What Are the Health Needs of Incarcerated Youth?
Discussion In the US during 2011, ~60,000 youth were incarcerated at some time in a correctional facility. Boys are detained more than girls (86% vs 14% respectively in the US, 95% male in the United Kingdom in 2014) but girls have more health issues. There are racial and ethnic differences with 38-40% of detainees being black, 23% being Hispanic/Latino and 32% being white, and 5% other.

5 pounds of THIS in your body?
Did you know that by the time you’re 50, you could have almost five pounds of toxins trapped inside your cells, tissue and organs? For millions of years, we had clean air and pure water. But in the past hundred years, our environment has changed faster than we can evolve with it. We weren’t designed to live in a modern world of manmade chemicals, toxins and pollutants. That’s why purging your body of pollutants is more important today than ever. Environmental toxins have become a major health threat. These toxins have linked with many of today’s chronic diseases including: • Cancer • Di...

Vitamin D may prevent asthma worsening for some
Conclusion This review gathers the available trial evidence to address the specific question of whether giving people with asthma vitamin D supplements could have an effect on how many asthma exacerbations they have. The review has many strengths. It only included double-blind trials, where participants and assessors didn't know if people were taking vitamin D or a placebo. Researchers also made careful attempts to gather all relevant data and information on confounding factors, and all but one trial had a low risk of bias. But there are some limitations to bear in mind: With the relatively small number of trials and par...

Two weeks to bowel cancer?
There’s no doubt antibiotics have saved a lot of lives. But because they’ve been overprescribed for so many years we’ve ended up with a slew of health problems. For one thing, overuse of antibiotics wreaks havoc on your microbiome… That’s your body’s ecosystem. Your microbiome has 100 trillion or so bacteria, viruses and fungi. It affects just about every organ and body system. Some of these gut bugs cause disease and infection. But other good bacteria are called “probiotics.” They boost your immune system. They help you digest your food and turn it into vitamins. But in...

Vitamin D May Reduce Asthma Severity; Smell Test Could Predict Dementia Risk
BOSTON (CBS) – A common vitamin could reduce the severity of asthma attacks in people with the condition. London researchers reviewed a number of previous studies involving almost a thousand patients with asthma and found that supplementation with vitamin D reduced the need for ER visits and hospitalizations for asthma by 50 percent. Patients on vitamin D also appeared to reduce the need for treatment with steroids by 30 percent. Most of the study subjects were adults with mild to moderate asthma so it is unclear what the effects might be with children or people with more severe asthma. And the patients were continui...

Fried foods? Use THIS oil.
You’ve probably heard some very confusing advice about which cooking oils are best for your health. Almost every time you read an article or watch a health show on TV, someone is recommending some good-for-you grease that’s somehow better, less cancer-causing, more antioxidant-rich, less (or sometimes more) fatty than the last. The problem begins with doctors and nutritionists — and Big Food — who like to classify cooking oils by categories of fat, claiming that one category is “good” and another is “bad.” Don’t listen to them. We already know that mainstream medicine a...

How to Parent Like a Scandinavian
When I became a mom in the U.S., the parenting experience was nothing like I had expected. The playgrounds, which I thought would be teeming with children, were often deserted. Most young children seemed to be either glued to a screen at home or being drilled with academics at preschool. When I went outside for daily walks with my baby in the winter, people took pity on us and offered me rides. Meanwhile in my native Sweden, kids gear up to go outside every day, regardless of the weather, both at home and at preschool. Forget flash cards, wall words and kindergarten readiness — Scandinavian parents are keener to have...
