Whether you are or you are not, doctors recommend reading this issue cover to cover. Either way, it's going to help.
That page one question...more people are answering "no" than at any time over the past 50 years and more. But there are ways to restore health and happiness and overall salubriousness even when the world around us is in disarray. That's what much of this (and every) issue is about, cover to cover, s...
This projection was made in mid-summer.
If 95% of people in the U.S. wore masks, the model predicts that approximately 40,000 lives would be saved.
This is an interesting visualization of a number of COVID trends.

Are you a QUOTATION PUZZLE fan? If so, you probably saw the glitch in the grid in the Oct. 16 issue. That has been repaired, so at least the online version is correct now. You can print it out and solve it. #wordpuzzle #famousquotes
This is why we can't have nice things.
Sunny & clear at your house? You'd still better read our page 1 forecast. It could save your life.
Listening to the weatherman could save your life. Read our page one story to see how. Of course, there's a story on page 9 about how to protect lives with some delicious eating too. There are many ways to be salubrious, some with immediate consequences, others long-term. All matter equally, but it's...
If this mindless jet can wear a mask, I'm pretty sure intelligent people like you and I can too. #maskup #wearamask
This story reminds me of a famous quote: "The truth doesn't care if you believe it's the truth."

COVID-19 MISINFORMATION IS A PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS
Pretty good dose of reality. And it's only about 10 minutes long. Worth it.
"Government officials, regardless of political affiliation, should seek sound medical advice before communicating with their constituents. Appropriate public health information should be shared so that constituents are not harmed by following misinformed medical information. Government officials, ne...

Medical Examiner 10-2-2020
This month ranks as a 10 because it marks our return to print. Since April the Medical Examiner has been online only, but as we speak, newsstands and news racks sprinkled across the metro area are brimming with crisp new copies of Aiken-Augusta's Most Salubrious Newspaper. And if you're wondering wh...
This pandemic has been engulfed in misinformation and mixed, often contradictory messages almost from the start. It's probably to be expected with a "novel" virus, but in the months to come expect a world-record amount of post-pandemic analysis, and a mountain of recommendations from the Let's-Learn-From-Our-Mistakes Department.
Trump declared hydroxychloroquine a “game-changer” and once suggested injecting Covid-19 patients with disinfectants such as bleach.
BREAKING NEWS: The Medical Examiner returns to print this week for the first time since early April, when COVID restrictions made distribution difficult and unsafe. We'll be delivering to newsstands around Aiken and Augusta beginning Wednesday afternoon (Sept. 30). Many medical offices are still restricting access, but if you want deliveries to return to your office, let us know.
This week a number of tragic COVID milestones have come and gone: 200,000 deaths in the US and 1 million worldwide are the two most notable. Taking all reasonable precautions is still a wise course.
It is amazing how many people subscribe to this idiotic reasoning. I just read a post on NextDoor by a man who referred to the pandemic as "all this crap," and said wearing masks "is all about control." That statement cannot be logically or rationally defended.
This is so 2020.
Does it or doesn't it? It does.
New research co-led by a Johns Hopkins researcher suggests face coverings reduce viral exposure, limiting both transmission and severe disease. But is that evidence enough to turn the tide of public opinion now that masks have become politicized?
Sometimes a one-word headline says a lot. Read more at
Some things never change. This is from 1919. An estimated 500 million people were infected, and worldwide as many as 50 million people died from the Spanish flu pandemic.
This is real life in 2020.

This issue holds the record for the most salubrious edition we have ever posted in September of 2020. Woo hoo!
Let's go from anger mismanagement to anger management, shall we? As it turns out, we can all just get along. We'd also like to introduce several other salubrious topics: how to handle a 4-year-old, for instance (literal 4-year-olds, not the adults on page 1 who just ACT like 4-year-olds; how to eat....
This is what complete, total, unmitigated ignorance sounds and looks like. Incidentally, if the 99% survival rate she keeps repeating translates to a 1% death rate, about 3,300,000 people will die in the US alone. Apparently that's ok by her. NOT FUN FACT: In July, the US death rate from COVID-19 was 3.8%.

Anti-maskers, it's as simple as this.
If you're wearing a mask and it's doing its job, the outside of the mask could be contaminated. Anytime you touch it, think of this image.
