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...

Celiac disease: 5 things parents need to know
Dr. Dascha Weir, associate director, Boston Children’s Celiac Disease Program It may be difficult for parents to hear that their child has a chronic illness. When the diagnosis is celiac disease (CD), an autoimmune disorder caused by an intolerance to gluten, there is good news. CD is treatable by changes in diet. How it works: When food enters the stomach, it’s broken down into tiny digestible particles, which then travel through the small intestine. The small intestine is lined with villi — tiny finger-like projections that absorb nutrients from the food passing through. In celiac disease...
