If you are a parent there are so many household dangers to be aware of, especially when you have small children. One such hazard to be conscious of is an all encompassing, voluntary recall of Roman shades and roll-up blinds that has just been issued due to their involvement in several deaths and injuries of children over the past few years. These products carry with them a product liability due to the risk of strangulation because of their easily accessible cords. This is a fairly wide reaching threat as, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission press release, approximately 5 million Roman shades and 3 million roll-up blinds are sold every year.

Menopause is a part of life that many women dread, and with good reason. Almost all women have grown up hearing tales of hot flashes, mood-swings and emotional outbursts. While some women breeze through “the change” with little to no discomfort or inconveniences, menopause can come with a host of troubling changes, but sometimes the dangerous drugs prescribed to combat these issues can be even more harmful than the original problems. 
At the root of many of the unwelcome symptoms of menopause is the rapid drop off in estrogen that occurs after menopause. According to an article on Wikipedia, estrogen plays a part in a great number of roles in women’s health. Not only does it prepare the uterus for pregnancy, but it also aids in metabolism, skin and blood vessel health, protein synthesis, blood coagulation, fluid balance, gastrointestinal health, lung function, mental health and many other roles. When estrogen levels decline, according to, menopausal and peri-menopausal women can experience a range of symptoms including, hot flashes, night sweats, sleep disturbances, vaginal changes, loss of bone density, mood swings, urinary problems, lack of concentration, low libido, weight changes and hair thinning.
