"Normal cholesterol" doesn't guarantee healthy heart.

The "low fat diets will prolong your life fantasy": or why scientists and other groups fall prey to the fads called “informational cascades.”

43 hour tumor operation: fascinating in every way. Interesting side note; in the accompanying slide show one image is described with these words: Surgeons spent many hours dissecting organs and tissues that had become stuck together from scarring caused by radiation treatments.
