PSA blood test for prostate cancer doesn't save lives | Health | Scoop.it
Men have long been encouraged to have routine tests for prostate-specific antigen as a way to detect prostate cancer early. Although early detection should save lives, it doesn't seem to work that way for slow-growing prostate cancer.

How Can We Know if Supplements Are Safe if We Do Not Know What Is in Them?

How Can We Know if Supplements Are Safe if We Do Not Know What Is in Them? | Health | Scoop.it

Americans spend over $20 billion annually on dietary supplements.1 Although supplements are regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, there is no requirement for supplement manufacturers to demonstrate efficacy or safety of their products prior to marketing them. However, companies may not include unapproved ingredients. It turns out that even this minimal requirement is not fulfilled. Harel et al identified 237 dietary supplements that were recalled by the FDA owing to inclusion of unapproved drug ingredients. Given the limited regulation of these products, it is likely that the number of recalls grossly underestimates the number of products on sale with unapproved ingredients. Dietary supplements should be treated with the same rigor as pharmaceutical drugs and with the same goal: to protect consumer health.

Personal devices that monitor your health in real time.  It doesn't get any more "local" than this.

"Opportunities for Apple are wide open. Krasner expects Apple will tackle sensor technologies and remote patient monitoring, wearable devices (beginning with the iWatch), and potentially also weight management later down the line."

Three medical device trends that are saving lives

Three medical device trends that are saving lives | Health | Scoop.it

If there’s one thing we can always count on in the medical device world, it’s the steady beat of progress. We look for the big idea that will save lives, make doctors’ jobs easier and the medical field more efficient — thus saving costs. As designers, we keep our eyes on innovations in the medical device world. Here are three trends that are making an impact.

 

Making medical devices smaller and portable

Access to effective care often requires medical devices which are smaller, lighter and more portable. In order to go big, we need to think small. Interestingly, this trend is prevalent in both resource poor and resource rich healthcare systems

 

The drive towards earlier and more accurate diagnosis

Current cancer detection and monitoring methods can be extremely invasive or poorly targeted, resulting in low treatment efficacy and unpleasant side effects

 

Using data for prevention

There is a growing desire for medical devices — including those that are wearable — to track and monitor personal health. There are countless smart phone apps that track health-related issues, such as restful sleep, exercise, and diet. The current trend is towards devices that support and tap into our increasingly endless desire for more information.

A study of 12 men found that glycemic load—distinct from calories or sweetness—can alter brain function and promote overeating. Is there such a thing as food addiction? A study using brain imaging suggests that high-glycemic foods may trigger the same brain mechanism as substance abuse.

The benefit of the diets which reduce sugar and carbohydrates such as Glycemic Index, Atkins, South Beach, Belly Fat Cure are in part due to the reduced sugar effect on the brain.

From the article: 

This study narrows the difference to one variable only—the glycemic load—and indicates that this factor, distinct from calories or sweetness, can alter brain function and promote overeating. “These findings suggest that limiting high-glycemic index carbohydrates like white bread and potatoes could help obese individuals reduce cravings and control the urge to overeat,
