The Top 5 Nutrients For Healthy Skin

We all want that dewy, youthful glow to our skin and there's no better way to make that happen than to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Our skin's appearance is the first thing people notice and when our skin looks good, we feel good about ourselves. To obtain beautiful skin, it begins from the inside out. Our food choices make a huge difference and when we feed ourselves the nutrients to make this happen, our skin is a reflection of that. Some of our biggest beauty concerns have to do with appearance of aging skin - wrinkles, discoloration, adult acne, and sagging skin. There are many factors that can determine how well our skin ages from genetics, environmental damage and our lifestyle choices. One of the biggest reasons for damage to our skin is a result of oxidation which is the loss of electrons during a reaction by molecules called free radicals which take electrons from healthy cells. Sun damage and cigarette smoking are two of the most damaging oxidative stressors our skin is exposed to. If you've never smoked - good for you but if you currently do so, there is no better time than now to quit smoking for the health of your skin among other reasons. Always wear sunscreen every day to protect skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays. Another lifestyle habit we must embrace if we want to protect our skin is to eat a diet rich in antioxidants. These powerful substances found mostly in fresh fruits and vegetables, help prevent or stop cell damage caused by oxidants. They al...

Abstract PURPOSE: The occurrence of upper extremity lymphedema after regional nodal irradiation (RNI) for breast cancer treatment varies significantly based on patient and treatment factors. The relationship between the radiation therapy (RT) field design and lymphedema risk is not well-characterized. The present study sought to correlate the variations in RT field design with lymphedema outcomes. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Women with stage II-IV breast cancer receiving RNI after breast surgery that included sentinel lymph node biopsy or axillary dissection were identified. Their arm circumference was measured be...

In this study, we investigate the potential phosphorylation-induced structural changes for DNA polymerase β using molecular dynamics simulations. The simulations show drastic conformational changes of the polymerase structure as a result of S44 phosphorylation. Phosphorylation-induced conformational changes transform the closed (active) enzyme structure into an open one. Further analysis of the results points to a key hydrogen bond and newly formed salt bridges as potential drivers of these structural fluctuations. The changes observed with S55/44 and S55 phosphorylation were less dramatic and the integrity of the H-b...

This article describes the scope and quality of evidence related to exercise interventions to improve sleep in women with breast cancer. Fifteen studies met the criteria and 12 were judged to be excellent quality. The most frequent intervention was walking, primarily during the time of chemotherapy. Eleven studies reported postintervention improvement in sleep deficiency. Most yoga, qigong, and dance intervention studies reported no differences between groups. Emerging evidence exists for the effectiveness of aerobic exercise to improve various sleep outcomes in women with breast cancer. PMID: 30098755 [PubMed - in process]

(University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus) A study published today in JAMA Dermatology combines the prevalence of skin diseases around the world with their likelihood of creating disability across the lifespan to define the following 10 most challenging conditions (arranged in order of decreasing 'disability-adjusted life years'): dermatitis, acne, hives, psoriasis, viral skin diseases, fungal skin diseases, scabies, melanoma, pyoderma, cellulitis, non-melanoma skin cancer, decubitus ulcer, and alopecia areata.
