Ancient Romans depicted Huns as barbarians. Their bones tell a different story.

To hear the Romans tell it, the arrival of Huns at the empire's border was an unmitigated catastrophe.

“The Huns in multitude break forth with might and wrath … spreading dismay and loss,” read a poem engraved on a wall in ancient Constantinople. “And naught but loss of life and breath their course shall ever stay.”

Pomegranate shown to slow the growth of cancer cells

Pomegranates, packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber and beneficial tannins, are currently of great interest to researchers for their effects on cardiovascular health. But this tasty fruit, scientifically known as Punica granatum, is no “one-trick pony” – it turns out that pomegranate may also have stunning chemoprotective effects.

China’s Vaccine Scandal Threatens Public Faith in Immunizations

First the news rippled across China that millions of compromised vaccines had been given to children around the country. Then came grim rumors and angry complaints from parents that the government had kept them in the dark about the risks since last year.

Now, the country’s immunization program faces a backlash of public distrust that critics say has been magnified by the government’s ingrained secrecy.

Song Zhendong, like many parents here, said he was reluctant to risk further vaccinations for his 10-month-old son.

Do We Really Want to Inject Our Children with Vaccines Made in China?

There are serious concerns being raised regarding contamination in vaccines, especially in light of the fact that many vaccines are now made in China.

Most childhood vaccines are now made in Chinese vaccine manufacturing facilities (Bolen Report, 2017). Unfortunately, foreign pharmaceutical companies are not subject to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) quality control regulations.

China has a history of producing tainted and/or toxic products.

Graves’ Disease vs. Subacute Thyroiditis: What’s The Difference?

Most cases of hyperthyroidism are autoimmune in nature. So when someone finds out that they have hyperthyroidism for the first time, there is a pretty good chance that they will be diagnosed with Graves’ Disease. However, this isn’t always the case, as some people with hyperthyroidism have multinodular toxic goiter, which frequently doesn’t involve an autoimmune component. And some people with hyperthyroidism have subacute thyroiditis. And that will be the focus of this blog post, as I’ll be discussing the differences between Graves’ Disease and subacute thyroiditis.

Mechanisms underlying direct programming of stem cells into motor neurons could lead to cell-replacement therapies

A team of scientists has uncovered details of the cellular mechanisms that control the direct programming of stem cells into motor neurons. The scientists analyzed changes that occur in the cells over the course of the reprogramming process. They discovered a dynamic, multi-step process in which multiple independent changes eventually converge to change the stem cells into motor neurons.
