An Artificial Womb – An End to Maternity as We Know It

Recently, a book written in French by a well known biophysicist and philosopher with degrees in Medicine and biophysics from the University of Paris caught my attention and filled me with bewilderment and shock. In this book called “The Artificial Uterus” (2005), Prof. Atlan resurrects Haldane’s 1924 prediction of an artificial womb which he coined […]

USEFUL HOME REMEDIES

Since this website is dedicated to a variety of subjects, this time I thought to offer some useful, inexpensive and probably unknown home remedies: Burns: When there is a burn, no matter how extensive it is, the first thing to do is to expose the wound under cold water until the heat stops burning the […]

ISRAEL – HOME OF SCIENTIFIC INNOVATIONS

In this essay,  I will abstain from the customary political indignation in view of the latest biased Jew bashing and anti-Semitism analogous to that of the medieval and World War II events, and focus instead on the steady medical breakthroughs emanating from Israel, the home of innovation. Although at some point, the use of gene […]

For the past months we have been ravaged by an unprecedented amount of news on the swine flu. When you realize that each year one million people […]

RNAi – A GENETIC SILVER BULLET?

Researchers are actively working on the use of genetics to cure malignant diseases such as cancer. Presently, treatment for cancer includes invasive and traumatic procedures affecting the patient such as chemotherapy and radiation without any guarantee that the disease will not recur. One of the most sought after remedies is based on RNA interference (RNAi) […]

IMPORTANT TIPS ON CANCER

Cancer is a complex family of diseases in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth and invasion of many organs. In spite of the billions of dollars invested into its cure, treatment of these malignant diseases remains invasive and devastating with no clear-cut hope for cure. The most invasive treatment to treat cancer is […]

CELLULAR WONDERS

The study of unveiling how genes work is of paramount importance for future progress in medicine. Since cracking the code, the human genome has changed the way researchers view how the human body functions. It wasn’t until the beginning of last century that the location of a gene was uncovered and in 1953 James D. […]

MEDICAL APPLICATIONS FOR STEM CELLS

Many of you probably wonder what stem cell therapy is all about. Well, research is going full steam all over the world and now in the U.S. since President Obama overturned Bush’s limitations on this particular investigation.  Most of the embryonic stem cells derive from early surplus human embryos, 5-6 days after fertilization and are […]

MEDICINAL ALTERNATIVES

Alternative medicine is a holistic approach to health and sickness for the maximum benefit of the patient. Presently, most conventional treatments for malignant diseases involve invasive surgery and chemotherapy which are a traumatizing experience for the patient causing hair loss, loss of appetite and psychological suffering. As indicated in a previous essay, research in embryonic […]
