Subject: Why a little sun makes us feel so good





Who doesn't like basking in the rays of sunshine on a nice summer day? Since sunlight has the natural ability to raise serotonin levels, it naturally has the ability to regulate and improve your mood. Not getting enough exposure to sunlight on a regular basis can actually lead to the same harmful side effects that are associated with obesity and smoking. UV exposure is especially important for those who are impacted by seasonal affective disorder (SAD), even if it is received in an artificial setting.

Key Takeaways:

  • UVB radiation from sunlight is what causes the human body to synthesize critical vitamin D.
  • Vitamin D propels genes in the human body that aid in regulating the immune system and in releasing neurotransmitters in the brain.
  • One of the neurotransmitters directly impacted by vitamin D is serotonin, the lack of which is highly implicated in an array of mood disorders.

"A recent study, found that underexposure to sun carried significant risks, similar to smoking, obesity, and being sedentary."

Even though they refer to both types of cannabis, it should be noted that the two types are not interchangeable and have only a slightly different chemical compound. The study showed that active cannabis use provides a profound protective effect against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, independent of other known metabolic risk factors. Unfortunately they haven't yet uncovered how precisely how it provides benefit to the patient in need, it does provide a reduction in pain.

Key Takeaways:

  • A large study of patients with a history of alcoholism showed that cannabis use can lower the odds of liver diseases, including cancer.
  • Hemp, though it doesn't have enough THC to get patients 'high', still has medicinal properties.
  • Smoking cannabis has been shown to be over 100 times safer than drinking alcohol.

"The study found that using cannabis correctly significantly lowered the odds of various liver diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and even hepatocellular carcinoma, a type of liver cancer."

Subject: Why people love CBD - the cannabis product that won't get you high

The CBD market is booming after the recent legalization of marijuana in many states. CBD is short for cannabidiol which is a compound found in cannabis and hemp plants. It is not a psychoactive- you do not get high from ingestion. It is commonly used to treat anxiety and insomnia. Further studies are being conducted to research its efficiency against arthritis and epilepsy. CBD is normally extracted into an oil or cream, but can be sold in a variety of products.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are plenty of states now that are making the smoking of weed completely legal.
  • Many old school individuals still feel that anything related to cannabis should not be legalized.
  • People really do like CBD because it has the same effects as weed without getting you truly high.

"So, what exactly is CBD — and why are you able to get your hands on it even if you don't live in a state where cannabis is legal?"

Subject: A powerful antioxidant: Curcumin protects your heart from damagecaused by diabetes and smoking





Both diabetes and routine engagement in tobacco smoking can raise the risk of cardiovascular damage due to a rise in oxidative stress. While curcumin isn't proven to completely diminish the amount of oxidative stress that is caused as a result of diabetic and tobacco consumption symptoms, it does greatly decrease the amount of oxidative stress that is experienced by each individual which naturally results in the heart being less vulnerable. It is also known to specifically reduce the amount of hyperglycemia-induced oxidative stress.

Key Takeaways:

  • It has been reported that taking curcumin supplements can protect a person from risk to cardiovascular diseases that is caused by diabetes and smoking.
  • This study was conducted at the Kind Saud University in Saudi Arabia. The researchers studied the oxidative stress caused by diabetes and smoking and curcumin’s effects on them.
  • The researchers found that administering nicotine to rats induced oxidative stress in the rats and also increased triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein.

"For the study, the researchers administered nicotine to diabetic rats to determine the effect of the combined oxidative stress of diabetes and nicotine."

Patients who are diabetic or engage in tobacco smoking can unfortunately face health concerns in regards to oxidative stress that impacts their cardiovascular function. A lot of this oxidative stress is referred to as hyperglycemia-induced, and it is shown to be less prevalent when curcumin is consumed. In one particular study, the administration of the curcumin actually prevented the oxidative stress due to diabetes and tobacco smoking altogether. This could show great promise for those struggling with insulin levels and tobacco addiction.

Key Takeaways:

  • It is well known that diabetes and smoking both cause oxidative stress, and that they are the main factors to consider when there are cardiovascular diseases.
  • To understand the effects of curcumin, researchers from the King Saud University in Saudi Arabia had to give nicotine to diabetic rats to study oxidative stress on them.
  • It was found that oxidative stress was increased in these rats due to the increased production of nitric oxide.

"Research has found that curcumin can protect cardiac tissues from the combined oxidative stress induced by diabetes and nicotine."

Subject: One more reason to supplement: Probiotics reduce cadmium toxicity





A new study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food claims that probiotic supplements can aid with the reduction of cadmium toxicity. Researchers found that probiotics actually help eradicate a body's cadmium by fastening to their bacterial cell wall and then remove them via feces. If a person is looking to lower their exposure to cadmium then they might want to stop smoking and if they don't smoke then also avoid inhaling another person's cigarette smoke as well.

Key Takeaways:

  • Two sets of researchers in Serbia and Libya have found that taking probiotics will help eliminate cadmium that exist in the body so that they can be excreted.
  • The study that made this discovery about probiotics was done on mice which found that cadmium that has environmental toxicity effects on the body can be reduced.
  • When the study was conducted by feeding mice probiotics, many correlations were found in the excreta concerning cadmium that suggested probiotics eliminated cadmium and pass them through excreta.

"Lower cadmium levels can also be found in vegetables, cereals, and starchy roots. It has toxic effects on the kidneys, the skeletal system, and the respiratory system. It is also classified as a human carcinogen."

Smoking marijuana found to have the same weakening effect on the blood vessels as cigarettes

The movement to legalize marijuana has been making significant progression in it’s path to success lately, but scientists are now finding that cannabis unfortunately has the same impact on the blood vessels as smoking cigarettes. Experts at the University of California in San Francisco found that when you take in marijuana, your blood vessels become impaired up to 50%, which is quite an alarming amount to say the least. The experiment was initially performed on lab rats in order to get accurate figures.

Key Takeaways:

  • University of California researchers suggest that hemp users would be well advised to use a liquid form and avoid smoking the substance.
  • Rats exposed to cigarette and marijuana second-hand smoke experienced a fifty percent impairment of their blood vessels.
  • The impairment to the rodent's blood vessels persisted for at least an hour and a half after the initial incident.

"According to a new study, marijuana smoke causes the same straining effect on blood vessels that smoke from cigarettes does."

Subject: Experts Weigh in on Safe Cannabis Consumption





As cannabis legalization spreads across the US, the debate is in for what is safe consumption. While any drug should be done with limitations, those limitations, especially for amount and duration need to be developed, as well as how you should properly interact with the drug. While there is no worry about a "THC overdose" they still need to determine what the long term detrimental effects are of the drug as well as which is better for the body. Should you smoke it? Vaporize it? Ingest it? Is it better in its pure THC form or is there benefit from the plant. More studies will follow.

Key Takeaways:

  • The state of Vermont is trying to figure out what the best way it is for people to use.
  • They aren't moving to a complete retail model and will still control the supply of the drug
  • The debate still centers around the difference between edibles, smoking or vaping when it comes to consumption.

With the rising in numbers of the disease diabetes, there are more people at risk for becoming blind. Diabetes causes a high risk for blindness, but there are preventative ways in which people can protect themselves from this risk. They need to maintain blood sugar levels, talk to their doctor about overall well-being such as diets, physical activity, and medications. They should not miss appointments with the doctor! A missed appointment could mean missed information. They should refrain from using any kinds of drugs, alcohol, or tobacco, as the chemicals can increase risk for damage to the eye. As long as the diabetic person lives a healthy lifestyle and maintains it, they can help prevent or reduce the risk of becoming blind in the future.

Key Takeaways:

  • High blood-glucose levels are responsible for all forms of diabetic eye disease. See your doctor regularly for help with medications, proper eating habits, etc.
  • There are currently 51 million people living with diabetes. India leads the world in prevailance of diabetes, and is expected to worsen by 2030.

It's easy for me to believe that the elderly would benefit from cannabis. Considering the plant is useful for pain management and arthritis pain. While i was in favor of the first point, I wasn't sure of what to think of point two. The usual stereotype for a cannabis user is dad bod at best.

I do wish there was more studies done on the benefits of cannabis over prescription pain relief for elderly. With America going through an opioid epidemic, you can see instant and prolonged benefit from this issue. Younger patients could be introduced to cannabis from a medical standpoint immediately, and not need opioids at age 11 for an appendix surgery.

Endocannabinoids are apparently good for bone strength. Which is great for the elderly.

Again, chronic pain is relieved by cannabis. Dementia can also be treated with cannabis. And can be prevented by smoking as an adult.

Enjoying life doesn't mean smoking cannabis, but smoking cannabis makes life enjoyable.

Key Takeaways:

  • pot use is gradually on the rise for older adults. It is not just a kdi thing anymore
  • there are numerous positive (though unsubstantiated)benefits to using marijuana

Subject: Consuming Cannabis Could Slash Your Chances Of Blood Clots, Stroke: Study





As possession of cannabis slowly starts to become legal, it is important to be aware of the possible effects in those who use the drug. Recent studies have revealed that cannabis may actually contribute to health by potentially decreasing the likelihood of stroke and contribute to brain activity. In a study involving 175 volunteers, researchers observed that cannabis users had an increased systemic flow of blood and oxygen, including within the brain, specifically around the forebrain, related to learning. In addition, head researcher, Dr. Francesca Filbey, states that the primary ingredient in cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which dilates blood vessels, causing a drop in blood pressure, and increasing blood flow.

Key Takeaways:

  • Smoking or eating marijuana (cannabis) can reduce the likelihood of having a stroke because oxygen and blood flow are improved.
  • Studies in the past focused more on cognitive and psychological effects of marijuana. Now researchers are also paying attention to physical effects.
  • Blood flow in the part of the brain that affects learning is increased when marijuana is used.

"Past marijuana research has shown changes in cognitive functions such as memory and executive functioning,"

With all the research that goes into cancer treatments, something rather interesting has been found. The active ingredient in marijuana is called THC. This has been found to kill cancer cells without damaging the healthy cells around it. It lab research with mice, they found that brain tumors shrunk when using this substance. This research does not condone people going out and trying to cure themselves by smoking marijuana. That is not showing any promise, even though many people are doing it. It makes one wonder if this THC is really doing in reality what research is showing. Brain cancer patients that are using marijuana have been showing a decrease in their cancer that would indicate there is a lot of validity to the research.

Key Takeaways:

  • Dr. Yu warns cancer patients that they should not consider marijuana a potential cure for cancer and urges that people "not start smoking pot right away as a means of curing their own cancer."
  • These results may help to design new cancer therapies based on the use of medicines containing the active principle of marijuana and/or in the activation of autophagy

A new report looking at what causes stomach cancer found three new somewhat surprising links: alcohol, processed meat and obesity. All three are linked with several other cancers, including colon cancer and breast cancer, but this is the first time they've been associated with stomach cancer. The report also finds more typical causes: smoking, eating food preserved with salt, and infection with a bacteria called Helicobacter pylori.

Key Takeaways:

  • OVERWEIGHT PEOPLE IN their twenties who then become obese later in life could be three times more likely to develop cancer of the esophagus or upper stomach, according to a study published Wednesday in the British Journal of Cancer.
  • “This study highlights how weight gain over the course of our lives can increase the risk of developing these two cancer types, both of which have extremely poor survival,” Dr. Jessica Petrick, the study’s leader, said.
  • Excess weight can lead to long-term reflux problems and heartburn that can eventually lead to cancer, according to Petrick.

"Those who gained more than 45 pounds also faced twice the risk of developing esophageal cancer, compared to those who maintained a healthy weight."

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."

The people who eat the most plants tend to meet the recommendations set by the experts on amount of salt you should have a day.

  • Most Americans consume far more than the recommended amount of sodium
  • Population-wide efforts to reduce dietary salt may be as effective at reducing deaths related to high blood pressure as drug therapy, weight loss, and smoking cessation
  • It may be difficult for individuals to reduce their sodium intake because much of the sodium in our diets is added to foods by manufacturers

"Every time there is a video on salt, people ask questions about “natural”/pink/sea/Himalayan salt. Other times, people simply assert that sea salt is healthy or perhaps different enough to invalidate studies showing salt is bad for us."

Key Takeaways:

  • Marijuana is now legal for medicinal use in 26 states and the District of Columbia, and for recreational use in seven, but contrary to what some media may have us believe, this doesn’t mean that people are just sitting back and getting high.
  • This choice to smoke cannabis rather than take synthetic THC has largely been attributed to smoking being a faster-acting way to reap the benefits.
  • Several studies have shown a link between marijuana consumption and depression, but while according to the Mayo Clinic, pot smokers are more commonly diagnosed with depression than non-pot smokers, the link may not be one of causality.

"First off, don’t confuse CBD oil with hemp oil — a nutritional oil more properly known as hempseed oil. Made from crushing hempseed or hemp hearts, hemp oil is very rich in linoleic and alpha-linoleic acids and antioxidants, and it has an optimal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids."

Subject: Red meat link to common bowel disease: study





Watch out if your on a rich red meat diet! Studies show people on red meat rich diets have been linked to a heightened risk of a bowel inflammation called diverticulitis. Diverticulitis is a common condition in which small pockets lining the intestine become irritated. Diverticulitis causes 200,000 hospital admissions every year in the United States alone.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers have determined connections between the consumption of red meat and an intestinal illness called diverticulitis.
  • Several behaviors, including low-fiber diets, smoking, obesity, and the use of anti-inflammatory drugs, have also been linked to diverticulitis.
  • Research found that even after controlling for other factors, diverticulitis increased among men in the study group who consumed more red meat.

"Diverticulitis is a common condition which occurs when small pockets lining the intestine -- called diverticula -- become irritated."

According to a study by the University of Illinois, eating foods rich in lutein like many leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables, for example, will help promote a healthy aging brain. The study did not specify the amount of lutein that is needed for ultimate brain protection and only concluded that more levels of the vitamin meant a better chance at brain health preservation. If your brain health is poor, Collingridge says it could lead to other serious neurological conditions like developmental disorders right through to dementia.

Key Takeaways:

  • Research also shows that lutein accumulates in the grey matter of brain regions known to underlie the preservation of cognitive function in healthy brain again.
  • The University of Illinois study looked at 122 healthy people between the ages of 65 and 75. They were asked to solve problems and answer questions on a standard test of crystallized intelligence.
  • The study did not specify the amount of lutein that is needed for ultimate brain protection and only concluded that more levels of the vitamin meant a better chance at brain health preservation.

"smoking can cause illnesses that contribute to memory loss, including stroke and hypertension. smoking also constricts the blood vessels to the brain, depriving it of oxygen and possibly harming neurons."

Subject: Another study links diet soda to weight gain





There are many who switch from regular to diet soda when they go on a diet so as not to be without their favorite drinks. However, a recent study conducted by the National Institute on Aging and the National Institutes of Health shows that artificial sweeteners may actually cause more weight gain than regular sugar. The research adjusted data for other factors and found that those who drink more diet soda tend to be more heavyset. The leading theories on why this happens are that it alters the gut flora or that the lack of calories makes us eat more.

Key Takeaways:

  • This latest investigation on the subject was conducted by the National Institute on Aging and the National Institutes of Health in Baltimore, Maryland.
  • The researchers analyzed data compiled from 1984 to 2006 as part of the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging.
  • Chronic low-calorie sweetener consumption was shown to contribute to obesity, particularly abdominal obesity.

"After correcting the data of the 1,454 study participants for lifestyle factors such as smoking, gender and diet, the team found a link between obesity levels, body size and the consumption of diet soda."

Subject: Microbes in your gut influence age-related macular degeneration





Age-related macular degeneration affects over 10 million people in North America. A study performed in Montreal has recently discovered that bacteria in our guts may be the culprit behind a specific form of the disease called blinding wet age-related macular degeneration. The bacteria cause inflammation that leads to deposits of fat debris in the back of the eyes and destruction of nerve cells. It is suggested that diets with high fat intake alter the stomach bacteria and make it possible for this scenario to occur.

Key Takeaways:

  • Current treatments becomes less effective with time. It is therefore important to find new ways to prevent the onset of this debilitating disease.
  • While many studies on the genetics of AMD have identified several genes that predispose to AMD, no single gene can account for development of the disease.
  • Epidemiological data suggests that in men, overall abdominal obesity is the second most important environmental risk factor, after smoking, for progression to late-stage blinding AMD.

"Among the series of experiments conducted as part of this study, the group performed fecal transfers from mice receiving regular fat diets, compared to those receiving a high fat diet, and found a significant amelioration of wet AMD"

Calcium Supplements and the Heart: Clearing Up the Confusion

Subject: Calcium Supplements and the Heart: Clearing Up the Confusion





The Institute of Medicine has recommended 1000-1200 mg of calcium daily for most adults, and the tolerable upper intake level has been set at 2000-2500 mg of calcium daily. Even a recent observational study from the MESA cohort suggested an association between calcium supplements and coronary artery calcium, but it is important to note that in observational studies, the association does not prove causation. In the large-scale Women's Health Initiative calcium and vitamin D trial, we found no association between calcium and vitamin D supplementation and coronary artery calcium measured at the end of the 7-year trial.

Key Takeaways:

  • We know that both calcium and vitamin D are essential for bone health, but concerns have been raised from selected reports in recent years about heart risk.
  • There are other reasons that there could be an association, such as overlapping risk factors for osteoporosis and heart disease, including smoking and lack of exercise.
  • There are many dietary sources of calcium, including dairy products (milk, yogurt, cheese), fatty fish with bones (such as sardines), fortified beverages, and leafy greens.

Osteoporosis is a disease that affects bone density and is especially prevalent in women over 50. Women younger than 50, and even as young as 30 are experiencing this disease at a higher rate; poor lifestyle choices such as smoking and consuming alcohol may be the cause. Learn how, an active lifestyle, calcium intake and sun exposure can decrease the risk of osteoporosis, especially before menopause is reached.

Key Takeaways:

  • At 38 years of age, Pratima (name changed) believed she was too young to suffer from low bone density. However, after when she suffered a fracture in her arm after a minor fall, tests revealed she had osteoporosis of the level usually prevalent in women over 60!
  • Doctors at Columbia Asia Hospitals, Gurgaon say the incidence of osteoporosis or osteopaenia in women under 50 has markedly increased over the past 20 years. Bone loss is a silent condition which generally occurs slowly over a long period.
  • Osteoporosis may be linked to multiple risk factors. smoking is an important factor depleting bone health in women today. Firstly, the toxic components of smoke upset the hormonal balance in the body, particularly affecting estrogen production.

"Tobacco smoking has a series of negative repercussions on health. While increased risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease is the most talked about."

  • Naturally, this includes vitamins and minerals. Many of them are essential to ensure the health of the follicle, the papilla and its matrix, and the hair that grows from it.
  • The hair that is outside the scalp has no nerves or blood supply, and is classified as “dead” tissue. It must be, or it could not be cut painlessly.
