10 New Year ’s Resolutions Doctors Actually Want You to Make

Each year, Americans’ most popular New Year’s resolutions are more or less the same: get healthy, get organized, save money. But doctors at the American Medical Association (AMA) have some more specific thoughts in mind for 2019. The AMA this week released a list of 10 wellness-focused resolutions that could “help Americans make the most impactful, long-lasting improvements to their health in 2019.” Here’s what they are — and how to make them happen. Learn your risk for type 2 diabetes Diabetes is one of the most common chronic health conditions in the U.S., affecting an estimated 30 million Americans. But as of the CDC’s last estimate, almost a quarter of Americans who have type-2 diabetes are undiagnosed, meaning they’re not getting the care they need — and even more people may have prediabetes without knowing it. The AMA recommends taking a self-screening test at DoIHavePrediabetes.org to find out if you’re at risk. Be more physically active Most people do not meet the federal guidelines for physical activity, which say that adults should get 150 minutes of moderate or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity each week, plus twice-weekly muscle-strengthening sessions. The good news, however, is it’s easier to meet that goal than you might think. Everyday activities like walking, cleaning, dancing and taking the stairs all count toward your total, so there’s no need to slog it out at the gym if you drea...

Authors: Messaadi N, Bayen S, Beghin L, Lefebvre JM, Colleau S, Deken V, Cottencin O, Quersin F, Descamps A, Vanhelst J Abstract BACKGROUND: Screen media usage has become increasingly commonplace in daily life with children initiating themselves to screen media at an early age. Given the high prevalence of screen viewing among children worldwide, its impact on children's health has become a cause for concern. Unfortunately, little information on the independent association between sleep habits and screen time in French children is currently available. The main aim of this study was to assess possible...

Authors: Hallajzadeh J, Amirani E, Mirzaei H, Shafabakhsh R, Mirhashemi SM, Sharifi M, Yousefi B, Mansournia MA, Asemi Z Abstract Melanoma is the most lethal form of skin cancer. New technologies have resulted in major advances in the diagnosis and treatment of melanoma and other cancer types. Recently, some studies have investigated the role of circular RNAs (circRNAs) in different cancers. CircRNAs are a member of long noncoding RNA family mainly formed through back-splicing and have a closed loop structure. These molecules affect several biological and oncogenic cascades in diverse ways via acting as microRNA sp...

Authors: N Augustine T Abstract There is increasing awareness that platelets play a significant role in creating a hypercoagulable environment that mediates tumor progression, beyond their classical hemostatic function. Platelets have heterogenic responses to agonists, and differential release and uptake of bioactive molecules may be manipulated via reciprocal cross-talk with cells of the tumor microenvironment. Platelets thus promote tumor progression by enhancing tumor growth, promoting the development of tumor-associated vasculature and encouraging invasion. In the metastatic process, platelets form the shield t...
