A simple mouth rinse could spot early heart disease risk

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

What if we could identify the earliest warning signs of cardiovascular disease from a simple saliva sample? Scientists think they have found a way to do so. Gum inflammation leads to periodontitis, which is linked with cardiovascular disease.

The team used a simple oral rinse to see if levels of —an indicator of —in the saliva of healthy adults could be linked to warning signs for cardiovascular disease. they found that high levels correlated with compromised flow-mediated dilation, an early indicator of poor arterial health.

“Even in young healthy adults, low levels of oral inflammatory load may have an impact on cardiovascular health—one of the leading causes of death in North America,” said Dr. Trevor King of Mount Royal University, corresponding author of the study published in Frontiers in Oral Health.

Google reportedly building A.I. that offers life advice

Posted by in categories: health, robotics/AI


One of Google’s AI units is using generative AI to develop at least 21 different tools for life advice, planning and tutoring, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

Google’s DeepMind has become the “nimble, fast-paced” standard-bearer for the company’s AI efforts, as CNBC previously reported, and is behind the development of the tools, the Times reported.

Short Bouts of Exercise Mobilize Immune Cells in the Blood

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health, neuroscience

Exercise has many health benefits, from improving brain health to strengthening bones and muscles. Included in the vast array of advantages associated with exercise is cancer prevention and control.

The scientific literature suggests that physical activity mobilizes immune cells, activating them to fight cancer. This idea prompted an investigation into the interplay between exercise and immunity, the results of which were recently published in Scientific Reports.

The study investigated how 10-minute exercise sessions impact immune cells in patients recently diagnosed with breast cancer. The exercise regimen in the study consisted of pedaling a supine bicycle (laying on the back while cycling the legs) for ten minutes. This type of activity, considered “acute exercise,” is loosely defined as single bouts of physical activity. Acute exercise directly impacts circulation, and when the blood starts pumping, immune cells travel throughout the body, becoming more likely to encounter cancerous cells.

Daniel Schmachtenberger: “Artificial Intelligence and The Superorganism” | The Great Simplification

Posted by in categories: existential risks, health, robotics/AI

On this episode, Daniel Schmachtenberger returns to discuss a surprisingly overlooked risk to our global systems and planetary stability: artificial intelligence. Through a systems perspective, Daniel and Nate piece together the biophysical history that has led humans to this point, heading towards (and beyond) numerous planetary boundaries and facing geopolitical risks all with existential consequences. How does artificial intelligence, not only add to these risks, but accelerate the entire dynamic of the metacrisis? What is the role of intelligence vs wisdom on our current global pathway, and can we change course? Does artificial intelligence have a role to play in creating a more stable system or will it be the tipping point that drives our current one out of control?

“Transmissible Vaccines” Could Be The Vaccine Technology Of The Future

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

The fight against deadly diseases has always been a tough one. While vaccines have been the gold standard in warding off threats like diphtheria, tetanus, and measles, ensuring everyone gets a dose is no small feat. The answer to this might lie in an audacious new approach: transmissible vaccines.

It’s like using fire to combat fire – but can we control it?

When a large portion of a community gets vaccinated, we achieve herd immunity. However, ensuring global vaccination, especially in areas with inadequate health facilities, is an uphill task.

Hair straightening chemicals associated with higher uterine cancer risk

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry, health

NIH study finds Black women may be more affected due to higher use.

Women who used chemical hair straightening products were at higher risk for uterine cancer compared to women who did not report using these products, according to a new study from the National Institutes of Health. The researchers found no associations with uterine cancer for other hair products that the women reported using, including hair dyes, bleach, highlights, or perms.

The study data includes 33,497 U.S. women ages 35–74 participating in the Sister Study, a study led by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of NIH, that seeks to identify risk factors for breast cancer and other health conditions. The women were followed for almost 11 years and during that time 378 uterine cancer cases were diagnosed.

Body of Work podcast: The importance of vaccines and public health

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

The United States is experiencing its worst measles outbreak since 1992. While the spread of measles can be prevented with the MMR vaccine, misinformation about vaccines has gained traction in recent years.

How do vaccines help protect communities and public health overall? Dr. Peter Hotez, dean for the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, discusses what you should know about vaccines on the Body of Work podcast.
