A mid-to late-19th century prayer stick was researched, documented, and analyzed for its form and function. Animal spirits representations identified in the stick made use of beaver (probably linked to the 19th century struggling pelt industry), bears, bison and raven, with the latter animal spirit responsible for most of the artefact’s carved form and function. The location of the area this medicine or prayer stick symbolized was a large plains states region with buffalo residing locally.

Photo: M. Karunakaran Wouldn't it be nice to have a better sort of oral polio vaccine? Widespread use of the oral vaccine has brought the eradication of polio tantalisingly within reach. Since 1988 when the world embarked on an effort to wipe out the disease entirely, the number of cases has fallen by 99.8 per cent. Developed by an American scientist, Albert Sabin, the oral polio vaccine (OPV) uses weakened strains of the virus. Child_vaccination. Institute of Medicine (IOM) Reports. The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) was established in 1863 under President Abraham Lincoln's administraton to report on science to policymakers and the public.
In 1970 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) was chartered as the health arm of the NAS to provide evidence to the government and private sector that would assist in informed health decisions. Since 1982, NVIC has advocated that well-designed, independent, on-going scientific studies must be conducted to: (1) define the various biological mechanisms involved in vaccine injury and death: (2) identify genetic and other biological high risk factors for suffering chronic brain and immune system dysfunction after vaccination; and (3) evaluate short and long-term health outcomes of individuals, who use many vaccines, and those, who use fewer or no vaccines, to determine the health effects of vaccination on individuals and the public health.

Black mamba venom is 'better painkiller' than morphine. 3 October 2012Last updated at 13:00 ET By James Gallagher Health and science reporter, BBC News A painkiller as powerful as morphine, but without most of the side-effects, has been found in the deadly venom of the black mamba, say French scientists.

Keep it Simple One of the biggest obstacles people have to starting any medication, especially a psychiatric/neurological medication, has to do with side effects - called adverse reactions and adverse events by researchers and people in the pharmaceutical industry. Why do humans still have body hair? Human body hair might seem to be useless on today's modern man, but it could help us detect parasites, researchers suggest, adding there's a chance our female ancestors preferred a bug-free mate, and so opted for hairier guys.
Humans appear relatively hairless compared with our ape relatives, but the density of hair follicles on our skin is actually the same as would be expected of an ape our size. The fine hairs that cover our bodies, which have replaced the thicker ones seen on our close relatives, are thought to be an evolutionary leftover from our hairy ancestors. Odd reason some guys have fewer sex partners. Men who were born without a sense of smell report having far fewer sexual partners than other men do, and women with the same disorder report being more insecure in their partnerships, according to new research.
The researchers don't know why romantic difficulties could be tied to smell, but they say one possibility is that people with anosmia, or no sense of smell, are insecure, having missed many emotional signals all their life. "A lot of social signals are transported through the olfactory channel, and they are probably missing them," said lead author Ilona Croy, a psychologist at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. The findings were published Nov. 22 in the journal Biological Psychology. Guess which human body part stumped da Vinci? Leonardo da Vinci's 500-year-old illustrations of human anatomy are uncannily accurate with just one major exception: the female reproductive system.
That's probably because Leonardo had a tough time finding female corpses to dissect, explains Peter Abrahams, a practicing physician at the University of Warwick Medical School in the United Kingdom. Abrahams, a clinical anatomist, has lent his knowledge to an audio tour of the exhibit of Leonardo's anatomical drawings that opened May 4 in Buckingham Palace. The Italian Renaissance artist learned anatomy as a way to improve his drawings of the human form, but he also brought a scientist's eye to the discipline.
