Power morcellation: Questions linger for controversial tech
Dr. Amy Reed’s tragic case brought to light the cancer risks posed by power morcellation. Her death hasn’t stopped lingering questions about the technology. Power morcellators were used for 20 years to laparoscopically remove fibroids, benign tumors of the uterus, raising not a single adverse event report with the FDA. That all changed in 2013, when Dr. Amy Reed, an attending physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, underwent a myomectomy using power morcellation at nearby Brigham & Women’s Hospital. Reed’s fibroids were not benign, but instead a malignant form of cancer called uterine...

When Did Humans Discover Fire? The Answer Depends on What You Mean By ‘Discover’
Fire is one of the most important forces on Earth. The use of fire by humans has long been considered as a defining property of intelligence, separating us from other animals. The exact timing of the discovery and use of fire by humans has been a subject of continuing research, yet perhaps two questions have, until now, received little attention: What was fire on Earth like before humans appeared? And what experience of fire could early humans have had? Three main components are needed for fire. First, there must be a fuel to burn. Second, oxygen must be available — after all, combustion is essentially an oxidation p...
