What is Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)? *******www.footandanklecare**** Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D) is a serious circulatory condition where clogged or narrowed arteries cause poor circulation to the arms, legs, brain or kidneys. It occurs most often in the lower extremities, causing decreased blood flow to the legs and feet. Just like buildup in the heart, clogged arteries in the lower extremities can cause stroke or heart attack. Over 10 million Americans have P.A.D. and, left untreated, P.A.D. is fatal 30% of the time within a five-year period.* Fortunately, today there is a non-invasive technology that can determine the presence of P.A.D. PADnet + is a P.A.D. test that can be completed in 15-20 minutes during a regular office visit. For patients with increased risk factors, including those being 50 years of age or older with a history of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or smoking, being informed about this arterial disease is especially essential. Leg pain and discoloration of the toes or feet are possible symptoms of P.A.D. It is important to note, however, that many people with P.A.D. do not experience any symptoms. Testing can help determine if you have P.A.D. and whether medical or surgical treatment is necessary.

Of all the populations in the country, African-Americans have the highest cancer death rate and the shortest survival rate from the time of diagnosis of any ethnic group. *******bit.ly/bLbai2 To help address these health disparities and investigate the reasons why this population is more at risk, the Department of Health Disparities Research at MD Anderson established Project CHURCH to "Create a Higher Understanding of Cancer Research and Community Health." Project CHURCH began in December 2008 as a three-year study to investigate behavioral, social and environmental risk factors that contribute to cancer-related health disparities between population groups. The study recruited 1,500 participants from Windsor Village United Methodist Church, one of Houston's largest African-American churches. Participants receive prevention services, referrals, educational materials and navigation assistance to health services and resources. Lead investigator on the study, Lorna Haughton McNeill, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Health Disparities Research talks with Pastor Irv White about the need for such a study and the potential impact on the participants ants and the community.

BY MOLLY BOLAND ANCHOR ALEX HOLLEY You're watching multisource science video news analysis from Newsy New information in the world of health might prove a common cause of death - Atherosclerosis -- also known as the hardening of arteries, is not just a modern disease. A recent discovery showed the disease has been -- well … hiding under wraps. “It turns out heart disease has been a problem for thousands of years. Recently researchers took a closer look at a 3,500-year-old mummy and found out this Egyptian princess along with more than a dozen other mummies suffered from a buildup of plaque in the arteries.” (KNVX) In today’s world, fatty foods, smoking, and a lifestyle lacking exercise can all lead to heart disease. But for ancient Egyptians, without automobiles, people exercised often. They ate fruits, vegetables and lean meat. But if this same disease was common even in that lifestyle, doctors are wondering if they’re missing something. The LA Times quotes researcher and cardiologist Gregory S. Thomas on the study. “It may be that humans ‘are predisposed to atherosclerosis … that it is part of our genetic makeup.’" Researchers scanned nearly fifty mummies -- about half showed signs of hardening arteries. Almost all of them were from ancient Royal families. Bloomberg quotes cardiologist Randall Thompson on this factor. “The specimens had all been members of the upper class when alive, so they may have suffered from the same higher standard of living that affects humans today. They ate more meat than most of the population and were likely less active than the common laborer of the period...” The Kansas City Star reports most people today - have some form of the condition by their fifties. Egyptians were also more likely to experience Atherosclerosis with age. Cardiologists say infections or malaria could be responsible. Science Magazine explains and quotes one of them... “‘...all that infection might have really revved up the [ancient Egyptians'] inflammatory response,’ … Inflammation helps to remove the agents of infection and promote healing, but older individuals may have paid a steep price for it: high levels of inflammatory response can contribute to the development of atherosclerosis.” Scientists say the next step is to scan more mummies from lower classes in Egypt and identify original risk factors of the heart disease and how they’ve changed over time.

BY LIZ REED You're watching multisource health news analysis from Newsy Dentists and doctors are warning -- think twice before gettin’ down. A new study suggests oral sex is the leading cause of oral cancer in non-smoking men in the U.S.. But how does sex lead to cancer? It’s a nasty sexually transmitted virus called HPV. Right now, about 20 million Americans have HPV, but because many never see symptoms, many don’t know they have it. KDSK breaks it down: Repoter: “When an HPV infection doesn't clear, or you're exposed multiple times by multiple partners, some people will go on to develop genital warts, or even cancer. Doctor: "The more times you are exposed, the greater the chance that you may develop cancer, just from a probability statement." KOIN identifies teen sexual attitudes as the source of the rapid spread. One dentist tells them if society doesn’t change, we’ll be dealing with a pandemic. Reporter: “Many teenagers who engage in oral sex don’t consider it to be real sex and view it as more casual. Dr. Oh says if that doesn’t change it might lead to a HPV epidemic and more cases of oral cancer.” Dentist: “80% of the population will eventually have HPV which is very scary to think about.” Dentist News Network reveals the biggest threat facing oral cancer patients are the dentists. Those who only perform selective cancer screenings based on common risk factors like age and genetics don’t realize the HPV threat. “Unfortunately, pre-screening still occurs in many dental offices because professionals are unaware of the new risk factor, HPV. And although it was reasonable in the past to pre-screen based on common risk factors, HPV now debunks this concept since HPV causes cancer in individuals that do not have the traditional risk factors. Everyone is at risk.” But if HPV vaccines have been approved since 2006, why wasn’t there a bigger push to get teens vaccinated? A contributor for AOL scrutinizes the manufactures’ one-sided view of the issue: “The massive push to vaccinate girls and women between the ages of 11 and 26 against HPV should have included boys and men from the beginning... But at the time [the vaccine] was licensed, there wasn't such an awareness about head or oral cancers or a willingness to accept that males played a part in the transmission of the virus.” According to the Center for Disease Control, only half of people who've been diagnosed with oral cancer will live longer than five years.

*******tinyurl****/3s5ey5y/ One common factor of infertility is an early menopause. This is fairly common with heavy smokers, chemotherapy treatment, and those that are exposed to heavy radiations. This is also one of the top reasons why older women can't get pregnant. There are also some underlying medical problems that prevent a couple from having a child. Thyroid problems and undiagnosed diabetes can all lead to infertility. An undiagnosed STD can also case infertility. Yet, no matter how numerous the factors of infertility there is, there are still 25 to 30% cases of infertility which the reason behind was never found. This, according to doctors is due to lack of diagnosis. The bottom line is no matter how healthy you and your partner may be, that doesn't give you a 100% guarantee of having a child. The reasons for infertility are not always observable. So when should you ask for help getting pregnant? According to the American Association of Reproductive Medicine, if a couple has not achieved pregnancy after one year of unprotected sex, they should seek professional help getting pregnant. Also, if a woman is more than 35 years of age, she shouldnt wait for long. If you or your partner have any risk factors or symptoms of infertility, then waiting is no longer a good option . Like if a woman has irregular periods or if either partner has a history of sexually transmitted diseases, seeking help right away makes sense. Watch the next clip and be amazed by the facts about pregnancy. You can also visit the site *******tinyurl****/3s5ey5y/ or click the link below. *******tinyurl****/3s5ey5y/
