International studies link wearing tight bras with breast cancer

Post by Maria »

https://www.naturalhealth365.com/bras-c ... -2497.html
(NaturalHealth365) According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), the “internet and e-mail rumors and at least one book have suggested that bras cause breast cancer by obstructing lymph flow. There is no good scientific or clinical basis for this claim, and a 2014 study of more than 1,500 women found no association between wearing a bra and breast cancer risk.”

...

Singer and Grismaijer rocked the world with their groundbreaking 1991-93 U.S. Bra and Breast Cancer Study, published in their book, Dressed to Kill – which has now been confirmed by numerous international studies linking wearing tight bras with breast cancer – pointing to the role bras play in impairing the lymphatic system.

Preventing Falls especially with the elderly

Post by Maria »

Preventing Falls especially with the elderly

Read the entire article at http://www.post-gazette.com/aging-edge/ ... 1805210015

Some snippets:
Aging Edge: You study people’s gait as part of this. What goes wrong with it?

VanSwearingen: After people are 65, I wouldn’t be surprised if 50 percent of them have changed their walking, and at 75, maybe upward of two-thirds or three-quarters of people. I don’t know if it’s intentional, but people start to take slower steps and are more cautious. Once you lose that automaticity about walking, you put resources into something that doesn’t normally need it, and so if you happen to trip, those resources aren’t there available to help you. You actually expend a lot of energy when you contract your muscles in a cautious way.

Aging Edge: If that caution is harmful instead of helpful, how should people build up their confidence?

VanSwearingen: Get good practice where you feel safe. A treadmill is excellent, where you can hold on to something, set the pace where you want it, get comfortable when increasing the pace. It’s a good way to get the pattern up, forcing you to take steps at the appropriate time, while you can hang on and the ground’s not uneven.

Aging Edge: What about people without easy access to a treadmill?

VanSwearingen: You can clear your living room of some objects, say I’m going to walk over there, and practice taking bigger steps doing it. You can move the chairs away from your dining room table, put your hand lightly on the table and slide your hand along as you walk around the table. You’re creating a curved path for yourself, a safe place to practice. Or you can take walks with a friend who walks well, or a younger person.

Barbara,

Do not forget that this mom almost died. She was chronically misdiagnosed, which made her illnesses worse.

Whenever I have been seriously ill, I am sure that I did not look well either.

Thankfully, God looks at our heart, not at the simple clothes we wear, nor at our aging and wrinkled bodies.

Lyme disease bearing ticks now found throughout the USA

Post by Maria »

Ticks that carry Lyme disease are spreading fast
... Citizen scientists found ticks capable of transmitting Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses in dozens of places across the United States where the pests had never previously been recorded, a new study reports. All told, disease-carrying ticks were detected in 83 counties where they'd never been found before across 24 states. ...

The massive nationwide study also provides evidence that ticks are born carrying infectious diseases, rather than picking germs up from the animals upon which they feed, said Wendy Adams, research grant director for the Bay Area Lyme Foundation, in California.

All life stages of the most commonly encountered ticks -- the deer tick, the western black-legged tick and the lone star tick -- carried the bacteria that causes Lyme disease, Adams said. ...

Nuts. I did not realize they were born with it.
