Doesn't make sense to discourage docs to consider a patient's weight, considering it's very often a major contributor to one's health issues.

Posted in: What he thought was pneumonia turned out to be heart failure – at age 30 See in context

I don’t really understand the point of this article.

Maybe to try to convince people that heart problems in the young has always been common. This way they are less likely to notice and question their recent rise. Why else publish this story of heart failure from 5 years ago?

Just because the US labels Hamas as terrorists does not make it so. The Israeli regime is by far more of a terrorist organization than Hamas. All countries should cut all ties to the Israel.

Posted in: Social media sites have become a phenomenal means of communication for hate groups, conspiracy theorists and deranged individuals and groups. Do you agree with this statement? See in context

Some "conspiracy theories," especially with regard to COVID, actually turned out to be facts.

Yes, and people died because these facts were censored.

Posted in: Hamas and Israel exchange more hostages for prisoners on fifth day of temporary cease-fire See in context

More than 13,300 Palestinians have been killed since the war began, roughly two-thirds of them women and minors, 

Very outdated number. Latest numbers I've seen are: 20,360 Palestinians murdered, 8,241 of them children.

And why choose as the main photo one showing these murderers in a sympathetic way?

Netanyahu is not interested in a ceasefire or peace.

Correct, he wants all of Gaza because he wants to exploit its valuable natural resources (oil and natural gas).

it is the Palestinians that no one wants to take in.

Why should the Palestinians leave Palestine? And why is the world letting the Israelis murder them and pushing them out?

BTW, millions of Palestinians have already been taken in by its neighbors many years ago.

You can't even get a single country to take in these people.

What? I'm sure all the zionists living in the occupied territories would be welcomed by the countries they came from, or welcomed in the rest of Israel.

Actually, a few days ago, the number of murdered Palestinian children was 5,850. And that probably does not include the dead children who are still buried under the rubble of the flattened north half of Gaza.

What is needed is a "coalition of the willing" to protect the Palestinians and put Israel in its place, behind the June 1967 borders.

Posted in: Why both too strong and too weak an immune response can lead to illness See in context

tinkering with the immune system through the use of supplements is not a good idea unless you have a clinical deficiency in certain vital nutrients.

Ah yes , vitD. Studies have shown that most people have low vitD levels, especially in those populations that were more affected by covid. These levels were not so low as to cause rickets, but certainly low enough to negatively impact the immune system.

So in addition to "balanced diet", I would add sun exposure and vitD supplements (especially in winter).

"More isn’t necessarily better" was clearly demonstrated with the covid19 shots; the more boosters one got the higher the chance of infection and hospitalization.

And Nutty Yahoo is using this unprovoked war as a leverage and excuse to obtain the absolute political control over Israel that he wants.

Unprovoked? Really? Hamas was not provoked into attacking Israel? Really?

Hamas are the only ones that did anything to try to help the Palestinians. Billionaire Abbas (Fatah) is extremely corrupt and totally useless.

Calling the Palestinians held by Israel "prisoners" gives the impression they committed a crime and deserved to be there. Most of the thousands held by Israel committed no crime; they are just as guilty as the "hostages" held by Hamas.

Well, what are the governments doing all over the world ? Aren't they supposed to be the one protecting their citizens ? Not just from harm of war, but harm from companies as well.

They should, but clearly aren't.

Posted in: Novo to launch anti-obesity drug Wegovy in Asia with February Japan roll-out See in context

It's true that all drugs have "possible side effects" which are listed by the pharma companies.

Yes, but some drugs (e.g. Wegovy) have a higher incidence of side effects, more serious side effects, lower benefit, ...

Yes, one should always consider the hazard (+/-cost) benefit ratio.

Italy is the first EU country to produce in-vito meat.

Is that a joke (Vito) or a spelling error (in vitro, ie lab meat)?

I read that Italy has banned lab meat.

That is Israel's strategy going back to the war of 1967, displace Palestinians and make neighboring countries put them up in refugee camps, see Lebanon, Syria and Egypt
