Fish with a side of plastic?

Our ancestors thrived on eating fish fresh from the ocean. After all, fish is a pure source of protein and healthy omega-3 fats. But our modern fish supply is vastly different than anything our ancestors ate. As our oceans have become more and more polluted, so has our seafood. In fact, the fish on your dinner plate today is likely loaded with plastic trash. Let me explain… Every year, billions of pounds of plastic waste pour into our oceans and rivers. I’m talking about things like grocery bags, drinking straws, water bottles and more. It’s now estimated that up to 51 trillion pieces of plastic contaminate our oceans. In addition, millions of tiny microbeads flow into your local sewer system every day. Manufacturers add these gritty specks to face and body scrubs, shower gels, toothpaste and other personal care products. They’re too small to be filtered out of our water supply. Taking just one shower could result in 100,000 of these tiny plastic particles making their way into the ocean. This trash is carried along the ocean’s currents in massive swirls that cover about 40% of the world’s ocean surfaces. These plastics are on almost every beach in the world and the polar icecaps. And they don’t just float on the ocean’s surface. They’ve now made their way into deep sea sediments more than two miles beneath sea level. These plastic particles act like a sponge. They pick up pollution, pesticides, bacteria, che...

GCCL has exceptionally aggressive characteristics, and its prognosis is much poorer than any other NSCLCs. Herein, we present a rare case of Giant Cell Carcinoma of lung treated successfully with surgical resection and adjuvant vinorelbine and cisplatin.A 48-year-old African American man wi...

Authors: Fontana J, Zima M, Vetvicka V Abstract Numerous conditions, including cancer, diabetes, aging, and atherosclerosis, are thought to be associated with oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is defined as a persistent imbalance between oxidation and antioxidation, resulting in the damage of cellular macromolecules and is often considered to be involved in wide variety of human diseases. However, the current literature is very heterogeneous making it rather difficult to draw general conclusions. Often, different biomarkers have been used in different health problems. In addition, individual biomarkers are often m...

Conclusion: The multispot laser required fewer applications with more spots delivered to compensate for lower fluency, showing similar patient tolerance to single-spot laser. Both groups maintained the initial visual acuities and CRTs; about 50% of cases had vitreomacular interface changes and improved macular edema, with similar angiographic improvements after 12 months.Ophthalmologica

Authors: Papadia A, Gasparri ML, Wang J, Radan AP, Mueller MD Abstract The risk of lymph nodal metastases in endometrial cancer varies greatly according to the characteristics of the primary tumor. Surgical staging with a systematic lymphadenectomy in endometrial cancer is debated since three decades. On one hand, it provides important pathological information on the spread of the tumor allowing for an appropriate decision making on adjuvant treatment but on the other side it is characterized by a non negligible short and long term morbidity. In the past decades, various efforts have been made in the attempt to app...

Authors: Nasioudis D, Doulaveris G, Kanninen TT Abstract Hyperlipidemia is a known cause of atherosclerosis and directly contributes to the current epidemic in cardio-vascular disease. Pregnancy is typified by an increase in serum levels of total cholesterol and triglycerides pushed by the rise in estrogen, progesterone and lactogen. Mobilization of stored fat depots in late pregnancy may provide a reservoir of fatty acids for fetal growth and placental tissue steroid synthesis. This physiologic increase in lipids performs an essential role during pregnancy; however, elevated levels of lipids in predisposed women o...
