Commonly prescribed anticholinergic drugs linked to dementia risk
June 24 (UPI) -- A widely used group of drugs -- anticholinergics -- used for everything from depression to allergies and gastrointestinal conditions to Parkinson's disease, may increase risk for dementia, a new study says. People over age 55 who used strong anticholinergic medication each day for more than three years had a 50 percent increased risk of developing dementia, according to findings published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine. "This study provides further evidence that doctors should be careful when prescribing certain drugs that have anticholinergic properties," Tom Dening, who...

The Last Abortion Clinic in Missouri Could Be Closed By the End of the Week
The last abortion clinic in Missouri will stay open through Friday, but the clinic’s fate beyond that date is far from guaranteed. The Missouri health department declined to renew Planned Parenthood of St. Louis’ license to perform abortions last Friday. On Monday, Judge Michael Seltzer instructed the clinic to appeal the ruling to the Administrative Hearing Commission, meaning Planned Parenthood effectively has until Friday to make its case. If the clinic is forced to close, Missouri would become the first state since 1973, when Roe v. Wade legalized abortion nationwide, to be without an a...

Even the Flies Inside Hospitals Carry Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria
Image: Ferran Pestaña/Wikimedia Upwards of 90 percent of insects found in British hospitals carry potentially harmful bacteria, according to new research. Alarmingly, a significant portion of this bacteria is resistant to one or more antibiotics, highlighting a previously under-appreciated health risk—though the researchers caution that chances of infection are low. New research published last week in the Journal of Medical Entomology shows that nearly nine in 10 insects caught in British hospitals carried problematic germs, including potentially harmful bacteria such as E.coli, Salmonella,...

Medicalising everyday life doesn’t help anyone’s mental health
I have a growing sense of unease about the Americanisation of British society’s attitude towards mental health. In the 1980s, British audiences smiled bemusedly at neurosis-laden Woody Allen films and the normality with which American television and cinema treated notions of therapy, meds and interventions. To a British ear, the protagonists of these human melodramas could seem self-absorbed, foolish and narcissistic; figures of fun to be pitied for their inability to maintain a stiff upper lip and their ignorance of the power of a strong cup of tea. Yet now these are all concepts that have...

Commonly prescribed drugs could increase the risk of dementia, says a new study
Credit: CC0 Public Domain The study, carried out by experts from the University of Nottingham and funded by the NIHR School for Primary Care Research, found that there was nearly a 50% increased risk of dementia among patients aged 55 and over who had used strong anticholinergic medication daily for three years or more. Anticholinergic drugs help to contract and relax muscles. They work by blocking acetylcholine, a chemical that transmits messages in the nervous system. Doctors prescribe the drugs to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, bladder con...

These people left their jobs behind to retire early — then life got in the way. Here’s how they coped with FIRE plans gone wrong

Courtesy of Alli and Matt Owen Gwen Merz, 28, is doing something she thought she’d never have to do again: hunt for a job. Earlier in her 20s, she set a goal to “retire” from full-time work at age 35, but she later decided to move that date up to 27. She wasn’t going to “retire” completely, but work flexibly after quitting her job. At that time, she planned to move to Minneapolis to be with her boyfriend. She saved more than $130,000 in a 401...
