COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is a generic term that involves blockage of the airways of the lungs due to lung damage making it difficult to breathe, it is usually caused by smoking. Muscle wasting and muscle dysfunction are strong independent predictors of mortality in patients with COPD. Thirty eight patients with COPD were randomly given either an inactive placebo or 5.7g Creatine Monohydrate in carbohydrate 3 times a day for 2 weeks as a loading-saturation dose.
Folic acid is a B complex vitamin that decreases the risk of birth defects, reduces levels of homocysteine - an artery inflamming metabolite, and helps keep cells on the road to normalcy instead of on the road to neoplasia. In this study, forty-one men with normal or high-normal blood pressure (systolic pressure of greater than 130 to over 145 and diastolic pressure of greater than 80 to over 90) were randomly placed on 5mg of folic acid daily or a placebo for 3 weeks, then they were crossed-over after a 4 week washout period. The folic acid supplement reduced brachial pulse pressure (pressure in the arm) by 3.1 to 6.7 mm Hg, and large arteries complied with changes in blood pressure more easily.
In a small but alarming study it was found that on average, 200 industrial chemicals, including pesticides were found in umbilical cord blood from 10 babies. A total of 287 chemicals were found including 209 never detected before in cord blood. The umbilical cord is the connection from the placenta that supplies blood, oxygen, and nutrients from the mothers blood to the developing baby.
In a recent study of radiology technicians, even low level, chronic exposure to ionizing radiation (X-rays) raised the risk of basal cell carcinoma. The risk was greater for people with lighter vs. darker hair and eye color.
