Breaking the Waves
"Breaking the Waves" is a complex and disturbing look at what one woman would do for the sake of love, and how her desire to be her husband's salvation runs head-to-head with the moral tenants of her strict Christian upbringing. It is at once a religious allegory and an attack on Christian fundamentalism, wrapped up in art house pretension and grainy, hand-held camerawork. The first English-langua ... ...

The team is not entirely sure why the beads form, said UA neuroscientist Linda L. Restifo, who leads the investigation. However, the team believes that further investigation of the beads will help inform why some people experience cognitive declines while taking statins.
