Secondhand Smoke May Be Related to Hearing Damage

By Dr. Jerry Mixon August 17, 2013

Secondhand smoke damages hearing in children. A recent study of 1500 kids between 12 and 19 years of age demonstrated that the more exposure they had to secondhand smoke, the worse their hearing tended to be. By measuring the amount of cotinine in the blood of these adolescents, researchers were able to calculate the extent of their exposure to secondhand smoke.

Overall it was found that 60% of the kids with secondhand smoke exposure had some degree of hearing loss. The best current theory is that the secondhand smoke is actually damaging the auditory nerves in the still growing young people.

We often think of secondhand smoke as triggering asthma or causing breathing problems in younger people. But it now appears that secondhand smoke is actually causing neurologic damage. Here’s one more good reason why every smoking parent should quit.

There are also some indications that green coffee

Are you losing your MIND?

By Dr. Jerry Mixon September 12, 2008

Brains SHRINK with age, but why?

The average brain shrinks about 0.5mm per year after age 50; those with Alzheimer’s may lose up to 2mm annually. This loss is “normally” accompanied by a decline in memory and mental agility. Sure, losing your mind is a “normal” part of aging. But normal is not my goal. We all know what I think about being normal, it STINKS! The fact is, your brain does not have to shrink as you get older. There are those rare individuals who have robust brains into their 80s and even 90s. If you want to be one of them, here is how you go about it.

First of all, give your brain the Omega 3 fats it needs for repair and maintenance. About 70% of your brain is made of Omega-3 fatty acids. Taking enough of LMC’s Ultra Omega will give you the raw material to work with. The next step is to stimulate your body to use that raw material for brain
