Worse than liquor for your liver

Most people think liver disease only happens to alcoholics. But the truth is that being overweight or obese actually puts you at a much higher risk for liver damage than alcohol. In fact, alcohol contributes to only 6% of liver damage. But obesity contributes to 52% of liver disease. And if you’re obese, you’re 400% more likely to develop liver damage than a normal-weight individual.1 That’s why about 30% of people in America have some form of chronic fatty liver disease. It’s called non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD causes painful swelling and scarring of the liver.  And I blame modern food companies. Our food supply is now drenched in Big Agra’s high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Just like alcohol, HFCS is toxic to the liver. Unlike other sugars it goes straight to your liver. It doesn’t go into your muscles and tissues for energy. It promotes the formation of new fat molecules. It triggers your liver cells to store this fat where it doesn’t belong. Our food is also loaded with bad fats, chemicals, preservatives and additives that are very hard for your liver to metabolize.  All these toxins inflame your liver and give you NAFLD. But it gets worse…  NAFLD can progress an even more deadly form known as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). About 10% to 30% of NAFLD patients develop NASH. And they are more likely to die from their liver disease. NASH can progress to hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver cancer...

Authors: Musio F Abstract INTRODUCTION: Anemia has and will continue to be a central theme in medicine particularly as clinicians are treating a burgeoning population of complex multi-organ system processes. As a result of multiple randomized controlled trials (RCTs), meta-analyses, and societal recommendations overly restrictive paradigms and under-administration of erythropoiesis stimulating agents (ESAs) have likely been followed by clinicians among all specialties. AREAS COVERED: A review of anemia in the context of chronic kidney disease, hematologic malignancies and cancer is presented with focus on the e...

Authors: Zhang W, Xu JZ, Lu XH, Li H, Wang D, Wang JG Abstract PURPOSE: We hypothesise that dietary sodium intake interacts with serum uric acid to influence blood pressure (BP) in children and adolescents. In the present study, we investigated ambulatory BP in relation to hyperuricaemia, dietary sodium intake and their interaction in children and adolescents with hypertension. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  A total of 616 study participants were 10-24 years old and had primary hypertension diagnosed after admission in a specialised inpatient ward. Ambulatory BP monitoring was performed during hospitalisat...

Authors: Matti B, Zargar-Shoshtari K Abstract Prostate cancer represents a significant health burden worldwide. The cancer incidence had substantially increased since the introduction of prostate specific antigen (PSA) in cancer screening. This had led to considerable debates among health professionals and epidemiologists, since PSA as a screening tool seemed to be far from perfect. In New Zealand, the controversy was quite prominent in the last three decades, with some advocating the benefits of screening, while others concerned regarding the risk of harms. With the absence of an organised screening programme and ...

CONCLUSIONS: Considering the low number of university students disclosing sexual assaults to health professionals or support services, the results of this survey suggest more work is needed to facilitate greater disclosures to health professionals enabling victims to access the services they need regardless of alcohol use.

CONCLUSION: This study found that childhood cancer survivors in New Zealand had a high prevalence of developmental dental abnormalities and it identified potential risk factors related to their cancer treatment. Inequitable access to oral rehabilitation for this patient group argues for a mechanism for consistent improved access to publicly funded dental care across district health boards in New Zealand.

This study investigated the factors associated with the nutritional status of school children in a rural municipality in Cebu, Philippines. Children aged 6-12 years (n = 327) and their parents were asked to participate. Children's anthropometric measurements were taken in schools, while interviews and measurements of parents were conducted at home. Children's nutritional status was assessed using height-for-age (HAZ) and weight-for-age (WAZ) z scores, while body mass index (BMI) was used for parents. Children's dietary patterns and physical activity, and household characteristics, such as food insecurity, eating ...
