Opioid Epidemic? What Opioid Epidemic?
A Highly Addictive new Opioid, Stronger Than Fentanyl and Morphine, is Poised to be Approved by theFDA In a controversial move, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is moving toward finalizing the approval of a highly addictive opioid. The decision was made by the FDA’s advisory committee on October 12, where a 10–3 vote occurred in favor of the drug hitting the market. “We are pleased with the Advisory Committee’s recommendation to approve DSUVIA as a treatment in medically supervised settings for adults experiencing moderate-to-severe acute pain,” Dr. Pamela Palmer, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of AcelRx said in a news release. “We look forward to continued collaboration with the FDA on the application as we believe DSUVIA represents an important non-invasive acute pain management option with potential to significantly improve the current standard of care.” DSUVIA, the drug in question, is a form of Sufentanil—which is more potent than fentanyl and morphine. It would be sold as an under-the-tongue tablet. While it can treat pain, it’s associated with a high risk for addiction and being dependent upon it. Side effects include but aren’t limited to restlessness, muscle spasms, chest pain and fast heartbeat, according to PubMed Health.
I Told You So
Organic foods cut your cancer risk, study suggests You can protect yourself from cancer by eating organic, a new study suggests. Those who frequently eat organic foods lowered their overall risk of developing cancer, a study published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine finds. Specifically, those who primarily eat organic foods were more likely to ward off non-Hodgkin lymphoma and postmenopausal breast cancer compared to those who rarely or never ate organic foods. Led by Julia Baudry, an epidemiologist at Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale in France, a team of researchers looked at the diets of 68,946 French adults. More than three-quarters of the volunteers were women, in their mid-40s on average. These volunteers were categorized into four groups depending on how often they reported eating 16 organic products, including fruits and vegetables, meat and fish, ready-to-eat meals, vegetable oils and condiments, dietary supplements and other products.

This often overlooked weed grows EVERYWHERE and has many amazing uses It was only in the twentieth century that the dandelion was classified as a weed. Before we became obsessed with the appearance of our lawns, these golden blossoms were part of folk medicine and loved for their various health benefits. In fact, some gardeners used to weed out grass to make room for more dandelions. An article on OfftheGridNews.com has listed five uses for dandelions that we may have forgotten about. Dandelions are also called the lion’s tooth for the unusual shape of their leaves — and indeed, the flower is quite the royalty in terms of the many essential vitamins and nutrients they are packed with. Dandelions are excellent sources of vitamins A and C and contain moderate amounts of iron and calcium. An article on OrganicFacts.net notes that the health benefits of dandelion include: promoting bone health, helping with liver detoxification, moderating blood sugar levels, improving symptoms of urinary disorders, and treating various skin diseases caused by microbial and fungal infections.
Go natural: Homeopathy is an effective therapy for anxiety and depression Having anxiety and depression disorder can greatly affect a person’s life. In fact, depression is the number one cause of disability worldwide. To alleviate the symptoms of these psychiatric disorders, psychotropic and antidepressant drugs are often prescribed by physicians. In addition to this, there are also a number of general practitioners that recommend the use of homeopathic therapies as a substitute or in conjunction with conventional medicine. According to the results of a study in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, patients that consulted with certified homeopathic practitioners had the most significant improvements in depression compared to patients that were given conventional care. Anxiety and depression disorder can affect almost anyone, regardless of age or gender. Although there are psychotropic drugs and antidepressants that can be used for treating psychiatric disorders, these conditions are still left untreated 75 percent of the time. Psychotropic drugs tend to be expensive, which is why not many people are able to access them. On the other hand, there are also cases where patients take the prescribed drugs but their condition still doesn’t improve. In addition to this, psychotropic drugs are also known for causing unwanted side effects like sleep disorders, loss of bone mass, and weight gain.
The CDC Wants To Protect You From Halloween Costumes. For Chickens.
CDC warns against Halloween costumes for chickens Stephanie Morse has quite a unique family and not all of the members live inside the house. “They’re a part of my family. It’s like they’re my babies. Some of them live right in the backyard,” Morse tells KNOE-TV. And like a normal family member, these chickens aren’t cooped up. They’re well fed. With a nice place to sleep. They even get dressed up for the holidays. Morse says she dresses up her chicks in costumes every Halloween. But the CDC is tricking this treat by asking folks not to put their pet chickens in costumes and to stop cuddling with them to keep from being exposed to salmonella.
Hour 2 – Advanced Medicine with Dr. Rashid Buttar!
Dr. Buttar is back to talk about what’s happening in the world of health news. Here’s what we have in store for you today:
Why is it so hard to figure out this polio-like illness hitting kids? Doctors say they are baffled by what’s causing an uptick in cases of a paralyzing, polio-like condition among kids across the U.S. The illness, called acute flaccid myelitis, appears to be on the rise in 2018 after causing just a handful of cases in 2017. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it’s investigating 127 reported cases, 62 of them confirmed to be AFM in 22 states. “We have not been able to find the cause of the majority of AFM cases,” the CDC’s Dr. Nancy Messonnier told reporters on Thursday. “Despite extensive laboratory testing, we have not determined what pathogen or immune response caused the arm or leg weakness and paralysis in most patients,” Messonnier added. “We don’t know who may be at higher risk for developing AFM or the reasons why they may be at higher risk.”
Link found between chronic inflammation and risk for Alzheimer’s disease While it is widely shown that possessing the ApoE4 gene is the major genetic risk factor of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), not all ApoE4 carriers develop AD. For the first time, researchers at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have shown that ApoE4 linked with chronic inflammation dramatically increases the risk for AD. This can be detected by sequential measurements of C-reactive protein, a common clinical test which can be could be done routinely in a clinical setting. “Finding out what mediating factors for ApoE4 increase AD risk is important for developing intervention and prevention of the disease,” explained corresponding author Wendy Qiu, MD, Ph.D., associate professor of psychiatry and pharmacology & experimental therapeutics at BUSM. “Since many elders have chronic low-grade inflammation after suffering from common diseases like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, pneumonia and urinary tract infection, or after having surgeries, rigorously treating chronic systemic inflammation in ApoE4 carriers could be effective for prevention of Alzheimer’s dementia.”
Study: Youngest Children in Classrooms Frequently Mislabeled as ADHD A recent study made some international mainstream papers recently that warned of medicating children misdiagnosed as ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), simply because they were the youngest students in their class. UK’s online Daily Mail included a quote from the lead author of that study, Dr. Martin Whitely, who stated: “It appears that across the globe some teachers are mistaking the immaturity of the youngest children in their class for ADHD. Although teachers don’t diagnose it, they are often the first to suggest a child may have ADHD.” The study was published by the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, and Allied Disciplines on October 14, 2018, with the title: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder late birthdate effect common in both high and low prescribing international jurisdictions: systematic review. The “late birthdate” label describes situations where a child’s birthday falls on a later date of the year than most of his or her classmates’ birthdays. This potentially places that child at a less mature stage of development as the others in the same class.
Flu jab protected just one in 10 pensioners last year, amid concerns new vaccines will run out Last year’s flu jab protected just one in 10 pensioners, new figures show, amid concerns new boosted vaccinations could run out. An evaluation by Public Health England (PHE) reveals that the vaccines given to millions of patients last winter had little effect. The worst protection was among over 65s – the age group most vulnerable to flu – with effectiveness of 10.1 per cent and none at all against some key strains. Figures among younger adults were little better at 12.2 per cent, with rates of 26.9 per cent among children, the provisional end-of-season estimates show. The failings contributed to the worst flu season for seven years, with 15,000 deaths from the virus, around twice the average figure, and the worst NHS performance on record. Health officials hope to avert such a crisis this winter, with new types of jabs on offer for all adults.
Herpes virus is linked to half of Alzheimer’s cases, scientist claims The herpes virus could be linked to at least half of all Alzheimer’s disease cases, a scientist has claimed. Professor Ruth Itzhaki, who has spent more than 25 years at the University of Manchester investigating a potential link between the two, said studies carried out in Taiwan suggested that the risk of dementia was much greater in those infected with herpes simplex virus (HSV). There are two types of herpes simplex virus (HSV): HSV1, also known as oral herpes, which causes cold sores and blisters around the mouth and on the face; and HSV2, which is generally responsible for genital herpes outbreaks. Prof Itzhaki said: “The striking results include evidence that the risk of senile dementia is much greater in those who are infected with HSV, and that anti-herpes antiviral treatment causes a dramatic decrease in number of those subjects severely affected by HSV1 who later develop dementia. “HSV1 could account for 50% or more of Alzheimer’s disease cases.”
