School Shootings – What Can Be Done?
President Trump Meets With Governors, Talks Florida School Shooting President Donald Trump met Monday with the nation’s governors about how to address school safety in the wake of the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school. The governors were in Washington for their annual winter meeting. “We continue to mourn the loss of so many precious young lives,” the president said. “These are incredible people. I visited a lot of them. But we’ll turn our grief into action. We have to have action. We don’t have any action.”
All Teenagers Should Be Screened For Depression, According To New Guidelines From The American Academy Of Pediatrics Teens are far from exempt from suffering mental health issues. Studies show one in five teenagers struggle with depression, but most go undiagnosed and untreated, in part because teenagers are so rarely screened for mood disorders. That should change, according to new guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics — the new guidelines recommendpediatricians screen all teenagers for depression during their annual pediatric checkups.
Diet Helps Depression? No Way….
Study: Heart-healthy diet may help reduce depression risk People who adhere to a diet to avoid hypertension also were less likely to develop depression, according to a preliminary study released Monday. The Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, known as DASH, has been shown to lower high blood pressure and bad cholesterol, but it can also reduce depression, according to a study that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 70th Annual Meeting in Los Angeles.. The diet relies on vegetables, fruit and whole grains, recommends fat-free or low-fat dairy products and limits foods high in saturated fats and sugar. In anearlier study published in the BMJ medical journal in January, people whose eating habits over two decades aligned most closely with the DASH or AHEI-2010 diets experienced a drop in overall body weight and BMI despite genes that put them at greater risk for obesity.
Obesity – An Ongoing and Growing Problem
Childhood obesity is getting worse, study says While obesity rates among young children in the
United States appeared to be on the decline a few years ago, a new analysis suggests that it’s not time to celebrate just yet. Despite some previous reports that obesity in children and teens has remained stable or decreased, the study found no evidence of a falloff between 1999 and 2016. Rather, there was a significant rise in severe obesity among children ages 2 to 5, since around 2013, according to the study published in the journal Pediatrics on Monday.
Millennials ‘set to be fattest generation’ UK millennials are on track to be the most overweight generation since records began, health experts say. Based on population trends, more than seven in every 10 people born between the early 1980s and mid-90s will be too fat by the time they reach middle age. In comparison, about half of the “baby boomer” generation, born just after World War Two, were fat at that age. Being fat as an adult is linked to 13 different types of cancer, says Cancer Research UK, who did the analysis. The list includes breast, bowel and kidney cancer, but only 15% of people in the UK are aware of the link, according to the charity.
Facepalm of The Day
Cops Forced to Apologize for School Program That Told Kids Weed Will Give You ‘Man
Boobs’ In light of recent cannabis legalization measures, representatives of the York Regional Police Department gave a presentation at local schools on the subject, but were quickly forced to apologize and admit that they are “no health experts.” During the presentation, officers made a variety of false claims, most notably that smoking marijuana causes enlarged breasts in men and boys. School resource officer Nigel Cole told the students that, “You have peer pressure and drug dealers telling you about the great effects of marijuana, but I’m here to tell you there are some very negative effects. There are studies that marijuana lowers your testosterone; we call it ‘doobies make boobies’. We’re finding 60 percent of 14-year-olds are developing ‘boobies’. There’s a greater chance of having depression, anxiety, bipolar or schizophrenia. There are addictive qualities, psychosis risks, and it’s been proven to disrupt the neural pathways. The problem is, all this research has not had a chance to catch up to the laws.”
Hour 2 – Advanced Medicine Tuesday 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:
Experts warn not to link autism to violence after Florida shooting Autism experts are cautioning against linking the spectrum disorder to violence in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shooting that killed 17. Several news media outlets included in their coverage of the attack that alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz, 19, had autism, but autism advocacy groups have been quick to say that the two aren’t related. “A massive shooting happens, and it’s a senseless act of violence,” said Dr. Karoly Mirnics, director of the Munroe-Meyer Institute for Genetics and Rehabilitation at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. “As you are searching for answers, you start to notice differences.” If you haven’t interacted with people on the autism spectrum, you might jump to conclusions, the doctor said.
Vaccines on Trial: Michigan President of AAP Calls Catch-Up Vaccination “Torture” IN OAKLAND COUNTY COURT, Michigan AAP President Teresa Holtrop, MD, FAAP testified this morning that a child who is forced to received multiple vaccines to come up to speed on the CDC pediatric vaccination schedule would be subjected to torture. “This poor child would have to be tortured” with multiple vaccines to come up to the vaccine schedule, she testified. (Specific quote: “Because this child has not been immunized, this poor child will have to tortured with six immunizations at one time.”) “It is the balance between whether you would put the child in pain, or don’t do it and put the child at risk” she said.
Scientists want to pull peer review out of the 17th century The technology that drives science forward isforever accelerating, but the same can’t be said for science communication. The basic process still holds many vestiges from its early days — that is the 17th century. Some scientists are pressing to change that critical part of the scientific enterprise. Here’s what they’re confronting: When researchers studying the biology of disease make a discovery, it typically takes nine months for them to get their results published in a journal. ne reason for that delay is it goes through a process of peer review that is both necessary and antiquated. The fate of that paper rests on just two or three scientists who have been asked to review it and decide whether it’s worthy of being published.
US panel recommends new adult vaccine against hepatitis B A federal advisory panel on Wednesday recommended a new vaccine againsthepatitis B. The vaccine, called Heplisav-B, was licensed for use in the U.S. in November and is the first new hepatitis B vaccine in 25 years. Hepatitis B vaccines have been in childhood shots for decades. But vaccination also is recommended for adults at high risk of infection, including people who inject drugs, health care workers and jail inmates. The new vaccine made by Dynavax Technologies Corp. is for adults and uses an additive that boosts the body’s immune response. It is given in two shots over a month. Experts hope that will improve vaccination rates, because other vaccines are given in a harder-to-complete regimen of three doses over six months.
The road to wisdom runs through hardship, study finds A famous Japanese proverb says, “Fall
down seven times, and stand up eight,” implying that there is much to be gained from resilience in the face of obstacles. The idea that learning from hardship can help us to grow as people is one that spans centuries and continents. From movies to pop songs, there are endless works that tell us how our experiences — the difficult ones, in particular — might make us mentally stronger and wiser. Carolyn Aldwin, director of the Center for Healthy Aging Research in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University in Corvallis, set out to investigate whether or not experiencing difficult life events adds to our wisdom.
