Health Alert: Esophageal Cancer Increasing Among Young Adults. Researchers report that the incidence of
esophageal adenocarcinoma has increased over the last 40 years, with the rate increasing fastest among patients under the age of 50. Additionally, the research team reports that younger esophageal cancer patients were more likely to be diagnosed with a more advanced stage of the cancer and their survival rates were lower than patients aged 50 and up. Lead study author Dr. Don C. Codipilly adds, “Physicians must keep in mind that [esophageal adenocarcinoma] is not a disease of the elderly, and that outcomes for young people with
[esophageal adenocarcinoma] are dismal… Our findings suggest that physicians should have a low threshold of suspicion for patients who present with dysphagia (difficulty swallowing). While younger patients would typically not be at high risk for [esophageal adenocarcinoma], they may benefit from an upper endoscopy.”

Wellness/Prevention: Vitamin D, Calcium, and Dysmenorrhea. Primary dysmenorrhea (PD) is a very
common gynecological disorder affecting 84.1% of women during childbearing age.

glucosamine may lower systemic inflammation in healthy individuals or that people who use these supplements may take more care of their health and be healthier overall.

Exercise: Quick Bursts of Exercise May Benefit Diabetics. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a form
of exercise that involves short intervals of near-maximal effort such as sprinting or stair climbing, separated by intervals of moderate-intensity exercise, such as jogging or fast walking.

Doctors of chiropractic are trained to evaluate the cervical spine and to restore normal motion using a combination of manual therapies
and specific exercise recommendations.                                  Journal of Exercise Rehabilitation, October 2020

Mental Attitude: Disasters Increase Suicides. According to a new study, an individual’s risk for suicide can increase up to 23% following a natural disaster, and the elevated suicide risk can persist for up to two years.

Chiropractic: Forward Head Posture Linked to Chronic Headaches? A review of data from twelve published studies found that chronic primary headache patients were more likely to exhibit forward head posture than individuals without a history of headache.

Diet: High Flavanol Diet May Lower Blood Pressure. Evaluations of health and diet data concerning over 25,000
adults revealed that those with the highest intake of flavanols—compounds found in many fruits and vegetables, as well as wine, tea, and chocolate, that have antioxidant properties—had a blood pressure reading 2 to 4 mmHg lower than those who consumed the lowest amount of flavanols.                         Scientific Reports, October 2020

Mental Attitude: Healthcare Usage in Early Infancy May Signal Autism, ADHD Risk. A review of the electronic health records of nearly 30,000 children revealed an association between an increased frequency of doctor and hospital visits during the first year of life and a later diagnosis of either autism spectrum disorder or attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Lead author Dr. Matthew Engelhard adds, “This study provides evidence that children who develop autism and ADHD are on a different path from the beginning… We have known that children with these diagnoses have more interactions with the healthcare system after they’ve been diagnosed, but this
indicates that distinctive patterns of utilization begin early in these children’s lives. This could provide an opportunity to intervene sooner.” Scientific Reports, October 2020
