Do You Want a Shock?  High Cholesterol for a Longer Life?
 By Dr. Gifford Jones  Monday, March 2, 2015

A recent medical tip to readers sparked a quick reaction. It reported a study that those with higher blood cholesterol lived longer! This is contradictory to everything we’ve been told for years.

Stroke Update: What’s Missing will Cost Lives
 By Dr. Gifford Jones  Sunday, March 1, 2015

Every year 650,000 North Americans suffer a lethal stroke, or one that leads to debilitating mental or physical problems. The American Stroke Association (ASA) has issued an important update on how to prevent this disaster for those who have not had a major stroke or a mini one. But why do prestigious university medical centers continue to make a grievous error that costs lives?

Tagging drugs to fight counterfeit medicines
 By American Chemical Society  Wednesday, February 25, 2015

The U.S. and other countries are enacting rules to clamp down on the sales of fake pharmaceuticals, which pose a public health threat. But figuring out a system to track and authenticate legitimate drugs still faces significant obstacles, according to an article in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society.

Time-release cannabis pill coming
 By Guest Column  Wednesday, February 25, 2015

As scientists and patients discover the pain-relief and healing properties of cannabis, more governments are legalizing the distribution of medical marijuana by prescription. Yet physicians remain uneasy about the way it’s administered (rolled up in smoking paper or dropped into a vaporizer) and the inability to measure exact dosages.





Could an HIV drug beat strep throat, flesh-eating bacteria?
 By American Chemical Society  Wednesday, February 25, 2015

With antibiotic resistance on the rise, scientists are looking for innovative ways to combat bacterial infections. The pathogen that causes conditions from strep throat to flesh-eating disease is among them, but scientists have now found a tool that could help them fight it: a drug approved to treat HIV. Their work, appearing in the journal ACS Chemical Biology,  could someday lead to new treatments.

Israeli maternity hotels pamper new moms
 By Guest Column  Wednesday, February 18, 2015

In the dining room of the Ein Kerem Hotel in Jerusalem, overlooking a magnificent panorama of the Judean Hills, guests approach the bountiful Israeli breakfast laid out elegantly in chafing dishes. The scene seems no different than any other boutique hotel in Israel, except that some of the women at the buffet are wheeling newborns around in bassinets.

New insight into a fragile protein linked to cancer and autism
 By American Chemical Society  Wednesday, February 18, 2015

In recent years, scientists have found a surprising a connection between some people with autism and certain cancer patients: They have mutations in the same gene, one that codes for a protein critical for normal cellular health. Now scientists have reported in the ACS journal Biochemistry that the defects reduce the activity and stability of the protein. Their findings could someday help lead to new treatments for both sets of patients.





Magnesium: Protection from Undertakers
 By Dr. Gifford Jones  Monday, February 16, 2015

In 1979 Dr. David Chipperfield reported a finding in the British Medical Journal, Lancet. He had discovered that patients suffering from angina pain had low blood levels of magnesium. Equally important, he found that by prescribing this mineral, often referred to as “nature’s natural dilator”, the spasm of the coronary artery could be relieved, preventing a fatal heart attack and ultimately, the need to call an undertaker.

Tattoo-like sensor can detect glucose levels without a painful finger prick
 By American Chemical Society  Wednesday, February 11, 2015

Scientists have developed the first ultra-thin, flexible device that sticks to skin like a rub-on tattoo and can detect a person’s glucose levels. The sensor, reported in a proof-of-concept study in the ACS journal Analytical Chemistry, has the potential to eliminate finger-pricking for many people with diabetes.
