Hour 1 – The Passing of John McCain
Sen. John McCain, independent voice of the GOP establishment, dies at 81 John McCain, who shed a playboy image in his youth to become a fighter pilot, revered prisoner of war and both an independent voice in the Republican Party and its 2008 presidential nominee, died on Saturday, little more than a year after he was told he had brain cancer. He was 81. McCain’s office said in a statement “Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 p.m. on August 25, 2018.” He announced on July 19, 2017, that he had been diagnosed with a glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain tumor. On Friday his family announced he was discontinuing treatment. “With the Senator when he passed were his wife Cindy and their family. At his death, he had served the United States of America faithfully for sixty years,” McCain’s office said in the statement. His daughter, Meghan McCain, said in a statement that “I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning.”
7 Clinically Tested Benefits of CBD Oil, The Wellness World’s New Fave Supplement CBD oil is on everyone’s radar these days, with claims pointing to evidence that CBD oil can do everything from cure cancer to reduce anxiety. But what’s the truth? With this guide, we’re looking into some of the top touted benefits of CBD oil to clue you into the truth about this much-lauded supplement. This guide to the benefits of CBD oil is part of a three-part series on CBD oil. Please check out our FAQs about CBD, as well as our buying guide to CBD oil. To understand the benefits of CBD oil, it’s important to first understand the endocannabinoid system, a relatively newly discovered part of the human body that naturally produces certain cannabinoids, similar to CBD (cannabidiol) or THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. “Endo stands for endogenous, originating within the body,” explains Stormy Simon, former President of Overstock.com and champion of the cannabis industry.
Nasal spray flu vaccine gets green light from CDC this year After advising the public to avoid the nasal spray version of the flu vaccine for the last two years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now giving it the green light. A favorite of the needle-averse, the spray had not appeared to work as well against H1N1, a strain of the flu, in the last few seasons, according to the public health agency. But it’s expected to work better this year, according to the CDC and Dr. Andrew Pavia, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at the University of Utah Hospital. It’s an encouraging sign, especially after an especially virulent flu season. In fact, the CDC said earlier this year, more than 172 children died of flu-related illness in the 2017-18 season, the highest on record when it comes to youths for a single season. In Chicago alone, intensive care units saw more than 580 influenza-associated hospitalizations, city officials reported, a trend that peaked in January. Across the state, close to 2,300 were hospitalized, according to the state health department. Both city and statewide, most admitted to intensive care units were age 65 and older.
No alcohol safe to drink, global study confirms Bad news for those who enjoy what they think is a healthy glass of wine a day. A large new global study published in the Lancet has confirmed previous research which has shown that there is no safe level of alcohol consumption. The researchers admit moderate drinking may protect against heart disease but found that the risk of cancer and other diseases outweighs these protections. A study author said its findings were the most significant to date because of the range of factors considered. The Global Burden of Disease study looked at levels of alcohol use and its health effects in 195 countries, including the UK, between 1990 and 2016. Analysing data from 15 to 95-year-olds, the researchers compared people who did not drink at all with those who had one alcoholic drink a day. They found that out of 100,000 non-drinkers, 914 would develop an alcohol-related health problem such as cancer or suffer an injury. But an extra four people would be affected if they drank one alcoholic drink a day.
Hour 2 – Good Cholesterol Is…. Bad Cholesterol?
Too much of a good thing? Very high levels of ‘good’ cholesterol may be harmful Very high levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL or “good”) cholesterol may be associated with an increased risk of heart attack and death, according to research presented today at ESC Congress 2018. Study author Dr. Marc Allard-Ratick, of Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, US, said: “It may be time to change the way we view HDL cholesterol. Traditionally, physicians have told their patients that the higher your ‘good’ cholesterol, the better. However, the results from this study and others suggest that this may no longer be the case.” HDL cholesterol has been considered “good” because the HDL molecule is involved in the transport of cholesterol from the blood and blood vessel walls to the liver and ultimately out of the body, thereby reducing the risk of clogged arteries and atherosclerosis. People with low HDL cholesterol have a greater risk of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. But the protective effect of very high HDL cholesterol has been unclear. This study, conducted as part of the Emory Cardiovascular Biobank, investigated the relationship between HDL cholesterol levels and the risk of heart attack and death in 5,965 individuals, most of whom had heart disease. The average age of participants was 63 years and 35% were female.
