The Worst Food to Eat for Your Mental Health, Says Expert | Eat This Not That

If your mental health is suffering, ditching the alcohol could be the key to feeling better.

"It is common to feel anxious, sad, overwhelmed, or alone after drinking episodes, and for some, this ignites a desire to eat as a way to cope," says Sydney Greene.

Fake COVID Vaccine Cards Are Being Sold Online. Using One Is A Crime

In the U.S., getting a COVID-19 vaccine and receiving a legitimate vaccination card is free. But, vendors selling fake vaccine cards have cropped up on Etsy and other dark web sites.

Fake vaccine cards not only have a negative impact on public health, says the FBI, but they're against the law — unauthorized use of an official government agency's seal can be punished with a fine or up to five years in prison.

Officials have pleaded with tech giants to keep the documents off their sites, but Amazon briefly had blank vaccination cards for sale this week. They could land their bearers in prison.

FDA approves first drug intended to slow cognitive decline caused by Alzheimer’s disease

The FDA on Monday approved the first Alzheimer’s treatment to slow cognitive decline. The medication is designed to alter the course of the disease by slowing the deterioration of brain function — not just to ease symptoms.

The medication, by slowing the disease, gives patients valuable time to be with their families and to perform everyday tasks such as cleaning and shopping.

It is the first drug cleared that is designed to alter the course of the disease by slowing the deterioration of brain function — not just to ease symptoms.

Check out this vaccine campaign idea in South Carolina! 🍻💉

To increase COVID-19 vaccinations among their residents ages 20-24, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) has partnered with the S.C. Brewers Guild to offer walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinics at breweries across South Carolina.

Vaccines are available to those 18+. Anyone 21+ who comes to get their vaccine is welcome to chase their shot with a free beer! Those under 21 can receive a free soda.

Naomi Osaka, world number two tennis player, is the latest in a long line of elite athletes to open up about their mental health struggles.

Unsurprisingly, her decision has led to significant public debate, seeing criticism and support in equal measure.

We know media scrutiny can negatively affect athlete mental health. Athletes should be offered support during particularly vulnerable points in their careers.

'Their Tanks Are Empty' — Children's Hospital Colorado Declares A Pediatric State Of Emergency

“Our kids have run out of resilience — their tanks are empty."

Children's Hospital Colorado is declaring a pediatric mental health state of emergency in response to the growing need for behavioral health services.

Providers have seen a sharp increase in kids reporting anxiety, depression, and feelings of isolation and social disconnectedness which has only been exacerbated by social distancing and pandemic restrictions.

117 staffers sue over Houston hospital’s vaccine mandate, saying they don’t want to be ‘guinea pigs’

A group of 117 unvaccinated staffers from Houston Methodist Hospital filed a lawsuit Friday seeking to avoid the hospital’s coronavirus vaccine mandate, saying it’s unlawful for bosses to require the shots.

The complaint, filed in state court, says Houston Methodist’s vaccine mandate violates a set of medical ethics standards known as the Nuremberg Code, which was designed to prevent experimentation on human subjects without consent.

Houston Methodist Hospital says 99 percent of its 26,000 employees have received the shots.

Do you need a booster or not?

New studies imply that many people who contracted COVID-19 about a year ago, recovered and now have been vaccinated will likely not require booster shots.

But, people who never caught the virus will most likely require a booster, as will other previously infected individuals who do not have a strong immune response.

Two new studies indicate that the COVID-19 vaccine could give recipients immunity to the virus for at least a year, and potentially longer, raising more questions about whether certain individuals will require booster shots.

3,600 sick, 13 dead from outbreaks linked to recreational water sources over last 5 years, CDC says

A chlorine shortage is hitting the swimming pool industry as prices skyrocket from the demand as summer kicks off.

Health experts say everybody should avoid swallowing water while swimming and just because a body of water is regularly cleaned does not mean it cannot spread germs.

The CDC released a new study that looked at sicknesses related to recreational water sites between 2015 and 2019. The study found 208 outbreaks in that time period from pools, hot tubs and water playgrounds--all sites where the water is chemically treated and cleaned.

https://abc11.com/cdc-pool-guidelines-swimming-water-safety-is-it-safe-to-swim/10671938/

Swimming, even in properly treated water, could make you sick, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Ohio Cops Seize W**d Edibles Packaged to Resemble Snack Chips

Police in Ohio recently seized an assortment of edibles that were packaged to resemble popular brands of snack chips. Recreational cannabis use is illegal in the state of Ohio.

The edibles had been packaged to look like popular snacks including Fritos chili cheese-flavored corn chips and Ruffles queso cheese-flavored potato chips.

Any alcohol causes damage to the brain, study finds

A new study finds that there was no "safe" level of drinking -- meaning that consuming any amount of alcohol was worse than not drinking it. They also found no evidence that the type of drink -- such as wine, spirits or beer -- affected the harm done to the brain.

Plus, high blood pressure, obesity or binge-drinking, could put people at higher risk, researchers added.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/19/health/alcohol-brain-health-intl-scli-wellness/index.html

There is no such thing as a "safe" level of drinking, with increased consumption of alcohol associated with poorer brain health, according to a new study.

It's Not Confusing That Americans are Confused about Masks

Americans are confused.

Dr. Anthony Fauci says, Americans are thinking "'You don't need the mask anymore.' That's not what the CDC said.” What it said, Fauci says, was: “If you are vaccinated, you can feel safe…It did not explicitly say that unvaccinated people should abandon their masks."

Years from now, it seems inevitable some historians and college professors will devote pages and lectures to how communication, at some level, was at the center of the country’s pandemic experience.

Colorectal Cancer Screening Should Start At Age 45, Experts Recommend

Are you due?

Experts say routine screening for colorectal cancer should begin at age 45 instead of 50.

Starting routine screening five years earlier could prevent more deaths from colorectal cancer, which is the third-leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force concluded.

Will You Need a COVID Booster Shot? Illinois' Top Doc Weighs In

With COVID vaccinations well underway, many are wondering how long protection will last and will they need a booster shot?

Some experts have speculated that the coronavirus vaccine could become an annual event, similar to the flu vaccine.

Pfizer-BioNTech have already been testing a third booster shot on fully vaccinated people. Moderna is also testing a potential third dose of its current vaccine, and a possible booster shot specifically targeting a South African variant.

How Companies And Employees Can Face The Global Mental Health Crisis Together

May is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth 🧠. #DYK?

Nearly half of U.S. workers have experienced mental health issues since Covid-19 began and 56% of employees experienced burnout during the pandemic.

Companies should consider evaluating the current mental health benefit offerings. By supporting the workforce’s mental well-being, employers are driving down the overall cost of healthcare and likely improving company performance.

Trying to Eat More Leafy Greens? Here’s the Amount You Need to Keep Heart Strong

One of the most repeated pieces of nutrition advice for cardiovascular health is to eat dark, leafy greens like kale, chard, and spinach regularly. But how much do you need to eat in order to see benefits? 🥬🥗🥬

The answer is: probably a lot less than you think.

People who ate one cup of raw, nitrate-rich vegetables had a lower systolic blood pressure.

Vaccinated Americans now may go without masks in most places, the C.D.C. said.

“The science is clear: If you are fully vaccinated, you are protected, and you can start doing the things that you stopped doing because of the pandemic,” the C.D.C. said in a statement on Thursday.

Does that mean Americans who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus may stop wearing masks or maintaining social distance in most indoor and outdoor settings, regardless of size?

In deference to local authorities, the C.D.C. said vaccinated Americans must continue to abide by existing state, local, or tribal laws and regulations, and follow local rules for businesses and workplaces.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/13/health/cdc-masks-guidance.html?action=click&module=Alert&pgtype=Homepage

Fully vaccinated people only need to wear masks in health care settings, on mass transit and in transportation hubs, and in prisons and homeless shelters.

Hi Team, I need some guidance rather quickly. The Austin Public Health Dept. is getting a lot of pressure to release cluster locations. From a quick internet search, departments are either getting backlash for not releasing this information or piece-mealing the info by releasing it a little at a time, but with hundreds of cases I don't want to pull and epi to look up a location every time a reporter, councilmember, commissioner or representative wants it. I have a solution to release the cluster data weekly (non-residential locations not included) but we don't know if we should give out the numbers to the clusters, have a threshold-number before reporting a location or have a threshold-number before releasing numbers, should we name the locations or give addresses? What is everyone else doing?
SARS in 2003 and MERS in 2012 were also deadly coronaviruses with very similar causes, symptoms and outcomes. And yet, once these outbreaks ended, little was done to prepare for the next attack from our "deadliest enemy." Instead we cut CDC and other public health funding and poured seemingly endless resources into making missiles and bombs. It is way past time to devote needed resources to public health agencies at every level - federal, state, local and tribal.
