What happened to our wealth?

If you find yourself traveling this summer, take a closer look at America's deteriorating infrastructure - our crumbling roads, sidewalks, public parks, and train and bus stations.

Thirteen Republican men repeat Hilary’s mistake

They went into a room to write a health care bill. Didn't need any women. For diversity they had Ted Cruz, still famous at Harvard for only allowing Ivy League grads into his law school study group. A man of the people. Didn't need to hear from the public. What do we know about health care anyhow?

Urban America’s underclass: More money not solution

PBS NewsHour aired a story last year about Milwaukee, saying many residents call the city "the worst place to be a black man in America." It talked about last year's riots in the city after a cop shot a black man. One black Milwaukee resident explained that this is "what happens when you inflict poverty" on poor black residents. "Inflict poverty"?

Uncontrollable hand shaking may be focal seizure

DEAR DR. ROACH: Yesterday, my right hand started shaking uncontrollably. It did not stop for two hours. Earlier this year, I found that it shook whenever I tried to write, and I had to utilize a note-taker. My left hand has had issues for years, shaking mostly when reading the paper or holding something. I am 66 and have a number of underlying conditions, including two types of epilepsy. I have not taken anything for epilepsy in several years; I just try to avoid all triggers. Could this be the focal form manifesting itself? -- S.G.

High-dose vitamin C supplements unlikely to prevent dementia

DEAR DR. ROACH: Is there any evidence that high doses of vitamin C have decreased or prevented the risk of Alzheimer's disease? I ask this question because none of the people I know who have developed Alzheimer's have been taking high doses of vitamin C daily (4,000 to 6,000 milligrams). So, I wonder if this safe, inexpensive, natural remedy, found in health-food stores, could have stopped these tragedies by preventing atherosclerosis in the brain. -- A.S.

Does neomycin skin allergy preclude getting shingles vaccine?

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have been tested for skin allergies twice in the past 30-plus years. I am a 71-year-old female in good health. One of the things I tested positive for both times was neomycin (the worst reaction I had was a rash on my foot when using a cream containing neomycin). This is an ingredient in the shingles shot. I've been told by my doctor and the pharmacist that I cannot have the shingles shot. What would happen if I did get the shot? Is it worse than getting the shingles? Are they working on a shingles ...

Is there a noninvasive alternative to bypass surgery?

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 70-year-old, retired, white male with no major health history, who is not overweight, diabetic or a smoker. All my bloodwork and my blood pressure are within range for my age. I have had a very healthy diet for a long time, lead a sedentary lifestyle and have some family history of heart-related issues, primary being my mother's heart-attack death at 64. However, she had numerous major health events throughout her life and was a heavy smoker with a poor diet, etc. I have had some recent mild symptoms: occasional shortness of breath and ...

Just what are dogs thinking?

Dear Didi: I wish I could crawl into my dog's head and see what she is thinking. Do you have a book that you would recommend that speaks to the intelligence of dogs or the lack thereof? Sometimes my dog just seems oblivious. I point at things and he stares at my pointer finger. Do we give them more credit than they are due? Or are they seriously underestimated? -curious dog parent

Medical research has more than just a profit motive

DEAR DR. ROACH: I recently have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I have read all sorts of pamphlets and brochures; I have been to classes at the local hospital to learn about managing this disease; I have seen the vast array of supplies for testing blood sugar at my local pharmacy. I have come away with a theory on which I would like to hear your opinion.
