Air pollution a leading cause of cancer - U.N. agency

Air pollution a leading cause of cancer - U.N. agency | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

The air we breathe is laced with cancer-causing substances and is being officially classified as carcinogenic to humans, the World Health Organization's cancer agency said on Thursday.

 

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) cited data indicating that in 2010, 223,000 deaths from lung cancer worldwide resulted from air pollution, and said there was also convincing evidence it increases the risk of bladder cancer.

93 Scientists Declare: No Consensus on GMO Safety

93 Scientists Declare: No Consensus on GMO Safety | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

A group of 93 scientists from all over the world deplore the disinformation over the safety of GMOs and expose the lack of empirical and scientific evidence on which the false claims of “consensus” on safety are being made 

 

"Whether to continue and expand the introduction of GM crops and foods into the human food and animal feed supply, and whether the identified risks are acceptable or not, are decisions that involve socioeconomic considerations beyond the scope of a narrow scientific debate and the currently unresolved biosafety research agendas.

 

These decisions must therefore involve the broader society. They should, however, be supported by strong scientific evidence on the long-term safety of GM crops and foods for human and animal health and the environment, obtained in a manner that is honest, ethical, rigorous, independent, transparent, and sufficiently diversified to compensate for bias.

 

Decisions on the future of our food and agriculture should not be based on misleading and misrepresentative claims that a “scientific consensus” exists on GMO safety."

Poor sleep tied to Alzheimer's-like brain changes

Older adults who don't sleep well have more of the brain plaques that are hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease, a new study suggests.

 

The finding doesn't prove that not getting enough shut-eye causes the build-up of beta-amyloid plaques and leads to dementia rather than the other way around.

 

 


Via Ray and Terry's
Steve Kingsley's insight:

Poor sleep can lead to cognitive decline - one reason is that it doesn't allow all of the metabolic byproducts, produced during the day, "wash out" of the brain.

Health Myth: Can Alcohol Help You Build Muscle and Lose Weight?

Health Myth: Can Alcohol Help You Build Muscle and Lose Weight? | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

According to a 2011 study published in The Archives of Internal Medicine, moderate drinkers tend to be thinner than teetotalers. Why? Ethanol—whether it's in wine, on the rocks, or in a pilsner glass—improves your body's response to the hormone insulin, which regulates blood sugar. Keep your blood sugar in check and you can prevent your body from shuttling glucose straight into your fat cells. One Harvard School of Public Health study even found that having one to two alcoholic drinks a day can reduce your risk of diabetes by 36 percent.
Plus, by increasing your heart rate, alcohol actually fires up your fat burners for about an hour after you take your last sip, according to Eric Rimm, an associate professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard Medical School and chairman of the 2010 review of alcohol in the federal dietary guidelines. One recent study from Japan even suggests that if you're a microbrew man, your post-drink metabolic boost might last a little longer. Why? The naturally occurring flavonoids in beer's hops can increase muscle mass. And as you know, more muscles equal a faster metabolism—not to mention a chiseled bod.
