Long Dismissed, Chronic Lyme Disease Is Finally Getting Its Moment
Chronic Lyme disease, historically dismissed by the medical community, is now receiving renewed attention, partly due to similarities with Long COVID. Patients like Sue Gray, who endured decades of misdiagnosis and untreated symptoms, exemplify the struggles faced by many. Gray’s eventual diagnosis, decades after a tick bite, underscores the inadequacies in current diagnostic methods. Lyme disease affects nearly half a million Americans annually, with up to 10% developing post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS), leading to prolonged symptoms such as fatigue and cognitive issues. The U.S. National Institutes of Health has doubled its Lyme research funding since 2015, fueling studies into new diagnostic techniques and treatments, including those inspired by cancer research. Researchers are investigating immune system differences in patients with chronic symptoms to improve early intervention strategies. This increased focus, driven by the broader acceptance of post-infectious conditions like Long COVID, aims to develop better diagnostic tools, effective treatments, and greater acceptance of chronic Lyme within the medical field, offering hope to those who have long suffered in silence.

Fish oil supplements may raise risk of stroke, heart issues, study suggests
New research indicates that regular use of fish oil supplements might increase the risk of first-time stroke and atrial fibrillation (AFib) among individuals with no prior heart conditions. Analyzing data from over 415,000 people aged 40 to 69 in the UK Biobank study, the researchers found that regular fish oil users had a 13% higher risk of developing AFib and a 5% higher risk of having a stroke. Although fish oil is commonly consumed for its heart-health benefits, the study raises concerns about the purity and consistency of over-the-counter fish oil products, which can contain contaminants and heavy metals like mercury. Prescription-strength fish oil, while purer, has also shown potential risks for AFib and stroke, necessitating caution among doctors. Experts recommend obtaining omega-3 fatty acids from food sources like sardines and wild-caught salmon rather than supplements. They also stress the importance of testing omega-3 levels before supplementation. The study challenges the widespread belief in the universal benefits of fish oil supplements and suggests a more cautious approach to their use.

Essential Fatty Acids: A Potential Solution for Post-COVID-19 Long-Haul Manifestations
A study published in Lipids in Health and Disease proposes that essential fatty acids (EFAs) might help alleviate post-COVID-19 long-haul symptoms. Authored by Undurti N. Das, the research suggests that deficiencies in EFAs and disruptions in their metabolism could contribute to persistent symptoms experienced by long-haul COVID-19 patients. EFAs play crucial roles in modulating immune responses and maintaining tissue health, with their metabolites influencing cytokine release, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue repair. These properties indicate that EFAs could mitigate symptoms such as fatigue, cognitive impairments, and cardiac issues associated with long-haul COVID-19. Although further research is needed to confirm these findings and fully understand the mechanisms involved, EFAs offer a promising avenue for managing long-haul COVID-19 symptoms. The study underscores the potential of EFAs in addressing the complex challenges posed by prolonged post-COVID-19 conditions, providing a hopeful outlook for affected individuals.

High levels of weedkiller found in more than half of sperm samples, study finds
A recent study found that over 55% of sperm samples from a French infertility clinic contained high levels of glyphosate, the most commonly used weedkiller. This discovery raises significant concerns about glyphosate’s impact on reproductive health. The study also identified evidence of DNA damage and oxidative stress in seminal plasma correlated with glyphosate levels, suggesting adverse effects on fertility. Glyphosate, widely used in agriculture and residential settings, has been linked to various health issues, including cancer, prompting calls for stricter regulations. The study’s findings indicate that glyphosate levels in sperm were four times higher than in blood, highlighting the chemical’s potential danger to reproductive systems. Agricultural workers and smokers showed the highest levels of glyphosate. The researchers advocate for applying the precautionary principle in regulating glyphosate to protect human health, as its widespread use and associated risks continue to spark global debate and regulatory scrutiny.

2 Toxic Weedkillers Linked to Serious Illness Found in Pregnant Women
A study published in Agrochemicals revealed that pregnant women in the Midwest U.S. had detectable levels of the herbicides dicamba and 2,4-D, linked to severe health issues. Researchers analyzed urine samples from two cohorts (2010-2012 and 2020-2022) and found an increase in dicamba levels in the latter period, while 2,4-D levels also rose but were not statistically significant. Both chemicals are associated with adverse health effects, including neurodegenerative diseases like ALS, cancer, endocrine disruption, and metabolic disorders. The study emphasized the negative impacts on human reproductive health, noting correlations between glyphosate levels and oxidative stress in seminal plasma. The research adds to the body of evidence suggesting the harmful effects of these herbicides, highlighting the need for stricter regulation and caution in their use, especially given their widespread application in agriculture and residential settings.

Experts find cardiometabolic risk signs in kids young as 3. Here is the food they say is linked
A study published in JAMA Network Open links ultraprocessed food consumption in children as young as three to increased cardiometabolic risk factors, such as higher body mass index, systolic blood pressure, and waist-to-height ratio. Researchers from Rovira I Virgili University analyzed data from over 1,400 children aged 3 to 6 and found that those consuming the most ultraprocessed foods showed early signs of cardiometabolic issues. Ultraprocessed foods, which include sodas, chips, and packaged meals, contain ingredients rarely used in home kitchens and additives to enhance flavor and preservation. Experts emphasize the importance of replacing ultraprocessed foods with healthier options to prevent future health problems. The study underscores how early nutrition influences lifelong health, urging parents and institutions to promote fresh, minimally processed foods to mitigate the risks of diabetes, obesity, and related complications in adulthood.

Federal Court Strikes Down Colorado University’s ‘Unconstitutional’ COVID Vaccine Mandate
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit ruled that the University of Colorado Anschutz School of Medicine’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate was unconstitutional, citing “religious animus” that violated the First Amendment. The court found that the university’s exemption policy unfairly discriminated against certain religious beliefs, favoring those opposed to all immunizations while denying others. The lawsuit, brought by the Thomas More Society on behalf of 17 students and employees, challenged the mandate’s uneven application of religious exemptions. The ruling may impact similar cases, including a Children’s Health Defense lawsuit against Rutgers University. The decision emphasizes that public institutions cannot favor some religions over others and must uphold the constitutional rights of individuals seeking religious exemptions. This case highlights the ongoing legal battles over vaccine mandates and religious freedoms in educational settings.
