Chronic inflammation is long lasting, insidious, dangerous. And you may not even know you have it.

People often learn they have it when by developing an autoimmune disease. But the ailment might also play a role with heart disease, cancer, other disorders.

Fatty acids are vital dietary sources of energy for humans and are also important structural components of cells. The well-known omega-3 fatty acids, also known as n-3 fatty acids, are not made in enough quantities in the body and therefore need to be acquired from dietary sources making them essential fatty acids. In general, n-3 fatty acids have been shown to improve conditions such as psychiatric disease, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, ADHD, fetal brain development, autoimmune disease, and cancer.

This study shows that CA are released from periventricular and subpial regions to the cerebrospinal fluid and are present in the cervical lymph nodes, into which cerebrospinal fluid drains through the meningeal lymphatic system. We also show that CA can be phagocytosed by macrophages. We conclude that CA can act as containers that remove waste products from the brain and may be involved in a mechanism that cleans the brain. Moreover, we postulate that CA may contribute in some autoimmune brain diseases, exporting brain substances that interact with the immune system, and hypothesize that CA may contain brain markers that m...

AbstractDue to the presence of receptors in the cells of numerous body tissues, vitamin D is associated with several physiological functions that go beyond calcium and phosphorus homoeostasis and control of bone metabolism in the body. In humans, several studies have associated lower vitamin D concentrations with numerous diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, autoimmune diseases and infectious diseases, and also with an increase in the total mortality rate of the population. Recently, this nutrient started to gain importance in veterinary medicine, and several articles have shown a correlation between low vitamin D stat...

In conclusion, T2D impairs vascular function by dysregulated autophagy. Therefore, autophagy could be a potential target for overcoming diabetic microvascular complications. To What Degree Does Loss of Skeletal Muscle with Age Contribute to Immunosenescence? https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2019/11/to-what-degree-does-loss-of-skeletal-muscle-with-age-contribute-to-immunosenescence/ Sarcopenia, the progressive loss of muscle mass and strength, is characteristic of aging. A perhaps surprisingly large fraction of the losses can be averted by strength training, but there are nonetheless inexorable process...

Abstract Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is a cardinal sign of cardiovascular (CV) autonomic dysfunction as a result of autonomic nervous system failure to control the postural hemodynamic homeostasis. The proportion of individuals with OH increases with aging and chronic conditions, such as neurodegenerative diseases, hypertension, heart failure, diabetes, renal dysfunction, autoimmune diseases and cancer. In those over 70 years, more than 20% can be affected. It is now increasingly recognized that a direct relationship exists between OH and each step of the CV disease continuum, eventually leading to end-stage hear...

Abstract Adverse childhood experiences are associated with many poor health outcomes. Research has demonstrated associations between childhood trauma and increased incidence of heart disease, lung disease, cancer, mental health disorders, addiction, and a host of autoimmune diseases including diabetes. Current understanding of the mechanisms of injury relies on numerous theoretical frameworks and diagnostic criteria. Radiologic technologists can improve patient care by using research-validated techniques for promoting resilience when working with patients and families affected by adverse childhood experiences. ...

  That’s precisely what the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is recommending: more weight loss surgery for overweight kids. This sort of perverted advice reflects the deep and widespread failure of the healthcare system to address nutrition and health, resorting instead to an awful surgical “solution” that, contrary to the AAP’s declaration that it is a proven safe option, is filled with complications, nutritional deficiencies, dysbiotic alterations in bowel flora, hormonal disruptions, and—not all that rarely—death. (Granted that it was over 10 years ago, but the first patient ...

We examined 9293 individuals from the Copenhagen General Population Study using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy measurements of total cholesterol, free- and esterified cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids, and particle concentration. Fourteen subclasses of decreasing size and their lipid constituents were analysed: six subclasses were very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), one intermediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), three low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and four subclasses were high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Remnant lipoproteins were VLDL and IDL combined. Mean nonfasting cholesterol concentration was 72...
