Maps, Graphics and Global Perspectives

     A friend sent me a link to something that I found fascinating and I’m hoping you do also. Click here to see 22 maps that will show you where the wealthiest Americans live by state, the median age by country, the relative size of different countries and a host of other facts. Thanks to Nancy McMoneagle for sharing that with us…by the way, Nancy heads up a fascinating company herself, The Robert Monroe Institute, and I highly recommend their Gateway seminars.

     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      Dr Charles Lambert at the Florida Hospital Pepin Heart Institute is inserting a flex stent to treat peripheral arterial disease (PAD). He says the preliminary information indicates “it’s going to be a quantum leap forward.”
  •      Keith Pardee, PhD, Research Scientist at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University is working on a new paper test that could mean diagnosing diseases like ebola in under an hour in the field and thus “identify people more rapidly and define the outbreak more easily.”
  •      Dr Irene Litvan at UC San Diego Department of Neural Science is using an old drug, Isradipine, to treat Parkinson’s. It has been used for years to treat high blood pressure and now the phase II study found it was safe to use for Parkinson’s and may slow or stop Parkinson’s. The larger trial is still enrolling patients.

     More warnings about statins: Dr Barbara Roberts at Brown University says about 75% of the people put on statins are not put on it because they have vascular disease but just because they have risk factors and there are better ways to reduce the risk factors in her opinion. Read the report and talk to your own doctor before getting started on a lifetime of statins that may have significant side effects, especially in women, who have been so under represented in clinical studies.

     Permanent LVADs is the topic of discussion in our report on “Bionic Woman” and Dr David Rawitscher at The Heart Hospital Baylor,Plano says not only is it a good thing but he also says “it’s lifesaving.”

     In case you missed them, you may want to check our past reports, Premium Content in Archives Premium Content in ArchivesSmart House for Seniors Premium Content in ArchivesEffects of Early Exposure to Antidepressants. Premium Content in the Archives may be purchased for as little as $9 for 24-hour, unlimited access. If you would like to access Premium Content for the first time click here.

     If you like blueberries, lemons, cinnamon and garlic, read out final report about “5 Natural Cold and Flu Fighters.”

And there's more where that came from...

ABBA

“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato and Aristotle... (or) Einstein's Theory of Relativity ... (or) the Second Theory of Thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
-- Martin Luther King Jr
