Another reason is the increasing focus on oncology, coupled with underrepresented education and training on BPH. PMID: 30790005 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

D.C. Ambulance Policy Denies Hospital Transport for Some Patients
WASHINGTON (ABC7) — Under a new policy starting on March 1, DC ambulance crews might not take some patients to a hospital but will refer them to a clinic. DC Fire and EMS Chief Gregory Dean says most of the people his crews have been taking to hospitals don’t really need urgent emergency services. And he says Lyft drivers will take patients with Medicaid to one of 21 clinics DC has designated for less urgent cases before later taking the patients back home.

Are Grains to Blame for That Rash Too?
Grains can play havoc with your skin. The prolamin proteins, such as gliadin,  trigger autoimmune skin reactions and turn antibodies against the skin enzymes, their lectins fan the fires of inflammation, their proteins provoke allergies, and their amylopectins send blood sugar and insulin sky-high and provoke the skin-disrupting hormone insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF).

Hiker Recalls Being Stuck in Quicksand in Utah Park
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A man who was stranded for hours in frigid weather with his leg sunk up to the knee in quicksand at a creek in Utah's Zion National Park said Tuesday that he feared he would lose his leg and might die because the quicksand's water was so cold.

An Introduction to the Neuroscience Behind Creating Your Reality
Have you ever wondered why two people can share the exact same situation, yet experience it differently? Neural pathways are often described as a type of super-highway of nerve cells, the function of which is to transmit messages. Much like a walking track in the bush, the more you walk over it, the more trodden and clear it becomes. The same thing happens when we engage in behaviors such as thinking certain thoughts with a high degree of regularity. You see the brain consumes between 20-30% of the caloric burn in our body at rest. It uses so much energy because it’s so complex and so it has needed to evolve and adapt ...

Older Women Who Sit Around At Higher Risk Of Heart Disease, Study Says
BOSTON (CBS) – Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women over 65, and researchers at the University of California have found that older women who sit or lay down for long periods during the day are at greater risk. The study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) looked at 5,000 older women over five years and found that higher amounts of time spent sitting or lying down and periods of being sedentary were directly related to heart disease and stroke, regardless of a woman’s overall health or her physical function. But, they say reducing sedentary time by just an hour a day can lower the r...
