Worlds Best Medical Care?
Many Americans are under the delusion that we have the best health care system in the world, as President Bush sees it, or provide the best medical care in the world, as Rudolph Giuliani declared last week.

What happens when we die? (radio show)2007-08-28 10:35:45 by Jungledave
Here's a very interesting radio show about the near-death experience (NDE) with Sam Parnia, Fellow in Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine at Cornell Medical Center in New York, and Senior Research Fellow at the School of Medicine at the University of Southampton in the UK.
To listen, click on one of the two tabs above the headline on this link page:
I know many NDErs personally, as I facilitate a group that studies and discusses NDE's. What most NDErs would like you to know is that there is no death and no reason to fear it, that you live forever, and that you are loved unconditionally - regardless of your beliefs (or non-beliefs)

He developed a vaccine against poliomyelitis by cultivating three strains of the virus separately in monkey tissue. The virus was separated from the tissue, stored for a week, killed with formaldehyde, then tested to make certain that it is dead
