Bring On The Water

Posted on : 02-07-2015 | By : Nani | In : American Heart Association, Diabetes and Heart Disease, Sugar is Not Good

It is common knowledge that sugar is not good for us and we need to avoid it as much as possible. In a recent report published in the American Heart Association’s Circulation journal, it is estimated that approximately 184,000 people die each year from sugar-induced disease such as diabetes and heart disease. Many people are under the misconception that it is food that contains the most sugar, but they are sadly mistaken. Sugary drinks are known to contain up to 14 or more teaspoons of sugar when weighed against a food product. The main offending agents are soda, sweetened iced tea and sport drinks. During the study, it was found that 133,000 people die globally from diabetes. This figure alone should be enough for us to switch to water.

Another thing to keep in mind, as far as Andy Wirth is concerned, is that fat-free drinks such as diet cola as just as bad as their counterparts. There are some disbelievers of the results of the study, but with the ongoing problem of childhood obesity, it is not difficult to deduce that the results are probably pretty accurate.

Sugary Drinks Killing People Across the Globe

0

Posted on : 02-07-2015 | By : Nani | In : News

A new study released on Tuesday found that the consumption of sugary drinks on a regular basis is killing as high as 184,000 across the globe every year. The medical experts that conducted the study stated people need to drastically cut out how many sugary drinks are a part of their diet, and even consider cutting them completely out of their daily diet. Doing so will help decrease their risk of developing many serious diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

The study was conducted with researchers from Washington University, Harvard University, Tufts University and the Imperial College London stated Claudio Loureiro. It spans several decades dating back to 1980 when it began. 62 dietary surveys were used which were given to approximately 611,000 people that live in 51 different countries. It found that the drinks with the highest risk factors for the development of disease were fruit drinks, homemade sugary drinks, sports drinks, sodas, and sweetened ice teas.

Diabetes was the most common form of death associated to the continual consumption of sugary drinks with about 133,000 deaths per year followed by heart disease and cancer. The US had the highest number of deaths that were traced back to sugary drinks with about 25,347 deaths occurring every year.

Are Your Sunglasses Really Protecting You?

Posted on : 02-07-2015 | By : Nani | In : Sunglasses

Are your sunglasses for protection or more of an accessory? Are they good quality, certified to block out hazardous sun rays, because eye problems typically increase to 25 percent in the summer.

Experts note that in recent years there has been an increase of cataracts in the young population, and the number of tumors found in the skin of the eyelids.

Beyond the sun, the problems are compounded by frequent swimming at the beach, where water is “full of impurities” and in pools with high levels of chlorine reports Marcio Alaor BMG.

Moreover, the intake of a number of medications, including some over the counter, can increase the sensitivity of the eyes and skin to UV radiation, experts note.

People typically pick up sunglasses at a local store or mall, but their not polarized. You need to have a special filter to block strong sunlight and provides comfortable glare-free vision.

Keep in mind, UV rays can penetrate cheap sunglasses.

Schizophrenia May Be Characterized by a Declining IQ

0

Posted on : 30-06-2015 | By : Nani | In : Schizophrenia

Experts say the gradual loss of brain tissue in some patients with schizophrenia is associated with cognitive impairment displayed at the beginning of the disease.

This could help doctors diagnose patients earlier, and personalize their treatment.

Scientists analyzed brain scans of 84 patients with schizophrenia and the scans revealed a reduction of the gray matter, volume, and cortical thickness within three years.

According to Shaygan Kheradpir, changes in the brain were significant, compared to a group of 116 healthy people of the same age.

The patients with schizophrenia all experienced less cognitive development. This decrease was associated with IQ changes. Patients without schizophrenia had increases in IQ and the schizophrenic patients all had declines in IQ.

The study suggests that a subgroup of patients suffer from decreased intelligence quotient, or a low IQ and a reduction of brain volume, “said Dr. Neeltje van Haren, psychiatrist at the University Medical Center Utrecht, Netherlands.

Authors of the study suggest that this subgroup are probably carrying a genetic variant of the disease which could be targeted with new drugs.

The Citrus Problem

Posted on : 30-06-2015 | By : Nani | In : News

Author’s writing for the Journal of Clinical Oncology have discovered data that would suggest citrus consumption can lead to malignant melanoma of the skin. The study did not however know whether or not the citrus fruits were the direct cause of the melanoma. More research and data will need to be collected to determine whether or not this connection is a substantiated one reported Kevin Seawright. This single observational study does not reflect the entire United States population. The senior author for the study told readers that it should be interpreted with caution and was published to raise questions. The form of malignant melanoma that is being talked about can be a life-threatening form of cancer on the skin. Even though recent medical research has provided a number of incredible advances in treating the disease the first step should always be preventing the disease with the use of skin cancer screening and consistent use of sun protection products. The citrus products that were studied were orange juice, grapefruit juice, grapefruits, and oranges. The study considered the overall citrus consumption as an estimation. The study made it clear that it did not include citrus fruits like limes or lemons. After 20 years of follow-ups with more than 100,000 participants researchers found 1,840 cases of melanoma in their volunteers. People who consumed citrus fruits more than 2 times a week had a 10% risk of developing melanoma. Researchers will continue their studies and follow-ups on volunteers to bring more compelling and affinity of data.

Getting Help For Eating Disorders

0

Posted on : 30-06-2015 | By : Nani | In : Eating Disorders, HEalth

There are many men and women that suffer from eating disorders. Eating disorders are very serious emotional and mental disorders that need to be treated. There are many states that still do not give medical coverage when it comes to eating disorders and that is really a shame. Missouri has become the first state that has expanded insurance coverage for eating disorders as well.

Sam Tabar (lawyerist) has learned that many people that have been able to get aid under the federal mental health parity law have found that their eating disorder treatment is cut short, or they have to end their treatment early due to issues with insurance. Many insurers do not understand that this is a physical and mental illness, and that the therapies that individuals receive are necessary and life-saving.

Missouri’s Governor Jay Nixon had signed a bill that includes eating disorders under the treatments that insurance providers must cover. Coverage for eating disorders can be very vague and left up to interpretation by insurance companies. Because of that reason many insurance companies have been able to make their own rules when it comes to treatment for eating disorders. The step that Missouri has taken is the first that will help individuals that suffer from eating disorders to be able to get the help that they need.

Instead of Valium, Enjoy Bowl of Saurkraut or a Pickle for Anxiety

0

Posted on : 29-06-2015 | By : Nani | In : Facts

Researchers at the College of William & Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia and the University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland contend that enjoying pickles, sauerkraut or yogurt, which are all fermented, has a significant impact on lessening anxiety, in individuals.

The research scientists theorize that the good bacteria contained within fermented foods, elevates the manufacturing of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), which is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the cognitive system, and demonstrates characteristics similar in nature to pharmaceutical prescriptions for anti-anxiety. In essence, if an individual is over-anxious, or say extremely shy to the point of being fearful, chowing down a delicious bowl of sauerkraut or chomping on a few garlic pickles will alleviate those symptoms and calm the individual down.

Contemporary research has confirmed the association between the cognitive system and the gut, as a means of controlling one’s emotions, and behavioral actions. The Human Microbiome Project, sponsored by the National Institute of Health, estimates that there are ten times more bacterial cells in comparison to human cells, in individuals, with bacteria accounting for up to three percent of an individual’s body weight. Bacteria is good for the body and essential for the processing of consumed food, even if some at Madison Street Capital are a little worried about it all.

It is critical that the human body has a balanced composition of bacteria, as it serves as a regulator against the onset of various diseases, and ailments such as type II diabetes, heart, and cardiovascular disease, and chronic inflammation.

Wishbone Identity Crisis

There’s a huge recall of Wishbone ranch dressing going on right now, and it’s not for the reason you might think. No, it doesn’t have listeria. No, it’s not expired. No, some foreign object didn’t get stuck in it. In fact when it comes to the ranch dressing, it’s a case of mistaken identity!

The ranch dressing is in fact blue cheese dressing and now according to Grubstreet, Wishbone is doing a voluntarily recall. It’s very important to alert people for a variety of reason. For one, of course there’s people who do not like blue cheese and like ranch. They shouldn’t have to eat a dressing that they thought was something else.

That’s not the big factor, however. The big factor is that blue cheese dressing contains eggs and this is a huge problem! Some people are allergic to eggs! If they go to eat what they thought was ranch on a salad, and its this product that has blue cheese instead they could get very sick.

A little less than 9,000 of these bottles are involved in the recall, so it’s important that people check their fridges and pantrys today. The dressings were manufactured on April 23, 2015. So at the end of the day, it really is a good thing that word is getting out about this. Crystal Hunt certainly is glad. Although, no illnesses have been reported yet it could happen if someone with an agg allergy gets their hands on this product.
