Here is an even larger survey of recent medical advances than our last attempt in 2012 ! The possibilities are certainly life-enhancing for all of us. The threats still involve large numbers of deaths from malaria and the almost total resistance to antibiotics in some places. Against such threats, doctor and the medics seems to be progressing well. The prognosis is good health!

On being the right size

Rarely do we see animal biology impinging on our separate human existence. As medicine has incorporated more veterinary and other work. However, it should come as no surprise that our very intimate knowledge of life and death should be invaded by knowledge achieved from the study of a small bird. Now we know why our body size is of great importance in determining life span.

Many considerations should determine how we approach health issues, pests and even bites we think we have. The effects of unfamiliar bites especially may be made more obvious by this interesting study of biological control. The control is there, but it’s in the spiders hands!

Auto-Immune Deficiency Disease is very much an issue still although many, young and old, ignore it. Those who can afford to spend our health service cash on drugs survive well, but in Africa, the support for prevention or relief is almost nil.

We hate the irritation and the mess of blood parasites that attack us in the form of leeches and mosquitoes. The trouble is the leech does not infect us while the mosquito is simply the agent for the malaria parasite and many others, which it tries to resist with very useful immune responses.

Do we want to live longer? The question needs to be asked of those who have achieved great age. The science of ageing is finally coming-of-age as we approach an allele that can eliminate those pesky cells that can’t stay healthy any more and move towards the organs and tissues that work even when we are very old. Life may not need to be longer, but it could be better.
