Pela primeira vez, pesquisadores detectam o crescimento de células saudáveis que revestem as vias aéreas em ex-fumantes. Comparado aos tabagistas, o número dessas estruturas protetoras é 40% maior
Many of you will be aware of how fatty build-ups in the arteries can increase the chances of developing heart problems, but now scientists have found early evidence the same sort of clogging could happen in the lungs – and it might be linked to asthma.
It’s already known that people who are overweight have a higher risk of asthma. Before now it was thought the connection could be caused by extra pressure on the lungs, or additional inflammation in the body. Now there’s evidence fatty deposits may play a part, too.
An 18-year-old showed up in a Long Island emergency room, gasping for breath, vomiting and dizzy. When a doctor asked if the teenager had been vaping, he said no.
There are many examples of the mind-body connection.
London (CNN)Scientists believe they have discovered the first examples of air pollution traveling through the lungs of pregnant women and into their placentas, potentially reaching their fetuses.
Scientists have found evidence suggesting emotional stress in infancy has significantly more far-reaching effects on the body than previously thought and could even result in disease later in life.
Most of the health problems plaguing our modern world have one thing in common: inflammation. Heart disease, autoimmune conditions, arthritis, diabetes, cancer, digestive problems, anxiety, depression, brain fog, and hormonal problems can all be traced back to the inflammatory response—in one way or another. And as a functional medicine doctor, I see the impact inflammation has on the health of people around the world every single day.
In the past, I’ve shared my favourite foods, elixirs, mind tricks, and science-based tools to balance out inflammation, and now I want to share with you another powerful tool to drive inflammation levels down. I personally use this tool on a weekly basis and have seen it work for countless patients. That tool is intermittent fasting (IF), and it has the health blogosphere all abuzz. Here’s what you need to know.
Storrs, CT (Scicasts) — Certain blood vessels in the brainstem constrict when blood vessels elsewhere in the body would dilate. And that contrary behaviour is what keeps us breathing, according to a new paper by UConn researchers published May 8 in eLife.
A new study has found evidence to show that there is actually a direct link between nasal breathing and our cognitive functions. Leer Más
