Study: HPV Shot Even Helps Women Who Didn't Get It

By Amy Norton HealthDay Reporter TUESDAY, Jan. 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- The vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV) is highly effective in young women -- and may even offer some protection to those who don't get it, a new study suggests. Researchers said the findings add to evidence that the vaccine -- which ultimately cuts the risk of several cancers -- is a boon to public health. HPV is a sexually transmitted infection that can cause genital warts. In some people, HPV infection becomes persistent, and that can eventually leads to cervical cancer, or tumors of the vagina, penis, anus...

Congo student with Ebola still finds a way to take exams

Claude Mabowa Sasi had lost his mother, a brother and a sister to Ebola. Instead of fearing death when he, too, was diagnosed with the disease, the young man had a different worry: How would he complete his college entrance exams? It had been his mother's greatest hope that Mabowa would go to college. To do so would require passing the secondary school baccalaureate, or "bac." But the exams are held only once a year in Congo, and the 21-year-old Mabowa was being held in medical isolation, unable to sit in the same room with other test-takers. So the medical...

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...

Improve sexual desire and orgasm quality with nuts

Washington: Consuming as little as 60 grams nuts a day can improve sexual functions, suggests a study. The study was published in the journal 'Nutrients'. Researchers conducted the first nutritional intervention study with healthy participants of reproductive age in order to determine if regular consumption of nuts has any effect on sexual functions and on the quality of semen. The prevalence of erectile and sexual dysfunction is thought to affect 2 per cent of men under the age of 40 years, around 52 per cent of men aged 40 to 70 years and more than 85 per cent of men...

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...
