@sujit For individuals who consume starchy vegetables, such as corn, potatoes, and yams, sufficient consumption of non-starchy legumes, fruits, and vegetables was associated with a reduction in the risk for colorectal cancer. These results add to the existing evidence on the potential role of limiting alcohol intake and increasing the intake of plant foods in influencing cancer risk. Therefore, based on these results, dietary advice on cancer should focus on encouraging the consumption of a plant-based diet providing abundant nonstarchy fruits, vegetables, and legumes, and restricting alcohol, if consumed at all, to the recommended levels

RE: Studies Reaffirm That Healthy Behaviors Can Cut Cancer Risk
Placebo Response in Neuropathic Pain Trials!
Both placebo and nocebo effects can greatly affect the interpretation of outcomes in randomized controlled trials of chronic neuropathic pain treatments. When trials are being designed and interpreted, these effects need to be considered so that safety and efficacy can be better determined. Clinicians who are trying to determine causality vs association between an event and a medication when treating chronic neuropathic pain need to know if outcomes are related to a placebo or nocebo effect. For future trials, the best choice of endpoints when studying chronic neuropathic pain may be determined by this study's findings.
RE: Technology is diverse and surprising, how to bridge the future gaps?
@ankur The science fiction author William Gibson says the future has already happened – we just don’t know where. From considering technological drivers, we now turn to human futures. We believe these will be more stable and less likely to change, but will raise increasingly unexpected interactions with the new technologies. In areas like human error this is alarming, for if we believe that technology improves – why else would we adopt it? – then, as human error will still occur, the error must even more surely be due to the humans involved, not the improved technologies which were intended to design out error. In other words, the irresistible drive to adopt improved technology may exacerbate our management of human error. The economic drivers that push technologies have vested interests in promoting benefits and belittling problems. And healthcare has no end of problems: we all want and expect better care, costs are rising and performance is declining; living longer, and living with chronic illness, are other problems. Healthcare staff are over-worked and under-resourced... it is hard to imagine technology changing that. On the contrary, many technologies (take MRI scanners, heart implants) are very expensive, and buying into them will exacerbate financial pressures.
RE: Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)??
@tiash Although the IoMT is not a new thing in 2021, this sector will grow exponentially in the coming years. This industry involves plenty of digital health trends, and each of them offers excellent uses to healthcare specialists, with $ billions saved in return.
There are many companies providing IoMT solutions, including TATEEDA, who can help you design and tune your IoMT system with the help of sophisticated custom software.
