An amazing 5-minute video of the past, present and future of the NIH
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the nation's medical research agency—making important discoveries that improve health and save lives. Thanks in large part to NIH-funded medical research, Americans today are living longer and healthier. Life expectancy in the United States has jumped from 47 years in 1900 to 78 years as reported in 2009, and disability in people over age 65 has dropped dramatically in the past 3 decades. In recent years, nationwide rates of new diagnoses and deaths from all cancers combined have fallen significantly. The National Institutes of Health calls the beautiful city of Bethesda, Maryland home. Check out why this unique city houses some of the top people in the medical field.

Building 10 at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is where the medicine of tomorrow is created. I personally do not like the name of this documentary. I loved Building 10 when that is what you were going to call it.i am also so so disappointed that after following my boys around for days that they decided not to use them because they have not been healed yet. Sometimes there are not endings but the research goes on. I am really tired of not being able to watch @Discovery shows online because I have @dish. #disgusted #badcustomerservice #wasteofmoney
National Institutes of Health | Overview
VICTORY: Following an intensive yearlong PETA campaign, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced that it’s ending the cruel psychological experiments on baby monkeys conducted by Stephen Suomi, who led this horrendous project at NIH for more than 30 years. His laboratory is being closed down, and he will no longer be involved in any experiments on animals: http://www.peta.org/blog/nih-ends-baby-monkey-experiments/. Shocking videos obtained by PETA show the National Institutes of Health (NIH) terrorizing baby monkeys it has intentionally bred to be mentally ill, wasting more than $30 million in taxpayer money. See the shocking facts here: http://investigations.peta.org/nih-baby-monkey-experiments/. Each year, dozens of monkeys are born at this NIH facility, many intentional...
All of Us, a new project by the National Institutes of Health, is aiming to voluntarily collect medical history from at least a million Americans. With a focus on underrepresented groups in medical research like women and minorities, the project wants to advance precision medicine, but is spurring questions about data collection and privacy. The Washington Post’s Lenny Bernstein joins Hari Sreenivasan for more.

The National Institutes of Health is the world’s leading supporter of fundamental discovery that extends healthy lives and reduces the burden of illness. Thanks to the Congressional investment, NIH-supported research has met some of our nation’s biggest health challenges. As the appropriations process begins in earnest, Dr. Keith Yamamoto, of the University of California, San Francisco, provides a timely look at the NIH peer review process and the types of grants funded by the agency. In addition, he discusses how NIH sets research priorities and solicits input from the scientific community and the public.
agingresearch.org/rally This video calls on President Obama, Health and Human Services Secretary Burwell, and members of Congress to work together to increase funding in support of the valuable work of the National Institutes of Health. It features real people who are passionate about the difference medical research has made in their lives; they are living proof of the impact of the NIH. It was introduced at this year's Rally for Medical Research on September 17. The Alliance encourages everyone who watches this video to share it with others.

Dr. Carl Dieffenbach, Director of the Division of AIDS at NIH: "If you are durably virologicially suppressed you will not transmit to your partner... I'll say this again, for somebody who is in a discordant couple, if the person [with HIV] is virologically suppressed, 'durably' --means there is no virus in your system, hasn't been for several months -- your chance of acquiring HIV from that person is ZERO, let's be clear about that: ZERO. If that person the next day stops therapy for two weeks and rebounds, your chance goes up. That's why we talk about durable viral suppression. ...You're as virologically suppressed as good as your adherence. That's the message."

Read more at www.biobalancehealth.com The National Institute of Health has just released some studies that they have done supporting hormone replacement of Testosterone in men age 65 and older, who have low testosterone amounts. They were seeking to determine if this replacement would help men with mood issues, low sexual drives and mobility. They did not examine testosterone and women and they did not use pellets in their research. However they did use gels and they DID find that when they brought testosterone back to young healthy levels in men these men improved in two of the three areas, most specifically in libido and sexual function! Dr. Maupin’s practice has found through experience with literally thousands of patients, both men and women, that by replacing your testosterone back ...

The 2018 budget proposal for the Trump administration has scientists alarmed. President Donald Trump's first budget released last week proposed to cut payments to the National Institutes of Health. The NIH helps universities, hospitals, and research institutes pay for research through federal grants. According to the budget, indirect cost payments will be cut by two-thirds, while each grant will be reduced by 10-percent. The change will allow the administration to redirect about $4.6 billion granted to researchers for maintaining labs and complying with regulations. The shift in policy is also expected to cut the NIH budget by 22-percent. http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/06/nih-plan-reduce-overhead-payments-draws-fire http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News usin...

CRISPR gene editing is widely used by biologists as the DNA programming tool of choice to alter the genome of organisms and even populations. By modifying the DNA of mosquitoes, we could prevent them from reproducing—potentially eradicating them completely. But is that something we should actually want to see? Join Rockefeller University professor Leslie Vosshall as she demonstrates what is—and what will be—possible. This lecture took place at the Museum on January 4, 2016.

It grew into the National Institute for Public Health, providing advice to policy makers and enabling Mexico to become a global health leader.
Mauritius in the Indian Ocean is known for its sparkling crystal and turquoise waters. The contrast of colours, cultures and tastes makes the island a location for an unforgettable holiday. Mauritius offers the opportunity to unparalleled luxury, a level of refinement that is ahead of many other other tropical holiday destinations. Mauritius was named after Dutch Prince Maurice Van Nassau. Mauritius' white beaches are protected by a coral reef barrier that encircles almost all of the coastline, with the exception of the southern end, where it falls away and where wilder waters and dramatic cliffs can be observed. From the northern plains, the land rises to a central plateau dotted by lakes and extinct volcanic craters. A few uninhabited islets area are scattered around the main island. P...
This 1988 film produced by the National Institute of Health presents the problems and costs of drug use while working for the workplace, the individual, and the public. Not the best quality, but it was the only print i could find and is apparently quite rare since it was only distributed on VHS and has a low survival rate. A work of the federal government it is in the public domain.

Bisphenol A - or BPA for short - is one of the more contentious chemicals on the block at the moment. Companies making BPA, and the products that contain it, claim that the substance is safe if used sensibly. But others aren't so sure. Risk bites will be delving more into the science behind BPA risks in later episodes. But before getting into the risks and benefits, it makes sense to talk about what the stuff actually is, and where it is used.

From the cradle to the grave
There are roads for us all
that we'll find, and follow to the end
Leading upwards to a place in the stars,
ten million miles away...
There's a path called Tenemos Roads
Everything happening there is history,
pictures of ages before we were born
But the sound of men in battle makes me cry
out in my dreams.
Hearing the sounds of battle far away
and the trumpets calling
marks the end of time of peace
in Tenemos Roads
Things are changing, directed by the men
who, tired of making love, make war
If you've settled down on this world, it's a good place
Men have made their homes on the land, while the fishes
all live in the sea
But although that's alright for them,
I prefer to be somewhere that's slightly more hot
There's a place a bit nearer the sun that I like quite a
I will build a home on Tenemos Roads
I will build a home on Tenemos Roads
