What age is ideal for children to take swim lessons? – Columbia Daily Tribune – Swim Nappy [cached]

When to start swimming lessons depends in part on your child and your family, said Julie Gilchrist, a medical epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. Is your child emotionally and physically ready for swim lessons? Does your family spend a lot of time near water or on a boat, or is there a pond on your property?

Choosing a program comes with its own set of questions, beginning with a look at pool temperature and quality. As for teaching style, look for encouragement, not pressure or coercion, Gilchrist said. "Are kids pushed to do things they don't want to do?"
Lessons for kids too young to swim should include safety skills such as controlled breathing and floating on one's back, Gilchrist says.

3 Weight-Lifting Lies [cached]

"Stretching increases flexibility, but most injuries occur within the normal range of motion," says Julie Gilchrist, M.D., a researcher with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "Stretching and warming up have just gone together for decades. It's simply what's done, and it hasn't been approached through rigorous science. Gilchrist and other researchers determined, after reviewing more than 350 articles and studies that investigated the connection between stretching and injuries, that stretching in warm-ups do not significantly affect injury occurrence. Dr. Gilchrist says increasing your blood flow through warm-ups helps prime muscles for a workout.

Prescription Drug Epidemic Blamed for Rise in Teen Deaths by Poisoning [cached]

"It is tragic to see this epidemic beginning in our young people," said Dr. Julie Gilchrist, a medical epidemiologist in the CDC's Division of Unintentional Injury Prevention, noting that prescription painkiller and opiate abuse is now widespread among older teens.

"There seems to be a trend for prescription painkillers almost to replace marijuana as a gateway drug for substance abuse such as heroin," she said. Many teens are experimenting first with painkillers taken from their family and friends medicine cabinets, rather than street drugs like marijuana.
