No Wonder Big Pharma Makes So Much Money…
Eight tons of unused medication collected at National Drug Take-Back Day collects Kansans safely disposed of more than eight tons of unused or unwanted medicines during a special collection event. The Drug Enforcement Administration says Kansas officers collected about 17,000 pounds of medicines at 112 locations across the state. The event was the largest single collection day in Kansas since the program began in 2010. Kansas Attorney General, Derek Schmidt says Kansans have safely destroyed about 150,000 pounds of medications in 15 collection days since 2010. Law enforcement officials say the safe disposal of medications is a way to combat the opioid crisis. Unused prescriptions can be turned any time of the year at many local law enforcement locations and some other locations.
Question of The Day!
It was great meeting you at Complete Wellness yesterday. Thank you for a great talk. After the event, I had to go to MSG for a Beatles Tribute Concert and had my bag with the silver supplements in it which they put through the X ray machine at security. Is it still safe to use them and will it still be beneficial?
How Should You Eat? First…. IGNORE Government
Saturated fat should be maximum 10 percent of diet, WHO says A person’s diet should contain only 10 percent of saturated fats and 1 percent from trans fats, according to new draft guidelines issued Friday by the World Health Organization. The new guidelines are part of an attempt to reduce deaths from cardiovascular diseases. WHO is launching the initiative because cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of noncommunicable deaths in the world, with around one-third of all 54.7 million deaths worldwide in 2016 attributed to them. “Modifiable risk factors such as unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use and harmful use of alcohol are major causes of CVDs,” the WHO said in a press release. “Dietary saturated fatty acids and trans-fatty acids are of particular concern as high levels of intake are correlated with increased risk of CVDs.”
Obamacare’s calorie count rules go into effect President Donald Trump has found one part of the federal health law palatable: He’s allowing Obamacare rules that require chain restaurants to post calorie counts to go into effect Monday. The rules, which are among the final pieces of the 2010 Affordable Care Act to be implemented, require restaurants to list calories on all menus and menu boards. Restaurants will also have to provide on-site additional nutritional information, such as fat and sodium levels. The law, intended to nudge Americans to eat healthier, applies to chains with at least 20 stores. And it won’t be just fast-food and sit-down restaurants that are affected. Grocers, convenience stores, movie theaters, pizza delivery companies and even vending machines must meet the new requirements to display calories. The menu labeling rules will improve public health, the Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said last week in an interview. He pointed to studies showing that enlightened customers order, on average, up to 50 fewer calories a day.
Didn’t See That Coming…
Why Millennials Have Way More In Common With Their Grandparents’ Generation Young people’s interest in ‘healthy, clean living’ has them cooking, crafting, and counting their pennies in ways that baffle their Boomer parents. Young people are not the wild whippersnappers they used to be, according to an amusing article in the Wall Street Journal. While their parents would have been chugging beers, microwaving pizzas, and watching soap operas, this next generation of adults is more inclined to sip non-alcoholic beverages on a Saturday night, eat fennel instead of fries, and participate in hot yoga and terrarium-building classes for entertainment. It’s a curious change in habits for an age group that has long been associated with rebellion and pushing limits, but one that Alison Angus, an analyst for Euromonitor, says reflects young people’s desire “to assert control and find comfort in an unstable world.” Angus said: “They feel they can make a difference, and this influences their spending choices. This means more saying no: no to alcohol; no to unhealthy habits; no to animal-based products and, increasingly, no to unmeasured or uninformed spending.”
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:
Melanoma Monday: Protecting your family from skin cancer It’s Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and today is “Melanoma Monday,” when all of us are urged to self-examine our skin and go to a doctor if we find any sign of the most malignant form of skin cancer. More people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year than all other cancers combined. One in five people will develop skin cancer by age 70. Melanoma is the most dangerous form; it accounts for just one percent of skin cancer cases, but the majority of deaths. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 91,000 people are expected to be diagnosed with melanoma this year.
Every cancer patient should be prescribed exercise medicine Every four minutes someone in Australia is diagnosed with cancer. Only one in ten of those diagnosed will exercise enough during and after their treatment. But every one of those patients would benefit from exercise. I’m part of Australia’s peak body representing health professionals who treat people with cancer, the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia. Today we’re joining 25 other cancer organisations to call for exercise to be prescribed to all cancer patients as part of routine cancer care. Published today in the Medical Journal of Australia, our plan is to incorporate exercise alongside surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy to help counteract the negative effects of cancer and its treatment. Historically the advice to cancer patients was to rest and avoid activity. We now know this advice may be harmful to patients, and every person with cancer would benefit from exercise medicine.
Speak to yourself nicely: People who say they are sickly are more likely to be, even if they’re physically active It’s time to stop being too hard on yourself. According to a study, your perception of your fitness, especially compared to your peers, may affect your actual physical health. The study, which was led by researchers from Stanford University, had determined that individuals who believe they’re not as active as people who are the same age could be at risk of dying younger compared to those who perceive themselves as more active – even if both groups have the same activity levels. During the study’s follow-up period, researchers found out that individuals who consider themselves as somewhat inactive had an alarming 71 percent likelihood of dying, unlike their peers who they perceive as in better physical health. The results were the same even after the researchers controlled for actual physical activity levels, age, chronic illnesses, and other demographic and health factors.
Low levels of hormone linked to autism in boys, scientists say Unusually low levels of a hormone called vasopressin, known to cause low social ability in monkeys, has now been linked to similar effects in boys with autism. Researchers at Stanford University, the University of San Francisco and the University of California Davis explored the effects of differing levels of vasopressin, which helps regulate blood pressure and fluid retention. Their findings were published this week in Science Translational Medicine. Vasopressin has previously been thought to play a role in social, sexual and nurturing behavior. The hormone also interacts with male hormones, including testosterone, leading researchers to believe it could be involved in autism. Four times the number of boys than girls have autism, which is prevalent in 1 in 59 American children, according to a report issued last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
New Animal Study Reveals Aluminum Adjuvants Can Impair Social Behavior According to the authors of the study, Sneha K.S. Sheth, Yongling Li and Christopher A. Shaw, this is the first experimental study to demonstrate that aluminum adjuvants can impair social behavior if applied in the early period of postnatal development. These correlations satisfied eight out of nine Hill criteria for causality. Experimental studies have demonstrated a range of behavioral abnormalities in young mice after postnatal exposure to aluminium. To build on the team’s previous work, the current study investigates the effect of aluminium adjuvants on social behavior in mice. Anomalies in social interaction are a key characteristic of those with ASD.
