  So you kiss all things wheat and grains goodbye. And you’ve come to learn that gluten-free foods made with replacement flours like cornstarch, tapioca starch, potato flour, and rice starch are incredibly unhealthy, since they make visceral fat grow, send blood sugar through the roof, and contribute to diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and dementia. But perhaps you’d sure like a few muffins or cookies once in a while . . . without paying the health price that follows wheat and grain consumption such as high blood sugar, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune conditions, acid reflux,...

The lengthy and somewhat overwrought article I'll point out today is a good example of the way in which journalists fail when writing on the topic of the growing biotechnology industry that is making the first steps towards the medical control of aging. They talk to just a few people, and thus have a very narrow (generously) or absolutely incorrect (more accurately) view of what might be happening, the prospects for the future, and the shape of the field as a whole. In this case the few people are the folk at AgeLab at MIT, and George Church, with a focus on the veterinary deployment of gene therapies by Rejuvenate Bio, an...

In this study, we are trying to explore whether farm machine use reduces pesticide expenditure by analyzing farm household survey data collected from 493 maize farmers in China. An endogenous switching regression model is employed to address the sample selection bias issue associated with voluntary farm machine use. The empirical results reveal that farm machine use exerts a negative and statistically significant impact on pesticide expenditure. The findings highlight the important role of farm machines in helping reduce pesticide expenditure, which is, in turn, beneficial for improving human health conditions and environmental performance.

Traumatic injury is the leading cause of death in Americans ages 1 –44 in the United States and accounts for nearly 10% of global mortality [1,2]. Trauma care requires extensive health care resource utilization including hospital visits, surgeries, rehabilitation and psychological care. In addition, the health system-level financial losses associated with traumat ic injury exceed those of cancer and heart disease combined with annual costs exceeding $670 billion [2,3]. Meanwhile, the patient-level productivity losses due to acute and sometimes life-long physical, psychological, and emotional pain or disability result...

Abstract Adults with congenital heart disease are increasingly exposed to low-dose ionizing radiation (LDIR) from cardiac procedures. A recent study reported an association between increased LDIR exposure and cancer incidence, but did not explore their temporal relationships. Yet, the impact of past exposures likely cumulates over years, and its strength may depend on the time elapsed since exposure. Furthermore, LDIR procedures performed shortly before the cancer diagnosis may be ordered because of early symptoms of cancer, raising concerns about reversal causality bias. To address these challenges, we combined f...

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey on May 15 signed into law the strictest abortion ban in the country, sparking fears not only about abortion access, but also about how the policy could worsen disparities that already endanger the health of women living in the south. The law, set to become enforceable in six months, bans nearly all abortions at all stages of pregnancy, with exceptions only for serious threats to the mother’s health. It also makes performing abortions a crime for doctors, who could be convicted of a felony and face up to 99 years in prison. Until the law is enforced, abortion is still legally available in Alabama...
