What viagra did to beagles....

An interesting essay on why animal testing is insufficient-

"There are plenty of examples of substances that have appeared to be safe in animals and turned out to be toxic in humans, and vice versa. It wasn't long ago that six men in England who volunteered for an experiment to test a drug designed to treat diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, leukemia and multiple sclerosis by dampening the body's immune reaction, ended up in hospital, ...

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor's stroke...what she learned

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened -- as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding -- she studied and remembered every moment.

I was switched from Betaseron to Avonex but have an entire box of leftover Betaseron... can I legally sell it or even give it away? Ideally my thought was to trade it with someone who was switched from Avonex who has Avonex leftovers.

New Site

I am going to be posting a comment I got on the last post I did from a girl named Kathy from my site.

If you want to read it exactly go there...she is the second comment on the latest blog post after the a-hole spammers took over.

So there you have a second place who is starting for sure.
