Claim: 30,000 Lives Could Be Saved By Making The World's Cleanest Air Even Cleaner - But The Data Don't Show It
Data didn't show it, but it doesn't matter and that is the great thing about modern epidemiology. In this decade, epidemiologists only need to show a statistical correlation and then they get media coverage and hand it off to scientists and tell them to show it. It's sort of like theoretical physicists claiming they can show time travel or a multiverse and the incompetent noobs in experimental physics need to drop everything and prove them right.
Despite believing that self-care is a vitally important part of health and overall well-being, many physicians overlook their own self-care, according to a new survey released today, conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of Samueli Integrative Health Programs. Lack of time, job demands, family demands, being too tired and burnout are the most common reasons for not practicing their desired amount of self-care.
The process is simple enough for simpler creatures; insects are attracted to some smells and repelled by others. So use the repellent on plants you want to keep.
Like garlic on broccoli.
This is why while I was a successful environmental fundraiser, many of their positions made no sense to me, even when I was young and naïve. Many of the positions I was supposed to believe in weren't about the environment, they were about manufacturing hype to raise money. Hawaiʻi's Thirty Meter Telescope is another example where it is not about the environment - 13 observatories and telescopes have been there for over 40 years - and it is also not about the next tactic after the environmental argument failed - religion.
A recent analysis of survey results found that 34 percent of new LSD initiates first used the drug in the summer. In addition, 30 percent of marijuana, 30 percent of ecstasy (MDMA/Molly), and 28 percent of cocaine use was found to begin in summer months. Since summer is 25 percent of the seasons this is not really compelling insight, but if epidemiologists want to get National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) funding, they need to find things to hype up.
We've known for some time that the islet is sensitive to a glucose demand in secreting insulin and uses gap junctions as a tuning parameter in this adaptation. Thus restoring natural cellular function through the use of microcurrents or electrical connectivity holds much promise for the future of diabetes treatment and pancreatic islet cell repair.
Of course, the process of going from subatomic collisions to submitted papers is a long and complex one. The first part of the journey involves triggering, storage, and reconstruction of the acquired datasets, , and reduction of the data into an analysis-friendly format. While this is might sound like a partly automatic and painless procedure, it involves the expense of liters of sweat by conscentious collaborators who oversee the data acquisition and its processing.
Orthostatic hypotension is the technical term for a temporary drop in blood pressure when a person stands up after sitting or lying down because blood rushes to the feet, away from the brain. Dizziness or fainting due to changes in blood flow can occur after lengthy bed rest, among people with certain health disorders or, in the case of astronauts, being in a low-gravity environment.
Why? In the case of lung cancer, it may be because over half of lung cancers are caused by smoking and even more are statistically linked to smokers (second-hand smoke) but it still carries a stigma. Liver cancer may be associated with alcoholics. Both of those are lifestyle diseases and not genetic bad luck.
