From Medscape Cardiology Clinical Q&A Measuring Waist Circumference Posted 08/17/2006 Benjamin A. Steinberg, BA; Christopher P. Cannon, MD  Question: I've read a lot about the importance of "metabolic syndrome", and I've also read that I can accurately assess almost all of my patients' risk simply by measuring their waist circumference. So, should I be measuring waist circumference in my patients?

Pearls for Practice Use of cherry juice for 8 days vs placebo is associated with less strength loss and pain during 4 days after eccentric elbow exercise. Use of cherry juice for 8 days compared with placebo is not associated with less motion loss and muscle tenderness. Clinical ContextTart cherries are good sources of phenolic compounds and may be useful in alleviating inflammatory conditions such as those associated with exercise. However studies examining the effects of antioxidants, such as vitamin C and E, on muscle groups have yielded inconsistent results due to differences in muscle groups studied and symptoms of muscle damage. In healthy men and women, consumption of 45 cherries a day has been shown to reduce circulating levels of inflammatory markers. The current study is a randomized, placebo-controlled, crossover trial conducted on 14 healthy men, examining the effect of tart cherry juice taken before and after eccentric exercise on symptoms of muscle damage.

“We get old too soon and smart too late." - Swedish Proverb My good friend, physical therapist Gray Cook, has a gift for simplifying complex topics. I envy his ability to succinctly take a complicated thought process and make the idea appear simple. In a recent conversation about the effect of training on the body, Cook produced one of the most lucid thought processes I have ever heard.

www.bodybuilding.comHorny Goat Weed may not sound serious, but in reality, it could provide a serious boost to those who need it. An all-natural phyto-aphrodisiac, it's based on the latest scientific research into male performance and well-being. Horny Goat Weed is a traditional botanical medicine used in China and Japan. Although this herb (which also goes by the names Yin Yang Huo, Inyokaku, and Herba Epimedii) has a history of traditional use for joints, liver, back and knees, its principle use is as an aphrodisiac. According to one herbal author, Horny Goat Weed has testosterone-like effects. It stimulates sexual activity in both men and women, stimulates the sensory nerves, and increases sexual desire.

From Nature Clinical Practice Endocrinology and MetabolismIn the US, growth hormone (GH) administration has been approved by the FDA for adults with proven acquired pituitary deficiencies, including those arising from hypothalamic-pituitary masses, surgery, irradiation or infiltrative processes. Adults with childhood-onset GH deficiency also benefit from FDA-approved GH replacement. GH is also approved for treating AIDS-related muscle wasting in adults. In patients who fulfill the biochemical and clinical criteria for adult GH deficiency, physiologic replacement improves quality of life, enhances lean body mass, improves cardiovascular function and could strengthen bone (Cummings DE and Merriam GR Ann Rev Med 2003, 54: 513-533). Prospective efficacy and safety surveillance studies are currently underway.
