I am usually a strong advocate of using natural health methods in conjunction with traditional medicine, but what happened recently gave me a shiver down the spine.

Bye-bye tonsils, hello pounds


Kids with "sleep-disordered breathing," a condition sometimes caused by enlarged adenoids and tonsils, breathe better and sleep sounder after having both removed. But they also gain weight--a 13% bump in excess pounds within a year, reports a SUNY at Buffalo study that tracked 54 kids who'd had the surgery.
