The Beautiful Skin Effects Of Exercise

The Beautiful Skin Effects Of Exercise

Years ago, I realized that if I looked into a mirror right after I went for a run, I would see a younger me. I attributed this impression to the fact that I was in a better mood after running, my circulation was pumping and my face reflected the joy I felt from my own version of the runner’s high. But now I know it’s not just me. I haven’t been imagining I looked younger just because I...

Chronic sinusitis is a common health condition that affects more than 37 million people in the United States annually, particularly this time of year and into the summer season.

Equally concerning, most cases of sinus trouble may be misdiagnosed as bacterial infections, leading to an overuse (and misuse) of antibiotics. More recent...

How Big Pharma Gets Doctors To Sell You More Expensive Drugs

Doctors may think that they make dispassionate, objective decisions about what medicines their patients should be taking. But a study of their prescription habits shows that they are the serfs of the drug companies whether they are conscious of it or not. When researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine examined the effect of providing free drug samples to dermatologists, they...

The Cellphone Habit That May Doom You To Alzheimer’s

The Cellphone Habit That May Doom You To Alzheimer’s

Apr 18, 2014 by

Many studies have raised questions about the safety of cellphones. And now a study in California shows that there’s one thing you should never do with your cellphone if you want your brain to stay healthy. The bad habit: Sleeping with your cellphone nearby and letting it disturb your sleep. A study at the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute (CPMCRI) in San Francisco shows that fragmented sleep and what the researchers call “lower sleep efficiency” were linked to a 40 to 50 percent increase in the chances of having serious memory and learning problems over the course of the 4-year study. The research involved more than 2,800 older men who had a mean age of 76...
Ask Important Questions During The Honesty Hours

Ask Important Questions During The Honesty Hours

Apr 17, 2014 by

Honesty is not a constant character trait. Research at Harvard indicates that you and your fellow humans are more honest during one part of the day and more likely to cheat and lie at another time. If you need an honest answer to an important question, ask during the honesty hours. These studies find that we’re more honest in the morning. But as the day wears on, honesty wears off and dishonesty increases. In these lab experiments, lying, cheating and engaging in unethical behavior took place more often after lunch than right after breakfast. According to the researchers: "As ethics researchers, we had been running experiments examining various unethical behaviors, such as lying,...

The Biggest Danger To Your Teeth

The Biggest Danger To Your Teeth

Apr 17, 2014 by

If you know anything about illegal drugs like meth or cocaine you may realize how they destroy teeth. But a common item you probably consumed today can be just as corrosive and erosive for your tooth enamel. Research at Temple University shows that soft drinks cause tooth erosion similar to what occurs when you take illegal drugs. Tooth erosion takes place when the acid in soft drinks wears away tooth enamel, the outer, protective outside tooth layers. Without protective enamel, teeth are more vulnerable to cavities. They can also crack and become more becoming sensitive and discolored. The study analyzed the damage in three people’s mouths. One person, was a meth addict,...
New Effect Of The Whooping Cough Vaccine

New Effect Of The Whooping Cough Vaccine

Apr 16, 2014 by

Researchers in Australia have made a disturbing discovery about changes that are occurring in the bacteria that cause whooping cough. And they think these dangerous adaptations by the disease are in response to the whooping cough vaccine. When the Aussie researchers examined the bacteria Bordetella pertussisf, which causes whooping cough, they found that many varieties no longer possess a surface protein called pertactin. By not having that protein on its surface, the microorganism can hide from the immune system more easily and infect more people. "It's like a game of hide and seek. It is harder for the antibodies made by the body's immune system in response to vaccination to 'search...

The Food That Makes You Lazy

Apr 16, 2014 by

A lot of us drink coffee and other caffeinated drinks first thing in the morning to get our get-up-and-go up and going. But researchers have found that if you eat the wrong food with those beverages, those items on your plate can sap your motivation and personal energy. The foods to avoid: junk food like donuts, pastries and sweetened cereal. In lab tests, scientists at UCLA have found that sugary, processed food can not only lead to weight gain, but can make you lazy, too. So if you want to keep your motivation high and stay aggressive in a competitive working environment, you’re better off eating the kinds of foods for breakfast that fit the paleo diet: fruits, vegetables,...
Healing And Hurting: The Power Of Touch

Healing And Hurting: The Power Of Touch

Apr 16, 2014 by

The power of human touch has played an important role in the history of healing. The therapeutic power of touch is evidenced in activities like the religious ceremonial laying on of hands and faith healing sessions. It’s also been used in energetic healing systems like qigong and Reiki, as well as in contemporary practices like massage, acupressure and chiropractic. With the vast increase in prescription drugs, radiation therapies and high-tech surgical procedures, the focus on -- and indeed, the belief in -- the healing power of touch, has all but disappeared in mainstream medicine. It is alive and well in many alternative health venues, but remains largely a fringe method of...
The Prostate Cancer Puzzle

The Prostate Cancer Puzzle

Apr 15, 2014 by

Much of the recent debate about how to diagnose prostate cancer focuses on the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test, and its usefulness for deciding on a man’s cancer risk. For more than two decades, the PSA test has been considered the gold standard for detecting prostate cancer early and saving lives. But recently, the PSA test has been called into question. Part of the problem is the nature of prostate cancer: Many men can get the disease but won’t die from it (although factors such as chronic inflammation or heavy metal toxicity can turn a non-aggressive prostate cancer into a deadly one). Other conditions like prostatitis and benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) can cause elevated...
The Toxin In Your Water That Reduces IQ

The Toxin In Your Water That Reduces IQ

Apr 15, 2014 by

Had your drinking water tested lately? Research at Columbia University shows that a widespread toxin found in water can hurt memory and intelligence. When the Columbia scientists looked at three school districts in Maine, they found that children exposed to arsenic in drinking water from household wells suffered from declines in their intelligence and IQ scores. The scientists examined 272 children in grades 3-5, who were, on average, 10 years old, who lived in Maine and whose families used wells for their drinking water and cooking. The area around Augusta was studied because other studies showed the presence of arsenic in this location. "Even though purchasing a standard filter...

Improve Your Memory In Six Minutes

Apr 15, 2014 by

If you have trouble focusing your mind and remembering information, scientists at George Mason University and the University of Illinois have some simple suggestions for improving your memory. And their methods take less than 10 minutes. The answer to a lack of mental focus may be meditation. When the researchers had students follow a few basic meditation instructions before a lecture, the students improved their scores on quizzes based on the class. In one experiment, doing pre-lecture meditation made the difference between who passed and who failed the quiz. "Personally, I have found meditation to be helpful for mental clarity, focus and self-discipline," says researcher Jared...

Would you take a pill that might extend your life by up to eight years? Researchers in Germany say the pill (a natural supplement) is for sale right now in your pharmacy.

Laboratory analysis shows that glucosamine also promotes amino acid breakdown. According to researcher Michael Ristow: "This reflects the...
