This is promising! If this works this could make a huge difference in the lives of individuals who have suffered heart attacks!

I take forskolin to maintain a healthy heart. Be careful though, it has anti depressive, fat burning and energizing side effects that could put your doctor out of business!
You know why single men live longer than married men? Because they want to.

Why Stem Cells Aren't Being Tested in the US
Between big pharmaceutical corporations and our government, very little is being done to advance stem cell research. Stem cells have been shown over and over again to have incredible potential for healing people with all sorts of different problems, but nothing is available to the public yet thanks to our sluggish government and the greedy companies.

The World's First Penis Transplant :banana:
This is a MASSIVE medical breakthrough! How long will it be before guys can trade in the duds they were born with for ones that are bigger and better? BTW, apparently motorcyclists are the most likely to need a spare penis due to the way motorcycle accidents tend to work!

Why Are Stem Cells So Important?
There has been lots of speculation about how stem cells might be used in the future, but so far not a lot has been delivered.

Scientists unveil "breakthrough" exercise pill
Actually this isn't something that will be available for several years, if it even makes it through FDA trials, but it looks interesting. It would be especially useful for maintaining muscle tone in medical patients who are bedridden for long periods of time. I wonder if it would make a good exercise supplement for healthy people...

This Cancer Treatment Works Like A Flu Shot
The shot gets the body to fight the cancer, but the cancer is never completely eliminated, just kept under control.

Frankenscience? Human organs grown in animals to be reportedly approved in UK
Exciting new technological breakthrough treated negatively by RT and viewers have treated the video negatively with more thumbs downs than thumbs ups so far. The last part of the video includes some pseudo-intellectual bullshit from an obstructionist (aka, ethicist).

Big honor for groundbreaking cancer researcher Tony Hunter

Hunter has received many awards over the years stemming from his groundbreaking discovery in 1979 of a process that contributes to normal cells turning malignant. This process, called tyrosine phosphorylation of protein, laid the foundation for a new class of cancer drugs called tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Tyrosine kinases are a class of enzymes that perform tyrosine phosphorylation; at last count 90 genes are known to code for these enzymes.

Destroying Cancer Using Your Own Genetically Modified Cells
I'm a big fan of medical science. I'm just hoping that when I get sick with some disease or condition that at one time was incurable, that they've developed an effective therapy for it!
