Australian researchers : Peanut allergy treatment can last up to four years

A novel treatment which can help children overcome peanut allergies can provide relief from reactions for up to four years, Australian researchers say.

Professor Mimi Tang, from the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, developed a treatment where kids with peanut allergies were given a probiotic called lactobacillus rhamnosus, with a peanut protein, once a day for 18 months.

They found one month after stopping treatment, more than 80 per cent of children who received the protein and probiotic could tolerate peanuts without any allergic symptoms at the end of the trial. The same children were then tested four years later. Professor Tang said 70 per cent of the children were still able to eat peanuts without allergic reactions. "These findings suggest our treatment is effective in inducing long-term tolerance, up to four years after completing treatment and is safe," she said. "Two thirds of the treated participants were able to continue regular peanut ingestion and more than half were ingesting moderate-to-large amounts of peanuts on a regular basis." No worries over parties, sleepovers now One of those that successfully took part in the study is 10-year-old Olivia May.

She suffered an allergic reaction seven years ago while biting into a peanut butter sandwich. "We visited the allergist the first time [and] he said 'sorry, you're going to have to go home and empty your pantry out, clear it of all nuts, anything with nuts in it'," Olivia's mother Tanya May said. But today Olivia shows no signs of her allergy. "I think perhaps one of the best things has been to be able to just go to parties and I can drop her off or at a sleep over," Ms May said. "I used to hand over a EpiPen to a parent I'd hardly knew and give them a 30-second explanation how to use it. "[But] to not have to worry about putting that responsibility in someone else's hands is a great relief."

How does it work?

The idea behind the treatment is that the probiotic changes how the body's immune system responds to an allergen, in this case peanuts. "The probiotic acts on the immune system, encourages the immune system to generate a protective, or tolerance, response rather than allergy," Professor Tang said. "When given regularly over time, we hope to see the immune system recognise the antigen," she said.

What's the difference between an allergic reaction and anaphylaxis?

Food allergy occurs in about one in 20 children and in about two in 100 adults. According to the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy, the most common allergy triggers are egg, cow's milk, peanut, tree nuts, seafood, sesame, soy, fish and wheat. The majority of food allergies in children are not severe, and may be "outgrown" with time. But some, particularly peanut, tree nut, seed and seafood tend to be lifelong allergies. Some food allergies can be severe, causing a life-threatening reaction, known as anaphylaxis. Researchers from the Murdoch Children's Research Institute said larger studies of the probiotic peanut protein treatment were needed to assess long-term safety outcomes. It is also running a trial seeing whether children can overcome peanut allergies by simply taking the probiotic or whether the peanut protein is needed as well. The study was funded by the Murdoch Children's Research Institute and the Australian Food Allergy Foundation.

This Is How a Mumbai Social Enterprise Is Helping Dementia Patients Lead a Better Life

Dementia is one of the most common degenerative disorders in the world, which is mainly prevalent among the elderly. Such is its pervasiveness that you are likely to know someone who struggles with it. Dementia is the umbrella term for conditions leading to the decline of mental abilities, which are severe enough to hamper activities in everyday life. The symptoms of dementia are the gradual decrease in cognitive abilities, emotional problems, speech and language troubles, and a decrease in motivation. Though a person’s consciousness is usually unaffected, it is undoubtedly disabling for the diagnosed person, and often devastating for caregivers and families. According to a WHO report in 2015, it was estimated that 47.5 million people were living with dementia across the world. It’s said that one in 14 people over 65 has some form of dementia. Even more disheartening is that the risk of getting dementia doubles with the addition of every five years after 65. Since no cure has been found thus far, the primary importance is to improve the patient’s quality of life, and to reduce the overwhelming levels of stress for caregivers. This is done by support groups and dementia-friendly communities across the world. Echoing Healthy Ageing (EHA) was founded in 2012 by Amrita Patil Pimpale in Mumbai to help train caregivers and professionals working with geriatric patients who suffer from dementia.
Various home-based therapeutic activities for the elderly.
An engineer with a management degree, Amrita had no experience in the field. “During Masters in the UK, I worked as a project manager under a care improvement home that got me interested in geriatric care and dementia,” says Amrita. On interacting with many patients, Amrita began to realise her grandmother’s condition had a striking resemblance to those who suffered with dementia. And on further investigation, her suspicions were proven true. “But there was nothing any of us could do. Since it was a time when dementia wasn’t very well recognized, she never had the advantage of a diagnosis”, she recalls. This pushed Amrita to researching dementia care. Realising how neglected patients in India were, Amrita decided to move back to Mumbai and start her own venture that tackled the issue. “For the first year, it was just me who was moving about raising awareness among people over dementia care, which I ended up finding was quite limited. Soon, EHA was approached by UnLtd India that quite literally raised the mast for the organisation’s sail”, she remembers. The organisation’s workforce includes a small team comprising of well-trained social workers and a clinical psychiatric consultant who have trained over 1000 caregivers and professionals. They have also worked with many hospitals where training programmes and workshops were conducted for nurses. Offering counselling for the family caregivers, EHA helps them get a clear sense of what the future could be like for the patient and what they need to prepare for. They also offer care courses for family members or the recruited caregiver. “While constant caregiving can at times get overwhelming, our trained professionals come in and spend time with the patient a few times a week, engaging the patient in art, music or reminiscence therapies that could reduce anxieties of the patients; giving the primary carer a few hours’ respite,” Amrita explains. EHA has also partnered with Holy Family hospital in Bandra where the support-group meets for the family members and caregivers are organised every month. Currently working as consultants with 2 care homes in the city, EHA has also partnered with a rehabilitation centre where they can lend their technical knowledge and assistance towards caring for the elderly. With the month of September being commemorated as world Alzheimer’s month, EHA is on a mission of creating 500 dementia champions who could raise awareness over dementia care practices and help create a dementia friendly community.

For Those who’ll Never Quit the Harmful Habit : These Tobacco Filters Grow into Plants When Littered

For Those who’ll Never Quit the Harmful Habit : These Tobacco Filters Grow into Plants When Littered

While smoking rates are on the decline in some countries, there will always be those who’ll never quit the harmful habit—and cigarette butts will likely remain an eyesore, littering the world. That’s why this company is trying to minimize the negative effects of smoking by selling biodegradable filter tips that plant seeds, instead of creating litter. Karma Tips was created by ex-advertising representatives Chetana and Ved Roy of Bengaluru, India. Ved first got the idea for Karma Tips when he was working with a tobacco company and he learned about the list of chemicals found in commercial cigarette papers. The couple, who has worked for dozens of corporate giants in the past, quit their jobs so they could pursue creating low-impact cigarette materials. Their handmade filters are 100% organic, biodegradable, and non-addictive, and are sold alongside a similarly improved book of rolling papers. When disposed of, the butt degrades in a matter of days and gives root to basil, New Zealand lawn grass, rosemary, or thyme. In addition to being better for the environment, the filters are healthier for the smoker, because they are not exposed to the chemical-infused paper used by larger tobacco companies. The Roys also employ roughly two dozen employees – most of which are women – from local villages to help make, package, and distribute Karma Tips. All the packaging used for the products are created locally, thus stimulating small village economies. “The bags that contain the products are handwoven by a community of local weavers, using organic cotton and locally grown raw material. Even the ink we use for printing is food-grade, non-toxic, and made locally. These small initiatives go a long way in involving local and rural communities in the business, thereby helping them prosper,”  said Ved .“After all, any business that makes only money, we believe, is a bad business.”

This is how ‘clean eating’ can damage children’s health

This is how ‘clean eating’ can damage children’s health

Clean eating seems ideal for parents who want to establish their children’s healthy habits early on. It’s no surprise really: “clean eating” is the perfect buzz term for parents who are faced with supermarket shelves full of baby and toddler food which is high in sugar content and low in nutritional value. But while some clean eating plans are focused on a balanced diet – with less processed and more whole foods – others are extreme. Some advise cutting out things such as gluten, or whole food groups, such as grains and dairy – all the while advising us to consume so-called “super-foods” to maximise health and well-being. There’s a reason why it’s called a “balanced” diet, and subscribing to any extreme nutritional plan can adversely affect child health on multiple levels. Excluding major food groups from our diet at any age can lead not only to inadequate calorie intake, but potentially malnutrition, and deficiencies in minerals and vitamins. Food groups Gluten – a protein found in cereals like wheat, rye and barely – appears to be one of the main targets for clean eating plans. Although some people will have the clinical condition coeliac disease, which means their body has an inflammatory reaction to gluten, most people have no problems processing it. Cereal products are recommended as one of the fundamental bases of a healthy diet by world leading health and nutrition organisations such as Public Health England, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), and are a staple food in the Mediterranean diet. They contain the carbohydrates the human body needs to function, and so depriving constantly moving babies, toddlers and children from the main fuel for their muscles and brain can only delay their development. In addition to advocating that gluten should be cut, the extreme “clean eating” philosophy is that not all carbohydrates are created equal – even if it’s exactly the same molecules at the base of them. People are led to believe that refined sugar is the ultimate evil, a poison that will sabotage their health. Yet, they are happy to consume a “green” or “protein” smoothie that contains as much sugar as a can of fizzy drink without a whiff of guilt. On the contrary, they feel they are doing something good for themselves and their kids, giving their bodies a boost of nutrients and even getting some veggie goodness into them. Similarly, a cake recipe that features agave syrup, honey or coconut sugar instead of refined sugar is marketed as a “healthy alternative” or a “guilt free” treat. Some clean eating plans also advocate eliminating dairy products from the diet despite them actually being the most efficient natural source of calcium. A cup of milk or yogurt, or a slice of cheese, can contain anything from 300-400mg of calcium, while a typical serving of non-dairy sources – except for small fish eaten with their bones – does not tend to contain even 100mg, and usually falls well under that. The average adult needs about 1,000mg of calcium per day. Children go through several growth spurts until adulthood and their needs are even higher – teenagers require 1,300mg, for example. If not carefully designed, a non-dairy diet can delay children’s growth and impact on future bone strength. At the same time, many of the promoted superfoods, such as kale, beetroot and chia seeds, for example, can be potentially unsuitable for younger kids. Kale and beetroot are naturally high in nitrates that can be toxic for younger babies, while chia seeds swell up in the stomach filling the space for nutrient dense foods, and potentially causing upset tummies. Healthy attitudes In addition to physical effects, imposing a clean eating diet may change a child’s attitudes to food, too. It is well established that the most effective way to create or increase desire is to restrict access. Younger toddlers, who are unaware of the existence of the “forbidden fruit” will not ask for it. But when the restriction is lifted and children taste the “new” palatable foods, they are unequipped to manage their natural desire for it. Healthy eating should not only be about promoting foods that sustain physical health, but also behaviours that sustain a healthier relationship with food. What this whole trend of clean eating is missing is that food is more than a fuel for our body. It’s also centuries of culture, and ignores how people connect over a meal and enjoy it. Ultimately, helping a child to be happy and healthy isn’t about being “clean” or “dirty”, it is about teaching them to enjoy nutritional foods, and to be aware of what makes up a balanced diet.

Excessive Worrying Can Result in Severe Paranoia . Also Learn more on Foods that are good to Beat stress

Find yourself stressing over the minutest of things? Do these stress bouts affect your ability to think and function beyond a point? It's time to calm your nerves. Overthinking and stressing may take you a step closer to paranoia. Paranoia is a severe mental condition, which is characterised by delusions of an exaggerated impending crisis. According to a recent study, excessive stress makes people sense danger in harmless situations. In the fast-paced urban scenario, overthinking and stressing have become inevitable. As an instinct humans tend to identify dangerous scenarios, for which they arm themselves mentally as a mode of self-defense. However, at times people can misidentify such cues, and fret over what could be possibly not a critical situation. Researchers from Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin, New York University and McGill University, whose research appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, revealed that when older memories are coupled with stress, people are likely to perceive danger in harmless situations and this repeated and excessive bout of stress may lead to increased risk for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a disorder which causes inability to discriminate threat from safety. Researchers also noted that the data helps one understand why PTSD symptoms are often aggravated during times of stress. And how fear generalising could be a core factor behind anxiety and stress-related disorders. Human beings take cues to defend themselves from adverse situation, These cues could be based on past situations or hearsay. But sometimes the cues could be wrong, and lead to unnecessary stress building. The findings indicated that stress levels, and the amount of time since an hostile event tends to promote this type of overgeneralization, which could be dangerous to the mind. For the study the team tested the effects of stress and time on a person's ability to correctly identify a cue associated with a negative outcome. During the study, individuals were made to hear two tones, with one followed by a shock, set by the participant at the range of the 'highly annoying but not painful'. The researchers then played the tones in the range of the two frequencies and gauged participants' expectations of shock by their self-report and the data based on skin responses indicating emotional arousal. One of the groups took the shock expectancy test immediately after the initial shock. This was followed by the second group who took the test 24 hours after the initial shock. Both groups were made to undergo the stress/control priming activity just before the shock expectancy test. The data could be a fruitful intervention in medical care of people with in-congruent patterns of fear and anxiety. Stress can prove to be hazardous even for your overall health and heart in the long run. You can load up on these foods to beat stress - 1.Oats: Oat meal boosts positive energy as it is considered to be a serotonin enhancer, a chemical that can induce much needed calm and happiness in the stress bouts. 2.Lentils: Lentils are packed with all types of Vitamin B, nature's own happy pill. It helps reduce tiredness and fatigue. Lentils also stabilise the blood sugar and fire-up your energy levels. 3.Banana: Bananas are rich in Vitamin C which works wonders to fight stress. It helps repair cell damage caused due to stress. Also, the potassium that it contains helps in maintaining healthy heart muscles. 4.Yogurt: Yogurt is packed with calcium which is a great source of slashing stress. It also has good bacteria that kill anxiety and depression. So don't forget to add more yogurt to your diet. 5.Coconut: Coconut contains medium chain fats that improve our mental health and infuse positivity. The scent of the coconut is known to have a psychological effect that helps reduce anxiety and slows out heart rate.

A Study reveals Smokers feel more gloomy and overeat

Over 65% of smokers surveyed for a national study had high blood pressure while four out of five had higher levels of carbon monoxide (CO) as compared to non-smokers. In Mumbai, the survey found that smokers were almost twice as likely to feel gloomy or distraught in comparison to non-smokers. "Smokers in Mumbai were five times more likely to be overeating or under-eating in comparison to non-smokers," according to the Choose Life survey, conducted by various chest specialists across the country.
The survey also found that "hypersensitive behaviour" was 200% higher among smokers. Funded by a pharmaceutical company, it said mental stress was 178% higher among smokers compared to non-smokers. Also, 25% smokers complained of broken sleep in comparison to 3% non-smokers. "Around 63% smokers confessed they had mood swings in comparison to 26% non-smokers. Moreover, complaints of headaches, sore eyes were more common among smokers (77% ) than non-smokers (47%)," it stated.

Did You Eat Too Much Sugar? 9 Tricks to Help Reverse the Binge

Did You Eat Too Much Sugar? 9 Tricks to Help Reverse the Binge

Step 1: Realize what's going on

One moment you're wired; the next, you're making a beeline to the couch. What gives? Your body goes on a physical and emotional roller coaster after too many sweets. "The minute you put a sweet in your mouth, you get a surge of dopamine, a feel-good hormone with addictive properties," says Amanda Bontempo, RD, a nutritionist at NYU Langone's Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center. As sugar floods your bloodstream, the pancreas releases insulin to control blood glucose levels. This suppresses the "fullness" hormone leptin, which makes your brain give you the green light to grab more candy. Glucose is rapidly digested, and your spiked dopamine and blood sugar levels fall quickly. "The crash depends on the person. It can be 15 minutes to a couple of hours after eating," says Bontempo. "Your instinct is to eat more sugar to get another jolt of energy, but it's really important to resist. Once your willpower bank is tapped, it becomes increasingly challenging to make healthy choices." These foods have way more sugar than you realized.

Step 2: Have a spoonful of peanut butter

After a sugar binge, you may want to swear off all calories. However, eating food with other nutrients helps ward off that undesirable sugar crash caused by quick digestion. "A spoonful of peanut butter or handful of nuts gives you fat and protein to slow digestion," says Jennifer Powell Weddig, PhD, RDN, a professor of nutrition at Metropolitan State University of Denver. "Or try hummus with vegetables, which have fiber that helps slow the absorption of simple sugars." Start adopting these habits to kick your sugar cravings for good.

Step 3: Take the stairs

Resist the temptation to nap. "Get moving," says Bontempo. "This will help your muscles use the blood sugar instead of just storing it." It doesn't have to be a sweaty, hour-long cycling class. Simply walking up the stairs or taking a walk around the block will help. A study in the journal Diabetes Care found that older adults who walked for 15 minutes after each meal had lower blood sugar levels than those who walked for 45 minutes in the late morning or before dinner.

Step 4: Drink tea with lemon

Green tea and lemon are both diuretics, which means they'll make you take more bathroom breaks. "You're not directly eliminating the sugar, but you are forcing your blood to pump through your kidneys faster," says Bontempo. Remember to also stay well-hydrated with H20, which helps you feel full, and counteracts suppressed leptin levels.

Step 5: Plan tomorrow's breakfast

A low-sugar, balanced breakfast is imperative the day after a sugar overload. "The ideal breakfast is high in protein, moderate in fat, and low in carbs," says Bontempo. "The protein and fat keep you full, and fewer carbs encourage you to burn yesterday's stored-up sugar energy." Try a vegetable omelet with a slice of whole-grain toast, topped with avocado slices. Go light on the fruit; it may be the natural kind, but it still has sugar. (Check out these high-protein breakfast ideas.) Another tip nutritionists stress: Don't go overboard on coffee. "It's a no-calorie drink, but we often add a lot of creams and sugars to it," says Jason Ewoldt, MS, RDN, a wellness dietitian the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program. "What starts off as a 0-calorie option turns into several teaspoons of sugar before you even start the day." Consider tea or have coffee with just a dash of cream.

Step 6: Put the kibosh on condiments

Dressings, sauces, and other condiments may hinder your healthy-eating efforts. One tablespoon of ketchup, for example, has 4 grams (1 teaspoon) of sugar. "Many condiments can be high in sugar, but it's tricky because there are essentially more than 60 different names for sugar," says Ewoldt. "When you're looking at the label, it might not say sugar, but it could say high fructose corn syrup, dextrose, rice syrup, or molasses, which are all essentially sugar." Drizzle leafy greens with olive oil or spread avocado on a turkey burger. These 16 condiments are secret health bombs.

Step 7: Have a smoothie

Blend a veggie-rich smoothie the day after a binge for satiating fiber, but go easy on the fruit and juice. "It's easy to drink way too much sugar," says Bontempo. "It may come from the fruit and be natural sugar, but you still might drink way more than you'd ever eat." Mix one part fruit to two parts vegetables, like spinach or kale. Add protein, such as unsweetened yogurt or nut butter. Skip a juice base, and instead use unsweetened soymilk, unsweetened almond milk, or unsweetened green tea (it's flavorless in a smoothie, but sneaks in healthy antioxidants). Try these tricks to make a healthy smoothie that's not a total sugar bomb.

Step 8: Banish the leftovers

Your brain may still be craving that dopamine rush, so remove any temptation. "Get rid of the candy," says Bontempo. "Donate it or bring it to work." In an International Journal of Obesitystudy of 100 participants, researchers found that those who kept food in plain sight were more likely to be obese and ate more sugar and less healthy food than participants with a normal weight.

Step 9: Forget the guilt trip

Take a deep breath and go easy on yourself. "Conventional research tells us it takes about 3,500 calories to gain a pound of fat," says Bontempo. "That's the equivalent of about 44 Fun Size Snickers bars, or nearly 60 Fun Size Skittles bags. Even if you ate a lot of candy, it doesn't directly translate into weight gain." The next time you have a treat, practice savoring and enjoying it. A New Zealand study of 300 people found that people who associate eating chocolate cake with guilt were less successful in maintaining their weight compared with those who viewed it as a celebration. "A Hershey's kiss takes forever to melt in your mouth, and it’s a lot of chocolate," says Weddig. "Being mindful and eating things like that provides a lot more satisfaction than just chewing it once or twice and then swallowing."

An app which can predict disease risk based on health inputs

A new smartphone app, developed by a Gurgaon-based start-up, can provide 'smart reports' that may predict the user's risk of diseases and expose hidden disorders based on their symptoms and lifestyle inputs. The app, called Healthians, allows users to log their basic body vitals like blood pressure, weight and sugar levels as well as maintain a depository of all their test reports for future reference. The app then analyses the data for abnormal parameters, and recommends the future course of required action, including suitable medical specialist to consult and additional tests, if needed. "With pathology checkups, understanding a medical report and its implications on one's health has always been a challenge," said Deepak Sahni, CEO and Founder of Healthians.
"With the Healthians app, this difficulty is addressed and people can now at a click of a button get deep insights into their health," said Sahni. The smart report feature helps uncover latent diseases and predict risk of future ones and to expose any latent ones. It recommends lifestyle and dietary changes based on the user's investigations, symptoms and lifestyle inputs. Patients will be able to review their medical conditions and reach their treatment goals much faster,dramatically lowering the risks of serious health complications.
"The smart report is meant to empower users with a fore- knowledge of possible health risks and to effectively manage chronic diseases," said Sahni."Any decision regarding our health is best taken in an informed manner. Healthians app is exactly that channel of reliable information," he added. Diseases are predicted based on the patients' health check-up report values of different parameters along with their age, lifestyle habits, symptoms and family medical history, Sahni said. Along with symptoms we take lifestyle habits, age, gender and patients medical history into account to eliminate the chances of making a wrong diagnosis, he said.
To ensure any such misinterpretations, free doctor and dietitian consultation is provided. We give a clear disclaimer to the user that these are system generated recommendations only. For an accurate diagnosis, user is encouraged to visit a particular specialist.
