Mask mouth causes gum disease, which increases coronavirus death risk by 900%

New research has determined that a person with gum disease who tests “positive” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is nine times more likely to die than a “positive” case without gum disease. Published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology, the study determined that patients with gum disease showed blood markers of inflammation throughout the body, which could … Continue reading Mask mouth causes gum disease, which increases coronavirus death risk by 900%

“Mask mouth,” skin disease and breathing difficulties: Experts reveal the dangers of prolonged use of face masks

Wearing protective face masks is now a common practice, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. But while health officials are busy reminding the public to keep their masks on, researchers are starting to question whether face masks are really effective. Studies have shown that they may not provide the level of protection that mask advocates initially rest their faith on.

Can oxygen treatments help prevent neurodegenerative disease?

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) limits the amount of oxygen that reaches important parts of the body. Patients with this condition are, thus, very prone to developing neurodegenerative diseases. But a Canadian-led research team advised that giving these patients extra doses of oxygen could help prevent the onset of dementia. For their experiment, researchers from the University of British Columbia (UBC) Okanagan flew all the … Continue reading Can oxygen treatments help prevent neurodegenerative disease?

How zinc can boost your immune health

Zinc is essential for the normal development and function of your immune system, as it protects against susceptibility to pathogens, mediates natural killer cells, activates T-lymphocytes, regulates macrophages, and is central to DNA replication. (Article by Joseph Mercola republished from TheEpochTimes.com) You have at least 300 enzymes that require zinc to function normally. Evidence shows zinc helps … Continue reading How zinc can boost your immune health

Medicinal plants: The survival uses of eucalyptus

Eucalyptus is a fast-growing tree that’s native to Australia. It has a distinct chemical makeup that lends itself to several medicinal and household uses. Its antiseptic, antifungal and anti-inflammatory effects stem mostly from the compound eucalyptol, a common ingredient in mouthwash and cough suppressant. There are more than 400 hundred different species of eucalyptus. Eucalyptus globulus, or blue gum, is … Continue reading Medicinal plants: The survival uses of eucalyptus

Study: Over-the-counter drugs can increase your risk of developing dementia

Anticholinergic drugs are prescribed by doctors to treat a variety of conditions. These range from inflammatory lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to gastrointestinal disorders like diarrhea and brain disorders like Parkinson’s disease. Anticholinergic drugs work by blocking a chemical called acetylcholine, which serves as the chief neurotransmitter of the parasympathetic nervous system. This part … Continue reading Study: Over-the-counter drugs can increase your risk of developing dementia

Use N-acetylcysteine? The FDA is trying to make it illegal because it could help treat COVID-19

As a favor to drug companies that are studying it as a potential “drug” treatment for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is going after N-acetylcysteine, a natural compound that the agency is suddenly claiming no longer qualifies as a legal dietary supplement. Reports indicate that the FDA has sent out … Continue reading Use N-acetylcysteine? The FDA is trying to make it illegal because it could help treat COVID-19

Can heart enlargement predict coronavirus deaths?

The disease caused by the Wuhan coronavirus (COVD-19) isn’t just a respiratory disease. It also affects other parts of the body and, in some cases, even the heart. Looking at how the virus affects certain parts of the heart can help doctors gauge the severity of COVID-19, says a new study. Researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York reported … Continue reading Can heart enlargement predict coronavirus deaths?
