Is a low carb diet dangerous?

Pasta. Sourdough. Mashed potatoes. If you are one of the legions of dieters out there who have been religiously cutting carbs in an attempt to get lean and fit, you may be surprised by a recent study that showed that low carb diets may not be healthy after all. In fact, they may be unsafe. Research presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress in Germany found that diets very low in carbohydrates may actually increase the of over time. Yikes. The author of the study, Professor Maciej Banach, of the Medical University of Lodz, Poland, said: "We found that...

North Carolina chickenpox outbreak blamed on vaccination exemptions

(CNN)A chickenpox outbreak among students at Asheville Waldorf School in North Carolina has grown to 36 cases as of Monday, and exemptions from vaccination were a contributing factor, according to the Buncombe County Health Department, which has been monitoring the situation since the end of October.Asheville Waldorf School, which serves students from nursery through sixth grade, is part of an educational movement that subscribes to a philosophy focused on physical activity and learning through hands-on tasks, according to its website. There are more than 900 Waldorf schools in 83 countries, and the Asheville school, which was founded in 2009, is...

Menopause symptoms may be worse for women suffering emotional and physical abuse

Women facing emotional and physical abuse in relationships has been a major cause for concern. Apart from the trauma they suffer for years to come, such treatment can also have a serious impact on their health. Research has found that menopause symptoms may be worse for women who go through emotional and physical abuse. Chances of sleeplessness, vaginal issues and hypertension went up by 60 per cent for women in such cases. Physical abuse increased chances of women suffering from night sweat by 50 per cent. This comes after another study showed how sexual assault and violence doubled the risk...

White matter pathway and individual variability in human stereoacuity

Researchers in the Center for Information and Neural Networks (CiNet), the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology and Osaka University have identified a human white matter pathway associated with individual variability in human stereoacuity. By combining neuroimaging and psychophysical measurements, we found that the neural tissue density of the white matter pathway, the vertical occipital fasciculus (VOF), correlated with the individual variability in stereoacuity. The VOF connects the dorsal and ventral visual areas involved in stereopsis. This finding is important to understand the neural basis of dysfunction in stereopsis. Three-dimensional sight, stereopsis, is an important visual function. A series...

Researchers hope to be able to replace dysfunctional brain cells

A new study by researchers at Karolinska Institutet supports the theory that replacement of dysfunctional immune cells in the brain has therapeutic potential for neurodegenerative diseases like ALS and Alzheimer's disease. The study, which involved repopulating the brain with new immune cells in an experimental disease model, is published in Nature Communications. Macrophages are present throughout the body, and are specialised according to the organ in which they operate; in the they are known as . In a healthy brain, microglia are involved in many caretaking functions that support the activities and health of nerve cells. In diseases like ALS...

To predict the future, the brain has two clocks

That moment when you step on the gas pedal a split second before the light changes, or when you tap your toes even before the first piano note of Camila Cabello's "Havana" is struck. That's anticipatory timing. One type relies on memories from past experiences. The other on rhythm. Both are critical to our ability to navigate and enjoy the world. New UC Berkeley research shows the supporting each of these timekeepers are split between two different parts of the brain, depending on the task at hand. "Whether it's sports, music, speech or even allocating attention, our study suggests that...

What does autism look like in the brain?

People on the autism spectrum often dislike exposure to unexpected stimuli, but why is that? New research takes a look at what happens in the brain, and how that relates to a person's ability to tolerate exposure to various stimuli. What happens in the brains of people with autism? "People with autism do not like unexpected stimuli, and it may be because brains are not as efficient at rapidly shifting between ideas or thoughts," notes Dr. Jeff Anderson, a professor in Radiology at the University of Utah Health in Salt Lake City. Recently, Dr. Anderson and colleagues decided to try...
