If you have been reading the papers or various medical journals lately a few studies jump out from the page.
How about this one from the ‘American Academy of Sleep Medicine’,
“Biological clock out of sync in patients being treated for breast cancer with chemotherapy”?
The study goes on to say that psychological factors such as stress, pain, depression, napping and more could be contributing factors. DUH!
In the Journal of Nature, “Gene therapy fixes colorblind monkeys”.
The study tells us that 7% of male Americans have red-green colorblindness, which is the inability to see a difference between shades of the two colors.
I am riveted to read more on how this research can help all humans. Let me say the researchers note that “Colorblindness is not life threatening”. They also acknowledge that gene therapy has risks of actually causing cancer and other life threatening complications. So…….?
In the Archives of Internal Medicine, “Defibrillators do little for women”.
A recent study showed that the devices do little for women in preventing them from dying of heart failure. This is one more study showing gender difference in regards to heart disease. Historically large studies have been on men with the results applied to women. So now once and for all can we say ‘What is good for the goose is good for the gander’ is a stupid saying?
