“ Living the Wheat Belly and Undoctored lifestyle will not rid our lives of all adversity. But it can make you stronger, more optimistic, and resilient. Here is Lonnie and Carrie’s story: “One year ago today, my life changed in unthinkable ways. I discovered the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox book and read it during my kids’ spring break. I had dabbled in the ‘paleo’ diet world a bit over the last five years with inconsistent success and had some idea about how good I felt when eliminating grains… “But the protocols in this book seemed to go further then just diet, like addr...

A brief look at the most recent death statistics from the CDC tells us that 74% of the deaths in the US are due to 10 causes: heart disease, cancer, injuries, chronic lower respiratory disease, stroke and cerebrovascular diseases, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, influenza and pneumonia, kidney disease, and suicide.1 So it comes as no surprise that many of us, as health care providers, are often consumed with treating disease, rescuing a patient from the jaws of death, and improving the quality of life for those who are afflicted by multiple comorbidities.

I recently attended the 2020 Longevity Therapeutics conference in San Francisco. I presented on the work ongoing at Repair Biotechnologies, but as is usually the case the more important parts of the visit took place outside the bounds of the conference proper. Longevity Therapeutics is one of the four or five core conferences for the longevity industry, at which you'll meet many of the early participants - a mix of scientists, entrepreneurs, and investors, and patient advocates. As such, most of the conference goers have already seen my updates, or are otherwise aware of the Repair Biotechnologies programs aimed at thymic ...

This study is registered at ClinicalTrials.gov, number NCT01864148.FindingsBetween Aug 13, 2013, and July 31, 2014, 419 patients were enrolled and randomly assigned either placebo (n=93) or opicinumab 3 mg/kg (n=45), 10 mg/kg (n=95), 30 mg/kg (n=94; one patient did not receive the assigned treatment), or 100 mg/kg (n=92). The last patient visit was on March 29, 2016. Confirmed disability improvement over 72 weeks was seen in 45 (49%) of 91 patients assigned to placebo, 21 (47%) of 45 assigned to opicinumab 3 mg/kg, 59 (63%) of 94 assigned to opicinumab 10 mg/kg, 59 (65%) of 91 assigned to opicinumab 30 mg/kg, and 36 (40%) ...

In this study, we found that cofilin competes with tau for direct microtubule binding in vitro, in cells, and in vivo, which inhibits tau-induced microtubule assembly. Genetic reduction of cofilin mitigates tauopathy and synaptic defects in Tau-P301S mice and movement deficits in tau transgenic C. elegans. The pathogenic effects of cofilin are selectively mediated by activated cofilin, as active but not inactive cofilin selectively interacts with tubulin, destabilizes microtubules, and promotes tauopathy. These results therefore indicate that activated cofilin plays an essential intermediary role in neurotoxic signaling th...

ConclusionsDespite reductions in mortality, relative (but not absolute) inequalities widened between 1981 and 2011 for all-cause mortality and for several causes of death. Reducing relative inequalities in Scotland requires faster mortality declines in deprived areas while countering increases in mortality from causes such as drug- and alcohol-related harm and male suicide.

By Susan Scutti, CNN (CNN) — Life expectancy in the United States declined from 2016 to 2017, yet the 10 leading causes of death remained the same, according to three government reports released Thursday. Increasing deaths due to drug overdoses and suicides explain this slight downtick in life expectancy, the US Centers for Disease Control says. Overdose deaths reached a new high in 2017, topping 70,000, while the suicide rate increased by 3.7%, the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics reports. Dr. Robert Redfield, CDC director, called the trend tragic and troubling. “Life expectancy give...
