Letter from the President
 

Gratitude All Year!

     I love the tradition of Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends. This year I have 24 coming to spend the day with us and I can’t wait! My niece, Linda Lorrier and her daughters do the cooking so it is all pleasure for me. I have so much for which to be grateful and I hope you do as well!

     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:

  •      Dr Sam Gandy , Director of the Center for Cognitive Health at Mt Sinai School of Medicine is launching a Phase 1 trial to test a new drug that might reverse the damage that Alzheimer’s has already done for the 5 million people who have Alzheimer’s. The drug is so new it has no name, just a number: BCI-838. To check on when the trial will begin enrollment, go to www.clinicaltrials.gov
  •      Hugh Green, President and CEO of Baptist Health in Jacksonville, Fl recently told us about their new efforts to prevent the spread of infection: Vestex uniforms. These new bacterial resistant uniforms and gowns cut down dramatically on the spread of infections like MRSA, e-coli and c.diff.
  •      Dr Halle Moore is offering young women who have breast cancer an option that preserves their fertility. The injectable drug goserelin is a synthetic hormone that puts a women’s ovaries in a “resting” state and in the study of 200 patients the results were very good. Not only were the patients more likely to become pregnant, they actually had better cancer outcomes!

     Check out our special reports this week. One is about creative ways to cope with cancer recovery. Dr Jacob Gardinier Scott, Radiation Oncologist of Moffitt Cancer Center says people who find something important to put their attention on do much better. Then Dr Dong H Kim at Memorial Hermann Mischer Neuroscience Institute at the Texas Medical Center and professor of neurosurgery at UT Health Medical School goes in depth about pineal cycsts and the debilitating pain patients feel.

     In case you missed them, you may want to check our past reports, Premium Content in Archives Premium Content in ArchivesCan Cocoa Reverse Age-Related Memory Decline? Premium Content in ArchivesNew Hope for Potential Prostate Cancer Patients. Premium Content in the Archives may be purchased for as little as $9 for 24-hour, unlimited access. If you would like to access Premium Content for the first time click here.

     And we finish up our news this week with a “Dose of Dark: Four Super Veggies!” If these aren’t on your table this Thursday, there is still time to add them: kale, spinach, collards and swiss chard.

     Gobble, gobble

And there's more where that came from...

“Sometimes one feels freer speaking to a stranger than to people one knows. Why is that? ... Probably because a stranger sees us the way we are, not as he wishes to think we are. ”
-- Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind
