Polio is back in Europe because people aren’t vaccinating their children

Two Ukrainian children have been paralyzed by polio, in the first recorded outbreak of the virus in Europe since 2010. One is four years old, and the other only 10 months old. Both cases were confirmed on Sept. 2 by the World Health Organization (WHO), reports Reuters.

Polio is contagious and incurable, and risk of the virus spreading further across Ukraine is high, Hamid Jafari, the head of WHO’s Polio Eradication Initiative told Quartz. In 2014, only 50% of Ukrainian children had been vaccinated against polio. Neither of the two stricken children had been vaccinated.

A metabolic master switch underlying human obesity

Researchers find pathway that controls metabolism by prompting fat cells to store or burn fat.

There may now be a new approach to prevent and even cure obesity, thanks to a study led by researchers at MIT and Harvard Medical School and published today in the New England Journal of Medicine. By analyzing the cellular circuitry underlying the strongest genetic association with obesity, the researchers have unveiled a new pathway that controls human metabolism by prompting our adipocytes, or fat cells, to store fat or burn it away.

World's best dad builds 'Star Wars' speeder bike as rocking horse

For her first birthday, he built her a rocker in the form of the speeder Princess Leia rides to evade the Scout Troopers in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi using only plywood, a 3D-printed hull and some electronics for the lights and sounds.

How old is your heart?

Your heart is probably much older than you think, the CDC warns

Nearly 800,000 Americans die of heart-related conditions each year, and their illnesses cost about $320 billion annually, according to the American Heart Assn.

So researchers from the CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention decided to estimate the heart age of Americans adults and see how those ages differed according to where they live, how much education and money they have, and their racial and ethnic backgrounds.

//Organic vs conventional

Buying organic veggies at the supermarket is a waste of money

"If you want to know more about your fruits and vegetables, buy them at the local farmers market, organic or not. The prices are often competitive with supermarkets, the in-season goods will be fresher than those shipped long distances."

The science available thus far says any additional nutritional benefits from organic produce, compared with conventional, are very small.

A 2009 meta-analysis said there was no nutrient difference in organic versus conventional. Since then, two larger meta-analyses have found slight differences, but ones that are probably too small to really matter. The 2012 study found slightly higher phosphorous levels in the organic produce, and a 2014 study found higher antioxidant levels and lower cadmium levels in organic foods.

May you rest in peace Dr. Oliver Sacks. Thank you for everything.

An in-depth interview with Oliver Sacks on his discovery that he had cancer.

"It was a Saturday, eight days before Christmas, the 17th. It seemed just an ordinary day. I got up, went for my usual swim, and decided to go to the cinema, but as soon as the previews started, I became aware of something bizarre happening — a sort of incandescent fluttering to my left, which I took to be a visual migraine. But then I became certain that it was in my eye and not in the brain, as a migraine would be. That really alarmed me."

How often is B.M.I. misleading?

Data backs up the notion that many Americans are "skinny fat" and "healthy obese" — their body fat percentage tells a different story than their B.M.I.

"There was a strong relationship between B.M.I. and body fat percentage, but for almost one in five adults, the two measurements disagreed."

Drinking water before meals leads to weight loss

A new study, published in the September issue of the journal Obesity suggests water can be an effective tool to combat excess weight, albeit modestly.

The results provide compelling evidence to encourage all those attempting to lose weight to increase their daily intake of water to help in their efforts. Specifically, one should consume approximately 2 cups of water, about half an hour prior to most meals.

Journalist Suki Kim went undercover in North Korea as a teacher at the prestigious Pyongyang University of Science and Technology in 2011 and discovered a world bound in secrecy, surveillance and lies.___

//Aspirin

The associations between the use of low-dose aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and colorectal cancer risk.

“Self-medication with aspirin or non-aspirin NSAIDs is strongly discouraged, due to the possibility of serious adverse events,” Dr. Friis said. “The public should not take any medication regularly without consulting with a physician.”

Long-term, continuous use of low-dose aspirin and long-term use of nonaspirin NSAIDs were associated with reduced colorectal cancer risk. Persons who continuously used low-dose aspirin comprised only a small proportion of the low-dose aspirin users.

Abandoned Suitcases Reveal Private Lives of Insane Asylum Patients (2012)

"Each suitcase offers a glimpse into the life of a unique individual, living in an era when those with mental disorders and disabilities were not only stigmatized but also isolated from society."

From the 1910s through the 1960s, many patients at the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane left suitcases behind when they passed away, with nobody to claim them. Upon the center’s closure in 1995, employees found hundreds of these time capsules stored in a locked attic.

12% of young adults say using phone at a family dinner is OK

This Pew Research Center report explores newly released survey findings about Americans’ views about the appropriateness of cellphone use in public places and in social gatherings and the way those views sometimes conflict with their own behaviors.

The results are based on a nationally representative survey of 3,217 adults on Pew Research Center’s American Trends Panel, 3,042 of whom are cellphone users.

The FDA warns food start-up Hampton Creek: You can’t call it “mayo” if it’s not mayonnaise

The Silicon Valley food startup Hampton Creek, which has experienced explosive growth selling egg-free mayonnaise-like spreads and cookie doughs, is in trouble with US food regulators for “misbranding” its products and failing to follow certain labeling rules.

In an official warning letter dated August 12 and posted today (Aug. 25), the Food and Drug Administration lists four “significant violations” that the food company (or is it a tech company?) must fix before the end of the month. The biggest issue raised by the regulatory agency is the same one that Unilever, maker of Hellmann’s Mayonnaise, tried to sue Hampton Creek for in 2014: You can’t call a product “Just Mayo” if it’s not mayonnaise—and that means it has tocontain eggs.... more »

1989 OR 1929?

Video: China’s stock market crisis, explained

China’s falling stock market has investors around the world on edge as it threatens to take global markets down with it.

But whether or not China’s market chaos triggers a worldwide crisis, the country is headed for a reckoning. And since there aren’t a lot of precedents, the outcome remains an open question. In this video we look at two equally likely and equally scary models for the Chinese stock market plunge: the United States’ stock market crash of 1929, and Japan’s crash of 1989.

How Safe Is Your Ground Beef?

All meat potentially contains bacteria that—if not destroyed by proper cooking—can cause food poisoning, but some meats are more risky than others.

"The results were sobering. All 458 pounds of beef we examined contained bacteria that signified fecal contamination (enterococcus and/or nontoxin-producing E. coli), which can cause blood or urinary tract infections." 

"Almost 20 percent contained C. perfringens, a bacteria that causes almost 1 million cases of food poisoning annually. Ten percent of the samples had a strain of S. aureus bacteria that can produce a toxin that can make you sick. That toxin can’t be destroyed—even with proper cooking."

//China

Think of what drives liquor markets: barmen or drinkers?

Blaming China for Black Monday is like blaming a bartender for your hangover

What is happening? Why is China—the country that people once thought was the engine of the world economy—tottering so badly?

To answer these questions it is necessary to recognize that China was never the engine of the world’s growth. To be such an engine you have to import more than you export. Then you would create a demand that is filled by other countries, which as a result export more than they import. Importers are the engines in the supply trains of the international markets. Exporters are the wagons, pulled by the demand created by the profligates.

Study: Why you never seem to know what day of the week it is

Do you find yourself forgetting which day it is during the monotony of mid-week? A new study suggests this is because during the week, you’re neither stressed nor excited.

Research published last week in PLOS ONE found that people were more likely to be confused about what day of the week it was on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and more likely to have a myriad of positive and negative associations with Monday and Friday, more so than other days of the week.

Happy 125th Birthday to the Father Of Surfing. 

The story of Duke Kahanamoku--the Hawaiian who, in 1912, first drew the world’s collective gaze upon the art of surfing--reads like mythology. Born in Honolulu in 1890, he is credited in over a dozen feature films, surfed the world’s most imposing swells before Californians knew what surfing was, won five Olympic medals in swimming and was elected sheriff of his beloved home county thirteen times.

How to do laundry in space: You don’t

Kelly is aboard the International Space Station with five other astronauts, working on 400 different experiments.  He says their days are full of  “science, maintenance and general housekeeping.”

But what is life really like, day to day?  Kelly told Couric that he spends his downtime reading, watching “Seinfeld” repeats and engaging with his social media following (he has more than 356K Twitter followers).

He also revealed that astronauts don’t do laundry — “it would be pretty complicated to make a space washer,” he said.  Instead, they discard their clothes after wearing them multiple times.  In fact, Kelly said he’s been wearing the same pair of pants for about two months.

A metabolic master switch underlying human obesity

Researchers find pathway that controls metabolism by prompting fat cells to store or burn fat.

There may now be a new approach to prevent and even cure obesity, thanks to a study led by researchers at MIT and Harvard Medical School and published today in the New England Journal of Medicine. By analyzing the cellular circuitry underlying the strongest genetic association with obesity, the researchers have unveiled a new pathway that controls human metabolism by prompting our adipocytes, or fat cells, to store fat or burn it away.

Scientists have an incredibly easy solution for better-tasting supermarket tomatoes

Any true tomato fan knows that you do not put them in the refrigerator. Cold temperatures cause tomatoes to lose their flavor, which is why so many that arrive in your home from a store are already bland.

But new scientific research has found there might be an unbelievably easy fix: a quick dip in hot water before they are ever chilled.

Constant monitoring, noise, and other interruptions can keep people awake through the night—and their health can suffer as a result.

"The reality for many, many patients is they’re woken up multiple times for things that are not strictly medically necessary, or … multiple times for the convenience of staff."

How to Know Whether to Believe a Health Study

Every day, new health care research findings are reported. Many of them suggest that if we do something — drink more coffee, take this drug, get that surgery or put in this policy — we will have better (or worse) health, or longer (or shorter) lives.

And every time you read such news, you are undoubtedly left asking: Should I believe this? Often the answer is no, but we may not know how to distinguish the research duds from the results we should heed.

Drinking Coffee May Help Prevent Colon Cancer Recurrence 

Colon cancer patients who were heavy coffee drinkers had a far lower risk of dying or having their cancer return than those who did not drink coffee.

"But, the researchers caution, cancer patients should not start ordering extra tall coffees. The study, the first to report such findings, does not prove a cause-and-effect relationship between coffee drinking and a lower risk of colon cancer recurrence. As other experts note, there may be differences between heavy coffee drinkers and abstainers that the research was not able to account for."
