Our understanding of autism continues to develop. What were once thought of as multiple conditions are today seen as different subtypes of what has become known as autism spectrum disorder, or ASD. These conditions range from mild to severe, and individuals with autism have a very wide range of strengths and challenges. Some may require assistance with daily living activities for their entire lives, while others may be able to live entirely independently.

The human body is a marvelous thing. It contains nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, organs, all of which go into making up "us". However, the body must have a way of protecting itself from invaders – viruses and bacteria, primarily, but also other potentially dangerous pathogens. This job falls to the body’s immune system.

Inflammation – most of us are familiar with it. When you twist your ankle and it swells up, making it difficult and painful to move, that’s inflammation. When a cut on your finger becomes infected and it swells and gets hot, that’s inflammation. There are thousands of other examples. Inflammation is part and parcel of life, and in many instances, it is a good thing that defends us against illnesses.

Once upon a time, smoking was socially acceptable. More – it was recommended by just about every medical professional in the US. Times have changed, though. Today, we recognize that smoking (and any other form of tobacco use) is incredibly harmful to the body. Not only that, but we have realized that nicotine, the active drug in tobacco, is highly addictive. Some experts estimate that nicotine is even more addictive than drugs like heroin or cocaine.

A number of progressive neurological disorders can affect individuals. Two prominent examples are Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s disease. Both are markedly different from one another, but they both affect the function of the brain. Another disease that does this is amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. You might be more familiar with it as Lou Gehrig disease. Discovered in 1969, ALS becomes worse over time, eventually robbing patients of their ability to use their muscles and move the body.

Addiction has been around as long as human beings, in one form or another. In fact, today’s addictions look remarkably like those of our past – alcohol, opioids, even behaviors like gambling are addictive. Until this point, addicts (those addicted to substances or behaviors) had little hope beyond sheer willpower, detoxification, and a handful of medications. Today, that is changing thanks in part to stem cell research.

Menopause is a natural process – it marks the end of a woman’s fertile, child-bearing years. Thankfully, for most women, this change does not come until around the age of 51. Of course, it does not occur at the same age for all women. Some women go through menopause during their 40s – this is called early menopause. For some women, it can happen even earlier. Whether this is natural, or is induced, it is called premature menopause.

Humans are a vision-oriented species. Yes, we possess five full senses, but our eyes are the most important of our sensory organs. In fact, a major percentage of our brains is allocated to processing information from our eyes. Macular degeneration is the name given to the usually slow loss of vision that affects us as we age. According to the American Optometric Association,

“Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over age 50. The CDC estimates that 1.8 million people have AMD and another 7.3 million are at a substantial risk for vision loss from AMD.”
