Diabetes, Hypertension, High Cholesterol and Viagra

Know any men with diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol who are partaking of Viagra? You should immediately let them know the FDA has "approved updated labeling" for Viagra and other ED drugs.

This note appeared in last week's FDA News Digest: "FDA urges patients taking these drugs who experience sudden vision loss or decreased vision in one or both eyes to stop taking the drug and contact a medical professional right away."

Yes, that's right they are telling men IF you suddenly go blind read the label.


Yep that's what they did. Read the label after you go blind.....duhhhh

And these people are entrusted with our health safety???

We're in deep trouble.

Truly wishing you wellness and joy!

We are one.......

We Are One
We are the children of one nationReaching out for help to understand.How to healIn a world so ever-changing.For our lives have just begunGive us hope, for we are one.
Our hearts have all been broken Hear our cry, the tears have all gone.How to justifyThose who died for freedom.For the future's in our handsAs we pledge, united we stand.
We are one, We are the children Reaching out across the sea.Side by Side, We stand unitedPledged to save humanity.Standing strongWe are tomorrow.Find peace for you and me.One by one, We are the futureStanding strong, for we are one.
WE ARE ONE, We're the children.WE ARE ONE, Across the sea.WE ARE ONE, We're united.WE ARE ONE, Humanity.WE ARE ONE, We're tomorrow.WE ARE ONE, You and me.One by one, WE ARE ONE

We really are one. What happens enviromentally in one country may well affect another country and it's inhabitants. Not just the people either, but the plants and animals too. Did you know Sir Edmund Hillary, who was the first to climb Mount Everest in 1953 has urged the United Nations to place the world's highest mountain on its list of endangered heritage sites because of the threat of climate change. Our responsibility as citizens of this planet is to care for each other. That includes the critters in this world. We are indeed one. What affects them will also affect us. Do you realize in some areas of the world the butterflies, lizards, etc. are climbing to the tops of mountains, etc. because of global warming to cool off and then they are dying anyway because they've left their natural environments. We've created this pending extinction by our irresponsibility.

Are you saying Pam what does this have to do with wellness? Isn't this blog about wellness? I've said it before wellness is not just the absence of illness. Wellness is a compendium of the whole of your life. Do you use hazardous products in your home? Do you recycle? Do you eat mostly processed foods? All of these things not only impact YOUR wellness, but also the wellness of the world..... yes, we ARE one!

Wishing you wellness and joy,
