Whether you believe in global warming or not one thing is for sure: fungi, bacteria and viruses that were frozen in the Ice Age are starting to thaw out at both of the polar ice caps and previously tundra areas. The question is, are they still active, will they come back to life and spread diseases we no longer have immunity for? This week in our Clinical Text we look at how this same concept may explain how TIDM occurs. Be sure to read about “missing heritability.”
And while we are talking about heritability be sure to review how PCOS could be hereditarily related and how our own Medical Editor, Joy Pape, made sure that what was in the past helped a young lady take care of the present.
