The dangers of eating low-fat
So much time and energy have been wasted these past 40 or so years in trying to reduce dietary fat, including saturated fat. All you need do is look around you to see the result: the most unhealthy, fattest, most diabetic population in history, prescribed more drugs, more reliant on this (corrupt and unhelpful) thing called modern healthcare, with people in healthcare such as your doctor blaming YOU, rather than themselves and their misguided message. After all, doctors and dietitians are following the dictates of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the USDA food plate that carries the blessings of Big Food and agribusiness. Cutting dietary fat is not a benign practice—it results in many unhealthy consequences. Cut your fat, cut your saturated fat and: Other foods need to fill the calorie gap—Step in grain-based foods with their appetite-stimulating, autoimmune-initiating, inflammation-causing, insulin resistance-cultivating, bowel-disruptive effects. While absurd measures such as total and LDL cholesterol may drop, small LDL particles, VLDL particles, and postprandial (after-meal) lipoproteins reach new highs, effects that lead to heart disease. Metabolic distortions develop—Insulin increases, blood sugars increase, HbA1c increases, inflammatory measures like C-reactive protein increase. Insulin resistance develops—The repeated high blood sugars that develop with increased consumption of grains and other carbs cultivates resistance to insul...
Conclusion: HTX-019 administered by 2-minute injection has a tolerable safety profile in patients with cancer, representing a viable method of HTX-019 administration for CINV prevention. PMID: 31709853 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: EGFR expression is significantly higher in HPV positive IP. Stathmin is expressed by all IP tumour cells. Stathmin was also associated with dysplasia and a trend towards a correlation between stathmin positivity and recurrence was found. Stathmin and EGFR might therefore be considered therapeutic targets. PMID: 31710049 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: In this study, frequent regular use of over-the-counter mouthwash was associated with increased risk of hypertension, independent of major risk factors for hypertension and several other potential confounders. PMID: 31709856 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: the early use of IVIG could contribute to an improvement and/or stabilization of visual symptoms in this patient group due to its rapid effect and lower profile of adverse effects when administered with chemotherapy. PMID: 31710513 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: There was a good agreement for the size of the NVs in both methods. OCTA can be used as a simple and non-invasive method to visualize retinal neovascularizations. PMID: 31711250 [PubMed - in process]

Margarido, João M. dos Santos, Geraldo V. de S. Barbosa, Monalisa S. Carneiro, Glaucia M. SouzaAbstractSugarcane is one of the most sustainable energy crops and among cultivated crops, used to product the most tonnage worldwide. Its high productivity of sugar, bioethanol and bioelectricity make it a promising green alternative to petroleum. Furthermore, the myriad of products that can be derived from sugarcane biomass has be...
Publication date: Available online 11 November 2019Source: MethodsAuthor(s): Jennifer I. Brown, Brent D.G. Page, Adam FrankelAbstractProtein arginine N-methyltransferases (PRMTs) are a family of 9 enzymes that catalyze mono- or di-methylation of arginine residues using S-adenosyl-L-methionine (SAM). Arginine methylation is an important post-translational modification that can regulate the activity and structure of target proteins. Altered PRMT activity can lead to a variety of health issues including neurodevelopmental disease, autoimmune disorders, cancer, and cardiovascular disease. Thus, developing a robust mechanistic ...
Authors: Crispino V, Monárrez-Espino J Abstract To develop a novel delivery scheme to bridge the Mexican health system with highly isolated indigenous communities by involving naturally occurring social links: households and boarding schools. This was a school-based placebo-controlled trial with a follow-up period of 16 weeks. Children whose mothers fulfilled the inclusion criteria for anemia acted as iron supplement carriers between schools and homes. Adherence was measured based on teachers' and mothers' records. An effectiveness sub-analysis assessed changes in biochemical profiles according to rando...
