Stroke Risk Not Lowered With Antioxidants - Health News - redOrbit

Stroke Risk Not Lowered With Antioxidants - Health News - redOrbit | REAL World Wellness | Scoop.it
According to a new study, taking in as many antioxidants as possible may not be the sure fire way to avoid dementia and strokes as it was previously thought.
Dr Veronica Anderson's insight:

Not all antioxidants are created equal. Most people in this study received their antioxidants from coffee and tea verses other sources of anitoxidants such as berries.

 

I recommend an eating strategy in which antioxidant come from multiple sources verses just a few. This means that eaters must increase the variety of foods in their diet which tend to be a hard sell to older individuals who are more set in their likes and dislikes.

Do You Really Need To Wipe Down The Machines At The Gym?

Do You Really Need To Wipe Down The Machines At The Gym? | REAL World Wellness | Scoop.it

Turns out, our health-minded community is on to something. Warm, moist environments are where bacteria really like to grow, says Dr. Pritish Tosh, M.D., infectious diseases physician at the Mayo Clinic. And if the gym isn't a warm, moist environment, we don't know what is. "There is certainly a potential for transmission of certain kinds of infections," he says.

Dr Veronica Anderson's insight:

To protect yourself from infection, its best to wipe the machine down right before you get on and make sure it is dry before you use it so assure all germy germs are dead.

How Faith Can Affect Therapy

How Faith Can Affect Therapy | REAL World Wellness | Scoop.it
Can belief in God predict how someone responds to mental health treatment? A recent study suggests it might.
Dr Veronica Anderson's insight:

“Patients who had higher levels of belief in God demonstrated more effects of treatment,” said the study’s lead author, David H. Rosmarin, a psychologist at McLean Hospital and director of the Center for Anxiety in New York. “They seemed to get more bang for their buck, so to speak.”

One possible reason for this, he said, is that “patients who had more faith in God also had more faith in treatment. They were more likely to believe that the treatment would help them, and they were more likely to see it as credible and real.”

Physician demand driving more EHRs to go mobile - amednews.com | REAL World Wellness | Scoop.it
Since initial rollouts, vendors are scrambling to develop smartphone and tablet applications that go beyond replicating the desktop record on smaller screens.
Dr Veronica Anderson's insight:

The biggest reported issue with mobile apps, at 95%, was the device's screen size. Eighty-eight percent of physicians said they also experienced difficulties with the ease of movement within the mobile chart. A chief mistake many app developers made initially was to replicate the desktop record onto the mobile app, which 83% of users said they did not like. Instead, doctors preferred simplified versions of the record on their mobile devices.

Concussions do not just take place in American Rules Football. the repetitive impact of a soccer ball to the head - heading - provides a significant trauma to the brain.

Reasearch is taking place to determine the number of impacts that may lead to concussions or cognitive changes.

This has consequences to the young soccer athlete that is playing in year-round soccer.
