5 common antibiotics linked to kidney stones in kids

Health experts have been wondering about the increased prevalence of kidney stones (nephrolithiasis) in the general population in the last two to three decades. Some report a 70 percent to almost double the prevalence of kidney stones, which may require surgery sometimes. And this increased prevalence has been noted even in children! Although many attribute it to the modern-day, high-protein, high-salt diet, a recently published study suggests that there might be a link between nephrolithiasis risk and five types of antibiotics commonly prescribed by doctors, or taken by some even without doctor's advice. The researchers reported the increased risk within a year after taking ...Keep on reading: 5 common antibiotics linked to kidney stones in kids.....»»

Global warming may have ‘devastating’ effects on rice — study

As carbon dioxide rises due to the burning of fossil fuels, rice will lose some of its protein and vitamin content, putting millions of people at risk of malnutrition, scientists warned on Wednesday. The change could be particularly dire in southeast Asia where rice is a major part of the daily diet, said the report in the journal Science Advances. "We are showing that global warming, climate change and particularly greenhouse gases -- carbon dioxide -- can have an impact on the nutrient content of plants we eat," said co-author Adam Drewnowski, a professor of epidemiology at the University of Washington. "This can have devastating effects on the rice-consuming countries where a...Keep on reading: Global warming may have ‘devastating’ effects on rice — study.....»»

PBA: El Destructor debuts new clean look in latest Phoenix stint

Eugene Phelps is playing his third PBA season but if you didn't recognize him Sunday against Brgy. Ginebra, well you're not alone. After an injury-plagued 2017, El Destructor completely changed his look. He cut his hair, shaved his beard, and he even changed his diet, resulting in a more lean frame. "Last year I had a foot injury an I had a surgery on my hand so I just had to switch everything up," Phelps said. "Actually, I cut my hair bald and it's just growing back now. I have a new diet [too], salad and everything so I feel pretty good. I lost like 14 pounds," he added. Against the Gin Kings, Phelps led Phoenix with 25 points, 14 rebounds, and seven assists. The Fuel Masters won in double overtime to enter the All-Star break with a winning record, 3-2. "They told me last year when I got hurt that they wanted me back," Phelps said. "So I kind of figured that I was going back for the 3rd conference but they wanted me to come a little bit early because it's a new system, you know, and then James [White] got hurt and they have me come in and play so it feels good to be back. It's family here so it feels good," he added. If there's one thing that was a bummer in Phelps' game Sunday was the fact that he cramped up in the fourth. However, his streak of winning his first game back for Phoenix continued. The Fuel Masters are now 4-0 everyting they get Phelps for a fresh conference. "I started cramping up in the 4th quarter and then when double OT came, I tried to push it but I can't even walk or anything," he said. "Thank God my team came through for me and we got the win," Phelps added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Importance of fish for heart health stressed in new review

A new scientific advisory published on Thursday has reiterated the American Heart Association's recommendation that eating fish twice a week is good for heart health. Published in the American Heart Association's journal Circulation, the new advisory also supports findings from many other recent studies that have also shown that a diet rich in fish could be beneficial for health. "Since the last advisory on eating fish was issued by the Association in 2002, scientific studies have further established the beneficial effects of eating seafood rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, especially when it replaces less healthy foods such as meats that are high in artery-clogging saturated fat," ...Keep on reading: Importance of fish for heart health stressed in new review.....»»

Keto diet–would I recommend it? Yes, but…

Last month, I tried doing something I've never tried: go on a diet. No, it's not the one where you drink just lemon water and, when you're starving, meditate to make wanting to eat go away. Nor is it about moderation and eating brown rice. I decided that if I were to go on a diet, it would be something crazy and educational. After all, I've spent a good part of my youth trying to expand my mind by drinking stuff, and most of my adult life expanding my stomach by eating stuff. So I wanted to try something completely different. Successful failure It was, like what happened to Apollo 13, a successful failure. I tried the ketogenic diet for one month, and had to decline a lot of ...Keep on reading: Keto diet–would I recommend it? Yes, but….....»»
