Scientists from the Department of Senescence, Urological, and Neurological Sciences at the University of Catania in Italy evaluated the ability of L-Carnitine to improve physical and mental fatigue and cognitive functions of centenarians. This is because Centenarians are characterized by weakness, decreasing mental health, impaired mobility, and poor endurance. L-Carnitine is an important contributor to cellular energy metabolism.
The findings of clinical trials have linked the use of Thiazolidinediones, a class of diabetes drugs that include Actos and Avandia, with congestive heart failure and heart attacks. Now, new research indicates that these associations, at least with Avandia, also apply to individuals in the community, and not just clinical trials. Scientists from the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences in Toronto, and analyzed data for 159,026 older adults who were treated with at least one oral diabetes drug and followed over an average period of 3.8 years.
In a study that followed 40,462 Japanese men and women over a 12.5 year period on average, it was found that soy intake at a rate of five or more times per week protected these women from a stroke or heart attack. The study participants were between the ages of 40 to 59 at the start of the study and were free of cancer and cardiovascular disease at the start of the study. Specifically, frequent soy intake lowered the risk of a stroke by 36%, and lowered the risk of a heart attack by 45%.
In this study rats were given a chemical that causes colon cancer known as azoxymethane. The chemically induced colon cancer resembles the disease in humans. The animals were then fed a high fat diet resembling that of many of us in the USA; a diet that fuels the growth of many cancers.
The number of people living with and surviving cancer is growing. This naturally leads to increased awareness of the importance of quality of life including sexual function in survivors. Sexual dysfunction is a long-term complication of many cancer treatments.
