Shark Tank Keto Diet – U Health Formula

The new Shark Tank Keto Diet is currently the most discussed topic on various platforms (Magazines, TV shows, et cetera) thanks to a keto diet product that featured on the Shark Tank show. The developers of the product, Dr. Marko James, and Tamara Anne, both certified dietitians blew away the five-member panel of judges with their new weight loss supplement. You can visit the official website here. After presenting the groundbreaking creation, all the Sharks (the five judges) were so impressed they chose to invest with Dr. James and Anne. The developers scored a business deal worth over $1.5 million on the show.

Speaking after the show, Dr. James said, “we did not expect that all the five Sharks would like our product and respond this way. We’d still be happy with some media exposure, but this is amazing. We are grateful that the panel members saw how much potential

Why the Eastern Cape health dept faces lawsuits totalling R3.1bn


So sick! The Eastern Cape health dept faces R3.1bn in medico-legal claims.

  • The Eastern Cape health department has been sued by different lawyers for a collective R3.1 billion for medical negligence. 
  • Legal claims are expected to rise to R4.4 billion by the year end, the department said.
  • Blame is centred on unscrupulous lawyers, who are colluding with “unethical and shameless” healthcare workers, to make a quick buck.

The Eastern Cape health department may have to pay R3.1 billion in lawsuits if it can’t defend itself against lawyers suing for medical negligence at public hospitals.

The astronomical figure was revealed by newly-appointed health MEC Nomakhosazana Meth, who added that the amount is expected to rise to R4.4 billion by the end of the year. 

Meth blamed the astronomical medico-legal claim bill on unscrupulous lawyers, who are colluding with “unethical and shameless” healthcare workers in the Eastern Cape, to milk the

Treatments for COVID-19 – Harvard Health

What helps, what doesn’t, and what’s in the pipeline

Most people who become ill with COVID-19 will be able to recover at home. Some of the same things you do to feel better if you have the flu — getting enough rest, staying well hydrated, and taking medications to relieve fever and aches and pains — also help with COVID-19.

Beyond that, the FDA has also authorized treatments that may be used for people who have been hospitalized with COVID-19 and other medications to curb the progression of COVID-19 in people who are not hospitalized but who are at risk for developing severe illness. Scientists continue working hard to develop other effective treatments.

What therapies might help people with severe COVID-19 prior to hospitalization?

In November 2020, the FDA granted emergency use authorization to two monoclonal antibody treatments (bamlanivimab, made by Eli Lilly; and a combination

Health & Fitness Clubs – Statistics & Facts

The fitness industry certainly appears to be on the up, with the number of fitness enterprises in the United States rising significantly in the last decade. However, these projections are likely to be impacted by the coronavirus pandemic which swept across the globe in 2020. Many health and fitness clubs were closed for months on end in an attempt to stem the flow of the disease and gyms were left empty as people were encouraged and, in some cases, legally required to stay at home.

During a June 2020 survey in the United States gauging public opinion on going to the gym during the pandemic, some 46 percent of respondents stated that they would be very uncomfortable going back to the gym or an exercise class while the crisis was ongoing. Indeed, when asked when they would feel comfortable going back to the gym amid the COVID-19 pandemic, more than

Essential Tremor Awareness Month: Tips to Finding the Best Treatment Option for Your Essential Hand Tremor | Health & Wellness

(BPT) – Every March we celebrate Essential Tremor Awareness Month to bring awareness to the most common movement disorder among adults, typically impacting the hand. This condition causes involuntary shaking, which occurs during intentional movement of the affected body part, also known as an action tremor.

Essential tremor is a debilitating disease, both physically and emotionally. People living with the condition struggle to complete everyday tasks such as pouring a glass of water or writing their own signature. Essential tremor also causes people to miss out on fulfilling experiences like holding their newborn grandchild or engaging in their favorite hobbies such as drawing and cooking because action-based tremors are uncontrolled.

Many patients with the condition start to avoid doing activities that bring them joy in order to alleviate the stress caused by their hand tremors. Given these challenges, it is vital for patients with essential tremor to find the right

To Tell the Truth: NYT Promotes ‘Study’ From Team Left Advocacy Group as Scientific Health Research

To Tell the Truth is Human Events News’ press analysis series. These stories will focus on “news” being reported by either The New York Times, The Washington Post, ABC News, NBC News, or CBS News. Despite 24-hour cable broadcasts, and an untold number of internet sources, these established, mainstream platforms continue to influence the majority of American citizens and their political opinions.

The “news” generated by these press outlets is better regarded as “opinion” crafted in a way designed to discourage skepticism and critical thought on the part of the audience. To Tell the Truth will be Human Events News’ periodic effort to help address this bias and restore the skepticism necessary on the part of all Americans to maintain a free society.

Last week, the New York Times published via email newsletter a piece titled “How Trump Affected Americans’ Health.
