IN THE NEWS: Few US adults meet fruit, vegetable intake guidelines Less than 15 percent of U.S. adults eat enough fruits daily to meet federal recommendations, but the numbers are even worse in some states, dipping as low as 7.5 percent in Tennessee, according to a new study. Even fewer adults eat enough vegetables to meet recommendations, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) researchers found. Overall, in 2013, half of respondents consumed fruit less than once per day and vegetables less than 1.7 times per day. Fruit consumption was lowest in Tennessee, with about seven percent of people meeting the recommendation, and highest in California, with 17.7 percent meeting the recommendation, Moore’s team writes in CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. The proportion of Americans meeting vegetable recommendations ranged from 5.5 percent in Mississippi to 13 percent in California.

WELLNESS: Magnetic pulses may ease ringing in the ears People with tinnitus – a ringing or other “phantom” sounds in their ears – may benefit from a treatment that sends electromagnetic pulses into the brain, suggests a new study. Transcranial magnetic simulation (TMS) is not currently available for the average person with tinnitus, but the study’s lead author hopes it will someday be used along with existing therapies like hearing aids and symptom management strategies. For the new study of 64 people with significant ringing in their ears, the researchers randomly assigned half the participants to receive 2,000 TMS pulses during sessions over 10 consecutive business days. The other half of the participants received sham TMS. The sessions lasted approximately 35 minutes each. Overall, 56 percent of participants receiving TMS improved by the end of the 10 sessions, compared to 22 percent of the participants who received sham TMS. “Some people responded quite well,” Folmer said. “We were surprised they maintained their improvement throughout the six months of follow-up. I thought if people showed an improvement it would be short-lived.”

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Shoulder problems most shoulder problems, even rotary cuff injuries (as long as there is not a complete tear in the tendon or muscle), respond well to chiropractic care. The cause of shoulder problems can be inflammation or injury of the connective tissue, misalignment of the structures that make up the shoulder, muscle imbalance that coordinates the shoulders movements, electrical issues that can affect muscle incoordination including misalignments in the neck. A lot of shoulder problems can respond immediately to treatment though some take time in order for healing to be accomplished. If you or somebody you know suffers from a shoulder problem talk to me or have your friend call our office. Chiropractic first, drug second, surgery last.

DIET: Death by Sugar (Sweetened Beverages)? Sugar-sweetened soft drinks, fruit juices and other beverages represent a growing health danger that goes far beyond simple cavities and poor energy; a recent analysis suggests regular consumption of sugary drinks can indirectly lead to death– yes, death. Sound far-fetched? Not really, and here’s why: According to the researchers, who analyzed data from studies investigating the impact of sugar-sweetened beverage intake on body-mass index (BMI) and diabetes – and the resulting impact of BMI on cardiovascular disease and cancer, nearly 200,000 deaths worldwide can be attributed to drinking sugar-sweetened beverages. And that’s nearly 200,000 deaths every year. Specifically, the researchers estimated that consumption of sweetened drinks contributes to 133,000 deaths from diabetes, 45,000 from cardiovascular disease, and 6,450 from cancer on an annual basis.

IN THE NEWS: Ways Gut Bacteria Affect Your Health A growing body of research suggests that gut bacteria influence weight. One recent study found that obese people have a less diversity in their gut flora than lean people. Your gut is the main area in the body where the immune system interacts with what’s brought in from the outside world. Thus, the interaction between gut bacteria and your own cells appear to play an important role in the development of a fully-functioning immune system. Disrupting gut bacteria may have an effect on the brain, and in turn, behavior, studies in animal suggest. If gut bacteria play a role in human behavior, its possible that therapies that aim to restore normal gut flora, such as probiotics, may be helpful in correcting behavior and mood changes in people with gastrointestinal diseases, according to the researchers. Abnormal gut bacteria in infants may be one cause of colic, or excessive crying, recent research suggests.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Low testosterone may raise depression risk Researchers found that more than half of the men in the study who had lower levels of testosterone had a diagnosis of depression, or showed symptoms of the condition, while a quarter of participants were taking medication for the disease. Analysis showed that the study participants had higher rates of obesity and lower rates of physical activity than their peers in the general population. Participants also suffered from erectile dysfunction, decreased libido, fewer morning erections, low energy and sleep disturbances. Long-term use of pharmaceutical testosterone can have significant side effects. Ask about a natural approach to testosterone.

IN THE NEWS: Statins linked to aggression in older women Postmenopausal women who take statins to manage their cholesterol levels may be more likely to experience an increase in aggression over time than those who don’t take statins, a new study suggests. In the study, researchers looked data from a previous study in which about 1,000 people were randomly assigned to take either statins or a placebo for six months. They found that among women older than 45, those who took statins showed an increase in aggressive behavior over the course of the study, compared with those who took the placebo. NOTE: statins have a pitiful track record when it comes to saving lives. This is one more of the long list of side effects. Remember as we age people with the highest cholesterol live longer than people with the lowers cholesterol.

WELLNESS/PREVENTION: Flu vaccine and narcolepsy: New findings may explain link An unusual increase in narcolepsy cases in Europe was linked to a new flu vaccine used there, and now researchers may have figured out why: A protein in the vaccine appears to mimic one in the brain that plays a role in the sleep disorder. People with narcolepsy experience severe daytime sleepiness and “sleep attacks,” in which they suddenly fall asleep for a short time. The vaccine that was linked to the disorder was used in 2009 and 2010 to protect against the H1N1 strain of flu, which is sometimes called the swine flu. NOTE: every year for the past 5 years, at least, they’ve got the wrong strain in the flu shot. No major study has shown that the flu shot has saved lives or prevented hospitalizations. Think twice before you have aluminum and mercury injected into your bloodstream.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Memory loss Memory issues can come from multiple sources. Low blood sugar can deprive the brain the of the energy it needs to do its functions. A lack of sleep can put the brain in severe stress. Drugs and alcohol are common causes for memory problems. Toxicity can be a source, particularly heavy metals that come from both the environment and medical treatment like vaccines. But a recent study of patients with neck problems showed a significant loss of oxygen in the brain, so keeping your neck in good alignment is important. And last but not least is nutritional deficiencies that can lead to things like depression and anxiety which can cause arise in cortisol which can affect memory. If you have concerns about your memory let us do a evaluation and find out why.

IN THE NEWS: Here’s what went wrong with last year’s flu vaccine Americans got little benefit from last season’s flu shot — the vaccine was only about 19 percent effective, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s largely because one of the flu strains that was used to make the vaccine did not match well with the actual flu strains that were circulating. NOTE: this would be funny if it wasn’t so sad. How many millions of people lined up like sheep to have toxic metals injected into their system like aluminum because they thought they were going to get protection? Probably a total of 8 out of the last 10 flu seasons this could be written for. In fact if I was a health reporter all I would need to do each year is copy and paste my same report from last year and it would be accurate. Buyer beware.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: Knee problems I’m not for sure how many knee replacement surgeries are done each year but I can tell you that over 90% of them would have been unnecessary with proper care. Most people don’t realize how much chiropractic can improve knee function. Excluding injuries which might require surgery most knee problems gradually develop over time due to misalignment, inflammatory chemistry and nutritional deficiencies. If you or someone you know suffers from knee problems tell them about chiropractic. Unless the damage is gone beyond the body’s ability to repair chiropractic and nutritional therapy along with exercise can help tremendously.
