Two topics today - thyroids and lightbulbs

Two parts today:

Do you have problems with your thyroid? Do you understand what the thyroid does and what happens when it doesn’t work properly?

The FDA has just published a Question and Answer session with Mary Parks, M.D., Director of FDA's Division of Metabolic and Endocrine Drug Products: Thyroid Medications: Q & A with Mary Parks, M.D.. There is also a PDF version available for easier printing, if you want.

It’s an interesting read.

If you read the article about the newer lights causing migraines for some people, Laura over at B5media’s blog about CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) has a very interesting piece on this: The Lightbulb Theory - It`s Cracked!
