Health & Wellness News + Research August + September 2018: The WellBe Wrap-up -The WellBe Podcast with Adrienne Nolan-Smith (getwellbe)

By WellBe (getwellbe) by Adrienne Nolan-Smith

In the August + September 2018 WellBe Wrap-up we covered a number of big news stories that dropped, as well as a few studies that have big implications for our health. Here are the top 8 that we thought you needed to know to protect yourself and your family, and which show some big moments in the wellness and integrative health movement. Major pediatrician group, The American Academy of Pediatrics, issued a statement warning of harmful effects of plastic in kids’ food. A jury awarded $289 million in damages to Dewayne Johnson in historic verdict. Johnson claimed that his terminal cancer was caused by Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer. Two new studies ranked different sports based on their impact on longevity and mental health. The winners both surprised us and clued us into the power of community. New research shows a link between estrogen and migraines, which is a big break in the puzzle surrounding the root cause of migraines. Plant-based meal options at hospitals are now the law in California, and a new study shows that healthy meal delivery post-discharge from a hospital helps reduce 30-day hospital readmissions. A top breast cancer doctor and the chief medical officer at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center was exposed for failing to report millions of dollars from pharmaceutical companies. He then resigned. The EPA has been busy undoing regulations that protect the environment (and our health), including weakening regulations of coal-fired power plants, relaxing requirements for dealing with methane leaks, and re-assessing the use of asbestos. But an appeals court overturned the EPA’s denial to halt the use of a toxic chemical on food crops. The FDA approved the first ever digital app to be marketed as a contraceptive birth control method.
