@jayy Flavonoids, naturally occurring phytochemicals found in plants, are strong antioxidants. Considering the likely role of oxidative stress in age-related cognitive decline, flavonoids have been proposed as potentially important preventive. For the study, Willett and colleagues prospectively examined associations between long-term dietary flavonoids (flavonols, flavones, flavanones, flavan-3-ols, anthocyanins, polymeric flavonoids, and proanthocyanidins) and subjective cognitive decline (SCD) in 49,493 women from the Nurses' Health Study (1984-2006) and 27,842 men from the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (1986-2002). Those in the highest quintile of flavonoid consumption consumed about 600 mg daily on average while those in the lowest quintile only got about 150 mg daily.

@swastika To learn more, Liu and colleagues recruited 139 adult patients with BMIs between 28 and 45. Individuals with serious medical conditions, such as malignant tumors, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and others were excluded. Other exclusion criteria included smoking, ongoing participation in a weight-loss program, GI surgery within the prior year, use of medications that impact energy balance and weight, and planned or current pregnancy.
The Future of Home Health Monitoring!
A bathmat that talks to your toothbrush. A bed that tells you how to sleep better. A camera that measures your stress levels. At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022 Annual Meeting, inventors touted dozens of such new devices for monitoring people's health as they go about their daily business. The innovations offered a snapshot of the day when dozens of previously inert household objects, animated by artificial intelligence, begin monitoring their owners' every heartbeat and wirelessly reporting back to physicians (a day that is probably closer than we realize).
RE: 'Striking' Differences in BP When Wrong Cuff Size Is Used!
@tathoi people who required an extra-large cuff and were measured with a regular cuff had an average BP of 144/86.7 mm Hg, which is in the stage 2 hypertension range. But when the correct size cuff was used, the average BP was 124.5/79.3 mm Hg, or in the prehypertensive range. Overall, the overestimation of BP due to using too small a cuff misclassified 39% of people as being hypertensive, while the underestimation of BP due to using a cuff that was too large missed 22% of people with hypertension.
What are all the effects of high prolactin level in our body?
Hello, my sister is 26 years old. She is married and trying to conceive. She had miscarriage earlier. Her blood test report indicated that she has high prolactin level. That is 40.8 ng/mL (normal range, 4.8 to 23.3 ng/mL). Her menstrual cycles is also not regular. I am not sure whether this is due to her high level of prolactin or not. I would like to know the effects of high prolactin level in our body. Please comment.
