Disturbing discovery: Replacing old water pipes with NEW pipes causes the unleashing of toxic lead and other heavy metals

(Natural News) The country’s aging water infrastructure was thrust into the spotlight when the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, entered full swing a few years ago. This left many people questioning whether their water was also at risk. If you have lead in your drinking water, replacing the pipes might seem like the most obvious...

Abstract ObjectivesTo evaluate how oral and general health‐risk behaviours cluster among Brazilian adolescents. MethodsThe study comprised a total of 109 104 adolescents (52.2% female) participating in the Brazilian National School‐based Student Health Survey (PeNSE). Seventeen behaviours (including diet; oral and hand hygiene; frequency of dental visits; tobacco, alcohol and drug use; sexual behaviour; physical activity, and risk for external causes) were measured using a self‐reported questionnaire. Pairwise correlations between the health‐risk behaviours were performed, and clustering was assessed by the hierarc...

METHODS: Overall, 168 adult patients with mTBI from the prospective...

CONCLUSIONS: Accordingly, we demonstrate the potential of mammalian hair follicles serving as an additional source for biomarker discovery and for diagnosing mTBI with high accessibility. PMID: 29157017 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Mercier E, Tardif PA, Cameron PA, Émond M, Moore L, Mitra B, Ouellet MC, Frenette J, de Guise E, Le Sage N Abstract BACKGROUND: This systematic review aimed to determine the prognostic value of neuron-specific enolase (NSE) to predict post-concussion symptoms following mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). METHODS: Seven databases were searched for studies evaluating the association between NSE levels and post-concussion symptoms assessed ≥ 3 months (persistent) or ≥ 7 days

CONCLUSION: Pre-injury psychosocial and demographic factors may be more important than injury severity for predicting some long-term functional outcomes post-TBI. It would likely be beneficial to assess these factors in the inpatient setting, with input from a multidisciplinary team, as an early understanding of prognostic indicators can help guide treatment for optimal functional outcomes.

CONCLUSION: Young patients reported psychological problems in several areas during the chronic phase of injury, which may hinder complete reintegration and participation in society. Larger functional improvement during sub-acute rehabilitation seemed to be associated with less psychological problems in the chronic phase. PMID: 29156990 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

OBJECTIVE: We aimed at determining if patients diagnosed at an early stage (
