Inflammation the cause of heart disease not cholesterol

Inflammation the cause of heart disease not cholesterol | TODAYS HEALTH | Scoop.it

CVD is no longer considered a disorder of lipid (fat) accumulation or elevated cholesterol, but rather a disease process characterized by low-grade inflammation of the vascular (artery) lining and an inappropriate wound healing of the blood vessels.

 

It is similar to a low-grade wound on your skin that does not heal, but it is on the inside. There is now extensive and rapidly growing evidence that inflammation, which is what you get with every wound, plays a critical role in all stages of CVD. That is why if you treat the cholesterol you are treating the symptoms, yet if you treat the inflammation you are treating the underlying cause of the disease...

7 ways your healthcare organization can use social media

7 ways your healthcare organization can use social media | TODAYS HEALTH | Scoop.it

Here are just a few of the things you can use social to do:

1. Build your healthcare brand. Social media can help raise awareness of your brand in your community—whether that's local, regional or national.

2. Highlight your staff and services. Quality healthcare is more important than ever. And social media channels are a great place to highlight your expertise. For example, you might promote blog posts written by specialists, post videos about your service lines, or host Q&A sessions about important health topics.

3. Deepen connections. Social media gives you a chance to commune with healthcare consumers. You can hear—and share—personal and powerful stories and connect directly. And social can give people an everyday look at who you really are—highlighting your caring staff and culture.

4. Discover positives—and problems. People are probably talking about your hospital or health plan on social media already. Maybe they're raving about your classes or the healthcare their loved ones received. But they could be grumbling too. If you're not available on social, you won't know about these conversations. That means you'll miss the opportunity to see successes and show off your great customer service when someone has a complaint.

5. Share trustworthy and valuable health content. Let's face it: Social media can be a hotbed for bad health information that can spread and cause harm, from fad diets to false claims. You can help counter that. By sharing reliable, reader-friendly materials and tips, you can help serve and protect your community—and become a go-to source when people need answers or help.

6. Support your other marketing channels. Looking to bring more people to your website? Hoping to up your hospital or health plan's e-newsletter subscriptions? Social media can get the word out.

7. Communicate with your followers during a crisis. When a tragedy strikes, people often turn to social media to get news and connect with others who are affected. As a healthcare leader, your hospital or health plan can be a valuable voice in those discussions, providing up-to-date information and trustworthy advice.

How LED Lighting May Compromise Your Health

How LED Lighting May Compromise Your Health | TODAYS HEALTH | Scoop.it

In this interview, Dr. Wunsch, a world class expert on photobiology, shares the hidden dangers of LED lighting that most people are completely unaware of. 

 

Near-infrared is important as it primes the cells in your retina for repair and regeneration, which explains why LEDs — which is devoid of infrared — are so harmful for your eyes and health 

One-third of the energy your body consumes comes from the food you eat. The vast majority of the energy your body needs to maintain the systemic equilibrium comes from environmental infrared light exposure

LEDs sabotage health and promote blindness. Limit your exposure to blue light during the daytime and at night. Swap out LEDs for incandescents or low-voltage incandescent halogen lights

Zika: Who launched the fake-epidemic story in Brazil?

Zika: Who launched the fake-epidemic story in Brazil? | TODAYS HEALTH | Scoop.it

Out of nowhere, a month ago, we were told there was an outbreak of microcephaly in Brazil: over 4,000 cases of babies born with small heads and brain impairment. 

 

The Brazilian researchers then went in and took a closer look at that figure. They walked it back and said there were, at best, only 404 confirmed cases of microcephaly.

 

Going from 4,000 cases to 404 cases was a revelation. It means there is no reason to claim, so far, that there is an epidemic of microcephaly. 


Then, another stunner. Of the 404 cases, only 17 “had a relationship with the Zika virus.” Therefore, obviously, there was no Zika-causing-microcephaly story, either. 

 

Even in those 17 cases, the mere presence of the Zika virus was no evidence the virus was causing microcephaly in 17 babies. A virus has to be more than “present.” It has to be there in huge numbers in an individual human. And the Brazilian researchers haven’t provided any evidence that Zika was present in huge numbers in any of the 17 babies. 

There is more.

New Heart Rate Trackers: Is Knowing Your Pulse Useful?

New Heart Rate Trackers: Is Knowing Your Pulse Useful? | TODAYS HEALTH | Scoop.it

Several new fitness trackers, along with heart rate monitors, allow users to constantly measure their heart rate throughout the day. For the average person, this information may be interesting, but it remains to be seen whether it can help make you healthier, experts say.

Heart rate monitors geared toward athletes have been available for years, but recently, fitness trackers aimed at the general public have started to include heart rate as a measure to track along with steps taken, calories burned, distanced walked and sleep.

For example, the Withings Pulse includes a sensor that lets you check your heart rate using your finger, and the Basis B1 has heart rate monitor built into the wristband itself, allowing you to know your rate at any time. (The Basis also graphs this information, so users can see how their heart rate changed during the day or night.)

Knowing your heart rate can be useful when you exercise, because it will help you know whether your exercise is intense enough to provide health benefits, but not so intense that it could cause health problems, said Dr. James Borchers, a sports medicine physician at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. This sweet spot is known as the "target zone," which is about 60 to 80 percent of your maximum heart rate, according to the Cleveland Clinic. [The Best Heart Rate Monitor Watches for Exercise]

Is science pretending both sexes have the same brain? - Futurity

Is science pretending both sexes have the same brain? - Futurity | TODAYS HEALTH | Scoop.it
Neuroscientists have found a key molecular difference between males and females in how synapses are regulated in the hippocampus. The findings suggest that female and male brains may respond differently to drugs, such as endocannabinoids, that target synaptic pathways.

“The importance of studying sex differences in the brain is about making biology and medicine relevant to everyone, to both men and women,” says Catherine S. Woolley, senior author of the study published in the Journal of Neuroscience and a neurobiology professor at Northwestern University. “It is not about things such as who is better at reading a map or why more men than women choose to enter certain professions.”

A drug called URB-597, which regulates a molecule important in neurotransmitter release, had an effect in females that it did not have in males, the research shows. While the study was done in rats, it has broad implications for humans because this drug and others like it are currently being tested in clinical trials in humans.

“Our study starts to put some specifics on what types of molecular differences there are in male and female brains,” Woolley says.
“We don’t know whether this finding will translate to humans or not,” Woolley says, “but right now people who are investigating endocannabinoids in humans probably are not aware that manipulating these molecules could have different effects in males and females.”

The use of Facebook in medical education – A literature review

The use of Facebook in medical education – A literature review | TODAYS HEALTH | Scoop.it
Abstract

Background: The vogue of social media has changed interpersonal communication as well as learning and teaching opportunities in medical education. The most popular social media tool is Facebook. Its features provide potentially useful support for the education of medical students but it also means that some new challenges will have to be faced.

Aims: This review aimed to find out how Facebook has been integrated into medical education. A systematical review of the current literature and grade of evidence is provided, research gaps are identified, links to prior reviews are drawn and implications for the future are discussed.

Method: The authors searched six databases. Inclusion criteria were defined and the authors independently reviewed the search results. The key information of the articles included was methodically abstracted and coded, synthesized and discussed in the categories study design, study participants’phase of medical education and study content.

Results: 16 articles met all inclusion criteria. 45-96% of health care professionals in all phases of their medical education have a Facebook profile. Most studies focused on Facebook and digital professionalism. Unprofessional behavior and privacy violations occurred in 0.02% to 16%. In terms of learning and teaching environment, Facebook is well accepted by medical students. It is used to prepare for exams, share online material, discuss clinical cases, organize face-to-face sessions and exchange information on clerkships. A few educational materials to teach Facebook professionalism were positively evaluated. There seems to be no conclusive evidence as to whether medical students benefit from Facebook as a learning environment on higher competence levels.

Discussion: Facebook influences a myriad of aspects of health care professionals, particularly at undergraduate and graduate level in medical education. Despite an increasing number of interventions, there is a lack of conclusive evidence in terms of its educational effectiveness. Furthermore, we suggest that digital professionalism be integrated in established and emerging competency-based catalogues.
