News that Vexes

It's so tiresome to read 'new studies' that reveal Smoking, Stress or Obesity are Bad for you. Yet these studies appear all the time. It's time to take back the newswire from so-called Scientists!

Heart Attacks at School Involve More Adults Than Kids

This sums it up:
After reviewing 16 years of emergency medical service calls in the Seattle area, researchers found that faculty and staff were 25 times more likely than students to suffer cardiac arrest, according to lead researcher Dr. Tom Rea [send him mail to congratulate him!], an associate professor of medicine at Harborview Medical Center and the University of Washington School of Medicine. "It is much more likely to occur in adults as opposed to students."

Rea was noncommittal about what should be done. "It is a loaded question," he said.

Next up for Dr. Rea? Arthritis research? Alzheimers? There's still lots of work to be done!
