Teen with crohn’s disease

DEAR DR. ROACH: My son always has had problems with his digestive tract, and at age 17 he was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. He was sometimes getting as many as 15 bouts of diarrhea a day. A succession of doctors gave him stronger and stronger drugs. He ended up on Humira. He was not happy about this. He took the drug for about one and a half years, through his freshman year in college. The doctors all told him that he would have to take this drug, with all of its horrific side effects, for the rest of his ...

The Megyn Kelly Effect

During a CNN town hall last week, Donald Trump offered up that he probably works too hard and if he had worked "a little bit less," he "probably wouldn't have had two marriages that didn't work out." Moderator Anderson Cooper then thanked Trump for participating in the event, and the last town hall before South Carolina Republicans hit voting booths was over. There were no follow-up questions about the role of Trump's -- so public it was front-page news - affair with second wife, Marla Maples, in the breakup of his first marriage.

Hillary Clinton hangs on

Excuse me, but there is still only one person running for president on the Democratic side who the American people can even imagine as president. It is not, God bless him, Bernie Sanders. I say "God bless him" because I think he believes deeply and passionately in what he's saying. I think he even believes that saying it, as a candidate or president, is enough. On that I disagree. Free college? Close down Wall Street? Sorry: There aren't that many billionaires, and pension funds are among the biggest players on Wall Street, but don't get me started ...

No candidate is perfect

Let me tell you something people don't often say when arguing about presidential candidates on Facebook: No candidate is perfect.

APPLE’S SECURITY CORE

I view Apple with almost as much loathing as I save for overzealous federal prosecutors. My last Apple phone was a lemon. The "Genius Bar" isn't. When I hear Apple extol its vaunted regard for privacy, I think of all the invasive personal questions my iPhone used to ask before I could download a free app. That was before I switched to Android. Liberated from 1 Infinite Loop - that's is Apple headquarters' precious Cupertino street address - I am free of owners' cultish reverence for all things iPhone.

Concerns of Recurrent tias

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have a 69-year-old woman friend who has been having TIAs for over a year. She averages one a week. Doctors are puzzled. They last 15 to 20 minutes, with drooling and numbness on the left side. I am very worried about what is going to happen. Is this normal for an older person? Aren't TIAs a prelude to a major stroke? What do you think should be done? -- Anon.

TRUMP: THEY LIED

It's one thing to disagree with the decision to go to war in Iraq. That, believe it or not, was once a minority view. According to a Gallup poll taken in March 2003, the night after the Iraq war began, 76 percent supported President George W. Bush's decision. Two months after the invasion, a Gallup poll found 79 percent of Americans thought the war was justified - about half of those said, "The war will be justified regardless of whether (weapons of mass destruction) are found."

SUPREME COURTSHIP

Even before Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released his before-the-corpse-is-cold statement suggesting that the next president should pick Justice Antonin Scalia's successor, it was clear the Republican Senate is not going to confirm whomever President Obama picks. There's too much at stake. A new Democratic justice would shift the balance of power on the big bench. Facing the same dynamics, Senate Democrats would not have approved a nominee put forward by George W. Bush in his last year.

Leave the Scalia chair vacant

It is a measure of the stature and the significance of Justice Antonin Scalia that, upon the news of his death at a hunting lodge in Texas, Washington was instantly caught up in an unseemly quarrel over who would succeed him.

Body doesn’t need help to detox and cleanse

DEAR DR. ROACH: It's a new year, and many of my friends are embarking on a detox or cleanse. Is there such a thing as beneficial detoxing and cleansing? If so, how is it done properly, and what are the benefits? -- D.M.H.
