In conclusion, PLG attenuates high calcium/phosphate-induced vascular calcification by upregulating P53/PTEN signaling in VSMCs. Tsimane and Moseten Hunter-Gatherers Exhibit Minimal Levels of Atrial Fibrillation https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2021/03/tsimane-and-moseten-hunter-gatherers-exhibit-minimal-levels-of-atrial-fibrillation/ Epidemiological data for the Tsimane and Moseten populations in Bolivia shows that they suffer very little cardiovascular disease in later life, despite a presumably greater lifetime burden of infectious disease (and consequent inflammation) than is the case for people in wealthier regions. The differences in lifestyle are fairly straightforward: a much greater level of physical activity throughout life, and a diet that is high in fiber and low in all of the terrible things, like processed sugars, that people in the wealthier regions of the world tend to consume these days. Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia in post-industrialized populations. Older age, hypertension, obesity, chronic inflammation, and diabetes are significant atrial fibrillation risk factors, suggesting that modern urban environments may promote atrial fibrillation. Here we assess atrial fibrillation prevalence and incidence among tropical horticulturalists of the Bolivian Amazon with high levels of physical activity, a lean diet, and minimal coronary atherosclerosis, but also high infectious disease burden and associated inflammati...

In this study, the authors present an anatomical classification for PBLs that has been used by our group for over the past 26  years. The objective of this study is to investigate the benefits and applicability of this classification.MethodsBetween 1994 and 2019, 117 patients treated for PBLs were retrospectively reviewed. Using the V3 and arcuate eminence as reference points, the petrous bone is segmented into 3 parts: petrous apex, rhomboid, and posterior. The pathological diagnoses, selection of the operative approach, and the extent of resection (EOR) were analyzed and correlated using this classification.ResultsT...

When my mobile phone rang at 6:18 a.m., I was taking my son to day care. A breathless voice sputtered in my ear revealing the worst news. In the hours before, my youngest brother at just 20 years old smashed his car going 140 mph. The single-car crash was deemed intentional; it was suicide. Data show someone dies by suicide every 40 seconds. For every death by suicide, 25 others attempt. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), males in construction occupations have the…
