Previously, Cardiff University (United Kingdom) researchers have reported that workers who chew gum are at reduced levels of occupational stress.  The same team, led by Andrew P. Smith, enrolled 72 university students in which they either chewed gum, or not, for two weeks. The subjects who chewed gum self-reported a decreased level of stress, as well as an ability to complete a greater load of academic work, as compared to those who did not chew gum.

#72 - Sin of the Skin #3: Thin Skin
As we age, the skin becomes papery thin, and suffers from a decrease in oil gland activity (which also may cause skin to become dry).

• Use natural, not synthetic, agents
• Select bioidentical hormones, which the body is able to use safely and efficiently
• Prescribe proper dosing (as stipulated by laboratory testing for deficits), not supraphysiologic dosing
• Conduct regular follow-up office visits and lab tests, to monitor progress
