People experiencing hair loss could benefit from a trip to the dentist

Anyone experiencing sudden patches of hair loss could benefit from a trip to the dentist – according to university research.

Alopecia areata, which affects millions in the UK, is an auto-immune disorder where the body produces antibodies that attack the hair follicles.

The hair loss is often in small patches, which are sometimes barely noticeable. But if these patches join up they can become more obvious and lead to anxiety and loss of self confidence.

Also known as localised alopecia, it is estimated to plague around 65,000 people in the UK and can appear at any age – with 80 per cent of cases surfacing before the age of 40.

Stress is thought to be one one potential trigger, but it appears tooth infections could also be a cause according to research carried out by the University of Granada in Spain.

Why transgender people are ignored by modern medicine

In some cases, the issues are baked right into the heart of our medical systems.

Consider this: if you were to look through every single medical record in the UK – all 55 million – you won’t find a single record labelled as belonging to a transgender person. This is also true for those assembled by many providers in the US.

“You can register as male or female, but you can still only choose between these two options – you can’t say if you are transgender or non-binary,” explains Kamilla Kamaruddin, a doctor who works for the National Health Service (NHS) and transgender woman. “So that’s quite difficult.”

Instead doctors must rely on their patient to tell them.  

“Sometimes this can be okay,” says Dina Greene, a clinical chemist and expert in transgender health at the University of Washington, Seattle. In many cases, if someone is going to see a

Some people turn to herbal medicine for virus without proof

NEW DELHI —
With no approved drugs for the new coronavirus, some people are turning to alternative medicines, often with governments promoting them.

This is most evident in India and China, densely populated countries with a deep history and tradition of touting such treatments, and where there’s sometimes limited access to conventional medicine.

In India, where a lockdown of its 1.3 billion residents is underway, the government faced criticism after claiming some treatments might help prevent infections. In China, where the pandemic began, officials made unsubstantiated claims that traditional medicine was key to fighting the virus. In Venezuela, where the health care system is severely crimped, President Nicolas Maduro pitched drinking an herbal tea.

The World Health Organization had advised against taking “traditional herbal remedies” on its website. It later acknowledged that some were turning to alternative medicine “to alleviate some of the milder symptoms of COVID-19,” WHO spokesperson Tarik

Social Determinants of Health | Healthy People 2020

Goal

Create social and physical environments that promote good health for all.

Overview

Health starts in our homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities. We know that taking care of ourselves by eating well and staying active, not smoking, getting the recommended immunizations and screening tests, and seeing a doctor when we are sick all influence our health. Our health is also determined in part by access to social and economic opportunities; the resources and supports available in our homes, neighborhoods, and communities; the quality of our schooling; the safety of our workplaces; the cleanliness of our water, food, and air; and the nature of our social interactions and relationships. The conditions in which we live explain in part why some Americans are healthier than others and why Americans more generally are not as healthy as they could be.

Healthy People 2020 highlights the importance of addressing the social determinants of
