Whether you are treating a health problem gently and effectively, or preventing problems by stopping the unhealthy habits of worrying, hurrying, and overeating, Chinese medicine is the best way forward. With the current spread of Chinese influence around the world, I believe that Chinese medicine will come to dominate non-emergency health care this decade.
Scientists from the University of Washington have developed a vaccine that targets the SARS-CoV-2 virus, can be given in one dose via the nose and is effective in preventing infection in mice susceptible to the novel coronavirus. The investigators next plan to test the vaccine in nonhuman primates and humans to see if it is safe and effective in preventing COVID-19 infection. Read the details here.
Reluctance to taking the vaccine will have a lot to do with widespread distrust of Medical Doctors and vaccines, as pointed out in this study.
Good comes from bad and bad comes from good.
Men might want to think twice before reaching for their phones at night. A new study from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine found correlations between electronic media use at night and poor sperm quality.
A new study from scientists at King's College London and Cambridge University, UK, shows that autism can now be traced back to prenatal development, even though the disorder is not diagnosed until at least 18 months of age. The atypical development starts at the very earliest stages of brain organization, at the level of individual brain cells.

New research from the University of East Anglia shows that vitamin C could help over-50s retain muscle mass in later life. The study shows that older people who eat plenty of vitamin C, commonly found in uncooked foods such as citrus fruits, berries, and vegetables, have the best skeletal muscle mass.
The researchers did not correlate this study with the other factors that are critical for muscle mass retention.
After three decades of hopes tempered by setbacks, gene therapy -- the process of treating a disease by modifying a person's DNA -- is no longer reserved for the future, but is part of the present-day clinical treatment toolkit. An article from two years ago provides an in-depth review of the key developments that have led to several successful gene therapy treatments for patients with serious medical conditions.
Genetic engineering will one day present each of us with the following question: "Given the absence of pain and other health problems, how long do you want to live?"
