Veneers the Art of Dentistry

Dental veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry in which a shell or layer of tooth-colored porcelain or composite is placed over the facial surfaces of your teeth to correct worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, discoloration and chips or cracks. Although dental veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they create bright, white smiles with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth, they also protect the surface of damaged teeth and may elimi-

Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth's color and shape-veneers generally don't require the extensive shaping prior to the procedure that crowns do, yet offer a stronger, more esthetic alternative to bonding. Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues, including: Worn enamel: Over time, the thin, hard translucent substance covering your teeth (enamel) may become

worn, dulled and discolored. Such wear and discoloration may be natural or result from a genetic predisposition. However, it often results from consuming soft drinks, tea or coffee; smoking; using certain medications, etc. Wear and tear: Teeth naturally wear down as people age. Aged teeth are more likely to have chips, cracks or a generally uneven appearance. Genetics: Certain people are born with abnormal spacing between their teeth that widens with age. Uneven teeth: Uneven teeth can result from tooth grinding or general wear and tear.

fabricate or create dental veneers are composite resin and porcelain. Indirect (created outside of your mouth) porcelain veneers and composite veneers are made by a dental technician in a dental laboratory; direct (created directly on your teeth) composite veneers are made by your dentist during your appointment at the dental office. Porcelain dental veneers are more appropriate solutions for severe cases involving dullness, wear, discoloration, extensive chipping, cracking, spacing or uneven teeth. Composite bonding or just bonding — which refers to direct composite veneers — is an inexpensive, effective and minimally invasive way to restore and correct small chips, cracks and discoloration in the teeth.

Invisalign Express WHEN ARE VENEERS APPROPRIATE? The removal of any natural tooth structure is permanent, so cosmetic dentists today prefer to offer patients the most minimally invasive options first. If your natural teeth are functionally and esthetically adequate, dental veneers may not be an appropriate treatment for you. However, if you have severely dull or discolored teeth, your treatment options may include porcelain dental veneers or composite veneers. Veneers do have the added benefits of longevity and a proven ability to enhance the appearance of the mouth, smile and other facial features that are better supported by properly shaped teeth. Veneers or Whitening?

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR SHORTERDURATION INVISALIGN? Porcelain dental veneers or direct composite veneers may require the "shaping" or "prepping" of all teeth being treated. Therefore, some cosmetic dentists first recommend teeth whitening to people with mildly discolored teeth who want a whiter and brighter smile because it is the least invasive cosmetic dentistry option. If crooked teeth or alignment issues are involved, whitening

also may be combined with orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign. CARE OF DENTAL VENEERS Care must be taken not to abuse veneers because the thin porcelain shells or composite layers can be damaged or break. Your dentist may advise you against certain uses or dietary tendencies (such as eating carrots) and may recommend you wear a protective appliance while sleeping, especially if you are a bruxer.

HOW LONG TO DENTAL VENEERS LAST? Veneers generally last between 5 and 10 years. After this time, the veneers would need to be replaced. Do Dental Veneers Require Special Care? No. Continue to follow good oral hygiene practices including brushing and flossing as you normally would. Even though porcelain veneers resist stains, your dentist may recommend that you avoid stain-causing foods and beverages (for example, coffee, tea or red wine). Call us today!

LEVITT-WEINSTEIN MEMORIAL

Levitt-Weinstein, Blasberg Rubin-Zilbert has long focused on the needs and traditions of the Jewish community, and it offers services for those who want traditional burials. However, its services are available to everyone. No one is turned away because of financial hardship.

Memorial From Page 1A bers on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so anyone who calls gets a personal response,” Rubin Explained. Levitt & Weinstein is a family managed firm that personalizes every step of planning and holding a funeral or memorial service. “When you come to us, you’re not ordering off a menu like you might be with some other companies,” Marc says. “Instead, we customize the arrangements and final resting places exactly according to what the family wishes. For us, it’s never about what’s good for business or for the cemetery. It’s about what the family desires.” –––––––––––––––––––––

CUSTOMIZED MONUMENTS "A stone or monument is an age-old way of remembering a loved one, and individuals have many different desires concerning them, Rubin

said. “Some people want just the name and dates of birth and death,” he says. “Others want pictures on the stones, or poetry or favorite sayings. We can custom design a stone or monument to fit just about every request.” Rubin recalls one family who wanted a monument in the shape of a tennis racquet. “The deceased family member was an avid player throughout life, so that’s how they wanted him to be remembered,” said Rubin. “We also had a wife who requested a monument carved in the shape of a cowboy hat like the one her husband always wore.” A final resting place is also very personal, and Levitt & Weinstein helps the family fulfill their desires. One family requested a location overlooking a lake in a park-like setting, and staff found exactly the right spot. “Another family wanted something very private, so we created a gated area that no one could

enter without permission,” Rubin pointed out. Another family wanted a private mausoleum that would accommodate eight people. “We custom built one exactly to order,” he said. Unlike many funeral businesses, Levitt & Weinstein is still privately owned rather than part of a publicly traded company. “At a time of grief, people want to deal with someone they know they can count on, someone who is part of the community,” said Rubin. “They have that with us. Our directors have more than 100 combined years of arranging experience, and because we are privately owned, we can make decisions quickly.”

PRE-PLANNING CAN HELP Pre-planning can make the funeral process just a bit easier for those left behind. “The individual can be sure that he or she will get exactly what he or she wishes, and the family doesn’t have to wonder if they are doing the right thing,” Rubin explained. “Families are under a lot of stress at a time of bereavement, and there can be disagreements and hard feelings. With preplanning, there’s none of that, because everything has been taken care of. And there are also financial advantages.” Although about 90 percent of the families Levitt-Weinstein serves choose preplanning, it can be difficult to get some people to think about the process. “You plan for a vacation, a wedding, a bar mitzvah or a birthday party,” said Rubin. “It’s just as important to plan a funeral. Why put the burden of those decisions on your family? Planning eliminates misunderstanding and makes it much easier for your loved ones.” He continues, “It’s just another part of estate planning, like making a will. If you make a plan, you can

Election over, it’s time to get to work in Hallandale Beach

Hallandale Beach’s election is over! I am so honored to have won re election as Mayor of this great city. I along with Vice Mayor Anthony Sanders, Bill Julian and Michelle Larzaro will be working with Commissioner Alex Lewy to keep our community progressing forward. This was a long fought campaign for all of us and now is the time to truly get to work. Walking door to door visiting condos and just meeting fellow residents around town, I have had a chance to listen to concerns facing people day to day. I have also had to address misinformation that people have been hearing. First and foremost our city is financially sound. We have a balanced budget and money in reserves. For many years our city has won awards for financial reporting. Secondly, to date there is not one particular person in our group being criminally investigated. The IG’s office for what we know is auditing the CRA and records involving many business transactions. Within their scope they can evaluate business practices within all cities. We still have not received a full report from them. What we can share with readers is

Mayor Joy Cooper

that prior to the anonymous complaint was filed; we have taken measures to address concerns that were a result of our own internal audit from two years ago. From west to east many residents are concerned about crime. The biggest issue we have been faced with is pockets of home burglaries. Our city police department continually works both patrol and undercover throughout our city addressing these crimes and protecting our neighborhoods. Regretfully, we cannot stop all crime, but working together we can help to prevent it. Our Police Chief is working a project called Front Porch. The first front porch event was held in the Northeast section of our city and the next will be in the Southwest in December. The Front Porch program is a block party where neighbors are encouraged to meet neighbors. All

our departments come out and share information, but the key thing is for everyone to know who live where. This way we can work together. The next issue was traffic and what can we do to address it. I have written many times about the issue. Our city has, and will continue, to work with our county and state agency to improve traffic. Another issue has been with condos and their regulations. We as a city cannot regulate the operation of condo boards. The city does regulate construction and safety in the condos. The city has stepped in when there is ample proof to investigate fraud. The state regulates condo boards and elections.

I have told residents that serve on Boards to attend the forward Condo Co-Op Meeting at our Local library to find out more about condo issue. The other big issue has been bus shelters. Over the past year we have been working to install shelters where we can. The process is very difficult in a built out community. Where we do not have easement we must work an arrangement with the property owners. There is also an issue with new ADA requirements. Things are looking up on the beachside and we are very close to replacing Hemisphere’s south shelter adding a shelter at Ocean Marine Yacht Club and Prince George. I

VENUS SALON AND SPA

Brings new and unique services to the Hallandale Beach area From the moment you walk into the Venus Salon and Spa, spacious hair and pedicure stations entice every customer.

The idea of Venus Salon and Spa came from Greek mythology. Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love was born a grown, young woman when she emerged from a jade-colored shell. Angels from heaven emerged to give her the first spa bath, filed her nails, and sprinkled her face with heavenly rose dew that gave her eternal youth. It was the brushing of her hair to give her a glamorous look that caused jealousy among the other Greek Goddesses. Venus Spa is what transformed Aphrodite to Venus. At Venus Salon and Spa, “You can be Venus too!” Owner, Elie Iskandar said “We owe it to capitalnest.com who assisted us in choosing the location as well as Arki.com for their help in making it a reality. Venus Salon and Spa’s goal is to make it convenient and easy for the people in the Hallandale community to bring out their beauty and maintain a healthy and youthful appearance. When we feel beautiful, our self-esteem grows! Venus Salon and Spa is announcing their Grand Opening this Saturday, November 10, 2012.

SPOTLIGHT ON STAGE Broward Stage Door Theatre presents Neil Simons hilariously absurd comedy Rumors

The play starts with Ken Gorman and his wife, Chris Gorman, on the tenth anniversary party for Charlie Brock, the Deputy Mayor of New York and his wife, Myra. Unfortunately, things are not going quite as planned. The kitchen staff has left, Myra is missing and Charlie has shot himself in the head, appearing to be a suicide attempt. Chris calls Charlie’s doctor, but before she can tell him what has happened, Ken advises her not to tell the doctor what has happened, as the bullet only went through Charlie’s ear lobe. Evidently, he had taken Valium before the party and feeling very sleepy, accidentally fired the gun, fortunately missing his head. As Chris ends her discussion with the doctor, guests Lenny and Claire Gantz arrive. Lenny and Claire recently recovered from an auto accident and use the same doctor whom they called in reference to a neck injury, only to exchange rumors about Charlie or Myra having an affair. More guests arrive and become involved in the situation, adding something new and twisted to the rest of the gossip. “Rumors” opened on Broadway in 1988 and closed after 535 performances. The song “La

Bamba” was used in the play. One of Simon’s wildest and funniest works ever, now on stage at the Broward Stage Door Theatre through November 11, 2012. Tickets are $38 at the box office located at 8036 West Sample Road, Coral Springs. Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. Matinees are Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. For more information, call: (954) 344-7765. PUCCINI’S FAMOUS AND POPULAR OPERA “LA BOHÈME STARRING AILYN PÉREZ AT BOTH ARSHT AND BROWARD CENTERS: Florida’s Grand Opera’s 72nd Season, one of the best, starts with Puccini’s most beloved opera, La Bohème. With glorious arias and thrilling voices, starring Ailyn Pérez, who was recently featured on the cover of the Opera

News Magazine. La Bohème is widely known and most beloved for its glorious arias, duets, ensembles and fascinating melodies. Equally recognizable is its portrayal of love, friendship and heartbreak among a group of young Parisian artists living in the Latin Quarter. It is the heart warming opera that inspired the Broadway hit “Rent”and brought motion picture audiences to laughter and tears. La Bohème is considered to be Puccini’s most performed opera. Audiences have never stopped from attending this opera over and over again, to enjoy this beautiful passionate love story.

It begins in 1830 Paris, as the rent comes due, the money is gone causing these young artists to sell whatever articles of value they possess.  It tells the heartbreaking story of romance between Mimi and Rodolfo, the profound lust for Mimi by the Count Paul, which is totally onesided, causing friction between Mimi and Rodolfo. Mimi contracts tuberculosis, becoming very ill and is deeply hurt and suffers over Rudolfo’s lack of trust in her. She leaves him a note of farewell and finally passes on leaving Rodolfo unable to cope without her, they are both doomed and defeated by the worst villian, poverty. This is one opera not to

miss when it opens at the Arsht Center in the Ziff Ballet Opera House on November 17, 2012 at 7 p.m. Other performances continue through November 21, 24, 27 & 30 at 8 p.m. December 2, 2012 matinee at 2 p.m. Tickets start as low as $11 and up.

Fom Page 1A –––––––––––––––––––– and small business growth that Mayor Joy Cooper has preached from the time I met her. Hallandale Beach residents may have gone into the election with their collective chests out - proclaiming change would be good - but when they had those six pages in their hands and truly looked at how far this city has come - this wasn't a choice at all. While people continue to tell me how poorly this city is run, I never respond. This community needs plenty of help in many areas, and with Renee Chrichton in place as the City Manager, this could be the best time to live and work in Hallandale Beach. I am not blind to those who BLOG and take shots at many of the city officials. To be honest, many things that have been written and said are true, but there are ways to handle situations. Berating fellow commissioners and the mayor and running to the media only puts this city further in the hole. Handle things within the "family". Communication really has been a problem the past five years, and it has to change.

There is nothing wrong with being an activist. If you are a taxpayer, you deserve to know everything, and I agree with it. What has happened in this city over the past decade, is it's being split, and then you have problems that get bigger and bigger - to the point where nobody wanted to attend or watch a commission meeting. The line of communication from City Hall must be wide open or you will continue to have problems. There is no other way! Having Mayor Cooper back in office is only a part of what appears to be one of the best group of elected officials we have had in a long time, and I have proudly sat through 11 Mayors, 70 Commissioners and 9 City Managers. Keep in mind that a commission is a like team. Each commissioner/mayor bring something different to the table. That part of the team has been missing, and I expect it will return over the next few years. Bill Julian has been a no-brainer to me from the first time I saw him raise money and deliver things to residents during heavy rains and flooding. He never should have been out of office in the first place because he represents the city. While there are always things he can work on, he is always the first to arrive and last to leave. A valuable member of any team. Anthony Sanders, while not being a savvy politician the past few years, appears to be the kind of team player that any commission needs. Again, like Julian, being progressive and getting out in the community, addressing the year-round needs and concerns of the residents, has been very important to the growth. Michele Lazarow, I believe will be one of those fresh, young faces the city has been looking for. While she may be overwhelmed from a political standpoint, and that's only natural when you haven't had the experience, her business sense and knowledge of

the city she grew up in will certainly be a huge asset. She is the type of person who will eventually embrace growth throughout the entire city.

Dick Blattner

HOLLYWOOD From the early voting feel in this community, change was not really the total answer. Not this year. Not in this economy. While Mayor Peter Bober and his commission came under fire from residents severe times over the past few years, it wasn't enough as those who went to the polls did so with the idea that this was too shaky of an economy to play around with. Bober overwhelmed Cliff Germano, while Patricia Asseff (District 1), Dick Blattner (District 4) and Linda Sherwood (District 6) all were reelected. Newcomers Peter Hernandez (District 2), Traci Callari (District 3) and Kevin Biederman (District 5) shook up the city. Callari upset favorite Heidi O'Sheehan. DANIA BEACH The one thing that can be said for this city is that change is rarely made. That was proven out once again on Tuesday as Walter Duke, Albert Jones and veteran Mac McElyea were all voted back in. Dania Beach had seven candidates vying for office.

AVOID JOINT REPLACEMENT SURGERY WITH THE MAP PEMF THERAPY RECOMMENDED BY DR. OZ

Chronic pain is debilitating, and quickly erodes quality of life. Now, a new medical technology allows many patients suffering from back or joint pain to avoid surgery and return to the activities and lifestyles they enjoyed previously. Map PEMF Therapy is a painless noninvasive method of delivering a pioneering new branch of an invisible treatment that provides a revolutionary cure you were waiting for. A rapid acceleration which recovers and restores a pain-free lifestyle. The treatment works on all joint problems, tears, sprains, fractures and repetitive injuries such as carpel tunnel, arthritis, and osteoarthritis. What’s truly amazing about MAP PEMF Therapy is that it actually regrows cartilage as well as increases bone density. It has been used by thousands of people, including many professional athletes. MAP PEMF Therapy can help patients avoid hip and knee replacements and provide rapid alternative recovery methods. It is now available at the WellCo Health and Wellness Center in Hallandale Beach. HOW IT WORKS If you have ever held two magnets in your hands, tried to force them together, and felt a resistance between them, then you have experienced a magnetic field.

Dr. OZ talks about PEMF therapy

Treatment helps patients avoid hip and knee replacements and provide rapid alternative recovery methods at the Wellco Health and Wellness Center in Hallandale Beach.

INTRODUCING THE WELLCO HEALTH AND WELLNESS CENTER AVOID SURGERY AND END PAIN If you have been told you need surgery or have chronic pain, we can help! Read below – to learn about a new, noninvasive neurological soft tissue medicine treatment used by professional athletes, that is now available to the general public. Magnetic Fields, which are widely used these days to improve circulation and cell metabolism. The body can become accustomed to nonmoving (or static) magnetic fields, which are generally unable to deeply penetrate the body. A pulsed electromagnetic field, however, is quite dynamic, is able to penetrate all the way through the body, and creates a cascade of effects within the body. The MAP PEMF Therapy uses moving magnets creating an energy wave

which changes the way your body copes with pain. The electrical magnets affect the nerve cells which are electrical cells and the magnetic fields affect how the nerves fire and quiet them down without using drugs increasing circulation in the area and aid the healing. Inside the MAP there are electrical coils, and when electricity passes through there it creates a magnetic field that moves through the body whispering at 75 trillion cells in your body going deep into

your body where sports creams and heating pads could never reach such as your spine. The magnetic field turns on activating ions and charged particles bringing in nutrients influencing things like blood cell supply opening up blood cells. You don’t just feel better you are better. The cost is far less than surgery, and patients avoid the long recovery times and possible side effects associated with surgery.

Avoid Pain and Joint Replacement Surgery With Revolutionary Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Treatment - No Drugs, No Surgery, No Pain Patient Benefits: • Greatly Speed the healing process • Reduce or eradicate Chronic and Acute Pain • Chronic and Acute Low Back, Hip, Knee and Neck Pain or deficiencies • Avoid Joint Replacement Surgery • Orthopedic Injuries • Fibromyalgia • Myofascial Pain • Tendon and Ligament repair • Reduces swelling and inflammation • Releases muscle trigger points • Improves soft tissue regeneration Electro Muscle Stimulation changes muscle tissue, softens or eradicates scar tissue, and increases circulation with the effect of removing long stored waste products and increasing cellular metabolism. The Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology uses micro impulses, which induce neuropeptides secretion by primarily C nerve fibers that have profound and wideranging effects, triggering complex regulative chains and cascades. Multiple biochemical pathways utilizing many types of neuro-mediators, hormones, and cytokines are involved. Although peptide half-life in body fluids is relatively short, other mediators in the cascades survive for many hours. Some regulatory peptides act on genomic activity to alter gene expression and change biochemical synthesis. Our device’s electrical signals can reprogram tissues locked into chronic vegetative and dysfunctional states by inducing bolus synthesis of regulatory peptides (RP). On a neurological level, widely dispersed un-meylienated C-fibers compromising 85 percent of all nerve fibers are effected locally by the Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology signal. C-fibers are responsible for slow diffuse pain signaling and are also neuro-secretory. Neuropeptides (NPs) are secreted into the surrounding tissue milieu by their exocytosis through vesicle membrane fusion with the cell membrane similar to neuro-transmitter secretion. The Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology impulses also are relayed through afferent neural pathways to the CNS and give rise to various 1) Segmental spinal reflexes by efferent signals sent from the cord to organs associated with that segment or back to the local tissue receiving the impulse. 2) Systemic reactions such as endorphin induction by efferent signals descending from the cortical and subcortical areas of the brain i.e. pain reduction. The Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology impulses have a direct effect on blood perfusion. Clinically observable and well-defined increases in tissue perfusion at the treated areas are due to neuropeptide-induced vasodilatation, particularly Substance P. A combination of device-induced axon reflexes also releases other vaso-active substances such as kinins, prostaglandins, cytokines, and nitric oxide. The end result is that blood flow to a treated area is significantly increased. Other neuropeptides and endocrine secretions released by device’s impulses mediate inflammation. Complement fixation and tissue injuries due to immune aggression are suppressed, and cellular immunity is enhanced by macrophage proliferation, activation, chemotaxis, and clearance of extracellular debris. The Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology has redefined existing technology with novel waveforms, unique circuitry, and clean signaling. Signaling is focused and intensified for narrow applications or is expanded with unique signaling combinations and frequency ranges for increased therapeutic flexibility. Compared with the earlier Russian electro-stimulation devices, The Pro Biofeedback MicroCurrent Technology generates clean and more precisely defined wave forms and possesses both newer (patent pending) settings that expand clinical versatility and vastly improved operational reliability. The Pro Bio-feedback technology is proven to be convenient, safe, and effective and has been cleared by the FDA and other governing bodies for pain relief.

Dr. OZ introduces a breakthrough way to heal pain using Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields. Also known as PEMF therapy, this method of healing has been widely used in Switzerland for over 15 years. It’s a technology that had been developed for the Russian Space program to help prohibit the bone loss that the cosmonauts suffered when they were in space and away from the earths magnetic fields. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL1_U1rZig&feature=plcp

Asthma and allergy sufferers: Have a happy and healthy holiday season by following a few simple tips

(BPT) - You might think that by the time the holidays arrive, allergy season is long gone. However, for millions of allergy sufferers, the reality is that allergens still abound. From pet dander to volatile organic compounds, indoor allergens can cause discomfort and health issues as bothersome as when pollen is in season. The holidays can be particularly difficult, as we visit family and friends and welcome guests and the allergens they bring with them - into our homes. 'The holidays can present a variety of challenges for asthma and allergy patients,' says Dr. Cliff Bassett, an ambassador for the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). 'Our environment changes in many ways during the holidays, from having new people in our homes to bringing in potential irritants like pine trees and dusty old holiday decorations.' AAFA offers some advice for helping minimize allergy and asthma trig-

gers in your home this holiday season: * Most people store holiday decorations in attics, basements or garages and they can pick up dust, mold and other irritants while in storage. Thoroughly clean all stored decorations before using them in your home. If one or more of these irritants is a trigger for you, wear a mask while cleaning. When you're done with the decorations this year, clean them again before you seal them in plastic bags and store them in airtight containers. * If you or a loved one suffers from a tree or pollen allergy, artificial trees can be a less irritating substitute, provided you opt for one that's not coated with sprayed-on 'snow.' If you will be using a live tree, you can reduce mold problems by thoroughly wiping the trunk with a solution of lukewarm water and diluted bleach (one part bleach to 20 parts water). Before you bring the tree inside, use a leaf blower to remove pollen grains.

* Everyone loves the smell of the holiday, but scent-creating home accessories can be irritants. Limit the use of air fresheners like candles, oils and potpourri. If you really want to fill your home with a holiday aroma during a special occasion, try baking using naturally fragrant ingredients like vanilla, cinnamon or citrus. * A crackling fire can create a warm, festive mood for holiday gatherings. To minimize potential irritation, don't use woodburning stoves or fireplaces at all. If you use a gas fireplace, check vents and use secured doors, rather than screens, to reduce smoke entering the

MOUNT SINAI MEDICAL CENTER LAUNCHES LUNG SCREENING PROGRAM 90% of Lung Cancers are Curable With Early Detection

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among both men and women – responsible for more deaths each year than breast, colon and prostate cancer combined. In the U.S., tobacco use still accounts for 87 percent of lung cancer deaths; and, smokers are up to 30 times more likely to develop lung cancer than non-smokers are. However, when diagnosed Dr. Roy Williams (back right) is one of only a early, more than 90 percent of lung cancers can few surgeons in the nation with experience in robotic, minimally invasive lung surgery, which be cured with prompt surgical intervention. In can be used to treat and cure lung cancer when an effort to save more caught in its early stages. lives from this disease, Mount Sinai Medical Center has developed a lung cancer screening program that aims to diagnose lung cancer in its earliest possible stage. Lung cancer in its early stages has no symptoms. Hence, more than 85 percent of men and women diagnosed with lung cancer are found to be in a late stage of the disease with very little chance of being cured. However, low-dose CT lung cancer screenings, available at Mount Sinai, offers greater hope for survival through early detection, especially for high-risk patients. A Computerized Tomography (CT) lung scan is an efficient and painless exam. It combines special X-ray equipment with sophisticated computers to produce multiple images of your lungs, taken from different angles. Mount Sinai is able to provide a low-dose lung screening because, as a Radiation Safety Provider, we have instituted safeguards to ensure the smallest amount of radiation dose exposure to patients undergoing testing. These safeguards help eliminate duplicate studies in the future and ensure that you receive the information you need with the least amount of exposure. Recently, the American Association for Thoracic Surgery Task Force for Lung Cancer Screening and Surveillance released clinical guidelines recommending annual lung cancer screenings with low-dose CT for smokers and former smokers age 55 to 79 with a 30 pack-year history, or age 50 with a 20 pack-year history and additional risk factors. “Based on these new guidelines, we are pleased to announce that Mount Sinai Medical Center’s multidisciplinary lung cancer screening program is an opportunity to offer high-risk patients a greater chance of surviving lung cancer,” said Dr. Roy F. Williams, thoracic surgeon with Mount Sinai’s Division of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. Dr. Williams is one of only a few surgeons in the nation with experience in minimally invasive lung surgery, and Mount Sinai is one of a select few hospitals in South Florida offering robotic lung surgery, which requires less time in the hospital and offers a quicker recovery. Mount Sinai’s multidisciplinary approach leads to greater accuracy of diagnosis, consistent clinical results, decreased time to treatment and higher patient satisfaction. To learn more about Mount Sinai’s lung screening program, or to schedule an appointment, please call 305-535-3434 or visit www.msmc.com.

room. * When giving a gift to someone with allergies or asthma, keep their potential triggers in mind. For example, some children with asthma may be irritated by the materials commonly used in stuffed animals. Look for products that do not have sensitizing or allergenic chemicals such as formaldehyde. You can also find a list of allergy and asthma-friendly products on the AAFA website, www.aafa.org/certified. * When welcoming guests who have allergies or asthma, take preventative steps to help minimize irritants. Give your home a thorough cleaning (you probably would anyway because of the holiday) using cleaning products that can reduce allergens

from hard surfaces, but that do not use harsh, potentially irritating chemicals. Vacuum using a high quality vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter to reduce the chance of disturbing dust into the air. Don't forget to change your furnace filters as well. Use a high efficiency filter that

can last up to 90 days. No one wants to experience an allergy or asthma attack during the holiday season. By taking steps to minimize irritants in your home environment, you can help ensure that everyone's eyes are bright with holiday joy - and not because of allergies.

Resourceful Consumer Trends You Should Know About

(NewsUSA) - When the economy nosedived, and companies had reason to be scared, a few businesses got resourceful. Low incomes and record job losses pushed consumers toward trends like buying in bulk and using group discount websites. And where there was demand, supply soon followed. In came the success of wholesalers like Costco, Sam's Club and BJ's. But warehouse clubs weren't the only stores seeing growth in bulk sales. Farmers markets, co-ops and natural food stores observed more supersized shopping. Whole Foods said bulk food purchases were growing by approximately 25 percent every year. That wasn't the only buying trend to emerge, however. "The Groupon following led to an explosion of similar sites, like LivingSocial and Dealfind, not to mention all of the city-specific ones," says Joe Kalfa, the leader of a new movement of group buying called All Our Power. "You can buy virtually any commodity in bulk and get all kinds of group discounts on spas, restaurants and vacations galore, but what about monthly expenses like car insurance, gas and health care? It seems to me like there's room for some improvement," adds Kalfa. Well, maybe there is. According to Time magazine's Moneyland, warehouse club members can save 25 to 35 percent on their food budget. Shoppers who forego packaging altogether and buy food from bins or dispensers save anywhere from 30 to 90 percent over prepackaged products. Imagine those types of savings applied to insurance policies, gas prices, medical bills, cell phone plans and more. All Our Power, which seeks to rally 10 million members and secure membership discounts from all kinds of service providers and retailers, could be the next group-buying trend to take flight. A buzz has already formed around the young movement as consumers worldwide realize the potential benefits of a free membership with access to serious negotiating power. Are you tired of paying too much for car insurance or gas? You're not the only one. Sign up and learn more about your buying power at www.allourpower.com. Or, see what others are saying on Twitter @ AllOurPower.

INSIDE: SUN TIMES HOLIDAY RECIPES

VARICOSE VEINS: Obtaining Younger, More Beautiful Legs without Surgery WHAT KIND OF SYMPTOMS DO VARICOSE VEINS CAUSE? Small spider veins cause symptoms in about 50% of people. These include restless leg syndrome, night cramps, heavy or tired legs or a burning, creepy, crawly or aching feeling in the legs. With more severe vein disease people can develop increasing leg pain, swelling, discoloration, infections, bleeding from the veins, blood clots or leg ulcers says Susan B. Fox, D.O., RSPVI, FSVM. WHY DOES IT SEEM LIKE EVERYONE HAS VARICOSE VEINS? In one US health survey, varicose veins were found to be the 7th most common reason for medical referral. It is estimated that up to 80 million Americans are affected by venous disease. Approximately, 25% of women and 15% of men have some degree of vein problems. This increases so that by age sixty, 72% of women and 40% of men are affected by vein disease. ARE VARICOSE VEINS DANGEROUS? Varicose Veins are not usually dangerous. However, large, ropey superficial veins can sometimes lead to sluggish blood flow that may make a person more likely to develop a blood clot. If this is in the deep venous system, it can be dangerous and blood thinners need to be started. WHY DO SOME PEOPLE GET VARICOSE VEINS AND OTHERS DO NOT? There is no conclusive answer to this except that if your parents or relatives have varicose veins you may be more inclined to develop them. Contributing factors appear to be hormonal changes, pregnancy, weight gain and occupations where you are on your feet all day. WHAT CAUSES VARICOSE VEINS? No one knows exactly but it appears that two factors contribute to the development of varicose veins. One is that the vein walls weaken and the second is that the valves inside the veins don’t work properly. When the valves do not work properly the flow of blood is disrupted which leads to a higher pressure in-

While Varicose Veins are not usually dangerous, large, ropey superficial veins can sometimes lead to sluggish blood flow that may make a person more likely to develop a blood clot. Susan B. Fox, D.O., RSPVI, FSVM. looks over one of her patients.

No one knows exactly but it appears that two factors contribute to the development of varicose veins. One is that the vein walls weaken and the second is that the valves inside the veins don’t work properly. When the valves do not work properly the flow of blood is disrupted which leads to a higher pressure inside the vein and vein problems ensue.

side the vein and vein problems ensue.

IS THERE SOMETHING THAT I CAN DO TO HELP MY VARICOSE VEINS? Try to maintain an ideal weight and exercise regularly. Calf pumping exercises help the veins circulate the blood. The mainstay of conservative therapy is wearing compression hose. These are not the same as store-bought support hose. Your doctor should write you a prescription for medical-grade compression hose that you should wear from the minute you get up until you lie down to go to sleep. CAN I TAKE SOMETHING TO MAKE THEM GO AWAY? Some reports state that herbal medications may help decrease leg swelling and aching. These include Bilberry fruit extract, Horse chestnut seed extract , Rutosides and Pycnogenol. Long- term, well - controlled trials are lacking on many of these supplements. WHAT CAN I DO TO GET RID OF MY SPIDER VEINS? The treatment of choice for smallmedium sized veins is sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution into the veins causing them to seal shut and disappear over time. It feels similar to a bug bite. Sclerotherapy usually takes a few treatment sessions and is viewed as cosmetic by most insurance plans.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED SURGERY TO GET RID OF MY VEINS? You should see a vein or vascular specialist says Susan B. Fox, D.O., RSPVI, FSVM. They may need to order special tests to help determine if you have abnormal venous blood flow. These tests are non-invasive and can be done in the office in less than an hour and are usually covered by insurance.

dovenous Laser therapy where a laser catheter is placed inside the vein to seal it shut. Endovenous laser procedure is usually done in the doctor's office under local anesthesia.  It takes less than 30 minutes and has minimal to no scarring. The newest minimally invasive procedure is called Clarivein.  It is FDA approved and requires no incisions to close the veins.  The patient only receives one or two injections of local anesthetic.  A wire is placed inside the vein which rotates around and a sclerosing solution is injected into the vein which coats and closes the vein.  This is called mechanico- chemical ablation.  It is performed in the office in less than 15 minutes. People can return to work later that day or the next. There is only minimal discomfort after the procedure. Walking is encouraged even immediately after the procedure. In one survey of patients following the endolaser procedure, 99.8% of patients said that were satisfied with treatment and would refer a friend for the procedure.

WHAT OPTIONS DO I HAVE TO TREAT MY LARGE VEINS BESIDES VEIN SURGERY OR VEIN STRIPPING? There are newer less invasive treatment options that are covered by Medicare and many insurance plans. Two procedures that are FDA approved include VNUS Closure where a radiofrequency catheter is placed inside the vein and En-

WHY TREAT MY VEINS? DON'T THEY JUST COME BACK? When the veins are treated by vein experts, the results are excellent. Though no guarantees can be made that you will be varicose vein free forever, most patients are thrilled that they treated their veins and wish they had done it earlier. With the newer treatment methods

WHAT IF MY VEINS ARE TOO LARGE TO INJECT? If the veins are larger than 3 to 4mm they may need to be removed through tiny incisions. This procedure is called Ambulatory Phlebectomy. It is performed in the office under local anesthetic and leaves virtually no scarring and has almost no down time. Another procedure to treat large veins is foam sclerotherapy. This procedure is performed by making the sclerosant into a foam and injecting it into the veins. This works relatively well on medium to large veins and can be performed under ultrasound guidance for better accuracy.

AFTER

there is less down time, less complications, less scarring and very little recurrence compared to conventional vein stripping and surgery.

Tips to enhance holiday meals with flavor (BPT) - Thanksgiving and Christmas meals often incorporate a lot of traditional foods and flavors, which as a host, may become a bit boring. But when you have friends and family visiting for several days, there are plenty of opportunities to shine with new flavors and interesting meals. As a host, embrace all of the meals you'll be serving, which provides you with an excellent chance to show off your culinary skills. To help you plan the menus and entertain your guests during their entire visit, Gaby Dalkin of What's Gaby Cooking and Lindsay and Taylor Landis of Love and Olive Oil have recipes and tips to make everything much easier. 'I think like most people, I'm not just entertaining on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, but am making meals for my family on the days surrounding the holiday,' Dalkin says. 'These are times when I feel like can stray from the ordinary holiday tradition and experiment with my recipes.' Here are some tips to make your holidays a

memorable time: * Assess your ingredients - including your spice cabinet - to ensure all holiday essentials like cinnamon, cloves, vanilla bean, nutmeg, flour and sugar are available for all recipes. * Choose recipes ahead of time so you know that you have all ingredients available. Purchase the dry goods you need at least a week ahead to help reduce stress. Then purchase perishable items like meat and dairy products a day or two before guests arrive so you have everything ready to go. * Make non-perishable snacks ahead of time and store them in containers to bring out when needed. Try this recipe from Dalkin to keep your guests happy: SWEET AND SPICE ROASTED NUTS 1 cup raw whole cashews 1 cup raw whole walnuts 1 cup raw whole almonds 1 cup raw pepitas 1 egg white 1 teaspoon water 1/2 cup white sugar 1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands Sea Salt

CLASSIC PUMPKIN PIE CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKES 1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands Cayenne Pepper 1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands Ground Saigon Cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and set it aside. Combine the cashews, walnuts, almonds and pepitas in a large bowl and toss to combine. Whisk together the egg white, water, sugar, salt, cayenne pepper and cinnamon. Drizzle the wet mixture over the nuts and toss to combine, making sure they are evenly coated. Transfer the nuts to the baking sheet and spread in an even layer. Roast for 30 minutes,

stirring occasionally. Remove the nuts from the oven and separate the nuts as they cool. Store in an airtight container and serve as needed. * Add a surprising and special touch to cocktails. Slice a Spice Islands Bourbon Vanilla Bean in half and drop it into your bottle of vodka or bourbon several days prior to the arrival of your guests. It will add a delicious and warm flavor to all cocktails. But don't forget about the children at your gathering either. 'I always create interesting cocktails for my seasonal entertaining, and this year, I'm making something special for the kids,' says Lindsay Landis. Her holiday

drink gives a festive gingerbread twist to the classic root beer float. Instead of using root beer with ice cream, she instead uses vanilla cream soda and spiced molasses syrup to make the drink taste just like liquid gingerbread. * Finally, choose recipes that can be easily made in large quantities. Dalkin serves her Classic Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Chip Pancakes the day after a big holiday to continue the rich, luxurious flavors guests enjoy during the holidays.

oil 1 egg 1/2 cup chocolate chips butter or baking spray for skillet

In a large bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, sugar, baking powder and salt and set aside. In another large bowl, whisk together the milk, pumpkin, vegetable oil and egg. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until everything is just combined, being careful not to over mix. Fold the chocolate chips into the mixture. Heat a griddle or large pan to medium-low heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Drop 1/4 cup of batter onto heated skillet. Cook on the first side until the edges begin to bubble, about 2 minutes. Carefully flip pancake over and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Continue this process to make the rest of the pancakes, making sure to lightly spray the pan between each pancake to ensure they do not stick. Serve the pancakes immediately with maple syrup and butter, if desired.

CLASSIC PUMPKIN PIE CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKES 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon Spice Islands Ground Saigon Cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands Ground Ginger 1/8 teaspoon Spice Islands Ground Nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon Spice Islands Ground Cloves 3 tablespoons white sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands Sea Salt 1 cup 2 percent milk 1/2 cup pumpkin puree 2 tablespoons vegetable
