Obama, Prince Harry, Angelina: Celebrities As Health Influencers
Beloved Hollywood celebrities, famous politicians or members of the British royal family: no better advertisement for fitness tracker producers and health tech companies. As models, actors and actresses are highly influential people, their early adoption of digital solutions could also push the masses towards living more healthily with technologies. On the other hand, celebrities are inclined to follow questionable health trends, too, which go against decades of medical evidence. Those examples, everyone should rather reject. Wearables conquered Hollywood, the White House, and the British royal family Celebrities are all about digital health and wellness gadgets. So much, actually, that we assume if wearables had appeared in the 1960s, Marilyn Monroe would have gone for a golden Apple Watch, while Elvis for a calorie-counting fitness tracker such as the Fitbit Flex. Now, back to the present: Prince Harry and it’s sleep tracking Oura ring was all over the (tech) news end of October. Of course, it wasn’t that widely reported as his wedding with Meghan Markle, but the technology company could still expect a surge of interest in the coming weeks. The ring measures sleep, body temperature, resting heart rate and tracks activity with an option to nudge the wearer in every hour to move 2-3 minutes. It’s an interesting choice, by the way, as celebrities rather go for wristbands. For example, former President Barack Obama has been spotted several times wearing a...
CONCLUSION: The small amount of evidence that is currently available suggests that presbycusis is underdiagnosed and under- treated in Germany. Early detection by physicians of all specialties, followed in each case by a specialized differential diagnostic evaluation, is a desirable goal. PMID: 31196393 [PubMed - in process]
The recall is only for Lot B16119A. No other products are affected. Lifestyle Evolution is voluntarily recalling one shift of NuGo Slim Crunchy Peanut Butter nutrition bars. In isolated cases, a product with milk allergen was incorrectly packaged into Slim Crunchy Peanut Butter wrappers and cartons. The NuGo Slim Crunchy Peanut Butter wrapper does not list milk as an allergen.
CONCLUSION: These findings indicate increased resistance of E. coli to ciprofloxacin in comparison with prior studies. Further research in this field will increase our knowledge and more effective exposure to the antibiotic resistance of the pathogenic microorganisms.

CONCLUSION: Drug-induced sleep endoscopy should always be used for visualisation of anatomical structures below the vocal folds in patients with a history of cervical trachea surgery. These two cases demonstrate the importance of drug-induced sleep endoscopy in planning conservative and surgical treatments, contributing significantly to operative success.

CONCLUSIONS: During antihypertensive treatment, several dermatological reactions may occur. Clinicians should inform their patients of the increased risk of cutaneous lesions associated with the use of these drugs, and perform periodic examination of the skin.

CONCLUSIONS: The traumatic aspects following the diagnosis of melanoma burst powerfully into the life of these patients, who show different reactions, also according to gender. PMID: 31195781 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Our intervention was effective, by significantly improving the participants' knowledge and by inducing significant behavioral changes. Improving the formulation of alcoholic hand rubs may be a key factor to encourage their use. Coexisting non-occupational risk behaviors are just as important in the prevention of CHE.

In this study, MCF-7 and T47D cells were treated with inhibitors of 17β-HSD1, 17β-HSD7, aromatase or steroid sulfatase (STS), then mRNA levels of 17β-HSD7, STS, 11β-HSD 2, estrogen receptors α (ERα) and androgen receptor (AR) were determined by Q-PCR. ER negative cell line MDA-MB-231 was used as a negative control. Our results demonstrate that 17β-HSD7, STS and 11β-HSD2 are all regulated by the same estrogen estradiol via ERα. When the gene of ERα (ESR1) was knocked down, there was no longer significant mutual regulation of these enzymes.Our results demonstrate that imp...
This study demonstrated promising anticancer and antibacterial effects of Artemia salina egg extracts. Our results suggest that pure bioactive compounds obtained from Artemia salina eggs can provide new insights into the mechanisms of colon and skin cancer, as well as Pseudomonas aeruginosa inhibition.
