Polyurethane foam, long used in products such as bedding, furniture and insulation to make people more comfortable, someday also may save lives. Eight Johns Hopkins University biomedical engineering students have devised a tool that may stop profuse bleeding by injecting the foam into those wounded on the battlefield. As a class project, the students chose to tackle the problem of hemorrhaging, the top cause of death for service members in war. Existing devices - tourniquets and medicated bandages - can be unusable or ineffective in wounds to the neck or where limbs meet the torso.

I want to thank you for the "sugar cure" column. I had a toe amputated more than a year ago and it still is not healed. I read your column about using sugar for wound healing and asked the doctor about it. She said: "Nothing else is helping, so go for it. It couldn't hurt." I mixed the sugar into Polysporin and applied it on a Friday afternoon, and by Monday afternoon the improvement was very noticeable. At my next appointment, the doctor was very impressed. We first found this old-fashioned approach in medical literature two decades ago (Southern Medical Journal, November 1981)
