NIH's ‘precision nutrition’ bet aims for individualized diets | Science

Summary There's no one-size-fits-all diet. For example, some people in a 2015 study of 800 Israeli volunteers got their biggest blood sugar spike from bananas or bread, others from a sugary cookie. Now, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) is making a major push to understand these individual differences. Last week, the agency announced what it calls the largest study yet to probe "precision nutrition." The $156 million, 5-year effort will examine how 10,000 Americans process foods by collecting data

New CRISPR technology could revolutionise gene therapy, offering new hope to people with genetic diseases

Shutterstock The day a muddled mob stormed the US Capitol building, a team of American researchers published a paper in Nature that signified a landmark in gene therapy. The head of the US National Institutes of Health, Francis Collins had joined forces with Harvard University professor David Liu and others to tackle progeria, a genetic disorder that causes children to age rapidly. The achievement, successfully tested in mice, was made possible by Liu’s invention of a second-generation CRISPR gene-editing

The US National Institutes of Health did not recommend ivermectin to treat Covid-19 patients

A Facebook post claiming the anti-parasite drug ivermectin has been “officially recommended” by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to treat Covid-19 in the US has been shared more than 100 times in South Africa. The claim is false; the NIH confirmed to AFP Fact Check that there is not yet enough data to “recommend either for or against the use of ivermectin for the treatment of Covid-19” in the US. Furthermore, it is the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that approves drugs in the US, not the NIH.

How To Get To The Core Of Your Work Stress

By: Jessica LaMarre Stress has been an epidemic for decades. Time magazine’s June 6, 1983 cover story called stress “The Epidemic of the Eighties” and referred to it as our leading health problem. In 2015, the US National Institutes of Health released a national study that found 60-80% of primary care visits are stress related. In 2020, the pandemic caused American’s stress levels to rise to greater proportions: Nearly eight in ten adults (78%) say the coronavirus pandemic is a significant source of

U.S. eyeing UK COVID-19 variant but South Africa one more concerning: NIH’s Collins

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is closely watching the more infectious variant of COVID-19 after British officials warned that it may also be more deadly, U.S. National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins said on Saturday. But U.S. health officials are somewhat more worried about a separate variant from South Africa, although that one has not yet been identified among U.S. cases of the novel coronavirus, he told MSNBC in an interview. Collins noted the UK's data was preliminary, and said

SpaceX is human experimentation without consent

SpaceX satellites testing, between the 44th and 52nd latitude, includes Bonner County, but not the latitude where Elon Musk of SpaceX resides with his family. Is my family less important than Elon Musks? Is yours? Gold standard studies by the National Toxicology Program of the U.S. National Institutes of Health and the Ramazzini Institute, both funded by our federal government, have proven beyond any reasonable doubt that exposure to RF microwave radiation can have significant adverse health effects.

Designing vaccines for people, not profits

In theory, the arrival of a safe and effective vaccine would represent the beginning of the end of the Covid-19 pandemic. Recent announcements of demonstrated efficacy in Covid-19 vaccine trials have brought hope that a return to normality is in sight. The preliminary data for Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna’s novel mRNA vaccines are highly encouraging, suggesting that their approval for emergency use is forthcoming. And more recent news of effectiveness (albeit at a slightly lower rate) in a vaccine from AstraZeneca
