Health Care Crap

So we have a new president elect (who shall remain nameless). My biggest problem with him is that he claims he will dismantle the Affordable Care Act. This is a serious issue. I do not give a rat's a$$ about political partisanship or how Hillary is a liar or whatever label you want to put on anyone. I only care about health care for those of us sick people.What if health insurance was taken away from all of us chronically sick people? That would be murder essentially for many people who can't afford their health insurance and are seriously ill. And if they don't die, they would be bankrupt.This is a serious problem. I am not sure how health insurance could be taken away from someone once they get it. But if the insurance was cut back so it wasn't really providing the needed coverage, that is different.I see this as a fine line that needs to be watched carefully. I can understand if he wants to reorganize it and change how it is funded, but not how he could change the actual coverage and financial benefits it provides.Hmmmm.... I will be watching.

This study aimed at exploring the role of α-enolase (ENO1) in proliferation, invasion, and cell apoptosis in MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 breast cancer human cells, to provide a theoretical basis for the clinical treatment of breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 cells were randomly divided into five groups: normal control group (Control group), negative control group (negative control virus, NC group), and shENO1 (sh1, sh2, and sh3) group, respectively. The expressions of ENO1 mRNA and protein were measured by Quantitative Real Time-Polymerase Chain Reaction (qRT-PCR) and Western blot, respectively....

The phytosynthesized gold nanoparticles (Cw@AuNPs) were evaluated for their anticancer activity against MCF-7 breast cancer cell model. The formation of AuNPs by Commiphora wightii leaf extract was confirmed by UV–Visible spectra where their surface plasmon resonance was found at 533&thinsp...

In this work, a green and facile strategy was presented to fabricate flexible N,S-reduced graphene oxide film (N,S-rGOF) by respiratory mechanism of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB). The used microbial method allows us to fabricate N,S-rGOF under green and mild c...

However, the potential photochemical activity of such agents on cancerous cells is largely unknown. The nanoclusters (BSA-Au NCs) were synthetized in the presence of BSA (an average hydrodynamic diameter was about 9.4 nm,...

Here we present a case in which a lung tumor, which resembled an atypical carcinoid tumor, was revealed as metastatic breast cancer by next generation sequencing. A 50-year-old female, who had received modified radical mastectomy for breast cancer, presented with a 2.1 cm sized lung mass. The ma...

MundaySummaryTumour histological classification and grade are frequently used to predict the prognosis of canine mammary gland tumours. While these techniques provide some information about tumour behaviour, it is currently difficult to predict which tumours will metastasize. Mast cell density has been shown to predict metastasis in human breast cancer. The present study investigated whether the average mast cell density in 10 high-power (×400) microscopical fields (10 HPFs), eva...
