Inverse association of asthma and hay fever with cancer in the 2015 National Health Interview Survey database

Although immune hyperresponsiveness to common inhaled antigens is inherent to allergy and asthma, with allergens perceived as danger signals,1 there is an active immune underreactivity promulgated by cancer cells,2 which allows progression of this potentially fatal disease process. How one immunologic extreme relates to the clinical expression of the other immunologic extreme has not been established.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewObesity is a major public health problem associated with various diseases. Improving obesity control and achieving greater patient satisfaction are critical unmet needs. Various otorhinolaryngologic diseases can have negative effects on quality of life or actual health status depending on their type. Over the past decade, the relationship between obesity and otorhinolaryngologic conditions has been investigated. The purpose of this review was to discuss the relationship between obesity and otorhinolaryngological diseases.Recent FindingsThis is a narrative review on the current state of incidence, e...

Conclusion In Table 1, an overview is presented of the complex roles of AAs described in this review regarding the microbiome-gut-immune-brain axis in ASD. Besides behavioral deficits, people with ASD are characterized by systemic inflammation, gastrointestinal immune-related disturbances and changes in the gut microbiota composition. Moreover, differences in levels of specific AAs in various body compartments, including the intestinal tract, blood, urine and brain have been reported in patients with ASD, as well as in rodent models for ASD. This review described that specific AAs can modulate the intestinal epithelial im...

This study evaluated the effects of dried ginger and LGWWJX decoction on cold asthma at the metabolomics level. It provides a reference for the research on the compatibility of Chinese Medicine. Introduction Ginger is a Chinese medicine (CM) used as a food and as a medicine, and is often used to treat cold syndrome through the property of warming. Dried ginger (Zingiberis Rhizoma, GanJiang, GJ) is processed from fresh ginger and is also commonly used in CM. It is used to treat cold asthma by “warming the stomach to dispel cold, warming the lung to resolve fluid,” and it has significant anti-inflammatory...

Grains can play havoc with your skin. The prolamin proteins, such as gliadin,  trigger autoimmune skin reactions and turn antibodies against the skin enzymes, their lectins fan the fires of inflammation, their proteins provoke allergies, and their amylopectins send blood sugar and insulin sky-high and provoke the skin-disrupting hormone insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF). The whole grain package adds up to an impressive collection of skin conditions that can take a variety of forms, from simple red, itchy rashes to scaly, oily raised patches to large vesicles to gangrene. B...

Conclusion The results obtained from this research shows, in general, the fragility in the social and political infrastructure necessary to improve the living conditions of populations, particularly those that depend on family agriculture in drought prone areas. The conditions of social, economic and environmental vulnerabilities presented in the region can be amplified by the drought process, and can aggravate the impacts resulting drought events, thus disadvantaging the population of this region, as shown in the Fig. 1. The general perception of the interviewees of the health sector shows an agreement with what is found...
