Letter To Family And Friends Of Girlfriends Talk From Founder And Editor –IN Chief

Janice L. Carter

Is it I!or is the year flying by extremely fast? I can’t seem to keep up with things or could it be I have never lived such a fulfilling life before? Either way it goes it is almost a wrap for 2012! I hope you enjoyed October ‘s issue. Most of all, I hope you can see the progress in the magazine. It takes a lot to put together an issue. Most of all it takes a lot of money to produce this product. That’s why I truly appreciate all the contributors, support and supporters. If I had a team of people to help me, I know that it would be a whole lot different, but since it is only me, I take pride in myself because I know through all the adversity I face every month, I am still here, approaching my 4 th year. It is hard to make someone else believe in you, but when you believe in yourself, wow!and I had to learn that the hard way. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Remember the true meaning of this holiday. Open your heart to someone less fortunate. There are a few articles in this month’s issue that I want you to really pay attention to. “What are you drinking on?” And “Are you The Come Over and Chill Chick”. Both are very interesting articles and I want to hear your views about these subjects. Please excuse the langue in “Are you the come over and chill chick”? Since this is not my article I didn’t want to alter it or take away the impact I felt after I read it. Enjoy November’s Issue , support your local artists and business people

Many couples experience a diminish in the amount of wild, passionate, spontaneous sex but this week is all about helping Mom & Dad reignite the FIRE in their sex life (even though it seems like children are hell-bent on extinguishing it!) Tomorrow on Real Talk, I will take you through steps and give you tips on how to maintain a passionate relationship and marriage even with a bunch of "ahem-blocking" children around! Don't let you and your mate become one of those couples with children (and maybe even a dog) in your bed that rarely have sex. Ladies, don't let your husband be one of the many complaining about the lack of sex and getting kicked in the stomach by the 4 year old. Men, learn what you can do to help her get in the mood after a rough day with the kids. You do not want to ruin the intimacy and romance in your relationship ESPECIALLY when there is no need to. Yes, we want our children to be okay and not feeling "unloved" just because they can't sleep in the bed but think about it...how will your child be feeling if Mom and Dad are fighting, not getting along, and even splitting up because they didn't take the needed time to nourish their relationship and connection? Tonight, make it a point to have an uninterrupted "Date Night" in the bedroom. Alone. Doors locked. No exceptions. Love ya, NRA

Tuesday night on 'Real Talk' is -"Sizzling ex for Parents"! We all know how difficult it can be to be romantic, spontaneous, and sexually adventurous with our mates when you have little people demanding your attention and running amok! And then some of you have children that want to sneak into Mommy and Daddy's room...oh noo buddy! Get ready for another one! Tune in Tuesday night at 6pm EST on TalktainmentRadio. Call in with your comments or questions at 1-877-932-9766!

An Analogy Of Eating By Frank Comer !!The mind is the stomach in the head. There is an age-old adage that “you are what you eat”. Eating is the process of how we retain information (food) that is essential in helping us grow mentally. Food (information) in all it’s nutritional value are the nutrients taken into the mind to be used for growth and thus becoming the vital sources of energy that nourishes and supplies other parts of the body (”you are what you think”). Digesting what we see, hear, and perceive to be positive, or negative, right or wrong, good or bad, becomes just as important because it is the adverse reaction of regurgitation that defines who we are through our interactions. Digestibility allows the food (information) to be converted into simpler forms that can be absorbed by the mind (stomach), producing a mind that is sound mentally and physically conditioned for the obstacles of life. A mind that has been deprived of nutritive substances, it starts to feed upon food (information) that lacks substance and is deficient in all dietary elements, leading to a deficiency of excessive suffering from insecurity, immaturity, irresponsibility and negative digestion. The mind is unable to make use of this food (information) due to improper, and misleading eating habits, counteracting the act of nourishing and its ability to utilize the supplements that could provide distinguishing attributes which would replace the deficiencies of a functioning whole (mind and body). To become obese in your thoughts of negativity denies you internal harmony and limits your degree of excellence. One must not live just to eat, but eat in order to survive so that he or she will not crave the appetite of self destruction and allow themselves to live in a society where many just merely exist waiting to die from starvation, a condition of the mind!

Asthma in African Americans

THE LAST SEVERAL DECADES have seen a dramatic surge in the prevalence of asthma. In 2009, there were an estimated 17.5 million adults and almost 7.1 million children with asthma in the United States,1 up from 9.5 million adults and slightly more than 5 million children in 1995.2

Abstract African Americans not only have a higher prevalence of asthma than whites, they also are encumbered with higher rates of asthmaassociated morbidity and death. Factors such as genetics, socioeconomic status, health maintenance behaviors, air quality, and obesity likely contribute in combination to these burdens. Further work is needed to better understand these complex risk factors. To remedy these disparities, we need to ensure that patients at higher risk are given proper care and the knowledge to control their asthma.

While better management has reduced the rates of asthma morbidity and death in recent years, specific groups remain at higher risk of poor outcomes. Compared with whites, African Americans are not only more likely to have asthma, but they often also have more severe disease. For example, in a study in Philadelphia, PA, at all levels of poverty, asthma hospitalization rates for African Americans were substantially higher than for whites.3 African Americans with asthma are also more likely to die of asthma.

Key points

Multiple factors contribute to these disparities, including genetics, socioeconomic factors, cultural factors, health maintenance behaviors, providerpatient communication, air quality, and obesity.

To better identify those at risk, researchers are looking at genetic markers such as polymorphisms in ADRB2 and CD14. Exposure to tobacco smoke and to cockroach allergen contribute to higher rates of asthma prevalence and morbidity.

This article is based on a literature review with PubMed conducted in November 2010 using combinations of the following search terms: African American, asthma, epidemiology, genetics, obesity, and environment. Below, we review the evidence regarding a number of these factors and their association with the higher asthma prevalence, morbidity, and mortality rates in African Americans.

African Americans are more likely to receive suboptimal care, in particular to be misdiagnosed with other conditions, to not receive inhaled corticosteroids, and to not receive proper follow-up. Better physician-patient communication is one of the keys to improving this problem. !
