Since I was a child I have cultivated a few great passions in life, passions that overtime grew into professional objectives or intense hobbies. Some of these passions became a reality at adulthood, and some other ones simply didn't happen. No one is to blame, life is never linear and we, ourselves, are emotional roller-coasters who respond to time and experiences in different manners throughout our path. At some point when I was about eight years old I knew I wanted to be a medical doctor, a passion I had for taking care of people and shape their health to improved levels. By the age of 16 ..read more

From Sjogren's to Leaky Gut to Menière's to Labyrinthitis - a proposed theory
The Toxicologist Today
by
2y ago
I have come across a few published articles that cover the high incidence of systemic autoimmune diseases in patient's with Menière's Disease, for example [1, 2], but I always wondered if the other way around could also be a possibility. I mean, one of the health disturbing aspects I have seen reported in Sjogren's patients has to do with events of labyrinthitis (inflammation of part of the inner ear) or pressure put in the inner ear by a very inflamed parotid gland that can trigger vestibular disturbance (i.e., related to the inner ear and sense of balance). However, since Sjogren's is ..read more

"Leadership is taking responsibility for the people around us" (Simon Sinek) - Part II
The Toxicologist Today
by
2y ago
As expressed in my last post where I promised to publish one of the most, if not the most elevating motivational speech on management and leadership I ever witnessed; I hereby leave you with wise words from a very wise professional. Simon Sinek needs no introductions; his talks and seminars are profusely broadcasted on the web, and his teachings are pervasive for some, intrusive for others, but extremely relevant for all, i.e., organisations and the people they aggregate. So, in very thoughtful words, what does it mean for Simon Sinek, to be a leader? "What does it mean to be healthy, what d ..read more

Misconceptions of Management and Leadership - Part I
The Toxicologist Today
by
2y ago
I've held the opinion I am hereby sharing for quite a long time, due to not believing that it is indeed genuinely respected that almost universally-proclaimed freedom of speech. Everything in our lives comes at a cost, and every single action, professional and personal must be balanced very tightly and responsibly, especially in this day and age where whatever shows up in the web will forever claim its eternal footprint. However, there is a greater energy inside me that has always driven me to be as courageous and determined as my conscience demands; such does not have to come up with disrup ..read more

The buzz around vaccine adjuvants
The Toxicologist Today
by
2y ago
There has been a huge buzz recently in my line of work, coming from many preoccupied members of the public who have expressed their concern around adjuvants used in the Covid-19 vaccines. The concern is acceptable however most of what is suggested by the public is not immediately correct. A lot of people have assumed their panic because some of the adjuvants might be based on aluminium (a known heavy metal with relevant toxicity), and other adjuvants assumed by the public as more organic and for that matter supposed immediately safer to use. In order to clarify the public of the ins and outs ..read more

Some say Lion's Mane mushroom is the Jungle's King in fighting neurodegenerative diseases

Very recently, an incredible docuseries debuted on Netflix. It covers the highly interesting world of Fungi, their emergence as kings of the ecosystems, debunking the public generalised idea of an apparent volatility. We couldn't be 'more wrong'!!!! If there is a resilient species, clever for their societal dynamics, incredibly adapted to make their presence noticed with the sporulation of millions of very light microspores that get carried away by the weakest breeze, FUNGI are the deal. I wouldn't be able to reduce their tenacity and biological cleverness in a small book, let alone a paragr ..read more

On Japanese Encephalitis
The Toxicologist Today
by
2y ago
As part of my ongoing professional training I have recently come across a range of pharmaceutical products indicated for ailments that were partly unknown to me, but that due to their profile I consider obligatory to write about as these have potential to impact on the health of unaware tourists (typically immunologically naïve) travelling to areas where the incidence of such issues is very relevant. Especially now that gradually and slowly the world is opening doors and borders, once again, to tourists.  Japanese Encephalitis - this is a very relevant public issue in Asia, a seasonal e ..read more

What are 'The effects of plant-based diets on pancreatic beta-cell function'? - Part 2 of 2

On the second part of this analysis I would like to focus entirely and immediately on the study findings rather than dwelling too much on the strengths, limitations and possible confounders of the same. Anyone can read the paper and become aware of where further necessary investigations should go to account for reducing the limitations of this study, enhancing their strengths and rid of possible unnecessary confounders. The results obtained in the study by Janko et al., 2021 objectivates certain information that, even though could and is also directly and indirectly related to additional va ..read more

Why do pandemic viral infections come in waves?
The Toxicologist Today
by
2y ago
Hello readers and welcome to yet another very short post. I have been very busy over the past months, can barely make it to write anything, especially when considering the fact that I am still in the early stages of my book on Nosocomial Infections. A book that was planned to be written in one year (2019) and published for free as an online project on the following year (2020); but this pandemic we all know just forced me to postpone due to a range of life restrictions/lockdowns. Even though I struggle like never before to even read the bear minimum for keeping myself afloat in this immense ..read more

My good friend Robert Janko has published a systematic review on a very relevant topic for all of us in this day and age, especially because diabetes is still a recurrent topic for any age section, but also because vegetarianism has been the preferred punchbag for so many deniers out there; as if vegetarianism or veganism (perhaps fomented by the extremism of hipsters and their counterparts) was the monster who came to take over and impose, rather than just offer an optional view for a better life. Robert researched intensively and published his findings in the Journal of Diabetes Nursing t ..read more
