STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • In a recent study involving mice, a single plasma exchange helped with muscle repair, liver fat and liver fibrosis measurements
  • Researchers believe the data help identify factors in blood products that influence health and aging
  • Many causes of death in the U.S. are influenced by nutrition and lifestyle choices, over which we have more control than we might believe
  • An important key to longevity is intermittent fasting combined with healthy eating. Additionally, quality sleep, hydration, exercise and being outdoors have an impact on health

According to the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study (GBD) published in 2019, neurodegenerative diseases, which affect the structure and function of the central nervous system (CNS), are the largest cause of disability globally. Parkinson’s disease, the most common of these diseases next to Alzheimer’s, is a progressive movement disorder that remains without a cure.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • For a limited time only, PBS is streaming a free documentary on America’s diabetes epidemic
  • More than 114 million American adults have diabetes or prediabetes and the economic ramifications of this condition are enormous. The U.S. spent $350 billion treating diabetes in 2019 alone
  • One of the best strategies to beat COVID-19 is to get any underlying chronic conditions under control; Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure can often be reversed via healthy diet and lifestyle
  • Type 2 diabetes is a diet-derived condition. It’s rooted in insulin resistance and faulty leptin signaling, caused by chronically elevated insulin and leptin levels. As such, it can be effectively treated and reversed through dietary and other lifestyle means
  • Research has shown fasting and a cyclical ketogenic diet can improve insulin sensitivity and reverse diabetes. Staying physically active is also important, as excessive sitting blocks a number of insulin-mediated systems, including muscular and cellular systems that process blood sugar

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • If you’re anxious about getting infected with novel coronavirus or worry about the health of family members, consider trying the Emotional Freedom Techniques to ease your anxiety or the FAST technique from NET
  • As governments around the world are issuing social distancing recommendations, more and more people are self-isolating and limiting their face-to-face interactions. While important to curb the spread of infectious disease, self-quarantining can also trigger or worsen feelings of loneliness
  • Even without government-recommended social distancing, loneliness is already at “epidemic” levels; 46% of American adults report feeling lonely, 47% say they do not have meaningful in-person social interactions on a daily basis and 43% report feeling isolated
  • Ease boredom and stay connected by video chatting with family and friends. Other creative solutions people have come up with include live-streamed DJ sets, online book clubs, cooking classes and other online events conducted via video conferencing or video chats
  • For those who were already isolated to begin with, the recommendation to connect through technology may not help much, since they lack a social network. Many of the most vulnerable, such as the elderly and disabled, also lack the technical know-how. For these individuals, the answer really lies in a compassionate reaching out by others, perhaps complete strangers

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Ronnie Cummins’ new book, “Grassroots Rising,” details how transforming our food and farming system worldwide can solve many of our most pressing problems, including environmental pollution, health problems, climate change and rural poverty
  • Transitioning to regenerative organic farming has the ability to solve all of these problems simultaneously
  • Far from solving world hunger, genetically engineered crops destroy soils and make food more toxic and less nutritious. Regenerative farming has demonstrated its superiority with regard to yield and nutrition, without the use of toxic chemicals
  • Education, innovation, policy changes and investment are the four things that drive this change of paradigm
  • The Via Organica farm in Mexico is promoting a novel way to produce inexpensive yet highly nutritious animal feed made from native agave plants

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome appears to be rooted in mitochondrial dysfunction. Your mitochondria are responsible for energy production, and as the name implies, low energy and severe fatigue are hallmarks of this condition
  • Immune cells in the blood of patients diagnosed with chronic fatigue show clear signs of low energy production. The debilitating fatigue they experience is due to an inability to produce the cellular energy needed
  • A ketogenic diet, high in healthy fats and low in net carbohydrates, with moderate protein, is a key dietary strategy that helps optimize mitochondrial function
  • Patients with chronic fatigue also lack diversity in the gut microbiome, and the presence of certain inflammatory cytokines in their blood closely correlates with symptom severity
  • Strategies that reduce inflammation, heal your gut microbiome and support mitochondrial function and energy synthesis are all beneficial for chronic fatigue patients
