follow-up visits with medical assistants, rather than doctors, checking blood pressure readings. Besides charging no insurance copayment, these brief visits were available at more flexible times, increasing chances that patients would stick with the program. “Patients really liked it because it was shorter, more convenient and more affordable,” Jaffe said.

‘Hypervigilance’ about race linked to blood pressure

It doesn’t appear to be genetic, and while things like diet, exercise, and reduced access to health care may contribute, we think that a tense social environment, the sense of being treated differently because of your race, could also possibly explain some of what’s behind the higher rates.” Cooper says the issue of such hypervigilance and race consciousness has drawn more public attention in the wake of the killing of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, in Florida. Her own African-American son, she says, is very aware of his surroundings. “It’s stressful for him to walk around thinking at any time someone might think he’s doing something wrong just because of his race,” she says. “That’s just something he lives with. If you don’t live with it, maybe it’s hard to understand it.
