Fish delivery and more
It will be good weekend for sushi lovers. We have all fish now and ready to serve. But Tuna is not great. I only carry Yellow Fin tuna. Uni is also available but limited quantity.
We will be closed July 4th- July 7th (Thursday- Sunday). I decided to go to Lake Oconee to play golf instead of Mt. Rushmore area. And I am thinking go to Hawaii again this year. It is around Labor Day. I want to go to Big Island to see my future home.
It is hard to seat Patio this week because of hot weather. I can say after 8pm is fine. The temperature is below 80F after 8pm. Many people don’t understand some sushi items are raw. And raw items are very dangerous.
Valproate in Pregnancy Linked to Reduced IQ in Children
Further evidence that use of valproate in pregnancy leads to a reduction in cognitive abilities in offspring has been reported.
The results, from the well-known Neurodevelopmental Effects of Antiepileptic Drugs (NEAD) study, are reported by Kimford J. Meador, MD, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, and colleagues and are published online January 23 in The Lancet Neurology.
“Valproate is a very poor first choice for a woman of childbearing potential,” Dr. Meador commented to Medscape Medical News. “It has a known malformation rate of about 10%, which started to become evident in 2004. On top of this is the reduced cognition effect, which was first seen in 3 year old children earlier in this study. The current results at 6 years drum this home.”
Their latest results show that valproate was associated with an IQ reduction of around 7 to 10 points at age 6. “That is pretty dramatic,” he said. “It would affect a person’s ability to work and earn a good living. You wouldn’t want that for your child and most women would not choose to take valproate if they knew the risks.”
Dr. Meador said that the drug may have to be used in a subset of women with primary generalized epilepsy, but he would always try other drugs first. “And if valproate is the only one that works, I would try and keep the dose as low as possible.” He added, “I would say at this point lamotrigine, carbamazepine and phenytoin look fairly safe in pregnancy.”
I say any kind of medicine could be poison. Poison kills poison. I believe that is Western Medical theory. I do not take any medicine normally. I take ginger and garlic when I get flu. Going to see doctor is my last choice. Eating good food daily is more important.
