Even nice kids get lice

When children get head lice, parents should remember that the presence of these tiny parasitic insects has nothing to do with dirt. Instead, lice infestations are related to the type of close contact that children are exposed to at school. In addition, children pose rather easy targets for lice because the little creatures are better able to cling to fine hair of thin diameter. Moreover, children often share combs, brushes, hats and other objects that spread lice. The first telltale sign of lice is usually itching behind the ears, on the scalp and at the nape of the neck. Treatment largely consists of an over-the-counter medicated shampoo or rinse containing permethrin or the recently FDA-approved comb-free shampoo ivermectin.

FRACKING: Energy at high price

If you are not familiar with a popular way to obtain natural gas, it’s the process of hydraulic fracturing or “fracking.” Drilling and then injecting fluid into the ground at high pressure to fracture shale rock, where natural gas is, to obtain the natural gas in a well. The fracking fluid is water mixed with sand and chemicals like hydrochloric acid and ethylene glycol. Approximately 40,000 gallons of chemicals are used per fracturing and about 600 chemicals are used in fracking fluid.

Benefits of chemical peels

Chemical peels are a treatment in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin, forcing the skin to exfoliate and peel. The new skin is typically smoother and less wrinkled. Various peels are available including glycolic acid which targets fines lines and uneven skin tone, salicylic acid which targets oil and acne prone skin, and pigment peels which target hyperpigmented areas, freckles and age spots. For a less intense experience, sensitive skin peels are also available.
