Hey there,

I have some great news to share with you today! It looks like Medicare is expected to negotiate the prices of obesity drugs soon, which is a big step forward in making these important medications more accessible. In other exciting news, the U.S. has banned asbestos, marking a positive move towards protecting public health. And in the U.K., researchers and government agencies are teaming up to accelerate individual genetic therapies, bringing hope to children with rare inherited conditions.

On top of that, it seems that drug overdose deaths have stayed steady in 2022, which is a hopeful sign after years of rising rates. And a new analysis predicts a dramatic decline in global fertility rates, which could have a transformative impact on population patterns by 2100.

In addition to these updates, it’s wonderful to hear that mindfulness techniques can help us tame fears and worries. Deep breathing and other mindfulness practices can be incredibly powerful tools for finding calm and centeredness in our daily lives.

I hope these updates bring a smile to your face and inspire a sense of optimism for the future. Take care and stay positive!


Stay Well!
