Banned supplement remains a concern in weight-loss products - Dotemirates

Banned supplement remains a concern in weight-loss products

(HealthDay)—Weight-loss and energy supplements sold in the United States may contain potentially harmful and inaccurately labeled levels of the banned stimulant higenamine, a new study finds. Higenamine is on the World Anti-Doping Agency's list of substances prohibited in sports, though it is legal for use in supplements in the United States, Canada and Europe. "We're urging competitive and amateur athletes, as well as general consumers, to think twice before consuming a product that contains higenamine," said study co-author John Travis. "Beyond the doping risk for athletes, some of these products contain extremely high doses of a stimulant with unknown safety...

Navajo cancer center will cut tribal members' travel time

Colon cancer took a heavy toll on Loren McCabe's family. His great-grandmother was diagnosed too late to fight it. His grandfather didn't want to travel for treatment because he felt better protected within the Navajo Nation's four sacred mountains. McCabe's mother died, too, after choosing treatment so she could see her son graduate from college but having to travel far to receive it. None had the option of being treated on their reservation, nor do Native Americans elsewhere in the United States, despite having higher rates for some types of cancer. A hospital on the rural Navajo Nation that serves...

Premature birth affects brain health at a later stage in life

Washington: A new study has highlighted that preterm birth can change an infants' brain activity while they are sleeping and also affects their future brain health. The study published in the journal Nature Communications analysed brain activity data collected from 94 infants from Helsinki, Finland including 42 infants who had been born extremely premature at 27 weeks and a control group of 52 infants who had been born at full term. "Quality of sleep is a vital indicator of brain health, particularly in newborn infants, and our study looked at the brain process supporting distinct sleep patterns in preterm and...

Know how your brain helps you make decisions

Washington: Ever wonder what process does your brain follow when there is a decision to be made - good or bad? Yale researchers have found that three distinct circuits connecting to different brain regions are involved in making decisions. "Specific decision-making computations are altered in individuals with mental illness," said Jane Taylor, professor of psychiatry and senior author of the study. "Our results suggest that these impairments may be linked to dysfunction within distinct neural circuits." According to the team of researchers, specific decision-making computations are altered in individuals with mental illness. "Our results suggest that these impairments may be...

Hypertension on the rise in Indian women due to air pollution

London: Exposure to higher levels of indoor air pollution in India is associated with an increased risk of hypertension among women, according to a study. Researchers led by the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) in Spain studied the association in India, where burdens of air pollution and hypertension are projected to increase. The results show that women exposed to higher levels of air pollution at home have a higher hypertension prevalence. The study, published in the journal Epidemiology, studied 5,531 adults from 28 peri-urban villages near Hyderabad city. The researchers measured systolic and diastolic blood pressure of participants and...

Extended years of childhood education reduces heart problems

Washington: Extending the years of childhood education may reduce adult heart disease risk, a recent study suggests. According to the team of researchers, people with more education may have reduced heart disease because they have higher incomes, allowing them to afford better food and health care. The findings suggest that state policies requiring children to attend additional years of school may result in a reduced risk for heart disease and improvements in several cardiovascular risk factors in adulthood. As part of the study, the researchers conducted a natural experiment by evaluating state compulsory schooling laws, which legislate the number of...
