The Truth Behind the Mask – Nova Scotia Children
Half a truth is often a great lie - Benjamin Franklin I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts – Abraham Lincoln
Why do roundworms grow in the human body
Due to environmental problems and hygiene habits, everyone will inevitably grow roundworms. So what is roundworm? Why are there roundworms in the human body? What are the symptoms of long roundworms? How to avoid infection with roundworms?
The Dissonance Between Medical Research And Human Health
In 7 Things I Learnt About My PhD Degree, I noted a problem with research culture: The publish-or-perish culture is pervadingly strong in PhD life. If one wants to become an academic, they have to be in a rat race to get noticed. Get more articles published, get more readership and citations, and get noticed. Of course, this rat race is heavily rooted in the concept of social Darwinism, and academia is not exempt from it. This concept is also common among Medium writers, Instagram influencers, content creators and business operators. It’s all about getting noticed and turning viral. Seminal research papers, therefore, are just like any other viral Youtube video or Instagram story. They are meant for academic consumption, however. Researchers are evaluated based on the impact factor of their publications and their own personal H-index, in the very same vein that Instagram influencers are evaluated on their engagement metrics and their number of followers. So even though the PhD project is not meant to be 100% of your life, it can damned well take up at least 99.99% of it. Having a consistent theme and direction to the project is also necessary, because sometimes a new research idea can come in — but is it relevant to the thesis at hand? That must be evaluated very carefully — because the idea, if successfully executed and researched, can land a publication in a journal with a high impact factor and boost one’s H-index… but it can lengthen one’s graduation timeframe too, if it isn’t that relevant to the thesis.
What The Deuce Is This Clottery All About?
Our blood is a very unique fluid. It doesn't just contain water. It contains a whole load of other dissolved substances such as proteins, electrolytes and vitamins, as well as other insoluble components such as the red blood cells.
How vitamins effect our skin and body?
VITAMINS • In 1912, a Polish biochemist called Casimir Funk suggested that disease might be caused by a lack of something in the diet and cured by adding it. • He thought this substance was necessary for life (vita) and contained nitrogen (amine) thus "vitamin."
Stability and Balance As A Function Of Our Physical Health
The idea of having a stable baseline is firmly ingrained in our psyches. The baseline provides a sense of stability for us in our day-to-day lives. For example, a salaried employee gets paid a baseline salary of X dollars per month, and from there, they are able to properly plan and budget for their expenses.
The Implications Of An Allergic Reaction On Our Health
People living in temperate countries tend to be highly susceptible to the symptoms of hay fever when it comes round to spring time.
The Science Of Banana Browning And Parkinson's Disease.
The banana is a carbolicious fruit that many of us do like snacking on. It’s a source of quick, “natural” energy. Professional athletes chomp down on them in between games to get their second wind. We love using it in other carby dishes, such as with ice cream (the banana split), pancakes, waffles or with bread. In fact, people who grew up in the UK in the 1980s and the 1990s would also have been exposed to little Eric Wimp, a wimpy looking kid who gains superhuman strength after eating a banana — and becoming Bananaman in the process.
The Robin Hood of diseases
The human body is a fascinating subject. Here's just one example testifying to the statement. Before, we dive into the disease itself, I want to do a little recap of the normal functioning of the body, to put the disease in perspective later.
The Biochemistry Behind Oxidation And Reduction
The electron is a particle that is responsible for transporting electric currents. Between two different chemicals, though, the transfer of electrons from Chemical A to Chemical B can result in a change in their chemical structures.
What is the Importance of Luminex Assay in Early Drug Development?
The importance of the immunoassays for drug discovery and development is increasing day by day. Immunoassays are the sensitive assays used both for the pre-clinical and clinical stages of drug discovery and development. Such assays are employed in the evaluation of the drug response biomarkers, toxicity, and immunotherapy success. However, designing them is challenging as these are quite laborious to run, costly both with respect to time and sample input.
