Thanksgiving Message from Congressman Marsha Blackburn

 

Congressman Marsha Blackburn

7th District of Tennessee

U.S. Congress

Washington, D.C. – Fellow Americans –

We are sending our weekly Blackburn report to you a little early this week.  I am certain that you and your family are much like mine and will enjoy the time to gather, eat some of your favorite foods, laugh, reminisce, and recount adventures together and probably enjoy a little football.

One of my favorite Thanksgiving activities is to have my grandsons join me in the kitchen to create some of our favorite foods and they always want to make an interesting dessert. This year, they want it to have a Vols theme, so it sounds as if orange frosting might be in my future.

American Heart Association says Popular Heartburn Medication may increase Ischemic Stroke Risk

 

American Heart Association Meeting Report

American Heart AssociationNew Orleans, LA – A popular group of antacids known as proton pump inhibitors, or PPIs, used to reduce stomach acid and treat heartburn may increase the risk of ischemic stroke, according to preliminary research presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2016.

“PPIs have been associated with unhealthy vascular function, including heart attacks, kidney disease and dementia,” said Thomas Sehested, M.D., study lead author and a researcher at the Danish Heart Foundation in Copenhagen, Denmark. “We wanted to see if PPIs also posed a risk for ischemic stroke, especially given their increasing use in the general population.”

Written by Preston Dyches
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – A thrilling ride is about to begin for NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. Engineers have been pumping up the spacecraft’s orbit around Saturn this year to increase its tilt with respect to the planet’s equator and rings. And on November 30th, following a gravitational nudge from Saturn’s moon Titan, Cassini will enter the first phase of the mission’s dramatic endgame.

Launched in 1997, Cassini has been touring the Saturn system since arriving there in 2004 for an up-close study of the planet, its rings and moons. During its journey, Cassini has made numerous dramatic discoveries, including a global ocean within Enceladus and liquid methane seas on Titan.
