It is possible that the health care debate raging in this country is simply an extended political snipe hunt that is missing the point entirely. As both sides argue over the relative merits of financing ever-spiralling costs through one method or another the fact is that medical researchers are on the verge of developing technologies that will potentially reduce the cost of many expensive procedures to the point where they may well end up costing not much more than what we spend on co-pays today. Think of the advantages which stem cell research will bring once it is fully developed. Rather than spend a lifetime in darkness the blind may one day be healed with a simple injection into their eyes or replacement of a defective eye with a healthy one grown in a laboratory. Whatever the medical costs might be they will be dwarfed by what it currently costs society to care for such unfortunate individuals.The paralysed may walk again after an injection of replacement spinal fluid. The mangled hand may simply be ordered to grow new fingers. Teeth may be instructed to fill in cavities and add a new layer of pearly whiteness. Smokers may breathe freely again after spritzing from a stem cell-packed inhaler. Even such vanities as trying out a new hair colour or seeing if you look better with blue eyes might be accomplished with ease.DNA-modified stem cells could conceivably be used to eradicate most human afflictions and genetic disorders. Death might become something that occurs only through accident or malice. Immortality beckons to the human race if only we do not quit on medical experimentation in favour of a tight-fisted accounting of every penny spent on current methodology. Support your local medical researcher because the life you extend may well be your own.

Everyone knows how hard it is to give up smoking even though smokers know how bad it is for their health. Many moderate smokers have tried to quit the habit and failed because they have been smoking for quite a while and become addicted to nicotine. Nicotine is not the real health risk with smoking, but it is the main ingredient that keeps smokers wanting to carry on smoking.

As a result, she will need to undergo another surgery to reduce the extra skin or she may have to make her breasts bigger to fill up the extra skin. (more...)

Such drugs are highly abused in the streets by many despite the fact that they haven't undergone through medical research and examination for determination of their effects and consequences to human health.

Research chemicals are usually taken for the purpose of recreation and pleasure to avert mental reflection of the users. They are not prescribed and can be toxic making it easy to see the side effects on the users. However, some of them resemble drugs just like psilocybin and mescaline. Suppliers or dealers don't engage in over the counter transactions for fear of legal issues. Research Chemicals are distributed in pellet or powder form though some dealers prefer pellets.
Medical Research findings have it that not all of these chemicals are risky because they have medicinal value when taken in the right quantities.
