KU researchers say migraine sufferers should avoid plastic

Oh how I wish we could stop oversimplifying the causes of Migraine Disease and triggers of Migraine attacks by recommending things like people "stop eating plastic."

I don't doubt for a second there is a connection between estrogen levels and Migraine in many people. Unfortunately, there is no one fix that helps every single person living with the condition. For most people there are multiple factors involved with the triggering of Migraine attacks. I fear that telling people to "stop eating plastic" perpetuates the myth that it's your own fault if you deal with frequent Migraine attacks. But I do believe strongly in minimizing the factors we can control.

I'd also like to point out just how incorrect Dr. Berman is when she states there is a lack of new Migraine drugs on the horizon. In addition to being a 30 year Migraine patient myself, I'm also a patient advocate and educator who just returned from the American Headache Society's professional conference (AHS Scottsdale Headache Symposium), where I learned even more about a new category of medications for Migraine called CGRP receptor antagonists. I'd highly encourage any Migraineurs reading this comment to Google that term for more information.

'K-State' getting new brand

So was the point of this article to give arrogant KU hangers on the opportunity to throw cheap shots at K-State or what? Pretty lame "news" coverage, LJ World.

For the record, I have degrees from both institutions.

Downtown parking: Is shortage real or perceived?

I definitely think it's an issue of perception. Certainly if you're going to particularly crowded events at certain times of day you need to plan ahead a little, but it's really no problem at all. Not sure why anyone is bringing "fat people" into the discussion, though.

Do you think Kansas legislative staff should be included in a proposed pay cut for state employees?

I don't understand why this is the question you decided to ask. Most people probably don't even know how these employees differ from other state employees. In fairness, yes, they should receive the exact same cut as the employees of any other branch in government. When the legislature isn't in session executive branch rules apply to they anyhow. However, I don't support the idea of cutting any employee salaries. This will do nothing but drive more talented people into private sector employment.
