Many Areas of State Have High Levels of Radon

FRANKFORT, KY. - (Thu 20 Apr 2017) - As part of Earth Day 2017, the Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH), within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS), is helping to spread the word about the important role the environment plays in your health. DPH encourages Kentuckians to learn more about the potential health effects of radon exposure and how to check your home for this potentially dangerous gas.

"Earth Day is an excellent time to consider the environment, its impact on our health and hazards that may be in our own home," said CHFS Secretary Vickie Yates Brown Glisson. "Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer next to smoking and is prevalent in many areas of Kentucky. It's time we all learned a little more about radon, how to detect it in our home and what can be done if levels are elevated."

PTs suggests conservative treatment for opioid overuse

The American Physical Therapy Association has launched a national campaign called #ChoosePT to raise awareness about the risks of opioids and the choice of physical therapy as a safe alternative for long- term pain management.

By Jeffrey Buis, PTA & Kyle Salsbury, PT, DPT
Personal Commentary

Making the Choice: Physical Therapy Over Opioids "Physical therapy and other conservative treatments should always be considered first before medication or surgery." And "Don't put anything into your body that's not good for you and don't have surgery unless it is the last resort with all others treatments having been exhausted."

These sound like something our grandparents would have told us, being just good common sense.

It is not a secret that all medications have side effects. This begs the question: Why choose opioid pain killers when physical therapy may be a viable option?

Cold weather increases risk for carbon monoxide poisoning

Generators, heating and cooking devices can be deadly

By Barbara Fox/Beth Fisher

Frankfort, KY - As temperatures drop and the risk for carbon monoxide poisoning increases, Kentuckians are urged to be aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning due to improper use of heating or cooking devices.

Items such as kerosene or propane gas stoves and ovens have been used as alternative heat sources indoors, sometimes with tragic results. Since these devices emit a colorless, odorless gas called carbon monoxide as a by-product, improper use can lead to severe cases of carbon monoxide poisoning. The Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH), which is part of the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) advises Kentuckians to follow these steps taken from guidelines issued by the National Center for Environmental Health to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning:
