Medical Breakthroughs: First to Know

Letter from Ivanhoe's President

A Day to Remember

     For those who were alive on this day in 1941 and those of us whose parents were, today will always be a time for reflection and remembrance of the attack on Pearl Harbor that led the United States to enter World War II. As opposed as I am to almost every war people want us to get into now, I can’t see how we could have dealt with Hitler any other way. Does that mean there will be other world wars? I certainly hope not.
     Watch our Medical Headline Videos:
  •      Sunshine Cottage School for Deaf Children in San Antonio is using Bluetooth-type technology to create a “user-friendly” environment for the hearing impaired. It’s called the Roger system.
  •      Dr Paul Thuluvath, MD, FRCP at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore is using a new non-invasive method to measure liver disease. It’s called FibroScan.
  •      Dr Roneil Malkani, MD, Neurologist of Sleep Medicine at Northwestern Medicine in Chicago is studying a much-needednew treatment for sleep apnea. It is called Dronabinol and is the synthetic form of cannabis.
     Our first special report examines the GMO vs Non-GMO issue. Glenda Hyde, Senior Instructor at Oregon State University says, “all the food that’s on the market right now is very, very safe and you can trust that it can be eaten.” I still want it labeled so I can choose.
     “Indoor Pollution” is worth reading because Shane Kenny, DEO of Filter Snap has some good advice.

And there's more where that came from...
