Can Gardening Prevent Cancer?

“No matter where you go in the world, no matter what language they speak, people say there’s just something about it that makes them feel better,” says Jill Litt, a public health researcher and professor of environmental studies at the University of Colorado Boulder.

To find out precisely why that is, Litt this spring launched one of the first-ever randomized controlled trials to explore the measurable health benefits of community gardening.

The three-year trial, funded with a $950,000 American Cancer Society Research Scholars grant, will include 312 participants over the course of three years.

Each season, half will be randomly assigned to join a community garden for the first time through the nonprofit Denver Urban Gardens, while half will remain on a wait list until the following year. Both groups will be screened before planting time, harvest time, and the following spring to dete

Being Active Saves Lives Whether A Gym Workout, Walking To Work Tr Washing The Floor

Physical activity of any kind can prevent heart disease and death, says a large international study involving more than 130,000 people from 17 countries published this week in The Lancet.

The Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology (PURE) study, led by the Population Health Research Institute of McMaster University and Hamilton Health Sciences, shows any activity is good for people to meet the current guideline of 30 minutes of activity a day, or 150 minutes a week to raise the heart rate.

Although previous research, from high income countries, shows leisure time activity helps prevent heart disease and death, the PURE study also includes people from low and middle-income countries where people don’t generally don’t participant in leisure-time physical activity.

“By including low and middle-income countries in this study, we were able to determine the benefit of activities such as active

Studies Inconsistent On When Concussed Students Should Return To Learn, Policies And Protocols May Be Needed

Youth who have sustained one or more concussions may experience challenges when they return to the classroom and integrate back into active learning. Investigators at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Children’s of Alabama have reviewed literature and studies focused on returning to academics postconcussion to identify a full range of themes and gaps in research that need to be addressed.

“Research surrounding concussed students’ returning to learn is noticeably lacking compared to that focused on return-to-play issues,” said Laura Dreer, PhD, director of the UAB Psychological and Neuropsychological Clinical Research Services.

“Parents, educators and pediatricians often struggle with how much cognitive rest is needed to let the brain heal, and how and when to safely integrate students back into the classroom without exacerbating symptoms, like headaches.”

Hold The Phone: An Ambulance Might Lower Your Chances Of Surviving Some Injuries

Victims of gunshots and stabbings are significantly less likely to die if they’re taken to the trauma center by a private vehicle than ground emergency medical services (EMS), according to results of a new analysis.

A report on the study’s findings, published in JAMA Surgery, highlights the importance of studying the effects of transport, EMS services and other prehospital interventions by specific injury type.

“Time is truly of the essence when it comes to certain kinds of injuries and our analysis suggests that, for penetrating injuries such as knife and gun wounds, it might be better to just get to a trauma center as soon as possible in whatever way possible,” says Elliott Haut, MD, PhD, an associate professor of surgery and emergency medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the paper’s senior author.

While Haut acknowledges that more research needs to be con
