How the World ’s First Loneliness Minister Will Tackle ‘the Sad Reality of Modern Life’

Wed, 25 Apr 2018 09:33:19 +0100

Tracey Crouch knows what it’s like to feel frighteningly alone. After giving birth to her first child, Freddie, in 2016, the British lawmaker says that despite having a “network of friends, family and a wonderful partner,” she began feeling cut off from the world. It wasn’t a new sensation; Crouch says she also suffered from depression six years earlier, when she first became a member of parliament. It felt like she was “in a very dark place, a very lonely place” she recalls. Crouch’s experiences may inform her new role as the country’s first Minister for Loneliness, a role created by Prime Minister Theresa May in January. “For far too many people, loneliness is the sad reality of modern life,” May said when announcing the new pos...

Uranus Smells Terrible. There, We Said it

Tue, 24 Apr 2018 15:55:06 +0100

Let’s stop pretending, shall we? Because really, we’re not fooling anyone. Uranus is funny. It was funny when you were twelve, and it’s funny now. It was certainly funny when I was a boy and went to a space-themed summer camp where all the bunks were named after planets and Uranus happened to be where we stored the sports equipment, meaning that every now and then a counselor would say, “Somebody put those bats in Uranus,” and then would have to walk over and put them there himself because we were too busy falling over one another laughing. And it was absolutely funny in 1986 when the Voyager 2 spacecraft flew by the planet and headlines around the country said, “Probe Approaches Uranus.” And now it’s funny again, with the news that Uranus, ...

Diet Soda, Sweeteners Can Still Cause Diabetes, Study Finds

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 22:14:03 +0100

CBS Local – Although many people think diet soda is a healthier option than other sugary drinks, a new study has found that having beverages using artificial sweeteners can still lead to diabetes and obesity. Researchers from the Medical College of Wisconsin say a study of rats has revealed that artificial sweeteners, commonly used in zero-calorie sodas, actually did as much harm to the body as a high-sugar diet. “We also observed that replacing these sugars with non-caloric artificial sweeteners leads to negative changes in fat and energy metabolism,” lead researcher Brian Hoffmann said in a press release. The findings, presented at the Experimental Biology conference in San Diego, show that the rats given artificial sweeteners experienced severe changes in the makeu...



Doctors Warned About Prescribing Sedatives And Opioids

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 21:45:25 +0100

BOSTON (CBS) — Opioids can be risky when taken alone, but when taken with sedatives called benzodiazepines, the combination can be particularly dangerous, even deadly. Yet, according to a recent study in JAMA Psychiatry, the chances of receiving a new opioid prescription is 83%  higher for patients on benzodiazepines compared with the general population. Benzodiazepines include medications like Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, and Ativan. Both opioids and benzodiazepines can cause drowsiness and can suppress the part of the brain which controls your breathing, so if you use too much of either one or use them in combination, you could essentially stop breathing. Doctors are urged to avoid prescribing opioids like oxycodone and morphine to patients on sedatives, and patients themselve...

Strength-Training Can Help Older Women With Aging

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 21:44:24 +0100

BOSTON (CBS) — Would you like to ward off the effects of aging? Strength-training may do the trick. Researchers from the University of Buffalo looked at 46 women over the age of sixty and found that older women who engage in a high level of daily physical activity may be able to reverse certain markers of aging, such as slow walking and decreased function. Resistance training, in particular, can preserve muscle strength and endurance, if started at a younger age. Many women said they stay active by doing light housekeeping or light gardening, and while that is better than nothing, it may not be enough to counteract the effects of aging on the body. The researchers advise women to walk more and consult a physical therapist or trainer to learn about exercises that will build muscle str...

CDC Expands Warning In E. Coli Outbreak From Arizona Lettuce

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 22:41:01 +0100

YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — The Centers for Disease Control is expanding a warning about contaminated lettuce from Arizona that has now sickened dozens of people in several states. The CDC said Friday that consumers are being advised to avoid whole heads and hearts of romaine lettuce that may have come from the Yuma region. Previous warnings only applied to chopped romaine by itself or as part of salads and salad mixes. Officials say people at an Alaska correctional facility recently reported feeling ill after eating romaine lettuce that was traced back to lettuce heads harvested in Yuma. The E. coli outbreak has infected 53 people in 16 states. At least 31 have been hospitalized, including five with kidney failure. No deaths have been reported. Yuma is roughly 185 miles (298 kilometers) southwes...

Feminine Hygiene Products Could Be Doing More Harm Than Good

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 21:40:52 +0100

BOSTON (CBS) – While douching is largely a thing of the past, most women still turn to feminine products as part of their regular hygiene routine but they could be doing more harm than good. Canadian researchers found gel sanitizers were associated with an eight times higher risk of yeast infection and a 20 times higher risk of a bacterial infection. Some products were also associated with a greater risk of urinary tract infections. If you go down the feminine care aisle at your local drugstore you’ll see cream, gels, washes, wipes intended to make you feel cleaner or fresher, but while we don’t know if these products are actually causing infections, they could be disrupting the normal population of bacteria and other organisms that ward off infection.

Study: Teens Who Use Marijuana Have Slight Reductions In Cognitive Function

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 21:38:54 +0100

BOSTON (CBS) – A new study in the journal JAMA Psychiatry finds that teens and young adults who use marijuana frequently are more likely to have slight reductions in cognitive functioning. Researchers reviewed nearly 69 studies from more than four decades and found that young people who said they were heavy marijuana users were more likely to have slightly lower scores on tests of memory, problem solving and processing speed. We’ve known that marijuana can slow certain brain functions like learning, memory and attention span, but perhaps what was more surprising in this study is that if young people stopped using the drug for more than 72 hours, the cognitive effects seemed to fade. That said, other research has suggested that marijuana could cause irreversible damage to young ...

6 Ways to Navigate Anxiety

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 14:00:02 +0100

Anxiety is frustrating. You feel like a stranger inside your own body. You feel like there are mini explosions inside your head, inside your heart. Sometimes, you shake. Sometimes, you sweat. Sometimes, the sensations are hard to describe: You simply feel off or downright terrible. Your thoughts race each other around a very large track for hours. Sometimes, these thoughts speak of inevitable, impending doom. Sometimes, they’re more subtle, whispering and strengthening your self-doubt. And, naturally, you let these anxious thoughts and sensations dictate your life. You let your anxiety determine whether you go to the movies, whether you ask for a raise. You let it determine whether you bring up a certain topic with your boss (you don’t), whether you tell a friend no (you don’t). You ...
