Epidemiological Risk Factors Associated with Acne Vulgaris Presentation, Severity, and Scarring in a Singapore Chinese Population: A Cross-Sectional Study

Conclusion: Positive familial history is a strong predisposing factor in determining acne presentation, severity, and scarring. Demographic factors (gender, age) and sedentary lifestyle (increased computer/TV usage) influence acne presentation, while dietary habits (milk and butter consumption) influence acne severity and scarring. The predisposing factors revealed in this study could help us to gain insights into acne pathophysiology and hence develop interventions especially targeting modifiable risk factors.Dermatology

ConclusionAcid hydrolysis enhances the skin sensitizing capacity of gluten and drives IgE reactivity to more gluten proteins. This property of acid hydrolyzed gluten may be related to the degree of product deamidation, and could be a strong trigger of wheat allergy in susceptible individuals.

The study also found evidence to suggest psychotic disorders in the adult U.S. population rose from 2001-2002 to 2012-2013.“Our finding that the prevalence of past-year self-reported psychosis increased significantly between 2001-2002 and 2012-2013 is the first reported change in prevalence of self-reported psychotic disorders based on large-scale, nationally representative samples of U.S. ...

Aging is built on feedback loops, interactions between damage and dysfunction in which both sides accelerate the other. This is a feature of all complex systems, not just biological ones. The existence of feedback loops in which damage accumulation causes dysfunction that accelerates damage accumulation is the fundamental reason as to why aging is an accelerating process. It starts slowly, and moves ever more rapidly with time. Aging in one's 30s is a very different beast to aging in one's 70s, and the downhill slide is much faster in later life. The way to break this cycle is to repair the damage. This is true whet...
