Authors: Sohliya L, Mathew J, Ishitha G, Panwar J, Jacob KM Abstract Rheumatoid Arthritis can present with consistent pain over peripheral joints. The manner of presentation of a subcutaneous tumour such as Myopericytoma may be very similar to that of an inflamed joint leading to the high frequency of it being overlooked and inadequately treated. Knowing the radiological and pathological differences will direct us in the right road to timely and adequate treatment. PMID: 30341880 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, eutectic mixtures, as binary pharmaceutical compositions of CEL with adipic acid (ADI) and saccharin (SAC), were identified through a phase diagram and Tammann’s triangle intended to improve the wettability and dissolution rate of poorly water-soluble CEL. The contact angles at 0s in the liquid-solid interface were approximately θs (theta) 79.7° ± 0.50° and 86.65° ± 0.45° for CEL-ADI and CEL-SAC, respectively, which were much lower than the value obtained for CEL (92.05° ± 0.75° θ). Moreover, a comparison of the disk intrinsic dissolution rate an...

There’s an argument that has been batted around in online conversations, one that I thought that, because it was so patently absurd and so readily disproven, it would simply disappear into the blogosphere . . . but it hasn’t. So let’s talk about this idea. The idea goes like this: Because glyphosate is liberally applied to wheat, including its application as a desiccant and for weed control pre-planting, during maturation, and pre-harvest, the high concentrations of this herbicide in wheat products are the cause for all the problems that emerge with wheat consumption. It means that, minus glyphosate, whea...

In the seven years since the original Wheat Belly book hit bookstores and turned the nutritional world topsy-turvy and millions of people have engaged in a grain-free lifestyle, many unique lessons have been learned.

Among the new lessons learned along the way: Plantar fasciitis—I did not expect to have so many people report that this painful conditi...
