Gut Bacteria May Determine Whether Your Diet Succeeds Or Fails
A gut bacteria makeover may not be at the top of your list of resolutions for 2017, but you’d be wise to consider it if your goals have anything to do with improving your diet or losing weight. New research finds that dietary sacrifices ― say, giving up pizza and hamburgers in favor of a healthy, low-calorie diet ― may be for naught if your intestinal flora are out of whack from a lifetime of eating a standard American diet.

'Miracle Baby' Who Weighed Less Than 1 Pound At Birth Is Now A Thriving Teen
Eric and Tammy Koz always wanted to be parents. So when the young couple found out they were pregnant with a little girl in 2003 after a devastating miscarriage, they were beyond thrilled. “I was ecstatic,” Tammy told “The Oprah Show” in 2004. “I had a very positive outlook on the pregnancy. I think I’m probably the only one that did...” The reason many were fearful, Tammy explained back then, was due to her having lupus, an autoimmune disease that increased her risk of miscarriage. Yet, this particular pregnancy was going smoothly ― until 19 weeks, when a routine ultrasound reve...

10 Things I'm Grateful For in 2017
Unless you've been living in the middle of the wilderness or under a rock, you've probably noticed a lot of headlines deeming 2016 the worst year ever. Although I believe the past years that witnessed the bubonic plague or any world war could easily stomp last year to win the "Worst Year for Humanity" award, 2016 was the worst year I've ever personally experienced. Between Trump's upset election for POTUS and George Michael dying on Christmas of all days to the entire year being filled with personal and financial challenges, 2016 was definitely the worst year of my adult life. Right alongside 2008, of cour...

For instance, the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends adults get no more than five percent of their calories from saturated fat, urging people to use vegetable oils instead.They also advise people to eat at least five to 10 percent of th...

Gum disease bug linked to rheumatoid arthritis
Conclusions This research aimed to investigate a possible bacterial origin of rheumatoid arthritis and found one potential candidate – Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans (Aα). It seems these bacteria could cause the high levels of citrullinated proteins which are known to trigger an immune reaction in people with rheumatoid arthritis. However, it's important to put these findings into the right context. Though antibodies against citrullinated proteins, anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP), are one of the possible diagnostic findings in people with rheumatoid arthritis – not everyone w...

This often comes as a surprise to parents, requiring a trip to the hospital followed by rapid lifestyle adjustments and a serious increase in their healthcare expenses. A way to test for type 1 diabetes before the onset of symptoms would help prevent the dangerous consequences and give families time to be educated and prepared.

Multiple sclerosis: Newly discovered signal mechanism causes T cells to turn pathogenic
Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks the patient's own cells. In this case, modified T cells destroy the myelin sheath surrounding nerve cells. Myelin protects the neural pathways and is thus essential to the ability of nerve cells to transmit information. A recent study has demonstrated that a substance known as interleukin 6 (IL-6) plays an important role in instructing T cells to cause damage to myelin sheaths in the central nervous system.

Thwarting autoimmune diseases
(Technical University of Munich (TUM)) The immunoproteasome dismantles proteins and the resulting fragments are displayed on the surface of cells. This helps the immune system to recognize abnormal cells. However, in chronic inflammations and autoimmune diseases this 'information channel' is overactive. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich have determined the molecular mechanisms of inhibitors that can selectively thwart the human immunoproteasome -- important insights for the targeted development of new drugs.
