The Conservative Party of Canada supports a 3 year prohibition on embryonic stem cell research.

They claim adult stems cells are more promising, so let's look at their claims.

The Ford Government has already cut funding for stem cell research.

"Scientist working on treatment of premature babies calls move 'extremely short-sighted and uninformed'"…
What are embryonic stem cells?
"Embryonic stem cells exist only at the earliest stages of embryonic development and are capable of making any cell type in the body."

Regarding the #ESCCongress reaction on #DAPAHF I share the enthusiasm of most. For this very reason I made this thread which I hope will raise the curiosity of others.

It shows some shared pathways of medication and #Lifestyle that are obviously not mutually exclusive. (1/4)
Both Pathways ⬆️ Ketones
During #heartfailure mitochondrial oxidative metabolism is compromised and 3-OHB) is ⬆️ In HF pts Ketone bodies appear to be a more efficient alternative fuel and myocardial ketone oxidation as a key metabolic adaptation in the failing human heart. (2/4)
I honestly would not be surprised at all if in a near future we start using Exogenous Ketones, Esters, Salts and even MCT oil as a possible economical therapeutic approach. (3/4)

Ex. Think about #Alzheimer Type III DM & how patients can improve dramatically w diet change.

Hey #cardiotwitter, here’s a thread on my latest publication “Endothelial dysfunction and cellular repair in #HFpEF: response to a maximal #exercise bout” in #EJHF @ESC_Journals @mross013 @AnastasiaSMihai @DrWillWatson @GiuseppeGalati_ @rudolf_deboer…
I’ve previously presented parts of this at #EuroPrevent 2018 YIA session and @KeystoneSymp so you can stop here if you attended 😉 #EAPC @SilCastelletti @FlavioDascenzi @merrylindseyphd @mmamas1973 @HH4EHRA @lamcardio @rladeiraslopes @verocornelissen @paolo_emilio @m_piepoli
This is the first time I do this so feedback is very much appreciated! Let’s structure this as follows:
-What did we investigate?
-What were the results?
-Why is this important?

'The government applied that label to people like Osama bin Laden & other Islamic jihadists. But now the Obama administration has removed all references to Islam from terror training materials, & instead the term “terrorist” is being applied to large groups of American citizens.'

"Is gang stalking prohibited under law? Yes, it may not be spelled out as "gang stalking" per se but the methods and tactics perpetrators use against their victims or targets is not allowed by law."

Once the government is committed to the principal of silencing opposition it has only one way to go & that is down th path of increasingly repressive measures until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens & creates a country whr all live in fear

Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction #HFPEF Tweetorial! Once thought as just diastolic dysfunction, it is much more than that!
(picture credit @Medcomic) #HeartFailure #CardioEd
Why have we drawn a cut-off of 50% for rEF vs pEF? Well, this relates to older studies which showed that the risk of symptomatic heart failure increased significantly when your EF was less than 50%.…
But is that still a relevant cut-off? Those with EF between 50 and 55% still have increased risk – and indeed EF has shown to correlate continuously with risk.

6️⃣ Devices
7️⃣ Advanced Tx
8️⃣ Misc
Resources: @HFSA @ishlt @AHAScience @JACCJournals @HRSonline
1️⃣ Non-pharmacological therapies for HF:
➖Cardiac rehabilitation can improve functional capacity, exercise duration & mortality
➖Diet: Low Na (2-3 g/day) diet to reduce congestive symptoms
➖Biomarkers have an important role in diagnosis and prognosis of patients with HF
2️⃣ Acute Heart Failure Treatment agenda:
➖ Stabilize condition based on hemodynamics profile
➖ Establish dx, etiology and precipitating factor
➖ Initiate therapy for symptom relief
➖ Preload/afterload reduction
➖ Inhibition of neurohormonal activation for long term mgmt
