Two weeks to bowel cancer?

There’s no doubt antibiotics have saved a lot of lives. But because they’ve been overprescribed for so many years we’ve ended up with a slew of health problems. For one thing, overuse of antibiotics wreaks havoc on your microbiome… That’s your body’s ecosystem. Your microbiome has 100 trillion or so bacteria, viruses and fungi. It affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. But other good bacteria are called “probiotics.” They boost your immune system. They help you digest your food and turn it into vitamins. But in your gut, antibiotics kill off good bacteria along with the bad. When that happens, your immune system gets weak. Your risk of obesity and heart disease goes up. So do rates of allergies, asthma, autism and autoimmune diseases.1 And now shocking new research says antibiotics can even spike your risk of bowel cancer. And it can happen in just two weeks! A study in the journal Gut looked at data from 16,000 women over 60 years old. They were part of the famous Nurses Health Study.2  Results showed that taking antibiotics increased their risk of getting adenomas or polyps. These are growths on the lining of the bowel that can become cancerous. Women who took antibiotics in their 20s and 30s for as little as 15 days to two months increased their risk by up to 36%. It was worse for those who took these drugs in their 40s and 50s for longer periods of time....

The results showed that POS significantly reduced the total liver fat content and the levels of hepatic pro-inflammatory factors tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α and interleukin-6 (IL-6), while increased the level of interleukin-10 (...

ConclusionThis systematic review highlighted the potential of a goal setting technique in the asthma self-management education. However, due to the limitations of the quality and quantity of the included literature, more rigorous studies are needed. In the future, better effective study protocol combining with goal setting approach and other behavior technique is needed to further investigate.

Authors: Nafiu OO, Owusu-Bediako K, Chimbira WT Abstract BACKGROUND: Recent data among pediatric otolaryngology patients showed unexplained higher rates of serious perioperative respiratory adverse events (PRAE) in black children compared to their white peers. We evaluated whether preoperative respiratory comorbidity (PRC) burden contributes to racial disparity in serious PRAE in children undergoing non-otolaryngologic procedures. METHODS: Rates of serious PRAE (laryngospasm and/or bronchospasm) were compared across racial groups in a retrospective cohort of black and white children (N = 18538; black ...

Khaled, Mohamed F. Alajmi, Mansour S. Al-SaidAbstractThe Loranthus genus has been demonstrated to be used in the treatment of wide range of diseases e.g. diabetes, inflammations and cancers. Many species of Loranthus represent a major source of biologically active constituents. Therefore, our study was carried out to investigate the anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of Loranthus acaciae Zucc. (Loranthaceae) grown...

This study was carried out to evaluate embryotoxicity of CR decoction in vivo and in vitro, and to explore the mechanism of embryotoxicity from the perspective of bone metabolism.Materials and methodsIn animal experiments, pregnant mice were randomly assigned into 5 groups, i.e. mice were orally treated with CR decoction at dosages of 0 (distilled water, as negative controls), 2, 8, 32 g/kg/d (low, medium and high-dose group), and vitamin A (as positive controls), respectively. Maternal and embryo-fetal parameters were registered after cesarean section. The fetal skeletal development was further assessed with the alizari...

In this study, we devised a simple industrial method to manufacture lipoplex, which includes short hairpin RNA against the expression of thymidylate synthase (TS shRNA) — a key molecule for DNA biosynthesis. An aqueous solution of TS shRNA was gently mixed with either a precursor of cationic liposome (Presome DF-1) or a cationic lipid mixture in an o/w emulsion. This solution was subsequently lyophilized under optimal conditions to obtain either FD-lipoplex-1 or FD-lipoplex-2, respectively. With this method, a lipoplex in activated form was obtained via a simple “one-step” hydration with saline. Both form...

However, in France, no study has been conducted to describe the socio-demographic characteristics and survival of women with breast cancer based on their participation to mass screening. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of socio-demographic inequalities on the associ...
