Teaching techniques on patients who can actually provide feedback.
What a concept. I’m continually amazed at the stupid things the medical profession does, just because “that’s how we’ve always done it.” I also think there remains a lot of rampant sexism in the profession, with deleterious effects on womens’ health.
Good riddance to it.
I disagree about pre-existing conditions, though. That requirement completely screws up the insurance markets. We need a different solution for that issue.
Maybe I should start taking it:
“If we consider our results and then we also consider what results have been achieved in clinical trials with cystic fibrosis patients, we are probably looking at the same mechanism(s), whereby antibiotics are removing inflammatory senescent cells and boosting healthy ones.
“Undoubtedly, our results have significant implications for potentially alleviating or reversing tissue dysfunction and slowing the development of many ageing-associated diseases,” explains Professor Federica Sotgia, a co-lead of this study.
Here’s an interview with her, about her disability. I’ve met her; she’s great. I hope they can come up with better treatments, or a cure.
…are just plain wrong.
Nice to see op-eds like this.
This article is sort of amazing in its complete lack of discussion of the keto revolution, and its old timey referrals to “diet” and “exercise” and calories.
Myths versus facts, from Nina Teicholz:
I think the larger question is why we are seeing such a sudden rash of anti-keto stories. So many of them quote no experts [sic] sources and do not provide citations for their claims. Skeptics with little acquaintance with the diet are quoted exclusively instead. From a journalistic perspective, this lack of balance of viewpoints and the failure to back up claims with evidence falls below basic reporting standards. Offenders on this list include even the Harvard School of Public Health, which recently published more than one unsourced, one-sided article on the keto diet (This is in addition to the Lancet Public Health article cited above, by Harvard researchers, which suggests that a low-carb diet kills you). These stories could reflect lazy reporting or they could very well be scare tactics to steer people away from the keto diet. Why would reporters or scientists at Harvard be doing such a thing? That’s material for another post. Stay tuned.
I’ll look forward to her thesis.
Aubrey de Grey is working on it whether you like it or not.
The arguments against it do generally strike me as irrational.
Does the appendix play a role?
…grown in a bioreactor.
Faster, please, though I don’t think I have an immediate need, fortunately.
