20 Small Victories That Prove You're Making Weight Loss Progress

Health
It’s a new year, which means new resolutions either motivate and inspire us—or just make us feel guilty when we don’t hit those goals. Especially weight loss goals. Instead of judging your weight loss success based on a number on a scale, what if you shifted your mindset to celebrate non-scale victories, like how good you feel after working out? “The numbers on the scale can get in your head and distract you from other progress you may be making,” says Ashley Stewart, a NASM-certified personal trainer and founder of Kardiá Personal Training. What's more, although weighing yourself may seem like an easy way to track progress, scales are notoriously finicky. Ever notice that the one in your gym and the one you have at home show you wildly different numbers?All of that is why we spoke with dietitians, doctors, health coaches, and other experts to get their top tips for measuring health and fitness success outside the scale. From increased energy to lower cholesterol, there are plenty of non-scale victories to tell that you’re making progress.

Patients back in hospital after 'EVALI' vaping illness relapses

Health
Some patients who have been discharged from hospital after recovering from lung injury associated with vaping have had to be readmitted, US officials said Friday as they probe an outbreak that has killed 26.Related video: Vaping-related deaths soar to 26 (TODAY) Authorities issued new clinical guidance and are now referring to the illness as "e-cigarette or vaping product use associated lung injury" -- "EVALI."Around 1,300 people have so far fallen ill since March, almost all hospitalized, with the rate of new cases showing no signs of slowing despite a series of dire public health warnings.A 17-year-old became the youngest person to die from the illness this week, and 80 percent of cases are among individuals under 35.Anne Schuchat, a senior official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told reporters: "We're aware of a handful of individuals who have been readmitted for clinical care after discharge for lung injury. We need to understand these accounts better."

Study: Slow walkers might age faster than people who pick up the pace

Health
Ambling along at a leisurely pace might seem like an ideal anti-stress strategy, but if slow-and-steady is your usual speed, it could be an indication that you’re aging more quickly than someone with a faster gait.New research published in JAMA Network Open used data from a long-term study collecting health information on over 900 New Zealanders over a 40-year period that started when the participants were around 3 years old. They assessed gait speed in April of this year, focusing on the slowest 20 percent and fastest 20 percent throughout three walking conditions: at their usual gait, at their normal pace while reciting alternate letters of the alphabet out loud, and at their maximum gait speed.Speed was determined using a GAITRite Electronic Walkway, a system that provides gait analysis and identifies anomalies. Unlike a treadmill, this device—which looks like a very long yoga mat—is flat on the ground and features pressure sensors that can measure speed and walking patterns.

'The face of heroin': Mom shares haunting before and after pics of addiction

Health
Like many before and after pictures, the images Jennifer Salfen-Tracy shared on social media show a stark difference. But the mother's photos are especially tragic: They show the heartbreaking devastation of addiction on her oldest son, Cody Bishop."The face of heroin and meth … is reality for so many people and families in the world today," Salfen-Tracy wrote on Facebook. "I have learned along this path that so many people and families deal with the same heartache but just do not talk about it."Taken only seven months apart, the first picture of Bishop shows a healthy young man with broad shoulders, a muscular build and blond hair. The later photo reveals what looks like the ghost of the first man. Bishop still has the telltale blond hair but he is emaciated, his collarbones poke out of a tank top and sores cover his skin.

Vaping illness: THC additives include vitamin E acetate, metals

Health
Nearly half of the THC-containing vaping samples analyzed in the federal investigation of lung illnesses contain vitamin E acetate, a dangerous diluting agent, government officials said Friday.Vitamin E acetate is used by some in the cannabis industry to cheaply thin the THC oil used to ingest the drug through vaping devices. Tetrahydrocannabinol is the chemical responsible for most of the psychological effects of marijuana.Colorado, which was the first state to legalize marijuana for recreational use only, recently banned vitamin E acetate.  Despite the widespread public alarm over vaping, there is little evidence of a slowing of the lung illnesses, said Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There are also reports of people being readmitted from five to 55 days after hospitalization for lung injury, but it's unclear whether it was due to a resumption of vaping or other causes.

After months of planning and narrowly missing the mark in 2017, Eliud Kipchoge ran the fastest 26.2 miles ever in front of thousands of fans in Vienna on Saturday morning—and crossed the seemingly impossible barrier of two hours.The 34-year-old from Kenya, who is unparalleled in the marathon, further cemented his legacy by running 26.2 miles faster than anybody in history, finishing the time trial event in 1:59:40. He held a sub-4:34 pace for the distance. “I wanted to run under two hours and show human beings can do a good job and lead a good life. It shows the positivity of sport,” Kipchoge said. “I want to make the sport an interesting sport whereby all the human beings can run and together we can make this world a beautiful world.”The race started with fog and mist in Vienna, with temperatures in the high 40s and humidity at 90 percent—a bit above the “ideal” of 80 percent heading into it. There was a 10 percent chance of rain going into the day, and the light rain started around 58 minutes in.

Judge Orders Pause in Opioid Litigation Against Purdue Pharma and Sacklers

Health
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Citing mounting costs of litigation that are siphoning funds that could otherwise go to abate the opioid crisis, a bankruptcy judge on Friday ordered a pause in legal action by states against Purdue Pharma and its owners, the Sacklers.The ruling was a setback for 25 states that have forcefully opposed a national opioid settlement negotiated last month among the company and the Sacklers and cities, counties and other states that have filed lawsuits against them. To raise money for the settlement, Purdue has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and asked that all litigation against it and the Sacklers be halted.At the end of a seven-hour hearing, Judge Robert D. Drain of the United States bankruptcy court in White Plains, N.Y., pushed the parties to a compromise to address the opposing states’ key concerns. Rather than stopping the lawsuits altogether, as is customary in bankruptcy, he gave all the parties until Nov. 6 to come up with a disclosure plan. It would assure that the Sacklers reveal how much money they have earned from the sales of the opioid painkiller OxyContin, and that an angry public would eventually learn the complete story of the company’s role in the opioid epidemic.

Here's how this guy lost 120 lbs. and got back into shape

Health
Three years ago, John Gramlich realized that his weight had spiraled out of control. He’d just moved back to his native Oklahoma after spending 10 months in Nebraska for work—a place where he didn’t have the community, friends, or family that he had back home. When he returned, his family gave him a wake-up call."I had some really tough conversations with my sisters, who are my best friends, and some other close people,” Gramlich recalled. “And they said, ‘We're glad you're happy and you've gone back to home base to reset, but you need to get a grip on this, you need to prioritize this.’”That’s when he tried joining a regular gym, getting a trainer, and running (which he hates to this day), but to no avail. What ended up working for Gramlich was CrossFit.“It's the variation in it, the camaraderie, and the community that's kept me going and kept me on the hook,” he says. But even after he got comfortable in the gym, he had some work to do on the nutrition front. Friends at the gym proved helpful, but as a self-proclaimed “horrible cook,” he needed some help in the kitchen. After looking around online and seeing that Trifecta Nutrition partners with lots of CrossFitters, he thought the company would be a good match for his needs.

And that makes your job as a gift giver both super hard or surprisingly easy. On one hand, it can seem like you have nothing to go on. On the other hand, it’s an opportunity to get creative—and that’s where the fun starts.

Are neti pots safe? An allergist says yes, but make sure to use this water

Health
With allergies and colds causing runny noses, nasal congestion, and sinus pressure, you may think your answer is to use a neti pot. Nasal irrigation isn't new, but is it safe? We asked allergist Dr. Kathleen Dass, MD, from the Michigan Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Center, and here's everything you need to know about using a neti pot. A neti pot looks like a small teapot with a handle at one end and a spout at the other. They can be made of ceramic or plastic, and they "are a natural, alternative, and safe way to clear out the mucus" from your nose and sinuses, explained Dr. Dass, whether you have a cold, allergies, or a sinus infection. "Neti pots help remove crusting, thin, or thick secretions and can help make medications more effective."Just fill the neti pot with a solution of warm or room-temperature saltwater (whatever temperature you prefer), place the spout in one nostril, lean over your sink and tilt your other nostril down toward the drain, and allow the warm saltwater to drip out your open nostril, flushing out your nasal passages.

Chronic pain sufferers beg DEA to reconsider prescription opioid cuts

Health
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has proposed reducing the manufacturing of prescription opioids for the fourth year in a row, but chronic pain patients are begging the agency to reconsider.The proposal aims to reduce the amount of fentanyl production by 31 percent, hydrocodone by 19 percent, hydromorphone by 25 percent, oxycodone by 9 percent and oxymorphone by 55 percent, according to the DEA. Altogether, the cuts would constitute a 53 percent decrease in legal opioid production since 2016.The DEA has been criticized  for allowing drug makers to ramp up opioid production between 2003 and 2013, leading to a sharp increase in overdose deaths. More than 140,000 people died from overdoses in that period, according to a report by the U.S. Department of Justice. In an attempt to change course, the DEA has proposed cutting opioid manufacturing. Victims of chronic pain, however, claim the agency is taking away the medication they need to live productive lives.

No Drop in Vaping Cases, C.D.C. Says

As illnesses and deaths linked to vaping continue to rise, health experts on Friday updated their advice to doctors on how best to recognize symptoms and treat patients, and warned that the start of the flu season would make it harder to arrive at the right diagnosis. “I can’t stress enough the seriousness of these lung injuries associated with e-cigarettes or vaping products,” Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said at a news briefing. “We are not seeing a meaningful drop-off in new cases, and unfortunately many more people have been hospitalized with lung injury each week.”A new concern has come to light. She said a handful of patients, fewer than five, were hospitalized for vaping illness, recovered and went home, and then wound up back in the hospital again, from five to 55 days later. The reason is not yet known, she said. One possibility is that the patients may have started vaping again.

How to Cope With Some of the Most Difficult Menopause Symptoms

Health
Menopause happens to every single woman, but that doesn’t mean the symptoms—or best treatments—are the same for everyone. Whether you’re dealing with hot flashes, mood swings, or trouble sleeping, menopause can be downright debilitating. But here’s the thing: You don’t have to just suffer through it and pretend everything is okay. From trying prescription meds to changing up your diet, there are things you can do that may help you feel a lot better. Here are some of the best menopause treatments and alternative therapies to try. (But, as always, talk to your doctor first to make sure you’re going down the right path).When it comes to easing menopause symptoms like hot flashes, anxiety, and irritability, hormone replacement therapy is a top choice for many women. These medications bring levels of estrogen and progesterone (which drop dramatically during menopause) back up, which helps improve your symptoms.

These Gentle Facial Cleansers Will Never Leave Sensitive Skin Feeling Dry or Tight

Health
For all the focus on serums, moisturizers, and anti-aging products, you may forget about an important piece of the skin care puzzle: a good face wash. “Cleanser is a really big deal, especially during the extreme times of year, like winter,” says Tina Alster, MD, director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery and a clinical professor at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Why? The colder temps outside coupled with the dry heat inside is already zapping moisture from your skin—so adding a harsh cleanser into the mix can spell trouble for your complexion. Your face wash is designed to clean the skin, so many are often packed with surfactants: soaps that draw dirt, oil, and grime from pores. This can strip even more moisture from the skin and lead to dry, flaky patches. It’s not just a matter of flakiness or that uncomfortable tight feeling—dry skin looks sallow, dull, and highlights lines and wrinkles.

From Dryness to Odors, Here’s Exactly How Your Vagina Changes During Menopause

Health
Menopause likely conjures images of hot flashes and mood swings. But have you ever thought about how the change impacts your vagina? Turns out, the decrease in estrogen that happens during menopause affects more than your mood and your cycle—it can also cause physical changes to your nether regions. “Vaginal changes may occur throughout all stages of menopause: perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause,” says Anna Klepchukova, MD, Chief Science Officer at Flo Health. From dryness to changes in the size and shape of your vagina, these changes can be significant but are considered normal, she notes. Keep reading to learn exactly how your vagina transforms throughout menopause. Estrogen helps keep your vaginal walls lubricated. With less of it, you’ll notice your vagina feels much drier. Known as vaginal atrophy, this thinning and drying of the vaginal walls may lead to other symptoms, including vaginal itching and burning, according to theMayo Clinic. Talk to your doctor about possible treatments, which may include vaginal moisturizers and lubricants.

Yesterday, Pitchfork reported that a material shortage has thrown a roadblock into the production of cassette tapes.Yes, you read that right: cassette tapes.Gamma ferric oxide is the most common material used in the magnetic strips of tape that store audio on cassettes. There’s only one factory used to refine the substance and it’s been under renovation for nearly a year — hurting a growing niche of the music industry.While vinyl records have enjoyed a sales boom over the past decade, enjoying 30 year highs and threatening to outsell CDs, cassette tapes have also seen a significant resurgence in the past ten years.Vinyl pressing plants have also had to work overtime producing greater numbers of records using refurbished presses, since there are no manufacturers making new ones. They often produce special editions that they ship to major retailers such as Target and Urban Outfitters, as well as independent record stores.

New PSA warns that youth football is just as bad as giving a kid a cigarette

Health
Few things are more American than football. (Save maybe apple pie, country music, and weekend BBQs.) If you come from a big-time football family, then gathering around the TV every Sunday to watch your team bring home another win is probably one of your favorite pastimes, and signing your kid up for pee-wee football season is practically a rite of passage. But for the last few years, health experts have started to question whether we’re starting our kids too young when it comes to the contact sport — and this week, a new PSA is warning parents about the long-term damage youth football can pose.The clip, released Thursday by the Concussion Legacy Foundation, is called “Tackle Can Wait,” and it opens on two pee wee football teams facing off. Someone hikes the ball, others scramble, and in a quick rush we see flashes of a game well-played.

Male breast cancer: What doctors need you to know

Health
Breast cancer was the furthest thing from Aubrey Glencamp's mind when he discovered a strange bump on one of his pecs. He was just 33 years old, he didn't have any family history of the disease, he was in good health so he didn't have any of the typical risk factors for the disease. Oh, and then there's the whole business of his gender. Isn't breast cancer a woman's disease?The young father quickly discovered the answer to that when his test results showed that not only did he, as a man, have cancer in his breast tissue but he had stage II HER-2 positive breast cancer, one of the most aggressive forms of the disease."I remember leaving work and just sitting in my car trying to process it all," he says. "I tried looking up more information on my diagnosis but everything I found was for women. I was desperate for information and yet there was almost nothing about male breast cancer."

Can Eliud Kipchoge Break 2 Hours?

Health
In his all-conquering career, it’s the final, elusive frontier—an impossible dream that Eliud Kipchoge will now try to make a reality. The 34-year-old has done it all—Olympic gold, world title, the marathon world record—but there is one thing he has yet to tick off his bucket list: a sub-two-hour marathon. “Many ideologies [have] been going that no human will break the two-hour mark but personally, I have dared to try,” Kipchoge said in a video of the INEOS 1:59 Challenge documentary series. “I am doing it to make history.” He is, without question, the greatest marathoner of all time, but in a park in Vienna, Austria, on Saturday, Kipchoge will aim for immortality. The start time for the event will be 8:15 a.m. in Vienna; 2:15 a.m. ET.Fans know that he has come close before. In May 2017, the Kenyan clocked 2:00:25 on a formula one racetrack in Monza, Italy, during Nike’s Breaking2 project. It was the fastest marathon ever run, but did not count as an official world record because of the use of rotating pacemakers.

Check Your Speed to Get More Out of Your Workout

Health
The barbell front squat is one of the most challenging moves in the gym, challenging your core to stay active for the entire time, and attacking your glutes, hamstrings, and quads. It's a challenging move to learn, too. But you don't need to run away from it. And if you use this approach from Sean Garner, C.P.T., you won't need to overload the bar with weight to benefit from the move, either. In a recent Instagram post, Garner broke down a front squat method that's joint-friendly and one of the best ways to perfect your form, the slow-tempo front squat. Here's your game plan: Instead of rushing through reps, you're going to use a 5-5-1 tempo. That means you'll set up in front squat position, but when you lower you'll be going extra-slowly. Your goal is to take a full 5 seconds to lower your torso until your thighs are parallel with the ground. Then you'll hold in that position for 5 full seconds, before pressing back up as quickly as possible. When you're in that bottom position, focus on spreading your knees outwards, honing your squat technique in the process.

5 gentle ways to heal emotionally after a miscarriage

Health
Guilt is tough to avoid after a miscarriage, but even if you drank a margarita, went to hot yoga, dyed your hair, took a nine-hour plane ride, or busted your bum on the ice in your driveway, the miscarriage is most likely not your fault and could not have been prevented. Don't believe the myths that can make the miscarriage even more painful. “There’s nothing you did or didn’t do that caused your miscarriage,” says Alice Domar, PhD, author of Conquering Infertility and executive director of the Domar Center for Mind-Body Health at Boston IVF. Keep in mind that miscarriage is incredibly common: For women in their 20s and 30s, one in five pregnancies ends during the first trimester; that ratio climbs to one in four for women 35 and older, and to one in three for women over 40. Don’t stress yourself out examining with a microscope every little thing you might have done to cause the miscarriage, but do talk to your health care provider to rule out medical problems, such as polycystic ovary syndrome or lupus.

16 Healthy Prerun Meals and Snacks

Health
Your body needs high-octane fuel to run its best. So if you’re wondering what to eat before running, below are some healthy and delicious meals and snacks that can provide the high-quality energy you need to get the most out of your workout. These options are high-carb, low-fat, low-fiber, dietitian-approved and packed with nutrients. Use this as a guide, but listen to your body. Each individual is unique in terms of digestion time, so you may need to eat closer to your workout or a few hours earlier than what’s prescribed here. If you’re exercising for up to an hour at an easy effort, it’s okay to run on empty. But having a small snack or meal of around 100 to 200 calories ahead of time may help you feel energized and strong throughout the workout. These snacks are also ideal before shorter quality workouts, like speed sessions and hill work.

UK plastic surgeons could ban 'Kim Kardashian inspired' butt lifts over safety fears

Health
The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) has said it will vote later Friday on whether the procedure popularly known as the Brazilian butt lift is safe enough to be performed in the UK. © Hero Images/Getty ImagesAn expert panel will assess the latest evidence and decide whether to uphold previous guidance it issued in 2018, which strongly warned surgeons against performing the surgery because of its high fatality rate. If the guidance is upheld it will essentially ban the procedure in the UK, though surgeons could in theory choose to ignore the recommendation. Concern about the procedure, which has been rising in popularity over the past five years, follows a number of cases of serious illness and death. Two Britons are known to have died following the surgery, and it is feared that globally the number of fatalities could be in the hundreds, BAAPS president and plastic surgeon Paul Harris told CNN.

Here’s Exactly What Happens to Your Body During Every Stage of Menopause

Health
Going through menopause is a major milestone—but you may not be aware of how or when your monthly visitor will vanish. For many women, the various stages of menopause (which include perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause) are a mystery until they actually happen. “Every woman will go through the stages a little differently,” says Mary O’Toole, MD, an ob-gyn at Hoag Hospital in Laguna Hills, California. That said, there are certain things you can expect throughout each stage as your estrogen levels decrease and your period finally becomes a thing of the past. Here’s what lies ahead: This is the period leading up to menopause where estrogen and progesterone start to decrease, explains Dr. O’Toole. It can begin as early as your mid-40s and usually lasts for around four years, according to the Cleveland Clinic. “It’s difficult to pinpoint the onset, but irregular menstrual cycles may be the initial sign,” says O’Toole. You can still get pregnant during this time, so it’s important to use contraception if you’re not looking to conceive.

Brain Fog, Mood Swings, and Other Common Signs You’re Entering Menopause

Health
Here’s the thing about menopause: It only happens once (aroundage 51 on average), so everybody who goes through it is experiencing it for the very first time. This can make identifying the symptoms a bit tricky. It also doesn’t help that telltale signs like hot flashes and unpredictable periods can start years before you actually stop ovulating, says Tara Allmen, MD, gynecologist, and author of Menopause Confidential. This is due to “fluctuations in the hormonal output from your ovaries that [usually] start in your 40s,” she explains. The other thing that makes identifying symptoms tricky: There are loads of signs that aren’t obviously related to menopause. (Like trouble focusing.) Plus, each women’s experiences and symptoms are uniquely her own.If you think you could be going through menopause, keep reading. If you identify with any of the signs below, set up an appointment with your OB/GYN. She can tell you for sure if your tampon days are coming to an end, and tell you how to manage and treat any uncomfortable symptoms.

America’s sexually transmitted disease rates are out of control

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are still on the rise in the United States, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). On Tuesday the CDC released a report on statistics from 2018, which indicate historic rates of chlamydia and the worst rates of syphilis and gonorrhea since 1991. Most concerningly, the CDC reports a 40 percent increase in congenital syphilis—a potentially fatal and totally preventable condition where infection passes from a parent to a fetus through the placenta—since 2017. This represents the fifth year in a row that STIs have hit all-time highs.In 2018, Jonathan Mermin, director of the CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention noted that rising infection rates showed we were "sliding backward," with "systems that identify, treat, and ultimately prevent STDs... strained to near-breaking point." The latest report makes it clear those systems have all but crumbled.

While there are plenty of natural remedies for anxiety, one med-free treatment that has been getting a ton of buzz recently is weighted blankets.

The 2019-20 flu shot: What's in it and why?

Health
Every year, scientists around the world do their best to get one step ahead of the flu. How do they do this? They gather the four most popular (slash effective) influenza strains from around the world, inject them into fertilized chicken eggs or mammalian cells, deactivate the virus, mix it with a grab-bag of preservatives and antibiotics and sugars, and then formulate this for a shot or spray. For those science-is-awesome types out there, this is indeed awesome.It’s also complex — something that keeps virologists on their toes every year. Influenza strains constantly mutate but scientists get one shot for the annual vaccine, making their best guess some 30 weeks in advance to get the vaccine out to the public. Meaning, the CDC published the full report on the 2019-20 flu season vaccine weeks ago. Which means it’s actually possible to understand what you’re having injected into yourself and your child (also, your parents if you can).

Do you need to take vitamin D supplements in wintertime? Here’s what the experts say

Health
I get asked this often, especially this time of year, when days get shorter and people spend less time outside. Vitamin D is an important nutrient for your bone health. Furthermore, there’s research to suggest vitamin D supplements could reduce prostate, colon, and skin cancer risk. If you live in places like Alaska or the Northeast, where sun exposure—a source of vitamin D—is appreciably lower, you may benefit from supplements. But too much of it isn’t good, either. Taken in excess, vitamin D becomes a risk factor for some diseases it should protect against—including cancer. Too much can also increase your absorption of calcium, leading to problems such as kidney stones and damage to your heart and blood vessels. The National Academy of Medicine recommends an upper limit of 4,000 international units a day to be safe.

The way we walk may indicate dementia type

Health
More people are developing Alzheimer’s disease in the U.S. every year, with the current number reaching up to 5.8 million patients. It is the most common form of dementia that affect people at age 65 and older. It is important to detect Alzheimer’s disease early. It provides wider access to treatments or therapies that could help reduce its symptoms. Now, a new study suggests there is an easier way to identify when a person is at risk of having certain types of dementia. You just have to look at how they walk. Researchers found that people with Alzheimer’s disease as well as Lewy body dementia have unique gait patterns, or the movement of their body when walking, according to Mercola. “The way we walk can reflect changes in thinking and memory that highlight problems in our brain, such as dementia,” Ríona McArdle, lead researcher and a postdoctoral researcher at Newcastle University's Faculty of Medical Sciences, said.

But today’s watches don’t just tally your miles and remind you that yesterday’s run was a half-minute faster—they can also build customized workouts, create on-the-go color maps, bump your favorite Spotify workout playlists, and more. But the functionality doesn’t stop when the run ends: Most modern running watches can be used to track sleep, heart rate changes, and other health metrics. Of course, some runners might prefer a more minimalist timepiece if they prefer a basic interface and don’t need their data served with the works. Check out the quick reviews below of five of our top smart watches—from simple GPS trackers to the higher-end models that put a virtual computer on your wrist—or scroll deeper for more helpful buying info and full reviews of those models plus other high-ranking options.

Former NASA Scientist “Convinced” We Already Found Life on Mars

Health
We’ve spent decades and billions of dollars to answer one simple question: is there life on Mars?But according to an opinion piece for Scientific American by former NASA scientist Gilbert Levin, we may already have learned we’re not alone in the universe during an experiment Levin led for NASA’s Viking mission to Mars in 1976.NASA sent two separate Viking orbiter and lander pairs to the Red Planet to conduct experiments and return with snapshots — marking the first time the U.S. safely landed a spacecraft on the Red Planet and sent back photos.The smoking gun, according to Levin: the mission detected positive results during the Labeled Release life detection experiment, which he spearheaded.As part of the experiment, the lander mixed a Martian soil sample with a nitrogen-based nutrient solution that was “labeled” with a unique radioactive carbon compound. The theory was that if microorganisms in the soil metabolized the nutrients, it would let off radioactive carbon dioxide gas.

Cyberstalker Locates Victim by Enhancing Reflection in Her Eye

Posting a photo to social media could’ve cost Japanese pop star Ena Matsuoka her life.On September 1, obsessed stalker Hibiki Sato attacked Matsuoka outside her home, dragging her to a dark corner to sexually assault her, according to an Asia Onereport — and, in a creepy digital twist, he found her by analyzing a reflection in her eye in a selfie.Following his subsequent arrest, Sato told authorities he identified a bus stop and other scenery in the eye reflection, then used Google Maps to match it to a real-world location.He said he was even able to estimate the floor the pop star lived on by analyzing the windows in her photos and noting the angle at which sunlight hit her eyes.Celebrity stalkers are nothing new — for as long as there have been celebrities, there have been obsessed fans who worshiped them to a bizarre, sometimes dangerous, extent.

This is why pancreatic cancer is so hard to treat

Health
When Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek announced that he has late-stage pancreatic cancer in March 2019, his fans were stunned. The cancer is incredibly tough to beat, and although Trebek was initially optimistic, he now admits taping the show is more challenging. He'll keep filming as long as his skills don't diminish, but they've started diminishing, he told CTV. "The thought of the pancreatic cancer doesn't frighten me," he says. "I'm 79 years old. So, hey, I've lived a good life, a full life, and I'm nearing the end of that life. I know that."Pancreatic cancer is a stealthy and often lethal opponent. It is the third-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States with a five-year survival rate of just 9 percent, according to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCan). Other notable people who have succumbed to pancreatic cancer include Michael Landon, Steve Jobs, and Patrick Swayze. There are people who you didn't know survived cancer before 30.

This teen had a disease so rare, it didn't have a name.

Health
For the last seven years, a rare neurological disorder ravaged Mitchell Herndon's body.As the condition — a genetic mutation diagnosed in only a few people in the world — robbed the Missouri teen of his ability to walk, took his hearing and then his eyesight, Herndon made a decision: If the disease killed him, he would donate his body to science in the hopes of saving others.Last Wednesday, just days before a potentially life-saving drug would have been made available to him, Herndon, 19, died. Abiding by his wishes, Herndon's family chose to gift his body to Washington University in St. Louis for research into neuro-muscular diseases — something that doctors say will be invaluable for advancing the understanding of more than his own disorder."It's an incredible tool which he has donated. This will have an impact for many people that get identified with his condition in the future, as well as other people with other neurodegenerative conditions" such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or possibly Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, said Dr. Bob Bucelli, the neurologist who treated Herndon for the past year and an associate professor of neurology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. "It's a limitless resource that he's given and incredible what he's offered the medical community by doing that."

4th Grader Refused to Answer Math Problem That Weight-Shamed Another Girl

Usually when you do your homework, the goal is to complete every single problem, even the ones you may not know the answer to. Why? Because you want to better your chances of getting a good grade and maybe snag some participation points. When 10-year-old Utah native Rhythm Pacheco was doing her math homework, she refused to answer one of her teacher's questions—not because she didn't know the answer, skipped it accidentally, or just didn't feel like answering it—but because she felt like the question was morally wrong and shamed another girl's weight.And guess what ... she's right! The question read, "The table to the right shows the weight of three Grade 4 students. How much heavier is Isabel than the lightest student?" Instead of answering "Irene" or "Sue," Rhythm circled the problem and wrote, "WHAT! 'Sorry I won't write this, it's rude."

Dementia diagnoses may be late in women because sex difference: Study

Doctors may be not be diagnosing women as early as men with brain problems associated with early signs of dementia because of how well women typically perform on simple memory tests, a study published Wednesday suggests. © monkeybusinessimages/Getty ImagesWomen generally perform better on verbal memory tests, according to the study published in the peer-reviewed journal Neurology. So when these common tests are used to diagnose mild cognitive impairment, women may be under-diagnosed or diagnosed too late while men may be over-diagnosed or diagnosed too early, the study found.“If women are inaccurately identified as having no problems with memory and thinking skills when they actually have mild cognitive impairment, then treatments are not being started and they and their families are not planning ahead for their care or their financial or legal situations," study author Erin E. Sundermann of the University of California, San Diego, said in a statement.

5 common stomach problems that could signal serious health issues

Health
All of us get a little gassy or stopped up from time to time or feel the burn after a giant Mexican dinner. But there’s a point when these symptoms aren't normal and could even be a sign of something more serious. “An off day here or there, especially if your schedule, diet, or lifestyle has changed, is fine. But if there is a sudden change or one that persists without clear explanation, it’s a good idea to get a gastroenterologist involved,” says James F. Marion, M.D., Professor of Medicine and Gastroenterology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Here’s what to look out for with some of the most common stomach problems, what it could mean, and when to see a doc.If you’ve never had heartburn before (other than after a spicy or super-sized meal) and you’re suddenly experiencing burning on the regular without a specific trigger, it’s time to call your doctor—especially if you have other symptoms like weight loss, the feeling that food is getting stuck in your throat, or blood in your stool. You could be one of the estimated 20 percent of people, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition where stomach acid causes inflammation and narrowing of the esophagus, says Marion. Since heartburn can lead to serious complications including ulcers and asthma, you shouldn’t suffer in silence—the right medications usually nix symptoms.

What You Need to Know About Your Testosterone

Feeling tapped out. Foggy. Just not all that into sex. Gotta be your testosterone, ads would have you believe. And we’re believing it, too, with the number of T-supplement users tripling from the early 2000s through 2016. Don’t get us wrong: Testosterone is one critical hormone. Babies first encounter it in utero, when it triggers the differentiation of boys from girls. In puberty, it contributes to your bone growth and muscle mass, and continues to affect functions including your red-blood-cell production and mood stability.But the message those ads are sending plays right into the economic and social anxieties men are facing. It’s like when anti-anxiety meds such as Valium first came onto the scene, says urologist and MH advisor Elizabeth Kavaler, M.D. “All these middle-aged women were addicted to Valium, because that was the solution to everything. Testosterone has become the new answer for a life of quiet desperation.” More and more of us are feeling the exhaustion of uneasiness. We are being asked to do more with less. We’re just trying to get through the day alive. “Men think, Well, if I just get a little testosterone, I’m going to feel great!” Dr. Kavaler says. “And that’s not the case.”

How to make any workout way more fun

Health
Time flies when you're dancing, but when you're banging out pushups or pumping iron? Time moves like a Friday afternoon. To boost the fun (and calorie burn) of any workout, all you need are a few easy distraction techniques. Women's Health's Next Fitness Star Selena Watkins, the woman behind the boredom-beating High-Intensity Dance Cardio DVD, has some ideas:For total-body sessions, Selena likes to keep things fresh by picking a particular area to concentrate on for one full song. So, say it's triceps. You can choose one move or a few, but either way, you keep doing reps until the track is over. Knowing that you have only three-ish minutes until you're done with that muscle group for the day can help you push through anything.Even Selena's strength workouts move to a beat. "I love playing with an exercise you know inside and out by altering how long you'll spend going up or down the range of motion," she says. "It changes which muscles spend the most time under tension and turns any exercise into a dancelike sequence." Try a song with at least 150 beats per minute (like The Chainsmokers' "Don't Let Me Down") for your lunges. "Keep your rep rhythm tied to the song—it will pick up during the chorus and slow down for the verses, changing the challenge."

This 3-Step Series Proves That Pushups Aren't Easy

Health
You might think that pushups are nothing but the garnish to your workout entrée—but if you take them on in a different, challenging setup, you can get away with nothing but pushups for a tricep and chest-pumping standalone routine. The 3-step pushup series from Men's Health fitness director Ebenezer Samuel, C.S.C.S. isn't just meant to be an afterthought on the side of your push-day workouts "This one is push-day one-stop shopping, either as a nasty workout finisher, or as a quick full workout if you're in a pinch," he says of the series. "This is all about drop sets, and fatiguing our triceps to make standard pushups more challenging." Part of that challenge comes from the pushup variations you'll take on: elevator archer pushups, archer pushups, and standard pushups. The imbalanced positions make the workout tough—then the pure volume of reps also serves as a challenge.

Health Officials Urge Caution in Reducing Opioids for Pain Patients

Health
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration on Thursday instructed doctors to use more caution when taking chronic pain patients off opioid medications, a response to reports that many have been cutting off prescriptions too quickly, in some cases even dismissing patients from their practice.The Department of Health and Human Services published a guide intended to be a course correction of sorts. In 2016, after years of rising addiction rates and deaths from prescription painkiller overdoses, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued nonbinding guidelines for primary care doctors that urged more cautious prescribing. A backlash ensued, particularly from some doctor and patient groups who said the guidelines were hurting people with severe chronic pain, many of whom had been on high doses of opioids for years without becoming addicted.

To lose a pound you need to burn 7,000 calories, not 3,500

Health
With something as challenging as trying to lose weight, it’s nice to rely on things like math and logic to figure out how to do it. For example, if you’ve ever calculated how much weight you’ll lose by cutting out a certain number of calories a day, you know the most famous equation in dieting: one pound of fat = 3,500 calories. Too bad that equation is wrong.It may be right in a strict mathematical sense, like if you burn a pound of fat in a lab, but cutting out 500 calories a day for a week won’t result in a pound of fat loss. We’ve covered this here before: trying to balance calorie intake and burn never quite works out.Now, there’s a new equation in town, or more specifically a calculator called the Body Weight Planner, based on research done by the National Institutes of Health.

Her paranoia and delusions convinced my two brothers and I that something was seriously off, so we staged an intervention.

Dermatologists Say These Are the Best Drugstore Acne Products to Clear Breakouts

Health
If there’s one tie that binds us, it’s the frustration of breakouts. And while you may think that you’re too old to keep dealing with acne, constant hormonal fluctuations, especially for women, are often to blame for this reoccurring skin nuisance. “The majority of acne I see in my practice in women in their 20s, 30s, and 40s is hormonal,” says Meera Sivendran, MD, assistant professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai in New York. These hormonal shifts, such as getting your period, pregnancy, entering perimenopause, (the transition period before menopause when ovaries gradually make less estrogen), and then menopause increase oil production, says Eric Meinhardt, MD, founder and medical director of California Dermatology Specialists. With excess oil, pores are more apt to get clogged with dead skin cells; then, the bacteria that causes pimples, Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), multiplies, causing an inflamed spot. Hello, pimple.

How one doctor lost 125 lbs. in 18 months after his sister's death

Health
At his heaviest, Dr. Kevin Gendreau, 31, a primary care doctor in Fall River, Massachusetts, weighed more than 300 pounds. But after losing his father and then sister to cancer, he started to appreciate how precious his own life was. "As things were starting to look more and more grim, the concept that what I was doing to my body was my choice increasingly solidified," Gendreau told Best Life. That's when his 125-pound weight loss journey began.Back when Gendreau was just 17 years old, he watched on helplessly as his father slowly succumbed to terminal cancer. The experience was devastating, and, like many people, he turned to food for comfort. "I basically began to eat my feelings in sugar and processed carbohydrates and use food as an anti-depressant," he said. "When you eat junk food, your brain releases dopamine and increases serotonin—both 'feel-good' hormones—so it's kind of like a hit of a drug."
