These data provide novel evidence that supports the recommendation of incorporating nuts into healthy dietary patterns for the prevention of cardiovascular disease complications and premature deaths among individuals with diabetes, said lead study author Gang Liu, a nutrition researcher at the Harvard T.H.
The study wasnt a controlled experiment designed to prove whether or how nuts might protect people with diabetes against heart disease.
In the study, researchers used self-reported diet questionnaires from 16,217 men and women before and after they were diagnosed with diabetes and asked them about their consumption of both peanuts and tree nuts over a period of several years.More on Diabetes

A diet with plenty of whole grains can decrease risk of liver cancer by nearly 40 percent, according to a new study published in JAMA Oncology on Thursday.
The study said that incorporating high levels of whole grains into a daily diet circumvents "insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, and inflammation," all hallmarks of HCC.
Over the course of about 24 years, the study's patients, mainly in their 50s and 60s, answered "food frequency questionnaires" using categories of whole grain and fiber intake ranging from "never or less than once per month" to "6 or more times per day."More on Liver Cancer

But a published review of outcomes for 624 women treated over 10 years at the Luts (lower urinary tract symptoms) clinic at Hornsey central health centre showed that they got better, just one had a serious side-effect and that there were no instances of antimicrobial resistance.
Instead of relying on culture tests, Malone-Lees lab developed a treatment regime informed by the patients symptoms and also the presence of white blood cells in the urine, which are normally indicative of an infection.
Nikesh Thiruchelvam, a consultant urologist also at Addenbrookes, has sent some of his patients to Malone-Lee.There are much more expensive but higher quality techniques for urine cultures that are not used in clinical practice, he says, describing the usual tests as outdated.More on Chronic Pain

A group of climate researchers, also at the University of Colorado Boulder, investigated, and discovered that these kidney disease epidemics were more likely to occur in places with rapidly rising temperatures, longer and more frequent heat waves, and less rainfall.
For the Girasoles (Sunflower) Study, published in May 2018 in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, McCauley of Emory and her co-authors looked at the hydration status and kidney function of 192 Florida agricultural workers, most of whom picked field crops and hailed from Mexico.

So all actors lucky enough to be in regular work will routinely find themselves in a doctors surgery several times a year having their abdomens palpated, blood pressure taken, and relevant bodily fluids drawn.
I wont suggest that interpersonal skills trump the astounding pharmaceutical, diagnostic, clinical, surgical, and nursing advances that science and technology have brought in, but empathy, information, disclosure, eye-contact, and a hand to the shoulder have been shown, as I am sure everyone reading this will be aware, to make a real, measurable difference to outcomes and recovery times.
Im not going to make a fool of myself by claiming an understanding of stress hormones and their role in this, but Ive spoken to enough surgeons and others to feel confident that the human contact side of my prostate cancer journey was a far from incidental part of the experience.More on Prostate Cancer
