Re: “Medical marijuana in Louisiana: when?

You would only have to work in a hosptal for 2 weeks to see the toll that alcohol takes on our citizens. Not just the slow death of liver disease, but the congestive heart failure, the total addiction, the spousal abuse cases, the child abuse cases, the automobile accidents. Those pedestrians and bicyclists just blindsided by a drunk. It goes on and on.
It is estimated that alcohol kills one person every 10 seconds. Worlwide 3.3 million deaths . As of today MJ has killed zero. No deaths reported due to MJ. Yes there has been some mj in car wrecks, but usually the alcohol or other drugs are present.
In my 40 years of medical service I am convinced that the wrong drug is illegal.…

Re: “How much sodium is too much for a day?

Courtney-Iodine is added to salt as a nutrient for the thyroid. It has no bearing on the sodium content. Iodized or non iodized have the same amount of sodium.

Re: “Margaritaville to close, reopen at new Decatur Street spot

Jen-It is not like that at all. BB blues clubs are a franchise that have been around for a long time. Just like any franchise it will continue to grow and open new clubs whenever and wherever possible. If I were in charge of these BB clubs I would not choose the saturated music club market of New Orleans. It is no offense to the beloved BB.

Re: “How much sodium is too much for a day?

As is common in the medical community guidlines are often changed. Remember when they said low carb Atkins type diets do not work, and are very dangerous? How about don't eat butter, eat margarine? Then back to eat butter not margarine. How about don't eat eggs and cheese due to cholesterol issues, and now it is they have no effect on chloesterol, and enjoy in moderation. Well this article was written in '09, and the thinking on salt is a little different now.I dont want to change anyone's diet so ask your doctor about salt for your specific case. What we call table salt is Soduim Chloride or NaCl, and is 55% sodium. The stuff called 'no salt' is Potassium Chloride or KCl. KCl contains no sodium at all. There is a product from Morton salt called 'Lite Salt', which is around a 50/50 mixture of these two salts. KCl does not taste too good and is not so good by itself, but is doable in a blend. If you are sodium resticted you could make a blend of the two just as Morton does, and come up with something that you can live with. If you make a 50/50 blend then you have cut your sodium in half.

Re: “New Orleans bar owners prepare for the April 22 smoking ban and what it will mean for business

When I was a small boy my mother worked with Dr. Alton Oschner , who at the time was beginning to push the fact of the harm associated with tobacco. He would ask me if I was going to smoke when I grew up and when I said no sir he said "wonderful for you". I say to you New Orleans..wonderful for you. There is not one positive thing that I can say about tobacco. I do not know how the big tobacco executives sleep at night, knowing full well and have always known full well how many people they have killed and maimed.
No smoking is the new normal now. It took a lot of money and lobby to make the population except this bad habit and to give the rights to the smoker rather than the non smoker. Kind of crazy when you use logic. The smokers had the 'right' to pollute the air of the general population. Bye bye Joe Camel!

Re: “Watch: Drew Brees was charming and funny on Conan last night

@rouxie-the saints did not break 50% this year.They would have to win 9 games to break 50%. But we stand by them through thick and thin. We are the "who dats" remember? Maybe we are now seeing where the problems may have been this year.
I like your name, how do you pronounce it? Does it rhyme with susie?
