AMA warns "women" about Spring Break

It’s tempting to treat this story as a “Duh!” moment. But I can’t just dismiss these numbers. And then, there’s the treatment in the press. For example, take a look at “explanation” for the behavior (with a backhanded slap for Concerned Women of America) at the bottom of this op-ed on the American Medical Associations’s … Continue reading

>Effect of cord clamping time on babies’ blood count

>I’ve read concerns that collection of cord blood for banking might cause anemia in newborn babies. When I delivered babies, I would wait (whenever possible) for the cord to stop pulsing. As a believer in natural childbirth (and student of midwives, as well as allopathic physicians), I have always believed that it’s better to make … Continue reading

Effect of cord clamping time on babies' blood count

I’ve read concerns that collection of cord blood for banking might cause anemia in newborn babies. When I delivered babies, I would wait (whenever possible) for the cord to stop pulsing. As a believer in natural childbirth (and student of midwives, as well as allopathic physicians), I have always believed that it’s better to make … Continue reading

Answering a reader “bravely”

An anonymous reader has noted that when I complained about CBS’ touting of destructive stem cell research, the example that I gave involved the use of patient’s own stem cells. These cells would not treat Batten disease, which is a inborn error of metabolism. This type of disease is a genetic defect in the metabolism … Continue reading

To thine own self be true

This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man. This ancient proverb, phrased so beautifully by William Shakespeare in the form of fatherly advice (Polonius, in Hamlet) echos Socrates’ “Know thyself,” and Jiminy Crickets’ “Still, small voice … Continue reading

Why I quit being a “Primary Care Provider”

Over at FreeRepublic, they’re discussing this week’s New York Times guest editorial, “The Doctor Will See You for Seven Minutes,” by Peter Salgo, MD. I highly recommend that your read the op-ed at the NYT in full, and then the thread at FR. 3 years ago, I closed my office and went to work part … Continue reading

Humans are patented

Today’s Science Magazine reports on the implications of patent law on embryonic stem cell research. (Sorry, subscription only, excerpts below.) Somehow, there has not been much notice that the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) was awarded the patent to human embryonic stem cells in 2001. “On 9 August 2001, U.S. President George W. Bush directed … Continue reading

Pets, viruses, and Big Brother

The National Animal Identification System is coming out from under the radar (is that almost a pun? Sorry.) At least for those of us involved in our County Republican Conventions – the resolutions are being submitted include opposition to the law. From the US Department of Agriculture website concerning NAIS: As part of its ongoing … Continue reading
