Phlebotomy. Even the
word sounds archaic—and that’s nothing compared to the slow, expensive,
and inefficient reality of drawing blood and having it tested. As a
college sophomore, Elizabeth Holmes envisioned a way to reinvent

Why did we have to learn of this via a post in New Zealand, when this was done in the US?
Scientists have pinpointed a specific part of the brain where Alzheimer's begins and traced how the disease spreads.
brain scans of 96 healthy adults over the age of 65 revealed the first

Reduced metabolic activity was seen in the lateral
entorhinal cortex (LEC), a small region linked to the hippocampus where
long-term memories are stored.

Not only is America increasingly growing gray, it also turns out it's

now seem to be finding it inchiropractic care
The usual approach to arthritis commonly involves over-the-counter and

I am a HUGE fan of technological innovation. Here is something that really thrills me!
It's been a long time coming, but a real, functioning tricorder is
almost here, and we got to see the final hardware for it today at CES.
Scanadu Scout is its name, and in case you aren't familiar, we've been
tracking the little hand-held human health tracker sinceits inception
in late 2012. Since that first glimpse of a prototype, the device has gotten a
Ah! Life after death, the eternal question. Appears we have an answer . . . from science . . .
A book titled “Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe“
has stirred up the Internet, because it contained a notion that life

Oh, this one's great. Of all the "fads" I've seen in my years this is one of the worst.

Haven't posted in quite a while and have several articles I've been saving to share here.
This article talks about heart problems . . . it ain't what you think it is!!!
We physicians with all our experience, know how and authority often
acquire a rather large selfishness that tends to make it hard to accept
we are wrong. So, here it is. I openly admit to being mistaken. As a
heart surgeon with 25 years experience, having done more than 5,000
open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical
and scientific proof.
To meTHISis quite logical. To others who view chiropractors only for bad backs or neck pain this may be a surprise.
Most individuals believe that cardiovascular disease can only be
