Health Research: E-cigarette advertising makes one crave tobacco ♦ Exercise magnifies exhaustion for chronic fatigue patients ♦ Nanoparticles could allow brain stimulation + more

E-cigarette advertising makes one crave tobacco Television advertisements for e-cigarettes may be enticing current and even former tobacco smokers to reach for another cigarette. The researchers studied more than 800 daily, intermittent, and former smokers who watched e-cigarette advertising, and who then took a survey to determine smoking urges, intentions, and behaviors.

Why exercise magnifies exhaustion for chronic fatigue syndrome patients The mechanism that causes high-performance athletes to 'feel the burn' turns out to be the culprit in what makes people with chronic fatigue syndrome feel exhausted by the most common daily activities, new research shows.Continue Reading
High cholesterol, triglycerides can keep vitamin E from reaching body tissues  In the continuing debate over how much vitamin E is enough, a new study has found that high levels of blood lipids such as cholesterol and triglycerides can keep this essential micronutrient tied up in the bloodstream, and prevent vitamin E from reaching the tissues that need it.

Magnetic nanoparticles could allow brain stimulation without wires  Researchers have developed a method to stimulate brain tissue using external magnetic fields and injected magnetic nanoparticles -- a technique allowing direct stimulation of neurons, which could be an effective treatment Continue Reading

Inflammation in mouth, joints in rheumatoid arthritis Periodontitis shares pathogenic mechanisms with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and may trigger its onset, scientists say. In a new study, researchers performed joint and dental examinations, determined Porphyromonas gingivalis (P. gingivalis) antibodies, and examined inflammatory microenvironments in early and chronic RA patients Continue Reading
