IN THE KNOW: What is glutathione?

Functioning as an important antioxidant for metabolism and body regulation, glutathione is a molecule composed of three amino acids (glutamin, cysteine and glycine) found in fresh foods or artificial products, such as oral and injectable nutritional supplements, inhaled drug or skin products. In its latest public advisory, the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS) said current scientific evidence is "not strong enough" to establish that glutathione-containing products are efficacious "skin whiteners" when tested on healthy volunteers. While glutathione products are generally recognized as safe, the PDS said various side effects, ranging from mild to severe, have been linked to gl...Keep on reading: IN THE KNOW: What is glutathione?.....»»

BLOGTABLE: Are there any coaches feeling the heat?

NBA.com blogtable The Cavs fired Ty Lue after an 0-6 start. Any other coaches out there who could be feeling the heat? * * * Steve Aschburner: This is as scientific a question as we get at the Blogtable lab. The methodology for answering: Work from the bottom of the standings up. Compare records to expectations. Factor in the years and money remaining on the coach’s contract, and voila! So in the West, I’m wondering about the Lakers’ Luke Walton (given the impatient LeBron factor) and OKC’s Billy Donovan. Washington’s Scott Brooks has an underachieving team on his hands in the East but three years on his contract. None of the other teams under water in that conference is fretting, with either low expectations, newish coaches or, in Miami’s case, a proven commodity and one of the league’s best. Shaun Powell:  Better keep an eye on Scott Brooks in Washington, especially if the Wizards go in the tank during their upcoming homestand. Not that he's the issue -- the Wizards have awful roster chemistry -- but you know how this usually ends. John Schuhmann: There are a few other teams off to disappointing starts, but I won't speculate on the job status of any coaches, which can be affected by internal relationships or the coach's contract status as much as it is by on-court success or failure. Sekou Smith: Cleveland's panic move to fire Tyronn Lue just six games into this season should not set off a vigorous round of coach purging. This was a very specific situation the Cavaliers were dealing with, what with the departure of LeBron James in free agency. That said, seats could be heating up in Washington and Minnesota. The Wizards have been disappointing early on and the Timberwolves are still operating with the uncertainty of the Jimmy Butler situation hanging over everything. As we all know, a coach's fate often rides the frantic rails of an owner or general manager's whims. So seats that aren't particularly warm now could heat up depending on what transpires between now and Christmas Day......»»
