Substance addition - more traditional idea of addiction to a substance that causes a physiological addiction (that's not to say there aren't behavioural elements). Often mind-altering substances.Behavioural addiction - behaviours that impact the rewards centres of the brain, such as gambling, binge eating, sex, shopping, gaming, exercise, cosmetic surgery, watching porn, risky behaviours.The current Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 4th Edition (DSM-IV-TR) has designated formal diagnostic criteria for several of these disorders, classifying them as impulse control disorders, a separate category from substance use disorders. Other behaviors (or impulse control disorders) have been included in DSM-IV DSM – gambling, kleptomania, internet gaming disorder, internet addiction, food addiction, hypersexuality, shopping addiction, exercise addiction, and tanning addiction.Behavioural addictions have more than tripled in the last decade while substance abuse has remained relatively stable over the last 20 years. This also correlates with the widespread use of social media (correlation not causation!)Phones - one click on Amazon prime, a few clicks to online porn, a few clicks to takeaway orders, a few clicks to place an online bet…Signs of behavioural addiction:* Spending the majority of your time engaging in the behavior, thinking about or arranging to engage in the behavior, or recovering from the effects* Becoming dependent on the behavior as a way to cope with emotions and to “feel normal”* Continuing despite physical and/or mental harm* Having trouble cutting back despite wanting to stop* Neglecting work, school, or family to engage in the behavior more often* Experiencing symptoms of withdrawal (for example, depression or irritability) when trying to stop* Minimizing or hiding the extent of the problemGambling - Johnson & Dixon (2009) used a response cost to reduce gambling behaviours in pathological gamblers by getting the participants to pay to gamble (or have the dealer perform the response for free). Only partially successful. To me this makes sense. To gamble, you have to pay?!Dixon, Marley & Jacobs (2003) found through multiple measures of delay discounting indicated that gamblers discounted delayed rewards (1 week later) more steeply than did control participants. SO maybe casinos/online gambling forums should deliver rewards one week/month/year later?Interestingly, there have also been behavioural interventions for substance abuse disorders, such as alcoholism and heroin use published in JABA.Personal use?- Baseline data- Social validity- Determine intervention- Take dataRef:Johnson, T.E. and Dixon, M.R.

We're very excited today to announce our partnership with Maya Agency - an agency that's played a huge role in developing and building both BASE and this podcast. We've been working with Maya Agency since the very start of BASE. They helped us create a beautiful and powerful brand, but working with them has really provided a lot more than that - the process helped educate us on what it means to build, maintain and grow a brand. We enjoyed every element of the process of building our BASE brand and learned a huge amount along the way. We had a lot of false starts and pivots but the team were really patient and definitely helped us through some tough moments. The end result was something we were really proud of and gave us the best possible start to the business. We've gone on to do big things at BASE and getting the brand right was an essential first step, which is why I always advise to invest in the process and not just go for your mate who's handy on illustrator. Since then, Maya Agency have built our BASELINE technology which has been a big project and a big success. They've really sought to understand what we wanted to do with the technology and how we wanted to change the industry - and that's helped us create something really special and groundbreaking. Finally, they've created our new brand for Fitness Business Asia and we absolutely love it! We wanted something that belonged to the BASE family but had its own unique look and feel. We wanted something a colorful and lively that could expand to include our consultancy work and other future projects Like BASE, we wanted a brand that we were proud of and got us excited, and Maya delivered on all of this. We're proud and excited to be working with Maya Agency and appreciate their support in helping us in our mission to raise the standards of the fitness industry in Asia.

Zinc might help to stave off respiratory infection symptoms and cut illness duration Western Sydney University (Australia), November 2, 2021   A zinc supplement might help stave off the symptoms of respiratory tract infections, such as coughing, congestion, and sore throat, and cut illness duration, suggests a pooled analysis of the available evidence, published in the open access journal BMJ Open. But the quality of the evidence on which these findings are based is variable, and it's not clear what an optimal formulation or dose of this nutrient might be, caution the researchers. Respiratory tract infections include colds, flu, sinusitis, pneumonia and COVID-19. Most infections clear up by themselves, but not all. And they often prove costly in terms of their impact on health services and time taken in sick leave. Zinc has a key role in immunity, inflammation, tissue injury, blood pressure and in tissue responses to lack of oxygen. As a result, it has generated considerable interest during the current pandemic for the possible prevention and treatment of COVID-19 infection. In response to calls for rapid evidence appraisals to inform self-care and clinical practice, the researchers evaluated zinc for the prevention and treatment of SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, and other viral respiratory tract infections. When that review was published, the results of several relevant clinical trials weren't yet available, so this current review brings the available evidence up to date.  The review includes 28 clinical trials involving 5446 adults, published in 17 English and Chinese research databases up to August 2020. None of the trials specifically looked at the use of zinc for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19. The most common zinc formulations used were lozenges followed by nasal spraysand gels containing either zinc acetate or gluconate salts. Doses varied substantially, depending on the formulation and whether zinc was used for prevention or treatment. Pooled analysis of the results of 25 trials showed that compared with dummy treatment (placebo), zinc lozenges or nasal spray prevented 5 respiratory tract infections in 100 people a month. These effects were strongest for curbing the risk of developing more severe symptoms, such as fever and influenza-like illnesses. But this is based on only three studies. On average, symptoms cleared up 2 days earlier with the use of either a zinc spray or liquid formulation taken under the tongue (sublingual) than when a placebo was used. During the first week of illness, participants who used sublingual or nasal spray zinc were nearly twice as likely to recover as those who used placebo: 19 more adults out of 100 were likely to still have symptoms a week later if they didn't use zinc supplements.  While zinc wasn't associated with an easing in average daily symptom severity, it was associated with a clinically significant reduction in symptom severity on day 3.  Side effects, including nausea and mouth/nose irritation, were around 40% more likely among those using zinc, but no serious side effects were reported in the 25 trials that monitored them.  However, compared with placebo, sublingual zinc didn't reduce the risk of developing an infection or cold symptoms after inoculation with human rhinovirus, nor were there any differences in illness duration between those who used zinc supplements and those who didn't. Nor was the comparative effectiveness of different zinc formulations and doses clear. And the quality, size, and design of the included studies varied considerably. "The marginal benefits, strain specificity, drug resistance and potential risks of other over-the-counter and prescription medications makes zinc a viable 'natural' alternative for the self-management of non-specific [respiratory tract infections], the researchers write.  "[Zinc] also provides clinicians with a management option for patients who are desperate for faster recovery times and might be seeking an unnecessary antibiotic prescription," they add. "However, clinicians and consumers need to be aware that considerable uncertainty remains regarding the clinical efficacy of different zinc formulations, doses and administration routes, and the extent to which efficacy might be influenced by the ever changing epidemiology of the viruses that cause [respiratory tract infections]," they caution. And how exactly zinc might exert its therapeutic effects on respiratory infections, including COVID-19, warrants further research, they conclude.     Drinking alcohol to stay healthy? That might not work, says new study Ulrich John of University Medicine (Germany), November 2, 2021 Increased mortality risk among current alcohol abstainers might largely be explained by other factors, including previous alcohol or drug problems, daily smoking, and overall poor health, according to a new study publishing November 2nd in PLOS Medicine by Ulrich John of University Medicine Greifswald, Germany, and colleagues. Previous studies have suggested that people who abstain from alcohol have a higher mortality rate than those who drink low to moderate amounts of alcohol. In the new study, researchers used data on a random sample of 4,028 German adults who had participated in a standardized interview conducted between 1996 and 1997, when participants were 18 to 64 years old. Baseline data were available on alcohol drinking in the 12 months prior to the interview, as well as other information on health, alcohol and drug use. Mortality data were available from follow-up 20 years later. Among the study participants, 447 (11.10%) had not drunk any alcohol in the 12 months prior to the baseline interview. Of these abstainers, 405 (90.60%) were former alcohol consumers and 322 (72.04%) had one or more other risk factor for higher mortality rates, including a former alcohol-use disorder or risky alcohol consumption (35.40%), daily smoking (50.00%), or fair to poor self-rated health (10.51%). The 125 alcohol abstinent persons without these risk factors did not show a statistically significantly difference in total, cardiovascular or cancer mortality compared to low to moderate alcohol consumers, and those who had stayed alcohol abstinent throughout their life had a hazard ratio of 1.64 (95% CI 0.72-3.77) compared to low to moderate alcohol consumers after adjustment for age, sex and tobacco smoking. "The results support the view that people in the general population who currently are abstinent from alcohol do not necessarily have a shorter survival time than the population with low to moderate alcohol consumption," the authors say. "The findings speak against recommendations to drink alcohol for health reasons." John adds, "It has long been assumed that low to moderate alcohol consumption might have positive effects on health based on the finding that alcohol abstainers seemed to die earlier than low to moderate drinkers. We found that the majority of the abstainers had alcohol or drug problems, risky alcohol consumption, daily tobacco smoking or fair to poor health in their history, i.e., factors that predict early death."   Quercetin helps to reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer Univ. of Hawaii and Univ. of Southern California, November 1, 2021 Quercetin, which is found naturally in apples and onions, has been identified as one of the most beneficial flavonols in preventing and reducing the risk of pancreatic cancer. Although the overall risk was reduced among the study participants, smokers who consumed foods rich in flavonols had a significantly greater risk reduction. This study, published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, is the first of its kind to evaluate the effect of flavonols – compounds found specifically in plants – on developing pancreatic cancer. According to the research paper, “only a few prospective studies have investigated flavonols as risk factors for cancer, none of which has included pancreatic cancer. “ Researchers from Germany, the Univ. of Hawaii and Univ. of Southern California tracked food intake and health outcomes of 183,518 participants in the Multiethnic Cohort Study for eight years. The study evaluated the participants' food consumption and calculated the intake of the three flavonols quercetin, kaempferol, and myricetin. The analyses determined that flavonol intake does have an impact on the risk for developing pancreatic cancer. The most significant finding was among smokers. Smokers with the lowest intake of flavonols presented with the most pancreatic cancer. Smoking is an established risk factor for the often fatal pancreatic cancer, notes the research. Among the other findings were that women had the highest intake of total flavonols and seventy percent of the flavonol intake came from quercetin, linked to apple and onion consumption. It is believed that these compounds may have anticancer effects due to their ability to reduce oxidative stress and alter other cellular functions related to cancer development. “Unlike many of the dietary components, flavonols are concentrated in specific foods rather than in broader food groups, for example, in apples rather than in all fruit,” notes the research study. Previously, the most consistent inverse association was found between flavonols, especially quercetin in apples and lung cancer, as pointed out in this study. No other epidemiological flavonol studies have included evaluation of pancreatic cancer. While found in many plants, flavonols are found in high concentrations in apples, onions, tea, berries, kale, and broccoli. Quercetin is most plentiful in apples and onions.   Researcher explains the psychology of successful aging University of California at Los Angeles, November 2, 2021 Successful aging can be the norm, says UCLA psychology professor Alan Castel in his new book, "Better with Age: The Psychology of Successful Aging" (Oxford University Press). Castel sees many inspiring role models of aging. French Impressionist Claude Monet, he notes, began his beloved water lily paintings at age 73. Castel cites hundreds of research studies, including his own, combined with personal accounts from older Americans, including Maya Angelou, Warren Buffett, John Wooden, Bob Newhart, Frank Gehry, David Letterman, Jack LaLanne, Jared Diamond, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, John Glenn and Vin Scully. Castel notes that architect Gehry designed conventional buildings and shopping malls early in his career, and decades later designed the creative buildings he would only dream about when he was younger. Others who did much of their best work when they were older include Mark Twain, Paul Cezanne, Frank Lloyd Wright, Robert Frost and Virginia Woolf, he writes. "There are a lot of myths about aging, and people often have negative stereotypes of what it means to get old," Castel said. "I have studied aging for two decades, and have seen many impressive role models of aging, as well as people who struggle in older age. This book provides both science behind what we can to do age well and role models of successful aging. While some books focus on how to try to prevent or delay aging, 'Better with Age' shows how we can age successfully and enjoy the benefits of old age. I have combined the lessons the psychology of aging teaches us with insights from some of the people who have succeeded in aging well." Castel cites a 1979 study by Harvard University social psychologist Ellen Langer in which men in their 70s and 80s went to a week-long retreat at a motel that was re-designed to reflect the décor and music from 1959. The men, who were all dependent on family members for their care, were more independent by the end of the week, and had significant improvements in their hearing, memory, strength and scores on intelligence tests. Some played catch with a football. One group of the men, who were told to behave like they were 20 years younger, showed greater flexibility, and even looked younger, according to observers who saw photos of them at the start and end of the week. In another study, researchers analyzed Catholic nuns' diary entries made in the 1930s and 1940s, when the nuns were in their 20s, and determined their level of happiness from these diaries. More than 50 years later, 75 percent of the most cheerful nuns survived to age 80, while only 40 percent of the least happy nuns survived to 80. The happiest nuns lived 10 years longer than the least happy nuns. Happiness increases our lives by four to 10 years, a recent research review suggested. "As an added bonus," Castel writes, "those additional years are likely to be happy ones." Successful aging involves being productive, mentally fit, and, most importantly, leading a meaningful life, Castel writes. What are the ingredients of staying sharp and aging successfully, a process which Castel says can start at any age? He has several recommendations. Tips for longevity Walking or other physical exercise is likely the best method to ensure brain and body health, Castel writes. In a large 2011 study, older adults were randomly assigned to a group that walked for 40 minutes three times a week or a stretching group for the same amount of time. After six months and again after one year, the walking group outperformed the stretching group on memory and cognitive functioning tests. Too much running, on the other hand, can lead to joint pain and injuries. In addition, after one year, those who walked 40 minutes a day three times a week showed a 2 percent increase in the volume of the hippocampus—an important brain region involved in memory. Typically, Castel notes, the hippocampus declines about 1 percent a year after age 50. "Walking actually appears to reverse the effects of aging," Castel says in the book. Balance exercises are proven to prevent falls, can keep us walking and may be the most essential training activity for older adults, Castel writes. Each year, more than two million older Americans go to the emergency room because of fall-related injuries. A 2014 British study found that people who could get up from a chair and sit back down more than 30 times in a minute were less likely to develop dementia and more likely to live longer than those who could not. A good balance exercise is standing on one leg with your eyes open for 60 seconds or more, and then on the other leg. Those who did poorly on this were found in a study to be at greater risk for stroke and dementia. Like walking, sleep is valuable free medicine. Studies have shown a connection between insomnia and the onset of dementia. People who speak more than one language are at reduced risk for developing dementia, research has shown; there is some evidence being bilingual or multilingual can offset dementia by five years, Castel writes. One study found that among people between 75 and 85, those who engaged in reading, playing board games, playing musical instruments and dancing had less dementia than those who did none of those activities. "Lifelong reading, especially in older age, may be one of the secrets to preserving mental ability," Castel writes. Set specific goals. Telling yourself to "eat healthy" is not very likely to cause a change; setting a goal of "eating fewer cookies after 7 p.m." is better. Similarly, "walk four days a week with a friend" is a more useful goal than "get more exercise" and "call a friend or family member every Friday morning" is better than "maintain friendships." How can we improve our memory? When Douglas Hegdahl was a 20-year-old prisoner of war in North Vietnam, he wanted to learn the names of other American prisoners. He memorized their names, capture dates, methods of capture and personal information of more than 250 prisoners to the tune of the nursey rhyme, "Old MacDonald Had a Farm." Today, more than four decades later, he can still recall all of their names, Castel writes. Social connections are also important. Rates of loneliness among older adults are increasing and chronic loneliness "poses as large a risk to long-term health and longevity as smoking cigarettes and may be twice as harmful for retirees as obesity," Castel writes. The number of Americans who say they have no close friends has roughly tripled in the last few decades. There is evidence that people with more social support tend to live longer than those who are more isolated, and that older adults who lead active social lives with others are less likely to develop dementia and have stronger immune systems to fight off diseases. "Staying sharp," Castel writes, "involves staying connected—and not to the Internet." A 2016 study focused on "super-agers"—people in their 70s whose memories are like those of people 40 years younger. Many of them said they worked hard at their jobs and their hobbies. The hard work was challenging, and not always pleasurable, leaving people sometimes feeling tired and frustrated. Some researchers believe this discomfort and frustration means you are challenging yourself in ways that will pay off in future brain and other health benefits. Research has shown that simply telling older adults they are taking a "wisdom test" rather than a "memory test" or "dementia screening" actually leads to better results on the identical memory test, Castel writes. If you are concerned about your memory, or that of a loved one, it may be wise to see a neurologist, Castel advises. Castel, 42, said he is struck by how many older adults vividly recall what is most important to them. As Castel quotes the Roman philosopher and statesman Cicero: "No old man forgets where he has hidden his treasure."     Researchers find phthalates in wide variety of fast foods George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health, October 29, 2021 A team of researchers from The George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health, the Southwest Research Institute and the Chan School of Public Health, has found phthalates in a wide variety of fast foods. In their paper published in Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology, the group describes how they collected samples of fast food from several restaurants and tested them for phthalates and other chemicals meant to replace them—and what they found. Phthalates are esters of phthalic acid and are commonly used to make plastic substances more flexible. Prior research has shown that they can also increase durability and longevity making them popular for plastics makers. Researchers have found that consumption of phthalates can disrupt the endocrine system and by extension levels of hormones in the body. Research has also shown that they can lead to asthma in children and increased obesity.  In this new effort, the researchers built on prior work they conducted looking at urine samples of volunteers where they found that those who ate more fast food, tended to have more phthalates in their system. To learn more about the link between fast food and phthalate levels, the researchers visited six fast food restaurants in and around San Antonio, Texas, and collected 64 food items to be used as test samples. They also asked for a pair of the plastic gloves that were used by food preparers at the same establishments and obtained three of them. In studying the food samples, the researchers found DnBP in 81% of the samples and DEHP in 70% of them. They also noted that the foods with the highest concentrations of phthalates were meat-based, such as cheeseburgers or burritos. The team also found DINCH, DEHT and DEHA, chemicals that have begun replacing phthalates in many of the samples they collected. They note that it is not known if such replacements are harmful to humans if ingested. The researchers did not attempt to find out how the phthalates were making their way into the fast foods but suspect it is likely from residue on rubber gloves used by cooks who prepare them. It is also possible, they note, that they are coming from plastic packaging.   Removing digital devices from the bedroom can improve sleep for children, teens Penn State University, November 2, 2021 Removing electronic media from the bedroom and encouraging a calming bedtime routine are among recommendations Penn State researchers outline in a recent manuscript on digital media and sleep in childhood and adolescence. The manuscript appears in the first-ever special supplement on this topic in Pediatricsa nd is based on previous studies that suggest the use of digital devices before bedtime leads to insufficient sleep. The recommendations, for clinicians and parents, are:   1. Make sleep a priority by talking with family members about the importance of sleep and healthy sleep expectations; 2. Encourage a bedtime routine that includes calming activities and avoids electronic media use; 3. Encourage families to remove all electronic devices from their child or teen's bedroom, including TVs, video games, computers, tablets and cell phones; 4. Talk with family members about the negative consequences of bright light in the evening on sleep; and 5. If a child or adolescent is exhibiting mood or behavioral problems, consider insufficient sleep as a contributing factor. "Recent reviews of scientific literature reveal that the vast majority of studies find evidence for an adverse association between screen-based media consumption and sleep health, primarily delayed bedtimes and reduced total sleep duration," said Orfeu Buxton, associate professor of biobehavioral health at Penn State and an author on the manuscript. The reasons behind this adverse association likely include time spent on screens replacing time spent sleeping; mental stimulation from media content; and the effects of light interrupting sleep cycles, according to the researchers. Buxton and other researchers are further exploring this topic. They are working to understand if media use affects the timing and duration of sleep among children and adolescents; the role of parenting and family practices; the links between screen time and sleep quality and tiredness; and the influence of light on circadian physiology and sleep health among children and adolescents.

Please join author Khurram Nasir and Associate Editor Sandeep Das as they discuss the article "Social Vulnerability and Premature Cardiovascular Mortality Among US Counties, 2014-2018." Dr. Carolyn Lam: Welcome to Circulation on the Run your weekly podcast, summary, and backstage pass to the journal and its editors. We're your co-hosts, I'm Dr. Carolyn Lam, Associate Editor from the National Heart Center in Duke-National University of Singapore. Dr. Greg Hundley: And I'm Dr. Greg Hundley, Associate Editor, Director of the Poly Heart Center, VCU Health in Richmond, Virginia. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Greg, I'm really excited about today's feature discussion. It's really meaningful on so many levels. It discusses social vulnerability. In other words, social determinants of health and its association with premature cardiovascular mortality among US counties. Now, even as an ex-US person I learned a lot, so everyone is going to want to listen in. But now let's start with going through some exciting papers in today's issue, shall we? Dr. Greg Hundley: You bet Carolyn. So, I'm going to grab a cup of coffee and we'll get started with the first article. And really gets into the world of cardiovascular risk and prostate cancer management. Dr. Greg Hundley: So, Carolyn in the light of improved prostate cancer survivorship, and the competing risk of cardiovascular disease, there's an ongoing need for rigorous cardio oncology clinical trials. As you probably know, androgen deprivation therapy is a cornerstone of prostate cancer therapy. Through different pituitary gonadotropin releasing hormone receptor mediated mechanisms both GnRH agonists, as well as antagonists, either indirectly or directly inhibit luteinizing hormone secretion, consequently inhibiting testosterone production. These GnRH agonists are the most commonly prescribed form of androgen deprivation therapy with only 3 to 4% of patients receiving a GnRH antagonist. Dr. Greg Hundley: So, Carolyn the relative cardiovascular safety of gonadotropin releasing hormone antagonists compared with gonadotropin releasing hormone agonists in men with prostate cancer and known atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease remains somewhat controversial. And therefore these authors led by Dr. Renato Lopes from both Brazil, as well as the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, conducted an international multicenter, prospective randomized open label trial, and men with prostate cancer and concomitant atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease were randomized one to receive gonadotropin releasing hormone, antagonist degarelix or the gonadotropin releasing hormone, agonist leuprolide for 12 months and the primary outcome was time to first educate major adverse cardiovascular event that combined the endpoints of composite death MI and stroke over these 12 months. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Nice Greg, and what did they find? Dr. Greg Hundley: Right Carolyn, due to slower than projected enrollment and fewer than projected primary outcome events enrollment was stopped before the 900 plan participants were accrued from May 3rd, 2016 to April 2020, a total of 545 patients from 113 sites across 12 countries were randomized. Baseline characteristics were really balanced between the two study groups. Now Mace occurred in 5.5% of the patients assigned to degarelix and 4.1% assigned to leuprolide and so in summary, Carolyn, this pronounced study is the first international randomized clinical trial to prospectively compare the cardiovascular safety of a gonadotropin releasing hormone antagonist as well as agonist in patients with prostate cancer. And the study was terminated prematurely due to smaller than planned number of participants and events. And so no difference in mace at one year was noted between the two groups and this pronounced study really provides a model for interdisciplinary collaboration between urologists, oncologists and cardiologist with a sheer goal of evaluating the impact of cancer therapies on cardiovascular outcomes. Dr. Carolyn Lam: That's so cool, Greg. I heard the presentation of these results at the ESC by Dr. Renato Lopes and it's a really cool and important study, but a paper I want to present is an analysis from Emperor preserved on inpatient and outpatient heart failure events. Dr. Greg Hundley: Great. Carolyn, so remind us, what did the Emperor preserved trial show? Dr. Carolyn Lam: Emperor preserved showed that in patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction empagliflozin reduce the primary endpoint of cardiovascular death or hospitalization for heart failure, primarily related to a lower risk of hospitalizations for heart failure. Greg you're smiling, because you can see me beaming because we finally have a robustly positive outcomes trial in have pep in this trial. Nonetheless in the current analysis, Dr. Milton Packer from Baylor Heart and Vascular Institute and others used prospectively collected information on inpatient and outpatient events, reflecting worsening heart failure, and pre specified their analysis in individual and composite end points. Dr. Greg Hundley: I've been in suspense here. What did they find? Dr. Carolyn Lam: Empagliflozin reduced the risk of severe hospitalizations as reflected by admissions requiring the use of ionotropic or vasopressor drugs and the need for intensive care. Empagliflozin also reduce the risk of outpatient worsening heart failure events, including the need for urgent care visits, diuretic, intensification, and unfavorable changes in functional class. So, basically benefit across the spectrum. Furthermore, because there's controversy about the effect across the spectrum of ejection fraction. The benefit on total heart failure hospitalizations was found to be similar in patients with an ejection fraction of above 40, but less than 50% and between 50 to 60%, although it was attenuated at the higher ejection fractions and we'll hear a lot of discussions about this.   Dr. Greg Hundley: Wow, Carolyn. Just more information that keeps coming out about SGLT-2 inhibition. My next paper comes from the world of preclinical science and angiogenesis is a dynamic process, involves expansion of a preexisting vascular network that can incur in a number of physiologic and pathologic settings. But despite its importance, the origin of the new angiogenesis vasculature is really poorly defined in particular, the primary subtype of endothelial cells, whether they be capillary, Venus or arterial that might be driving, this process really remains undefined. These authors led by Dr. Michael Simmons at Yale University school of medicine, fate mapped endothelial cells using genetic markers specific to arterial, Venus and capillary cells. Dr. Carolyn Lam: What did they find Greg? Dr. Greg Hundley: This team study results found that Venus endothelial cells were the primary endothelial subtype responsible for the normal expansion of vascular networks, formation of arterial, venous malformation, and pathologic angiogenesis. And these observations highlight the central role of the Venus endothelium in normal development and disease pathogenesis. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Wow. That's really interesting. I don't think I've ever really paid attention to that bit. Venus endothelium. Thank you for that. Now what else is in today's issue? Well, there's an exchange of letters between Doctors Zhang and Liao regarding the article anti hypertrophic memory after regression of exercise induced physiologic, myocardial hypertrophy is mediated by the long noncoding RNA M heart 779, then ECG Challenge by Dr. Ahmed on challenges of interpreting smart watch and implantable loop recorder, tracings. There's cardiology news by Tracy Hampton and Highlights from the Circulation Family of journals by Sara O'Brien. These regular articles are just really worth a read. You learn so much from just these short lovely summaries. There's On My Mind paper by Dr. Meyer on a targeted treatment opportunity for taking advantage of diastolic tone. And there's also a Research Letter by Dr. Brozovich on a rat model of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction changes in contractile proteins, regulating calcium cycling and vascular reactivity. Dr. Greg Hundley: These journal issues, there's so much information. I'm in a close out with an in depth piece from professor entitled antithrombotic therapy in patients undergoing transcatheter interventions for structural heart disease. I really look forward to your feature discussion on the social vulnerability and premature cardiovascular mortality in US countries. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Thanks Greg. It's good. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Today's feature discussion focuses on an extremely important topic of social vulnerability and premature cardiovascular mortality. So pleased to have the corresponding author of the feature paper, Dr. Khurram Nasir from Houston Methodist and Dr. Alana Morris, who is the editorialist for this paper. And she's joining us from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. So thank you both of you for joining and Alana if you don't mind, I'm going to borrow some of the words from your really-excellent editorial to bring us into the discussion. You very nicely brought up that early race and ethnic disparities and a death toll from COVID 19 really, laid the foundation for us having Frank conversations about vulnerable populations and has really brought to light social determinant of health and social economic inequality as risk factors. Now that's, COVID 19. And frankly, if we put everything in a global view of what kills most of us, it's still cardiovascular disease, which is why this paper is just so important, but current recognizing I'm not from the US, lots of our audience are not from the US. Could you please walk us through what your paper looked at and what it means? Dr. Khurram Nasir: Sure. Klan, thank you so much for having us today and what a wonderful editorial by Dr. Morris on this. As you pointed out about the COVID challenges, we were all touched by the significant disparities, really in a one of the lifetime crisis, such as COVID. But the reality is that even in times of calm the benefits, for example, cardiovascular disease prevention access have not been shared equally among vulnerable groups. So I'm a preventive cardiologist, and it gives me immense pride that despite being the number one cause of morbidity mortality for so long as a cardiology community, we have made significant strides over the last three decades, cutting into our losses. And if you look at the trends it's appeared and I'm very hopeful that we'll soon be losing the number one killer tag in US. At the same time we are seeing that those cuts are being lost, especially in the young individuals. Dr. Khurram Nasir: And at one point while we celebrate these decline. But the thing that bothers many of us that unfortunately these gains have not been equal, especially for our more vulnerable patients. And apart from the well documented, I think racial disparities that we all know and are becoming more aware. I think health disparities also form across various fourth lines and I believe the deepest and more persistent divides is around income. And you can even go a step further in US, unfortunately for our international group is unfortunate fact that in US, your zip code may hold more sway than your genetic code. And an example was made famous in St. Louis, Missouri Del marble award, which is known as the Delmer divide, a title that was made famous by a four minute BBC documentary that showed, that a sharp dividing line between the poor predominantly African American neighborhoods in the north and more affluent, largely white neighborhood in the south with health falling across this divide. Dr. Khurram Nasir: And in our practice, we see this phenomenon clearly in our own backyard. So, inspired by this sterling. We wanted to determine that a mirror geographical measure, where we can get insights of conditions where people live, learn, work, play, grow, and age, and commonly now known as the social determinants of health. Can that explain some of these rising risks, especially in the premature cardiovascular disease. So to design this study, we reached out to the CDC social vulnerable, the index that has been created that ranks communities and zip codes based on 15 factors across food domains, socioeconomic status, household composition of disability, that in includes single parents, elderly or children, minority status and language and housing type and transportation, all of them are put together and for each census. And then eventually at the county level, you can classify what their social vulnerability is. And as you know, this was really developed in to identify places where in times of disaster and emergencies, you can focus a little bit more, but we thought about how do we connect this to, for example, our data on mortality from CDC wonder. Dr. Khurram Nasir: And once we did that, we found very interesting patterns that across the scale social vulnerability, there is a risk dose dependent fashion and the age adjusted mortality rates for premature cardiovascular disease, which we define as less than 65, went from the least vulnerable and became the worst across the most vulnerable. At the same time, we also found this double jeopardy issues where this association was varied by race, gender, and ruler. And what we found that specifically Non-Hispanic lack individuals were more likely for certain types of cardiovascular, premature, such as stroke and heart failure, mortality, as compared to the rest, even if you were from the least vulnerable to the most women also unfortunately had a twofold higher risk of CBD mortality. And what is becoming clearly this whole ruler urban that a two to five fold risk of CBD mortality was seen among the least vulnerable. So this is in just the motive of our study, what we did and what we found. Dr. Carolyn Lam: That is so wonderful. Thank you for setting the context and then just to reiterate, so this was all within the US. Alana, could you maybe help frame how important these findings are for us? Dr. Alana Morris: Yes. I think that this analysis is so important, particularly within the context of some of the things that we see happening politically in our country and our landscape right now. And I think we tried to touch on some of those issues in the editorial. Again, I think that the COVID 19 pandemic, if you want to put that against this landscape has really brought into the forefront of our minds, this issue of disparities. Of course, there are many of us who have been thinking about researching and writing about disparities for a long time, but the issue of disparities really, came into the public mindset with the COVID 19 pandemic. The question now is how do we address these as we go forward? And what we're seeing politically is this question of how do we address inequalities that have been present for really since the beginning of time and maybe are widening and perhaps threaten many of the advances that we've made in terms of cardiovascular disease, morbidity, and mortality. Dr. Alana Morris: I think we have to think about in the US, universal healthcare coverage, because we have to be able to prevent disease and treat disease. And as current addressed, there are neighborhood zip codes where people not only don't have access to healthcare, but they don't even have access to the ability to promote health. They don't have access to things like parks, where they can exercise. They don't have access to healthy foods or grocery stores and in a country like the United States where there's so much wealth, you need to think about the fact that certain individuals, don't have the ability to access a grocery store, to access healthy food. It's just really striking and mind boggling that we have this, the difference in rural versus urban locations where some of our US residents, unfortunately don't have access to primary care clinicians, certainly not specialty clinicians is really very mind boggling. And we've seen this play out with the pandemic, but hopefully once we get past the COVID 19 pandemic, we still have to come back to a place where again, we're taking care of not only preventives or services to prevent the onset of cardiovascular disease, but certainly once people are diagnosed with cardiovascular disease, we want to get them access to specialty care. So we have to think as a community, how do we prevent disease, but also treat disease once disease is diagnosed within our country.   Dr. Carolyn Lam: What you just said about the zip code being more powerful about, than the genetic code, that's like a quotable code. It's incredible. And for those of us coming outside of the US, we don't even realize how much that plays a role, even just within the US. But now let's get to exact point that Alana pointed out, which is what are the next steps. And could you maybe suggest Khurram, and Alana maybe come first, but what's the one thing you want to get out or the one next thing that should happen after this Dr. Alanna Morris: We put a figure in to the editorial that I think really gets to the heart of the matter, I think that those of us who are in healthcare or those of us who think about public health really would ask the question of, why in a country that has as much wealth as the United States, do we not have universal healthcare, most countries across the world that are in an economic position similar to the United States do have universal healthcare coverage for their residents. And you see much better statistics in terms of longevity for their residents as compared to what we have in the United States. And what you see when you look at the United States is that where there is the most vulnerable residents as per analysis identifies those states are the ones that actually don't have, Medicaid expansion. Dr. Alanna Morris: They don't have a safety net for their residents. And so there's really contrast and this disparity that just does not make sense. It does not make sense where there are residents in the United States, which need the most help and they just don't have it. They just are not able to get access to preventive services as well as diagnostic services. And it really just doesn't make sense what we're doing in the United States, in my humble opinion. And I think in the humble opinion of many of us who want to take care of patients, but just cannot, Kern and I both practice in states where this is an issue. And I think that's one big driver. But again, I think when we also think about the built environment in the US and how we think about promoting health and how we talk to patients, when we talk about individuals in the US, we try to give them advice about therapeutic lifestyle changes, how to exercise, how to eat healthy, to prevent disease. That's easier for certain individuals as compared to others, depending upon where you live, depending upon those five digits that make up your zip code. So if we really want our residents to be healthy, we have to create an environment that enables them to do that. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Wow, thank you very much. And as I let Khurram have the final words even about where you think mixed research should be. I just want to highlight that incredible figure from your editorial Alana. I mean, it is really started, there are three panels to it, everyone. The first one chose the social vulnerability index, the second, the premature cardiovascular disease mortality, and then the third, the status of Medicaid expansion. And you can see the colors are just vivid in, how it all makes sense and goes together. So pick up our journal and have a look, but then finally Khurram? Dr. Khurram Nasir: So, Alana, your figure was fantastic and so much add perspective to our findings. As you were saying, it took me back to 35 years back when, where we are before Medicare disparities, even in access to hospitals were dramatic. So where we practice in the south one third of the hospitals would not admit African Americans even for emergency. Now, this is where the policy comes in and suddenly in 1965 using the carrot of Medicare dollars, the federal government virtually ended the practice of racially segregating patients, doctors, and medical staffs, blood supplies so that is the direction that we need to go from the policy perspective and trying to affect the upstream determinants. Now moving forward, as I think more, and especially as a physician, I think while the census level measures are extremely useful to help refine these policy and focus programs in vulnerable areas. Dr. Khurram Nasir: I also think that there is a parallel need to start focusing on similar efforts at the individual level. The first thing is how do we even identify social determinants at this patient level? Are there three main categories, income, education, possibly healthcare, but I think that we need to broaden this. And in the past we have been challenged because we didn't have a set of consensus of the defined SDUH framework. But thankfully now in 2021, we have the healthy people, 2020. Actually for international community, the WHO there is a WHO framework of identifying SDOH at an individual level and in US a more comprehensive Kaiser family foundation. And not only that, we looked at superficially broadly, but we have to go deeper beyond these components of economic instability, education, housing, social context on healthcare beyond insurance, and even food. Dr. Khurram Nasir: For example, income and employment are predominant pillars of income stability, but it may not capture the full picture. For example, difficulty paying bills out of pocket cost and death related to medical care, same in education, where we captured the highest degree, but issues around health and digital literacy and language proficiency may be even more important. So not only we have to broaden the scope, but we have to go in depth. And thirdly, what I've realized from these kind of studies that we have to go a step further, that social disparities don't occur in silos. And we have to look at the aggregated information. And maybe it's time to potentially learn from advances in genetics, in what we have learned that manifestation of disease, especially cardio metabolic rather than being influenced by few major genes is manifested secondary to multiple interacting genes. So can we create similar to a poly genetic risk score, which is an aggregation of genetic smaller risk to a relevant something similar called poly social risk score. Dr. Khurram Nasir: Now, this is an area that our group has been extensively working. And over the last 12 months, we have tried to construct a comprehensive poly social risk score at an individual level based on almost about 50 sub components of the social determinants. And we have suddenly finding very interesting associations with premature CAD stroke. Almost one in two young individuals with stroke, have the worst poly social risk code at the individual level. I think so the next steps will be definitely validation of this tool, incorporation in practice, whether it's adoption and effective interventions can be tied. But the final thing, what I truly want to say is that I'm hopeful that these efforts, the census level at an individual level, at a societal level and the health system are waking up to the importance of social determinants that we can think outside the box and have strong community partnerships. Multi Pro strategies driven largely by social economic environmental factors. So we can all make a lead towards the mission of achieving social justice and equity that eventually cascades through the health system and beyond. So we had enough time to illuminate the issues and challenges. Now it's the time to act. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Thank you so much Kern for a beautiful paper.

Millions of women around the world internally struggle with emotional eating and sabotage (...sometimes, even daily!) Here's how it goes down: You promise yourself you're not gonna eat ‘x' food (ie. the bread from the bread basket out at dinner)... And then the bread arrives, and you have some. You think to yourself: ‘Dammit, what's wrong with me?! I said I wasn't gonna have any. How am I  ever gonna lose this weight? UGHhh. Well, I already messed up, so maybe I'll just say eff-it - and start on Monday'... Typically, what ensues is a whole lot of eating. A whole lotta eating, even past the point of what actually feels good for you in your body. (aka: You eat until you feel stuffed. And awful. I know because I used to do the exact same thing). THIS IS WHAT I LOVINGLY REFER TO AS THE ‘I ALREADY MESSED UP' PHENOMENON. (yes, trust me. It's a thing. But also, you can totally de-condition it!) One of the MOST common questions I get is - Brenda ‘HOW DO I STOP OVEREATING AND SABOTAGING MY GOALS?!' In order to ‘stop' it's important to first understand what's causing this... THE CAUSE OF OVEREATING IN THIS WAY IS: ALL-OR-NOTHING THINKING. On todays' episode I break this down in a brand new way, and I also invite you into a new and upgraded possibility for your weight loss AND your life: LOVE, AS THE NEW BASELINE FOR DECISION-MAKING. Now, listen- before I get any eye rolls… ; ) And I know, I know this may initially sound way too over-simplified and cheesy, let me tell you: THIS IS THE MOST PRACTICAL AND EFFECTIVE THING YOU CAN DO. It's also essential for you to know that your current baseline for decision making is PERFECTIONISM and it's JUST. NOT. WORKING. I'M INVITING YOU TODAY INTO A COMPLETELY NEW POSSIBILITY. *If you are willing to make this one upgrade (from perfectionism as your baseline, to LOVE as your new baseline) ... Get ready to be done with the struggle. Get ready to be done with the sabotage. Get ready to be done with the ‘eff-it' moments and overeating. Get ready for SO MUCH MORE LOVE for yourself & your body AND those next-level results. You do NOT wanna miss this one. LISTEN NOW.
