Special Topics


We present the medical information below because it deals with little-reported or misunderstood medical and disease-related topics that could profoundly influence your life or the lives of those around you. Moreover, the information here is often learned "after-the-fact", when it is too late to be of benefit. By being aware, you may help keep yourself, a family member or a friend safe.
