The Lung Institute Tackles Common Lung Diseases

The Lung Institute treats a very diverse group of patients suffering from respiratory problems. Chronic lung conditions may affect anybody from any socioeconomic background. Everybody deserves a chance to improve their quality of life so they can get back to living their lives.

Patients are treated with specialized care at the institute. The specialists will carefully examine the patients’ medical histories to the correct treatment path. With the latest technology and a well thought out plan, patients will no longer have to suffer.

Stem cell research is at the base of the Lung Institute. The stem cells are extracted from the patients’ bone marrow or blood. The cells are then reformulated and reintroduced into the body to increase the rate of recovery. It is currently the best method to reduce inflammation and speed up recovery.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a primary culprit found in this area of medicine. The disease can be mild to severe, but it is always enough to hinder your life. Airflow is restricted to the lungs so it is hard to breathe. This sort of disease may also be treated with stem cells.

Sufferers of such diseases always have trouble walking due to the low amount of oxygen in the body. It will also make the body weak against other common illnesses. The heart may eventually become enlarged and an early death is inevitable. Smoking, pollution or other environmental factors may cause this disease. The Lung Institute is developing methods to make COPD a livable disease. See, lunginstitute.com.

Jack Coleman from the institute had represented the company at a medical convention in

Padua, Italy last year. The company had gained notoriety amongst other stem cell researchers for their impressive treatment plans. He had also convinced many how the current system of science is hindering the growth of stem cell treatment adoption.

Stem cells are reforming the medical industry and may even eliminate the need for traditional treatments. The current medical industry favors expensive, slow and ineffective solutions for simple diseases. The point of giving the presentation was to help reform the current industry to help other research groups like the Lung Institute. Check out the Lung Institute’s Facebook page for more info.

Some Simple Suggestion As To How To Out Invest Warren Buffett

Timothy Armour, the Chairman of Capital Group, thinks that Warren Buffett is wrong. Wrong about active versus passive investments at any rate. Recently, Mr. Buffett wagered one million dollars (for charity) that a Standard and Poors 500 passive index fund would get better investment returns than hedge funds over a discrete period of time.

Mr. Armour maintains that with proper research investors can actually earn a greater return from an active fund. The key is finding a fund with an active manager who makes good long term investments, has high fund ownership but with very low fees passed on to the investor. He maintains that such funds can be found at Capital Group.

Mr. Armour has been Chairman of Capital Group since July 2015. Capital Group is the parent company of American Funds amongst other investment entities. He joined the company immediately after he graduated from Middlebury College with a bachelors degree in economics and has been there ever since gaining vast industry experience along the way. Amongst the positions he has held are equity portfolio manager and equity investment analyst.

There are times when the market self corrects which is what Mr. Armour believes occurred in the market selloff in September 2015. More specifically, he believes it was triggered by a slowing growth in China but that it is healthy as it removes “pockets of excess.” Bottom line Mr. Armour recommends investor due diligence and, of course, believes that Capital Goup will stand up to such scrutiny.
