Originally published on October 4, 2013 7:37 pm Back in 2002, a research study blew apart the widely held belief that hormone replacement therapy protected women from heart disease and other chronic ills. Instead, the Women's Health Initiative study found that taking estrogen plus progestin hormone replacement therapy — HRT — actually increased a woman's risk of heart disease and breast cancer. A second WHI study published two years later reinforced the message, finding that taking estrogen alone also increased the risk of stroke, dementia and other problems. This week, the Women's Health Initiative published a final comprehensive report on its long, broad and deep look at women and HRT. JoAnn Manson, lead investigator of the Women's Health Initiative and a professor of medicine at the Harvard School of ...

Two of the more important routine screenings women should be aware of are regular mammograms and pap tests, which can both diagnose risk factors for certain types of cancer. Screenings also might detect microcalcifications that can sometimes indicate breast cancer as well. Most organizations, including the National Cancer Institute, recommend that women age 40 and over have a mammogram done every one to two years to help catch cancer early, which improves a woman's chance of survival. In the United States, roughly 68 percent of women have gotten mammograms within the last two years, according to the CDC. It is recommended that women age 35 to 39 get a baseline mammogram so they have an image of the healthy breast to which future mammograms can be compared. Pap Tests.

Then there’s the frustration of why some women experience horrible PMS symptoms while others barely experience a twinge, it’s no big deal. Thankfully, many of these symptoms can be warded off with lifestyle changes and treatments to reduce the effects caused by the main root of PMS symptoms, which is hormonal imbalance. It’s interesting how some women hardly feel the effects of PMS, or only suffer from a couple symptoms, while other women experience symptoms that interrupt daily life and routines. The main element that determines if your body responds to hormonal changes with PMS is if there is an imbalance. Other lifestyle factors such as stress, pre-existing health conditions and diet have a huge effect on someone’s individual response to PMS. Other women who experience more severe symptoms may choose to a ...

Brain regions Hippocampus. Short-term memory Word recall. Visual recall. Working memory Spatial working memory. Cannabis and the brain. This relationship suggests that the memory disrupting effects of cannabinoids might be due to D1 activation in the prefrontal cortex. In respect to neural mechanisms involved in plasticity, CB1 receptor activation has been found to inhibit both LTP and long-term depression LTD. Cannabinoids are also known to have disruptive effects of working memory in the prefrontal cortex. No effects were found in retrieval of word lists in conditions with no intoxication; therefore, the recall impairment that was observed while participants were under the influence of cannabis was attributed to encoding deficits rather than retrieval impairments. A 2000, Cannabinoids reveal the necessity of hippocampal neural encoding for short-term memory in rats. This study not only demonstrates the effects of cannabis on recall but also suggests longer-lasting effects. According to ...

We used dynamic causal models Friston et al ., 2003 to investigate how prefrontal, parietal and subcortical brain systems interacted with one another during working memory maintenance and manipulation, and importantly, the effects of dopamine genes on these interactions. In constructing the dynamic causal models at working memory maintenance and manipulation, we first selected time series from regions of interest in the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, parietal cortex and subcortical region that were robustly engaged in these working memory processes in each subject. From the optimal dynamic causal models describing maintenance and manipulation in working memory, we then ...

To the contrary, previous study in Indonesia showed that daily fast did not influence the memory of college students but improve the memory performance of teenagers. Thus, following these adverse conclusions, this study aims to find out whether or not fasting influence memory performance of adult human. Result showed that blood glucose level were high around 2.5 hours 110-120 mg/dl, decreased within 6 hours, and then remained constant until 24 hours 80-100 mg/dl. This homeostasis phenomenon was suggested to be the reason why the fasting duration did not influence memory performances both in reaction time and accomplished level. Fasting duration did not significantly influence reaction time with ...

How Long-Term Stress Affects Short-Term Memory. Why do some people lose their short-term memory with age, while others remain unaffected. A link between the stress hormone cortisol and short-term memory problems has been found by a new study. Although cortisol is a natural hormone that spikes when we are stressed to help us deal with challenging situations, over time its long-term effects may be detrimental to short-term memory. This is the first study to link long-term exposure to cortisol with short-term memory problems. The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Iowa and published in the Journal of Neuroscience, found that high levels of cortisol were associated with a loss of synapses in the prefrontal cortex, a structure that’s important for short-term memory Anderson et al., 2014. In the study, rats’ corticosterone levels were measured. Some of the rats forgot which direction to turn after a short delay — just as human short-term memory decays over a few minutes — but those with higher ...

It also quickly led Klingberg and the Karolinska Institute to form a company, Cogmed, to turn working-memory training into a business. We have scientifically validated research showing that Cogmed training provides substantial and lasting improvements in attention for people with poor working memory in all age groups. He pointed out that Cogmed claims only that it can improve working memory, not fluid intelligence per se even though many studies have found that working memory and fluid intelligence are closely related.

(1/238) Alternate child care, history of hospitalization, and preschool child behavior.

BACKGROUND: With more single mothers entering the workforce due to welfare reform efforts, more hospitalized children from single-parent families will have experienced alternate child care arrangements where routine care is provided by adults other than the child's mother. OBJECTIVES: To investigate with secondary analysis of data whether experience with alternate child care has a moderating effect on the relationship between hospitalization and behavior of preschool children living in female-headed single-parent families. METHOD: A sample of 60 preterm and 61 full-term children who were 3, 4, or 5 years old was recruited for the larger longitudinal study. Behavior problems were measured with the Child Behavior Checklist. History of hospitalization and alternate child care arrangements were measured with the Life History Calendar. RESULTS: Preschool children who experienced hospitalization without alternate child care experience had more somatic complaints, but those with both hospital and alternate child care experience had fewer aggressive behaviors than other children. For children with a history of hospitalization, aggressive behaviors decreased as the proportion of the child's life in alternate child care increased. CONCLUSIONS: Experience with alternate child care may ameliorate some of the negative effects of hospitalization, and potentially other novel and negative experiences, for preschool children. This could be due to child care providing positive experiences with separation from the mother, a peer group with which to talk about the novel experience, or actual instruction about the novel experience.  (+info)

(2/238) Childcare needs of female street vendors in Mexico City.

This article reports on strategies developed by female street vendors (vendedoras ambulantes) in Mexico City to ensure the care of their young children in the absence of a specific and operational government policy to fulfil this need. The information concerning child care and health was gathered by a survey of 426 street traders selected by multi-stage random cluster sampling in four of the administrative districts (delegaciones politicas) of Mexico City during 1990. It was found that, as mothers of young children, street vendors most frequently looked after their children personally on the street or left them with other members of the family. Related factors were availability of alternative child care providers in the family, the age of the children and working conditions of the mother. Children who remained on the streets with their mothers suffered more frequently from gastro-intestinal diseases and accidents than the national average. The incidence of acute respiratory diseases, however, was similar in the cases of maternal care in the street and care by family members in another environment. Existing public health measures show a greater concern for the health of food consumers than that of workers in this area. Current public policy seeks to regulate street vending activities and to concentrate traders in ad hoc areas and facilities. Our research results document the need for actions that can contribute to an improvement in the care and health conditions of these young children.  (+info)

(3/238) Health sector reform in central and eastern Europe: the professional dimension.

The success or failure of health sector reform in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe depends, to a large extent, on their health care staff. Commentators have focused on the structures to be put in place, such as mechanisms of financing or changes in ownership of facilities, but less attention has been paid to the role and status of the different groups working in health care services. This paper draws on a study of trends in staffing and working conditions throughout the region. It identifies several key issues including the traditionally lower status and pay of health sector workers compared to the West, the credibility crisis of trade unions, and the under-developed roles of professional associations. In order to implement health sector reforms and to address the deteriorating health status of the population, the health sector workforce has to be restructured and training programmes reoriented towards primary care. Finally, the paper identifies emerging issues such as the erosion of 'workplace welfare' and its adverse effects upon a predominantly female health care workforce.  (+info)

(4/238) The impact of welfare reform on parents' ability to care for their children's health.

OBJECTIVES: Most of the national policy debate regarding welfare assumed that if middle-income mothers could balance work while caring for their children's health and development, mothers leaving welfare for work should be able to do so as well. Yet, previous research has not examined the conditions faced by mothers leaving welfare for work. METHODS: Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, this study examined the availability of benefits that working parents commonly use to meet the health and developmental needs of their children; paid sick leave, vacation leave, and flexible hours. RESULTS: In comparison with mothers who had never received welfare, mothers who had been on Aid to Families with Dependent Children were more likely to be caring for at least 1 child with a chronic condition (37% vs 21%, respectively). Yet, they were more likely to lack sick leave for the entire time they worked (36% vs 20%) and less likely to receive other paid leave or flexibility. CONCLUSIONS: If current welfare recipients face similar conditions when they return to work, many will face working conditions that make it difficult or impossible to succeed in the labor force at the same time as meeting their children's health and developmental needs.  (+info)

(5/238) Psychosomatic symptoms of Japanese working women and their need for stress management.

This study was conducted to clarify Japanese female workers' psychosomatic symptoms including women-specific complaints and their need for stress management as part of occupational health services (OHS). In 1997, a survey was conducted in which a questionnaire was sent to 1108 full-time female workers. The response rate was 92.1%. They classified their own health status excellent (26.0%), good (60.4%), fair (9.6%), or bad (1.6%). They also reported their irritability (25.3%) and depression (15.6%). There were high rates of complaints of eye discomfort (53.6%), fatigue (44.1%), headache (43.0%), and menstrual pain (32.5%). Such symptoms were associated with irritability or depression. Amount of overtime works, marital status in the 30-44 age group, the presence of children were found to be important factors in determining health status. Regarding the needs for occupational health services, 22.2% of respondents answered they needed mental health management (MHM). Compared with other services, such as management of lifestyle diseases, gynecological diseases, cancer screenings and counseling on nutrition and exercise, the need for MHM was low. The preferred personnel were female doctors and nurses. Workers who performed frequent overtime work had a greater need for MHM. The most preferred means of receiving MHM was personal counseling by doctors (not psychologists) and nurses.  (+info)

(6/238) Occupational cancer in the European part of the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Precise information on the number of workers currently exposed to carcinogens in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) is lacking. However, the large number of workers employed in high-risk industries such as the chemical and metal industries suggests that the number of workers potentially exposed to carcinogens may be large. In the CIS, women account for almost 50% of the industrial work force. Although no precise data are available on the number of cancers caused by occupational exposures, indirect evidence suggests that the magnitude of the problem is comparable to that observed in Western Europe, representing some 20,000 cases per year. The large number of women employed in the past and at present in industries that create potential exposure to carcinogens is a special characteristic of the CIS. In recent years an increasing amount of high-quality research has been conducted on occupational cancer in the CIS; there is, however, room for further improvement. International training programs should be established, and funds from international research and development programs should be devoted to this area. In recent years, following privatization of many large-scale industries, access to employment and exposure data is becoming increasingly difficult.  (+info)

(7/238) Cancer and occupation in women: identifying associations using routinely collected national data.

Some potentially important findings from an analysis of 119,227 cancers registered in women in England over the 7-year period 1981 to 1987 are discussed. Data are presented for four cancer sites with established occupational etiologies (bladder, pleura, lung, larynx), three occupational groups in which women predominate (teachers, nurses, barstaff), and the main female cancers of the reproductive system (breast, uterus, cervix, ovary). Excesses of bladder cancer in female rubber workers (proportional registration ratio [PRR] 350, 95% confidence interval [CI] 141-723), pleural cancer in female carpenters (PRR 1596, 95% CI 329-4665) and lung cancer in female construction workers (PRR 269, 95% CI 154-437) and barstaff (PRR 138, 95%CI 124-156) are noted. It is concluded that analyses of routinely collected data on cancer and occupation in women have the potential to provide valuable pointers for further research.  (+info)

(8/238) High-risk occupations for breast cancer in the Swedish female working population.

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to estimate, for the period 1971 through 1989, occupation-specific risks of breast cancer among Swedish women employed in 1970. METHODS: Age-period standardized incidence ratios were computed. Log-linear Poisson models were fitted, with geographical area and town size taken into account. Risks were further adjusted for major occupational group, used as a proxy for socioeconomic status. Risk estimators were also calculated for women reporting the same occupation in 1960 and 1970. RESULTS: Most elevated risks among professionals, managers, and clerks were reduced when intragroup comparisons were carried out, indicating the confounding effect of socioeconomic status. Excess risks were found for pharmacists, teachers of theoretical subjects, schoolmasters, systems analysts and programmers, telephone operators, telegraph and radio operators, metal platers and coaters, and hairdressers and beauticians, as well as for women working in 1960 and 1970 as physicians, religious workers, social workers, bank tellers, cost accountants, and telephonists. CONCLUSIONS: While the high risks observed among professional, administrative, and clerical workers might be related to lower birth rates and increased case detection, excess risks found for telephone workers and for hairdressers and beauticians deserve further attention.  (+info)

How many women work through pregnancy?

They talk about having money problems already, and the baby hasn't even been born yet!! What do you mothers think of this, and don't most women work during pregnancy ? i mean my brothers partner
  • I'm working two part time jobs at the moment, and trust me, I have really, really bad morning sickness, but I just take my meds for it and they help. I plan to work until I can't anymore. Morning sickness is really hard, but raising a baby with no money would be even harder...


how should a woman work out at the gym to become more toned?


  • HI im 18 5"6 and 130 pounds, i recently got a gym membership and was wondering, what kind of things should women work on to get a more toned sexy body? I don't want to be bulky or some crazy body builder, just toned. any suggestions?
  • LIGHT weight my a**. With very few exceptions, the principles of diet & exercise are the same for men and women. And don’t worry about becoming a manly she-beast from lifting weights; most women can’t gain muscle at anywhere near the rate of men, no matter how hard they lift. Remember, female bodybuilders are lifting weights constantly, eating twice as much as you and taking male hormones. Getting huge doesn’t just happen to men, let alone women. This is a great program for women. Look around the website, get started on the program http://stronglifts.com/blog/


Is it true that if a woman works out her chest, her boobs will get smaller?


  • Is it true that if a woman works out her chest (ie- benchpresses), her boobs will get smaller? I have started to work out again, but have never worked out my chest muscles because I'm afraid my boobs will shrink. My fiance told me this isn't true unless your overweight to begin with (I'm not overweight). What do you think?
  • Not exactly working out, but losing weight does make your boobs smaller. Breasts contain fat tissue which will be reduced like the rest of you when you lose weight. You also dont have to be overweight for it to happen. I went from a B to an A and was never overweight. I still feel happier with my body though so it was worth it. Often it just helps you look more in proportion so I wouldn't worry about it. X

How do you women deal with morning sickness and a full time job?


  • I work a full time job, its not very active, its a desk job. But I'm in my 6th week and I'm starting to get morning sickness, its just me feeling nauseous and tired, and my neck and back hurt. How do you working pregnant women working a full time job handle this? Do you just go home early a lot or do just stay home?
  • I'm a stay at home mom, but when I was pregnant with my 1st, I had a full time desk job. The only thing that got me through the day was taking a little cat nap during my lunch break. Back then, they said no caffeine was allowed, but now my doctor has said that under 200mg a day is fine. Try a cup of coffee in the afternoon to keep you going. As far as the nausea, try some ginger candy or ginger ale. You can get the candied ginger at any health food store. It tastes gross, but it worked wonders for me! You might also get an electric heating pad for your back. Don't leave it on all day, but use it when your back starts to really hurt. Best of luck to you and remember, this too shall pass! EDIT*** The lady above me said something about nausea meds. I also took phenagren (sp?) when the nausea got very bad, but it made me really sleepy. You can talk to your doctor about getting some meds for the nausea if the ginger stuff doesn't do the trick.
