    Drinking between one-and-a-half and three-and-a-half cups of coffee a day could add years to your life, a major study finds. A Chinese research team monitored 171,000 people for seven years and found those who regularly drank coffee were about a third less likely to die than those who did not. It didn't matter whether the coffee was plain or sweetened with sugar, they added. Several studies have pointed to the potential health benefits of coffee from reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes to making someone less likely to be depressed. Scientists suggest this could be because the beans contain antioxidants, helping reduce internal inflammation and cell damage. Scientists have found that drinking up to three-and-a-half cups of coffee every day may lead to someone having a longer life than a non-coffee drinker (stock image) RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next CDC chief insists monkeypox outbreak is NOT out of control...

    While some may see vape and e-cigarette devices as safe alternatives to cigarettes, experts warn that users can develop the devastating condition 'popcorn lung' - and that those who suffer the most severe case are unlikely to survive. Bronchiolitis obliterans, the official medical diagnosis for popcorn lung, occurs when a person's lungs become significantly scarred due to the inhalation of dangerous chemicals or via an infection of some sort.  Experts are warning that many users of electronic nicotine devices - like Juuls - are developing the condition at alarming rates, especially at younger ages where these types of conditions are rare. Dr Panagis Galiatsatos, director of the Tobacco Treatment Clinic at Johns Hopkins University tells DailyMail.com that those who suffer the most severe cases of the condition will likely die from respiratory failure within five years of it developing. Controversy around these devices has reemerged in recent weeks after the Food and Drug Administration chose to pull Juul products from shelves, before allowing the company temporary reprieve as it reevaluated its decision. Experts was that users of vape and e-cigarette nicotine...

    A 19-year-old people smuggler has been sentenced to seven years in prison for his role in the deaths of two Syrian illegal immigrants who suffocated in the back of a van he was driving across the border to Austria. The Eisenstadt court found the 19-year-old people smuggler, a Latvian national, guilty on Monday of people smuggling and actions that led to death and was sentenced to seven years in prison. He was not found guilty of the murder charge the prosecutor had demanded, however. The Latvian pled guilty to the charge of smuggling but not guilty to the charge of murder, and admitted he knew the 30 asylum seekers in the back of his vehicle had been in distress after being locked in the cargo area of a van for eight hours without a break, Austrian newspaper Kleine Zeitung reports. The deaths of the two Syrian nationals took place on October 19th of last year after the Latvian picked up the group of migrants in a forest along the border with Serbia and Hungary and drove them to Austria.

    The family of a Texas man said he was wrongfully identified as the owner of the truck used by human smugglers who left 50 migrants to die inside the vehicle in 103 degree weather along the U.S.-Mexico border.  A San Antonio Fire Department official said they found 'stacks of bodies' and no signs of water in the truck, which was discovered on Monday next to railroad tracks in the city's southern outskirts, close to Interstate 35 which runs to the border.  The truck's license plate and registration linked the vehicle to an Alamo man, but his son-in-law, Isaac Limon, said the information was stolen and that the real truck belonging to his family was out hauling grain in another part of Texas.  'It was a perfect setup,' Limon told the Washington Post. 'The truck is here. I'm looking at it right now.  'Sad to say, but he's a bit of a victim, too, because people believe it was him.'  The truck police found containing 50 dead migrants abandoned on the San Antonio, Texas roadside stole its license plate and registration from...
    A woman, 30, who is expecting a baby with her 60-year-old husband has opened up about the horrific hate that they receive on social media - including trolls who tell them he will be dead by the time their child is five. Larry and Mindy Mikla, from Florida, started dating in 2015; they met after Mindy got into a car accident and Larry, who was a police officer at the time, showed up to help her. They soon fell in love and tied the knot one year later - despite having a three-decade age gap. The couple is now expecting their first child together, but after sharing their happy baby news to social media in December, they started to receive furious backlash from users who told them things like, 'That kid isn't going to have a dad in five to 10 years,' and, 'It's sad the baby won't get to see his dad live long.'

    “Whose blood will spill, whose heart will break? Who’ll be the last to die for a mistake?” — Bruce Springsteen, “Last To Die” And once again: Why? It’s the question we always find ourselves asking in moments like this, the understanding we always seek as bodies lay strewn and the air is rent by shrieks of mourning. But for all that, the answer is no mystery. As is so often the case with America’s miseries, if you seek the origin story, if you follow the twisted roots back to the beginning, you will find people who were desperate to guard the ramparts of White supremacy. For instance, as historian Kevin M. Kruse points out in “The 1619 Project,” we sit in traffic gridlock because suburban voters routinely reject mass transit measures for fear their distant enclaves might become more accessible to people of color from the city centers. So when you survey last week’s too familiar carnage in Uvalde, Texas — two teachers and 19 children slain at an elementary school by a demented teenager with an AR-15 — it...
    The young girl who smeared herself with the blood of one of her slain classmates to avoid being shot said the crazed gunman played 'I want people to die music' as he executed 19 of her classmates, as well as two teachers.  Miah Cerrillo, 11, told CNN that her class was watching the Disney movie Lilo and Stitch because it was the end of the school year when her teacher got an email that there was an active shooter.  But the teacher got the notification too late and as she went to lock the door Ramos was already there and shot through the door window. 11-year-old  Miah Cerrillo (pictured) told CNN that her class was watching the movie Lilo and Stitch when her teacher got an email that there was an active shooter Cerrillo (right, with her mom) suffered from minor injuries and was briefly treated in the hospital for bullet fragments in her back.

    A 26-year-old researcher who drunk a shot of dysentery-triggering bacteria for a vaccine trial was left rushing for the toilet and feeling so ill he 'wanted to die'. Jake Eberts, from Washington D.C., was paid $7,000 to ingest the shigella bacteria — often spread by contaminated water — at Maryland University last month. Within three days he was waking up early with a feeling of 'funny business' in his stomach and having to rush to the bathroom. Over the next 48 hours he faced stomach cramps, bloody diarrhea, a fever of 103F, and felt so exhausted that lifting any of his limbs was a 'Herculean effort'. Nurses were quick to give him fluids to replace what was being lost, and put him on antibiotics to help fight the infection. He recovered in four days. Mr Ebert was infected in a challenge trial, where participants get an experimental jab or placebo and before being exposed to the disease they were inoculated against. He had received two jabs about a month apart, and was incarcerated for 11 days until the infection cleared....

    ROME — Ukrainian Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk has condemned the looting of Ukraine by its Russian invaders, warning that the stolen property will “burn” in the hands of those who take it. Marking “the fiftieth day of nationwide resistance of Ukraine against the Russian occupiers,” Archbishop Shevchuk released a video message Thursday denouncing Russia’s ongoing attacks and praising Ukraine’s response. Signs of new life bring hope to the besieged nation, the archbishop observes, noting that “storks have arrived in the villages and towns of Ukraine, over burnt rubble, over destroyed houses, over new cemeteries.” “The storks are building their nests. Spring is coming, life goes on,” he states. “Ukrainians know how to survive and with their vitality and ability to withstand war, they are giving hope.” With Easter hope in the risen Christ, “Ukraine stands. Ukraine lives. Ukraine fights,” he declares. Reflecting upon God’s Seventh Commandment, which commands not to steal, the archbishop warns that the one “who is not respectful, does not respect the work of his neighbor, its fruits, who does not respect the private property of man,...
    Things got tense when Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki if President Joe Biden is “waiting for people to die” before enacting sanctions on Russia. The president gave a speech Friday afternoon updating Americans on the dire situation in Ukraine, saying he believes Vladimir Putin has already made the decision to invade Ukraine. At a White House press briefing hours before Biden’s speech, Heinrich asked why not impose sanctions now, instead of after Russia invades, then drew Ms. Psaki’s ire by pressing the point in stark terms: MS. HEINRICH: And on Ukraine, the sanctions, we’ve learned, don’t include SWIFT, they don’t target energy, so the impacts to other countries are mitigated. You guys have attributed this cyberattack to Russia, and you’re warning that the prospect of war is — or peace, rather, is pretty dim. So, at what point do you break away from the strategy and say it’s not working and do something else — impose some of these sanctions now? MS. PSAKI: Well, I think as we’ve talked about a little bit in...

Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.The three former Minneapolis police officers who were at the scene when Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd began testifying this week in a federal criminal trial, where they stand accused of violating Floyd’s civil rights. While Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck, J. Alexander Kueng, a rookie cop, knelt on Floyd’s back. Another rookie, Thomas Lane, held his legs down. And a third officer, Tou Thao, kept bystanders back. None of them stepped in to stop the killing. Now, two of the former officers are charged with failing to intervene against Chauvin’s unnecessary violence, and all three are charged with failing to provide Floyd proper medical care. Their defense lawyers argue that the Minneapolis Police Department provided inadequate training and taught them to follow orders from their superiors. Chauvin, who was convicted of murder and manslaughter last year,...

    People who have been triple-vaccinated against Covid are 93 per cent less likely to die from the virus than the unjabbed, latest official figures show.  A report by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) looked at 70,000 coronavirus deaths in England between July and December 2021. The death rate was 23.6 per 100,000 for the fully boosted, compared to the 356.5 per 100,000 rate in the unvaccinated during the period. Adjusting for age, statisticians found having two doses also reduced the risk by 81 per cent during the same period.   The period does not cover the full Omicron wave, which may influence the findings. The new variant has made two doses significantly weaker, but Omicron itself is much milder than past strains.  In the ONS report, people were classified based on how many jabs they received and whether there had been more or less than 21 days since their last dose. The risk of dying was consistently lower every month from September for people who had a booster since third doses started being rolled out. More than 37.4million people in...
    Look at risk factors for getting severely ill from COVID-19 and/or dying from the disease, and you might find that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you live — an infectious disease expert notes that being unvaccinated puts people in the most danger for severe outcomes. “And that’s regardless of your age, gender, underlying comorbidity; it really is vaccination status that’s the greatest predictor of your outcome,” said Dr. Greg Schrank, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Looking at people middle aged and older, COVID-19 claims the most victims from populations that are unvaccinated, and then fully vaccinated people who haven’t gotten booster shots are more vulnerable people, such as the oldest adults and those with underlying medical conditions. For example, unvaccinated Virginians last week were hospitalized at a rate 21.1 times than that of fully vaccinated Virginians. And, getting a booster is proven to improve outcomes. Compare someone who’s fully vaccinated with someone who’s fully vaccinated and has received a booster, and there’s almost a sixfold difference in the rates of...
    NEW YORK — Who will take your pet when you die? The question often doesn’t have an easy answer, especially for ill or older people headed to residential nursing care or assisted living. During the pandemic, specialized rescue, advocacy and adoption services run by volunteers are trying to fill the void, one pet at a time. Leaders in the small movement said the past couple of years have opened the eyes of many. “The thing about COVID is a lot of people are thinking, I can’t be guaranteed to be around forever. A lot more people are trying to make plans in advance, which is the best thing to do because unfortunately, a lot of people wait until they’re in hospice or there’s a desperate situation,” said Amy Shever, founder and director of 2nd Chance 4 Pets in suburban Sacramento, California. The number of pets surrendered to shelters due to caretaker health or death is up from 7.3% in 2009 to 10.2% during the pandemic, according to the Best Friends Network of thousands of public and private shelters, rescue groups...
    Having a recent tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis can skyrocket a person's likelihood of dying from COVID-19, a new study finds. Researchers from the California Department of Health gathered statewide data to identify how much of an increased risk of death TB patients suffered during the pandemic. They found a person who was diagnosed with both TB and Covid within 30 days was 20 times as likely to die than someone who only had the virus, and twice as likely to die when compared to someone diagnosed with TB before the pandemic. The findings show the high risk people with TB - a condition that can severely damage a person's lungs - face during the pandemic. Researchers found a direct correlation between how recent a TB diagnosis is and the likelihood of dying of Covid. A person diagnosed with TB within 30 days of Covid infection are 20 times as likely to die than the average person, and twice as likely to die as someone infected with TB before the pandemic TB is a potentially devastating bacterial infection that can cause permanent...
    Long Covid may lead to an increased risk of death in the year after a patient's diagnosis, a new study finds. Researchers at the University of Florida analyzed health records from over 13,000 patients, following them for 12 months.  Patients who had severe Covid symptoms were 2.5 times as likely to die over the next year after their diagnosis compared with those who tested negative for Covid. Younger patients (under age 65) who suffered severe symptoms had a particularly high mortality risk at 3.3 times as likely to die as patients under age 65 who tested negative. The study indicates that there's 'a substantial risk of dying' from unrecognized Covid complications, the study's lead author said. Vaccination can prevent such complications.  Patients hospitalized with severe Covid symptoms have an increased risk of dying - from all causes - in the next year, a new study finds. Pictured: Healthcare workers treat a Covid patient in an ICU in Tarzana, California, September 2021 It's now well-known among scientists and doctors that Covid infections can lead to symptoms for many weeks or months...
    DOUBLE-jabbed people are 32 times less likely to die of Covid than those who are not vaccinated, figures reveal. The welcome level of protection was revealed in a comparison of virus deaths rates in England by the Office for National Statistics. 1 Double-jabbed people are 32 times less likely to die of Covid than those who aren’t vaccinated Dr Peter English, a retired public health doctor, said: “These are among the best available data on the effectiveness of vaccines. “The important message is that vaccination is highly effective against death from Covid-19. You are 32 times less likely to die if you have been fully vaccinated than if you are unvaccinated. “And a single dose also provides some protection, although less than two doses.” The ONS study, adding yet more evidence of the life-saving effect of jabs, looked at Covid death rates between January and September this year. It said rates were “consistently lower” for the vaccinated among victims recorded as dying from a current Covid infection. About 8.1million have now had a third dose to top up their...
    TERRIFIED students called their parents to tell them they loved them after their train crashed and filled with smoke like a “terror attack”.

    Unvaccinated Americans are more likely to die of non-Covid causes than those who got their shots, a new report finds. Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) compared deaths among those aged 12 and older who got any of the three authorized vaccines in the U.S. to teens and adults who did not. Deaths due to causes unrelated to the virus were up to three times more likely in unvaccinated people than those who got either the Pfizer or Moderna Covid vaccines. And non-COVID-19 fatalities were nearly twice as likely among Americans who were not jabbed compared to those who received the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The CDC says the findings provide evidence that vaccines do not increase the risk of death and may suggest that vaccinated people are overall healthier than unvaccinated people. A new CDC report finds there were 1.11 deaths per 100 people per year among an mRNA unvaccinated comparison group (dark purple) compared to 0.35 and 0.34 for Pfizer and Moderna recipients (red and light blue), respectively. Fatalities were also higher among...
    PEOPLE who take statins could be 12 per cent less likely to die from coronavirus, new research suggests. Statins are prescribed for lowering cholesterol in the blood and are a recommended and common intervention. 1People who take statins could be less likely to die from Covid, new research suggestsCredit: Getty - Contributor Researchers at the Karolinska Institutet followed 963,876 residents of Stockholm over the age of 45 between March and November 2020. During that time, 2,545 individuals died from Covid - including 765 (0.5 per cent) of the statin users and 1,780 (0.2 per cent) of the non-users. And after accounting for factors that would make those people more at risk of Covid, those who took the pills were still less likely to die. The results were based on analyses of data on the participants' prescribed medication and healthcare and from the Cause of Death Register. Rita Bergqvist, the study’s co-author and a medical student at the Karolinska Institute, said: “Our results suggest that statin treatment can have a moderate prophylactic effect on Covid-19 mortality.” Co-first author Viktor...
    A 51-year-old woman in Colombia will become the first person suffering from a non-terminal illness to be allowed to die by euthanasia this Sunday.  Martha Sepúlveda has been battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease,  since November 2018, and received approval two months ago to die by euthanasia. 'I know that the owner of life is God, meaning that nothing moves without His will,' the devout Catholic told Noticias Caracol in an interview that ran this week. 'Suddenly for many people I am very wrong, but I think He is allowing this. He is rewarding me in a certain way because I am not going to be bedridden.' Sepúlveda first sought medical care after she started feeling weakness in her thumb, which caused her problems with doing simple tasks such as holding a pen or a computer mouse, according to the Washington Post. In the months that followed her diagnosis, Sepúlveda's nervous system disease weakened her muscles. By 2020, her condition had worsened to the point that she was contemplating dying by euthanasia, a practice legally recognized in the...
    Will anyone who knew you when you walked the earth be there to bury or cremate you when your time comes? For too many in the D.C. region and around the U.S., the answer is: No. A six-month investigation by The Washington Post found that tens of thousands of people die in the country every year with no one to bury or cremate them, forcing state, county and local governments to handle those arrangements. Maryland is one of the few states that tracks the number of unclaimed bodies. The State Anatomy Board told WTOP that 2,510 bodies went unclaimed last year. That’s approximately 3% to 4% of all deaths recorded in the state. The board said the number of people who die without anyone claiming their remains has increased steadily over the past few years. On average, Maryland spends between $1 million and $2 million a year managing the bodies left unclaimed. Virginia doesn’t track the number of unclaimed bodies in the state. It leaves that, along with the final handling of remains, to the commonwealth’s counties, cities and towns....
    BOSTON (CBS) — On what is the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, Gov. Charlie Baker spoke Saturday about the importance of remembering the lives lost. “The most important point I’d like to make today is how important it is for all of us, every year, at this time, to remember those who were lost,” Gov. Baker said at the annual American Red Cross 9/11 Day of Service Blood Drive at Fenway Park. “There’s an old expression about how we die twice. We die once when we actually die, and again when people stop talking about us. For many people, this day matters because they lost someone on this day. And it’s important to them that we never forget.” READ MORE: 9/11 20th Anniversary To Be Remembered In Massachusetts With Several Events The blood drive event at Fenway is just one of several events across Massachusetts Saturday commemorating the attacks.

Linda Rose Tripp was an American civil servant. Tripp secretly recorded intern Monica Lewinsky's boasts about having an affair with former president Bill Clinton, before handing it over to investigators. Lewinsky claimed she had sexual encounters with the married president, then aged 49, on nine occasions, until March 1997. She later claimed in an explosive documentary that she deliberately exposed her underwear during an Oval Office bash to get Clinton’s attention. 2Linda Tripp was an American civil servantCredit: AFP - Getty Lewinsky confided about the relationship to Tripp - her defense department co-worker, who secretly recorded telephone conversations.

    Some progressives are cheering on an Alabama doctor who said going forward he will refuse to treat patients who aren’t vaccinated against COVID-19. Dr. Jason Valentine, a physician at Mobile’s Diagnostic and Medical Clinic Infirmary Health, recently shared he will no longer see patients who aren’t vaccinated against the coronavirus beginning Oct. 1. Valentine said people have no excuse not to be vaccinated against the virus and he doesn’t want to watch people die from it, AL.com reported Tuesday. “If they asked why, I told them COVID is a miserable way to die and I can’t watch them die like that,” Valentine said. He added that three of his unvaccinated patients had responded to the move by asking him where they could go to get vaccinated: “No conspiracy theories, no excuses. Just where do they go.” “We do not yet have any great treatments for severe disease, but we do have great prevention with vaccines. Unfortunately, many have declined to take the vaccine, and some end up severely ill or dead,” reads a letter Valentine posted online and will soon...

    CNN anchor Don Lemon went off on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over the latest anti-mask rhetoric to emanate from the epicenter of the Delta surge. On Wednesday night’s edition of Don Lemon Tonight, the host took part in his first segment to talk about the dire situation, telling viewers “hospitals in hotspots across the country are full to capacity. People are dying, needlessly. Even though we have all the vaccines we could possibly ever need, even though we could be protecting children who are too young to be vaccinated simply by wearing masks.” He then played a clip of President Joe Biden’s speech decrying politicians “trying to turn public safety measures that as children wearing masks in school into political disputes for their own political gain, some even trying to take power away from local educators by banning masks in school.” “It shouldn’t be about politics,” Lemon said.  “The president is right, some governors are putting their own political gain ahead of children’s lives, really of their constituents’ lives.” “Like Texas Governor Greg Abbott who issued an executive order banning...
    O.J. Simpson says a he thought his time had run out when he was left gasping for air after a tough battle with COVID-19 last year left him gasping for air.  In an interview with The Athletic, Simpson recalled fighting the virus and said he considered what would happen once he was gone.   'When I had COVID, I almost couldn't get out of bed,' Simpson said. 'I made it to my balcony, trying to breathe. I couldn't catch my breath.' 'I felt vulnerable and for the first time thought I might be near the end,' he added. 'Since that day, I have wondered. Do I want to be buried? Do I want to be cremated?

    July 28, 2021July 28, 2021 0 In an interview for the program Say it Here with the Community of José Pernalete, David De la Zerda, doctor pulmonologist from Jackson Memorial Hospital, detailed that currently people are becoming infected very quickly in the state of Florida. In the opinion of the experts, those who are being infected at this time are people who are not vaccinated against Covid-19. “We are seeing an increase in infected patients, they are not vaccinated (…) At this time we have quite a few patients who have covid-19 in hospitals and that is why we are restricting visits,” he said. He recalled that people who are vaccinated and are being reinfected are not entering hospitals, because they created antibodies and they get a simple flu. “Those who are vaccinated are getting a simple flu, these vaccinated patients do not represent even 2% in hospitals,” he explained. He stressed that it is necessary to take everything calmly, not make big changes in the restrictions, because it is necessary to continue with the protection measures among...

    What is the background? While concerned parents gathered outside Luther Jackson Middle School in northern Virginia last week for a "Stop CRT Rally," Michelle Leete — the vice president of training at the Virginia PTA, vice president of communications for the Fairfax County PTA, and first vice president of the Fairfax County NAACP — spoke to counterprotesters who support CRT. During her diatribe, Leete seemingly said of critical race theory opponents, "Let them die!" So, let's meet and remain steadfast, steadfast, in speaking truth, tearing down double standards, and refuting double talk. Let's not allow any double downing on lies. Let's prepare our children for a world they deserve. Let's deny this off-key band of people that are anti-education, anti-teacher, anti-equity, anti-history, anti-racial reckoning, anti-opportunities, anti-help people, anti-diversity, anti-platform, anti-science, anti-change agent, anti-social justice, anti-health care, anti-worker, anti-LGBTQ+, anti-children, anti-health care, anti-worker, anti-environment, anti-admissions policy change, anti-inclusion, anti-live-and-let-live people. Let them die. Don't let these uncomfortable people, don't let these uncomfortable people deter us from our bold march forward. “Let them die,” says @FairfaxNAACP leader Michelle...

    One of the leaders of the NAACP has been spotted outside a Virginia middle school denouncing opponents of critical race theory and saying 'let them die'. NAACP Vice President Michelle Leete - who is also a member Virginia state PTA - gave a fiery speech to a crowd outside a school board meeting at Luther Jackson Middle School in Falls Church, Fairfax County. She claimed a group of parents opposed to the teaching of CRT who were also at the school protesting were 'anti-opportunities, anti-help people and anti-diversity.'  The PTA said Friday night that they would send members  - presumably including Leete - to learn about the 'impact of the words we use'. Footage of Leete's speech was recorded by Parents Defending Education, a group which opposes the teaching of Critical Race Theory.  Leete can be heard saying: 'So let's meet and remain steadfast in speaking truth, tearing down double standards, and refuting double talk.

    People with an active cancer diagnoses are more likely to die from COCVID-19 than people who have either recovered from the disease, or never had it, a new study suggests. Researchers from New York University studied medical records from the school's Langone Medical Center to review coronavirus patient outcomes for those who have cancer or had recovered from cancer.  They found that people with tumors were 70 percent more likely to die from the virus that has killed more than 598,000 Americans. Additionally, patients with blood based, or hematologic, cancers were the most likely to die from the virus. Patients who had recovered from cancer but received cancer therapy in the past three months were not at an increased likelihood to die from COVID-19. Cancer patients are up to 70% more likely to die of Covid-19 than their peers, according to an NYU study. People who have recovered from cancer are not more likely to die, though For the study, published in the journal CANCER, the team sifted through 4,200 cases of COVID-19 that the hospital treated since the pandemic...
    (CNN)People with diabetes who had trouble falling or staying asleep were 87% more likely to die of any cause over the next nine years than people without diabetes or sleep problems, a new study finds. More women than men struggle to fall asleep in both Europe and the US, study findsThe study, published Tuesday in the Journal of Sleep Research, analyzed data from nearly half a million middle-aged participants in the UK Biobank Study, which houses in-depth genetic and health information on UK residents.After controlling for medical and lifestyle issues that might also affect sleep, such as age, gender, weight, smoking, depression and other preexisting conditions, the study found that people who slept poorly but did not have diabetes were 11% more likely to die within the nine-year followup period of the study than people without diabetes who slept well."People with diabetes, but not sleep disturbances, were 67% more likely to die compared to people with neither diabetes or sleep issues, and 87% more likely to die if they had both diabetes and frequent sleep disturbances," said study author Kristen...

    Deaths from Covid in Florida have been trending younger, Fox 13 in Tampa reports, in part because the older population is more likely to get vaccinated. “You can’t describe how horrifying it is to see a 35-year-old person, or 24-year-old mother gasping for breath,” Dr. John Sinnott told Tampa reporter Evan Axelbank on Friday. “A lot of them have no underlying conditions. Often the ones that die have an underlying condition, but many of the seriously ill ones do not,” said Sinnott, who is a doctor in Tampa General Hospital’s ICU. Florida, its residents and visitors, and its Republican governor have been under fire from the press over the duration of the Covid pandemic, even as deaths and infections and scandal have rocked bluer states like New York. The big retirement state had a large portion of population considered among the most at-risk, but the trend now is toward people who simply haven’t taken the vaccine. The age group Dr. Sinnott singles out for unvaccinated adults dying from the coronavirus are those around 50 years old. “Since the pandemic started,...
    GOOD Morning Britain has been hit with Ofcom complaints after Dr Hilary Jones hilariously told a pub landlord who threw out Sir Keir Starmer: "Sitck to pulling pints". Rod Humphris went viral when a video of him refusing to serve the Labour leader appeared online, and appeared on the breakfast show last week to discuss what had happened. 5Dr Hilary called out the pub landlord for his shock commentsCredit: ITV On the programme, Rod aired his controversial views on coronavirus lockdowns, branding the deadly illness a "seasonal flu" - adding that lockdowns should never have happened because mostly elderly people die from the illness. Dr Hilary and host Susanna Reid expressed their concern for his comments at the time, but Ofcom received 80 complaints over the confrontation - claiming that the guest had not been treated fairly. The TV watchdog confirmed: "Viewers complained about treatment of the publican who had ejected Keir Starmer from his pub." Rod runs The Raven pub in Bath, and he was caught on video being held back by security guards as he angrily ejected Sir...
    COVID-19 vaccinations are not a major factor when a life insurance agency determines prices, but that could change if immunized people continue to die from the coronavirus, an expert told the DCNF. 74 fully immunized people have died from COVID-19 and over 5,800 vaccinated people have tested positive for the virus, according to the CDC.  “Vaccines don’t affect prices at all. They don’t ask if you’re vaccinated, they only ask if you’ve been exposed or have exhibited COVID-19 symptoms,” Jason Veirs, owner and president of Insurance Experts Solutions, told the DCNF. The deaths of fully immunized people from COVID-19 could impact the costs of life insurance if vaccinated individuals continue dying from the virus, experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation. COVID-19 vaccinations are not a major factor when a life insurance agency determines prices, but that could change if immunized people continue to die from the coronavirus, an expert told the DCNF. Despite the number of fully immunized people that have died from the virus, life insurance carriers do not consider whether a person has been vaccinated...
    New York : One of the most devastating elements of the coronavirus pandemic has been the inability to personally care for loved ones who have become ill. Time and again, grieving family members have recounted how more devastating their loved one’s death was because they were unable to hold their hand to provide a comforting, familiar presence in their final days and hours. Some had to say your last goodbye through a mobile phone screen held by a healthcare worker. Others resorted to the use of walkie-talkies or to greet family members through the windows. How can you overcome the overwhelming pain and guilt that comes when you think of a loved one dying alone? I don’t have an answer to this question. But the work of a hospice doctor named Christopher Kerr, with whom I wrote the book “Death Is But a Dream: Finding Hope and Meaning at Life’s End “ (“Death is but a dream: finding hope and meaning at the end of life”), could offer some comfort. Unexpected visitors Early in his career, Dr. Kerr was...
    Americans who are overweight or obese make up more than 73 percent of those who die of the virus, new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data reveal. People who were obese made up nearly half of all fatalities among hospitalized coronavirus patients logged in the new report.   Those figures align with the overall rates of unhealthy weights in the US. About 74 percent of Americans are overweight, including nearly 43 percent who are obese.  It comes after a World Health Organization (WHO) report revealed that 90 percent of COVID-19 deaths have occurred in countries where half the population is obese, and yet another study showed that two-thirds of hospitalizations for coronavirus were attributable one of four conditions, including obesity.  Obese people are now eligible to get COVID-19 vaccines in many states where access has been expanded to allow people with chronic conditions to get their shots.  But the mounting data suggests that if Americans had healthier diets and habits, the US might not have had the highest COVID-19 death toll in the world.  As BMI increased, so...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki seemed to agree with a reporter who suggested President Joe Biden didn’t go far enough by decrying the “Neanderthal thinking” of removing coronavirus restrictions around the country. As Psaki conducted her latest press briefing on Thursday, she addressed the claims critics raised against the president by suggesting he called Republican state leaders “Neanderthals.” After clearing up Biden’s remarks, Psaki was asked “why doesn’t the president consider ratcheting up his rhetoric” in response to people in red states who refuse to follow the science of pandemic safety. “Why doesn’t he think about saying ‘folks, here’s the deal, if you don’t wear your mask, people are gonna die because of you,” Psaki was asked, and she recognized the attention-grabbing premise as “well noted.” “I will say, the president has been clear that if people wear masks for 100 days, 60,000 lives could be saved,” Psaki continued. “He also though does not believe that people of any state, or any American, should be hurt by the guidance of their leadership. So that’s why he’s spoken directly to...
