  • Synesthesia - The Union of Sensations ( 3073 reads)   

    Synesthesia is not a disease or an illness. It cannot be acquired or learned from any sources. It is a naturally occurring unique neurological condition or a phenomenon or an anomaly in which the experience of one sensation has an involuntary and cognitive effect on the experience of another sensation through a specific sensory pathway. - Category: Others
  • Electronic Health (eHealth)- Characteristics, Tools & Programmes ( 2119 reads)   

    Electronic Health or eHealth is the term used to refer to the usage of information and communication technology (ICT) in the field of healthcare. The first use of eHealth dates back to at least 1999. - Category: Healthcare
  • Melamine - An Overview of its Toxicity ( 4191 reads)   

    Melamine cyanurate is the main cause for the toxicity of melamine. When melamine cyanurate is ingested through food or through contaminated plastic utensils, it is circulated throughout the body. Melamine cyanurate cannot be broken down by any cellular enzymes. Therefore, it remains static and unmetabolized inside the body. - Category: Toxicology
