Abstract Genetic analyses of patients with transposition of the great arteries have identified rare copy number variations, suggesting that they may be significant to the aetiology of the disease. This paper reports the identification of a 16p11.2 microduplication, a variation that has yet to be reported in association with transposition of the great arteries. The 16p11.2 microduplication is associated with autism spectrum disorder and developmental delay, but with highly variable phenotypic effects. Autism and attention deficit disorders are observed more frequently in children with congenital heart disease than ...

Up until the first half of the twentieth century, large-scale health disasters were mostly due to natural causes (earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, etc.) or infections (e.g., smallpox, influenza epidemics, cholera). But something peculiar happened as we entered the second half of the century: Health disasters due to natural causes became dwarfed by large-scale health disasters that are man-made. Here’s a list of the Six Worst U.S. Health Disasters of the Last 50 Years, mostly man-made phenomena that have exacted huge tolls: widespread disease, premature death, poorly managed (though nonetheless highly profitable fo...

BY UWE REINHARDT In tribute to Uwe we are re-running this instant classic from THCB’s archives. Originally published on Jan 31, 2017. Everyone knows (or should know) that forcing a commercial health insurer to write for an individual a health insurance policy at a premium that falls short of the insurer’s best ex ante estimate of the cost of health care that individual will require is to force that insurer into what economists might call an unnatural act. Remarkably, countries that rely on competing private health insurers to operate their universal, national health insurance systems all do just that. They a...

There’s no doubt antibiotics have saved a lot of lives. But because they’ve been overprescribed for so many years we’ve ended up with a slew of health problems. For one thing, overuse of antibiotics wreaks havoc on your microbiome… That’s your body’s ecosystem. Your microbiome has 100 trillion or so bacteria, viruses and fungi. It affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. But other good bacteria are called “probiotics.” They boost your immune system. They help you digest your food and turn it into vitamins. But in...

Conclusion The widely accepted use of acetaminophen pain relievers, such as Tylenol, has been shown in scientific studies to deplete levels of our bodies’ master antioxidant, glutathione. Parents should question the popular notion that dozens of vaccine doses in infancy are safe, and they should certainly research the damaging effects acetaminophen can have on the developing brain.
