Same supplement can be effective for arthritis

DEAR DR. ROACH: Please tell me about the supplement SAMe. I am a woman, 58, who suffers from osteoarthritis from my exercise routine, which is three days of heavy lifting with free weights and 15 miles of jogging each week. I love the workouts but not the pain it causes in my hands, knees and lower back.

The best bmi for a long life

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am an 81-year-old man in good health. I am 5 feet, 11 inches tall and now weigh 175 pounds after intentionally losing 15 pounds through a combination of diet and exercise. I feel better at this weight than I did at my former weight, but my doctor says the studies he has read show that if a person is slightly overweight, he is likely to live longer than a person who weighs less. Do you agree with his position? -- D.N.K.

We all need vacations

Every time the president goes on vacation, roughly half the talking heads jump all over him. They tally up how many days he's spent on vacation, or how many rounds of golf he's played since he became president, and then manage to remind us that we're not taking vacations on fancy islands in houses that rent out for a princely sum.

Backing Hard Knocks University

In the 1960s, I attended the University of North Texas. It was a public school blessed with good teachers and an educational culture focused on enabling us students to become socially useful citizens. And it was affordable - with close-to-free tuition and a part-time job, I could get a good education, gain experience in everything from work to civic activism, graduate in four years, and obtain a debt-free start in life.

THE HOMELESS

The Obama Department of Justice argued last week that a Boise, Idaho, law against "public sleeping in a city without adequate shelter space constitutes criminalizing homelessness itself, in violation of the Eighth Amendment." In a statement of interest filed in federal court, the Obama administration asserted that banning sleeping and camping in public places constitutes "cruel and unusual punishment." Republican candidates, please take note.

Shingles vaccine can prevent complications

DEAR DR. ROACH: My boyfriend, who is in his 60s, got the recommended shingles shot a couple of years ago. Three weeks ago, he got a very bad case of shingles. It went from the front of his stomach, along the left side, to the middle of his spine. He has huge blisters, a red rash, pain and no appetite, and he constantly sleeps. The doctor put him on a regimen of valacyclovir. He was told to keep the area moist to avoid cracking and pulling of the blisters and rash. I thought that if you got the shingles shot ...
