Drugs and driving don’t mix
Getting drugged up and getting behind the wheel is a very bad idea, according to a study from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. Drivers who test positive for drugs (other than alcohol) are three(3) times more likely to get into a fatal car crash than people who are sober. Mix drugs and alcohol, and the risk of a fatal crash leaps by 23 percent.

Source ‘kid cages’ protecting N.M. children
“kid cages” are located at bus stops in the rural, western New Mexico where there have been sightings of the Mexican gray wolf.
Earlier this year, according to Menges, a wolf frightened a mother and her young son near a bus stop on the outskirts of town. “She saw the wolf and tried to make it leave, but it didn’t,” he said. “It moved toward her instead.” It (the wolf) was removed by FWS agents, but word of the encounter spread.
Wolf’s belong in cages, Not Our Children.

Source Severe obesity’ rising in US youth
About 5 percent of U.S. children and teens are “severely obese,” and the numbers are rising. Aaron Kelly, a researcher at the University of Minnesota Medical School in Minneapolis said “Severe obesity in young people has grave health consequences.”
Severely obese kids have higher rates of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular issues at younger ages, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol and early signs of atherosclerosis – a disease that clogs the arteries.

Source Children of obese mothers at greater risk for early cardiac death as adults
Adults born to Fat mothers are more likely to die earlier than those born to normal weight mothers, according to a new study published in the British Medical Journal.
While previous studies have indicated that the offspring of Fat mothers are more likely to develop cardiac risk factors like high blood sugar or high blood pressure in young adulthood, these findings are the first to examine how maternal obesity effects a person’s health beyond adolescence.
Rebecca Reynolds, a professor at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland said “her research team examined the birth and death records of nearly 38,000 people born in Scotland after 1950.
They found that children born to (Fat) mothers were 35 percent more likely to experience premature death than those born to mothers at a healthy weight.
Reynolds noted that children born to (Fat) mothers are also at risk for a variety of other health problems in addition to developing early risk factors for heart disease. Babies born to overweight mothers may be at increased risk for still birth or congenital abnormalities, and they are more likely to require intensive care when born. Additionally, maternal obesity has been linked to behavioral problems like ADHD.

Source Merry Christmas Texas
Surrounded by sleigh bell-ringing Santa Claus impersonators, Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday signed a law protecting Christmas and other holiday celebrations in Texas public schools from legal challenges – but also stressed that freedom of religion is not the same thing as freedom from religion.
It removes legal risks of saying “Merry Christmas” in schools while also protecting traditional holiday symbols, such as a menorah or nativity scene, so long as more than one religion and a secular symbol are also reflected.
