It is well known that if pots or pans coated with Teflon are heated
on a stove without any food in them, pet birds living in the kitchen
can easily die from the fumes given off. It’s a condition
some vets call “Teflon Toxicosis”. It makes you wonder
if these non-stick coatings might be harming us.

What is YourHealthRecord
There is a big buzz in medicine about a new tool
for doctors. No, it’s not used to cut people open or stitch
them up. It’s designed to help you get better and stay healthy.

It’s called a personal health record and it stores and organizes
all the information important to your health in one place. Think
