THIS IS A ONE TIME POST. PLEASE REFER TO MY NORMAL BLOG AT CEREBRATIONS.BIZ Janine Ripper has way too much time on her hands now. So, she decided that the 6 degrees of separation could lead to a discussion of 7 … Continue reading

No, I have not run out of things to say or discuss. I really have tons that I would like to post at once. But, over the past few days, I have been working to move my site- to our … Continue reading
It turns out that the relationship between blood pressure management and mortality is very different for ESRD patients than for the population as a whole. First, systolic blood pressure has a more significant correlation (than diastole) with mortality. And, the relationship is U-shaped (higher mortality at low systolic pressures for older patients and higher mortality for high systole for younger patients; 140/90 seems acceptable for all age cohorts).

Not only does walking, as an exercise, provide resistance against Parkinson’s disease, autoimmune disorders, and cancers, this new study shows it can preclude the loss of gray matter- and, more importantly, the loss of cognitive impairment. Continue reading
Dr. Simon Maybaum is leading a trial to determine if hypobaric conditions (simulated high altitude) can improve the lives of cardiac patients. It is hoped that this will mimic the same results obtained by athletes who train using these conditions- improved red cell mass, better oxygenation, and larger tidal volumes. Continue reading
It has long been thought that the loss of one sense leads to augmentation by another. Using deaf cats, it was shown that the auditory complex is used to provide extended peripheral vision for the deaf. Continue reading
I learned how to write from my Great-Grandfather (of blessed memory)- and have, on occasion, forgotten what that skill provides. New research demonstrates its ability to help us learn- and keep our brains fresh- at any age. Continue reading
