Are You Salt Sensitive?

For some people, salt can aggravate high blood pressure. "When excess salt, and then water, crowd a [blood] vessel, they increase the pressure on the vessel walls," writes Jonathan Rich, an internist at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Md. "Reducing salt intake can significantly bring down blood pressure for these people."

How to Save a Life With Honey and Duct Tape

Experts are always preaching preparedness: Store water, food, first-aid supplies in case of a disaster or social upheaval. But that'll only get you so far, right? What if you have a major medical emergency and can't get expert help?

That's why Dr. James Hubbard (our publisher) wrote his new e-books, The Survival Doctor's Guide to Wounds and Burns. In them, he teaches improvisational medicine at its best, including how to close a gash with duct tape and prevent infection with honey.

These interactive e-books are only $3.99 each, and they're packed with easy-to read information. You can get your copies here.
