Welcome to Ed's Pathology Notes, placed here originally for the convenience of medical students at my school.You need to check the accuracy of any information, from any source, against other credible sources.Some people report themselves to be happier than others, and this tends to stay constant over time.Contrary to what you've been told (by "liberals" or "conservatives"), there's little-or-no correlation with age, race, economic class, or educational level. Explain briefly what makes neuropathology more difficult than the pathology of other organ systems.Sometimes the independent thinkers prove to be correct, and paradigms shift as a result.You also know that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.I am a mainstream Christian, a man of science, and a proponent of common sense and common kindness.I am an outspoken enemy of all the make-believe and bunk that interfere with peoples' health, reasonable freedom, and happiness. Throughout these notes, I am speaking only for myself, and not for any employer, organization, or associate. D., who wrote me encouragement when we were both beginning our unusual medical careers.
However, you have brains, and it is worth a lot of bother to be able to think properly." * Jung accused Freud of "regarding the brain an appendage of the sexual organs." Be this as it may, our brains are what tells us "happy" or "not happy".No medical student should be without access to this wonderful resource.Public Database of Human Cancers -- World Health Organization Stanford Surgical Pathology Criteria -- probably the best resource for the practicing surgical pathologist in an increasingly difficult specialty Medscape Pathology -- mostly clinical medicine, the best "daily news" of the medical world Pathology Resident Wiki Human Pathlogy -- growing resource Surgical Pathology Atlas -- lots of photos Pathology Education Instructional Resource -- U.Alternative (complementary) medicine has made real progress since my generally-unfavorable 1983 review.If you are interested in complementary medicine, then I would urge you to visit my new Alternative Medicine page.I cannot diagnose or treat over the web, I cannot comment on the health care you have already received, and these notes cannot substitute for your own doctor's care. Sometimes I get backlogged, sometimes my E-mail crashes, and sometimes my literature search software crashes.I am good at helping people find resources and answers. I am active in Health Tap, which provides free medical guidance from your cell phone. If you've not heard from me in a week, post me again.Special thanks to my friend and colleague, Charles Wheeler M. If you're a private individual who's enjoyed this site, and want to say, "Thank you, Ed!", then what I'd like best is a contribution to the Episcopalian home for abandoned, neglected, and abused kids in Nevada: I've spent time there and they are good. My home page More of my notes My medical students Especially if you're looking for information on a disease with a name that you know, here are a couple of great places for you to go right now and use Medline, which will allow you to find every relevant current scientific publication.If you ask me about something like this, I will simply invite you to do some tests yourself, perhaps as a high-school science project. Perhaps it'll be you who makes the next great discovery!Our world is full of people who have found peace, fulfillment, and friendship by suspending their own reasoning and simply accepting a single authority that seems wise and good.
