Stem cells

Yesterday I had a doctor's appointment (a novel event) and had to wait a few minutes to see the doctor so I grabbed a copy of A Woman's Health magazine (since I left my book on the check in desk and didn't realize it for a while).

I found the magazine relatively interesting and a couple article caught my eye - especially one on the uses of stem cells. I didn't realize you could use stem cells for much else than a few kinds of cancer but evidently you can. This is interesting. Maybe they will be able to cure all kinds of ailments with stem cells in the future. And they don't have to use the controversial embryonic cells, they can get them from adults.

Just a little interesting advance on something that has been known for a while.

That's all I have to say today. Other than the doctor was the surgeon who had sent me to PT and for injections on my left knee this spring. I told him my right knee, that he operated on 10 years ago has not been feeling that great. He wants to see me in three months to see how it is and maybe we'll talk x-rays, injections, etc then. Oh, joy.

A new study shows that resveratrol supplementation ‘“has the ability to prevent the first step that occurs when estrogen starts the process that leads to cancer”’ (WebMD). I take the Resvantage resveratrol supplement as it is the best quality one and the one that most physicians recommend.

Access the links below for the scientific facts about how resveratrol can help prevent breast cancer.
