Science! Progress on Arthritis Treatment

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty jazzed about this: apparently researchers are looking into microvesicles as an option for arthritis treatment. I’ve already resigned myself to the fact that I will develop osteoarthritis when I get older, and it’s nice to know someone out there is looking for possible, non invasive treatments.

Essentially these microvesicles were regarded as junk before, but it was discovered this “cell dust” actually triggers the body’s repair mechanisms to promote regeneration of cartilage inside the joint.

Anyway, check it out, and have a great day everyone!
