Moderate and vigorous physical activity patterns among marijuana users: Results from the 2007 –2014 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys

Marijuana use has more than doubled in the last decade in the United States (US) (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 2014). Given increasing legislation supporting both medical and non-medical use of marijuana, the actual prevalence of marijuana use in the US is likely to substantially increase in coming years. Concurrently, the US is experiencing epidemic levels of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease (Roger et al., 2012), and sedentary behavior (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2014a,b).

We investigated the metabolic variation of active ingredients of ‘Hupingzao’ at different maturity stages (S1–S5) using widely targeted metabolites. In total, 406 compounds were detected, 191 were annotated by the KEGG...

Publication date: Available online 15 January 2020Source: Plant ScienceAuthor(s): Courtney P. LeisnerAbstractAnthropogenic increases in fossil fuel emissions have been a primary driver of increased concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide ([CO2]) and other greenhouse gases resulting in warmer temperatures, alterations in precipitation patterns, and increased occurrence of extreme weather events in terrestrial areas across the globe. In agricultural growing regions, alterations in climate can challenge plant productivity in ways that impact the ability of the world to sustain adequate food production for a growing and i...

These multifunctional nucleotides are also capable of preventing oxidative damages by modulating antioxidant defense systems in a variety of milieu, such as in diabetes. Although the exact molecular mechan...

Driving blood glycaemia from hyperglycaemia to euglycaemia as fast as possible while avoiding hypoglycaemia is a major problem for decades for type-1 diabetes and is solved in this study. A control algorithm is designed that guaranties hypoglycaemia avoidance for the first time both from the theory of positive systems point of view and from the most pragmatic clinical practice. The solution consists of a state feedback control law that computes the required hyperglycaemia correction bolus in real-time to safely steer glycaemia to the target. A rigorous proof is given that shows that the control-law respects the positivity ...

By DAVID INTROCASO THCB readers are well aware this coming week Senate Republicans plan to begin debate on passing their amended version of the House-passed American Health Care Act (AHCA), titled the Better Care Reconciliation Act.   As of today, June 23rd, immediate reactions by Republican senators to the June 22nd released discussion draft have been limited largely because members immediately left town after the draft’s release. The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO’s) score, that will again be influential, is expected this Monday or Tuesday. Senate debate on the legislation will likely begi...
