    Finding colorectal cancer early is key

    Compounders can help ease the side effects of colorectal cancer treatment

    Once upon a time, you may have had to sit down with your young children to discuss the birds and the bees. But these tough conversations do not stop in adolescence: Have you talked to your (adult) children about “the bums and the bees”? 

    If they are 45 years or older, you should encourage them to start colorectal cancer screening. March marks Colorectal Cancer Awareness month and should serve as a friendly reminder to have those tough conversations. 

    Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a disease in which cells in the colon or rectum grow out of control.1 It is the 4th most common type of cancer in the United States.2 Anyone can develop it, but some have a higher risk than others—for instance, patients with

    Heart Health + Hormone Replacement Therapy: Friend or Foe?

    You may already be aware that heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. But what you may not know is that cardiovascular disease is not only impacted by factors such as genetics, obesity, or smoking, but also by menopause and andropause.

    The use of hormones to offset the effects of menopause/andropause is an option, but first, we have to clarify why they have had a bad reputation, and what medical research is now showing.

    Hormone replacement therapy is bad!?

    The belief that menopausal women shouldn’t take hormone replacements stemmed from a 2002 study by the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI). Using conjugated equine estrogen (CEE) and medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) for the study, the researchers determined that the benefits of HRT were greatly outweighed by the detrimental effects it had on breast and heart health. 

    But a later analysis of the 2002 WHI trial and newer studies have shown that use of HRT in

    Probiotics vs depression?

    Could probiotics help with depression? Yes, say Malaysian researchers, but. And — despite what you might read on social media — it’s a big but.

    The yes: “It has been proven that different strains of probiotics exert anti-depressive potential via distinct mechanisms,” they write. Low amounts of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, for example, seem to correlate with higher depression risk, while higher levels of Eggerthella is associated with major depressive disorders.

    The but: That’s all great in theory, but finding the actual probiotic cocktails to help with depression — a simple pill or food — “will be challenging and elusive.” There just haven’t been enough studies, and we know how complex the microbiome is.

    Still, they say, it’s worth studying:

    It seems only fitting that scientists and industrialists consider developing probiotic strains that effectively ameliorate depression
