Better Than Tylenol To Ease Arthritis Pain
No dose of Tylenol is going to ease your arthritis pain — no matter what your doctor tells you. It’s important to know the benefits and risks associated with each medication to determine which ones are right for you. And a team of researchers from the University of Bern, in Switzerland, has just proved it. The researchers gathered data from 74 randomized trials involving 58,500 patients. And what they discovered was that acetaminophen — marketed as Tylenol in America and Paracetamol in Europe, Australia and elsewhere — has no impact at all on osteoarthritis pain, no matter what the dosage.

Quality of Life is the Ultimate Endpoint
Did you know that only 1 in 8 drugs in development makes it to market? It is estimated by the Manhattan Institute that $4.3 billion out of every $5.8 billion spent on research and development of new therapies is misspent. That cost is felt in time and money, but even more so in lost opportunity. It’s tragic that progress is so slow and expensive. For all of the monetary and human resources dedicated to pharmaceutical R&D, the odds remain heavily stacked against breakthrough research ever making it to market.

Greater self-acceptance improves emotional well-being
Follow me at @srinipillay Self-acceptance is defined as “an individual’s acceptance of all of his/her attributes, positive or negative.” It includes body acceptance, self-protection from negative criticism, and believing in one’s capacities. Many people have low self-acceptance. There can be many reasons for this, but one widely accepted theory is that because we develop our self-esteem, in part, from others appreciating us, people with low self-acceptance may have had parents who lacked empathy during their childhood. Consequently, in their adult lives, they may need much stronger affirmation from ...

Inflammation May Hold Key to Cognitive Decline in Alzheimer's Disease
A new study poses an intriguing question: Does gum disease accelerate cognitive decline in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease? The answer may be found in inflammation. Aging affects our immune system, and inflammation is a normal part of the body's immune response to infection or injury. Previous studies have shown that the inflammation response increases as we age. Inflammation is now linked to a number of diseases more common in people over age 65, including atherosclerosis, osteoarthritis and Alzheimer's. In a recent study, Professor Clive Holmes of the University of Southampton (UK), along with colleagues from K...
