Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Colorectal cancer in patients with early onset is distinct from that in older patients

(Wiley) New research indicates that colorectal cancer diagnosed at an early age has clinical and genetic features that are different from those seen in traditional colorectal cancer diagnosed later in life. Published early online in CANCER, the study also revealed certain unique features in especially young patients and those with predisposing conditions.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: NIH study shows many preteens screen positive for suicide risk during ER visits

(NIH/National Institute of Mental Health) A new study found nearly one-third of youth ages 10 to 12 years screened positive for suicide risk in emergency departments. As part of a larger study on youth suicide risk screening in emergency departments, researchers at NIMH and collaborators explored how frequently preteen youth ages 10 to 12 screened positive for suicide risk. Notably, 7 percent of the preteens who screened positive for suicide risk were seeking help for physical – not psychiatric – concerns.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Smoking during pregnancy doubles the risk of sudden unexpected infant death, study warns

(Seattle Children’s) The first findings to result from a collaboration between Seattle Children’s Research Institute and Microsoft data scientists provides expecting mothers new information about how smoking before and during pregnancy contributes to the risk of an infant dying suddenly and unexpectedly before their first birthday.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Academic performance of urban children with asthma worse than peers without asthma

(American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology) A new study published in Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology shows urban children with poorly controlled asthma, particularly those who are ethnic minorities, also suffer academically. Kids who were kept home due to asthma symptoms weren’t able to do as well in the classroom.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Surprise billing debate continues to transfix state and federal policy makers

(FAIR Health) This briefing paper seeks to bring needed clarity to the feverish, ongoing surprise billing debate underway on the state and federal level. In this brief, we tease apart the threads to the surprise billing debate with the intent of increasing clarity about the implications of various legislative choices. To that end, we include data visualizations that use our independent data as a lens to illuminate those choices.

(Forschungsverbund Berlin) Given the importance and wide distribution of Influenza A viruses, it is surprising how little is known about infections of wild mammals. A new study led by Alex D. Greenwood and Gábor �. Czirják of the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (Leibniz-IZW) in Berlin sheds light on which species are commonly infected and why.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: NYU Abu Dhabi study finds grasping motions lead by visuo-haptic signals are most effective

(New York University) NYU Abu Dhabi researchers have found that the availability of both visual and haptic information for a target object significantly improves reach-to-grasp actions, demonstrating that the nervous system utilizes both types of information to optimize movement execution. The findings are featured in the journal Scientific Reports.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: More than just memories: a new role for the hippocampus during learning

(Arizona State University) Without an intact hippocampus, forming new memories is impossible. Researchers from Arizona State University and Stanford University found an equally important role for the hippocampus: feeding information to brain areas responsible for learning. Using fMRI, the research team found it was the hippocampus that encoded associations between relevant features of the environment during learning and that the associations encoded in the hippocampus were used by brain systems responsible for learning.

(Wiley) Individuals who take cholesterol-lowering statins may be at higher risk for developing high blood sugar levels, insulin resistance, and eventually type 2 diabetes, according to an analysis published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: MBL scientists identify gene partnerships that promote spinal cord regeneration

(Marine Biological Laboratory) Scientists at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) have identified gene ‘partners’ in the axolotl salamander that, when activated, allow the neural tube and associated nerve fibers to functionally regenerate after severe spinal cord damage. Interestingly, these genes are also present in humans, though they are activated in a different manner. Their results are published this week in Nature Communications Biology.
