The Myth of Dry Drowning Remains at Large In Emergency Department

According to a study, researchers determine parents have been reading and sharing alarming reports of children who died or nearly died due to "dry drowning" over the past year. However, the use of that incorrect, nonmedical term has contributed to confusion about the true dangers of drowning in children and led to serious and fatal conditions being ignored after a "dry drowning" diagnosis was made. The study was published in Emergency Medicine News.

Internal Clock Controls Influences On Atherosclerosis

The internal clock controls all vital functions in the body. Body temperature as well as blood pressure or the release of certain enzymes are subject to oscillations throughout the day, the so-called circadian rhythm. For the first time, a team around Professor Oliver Söhnlein has now shown the influence of circadian rhythms on atherosclerosis, a vascular disease that ultimately can lead to heart attacks and strokes. The study was published in the scientific journal Cell Metabolism, could be crucial for the improvement of therapeutic approaches.

Compare The Prevalence Of NMSC And Related Risk Behavior In Different Outdoor

A study examine that One of the main risk factors for non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), the most common cancer worldwide, is solar ultraviolet radiation. To compare the prevalence of NMSC and associated risk behaviour in different outdoor professions. The study was published in Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology study has found that different outdoor professions carry different risks for NMSC.

Biochemists Developed Milions Of Proteins Used As Drugs

A study showed that Biochemists have develped a way to rapidly synthesize and screen millions of novel proteins that could be used as drugs against Ebola and other viruses. All proteins produced by living cells are made from the 20 amino acids that are programmed by the genetic code. The MIT team came up with a way to assemble proteins from amino acids not used in nature, including many that are mirror images of natural amino acids. The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Neuroanatomy Predicts In Individual Health Diet

According to a new study, researchers analyzes differences in the structure of the prefrontal cortex predict an individual's ability to make healthier food choices, in healthy men and women. The study was published in JNeurosci, suggests an important role of these anatomical markers in decisions that have long-term effects on health and wellbeing.

Arthritis Treatments Might Impact On Mental Health

Drugs used to treat rheumatoid arthritis may impact mental health by improving pain and stiffness and by targeting inflammatory processes common to arthritis and depression; however, a recent review of published studies demonstrates that relying on rheumatoid arthritis therapies alone may not meaningfully improve patients' mental health
