Open Season on Salt: What the Science on Hypertension Really Shows

Open Season on Salt: What the Science on Hypertension Really Shows | Wednesday Wellness Word | Scoop.it

My comment:  This article does a good job explaing that the short term risk of high salt intake is being exaggerated in kids. BUT as an adult cardiologist I can attest to many patients who strugle with this in their mid life.  By acquiring a taste (and compulsion) for salty foods may patients suffer lasting and difficult consequences on the  cardiovascular system including congrestive heart failure and kidney disease.  Changing their taste buds is often a major challenge for disease management becasue of what has been learned early in life

=========================

The latest news reports about salt are enough to make a parent ponder a household ban on pizza and cold cuts. A study published last week in Pediatrics found that children eat, on average, 3.4 grams of sodium daily—more than twice the amount recommended for adults by the Institute of Medicine.

Insulin “docking“ breakthrough could lead to better diabetes treatments

Insulin “docking“ breakthrough could lead to better diabetes treatments | Wednesday Wellness Word | Scoop.it

Despite decades of study, scientists remained unsure as to how insulin binds to the insulin receptor on the surface of cells to allow them to take up sugar from the blood and transform it into energy.

 

Now, a definitive answer has now been found with a team of scientists capturing the first three-dimensional images of insulin “docking” to its receptor.

 

It is hoped that the new knowledge can be exploited to develop new and improved insulin medications to treat type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

You gotta love the magazines that offer us a humorous look at a real problem.  Haven't seen too many jokes on women not being in the C-suite...or board of directors.  let's find some great opportunities to raise awareness.  Best joke submitted to MBA Women International on Linkedin will get a free "scholarship" to the 30th anniversary Leadership Conference and Career Fair in Boston, October 3-5!  Don't miss the entrepreneur track this year as well as the business marketplace.

Time to raise awareness. 

Erika Watson's curator insight, January 8, 2013 5:10 PM

It's unbelievable that young women are taught classes at University to "avoid rape" in the States and no class "don't rape", at freshman orientation.

As always, Liza Donnelly uses her creative talent to foster a change in our mind first, in our representations, so that it eventually translates into action.

Bravo Liza!

Diabetes Study Ends Early With a Surprising Result

Diabetes Study Ends Early With a Surprising Result | Wednesday Wellness Word | Scoop.it
Diet and weight loss did not prevent heart attacks and strokes in overweight and obese people with Type 2 diabetes.

A large federal study of whether diet and weight loss can prevent heart attacks and strokes in overweight and obese people with Type 2 diabetes has ended two years ahead of schedule because the intensive program did not help.  Many have assumed diet and exercise would help, in part because short-term studies had found that those strategies lowered blood sugar levels, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Still, medical experts said there were many benefits to diet and exercise even if they did not reduce cardiovascular disease in people with diabetes.

About 25 million Americans have Type 2 diabetes. Many are overweight or obese. On average, the disease increases heart disease risk by 2 to 2 ½ times.  Study randomly assigned 5,145 overweight or obese people with Type 2 diabetes to either a rigorous diet and exercise regimen or to sessions in which they got general health information. The diet involved 1,200 to 1,500 calories a day for those weighing less than 250 pounds and 1,500 to 1,800 calories a day for those weighing more. The exercise program was at least 175 minutes a week of moderate exercise.

UnitedHealth: Cost of diabetes could be $3.35 trillion by 2020 | Drug Store News

Richard Meyer's curator insight, January 24, 2013 12:34 PM

The number of Americans diagnosed with diabetes and the related costs of the disease could reach catastrophic proportions, according to new research by the UnitedHealth Group.

The new projections are alarming, as more than 50% of Americans could have prediabetes or diabetes by 2020, which could carry a healthcare price tag of $3.35 trillion over the decade. New estimates show diabetes and prediabetes will account for an estimated 10% of total healthcare spending by the end of the decade at an annual cost of almost $500 billion — up from an estimated $194 billion this year, UnitedHealth said in its new report, “The United States of Diabetes: Challenges and Opportunities in the Decade Ahead.”

Marion Chapsal's curator insight, January 5, 2013 4:15 AM

 Business schools could become more like the agora of ancient Athens, a place where commerce had its place alongside the academy, where philosophers discussed the meaning of the good life and how best to achieve it; a place of dialogue where citizens collectively addressed the limits of their knowledge. For this, business schools might recruit graduates from other disciplines, such the arts, humanities and the sciences, and create innovative courses to help future leaders imagine products and services which fulfil a more social need. 

This will not be easy. It requires a difficult balancing act between the intellectual, emotional and spiritual. But if we are to create a new business model out of the chaos of a crisis to which business schools contributed, we will need to take a long hard look at how leadership is taught in our schools. Business as usual is no longer an option.

The transition from the prevalence of more non-communicable diseases is imminent in areas where communicable disease is currently more frequent due to increased availability of healthcare and modernization in the developing world. Additionally, such nations in transition will experience a significant decline in infant and child mortality rates; however life expectancy between rich and poor countries is still expected to be vastly different.
