Bladder Stone Basics
Bladder stones are not often heard of as they are not nearly as common as kidney stones. Sometimes referred to as urinary tract stones or bladder calculi, they primarily affect men as 95% of all bladder stones cases are found in men. What are bladder stones?

What It Means When You See Blood In Your Urine
There are few moments more frightening than seeing blood in your urine. Happily, the cause is often not serious. The condition is more formally known as hematuria, and blood in the urine is usually the only symptom.

As this gland begins to grow - commonly with the onset of middle age i...

Behind the Headlines Top Five of Top Fives 2015
In this study, researchers wanted to see why this is and if there could be any human applications. Researchers collected white blood cells from African and Asian elephants. They found elephants have at least 20 copies of a gene called TP53. TP53 is known to encourage cell "suicide" when DNA is damaged, stopping any potential cancer in its tracks. In contrast, humans are thought to have only a single copy of the TP53 gene. Of course the big question – the elephant in the room, if you will – is how we can boost TP53 activity in humans to stimulate a similar protective effect. The simple answer is: we do...

Claims rhubarb pigment 'could help cancer crumble'
Conclusion This study found that a chemical found in rhubarb called physcion, and related chemicals, are able to reduce cancer cell growth in the lab and in mice. They do this by blocking a protein called 6PGD. While the chemical is found in rhubarb – where it produces an orange pigment – it was concentrated for use in this study and a slightly modified form was used in the mice.  As yet, these chemicals have only been tested on human cancer cells in the laboratory and injected into mice. We therefore can't conclude eating rhubarb is going to "save your life", as implied by the Daily E...

Carrot Beer Debuts In Australia. Yes, Carrot Beer.
Even in the wildly innovative world of craft beer today, it's still possible to invent something new. Case in point: The new Wabbit Season beer from 4Hearts Brewing Company in Ipswich, Australia. It's made from a wort that was 16 percent carrot juice. The Australian Broadcasting Company reports that the brewery collaborated with local farmer Richard Gorman to develop the beer; he contributed all the carrots used to make it. The brew looks almost as orange as a cup of Fanta and apparently tastes strongly of carrots. The brewery has so far released 1,200 liters of the stuff, but to date it's available only at bars in nor...

8 Whole Grains You're Probably Not Eating
By Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD You've probably had oatmeal for breakfast, and if you haven't yet tried quinoa I bet you've heard of it, or have seen it on a menu or social media recipe (it's all over Pinterest!). But there are many other whole grains you may not be familiar with, and incorporating them into your food repertoire is well worth the learning curve. Whole grains are white hot among chefs and nutritionists. They're versatile, satisfying and in addition to providing slow-burning starch (think sustained energy!), vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, whole grains are health protective.
