Susan Lim: Transplant cells, not organs
We'll never become immortal the way we are now. Our cells have a structure that prescribes them to divide or produce and carry something and finally die. Become immortal in this sense would mean to stop the cell normal process of living - to stop the life itself. We'll then become robots with the only thing that will matter inside us - the information. It is a good question for everyone to think about - is this a life that you would like to have?

Eric Dishman: Health care should be a team sport
Thank you for your vision Eric. That is what we really have to concern about - our patients. All we do is for people, so it is rather strange why such problems still occur nowadays. Hopefully, the situation will finally change in a better way :)

Peter Attia: Is the obesity crisis hiding a bigger problem?
Rotem, I like your idea that whole food pyramid is wrong from its origin. The evidence to this is that depending on different food pyramids in different countries or continents chance of have diabetes varies as well as the percentage of people having diabetes. That is very important that we try to treat the problem from as many sides as we can. Only thus we can finally find the real treatment or even find a way to prevent diabetes completely.

Jack Andraka: A promising test for pancreatic cancer ... from a teenager
Great Jack! Go on this way! Also try to think of a way to make people go to the doctor at the very first symptoms and not when everything aches so dramatically that one cannot even walk himself. In most cases people just suffer in silence until everything is very very bad and serious. That is the side where we also have a lot of work and many years until people finally start thinking critically and carefully. Until then, early detection of cancer is wonderful, but may be inapplicable.

Eric Topol: The wireless future of medicine
Everything has two sides actually. From one side that is really great to have ability to monitor your current health condition without living your home, or being anywhere with your cell phone. And from another, such technology would really increase the number of people who try to treat themselves and think they know better what is wrong with them and how to treat that, than their doctor. It is easy to predict what happens to them in the most cases - their condition becomes so bad that even doctors already cannot help them. So, in any case, new technology and world of progress is good, unless you become a fan of self-treatment.
