By Cecilia RussellMILAN, Italy, Jun 4 2020 (IPS) The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the inherent fragility of food systems, Marta Antonelli told an international video conference organised by the Barilla Center for Food Nutrition (BCFN). However, she said, it also offered an opportunity to reset the way food is produced, distributed and consumed. The pandemic disrupted the food system, triggering food insecurity and resulted in sharp increases in the cost of food – up to 10 per cent in sub-Saharan Africa. Jobs were lost, children who received one meal a day at school lost access to this source of nutrition, and ...

What is stigma? And how does it affect a person’s mental health and quality of life? In today’s Psych Central Podcast, Gabe talks with anthropologists Alex Brewis and Amber Wutich about the deeply dehumanizing impact of stigma in society. Whether it’s your mental health diagnosis, your neighborhood, your race or your inability to meet society’s standards in some way, stigma is alive and well in today’s world. People even tend to stigmatize themselves, intensifying their suffering.  Why are people so quick to stigmatize? And how does stigma affect mental health treatment? Tune into the sh...

Immunotherapy has achieved long-term disease control in a proportion of cancer patients, but determinants of clinical benefit remain unclear. A greater understanding of antitumor immunity on an individual basis is needed to facilitate a precision oncology approach. A conceptual framework called the “cancer-immune set point” has been proposed to describe the equilibrium between factors that promote or suppress anticancer immunity and can serve as a basis to understand the variability in clinical response to immune checkpoint blockade. Oesophageal cancer has a high mutational burden, develops from pre-existing ch...

Conclusions: In the largest study to date of symptomatic individuals under 50 years of age undergoing colonoscopy in the USA, advanced CRN was most often detected in the distal colon and was associated with anemia, but not with abnormal bowel habits or abdominal pain. We also found that patients with CRN under 50 years of age were more likely to be male, smokers, and obese. These findings should prompt further investigation of these risk factors alone and in combination.

Evidence strongly suggests that the global faltering of mitochondrial function throughout the body with advancing age has a lot to do with a decline in the effectiveness of mitophagy. Mitochondria are the power plants of the cell, a herd of hundreds swarming and replicating like bacteria in every cell to produce the chemical energy store molecule ATP. Mitophagy is the specialized form of autophagy that destroys worn and damaged mitochondria, recycling their component parts. Without it, cells would become overtaken by broken, malfunctioning mitochondria. Mitochondrial dysfunction leads to too little ATP, but also higher lev...

Conclusions: In this population-based study, the detection of breast cancer gradually increased with GLP-1 RA weight loss categories, particularly among those achieving>10% weight loss. These results are consistent with the hypothesis that substantial weight loss with GLP-1 RAs may improve detection of breast cancer among obese patients with type 2 diabetes.

The superiority of bariatric surgery over best medical therapy (BMT) in the treatment of type 2 diabetes has been well demonstrated in high-quality randomized clinical trials. Furthermore, there is sufficient clinical and mechanistic evidence to support consideration of metabolic surgery for the patients with class 1 obesity (body mass index [BMI], 30.0-34.9; calculated as weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared), type 2 diabetes, and inadequately controlled hyperglycemia. At 5-year follow-up, compared with BMT, the Systemic Therapy in Advancing or Metastatic Prostate Cancer: Evaluation of Drug Efficacy (ST...
