Past research has linked the accumulation of amyloid plaque in the brain with the development of Alzheimer’s disease. In this study, researchers analyzed spinal fluid samples from 208 older men and women without dementia and found signs that indicated the presence of brain plaque in the samples taken from those with sleep apnea. This concerns researchers, as some estimates indicate that half of the elderly population suffers from sleep apnea of varying severity. The findings suggest that treating sleep apnea could help reduce the risk for Alzheimer’s disease.

An analysis of data regarding over 153,000 adults found that postponing surgical treatment for more than 29 days led to lower survival rates for those diagnosed with stage 1 melanoma. Researcher Dr. Brian Gastman writes, “We saw significantly worse prognoses and outcomes for those surgically treated after 30 days of stage I melanoma diagnosis. Knowing for certain that a more expedient time to surgery to remove an early melanoma improves the chances of survival is a game-changer in treating this life-threatening skin cancer.”

In this study, researchers assigned 130 overweight people to one of four groups: a cycling group, a moderate-intensity leisure-time exercise group, a high-intensity leisure-time exercise group, and a control group that did not exercise. The cycling group rode an average of 8.7 miles (14 kg) per day, the high-intensity group exercised about 35 minutes per day, and the moderate-intensity group exercised for around 55 minutes a day. After six months, the researchers calculated that the total energy expenditure was the same in all three exercise groups and all exercise participants lost between 9-10 lbs (4.08-4.53 kg). The findings suggest the riding a bike to work would be a time-effective solution to lose weight and become more physically active.

Excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a significant cause of skin cancer. To minimize exposure, the American Cancer Society suggests the following: stay in the shade during the hours of 10 AM and 4 PM when UV rays are the strongest; wear sunscreen when outside at all times; wear clothes that cover most of your skin; wear a wide brimmed hat to protect you head, neck, and face; and wear sunglasses that are designed block dangerous UV rays.
