  1. "Colon Cancer Rates Rise in Young Adults: Earlier Screening Advised" on health.clevelandclinic.org I WANT EVERYONE ON THIS WEBSITE OVER THE AGE OF 40 TO GO GET A COLONOSCOPY. There are new guidelines from the American Cancer Society: The age is now 40, not 50. Comparing people born in 1950, and people born in 1990: * The risk of getting colon cancer before age 50 is twice as high * The risk of getting rectal cancer before age 50 is four-times as high LISTEN UP! I took a friend to get a colonoscopy a few weeks ago. Early 50s, healthy, non-smoker, went ten year
  2. I want to see proof that opioids *cause* pain. Just like coffee (and cigarettes, and alcohol, and many other drugs), that first-ever cup perks you right up. Then a month later, you find yourself needing to drink two cups, then three, and so on. After drinking coffee for years, try *not* drinking coffee for a day, and see how you're feeling that afternoon. It takes more, and more, and more just to wake yourself up. But that doesn't mean coffee *induces* fatigue; it means your body becomes dependent on caffeine, and needs more of it to perform the same task. If it were true that
  3. It turns out others who were ranked #1 at year end are not in this photo: Pete Sampras is probably the one with the longest period of year end #1 ranking who was not at that photo shoot. Regardless, its a neat picture and between Nastase and recent and current #1's it covers a lot of decades, not just years. That is a lot of tennis history. Boy I disagree on the "luck" description concerning Arthur Ashe. He reportedly contracted HIV from a blood transfusion in the 1980's due to a heart attack. I knew someone over a long period, who died from Aids around the same time period as Ashe.
  4. Leonard Thompson received the first-ever insulin injection for diabetes mellitus, 97-years ago today.
  5. It's funny how one thing leads to another. Because of Jim's post, I'm watching "Rain Man" for the second time in my life. (By the way, this film is a whole lot deeper than I thought it was.) All because I was thinking about Daniel Tammet, and there's one thing I don't understand: In his Wikipedia entry, it says that Tammet: --- In his mind, Tammet says, each positive integer up to 10,000 has its own unique shape, colour, texture and feel. He has described his visual image of 289 as particularly ugly, 333 as particularly attractive, and pi, though not an integer, a
  6. We all know that yawning is contagious, i.e., when you see someone yawn, it creates your own urge to yawn. Even reading this sentence may force you to fight off a yawn, but it's a losing battle. So get on with it ... --- For those who are bladder shy, the sound of running water can "prime the pump," so to speak. Are these two somewhat primal brain responses identical? Similar? Related?
  7. Narcissistic Personality Disorder was first described by Robert Waelder in 1925, although the current name (which is quite apt) came into use in 1968. This painting of Narcissus by Caravagio was painted around 1598:
  8. Change that from "a year" to "a couple of months." Unless you're so desperate that you can't wait until August, get the test procedure now, and if it helps you, try and gut things out until later in the summer to get the full implant - I've now heard from two independent sources (who don't know each other) that the St. Jude's DRG Stimulator implant will be FDA-approved for MRIs this summer (their Spinal Cord Stimulator already is). Maybe I'm not supposed to share this information, but quite frankly, I couldn't care less - people are in desperate need of relief. This is an infor
  9. One thing I noticed about Steve Kerr was how *not* in pain he was last night. Last month, he had a "spinal cord leak" from a surgery he had two years ago - this is very, very unusual to happen so long into the future, and the fact that his "blood patch" didn't work instantly is also unusual (and troubling). But, apparently, something worked: I can assure people that last night, he did not have a "spinal headache," and was in little or no pain. A "spinal cord leak" can happen anytime you have a needle invading your dura - when it happens, the puncture - for whatever reason - doesn't c
  10. I found this to be astonishing history of science on a topic that is both current and recent history: "New Study Shows HIV Epidemic Starting Spreading in New York in 1970" on nbcnews.com A very gruesome and painful disease and some remarkable science. Just interesting reading.
