Recent studies have shown that the prevalence of dementia in the United States declined between 2000 and 2012. However, we dont know whether this trend is connected to air pollution regulations, or if exposures to lower levels of PM2.5 in recent years still pose some degree of long-term threat to older Americans, especially those at risk for dementia. If long-term PM2.5 exposure indeed increases the risk for dementia, this would imply that public health organizations are underestimating the already large disease burden and health care costs associated with air pollution. For instance, the World Health Organization’s latest assessment of the global burden of disease caused by PM2.5 does not include dementia. Air pollution levels are much higher in India, China and many other developing nations than U.S. levels. The World Health Organization recommends reducing PM 2.

However, what makes biodynamic farming different is that it doesnt use outside fertilizers. It has to produce its own compost and nutrient-based fertility, and has done this quite efficiently. Further, unlike the others, it works on a number of principles originated by Rudolph Steiner: For efficient yields it may take into account the astrological positions and cycles of the moon and stars. For example, it has been said that a full moon is the best time for harvesting. In contrast, a new moon is the best time for plantingOther techniques include enriching the soil with various preparations such as cow’s manure and mineral solutions to promote good soil health. Although there is much scepticism, lack of supporting scientific evidence for its claims, biodynamic farming has increased exponentially in recent times. It has grabbed the attention and interests of a number of pro-organic companiesSome have described it as the new organic farming.

(credit: NCI, Dr. Cecil Fox ) What causes cancer? High-profile culprits obviously include bum genes inherited from parents and harmful environmental and lifestyle factors, such a smoking or not wearing sunscreen. But in a new study in Science , researchers yet again say a big factor is random mutations—those that naturally and unavoidably occur as our error-prone cells go about the normal process of replication. In fact, two-thirds of the mutations behind cancer are random —not inherited or induced by our environmentresearchers at Johns Hopkins conclude from a fresh statistical analysis. But , they caution, the contribution of genetic bad luck doesnt mean that many cancers arent preventable. It’s a point they emphasize carefully after their previous work set off fiery controversy on the matter . Back in early 2015, the lead researchers of the new study, Cristian Tomasetti and Bert Vogelstein, published a straightforward hypothesis (also in Science ) that the risk of cancers can, in part, be explained by simple stem cell replication.

New functions are being rolled out to Facebook Messenger, including reactions to messages and photos sent via the app, and the ability to bring users into conversations with mentions. The idea is to make group chats more fun and more intuitive. Facebook Messenger's new "reactions" let users acknowledge and react to messages (text, image, video) with emotions symbolized by emojis. In fact, the idea comes straight from the Facebook social network, where users can already react to status updates and posts with a "like" or a "heart," for example. One key difference is that the Messenger reactions include a thumbs-down, or "dislike" button, still not available on the social network despite widespread demand. In principle, the reactions work in exactly the same way as those available via the Apple Messages app. Notifications alert users when someone reacts to one of their messages.

Qadri was hanged, however, after being found guilty of murder by Islamabad High Court last year. Tens of thousands of religious people attended his funeral, blocking several main roads leading to capital Islamabad and chantingQadri, your sacrifice will be remembered.” The slogan of remembrance at his funeral seems to have been followed through. Now Qadri is being hailed as a hero in Pakistan. Earlier this month, thousands of his supporters paid tribute to his grave-turned shrine on his death anniversary. “Around three to four thousand people from different cities of Pakistan come here daily,” Zameer Qadri, uncle of Mumtaz Qadri told VOA. “This doesnt include the local villagers.” Located on the outskirts of the capital city Islamabad, decorated by four white minarets to imitate Muhammad’s Mosque in Saudi Arabia, the shrine is attracting large number of devotees on a regular basis.

U.S. President Donald Trump is turning his attention to tax reform following the collapse of the effort to repeal and replace the nation's health care plan. "I would say that we will probably start going very, very strongly for the big tax cuts and tax reform. That will be next," Trump said at the White House Friday after Republicans withdrew legislation to replace the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare. Trump's remarks were made after Republicans were forced to cancel a vote on the replacement bill in the House of Representatives because it did not have enough support. Earlier Friday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said during an interview with the news site Axios said he has been overseeing the administration's tax reform bill for the past two months. He said the bill would include proposals to cut individual and corporate taxes.

There are concerns that enrollment may have been hurt when the Trump administration suddenly ended the ads and other outreach in late January just days before the end of open enrollment in Obamacare. Some 12.2 million Americans signed up for the plan during the enrollment period through HealthCare.gov and state insurance markets, but that was lower than expected . Now that he has lost his fight to pass his own version of a health insurance system, Trump has repeated his plan to let the Affordable Care Act explode, which could include further plans to discourage enrollment. Fears about the plan and the Trump administrations disdain for it could also drive consumers away, critics say, which could be seriously damaging to the health plan system.
