Mental health disorders common following mild head injury

A new study reveals that approximately 1 in 5 individuals may experience mental health symptoms up to six months after mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), suggesting the importance of follow-up care for these patients. Scientists also identified factors that may increase the risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or major depressive disorder following mild mTBI or concussion through analysis of the Transforming Research and Clinical Knowledge in Traumatic Brain Injury (TRACK-TBI) study cohort.

Vitamin D could lower the risk of developing diabetes

The benefits of vitamin D in promoting bone health are already well known. A new study suggests that vitamin D also may promote greater insulin sensitivity, thus lowering glucose levels and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The benefits of vitamin D in promoting bone health are already well known. A new study out of Brazil suggests that vitamin D also may promote greater insulin sensitivity, thus lowering glucose levels and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Results are published online today in Menopause, the journal of The North American Menopause Society (NAMS).

Other recent studies have shown a clear relationship between vitamin D and glycemic control, suggesting that vitamin D increases insulin sensitivity and improves pancreatic beta-cell function. In this cross-sectional study involving 680 Brazilian women aged 35 to 74 years, the goal was to evaluate the possible association between vitamin D deficiency and increased glycemia.

Your body image is impacted by those around you

Spending time with people who are not preoccupied with their bodies can improve your own eating habits and body image.

Spending time with people who are not preoccupied with their bodies can improve your own eating habits and body image, according to researchers from the University of Waterloo.

In a new study, researchers examined how social interactions influence body image. They found that in addition to the previous findings that being around people preoccupied with their body image was detrimental, that spending time with people who were non-body focused had a positive impact.

Una ostra, yaciendo abierta sobre el lecho marino, sintió que una perla suelta se deslizaba sobre ella.
La ostra cerró su concha, y la perla cayó dentro de la grieta de una roca.Luego de un esfuerzo tremendo, la ostra logró recobrar la perla y la colocó justo a su lado sobre una hoja.
“Este soborno quizá evite que los pescadores de perlas me lleven”, pensó, ya que algo sabía acerca de los hombres que buscaban perlas.
Sin embargo, cuando un pescador de perlas se acercó, sus ojos estaban alerta para distinguir ostras, no perlas sueltas por ahí.
Entonces tomó la ostra, la cual resulta que no tenía perla alguna… y la verdadera perla se fue rodando. Aún no ha sido redescubierta.
