Is your doctor guilty of treating grain consumption?

Jennifer shared these comments about her husband’s early Wheat Belly transformation: “My husband found your site a while back while doing research into symptoms he’s been experiencing for years. After following your advice with food, the doctor visits have stopped and I have a normal husband back. “Prior to meeting him, he has always had issues with his weight and gut. He would exercise to the point of passing out and it just wouldn’t go anywhere. When I met him 5 years ago, he was jogging every night and exercising. He just couldn’t get the flabby stomach to go away and, every time the scale would budge, it would just come back. His blood pressure was always high. He sweats like crazy. He was always having frequent trips to the restroom and his body would get so swollen after meals. Not to mention the painful headaches he would get at the base of his skull. The only relief he could find was in Benadryl for the swelling. “He was tired all the time. He would lose his temper easily. Since we’ve been married in 2012, he’s been back and forth to doctors constantly. They told him he was diabetic, another said he was bipolar, another sent him to a shrink, the last one had him on so many medications to treat how he felt and medications to treat the side-effects of those pills. He saw a neurologist who did all kinds of other tests. He saw a heart doctor and an allergist. He got tired of no one really looking further into the cause...

Solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) induces the production of vitamin D (VD), but it also causes erythema and skin cancer among other diseases. The amount of UVR to get benefit and avoid harm is unknown. Some principles were proposed to provide accessible information on how to avoid overexposure to the Sun. They are (1) the Shadow Rule (SR); (2) the UV Index (UVI); and (3) the Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek, Slide (5S) steps. This work discusses these principles in the tropics, considering measurements of solar UVR, total ozone column, and cloudiness. Indeed, the SR leads to overexposures. The UVI is adequate for cloudless skies, bu...

The excess relative risk (ERR) of mortality for circulatory disease among nuclear workers was reanalyzed by taking into consideration the annual dose as the dose rate using publicly available epidemiological data of the Hanford site dedicated to the cohort study of nuclear workers in the US, the UK, and Canada. Values of the dose rate (cut-points) were chosen at 2 mSv y−1 intervals from 2 to 40 mSv y−1, and risk estimates were made for 32,988 workers, considering the doses accumulated below and above each cut-point to have different effects. Similarly to that in the previous study for cancer by Sasaki et al., e...

The Radiation and Nuclear Countermeasures Program at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) mandated that medical countermeasures for treating Acute Radiation Syndrome (ARS) must have efficacy when administered at least 24 h after radiation exposure. At this time point, many cells within key target tissues, such as the hematopoietic system and the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, will already be dead. Therefore, drugs that promote the regeneration of surviving cells may improve outcomes. The serine/threonine kinase glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) regulates stem and progenitor cell self-renewal and...

Conclusions: For the studied children, the use of traditional BMI references may result in the overestimation of underweight and underestimation of overweight and obesity. Studies should be carried out with periodic updates, respecting the characteristics of each location in order to use BMI reference values to classify the nutritional status of children and adolescents.RESUMO Objetivo: Determinar novos valores de refer ência do índice de massa corporal (IMC) para a classificação do estado nutricional de crianças de seis a 10 anos da cidade de Montes Claros (MG) Brasil.

Conclusions: Patients with hematologic tumors had an increase in body weight, height, and fat mass, which was not identified in the solid tumor group. The positive correlation between anthropometry (triceps skinfold thickness and arm muscle circumference), deuterium oxide dilution, and bioelectric impedance analysis shows the applicability of anthropometry in clinical practice.RESUMO Objetivo: Verificar mudan ças no estado nutricional de crianças com câncer antes e após o tratamento quimioterápico e avaliar a correlação entre diluição de óxido de deut&eac...

AbstractDespite tremendous progress in understanding the pathobiology of astrocytoma, major gaps remain in our knowledge of the molecular basis underlying the aggressiveness of high-grade astrocytoma (glioblastoma - GBM). Recently, we and others have shown nuclear respiratory factor 1 (NRF1) transcription factor being highly active in human cancers, but its role in astrocytoma remains unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to uncover the role of NRF1 in the progression of GBM. NRF1 has higher mRNA expression and transcription factor activity in astrocytoma compared to non-tumor brain tissue. NRF1 activity also c...

CONCLUSIONS iTRAQ is an effective technique to identify differentially expressed proteins in obese patients. The development of obesity is correlated with a series of complex elements and mutual effects. The proteins identified in this study may provide novel directions and targets for future pathological studies of obesity. PMID: 32740648 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Liu X, Gong Y Abstract Females are highly predisposed to the occurrence of migraine, a recurrent neurovascular headache disorder. Although migraine improves or disappears during pregnancy, a significant association between migraine and hypertension (i.e., pre-eclampsia) or vascular complications (i.e., stroke) during gestation has been determined. Low-dose aspirin exerts an antithrombotic effect and can improve vascular resistance by regulating endothelial function, which are implicated in the pathogenesis of migraine, pre-eclampsia, and other vascular complications during pregnancy. Low-dose aspirin is wi...
