Within the U.S. military, the age- and race-adjusted chlamydia infection rates among female service members are consistently higher than civilian rates, with a 20% annual acquisition rate among young active-duty women. The sequelae of chlamydia disproportionately impact women in terms of severity and cost. Untreated chlamydia progresses to pelvic inflammatory disease in 40% of cases, and is a leading cause of fallopian tube damage and pelvic adhesive disea...

In this study, a link between mitochondrial changes and infant temperament has also been suggested. Maternal psychosocial stress and lifetime trauma have been associated with decreased mitochondrial DNA copy number in the placenta (115, 116).IndividualityChronic stress links changes in the epigenetic landscape with health conditions (117). Different cell types are characterized by distinct patterns of gene expression due to developmental, environmental, physiological, and pathological reasons (117).

This article provides an overview of the latest techniques and devices used for uterine-sparing surgical treatment of fibroids. While laparoscopic myomectomy is still the gold standard, novel laparoscopic and transcervical radiofrequency ablation techniques use low-voltage and alternating current to induce heat in the uterine tissue, which triggers necrosis in fibroids. This enables the removal of multiple fibroids without the need for large incisions in the uterine wall. In addition, we address the benefits and potential risks, as well as the impact on fertility and pregnancy, of the different surgical approaches used for...

Indulge in a handful of dried prunes and you’ll have to schedule a substantial portion of your day on the toilet due to bowel irritants. But only wheat and grains are associated with a wide swath of health problems that range from autoimmune disease to m...
