Physicians are more suicidal than the general public: A look at why medicine is a horrible career choice (NaturalNews) For over a century, medicine has been seen an illustrious career choice for many ascribing young men and women. More students every year attempt to be part of the profession, in what has become a cash cow industry. In the 2011-2012 entering class, U.S. medical schools received applications from 43,919 students; 32,654 were first-time applicants - up 2.6 percent from the previous school term. One fact that is rarely publicized to new recruits, though, is that the image Big Pharma and the medical industry has created of medical doctors is but a shadow of the reality. The profession is riddled with high suicide rates, low quality of life and job satisfaction rates.In a study of 7,905 participating American surgeons, 6.3 percent reported suicide ideation (SI) during the previous 12 months.

This list does not include abbreviations for pharmaceuticals (which is a separate article in itself). Capitalization and the use of periods is a matter of style. In the list, Latin is not capitalized whereas English acronyms are. The period is used wherever there are letters omitted in the abbreviation. Abbreviations which are not recommended by the Joint Commission, an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization which offers "accreditation" to hospitals and other "healthcare" organizations in the United States (not binding on U.S. physicians, but required of organizations who wish "accreditation" by the Joint Commission) are marked in red.
Cell Models: An Interactive Animation Nucleolus: The prominent structure in the nucleus is the nucleolus. The nucleolus produces ribosomes, which move out of the nucleus and take positions on the rough endoplasmic reticulum where they are critical in protein synthesis. Cytosol: The cytosol is the "soup" within which all the other cell organelles reside and where most of the cellular metabolism occurs. America's doctors kill themselves at unprecedented rates (NaturalNews) According to a 2005 article in the medical journal JAMA, male doctors are 70 percent more likely to kill themselves than other male professionals. Female doctors are an astonishing 250 to 400 percent more likely to take their lives than their non-doctor counterparts. Why do U.S. doctors kill themselves at such an astonishingly high rate? While no one cause is obviously to blame, concerned observers are increasingly pointing the finger at a medical system that, from day one, fails to support or actively undermines students and doctors who may be struggling with mental illness. Show no weakness According to Pamela Wible, a Eugene, Oregon, family practitioner who researches and writes about the phenomenon of doctor suicide, an estimated 400 U.S. doctors kill themselves each year.
Cell Size and Scale Some cells are visible to the unaided eye The smallest objects that the unaided human eye can see are about 0.1 mm long. That means that under the right conditions, you might be able to see an ameoba proteus, a human egg, and a paramecium without using magnification. A magnifying glass can help you to see them more clearly, but they will still look tiny. Smaller cells are easily visible under a light microscope.
