    1. One immune cell type appears to attack any type of cancer

      One immune cell type appears to attack any type of cancer

      While cancerous cells look a lot like normal human cells, they're still different enough that the immune system regularly attacks them. Obviously, this attack sometimes bogs down, allowing cancer to thrive and spread. Figuring out how to get the immune system back on track has been a major focus of research, and success in the area has been honored with a Nobel Prize.

    2. Scientists figured out why stress turns your hair gray

      Scientists figured out why stress turns your hair gray

      It might not come as a shock to learn that stress can turn your hair gray, but a team of Harvard scientists recently discovered the surprising reason why.

      Scientists have long understood that gray hair is the result of the natural aging process, certain pigment/follicle disorders, and stress. But until now, we’ve never known exactly what role stress plays in causing gray hair. Previous theories have insisted that stress somehow accelerates the aging process or triggers an autoimmune response.

    3. WHO officials try to contain China coronavirus — as well as public fears

      WHO officials try to contain China coronavirus — as well as public fears

      World health officials hesitated Wednesday to designate an outbreak of a flu-like coronavirus that’s killed at least 17 people as a global health emergency, trying to contain the fast-spreading illness without unnecessarily spooking global trade.

      The World Health Organization is set to reconvene Thursday after an emergency committee of international health experts were split on deciding whether the virus should be classified as a “public health emergency of international concern,” Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told journalists on a call. That gives the organization the power to set temporary recommendations to coordinate a global health response with its 196 member countries, which include the United States.

      Don't ignore signs of hearing loss

      It’s something that many people don’t like to admit — that their hearing isn’t what it used to be. Maybe they keep turning the TV volume up, or certain words are hard to make out.

      Ignoring it won’t make it go away, however. In fact, scientific studies and specialists working in the hearing instrument field say that, if left untreated, a decline in hearing can eventually lead to even bigger problems like depression and dementia.

      Is Your Cannabis Safe? 5 Questions To Ask Yourself

      Not all cannabis is created equal. Wise consumers know how to spot the real stuff from the black market poison.

      in 2019, cannabis-related media headlines were dominated by the public health crisis surrounding vaping and other electronic smoking devices. In a majority of the reported incidents, the products were unlawful or counterfeit and purchased from illegal operators.

    7. FDA Gives First Ebola Vaccine for Adults the Green Light

      FDA Gives First Ebola Vaccine for Adults the Green Light

      The first Ebola vaccine approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is a single-dose injection called Ervebo.

      The vaccine from Merck & Co. is approved to protect against the Zaire ebolavirus in people 18 and older.

      In the United States, Ebola infections are rare. Confirmed cases have involved people in other countries who became infected and then traveled to the United States, or health care workers who were infected while treating Ebola patients, according to the FDA.

      Naturopathy: Wikipedia’s Assault on Natural Medicine

      Americans are increasingly turning to Complementary and Alternative Medical (CAM) systems for their healthcare needs. This trend has been underway for several decades. This has been perceived as competition by the medical establishment. The reasons for this growing popularity include the cost of conventional treatments, rising out-of-pocket expenses, serious drug adverse effects, and physician and diagnostic errors, which continue to plague the orthodox medical establishment.

    9. Socialized Medicine = Overworked General Practitioners

      Socialized Medicine = Overworked General Practitioners

      I am in London on a brief sojourn and a story in the Daily Telegraph struck me as highly relevant to the Bernie Sanders/Elizabeth Warren push for socialized medicine, which they call “Medicare for All” (but which is really “Medicaid for All”). It turns out, new GPs in the U.K. plan to only work part time because the existing work load on the country’s GPs is untenable. Headline, “Full-Time GPs a Thing of the Past, Says New Chief Director.” Get these statistics:
