Take your vitamins! Say your prayers!

US regulators have approved the first pill that can be digitally tracked through the body.

The Abilify MyCite aripiprazole tablets - for treating schizophrenia and manic episodes - have an ingestible sensor embedded inside them that records that the medication has been taken.

A patch worn by the patient transmits this information to their smartphone.

The information can also be sent to the prescribing doctor, if the patient consents to this.

Experts hope it could improve medication compliance, although the company that makes the tablets says this has not been proved for their product.

The prescribing notes also stress that Abilify MyCite should not be used to track drug ingestion in "real-time" or during an emergency, because detection may be delayed or may not occur.
To keep your mind right. It's for your own good.

Who needs doctors when you have celebrity chefs who are totally unqualified to give medical advice?

@AllergyKidsDoc

Dr. Dave Stukus Retweeted Cleveland Clinic

Here we go again...

OK - please, do tell: Exactly how much spinach must one person eat in order to fight off infection? Is that daily? Year round? Same for men & women? Vary by age, height, weight, exercise, medication use, etc etc etc?

STOP with the 'immune boosting' garbage!

The omega-3 industry is in a twist. Again. Last week, Cochrane, an organisation that compiles and evaluates medical research for the general public, released a meta-analysis – a study of studies – to determine whether or not omega-3 pills, one of the world’s most popular dietary supplements, reduced the risk of coronary heart disease. After comparing 79 trials involving 112,059 people, the researchers could find “little or no difference to risk of cardiovascular events, coronary heart deaths, coronary heart disease events, stroke or heart irregularities”.
Is the epidemiological evidence for fish-eating better than simply taking a fish oil pill? Again, we are stuck with the problem of correlation versus causation. It is very difficult to feed someone a fish in such a manner that they don’t know they are eating a fish. Hence an RCT of seafood-eating hasn’t really ever been done. Most of the studies around seafood are association studies. And, while one such study associated eating fish twice a week with a possible reduction in mortality of 55,000 lives a year, we don’t know what a fish-eater does with the rest of their life beyond eating fish.

But what we do know is this: the omega-3 industry and the reduction industry that bred it removes fish from the water in a way that doesn’t put protein on our plates – it just puts pills in our cupboards. Is this the way we want to continue to do business with the planet?
