YSK new study links coronary heart disease to vitamin C deficiency

This publication accepted March 17, 2015 shows an inverse relation between vitamin C intake and heart disease in transgenic mice.
In it they show; mice with the highest intake of vitamin C had the lowest depositions of Lipoprotein(a) in their arteries and the least atherosclerotic lesion development.
This publication deals a major blow to the cholesterol theory of heart disease.

So I've scanned some papers and I'm too lazy to type them,so I was wondering if there are softwares that read words from pictures and convert them into text documents.

Thanks in advance.

YSK about these things when trying to backlight your stone counter tops.

YSK about these things when trying to backlight your stone counter tops.

Today with LEDs becoming the norm in lighting, we are starting to see lighting options normally only seen in homes of the rich and famous spilling over to the home of us common folk.

That being said, you should know what things are most important to take into consideration when finding lighting for your new stone counter tops.

  1. How much space?
  2. How translucent the stone?
  3. How will color temperature affect the stone?

More info here!

YSK oral contraceptives can cause blood clots.

YSK oral contraceptives can cause blood clots.

This week I learned .3% of women on birth control pills develop blood clots. 1 in 16,000 women on birth control pills develop brain clots. My wife was that one and had a stroke last week at 29 years old. For about a year she'd had what doctors told her were "sinus headaches" that were so bad she missed work at least once a month. Then the headache got exponentially worse, she was unbalanced, started vomiting, and had slurred speech and aphasia. That's when we went to the ER and found out she'd had a stroke. She was in the hospital for six days. Be aware of those symptoms.
