Heavy drinking leads to heart attacks causing toxic iron to build up
Researchers from Anglia Ruskin University found women from regions where alcohol consumption is high have greater iron levels in their bodies and are more likely to die from heart issues.
CONCLUSIONS: Most participants reported having healthy life habits, which they believe influence on disease control. Among the investigated parameters, only the habit of not smoking was associated with the absence of hypertensive peaks; the other habits did not present statistical association with the comorbidities.

ConclusionsMindfulness-based CSB interventions should evaluate the benefit of increasing intentional responses towards present-moment experiences among adults with SUD. Targeting alcohol/drug misuse, negative affect, and judgment towards thoughts and emotions may be beneficial.
Conclusions: We suggest that NLR, PLR, CRP, ESR, and bilirubin can be used in clinical practice for prediction of CVT in suspected patients as they are inexpensive parameters and widely available. However, further large-scale studies are required to confirm this relationship.RESUMEN la trombosis de la vena cerebral (CVT) es una causa rara pero grave de accidente cerebrovascular agudo. La inflamaci ón es un factor etiológico hipotético en CVT. Objetivo: El objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar los niveles de marcadores inflamatorios en pacientes con CVT y compararlos con los sujetos sanos. Métodos...
CONCLUSIONS:: Consensus was reached about a set of social skills relevant to housing attainment and retention for persons with serious mental illness engaged in PSH. Next steps include modifying social skills training interventions to this skill set, making contextual modifications relevant to the setting and context of PSH, and studying the effectiveness and implementation of the adapted intervention in PSH.

Conclusions: The frequency of stomatological control examinations among students from Polish, Belarusian or Ukrainian universities is high. The frequency of dental examination among students is conditioned by sociodemographic factors. Regular check-ups at the dentist are more prevalent for women and those students from Polish or Belarusian universities who rated their financial situation as good or very good. In Belarusian or Ukrainian respondents, maintaining healthy eating habits was a positive predictor of dental check-up attendance, while in Polish students self-evaluation of health was a negative one.
In this study, poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) based mixed matrix membranes containing multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) or carboxylic multiwalled carbon nanotubes (C-MWCNTs) were produced via interfacial adhesion, hydrogen bonding or covalent bonding. The desalination performances of the synthesized membranes were compared by the pervaporation (PV) process. A PVA membrane crosslinked with maleic acid (MA) was also prepared for comparison. FESEM and TEM images indicated that the C-MWCNTs were disentangled and dispersed uniformly in the PVA matrix whereas MWCNTs without functional groups readily aggregated. The incorporation...
Two new studies say the federal and provincial governments must do more to reduce alcohol consumption after determining damages from drinking have surpassed tobacco use.
I remember my doctor telling me, 'Now, don ’t get hooked on these sweetheart,' but it was too late. I already was. This is the story of my opiate addiction.
(MedPage Today) -- Programs aim to reduce " emotional coping " with alcohol and marijuana
Publication date: Available online 20 February 2019Source: The Journal of Supercritical FluidsAuthor(s): Laís de O. Silva, Layla G. Ranquine, Mariana Monteiro, Alexandre G. TorresAbstractThe present study investigated the influence of the extraction techniques expeller pressing, alcohol-extraction and supercritical CO2 (SC-CO2) on the chemical composition, antioxidant capacity and oxidative stability of pomegranate seed oil (PSO) and determined, by experimental design, improved conditions of SC-CO2 extraction with co-solvent to obtain PSO concentrated in bioactive compounds from the seeds.
