In conclusion, documentation is important, a critical part of advocacy and the development process at the larger scale. It isn't just words, but rather a vital structural flow of information from one part of the larger community to another, necessary to sustain progress in any complex field. We would all do well to remember this - and to see that building this documentation is an activity in which we can all pitch in to help. Evidence Suggests that, at Least in Earlier Stages, Alzheimer's Disease Blocks Rather than Destroys Memories https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2017/07/evidence-suggests-that-at-least-in-earlier-stages-alzheimers-disease-blocks-rather-than-destroys-memories/ For years now, evidence has accumulated to suggest that Alzheimer's disease blocks memory retrieval rather than destroying memories, at least in the earlier stages prior to the onset of widespread destruction of neurons. Today's research is more of the same. This and related results raise the hope that success in any of the mainstream efforts to treat the causes of this disease should restore much of the cognitive function lost to the condition. Of course it is worth recalling that Alzheimer's patients rarely suffer Alzheimer's alone: it usually arrives alongside one or more other forms of neurodegeneration, each with distinct mechanisms that cause neurons to malfunction or be destroyed. This is in part because Alzheimer's disease is to some degree a lifestyle condition; not as grea...

HolickAbstractVitamin D plays an essential role in regulating calcium and phosphate metabolism and maintaining a healthy mineralized skeleton. Humans obtain vitamin D from sunlight exposure, dietary foods and supplements. There are two forms of vitamin D: vitamin D3 and vitamin D2. Vitamin D3 is synthesized endogenously in the skin and found naturally in oily fish and cod liver oil. Vitamin D2 is synthesized from ergosterol and found in yeast and mushrooms. Once vitamin...

ConclusionsAmong both patient groups, phentermine was more effective in achieving weight loss. Lorcaserin had dyslipidemia improvements only, among surgical patients who achieved significant weight reduction. Anti-obesity medications as part of weight management programs can result in weight loss among non-surgical and surgical patients, or halt weight regain among surgical patients.

THA is reportedly superior to BHA in terms of hip pain, function and reoperation rate. On the other hand THA has a higher rate of dislocation. Total hip replacement with dual mobility cup increases the range of motion and reduces the chances of dislocation. The aim of this study is to compare the functional outcome, rate of dislocation, complications and mortality betwee...
