Published Avid appetite in childhood linked to later eating disorder symptoms (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The study looked at survey data from 3,670 young people in the UK and the Netherlands to investigate how appetite traits in early childhood might relate to the likelihood of developing eating disorder symptoms up to 10 years later. The researchers found that a particularly high food responsiveness, defined as the urge to eat when you see, smell or taste palatable food, at the ages of four and five was linked to a higher likelihood of reporting a range of eating disorder symptoms at ages 12 to 14.
Published Turning back the clock on photoaging skin (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study examines dermal injections and their impact on skin aging.
Published A closer look at cannabis use and binge eating (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New research examined how often people experiencing binge eating are also using cannabis recreationally, and whether patients who use cannabis experience more severe eating disorder symptoms or symptoms of struggling with mental health.
Published A more eco-friendly facial sheet mask that moisturizes, even though it's packaged dry (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Starting a new year, many people pledge to enact self-care routines that improve their appearance. And facial sheet masks soaked in skin care ingredients provide an easy way to do this. However, these wet masks and their waterproof packaging often contain plastics and preservatives. Now, a study reports a dry-packaged hydrating facial mask that is made of biobased and sustainable materials.
Published Study reveals new genetic link between anorexia nervosa and being an early riser (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
New research indicates that the eating disorder anorexia nervosa is associated with being an early riser, unlike many other disorders that tend to be evening-based such as depression, binge eating disorder and schizophrenia.
Published Scientists 3D-print hair follicles in lab-grown skin (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Scientists have 3D-printed hair follicles in human skin tissue cultured in the lab. This marks the first time researchers have used the technology to generate hair follicles, which play an important role in skin healing and function. When it comes to engineering human skin, hair may at first seem superfluous. However, hair follicles are quite important: They produce sweat, helping regulate body temperature, and they contain stem cells that help skin heal. The finding has potential applications in regenerative medicine and drug testing, though engineering skin grafts that grow hair are still several years away.
Published Why men, wealthy people and maritime residents are more likely to develop skin cancer (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A new study examines why people living in Atlantic regions are more at-risk for developing melanoma than other Canadians, providing lessons on skin cancer prevention for the whole country. To find out why, the researchers compared UV exposure and behaviours among different groups in Atlantic Canada based on income, education, and gender, among other factors.
Published Why does skin get 'leathery' after too much sun? Bioengineers examine cellular breakdown (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A study explores how ultraviolet radiation can alter the microstructure of human skin. Particularly affected is collagen, the fibrous protein that binds together tissue, tendon, cartilage and bone throughout our bodies.
Published Exposure therapy to feared foods may help kids with eating disorders (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Whether you're afraid of dogs, needles or enclosed spaces, one of the most effective interventions for this type of anxiety disorder is exposure therapy in which you confront your fear in a safe environment. A new study finds that exposure therapy is also a promising treatment for adolescents with eating disorders. They found that exposure to feared foods -- such as candy bars and pizza -- helped kids who were in a partial hospitalization program for eating disorders experience decreased anxiety toward food.
Published Boosting the body's anti-viral immune response may eliminate aging cells (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Aging cells express a protein that is produced by human cytomegalovirus and is targeted by certain immune cells in the body. Harnessing the immune response to this protein could have multiple health benefits during aging.
Published Scientists see anti-aging potential in an invasive weed (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The fruit of the cocklebur plant, which grows worldwide and is often considered a noxious weed, has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory components that could make it useful as a skin protectant, according to new research.
Published Simple laser treatments may help prevent nonmelanoma skin cancer (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
In a study of patients with a history of facial keratinocyte carcinoma, 20.9% of those treated with nonablative fractional lasers experienced a subsequent keratinocyte carcinoma, compared with 40.4% of patients who did not receive laser treatment.
Published Body Dissatisfaction Can Lead to Eating Disorders at Any Age (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Eating disorders are stereotypically associated with adolescents and young adults. Growing evidence, however, suggests that these conditions can occur at any time during a woman's lifespan, including at midlife. A new study finds that body dissatisfaction is a primary cause of eating disorders, especially during perimenopause.
Published In cells, UV-emitting nail polish dryers damage DNA and cause mutations (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
The ultraviolet nail polish drying devices used to cure gel manicures may pose more of a public health concern than previously thought. Researchers studied these ultraviolet (UV) light-emitting devices, and found that their use leads to cell death and cancer-causing mutations in human cells.
Published Scars mended using transplanted hair follicles (via sciencedaily.com)
Researchers have found that hair follicle transplants can promote scar rejuvenation by altering their architecture and genetic makeup.
Published Scientists uncover possible neural link between early life trauma and binge-eating disorder (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Research has revealed how a pathway in the brain that typically provides signals to stop eating may be altered by early life trauma. The discovery, obtained from studies in mice adds new perspective to binge eating and obesity.
Published Researchers develop painless tattoos that can be self-administered (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
Researchers have developed low-cost, painless, and bloodless tattoos that can be self-administered and have many applications, from medical alerts to tracking neutered animals to cosmetics.
Published Circadian rhythm disruption found to be common among mental health disorders (via sciencedaily.com)
Scientists hypothesize that circadian rhythm disruption is a psychopathology factor shared by a broad range of mental illnesses and that research into its molecular foundation could be key to unlocking better therapies and treatments.
Published Researchers produce nanodiamonds capable of delivering medicinal and cosmetic remedies through the skin (via sciencedaily.com)
A novel approach provides an innovative solution to overcoming two major challenges in delivering medicinal and cosmetic remedies through the skin. Combining techniques in nanotechnology and optics, researchers produced tiny (nanometric) diamond particles so small that they are capable of penetrating skin to deliver these remedies. Next, they created a safe, laser-based optical method that quantifies nanodiamond penetration into the various layers of the skin and determines their location and concentration within body tissue in a non-invasive manner -- eliminating the need for a biopsy.
Published Deep brain stimulation shows promise against binge eating disorder (via sciencedaily.com) Original source
A small device that detects food craving-related brain activity in a key brain region, and responds by electrically stimulating that region, has shown promise in a pilot clinical trial in two patients with loss-of-control binge eating disorder (BED), according to researchers.
