Politics Heating Up Over Labeling Genetically Modified Foods

Scientists and regulators have concluded time and time again that labeling genetically modified foods is unnecessary because they are no different than other foods. But food policy experts say just label them, already, so people can make their own choices.

Do Botulinum Injections Help Or Hinder The Effect Of Serial Casting?

I am a forum junkie. If there is a forum about something I am interested in, then I am there. I participate in forums for my remote-controlled vehicle addiction, for my new cycling addiction, for the eagerly anticipated massively multi-player online role-playing game (MMORPG) “The Old Republic” and, of course, for various topics in podiatry. I am more of a spectator with professional forums. I prefer to read and learn from others rather than participate in these forums.

 Minimalist Shoes And Injuries: Keys To Diagnosis And Patient Education

Footwear News reports that the emergent category of minimalist shoes represents between 10 and 20 percent of the business of runner specialty stores.1 Through July 2011, minimalist shoe sales have already totaled $30 million, up nearly twofold from the year-ago period. What this means to podiatrists is the trend toward minimalist shoe purchases is not a temporary flash in the pan phenomenon but rather a groundswell of change, at least for now.

Publish Or Perish: The Importance Of Sharing Our Knowledge

I attend a lot of foot and ankle specialty meetings throughout the year. I enjoy the academic stimulation and continuing to learn as well as the camaraderie with other professionals. What continues to puzzle me, however, is that we have many talented and experienced physicians who never publish or share their knowledge.

 Can 3D Templating And Simulation Enhance Surgical Planning?

We at the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA) have long embraced the benefits of interconnectivity and open source solutions. Surgical planning and collaboration are no exception. The concept of 3D surgical “printing” (templating and simulation) in lower extremity reconstruction is not entirely commonplace. This is likely for a number of reasons. With the continual maturation of free and open source software applications as well as the ever increasing capabilities of “RepRap” technology (see http://reprap.org/wiki/Main_Page ), we can overcome these limitations.

A Closer Look At The Recent Literature On Infectious Diseases And Antibiotics

As I mentioned in a previous post, there are a number of journals I follow to stay abreast of developments in the infectious disease, microbiology and antibiotic world (see http://bit.ly/iLJb6k ). For updates on the latest in antibiotic development from pre-clinical through clinical testing, no journal beats the American Society of Microbiology’s Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (http://aac.asm.org/ ).

What A Lecture Trip To England Revealed About The Country’s National Healthcare System

During my recent trip to England, I participated as a faculty member at two podiatry and physiotherapy meetings. This was my third trip to the country in the past five years, giving me the opportunity to lecture and interact with colleagues. My experiences this time ran the gamut from dismay about the healthcare system in the United Kingdom to awe and respect for the level of care many of our colleagues offer in this country.

Beyond The White Coat: Seeing The ER From A Patient’s Perspective

I recently had the opportunity to spend a long, anxiety-ridden day waiting in the emergency room in an unusual capacity: as the family member of a patient. As many of us, I spend a fair amount of time in the emergency room. However, I have learned that time spent in a professional capacity has a very different feel than time spent watching the clock, waiting for the nurse, the physician and the eventual “news.”
