You won ’t believe what happened this morning
When I got to the office this morning, several of my employees were in a state of near-panic… I couldn’t imagine what might have happened… and I was alarmed. Turns out, the coffee maker was on the fritz. Coffee is the “drug” of choice for many of the people on my staff. And they’re not alone… An astounding 80% of Americans use the caffeine in coffee to boost their energy. The buzz helps them wake up every morning and gets their day going. And older adults drink coffee more than anyone else. In fact, in a survey by the National Coffee Association, 20% of people over 64 said they ...

Apollo Endosurgery's Orbera365 weight-loss balloon works the same way as the original Orbera device, except it is designed to stay in the patient's stomach for 12 months, twice as long as the previous version. Apollo Endosurgery said it has received CE Mark approval to sell its Orbera365 weight-loss system in Europe, doubling the amount of time the balloon stays inflated in the patient's stomach. The approval comes less than a month after FDA alerted doctors of patient deaths associated with obesity balloons made by Apollo and ReShape Medical.

Pigment Found in Chamomile, Parsley Kills Mesothelioma Cells
A yellowish pigment common to parsley, celery, chamomile tea, oranges and grapefruit may be the latest treatment for mesothelioma cancer, a new study shows. While numerous studies have demonstrated the anti-cancer and antioxidant properties of apigenin (API), the natural pigment found in these plants and vegetables, researchers recently tested it against malignant mesothelioma cells. Doctors at the University of Rome evaluated the anti-tumor activities of API in mice injected with mesothelioma cells. API inhibited malignant mesothelioma (MM) cell survival and activated cell death, known as apoptosis. Mice treated with AP...

The Dangers Of Climate Change Are Real In This New Comic Anthology
In the past decade or so, a subgenre of dystopian fiction has emerged to confront our changing planet: climate fiction, or “cli-fi.” In stories like Jeff VanderMeer’s “Southern Reach” trilogy, or Kim Stanley Robinson’s New York 2140 and Claire Vaye Watkins’ Gold Fame Citrus, characters confront floods, droughts and other environmental catastrophes. But, as a recent post on the Smithsonian blog points out, these stories are swiftly becoming not just future possibilities, but present realities.

What Makes A Migraine 1000x Worse Than A Headache
This is dedicated to anyone who has ever thought I was a baby because I can’t handle a headache and anyone who has said: “take some Tylenol”. But it’s also a big thank you to those of you who have helped me feel better when I have a migraine, those who make sure I avoid my triggers, and those who have understood that I am really sick. It starts as a small feeling but I know what’s coming. I try to calm myself down; I don’t want to give it the power to consume me. But I slowly break and the pain comes on. I take the one pill that seems to work before I get too nauseous. Heat floods over m...

Do Vitamin Supplements Really Work For Colds?
The Question: Will supplements really prevent a cold or shorten one from lingering?  The Answer: Dietary supplements aimed at cold prevention, like Zicam or Emergen-C, sound miraculous in theory. But do they actually help to eliminate that nasty bug? The answer from experts is a resounding “no.”  Zicam promises to be a “cold shortening” homeopathic remedy. It is available in a variety of forms, all of which use zinc at the major active ingredient. Emergen-C is a popular dietary supplement made from vitamin C which claims to provide extra support to the immune system. Another va...
