Got Indigestion? A2 Milk Might Be Easier For Some To Drink
MORAVIA, N.Y. (AP) — Milk got your stomach feeling sour? Dairy companies looking for ways to appeal to people who avoid milk because of indigestion are promoting what they describe as a natural, easier-drinking alternative. It’s called A2 milk, which is produced by a subset of cows that produce milk lacking a protein that backers say is associated with milk’s dyspeptic tendencies. That A2 claim has its skeptics, but the bet is that consumers will pay an extra dollar or more per half-gallon to drink milk that might not cause indigestion, gas and bloating. “Our approach has been, ‘Listen, if you...

Here ’s Why Doctors Often Miss Heart Attack Symptoms in Women
Almost 30% of women who had a heart attack in a new study sought medical care for related symptoms before they ever went to the hospital — but more than half of their doctors didn’t think their ailments were heart-related. The reason why so many women are falling through the cracks may have to do with the variety of heart-attack symptoms that women experience, according to the paper published in the journal Circulation. Researchers from the Yale School of Public Health interviewed almost 3,000 heart attack patients younger than 55 — two-thirds of them female — about their symptoms, when they sought ...

Go for the gold in bed
Olympic athletes have a secret that most mere mortals just don't get. And it's the same secret that can make you a gold-medal superstar in bed.  I'm talking about oxygen.  Olympians understand that every cell in your body is designed to burn oxygen. Cut back on oxygen and all cellular processes slow down. You start to become tired or short of breath. So, high concentrations of oxygen in every cell in your body makes the difference between a gold medal and an "also ran."  It's the same for you in just about every part of your life. With plenty of oxygen, your body pulses with energy....

Conclusions Previous research suggests we may be better off consuming more of our calories earlier on in the day, when we have a full, active day ahead of us to use up the energy. It's also been observed that people who consume large calorific meals late in the evening can have a higher body weight. In a sense, the results of this study seem plausible and don't really say anything different from what's already been observed. But as this is a cross-sectional study, it can't really prove very much. The study involved a small, select sample of US university students. Their results can't be applied to everyone, as they have di...

Could a Mediterranean diet be as good as drugs for acid reflux?
Conclusion The results of this relatively small cohort study seem to show that a plant-based Mediterranean diet with alkaline water is equally good as PPI medication at treating acid reflux symptoms when people also follow standard advice to cut out certain things from their diet. This might suggest that the first port of call for people with gastro-oesophageal reflux could be to try a Mediterranean diet before going on PPI medication, to avoid potential side effects. There are, however, some limitations to this research: Cohort studies can only show links and cannot prove definite cause and effect, and retrospective coh...

Conclusion This larger set of observational data finds that PPI drugs are associated with an increase in the risk of early death compared with either H2 blockers or no acid suppression drugs. This was the case for participants both with and without gastrointestinal problems. It also appears as though the longer the PPIs drugs are taken, the greater the risk of death. Considering that these drugs are widely used in the UK, these findings may cause concern. But the research has a number of important limitations: The study was conducted in a population of mostly white, older US male veterans, which might limit the abi...

Early warning signs of some cases of heart attacks 'being missed'
Conclusion Are doctors missing signs of heart attack in people admitted to hospital? The study results show that may be true in some cases, but there could be other explanations for these findings. One limitation of the study is that it doesn't show what tests were done, so we don't know whether people who'd complained of chest pain, for example, had tests for heart attacks. We don't know whether doctors actually missed the signs, or whether they investigated them but the tests were negative. It's also possible that – where people were admitted for one reason but eventually died of a heart attack – the initia...
