High blood sugar in pregnancy ups heart risk in babies 16.12.2017 The Tribune
NEW YORK: Higher blood sugar in early pregnancy raises the baby’s risk of a congenital heart defect, a study claims. “We found that in women who develop diabetes during pregnancy, we can measure risk for having a child with congenital heart disease by looking at their glucose values during the first trimester of pregnancy,” said James Priest, from the Stanford University School of Medicine in the US. The research team studied medical records from 19,107 pairs of mothers and their babies born between 2009 and 2015. The records, published in The Journal of Pediatrics, included details of the mothers’ prenatal care, including blood test results and any cardiac diagnoses made for the babies during pregnancy or after birth. Infants with certain genetic diseases, those born from multiple pregnancies and those whose mothers had extremely low or high body-mass-index measures were not included in the study. Of the infants in the study, 811 were diagnosed with congenital heart disease, and the remaining 18,296 ...

Kids who eat healthier food have better self-esteem: Study 16.12.2017 The Tribune
London, December 16 Children who eat healthy food may have better self-esteem and fewer emotional problems, according to a European study. Researchers found that fish intake (two to three times a week) was associated with better self-esteem and no emotional and peer problems. Intake of whole meal products was associated with no peer problems. For the findings published in the journal BMC Public Health, the authors examined 7,675 children aged two to nine. They found that a higher Healthy Dietary Adherence Score (HDAS) at the beginning of the study period was associated with better self-esteem and fewer emotional and peer problems two years later. “We found that in young children aged two to nine there is an association between adherence to healthy dietary guidelines and better psychological well-being,” said Louise Arvidsson, from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. “It includes fewer emotional problems, better relationships with other children and higher self-esteem, two years later.

Toronto, December 16 Toronto billionaire and philanthropist Barry Sherman and his wife have been found dead in their mansion and the police said they were investigating the deaths as suspicious. Const. David Hopkinson would not identify the two bodies found on Friday at the home of Apotex founder Bernard “Barry” Sherman and his wife Honey. But Ontario Health Minister Eric Hoskins said the couple had been discovered dead.

Cup of hot tea can cut down risk of developing Glaucoma, says study 16.12.2017
A new study has found that drinking a cup of tea at least once a day can reduce the risk of Glaucoma in a person. Glaucoma is an eye disease which damages the optic nerve and causes vision loss. It damages the optic nerve by forming a fluid pressure inside the eye. Currently, Glaucoma effects 57.5 million people worldwide, as per reports, and the count is expected to surge to 65.5 million by 2020. The research, published online in the British Journal of Ophthalmology, compared people who consumed tea and those who did not, and noted that those who consumed tea at least once a day had lower risk of Glaucoma than those who did not drink tea. Speaking about the study, lead author Anne Coleman, said that the new findings have shown that lifestyle changes can also prevent vision loss from Glaucoma. She went on to add. "Further research is needed to establish the importance of these findings." During the study, the researchers referred to data from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey ...

Infertility in women tied to insomnia 16.12.2017
Women with sleep disorders other than sleep apnea may be more than three times as likely to experience infertility as their counterparts who don"t have trouble sleeping, a recent study suggests. When insomnia was to blame for women"s sleeping difficulties, they were more than four times as likely as peers who slept well to experience infertility, the study also found. Previous research has linked what"s known as apnea, or disrupted breathing during sleep, with infertility. But the current study looked only at women with other types of sleep disorders, offering fresh evidence of the need for women to pay close attention to healthy habits that can help with sleep if they"re trying to conceive, said lead study author Dr. I-Duo Wang of the Tri-Service General Hospital and National Defense Medical Center in Taipei, Taiwan. The risk increases with age, and can also be exacerbated by smoking, excessive drinking, stress, an unhealthy diet, too much exercise, being overweight or obese or ...

Scrolling through Facebook feed may make you sad, says study 16.12.2017
Calif: It's not quite like tobacco companies warning about the dangers of smoking, but Facebook is acknowledging something many already know: Using social media can be bad for your health. The social media giant whose platform has become a daily addiction for hundreds of millions of people sheds light in a blog post Friday on what it says are two sides of the issue. It notes research showing an increase in teen depression with technology use. It also points to its own research that shows improvements in well-being from interacting with close friends online. Facebook, of course, thrives when people engage with its platform. Facebook's Director of Research David Ginsberg and research scientist Moira Burke cite a study in the Journal of Experimental Psychology that found University of Michigan students randomly assigned to read Facebook for 10 minutes were in a worse mood at the end of the day than students assigned to post or talk to friends on the platform. It also cited research that Facebook ...
