The cellular basis for behavior modification?
Dr. Sweatt is conducting some very important research at Baylor Medical School--perhaps this is not so far fetched
It is like the brains and the muscle in society--PR firms and bewildered audiences.
The Brains sez it is unamerican
and the muscle has a paroxysm of rage--the thought alone that some one interrupted the two minute warning with a reference to 1984.
It begs the question--Can an old dog really be taught new tricks?
Or are they destined for desensitized homogeneity? These are the people that fuel the engines of capitalism--base ignorance. I favor the latter.

And there is some controversy in medical research about this, conflicting studies about whether it has advantages over T4 alone for most folks with hypothyroidism. mary Shoman has a good discussion of this in her book, as revised in 2005, Living Well with Hypothyroidism. Some of us with hypothyroidism for reasons no one fully understands, do not get better on T4 alone.
The normal healthy thyroid gland produces both T4 and T3, so if you take both IN THE RIGHT PROPORTION, then it should be fine as long as your labs do not show your T3 to be in the upper third of the normal range or above
