  • Study Shows Simple Way To Reduce Deaths From Flu, Pneumonia

    UPI reports new research shows it's a very good idea to insist that healthcare workers get an annual flu shot. That's according to researchers from the University of Georgia, Montana State University and Monash University in Australia. They found that states with mandatory flu shots for hospital workers saw statewide reductions in deaths from influenza and pneumonia. They estimate that during the 2016-17 season alone, nearly 2,000 deaths were averted in the 15 U.S. states that had mandatory vaccination laws at that time. The findings suggest that health-worker vaccination laws may be a good way to protect the country's most vulnerable populations. The researchers say it's possible that similar benefits could also be seen with mandatory COVID-19 vaccination of hospital workers.

  • Study Shows There's An Actual 'Signature' In The Brain For Major Depression

    Scientists have identified the brain's 'signature' for major depression. According to UPI, Japanese researchers used machine learning to ID distinct patterns of coordinated brain activity in people with major depressive disorder. Major depression is fairly easy to diagnose. However, the researchers say a better understanding of the brain networks associated with the disease could improve treatment. The new brain network signature could serve as a foundation for discovering brain network patterns associated with different types of depression. It could also reveal relationships between depression and other disorders.

  • Get Up, Stand Up: Older, Sedentary Women Face Greater Risk Of Heart Failure

    A new study reveals older women have a greater risk of heart failure if they spend more time sitting than those who sit less. And according to UPI, that's even if they have a regular fitness routine. As part of the Women's Health Initiative Observational Study, researchers analyzed the records of 80,100 postmenopausal women who were roughly 63 years old. Women spending less than 6.5 hours daily sitting or lying down had 15% less risk of heart failure hospitalization than women spending 9.5 sedentary hours daily. The data also showed the less sedentary women had a 42% less risk of heart failure hospitalization than women reporting more than 9.5 hours sedentary hours.
