No increased dementia risk found in diagnosed celiac patients
Celiac patients are at no increased risk for dementia before or after their diagnosis of celiac disease, a new and comprehensive study has found. The study analyzed data on 8,846 individuals over the age of 50, matching patients with celiac disease to controls with regard to their rate of developing dementia. After a median follow-up period of 8.4 years, dementia was diagnosed in 4.3% of celiac disease patients and 4.4% of matched controls. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

Swap Your White Pasta For One Of These 6 Healthier Varieties
Pasta night is under fire. Whether you're following a low-carb, gluten-free, low-glycemic index or low-calorie diet, the pasta you know and love is probably on your do-not-eat list. And without getting into the merits of every anti-white-pasta diet out there (which is basically every diet known to man), white pasta is a no-no for some pretty good reasons: During the milling process, white flour is stripped down to remove the grain’s bran and germ, and with them, fiber, protein, iron and B vitamins, explains Florida-based registered dietitian Jaime Mass.

Children with frequent infections in the first 18 months of life have a slightly increased risk of later developing celiac disease compared with children who have few infections, conclude researchers.

FDA panel recommends limited use of Bayer’s Essure until more is known about safety
An FDA advisory panel yesterday recommended that the agency limit the use of Bayer‘s (ETR:BAYN) Essure female sterilization device until more is known about its safety, after thousands of women reported serious health issues they attribute to the nickel-titanium implant.

Need, Greed, and GMOs: Genuflection in All the Wrong Directions
Images of scientists inserting eye-of-newt genes into escarole, or wool-of-bat genes into watercress stalk the nightmares of pure food proponents, and up to a point-- rightly so. Even if the intentions of those tinkering with foods are good- such as putting antifreeze genes from amphibians into oranges so they are not destroyed by an early frost- the law of unintended consequences pertains. There is ample reason, in principle, to be wary of Frankenfoods. There may be reason in epidemiology as well.

Discussion Intussusception occurs when one segment of the gastrointestinal tract telescopes into an adjacent segment. The outer receiving segment of bowel is known as the intussuscipiens and the inner inverting segment is known as the intussusceptum. It occurs most often in children between 2 months to 5 years, with a peak incidence between 4-10 months. Males are more often affected than females by 3:2. It also occurs more often after abdominal operations particularly in the first 2 weeks. It is the second most common acute abdominal emergency in children after appendicitis.
