(American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev) The study, published in the online journal Science of the Total Environment (Elsevier), determined that there was no additional incidence of gastroenteritis or water-related diseases caused by use of treated greywater in gardens, even when compared to tap water and other irrigation water sources. In fact, the rate of illnesses was found to be lower with the treated greywater than from the control group at times. (Source: EurekAlert! - Infectious and Emerging Diseases)

The Fruit that Naturally Reverses Diabetes
Mainstream medicine wants you to believe the only thing you can do about diabetes is take Big Pharma’s pills or insulin shots for the rest of your life. Even if you’re not diabetic, all those carbs in your diet — cereal, pasta, potatoes, bread and sugary drinks — means your body is getting a dangerous overload of sugar. And it may be just a matter of time, before you become a statistic in America’s fastest growing health epidemic. For decades, I’ve been helping my patients not just manage their diabetes symptoms, also to reverse it for good. And I’ve also been helping them to prevent diabetes in the first pla...

Are Wi-Fi Allergies Real?
For some time now, people with unexplained and recurring headaches, dizziness and skin irritation have been blaming their often severe discomfort on sensitivity to electromagnetic field sources, a condition sometimes called electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), according to the World Health Organization (WHO). In a recent case, the family of a 15-year-old girl in the United Kingdom who died by suicide said the girl had suffered from an allergy to Wi-Fi signals. The signals at her school made her nauseated, gave her blinding headaches and made it difficult for her to concentrate, the teen's mother said in a U.K. cour...

'Is Mommy Okay?'
"Is Mommy okay?" The words always came out as a whisper. Maybe I didn't want to wake my little brother, maybe because it was late in the night and that is just what people do, or maybe I was scared of the answer. A few minutes before I nervously asked my question, I had been awakened by the sound of a low moan. Most children would conjure up ghosts in their closets or a monster under their bed, but I knew exactly what it was; I tiptoed past my sleeping brother,and hurried to my parents' room. I lightly placed my hand on their door and slowly pushed it open, the fear rising in my chest. I would not step into their room....

6 Healthy Habits That You Might Be Overdoing
SPECIAL FROM Next Avenue By Linda Melone Taking any action to an extreme — even a healthy one — can have negative consequences.   Striving to lose weight becomes unhealthy if it turns into an eating disorder, for example. Exercising until you develop an injury or a serious health issue such as rhabdomyolysis (when muscle tissue breaks down and releases into the blood) can be life-threatening. Other, less extreme, examples can also work against your goal of creating healthier habits and a healthy body. Here are six ways that common, good practices can sometimes work against you: 1.

In Europe, rotavirus and noroviruses are two of the most frequent viral agents causing AGE and Campylobacter and Salmonella are the most common bacterial AGE causes.

Scared Sick: Living With Emetophobia
I'm approaching the age of 30. I have a fiancé, a dog, a growing career, a passport full of stamps and a healthy social life. Oh, and I have emetophobia. My emetophobia, which is a fear of vomit, often feels like it controls my life. Phobias affect 8.7 percent of people in America, and here in Australia, figures are similar. I'm one of the ones who drew the short straw. My fiancé and best friends fall in the lucky group -- they are part of the majority who don't suffer with a debilitating disorder. They are sympathetic to my irrational fears, but they can't empathize because try as they might, they don't understand wh...

3 Ways to Rediscover Your Resilience When You're Tapped Out
If there's one thing we believe, it's this: You can't annihilate stress; it's simply part of life. What you can do is shift your response to stress, and through that process, build up resilience to it. But I think we can take it one step further. What if stress isn't just an ill to manage, but something with a big upside? What if the experiences that cause you the most stress are actually your biggest opportunity to develop the innate resilience that makes you terrifically strong? Here's an example.

It didn’t even cross my mind that he was having a seizure.” But Sammy had recently been falling a lot. The neurologist in the local emergency room in Albany, N.Y. diagnosed epilepsy, but thought it was a relatively benign form that medications could help. Instead, Sammy got worse. ...

Peanut butter for non-allergic babies may reduce later allergies
Conclusion This well-designed randomised controlled trial has found that the early introduction of regular small amounts of peanut protein to infants at high risk of having allergies reduced the proportion who developed a peanut allergy by age five, compared to avoiding peanuts completely. The study looked at a group of infants who were at a particularly high risk of going on to develop food allergies, because they already had severe eczema or an allergy to eggs, or both. It is important to know that this study was not about treating infants or children who already had a peanut allergy. Those who showed a strong reaction ...

Didn't You Hear? There Is a 'Cure' for Peanut Allergies
I woke up this morning to at least 10 emails from well-intentioned friends and family telling me, in not so many words, "Probiotics cure peanut allergies. Quick, run out now and buy them." Being a food allergy advocate, I had already read the study to which they were referring. While I found it interesting and believe it may add a valuable piece to the puzzle that is food allergies, it was so very far from what the headline screamed. What the conclusion of this small study, with no long-term data, was in my humble opinion is that adding a probiotic to traditional OIT (oral immunotherapy -- which is when the patient is fed...

What Are the Advantages of Human Donor Breastmilk?
Discussion Premature infants have unique needs and risks because of their prematurity. Adequate nutrition is one of those problems. In utero the fetus is basically able to “take” everything it needs from the mother already in usable form via the blood stream. In the world, the infant needs to have a neurological and oral-motor apparatus that can coordinate an adequate suck and swallow, and a gastrointestinal tract that is able to absorb the nutrients. The premature infant also needs water, protein, fat, carbohydrates, and macro- and micro-nutrients that are appropriate for its gestational age and changing needs...

ConclusionThis economic model estimates that increasing the number of women who start and continue to breastfeed would save the NHS tens of millions of pounds. These savings would come through reduced incidence of three infectious diseases that occur in infancy, reducing the number of newborns who have necrotising enterocolitis, and reducing the incidence of maternal breast cancer, all of which are beneficial to the health of mother and baby.But these savings, as with all economic models, have been calculated using a number of assumptions, including the estimated rate of breastfeeding in the UK, which was taken from 2005 f...

Currently, there are over 30 recognized or reputed bacterial agents that are regarded as causes of gastroenteritis.

However, three newer bacterial agents, Providencia alcalifaciens, Escherichia albertii, and Klebsiella oxytoca, are worthy of attention and consideration because of their ability to cause diarrhea and outbreaks of infection. In addition, these three bacterial agents possess virulence factors that can produce severe disease. (Source: Clinical Microbiology Newsletter)
