What ’s the Best Way to Get Rid of a Bad Aftertaste?
Ordering a dish loaded with garlic or onions can be a commitment. The flavors can linger on the tongue long after a meal is over, no matter how many breath mints you pop. But what actually causes a bad aftertaste — and is there any way to get rid of it? Cordelia Running, director of the Saliva, Perception, Ingestion and Tongues (SPIT) lab at Purdue University, says that aftertastes are generally caused by “little bits of the actual flavor stimuli that might hang around”: physical remnants of food that get caught in the mouth, for example, or molecules that remain in the saliva or mucus. Potent foods, suc...

Why Food Could Be the Best Medicine of All
When Tom Shicowich’s toe started feeling numb in 2010, he brushed it off as a temporary ache. At the time, he didn’t have health insurance, so he put off going to the doctor. The toe became infected, and he got so sick that he stayed in bed for two days with what he assumed was the flu. When he finally saw a doctor, the physician immediately sent Shicowich to the emergency room. Several days later, surgeons amputated his toe, and he ended up spending a month in the hospital to recover. Shicowich lost his toe because of complications of Type 2 diabetes as he struggled to keep his blood sugar under control. He wa...

Global Differences in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest Reporting
Conclusion Large disparities exist surrounding OHCA patients among three different high-income countries. In addition to this, there are significant gaps in capturing, reporting, sharing and analyzing OHCA data across regional and national borders.

Much about OHCA epidemiology is still unknown in many regions of the world, including countries with regional OHCA surveillance in place.

Among body shapes, pears are healthier than apples
(University of California - Riverside) For women, fat usually accumulates around the hips, resulting in a pear-shaped look. In men, fat tends to build up around the abdomen, creating an apple shape.

While females were unaffected, males showed low testosterone and reduced sperm count, in addition to neuroinflammation. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
