Engineered bacteria sense, remember, and report on their experience in the gut
It's a jungle in there. In the tightly woven ecosystem of the human gut, trillions of bacteria compete with each other on a daily basis while they sense and react to signals from the immune system, ingested food, and other bacteria.Problems arise when bad gut bugs overtake friendly ones, or when the immune system is thrown off balance, as in Crohn's disease, celiac disease, and colorectal cancer. Doctors have struggled to diagnose these conditions early and accurately. But now a new engineered strain of E. (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

By Carolyn Sax, MD, a primary care physician with the Pediatric Physicians’ Organization at Children’s and practices at Hyde Park Pediatrics in Hyde Park, Mass. In an effort to prevent food allergies, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has recommended introducing white rice cereal as an infant’s first food for years. Bland rice cereal was felt to be unlikely to cause digestive problems or allergies. Doctors suggested delaying a baby’s exposure to some of the more common food allergy triggers—milk, eggs, fish and nuts—until a child is between 1 and 3 years old, because they worried ...

Dad’s diet may impact on offspring’s future health
Conclusion This research demonstrated that a folate deficient diet given to male mice led to a higher rate of birth abnormalities in their offspring than male mice on a folate sufficient diet. There were a number of chemical patterns on the DNA of the folate deficient mouse fathers that appeared to be inherited by their offspring. These patterns affected DNA regions that the researchers say, may affect rates of chronic disease. There are a number of large limitations to this research. The research was on a small group of mice and not people. So, this doesn’t provide sufficient evidence on which to base any new di...

What Causes Muscle Weakness?
Discussion Muscle tone is the slight tension that is felt in a muscle when it is voluntarily relaxed. It can be assessed by asking the patient to relax and then taking the muscles through a range of motion such as moving the wrists, forearm and upper arm. Muscle strength is the muscle’s force against active resistance. Impaired strength is called weakness or paresis. There are 5 levels of muscle strength. 0 = No muscle contraction detected 1 = Barely detected flicker of contraction 2 = Active movement with gravity eliminated 3 = Active movement against gravity 4 = Active movement against gravity and some resistance ...
