You can be a cool parent by knowing what to do if your child wants a tattoo or piercing.Tattoos and body piercing are gaining popularity as a form of personal expression. The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommendations for your child’s safety with these body modifications.Basic Guidelines:- Know that each state has a set of rules and regulations for minimum age. Proper identification is needed and so is parental accompaniment in some cases.- Look for a clean and sanitary establishment.- Watch someone else undergo a tattoo or piercing at your chosen establishment.- Meticulous guidelines for care of the wound is important.- It’s expensive to get a laser tattoo removal and it isn’t covered by insurance. Consider long and hard before getting a tattoo. A temporary or henna tattoo is a smart first step.- No tattoo artist or piercer will do a procedure on someone under the influence.- Make sure tetanus, hepatitis and other immunizations are up to date.- If the procedure site is red, hurts more than the initial needling, red streaking above or below, pus or fever, contact your doctor immediately.Speak with your child’s pediatrician if he is considering a body modification. She can share risks and complications if your child is passionate about getting a tattoo or piercing.Listen as Dr. Cora Breuner joins Melanie Cole, MS, in this encore episode from 2018 to share how to make sure your child is safe when getting a body modification.

Consumers now want to test for everything and be more sensitive to what ingredients are in their food and dietary supplements.Consumers now want to test for everything and be more sensitive to what ingredients are in their food and dietary supplements.Sandra Lee is an analytical testing expert and CEO of NJ Labs, a nationally recognized provider and advocate for quality in chemistry and microbiology testing that serves the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, dietary supplement, cosmetic, cannabis/CBD, dairy, and food industries.She says that although COVID has brought more attention to the importance of rapid at-home tests, there are other types of health testing consumers should get familiar with in 2022. One important test kit to have on hand is a tick test, especially during tick season (April-October). Lyme disease is a year-long problem, but most people are infected during the height of tick season. Lyme disease symptoms can easily be confused with COVID symptoms, and if not treated right away can result in lifelong health issues including chronic fatigue, joint pain and weakness, arthritis, and a compromised immune system.Sandra tells us more about these trends, the FDA's stance, and NJ Labs' tick collection kit.

But a new book by an award-winning scientist shows us that it doesn’t have to be this way.There are things we can do to align our body’s natural daily rhythms of rest and activity to recharge our internal “batteries.” And we can do this by mining the restorative power of sleep…while we’re still awake.THE POWER OF THE DOWNSTATE: Recharge Your Life Using Your Body's Own Restorative Systems by the University of California at Irvine Professor Sara Mednick draws on the latest research to show how we can access the most replenishing and repairing aspects of sleep through activities and moments that happen in our mornings, afternoons, and evenings by diving into what Dr. Mednick calls Downstates. Professor Sara C. Mednick is a cognitive neuroscientist and author. Dr. Mednick was awarded the Office Naval Research in 2015.
