Fish Liver Oil

Liquid Sunshine

...Near the beginning of TB treatment in sanatoria, it became known that the sun helped to kill TB bacteria (see heliotherapy). When the Sun's UV rays hit human skin, vitamin D is produced. Naturally, when cod fish were found to be rich in vitamin D, it followed that their oil was sold as "liquid sunshine" (this was a real advertisement in the Valley Echo, March 1944). Cod Liver Oil is still used in "traditional" medicine today, and as an important dietary supplement, but no real evidence exists that it helps to cure tuberculosis.

Osler Rendu Weber disease


Fig.1  Pulmonary arteriogram demonstrates arteriovenous fistulae in left upper lobe and at the base of both lower lobes.


arteriovenous fistulae are abnormal connections
between arteries and veins creating a 'shunt' or
'by-pass' leading to enlargement of blood vessels
and to a consistent risk of rupture and hemorrhage.


Cardiovascular Imaging:  Osler rendu weber disease


(Sir William Osler, 1849 - 1919, Canadian-born American physician; Henri Jules Louis Marie Rendu, 1844 - 1902, French physician and Frederick Parkes Weber, 1863 - 1962, British physician) (also called hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia), autosomal dominant inherited disease, which is readily recognized by mucocutaneous telangiectasias of the tongue, lips and fingertips. Arteriovenous fistulae cause recurrent epistaxis and overt or occult gastrointestinal bleeding. Multiple pulmonary arteriovenous fistulae cause cyanosis, hypoxaemia, polycythaemia and paradoxical embolization.
 Chest X-ray may disclose pulmonary nodules or apparent focal consolidation with two large contiguous vessels representing dilated feeding artery and draining vein. Numerous fistulae can produce apparent pulmonary plethora. The size and site of the fistulae can be confirmed by pulmonary arteriography (Fig.1) and closed by transcatheter embolization. Pulmonary fistulae can also be identified with CT and MRI. Because blood flow in the fistulae causes high signal intensity on gradient echo (GRE) images, cine GRE is used for this evaluation. Fistulae can also be shown by contrast enhanced three-dimensional MR angiography. For a general description of the disease, see Osler Rendu Weber disease.

Q-Fever



Q fever: An acute febrile illness due to Coxiella burnetii (C. burnetii), a species of bacteria. Q fever is a zoonotic disease (contracted from animals). Aside from sudden onset of fever, there is headache, malaise, and pneumonia but no rash.

The disease was first reported in 1935 in Queensland, Australia. The Q is said not to be for Queensland, but for Query since the cause of the disease was long a query (a question mark).

In 1999, Q fever became a notifiable disease in the United States but reporting is not required in many other countries. Because the disease is underreported, scientists cannot reliably assess how many cases of Q fever have actually occurred worldwide. Many human infections are inapparent

Tits

The tits, chickadees, and titmice, family Paridae, are a large family of small passerine birds which occur in the northern hemisphere and Africa. Most were formerly in the genus Parus.

These birds are called "chickadees" (onomatopoeic, derived from their distinctive "chick-a dee dee dee" alarm call) or "titmice" in North America, and just "tits" in the rest of the English speaking world. The name titmouse is attested from the 14th century, composed of the Old English name for the bird, mase (Proto-Germanic *maison) and tit, denoting something small. The spelling was influenced by mouse in the 16th century.

These birds are mainly small stocky woodland species with short stout bills. Some have crests. They are adaptable birds, with a mixed diet including seeds and insects. Many species will live around human habitation and come readily to bird feeders for nuts or seed, and learn to take other foods. In England, Great Tits and Blue Tits famously learned to break open the foil caps sealing bottles of milk that had been delivered to homes to get at the cream floating on top.

These are hole-nesting birds laying speckled white eggs.

Vitiligo


What Is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo (vit-ill-EYE-go) is a pigmentation disorder in which melanocytes (the cells that make pigment) in the skin, the mucous membranes (tissues that line the inside of the mouth and nose and genital and rectal areas), and the retina (inner layer of the eyeball) are destroyed. As a result, white patches of skin appear on different parts of the body. The hair that grows in areas affected by vitiligo usually turns white.

The cause of vitiligo is not known, but doctors and researchers have several different theories. One theory is that people develop antibodies that destroy the melanocytes in their own bodies. Another theory is that melanocytes destroy themselves. Finally, some people have reported that a single event such as sunburn or emotional distress triggered vitiligo; however, these events have not been scientifically proven to cause vitiligo.
