An additional sad point about MS is that it generally afflicts quite young people – predominantly those between 30-40 years old.
The remissions that characterise MS occur when the body just appears to overcome the symptoms temporarily and the sufferer will have a good spell – which could last weeks or months. Following this, the MS kicks in again.
The existing treatment for MS is very limited.
Over the last 20 to 30 years we have seen some amazing results of using stem cells to help the body heal breakdown and trauma. So it was only a matter of time before it was used to help stimulate nerve cell growth.

Post image for How to Avoid Getting VERY Sick from Chicken

It’s possible to avoid getting very sick from chicken by following a few simple measures.
The bug which will easily make you sick is called campylobacter. It is found in animal faeces. Although it can affect red meat and unclean water, four of out five cases of campylobacter originate in poultry – mainly chicken. The problem is very real: and the chances of you becoming one of the 280,000 victims a year, and suffering stomach pains and diarrhoea for 2-3 days is high.
In fact, campylobacter infection is the commonest cause of food poisoning, by far exceeding cases of e coli or salmonella.

So, sure – you need to watch out for exaggeration, even among those with expertise. (And with egg on their faces 10 years later.)
BUT it will be curable one day.
And in the meantime we are making some incredible headway.
Imagine what it was like back in the early twentieth century when we had:
– Tuberculosis
– Syphilis
– Gonorrhoea
– Blood poisoning
… all of which imposed a death sentence on the sorry victim.
No-one could have foreseen the discovery of penicillin by Alexander Fleming in 1928.

Health Dangers of Obesity

There is a close correlation between being overweight/obese and having high blood pressure.
A major problem with having high blood pressure is it can lead to a stroke. This can happen even to a younger person. For example, the incidence of stroke in men between 40 and 54 increased by 50% between 2000 and 2014.

Apple Watch

The technology behind all this is what Apple calls the ResearchKit, which facilitates the exchange of health information from the body into the watch and beyond. If this sounds a bit scary, focus on the positive side. What if, in the future, a diabetic had an audible warning of when their blood sugar was getting too high or too low? Or someone with a heart problem got a warning when their blood pressure got above a certain level?
