Usually, I discuss a news story or case in the blog. Today, two quick-hitters relating to a product, and some medications.
First is a discussion of some antidepressants. Specifically, this relates to Celexa, Lexapro, Luvox, Paxil, Prozac and Zoloft. All are prescribed for the treatment of depression.
Studies have shown an increased risk of heart birth defects in children, born to mothers who took these antidepressants during their first trimester. Most of the heart defects observed in these studies were atrial or ventricular septal defects .These are conditions where the wall between the right and left sides of the heart does not completely develop.
The Second blog discussion relates to Talcum Powder that is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson. It is sold under the name of Shower to Shower baby powder. A Harvard medical doctor says that he has studied the link between talc and cancer for 30 years and believes that talc is the likely cause for as many as 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer each year. To date, Johnson & Johnson has failed to issue any warning relating to this doctor’s findings.
Now to switch gears to pic o’ day, I thought that I would go with some “truth humor”.
