    A Silicon Valley company has designed a technique to decipher the genetic code of a tiny embryo and calculate its future risk of cancer, diabetes and 10 other common diseases – presaging a day when parents could select children with a greater chance of living a healthier life. “Some parents are really worried about a specific disease in their family,” said pediatric medical geneticist Dr. Akash Kumar, co-founder of MyOme, a Menlo Park-based genome sequencing company. “Our hope is that by providing information relevant to the diseases that they care about, they can feel like they’re more empowered.” For now, this powerful and potentially life-tinkering advance is still in the research phase and only applies to embryos conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF), not ones naturally conceived. But if it becomes commercially available, it could relieve the burden on families and health systems, by reducing the number of people born at risk of those illnesses. Kumar’s team reported its findings in the March 21 issue of the journal Nature Medicine. Still, bioethicists and fertility experts warn, there is not yet...
    BANGKOK (AP) — A report by the World Wildlife Fund shows illegal purchases of wildlife online are growing in Myanmar in a threat both to public health and to endangered species. The report issued Friday found that enforcement of bans on such transactions has weakened amid political turmoil following a 2021 military takeover. The number of such dealings rose 74% over a year earlier to 11,046, nearly all of them involving sales of live animals. For the 173 species traded, 54 are threatened with global extinction, the report said. Researchers identified 639 Facebook accounts belonging to wildlife traders. The largest online trading group had more than 19,000 members and dozens of posts per week, it said. The animals and animal parts bought and sold involved elephants, bears and gibbons, Tibetan antelope, critically endangered pangolins and an Asian giant tortoise. The most popular mammals were various species of langurs and monkeys, often bought as pets. Most of the animals advertised for sale were taken from the wild. They also included civets, which along with pangolins have...
    A research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) said Thursday that parents should do everything they can to avoid giving their children the coronavirus vaccine, insisting that the potential harm far outweighs the benefits. I think it is “outrageous to be giving vaccines to young people because they have a very, very low risk of dying from COVID,” Dr. Stephanie Seneff said in an on-air interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News Thursday evening. Seneff, a senior research scientist with MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, said the possible benefits for children from the coronavirus vaccine are minimal and “when you look at the potential harm from these vaccines, it just doesn’t make any sense.” Especially with repeated boosters such treatment “will be devastating in the long term,” she added. Parents should not be pressured into having their children vaccinated, Seneff said, and rather “should do everything they can to avoid it, absolutely everything they can.” In a 2021 article coauthored with Dr. Greg Nigh, a naturopathic oncologist, and published in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Vaccine...
    The type of mosquito that transmits viruses such as Zika and dengue could be prevented from doing so by eating sugar before feasting on blood, a new study suggests. The research, led by the MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research, showed that the Aedes aegypti species or yellow fever mosquito, had enhanced immunity in their guts after they fed on sugar. This protected females of the species against getting infected. Adult mosquitoes feed on plant nectar and sap to build up their energy, but they require blood to reproduce. Due to this, they transmit viruses, including the chikungunya virus, which is a public problem for the entire world.  Scroll down for video   The mosquito that transmits Zika and dengue could be prevented from doing so by eating sugar before feasting on blood It's unclear why the sugar protects the mosquitoes from getting infected, but the researchers believe it may be partly responsible 'for the high susceptibility and transmission of arboviruses by this mosquito species.'  One of the study's co-authors, Dr Emilie Pondeville, Molecular Entomologist at the MRC-University, said...

This is suggested by a new study that supports its benefits for heart health, vitamin K belongs to the category of fat-soluble vitamins, it is easily absorbed by the body and is related to important functions. Vitamin K is one of the most essential for heart health. The study was published in JAHA (Journal of...
    “Immunosuppressed patients, or those who suffer from some chronic pathologies, may see their response capacity altered as a result of the disease itself or because some of their treatments affect precisely the reaction of the immune system,” explains Juan Rodríguez, a doctor specializing in preventive medicine at the Son Espases University Hospital, in Palma de Mallorca. For his part, Ángel Gil, professor of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at the Rey Juan Carlos University, in Madrid, points out that, although the immunosuppressed are high-risk groups for any infectious disease, not all of them present the same vulnerability, “not all They have such a compromised immune system. ” Vaccination prevents diseases that can be fatal or leave sequelae and reduce the quality of life of people who suffer from them. And this is especially important in immunosuppressed individuals due to certain pathologies or treatments, since their condition may imply poor control of the infection, that they recover worse or even worsen their underlying disease. First, this type of patient must be properly immunized against respiratory pathogens, such as pneumococcusSince, according to...
    As a student at Princeton University, I felt the weight of the pandemic affecting my life. After losing nearly a year and a half of college experiences and missing out on countless academic, professional and extracurricular opportunities, students and young professionals are mourning the losses of the pandemic. One thing we are left with is a greater understanding of the importance of global health protection, such that we feel a collective sense of responsibility to prevent the next global health crisis from harming us and future generations. With the rise of social media, my generation has grown up with the power of technology and influence. But now, more than ever — spurred by this greater sense of awareness of our future — we are using our platforms to express our need for real change in the wake of the pandemic. As the most technologically equipped generation to ever live, young people constantly consume content, furthering our understandings of things such as climate change, BLM, Me-Too and, now, pandemic prevention. Even though the origin of COVID-19 is unknown, the threat of...
    The world's first high-resolution 3D image of a monkey brain has been revealed, in a breakthrough that could pave the way for treatments for human diseases including Parkinson's. A detailed map of a complete macaque monkey brain was created using fluorescent imaging techniques by a team from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. The team used a new technique to show how nerve cells are organised and connected within the monkey brain at a 'micron resolution'.  The human brain comprises nearly a hundred billion nerve cells with delicate and complex connections, and while up to 17 times larger than that of a macaque, it is similar enough for comparisons to be made between the two, researchers claim. Until now, a mouse brain was the largest to be mapped, taking days to create a complete 3D image, but the new technique made it possible to move up to a macaque brain, which is about 200 times larger in volume than that of a mouse. The team, including researchers from Zhejiang University, say that having such a detailed map of a...
    Euan Ashley (pictured) and his team at the University of Stanford believe they can develop a vaccine that can severely reduce heart disease, kidney disease and Alzheimer's deaths - among other conditions A 'superhero' vaccine that could protect against a multitude of diseases could come into existence within the next decade. Dr Euan Ashley, a professor at Stanford University and genetic scientist, and his team are working on the vaccine, and believes it could realistically be available in the not-so-far future. Ashley says his vaccine would use genetic information from people with desirable traits - such as Olympic athletes -  as a blueprint to repair DNA cells in a way that will strengthen the average persons genes. It could potentially protect people from conditions that are the leading causes of death such as heart disease, Alzheimer's and liver disease.  Ashley believes the vaccine could begin trials as early as 2026, and be available for use in 10 to 15 years.  'Potentially millions of people could be impacted by this technology - a superhero jab, for want of a better...
    There are likely some 1.7 million undiscovered viruses in nature, half of which could spill over to infect humans and trigger new pandemics, UN scientists have warned. In their report, a team of 22 experts said that unless steps are taken, pandemics will emerge more often, spread faster, kill more people and do more economic damage. A 'transformative change' in the way we deal with infectious diseases — shifting to a preventative stance — will be needed to escape an 'Era of Pandemics', they said. COVID-19 is at least the sixth pandemic to strike since the outbreak of the 'Spanish flu' in 1918, which infected a third of the world's population and killed 20–50 million. The expert panel was convened by the UN's Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, or IPBES.

    (CNN)Not exercising enough could increase your risk of developing certain diseases by up to 8%, according to a new study. Little to no exercise increases your risk of getting noncommunicable diseases such as depression and dementia, according to the study's analysis of data from 168 countries. The study published Monday in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. My BMI qualified me for the coronavirus vaccine. Why did I hesitate to schedule an appointment? Physical inactivity is defined as not "doing at least 150min of moderate-intensity, or 75min of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week or any equivalent combination of the two," according to the report. If you don't get enough exercise, your chance of getting hypertension could increase by 1.6% and dementia could increase by 8.1%, the researchers found.The study also took note of the income levels of each county (rated as low, middle or high) and found that as the income increases, so does physical inactivity.Read MoreThis could be attributed to the increase in amenities people have access to, said study author Peter Katzmarzyk, professor and associate executive director for...

    Dog licking its owner. (Photo: PhotoAlto / Katarina Sundelin) If your dog licks your face, it means that he loves you very much. That is a fact and is defended by veterinarians. But that show of love may not be too good for our health or our hygiene. “Dogs show their affection through their licks towards their fellow men and also their owners, that a dog licks your face, mouth or any wound it can be dangerous,” he says Alexis Santana, Veterinarian and Practice Manager of AniCura Albea Veterinary Hospital. Although pets do not usually transmit any especially serious diseases, they do transmit some that can be life threatening. A study published in the American Kennel Club points out that there are some “zoonotic bacteria [típicas de una especie] that can be harmful to humans ”. For example, they point out that the meat-based diet of raw meat of dogs can cause the transmission of the salmonella to the humans. This same study indicates that the mouth of dogs has a number of bacteria similar to that of humans: about...
    One of the main recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) to prevent the development of non-communicable diseases -such as obesity or hypertension- and to keep fit is walk at least 150 minutes each week with moderate intensity. In the case of wanting greater health benefits, it is advisable to increase the time to 300 minutes per week. But how does it affect our health? It is one of the healthiest practices for the daily routine, “that starts all the muscles of our body, activates our brain, It does not require prior training and is accessible to most ages “, they assure from the Official College of Pharmacists of Madrid (COFM). Prevention of heart disease, diabetes and hypertension Walk frequently can prevent the risk of developing diseases such as high blood pressure or diabetes and, in addition, it contributes to protecting cardiovascular health. It also serves to strengthen the bone and muscle system, to control weight and, above all, to reduce stress levels and improve our mood. “You start to burn fat after 20 or 25 minutes of...
    We could say that the caffeine It is the most widely consumed legal drug in the world, almost always in the form of coffee: one of the reasons for this is the effect it has on the brain that makes us feel more alert. Although a moderate dose of caffeine is not harmful, as in the consumption of anything, if we overdo it we can have health problems. Insomnia We drink coffee to wake up in the morning just to feel more alert when we wake up, or at night if we don’t want to fall asleep before finishing some work. The stimulating effect of caffeine has to do with blocking the adenosine, a neurotransmitter, which influences the states of drowsiness. Too much caffeine can disrupt our natural sleep cycles and prevent us from sleeping properly at night. Headache Another of the effects of caffeine, by blocking adenosine, is that it causes less blood to circulate in the blood vessels of the brain, which it can help relieve headaches, such as migraine headaches. However, this effect may...
