How Loud Noise Exposure Is Linked to Heart Disease
If you live near an airport, railroad tracks or a busy road, you might be concerned about how fumes from those planes, trains and automobiles are affecting your health. But according to a new review in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, there may be another threat to worry about: high levels of noise that may be bad for your heart. A connection between noise pollution and cardiovascular disease has been observed in numerous studies over the years, the authors of the new review said. High decibel levels from road traffic and airplanes, for example, has been linked to high blood pressure, coronary artery dise...

Small errors, fatal consequences
(BfR Federal Institute for Risk Assessment) In Germany, every year more than 100,000 cases of illness are statistically recorded whose pathogen can be transferred via food. These reported cases are only the tip of the iceberg, however, as the actual number is estimated to be well over a million. The majority of infections are probably caused by food and for this reason, the proper handling of food in communal catering facilities and restaurants as well as at home is of high importance for avoiding food-borne infections.

PSMA PET/CT clearly differentiates prostate cancer from benign tissue
(Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging) Using nuclear medicine, German researchers have found a way to accurately differentiate cancerous tissue from healthy tissue in prostate cancer patients. The research is highlighted in the February issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine and demonstrates that the maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) on 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT scans correlates with PSMA-expression in primary prostate cancer. By this means, researchers were able to generate an SUVmax cutoff for the differentiation of cancerous and benign prostate tissue. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
