          An introduction to how the treatment of congenital heart disease can be viewed as an example of the complex mixture of technology, ethics, economics and science: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/the-heart-an-introduction A visual introduction to the anatomy of the heart will be presented, showing the type of defects that can affect the function of heart and a child’s quality of life, but which can be corrected by paediatric cardiac surgeons. It will demonstrate the basis of how we describe and categorise over 3000 defects that can occur and how these can affect the function of the heart and a child’s quality of life. Changing methods of diagnosis and treatment over the last half-century and important surgical advances will be demonstrated.

What is the root cause? What is the solution? If we are treating with the help of medicine, we know the outcome. We can treat the symptoms, but the disorder still exists. The only difference is that we do not feel the symptoms. Science has the ability, with the help of technology and machines, we can manipulate several things and make them to work for us, to help us, to make our life very easy.

                      New images have been found revealing amazing truths behind verses in the Quran that depict the embryonic development. The Quran is said to be the word of God ( Allah ) and such miraculous phenomena are used to authenticate this statement. The Quran claims that the embryo is a "Alaqah" which means either a blood clot, suspended or leech like structure. We put this statement to the test. "To see any detail in it as is described in the Qur'an, I need an instrument that wasn't developed until the 1700s" Dr. E Marshall Johnson
