A new qualitative study from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health identifies several key lessons from early efforts to establish sanctioned safe consumption sites in five U.S. communities. The results offer insights on one approach some localities are exploring to address the escalating drug overdose crisis in the U.S. Through interviews with key […]Continue Reading ...
While the heavy negative effects of high consumption are confirmed, those who drink in moderation resort less to the hospital than teetotalers A study of the Department of Epidemiology and Prevention of I.R.C.C.S. Neuromed (Pozzilli, Italy), in collaboration with the Department of Nutrition of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (Boston), highlights that […]Continue Reading ...
Several studies have shown red meat to be harmful in the long run when consumed regularly. Researchers have proposed that a meat tax could deter people from excessive red meat consumption due to raised prices and this could prevent around 6,000 deaths annually in UK. Researchers at the University of Oxford have suggested the government […]Continue Reading ...
The detection has been carried out analyzing the saliva of healthy volunteers before and after they smoked these herbs along with tobacco. The samples were analyzed using high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS), statistical and bioinformatics methods. Researchers at the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) have developed a system to detect molecules related to the consumption of synthetic […]Continue Reading ...
July 11, 2018 A recent randomized controlled trial, published in the Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics, provides insights on the promising outcomes of short-term improvements in blood vessel function among healthy males who consumed dietary achievable amounts of red raspberries. The subjects – ten healthy males aged 18 to 35 – consumed drinks prepared with […]Continue Reading ...
July 5, 2018 A new Respirology review and analysis of published studies reveals a link between fast food consumption and an increased likelihood of having asthma, wheeze, and several other allergic diseases such as pollen fever, eczema, and rhino-conjunctivitis. The analysis included 16 studies. In terms of different types of fast food consumption, hamburger intake […]Continue Reading ...
April 20, 2018 A new study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine has determined that poorer childhood cognition occurred, particularly in memory and learning, when pregnant women or their offspring consumed greater quantities of sugar. Substituting diet soda for sugar-sweetened versions during pregnancy also appeared to have negative effects. However, children’s fruit consumption […]Continue Reading ...
