Being patient is not the privilege of saints

Facing the wait with a good attitude is not a frequent characteristic of mortals, but it is not a virtue of the soul, either.

The two big lies about Coronavirus

That is why it is outrageous and unthinkable that life-saving information that would surely ...Read full article...

Coronavirus: The true purpose of mass isolation

Scientists had been concerned for a month with a fundamental coronavirus issue. They knew that China had managed to somehow control infections, in particular the city of Wuhan, with 11 million inhabitants, because of the decision to isolate the whole city from the rest of the country.

Cancer treatment multiplies by three the risk of cardiovascular complications

Renewable Polluters: Alternative Energy is worse than Fossil Fuels

Renewable energies require a large number of metals and rare earth materials whose extraction produces, in the places where they are obtained, contamination of the soil far superior to that of fossil fuels. The extraction of minerals, which has propelled China’s economic miracle caused air quality to plummet. Although this so-called black gold continues to contribute more than half of the country’s energy needs, which will be the main ...Read full article...

Air pollution kills more children than anything else

Quitting smoking DOES help cells regenerate healthy tissue

Lung cancer claims approximately two million lives a year in the world, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Tobacco use is responsible for between 80% and 90% of cases of this disease.

Female infertility and how to delay it

If a couple of healthy twenty-year-old girl and boy have sex every two or three days without using contraceptive methods, their probability of pregnancy will be around 25% monthly. When you turn 30, that percentage begins to decline very slowly.
