Stem Cells and Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease

It has been a month since I left off on my discussion on why Rheumatoid Arthritis should be renamed as Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease and I apologize for that. Luckily, Tanya said I could take advantage of her RA Twist, so this is probably going to take a couple years to finish. Who knows, the world is supposed to end in December, so maybe it will never be completed.

Stem Cell Research for a cure to RAD?

Anyway, when I left off I was tying RAD together with South Park. As I mentioned earlier in the article about why RA should be called RAD, Tanya and I had just watched the movie ‘Burzynski’ which is about Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, a medical doctor that has seemed to have come up with a very effective method of combating even the most deadly of cancers. While one would hope that the medical community would be elated, the FDA started prosecuting the man because he was the sole patent holder on his discovery and big pharmaceutical companies would be losing a major cash cow. For me personally, the thing that upset me the most was not the bureaucratic bullshit, I expect that, but the fact that chemotherapy was the preferred method and that was a technology developed in the 1940’s! It made me wonder the likelihood of big pharmaceutical allowing a cure for RAD or any other killer disease. Then South Park came on. Continue reading

An American’s view of Barcelona – Street photography

Earlier this month I went to Barcelona, Spain to cover a trade show. In the past, Tanya would join me on my travels, be they be within the country or overseas. Unfortunately, her Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (RAD aka Rheumatoid Arthritis or RA) has made international travel a thing of the past for her. Hopefully she will find a good drug combination that will put her back into remission, but until that happens I will be doing most of my travels solo.

Since Tanya is unable to travel with me and I take far too many photos for her to sit down and go through the thousands I come home with, I have decided to create this abridged photo version so she can see the highlights of Barcelona. No need to feel too sorry for her, as she has been to Spain twice, so she knows about the good food and wine they have. This gallery is part of my commitment to write 365 blog posts to help bring awareness to the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation. Continue reading

Must Love Dog

I have become aware that I have a lot of new readers, so I will have to stop presuming that you know anything about me. Well, I am a dog person. Naturally, there are cats that I can and have appreciated, but push comes to shove, dogs win every time. I have Buddy. Buddy is a comfort dog and has traveled with me all over the country. He even went to Joplin to offer support to the victims of their tornado strike in 2011. I do not think you will find anyone that could suggest that I am not a fan of dogs. The thing is, not all dogs are equal. Unless you are very lucky, it takes a lot of work to end up with a dog like Buddy.
