As hospitals, clinics, and health systems seek to overcome the wave of burnout and departures among their clinical staff, they might want to adopt an approach that they’ve used over the past decade in clinical care: choosing wisely.
Experimental cancer vaccine shows promise in animal studies
NIH researchers find IV administration improves tumor-fighting action
Honey improves key measures of cardiometabolic health, study finds
These results are surprising, because honey is about 80 per cent sugar. But honey is also a complex composition of common and rare sugars, proteins, organic acids and other bioactive compounds that very likely have health benefits.

Largest Autism Whole Genome Sequencing Study Reveals 134 Autism-Linked Genes
Study sequences the entire genomes of more than 11,000 individuals, offering new insights
Study uncovers new rules for lineage progression
The hypothalamus, one of the most complex brain regions in the mammalian nervous system, contains an astonishing heterogeneity of neurons that regulate endocrine, autonomic and behavioral functions. It not only regulates food consumption, water intake, body temperature, circadian rhythm and sleep to maintain the survival of individual organisms, but also controls puberty onset and reproductive behavior to sustain the breeding population.
