This study aimed to determine the extent to which alcohol use affects insomnia symptoms and vice versa in adults reporting symptoms of chronic pain. Participants were 73 individuals (93% women) reporting alcohol use in addition to symptoms of insomnia and chronic pain. They completed daily diaries assessing insomnia symptoms and alcohol use for 14 days. Multilevel modelling was used to evaluate the bidirectional associations between alcohol use and insomnia symptoms at the daily level. Consistent with laboratory‐based research, alcohol use was associated with decreased sleep‐onset latency the same night but increa...

CONCLUSIONS: Despite the various caveats, circadian genes do appear to modulate drug use disorders; hence, molecules comprising the circadian system represent potential therapeutic agents, and we present a limited discussion of this interesting possibility. Future work using suitably powered large clinical samples in genome-wide association studies will identify additional molecules as well as functional pathways, and possibly new therapies.

Love hurts, but a breakup can be agony—even beyond the emotional pain. If you’ve gone through a highly emotional split, researchers say your immune system can take a significant hit. “Breaking up with a partner leaves people feeling blue and lonely, even when it’s something they wanted,” says Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, a professor of psychiatry and director of the Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research at Ohio State University. “Time heals wounds, and people recover, but the time course for recovery is related to how much a person continues to be preoccupied with thoughts of their former...

Li et al. evaluated the associations of alcohol consumption, tobacco smoking, hypertension, obesity, depression and sleep duration with coronary heart disease (CHD) development among patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) with special reference to the gender differences [1]. By logistic regression analysis, the odds ratios (ORs) (95% confidence intervals (CIs)) of female, older age (>=65), past smoking, long sleep duration, hypertension, and high cholesterol level were 0.51 (0.35-0.74), 1.95 (1.36-2.79), 1.76 (1.22-2.52), 1.7 (1.05-2.77), 3.49 (2.31-5.29) and 1.76 (1.25-2.48), respectively.

Conclusions: We classified p,p′-DDT and p,p′-DDE as “presumed” to be obesogenic for humans, based on a moderate level of primary human evidence, a moderate level of primary in vivo evidence, and a moderate level of supporting evidence from in vivo and in vitro studies. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP527 Received: 17 May 2016 Revised: 04 May 2017 Accepted: 09 May 2017 Published: 18 September 2017 Please address correspondence to M.A. La Merrill, Dept. of Environmental Toxicology, University of California, Davis, 1 Shields Ave., 4245 Meyer Hall, Davis, CA 95616-5270 USA.

Abstract PROBLEM: Chronic diseases and conditions (e.g., heart diseases, stroke, arthritis, and diabetes) are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the United States. These conditions are costly to the U.S. economy, yet they are often preventable or controllable. Behavioral risk factors (e.g., excessive alcohol consumption, tobacco use, poor diet, frequent mental distress, and insufficient sleep) are linked to the leading causes of morbidity and mortality. Adopting positive health behaviors (e.g., staying physically active, quitting tobacco use, obtaining routine physical checkups, and checking blood pr...
