Re:

MichaelXY - Mmmm. That was alot on a website to digest. I found myself agreeing with the website authors at times, but then at other times not agreeing because they just dismissed the idea. It is a heterogenous mixture of claims on both sides. Overall, I looked at the concept that if the digestive ...

Re: Need help preping for exam

Re:

Do you see there being a need for minors participating in clinical trials? I know at least one person that had cancer when she was young - and I'm pretty sure she's just glad she's alive. If we saw a rash of over dosage or unacceptable levels of side-effects then I'd say a red flag needs to be rais...

Re: Clinical trial in children

The main reason I was asking the above questions was that I was trying to prepare myself for a job interview that I had today. The position was for a web page writer in a non profit organization aimed at treating children with cancer. The co-founder of the organization thinks I will do well in trans...

Re: Stomach bloating and weight gain

Not so. Not most ingested enzymes will be denatured and destroyed upon entering the stomache. Stomach acids do not secrete until the food is ingested and takes a couple of minutes to "gear up" for the meal coming (acinar cells and pancreatic juices). Setting the denature claim aside, enzy...

Re: Clinical trial in children

It seems to me that we have very accurate ways of determining a person's metabolic rate - so the smarties at the pharmaceutical companies should be able to figure out how to scale their medications not only according to mass but metabolism as well ... In an ideal world perhaps, but unfortunately ch...

Re:

Certain medications such as innoculations are vital to have administered during youth. If such a medication is being tested, I see no other way to perform a clinical trial than on children... It would be good to have not only the parents consent, but the child's as well. I haven't heard of any chil...
