Comment The Post Below...


Readers:

It may be extremely hot outdoors, but I still need to get 
some exercise. I usually take a long walk or play basket-
ball in my yard, but it has just been too hot. 

I've taken to running up and down the stairs with wrist 
and ankle weights on. I remember doing this when I was 
younger. Before I had the weights, I held large soup cans 
in my hands as I traveled up and down those stairs. It 
worked great. I never got dehydrated like I would if I had 
done this outside. It was a great way to get some exercise 
without having to spend a ton of money of face the 
unbelievable heat. 

Even if the weather isn't cooperating that doesn't mean you 
can stop getting a healthy dose of exercise. 

Regards,
Steve

      Scientists harvest insulin from safflower

CALGARY, Alberta - A Calgary biotech company says it is 
has developed a method of producing large amounts of human 
insulin from genetically modified safflower plants. The 
Globe and Mail said the innovation could change the 
economics of the diabetes market. Worldwide demand for 
insulin is forecast to soar by 2010 because more people 
are developing diabetes and are being diagnosed earlier 
in their lives -- and because of the development of new 
products such has inhaled insulin, which requires five to 
10 times the amount of injected insulin, said Andrew Baum, 
president and chief executive officer of SemBioSys Genetics 
Inc. SemBioSys says it can make more than one kilogram of 
human insulin per acre of safflower production. That amount 
could treat 2,500 diabetic patients for one year and meet 
the world's total projected insulin demand in 2010 with 
less than 16,000 acres of safflower production, the 
newspaper said. 

Baum said the company's plans to demonstrate by the end 
of the year that its product works as well as insulin 
currently on the market to control blood glucose levels, 
setting the stage for a request to the U.S. Food and Drug 
Administration for approval to begin human clinical 
testing at the end of 2007.
