    With many of us chained to a desk for hours a day before heading home to slump in front of the telly, we're spending much of our time on our bottoms. And it's having an impact on our health, a growing body of evidence suggests. Last month, for instance, it emerged that spending an extra hour sitting a day (for 13, rather than 12, hours) is linked to a 50 per cent greater risk of being disabled. And this was regardless of whether the participants - all over 60 - also did moderate exercise, according to the U.S. study published...

    LONDON: Elvis Presley's death has been the subject of many conspiracy theories with some believing that years of drug misuse led to the end of the 'King of Rock N Roll'. But according to Nick George Nichopoulos, Elvis's doctor for the last 12 years of his life, the singer died of chronic constipation, which was also responsible for his drastic weight gain in the years before his death. The doctor, who attempted to resuscitate Elvis on the day of his death, said that it wasn't until the autopsy that he realised how severe the constipation had been, Daily Mail reported...

    It has been widely reported that Elvis Presley died in 1977 from cardiac arrhythmia, an irregular heartbeat, possibly brought on by drug dependency, obesity and a weak heart. But the music legend's longtime friend and physician, Dr. George “Nick” Nichopoulos, has put pen to paper for the first time and revealed his belief that it was chronic constipation that actually killed the King of Rock and Roll.

    Constipation is one of those topics few like to talk about, according to WebMD.com. If you've suffered from this problem, though, you know it can be both painful and frustrating. Almost everyone gets constipated at some time during his or her life. It affects approximately 2% of the population in the U.S. Women and the elderly are more commonly affected. Though not usually serious, constipation can be a concern.

    Cure for killer bug - but there's a catch KATE FOSTER IN THE annals of medical history, this could go down as one of the most effective but stomach-churning treatments ever devised. Scientists seeking a cure for a deadly superbug have successfully treated patients using human faeces. Trials in a Scottish hospital have shown patients suffering from the Clostridium difficile bug can be cured using 'donor stool' administered via a tube through the nose into their stomach. Clostridium difficile was last week at the heart of a damning report into cleaning failures at the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust...

    Special to FreeRepublic ^ | 19 May 2007 | John Armor (Congressman Billybob)
    There are certain categories of ads on TV which offend me, and no doubt you, whenever they appear. There are the impotence ads. (Known as “E.D.” to its friends.) Plus the constipation/diarrhea ads. Plus the mobility (scooter) ads. The implication is that older men can’t get it up, can’t get it out, or can’t get it moving. Throw in the Alzheimer ads, and we can’t remember whether we’ve done any of that. I say “we” because all these annoying ads are my fault. Yes, mine, and I apologize. Yes, I am falling apart. It was only a month ago that...

    The honor code is carved into stone at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point: "A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do." The words express the integrity expected of those who lead our men and women into battle, and they have a purpose: Officers who cannot be trusted have no place in positions of responsibility, not when the consequences of such a character flaw can be death, not when the American people put such confidence in those in uniform. But somehow, it is hard to square that admirable code of honor with the Army's behavior...

    University Park, Pa. -- A Penn State analysis of the diets of a nationally representative sample of U.S. preschoolers, ages 2 to 5, shows that more than three-quarters of the children are not getting enough fiber. Children who consumed the most fiber also had the most nutrient-rich diets. However, all children in the study ate fewer dairy servings than recommended by the Food Guide Pyramid. "There is clinical evidence that children with low fiber intakes are at risk of chronic constipation," said Sibylle Kranz, assistant professor of nutritional sciences who led the study. "However, there are also other reasons to...

    Despite the barrage of television commercials that insist otherwise, a diet low in fiber is usually not the cause of constipation, and taking fiber supplements is probably not the cure, according to a new study. In fact, a fiber supplement can actually make symptoms worse in some patients, particularly the most severely afflicted. A review study published in the January issue of The American Journal of Gastroenterology suggests that many other common beliefs about constipation are also little more than durable myths. According to the American College of Gastroenterology, constipation is the reason for at least 2.5 million doctor visits...

    I have entered into the den of iniquity to seek redmeption from the evil that has overtaken us. I ache and groan not lightly but deeply into my very bowels at the doom that has overtaken us. One man, one party has stolen the soul of this nation and transformed us into those who kill and plunder. Oh, the grief of one more fraud that has installed this tyrant. Why must we endure such a pernicious monster? Deliver us from this monster. Take this cancer from us.
