The World Cup and Your Heart


I Love the World Cup but be careful out there....  according to a NEJM article:


Cardiovascular Events during World Cup Soccer


Conclusion:  "Viewing a stressful soccer match more than doubles the risk of an acute cardiovascular event. In view of this excess risk, particularly in men with known coronary heart disease, preventive measures are urgently needed."




Thank you NEJM, but I really didn't need a study to know this!!!!  But now we have proof that the World Cup is a "Heart Breaker"!    - Dr. B


Thanks to Dr. Joseph Bergerson

Keeping Abreast of the Latest Research

A new study presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology in San Francisco found that applying physical pressure to malignant cancer cells in the breast may help to inhibit their growth.

Yes, you read that correctly. Squeezing breasts could help stop cancer from growing.

"Researchers at the UC Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have put the squeeze — literally — on malignant mammary cells to guide them back into a normal growth pattern."     Read More

Medical Procedure: Replacing Body Parts

Interesting new medical way to replace organs presented on the PBS television show "NOVA science NOW."

 Watch 13 minute video here.

"Scientists are learning how to grow custom-made body parts so they can be ready when you—and your vital organs—start falling apart. At the University of Minnesota, Doris Taylor and her colleagues strip organs of their cells, reseed the organ "skeletons" with living cells, and watch as the organs start working right in front of their eyes."

 Food Inc.

“You’ll never look at dinner the same way again”

A look behind the veil!  One of the most important things in our life is food! Yet we never stop to think “where does it all come from?”.  Sometimes I think it might be better not to know, but this is far too important. Yes! There are poo burgers and Ecoli O157:H7, but that’s only the beginning of what this documentary brings to light about how our food makes it to the plate.  It’s got everything I say in class and more.  Learn the truth about the food that you are going to eat today!  Fortunately, this video offers some positive solutions and things that you can do to protect yourself and change this world for the better.  Remember, as doctors we must be the guardians of the public!

A must see!  I highly recommend it!
