Humans need access to quality preventative health care in order to lead the long and productive lives they’ve come to expect. The only problem is that in our society, preventative health care comes at a high cost: one that many Americans are finding it hard to cope with. Unfortunately, small children and the elderly population, two demographics that have the least amount of income and independence, are often the ones that have to go without critical medical care because they can’t afford the high cost of insurance. Older persons can take advantage of Medicare, but those benefits don’t cover everything. That’s why affordable Texas Medicare supplements have become so popular.
In case you’re not familiar with why someone would need insurance supplements, or how Texas Medicare supplements work, you should know a little bit more about Medicare in general. Despite what some people might believe, Medicare is a government program for senior citizens which merely help to control the out of pocket cost that results from medical care. It is not intended to be the only medical coverage that a senior citizen has to take advantage of. As a result, there are often gaps in coverage.
Because lacking adequate health care coverage can be dangerous for many seniors who have serious medical conditions, the U.S. Government encourages all Medicare recipients to seek out additional coverage on their own. The government has approved twelve different Medigap insurance plans offered by private insurance companies. These can be quite expensive for an older person living on a fixed income, which is why affordable Medicare supplements Texas are so important to find. Although Medicare is complicated, having an independent supplemental insurance agent on your side, to walk you through the entire process, can be an asset to those that are feeling overwhelmed or confused.
It’s important to realize that gap insurance companies all offer something that is slightly different, and the policy that’s right for your friend or neighbor might not necessarily be the program that is best for you. Make sure to take your time when shopping for affordable Medicare supplements Texas. Ask questions about the claims process and what will be covered under different types of policies. Only when you have a complete picture of the way the gap insurance company and Medicare will work together will you be able to make a decision about the coverage that you need.

Scientist Paul Greengard has discovered a hopefully, major breakthrough with an alzheimer's drug. He has discovered a new protein needed to make beta amyloid. Beta Amyloid is a plaque build up in the brain of alzheimer patients. The new finding reveals a drug target that could slow down the affects of alzheimers on the brain.

Greengard became interested in researching a cure for alzheimer's after his father in law was diagnosed with the disease 25 years ago. His research has been funded by federal grants and funds.

With Flu season here USA Today put out a great article about what health authorities are expecting of all of us. Of course, just like every year they are urging everyone to get out and get their shot. However this year there is only going to be one shot that you need to get. Last year everyone lined up for their regular flu shot and then the swine flu shot but this year it's an all in one dose that you need. And for seniors 65 and older the does is more powerful. Here is the link to the article for more information http://www.usatoday.com/yourlife/health/medical/coldflu/2010-08-31-flu-shot_N.htm?csp=usat.me

As for the flu itself here are the symptoms to be looking for:
Fever is usually present, along with chills, headache and moderate-to-severe body aches and tiredness. Symptoms can come on rapidly, within three to six hours. Coughs are dry and unproductive, and sore throats are less common.
