A Temporary Glitch Or Sign Of The Times?
Exclusive poll: Only half of Americans have faith in democracy Just 51% of Americans said they have faith in the country’s democracy, and 37% say they have lost faith in democracy, according to a new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll conducted in late October.
Why it matters: It suggests that recent political turmoil has caused people to doubt the very foundation of American society, particularly leading up to election day.
Is This What We Have Come To?
Mom looking to swap girl embryo for a boy gets offers from around the globe Ask and you shall receive! The Brooklyn IVF mom who offered to swap her girl embryo for the boy embryo of her dreams is on course to create her perfect family. Couples from across the world contacted The Post after it published a plea from 37-year-old actress “Lisa” to exchange her biological female embryo with a stranger’s boy. (Names have been changed for privacy reasons.) “I’m speechless, excited and just so grateful,” she said Monday. Lisa posted the plea in IVF support groups on Facebook so her kindergartner son could have a baby brother. Now the leading contender is a frozen male embryo from Manhattan — offered by a 40-year-old stay-at-home mom who is desperate for a daughter. “I identify with Lisa’s problem because I have a 5-year-old son and want a girl next,” the woman, “Valerie,” explained. “It’s something I’ve wanted since childhood.”
Superbugs Back In The News..
Superbugs kill 33,000 in Europe every year Superbugs are killing about 33,000 people in Europe every year, according to a new report. The “burden of infection” — measured in the number of cases, attributable deaths and disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) — of these superbugs is equivalent to that of flu, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS combined, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), which conducted the research. These deaths come as a “direct consequence of an infection due to bacteria resistant to antibiotics,” according to the authors of the report, published in the Lancet Infectious Diseaseson Monday. Scientists believe that around 70% of bacteria that cause infection are already resistant to at least one antibiotic that would otherwise be used to combat it. This has led to the development of superbugs — bacteria that have become resistant to the main antibiotics used against them — which present a major threat to global healthcare.
Europe’s Move On Antibiotic Use In Livestock Leaves U.S. In The Dust Again With everything going on in the world, it’s easy to miss some big (and positive) news in the world of food and public health. Especially when it’s been covered primarily by niche trade magazines like Meat & Poultry and Feedstuffs. In a move designed to slow the rise of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” in human health linked to farms, a few days ago the European Parliament approved restrictions on the use of antimicrobials in healthy livestock. (Although “antibiotics” and “antimicrobials” are sometimes used interchangeably, antibiotics are actually a subset of antimicrobials.) The new legislation, which is expected to become law by 2022, bans the use of antibiotics for animals that are important for human medicine and prohibits the use of any antimicrobials in livestock without a prescription from a vet, reports Feedstuffs. Antimicrobials cannot be used to improve the performance or compensate for poor animal husbandry (i.e., crowded, unsanitary conditions), says the new law, which also restricts use of antimicrobials as a preventive/prophylactic measure to single animals — not herds or flocks, as is currently de-facto practice.
Survey finds parents commonly save, share leftover antibiotics A new survey has found that among a national sample of parents, nearly half save leftover antibiotics prescribed for their children rather than dispose of them. And nearly three-quarters of those parents give the leftover antibiotics to someone else without consulting a doctor. The findings are from an abstract to be presented today at the annual conference of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Tamara Kahane, a medical student at New York University Medical School and one of the authors of the abstract, said the idea for the survey was hatched when she and her colleagues at a developmental and behavioral pediatrics office noticed something interesting: a lot of patients were saying that they had already taken antibiotics to “self-treat” illnesses, without any prior medical consultation. A subsequent review of parenting blogs and advice websites revealed a similar trend.
Is This For Real?
Oumuamua: Cigar-shaped interstellar object may have been an alien probe, Harvard paper claims A mysterious cigar-shaped object spotted tumbling through our solar system last year may have been an alien spacecraft sent to investigate Earth, astronomers from Harvard University have suggested. The object, nicknamed ‘Oumuamua, meaning “a messenger that reaches out from the distant past” in Hawaiian, was discovered in October 2017 by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope in Hawaii. Since its discovery, scientists have been at odds to explain its unusual features and precise origins, with researchers first calling it a comet and then an asteroid before finally deeming it the first of its kind: a new class of “interstellar objects.” A new paper by researchers at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics raises the possibility that the elongated dark-red object, which is 10 times as long as it is wide and traveling at speeds of 196,000 mph, might have an “artificial origin.” “‘Oumuamua may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization,” they wrote in the paper, which has been submitted to the Astrophysical Journal Letters.
Hour 2 – Genetics vs Lifestyle
Your Grandma may be old, but that doesn’t mean you will be, researchers say Think you’ll be around for a long time because Grandma lived to a ripe old age? Not so fast: Genetics has only a small impact on longevity, a new study involving more than 400 million people suggests. Longevity is mostly decided by lifestyle, with less than 10% down to DNA, according to the study, published Tuesday in the journal Genetics. “We know that people who research their families are very interested in the topic of longevity,” said Cathy Ball, a co-author of the study and chief scientific officer at Ancestry, a consumer genetics company that provides an online family history resource. Genetic differences explain just 15% to 30% of longevity, previous studies suggest, and it’s the non-genetic differences between us — such as how we eat and whether we have a fatal accident — that explain why one person had a longer life than another.

US NATIONAL TOXICOLOGY PROGRAM SENIOR SCIENTIST: “LINK BETWEEN RADIO FREQUENCYRADIATION AND TUMORS IN MALE RATS IS REAL” AFTER LARGEST CELL PHONE RADIATION STUDY PUBLISHED The National Toxicology Program (NTP) has recently released its final reports on rat and mouse studies involving radio frequency radiation (RFR) as used in cell phone and wireless technologies. The $30 million NTP studies took more than 10 years to complete and are the most comprehensive assessment, to date, of health effects in animals exposed to RFR with modulations used in 2G and 3G cell phones. 2G and 3G networks were standard when the NTP studies were designed. However, the limitations and results leave much to be desired. The rapid public rollout of RFR tech has done so while the research, medical and health regulatory communities are still years behind in determining the ill-health effects on the greater populations exposed to them. The NTP concluded there is clear evidence that male rats exposed to high levels of RFR, like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones, developed cancerous heart tumors. There was also some evidence of tumors in the brain and adrenal gland of exposed male rats. These studies did not investigate the types of RFR used for Wi-Fi or 5G networks and RFR exposure in the study was intermittent, 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off, totaling about nine hours each day. “5G is an emerging technology that hasn’t really been defined yet. From what we currently understand, it likely differs dramatically from what we studied,” said said Michael Wyde, Ph.D., lead toxicologist on the studies. From the information already known about 5G tech, the words “differs dramatically” describes a more powerful overall network with more concentrated, continuous radio frequency saturation coming to our major cites and then local communities.
How Does Your State Rank?
2018’s Fattest States in America “Fat” is becoming the new normal in America. According to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than seven in 10 U.S. adults aged 20 and older are either overweight or obese. Rates are lower for children and adolescents but have risen drastically in the past few decades. So prevalent has America’s obesity problem grown that the weight-loss industry continues to expand. In 2017, the U.S. weight loss and diet control market was valued at $66 billion. The U.S. spends in total nearly $200 billion in annual health care costs related to obesity. New findings by the Physical Activity Council suggest a need for more aggressive efforts to combat the issue. According to the report, 82.4 million Americans aged 6 and older were completely inactive in 2017. Lack of physical activity is a leading cause of obesity, in addition to genetics, emotional instability and sleeplessness. But the problem is bigger in some states than in others. To determine where obesity and overweight most dangerously persist, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 25 key metrics. Our data set ranges from share of obese and overweight population to sugary-beverage consumption among adolescents to obesity-related health care costs. Read on for our findings, expert commentary from a panel of researchers and a full description of our methodology.
