What Food Can Protect Your Skin In Winter? | eCellulitis | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it
In the winter, skin can easily become brittle and deathly pale when we are lacking beneficial nutrients that protect the skin. For taut skin, eat Brazilian nuts.

Via Linda Ward
Steve Kingsley's insight:

If cold makes your skin brittle, eat a few Brazilian nuts a day. They are rich in selenium, an antioxidant mineral that improves the elasticity of the skin and also decreases the damage from the sun. If you are allergic to nuts, get the selenium from chicken, eggs or turkey.

The next frontier in heart care: Research aims to personalize treatment with genetics

The next frontier in heart care: Research aims to personalize treatment with genetics | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

Cardiologists have struggled in recent years to score major advances against heart disease and stroke. Although death rates have been dropping steadily since the 1960s, progress combating the twin diseases has plateaued by other measures.

Genetics has had a profound impact on cancer treatment in recent years. Now, heart-disease specialists hope genetics will reveal fresh insight into the interaction between a person's biology, living habits and medications that can better predict who is at risk of a heart attack or stroke.

Heart disease is linked to about 800,000 deaths a year in the U.S. In 2010, some 200,000 of those deaths could have been avoided, including more than 112,300 deaths among people younger than 65. Now, widespread prevalence of obesity and diabetes threatens to undermine such gains. And a large gap remains between how white patients and minorities—especially African-Americans—benefit from effective strategies.

Steve Kingsley's insight:

About 800,000 deaths a year in the U.S. due to heart disease... while better treatments are always welcome, the best -- an least costly -- treatment is prevention = healthy lifestyle!

Seth Bilazarian, MD's curator insight, November 30, 2013 10:33 AM

There's great hope that personalized genetic testing can help with both risk assessment and helping to streamline treatment decisions for patients.  Being able to tell a patient that based on your genetic profile you have a 60% chance of response to treatment A and a 30% chance of response to treatment B would be a fantastic advance in treatment efficiency and cost. Unfortunately, the closest thing we currently have , to this in current application is genetic testing for the drug Plavix (clopidogrel) and the adoption has been fraught with difficulty.  Clinicians and patients wait with eager anticipation of this research.
