EVALI: New information on vaping-induced lung injury
E-cigarettes (vapes) first made headlines due to skyrocketing sales and popularity. Then reports of serious illnesses and deaths related to vaping tobacco and other substances began mounting in summer 2019. By mid-February 2020, the CDC reported more than 2,800 cases of lung injuries requiring hospitalization across all 50 states, and 68 deaths. EVALI, as this illness is now called, continues to generate questions, although emergency department visits related to vaping have been declining. Why did vaping injuries, and even deaths, seem to occur so suddenly, even though e-cigarettes have been in use for years? Why is EVALI ...

Fight Aging! Newsletter, October 21st 2019
In this study, AT1-AAs were detected in the sera of patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and the positive rate was 44.44% vs. 17.46% in non-PAD volunteers. In addition, analysis showed that AT1-AAs level was positively correlated with PAD. To reveal the causal relationship between AT1-AAs and vascular aging, an AT1-AAs-positive rat model was established by active immunization. The carotid pulse wave velocity was higher, and the aortic endothelium-dependent vasodilatation was attenuated significantly in the immunized rats. Morphological staining showed thickening of the aortic wall. Histological examination showe...

Magnetic Nanoclusters For Tumor Destruction
A wide variety of magnetic nanoparticles have been developed by researchers. These devices can be injected into tumors and, using a magnetic field, made to heat up and kill cancer cells. One major challenge with using such nanoparticles is that they are usually expected to be injected using a syringe directly into a tumor, but most tumors aren’t so easy to reach. A more systemic delivery method, which can let magnetic nanoparticles access deep-seated cancers, is very much needed. Now, researchers at Oregon State University have reported in the journal ACS Nano that they have developed specially designed nanoclust...

Why It ’ s Okay to Cry in Public
I waited three months after I was discharged from the hospital for suicidal depression to make contact with the professional world again. I wanted to be sure I didn’t “crack,” like I had done in a group therapy session. A publishing conference seemed like an ideal, safe place to meet. A crowded room of book editors would certainly prevent any emotional outbursts on my part. So I reached out to colleague who had been feeding me assignments pre-nervous breakdown and invited her for a cup of coffee. “How are you?” she asked me. I stood there frozen, trying my best to mimic the natural smile I had...

7 Simple Ways to Ease Anxiety
Anxiety serves a life-saving role when we are in real danger. Adrenaline pumps through our system, and suddenly we can run like Usain Bolt and lift a 200-pound man without much effort. However, most of the time, anxiety is like a fire alarm with a dead battery that beeps annoyingly every five minutes when there is absolutely nothing to worry about. We experience the heart palpitations, restlessness, panic, and nausea as if a saber-toothed tiger were 20 yards away. Thankfully there are a few simple gestures to communicate to your body that there is no immediate danger — that it’s a false alarm… yet again....

Does Crying Help or Hurt Depression?
Tears. I liken them to numinous mist or emotional sign language. “They’re considered a release, a psychological tonic, and to many a glimpse of something deeper: the heart’s own sign language, emotional perspiration from the well of common humanity,” writes Benedict Carey in his New York Times piece “The Muddled Track of All Those Tears.” The Healing Property of Tears Tears heal us in several ways. They remove toxins from our body that build up from stress, like the endorphin leucine-enkaphalin and prolactin, the hormone that causes aggression. They lower manganese levels — which t...

Could Baby Teeth Hold the Key to Autism?
A study published in June 2017 found that baby teeth taken from children with autism contain more toxic lead and less of the essential nutrients zinc and manganese compared to teeth from children without autism. Scientists studied twins to control genetic influences and focus on possible environmental contributors to the disease. The findings suggest that differences in early-life exposure to metals, or more importantly how a child’s body processes them, may affect the risk of autism. These differences were most evident during the months just before and after birth. This timeline was determined by using lasers to m...

Two gadolinium-based contrast agents are banned in Italy
Wellwellwellwellwell! WELL! I just read a bit of welcome (or, wellcome!) news in Italian. If you understand Italian, here’s the link: goo.gl/JYN8ec. In a nutshell, beginning today, yes, TODAY!, two contrast agents used in MRIs have been banned in ITALY. And, quelle surprise (not), they are gadolinium-based. Remember the study that came out some years ago about how much myeloma cells simply LOVED gadolinium, and proliferated at mad rates when placed in it? If not, just do a search of my blog for “gadolinium.” Gadolinium can also have a bunch of not-very-nice side effects… The reason for this ba...

Researchers at Case Western University are making MRI multicolored as a way to conduct more comprehensive and precise disease diagnosis. Introduced by Paul Lauterbur and Peter Mansfield in the 1980s, and considered “one of the greatest medical breakthroughs of the 20th century,” MRI traditionally uses one single contrast agent to illuminate images in the brain. This new technique enables radiologists to use these two contrast agents — gadolinium and manganese — to differentiate between healthy tissue a nd diseased tissue. Currently, MRI is limited to only measuring one agent at a time. However, this...

8 Foods that Boost Your Mood
