Subject: Study shows that vitamin D can help lower your risk of Type 2diabetes





Many people are frightened by the prospect of type 2 diabetes given all the risks that it comes with which include regular finger pricks for tests, and a host of complications for diseases like kidney and liver damage, and a higher risk of having stroke or heart disease. Preventing type 2 diabetes is then essential and recent studies have shown that vitamin D can help in that regard. The researchers already knew that vitamin D can help with insulin sensitivity and pancrease beta cells function so they wanted to find out the link between vitamin D and blood glucose levels. 680 women between the ages of 35 and 74 were experimented upon and they were given vitamin D supplementation and exposure to sunlight. They found a negative association between vitamin D and blood glucose level meaning that vitamin D, especially being exposed to sunlight, reduced the levels of glucose in the blood. They also found that vitamin D deficiency was associated with a high level of glucose in the blood. This present study was found to correlate with other studies between vitamin D presence in the body and glucose levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Having type 2 diabetes is a frightening prospect because the condition entails a lot of complications like regular finger pricks for tests.
  • Since they already know that vitamin D can help one with insulin sensitivity and the function of pancreatic beta cells, the researchers wanted to find out the link.
  • 680 women were studied and they found that those who had high levels of vitamin D due to sunlight and supplementation had lower levels of blood glucose.

"Specifically, those who had high levels of vitamin D enjoyed a 55 percent lower chance of developing type 2 diabetes, a 51 percent lower change of metabolic syndrome, and a 33 percent lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease."

Scientific literature on how marijuana works on the body is rapidly expanding. Right now, there are a plethora of studies on how marijuana works on the human brain. Some studies have shown that it can be effective in treating disorders of the brain like epilepsy. Recent tests show that marijuana can increase the risk of dementia because it restricts the flow of blood to the brain. These brain areas are essential for memory development. The area most affected is the hippocampus which can result in Alzheimer’s if prolonged. The researchers for the study used single photo emission computed tomography (SPECT) to measure blood flow to the brain after taking marijuana and they reported that there were very low and abnormal blood flow levels observed. This is when compared with persons who did not take marijuana. 982 patients were selected from a wide variety of data sources that was available to the researchers concerning persons who previously used or were still using marijuana. The results of the study showed that persons taking marijuana were at a risk of dementia due to the low blood flow to their hippocampus.

Key Takeaways:

  • The author notes that the studies regarding the effect of marijuana is increasing and this is particularly so regarding its effect on the brain.
  • Some recent tests show that it can increase the risk of dementia when marijuana is taken because it reduces the blood flow to the brain.
  • When the researchers used single photon emission computer tomography to analyze blood flow to the brain they observed abnormally low flow to the brain with users of marijuana.

"Users were analyzed using a brain SPECT and by conducting mental concentration tests against a sample of 100 people who had not used marijuana to determine whether there were significant differences that arose between users and non-users of cannabis."

Subject: Can aloe vera be used to treat sepsis?





Aloe vera can be used for plenty of skin conditions, but new evidence suggests it could be used for blood infections, because of the metabolites in the plant. A Chinese and Japanese study looked at this using mice, and found that aloe metabolites suppressed inflammation, due to reduced nitric oxide level. This is important because sepsis harms the body's own tissues and organs, and can be fatal. Aloe also has other uses, such as skin care, warding off cancer, treating digestive issues, and lowering blood sugar levels.

Key Takeaways:

  • Sepsis though not too common should be seen as a serious condition because it can lead to death or organ failure if the condition is not immediately treated.
  • A team of researchers from China and Japan sought out natural treatment for this disease and found out that aloe vera plant metabolites could be helpful.
  • The trials were conducted in both the laboratory and in animals and the team sought to find out how aloe vera metabolites has anti-inflammatory effects against sepsis.

"After using various tests to determine inflammation, the Chinese and Japanese research team found that aloe metabolites suppressed the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs). Aloe metabolites also decreased the production of proinflammatory cytokines and nitric oxide."

Nobody wants to think about losing their memories as they begin to age. Luckily, a Chinese medicinal herb called gardenia has been shown to contain components that can help improve cognitive function. Scientists studied mice that were given daily doses of gardenia, and the research revealed that a component called GJ-4 had the ability to help repair cognitive damage, reduce brain inflammation, and even help expand the body's ability to hold antioxidants which help promote brain function.

Key Takeaways:

  • Crocin, which is found in gardenia fruit has neuro protective properties
  • Crocin has shown in lab tests to help stave off the degenerative disease that effect memory and neuro function
  • Gardenia essential oil has anti inflammatory, anti microbial and culinary properties

"In the study, researchers looked at Chinese herbs, which have been used medicinally for thousands of years, as a good source for potential drugs for Alzheimer’s."

Subject: Men, here's a diet plan for a better memory: leafy greens, darkorange and red vegetables, berries, and a glass of OJ





According to a recent Harvard University study, the optimal diet for men who want to maintain strong cognitive health consists of eating leafy green vegetables, berries, orange and red vegetables, and orange juice. Researcher Changzheng Yuan studied 28,000 men over the course of 20 years, tracking their dietary habits and periodically testing their cognitive skills. The group that consumed the most vegetables, about six servings per day, performed better on thinking skills tests than the group that ate half that. There was also a positive association found between eating fruits and overall brain health.

Key Takeaways:

  • One study, centering on cognition, set out to track nearly 3000 men for two decades.
  • All the study participants were human adult, male professionals in the health field.
  • Every participant was questioned about specific food usage upon their entry and at four year intervals thereafter.

"Yuan noted that participants who ate all these fruits and vegetables at the start of the study – 20 years ago – enjoyed better cognitive and memory skills."

Our brains are the most important thing we could ever possess, so why not take something that helps naturally assist it’s function. Omega-3 is the main focus of this article and centers on new evidence found that an aging brain can be somewhat suppressed by consuming some good ole omega-3. It quickly touches on two specific studies and their findings concerning the size of one part of the brain. Additionally, it outlines a few extra benefits of the vitamin and the importance of striking a good bodily balance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although aging cannot be stopped, but the best thing one can do for himself is to age in the healthiest manner possible.
  • It has been found by researchers in their studies that healthy brain aging can be promoted by consuming omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the right proportion.
  • Because the brain is composed of different complex interconnected parts that age at different rates, some brain structures can deteriorate faster than others.

"The researchers found that people who had higher blood levels of certain omega-3 fatty acids – namely ecosatrienoic acid, stearidonic acid, and ALA – had a bigger frontoparietal cortex and therefore performed better on fluid intelligence tests."

Subject: Fascinating study shows vitamin C reduces the risk of cognitiveimpairment





The scientific journal Nutrients recently published a study from New Zealand which suggests that Vitamin C plays an important part in preventing age-related cognitive impairment. The trial involved 400 New Zealanders over 50, who had their blood levels of Vitamin C checked and completed cognitive testing. Not only did higher levels of Vitamin C in the blood reduce the risk of cognitive impairment, but levels indicative of a moderate deficiency caused this risk to double! Higher levels of Vitamin C were also associated with better metabolic health.

Key Takeaways:

  • One vitamin C specific study used New Zealand natives of 50 years of age.
  • The testing relied on blood levels of the vitamin rather than on dietary intake.
  • Researchers ensured that the 400 test subjects underwent an exhaustive battery of cognitive function tests.

"Recently, a team of scientists from New Zealand found that vitamin C can help reduce the risk of cognitive impairment as you age."

Chrysanthemin is a naturally occurring, odorless, but colorful pigment, normally found in blueberries, acai berries and camu camu fruits. Recently, the pigment made scientific news, which was published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary, and Alternative Medicine. Chinese researchers used an array of sophisticated tests to observe how chrysanthemin interacted with and affected prostate cancer cells. The testing and observation revealed that chysanthemin not only inhibited cell growth, but also actively induced cancer cell death. Besides this new and stunning research spotlighting chrysanthemin's potential as a cancer fighter, the substance has other purported health benefits. Data suggests the pigment may be a useful adjunct in the treatment if diabetes and cardiovascular disease. It may also aid cognitive function, skeletal issues and liver function. Study also suggests chrysanthemin can fight inflammation and High fat in the blood.

Key Takeaways:

  • The main goal of the study was to see how chrysanthemin directly impacted cell volume as well as their viability.
  • Chrysanthemin is considered a pigment, and it is part of the anthocyanin family.
  • Studies on animals have shown that chrysanthemin can help decrease the risk of diabetes.

Foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids are showing promise in the reduction of inflammation and arthritic pain. A study was done where 167 adults who suffered from knee pain were given blood tests in order to evaluate where their levels of omega-3 fatty acids were. Those who had less omega-3 compared to omega-6 were the participants that had the most bothersome symptoms. Omega-6 differs from omega-3 in the fact that these polyunsaturated fatty acids are detrimental to health due to inflammatory responses that they induce.

Key Takeaways:

  • 167 individuals with knee arthritis were assessed for this study and their omega-6 fatty acid ratios were compared to their omega-3 fatty acids.
  • According to the results, individuals with more ratios of omega-6 fatty acids in their blood than omega-3 fatty acids were prone to knee arthritis pain and worse knee function.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids contains compounds that are anti-inflammatory so foods rich in this fatty acid like eggs, salmon, and green leafy vegetables, should be taken regularly.

"Making simple dietary changes can greatly improve your health. Eating more foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and fewer foods high in omega-6 fatty acids can reduce inflammation and arthritis pain, according to a study published in the Clinical Journal of Pain."

Turmeric and its much-lauded, health-giving component, curcumin, have had a health buzz about them for a long time. The health benefits to those that use turmeric and consequently curcumin, have long been noted. But, though its benefits for a wide array of bodily systems, including the cardiovascular, are not disputed, it has heretofore not been understood if turmeric, or more specifically curcumin, does some of its wonders by lowering lipid levels. The Second Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University has now performed a meta-analysis of available data, surrounding turmeric and curcumin, as a means of filling the knowledge gap. The researchers began by filtering the data, searching for studies revolving around turmeric, cholesterol and triglycerides. To ensure the data was all the more compelling and germane, the researchers trimmed down the parameters even more, allowing for only those tests that involved subjects laboring under the effects of metabolic syndrome or type 2 diabetes. In these cases possible negative effects to the heart would prove particularly relevant. The meta-analysis revealed that turmeric and curcumin had positive effects to impart on the levels of serum triglycerides apparent in its user-subjects. The two components also positively impacted the low-density lipo-protein cholesterol levels of the user-subjects. The researchers theorized that positive chemical activity was initiated by the components, thereby causing the beneficial aspects. Other cholesterol and lipid markers were not affected. In general, turmeric and curcumin have been shown to limit oxidative stress and inflammation as well as benefit the blood vessel lining, all of which can prevent a serious cardiac event.

Key Takeaways:

  • There are a lot of effective ways in which you can help lower your high cholesterol.
  • There are plenty of natural remedies out there that allow you to control your health.
  • These new substances are natural and have been proven to work on numerous different occasions.

"Turmeric and curcumin are two substances most known for their wide array of health benefits."

Subject: Prevent the number one cause of premature death by simply takingvitamin C





According to the data, it's been estimated that as many as half of all premature deaths are preventable, moreover that poor nutritional intake is at the core of the problem. One such nutritional deficit that could lower the number of premature deaths is the deficit of vitamin C. Vitamin C is a well-known immune system booster. However, it also has an important role to fulfill when it comes to cardiovascular health. The journal of the American College of Nutrition recently attests to this fact. The journal reported findings that agreed that the use of vitamin C reduced the incidence of cardiac disease. The findings were based on a study of over 100 men, many of whom were smokers. Those given the highest dosage of vitamin C slashed their risk for cardiac complications by more than half. Danish research further augments this aspect of vitamin C. Data pools acquired from 100,000+ Danes showed high vitamin C concentrations among those who regularly consumed a large array of fruits and vegetables. This higher level was auspiciously linked with a lowered risk of cardiovascular disease and premature death.

Key Takeaways:

  • Long accumulated data strongly suggests that up to half of all early deaths are preventable.
  • Vitamin C has a profound effect on coronary heart disease, and it has protective ability even when the vitamin C user is a smoker.
  • One recent study which supports this contention used 108 different male subjects, many of whom smoked.

"The reality is that an inexpensive vitamin supplement could reduce the rate of coronary heart disease but mainstream medicine is so deeply entrenched in pharmaceutical dogma, the idea that nutrients can prevent disease is downright blasphemous."

Resveratrol improves the efficacy of paclitaxel in treating liver cancer

A recent study done to test the effectiveness of the natural cancer inhibitor paclitaxel with a plant-based polyphenol resveratrol showed to be effective. Supported by the Central South University, paclitaxel improved the human liver cancer cells resulting in limited amounts of cancer fighting substances. The resveratrol's that were given improved the cancer fighting opponents of the paclitaxel. Various tests were given that showed cell growth, cellular apoptosis, mRNA expression, and protein expression in cancer patients. Longer use of this resulted in decreased development in cell growth.

Key Takeaways:

  • The amount of people who have come forth saying that this resveratrol can work is amazing.
  • People who are suffering need a new level of hope for combating the nasty disease.

The powerful neuroprotective properties of curcumin revealed in science study: Stunning 30 percent improvement in memory

The component found in turmeric that gives the spice its brightly colored appearance is also directly responsible for helping enhance and preserve our neurological development. When given in doses of 90 mg each day, turmeric was shown to help improve memory in those who were suffering from some level of memory loss. The cognitive improvement is due to turmeric being high in curcumin, which makes it a natural aid in alleviating many cognitive deficiencies that happen due to age.

Key Takeaways:

  • Often overshadowed by it's anti-inflammatory characteristics, Turmeric is also a potent neuroprotector.
  • Research has shown that the main ingredient, curcumin, can improve memory.
  • A recent study found that participants given curcumin daily had a 30% improvement in their memory tests and PET scans showed improved signaling in the brain.

"The participants were randomly assigned to a placebo group or a control that took 90 milligrams a day of curcumin twice a day over the course of year and a half. Researchers measured everyone’s curcumin levels in their blood at the trial’s inception and conclusion."

What You Should Know About CBD Oil

All marijuana strands have two components within them: THC and CBD. THC is the component that has psychoactive effects on those who consume it, but CBD carries the benefits of marijuana without those psychoactive side effects. It has been shown to work well in epileptic patients, along with those who suffer from a long list of other medical ailments. Unfortunately, the tests done to prove these claims were all pre-clinical, which means they were not tested on humans instead of mice and test tubes.

Key Takeaways:

  • All strands of cannabis include over 100 forms of cannabinoids, many of which we have not studied as much as THC.
  • There are over 23,000 scientific papers that support research showing how CBD oil helps medical conditions.
  • CBD oil can also cause changes in appetite, and some other troublesome symptoms such as diarrhea.

"THC can affect the CB1 receptors, and it’s responsible for weed’s high. CBD is a little more complicated; it can affect both types of receptors, but often in indirect ways. The exact mechanisms aren’t fully understood."

High amounts of fluoride can be harmful to the development in children, especially in the prenatal stage of development. Most people get fluoride from their public water. Fluoride is added to water to aid in dental health. Studies have been done in Mexico that links high levels of fluoride intake affect the babies' development. China has also reported a similar study in the past that had similar outcomes. Constant excessive intake of fluoride also can cause yellowing of teeth and skeletal fluorosis.

Key Takeaways:

  • Prenatal exposure to toxins are more detrimental to the child than postnatal exposure.
  • In the United States, the majority of the population are exposed to fluoride when drinking water; therefore, some cities are not partaking in the fluoridation of drinking water.
  • Although the studies show neurological consequences of children's IQ with the high intake of fluoride, fluoride intake can be beneficial with a limited amount.

"The study found a drop in scores on intelligence tests for every 0.5 milligram-per-liter increase in fluoride exposure beyond 0.8 milligrams per liter found in urine."

Type 1 diabetes differs from type 2. First of all it is not caused by obesity or an outside factor. It is often gentic. If your parent has it you may also get it. Even children can get it. It can be controlled but first has to be diagnosed. Here are some signs to look for which might tell you you have it. If you think you do go to a doctor as soon as you can for tests.

Key Takeaways:

  • Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that causes the pancreas to stop producing insulin. People need insulin to convert food to energy.
  • There is no way to prevent or cure type 1 diabetes, the best thing that can be done is be aware of the symptoms.
  • There are several symptoms that may indicate you have Type 1 diabetes such as frequent urination, increased thirst, and unexplained weight loss.

Subject: Is Inflammation Bad For You Or Good For You?





Systemic inflammation can be a mixed bag. On the one hand, inflammation can help you during a period of injury. On the other inflammation can indicate that you are high risk for a variety of illnesses including heart disease. A test for C-reactive protein can be valuable in determining inflammation in your system, but one must be cautious as it cannot tell you what is causing said inflammation. To deal with excessive systemic inflammation, a healthy program of diet and exercise can be very helpful

Key Takeaways:

  • One theory is that "bad" cholesterol deposits injure blood vessel walls, setting off an inflammatory response that can lead to the formation of blood clots that cause heart attacks.
  • But the blood test for the hs-CRP marker isn't specific, which means it can tell you there's inflammation going on, but not why it's happening
  • For a healthy person with no troubling symptoms or heart disease risk factors, it's not clear what a test to measure inflammation would add to the lifestyle advice you already know to follow

"Chronic, low-level inflammation seems to play a role in a host of diseases, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's, cancer and even depression. And even though the science on inflammation and disease is far from settled, tests and treatments are being promoted that claim to reduce that risk."

Most people from America get enough iodine, even if they do not use any iodized salt in their meals. They have a very small risk for having an iodine deficiency, which can lead to them getting goiters.

Key Takeaways:

  • While statistics indicate that most US citizens are iron sufficient, some pregnant women are at risk and could need supplementation.
  • Though iodine is used in some cow feeds and as a wash for cow udders, the concentration is considered mild and harmless.
  • An unlikely source of iodine, dairy, exists, because iodine is present in soil, which yields grass, in turn consumed by cows and therefore present in milk.

Could you be pressured into submitting to genetic testing in the near future? A proposed piece of legislation could alter the 2008 law that protects us from mandatory genetic testing and or discrimination based on the results of such tests. The proposed changes get around the 2008 law by linking predictive tests to wellness programming and declaring wellness programs exempt from the prior rules. Bioethics experts believe that your genetic health Is nobody’s business and others point out that wellness programs have failed to produce proven results or savings.

Key Takeaways:

  • The "Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act" could eliminate patients' privacy protection that were established in 2008 under the Genetic Information Non Discrimination Act.
  • The new bill could make genetic test information available to employers as part of a wellness program.
  • Genetic tests have limited accuracy. Just because a patient has a genetic marker for a disease does not mean he or she will ever develop the disease.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a blanket term for a number of diseases including Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis. Symptoms of IBD vary, but may include diarrhea, fever, fatigue and stools containing blood, pus or mucus. Diagnosis of IBD is usually made before the age of 30, with those of Caucasian or Ashkenazi Jewish heritage most commonly afflicted. Tests to confirm an IBD diagnosis may include stool sample analysis, blood tests and endoscopic procedures. While it cannot be cured, IBD treatment focuses on symptoms and reduction of disease flare-ups. Such treatment can include medication, dietary changes, increasing intake of water and stress management. In rare instances, surgery may be needed.

Subject: 10 Health Benefits of Drinking Dandelion Tea





It may be the arch nemesis of a yard savvy homeowner, but dandelions aren’t without their redeeming qualities. As a matter of fact, these weeds are commonly used in folk medicine, and have been for quite some time. When people talk about dandelion tea, they are largely talking about one of two different beverages: an infusion made of the plant’s leaves, or one made of roasted dandelion roots. Both are considered safe and are used for a variety of purposes

Key Takeaways:

  • The truth of it is dandelion tea has a number of health benefits that are worth checking out. Dandelions are full of vitamins and minerals that are great for you as well.
  • According to SELF Nutrition Data, dandelion leaves and roots are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins A and K.
  • The benefits of dandelion tea require more research-based evidence as most tests have been performed on animals and not humans. However, most benefits are based on the properties and nutritional facts of dandelion and human experiences as this weed has been consumed by humans for ages.

"Dandelions are full of vitamins and minerals that are great for you as well."

Subject: How rooibos can protect you against the sun





Rooibos tea is a versatile drink. Researchers have determined it can undo some of the damage caused by harmful rays of the sun. Scientists have been studying how rooibos protects against inflammation of skin cells for the past eleven years. Rooibos extracts are able to remove precancerous damaged cells and block the beginning of inflammation after the skin has been exposed to the sun’s ultra-violet rays. There are more tests that must be done before an after sun exposure product will be available for purchase.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers believe that rooibos tea can undo some of the damage caused by the sun’s harmful rays.
  • Preliminary findings show that rooibos extracts are more effective during the early stages of skin cancer development, as they are able to facilitate the removal of UVB damaged cells, thereby delaying their development into a tumour.
  • It’s the abundance of polyphenols (antioxidants) – natural compounds found in rooibos – that give it its restorative power. These compounds are linked with the prevention of various chronic disorders, including skin cancer.

"About 80 per cent of sun-induced skin damage occurs before the age of 18, therefore it is imperative to take special care of children in the sun."

Subject: Tired? Weak? You're not 'just getting old'; something is wrong





When we start feeling rundown and tired, we tend to make jokes about getting old. The truth is, however, that feelings of depression and fatigue are not normal aging side effects. If these feelings are longer than expected, a consultation with a doctor is in order. You know your body best. If something doesn’t feel right, don’t try to pass it off as aging. There are many factors, medical and physical, that can cause signs of fatigue, depression, change of appetite, and weakness. Only a doctor can order the tests that can tell you the exact reason, so don’t hesitate.

Key Takeaways:

  • When Dr. Christopher Callahan examines older patients, he often hears a similar refrain.
  • This fatalistic stance relies on widely-held but mistaken assumptions about what constitutes normal aging
  • Instead, they're a signal that something is wrong and a medical evaluation is in order.

"If you suddenly find your thinking is cloudy and your memory unreliable, if you're overcome by dizziness and your balance is out of whack, if you find yourself tossing and turning at night and running urgently to the bathroom, don't chalk it up to normal aging."

Subject: Even teethers labeled BPA-free may contain hormone-disruptors





A recent report in the journal Environmental Science and Technology states that 59 different teething devices they tested all came up positive for BPA, which is a known endocrine-disrupting chemical. They also found other dangerous chemicals present in some, but this is one of the most concerning. These chemicals disrupt normal hormone function and can cause abnormal growth and development in children. The real problem is that all of the products were marked as BPA-free. Obviously, stronger measures need to be put in place to make sure companies are properly advertising their products.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some baby teething toys marketed as non-toxic might contain chemicals that could interfere with hormones involved in normal growth and development, a study suggests.
  • All of the products tested positive for one such chemical, bisphenol-A (BPA), even though most of the teethers were marketed as BPA-free, researchers report in the journal Environmental Science and Technology.
  • In animal studies, endocrine-disrupting compounds such as BPA, parabens and antimicrobials have been shown to interfere with hormones and have harmful developmental, reproductive and neurological effects.

"In lab tests for the current study, researchers found BPA as well as a range of different parabens and the antimicrobials triclosan and triclocarban in most of the teethers."

Subject: 5 Sure Fire Ways to Know if You Have Hashimoto’s





Hashimoto’s disease is a hypothyroid disorder that is caused by an immune attack on your thyroid. This leads to a generally fatigued and weak feeling that persists longer than expected. It can also affect the health of your hair, your weight, and how you respond to cold environments. So, if you have been feeling rundown for a while and just generally down in the dumps with any of the other above symptoms, it may be time to talk to your doctor to get tested.

Key Takeaways:

  • A tipping point occurs when thyroid gland tissue can no longer produce thyroid hormones.
  • As your thyroid gland weakens, symptoms gradually appear. At first, you may feel tired without reason. You might even wake up tired.
  • If you complain to your doctor about fatigue – the main symptom of hypothyroidism – you will likely get clinical screening tests for anemia and hypothyroidism.

"Hashimoto’s is the most common autoimmune thyroid disorder. For a variety of reasons, your immune system sets out to attack your thyroid gland. Over time, the thyroid gland is slowly destroyed"

Want to know why you have join pain? Maybe you are sore? Well when C-reactive protein levels are high in the body there is increased inflammation in the body, which can cause many problems. Your doctor can test the levels in your blood through a simple blood test, it's worth it.

Key Takeaways:

  • Your doctor may check your C-reactive protein level treatment for infections or for other medical conditions.
  • A simple blood test measures C-reactive protein. Some researchers think that treating people with high C-reactive protein levels will lessen their risk of heart attack or stroke.
  • However, according to the American Heart Association, this test isn't recommended for general screening for heart disease.

"A high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) test, which is more sensitive than a standard test, also can be used to evaluate your risk of developing coronary artery disease, a condition in which the arteries of your heart are narrowed. Coronary artery disease can eventually lead to a heart attack."

If you could find out your approximate age of death, would you want to do so? Soon to be available in the U.K , the test measures the length of telomeres, a DNA structure which controls the longevity of dividing cells. The shorter the telomere, the faster you are aging. A very specific blood test can determine telomere length and, based on the length can use an algorithm to assess longevity based on current lifestyle.

Key Takeaways:

  • New research published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal this week, examined the association between three types of inflammatory biomarkers and the five-year mortality of more than 6,500 people.
  • The biomarkers in question are called interleukin-6 (IL-6), C-reactive protein (CRP) and alpha1-acid glycoprotein (AGP). They all measure inflammation in the body and their levels can be determined through blood tests.
  • The latest study determined that increased levels of all three biomarkers were associated, to some degree, with an increased risk of dying within five years of the blood test. It also concluded that CRP and IL-6 biomarkers were better predictors of death than AGP.

"There is growing evidence that a simple blood test could determine your risk of dying in five years."

Subject: Insights on the link between kidney damage and cognitive impairment





A recent study has found that patients with kidney disease are at a higher risk of having impaired cognitive function. The reason for the connection is unknown. The main indicators of cognitive impairment were increased albuminuria and lowered glomerular filtration rate. When these values got worse in patients, their brain function was found to be more impaired.

Key Takeaways:

  • People with kidney disease are at high risk of cognitive impairment, but the nature of this relationship remains uncertain.
  • After adjusting for various demographic and clinical characteristics, higher albumin in the urine, which is indicative of poor kidney function, was linked with worse performance on tests of global cognitive function, executive function, memory, and attention.
  • Lower estimated glomerular filtration rate, another indicator of poor kidney function, was linked with worse performance on tests of global cognitive function and memory.

"The findings cement the association between kidney damage and cognitive functioning, suggesting that albumin in the urine and changes in brain structure are likely both representations of the same vascular process, just in different organs,"

How protein-rich diets help lose weight

Subject: How protein-rich diets help lose weight





Many researchers have started focusing on the effect certain foods have on weight and metabolism. One such study involves determining how proteins help with weight loss. What they found is that phenylalanine is released when protein is broken down, which then causes the body to release hormones that tell our bodies that they are full. In contrast, low protein diets allow another hormone to be released in excess that tells us we are hungry. This research could someday lead to medications being developed that will help with the growing obesity epidemic.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lower estimated glomerular filtration rate, another indicator of poor kidney function, was linked with worse performance on tests of global cognitive function and memory.
  • A better understanding of the mechanism by which protein diets cause weight loss could lead to the development of drugs and diets that tackle the growing obesity epidemic.
  • In contrast, high levels of the hormone GLP-1 tell us when we have had enough food and tell our bodies to stop eating.

"the precise mechanisms by which phenylalanine suppresses appetite and body weight still need to be determined, and there are likely to be additional mechanisms which are also involved in the beneficial effects of a high protein diet."

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."

Gut bacteria unleash anti-aging power of pomegranates

Subject: Gut bacteria unleash anti-aging power of pomegranates





Pomegranates may hold a more significant role than just tasting delicious. There are studies underway that aim to prove the anti-aging benefits of the fruit. It is believed that the breakdown of pomegranate in the gut causes a release of urolithin A, which in turn boosts the cells’ ability to clean up after itself. Without the buildup of mitochondrial matter that happens without urolithin A, the body doesn’t age as quickly.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers reveal a fascinating result of the co-evolution of plants, bacteria, and animals over millions of years. They show the compound enables muscle cells in animals to protect themselves against one of the major causes of aging.
  • As we age, an important process that our cells rely on for energy slows down and begins to malfunction. This process - called "mitophagy" - recycles worn-out mitochondria, the tiny powerhouses inside cells that make the chemical units of energy that fuel their work.
  • The researchers then repeated the tests with rodents. They found, like they did with the worms, that urolithin A led to a significant reduction in faulty mitochondria. Also, older mice - around 2 years old - showed 42 percent better endurance while running than other mice of the same age that had not been exposed to the compound.

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."

Subject: Must Read Facts About Your Thyroid Hormone and Iodine

The thyroid is that butterfly-shaped gland found in front of the neck area, only a little lower than the Adam's apple. It's the organ responsible for your body's metabolism, the process related to how you burn up calories. The thyroid gland makes use of iodine to produce thyroid hormone. That's the chemical substance released into the bloodstream to perform the metabolic functions of the thyroid. With inadequate thyroid hormones, your body produces less energy, slowing down metabolism. Without iodine, the thyroid is unable to produce thyroid hormones. 

Hypothyroidism

Sometimes, the thyroid slows down, causing a common disease, we all know as hypothyroidism.  It's simply the case when an insufficient amount of thyroid hormones is manufactured by the thyroid gland.  It is usually diagnosed through blood tests that check hormone levels.

Thyroid Gland

Signs of Hypothyroidism

If you have a slow thyroid or underactive thyroid disease (another name of Hypothyroidism), you may observe one of the following signs.  However, know that these symptoms may mimic other health problems which makes it more difficult to diagnose.

  • Irregular menstrual period
  • Constipation
  • Anxiety; depression
  • Having dry skin, dry hair and hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Being sensitive to cold temperature
  • Slow heart rate
  • Having a swollen thyroid gland (goiter)
  • Having weight problems (either quickly gain weight or having difficulty in losing weight)
  • Suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome (pain, tingling and numb sensations in the hand)

How to Avoid Hypothyroidism

One of the causes of the thyroid to slow down is having too little iodine in your diet. Remember, iodine is the required component to produce thyroid hormones.  And our body doesn't have iodine.  Thus, it should come from an external source, that is, through the foods we eat.  You need to boost up iodine in your diet. Use only iodized salt when seasoning food.  As much as possible, also eat shellfish, dairy products, eggs, saltwater fishes, seaweeds and other saltwater edible food.
