Thanks to nanotechnology, Celiac sufferers (like me) may have some genuine relief on the horizon - a new therapy is flying through phase 2 trials that encapsulates the gluten you ingest and keeps your immune system from freaking out over it after only 2 weekly shots. Here's the writeup from the university doing the research and trials. If it makes it to market, this is huge. If it also lets me transform into a dump truck, BONUS!
Have you ever noticed a strange little worm-like speck drifting aimlessly about in your field of vision? These annoying little squiggly lines, or “cobwebs,” are called floaters and are experienced by around 70% of people. So what are they?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, affecting 2.3 million people in our world. MS is as an immune-mediated disease, where the immune system attacks the protective myelin sheath which covers nerve fibers, causing communication issues between your brain and the rest of your body.
Eventually, the disease can cause nerves to deteriorate or become permanently damaged. Currently there is no cure for MS, however Dr. Su Metcalfe and her company, LIFNano are hoping to change that.

Yep, figures don't lie but liars can figure. Part 23,893.
I'm not going to make this as political as this article does but honestly folks, when have you seen overall prices go down? Ever? A few headlines while backroon retail prices for everything else go up to make up for it.

You wouldn't think the noble butterfly stitch could be improved much, but you'd be wrong - introducing the Zipstitch, based upon the TopClosure system developed by Dr. Moris Topaz of the Hillel Yaffe Medical Center.

In 2013, the New England Journal of Medicine published a landmark study that found that people put on a Mediterranean diet had a 30% lower chance of heart attack, stroke, or death from cardiovascular disease than people on a low-fat diet. It received massive media and public attention when released, and since has been cited by 3,268 other scientific papers. The study had tremendous impact on the field of nutrition and health science.

An immune system-boosting cancer treatment that recently demonstrated astounding results in mice is now advancing to human testing.
Published less than two months ago in Science Translational Medicine, a study by Stanford University researchers showed that injection of two immune-stimulating agents directly into a tumor caused T-cells to recognize and destroy cancerous cells in both the local tumor as well as a distantly located secondary mass.

Love may not be a drug, but it can certainly feel like one.
Being in love floods our brains with chemicals that can induce feelings of everything from pleasure to intense focus and attachment.
But being in love isn't all in our heads: these chemicals can cause reactions throughout the body, which might help explain that tingly-all-over feeling we get when we see a loved one, or the "high" we feel after we've met that special someone.
Take a look at how love affects our brains and bodies.

Salty, crispy and addictive, McDonald’s french fries might have another attribute — the ability to put hair on your head.
According to a new study out of Japan, a chemical used in the cooking of the fast food giant’s fries could be the key to curing baldness.
Stem cell researchers at Yokohama National University succeeded in regrowing hair on mice by using dimethylpolysiloxane to mass-produce “hair follicle germs,” or HFG. Dimethylpolysiloxane is the silicone that is added to McDonald’s fries to prevent the oil from frothing.

The strangest thing about warts is that they tend to go away. Fully grown, nothing in the body has so much the look of toughness and permanence as a wart, and yet, inexplicably and often very abruptly, they come to the end of their lives and vanish without a trace. And they can be made to go away by something that can only be called thinking, or something like thinking. This is a special property of warts which is absolutely astonishing, more of a surprise than cloning or recombinant DNA or endorphin or acupuncture or anything else currently attracting attention in the press. It is one of the great mystifications of science: warts can be ordered off the skin by hypnotic suggestion.

“Oh, you’re just blowing smoke up my ass,” is something you might hear someone say when they think you’re just telling them what they want to hear. But in 18th-century England, blowing smoke up one’s ass was an actual medical procedure, and no, we aren’t kidding.

Meet Dr. Kevin Menes, the attending physician in charge of a Vegas emergency room the night that Stephen Paddock opened fire on concertgoers.
Dr. Menes, Dr. Patrick Flores, Dr. James Walker, Dr. Michael Tang and trauma surgeon Dr. Allan MacIntyre handled the endless flow of bodies needing medical attention that night. This is how they did it.
A Kenyan man with a 3-foot penis and 11 pound testicles is finally getting the chance to live a normal life — now that his massive package has been surgically reduced, reports said.
