According to the College of American Pathologists (CAP) 2013 data, approximately 80 percent of the world’s pathologists are based in the United States. This concentration causes an increased need to access, share, and diagnose images remotely.
Bella Lugosi is famously quoted as saying, “I vant to suck your blood.” Maybe he was ahead of his time along with the Twilight crew. Three new papers published a few weeks ago in Nature Medicine and Science show exciting implications on reversing aging in studies of blood exchanges between young and old mice. The studies found that infusing the blood of younger mice into older mice rejuvenated their muscles and brains. The opposite appears to hold true too – infusing blood from older mice into younger mice accelerated the aging process.
Well, it’s not really new. For decades researchers have been linking a lack of sleep, disturbed sleep, or a “night shift” schedule to various health conditions.

A new report released this week in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology Journal pulls together multiple studies that point toward the detrimental effects on health that come with a sleep starved population.
