Know the Limitations of the New Health Technologies

May 25, 2017

Fitness Trackers: Good at Measuring Heart Rate, Not So Good At measuring Calories “Sleek, high-tech wristbands are extremely popular these days, promising to measure heart rate, steps taken during the day, sleep, calories burned and even stress. And, increasingly, patients are heading to the doctor armed with reams of data gathered from their devices. ‘They’re essentially asking us to digest the data and offer advice about how to avoid cardiovascular disease,’ says cardiologist Euan Ashley, associate professor of medicine at the Stanford University Medical Center and Stanford Hospital and Clinics in northern California. And, being somewhat near Silicon Valley, he… [Read More]


Weekly Health Spotlight: World Health Organization Urges a Focus on Adolescent Health

May 19, 2017

WHO Says Time to Stop Ignoring Adolescent Health  “The World Health Organization has delivered dramatic news about the causes of death for young people the world over. Governments and health agencies have made great strides in reducing deaths of young children through immunization and programs that address maternal and infant care. But adolescents have somehow fallen through the cracks. Dr. Anthony Costello, director of WHO’s Department of Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health told VOA, ‘We’re finding 1.2 million (adolescents) die each year. That’s 3,000 deaths a day. That’s 10 jumbo jets.’ What’s more, Costello says these deaths are largely… [Read More]

This week it is mental health awareness week which means thinking of and considering the mental health of both yourself and those around you. Run by the Mental Health Foundation, this year the focus is on good mental health and why many people do in the UK do not have that. A recent study… [Read More]


Drinking Sugary Beverages Can Lead to Bad Brain Health

May 03, 2017

Sugary Drinks Tied to Accelerated Brain Aging “Drinking sugary beverages is associated with markers of accelerated aging and early signs of Alzheimer’s disease, a new study reports. Researchers used data on more than 4,000 people over 30, examining their brains with M.R.I. and measuring memory with psychological tests. All completed well-validated food frequency questionnaires. Sugary beverage intake is an indirect measure of how much sugar we get in our diets, which is difficult to measure precisely. The authors defined “sugary beverage” to include sodas as well as fruit juices, which may contain added sugars…”


Weekly Health Spotlight: May is Mental Health Month

May 01, 2017

Mental Health Month “This year for May is Mental Health Month, MHA is talking about Risky Business. We believe it’s important to educate people about habits and behaviors that increase the risk of developing or exacerbating mental illnesses, or could be signs of mental health problems themselves. These include risk factors such as risky sex, prescription drug misuse, internet addiction, excessive spending, marijuana use, and troublesome exercise patterns. We hope the tools and resources that we’ve put together help individuals and communities to raise awareness of the risks that these types of behaviors present—especially to young people—and help people who may be struggling to detect… [Read More]
