Google Searches Can Help Us Find Emerging Covid-19 Outbreaks - The New York TimesGoogle Searches Can Help Us Find Emerging Covid-19 Outbreaks - The New York TimesPosted: 06 Apr 2020 12:00 AM PDT Every day, millions of people around the world type their health symptoms into Google. We can use these searches to help detect unknown Covid-19 outbreaks, particularly in parts of the world with poor testing infrastructure.To see the potential information lying in plain sight in Google data, consider searches for "I can't smell." There is now strong evidence that anosmia, or loss of smell, is a symptom of Covid-19, with some estimates suggesting that 30-60 percent of people with the disease experience this symptom. In the United States, in the week ending this past Saturday, searches for "I can't smell" were highest in New York, New Jersey, Louisiana, and Michigan — four of the states with the highest prevalence of Covid-19. In fact, searches related to loss of smel…

Health According to Harvard scientists, eating an egg everyday is good for your health - Ladders

Health According to Harvard scientists, eating an egg everyday is good for your health - Ladders

Posted: 25 Mar 2020 02:31 PM PDT

Egg lovers of the world rejoice. The next time someone starts giving you grief about your breakfast of choice, you've got some Harvard-backed research to back up your counter-argument. 

Despite their undeniable deliciousness, eggs have been considered a less than optimal food choice when it comes to heart health for quite some time. A recent study conducted at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, however, has concluded that enjoying eggs in moderation shouldn't put you at any higher risk of developing heart problems or cardiovascular disease.

Eating up to one egg per day carries absolutely no association with an increased chance of cardiovascular disease, according to their findings. Suddenly, all those people who told you to stick to oatmeal each morning have some egg on their face.

"Recent studies reignited the debate on this controversial topic, but our study provides compelling evidence supporting the lack of an appreciable association between moderate egg consumption and cardiovascular disease," explains first author Jean-Philippe Drouin-Chartier, a visiting scientist in the Department of Nutrition, in a press release.

The subject of eggs' influence on cardiovascular outcomes has been a hot topic in the medical world for decades. Just this past year, three separate research projects have been released with contradictory findings.

This new piece of research actually builds off of one of the first comprehensive studies on this topic; a 1999 study that concluded there was no link whatsoever between eggs and cardiovascular disease. That initiative was led by Frank Hu, Professor of Nutrition and Epidemiology, chair of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard. Professor Hu was also a co-author of this new study.

So, this time around the research team analyzed health information on 173,563 women and 90,214 men who had been tracked for over three decades as part of a series of separate health research projects. At the beginning of the tracking period, all of the participants were free of any cardiovascular problems, type-2 diabetes, or cancer. 

Over the following 32 years, each individual's diet habits were surveyed periodically. Other, potentially influential, factors were also considered such as body mass index and red meat consumption specifically. 

Just in case all that wasn't enough, the study's authors also conducted the largest known meta-analysis on this topic ever, which encompassed 28 prior studies including 1.7 million people. 

If one aspect of this project is clear, it's that the researchers certainly had enough data to work with. Ultimately, they found no association between moderate egg consumption and cardiovascular disease. 

These results are definitely encouraging for egg advocates, but the keyword in all of this is moderation. All bets are off if you read this and start eating eggs each day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Eggs are best suited as a portion of a healthy breakfast, not the entire meal.

"There is a range of other foods that can be included in a healthy breakfast, such as whole grain toasts, plain yogurt, and fruits." concludes study co-author Shilpa Bhupathiraju, a research scientist in the Harvard Chan School Department of Nutrition.

Analysis of the Global Hot Melt Adhesives Market - Forecast to 2026 - ResearchAndMarkets.com - Associated Press

Posted: 20 Mar 2020 03:01 AM PDT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 20, 2020--

The "Analysis of the Global Hot Melt Adhesives Market, Forecast to 2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

This research study analyzes the adoption of hot melt adhesives (HMA) in various applications across the globe. This global deliverable covers 6 key regions - North America, Europe, India, Rest of Asia (ROA), Middle East (ME) and Rest of the World (ROW) markets; regional analysis is presented at the segment level to illustrate the regional dynamics and opportunities for across applications.

This study analyzes the key applications for HMA from many aspects. The levels of penetration of HMA in various applications are also analyzed. Further, the study analyzes the current market size in terms of volumes and revenues based on the average prices of products in the market.

It also provides a 7-year forecast based on the expected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) at which the respective application segments are likely to grow. The study bases the forecast on various drivers and restraints along with regional, product, and technology trends. In addition, it also analyzes key market participants and the key competitive factors that are critical for them to gain a strong foothold in the market. To assess the current size of the HMA market and to evaluate its future potential, key growth opportunities and restraining factors are taken into consideration. Price variations and factors impacting the prices of HMA based on the adoption of various chemistries in various applications are also analyzed.

The research service is primarily segmented into packaging, non-wovens, wood-working and furniture, automotive, boon-binding, construction and others (includes medical, electronics, footwear and textiles). Tapes and labels used in packaging, durable tapes such as wire harness tapes, transfer tapes, temporary bonding tapes used in electronics and automotive applications are included in the respective segments. Non-wovens primarily include hygiene products such as baby diapers, training pants, feminine hygiene and adult incontinence products.

Each of these applications are further segmented into various chemistries such as ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), poly-olefins, polyurethane (PUR), polyamides, rubber-based and others (includes silicones and polyesters). Another level of sub-segmentation includes the splits between reactive and non-reactive HMA. Reactive chemistries are largely based on PUR HMA. Pressure-sensitive HMA and non-pressure sensitive HMA is another level of sub-segmentation that is analyzed in the study. Pressure-sensitive adhesives are largely rubber based and are predominantly styrene block co-polymers: styrene isoprene styrene block copolymer (SIS), styrene isoprene-butadiene styrene (SIBS) and styrene-ethylene/butylene-styrene (SEBS). These are analyzed for the 7 application segments considered in the analysis.
