  • In the good old summertime, when the thermometer is pushing 94 degrees, you have to find a way to stay cool and calm.

    A really good antidote to the heat is taking a break with a good book under a shady tree or in blessed air-conditioning.

    Bad research and Internet myths can be a dangerous combination. In the case of childhood vaccines, this combination led to parents opting out of vaccinating their children, which is causing a resurgence of potentially deadly, and easily preventable, diseases.
