JAMA commentary Nutrition knowledge essential for todays physicians

No Comments

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jul 3 2019Nutrition knowledge is essential for today’s physicians, according to a JAMA Internal Medicine commentary published July 1. The commentary–authored by Neal Barnard, MD, president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine–points out that overweight, diabetes, heart disease, and many forms of cancer are driven by unhealthful diets, and that most doctors do not have the knowledge to turn this problem around. In a 2018 survey, 61 percent of internal medicine residents reported having little or no training in nutrition.In the commentary, Dr. Barnard recalls a patient who was hospitalized with a foot infection that was a complication of longstanding diabetes. Although Dr. Barnard notes that with sufficient change in the diet, insulin resistance and diabetes itself can improve and sometimes even disappear, the patient’s doctors recommended amputation.Related StoriesIt is okay for women with lupus to get pregnant with proper care, says new studyAre fruit fly ‘avatars’ the next step in personalized medicine?Diet and nutrition influence microbiome in colonic mucosa”Although the roots of type 2 diabetes are in the everyday food choices that lead to obesity and insulin resistance, we were ready to amputate, but never started a discussion about improving her diet,” writes Dr. Barnard. While 94 percent of resident physicians recognize the importance of diet and feel that nutrition counseling should be part of patient visits, only 14 percent feel trained to offer it.Research shows that a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, grains, and beans, can help fight heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and cancer. But just 9.3 percent of U.S. adults meet the daily vegetable intake recommendation, while only 12.2 percent of adults get enough fruit.Dr. Barnard recommends five steps the medical community can take to address this lack of knowledge about nutrition: (1) Nutrition should be a required part of continuing medical education for physicians everywhere; (2) Doctors should work with registered dietitians; (3) Electronic medical record services should include customizable nutrition questions and handouts; (4) Doctors are role models and should embrace that fact by modeling healthy eating habits; (5) The medical community should support healthier food environments, including in hospitals and schools.Legislators throughout the U.S. are also calling for nutrition education for physicians. Last month, Washington, D.C., Councilmember Mary Cheh introduced a bill recommending continuing education on nutrition for physicians, nurses, and physician assistants. In New York, lawmakers have introduced similar legislation: A7695/S5887.Founded in 1985, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a nonprofit organization that promotes preventive medicine, conducts clinical research, and encourages higher standards for ethics and effectiveness in education and research.

Why are TVs so cheap now Well your smart TV is watching

first_imgYour smart TV is watching you. And making money off you as well. Citation: Why are TVs so cheap now? Well, your smart TV is watching you and making extra money, too (2019, February 22) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-02-tvs-cheap-smart-tv-extra.html That’s why the prices of TVs have fallen so dramatically over the last five years.A mix of lower LCD prices, more intense competition and new ways to profit off the consumer once the set enters our homes have turned the boob tube into something more like a razor. And we, the viewers, are the razor blades.Bill Baxter, the Chief Technology Officer for TV set giant Vizio, referred to it as the “post-purchase monetization” of the TV on a recent podcast interview with the Verge.Translated, that means that more ads are coming at you via prominent branded movie and TV channels on smart TVs. These channels share ad revenues with set manufacturers like Vizio, Samsung, LG, an avenue that didn’t exist in the pre-streaming era. They also profit by selling data of your viewing histories to programmers and marketers.The manufacturers have been tracking viewers on smart TVs for several years, but it wasn’t until 2017 and beyond that more consumers started buying smart sets, which negate the need for a streaming device like a Roku or Fire Stick to bring in online entertainment from the likes of Netflix and Hulu.Today, virtually all TVs sold today are smart TVs, says Steve Koenig of the Consumer Technology Association.So what’s new, and helping manufacturers make money off us once the TV enters our home, is the rise of ad-supported streaming channels that share ad revenues with the likes of Vizio, Samsung and LG, and get prominent positions on the smart TV dial.—On Vizio TVs, the “Watch Free TV,” channel on its smart TV sets is actually the same Pluto TV channel seen on streaming players, computers and mobile devices.—Rival Xumo has a similar arrangement, called Channel Plus on LG sets.—Tubi is on Samsung TVs and Xumo on Panasonic, Sanyo and Sharp sets.—Streaming player maker Roku has its own arrangement with TCL, which sells Roku branded sets, where it offers the Roku Channel.The Roku channel is similar to Xumo, Tubi and Pluto in offering ad-supported older movies and TV shows, for free, as an alternative to all those internet streaming channels that charge a monthly subscription. Being on smart TVs is “great for us,” says Pluto CEO Tom Ryan. “The hardware companies, in their quest for higher margins, are looking to content and services to get more revenue. We’ve got it.”TVs have historically been a cutthroat, low-margin business, hence all those Black Friday deals of large-screen sets going out the door for $300 to $400. We found a 43-inch TCL Smart TV with 4K resolution at Target this month for $250.The wholesale price for an average 50-inch set has fallen to $335, from $589 in 2013, according to the CTA.Once “smart TVs” began to become popular, manufacturers saw a new opportunity in treating the set as a “glass window” to our viewing habits and reporting them to marketers for a fee, in a process called Automatic Content Recognition or ACR.In 2017, Vizio settled with the Federal Trade Commission and New Jersey’s attorney general office for $2.2 million, when it was charged with collecting data without the consent of users.Now, Vizio, which continues to collect data, has users opt-in. “Unless you turn off ACR collection in the Settings menu, we may share viewing data with data partners, including analytics companies, media companies and advertisers,” Vizio tells viewers in the settings menu.The manufacturers say what they’re doing is no different from what Nielsen has done for years. They monitor your viewing to determine the hits and they say they do it anonymously. (Of course, with Nielsen, the process of signing up and participating is a great deal more obvious and visible.)As Inscape Data Services, the wholly-owned subsidiary of TV set manufacturer Vizio says on its website that it collects data without “personally identifiable information (PII),” to identify “what show is being watched and what IP address the device is connected to.”Justin Brookman, the director of privacy and tech policy for nonprofit consumer advocacy organization Consumer Reports, doesn’t buy it.”There’s no such thing as anonymous tracking,” he says. “They have ways…to tie them to your TV.”If “I Spy TV” sounds creepy, well, how about those other tech devices in your home?”This pales in comparison,” says Jodie McAfee, a senior vice-president of Inscape, which collects data from over 10 million Vizio smart TVs. “What a TV is generating on data is not nearly as granular. It just knows what shows I’m watching and whether the ad is being viewed.”Compare that to a smartphone, which tracks your every move in the house, both physically and on the device. It knows what websites you’ve been to, who you called and texted with, what products you purchased, and if you turned on Facebook or signed into Google, your age, demographic, salary and more.Unlike other devices, smart TVs haven’t been affected by the Trump administration’s trade war with China, where most of the sets are made, says Steve Koenig of the CTA.”Car audio has been hit, but smart home products haven’t been,” he says. “We believe tariffs are a tax on products, and don’t want to see them in any form.”Meanwhile, back in the living room, McAfee insists that ACR tracking can help consumers by finding better recommendations. “It improves the viewing experience,” he says.And if you don’t want your viewing tracked, viewers can go to the menu settings and turn off ACR (which is supposed to be off by default anyway.) Or, they can go a few steps further and turn the Wi-Fi off on the set altogether. Credit: CC0 Public Domain Explore further This document is subject to copyright.

Modern Humans Failed in Early Attempt to Migrate Out of Africa Old

first_img Discovery in Greece The two ancient skulls were unearthed in the late 1970s by researchers at the Museum of Anthropology at the University of Athens. Given that the skulls were found in Apidima Cave, the researchers named them Apidima 1 and Apidima 2. Both skulls, neither of which had a lower jaw, were found side by side in a block of breccia, angular pieces of rock that were cemented together over time. However, neither skull was in good shape; the damaged Apidima 1 included only the back of the skull, and at the time, researchers weren’t sure what species it came from. Apidima 2, which preserved the facial region of the skull, was identified as Neanderthal, but it was broken and distorted. For years, the skulls sat at the Museum of Anthropology in Athens until they were finally cleaned and prepared from the breccia block in the late 1990s and early 2000s. In the new study, Harvati and her colleagues put both skulls in a CT scanner, which generated 3D virtual reconstructions of each specimen. Then, they analyzed the features of each. As in previous analyses, the team concluded that Apidima 2, which had a thick, rounded brow ridge, was from an early Neanderthal. Identifying Apidima 1 was more challenging because of its fragmentary remains, but the researchers were able to create mirror images of its right and left sides, which gave them a more complete reconstruction. [In Photos: Oldest Homo Sapiens Fossils Ever Found] Several clues, such as the rounded back of the skull (a feature unique to modern humans), indicated that Apidima 1 was an early modern human, or Homo sapiens, the researchers said. Dating the skulls Next, the researchers dated the skulls. Previous analyses had estimated that the skulls were roughly from the same time period, given that they were discovered next to each other, suggesting that they lived around the same time. But by using a method known as uranium-series dating, the new team found that the skulls were not from the same time period. At 170,000 years old, the Neanderthal skull fit within the range of other Neanderthal remains found in other parts of Europe. But the modern human skull was an unexpected outlier, predating the next-oldest H. sapiens remains in Europe by more than 150,000 years, the researchers found. Uranium-series dating is one of only a few ways to date such ancient bones, “but it’s not without some pitfalls,” said Larry Edwards, regents professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Minnesota, who was not involved in the study. In effect, the method works because uranium decays into thorium. The more thorium there is in a sample, the older it is, Edwards told Live Science. However, bones and teeth don’t contain much of their own uranium; rather, they absorb it from the environment over time. “That then requires you to make interpretations on how and when the uranium was picked up and whether or not the uranium was lost,” he said. But although this technique isn’t ideal for dating skulls such as Apidima 1 and 2, it can still provide useful data, Edwards said. “I think it’s pretty solid, their [dating] conclusions,” he said. Out-of-Africa implications Despite the skull’s title as the “oldest known modern human fossil in Eurasia,” the new finding does not rewrite the fundamentals of human evolution, said Eleanor Scerri, an associate professor and leader of the Pan-African Evolution research group at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany, who was not involved in the study. Those fundamentals are that humans first evolved in Africa and then ventured out into the rest of the world. “The oldest human fossils still come from Africa and are about 100,000 years older than the Apidima fossil,” Scerri told Live Science in an email. “That is roughly 4,000 generations — ample opportunity to move around.” That said, “if we want to ask questions specifically about the early history of our species in Eurasia, then this study may confirm the arguments made for multiple, early dispersals,” Scerri said. In addition, this finding supports the view that the population of “early Homo sapiens was fragmented and dispersed,” she said. [Top 10 Mysteries of the First Humans] Previous studies have suggested that “Homo sapiens left Africa every time the Saharan and Arabian deserts shrunk, which happened broadly on 100,000-year cycles,” roughly agreeing with dates from this study, she noted. What’s more, if modern humans truly had reached Eurasia by at least 210,000 years ago, then “we can no longer assume that ‘Mousterian’ stone tool assemblages found across large regions of Eurasia are necessarily being produced by Neanderthals,” she said. There are many avenues open to researchers hoping to learn more about the Apidima skulls. For instance, the skulls could contain ancient DNA or primordial proteins that could verify their species, Eric Delson, who was not involved with the research, wrote in an accompanying perspective published online today (July 10) in the journal Nature. Delson is a professor and the chair of the Department of Anthropology at Lehman College and The Graduate Center at the City University of New York. Moreover, researchers could study the cave’s paleo-environment and climate to figure out what conditions were like when Apidima 1 and 2 lived there. Today, the cave is on a cliff facing the sea, reachable only by boat, Harvati said. The study was published online today in the journal Nature. Photos: Newfound Ancient Human Relative Discovered in Philippines In Photos: Bones from a Denisovan-Neanderthal Hybrid A prehistoric, broken skull is revealing the secrets of ancient humans, divulging that early modern humans left Africa much earlier than previously thought, a new study finds. The skull, found in Eurasia and dating back 210,000 years, is the oldest modern human bone that anthropologists have discovered outside Africa, the researchers said. This skull, however, had an unusual neighbor: a 170,000-year-old, possibly Neanderthal skull that was found resting next to it, in a cave in southern Greece. Given that the Neanderthal skull is a solid 40,000 years younger than the modern human skull, it appears that this particular human’s early dispersal out of Africa failed. There are no living descendants of this enigmatic human alive today, and this person’s group was replaced by Neanderthals, who later lived in that very same cave, the researchers said.

Other earlier modern-human dispersals out of Africa have been documented at sites in Israel, including one based on the discovery of a 194,000- to 177,000-year-old modern human jaw from Misliya Cave and others tied to early human fossils dated to about 130,000 to 90,000 years ago at the Skhul and Qafzeh caves. But “we think that these early migrants did not actually contribute to modern humans living outside of Africa today, but rather died out and were probably locally replaced by Neanderthals,” Harvati said. “We hypothesize this is a similar situation with the Apidima 1 [the newly dated modern human skull] population.” This is the oldest known modern human skull in Eurasia, dating to about 210,000 years ago.
