Bothered By Noisy Eating? It May Affect Your Ability to Learn
If you’re bothered by the sounds of other people chewing, your pet peeve may wreck more than mealtime. In a new study published in the journal Applied Cognitive Psychology, researchers set out to determine how misophonia — extreme sensitivity to the sound of people chewing, coughing or eating — affects learning. They found that people who said they were sensitive to these sounds had a harder time mastering and retaining information when they could hear a person chewing gum, suggesting that misophonia has an impact on academic performance. “Some people are especially sensitive to relatively subtle sp...

Improving the Measurement of Fertility Regulation Practices: Findings from Qualitative Research in Ghana
CONCLUSIONSThe fertility control strategies commonly reported by the study respondents —periodic contraception, and frequent use of traditional methods and emergency contraceptive pills—are likely not adequately captured in general surveys such as the DHS.

New ways of cap turing women's fertility regulation practices should be considered, including additional survey items, new question modules and specialist studies. (Source: The Guttmacher Institute)

Book Review: Insane Consequences
I have read Insane Consequences: How the Mental Health Industry Fails the Mentally Ill a couple of times and am still contemplating it. It also inspired me to research further into how we treat the seriously mentally ill in America. In the book, author DJ Jaffe takes on what he calls the “mental health industry,” and I think that is a fair characterization. He is not the only writer to use the phrase, and he confronts that industry with a voice that reminds me of a prosecuting attorney on a mission.

Newly discovered gene may protect against heart disease
Scientists have identified a gene that may play a protective role in preventing heart disease. Their research revealed that the gene, called MeXis, acts within key cells inside clogged arteries to help remove excess cholesterol from blood vessels.Published in the journal  Nature Medicine, the UCLA-led study in mice found that MeXis controls the expression of a protein that pumps cholesterol out of cells in the artery wall.MeXis is an example of a “selfish” gene, one that is presumed to have no function because it does not make a protein product. However, recent studies have suggested that these so-called &...
