Medical Research - A Hope for the Future

Posted by @johnbishop, Tue, Jan 15 1:08pm

Sometimes it's easy to focus on the negative aspects of health conditions when you know there is no cure for a condition and there are only treatments to control or alleviate the symptoms. One of the things I like to do is look to the future and hope that someday a researcher will come up with a cure or better treatment. Today I ran across an interesting article that holds some hope for a lot of us.

Shuttling Through Inner Space:
Complex medical issues like transplants, kidney disease, and cancer may be helped by knowing more about how cells communicate.

What research have you found that interests or motivates you?

@johnbishop Thank you immensely for posting this. I do not miss sugar and have noticed food tastes better and I feel better without it. Sugar now tastes bitter.

Another one that I thought was interesting…

New algorithms help predict diabetes treatment failure

From Mayo Clinic's Research Magazine

Recruiting Microbes to Fight Autoimmune Diseases … "Some 10 trillion bacteria, fungi and other microbes live on or in us — primarily in our gut but also our mouth, airway, on our skin, and nearly every other part of our body. They vastly outnumber our own human cells, calling into question just whose body is whose. For decades, this population, called the “microbiome,” was considered primarily a nuisance and a potential source of infection."

@johnbishop thanks for posting the video, it’s an awakening. If nothing else scares you into limiting sugar consumption that surely will.

thank you…I'll make a post here soon… I've always been of one, that like to Link peer review articles… The people can read the source of the in formation for themselves… The links have always been a big part of my research and meta-analysis which usually consists of hundreds of articles and if I'm not reading I'm in the lab so now I have thousands of peer review articles… Now luckily here I will only post several pertaining to small individual research articles no more than 3 to 4 per post…. When I'm at the lab at my other computer I will post… I have articles online and off…. in the article are located many different computers and laptops it's hard to keep up where one article or research paper is located at lol….
