"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

I'm back after a rushed, hectic mid-week trip to Miami. I may post later about the data we collected, because it's really interesting: we looked at health IT systems in a network of community health centers. All I'll say now is that if I lived in Miami, I would go to these centers for care before many doctors, even though I have insurance.
On to the news!

University of Texas researchers found that bed-restricted patients who got nutritional supplements (sports drinks with amino acids, carbs) suffered less muscle wasting than did controls. So if you're laid up, take your aminos!!

Another study demonstrates the safety of the MMR vaccine. It does not cause autism.
