I literally love when people like her have the courage to comment on the broken scientific system. In fact, what she says is definitely important and correct. In a world where doing research is becoming a business, a desire of accumulating papers, and in many cases just the result of personal ambition (and not in the positive way), the true meaning of medical research is disappearing. This mechanism suppresses creativity, and thinking outside the box. And people to blame are those who keep adhering to this model. I really wish I was born in 1930 where research was done really with a lot of passion and creativity. #newenglandjournalofmedicine #formereditor #corruptedscience #brokensystem

Mozart was a very hectic composer. He composed 27 piano Concertos. This is one my favorite concerto. And here the pianist Andrew von Oyen plays it with his own cadenza giving one of the best interpretations of this concerto. #mozart #andrewvonoeyen #pianoconcerto22 #eflatmajor #peaceful #cadenza

Amazing post. Based on true scientific evidence vs. unfounded truth.

Milk is a big accident.🥛 Like any other mammal, a human infant drinks her mother's milk—digesting the lactose in it provides her main source of energy.⚡ By age 4 or 5, her body slows its production of lactase, the enzyme that allows for this digestive process. The evolutionary purpose? To wean a child off the breast so the next newborn can nurse without competition. Across all mammals, this passage is the same—we stop drinking milk past infancy and our bodies become 'lactose-intolerant' for life.⠀

But around 10,000 B.C., this all changed. A genetic mutation occurred, somewhere near Turkey, that turned the lactase-production gene on full-time. Humans who carried this mutation could drink milk far beyond infancy, for their whole lives. Within a few thousand years, this mutation spread throughout Eurasia, Africa, and the Middle East. In an evolutionary eye-blink, some 80% of Europeans became milk drinkers.⠀

Fast forward through the agricultural revolution, the discovery of pasteurization, the invention of the glass milk botttle, the era of the milkman, to modern marketing and the infamous ‘got milk?’ campaign that propelled this simple substance into a global commodity and the only ‘food’ that has its own category on the pyramid. Somewhere along the way, we were told to equate milk with calcium, milk with bones, milk with health, but looking back, milk deserves no more special status than pumpkin seeds for being high in magnesium.⠀

Whether or not you drink milk isn’t the question. Rather—ask why. Why do we, time and time again, allow certain foods to be elevated into ‘superfood’ status? How has culture dictated the things we choose for ‘health’ on the basis of unfounded ‘truth’?⠀

And if you are one of the 75% of the human population who is lactose-intolerant, rest assured you're not alone and you’re just not a baby cow. 🐮🙃

Next time when my little cousins ask me "What do you do for living, I will answer "I make presentations" ......😫 And yes, Martha Argerich is required to avoid desperation....#argerich #lab #research #choralphantasie #beethoven #computer #cauliflower #crackers

Okay, now that this challenge got viral I decided to participate. I don't like to take pictures of my self so I had to find rare pics. 2009 I was part of the Red Cross, that was the morning after my first CPR experience, a day I will never forget....2019 after moving 4 countries, 8 different apartments, 6 different institutions, 6 different research labs, and so many other things in between. I think I am doing pretty well, a part for my hair and nose I didn't change much.... #2009vs2019 #10yearchallenge #physicalchanges #pastvspresent #unconfortablepics

Migrants and refugees are likely to have good general health, but they can be at risk of falling sick in transition or whilst staying in receiving countries due to poor living conditions or adjustments in their lifestyle.
Health is a human right. It's time for #HealthForAll.
