Posted by:

An analysis of data concerning nearly half a million people in China showed that daily egg consumers had a 26% lower risk of hemorrhagic stroke, a 28% lower risk of death from hemorrhagic stroke, a 12% lower risk of ischemic heart disease, and an 18% lower risk of cardiovascular death. Though the study was only observational, the findings suggest that there is an association between moderate egg consumption and a lower rate of cardiac events.

New research suggests that too little sleep during the work week can be counteracted by sleeping in on the weekends. A study involving nearly 44,000 people showed that the risk of early death among individuals who got less sleep during the week and more sleep on the weekends differed very little from those who averaged seven hours per night on both weekdays and weekends. The findings suggest we shouldn’t feel guilty about sleeping in on the weekends.

Manipulative Treatment Beneficial for Low Back Pain.

Posted by:

In a recent study, researchers randomly assigned 68 patients suffering from non-specific chronic low back pain to receive either five manipulative therapy treatments or five sham treatments over a one-month period. Following the conclusion of care, the investigators reported that the patients in the manipulative treatment group experienced significant improvements in pain and disability that were not observed in the sham treatment group. The findings reveal the beneficial role that manipulative therapy treatments, such as those provided by doctors of ...
