Discussion Peanut allergy is an increasing problem with ~2% prevalence in the United States. It is also the leading cause of food-related death. The LEAP trial (Learning Early about Peanut Allergy trial) was a randomized trial of early introduction of peanut foods to try to prevent peanut allergy. It found a significant decrease in peanut allergy at 60 months of age with early introduction of peanut foods to infants. This finding occurred in participants with baseline negative skin testing (13.7% in peanut avoidance group versus 1.9% in peanut consumption group) or those with measureable peanut skin testing at study entry (35.3% in peanut avoidance group versus 10.6% in peanut consumption group).

Why You Should Always, Always Check Your Sunscreen's Expiration Date

Picture me, age 14: Blond, blue-eyed and pasty-pale. It was a scorching hot weekend in June, and I was on a three-day camping trip with my dad. As two fair-skinned, freckle-faced Caucasians, we diligently applied sunscreen — SPF 45 — each morning before emerging from our tent, and every couple of hours thereafter. Coppertone would have been proud. Sunday evening on the way home, though, I felt red and hot. I could see the signs of sunburn emerging, and I felt tired and dizzy from too much time in the sun. When I awoke on Monday morning, my shoulders and upper back were covered in second-degree burns, oozing, pussy blisters screaming across my skin. Getting dressed was a non-starter — even the lightest, gentlest fabrics felt like daggers on my shoulders. I was a mess....

In reality, the study results aren’t as cut and dried as that. The meta-analysis in question was published in The Journal of Pain in December 2016, and it’s making waves again (we get it — the weather warms up, everyone gets extra excited about the prospect of a cold beer, us included). In the meta-analysis, researchers looked at 18 different studies involving 404 total participants in an effort to study beer’s potential to dull pain intensity and boost pain threshold. They found that achieving a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.08, or three to four drinks, was associ...

This Man Turned His Cringe-Worthy Sunburn Into A Funny PSA

When sportswriter and commentator Stephen Campbell got a bad sunburn, he didn’t try to hide it. Instead, he turned his terrible burn into a teachable moment while filming a video for the website he works for, called Odds Shark.  “Before I start this video I’d like to take a moment to talk about a very important issue,” Campbell said. “It’s imperative to wear sunscreen when you’re outside on a sunny day. How important? Take a look at my face right now unless you want to be an idiot like me and come into work with the most ridiculous sunburn in the history of mankind. Slap that s**t on.”  He jokingly added, “Shout out to the white line at the top of my face, you’re the real MVP.”  In a tweet, Campbell said that ...

Why Is Therapy So Expensive?

After a bout of breakup-induced anxiety and depression, 31-year-old New York City resident Emily Taylor decided to look for a therapist. But finding a mental health professional to accept her Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield insurance plan proved to be nearly impossible. “I spent days looking for therapists near me that were covered by my insurance,” Taylor said. “For the very few I did find, I spent over five hours on the phone trying to get appointments, [only] to find that they were either not accepting new patients or the wait time was two months.” Taylor was able to locate plenty of highly reviewed therapists available for private pay, however. But since the average cost of therapy in New York is $200 to $300 per session, according to one report, that was...

6 Unexpected Ways Your Body Changes After Pregnancy

You can’t seem to get rid of your bellyIt’s no surprise that for many women, muscles in their abdomen separate to accommodate the baby. The thing is, it can stay that way after birth. When the bands of muscles, which run parallel down your belly, separate, they leave behind a space in between, a condition called diastasis recti. Without the ab muscles in the middle of your belly to hold everything in, you might see a bulge or ridge of soft tissue there, aka a pooch that just won’t go away. In fact, one-third of women still had it even one year postpartum, reported a 2016 study in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. “Some women are alarmed that they can lean forward or do a sit-up and see this bulge in between these muscles,” explains Jonathan Schaffir, MD,...

Doctors Say Those Lists Of 'Foods For Clear Skin' Are Total Bull

We want clear, glowing skin as much as anyone else. The internet and magazines will tell you how to eat your way there with chia seeds, oily fish, mushrooms and complex carbs.  But here’s the problem: It is not possible to directly improve your complexion through diet, according to Jon Hanifin, MD and professor of dermatology at Oregon Health and Science University School of Medicine.  “I don’t know why anybody would be advertising foods to eat for glowing skin,” Hanifin told HuffPost. “I have a feeling that maybe this comes from people trying to sell health supplements.” There is indeed research about the effect of food on your skin, and some of it is supportive. For example, a 2007 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition foun...
