Now a medical device manufacturer based in Germany has announced that it has just received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to expand their product offerings by producing a 3D-printed cervical device that can be used in the treatment of certain spinal defects and injuries. According to the announcement, which was posted on the official website of Emerging Implant Technologies GmbH (EIT), the FDA has given them clearance for the expansion of the label of their so-called EIT Cellular Titanium Cervical Cage, which is said to be designed for use in multiple contiguous cervical levels, namely C2 to T1.

In the meantime, however, as tensions rise with potential adversaries old and new around the globe, reducing our reliance on often volatile supplies in equally volatile parts of the world is a major boost to our national security, to say nothing of our continued economic advancement. But we can’t do that as effectively as we might when foreign actors on behalf of hostile nations utilize freedoms in our society that do not exist in theirs to subvert our political processes. As reported by The … [Read more...] about Dakota Access Pipeline protests were promoted by Russian operatives to disrupt the U.S. energy economy

Economically, the state’s gross domestic product makes it the sixth largest economy in the world. It’s the most “progressive” state. The most tolerant. The most forward-thinking. “We’ve made unprecedented progress in every area,” State Senate leader Kevin de León told a cheering crowd at the Democratic National Convention in 2016, as delegates prepared to nominate the ‘next president of the United States, Hillary Clinton.’ Oops. That didn’t work out so well (thankfully for the country). But California, as the country’s shining example of what every state should be, was just blown up by a gigantic truth bomb and, ironically, it was a … [Read more...] about Finally, some media truth about California: U.S. News ranks the state at the BOTTOM for “quality of life”

The blood test is called the Banyan Brain Trauma Indicator (BBTI) and is now part of the FDA’s Breakthrough Devices Program. It is said that the new blood test can be used to accurately and quickly identify patients with existing brain tissue damage, or intracranial lesions, caused by head injuries without the need to resort to CT scans. Comparatively, the new blood test is not only less time-consuming, but is also a lot less expensive. In typical cases … [Read more...] about U.S. Food and Drug Administration issues approval for first blood test for concussions… but is it accurate?

American farm animals are dosed with several times the antibiotics given to locally-raised livestock, reported The Guardian. According to newly-acquired research data from the Alliance to Save Our Antibiotics, the difference in dosage rate depends on the animal involved. The U.S. uses three times more antibiotics in its chickens, twice that for pigs and five times that for turkeys. Beef cattle raised in the U.S. are loaded with nine times the antibiotics of those across the pond. American cows have as much as 16 times as their British counterparts. “U.S. cattle … [Read more...] about U.S. livestock raised for food found to have HUGE levels of antibiotics – five times more than what is allowed in the U.K.
