I believe one of the biggest reasons we face so many different health problems in this country is because there is a massive lack of awareness and education.
That’s why I’d like to introduce Uncommon Wisdom Daily’s inaugural health research roundup. Today we’ll look at some of the most important and groundbreaking medical, health and fitness research from around the world.
This is my way of helping you keep up on recent exploration and the most impactful stories around. And in the coming weeks, we’ll look to delve deeper into some of these topics and other natural ways to boost your health.
I’ve provided some excerpts below. Click on the links to learn more. Enjoy!
"WE HAVE all experienced the influence of gut bacteria on our emotions. Just think how you felt the last time you had a stomach bug. Now it is becoming clear that certain gut bacteria can positively influence our mood and behavior.
"The way they achieve this is gradually being uncovered, raising the possibility of unlocking new ways to treat neurobehavioral disorders such as depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)."
"Twelve weeks of aerobic exercise significantly boosted testosterone levels in overweight and obese men, with the greatest increases seen among vigorous exercisers, according to research presented at the Integrative Biology of Exercise 7 meeting in Phoenix."
"Emulsifiers, which are added to most processed foods to aid texture and extend shelf life, can alter intestinal bacteria in a manner that promotes intestinal inflammation and colorectal cancer, according to a new study done by Georgia State University."
"Scientists have measured the catastrophic genetic damage caused by smoking in different organs of the body and identified several different mechanisms by which tobacco smoking causes mutations in DNA.
"Researchers at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, the Los Alamos National Laboratory and their collaborators found smokers accumulated an average of 150 extra mutations in every lung cell for each year of smoking one packet of cigarettes a day."
"Sleep deprivation may result in people consuming more calories during the following day, according to a systematic review and meta-analysis led by researchers at King’s College London.
"The meta–analysis combined the results of many previous small intervention studies to produce a more robust answer and found that sleep-deprived people consumed an average of 385 kcal per day extra, which is equivalent to the calories of about four and a half slices of bread."
"New research published online in The FASEB Journal suggests that omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are found in fish oil, could improve the function of the glymphatic system, which facilitates the clearance of waste from the brain, and promote the clearance of metabolites including amyloid-β peptides, a primary culprit in Alzheimer’s disease and a suspecting culprit of Parkinson’s disease."
