Swine flu sweeps the southern hemisphere - health - 09 July 2009 THE swine flu pandemic is intensifying. The White House will meet with state representatives on 9 July to discuss preparations for the autumn flu season in the US, while the UK has shifted its response to dealing with widespread infection. Meanwhile, in the southern hemisphere, in the midst of its winter flu season, swine H1N1 virus seems to be replacing the seasonal flu viruses that circulated till now - classic pandemic behaviour. This raises concerns that seasonal flu vaccine, which some companies are still making, may be useless when the northern hemisphere's flu season arrives later this year. In the flu pandemics of 1918, 1957 and 1968, the pandemic virus completely replaced the circulating seasonal flu. But in 1977, an accidentally released mild H1N1 virus simply circulated alongside the existing flu, H3N2.

Cancer Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Les nouvelles cellules résultantes, dites « cancéreuses » ou « tumorales » peuvent former une tumeur maligne (un néoplasme) ou se propager à travers le corps. Durant la dernière décennie, plusieurs types de cancers semblent en augmentation, si dans certains cas cette progression est facilement liée à des facteurs de risque identifiés (tabac, alcool, polluants industriels reconnus cancérigènes, obésité, sédentarité, exposition au soleil) dans certains cas il est difficile d'attribuer à des facteurs précis l'augmentation observée. L'amélioration des outils de diagnostic[11] et le vieillissement de la population[12] expliquent une part importante de la progression de l'incidence de certains cancers. À l'inverse une étude de l'Institut de veille sanitaire montre que les cancers de l'estomac, de l’œsophage (chez l'homme), du col de l'utérus et le lymphome hodgkinien ont régressé entre 1980 et 2000[13].

Carbohydrates - What Should You Eat? - The Nutrition Source - Ha Carbohydrates: quality matters What’s most important is the type of carbohydrate you chose to eat because some sources are healthier than others. The amount of carbohydrate in the diet – high or low – is less important than the type of carbohydrate in the diet. Many people are confused about carbohydrates, but keep in mind that it’s more important to eat carbohydrates from healthy foods than to follow a strict diet limiting or counting the number of grams of carbohydrates consumed. What are carbohydrates? Carbohydrates are found in a wide array of both healthy and unhealthy foods—bread, beans, milk, popcorn, potatoes, cookies, spaghetti, soft drinks, corn, and cherry pie. Foods high in carbohydrates are an important part of a healthy diet. HSPH’s Healthy Eating Plate recommends filling most of your plate with healthy carbohydrates – with vegetables (except potatoes) and fruits taking up about half of your plate, and whole grains filling up about one fourth of your plate. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 1.
