The human body never ceases to amaze me. The more I learn, the more I wonder, the more questions have to be asked and more research to do. I just adore the human body: its physiology, chemistry, pharmacodynamics, anatomy, biology.
Studying medicine is never-ending and has always been an honor and a scientific privilege from which I am deeply humbled.
Learning science, practicing it, understanding it, loving it! I also cherish many scientists who have given us the pleasure of expanding our way of living and our mental horizons and who have worked tirelessly to better humanity. So here there are some quotes from one of the so many scientists that I deeply admire.
“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.” — Isaac Asimov
“I am not a speed reader. I am a speed understander.” — Isaac Asimov ”
“There is a single light of science, and to brighten it anywhere is to brighten it everywhere.” — Isaac Asimov
“Suppose that we are wise enough to learn and know – and yet not wise enough to control our learning and knowledge so that we use it to destroy ourselves? Even if that is so, knowledge remains better than ignorance .” — Isaac Asimov
As Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) begins to affect your body, small joints like your fingers and toes may become warm, stiff, or swollen. These symptoms may come and go and can last a few days or a few weeks.
If not treated adequately, RA can have a significant impact on a patient’s daily life. 60% of people who have RA but are not receiving effective treatment may be unable to work after 10 years.
This was way before Google Earth. This photo was the first ever to be taken from outer space, showing planet Earth through the lens of a 35-millimeter camera that was attached to a missile. This first picture of Earth from space was taken in 1946 aboard a V-2 rocket, but it was grainy and barely recognizable as Earth.
This gas-proof carriage was designed after the British were afraid that Nazi Germany would poison the population with a toxic gas attack.
From 1920-1933, Alcohol was banned in the United States. Before that, beer and all that was legal so you can imagine the disappointment of these men when alcohol was taken away from them! Riots, hahaha.

It is so much easier to use logic than being absurd. I have no idea how illogical people manage their “entangled” thoughts. It must be very confusing and painful for their minds.
When religious fanatics approach me to try to “accept” their god or religion, I just walk away. Do not talk to them. They have an illogical mind. They will never reason. My time is precious.
If we all used logic more often…
And now our FREETHOUGHT OF THE WEEK!
The symptoms of a panic attack and a heart attack can be very similar, making it difficult to tell the difference.
If someone thinks they may be having a heart attack, they should seek emergency medical attention.
Having a heart attack also can cause someone to panic, which may make the situation more confusing.
Quite often we don’t recognize the brilliant and brave labor that the cleaning personal does in hospitals, clinics, medical offices, in the middle of the Covid-19 Pandemic. They have also been in the front line in the fight against the coronavirus.
Today I want to congratulate them all, in all countries of the world for their valor and love for their work. I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for being great warriors everyday, ready to help us, doctors, nurses and patients. Your help has been so valuable and appreciated. I wish you the best to you and your families, peace, love and over all: health.
