  • Also, for the purpose of efficiency, consider your water.  If you have hard water, your humidifier may have lower output.  That can be easily remedied by using distilled water, which has lower mineral content than most tap water.
  • While some humidifiers such as the Vicks V745A use a heating element to create steam, the hot water and steam can create scalding hazards.  Consumer Reports recommends keeping steam models away from small children.  

  • MEDICATIONS AND DRIVING DON'T ALWAYS MIX

    A recent study in France found that about 3 in 100 car wrecks may be caused by people taking prescription drugs.  Details about the study were written up in a recent blog post at www.ConsumerReportsHealth.org where the types of drugs most likely to increase car accidents are summarized, leading off with treatments for diabetes that lower an individual's blood sugar. Other drugs include treatments for epilepsy or Parkinson disease, as well as other medications notably antidepressants, antipsychotics, strong painkillers, and tranquilizers.

    The key takeaway is that, while not all medications affect one's driving, quite a few do.
