ByAnahad O’Connor Oct. 30, 2018 A century ago, the scientist Karl Pearson was studying cemetery headstones when he noticed something peculiar: Husbands and wives often died within a year of one another. Though not widely appreciated at the time, studies now show that stress and despair can significantly influence health, especially that of the heart. One of the most striking examples is a condition known as Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, or broken-heart syndrome, in which the death of a spouse, financial worries or some other emotional event severely weakens the heart, causing symptoms that mimic a heart attack.

Researchers worldwide once hailed his research as revolutionary, promising the seemingly impossible: a way to grow new heart cells to replace those lost in heart attacks and heart failure, leading killers in the United States. But Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, his former employers, this month accused Dr. Anversa and his laboratory of extensive scientific malpractice. More than 30 research studies produced over more than a decade contain falsified or fabricated data, officials concluded, and should be retracted. Last year the hospital paid a $10 million settlement to the federal government after the Department of Justice alleged that Dr. … [Read more...] about He Promised to Restore Damaged Hearts.

By Rahima Sohail Published: October 30, 2018 0 SHARES Share Tweet Email After spending eight days in the city, Seoul easily tops my favourite cities. PHOTOS: RAHIMA SOHAIL Whenever I’ve heard people plan vacations, Seoul, South Korea has never been part of the conversation. Maybe because of the language barrier or simply because it’s so underrated, but Pakistanis in general don’t consider Seoul a place to vacation in. This is why when I found out I’d be going to Seoul for a journalism conference, I was a little cautious. I did not know what to expect and since I didn’t anyone who had been there, I wasn’t sure how much I’d like it. However, after spending eight days in the city, Seoul easily tops my favourite cities.

A GERMAN nurse murdered 100 patients by giving them drug-induced heart attacks so he could bring them back to life, it has been claimed. Niels Hoegel is already serving a life sentence for two murders and is about to stand trial on charges that he killed a further 100 patients at two hospitals in Germany. The suspected serial killer’s trial is due to start today in the north-western city of Oldenburg. Prosecutors say the 41-year-old’s motive was to impress colleagues by trying to resuscitate the same patients he had attacked. He is accused of committing the crimes during his time at a hospital in Oldenburg between 1999 and 2002, and at another hospital in nearby Delmenhorst from 2003 to 2005. Hoegel was convicted in 2015 of two murders and two attempted murders. He is now suspected in 38 cases in Oldenburg and 62 in Delmenhorst. During that trial, he said he intentionally brought about cardiac crises in some 90 patients in Delmenhorst because he enjoyed the feeling of being … [Read more...] about German nurse serial killer Niels Hoegel ‘murdered 100 patients by giving them drug-induced heart attacks so he could bring them back to life’
