Washington D.C. [USA], Oct 8 (ANI): A drop in your salary does not only affect your pocket and budget but can trouble the mind too.
Young adults who experience annual income drops of 25 per cent or more may be prone to thinking problems and reduced brain health in middle age, states a new study published in the Journal Neurology.
"Our results provide evidence that higher income volatility during peak earning years are associated with worse brain aging in middle age," said senior author Adina Zeki Al Hazzouri, PhD, assistant professor of epidemiology at Columbia Mailman School of Public Health.
The study involved 3,287 people who were 23 to 35 years old at the start of the study and were enrolled in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) study.
Participants reported their annual pre-tax household income every three to five years for 20 years, from 1990 to 2010.
Researchers examined how often income dropped as well as the percentage of change in income between 1990 and 2010.
Based on a number of income drops, participants fell into three groups: 1,780 people who did not have an income drop; 1,108 who had one drop of 25 per cent or more from the previously reported income; and 399 people who had two or more such drops.
Participants were given thinking and memory tests that measured how well they completed tasks and how much time it took to complete them.
Researchers found that people with two or more income drops had worse performances in completing tasks than people with no income drops. On average, they scored worse by 3.74 points or 2.8 per cent.
"For reference, this poor performance is greater than what is normally seen due to one year in aging, which is equivalent to scoring worse by only 0.71 points on average or 0.53 per cent," said first author Leslie Grasset, PhD, of the Inserm Research Center in Bordeaux, France.
Participants with more income drops also scored worse on how much time it took to complete some tasks.
Of the study group, 707 participants also had brain scans with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at the beginning of the study and 20 years later to measure their total brain volume as well as the volumes of various areas of the brain.
When compared to people with no income drops, people with two or more income drops had smaller total brain volume. People with one or more income drops also had reduced connectivity in the brain.
One of the reasons according to researchers could be that people with lower or unstable income may have reduced access to high-quality health care which may result in worse management of diseases like diabetes, or management of unhealthy behaviours such as smoking and drinking. (ANI)

Washington D.C. [USA], Oct 7 (ANI): Cancer patients, irrespective of their treatment type, must receive a custom exercise prescription to protect their heart, states a study.
"Cancer patients are often less active than adults without cancer," said author Dr Flavio D'Ascenzi, University of Siena, Italy. "However, exercise is essential for patients diagnosed with cancer who are under treatment, irrespective of the type of treatment."
"Endurance training is more effective for improving cardiovascular performance and reducing inflammation, but resistance training may be a better starting point for frail cancer patients," explained Dr Flavio D'Ascenzi.
"Other types of exercise, such as inspiratory muscle training, are safe and effective, particularly in those with thoracic cancer; therefore, the specific exercise should be chosen based on individual characteristics," he continued.
Cardiovascular diseases are common side effects in patients with cancer. This is the result of cardiotoxicity, whereby cancer treatment impairs heart function and structure, or accelerated development of the cardiovascular disease, especially when risk factors such as high blood pressure are present.
Furthermore, cardiovascular diseases and cancer often share the same risk factors. Therefore, cancer patients are advised to eat healthily, quit smoking, control their weight, and exercise.
The study published in the 'European Journal of Preventive Cardiology' highlighted the importance of an individual exercise plan for each patient, taking into account personal history, cancer treatment, response to exercise, and personal preferences.
Exercise should start as soon as possible, even before starting treatment such as chemotherapy.
A multidisciplinary team should be involved in formulating an exercise prescription, including oncologists, cardiologists, physical therapists, nurses, nutritionists, and psychologists.
Cardiac evaluation, with exercise testing (and particularly cardiopulmonary exercise testing or lactate testing) to determine response to exercise, is the starting point.
The appropriate 'dose' of exercise (as usually done for a drug) can then be prescribed, including the intensity, type of training, and training volume (hours/minutes of training per week).
"Defining the intensity and volume of exercise is important for maximising the benefits of physical activity while avoiding muscular soreness, fatigue, and sleep disorders," said Dr D'Ascenzi.
Ongoing treatment is not a contraindication to exercise, but patients are urged to consult their doctor before starting a new activity. Specific guidance is provided: for example, patients with low hemoglobin levels should avoid high-intensity activities; those with low platelet levels (needed for blood clotting) should not do contact sports.
Activities that could increase the risk of fracture should be avoided in frail patients. Breathlessness or fatigue must be investigated but, after excluding associated health problems, exercise can help cope with fatigue, which is relatively common in cancer patients. (ANI)

Washington D.C. [USA], Oct 7 (ANI): In a new study, it has been found that aspirin might be capable of reducing the adverse effects of air pollution.
The findings published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine highlight that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin may lessen the effects of air pollution exposure on lung function.
Researchers analyzed a subset of data collected from a cohort of 2,280 male veterans from the greater Boston area who were given tests to determine their lung function. The average age of participants was 73 years.
The researchers examined the relationship between test results, self-reported NSAID use, and ambient particulate matter (PM) and black carbon in the month preceding the test, while accounting for a variety of factors, including the health status of the subject and whether or not he was a smoker.
They found that the use of any NSAID nearly halved the effect of PM on lung function, with the association consistent across all four weekly air pollution measurements from same-day to 28 days prior to the lung function test.
Because most of the people in the study cohort who took NSAIDs used aspirin, the researchers say the modifying effect they observed was mainly from aspirin, but add that effects of non-aspirin NSAIDs are worthy of further exploration.
Researchers speculate that NSAIDs mitigate inflammation brought about by air pollution.
"It is still important to minimize our exposure to air pollution, which is linked to a host of adverse health effects, from cancer to cardiovascular disease," said first and corresponding author Xu Gao, PhD, a post-doctoral research scientist in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at the Columbia Mailman School.

BREAKING: NO MORE SECRETS – Google Achieves “Quantum Supremacy” That Will Soon Render All Cryptocurrency Breakable, All Military Secrets Revealed
Saturday, September 21, 2019 by: Mike Adams
Tags: bitcoin, cryptocurrency, cryptography, encryption, Google, military encryption, quantum computing, quantum supremacy, qubits, secrets
Preliminary report. More detailed analysis coming in 24 hours at this site. According to a report published at Fortune.com, Google has achieved “quantum supremacy” with a 53-qubit quantum computer. From reading the report, it is obvious that Fortune.com editors, who should be applauded for covering this story, really have little clue about the implications of this revelation. Here’s what this means for cryptocurrency, military secrets and all secrets which are protected by cryptography.
Notably, NASA published the scientific paper at this link, then promptly removed it as soon as the implications of this technology started to become apparent to a few observers. (The link above is now dead. The cover-up begins…) However, the Financial Times reported on the paper before it was removed. Google is now refusing to verify the existence of the paper.
Here’s the upshot of what this “quantum supremacy” means for Google and the world:
- Google’s new quantum processor took just 200 seconds to complete a computing task that would normally require 10,000 years on a supercomputer.
- A 53-qubit quantum computer can break any 53-bit cryptography in mere seconds, or in fractions of sections in certain circumstances.
- Bitcoin’s transactions are currently protected by 256-bit encryption. Once Google scales its quantum computing to 256 qubits, it’s over for Bitcoin (and all 256-bit crypto), since Google (or anyone with the technology) could easily break the encryption protecting all crypto transactions, then redirect all such transactions to its own wallet. See below why Google’s own scientists predict 256-qubit computing will be achieved by 2022.
- In effect, “quantum supremacy” means the end of cryptographic secrets, which is the very basis for cryptocurrency.
- In addition, all military-grade encryption will become pointless as Google’s quantum computers expand their qubits into the 512, 1024 or 2048 range, rendering all modern cryptography obsolete. In effect, Google’s computer could “crack” any cryptography in mere seconds.
- The very basis of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies rests in the difficulty of factoring very large numbers. Classical computing can only compute the correct factoring answers through brute force trial-and-error, requiring massive computing power and time (in some cases, into the trillions of years, depending on the number of encryption bits). Quantum computing, it could be said, solves the factoring problem in 2^n dimensions, where n is the number of bits of encryption. Unlike traditional computing bits that can only hold a value of 0 or 1 (but not both), qubits can simultaneously hold both values, meaning an 8-qubit computer can simultaneously represent all values between 0 and 255 at the same time. A deeper discussion of quantum computing is beyond the scope of this news brief, but its best application is breaking cryptography.
- The number of qubits in Google’s quantum computers will double at least every year, according to the science paper that has just been published. As Fortune reports, “Further, they predict that quantum computing power will ‘grow at a double exponential rate,’ besting even the exponential rate that defined Moore’s Law, a trend that observed traditional computing power to double roughly every two years.”
- As a conservative estimate, this means Google will achieve > 100 qubits by 2020, and > 200 qubits by 2021, then > 400 qubits by the year 2022.
- Once Google’s quantum computers exceed 256 qubits, all cryptocurrency encryption that uses 256-bit encryption will be null and void.
- By 2024, Google will be able to break nearly all military-grade encryption, rendering military communications fully transparent to Google.
- Over the last decade, Google has become the most evil corporation in the world, wholly dedicated to the suppression of human knowledge through censorship, demonetization and de-platforming of non-mainstream information sources. Google has blocked nearly all websites offering information on natural health and holistic medicine while blocking all videos and web pages that question the corrupt scientific establishment on topics like vaccines, pesticides and GMOs. Google has proven it is the most corrupt, evil entity in the world, and now it has the technology to break all cryptography and achieve “omniscience” in our modern technological society. Google is a front for Big Pharma and communist China. Google despises America, hates human health and has already demonstrated it is willing to steal elections to install the politicians it wants.
- With this quantum technology, Google will be able to break all U.S. military encryption and forward all “secret” communications to the communist Chinese. (Yes, Google hates America and wants to see America destroyed while building out a Red China-style system of social control and total enslavement.)
- Google’s quantum eavesdropping system, which might as well be called, “Setec Astronomy,” will scrape up all the secrets of all legislators, Supreme Court justices, public officials and CEOs. Nothing will be safe from the Google Eye of Sauron. Everyone will be “blackmailable” with Google’s quantum computing power.
- Google will rapidly come to dominate the world, controlling most of the money, all speech, all politics, most science and technology, most of the news media and all public officials. Google will become the dominant controlling authoritarian force on planet Earth, and all humans will be subservient to its demands. Democracy, truth and freedom will be annihilated.
Interestingly, I publicly predicted this exact scenario over two years ago in a podcast that was banned by YouTube and then re-posted on Brighteon.com a year later. This podcast directly states that the development of quantum computing would render cryptocurrency obsolete:
Beyond Skynet: Google’s 3 pillars of tech: AI, Quantum computing and humanoid robotics
Google has been investing heavily in three key areas of research:
- Artificial intelligence (machine learning, etc.)
- Quantum computing
- Humanoid robotics
When you combine these three, you get something that’s far beyond Skynet. You eventually create an all-seeing AI intelligence that will know all secrets and control all financial transactions. With AI quickly outpacing human intelligence, and with quantum computing rendering all secrets fully exposed to the AI system, it’s only a matter of time before the Google Super Intellect System (or so it might be named) enslaves humanity and decides we are no longer necessary for its very existence. The humanoid robots translate the will of the AI system into the physical world, allowing Google’s AI intellect system to carry out mass genocide of humans, tear town human cities or carry out anything else that requires “muscle” in the physical world. All such robots will, of course, be controlled by the AI intellect.
Google is building a doomsday Skynet system, in other words, and they are getting away with it because nobody in Washington D.C. understands mathematics or science.
A more detailed analysis of this will appear on this site tomorrow. Bottom line? Humanity had better start building mobile EMP weapons and learning how to kill robots, or it’s over for the human race.
In my opinion, we should pull the plug on Google right now. We may already be too late.
