Men, women do see things differently: Study

For the last two days, I’ve posted on the controversial topic of homosexuality. On Sunday I posted What if your son asks, “Am I gay?” and What the Bible says about homosexuality. Yesterday I posted one of my most read blogs in some time, How I wish the homosexuality debate would go, and the Christian Medical Association’s Statement on Homosexuality. Today […]

Yesterday I blogged on What if your son asks, “Am I gay?” and What the Bible says about homosexuality. This morning’s blog was How I wish the homosexuality debate would go. Tomorrow I’ll tell you a story of How I addressed […]

The two chapters I submitted were not printed […]

The two chapters I submitted were not printed in the book, as the publisher felt the […]

New diet drugs are new versions of old off-label treatments

The Wall Street Journal reports that although some doctors who treat obesity patients hailed the FDA’s recent approval of Qsymia and Belviq – the agency’s first diet-drug approvals in more than a decade – as an advancement in weight-loss treatment, many weight-loss specialists have been prescribing variations of the two drugs off-label for the past […]
