The middle of the school year is upon us, and sports season is well under way. Many kids are spending hours each day involved in hard, physical activity--they are learning the games and how to be better at them. Unfortunately, many kids don’t properly consider the dangers that can occur on the playing field, and therefore do not properly protect themselves during play.
Video games are can no longer be considered a new novelty. It’s been almost 40 years since the home gaming market kicked off in the United States, and now many companies that publish games are household names (Nintendo, Playstation, Sega, etc.) No human being alive today that could be reasonably considered a child has ever existed in a world without video games.
Researching and understanding one’s own family medical history is a great way to learn more about our rich genetic heritage--and a great way to help prevent serious issues from arising in the future. Our genes play a vital role in our overall health, as there is a whole host of illnesses, disorders, and conditions that are hereditary, many of which are chronic and/or deadly to leave unchecked. Cancers, diabetes, blood conditions, cardiovascular diseases--all have some sort of connection to a patient’s particular genetic code.
In May of 2009, Sue Ward awoke to a great fear of every parent: her child was screaming for help. Searching the outside of her home in West Sussex, Ward found her teenage daughter Rachel, laying in some bushes. The young girl had put on a jumper and stepped out of her bedroom window, plummeting 25 ft to the ground below. The Wards were lucky--Rachel didn’t break a single bone. She also couldn’t remember how she had wound up leaving the bedroom in the first place. Rachel is the victim of a somewhat rare, somewhat serious, and somewhat ill-understood sleeping disorder known as somnambulism--also known as “sleepwalking.”
