This week in health and science – 8/26/07
I haven’t been happy with anything I’ve started to post lately. Here’s my pick of this week’s posts which are all much better than mine:
Ruth at Eating Fabulous wrote about a paper in Cell concerning vitamin K and osteocalcin: the “formation of osteocalcin is dependent on Vitamin K” and “osteocalcin appears play a role in glucose metabolism by regulating the cells that produce insulin in the pancreas and release it into the bloodstream”.
Gloria blogged about a new study that indicates tha a diabetes medication might be effective against cancer: “Tumor cells that lack the regulatory gene p53 can be killed by the widely-prescribed diabetes drug Metformin”.
Kendra James wrote this week about “what happens to my heart during sex“. Apparently there are 4 stages our hearts go through: Arousal, Plateau, Orgasm and Resolution.
Kristen at Lively Women discussed issues concerning breast enhancement surgery while contemplating her friends decision to have it done. What are your thoughts on this surgery?
