Cancer: These 4 genes help predict outcome

Extensive research into the role of the tumor suppressor p53 offers a greater understanding of the genetic mutations that are at play in various forms of cancer, as well as identifying four genes that may help predict a person's outlook. The overexpression of four genes can help predict the outcome of cancers that have a p53 mutation, new research finds. The TP53 gene is responsible for encoding what scientists call tumor protein p53 — a tumor suppressor that can stop cells from dividing and proliferating too fast. Researchers have dubbed TP53 the "guardian of the genome" because of its crucial...

Is it safe to consume high-proteins snacks before bed?

Washington: Researchers found that protein consumption before bed compared to protein consumption during the day does not disturb overnight belly fat metabolism or whole-body fat burn. The findings, published in the journal of "Nutrition", challenged widespread misconceptions about the relationship between nighttime eating, weight gain, and metabolism, especially in women. "For far too long, people have been led to believe that eating before bed causes metabolic disturbances and will make them gain fat," said study author Michael Ormsbee, an associate professor in the College of Human Sciences and the associate director of the FSU Institute of Sports Sciences & Medicine....

Regular cannabis use reduces attention span, creativity

Washington: Regular users of cannabis are not good at creative thinking and are often less aware of their own mistakes, claims research on the effects of cannabis. Psychologist Mikael Kowal conducted experiments on 40 regular users of cannabis. The control group of 20 non-users was given a placebo. He studied the direct and chronic effects of cannabis on dopamine-related functions, such as creative thinking and the ability to recognise one's own mistakes. The brain chemical dopamine is important for the proper working of the brain and also plays a role in learning performance. Kowal's research showed that cannabis users were...

Reduce risk of heart disease with healthy diet

Washington: Everyone knows that achieving or maintaining healthy body weight is one key to preventing cardiovascular disease. However, researchers don't agree that the best way to achieve that goal is by eliminating certain nutrients from the diet. In the study published in the journal, 'International Journal of Cardiology,' researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) examined the effects of three healthy diets emphasising different macronutrients - carbohydrates, proteins, or unsaturated fats - on a biomarker that directly reflects heart injury. Using highly specific tests, the team found that all three diets reduced heart cell damage and inflammation, consistent with...

Ketogenic diet beneficial for infants with genetic epilepsy

Washington: Infants and young children with genetic epilepsy had a better response to treatment with the ketogenic diet compared to patients with other types of epilepsy, finds a study. The study was published in the journal 'Scientific Reports.' "Overall, we observed that ketogenic diet continues to be a safe, effective and well-tolerated treatment for patients under 3 years of age with drug-resistant epilepsy," said John Millichap, the study's author. "Based on our experience, clinicians could consider offering ketogenic diet earlier to infants diagnosed with genetic epilepsy, perhaps even before it becomes clear that the patient is not responding to anticonvulsant...

Juul CEO tells CBS News: "I don't want my kids using the product"

A mother from Missouri has filed a new lawsuit against Juul, accusing the number one e-cigarette company of marketing to teenagers and getting her 14-year-old daughter hooked on nicotine. Juul is fighting a similar lawsuit brought by the state of North Carolina.In an exclusive interview with "CBS This Morning's" Tony Dokoupil, Juul CEO Kevin Burns said the company never intended for Juul to be used by kids."As a parent of a 16-year-old, 19-year-old, I don't want my kids using the product. It's not intended for them. They're not smokers or former smokers trying to use the product. We never want...

US agency: Hospital forced nurse to participate in abortion

A federal civil rights agency says Vermont's largest hospital required a nurse to participate in an abortion over her moral objections. The Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced Wednesday that the University of Vermont Medical Center could lose some federal funding if the two parties cannot agree within 30 days on the hospital's policies on employee participation in abortions. The Burlington hospital says in a statement that its policies strike the balance between supporting employees' religious, ethical and cultural beliefs, and ensuring "patients are not denied access to safe and legal abortion."...
