    I think Japan and USA are isolated and cornered

    Do not worry, when US and Japan are combined, they are producing more than 1/3 world GDP.

    No. Stay put. I remember how European countries rushed into Euro currency at beginning. Now it is a mess.

    The U.S. has expressed concern the new bank will allow looser lending standards for the environment, labor rights and financial transparency, undercutting the World Bank,

    This sounds trouble already to me. Shadow banking practice by China may bring China down, you know.

    Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) often offers the only possibility of a cure for blood diseases and rare cancers like myeloma or leukaemia

    A friend of mine passed away last year after 3 HSCT attempts by University of Colorado Cancer Center. We need to invest more to find a cure of cancer.

    Nanotechnology also will change a cancer treatment. This is very promising. This is a bang innovation in medicine.

    That being said, BMI is a very unreliable method for judging health and weight, especially considering that muscle raises your BMI, too.

    Sure. This is just a general bench mark to stay healthy. There is a solid link between Obesity to cancer.

    This is where US government is doing very poor. Our government needs to educate Americans a benefit of healthy living with less sugar and salt consumption. We do not find any fruit or vegitable juice less than 30 gm of sugar. So unhealthy.

    sugary drinks that is most detrimental to health

    Right on. Let me add fruit juice and smoothie to your list. They are bad as well. They fooled me until I became diabetic. It is very important to maintain optimal bmi level at 25 to stay healthy. Eat variety of fruits and vegitable and stay away from junk food.

    The finding could be important in treating metastatic cancer, which spreads to different tissues.

    Yey, with immunology and target therapies, we may be able to win a fight against metastatic cancer. ”We will win.

    Panasonic is not coming up with a bang innovation as well as Sony lately. They are a big loser.

    I believe that Panasonic is wasting the R&D resources for non essential products. This is not what we need. They need to focus on medical industry as global population is expanding very rapidly. That's where the market is. Toshiba and Hitachi are vert aggressuve in this area. I am convincjed that I did okay to dump Sony and Panasonic stocks long time ago. Pathetic.

    Because of the same reason, the Hormone Replacement Therapy has been widely discouraged and discontinued in US since about 20 years ago. No surprose here.

    I am falling into a hall (medical treatment difference) as well between US and Japan. My Japanese MD/Professor does not understand a critical role of vitamine D in cancer treatment. Very frustrating.

    And the report called for a new name to replace the “chronic fatigue

    Often times, MD disregards the chronic fatigue, and is blaming our heads. Do we remember that It took many years for Pain Clinic to be profesionally recognized? We need to establish Fatigue Clinic as well. Pain and Fatigue can tell underlying medical issues if used with CT, MRI, Echograms properly. Fatigue is an early warning of cancer.

    Poor innovation, and I am fully disappointed in engineering team of Sony.
    I do not know if everyone in Sony understands that Walkman was not Sony's innovation. Sony reused a scrapped/expired US patent and started manufacturing Walkman that became a bang product before Apple.

    I am sorry Sony is wasting their resources for non essential products like this.What they need to do is a bang innovation for medical devices in global economy. Hitachi and Toshiba are doing great in medical equipment business.

    The lack of knowledge in Japan when it comes to trans-fat is astounding.

    You may want to tell Japanese trans-fat chemical componets are similar to plastic. This message will get through them very quickly how bad it is. In US, many health conciencious consumers are switching back to butter from margarine for toast.

    For cooking, I use sesame oil, canola oil or olive oil.

    Olive oil should not be used for high heat cooking such as stir frying. Olive oil is healthy only in low temperature like a salad dressing. Otherwise it may become a cancer causing agent.

    Great! Way to go!!

    As I have noted previously, Japan needs to get out of box for innovation.

    Iphone has been in use for 30 days heart monitoring for diagnostic purpose. Patients are given monitoring devices with iphone, they can go anywhere in US while transmitting cardiac beats, 02 saturations and body temperatures.
    This is very cost effective and accurate. This is not available in Japan.

    You guys need a bang innovation for survival in global economy. Be creative and be a risk taker. Engineers and Scientists need to work with medical industry.

    Heavy Carbon Iron Therapy and Nanotechnology in Cancer Treatment

    Global Medicine needs to make Heavy Carbon Iron Therapy to everyone in the world. Japan has 5 facilities whle US has none.

    Hopefully, Colorado is ready to bring this therapy from Japan within 2 years. This is much better and most effective cancer treatment than Gamma, Cyberknife, Proton Therapy.

    Also we need to agressively investment in Nanotechnology for cancer treatment that is very promising.

    United will also expand its North America premium-cabin meal service to include flights of at least 800 miles – or as short as two hours and 20 minutes – increasing the number of flights on which customers may enjoy meals.

    UA is well known for bad meals. I never eat their meals during flights. Please start using Subways, McDonalds, KFC, Pizza who know what to do. UA Coffee used to be okay, now it is getting bad. Just helpless, please do not try..

    The U.S. healthcare market is $3 trillion, and researcher IDC Health Insights predicts that 70% of healthcare organizations worldwide will invest by 2018 in technology including apps, wearables, remote monitoring and virtual care

    Japan needs to admit the healthf care investment is far behind. 10 years behind?

    This concept has been already practiced in US health care industry. Patients are given 30 days heart monitoring devices with iphone (sumsong) that transmit heart beats for 30 days from everywhere in US. This system is not available in Japan.

    I am from one of 50 Best US Hospitals. The monitoring is done by two systems: nursing center on each floor and main center in basement with alarms to avoid errors.

    I hope Japan Company realizes that medical innovation is a key to success for the next decades. We need a low dose CT scan and PET scan.
