Tai Chi really works to alleviate fibromyalgia

The gentle Chinese martial art of Tai Chi is more effective at relieving the symptoms of fibromyalgia than simple stretching could account for, according to a study conducted by researchers from Tufts University and published in the New England Journal of Medicine."Aside from reductions in pain, patients in the tai chi group reported improvements in mood, quality of life, sleep, self-efficacy and exercise capacity," a research team from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center wrote in an accompanying commentary.

Police State USA and the TSA Gestapo Empire

It doesn't take a bureaucrat long to create an empire.

John Pistole, the FBI agent who took over the Transportation Security Administration on July 1 told USA Today 16 days later that protecting trains and subways from terrorist attacks will be as high a priority for him as air travel.

PARP inhibitor MK4827 shows antitumor activity in first trial in humans

A new drug that targets proteins responsible for helping cancer cells to repair damage to their DNA has shown promising anti-tumour activity in its first trial in humans.
