On the other hand, the mandalas give a creative space to draw and appreciate the art from ancient cultures.

Urinary Tract Infections in Dogs with Kidney Disease

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is very common in dogs suffering from chronic kidney disease, but the shortcut method of diagnosing and treating it is often undertaken using a broad spectrum antibiotic. This can cause the infection to go completely untreated - and the delay in identifying the right antibiotic means the infection runs rampant, causing a further deterioration in the kidney disease itself. This article explores the cause of UTIs, and outlines the best method of diagnosing and treating them.

CDC Willing to Spend $806,000 on Cartoon (Instead of Zika Research)

Soon the leaders of the WHO, CDC, and Health Canada will be resigning. And I'm not surprised. The evidence they have been ignoring from the scientific community for over a year should be causing them great unrest. The public has only been told half-truths and have not been given all of the information you deserve. Now, in a move I deem as unacceptable as the WHO partnering with the IOC, the CDC is throwing almost a million dollars at PBS to produce just one episode about Zika for kids. Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, Zika is spreading unabated; a likely reservoir host (which could be amplifying the virus) is a pet, being played with by children.

An Open Letter to Dr. Margaret Chan, Director-General of WHO

It's infuriating to know that for a year, the WHO has known that Culex mosquitoes are vectors of the Zika virus. Even worse: a study by Guo et al. in September has been completely ignored. The citizens of southeast Asia should have been informed so that they could modify their mosquito eradication efforts. However, Dr. Margaret Chan has proclaimed her decisions to be right all along. She even wrote: "Like every other explosive outbreak, Zika revealed fault lines in the world's collective preparedness." But, rather than rely on scientific data, she even entertained conspiracies (like a chemical). Wolbachia is responsible for the most widespread pandemics in the animal kingdom (LePage and Bordenstein, 2013). Bill Gates and four governments are funding Wolbachia-infected mosquito releases and the WHO endorses it. We must find a way to stop more releases and allow independent researchers to investigate (before it's too late). Wolbachia can never be taken back.
