Indian gut similar to Bangladeshis, omnivorous animals, claims study

Any disruption of the gut leads to gastro intestinal diseases. While the role of gut microbes has been the focus of research, scientists at the National Centre for Cell Science (NCCS) have succeeded in revealing the unique features of the gut microbiota of Indians. “Our findings are specially significant and urge the government to set up a national initiative along the lines of the United States. On Wednesday, the US announced the launch of the National Microbiome Initiative (NMI)-an ambitious plan to better understand the microbes that live in humans, animals, crops, soils and oceans,” says Dr Yogesh Shouche, senior...

Maine legislators OK assisted suicide; bill goes to governor

The Maine Legislature voted Tuesday to legalize assisted suicide, passing a bill that would allow doctors to prescribe terminally ill people a fatal dose of medication. The bill now goes to Democratic Gov. Janet Mills, who has not indicated whether she will let it become law. Her office said she has not yet taken a position. If Mills signs it, Maine would join seven other states, including New Jersey this year, with similar laws, according to The Death With Dignity National Center and the Death With Dignity Political Fund. The bill would allow doctors to prescribe terminally ill people a...

Cardiovascular disease: 7 simple steps that lower future risk

Maintaining good cardiovascular health — as the American Heart Association define it — over an extended period helps lower the risk of cardiovascular disease in the future. New research gives important clues on how to protect heart health. This is the main takeaway of a study which now appears in the journal JAMA Network Open. Using the best evidence available, the American Heart Association (AHA) developed the so-called Life's Simple 7 — a collection of factors that can help predict and protect a person's heart health. "Life's Simple 7" consists of four "modifiable behaviors" — that is, things you can...

Could perking up gut bacteria promote healthy aging?

Targeting the gut microbiome — the communities of bacteria and other microorganisms that inhabit the gastrointestinal tract — could be a way to treat a range of age-related conditions. Scientists made this conclusion after investigating the effect of transplanting fecal samples from young to aged mice.Jump-starting the gut bacteria may help people age more healthily. People's gut immune response becomes less effective with age. Studies have linked this decline to age-related changes in the gut microbiome. Inflammation, increased frailty, and a predisposition to intestinal illnesses also accompany these changes. However, researchers at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, United Kingdom, found...

Quality of sleep matters, not quantity

Washington: Researchers at the University of British Columbia have claimed that quality of sleep, and not quantity, is related to better health in teens. The study published in the journal Preventive Medicine, looked at 3,104 students in British Columbia aged 13 to 17 over a period of two years. "Chronic, low-quality sleep was associated with poorer health outcomes among young British Columbia students," said study author Annalijn Conklin. "Kids who regularly had trouble falling or staying asleep were almost two and half times as likely to report sub-optimal or less than excellent health, compared to those who did not," Conklin...

Instead of a graduation bash, this high school senior threw a pizza party for the homeless

(CNN)Leanne Carrasco ordered 95 pizzas. The high school senior and her friends filled up goody bags and awaited a celebratory crowd. But this was not your typical graduation party. Carrasco didn't want that. Instead, she gave back with a pizza party at a homeless shelter for women and children in Houston, Texas. "Not a lot of people have the same options as me. It's not fair," she told CNN. "There are a lot of people who need help. So I give it." It took her a month to prepareCarrasco had volunteered before, with her family, at the Star of Hope...
