Apple lovers beware: It carries 100 million bacteria

Washington: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Are you sure? According to a recent study, an apple carries about 100 million bacteria. Besides extra fibre, flavonoids and flavour, you're also quaffing 10 times as many bacteria per fruit as your core-discarding counterparts, findings suggest. If this is good or bad for health depends on how they are grown. Published in Frontiers in Microbiology, a new study shows that organic apples harbour a more diverse and balanced bacterial community - which could make them healthier and tastier than conventional apples, as well as better for the environment. "The bacteria,...

Administering antibiotics before liver transplant proves beneficial

Washington: A recent study has found that administering antibiotics to mice for 10 days prior to a liver transplant leads to better liver function after surgery, and the same holds true for human beings too. After concluding the experiment in mice, scientists studied data from liver transplants performed between October 2013 and August 2015 revealing that the same phenomenon appears to hold true in humans. The statistics from human patients even demonstrated that the people who were in worse health prior to their surgeries but received pre-surgery antibiotics fared better after their transplants than the patients who were healthier prior...

Study: Home-delivered meals could save money for Medicare

Medicare could save $1.57 for every dollar spent delivering free healthy meals to frail seniors after a hospitalization, according to a new study that comes as lawmakers look to restrain costs by promoting patients' well-being. The report Thursday from the Bipartisan Policy Center addresses ways that Medicare can do a better job coordinating care for chronically ill patients, who account for most of the program's $650 billion annual cost. There's a growing recognition that practical services like meal delivery can make a difference helping older people avoid health flare-ups that can send them to the hospital . "If you were...
