#836 Who’s More Likely to Survive, Men or Women?

Posted on: Tue, Jan 23, 2018, at 6:01 am

Who do you think has a higher survival rate when it comes to crisis, famine, or epidemics, men or women? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. New research from Duke University shows that women are better at surviving crisis then men are. The researchers went back 250 years and analyzed mortality of those who lived through famine, disease and natural disaster. I don’t find this surprising because even in the blue zones, the areas where people live the longest, the women still outlive the men by an average of six months. Some scientists believe that estrogen may play a significant role due to its ability to boost and protect the immune system. I think it’s just innate ? even in newborns that are born premature, the survival rate of females is higher than males. And others believe that it’s about the survival of the human race because women have the babies. Don’t take this personally guys, it’s just a fact.

#835 Screening Colonoscopies May Be Replaced with Mechanical Capsule

Posted on: Mon, Jan 22, 2018, at 6:01 am

Wouldn’t it be great if screening colonoscopies could be a thing of the past? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Listen up, because RMIT University may be my favorite new place. They just invented a small capsule that you swallow the same way you would swallow medicine. It measures the gases within the colon looking for disturbances of the gut microbiome as well as cancer. It just passed human trials, meaning that it’s safe and now its going into full research mode. If it passes (no pun intended) the clinical trials, it could revolutionize who we analyze the gut, perhaps doing away with screening colonoscopies and that dreaded cleanout process. One even more interesting finding from early studies ? they proved that the inside of the colon actually contains oxygen which before physicians believed there was no free oxygen within the colon. And the more fiber in the diet, the more oxygen the gut holds. This may be why fiber has proven to prevent cancer and attribute to better overall gut health. There is so much to learn about healthy living and new research and that’s why Executive Medicine of Texas, a global leader … Continue reading #835 Screening Colonoscopies May Be Replaced with Mechanical Capsule

#834 New Weekly Treatment for HIV

Posted on: Sat, Jan 20, 2018, at 6:00 am

Did you know there is a new treatment for HIV? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. There is around 36.7 million people around the world living with HIV or AIDS. Not all of them are old cases, nearly 2 million people are recently infected. Although, HIV does not carry the same risks as it did in the past. People today are living with HIV and current medication regiments keep HIV from turning into AIDS, a life threatening decline in the body’s immune system. One of the ongoing issues for people with HIV is their ability to stay compliant with taking a combination of drugs twice a day or more. Now, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have developed a single capsule that can slowly release a whole weeks-worth of antiretroviral medication. This is a great thing because, if we can keep compliance numbers high, we can keep people from developing AIDS. The capsule, which has currently only been tested on animals, slowly releases enough medication each day of the week. Medical advancements are happening each and every day. This is why this Stay Young Medical Minute is being brought to … Continue reading #834 New Weekly Treatment for HIV

#833 How Veggies Protect Against Colon Cancer

Posted on: Fri, Jan 19, 2018, at 6:00 am

Want to prevent cancer, specifically colon cancer? Make changes to your diet. This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Your whole life you have heard that you need to eat more vegetables and fresh fruit. Even if they didn’t know why, our ancestors new it made us healthier. According to the Journal Nature Communications, eating more veggies improves your gut bacteria and allows for the production of short chain fatty acids. These short chain fatty acids get into your gut lining and change the cells’ behavior, ultimately influencing your genetic expression.  Short chain fatty acids also regulate croto-ny-lations and when these are regulated your risk of cancer, particularly colon cancer goes down. This is just another reason why you need to shop the perimeter of the store. Fill your cart with as many fresh veggies and fruits as you can. Small changes like this can have a big impact on your future health. There is so much great information about how you can prevent cancer and other life-changing illnesses.

#832 Night Shift Linked to Cancer Risk

Posted on: Thu, Jan 18, 2018, at 6:00 am

A Chinese study released in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention showed that women who work the night shift, or irregular hours are one fifth more likely to develop cancers, particularly skin, breast, and lung cancers. This is significant for US residents because according to the CDC as many as 15 million of our workers work the night shift. We already know from other studies that the night shift is linked to increased risk of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease because it significantly disrupts the body’s circadian rhythm, or internal clock. Now before you say that the research was only applied to Chinese people, you need to know that the research team looked at over  3.9 Million participants and more than 114,000 cancer cases. The patient demographic varied as participants were from Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America. This just goes to show how important Good quality sleep is.

#830 Best Nutrition Tip for Ex-Smokers

Posted on: Tue, Jan 16, 2018, at 6:02 am

So, you’re a smoker who has quit. Did you know adding two things to your diet can help repair years of lung damage? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Smoking can damage your lungs and it can take years to repair that damage. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health found that adding fresh fruit and tomatoes to your diet may help stop the decline in lung function. The researchers looked at over 650 adults from three different European countries. They found that those who consumed two tomatoes and three servings of fruit per day had better outcomes over a ten year period. This is just another study showing the link between nutrition and overall body health. Even if you’re not a past smoker, the research showed that having these things in your diet helps with maintaining lung health as you age. So, put fresh fruit berries and tomatoes on your grocery list each week.

#829 Is Alcohol Okay In Moderation?

Posted on: Mon, Jan 15, 2018, at 6:02 am

There has been so much research on alcohol, but is it ok in moderation? Well, this new research may hold the answer. This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Cancer Research UK released some incredible evidence that alcohol, in any amount, may harm your body on a cellular level. The research looked at mice who were given diluted alcohol and after the researchers performed a chromosome analysis and DNA and sequencing. What they found was remarkable. When you consume alcohol, your body produces a chemical called acetaldehyde (Aset-al-dehyde), which in turn damages the body on a cellular level and causes permanent changes to the DNA. These damaged cells can then become cancerous and multiply. This is probably why alcohol has been linked to seven different types of cancer in humans. Our advice is to stop alcohol intake altogether, because leading a long and healthy life is too important to miss out on.
