Medical Musings

I learned a few things last week:

(1) Contrary to popular belief, a study has found that stents do not in fact provide extra benefit to prevent heart attacks (published literature given within the article.)

(2) As the DSM V approaches release, some interesting commentary on those involved in the field:

(3) Anyone else notice the anti-smoking ads? Finally something that might resonate with more people to just QUIT:

(4)  Let's ease brain fatigue! and

(5) Ok, sorry but who actually thought doing this with your teeth was a good idea?!?!


  1. #5 - !??!?!?!?! That is KILLING me hahahahahahhahahaha

  2. Search the TED talks for Mike Rowe - he actually did this for "Dirty Jobs" and discusses why the teeth, and not other methods. You may be surprised. I was, plus Mike's overall TED talk is very good.
