FDA weighs prescriptions without medical visits
American Medical News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is considering a move that would allow patients to obtain prescription medications without ever seeing a doctor. Instead, patients would use technology to evaluate their needs. The new model of drug distribution being considered by the FDA would allow some drugs for chronic conditions, such as asthma and allergies, to be sold under "conditions of safe use." More

University of California at San Diego via Medical Xpress    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For the first time, researchers at the University of California at San Diego have peered inside a living mouse cell and mapped the processes that power the celebrated health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids.

Healing with Language: Emphasis and subordination
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What you choose to emphasize and to subordinate can have a profound effect on another person's response. This is especially true in medical situations. At some point in your career, you may have heard a physician providing a patient with information required for "informed consent."

Emphasis on the Negative
: First, you may die during surgery. Although that doesn't happen often, it's a risk.
In the above example, the possibility of death is emphasized, and the infrequency with which that happens is subordinated.

Emphasis on the Positive
: Although death during surgery is a possible risk, it rarely occurs.
In general, put negative ideas in a subordinate clause beginning with a subordinating adverb or conjunction, such as "although." Other subordinating words include before, after, although, because, since and when.

Compare the following sentences:
  • The medicine tastes bad, but you will feel better when you have been taking it for a few days.
  • You might think that the medicine tastes bad, but you'll be glad that you've been taking it in just a few days.
Both sentences use the "magic but" to emphasize the focus on the positive outcome, but the second sentence includes the use of might, which presupposes might not, and adds just to emphasize the short amount of time it will take for you to feel better now.

'Fat' tax to lower obesity
ABC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
VideoBrief Calories, number of hours spent exercising, number of pounds to lose, those who are overweight now have a new number to worry about: a "fat" tax. Adding a high tax on unhealthy food and drinks may help slow the rising rates of obesity, according to a new study published in the British Medical Journal. Previous studies suggest that the sharp tax increase on cigarettes in 2009 has contributed to the dramatic decrease in the number of smokers in the U.S. And it's hoped a "fat" tax would work the same way.

Acupuncture may allow people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease to breathe a bit easier. In a new study of 68 people with COPD, some got acupuncture, along with their daily medication, for three months. Others got a sham acupuncture treatment. Those who received acupuncture were able to walk longer without becoming breathless, compared to those who got the sham acupuncture treatment. More
