Canada Needs A Strategy To Improve Senior Drug Safety

Many drugs prescribed to seniors have either not been adequately studied for this age group or have not been formally approved for the conditions they are being prescribed to treat. They are sometimes prescribed without any evidence they are safe and effective for them, and in some cases, even when they are known to present a possible risk (antipsychotics prescribed to older patients with dementia, for example).

Hey Boomer, What's Your Legacy?

If you're a boomer worried about your legacy: Of course every one of us will have a Legacy. Every breath, every footprint in the sand builds your Legacy. But I think conscious 'Legacy building' should begin early. Like at 40. Heck... 30'd be a good start.

A Generation of "Y"-ners? I Don't Think So

Gen Y Faces Big Risk

In an interesting new piece, the Huffington Post tries to determine if it's really tougher for millennials than it was for boomers as part of their Asking Y series. Certainly lots of things have changed since the 1970s: gas has gotten more expensive, electronics have become dramatically less expensive and cars cost about the same.
