Air: Doctor Recommended

By Dr. Jerry Mixon June 27, 2008

Separating the science from the silly is one of the things I like to turn my attention to every now and again. Luckily there’s no shortage of silly out there to work on. When I started researching water I was amazed at how many people thought they needed an ionizer and how little was generally understood about the purpose of ionization.It reminds me a bit of some of the remedies from the turn of the 19th century when they used to make beds with an electrical current running through them to promote fertility, or drank radioactive solutions of radium to promote good health.

The macula is a small area in your eye with the highest concentration of visual receptors.

Welcome to the first Longevity Medical Clinic Online Journal!Here you will find health and medical news, the very latest in leading edge technologies, and my opinions and comments from a modern medical perspective. I find this very neat! I just love the idea of a place where I get to rant about whatever I choose. Who wouldn't? So here it is:The subject today is Toad Venom. I know, this is not the hottest topic on your mind. But remember, I get to rant on whatever I choose! I read an article today about a 35 year-old fellow in New York City who died after eating what was purported to be an aphrodisiac made from toad venom. This stuff is being sold under a host of names such as "Chinese Rock, Jamaican Stone, Love Rock, etc. The word on the street is that this stuff is an aphrodisiac and hallucinogen. They take toad venom, mix it with an organic resin and sell it to people with more ready cash than brains. Some folks smoke it, others lick it, a few totally
