Podcast: How Toxic Masculinity Also Hurts Men

The phrase “sacred masculine” can evoke images of patriarchal religiosity.  But it has a different meaning for today’s guest. For Miguel Dean, the sacred masculine is an ideal, embodied by a man who accepts all of his emotions, understands the connectedness of humanity, and is devoted to helping others. Join us as Miguel explains how the sacred masculine is increasingly being recognized as a new model of masculinity to replace the old ideas of what it meant to be a man. This new man embraces all of his humanity and recognizes that part of this is the courage to feel, express and honor the full spectrum of human emotions. He knows that everything in life is connected and that his wholeness is catalyzed by his commitment to service. SUBSCRIBE &REVIEW Guest information for ‘Toxic Masculinity’ Podcast Episode Miguel Dean walks the path of the sacred masculine as seer, catalyst and holder of sacred space.  He is also a writer and author of his latest book Bring Him Home – A Twin Flame Love Story.  He was born in 1968 in Colchester, England where he had a challenging start to life.  As a result of his early difficulties, as a young man, he spiraled down into a life of violence, petty crime, addiction and homelessness in which he spent seven years living on the road as a New Age Traveler.   It was the love of his newborn son that inspired and motivated him to begin to take responsibility and make changes. This was...

AbstractAimWe designed a prospective randomized study to assess the outcome of Colorado microdissection needle in comparison with conventional surgical blade for performing neck dissections.Materials and MethodsSixty patients who underwent neck dissection for oral cancers were randomly allocated into two groups. The outcome measurements were in terms of cosmetic outcome of neck scar, intraoperative blood loss, over all operative time, and postoperative neck drain assessment.ResultsThe use of microdissection needle in performing skin incision and neck dissection eliminates the need for local anesthetic with vasoconstrictor ...

AbstractAims/hypothesisThe aim of this study was to use Mendelian randomisation (MR) to identify the causal risk factors for type 2 diabetes.MethodsWe first conducted a review of meta-analyses and review articles to pinpoint possible risk factors for type 2 diabetes. Around 170 possible risk factors were identified of which 97 risk factors with available genetic instrumental variables were included in MR analyses. To reveal more risk factors that were not included in our MR analyses, we conducted a review of published MR studies of type 2 diabetes. For our MR analyses, we used summary-level data from the DIAbetes Genetics ...

Conclusions/interpretationWhen included in the standard treatment for type 2 diabetes, dulaglutide significantly reduces LFC and improves GGT levels in participants with NAFLD. There were non-significant reductions in PFC, liver stiffness, serum AST and serum ALT levels. Dulaglutide could be considered for the early treatment of NAFLD in patients with type 2 diabetes.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov NCT03590626FundingThe current study was supported by an investigator-initiated study grant from Medanta –The Medicity’s departmental research fund and a grant from the Endocrine and Diabetes Foundation (EDF), In...

This study aims to investigate the efficacy and mechanism of action of TG-C in a rat model of OA. Using the monosodium-iodoacetate (MIA) model of OA, we examined whether TG-C could improve OA symptoms and cartilage structure in rats. Our results showed that TG-C provided pain relief a nd cartilage structural improvement in the MIA OA model over 56 days. In parallel with these long-term effects, cytokine profiles obtained on day 4 revealed increased expression of interleukin-10 (IL-10), an anti-inflammatory cytokine, in the synovial lavage fluid. Moreover, the increased levels of TGF-β1 and IL-10 caused by TG-C in...

DISCUSSION: Associations between PM10 and PTB in Mexico City varied over time and across levels of PM10. Our findings of negative associations in the second and third trimesters, which are contrary to the hypothesized relationship between PM10 and PTB, may be due to a number of factors, including live birth bias and the exposure period evaluated. Differences in results for the periods evaluated suggest that PM10 from shorter exposure windows may play a more proximal role in initiating preterm labor. PMID: 32979989 [PubMed - in process]

DISCUSSION: Both chronic and acute ambient temperature were associated with odds of stillbirth in this low-risk population, similar to our prior nationwide findings. Future increases in temperature extremes are likely and the observed risk in a low-risk population suggests this association merits attention. PMID: 32980027 [PubMed - in process]
