BRCA testing: Are the medical options sensible?

Angelina Jolie’s medical choice was a brave one, and the decision to share it even braver. However it looks as though, if my sources are accurate, it appears there is little benefit, actually no benefit, to prophylactic mastectomy (prophylactic meaning to prevent ever developing cancer) over screening in terms of mortality. Was Jolie’s choice influenced by culture more than by the science? And will her decision spark of a conversation that moves us in a new direction?

What is MRSA? Another Reason We Need Good Bacteria

Germs have been strategizing against the effects of antimicrobial agents from a variety of sources (including other microbes) for billions of years. So as far as bacteria are concerned, manmade antibiotics represent just another challenge, the most recent of a long series of biological puzzles to solve. Instead of killing good and bad bacteria (like MRSA) indiscriminately with antimicrobials, it makes more sense to support your immune system and the good bacteria who will fight off the bad guys for you!

I kept hearing that nature was flawed and human beings were an intelligent but physically weak species. by the time I graduated, I’d been indoctrinated with the idea that disease and sickness are inevitable side effects of living, nothing could prevent them, and technological fixes were our only options.
