It will be a great cake!” At nearly 5 years old, Charlotte is an avid baker — a talent she picked up not at culinary school, but at the Yawkey Family Inn.

(OAKLAND, Calif.) — Scientists for the first time have tried editing a gene inside the body in a bold attempt to permanently change a person’s DNA to try to cure a disease. The experiment was done Monday in California on 44-year-old Brian Madeux. Through an IV, he received billions of copies of a corrective gene and a genetic tool to cut his DNA in a precise spot. “It’s kind of humbling” to be the first to test this, said Madeux, who has a metabolic disease called Hunter syndrome. “I’m willing to take that risk. Hopefully it will help me and other people.” Signs of whether it’s working may come in a month; tests will show for sure in three months. If it’s successful, it could give a major boost to the fledgling field of gene ther...

"Obamacare" -- Three Keys for Improvement

Sat, 31 Dec 2016 20:14:58 +0100

By Dr. Sudip Bose, MD Dec. 31, 2016 -- As the 2016 presidential campaign came to a close and we elected a new president, polls showed that of the half-dozen things that most concerned Americans, health care was one of the major topics. No real surprise there. There are advocates for the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, who say that statistics show that 21 million more Americans got health care who didn't have it before, and that those least able to afford it were the ones who benefitted from the ACA. There are advocates against the Affordable Care Act who point to what they say is a broken system, with insurers exiting the marketplace and premiums rising by double and in some cases triple digits -- so much so as to render plans in the "Affordable" Care Act unaffordable. ...

Study Confirms There Is No Safe Level of Smoking

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 21:39:01 +0100

By Stacy SimonPeople who smoke as little as 1 cigarette a day over their lifetime still have a greater risk of early death than people who have never smoked, according to a study by researchers from the National Cancer Institute. The researchers say this shows that no level of cigarette smoking is safe.The study included 290,215 adults ages 59 to 82 who answered questions about how many cigarettes they smoked during different periods throughout their lives. Researchers then followed the participants for an average 6.6 years. Results showed that people who consistently smoked an average of less than 1 cigarette per day had a 64% higher risk of dying earlier than people who had never smoked. Those who smoked 1 to 10 cigarettes a day had an 87% higher risk of dying earlier than people who nev...

Does vitamin D cut lung infection risk in older adults?

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 14:28:00 +0100

Conclusion This randomised controlled trial assessed high dose supplementation with vitamin D for a period of 12 months as a way of preventing acute respiratory infections in older adults in long term care. This study was well designed and reduced risk of bias where possible. However, there are some important limitations which affect the reliability of the findings: The study has a small sample size and the authors state they did not manage to reach their target recruitment level; this means the study did not have the statistical power required for certainty in the findings. There were some differences in the characteristics of the participants at the start of the study, including differences in body mass index, smoking status, heart disease and respiratory diseases. Ideally, differenc...



How to Quit Smoking

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 21:09:30 +0100

By Stacy Simon Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States. Since the release of the Surgeon General’s Report on Smoking and Health 50 years ago, there have been 20 million deaths due to tobacco. Almost half the deaths from 12 different types of cancer combined – including lung, voice box, throat, esophagus, and bladder cancers – are attributable to cigarette smoking alone. In addition to cancer, smoking greatly increases the risk of debilitating long-term lung diseases like emphysema and chronic bronchitis. It also raises the risk for heart attack, stroke, blood vessel diseases, and eye diseases. Half of all smokers who keep smoking will eventually die from a smoking-related illness. That’s why it&rsq...

5 Lessons From Hillary Clinton's Pneumonia Diagnosis

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 21:04:44 +0100

Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is recovering from a case of pneumonia she was diagnosed with last Friday. She was treated and advised to rest, but according to her doctor became “overheated and dehydrated” Sunday at a 9/11 memorial service.  Footage that showed Clinton needing to be helped to her car as she departed the service for a brief rest at her daughter’s apartment fueled speculation about medical conspiracies and “raised questions” about the state of her health and fitness to run for president. But the truth is that pneumonia is a common and highly treatable illness for which people Clinton’s age, 68, are at high risk. With proper treatment, the symptoms will likely disappear without Clinton feeling anything more than ...

The patient had presented at a local clinic 2 days previously with a nonproductive cough and fever of 24-h duration. Left basilar crackles were heard on physical examination. Chest X ray revealed no significant findings, and vital signs were normal with the exception of slight tachycardia (76 beats per minute) and a fever of 101.7 °F. The patient was diagnosed with bronchitis/early community-acquired pneumonia and sent home on a 1-week regimen of levofloxacin. (Source: Clinical Microbiology Newsletter)



Marijuana: Health effects of recreational and medical use

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 13:30:58 +0100

Marijuana is widely used, especially in adolescents and young adults. In the US, there are about 20 million users (about 7.5% of people aged 12 or older). Marijuana is a mind-altering (psychoactive) drug. Similar to hemp, it comes from the cannabis plant. The plant’s primary drug effects come from the chemical delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or “THC.” Marijuana is smoked, “vaped” (inhaling the vapor), or ingested in foods or teas. Over the last few decades, the concentration of THC in the cannabis plant has been increasing. In addition, the plant extracts are more potent. Short-term effects of marijuana Marijuana is often used for its “high,” and can make people feel more relaxed, alter the senses, and cause time distortion. It can also impair thinking, judgment, coordination, ...

Wildfires Can Seriously Harm Your Health, Even If You Live Far Away

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 20:27:17 +0100

August is peak wildfire season in the western United States, and unfortunately for those who like to enjoy the summer weather, that means staying indoors whenever a new wildfire starts burning.  The recent Sand fire, located 37 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, burned more than 41,000 acres, prompted the evacuation of 20,000 people and destroyed 19 homes. The Soberanes wildfire, in Garrapata State Park just north of Big Sur in California, has burned over 45,000 acres and is only 25 percent contained. But large wildfires can also cluster in parts of the country, like the High Plains, Hawaii and Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, the Tennessee Valley and southern Appalachians. Aside from wreaking havoc on wildlife habitats, displacing people from their homes, and even killing people (a...

The trouble with antibiotics

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 13:30:09 +0100

Most people are aware of the potential downsides of taking an antibiotic. These side effects can range from allergic reactions to stomach upset, diarrhea, mental confusion, and in some cases, Clostridium difficile colitis – painful colon inflammation caused by a disruption in the normal balance of bacteria in the large intestine. However, more recently, concerns regarding the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria are increasingly in the news. “Antimicrobial stewardship” promotes the appropriate use of antimicrobial agents, including antibiotics, in order to improve patient outcomes, reduce drug resistance, and limit the spread of infections caused by drug-resistant bacteria. This concept is not new. Calls for optimizing the use of antibiotics, particularly in outpatient settings...

Lung disease in smokers who don’t have COPD

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 13:30:16 +0100

This study affirms that these people can experience serious health consequences, even without COPD. This finding also brings into question how we should classify chronic respiratory disease. So far, we haven’t determined a way of classifying those who have symptoms but don’t quite meet the usual criteria for COPD, and we also don’t have much data or guidance on how best to treat them. In the meantime, quitting smoking remains the best way to lower your chances of getting COPD — and the best way to lessen any respiratory symptoms you’re having. Most smokers who stop will feel better, with less cough and mucus, within 12 months. They will also lower their risk of getting (and dying from) smoking-related illnesses. Though the benefits of stopping smoking are greater at young...

Pot And Cigarette Smoking Have At Least One Health Consequence In Common

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 15:51:31 +0100

By: Agata Blaszczak-Boxe, Contributing Writer Published: 06/02/2016 10:49 AM EDT on LiveScience Middle-age people who have smoked marijuana for many years may have a higher risk of developing gum disease, according to a new study. However, the study did not find a link between long-term marijuana use and several other health problems associated with cigarette smoking, the researchers said. "What we're seeing is that cannabis may be harmful in some respects, but possibly not in every way," Avshalom Caspi, a co-author of the study and a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Duke University, said in a statement. "We need to recognize that heavy recreational cannabis use does have some adverse consequences, but overall damage to physical health is not apparent in this study." [11 Odd Fac...



Don't Leave Your Loved One Breathless

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 16:47:22 +0100

For so many, Father's Day means a backyard barbecue and time with family and friends. For me, it's all those things and more. I'm a dad myself to three beautiful girls, and I love the opportunity to celebrate all the great things about being a father. But before I was a dad, I had a dad. A dad I loved. Sadly, I lost him to a devastating and rare lung disease called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, or "IPF." It's been 14 years, and not a single day goes by that I don't think about him. And every year on Father's Day, the memories of our time together are always a little more pronounced. My dad was a strong, vibrant man -- and I looked up to him. He was a huge force in shaping my music career, always telling me I could be whomever and whatever I wanted -- and never letting me give up. Ironica...



Do These Four Things to Cut Your Cancer Risk

Quitting smoking is not easy but your health depends on it. Not only does smoking vastly in...



What The Government's Latest Asian-American Health Report Got Wrong

Fri, 20 May 2016 13:30:01 +0100

Asian-Americans fare better than the general population on five different measures of health, according to a new national study.  But though it may appear that the "model minority" myth about the 15 million Asians in America extends even to physical and mental health, experts say this finding obscures the truth about vast disparities between Asian subgroups -- and that the study's methodology may have prevented the elderly, immigrants and people who don't speak English from contributing to a more nuanced picture of the health status of Asians in America.  The report, published by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics, found that, as a whole, the group has better-than-average measures of chronic disease, sel...
