Heart inflammation is uncommon in pro athletes who’ve had mostly mild COVID-19 and most don’t need to be sidelined, a study conducted by major professional sports leagues suggests. The results are not definitive, outside experts say, and more independent research is needed. But the study published Thursday in JAMA Cardiology is the largest to examine the potential problem. The coronavirus can cause inflammation in many organs, including the heart.

As we crossed another grim milestone — 500,000 American lives claimed by COVID-19 — accelerating vaccine distribution efforts provide a promising light at the end of the tunnel. But one issue threatens to prolong the pandemic: a sizable percentage of the U.S. population is not ready to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated. While the number of U.S. adults who intend to get vaccinated appears to have increased in late 2020, many still have concerns and do not plan to get vaccinated, taking a wait and see approach. This could prolong the pandemic. One survey found that approximately 40 percent of the public is hesitant to get vaccinated, including some healthcare providers and groups disproportionately affected by the virus. A handful of other surveys have generated similar findings and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s data show that Black and Hispanic communities are less likely to get vaccinated than whites. And one-third of … [Read more...] about Public health education is the best way to get COVID shots in arms

Hearing aids are small electronic devices that a person wears in or behind their ears. These devices amplify ambient sound and allow people with mild to severe hearing loss to hear the sounds around them. They do not restore a person's hearing, but rather increase the volume of environmental sounds. How do hearing aids work? Most modern hearing aids are digital. Digital hearing aids consist of three parts, according to Johns Hopkins : —a microphone, to pick up sound waves and convert them into a digital signal; —an amplifier, to make specific sound frequencies louder; —a speaker, to convert the digital signal back into sound waves and transmit the louder sound down a person's ear canal. Who benefits from hearing aids? The World Health Organization estimates that 1.5 billion people worldwide have some degree of hearing loss, and that this number will rise to 2.5 billion by 2050. There are three primary types of hearing loss, depending on which part of the … [Read more...] about Hearing aids: How they work and which type is best for you
Many reports and studies tell us that Americans have been drinking more alcohol since the start of the coronavirus pandemic. As restrictions have been placed on bars and restaurants, online sales of alcoholic beverages have soared. Presumably, people are drinking more to blunt the stress and strain of the pandemic and its attendant social isolation and economic woes. Is this increase in drinking alcohol harmful? Of course, no one disputes that excessive drinking to the point of meeting criteria for an alcohol use disorder is harmful. There are differences of opinion, however, about the health effects of more moderate alcohol consumption. Some studies have shown that moderate drinking, usually defined as one to two drinks a day for men and one drink a day for women, has beneficial effects on heart health . One potential reason for this is that alcohol raises the level of so-called “good” or HDL cholesterol. It also has an anticoagulant effect, which decreases blood … [Read more...] about Is There Any Amount of Alcohol That Is Good for You?
