What Science Tells Us Can Affect Our Risk Of Alzheimer's Disease
by Alice G. Walton

…But it’s not clear whether single components of the diet are enough to affect Alzheimer’s risk. I think the diet fads of blueberries, broccoli, coffee are all nonsense,” says David S. Knopman, researchForbes Pharma and Healthcare logoer at the Mayo Clinic. “No one eats food in isolation, and trying to disentangle associations between foods, especially when all the data is observational, is a hopeless and useless task.”

During the recent political debate over whether to repeal the federal excise tax on medical devices, manufacturers claimed part of the reason it was a bad policy is that it stifled research and development innovation. Now that the tax has been suspendedTwin Cities Business Magazine Logo for two years, Boston Scientific and Mayo Clinic say they’ve been freed to greatly expand a unique R&D collaboration. In December, device makers celebrated when the tax was suspended for two years, and last week Boston Scientific -- which employs about 5,000 people in Minnesota – announced it was using some of savings to ramp up a previously unrevealed scientific research collaboration with the Mayo Clinic.

Wall Street Journal — New Migraine Drugs Are on the Horizon by Jonathan Rockoff — Researchers are unlocking some of the mysteries surrounding migraines, raising hopes for a new class of treatments. “Finally a new era seems to be emerging,” says David Dodick, director of the migraine program at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona, president of the International Headache Society and chairman of the American Migraine Foundation. “We know enough about the biology and what’s happening in the brain during an attack that some new medicines are being specifically developed for migraines,” Dr. Dodick says.

US News & World Report — Less Than 3 Percent of Americans Live a Healthy Lifestyle —  Do you get a moderate amount of exercise, eat right, keep from piling on fat and avoid smoking? Congratulations, you're among the 2.7 percent of Americans who do so, according to a new study. The study looked at data on more than 4,700 people who took part in the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Survey.

New York Times — How a Fitbit May Make You a Bit Fit by Alex Hutchinson — The ultracompact, platform-agnostic, user-configurable mobile fitness device that Dr. Michael Joyner showed off at a recent sports technology conference caused a stir. The attendees had gathered to ponder the future of high-tech performance enhancement. Dr. Joyner, an expert in human physiology at the Mayo Clinic, had a jump rope. Of course, like any megatrend, the rise of mobile fitness gadgetry has inspired its share of contrarian views. Dr. Joyner’s jump rope was a reminder that the fundamentals of getting fit remain simple — a message he proffers “whenever people start going off the gizmo ledge.”

New York Times — The N.F.L. Comes Clean on Concussions — Hundreds of thousands of teenagers and younger players will take to the field this year, amid growing evidence that concussions can eventually cause behavior disorders and leave scars on the brain that are evidence of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or C.T.E...A Mayo Clinic study last fall found C.T.E. in the brains of 21 of 66 men who played contact sports — mostly football — but no traces of the disease in 198 others who did not play contact games.

The Atlantic — Less Than 3 Percent of Americans Live a ‘Healthy Lifestyle’ by Julie Beck — The average American man has a body mass index just barely under the medical definition of obese.

Forbes — 3 Ways To Avoid Entrepreneurial Burnout by Chris Myers — Entrepreneurship is a long and often treacherous journey, and it’s easy to encounter periods of burnout along the way. According to the Mayo Clinic, job burnout is defined as “a special type of job stress — a state of physical, emotional or mental exhaustion combined with doubts about your competence and the value of your work.”

Forbes — NFL's Concussion Statements Undermined By Medical Research by Ron Katz — Looking for medical advice on this issue beyond that offered by the NFL, I came across a little-publicized Mayo Clinic study from December, 2015. This was much more sobering than even the pre-retraction NFL congressional testimony. It was a study of 1,721 donors to the Mayo Clinic Brain Bank in Jacksonville, Florida. Of these 1,721 donors, 66 males had documented participation in contact sports. Of those 66, 21 (approximately one-third) had mild to severe CTE.

STAT — The science behind the infrared saunas sweeping Hollywood by Megan Thielking — The latest health trend to hit the celebrity circuit: infrared saunas that claim to treat cancer, cure paralysis, and, of course, provide a little stress relief. There are some quite small, preliminary studies that show infrared light therapy or saunas could be associated with lowering blood pressure, easing muscle pain, and generally boosting quality of life. That makes sense, because if a sauna relaxes you, it could reduce stress on your body — which, in turn, could improve your overall health, said Dr. Brent Bauer, director of the complementary and integrative medicine program at the Mayo Clinic.

SHAPE magazine — The Health Benefits of Kimchi by Moira Lawler — For all of its health benefits, kimchi is high in sodium. People who watch their salt intake or have high blood pressure shouldn't aimlessly dig in, says Lisa Dierks, R.D., L.D.N., wellness dietitian at the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program.

SHAPE magazine — The Health Benefits of Moringa by Moira Lawler — The proper name, moringa oleifera, refers to a plant native to dry, tropical climates, says Lisa Dierks, R.D., a wellness dietitian at the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program. Because the plant is resistant to drought and easy to cultivate, research is ongoing as to how the plant may help alleviate malnutrition in certain areas of the world," says Dierks.

Robb Report — Leading Experts Offer Advice for Staying Fit while Traveling by Janice O’Leary — Investigate airports ahead of time if you are flying commercial.

Arrive early to relieve stress and get your workout in all at once.

FOX News — Women outlive men but suffer long years of disability — It's possible, though, that the same heartiness that makes women live longer than men also contributes to their greater propensity toward disability in their later years, said Dr. James Kirkland, director of the Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging at the Mayo Clinic. "Women are biologically more hearty than men so instead of dying from a heart attack or something like that they recover, but they recover disabled," said Kirkland, who wasn't involved in the study.

FOX News — 'Smart' sock track baby's health at night — Owlet is a “smart” sock that tracks a baby’s vital signs during sleep and is designed to alert parents if the infant stops breathing. The sock monitors the baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels using pulse oximetry, a non-invasive method, and connects via Bluetooth to a base station and app. Owlet received a $1.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for development and research, and was included in an exclusive two-week program with the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Innovation.

Huffington Post — Here’s Proof Mental Illness Is Not Someone’s Fault by Lindsay Holmes — People with paralyzing phobias, like a fear of flying or even a fear of social interactions, may have them due to an overactive amygdala, the region of the brain responsible for emotional responses. Individuals with an overactive amygdala also experience a heightened fear response, which can lead to increased anxiety in particular situations, according to the Mayo Clinic.

The Advisory Board Company — Mayo Clinic study: One-third of medical students misuse alcohol — Mayo Clinic researchers surveyed over 4,000 medical school students. About 1,400—roughly 35 percent—reported that they experienced clinical alcohol misuse or suffered from alcohol dependence.

CBS Philly — Researchers: Vegan Diet May Lack Vital Nutrient Intake — Researchers at the Mayo Clinic say vegans may be low on certain important nutrients. “We found that some of these nutrients, which can have implications in neurologic disorders, anemia, bone strength and other health concerns, can be deficient in poorly planned vegan diets,” says Heather Fields, M.D., Community and Internal Medicine at Mayo Clinic.

The Guardian — Could sourdough bread be the answer to the gluten sensitivity epidemic? by Olga Oksman — For those with true celiac disease, it is too soon to extrapolate the findings of a small study to changes in diet, cautions Joseph Murray, professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic. “It may provide options for celiacs in the future,” says Murray, adding that he is not hopeful because of the safety margins needed. Just baking sourdough would not be enough. For the bread to be an option, there would have to be a way to work out the baking process so that the gluten is guaranteed to have uniformly degraded to the point where the bread could be tolerated in each batch.

Good Housekeeping — 8 signs you’re emotionally detached from your marriage — 5. You assume he's going to be there forever…Instead, Dr. Anjali Bhagra, associate professor of medicine at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, suggests the two-and-two rule. 'Practice two minutes of early morning gratitude, thinking about (and maybe even telling him) what you appreciate, and then don't critique anything about him in the first two minutes you see him in the evening (no "your shirt would look better tucked in" remarks),' she says. It'll create a closer connection between the two of you, she says, because just like mum always said — it's the thought that counts.

MPR — Lawmaker: 'Aid in dying' bill gives patients alternative by Riham Feshir — Some said palliative care, which is what patients receive near the end of life, needs attention in Minnesota. "If giving me and other physicians the authority to end my patient's life represented some resemblance of improved care, I would support this," said Dr. Cory Ingram, a palliative care specialist with the Mayo Clinic. "In reality, giving doctors the authority to write lethal prescriptions represents the raising of the white flags of surrender over the communities of Minnesota, (saying) 'We give up.'"

Modern Healthcare — The Hallmarks of Greatness — Dr. Henry Plummer would have been chosen for inclusion in the Hall of Fame long ago if it had an old-timers committee. Though the Mayo Clinic pioneer passed away in 1936 at age 62, nothing could be more modern than his invention of the consolidated medical record, bringing together in one place (on paper in those days) all the necessary data for physicians to treat patients, whether in their hospital beds, clinics or offices. No wonder Mayo's current revamp of its electronic health record system is called the Plummer Project.

WPSD-TV Kentucky — State health officials encourage schools to adopt tobacco-free policy by Brianna Clark — Richard Hurt, emeritus director of the Nicotine Dependence Center at the Mayo Clinic, says it's up to teachers and staff to set a good example for students. "The last thing to develop is the front part of the brain, which is where judgment is located," says Hurt. "So when a 13 or 14 year old experiments with smoking, they're missing that element of their brain function." "Youth who see teens or adults smoking in public places see smoking as acceptable," says Hoagland. "It seems like an acceptable normal thing to do."

News@Northeastern — Northeastern researchers work to stop sudden cardiac death among young athletes by Thea Singer — “The screening pro­posed by Dr. Corrado is quick and has the potential to prevent an athlete with a heart abnormality from dying while exercising,” says Jonathan Finnoff, medical director of the Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and a team physi­cian for the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx. “Although further research is required, performing it during the pre-​​participation physical exam may enable physicians to correctly identify structural abnormaities of the heart, helping to lower the risk of SCD and the need for unnecessary tests.”

WEAU Eau Claire — Walker signs series of bills to curb opiate abuse — Gov. Scott Walker signed into law a bipartisan-approved set of bills that addresses heroin and opiate addiction in Wisconsin. The heroin and opiate prevention and education bill was signed Thursday at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire.

Cannon Falls Beacon — ZipRail questions remain unanswered by Sandy Hadler — Both Arndt and anti- Zip Rail activist Nora Felton said that statement was disingenuous. Arndt noted that Mayo created the Facebook page for the Zip Rail project. She admitted that Mayo has backed off from its initial involvement, and no one knows why. But Felton pointed out that Nora O'Sullivan, Marketing Consultant for Mayo Clinic, and Tim Geisler, who had been involved as their representative on the Southeastern MN Rail Alliance before retiring, have sent out e-mails that prove Mayo was/is still involved with the project.
