Podcast: Is Mental Illness a Made up Disorder?

In this episode, our hosts discuss whether or not mental illness is a real disorder or if it’s just something that medical and pharmaceutical companies made up to make a profit.  SUBSCRIBE &REVIEW “Instead of taking my psychiatric medications this morning, should I have just gone to yoga?” – Michelle Hammer Highlights from ‘Mental Illness Made Up’ Episode [2:00] Is mental illness real? [4:00] Yoga doesn’t cure all mental illnesses, just like it wouldn’t cure cancer. [16:00] Dealing with people who think mental illness is not real. [19:30] Eating disorders are such a stigmatized mental illness. [20:00] Cigarettes used to be a health food (true story!). [27:00] You can still live a great life with a mental illness.

However, breast cancer classification is challenging due to numerous morphological and textural variations that appeared in intra-class images. Also, the direct processing of high resolution histological images is uneconomical in terms of GPU memory. In the present study, we have proposed a new approach for breast histopathological image ...

They offer independent and shared contributions to pathways underpinning medical comorbidities including insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, obesity and card...

McLaughlinAbstractSmaller hippocampal volume is associated with increased risk for PTSD following trauma, but the hippocampal functions involved remain unknown. We propose a conceptual model that identifies broad impairment in hippocampus-dependent associative learning as a vulnerability factor for PTSD. Associative learning of foreground cues and background context is required to form an integrated representation of an event. People with poor associative learning may have difficulty rem...

Authors: Banaei M, Alidost F, Ghasemi E, Dashti S Abstract Childbirth is one of the most important influencing factors for sexual function. Therefore, this study was conducted with the aim of comparing sexual function in primiparous and multiparous women. This cross-sectional analytical study was performed using systematic random sampling on 420 women in the postpartum period who referred to Bandar Abbas health Centres in 2018. The data were collected using an interview method which consisted of a Female Sexual Function Index questionnaire and a demographic questionnaire. The data analysis was performed using the S...

This study was aimed at detecting NRAS G12D and NRAS G13C mutant genes among apparently healthy and haematologic malignant individuals, and to explore their association with some clinical and demographic factors as well as disease status and progression. A total of 200 cfDNAs, 100 each from haematologic malignant patients and blood donors, respectively, were analyzed for the presence of NRAS gene mutations in codons 12 and 13. These mutations were tested using multiplex allele-specific PCR (AS-PCR). The mutations were detected by selective amplification using mutation-specific synthetic oligonucleotides. NRAS G12D and NRAS...

(−)-(Sp,R,R,Sp)-3 was characterized by 1H, 13C NMR and ESI-MS. The absolute configuration of the compound (−)-(Sp,R,R,Sp)-3 is determinated by single crystal diffraction. It is found that the compound (−)-(Sp,R,R,Sp)-3 (IC50 = 0.15 μM, 0.49...

In this study, we have examined the hypothesis that elevated levels of I− would decrease HOCl formation and thereby protein damage induced by a MPO/Cl−/H2O2 system, by acting as a competitive substrate. The presence of increasing I− concentrations (0.1–10 μM; i.e. within the range readily achievable by oral supplementation in humans), decreased damage to both model proteins and extracellular matrix components as assessed by gross structural changes (SDS-PAGE), antibody recognition of parent and modified protein epitopes (ELISA), and quantification of both parent amino acid loss (UPLC) and forma...
