Brain power — Reducing the risk of Alzheimer's disease

Memory is as critical to human survival as food, water and oxygen. Not only are memories treasure troves of our passions and experiences, they're reminders of the most basic functions in everyday life. Without them, simple tasks like buttoning a blouse or remembering a pot of boiling water on the stove could become unmanageable or even dangerous. That's what makes Alzheimer's disease such a cruel illness. It robs its victims of both the small and grand moments in life, leaving loved ones and caregivers to fill in the blanks. It is also among the most expensive illnesses to treat.

Nutritional intelligence

How much do you know about supplements? Questions like, "which ones," "how many," and "how often" usually top the list. If you find yourself confused, overwhelmed — or even under informed — don’t worry. You're not alone. There's a lot to consider when it comes to choosing, purchasing and using the right supplement to add to your diet.

Modern benefits of an ancient healing art

Although used for thousands of years in the ancient world, acupuncture’s entrance into our modern medical system is a relatively recent phenomenon. Clearly acupuncture is not just for pain anymore. Anxiety, depression, insomnia and gastrointestinal disorders are some of the many reason patients seek acupuncture. In recent years the acupuncture "face lift" has become popular in some spas to tighten the skin around the eyes and lips without injections. Acupuncture popularity has increased to such an extent that over the last 30 year some 6,500 U.S. physicians have been trained in the art of medical acupuncture.

A new way of looking at — and treating — cancer

Townsend Letter
In 1971, when President Richard M. Nixon initiated the war on cancer, the average person had a 1 in 10 risk of developing cancer in his or her lifetime. Today, that's changed — for the worse. The risk is now 1 in 2 for men and 1 in 3 for women. Maybe it's premature to say that we've lost the war but we certainly aren't winning it, either. There is good news, too, though.

Tracking marine pollution

Science
Visit a beach almost anywhere and you will see plastic waste floating in the water and heaped above the tide lines. That debris is both a source and an overt signal of the even more pervasive contamination of marine biota by persistent chemicals. Present at ultra-trace levels but often highly toxic, chemical pollutants can be challenging to measure and understand. As the most problematic compounds biomagnify in food chains, sampling of marine top predators yields a global picture of ocean pollution.

Healing with language: Congruence
SCS Matters
Unless you are reading, language is not a "stand-alone" form of communication. It occurs in a context that includes nonverbal components. The most frequently cited study — Mehrabian and Ferris' 1967 article in the Journal of Consulting Psychology — concluded that meaning was determined primarily by nonverbal components.

Uncertain Inheritance: Transgenerational effects of environmental exposures
Environmental Health Perspective
Andrea Cupp made a serendipitous discovery when she was a postdoctoral fellow at Washington State University: While investigating how chemicals affect sex determination in embryonic animals, she bred the offspring of pregnant rats that had been dosed with an insecticide called methoxyclor. When the males from that litter grew into adults, they had decreased sperm counts and higher rates of infertility. Cupp had seen these same abnormalities in the animals' fathers, which had been exposed to methoxyclor in the womb. But this latest generation hadn't been exposed that way, which suggested that methoxyclor's toxic effects had carried over generations.

Sports specialization, hours spent in organized sports may predict young athlete injury
Medical Xpress
Athletes ages 8 to 18 who spend twice as many hours per week in organized sports than in free play, and especially in a single sport, are more likely to be injured, according to an abstract presented Monday, Oct. 28 at the American Academy of Pediatrics National Conference and Exhibition in Orlando. The study, "Risks of Specialized Training and Growth for Injury in Young Athletes: A Prospective Cohort Study," found athletes who played more hours per week than their age — for example, an 8-year-old who played more than eight hours per week — were more likely to be injured.
