Epigenetic and Insurtech Update, Week of December 3, 2018

Epigenetic and Insurtech Update, Week of December 3, 2018   Cancer DNA binds to gold. That could lead to new cancer blood test This is a truly amazing research article that provides insight into things to come! I spoke with several leading researchers on this topic and they agreed that the process/results make sense and the results holds up – its a big deal. https://www.livescience.com/64234-cancer-dna-gold-new-test.html   Liquid biopsy detects epigenetic signature common to all cancers https://www.genengnews.com/news/liquid-biopsy-detects-epigenetic-signature-common-to-all-cancers/   Epigenetic map may pave way for new therapeutic solutions to hearing loss https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-12-epigenetic-pave-therapeutic-solutions-loss.html   Researchers find evidence of epigenetics in single-cell organisms...

Clavicle Plate Removal: Collar Bone Surgical Repair – Installment #2

Clavicle Plate Removal: Collar Bone Surgical Repair – Installment #2   Recently, I received some inquires about updates on my recovery from my collarbone fracture/plate install/removal.  So I am very happy my post somehow found its way into the hands of people wondering the same things I was.  The decision making process on what treatment option to pursue is challenging.  And after, there is less information on what to do if you decided to put the common plate repair in.  So while there is a lot of information on the web, I did not find the type of information I...

Dear East St. Paul: 3M’s Poisoned Your Water

Rarely do you ever come across a story in national new that so heavily impacts Minnesotan’s as the story in Bloomberg news about the polluting and poisoning 3M has perpetrated against its local neighbors in East St. Paul.  My only guess is that 3M used its local power and influence to quash a story that threatens so many people living in St. Paul, Woodbury, Lake Elmo, Newport, Cottage Grove and Oakdale.   If you live in these communities, you must read this story and understand the poison lurking in your drinking water. Apparently, for about 20 years (1956 to 1974) 3M...

Dr. Morgan Levine: You have two ages. It matters

I have the pleasure of working with Dr. Morgan Levine, one of the world’s leading researchers in biological aging.  And now thanks to a report from  CNN you can have insights into her work.  WATCH CNN VIDEO HERE. Dr. Levine published a seminal research paper in 2018 entitled “An epigenetic biomarker of aging for lifespan and health span.”  This work builds from the research published by Dr. Steve Horvath on predictive human longevity.  Dr. Levine takes that research to another level looking more precisely at biomarkers which indicate risk of early mortality. According to Levine’s research, essentially, everyone has two...
