Exercise can give insufficient vein valves a leg up

DEAR DR. ROACH: I'm a 69-year-old woman in excellent health. I take valsartan and doxazosin for high blood pressure. I am concerned because I have developed swelling in my left foot and ankle, with none at all in the right foot. Until now, I have never had any foot or ankle swelling, even in the hottest weather or during long periods of standing.

Dems’ selective outrage about lenient sentences

Los Angeles Assistant District Attorney Michele Hanisee was gobsmacked when California lawmakers raged against the light sentence meted out to a former Stanford student convicted of sexually assaulting a woman while she was passed out behind a campus trash bin. Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky sentenced Brock Turner, 20, to six months in jail - he's likely to serve a mere three months - as well as three years of probation and a lifetime on the sex offender registry. Outraged at this headline-grabbing punishment, 16 Democratic Assembly members and senators wrote to Santa Clara District Attorney Jeff Rosen urging him to ...

Trump’s 3 challenges: Himself, media & GOP

After finally getting the endorsement of House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Donald Trump frittered the goodwill away. Trump called a judge born in Indiana a "Mexican." Rather than apologize, Trump, at first, doubled and triple down, until finally saying that he didn't mean that the judge's ethnicity equaled bias.

The Department of Justice and God (Arabic) be praised

"I pledge allegiance to (omitted) may God protect him (Arabic), on behalf of (omitted)," said the man who killed 49 innocent people in an Orlando gay bar on June 12. Or so reported a redacted transcript of phone conversations between the shooter and police. The transcript airbrushed all reference to Islam and the Islamic State. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch told ABC's "This Week" that her department was releasing a partial transcript "because we're not going to be, for example, broadcasting his pledges of allegiance. We are trying not to revictimize those who went through that horror."

Late-night pulpit for banning guns

The mass shooting in Orlando really infuriated liberals all over again about the lack of gun control -including liberal journalists and comedians. NBC "Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt blandly promoted how "late-night hosts have once again found themselves straddling the lines between comedians and consolers."

Obama on Orlando: It’s all about the guns

It did not take long for President Barack Obama to inject a plea for more gun control in his reaction to the Orlando terror massacre. In his five-minute, no-questions-taken-statement, Obama said: "Today marks the most deadly shooting in American history. The shooter was apparently armed with a handgun and a powerful assault rifle. This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, or in a house of worship, or a movie theater, or in a nightclub. And we have to ...

How not to take blood pressure

DEAR DR. ROACH: Recently, I had my annual checkup and nervously had to wait a while. The doctor's assistant came in and proceeded to take my blood pressure. She then looked at me disparagingly and said: "Do you always have a high blood pressure"? Of course, when she said this it probably doubled. Why can't an assistant quietly enter the numbers into the laptop and let the doctor make the determination rather than leave the patient there wondering whether he or she is going to have a stroke at any minute? The doctor usually takes it before I ...
