ICU cares for people who have life-threatening conditions, such as a serious injury or illness, where they receive around-the-clock monitoring and life support.
Health professionals will be the first to say that depression is a serious mental illness that must not be taken lightly
Nature is a wonderful source of food, but did you know that you can count on it for medicine too?
I have been wary of doctors 97.5% my life due one that attended me when I was badly burned at the age of two due to an accident I caused in my curiosity of a big pot of potatoes my grandmother was boiling.
It may sound—and look—a lot like a disturbing horrific novel. It’s very real, however, and it’s the latest in what has become the sad fallout of a culture becoming increasingly accepting and affirming of suicide.
This device takes assisted suicide a step further, removing the physician aspect of it. Now you can just hop in a little machine and end your life.
Many high-grade serous carcinomas (HGSCs) of the pelvis are thought to originate in the distal portion of the fallopian tube. Serous tubal intra-epithelial carcinoma (STIC) lesions are the putative precursor to HGSC and identifiable in ~ 50% of advanced stage cases. To better understand the molecular etiology of HGSCs, we report a multi-center integrated genomic analysis of advanced stage tumors with and without STIC lesions and normal tissues. The most significant focal DNA SCNAs were shared between cases with and without STIC lesions.
Before we talk about the good doctors and the excellent ones that pave highways for future doctors to follow, we have to talk about the bad and even ugly doctors who are hurting and killing their patients. So many people die at the hands of modern medicine that it is one of the leading causes of death in the United States.

Ever heard of the 250,000 cotton farmers in central India who took their own lives after being manipulated by promises made by Monsanto? Monsanto claimed to be able to put an end to famine and promised unheard of riches and crop prosperity if the farmers would switch from their conventional farming methods to the use of GM seeds. Many farmers had to borrow money to purchase these seeds, and after several failed harvests, they were left with no income and out of control debt.
There’s a horrific case over in the U.K. that hasn’t gotten a ton of attention here, but it should. If we look closely, we may see our future — and our present.
