Datebook: November 14 – Father of Modern Histology and Pathology Turns 240

leave a comment »

Marie François Xavier Bichat was born on November 14, 1771 (and died July 22, 1802). He was a French anatomist and physiologist best remembered as the father of modern histology and pathology. Despite the fact that he worked without a microscope he was able to advance greatly the understanding of the human body. He was the first to introduce the notion of tissues as distinct entities. He maintained that diseases attacked tissues rather than whole organs. Bichat died at the age of 31 from a fever following an unexplained fall down a set of stairs.

Around two-thirds of Americans are overweight, and some say we need to talk about it.

NPR reports that often when the issue of weight is brought up medically, both doctors and patients want to avoid talking about the elephant in the room.
