Will health sensors make humans immortal?

Not so fast! We need to get from here to there. Today, health/behavior monitoring and quantification sensors are all the rage. The Fitbit, a wearable sensor, is one of the more popular wearable tech devices for tracking your health. Fitbit tracks your activity (steps), diet, and even your sleep patterns. You can interact with the Fitbit using a series of tapping sequences and the Fitbit syncs all your data with your phone and computer. Then the process is to quantify, analyze, and optimize your wake and sleep life. Doing all this will not help you avoid your ultimate demise, but it could contribute to a longer life, and better yet, one where you're in better health along your life's time-line. The concept is that if you are monitoring your activity, food, and sleep, you can make adjustments to improve these areas; thus better health. The Fitbit Flex is only $99!

Head of Rio lab: Security paramount for Olympic doping tests

Yahoo Health: July 29, 2016
By Paulo Prada and Pedro Fonseca RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Security is the top focus for the laboratory that will conduct doping exams at the upcoming Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the lab's director said Friday, amid global scrutiny following the recent scandal surrounding Russian athletes. Citing major breaches that the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) described at a Russian laboratory, chemist Francisco Radler said the lab must ensure that cheating, through infiltration by outsiders or other efforts to manipulate testing, is "impossible." In an interview with Reuters outside the new laboratory, a remote five-story building on the island campus of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Radler said a security force of about 50 people, including military police and private guards, will guard the nearly 200 local and international scientists and technicians who will conduct Olympic testing.

US ties four Zika cases in Florida to local mosquitoes

Yahoo Health: July 29, 2016
Four cases of Zika virus in Florida are likely the first transmitted locally by mosquitoes in the United States, officials said Friday, marking a new phase in the fast-growing pandemic. Until now, more than 1,600 cases of Zika -- which can cause birth defects -- have been recorded in the mainland United States but most were brought in by people who had become infected while traveling, with a smaller number transmitted by sexual contact. "As we have anticipated, Zika is now here," said Tom Frieden, chief of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), speaking to reporters in a conference call.

Technology alone may not close disparities in medical research

Yahoo Health: July 29, 2016
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - Internet technologies may help underserved populations participate in medical research studies, but relying on those technologies to get broader participation isn't likely to work, a new study suggests. "Most of those are based on educated white people, and not on the full range of the American population," said Dr. Sarah Hartz, of the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. Internet technologies like smart phones may make it easier for people to join those projects.

Lasting brain changes seen in college athletes after concussion

Yahoo Health: July 29, 2016
By Linda Thrasybule (Reuters Health) – The brain may show signs of concussion for months or years after the injury occurred, according to a Canadian study of college athletes. Using advanced MRI scans, researchers found evidence of brain shrinkage in the frontal lobes of athletes with a history of concussions compared to those who never had a concussion. The frontal lobe is involved in decision-making, problem solving and impulse control, but the researchers say it's unclear whether the concussion-related changes actually affected those abilities.

Smaller babies may need special car seat harnesses

Yahoo Health: July 29, 2016
By Madeline Kennedy (Reuters Health) - Restraints in infant car seats fit most newborns poorly, and low-birthweight infants in particular may not be well protected, Australian researchers say. Historically, the smallest children’s car seats were designed for babies weighing between 6.5 and 9 pounds (about 3 to 4 kg) and do not account for lower-weight infants, said lead author Julie Brown, a senior research scientist at Neuroscience Research Australia in Randwick. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) classifies children born weighing less than 5.5 pounds (2.5 kg) as “low birthweight” and says 8 percent of U.S. babies fall into this category.
