Is your child feeling bogged down by academic pressure or social anxiety? Yoga at school will help

Yoga and mindfulness activities at school can help improve emotional health of children with anxiety, according to a study. Researchers at Tulane University worked with a public school in New Orleans to add mindfulness and yoga to the school’s existing empathy-based programming for students needing supplementary support. Third graders, who were screened for symptoms of anxiety at the beginning of the school year, were randomly assigned to two groups. A control group of 32 students received care as usual, which included counseling and other activities led by a school social…

Young women who have hypertension are at an increased risk of heart failure post delivery

Young women who have hypertension are at an increased risk of heart failure post delivery

Young women suffering from hypertension are at an increased risk of heart failure within the six weeks after delivery, also known as the postpartum period, according to a study. Heart failure is a leading cause of maternal morbidity and death, affecting relatively young reproductive-age women, especially among those with the presence of an additional disease or condition, such as hypertension. The study found that although less than 2% of all pregnancy-related hospitalisations occurred during the postpartum period, nearly 60% of pregnancy-related heart failure hospitalisations took place during the same time….

Beware, these are the types of cancer where patients are at higher risk of committing suicide

Patients with prostate, bladder or kidney cancers are five times more likely to commit suicide, a survey led by an Indian-origin scientist has found. The analysis also showed that cancer patients are about three times more likely to commit suicide than the general population. The proportion of attempted suicides which result in a completed or successful suicide was higher in cancer patients, with a higher proportion still in patients with urological cancers. Severe psychological stress is one of the main side-effects of both a diagnosis of cancer and the treatment,…

Acne may put you at risk of major depression. Here’s what new research says

Acne may put you at risk of major depression. Here’s what new research says

Acne is associated with increased risk of developing major depression in the first years after the condition appears, reveals a study. The analysis included data from The Health Improvement Network (THIN) (1986-2012), a large primary care database in the United Kingdom. The investigators found that the risk for major depression was highest within one year of acne diagnosis – a 63% higher risk compared with individuals without acne – and decreased thereafter. The results indicate that it is critical that physicians monitor mood symptoms in patients with acne and initiate…

Ladies, do you have normal BMI and higher body fat levels? You are at risk of breast cancer

Ladies, do you have normal BMI and higher body fat levels? You are at risk of breast cancer

Postmenopausal women with normal body mass index (BMI), but with higher body fat levels are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer, a study warns. Body fat levels are typically measured via BMI, which is a ratio of weight to height. While BMI may be a convenient method to estimate body fat, it is not an exact way to determine whole body fat levels, as muscle mass and bone density cannot be distinguished from fat mass. The study included participants who had a normal BMI (between 18.5 to 25.0) and…

Love adding extra salt to your food? You may be putting yourself at risk of dementia

Love adding extra salt to your food? You may be putting yourself at risk of dementia

Love to eat crispy roasted nuts and potato wafers that are high in salt? Beware, besides harming your heart, it may also harm your brain and lead to dementia, researchers have warned. In mice, the high-salt diet reduced the resting cerebral blood flow by 28% in the cortex and 25% in the hippocampus – brain regions involved in learning and memory. This impairment in the blood flow to the brain was caused by a decrease in the production of nitric oxide – a gas generated by endothelial cells – the…

Are you at risk? Absence of this gene can give men a deadly cancer

Are you at risk? Absence of this gene can give men a deadly cancer

A study has recently revealed that men who lack a certain gene subtype may be more susceptible to treatment-resistant prostate cancer. Researchers from Cleveland Clinic confirmed for the first time a mechanistic link between the gene HSD17B4 and deadly, aggressive prostate cancer. The team built upon their earlier seminal work in which they discovered that a gene called HSD3B1, when altered, enables prostate tumors to evade treatment and proliferate. They went on to show that the presence of this gene variant does in fact change treatment outcomes and overall survival…
