“Heart-on-a-Chip” may replace Drug Testing on Animals


Date: September 6th, 2016

Drug Testing Statistics

When a company decides to develop a new drug, they must be prepared to spend about five billion dollars to develop the medication. More than half of that money will be spent in the initial research and development of the medication. A large number of drugs are tested on animals before they are tested on humans because animal lives are not considered to be as valuable as human life.

With the development of an artificial human organ that would respond just like a living animal, or person, would respond, the drug companies could effectively test their medications without putting any lives at risk.
This type of testing would allow the drug companies to spend less money on their development of the drugs so medications could be priced lower for the consumer, and it would mean that no life was ever endangered during the testing phase. Drugs could be tested and approved a lot faster making the growth of the drug industry increase rapidly.

Uneven Sleep Patterns may make Teens Snack More


Date: September 2nd, 2016

Regularity of Sleep Counts More than Quantity of Sleep in Teens

Teens need to have a regularly established sleep pattern in order to minimize their snacking, and their propensity to gain abnormal amounts of weight.

The medical association recommends that teens get eight full hours of sleep each night. The majority of teens get less than seven hours of sleep each night. For many years, this lack of sleep has been a huge concern of educators, parents, and medical professionals, but the latest study shows that we should be more concerned with the regularity of sleeping the child does, instead of the quantity of sleep they get each night.
