NAGOYA, Japan — Many people are still skeptical about allowing artificial intelligence to pick the next song on their playlist, let alone influence major medical decisions. However, groundbreaking new research from Japan reports that a new AI algorithm is on par with human medical experts when it comes to analyzing lung disease. Scientists at Nagoya University…

Robot’s Movements in a Curved Space Break the Laws of Physics

ATLANTA – Robots have just thrown a curveball at the laws of physics. Scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology say humans, animals, and machines typically need to push against something in order to move. However, their new study has just proven the exact opposite can be true – in a curved space. Their experiment…

Drugmaker Gilead Sciences Pledges $5 Million to Educate LGBTQ+ Community on Monkeypox

Drugmaker Gilead Sciences plans to announce on Tuesday that it will provide up to $5 million in grants to help a coalition of LGBTQ+ and human rights advocacy groups craft public health responses to monkeypox outbreaks, the company said.

Outside of Africa, where the virus is endemic, new cases have largely occurred among gay and bisexual men. Experts warn that the virus could spread to other populations, especially due to vaccine shortages. The World Health Organization and the United States have declared monkeypox a public health emergency.

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), GLAAD, the National Black Justice Coalition, and the National Center for Lesbian Rights are each receiving $350,000 from Gilead for public education toward preventing and treating the virus.

JUDGE RULES US MILITARY CAN’T DISCHARGE HIV-POSITIVE TROOPS

Gilead is a leading producer of therapies to treat HIV. The company said it is also evaluating whether any of its treatments or experimental drug candidates could be effective against monkeypox.

GLAAD’s staff has not been able to meet recent demands for information about monkeypox, said spokesperson Rich Ferraro. “With this partnership we’ll be able to do more,” he said.

The funds will help the groups produce videos, graphics and other information resources for distribution to the media and at community centers, bars, nightclubs, parties and events.

Torrian Baskerville, director of HIV and Health Equity at HRC, said the U.S. response to the virus at federal, state and local levels has been “slow across the board.”

Policy changes are urgently needed to streamline the distribution of vaccines, with current systems varying among states, he said.

NMAC – formerly the National Minority AIDS Coalition – will receive $500,000 to coordinate the coalition’s public policy efforts.

WILL MONKEYPOX BECOME ANOTHER COVID OR HIV?

Another $3 million is reserved for emergency grants to smaller organizations worldwide. Already stretched thin by COVID-19, these groups may otherwise need to delay patients’ usual care during monkeypox outbreaks, said Gilead spokesperson Korab Zuka.

Eating High-processed Foods Could Lead to a Faster Rate of Cognitive Decline: Study

A new study finds that eating high-processed foods could be connected to a faster rate of cognitive decline. High-processed foods like pre-made meals, frozen microwave meals and instant noodles might be quick and easy to make, but based on the results of the recent study, it could be more worthwhile to spend the extra time in the kitchen.

The results of the study were presented at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in San Diego on Monday and examined the diets and cognition of over 10,000 middle-aged and older adults in Brazil. The study examined the participants for up to 10 years and included both men and women. 

The study found that the adults who consumed the most high-processed food had a 25% faster decline in their “executive function” which is their ability to plan and execute and action than those who consumed less high processed food.

THESE ARE THE WORST FOODS FOR YOUR HEALTH, EXPERTS SAY

‘ULTRA-PROCESSED’ FOODS COULD ACCELERATE BILOGICAL AGAIN, STUDY FINDS

In another recent study published by American Academy of Neurology on Science News found that people who consume high amounts of ultra-processed foods have a higher risk of developing dementia.

High-processed foods are foods that contain few whole ingredients and often contain flavors, colors or other additives. This includes white bread, cookies, crackers, ice cream, candy, hot dogs, sugary drinks, fried snacks and other processed meats. 

“Independent of the amount of calories, independent of the amount of healthy food that you try to eat, the ultra-processed food is not good for your cognition,” Claudia Suemoto, an author of the study said.
