Cancer and Cellphone not related
Two studies that bombarded rats and mice with cellphone radiation found a weak link to some heart tumors, but federal regulators and some scientists say don’t worry — it is safe to use your device. They still do. Previous studies of cellphone users had found little reason for concern, but the newest research took a closer look at the effects of super-high doses in animals to address some lingering questions that could not be tested on humans. Cellphone radiation study finds more questions than answers. Polar bears could face extinction faster than thought, study says. The rat study released Friday found a small increase in an unusual type of heart tumor in male rats, but there were no significant problems in female rats or in a separate study of mice. In particular, scientists could not find hard evidence for concern about brain tumors. The lead author of the research, John Bucher of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, is not changing his cellphone use or advising his family to.
Alcohol can keep the brain clean?
Low levels of alcohol consumption may reduce inflammation and help the brain clear away toxins, including those associated with Alzheimer’s disease, new research suggests. “Prolonged intake of excessive amounts of ethanol is known to have adverse effects on the central nervous system,” says Maiken Nedergaard, co-director of the Center for Translational Neuromedicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) and lead author of the study. “However, in this study we have shown for the first time that low doses of alcohol are potentially beneficial to brain health, namely it improves the brain’s ability to remove waste.”
E-cigarette flavours that are unsafe
They’re the most dangerous e-cigarette flavours, poisoning the immune system and raising the risk of infections and life-threatening diseases, according to new research. Mixing them up is even worse, a new study found. Flavouring chemicals and liquids used in the battery-powered devices are toxic to the white cells in the blood, warn scientists. Exposure can cause significant inflammation to monocytes — the biggest type of white blood cell in the immune system that combat bacteria and viruses. Inflammation is linked to all major illnesses including cancer, heart disease, diabetes and even dementia. The study, published in the journal Frontiers in Physiology, adds to growing evidence on the harmful health effects of e-cigarettes.
