Addiction and Recovery: When Your Parents are the Problem 

 

I was 13.

My mother seated us in the back so that we could read and fidget without distracting the others. We weren’t the only kids there, but there weren’t many of us. We didn’t have family to watch us, and looking back, I realize how hard my mother must have worked to heal — while raising children. But it didn’t always work so well, sadly, as we were put into foster care later on.

The AA meetings we attended were usually pretty full. It was humbling to see so many men and women admit their weaknesses; it was heartbreaking to know that some people wouldn’t make it back.

12-Year-Old Boy in Coma After Being Attacked on Bike by Pack of Dogs: They 'Could've Killed Him' 

 

A 12-year-old Mississippi boy is in a coma after he was attacked by a pack of dogs while riding his bike on Friday.

Aden Green was “mauled by six dogs” in Winona, a spokeswoman for the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department tells PEOPLE. Green was reportedly riding his bike when the mixed-breed dogs spotted him and attacked, Montgomery County Sheriff Bubba Nix tells PEOPLE.

“The dogs pulled Aden off his bike and into a ditch,” reads a GoFundMe pagethis link opens in a new tab set up for the family. “Thankfully someone driving by was able to beat the dogs away from him and call for help.”

'Medieval' diseases flare as unsanitary living conditions proliferate 

 

Jennifer Millar keeps trash bags and hand sanitizer near her tent, and she regularly pours water mixed with hydrogen peroxide on the sidewalk nearby. Keeping herself and the patch of concrete she calls home clean is a top priority.

But this homeless encampment off a Hollywood freeway ramp is often littered with needles and trash, and soaked in urine. Rats occasionally scamper through, and Millar fears the consequences.

"I worry about all those diseases," said Millar, 43, who said she has been homeless most of her life.

Infectious diseases — some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages — are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard.

The UN reports humanity is failing its climate change goals 

 

Despite the danger, there has been little climate change action since the 2016 Paris Agreement — three years later, the world is still on track to exceed the 2°C of warming target by as early as 2040. So this week, the UN is once again sounding the alarm on the unprecedented environmental damage that has proceeded largely unchecked.

In its 6th Global Environmental Outlook report, released today, scientists explore how human actions are threatening the food, water, and natural systems that we take for granted. The report highlights how air pollution from fossil fuels and chemical production kills 6 to 7 million people every year. It underscores the unprecedented scale of biodiversity loss around the planet, which threatens food supplies for billions of people. And it emphasizes the rapid decline of safe drinking water sources around the world as a result of intensive agriculture and chemical contamination.

Current Training Of Physicians To Care For LGBTQ Individuals Is Falling Short 

 

Study suggests standardized training needed for medical residents

(Boston)–Not enough is being done to prepare physicians to care for the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) patients. Better physician training on their unique clinical needs may eliminate many of the health disparities among this growing segment of the population according to a new study.

Approximately 3.8 percent of the U.S. population identifies as a sexual or gender minority (i.e. lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and/or queer). Many experience significant health issues often as a result of discrimination and harassment.

Your Environment Is Cleaner. Your Immune System Has Never Been So Unprepared. 

 

Should you pick your nose?

Don’t laugh. Scientifically, it’s an interesting question.

Should your children pick their noses? Should your children eat dirt? Maybe: Your body needs to know what immune challenges lurk in the immediate environment.

Should you use antibacterial soap or hand sanitizers? No. Are we taking too many antibiotics? Yes.

“I tell people, when they drop food on the floor, please pick it up and eat it,” said Dr. Meg Lemon, a dermatologist in Denver who treats people with allergies and autoimmune disorders.

Judge bars unvaccinated students from returning to Rockland County school 

 

A federal judge in Rockland County, New York has jumped into the simmering debate over measles vaccinations. With cases rising, the judge barred 50 unvaccinated students from attending the Green Meadow Waldorf School for at least three weeks.

Parent Beatrice Burgis agrees with the judge's ruling that would keep unvaccinated kids at home.

"I believe that he's trying to mitigate a potential further outbreak and he's trying to keep everybody safe," she said.

On Tuesday, a new case in Rockland County brought the total to 146. This year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported 228 cases in 12 states. The Rockland County outbreak was centered in an Orthodox Jewish community.

Kentucky's hepatitis A outbreak claims another victim, raising the death toll to 44 

 

Kentucky's hepatitis A outbreak contributed to another death, bringing the outbreak's toll to 44, according to the latest weekly state report posted on Tuesday.

The nation's largest hepatitis A outbreak, declared in November 2017, has sickened 4,288 people and sent 2,065 of them to the hospital. The new report also shows cases continued a downward trend in rural Kentucky.

Dr. Charles Noplis, a psychiatrist focusing on addiction medicine, said many of the Kentuckians who die from hepatitis A are especially vulnerable because they have other health issues, such as hepatitis C. Among the general public, he said, death from hepatitis A is rare.

"I would've never guessed the deaths would be this high," said Noplis, who practices at Renew Recovery and sees patients in London, Kentucky. "I think it underscores the biggest issues at hand in the southeastern portion of the state. We need better health care, better education."

Texas company recalls contaminated water, unapproved herbs, then shuts down 
 

A second-generation family-run business operating out of Dimmitt, Texas, is no more. McDaniel Life-Line is closing up shop after issuing two recalls within a month for products found by federal regulators to be contaminated with a potentially dangerous bacteria or skin-burning ingredients that could potentially disfigure users.

All Life-Line Water, sold online to consumers in the U.S. and Canada, is being recalled after analysis by the Food and Drug Administration found the product to be tainted with pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacteria that can cause blood infections in those with weakened immune systems, leading to serious illness or death.

Some Anti-Vaxxers Aren't Getting Their Pets Vaccinated. Here's Why That's So Dangerous 

 

Dogs can’t get autism, and even if they could, vaccines couldn’t cause it. Period. But some anti-vaxxers are increasingly making the same unfounded claims about pets and vaccines they’ve been repeating about children and vaccines for the past 20 years: that vaccines are unnecessary, dangerous and that they can cause a form of (canine) autism, along with other diseases. Just as with kids, that may be driving down pet vaccination rates. And the movement, while niche, shows no sign of stopping; in some states in the U.S., anti-vax activists have recently agitated to make state laws about mandatory pet vaccinations more lax.

9 Things You’re Doing In Your Sleep That Signal A Bigger Health Problem 

 

Your body is pretty adept at telling you when something is up—sniffles when you're sick, a toothache when you have a cavity. But you might not catch those signals, say, while you're sleeping.

Your body does all kinds of cool things during your nightly slumber sessions, like regulating hormones and repairing muscles, per the National Sleep Foundation. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that sleep can also give you clues about what's wrong in your overall health.

“We look at ‘good’ sleep as being about both quality and quantity of sleep,” says Beena Jani, MD, family medicine physician at Summit Medical Group in New Jersey. “Getting insufficient sleep can lead to chronic medical conditions, but poor sleep hygiene can also be a sign of health conditions, too.”

I'm talking about conditions like anxiety, depression, asthma, and heart disease (yes, really). If you’re doing any of these nine things in your sleep, it's time to listen up—your body could be trying to tell you something.

Senators hear from Ohio teenager who rebelled against parents by getting vaccinated 

 

Ethan Lindenberger, an Ohio teenager who has spoken out about growing up in an anti-vaccine household, told a Senate committee Tuesday that misinformation and fear put children at risk.

(MORE: Low vaccination rates a big factor in ongoing measles outbreak)
Lindenberger, 18, said growing up he never received standard vaccines that protect against diseases like chickenpox, hepatitis, measles, mumps, polio or rubella. In his prepared testimony, the high school senior described debates he’d had with his mother, who he has described as an “anti-vaccine advocate.” But by the time he became a legal adult, he said, he had educated himself on the topic and decided to seek inoculations on his own.

"Anti-vaccine parents and individuals are in no way evil. With that said, I will state that certain individuals and organizations which spread misinformation and instill fear into the public for their own gain selfishly put countless people at risk," Lindenberger said in written testimony.

Of his mother, Lindenberger told the committee: "Her love, affection, and care as a parent was used to push an agenda to create a false distress."

Stroke recovery: Obesity may improve odds of survival, study finds 

 

When it comes to stroke, being very overweight may improve odds of survival, a new study suggests.

While obesity is clearly associated with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke, a new study reveals a counterintuitive result: Patients who were severely obese were 62 percent less likely to die in the first three months after a stroke compared to those of normal weight, according to a report presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology. In contrast, patients who were underweight were 67 percent more likely to die within three months of a stroke compared to those of normal weight.

Eating breakfast is not a good weight loss strategy, scientists confirm 

 

You probably feel guilty when you skip breakfast. Why wouldn’t you? Many of us grew up with parents fussing to make sure we had something in our bellies before we set off for school. Or we were brainwashed by TV commercial propaganda that promised eating cereal would make us lean and athletic, that breakfast keeps our metabolism on track and helps us avoid bingeing later.

It turns out the research on eating breakfast has been far, far less conclusive than either your mother or Tony the Tiger would have you believe. In fact, if you’ve been eating breakfast to stave off weight gain, researchers are increasingly learning that breakfast might have the opposite of the desired effect — it can promote more calorie consumption and weight gain. But even the best available studies in the mix have serious limitations.
