    Patients and providers concerned over Amazon’s health-care expansion

    Elderly patients used to take cooking classes and do puzzles at Iora Health clinics, which also paid for taxi rides so they wouldn’t miss appointments. The late-night phone calls, free transportation and ability to text with clinical staff helped pull Deborah Wood of Kennesaw, Ga., out of a spiraling health crisis, she said. But since Amazon bought Iora parent company One Medical and rebranded it as One Medical Seniors, appointments have gotten shorter, clinical staff have lost their jobs and some of the unique offerings have disappeared, patients and former employees told The Washington Post in interviews. The changes for senior patients like Wood highlight Amazon’s recent effort to consolidate…

    More pandemic-style price fixing won’t help global health

    This week, 19 House Ways and Means Committee members wrote to President Biden opposing broadening the pandemic-era waiver on intellectual property protections for COVID-19 vaccines. Despite evidence that the waiver failed to foster developing countries’ access to these vaccines, left serious supply-chain deficits unresolved and threatened future drug development and innovation, the Biden administration and World Trade Organization are contemplating extending it to include COVID-19 diagnostic tools and therapeutics. Undermining pharma giants and blaming them for excessive profits off patented medicines — even as these companies benefit from billions in public contracts and government-authorized liability waivers — has a lot of populist appeal. Unfortunately, fixing the price of intellectual property at zero deters new American drugs from being developed and brought to market, thus jeopardizing the…

    Healthy plant-based diet may lower risk by 19%

    Share on PinterestChoosing more healthy plant-based food sources could help reduce the risk of sleep apnea, research suggests. Sophia Hsin/Stocksy Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleep-related breathing disorder that has been linked directly to cardiovascular issues, and indirectly to cancer, diabetes, and dementia due to loss of healthy sleep. A new study finds that eating a healthy plant-based diet can significantly reduce the risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea. The study also indicates that consuming an unhealthy plant-based diet heavy in refined grains, sugar, and salt, as well as too many animal-based foods, significantly raises the chances of developing obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) occurs at a time…

    IVF court ruling further upends women’s health care in Alabama

    AUBURN, Ala. — She removed the tiny vials from her refrigerator and began filling syringes laid out on her dining room table, determined to continue injections that could make her a mother. “I am going to keep fighting,” said Gabrielle “Gabby” Goidel, wincing as her husband gave her the first shot of an in vitro fertilization cycle precisely timed so a doctor could extract eggs, fertilize them and implant embryos before month’s end. Just a few days earlier, Alabama’s Supreme Court had ruled that frozen embryos are children and that people can be held liable for destroying them. The outcome had thrown countless women’s hopes and plans into doubt. Already,…

    Parenting Style Could Influence ADHD Severity in Kids

    MONDAY, Feb. 19, 2024 (HealthDay News) — A shift in parenting early in a child’s development might help curb the symptoms of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), new research suggests. When a preschooler exhibits an “excitable or exuberant” temperament, dialing down a “controlling” style of parenting in favor of what’s known as “directive” parenting could mean milder ADHD symptoms as a child ages, Canadian researchers report. “More directive parenting, which is not controlling but guides the child with verbal and physical cues, can help develop the child’s self-regulatory skills and prevent their ADHD symptoms from increasing,” explained study co-author Dr. Heather Henderson, a professor of developmental psychology at the University of…

    81% of Gen Z believe they can write self-help books

    Philadelphia — It takes audacity to write a self-help book. What you’re proclaiming, page after page, is not only that you have a better take on what’s plaguing the human condition than everyone else, you’re also saying that you’re enlightened enough to fix it. That’s chutzpah. Now comes a new survey that says 47% of Americans believe they could write a self-help (also called self-improvement) book. What’s more, 81% of Gen Z folks (ages 12 to 27) are confident they could pen such a tome, compared to 48% of millennials (ages 28 to 43), and just 28% of boomers (ages 60 to 78). The survey was conducted last fall by OnePoll,…
