مقاله جالبی بود.
و بر مبنای همان ضرب المثل قدیمی فارسی که می گوید:
اندرون از طعام خالی دار تا در آن نور معرفت بینی.

I had a hernia repair with a mesh 2 years ago and I haven't had any complications so far. Does that suggest that I'll be fine or is this something that can start years later?

AstraZeneca marketed a drug that should have never been approved in the first place: Nexium. They did it solely for money, without any benefit to society.

That doesn’t sound too good. Now i’m Never going to be able to choose how to dry my hands. Looks like I’m just going to have to deal with hands covered in water that dry on their own until someone finds an alternative solution :(

Mersi for the concern and well-wishes Varjavand-jaan.

Sounds like an informative book that I should read. Thanks for the heads-up.

I hope there is nothing seriously wrong with your father. I wish him well and a long happy and worry-free life.
That is not probably a problem that arises at older ages. All the cases, Dr. Sullivan discusses in his book are related to younger individuals who think they have physical disease while the test results show otherwise. Reading this book is helpful to manage such cases and to discern the unexplainable phenomena that medical science has yet to uncover and more importantly to understand the relationship between body and mind.

"The hardest thing, Dr. O’Sullivan explains, is to tell a patient that he is not suffering from what he believes is a disease. It may be a psychological problem that is, in fact, rooted in his mind."

I am literally in the midst of dealing with such a situation. My 87 year-old father is convinced, and I mean convinced that he has cancer. We have done blood work, scans, repeatedly...as in, every two or three weeks (or so it feels like), but nope...he's still convinced that he's terminally ill and that more tests are needed. Alas, I don't fight it and just go with the flow, providing him the space to vent/complain about his condition and worries. Telling him that he's wrong (based on test results) is futile and usually only aggravates our dynamic, so instead, I keep it positive and celebrate all that we have to be grateful for...like, this moment.

The bodily reactions to emotional incidences, such as fear, anxiety, stress, failure, rejection, are normal and do not indicate any illness. However, such reactions are severe, they result in illness that often impairs or alters somatic functions. Instilling positive mental attitudes is an effective mechanism to help these patients with the process of healing. Helping a patient to develop positive attitudes is quite helpful; however, many doctors overlook this simply because they do not either believe in the healing power of positive thinking, or they simply have not mastered the art of doing so.

A far-reaching interview that covers lots of ground. From America's standing in the world, China's rise, Citizens United, labor, challenging the status-quo and more. Part I can be found here: promarket.org/eliot-spitzer-u-s-never-will-ability-hold-powerful-account/

ES: "Let me state it in a less purely cynical way—it’s not that I’m not cynical, trust me. The status quo is enormously powerful. Very few people really want to look at it and say, “The system’s not working. We’ve got to do something different.”

If you’re an elected official, what brought you to the dance is what you want to keep doing. By definition, you’re there as a consequence of the current system, so how bad can it really be?"

-----

The Democratic party is slogging its way left and having an intense, but much needed debate about its values, priorities, agenda. This is encouraging. I'm also hopeful that momentum eventually builds around the repudiation of special interests/big money -- riddance of such funding would help optics (confidence in our politicians/system) and should help cynical, would-be voters to get off the sidelines and participate. And not to mention, if a politicians funding is overwhelmingly from micro/small donations, it should steer them towards working more impact-fully (and truthfully) for the people. If a politician can't inspire enough people to donate a few bucks to fund their campaign, should they be running anyway? Big money often props up hand-picked politicians (artificially) that we, the people, are hardly inspired by. Kick out the big money and we'll likely have a better crop of politicians to choose from.

I used to take Noopept on a daily basis. It did help with concentration but you cannot take it continuously. I stopped after almost 3 months. Now I just take them when needed when the workload is high.

I was a young boy visiting West Africa when I first saw a person with albinism. Between the shock/confusion of seeing this and feeling really uncomfortable with the unfamiliar settings, I repeatedly begged my mother that we take the next flight back to the States. I was scared. By the end of our 3 week trip (which was great!), the site of seeing people w/ albinism became quite normal.

It's really great that AlJazeera is educating their readers about people with albinism and especially the persecution that they continue to endure. Were it not for these two articles I would still be referring to people with albinism as 'albinos.'

Thanks for sharing.

Unfortunately is always the poorer people that pay the high price. Serious environmental crises are looming everywhere. The technology to produce greener energy is there but the will is not.
