first_imgSolskjaer pleased for debutant Chong: He lifted Man Utd crowdby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer felt Tahith Chong lifted the home support in his debut for their 2-0 FA Cup win over Reading.Chong, 19, replaced Juan Mata in the 64th minute of United’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Reading to become the 229th academy graduate to make their first-team bow for the club.”He had two or three really good moments, as you do when you’re young,” Solskjaer said. “You don’t run the game as a first performance for a 19-year-old.”But he got the crowd going, and has shown one or two glimpses of what he can do, he has in training anyway. And the game wasn’t won, it was 2-0 and was still go out there and perform. It’s not like it was 4-0 and it’s just a party, so he did well defensively as well and I think he’ll remember this for a long, long time.”He added: “The pleasing thing is we’re through and another clean sheet, 2-0 flatters us a bit because I think they played some great stuff, but then again we could have had three or four towards the end. The second goal was excellent with Alexis [Sanchez] getting Romelu [Lukaku] in, so individual quality managed to get us through, to be fair.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgReviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Oct 23 2018The more weeks a women takes pain-reliving medication during pregnancy, the earlier their daughters enter puberty. This is shown by a new study from Aarhus University.Breasts, pimples and menstruation, hair growth in places where there was none previously, and unpredictable mood swings. Welcome to puberty, which for the majority of girls begins when they are around ten or eleven years old – or even earlier – if the mother has taken painkillers with paracetamol (which in Denmark sell under names such as e.g. Panodil, Pinex or Pamol) during pregnancy.As the first in the world, researchers from Aarhus University have examined the correlation between the intake of the analgesic paracetamol during pregnancy and girls and boys pubertal development. The results have just been published in the international journal, American Journal of Epidemiology.Related StoriesCannabis use during pregnancy may cause premature birthIt is okay for women with lupus to get pregnant with proper care, says new studyWomen’s pre-pregnancy obesity changes breast milk contents which can affect infant growth”We found a ‘dose-response’ correlation. That is to say, the more weeks with paracetamol during pregnancy, the earlier puberty in girls, but not in boys,” says PhD student Andreas Ernst from the Department of Public Health, Aarhus University, who is behind the study.The study is based on the largest collection of puberty data in the Danish birth cohort (BSIG.dk). A group of around 100,000 women provided detailed information about their use of paracetamol three times during their pregnancy. A total of 15,822 children, 7,697 boys and 8,125 girls born to these mothers between 2000-2003 were followed from the age of eleven and throughout puberty with questionnaires every six months about several different aspects of their development.Puberty arrives earlierThe study showed that girls on average enter puberty between one-and-a-half and three months earlier, if the mother took painkillers for more than twelve weeks during pregnancy.”While entering puberty one-and-a-half to three months earlier may seem unimportant, when taken together with the frequent use of paracetamol during pregnancy, our findings ought to make people take notice. Our results are certainly not the decisive factor that should change current practice, but the perception of paracetamol as ‘the safe and harmless choice’ during pregnancy ought to be challenged,” explains Andreas Ernst.Worldwide, the average consumption of paracetamol has been increasing, and studies suggest that more than fifty per cent of pregnant women make use of painkillers containing paracetamol at least once during their pregnancy.”As earlier pubertal development has previously been tied to an increased risk of more frequent and serious diseases in adulthood such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and testicular and breast cancer, it’s important to identify possible causes of early puberty so we can prevent this development,” says Andreas Ernst.

(Editor)Jan 24 2019In an International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry study of individuals diagnosed with dementia in the United Kingdom, people from minority ethnic backgrounds (Asian and Black patients) had lower cognitive scores and were younger when they were diagnosed with dementia than White patients.Related StoriesWhy women who work are less likely to develop dementiaMetformin use linked to lower risk of dementia in African Americans with type 2 diabetesHealthy lifestyle lowers dementia risk despite genetic predispositionThe study used data from electronic health records and included 9,380 White patients, 642 Asian patients, and 2,008 Black patients who were diagnosed with dementia in two London mental health trusts between 2008 and 2016.The study’s authors noted that there is a need to understand these inequalities, to see if dementia prevention initiatives should be tailored by ethnic group and to ensure dementia diagnosis across all ethnic groups is obtained as early as possible.”This study is the first to investigate age and cognitive impairment at the time of dementia diagnosis in South Asians. The earlier age at diagnosis indicates that dementia prevalence in South Asians is likely to be higher in this group than in the White British population,” said lead author Dr. Naaheed Mukadam, of University College London.last_img read more
