Following a meeting of the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee (EC), the World Health Organization announced on June 25 that the multi-country monkeypox outbreak is not a public health emergency of international concern. The WHO’s decision to weigh the severity of the outbreak drew criticism from African scientists who’ve said the virus had been a threat for years. Monkeypox, which is...
Researchers have investigated the effects of coffee intake on acute kidney injury risk. They found that drinking any amount of coffee reduces the risk of acute kidney injury but that 2-3 cups per day is most beneficial. They say that further research is needed to understand why this link may exist. Coffee contains many beneficial compounds for health, including caffeine, diterpenes, and chlorogenic acid. Studies...
The LGBTQ+ community is rising these days. Many individuals have come up and declared their support or have gotten out of the closet as they say. But even though they are already accepted in most of our communities, many people still can't accept them. Like in most national or State surveys, sexual orientation and gender identity questions are not asked making it difficult to estimate the number of LGBTQ+ individuals in our area and their...
New research has identified a link between vascular complexity in the eye’s retina and the risk of having a myocardial infarction, or in other words, a heart attack. The discovery was made by using artificial intelligence and “deep learning” to process data representing a large group of individuals. Combined with new genetic insights, the researchers can accurately predict heart attacks when the model includes...
Researchers investigated the link between long-term exposure to nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and the need for ICU care and mechanical ventilation for COVID-19. They found that exposure to higher levels of NO2 correlates to a higher need for ICU care and mechanical ventilation. The researchers caution that their study only found a correlation- not a causation- and that further research is needed to understand their findings better....
Little Fletcher Pack woke up Monday morning and asked: “Is today vaccine day?” For the 3-year-old from Lexington, South Carolina, the answer was yes. The nation’s infants, toddlers and preschoolers are finally getting their chance at COVID-19 vaccination as the U.S. rolls out shots for tots this week. Shipments arrived in some locations over the weekend and some spots, including a Walgreens in South Carolina and...
The omicron wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in late 2021 and early 2022 spread like a grass fire in America's densely populated cities but led to higher rates of death in rural counties where vaccinations are lagging. The latest study by the University of Cincinnati, published in the journal  Frontiers in Medicine,  revealed striking disparities in health care between urban and rural America. "This new national study, looking...
Anxiety disorders are among the most common mental health conditions worldwide. While they tend to affect women more than men, men are still widely affected. Due to differing social and biological factors, men’s experiences of anxiety, from coping styles to treatment-seeking behaviors, differ from those of women. Anxiety disorders are  characterized  by excessive fear and worry, and behavioral disturbances. They ...
The Covid19 pandemic has definitely hit all of us. It changed our lives in an instant. A lot of lives were lost worldwide and it gave a lot of challenges to our public health, food systems and work. It didn't only affect our lives, but it also affected our economy. Lots of people loose their jobs because of the closure of companies due to health protocols. And a lot are now at risk of falling into extreme poverty, and those undernourished...
WEDNESDAY, June 8, 2022 (HealthDay News) -- The mental health equivalent of 911 is about to launch across the United States, but a new study finds that many communities may not be prepared for it. Beginning July 16, a new 988 number will be available 24/7 for Americans dealing with a  mental health crisis . It's akin to 911, long used to get help for medical emergencies. The new code will replace the 10-digit...
In 2008, when I left my medical studies in China during the rise of workplace violence (WPV) directed toward doctors and relocated to finish my training in the U.S., my parents were unhappy with the thought of me -- their only child -- being on the other side of the world. But they took comfort in saying, "At least you will be safer there as a practicing physician one day." They assumed I'd be safer as a doctor in the U.S. However, after...
Like many areas of healthcare, the challenges of the past two years have accelerated tech innovation within dermatology – leading to increasing digital collaboration with patients and research into new models of care for skin disease. Dermatologists rapidly adapted their approach to support patients during the pandemic, and technology that was adopted out of necessity, is now leaving a lasting mark on the future of dermatology....
