Vitamin D does not prevent depression or improve mood

jhon yudha

In one of the largest studies of its kind, researchers found that consuming vitamin D supplements did not prevent adults from becoming depressed or improve their mood.

The Massachusetts team says its findings may finally put the popular myth to rest that a deficiency in the vitamin is associated with a higher risk of developing depression later in life. A study was published Tuesday in the journal JAMA.

“One scientific issue is that you actually need a very large number of study participants to tell whether or not a treatment is helping to prevent development of depression,” study lead author and principal investigator Dr. Olivia Okereke, a physician in the psychiatry department at Massachusetts General Hospital, said in a news release. “With nearly 20,000 people, our study was statistically powered to address this issue.”

Vitamin D is often called the “sunshine vitamin” because the skin can naturally make it when

Irish scientists shed new light on why exercise promotes bone growth

jhon yudha

Irish scientists have shed new light on why exercise boosts bone growth, which has opened the door to potential new therapies for debilitating bone diseases such as osteoporosis.

When bone cells, known as osteocytes, are subjected to physical loading, similar to that experienced during exercise, they produce signals causing human bone marrow stem cells to grow new bone, a team based at Trinity College Dublin have established.

“This mechanism can be functionalised to create new therapeutic approaches to bone diseases which affect millions of people globally,” they concluded.

About 300,000 people in Ireland have osteoporosis, which causes bones to become weak and brittle, while many more may live with the disease undetected. It can be particularly problematic as people get older when bone regeneration becomes slower.

One in four men and one in two women over 50 will develop a fracture due to osteoporosis in their lifetime, according to the

A northern Michigan woman is not only a trailblazer for other women but for minorities- specifically American Indians or Native Americans.  Dr. Jessica Rickert was the first American Indian Native American Dentistfemale dentist in the country and she so just happens to be in northern Michigan. She’s a Potawatomi American Indian, part of the Algonquian Native American people.

“The Potawatomi have a very precious saying that they live by and that is our people are as a great river. We flow from forever to forever. The river comes from drops of water. From the sky, from the hills, and from the springs. Each individual drop is insignificant.  It’s nothing.  Yet when we all come together, all of us, like a river it cuts a path through anything in its way, even a granite,” says Dr. Rickert.

Her focused mindset and the resilient outlook is only part of where her story begins. Originally

Mimicking exercise could be key to new therapy to grow new bone for those with osteoporosis

jhon yudha

MIMICKING exercise could be key to a new therapy to grow new bone for those with osteoporosis, new Trinity College research has found.

Researchers found when bone cells (osteocytes) are subjected to physical loading – similar to that experienced during exercise – they produce signals causing human bone marrow stem cells to grow new bone.

This can then create new therapeutic approaches to bone diseases, including osteoporosis, affecting millions of people globally.

Professor David Hoey, from Trinity’s School of Engineering, said: “This work highlights the importance of considering physical factors in biology and medicine.

“It demonstrates an interesting example of where mechanics alone was sufficient to change cell behaviour and in this case, support bone growth.

“This gives us significant insight into the role of exercise in bone formation and specifically intra-cellular communication.”

Around 300,000 people in Ireland have osteoporosis and many more may live with the disease undetected.

About 95% of 12-year-olds in the Philippines have tooth decay or cavities. And cavities affect 7 in 10 children in India, one-third of Tanzania teens and nearly 1 in every 3 Brazilians.

These and other startling oral health statistics are the focus of a two-part series published this week in The Lancet. In it, more than a dozen dentists and public health experts call for radical action to end neglected and widespread oral disease.

The culprit?

“Sugar is the causative agent for dental decay,” says Robert Weyant, one of the study authors and a dental public health expert at the University of Pittsburgh. “Basically, without sugar, you won’t develop
