Boston Researchers Working On ‘Treadmill In A Pill’
BOSTON (CBS) – Losing weight is a very popular New Year’s resolution. And we soon may be able to shed the pounds without the sweat. Boston researchers say they have captured the weight loss benefits of a treadmill in a pill. Professor Chad Cowan and his team at Harvard University and Mass General Hospital have found a drug that can transform some of your “bad” fat into super-charged “good” fat that simply burns itself — like a day at the gym. “When you exercise you very naturally do this to some of the fat cells in your body. So we’re going to sort of make it like you...

5 Important Things You Probably Didn't Know About Vitamin D

Hopes for chemicals that turn 'bad' fat 'good'
Conclusion This laboratory research has identified chemicals that can make fat-storing white fat cells behave more like energy-burning brown fat cells in the lab. They hope these or other chemicals identified using their new method could eventually help combat obesity. A pill that allows us to eat what we want and not gain weight is a holy grail for many. While it might become a reality at some point in the future, this is unlikely to happen any time soon. As the authors themselves note, they have only done tests on cells in the lab so far. They do not yet know whether the chemicals will have the same effect within the ...

IT HAPPENED TO ME: I Temporarily Had A Physical Disability
By Julia Reinstein As a person who has been able-bodied my whole life, I thought I was having one of those nightmares where you can't move or run away. It took me half an hour to realize that I was, in fact, awake. This was real. It was the spring of my sophomore year of college when I contracted Löfgren syndrome, an acute autoimmune disease that attacked the fat cells in my joints, particularly my knees. My legs swelled up like tree trunks and I broke out in nasty red bumps that felt hot to the touch. Every morning, I would wake up with legs so stiff and pained that I would only gain the strength to walk after several ...

Cold hands: Could it be Raynaud’s?
I used to enjoy cold weather and cold-weather activities. Not anymore. These days I find it harder and harder to keep my hands warm when I’m outside, even with an excellent pair of gloves. Sometimes my fingers turn white and become numb. Those are the hallmarks of Raynaud’s syndrome (or disease or phenomenon). Named after the French physician who first described it in 1862, Raynaud’s is a problem in the body’s arteries. In most people with Raynaud’s, small arteries that bring oxygen-rich blood to the fingers spasm and close down in response to cold or stress. This reduces or cuts off blood flo...

They act by dampening part of the immune system called tumor necrosis factor. In one of the balancing acts of medicine, the anti-inflammatory action of the drug also increases the risk for other conditions, in this case, a rare form of eye cancer, uveal melanoma.
