A fat man is a joke; and a fat woman is two jokes--one on herself and the other on her husband. Half the
comedy in the world is predicated on the paunch. At that, the human race is divided into but two classes--fat
people who are trying to get thin and thin people who are trying to get fat.
Fat, the doctors say, is fatal. I move to amend by striking out the last two letters of the indictment. Fat is fat. It
isn't any more fatal to be reasonably fat than to be reasonably thin, but it's a darned sight more uncomfortable.
Is this use of television vital for the community information needs? In R8069, the survey
included comment on various sources or means of finding information – about important
subjects. Table 6 demonstrates that TV is seen as a source of information although lower
ranking in importance than face to face communication, and radio. This is not surprising
given the relative ratios of television to radio. What is perhaps slightly surprising is that
television as a source is used by as many people (if not slightly more) than newspapers.
This may reflect literacy rates....
Non-visible prostate cancer on TRUS has been increased because of the advances in PSA
screening. (Ohori, et al.2003) However, there are still occurrences of hypoechoic lesions
suspicious for cancer. To obtain an appropriate tissue sample from suspicious lesions, it is
better to make the needle tip facing the rectum (Figure 1, 2). Otherwise, the needle tip slips
away from the prostate so that it may result in inappropriate samples and missing lesions.
This is particularly true when the biplane ultrasound probe is used which is close to parallel
to the rectum.
Bacillus cereusis an opportunistic pathogenic bacterium closely related to
Bacillus anthracis, the causative agent of anthrax in mammals. A significant
portion of theB. cereuschromosomal genes are common to B. anthracis,
including genes which in B. anthraciscode for putative virulence and sur-face proteins.
Products of nanotechnology are expected to revolutionize
modern medicine, as evidenced by recent scientific advances
and global initiatives to support nanotechnology and nanomedicine
research. The field of drug delivery is a direct beneficiary
of these advancements. Due to their versatility in
targeting tissues, accessing deep molecular targets, and controlling
drug release, nanoparticles are helping address challenges
to face the delivery of modern, as well as conventional
(BQ) Part 1 book "Ten Cate's oral histology - Development, structure and function" presents the following contents: Structure of the oral tissues, general embryology; embryology of the head, face and oral cavity; cytoskeleton, cell junctions, fibroblasts, and extracellular matrix; development of the tooth and its supporting tissues; bone; enamel - composition, formation, and structure.
As the world population ages, health care costs are expected to escalate as a
result of the increase in age-related, degenerative diseases. Regenerating the
failing cells and organs associated with these diseases would preserve quality of
life and help curtail the increase in health care costs. Medical scientists today are
faced with the challenge of developing new and innovative regenerative therapies
to meet this need. A major focus of this research is to identify sources of cells
and tissues that can be used in regenerative therapies....
In tuberous sclerosis, the earliest cutaneous sign is an ash leaf spot. These lesions are often present at birth and are usually multiple; however, detection may require Wood's lamp examination, especially in fair-skinned individuals. The pigment within them is reduced but not absent. The average size is 1–3 cm, and the common shapes are polygonal and lance-ovate.
These cancers commonly appear on sun-exposed areas of the body such as the face, ears,
neck, lips, and backs of the hands. They can also develop in scars or chronic skin sores
elsewhere. They sometimes start in actinic keratoses (described below). Less often, they form
in the skin of the genital area.
Squamous cell carcinomas tend to grow and spread more than basal cell cancers. They are
more likely to invade fatty tissues just beneath the skin, and are more likely to spread to
lymph nodes and/or distant parts of the body, although this is still uncommon.
