Pharmaceutical Company Lies About a Drug and is Finally Fined

May 14th, 2007 · No Comments

OxyContin, a trade name for the narcotic oxycodone hydrochloride, is a time-release painkiller available by prescription.  It is prescribed for relief of moderate to severe pain from such things as injuries, bursitis, neuralgia, arthritis, and cancer. Designed to be swallowed whole and digested over 12 hours, the pills can produce a heroin-like high if crushed and then swallowed, snorted or injected. As a street drug, it is commonly called OC, OX, Oxy, Oxycotton, Hillbilly heroin, and kicker.

From 1996 to 2001, the number of oxycodone-related deaths nationwide increased five-fold while the annual number of OxyContin prescriptions increased nearly 20-fold, according to a report by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

Women and Alcohol

May 12th, 2007 · No Comments

Even in small amounts, alcohol affects women differently than men. In some ways, heavy drinking is much more risky for women than it is for men. As a rule, men weigh more than women, and, pound for pound, women have less water in their bodies than men. Therefore, a womans brain and other organs are exposed to more alcohol and to more of the toxic byproducts that result when the body breaks down and eliminates alcohol.

What is a drink?

A standard drink is:

- One 12-ounce bottle of beer or wine cooler

- One 5-ounce glass of wine

Nicotine and the Brain

May 8th, 2007 · No Comments

When tobacco is smoked, nicotine is absorbed by the lungs and quickly moves into the bloodstream and then reaches the brain within 8 seconds! Nicotine also acts directly on the heart to change heart rate and blood pressure and also on the nerves that control respiration to change breathing patterns.

Nicotine and the Brain

Nicotine activates areas of the brain that are involved in producing pleasurable feelings. Scientists discovered that nicotine raises the levels of a neurotransmitter called dopamine in the parts of the brain that produce feelings of pleasure and reward. Dopamine is the same neurotransmitter that is involved in addictions to other drugs such as cocaine and heroin.
