Gray's anatomy
Gray's anatomy picture of the day

The term human anatomy comprises a consideration of the various structures which make up the human organism. In a restricted sense it deals merely with the parts which form the fully developed individual and which can be rendered evident to the naked eye by various methods of dissection. Regarded from such a standpoint it may be studied by two methods: (1) the various structures may be separately considered—systematic anatomy or (2) the organs and tissues may be studied in relation to one another—topographical or regional anatomyLearn More on Gray's anatomy

Health is the state of complete physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being.

World's first healthcare provider wiki directory

Main Page is part of the world directory of all healthcare providers with a biographic, encyclopedia style article about the provider, cloud sourced in a wiki - the first of its kind in the world. The purpose of this list is to enable a complete profile to be made for each of the providers with all the details starting from their childhood, medical education, residency, fellowships, publications, specializations, conditions treated, procedures performed, list of insurances accepted, hospitals they have privileges, along with their interests, research areas, hobbies, social media profile, patient and peer reviews and more to get a complete picture of the provider.

Physicians claim your profile

If you are ever grateful to a healthcare provider, be it a physician, nurse, or other providers, or you are a provider yourself, please join us in this endeavor. In order to get an idea on how to create a physician profile, see an example. Visual editing a WikiMD page is as easy as typing in word, no special skills required. Healthcare providers, claim and edit your profile.

Study:Up to 90% of traditional nutrition advice wrong

Study:Dietary cholesterol may not raise cardiovascular risk

Although you have long heard that dietary cholesterol is generally not good for the cardiovascular health, you might be surprised to know that high quality, well conducted research studies have shown no relationship between dietary cholesterol and cardiovascular disease. Learn more on the high-quality research published on circulation, that found no link between dietary cholesterol and heart disease. The opposite of what this study showed was long presumed to be true and was the basis of the erroneous diet heart hypothesis which in turn formed the basis for the many failed dietary recommendations such as the food pyramid.

Blood cholesterol and dietary cholesterol are not the same

The secret of understanding this seemingly contradictory finding, that blood cholesterol increases the heard disease risk but not the dietary cholesterol, is the fact that most of blood cholesterol, is manufactured in our own liver from glucose via Citric acid cycle or Krebs cycle. The stimulus for this liver pathway is the blood sugar control hormone, insulin, which increased dramatically in the last 50 years due to the low fat but high starch diet that was promoted as healthy (called insulin resistance).
