Maybe the healthiest wine in the world

When I was in South Africa last year, I met a revolutionary winemaker… His wine was completely organic. It had no toxins, and it contained powerful antioxidant properties. It was infused with a local herb called rooibos, also known as “red bush.” You may have seen rooibos tea on supermarket shelves. I immediately knew this wine should be made widely available in America — and I’m still hopeful a distributor will bring it here. I enjoy a nice glass of red wine from time to time, but the trouble with most of the wines sold in America is that they’re loaded with dangerous chemicals. Winemaking was once a very simple process. You would pick wild grapes, mash them and leave them to ferment for a while. You wouldn’t add anything. The result was a low-alcohol beverage rich in antioxidants with real health benefits. Even your primal ancestors used fermented fruit juice — for medicine as well as for enjoyment. But the wine in your glass today is much different from your ancestor’s traditional brew. Modern producers now doctor their wines to get a standard, predictable beverage that can be produced and sold at low cost. But there is a big problem: Almost 80 chemical additives have been approved in the U.S. for making wine — yet only 38 of these substances have been determined to be safe. Common wine additives include: Sulfur dioxide. Low levels of sulfites occur naturally in fermented grape juice. But winemakers often add su...

Authors: Jungels C, Martinez Chanza N, Albisinni S, Mercier M, d'Haene N, Rorive S, Roumeguère T Abstract OBJECTIVES: There are only few predictive factors for response of non-musculo-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) to Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) therapy. Our study analyzed the results of the sequencing of new generation (NGS) targeted on 50 genes of oncological interest obtained on bladder resection parts in high-risk NMIBC patients treated with BCG, to describe this population from a molecular point of view and try to correlate these results in patients who present or not recurrence after BCG. ...

CONCLUSIONS: A high adiponectin level could predict an increase in FM% and a decrease in LBM% during a 3-year follow-up in PD patients. Serum adiponectin could not independently predict mortality in PD patients. PMID: 29674409 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) is already used for enantioseparation in the pharmaceutical industry, but it is rarely used for the separation of chiral pesticides. Comparing with high performence liquid chromatography, SFC uses much more environmnetal friendly and economic mobile phase, supercritical CO2 . In our work, the enantioseparation of an amide herbicide, napropamide, using three different polysaccharide-type chiral stationary phases (CSPs) in SFC was investigated. By studying the effect of different CSPs, organic modifiers, temperature, back-pressure regulator pressures, and flow rates ...

Ultrasound technique overcomes problems with current methods to diagnose the most common cancer in menScientists have announced the development of a highly accurate and reliable technique for diagnosing prostate cancer. The Dundee University-based team say they have used an ultrasound process called shear wave elastography (SWE) to detect prostate tumours. The method is non-invasive and cheaper than current detection techniques.Prostate cancer has become the most common cancer in men in the UK. One in eight men will develop the condition at some point in their lives with more than 47,000 new cases being diagnosed every yea...

This article provides an up-to-date review of biomarkers with promising characteristics to be prognostic markers for CCA reported in the past 5 years. The biomarkers are sub-classified into tissue and serum markers. Proteins, RNAs, peripheral blood cells etc., that are associated with aggressive phenotypes, signal pathways, chemo-drug resistance and those that reflect the survival time of CCA patients are evaluated for their prognostic prediction values. Expert commentary: CCAs are heterogeneous tumors of different histo-pathological subtypes and genetic influences and, therefore, potential markers should be validated in l...

This article explores the public dying of journalist, writer, provocateur, public intellectual, and renowned atheist, Christopher Hitchens. It does so primarily through an analysis of television interviews given by Hitchens following his diagnosis with esophageal cancer in June 2010. Four key themes are identified as emerging from analysis of the interviews: (a) Hitchens' explicit sense of mission in challenging myths and superstitions surrounding cancer, dying, and death; (b) the personal experience of terminal illness and dying and the particular way (or style of dying) by which it is approached; (c) issues of regret and...

We think nothing of sharing personal information with tech giants so why are we so suspicious about our health records?Half of us born after 1960 will be told we havecancer at some point in our lives. Virtually no one will go through life untouched by the disease, whether as a sufferer, a survivor or supporter. So every year, millions of us lace up running shoes, bake cakes and cultivate moustaches in memory of loved ones to raise the cash needed for cancer research.But money is not the only critical ingredient in developing new cures. An important constraint on the pace of progress is the lack of large datasets that conta...
