Is Sushi Healthy? Here ’s Everything You Need to Know
Americans eat sushi in venues as varied as high-end restaurants and prepared foods sections of grocery stores — and many believe it’s a nutritious choice. But is sushi healthy? “Sushi has this halo of being healthy,” says Katherine Zeratsky, a registered dietitian nutritionist and associate professor of nutrition at Mayo Clinic. After all, traditional sushi has all the makings of a health food: it’s stuffed with fresh fish, wrapped in thin sheets of seaweed and presented in neat little rolls. But experts warn not to expect your weekly spicy tuna order to slim your waistline. One of the biggest...

Japan ’s Shinmoedake Volcano Erupts Violently, Grounding Dozens of Flights
(TOKYO) — A volcano in southern Japan that appeared in a James Bond film had its biggest eruption in years Tuesday, shooting smoke and ash thousands of meters (feet) into the sky and grounding dozens of flights at a nearby airport, officials said. The Meteorological Agency said the Shinmoedake volcano on Japan’s southernmost main island of Kyushu erupted violently several times, and some lava was rising inside a crater. Public broadcaster NHK showed gray volcanic smoke billowing into the sky and orange lava rising to the mouth of the crater. The Meteorological Agency said ash and smoke shot up 2,300 meters (7,5...

Seven lessons I ’ve learned from Rett syndrome
As a mother of a child with Rett syndrome, a disability that affects the brain’s ability to plan or coordinate motor skills, the phrase “take for granted” takes on a whole new meaning. I cannot take for granted that Ava can recite her A, B, C’s or feed herself a snack or go to the bathroom on her own. Quite the opposite. Every day, I strive to properly appreciate the effort it takes for Ava to perform the most mundane tasks. I am the one being “schooled” on Rett syndrome. Here are seven of the things Rett syndrome has taught me: 1. Technology is seriously cool. Ava doesn’t sp...

Trump Is Ruining My Teeth
It shouldn’t have been a shock when my tooth broke off, but of course, it was. For months, my jaw and teeth have been in a constant state of clenching and grinding. Now, a molar had broken in half, pushed over the edge by one bite of a salted caramel cookie and a steady diet of political news-induced stress. Research shows that as much as 70 percent of bruxism (the medical term for jaw and tooth grinding) occurs as a result of stress and anxiety. For me, the issue started after November’s election, when, like millions of other Americans (or to be exact, 57 percent, according to the American Psychological Associ...

However, better measures are needed to tackle the most common diseases -- including hand, foot and mouth disease, hepatitis B, and tuberculosis -- and those that are rapidly increasing, such as hydatid disease, hepatitis C, syphilis, and HIV.

The Need To Double-Check
My oldest child, my son, has had 15 birthdays. With each passing year, the physical signs of his maturation have been clearly evident. Adult-sized teeth pushed out baby-sized ones. Prominent bones erupted from beneath his cheeks, creating sharp angles from once soft curves. His height surpassed mine. The timbre of his voice descended. My son's ability to self-govern increased with every year, too. Some birthdays seemed to particularly mark his growing autonomy, like when he turned five, old enough to start school, when he turned 10 and could cycle away unchaperoned. Becoming a teenager was, of course, a big deal. Even bi...

Health experts hail two new Chinese-made vaccines against hand, foot, and mouth disease as a milestone against a malady that has run rampant in China. But that triumph was overshadowed by a safety crisis involving other homegrown vaccines. In recent weeks, police have arrested more than 200 people in connection with the nationwide distribution of 2 million doses of expired Chinese-made vaccines against scourges such as hepatitis B and rabies. No adverse reactions have been confirmed. China's vaccine developers hope the debacle won't derail efforts to make inroads into the global $33 billion vaccine market. But without a ma...

Electronic health records can help catch undiagnosed cases of Type 2 diabetes, UCLA researchers find
In 2012, a group of UCLA researchers set out to mine thousands of electronic health records for a more accurate and less expensive way to identify people who have undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes. The researchers got much more than they bargained for. Not only did they develop an algorithm with the potential to vastly increase the number of correct diagnoses of the disease by refining the pool of candidates who are put forward for screening; they also uncovered several previously unknown risk factors for diabetes, including a history of sexual and gender identity disorders, intestinal infections and a category of illnesses...

In this study, researchers wanted to see why this is and if there could be any human applications. Researchers collected white blood cells from African and Asian elephants. They found elephants have at least 20 copies of a gene called TP53. TP53 is known to encourage cell "suicide" when DNA is damaged, stopping any potential cancer in its tracks. In contrast, humans are thought to have only a single copy of the TP53 gene. Of course the big question – the elephant in the room, if you will – is how we can boost TP53 activity in humans to stimulate a similar protective effect. The simple answer is: we do...

There's an infection called Hand-foot-and-mouth disease, which is common among young children and is caused by a virus. Lately, there seems to be another illness, Foot-in-mouth disease, that's been going viral, at least socially. The main difference between these diseases is that the latter seems to affect mostly adults, and more specifically, adult male scientists. The most recent victim of this Foot-in-mouth disease is Tim Hunt, a 2001 Nobel Prize winner in Physiology or Medicine, for his comment about women in the lab.
