Ace is just wonderful :o) LOL...not that she knows I've said that, but if by chance she stops by, she'll see it. I've shared a lot of information there, been lead down a fair amount of great bunny trails from her blogging. I have a couple of folks I love to visit because I know I will find out things that the common folk simply don't have time to hear. Things that in the long run, I really need to know and be prepared for. And no, she didn't even pay for this advertisement ;o)
Today was one of those informative days.
The FDA wants to regulate Tylenol? Tylenol? A prescription for simple Tylenol? Great timing there Big Brother.
I had decided to stop doing prep posts because frankly at this point....either you do or you don't. BUT...I decided to throw one more flag out there...you decide...
Remember over a year ago when children's cold and flu medications were taken away?
FDA may put restrictions on Tylenol
ADELPHI, Md. – The makers of Tylenol, Excedrin and other medications are trying to dissuade regulators from placing new restrictions on their popular painkillers, including possibly removing some of them from store shelves.
Here is the full article http://www.healthzone.ca/health/article/658416
The weird thing is, this isn't being very widely reported. AND if this goes through you will need a PRESCRIPTION to take two extra strength Tylenol. Oh, AND this may go through for things like cold and flu meds as well. OHH! And just in time for socialised medicine..YIPPEE!
OH, AND it is coming up on what is predicted as the biggest and baddest flu season ever...pandemic level 6 remember?
OH AND there appears to be a dog strain of the flu and one that is medication resistant...and the deaths are still rising.
Danes find drug-resistant swine flu strain
ATLANTA – For the first time, a case of swine flu has proven resistant to Tamiflu – the leading pharmaceutical weapon against the new virus, international health officials said Monday.
The resistance was seen in a patient in Denmark, who has recovered.
"The goods news is they just found one," said Dr. Carolyn Bridges of the U.S. Centers for Disease control and Prevention.
It appears the strain developed in a patient who was taking the drug to prevent illness, and it has not spread to others. That's a much better scenario than if the patient had not been taking Tamiflu and picked up a drug-resistant strain already spreading through the public, said Bridges, associate director for science in the CDC's influenza division.
Also, it is not a mutation that includes pieces of both seasonal flu and the new pandemic form of the virus, according to Roche, the Switzerland-based pharmaceutical company that makes Tamiflu. Scientists have been worried about the new swine flu swapping genes with seasonal or other types of flu and perhaps mutating into a more dangerous or more infectious form.

Hmm, sounds like a great time to outlaw a fever and pain reducer.....
You make your decision...if you wait, don't be surprised when the shelves are bare and you need a L....O.....N.....G visit to a doctor to get a tylenol.
Anyhoo, off to post more fun stuff like how over a million bats have died from a fungus....
Many Blessings :)
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
