‘Hidden’ celiac disease less common now in U.S.
by Shereen Lehman
Fewer people in the U.S. have celiac disease without realizing it, a new study finds. The actual proportion of people with celiac disease in the United States has not changed since 2009, researchers say. “The total prevalence is stable,” Dr. Joseph Murray told Reuters Health in a phone interview. But there are fewer people walking around with “hidden” celiac disease. “When you look at the proportion that are diagnosed versus undiagnosed, that's gone up dramatically. Go back six years and most patients were undiagnosed, with only about one in five getting diagnosed,” said Murray, a gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota who was part of the study team.

The real brain food could be fresh veggies and olive oil, study finds
by Maggie Fox
People got points for light to moderate drinking — in this case about a third of drink a day to no more than three drinks a day on average for men and two for women. Dr. David Knopman, a professor of neurology at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota who was not involved in the study, said this could translate to real-life benefits. “Loss of brain volume is an inevitable part of the aging process,” Knopman told NBC News. “A bigger brain is in general better for you because at least in late life, it makes a person more resistant to the effects of brain diseases,” he added.

Florida Times-Union, Looking at possible compromises on Obamacare — As Americans look forward to another debate on universal health care, it’s time to admit just how complex this is. You can’t have it all: high quality, universal coverage and low cost. Something has to give. … The view of Mayo Clinic’s head, John Noseworthy, is that the Affordable Care Act was controlling costs by reducing choices and shifting costs to patients through higher co-pays and deductibles. In an interview with The Washington Post, Noseworthy said, “I think there is a tipping point being reached in the country, where people are realizing that year to year there are unsustainable increases in individual citizens’ premiums with no additional benefit to them. And they wonder what that’s all about. And they can’t pick their physician. And if they get really sick, they can’t go where they want to go.”

New York Times, 85-Year-Old Marathoner Is So Fast That Even Scientists Marvel by Jere Longman — Having set dozens of age-group records from the metric mile to the marathon, Whitlock remains at the forefront among older athletes who have led scientists to reassess the possibilities of aging and performance. “He’s about as close as you can get to minimal aging in a human individual,” said Dr. Michael Joyner, a researcher at the Mayo Clinic who has studied performance and aging.
CBC Radio, Is breaking the 2 hour barrier for running a marathon even possible? — … Dr. Michael Joyner has been at the forefront of research into the phsyiology of marathon runners. He's a researcher at the Mayo Clinic in the U.S. and his 1991 landmark paper was the first to suggest it might be possible for someone to run a marathon in under two hours — given optimum conditions. "What I did back in '91 is just simply say what would happen if one person had the best values for maximum oxygen consumption — something called the lactate threshold — and running efficiency and they were all rolled into one person and that's where I came up with my numbers."
The National, How science makes marathon runners move by Joseph Dana — In 1991, a polymatic anesthesiologist at the Mayo Clinic in the United States named Michael Joyner announced that the fastest time a human being could run a marathon was 01:57:58. In Joyner’s estimation, this time was the physiological limit a person could run 42.2 kilometres. The current fastest marathon time on an internationally recognised course is 02:02:57, run by Kenyan Dennis Kimetto at the Berlin marathon in 2014. As part of an ambitious new year’s resolution, Nike announced in December that it was assembling a team of athletes and sports scientists to attempt to break the two-hour mark in 2017. Capping a year of doping allegations, from the Russian Olympic team to tennis star Maria Sharapova, the global shoe manufacturer is joining rival shoe companies such as Adidas in throwing money and prestige at the goal of breaking a seemingly impossible sporting barrier.

The official cause of death has not yet been disclosed. “She wanted to be with Carrie,” her son Todd Fisher told Variety. “Grief is so complicated because there’s physiology, there’s self-care and then there are a lot of unknowns,” Dr. Sharonne Hayes, professor of medicine and cardiovascular diseases at the Mayo Clinic, told TODAY. “Medicine doesn’t entirely understand how grief and hope affect people’s life.” Additional Coverage: Vice, ATTN, WEAU

Might there be a general message here?

New Yorker, SILENT SPRING—III by Rachel Carson — Such world-famous institutions as the Mayo Clinic now admit hundreds of victims of blood and lymph diseases. In case after case, a fateful sequence of events is revealed in the patient’s recent history. Certain truths have become inescapably clear to Dr. Malcolm Hargraves, of the Hematology Department of the Mayo Clinic: in many cases, victims of leukemia, of a severe depression of the bone marrow called aplastic anemia, of Hodgkin’s disease, and of other disorders of the blood and blood-forming tissues have had a history of exposure to modern chemicals—among them paints, fuel oils, and various sprays containing DDT, chlordane, BHC, the nitrophenols, the common moth crystal paradichlorobenzene, lindane, and, of course, the liquids in which they were dissolved or suspended.
Boston Globe, Rolling the dice on a hepatitis C-tainted liver by Liz Kowalcyzk — Dr. Charles Rosen, head of transplantation at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, said there is a risk that a transplant recipient will contract hepatitis C and that the new drugs won’t cure it. It’s a dangerous illness that can cause cirrhosis and liver cancer. There is also the cost of the drugs — three months of treatment run $50,000 to $75,000. Mayo has plenty of patients on the liver transplant waiting list who have hepatitis C and need the expensive treatment for their disease anyway. Giving the drugs to a hepatitis C negative transplant recipient is an added cost. Still, he said, “It’s a very reasonable thing to do on a patient-by-patient situation.’’

That’s especially true for women, said Dr. Sharonne N. Hayes, a cardiologist and founder of the Women’s Health Clinic at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. “Many women, because of the focus on reproductive health, on breast health, on breast cancer, they think that’s their biggest risk, and that is their main focus on health prevention,” Hayes said.

She spoke to us for the first time saying, “I hope you do.” I knew at that moment that Watson and I were making a difference and were giving back what my daughter and I were given in the hospital so many years before.
