Cold-like infections make 'cough receptors' in the airways more sensitive, making asthmatics more prone to bouts of coughing and wheezing, reveal scientists presenting their findings at the Society for General Microbiology's Spring Conference in Dublin. The work could lead to drugs that reduce virus-induced coughing in those suffering chronic lung diseases
Sugar should be controlled like alcohol and tobacco to protect public health, according to a team of UCSF researchers, who maintain in a new report that sugar is fueling a global obesity pandemic, contributing to 35 million deaths annually worldwide from non-communicable diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Dieting postmenopausal women who want to avoid losing muscle as they lose fat should pay attention to a new University of Illinois study. Adding protein throughout the day not only holds hunger pangs at bay so that dieters lose more weight, it keeps body composition -- the amount of fat relative to muscle -- in better proportion.
A blood protein known as surfactant protein-D (SP-D), which is mainly synthesised in the lungs, has been described as "a good predictor" of cardiovascular disease following a large study in North America. Reporting the study online June 8 in the European Heart Journal, the investigators said that circulating SP-D levels were clearly associated with CVD and total mortality in patients with angiographically diagnosed coronary artery disease independent of other well established risk factors (such as age, smoking, cholesterol and C-reactive protein levels).
Heart function may be affected in people with Type 2 diabetes as early as adolescence, according to a new study that is being presented at The Endocrine Society's 93rd Annual Meeting in Boston.
Dear Tango Nutrition, I am writing today to comment on one of your formulas, FemmePhase. I am 52 years old and going through menopause. For the past two years, I have had a pretty rough time with hot flashes. Sometimes, they get so bad that I have to stop what I’m doing and take a break until they pass.
Dear Pure Tango Company, Before discovering your fabulous product, GingiPhase, my gums were in critical condition. My dentist had informed me that the pockets were very large, ranging in size up to nine. The cost would be astronomical, not to mention the discomfort and long hours of dentistry to better this condition.
GingiPhase really worked for me. I had pockets from 3-6 mm all over, and last September the dental hygienist told me I would need some rather unpleasant procedures to deal with this issue if it didn’t get better (I’m already getting cleanings every four months instead of the typical six). I got three bottles of GingiPhase...
I have had laser surgery to help with loose teeth, including one near a back molar that has shifted on an angle. There was some bone loss and receding of my gums with a slight amount of bleeding. When taking GingiPhase, on a scale of 10, the tooth looseness improved from a 5 to a 1, so I am very pleased with that.
We learned about SleepCycle in the Alamo Valley Press. The thing that caught our attention was that emergency room workers use it. I bought some for me and my son Malcolm. It seems like I go to sleep faster now. When I wake up I feel more relaxed. And also more wide awake.
I began taking Tango’s OsteoPhase® and Herbal Boost® in late summer 2008 to address my bone density issues. During past years I had fractured my femur falling off a bike, and cracked my pelvis tripping on a rock and falling. Both events required assiduous efforts to recover and strengthen.
