Probiotics 'aid memory in people with Alzheimer's disease'
Conclusion This randomised controlled trial looked at whether probiotic supplements help improve cognitive function in patients with Alzheimer's disease over 12 weeks. It also investigated the effect of probiotics on biomarkers for inflammation and metabolism in the body. It found treatment with probiotic supplements resulted in a small improvement in cognitive function compared with the control group. But everyone remained severely cognitively impaired, and it's not clear if the change in score was clinically important in terms of function. Although these are interesting findings, there are a few things to bear in mind...

11 Signs You're Too Stressed At Work (And How To Fix That)
By Cassie Shortsleeve for GQ. A long time ago, work stress was healthy. Lifesaving, even. When our ancestors went out hunting, their primal fight-or-flight response alerted them if some sneaky saber-tooth tiger was about to pounce. They ran. The adrenaline subsided. They went on with their lives, dreaming of the day when a local Trader Joes would open so they could stock up on snacks. In 2016, the only beasts we have to contend with in our day jobs are bad bosses and the loud talker in the next cube. Still, pressure (not to mention every E-mail ping) can continuously trigger that fight-or-flight response, putting us in per...
