One consequence of glaucoma is vision loss or blindness. It is estimated that leafy green vegetables like kale, broccoli and other vegetables are full of minerals and vitamins that prevent diseases like diabetes and heart disease. The question the author wants to answer is whether these leafy vegetables can help in preventing glaucoma. The conclusion of the author is that there is a link between leafy green vegetables and prevention of glaucoma. In fact, it can help prevent the disease. This conclusion was based on a recent study that was conducted by researchers at the Harvard Medical school. Glaucoma is a eye disease that can affect one’s vision leading to vision loss progressively. The common glaucoma is primary open-angle glaucoma. It leads to vision loss without any symptoms or sign. It is estimated that three million Americans are affected with glaucoma and 120,000 people will lose their sight due to having glaucoma. But why is glaucoma produced? This is due to an imbalance in the drainage of the aqueous humor. The researchers analyzed people’s diet and came to the conclusion that leafy green vegetables should be used as a treatment option.

Key Takeaways:

  • Eating more green, leafy vegetables can assist in decreasing the risk of developing glaucoma.
  • A key to why these vegetables are effective is that they help with blood flow near the optic nerve.
  • These vegetables also help with lowering other diseases like those that affect the heart and diabetes.

"The study was published in the Journal of American Medical Association Ophthalmology, and it was conducted by researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School."

Vitamin D is so important researchers worry about ethics of limiting supplementation to perform research trials

In order to effectively study vitamin defriciencies, many pharmaceutical agencies hold controlled studies that are overlooked by medical physicians. These are typically done by giving some participants the vitamin supplement, while others get a placebo. In the case of vitamin D, however, experts are labeling studies to be unethical because of the potential damage that participants could face if they become deficient while on the placebo due to their vitamin D levels dramatically dropping to an unsafe level.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many researchers view Vitamin D as so important to overall health that they are concerned about the ethics around limiting D supplementation specifically for research.
  • According to Dr. Leigh Frame of George Washington University School of Medicine, denying someone deficient in vitamin D could cause both long- and short-term health problems.
  • One solution to this dilemma would be to allow vitamin D studies but to monitor all participant’s D levels and provide the placebo group a rescue repletion at the completion of the study.

"In case you needed any more proof of how essential vitamin D is to good health, researchers have warned that placebo-controlled trials that involve limiting some people’s intake of the all-star nutrient could be considered unethical."

Most of us learned about photosynthesis in school or at least have heard of it. It talks about plants using carbon dioxide to make oxygen. It's not as simple as that, though. Plants do this but that's not all they do. They make other things out of the carbon dioxide as well which help the environment and which also serve other purposes. Plants are even more useful than we first thought. Some of the molecules they make are medicinal.

Subject: How to Get Rid of Lice: 8 Natural Remedies





There are three types of lice, head lice that develops on the scalp portion and neck, then there is body lice that lives on bedding and clothing and will get on the persons body to feed, generally happens if the person has poor hygiene, the last type of lice is pubic lice, and this type of lice lives on the pubic area. When you find out that you have lice, you have to kill not only the living bugs, but the eggs as well. There are a few symptoms of lice, i.e. itching, red bumps, tickling when your hair moves, and finding eggs. There is an over the counter medicine that can be used to treat lice, and will typically need to be used twice because the first treatment will not kill off the most recent eggs. After treatment you should wash all materials that have come in contact with the lice, just to make sure they are not on those articles anymore like bedding, clothing, and even carpet.

Key Takeaways:

  • Between six to 12 million head lice infestations happen every year among young children.
  • Head lice don’t spread or carry disease, but they will have people scratching their heads a lot.
  • Lice feed on human blood, are very small and don't have wings.

"The CDC estimates that somewhere between six to 12 million head lice infestations happen every year among kids aged three to 11 years of age. In the United States, you’ll find the majority of head lice cases occurring in preschool and elementary school children and the people they live with."

Not surprisingly, researchers have linked a lack of sleep to behavioral problems in kids. Specifically, a lack of sleep effects the executive functions in children, making simple tasks more challenging for them in school. These children would benefit from sleeping longer, and they would perform better in school. It is important for parents to see the the recommended amount of sleep for kids in their age brackets, and ensure their kids are getting enough sleep.

Key Takeaways:

  • Numerous cognitive functional difficulties, commonly observed by educational staff, among young children, have their roots in poor sleeping patterns, suggests a new study.
  • The survey used questionnaires, aimed at parents, to determine if young children were getting sleep amounts that fit the determined norms for optimal health.
  • Some things parents can do to optimize children's sleep times and quality, include eliminating distractions, keeping to a schedule and paying attention to individual children's needs.

"Children who aren’t getting the recommended amount of sleep have more difficulties with attention, with emotional control, with reasoning, with problem-solving, and also have behavioral problems."

Subject: Omega 3 fatty acids may reduce bacterial lung infections associated with COPD





Years of smoking takes its toll on the body. Many develop COPD, which causes mucous buildup in the lungs that blocks airflow, can also trap bacteria in the lungs that can lead to serious lung infections. The most common culprit is Haemophilus influenzae. Scientists have known for a while that foods high in omega-3 fatty acids are good for us, but they only just recently discovered that it is because of their anti-inflammatory properties. A new study is using omega-3s to reduce inflammation in COPD patients and lessen their chances of developing an infection.

Key Takeaways:

  • Compounds derived from omega-3 fatty acids – like those found in salmon – might be the key to helping the body combat lung infections, according to researchers at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.
  • The omega-3 derivatives were effective at clearing a type of bacteria called Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi), which often plagues people with inflammatory diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  • COPD, which is most often caused by years of smoking, is characterized by inflammation and excessive mucus in the lungs that blocks airflow.

"If we can figure out how to predict who is likely to get an infection, physicians could put them on a preventative medication."

Subject: Ways to Decrease the Risk of Heart Attack





There are ways to decrease the risk of having a heart attack. A heart attack is a life changing event that hurts a lot of people and getting rid of the risks is one important way to avoid having this terrible thing happen. Eating right and exercise are two really important things. Replace burger with something like fish and eat more fruits and veggies.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health report the magic ingredient in fish is omega-3 fatty acids. Fatty acids, like Aspirin, add oil to the blood, making it less likely that platelets will stick together to form a fatal clot.
  • Dr. Ernst Schaefer, chief of the Lipid Metabolism Laboratory at Tufts University in Boston, says the best way to lower CRP is to lose weight, and to keep away from processed foods and many dessert items that are high in pro-inflammatory omega - 6 fatty acids.
  • Sytrinol consists of citrus and palm fruit extract, known as plant sterols. This remedy is shown to be effective in decreasing total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL the bad cholesterol, and in increasing HDL, the good cholesterol.

"New evidence shows that an enteric-coated 81 milligram Aspirin daily decreases the risk of a second coronary attack."

A reason why diabetics suffer from inflammation has been verified. Through research on mice, Washington University has discovered that if there is a lack of fat in a cell, that particular cell cannot produce any fat. While inflammation does not need to be completely prevented, this discovery could provide new methods of dealing with excess inflammation in diabetics.

Key Takeaways:

  • Inflammation is one of the main reasons why people with diabetes experience heart attacks, strokes, kidney problems and other, related complications.
  • Too much fat in the diet promotes insulin resistance by spurring chronic inflammation.
  • Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine have developed a way to block production of fatty acids in these immune cells in mice and protect them from diet-induced diabetes.

Sleep is extremely important to study.

Key Takeaways:

  • Scientists have known for a while that an unusual sleep routine or insufficient sleep can lead to mental as well as physical illness. Sleeping disorders are found to be the root cause of many diseases including dementia.
  • The recent research conducted by researchers at the Harvard Medical School has discovered that sleep may be regulated in part by brain-based immune proteins.
  • Results of the study showed that the inflammasome recruits a sleep-inducing molecule to trigger somnolence following sleep deprivation and exposure to a bacterial toxin. Animals which lack genes for this protective immune complex showed profound sleep aberrations.

Subject: Fiber-rich diet could cut colorectal cancer risk, study finds





No one likes to talk about cancer, it is a very touchy subject for most people. However, Harvard has been conducting a study for the last 30 years and the study says if you have a rich whole-grain cereal and protein diet you have a lower risk of getting Colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly form and the third most common of the disease. Every little bit helps when it comes to our health, especially when trying to prevent such life changing diseases.

Key Takeaways:

  • Doctor Raaj Mehta and colleagues from Harvard Medical School (USA) suggest that a diet rich in fiber and whole grains could influence the risk of developing colorectal cancer linked to a strain of gut bacteria called Fusobacterium nucleatum.
  • Fusobacterium nucleatum is an inflammatory bacterium that is thought to play a role in colorectal cancer by blocking the immune response triggered to combat tumor cells in the colon.
  • However, the behavior of tumors not containing Fusobacterium nucleatum was unchanged and the risk of developing colorectal cancer not containing the bacterium was not reduced.

"Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly form of cancer and the third most common form of the disease."

Scientists are also hoping to raise awareness of how healthy the vegetable is. This stalky plant is rich in fiber, zinc, iron, folate, and vitamins A, C, and E.

Key Takeaways:

  • The groundbreaking study may pave the way to genetic engineering that would allow more people to detect the distinctive odor, the team at the Harvard School of Public Health said.
  • The firmly tongue-in-cheek study is published in the mostly humorous end-of-year holiday issue of the British Medical Journal.
  • The team used two big studies of 6,900 men and women to find out why some people can smell the asparagus effect and others cannot.

There are some mistakes which can be avoided. Do not let them drink till their full, or eat a constant stream of snacks. At a young age it is time to impress on the importance of healthy eating.

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s totally understandable why parents do this; after all, nobody wants their child to go hungry. So they fill the plate with chicken fingers and French fries and skip the vegetables.
  • They serve white bread and not whole grain, they let them eat chips instead of apple slices for snacks. The kid is happy and eats up, so the parents are happy.
  • The problem is that not only is the child not eating a healthy diet, the child isn’t learning to like the foods that can keep him healthy for a lifetime.

Sure, when you send your kids to School you worry about a lot of things: Fitting in, bullying, learning but never did you think that you would have to worry about bacteria from mice and other rodents. Researchers have shown that bacteria in School has caused an increase in asthma in School age kids. This is increasing at such an alarming rate that it finally caught the attention of health officials even though the effects have been happening for years.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers from Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School have jointly concluded that a major contributing factor to asthma in School-age children could be exposure to bacteria and allergens from rodents like mice.
  • Based on the analysis, no other airborne allergen was as problematic as the mouse dust, which the researchers identified as causing the worst asthma outcomes in children.
  • Indoor irritants can function as acute triggers of asthma symptoms, resulting in sufferers having to use more medication to treat it than they otherwise would if indoor environments were kept cleaner.

"Some 284 children from 37 inner-city public Schools located throughout the Northeastern United States were evaluated as part of the research."

Yes. Childhood depression is different from the normal "blues" and everyday emotions that occur as a child develops. Just because a child seems sad doesn't necessarily mean he or she has significant depression. If the sadness becomes persistent, or if disruptive behavior that interferes with normal social activities, interests, Schoolwork, or family life develops, it may indicate that he or she has a depressive illness.

Key Takeaways:

  • An early warning sign of depression in teenagers may not be sadness, but rather anxious and even irritable behavior.
  • These clues are important for flagging parents, teachers and doctors to the risk of major depression, which can disable adolescents just as they're starting life.
  • This is particularly important for children with a parent with major depression, who are at an even higher risk for depression.

"It can be hard to study depression in families."

With the emergence of Celiac disease in recent years, there are many who have cut gluten from their diet even though they do not suffer from the condition. It has been viewed as a fad new diet, but specialists argue that it can negatively impact your diet. The concern is that the lack of fortified breads, pastas, and cereals in a diet will cause a deficiency in essential B vitamins, folate, and fiber that come from them. Doctors are advising those who do not have Celiac disease to not cut gluten from their diet.

Key Takeaways:

  • A new report by Harvard Medical School states that gluten-free dieting can easily result in a lack of proper nutrition, particularly for those without celiac disease.
  • The truth is that there are no published reports showing that a gluten-free diet produces weight loss in persons without celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
  • Researchers are concerned that consumers who are eager to drop gluten from their diets may be lacking the essential B Vitamins, folate and fiber that comes from consuming fortified breads, cereals and pastas.

The common cold is an infection of your nose and throat caused by viruses. We typically catch between two and four colds a year. There is some evidence suggesting that people with higher levels of vitamin D may have a reduced risk of catching the common cold. Astragalus root has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to strengthen immunity and prevent colds and flu. Studies have found that astragalus has antiviral properties and stimulates the immune system, although there have been no clinical trials examining the effectiveness of astragalus against colds in humans.

Key Takeaways:

  • Like clockwork, the cold and flu season is nearly upon once again. Cooler fall weather, kids heading back to School and other factors all contribute to the spread of influenza.
  • The fact is humans have used natural cold remedies to relieve symptoms of cold and flu since the earliest of times.
  • Also, a Zulu cold treatment that is made from the South African geranium Pelargonium sidoide is now a best-selling cold remedy the world over, because it, too, is supported by clinical research.

"For instance, elderberries have been used as medicine since the Stone Age, according to Melanie Grimes, scholar, academic, author and homeopathic expert."

Subject: Top 10 foods to eat if you sit all day at work or School





If you get up every day around six in the morning, make breakfasts and lunches, and then sit for about an hour in the car dropping them off to School and then driving to work, where I sit for a few hours more.Not much different from when I was in School, where marathon sitting and studying was the norm. Get out there and exercise, too, at least 30 minutes a day, and if not, make sure you get up from your desk every 45 minutes of so and get the blood pumping and give your monitor-staring eyes a rest.

Key Takeaways:

  • Bright and beautiful, this yellow spice possesses anti-inflammatory effects that are good for the sedentary person.
  • Prepare your lunch foods with olive oil and reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease;
  • Almonds are an excellent anti-oxidant Vitamin E and contains a plant-based anti-inflammatory omega-3.

"After all, prolonged sitting has been associated with hunger pangs and obesity and decrease in concentration. Don't forget the water."

Subject: Stronger muscles may mean sharper minds for kids





There may come a day when children who are struggling academically are sent to the gym instead of detention. A recent U.S. study has found a strong link between physical fitness and academic achievement in kids. They assessed the physical endurance of 75 children and then gave them memory, algebra, and other tests to see how well they did. The results showed that children who were more physically fit did much better than those who were not. It has always been recommended for children to get exercise, but now it seems to be even more important.

Key Takeaways:

  • Making sure kids have good muscle fitness might also benefit their School performance, according to a recent U.S. study.
  • Aerobic fitness has already been linked to better thinking abilities in pre-teen children, but the current study found an independent link between muscle fitness and kids’ performance on memory tests as well as their math and reading skills.
  • Aerobic fitness describes the capacity of the lungs to take in and deliver oxygen as well as the heart to effectively distribute oxygen to the body,” Hillman told Reuters Health by email. “Musculoskeletal fitness relates to muscle strength, power and endurance to enable performance in the face of resistance.”

"For the study, which was funded by Nike, 75 kids aged 9 to 11 years completed an aerobic exercise test at steady speed on a treadmill with gradually increasing incline until they were too out of breath to continue."

We know we should eat more fruits and vegetables, but it turns out that a diet high in these too foods may also help with diseases like ALS. Studies are showing that the foods we eat play a huge rule in both triggering and the prognosis of the disease. Lunch meats and milk should be avoided, while foods high in fiber and some meats may actually help.

Key Takeaways:

  • fruits and vegetables that are high in antioxidant nutrientsare associated with better function in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a severe neurodegenerative disorder
  • It appears that nutrition plays a role both in triggering the disease and why it progresses

"New research at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health reveals that foods like fruits and vegetables that are high in antioxidant nutrients and carotenoids are associated with better function in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients around the time of diagnosis."

Subject: When to Take Your Vitamins: Timing is Key to Effectiveness





The ideal method of getting necessary vitamins and minerals is through natural foods and juices. In most cases the modern diet does not provide all of the key nutrients needed for healthy living, so many people turn to vitamins and supplements. The effectiveness of these additions are often dependent on when they are taken and whether they are taken with or without food.

Key Takeaways:

  • “The best way to get all your nutrients is from food,” notes Dr. Ellen Kamhi, a medical School instructor and author of "The Natural Medicine Chest."
  • “But of course there is a large amount of scientific evidence that supports the use of supplements. There are many instances when your diet isn’t sufficient to provide all the necessary nutrients because of toxic growing conditions, the chemicals used in GMO crops, or simply poor eating habits.
  • “The calcium will most likely be absorbed but will block the absorption of magnesium,” she tells Newsmax Health. “And if you take iron supplements, avoid ferrous sulfate. Choose ferrous chelate or fumerate instead.”

Subject: US needs to stop sugar-coating research on nutrition



Have you ever seen research on nutrition? Do you feel that they often sugar coat everything when it comes to the research? If you feel that way, you aren’t the only one. In the past after a report on sugar and its contributions to heart disease, School cafeterias changed the menus. Before that can happen again to prevent that from repeating, a few things have to change. To learn more about research on nutrition and how it affects you, read more here in the article.

Key Takeaways:

  • The tampering of this Harvard research paper impacted 50 years’ worth of research on heart disease and nutritional science.
  • This transition contributed significantly to the current obesity problem, which costs over $100 billion in annual estimated health care costs.
  • The tampering of this Harvard publication reveals the damaging effects from industries meddling with scientific research.

"By pressuring universities to be transparent with the sources of their financial backers, and by increasing public funding for university-led research, I am confident that people will be able to once again deem scientific publications trustworthy."

Subject: Secondhand smoke linked to higher risk of stroke



A new study from the John Hopkins School of Medicine has linked inhalation of secondhand smoke to an increase risk of stroke. The study concluded that people who had suffered a stroke but never smoked cigarettes were almost 50% more likely to have been exposed to secondhand smoke at home. In America nearly 25% of nonsmokers are still exposed regularly to secondhand smoke.

Key Takeaways:

  • The increased risk of stroke that comes with smoking may extend to nonsmokers who live in the same household and breathe in secondhand smoke, a U.S. study suggests.
  • Researchers found that those who had a stroke were nearly 50 percent more likely to be exposed to secondhand smoke at home than people who had never had a stroke.
  • During the study, stroke survivors exposed to secondhand smoke were also more likely to die from any cause compared to those without secondhand smoke exposure.

"Researchers found that those who had a stroke were nearly 50 percent more likely to be exposed to secondhand smoke at home than people who had never had a stroke."

Subject: First Day of School and your Child Comes Home Sick? Fight Back With This Remedy

It is quite disheartening when your beloved child comes home sick on his first day of School. And that is most likely due to bacteria back in their School. How do you deal with it? How do you ensure your child is healthy again and cushion him from such sicknesses in the future?

Digestive health is essential when fighting back against bacteria at School.

One way to boost digestive health is through soluble fiber. Acacia fiber is a kind of soluble fiber extracted from Acacia Senegal tree sap. It grows in Pakistan, India and some Parts of Africa. It is also known as the acacia gum or gum Arabic.

 The Acacia Fiber is also a prebiotic fibers essential for the strengthening of the good bacteria in the gut. Your child's first line of defense is in the digestive tract.  Keeping their friendly bacteria healthy can block the spread of bacteria in the digestive tract. 

Acacia fiber is odorless, flavorless and doesn’t cause bloating and gas (because it slows down what is known as colonic fermentation). The substance is very safe for continuous and even lifelong use. It has been labeled as safe for use in the treatment of children.

Fight back against School born bacteria by strengthening your child's own friendly bacteria with either a soluble fiber like acacia or by giving them a probiotic daily.

bacopa plantAbout focus

A focused mind is one that is able to concentrate on a particular issue and think about it, discuss it or deal with it and pay special attention to that subject. This explains why people have different focus abilities as brought about by their varying environments and capabilities. Enhanced minds quickly grasp ideas as opposed to low minded ones. A determined mind therefore understands and interpret facts more readily in an effective way, and this is why it is important for individuals to to be focused at School. However, there are instances where learners have limited focus abilities, but this can be improved by use of focus supplements. The following are the supplements that can be used to boost an individual's focus levels.

Supplement that can help improve focus

Phosphatidyl Serine improves the mood and short term memory of an individual, thereby enhancing retention of a human's mind. This supplement lowers the chances of cognitive dysfunction development. It contains cellulose, magnesium stearate, cellulose capsule and silica, as the main ingredients. The capsule dosage can be taken three times every day.

DMAE is also known as dimethylethanolamine and it increase acetylcholine levels which is a vital neurotransmitter of the brain. This helps to reduce the neuronal excitation in calming the under firing, to generate an average calming impact in the mind, thereby boosting focus levels.

L-Tyrosine is another supplement that can be used to improve a person's focus abilities. This is associated with generating amino acids that are responsible for enhancement of drive, motivation and alertness in the body. Acetyl-l-tyrosine is an ingredient that helps to maintain cognitive duty while in distress. Tyrosine crosses the blood brain barrier, hence making it an outstanding nutrient for the health of the brain. Tyrosine also generates a hormone called thyroid, that increases focus.

Bacopa is a persistent creeping herb supplement that has been used for a long time to improve memory, and generally cognitive performance. It contains ingredients that reduces oxidation stress, namely; polyphenol and sulfhydryl compounds. The recommended dosage is 150 mg of bacopa every day.
