Dr. Hugh James Davis Jr., 69, the gynecologist who invented the birth control device known as the Dalkon shield. Although he was a pioneer in laparoscopy and held more than 30 patents on medical instruments used in abdominal surgery, Davis was most praised--and most reviled--over the intrauterine device. The Food and Drug Administration suspended use of the Dalkon shield in 1974 after 11 deaths and 209 cases of spontaneous abortion. It was taken off the market in 1984.

Question: Would there be any advantage to having one of those special drinks after exercising to replace the electrolytes that are used up, or will the regular foods you eat take care of this?

What an athlete needs most afer a workout is fluid. The electrolytes lost during exercise can be replaced through the foods you eat.
