Coronavirus not found in 957 grocery store samples | CTV News

by health and nutrition advice journalist
TORONTO — A new study tested more than 900 samples from high-touch surfaces in Ontario grocery stores for SARS-CoV-2 and found zero positive results, suggesting the risk of exposure to the virus in grocery stores is low. Maria Corradini, one of the study’s authors and an associate professor at the University of Guelph’s department of food science, said the results add to the growing evidence that transmission of coronavirus via surfaces is “very improbable.” This means practices that were adopted by some in the early days of the pandemic, such as wiping down your groceries when you bring them home […]

Remote control of blood sugar

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Researchers from the University of Iowa have discovered a safe new way to manage blood sugar non-invasively. Exposing diabetic mice to a combination of static electric and magnetic fields for a few hours per day normalizes two major hallmarks of type 2 diabetes, according to new findings published Oct. 6 in Cell Metabolism. “We’ve built a remote control to manage diabetes,” says Calvin Carter, PhD, one of the study’s lead authors and a postdoc in the lab of senior author Val Sheffield, MD, PhD, professor in the Stead Family Department of Pediatrics, Division of Medical Genetics and Genomics, and the Department of Ophthalmology and […]

Biden to meet with Pope Francis to discuss coronavirus, climate change, poverty – The Washington Post

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Biden is aligned with the pontiff on many central issues, including climate change and economic disparities. But the question of whether he should receive Communion — which is likely to come to a boil when bishops hold their annual meeting in November — has set off an awkward dynamic, not just between Biden and the church but also between Francis and American Catholic leaders. “I don’t think the issue of the Eucharist will dominate the meeting,” said Massimo Faggioli, a Villanova University professor of theology who has written a book on Biden and Catholicism. “But for American Catholics who follow […]

Functional Medicine vs Integrative Medicine: A Deep Dive Into Which Is Better

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Have you ever made an appointment with your doctor and ended up leaving more confused than when you got there? Or have you been sent home with a diagnosis and prescription that you don’t even understand? If so, you’re not alone. While our conventional medical model cures diseases and saves lives every single day, it doesn’t always address the underlying causes of chronic disease. This leaves many difficult to pinpoint symptoms left untreated or brushed off. That’s where functional and integrative medicine come in. Today we’re going to explore exactly what functional medicine and integrative medicine are, the differences and […]

Want to Defeat Coronavirus? Address Diabetes and Hypertension

by health and nutrition advice journalist
While the World Health Organization has put the death rate from novel coronavirus, COVID-19, at 3.4%, a study in Nature Medicine put it much lower, at 1.4%. The fact is, with many cases going unreported and untested, mild and asymptomatic cases may not be included in official COVID-19 death rate figures, which could skew the death rate significantly, making it appear higher than it actually is. In Italy, however — the “new” epicenter for COVID-19 — the number of deaths reportedly overtook those in China by mid- to late March 2020. As the home to the world’s second-oldest population after […]

In a New Study, Researchers Claim They’ve Found a Way to Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Reversing Type 2 Diabetes Researchers from Newcastle and Glasgow Universities believe they have found a way to effectively reverse type 2 diabetes, without requiring a new kind of drug or invasive surgery. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects how a person’s body metabolizes sugar, either because they’ve developed resistance to the hormone insulin, or their pancreas fails to produce enough insulin. It’s long been believed that the condition is manageable, but not curable. According to findings published in the journal The Lancet, however, type 2 diabetes can be reversed through weight loss. More specifically, by reducing the amount […]

Nolte: NY Times Publishes False Report of 900K Child Coronavirus Hospitalizations

by health and nutrition advice journalist
The far-left New York Times published a report that, among other falsehoods, claimed some 900,000 children have been hospitalized for the coronavirus. The actual number is, uhm, 63,000. The Times was forced to issue a correction. The so-called reporter responsible for this irresponsible error is a woman named Apoorva Mandavilli. This close-minded, incurious woketard once used her verified Twitter account to declare the Wuhan lab leak theory “racist.” But, of course, we now know that the lab leak theory is the most likely explanation for the spread of the coronavirus, and we know it despite so-called reporters, like Mandavilli, who […]

‘The president’s decline is alarming’: Biden trapped in coronavirus malaise – POLITICO

by health and nutrition advice journalist
“There is a malaise,” said Sarah Longwell, a moderate Republican strategist who became a vocal supporter of Biden in 2020, and led the focus group of Democratic voters. “People don’t feel like their lives have been improved. They did sort of feel that promises aren’t being kept.” Nearly nine months into office, Biden and his team contend that the ravages of the pandemic are starting to recede due to his actions. They point to polling showing strong support for his legislative agenda, anchored by physical infrastructure and social and climate spending packages. They note how rare it’s been for Democratic […]

COVID-19 is linked to new diabetes cases—but long-term problems could be more severe

by health and nutrition advice journalist
Almost daily microbiologist Peter Jackson receives emails from people who recovered from COVID-19 only to discover that their health troubles have just begun. Recently, a mother of two in her 30s wrote to the Stanford University professor to say that she now takes a slew of diabetes medications every day—even though she hadn’t been at risk for the disease before her coronavirus infection. Experts have known since the beginning of the pandemic that having diabetes—a condition when the body doesn’t make enough insulin or use it well enough to counteract a rise in blood sugar—is a risk factor for more severe […]
