An Israeli study confirms the power of the tongue and the importance of "speaking the truth in love." Even “moderate” rudeness toward medical professionals dramatically affects their ability to provide high quality healthcare and to diagnose diseases, according to a study co-conducted by Tel Aviv University (TAU), Haifa’s Bnei Zion Medical Center and the University of Florida.
The Israeli pharmaceutical giant Teva is joining forces with the American hi-tech company Microchips Biotech to employ biochips for the remote delivery of their medications. The process will allow for the implantation of microchips that can deliver doses that are either pre-set or triggered remotely by a physician. This could be the next big thing in drug delivery systems and Teva, who is the world’s largest producer of generic drugs, wants to be there at the outset.
A half a glass of pomegranate juice and a few dates a day improve cardiac health, a new study at Haifa’s Technion-Israel Institute of Technology reveals. The combination of as little as a half of a glass of pomegranate juice and three dates can ward off atherosclerosis, a condition in which arteries become hard and clogged with plaque. These fatty plaque deposits are dangerous because they can rupture. The blood clot that forms can block the blood supply to the brain, leading to a stroke.
