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 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 anatomy.

Changing dietary recommendations

  • Are you aware that the American Heart Association no longer recommends specific target level for dietary cholesterol as study after study showed no increased risk of cardiovascular risk from dietary cholesterol?(Most of the blood cholesterol which does increase the risk comes from our own liver manufactured from sugar induced by insulin, although your doctor might still be telling you the same old things just as the failed food pyramid did?). It is a shocking to know that most physicians receive little or no nutrition education in their training.

Unfortunately, these wrong dietary recommendations are one of the main reasons behind astronomical rise of insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes with dramatic increase in type 2 diabetes.
