Abstract: Similarities between past Mass Psychogenic Disease events and mass behavior during the Covid-19 pandemic are compared. Isolation of mass populations in typically dense urban areas are examined as an unusually condition that could form initial stimulation for MPD. Psychological factors like uncertainty, confused political discourse, blaming of subgroups and minorities as well as rival political or religious groups could also be motivations.

Abstract: In this brief note, we stand out a possible application of the historical anthropology notion of assimilation to history, with a particular attention to some decolonization aspects and other socio-anthropological phenomena.

Abstract: The "osteological paradox" has seemingly been utilized as a mechanism to permit promulgation of speculations, compromising their testing and falsification. Such repetition of consensus-based opinions has achieved the status of almost religiously-observed mythologies. The "osteological paradox" would seem to offer an argument to denigrate evidence-based studies - if that speculation, and it is only unsubstantiated speculation, actually had evidential support.

Abstract: In the process of biological evolution, our ancestors have faced many environmental challenges and the genomes of the present-day humans are storages of environmentally adapted genetic entities in the form of functional genes. To this respect, NAT2 a drug metabolizing gene plays a vital role in differential metabolization rate due to genomic changes that result in changed amino acids.

Abstract: The overwhelming increase in the prevalence of obesity worldwide and especially within the Caribbean among all age groups has result in an urgent need to find solutions to this fast growing global epidemic. Obesity is a known risk factor for developing chronic non-communicable diseases. It predisposes to a gradual increase in morbidity and mortality throughout the world
