TRENTON - Under a bill moving through the Legislature, minors in New Jersey wouldn't be able to get Botox injections unless a doctor says the procedure is medically necessary. The Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee approved legislation Thursday to clamp down on injections of botulinum toxin for cosmetic purposes in people younger than 18. The bill cites a study by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery that said teenagers received more than 12,000 Botox injections in 2009, almost twice as many as in 2008.

They sipped martinis and cosmopolitans. They nibbled on crudites and bruschetta. They mingled with doctors and toasted the marvels of modern medicine.

I am not breathing. I am lying on a procedure table in my doctor's office, passed out, but can still hear what is going on around me. I am lying there, passed out and not breathing, because of the pain. Migraine. This one was triggered by the requirements that I neither eat nor drink before a routine, midafternoon medical test. The predictable headache came early and burst sometime before the procedure, growing until the intensity finally shut my body down. For a few seconds, I feel finally free of the terrible ordeal of breathing.

Question: I was diagnosed with esophageal achalasia a few years ago. I did not have any reflux issues - just difficulty with food entering my stomach. I've had two dilation procedures, which helped for a while. Carbonated soda with meals seems to help the food move along. I rejected Botox injections of the esophagus because the effect is temporary. I haven't had any treatments in several years and food still collects at the point of stomach entry. Is a soft diet the best cure? Answer: Sometimes we just can't relax.

Praise the Lord and pass the botulism, America. Time to turn that frown upside down, for as long as the effects of the neurotoxin injections last, anyway. Now that official FDA approval has come down for its use in cosmetic wrinkle removal, Botox is poised for Viagra-level stardom. Made from one of the deadliest poisons on Earth, Botox was originally developed to treat muscle spasms. It wasn't long before administering docs noticed a unique side effect - it temporarily freezes the muscles that cause facial wrinkles.

The twists and turns on road to splitsville Many are the reasons to break up with someone. Your squeeze won't do the dishes. Or is bad with money. Or votes for the wrong people. Or sleeps with the wrong people. Or etcetera. But how about this one?: "I'm breaking up with you because my ex-hubby says I'm a bad parent because I want our son to get Botox treatments for his stinky feet. " "Oh, that old chestnut," you say. "Hear it all the time. " Well, it's a new one on us. We don't even understand it. Yet this is the reason, if the Web site Mail Online is to be believed, that Sharon Stone, 50 if she's a day, is splitting with 24-year-old babykins Chase Dreyfous.

Coroner: Two-crash pilot died drunk A pilot who walked away from a helicopter crash and later slammed his plane into a cypress swamp was legally intoxicated at the time of his death.

No body part is off-limits anymore as some in beauty-crazed America chase a new look: sculpted genitals and bold J.Lo butts. These novel, and increasingly popular, cosmetic procedures will undoubtedly be talked about when the 5,000-member American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) arrives in Philadelphia today for its annual meeting. But the bigger buzz at the Pennsylvania Convention Center likely will revolve around three fast-growing, less titillating developments: Botox for younger patients looking to prevent creases later on. New wrinkle-filling injections that last longer.

Items on Jeff Wojciechowski's to-do list before a 2010 family vacation to Cancun included renewing his passport, shopping for beach wear, and getting a Botox injection. The procedure wasn't to smooth out wrinkles. Instead, the injection went into his bladder muscle, to give the 63-year-old Fort Washington man a respite from incontinence that has plagued him since a 2006 construction accident left him paralyzed from mid-chest down. Though Botox has become synonymous with the temporary elimination of wrinkles, what's less well known is its application across medicine.
