I found a pair of slides illustrating an important scientific discovery made in 1959, which became known as the Organizational-Activational hypothesis. A team of scientists experimenting on guinea pigs, discovered that hormones early in life play a crucial role in determining the sex of the brain, and whether an animal will have male or female […]
The warmest season of the year is around the corner. Many of us are looking forward to school holidays, work vacations, and relaxing. And shopping often accompanies our summer fun. So take advantage of the best bargain of the season: better health – for free! That’s right, I am talking about sunshine: the light emitting […]
I graduated from London University in 1948 and retired at the age of 88 years in 2012, so I have seen some remarkable changes in the practice of medicine. I have entered many reports on this website, detailing what should be a medical revolution. One of the best professional associations that I have ever made […]

Topamax should be prescribed with a lot more care!

I can distinctly remember that a patient with autism was considered to be unusually rare at that time. It was a habit of the pediatric staff to meet regularly […]
Most people love carbohydrates. They taste good and we think because they taste good, they should be good for us. Popeye, the cartoon character from the 20th Century that millions of children grew up watching, was strong and full of energy because of eating spinach. Spinach is a carbohydrate. In later years children’s characters, such […]
