Seagate’s blog articles and Facebook summaries are all content that was written by Seagate. We do not “share” other people’s new feeds and make it look like we were the source. However, we do use some very important tools when we research medical studies. The primary tool is the NIH’s (National Institute of Health) website search engine PubMed.
The FDA’s regulations do not allow manufacturers of health foods, supplements or homeopathic medicines to make medical claims. However we can direct people that inquire about the effect of a supplement to go to the proper search engine and type in the search words.
For example, we have these following questions posed to us all the time — “Is a side-effect from using Olive Leaf Extract, the reduction of blood pressure” or “what effect does shark cartilage have on inflammation or arthritis”. Of course we cannot answer these questions as Seagate. However, we direct the person to PubMed and have them enter olive leaf extract and blood pressure into the search box, or shark cartilage and arthritis. Try it yourself. The results may interest you.
PubMed is the central repository for published medical research articles around the world. Currently, it contains over 2.3 million medical articles, with over 100,000 being added monthly. Over 4,000 journals around the world participate in directly depositing their research articles into PubMed’s repository.
So whether you have a question about broccoli and H. Pylori bacteria, or omega-3’s and dementia, you now have a place to go and find your answers by reading the actual medical research. It is so easy, your granddaughter can show you how to find the information on the internet.
Sometimes as a change of pace, I enjoy cave-diving. After all, at 63 years old and 44 years diving, you sometimes need an extra adrenaline rush. The photo below is a notch in a wall that is the exit for a very dark cave.
However, it is the darkness and stillness inside the cave that make the real experience. The photo below is exactly how this cave looks in darkness with minimal lighting. There is a diver in front of me. You can just barely make out his air tank with its white sticker.
Below is the exact same picture with the lighting enhanced during editing, to show what your eye cannot see in the dark — the hidden diver and the narrow cave walls.
