    in Health

    An In-Depth discussion with Sigrid Fry-Revere, founder and CEO of Stop Organ Trafficking Now! This 501c non-profit, non-partisan agency is dedicated to removing barriers to living organ donation by communicating relevant scholarly research to Congress. SOTN! is lobbying Congress, to support living donors by removing financial disincentives that form often insurmountable barriers to Americans who wish to donate organs. Besides huge savings for Medicare, the proposed legislation could close the staggering kidney supply and demand gap, improve the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of Americans waiting for a kidney, strengthen the penalties for illegal organ trafficking, and help decrease exploitation in developing countries.


    The efforts of Sigrid and her organization will have a great impact it donations of organs for those with kidney failur.


    Dialysis Advocates highly supports their efforts.

    #40: Everything You Wanted to Know about Donor Conception with Alice Ruby

    in Moms and Family

    As lesbians, the way we conceive, typically, is through donor conception, and donor conception is whole new paradigm for most of us.  There are many intricacies, details and lots of new information to learn. How do sperm banks work?  How selective are they with the guys that may be the future biological father of your child? What kind of background study do they do on these guys? How extensively do they test for disease or genetic conditions? How many biological siblings might your child have out in the world?  How do they handle future contact with the donor? How do you talk to your child about donor conception? What are the chances your child is going to want to contact their donor?  Alice Ruby, executive director The Sperm Bank of California (TSBC) is on the show to answer these questions and more.  TSBC was the first sperm bank in the country to serve lesbians and other unmarried women.  As the only non-profit sperm bank in the country, TSBC does immense amounts of research the outcomes and implications of donor conception for parents, donor-conceived individuals, and donors. TSBC offers tons of resources on their site for lesbian parents looking to conceive.  Find out why TSBC may be a great option for your choice in sperm banks.

    2-25-15- Dr. Hildy®- Nano BioSensors: Nasal, Organ, Biological Monitoring

    in Health

    Wednesday, February 25, 2015
    1:00-3:00PM Pacific (2-4pm Mountain; 3-5pm Central, 4-6pm Eastern)


    Nano BioSensors: Nasal, Organ and Biological Systems Monitoring


    In the 1966 film Fantastic Voyage, a group of scientists board a submarine and are shrunk down to a microscopic size in order to enter the bloodstream of a diplomat and save their life from a bloodclot. While this remains an idea of science fiction, we are forever moving closer to a time when fantastic ideas such as these come to fruition - though not in a way we expected.


    This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy will discuss the concept of using nanotechnology as bio-sensors, and the benefits and dangers of their use.


    Imagine your body as a highly complex machine - the most complex ever created. Through natural processes, this machine runs itself. When your body temperature drops, you feel cold. If you lack iron, you may crave red meat or another source from which you are used to getting it. But these processes are automatic and uncontrollable. You can’t tell if you’re getting enough iron until you’re not.


    Now imagine if you had a method of constantly monitoring your body’s processes - like the real-time fuel consumption in your vehicle. Using a fairly simple equation, your car knows the rate of fuel it’s burning and approximately when it will run out of gas. What if you knew that you that you were lacking iron before your body even did? This is just one possibility of the use of nano bio-sensors.

    BODY SNATCHERS: Organ Harvesting Of African Americans Going On Under The Radar

    in Politics

    Modern-day body snatchers provide bones, tendons and body parts other than transplantable organs to tissue banks, research facilities and other buyers. What they get paid: $600 for a brain, as much as $850 for an elbow, up to $850 for a hand, according to an analysis of market prices for fresh or frozen body parts used for research and education that was conducted by Annie Cheney, author of Body Brokers: Inside America’s Underground Trade in Human Remains.Henrietta Lacks as was an African American woman who went to Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1951 because of a painful knot in her stomach and abnormal bleeding after giving birth to her fifth child. She was diagnosed with cancer and two parts of her cervix were removed (the healthy part and the cancerous part) without her permission. The doctors discovered that Lacks cells kept alive and grew. Her cells were named HeLa and for over six decades, they have been used more 74,000 studies. HeLa were the first human cells to be successfully cloned.The conspiracy theory of blacks being murdered for organs is now being linked to the string of murders that happened in Atlanta during the late 1970s to the early 1980s. It’s known as the Atlanta Child Murders. 28 young victims, who were mostly African American males, were murdered from 1979 to 1981. Wayne Williams was arrested on June 21, 1981 for the deaths of two 22 years old victims. He was indicted on first degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. Some believe he was forced into confessing.


     


    In 2008, a former New Jersey dentist  Michael Mastromarino was sentenced to 18-54 years in prison after he made millions from selling human organs and tissue. According to reports, he secretly robbed thousands of corpses from funeral homes in New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia. He never screened the parts for disease.
