Health department scrambles to reopen restaurants

Posted: January 14, 2014 at 10:45 pm


Kanawha County health inspector David Winowich inspects the kitchen in Adelphia, a downtown Charleston restaurant, on Tuesday. Health inspectors are rushing to re-inspect local restaurants following the water emergency.

Kanawha County health inspectors are working late and starting early to get as many local restaurants as possible back up and running following last week's water emergency.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Kanawha County health inspectors are working late and starting early to get as many local restaurants as possible back up and running following last week's water emergency.

"I'm losing $6,000 to $8,000 a day," said Deno Stanley, owner of Adelphia Sports Bar in downtown Charleston. "Three or four more days of this and I don't think I could recover."

On Thursday, Freedom Industries spilled 7,500 gallons of a chemical used in the coal industry into the Elk River in Charleston. The chemical was quickly sucked into the water intakes at West Virginia American Water's water treatment plant downstream, where charcoal filters failed to strip the chemical out.

The chemical contaminated the water supply for about 300,000 people, and prompted state and local officials to order residents in parts of nine West Virginia counties not to use their water for drinking, cooking or bathing. The Kanawha-Charleston Health Department, which oversees health concerns in Kanawha and Putnam counties, immediately ordered all restaurants and food establishments in both counties to shut down immediately.

Adelphia was one of a handful of local restaurants given conditional permission to reopen over the weekend using bottled water for cooking and cleaning, but the effect of the water ban was devastating to local eateries.

Water company officials began to lift the water use ban on Monday, after levels of the chemical dropped to levels they deemed safe. Customers in downtown Charleston and the city's East End were told they could flush their water systems and again start using the water.

Nasandra Wright, sanitarian supervisor for the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department, said health inspectors then went into high gear to re-inspect local restaurants and give them permission to reopen.

Wright said restaurants at the Charleston Town Center mall were inspected and cleared to re-open Monday night. Aided by health inspectors from other counties and National Guard members from neighboring states, inspectors worked until midnight Monday and started again at 7 a.m. Tuesday.

What is the secret to your longevity?

Posted: at 10:44 pm


Human beings and other primates have an extremely slow metabolism rate. They burn almost 50 percent fewer calories each day than other mammals, which is why they have a longer lifespan, say scientists.

The key to longevity is a slow metabolism rate, say scientists.

Humans and other primates burn 50 percent fewer calories each day than other mammals and due to their low metabolism rate, they have a longer life span, according to a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Overall, 17 primate species, such as humans, gorillas, and mouse lemurs were examined for the purpose of the study.

The international group of scientists who carried out the study worked with animals in zoos, sanctuaries in Africa, and in the wild.

Daily energy expenditure of the primates was calculated using a technique called "doubly labeled water," Herman Pontzer, an anthropologist at Hunter College in New York and the lead author of the study, told The Monitor.

Water contains hydrogen and oxygen. Some of the hydrogen and oxygen in the water were being replaced with their variants, also called isotopes, Dr. Pontzer says. After animals drink water, these isotopes would then act as tracers and their presence could be found in their urine. By determining the concentration of isotopes from the urine sample, Pontzer and his team determined how much carbon dioxide the body produced. Over a 10-day period, scientists measured the number of calories primates burned, says Pontzer.

Comparing the results of the experiment with similar data from other studies, the team compared daily energy expenditure among primates to that of other mammals, according to a press release by Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo. Chimpanzees and gorillasfrom the zoo were examined for the study.

‘Dos’ and ‘don’ts’ for a longer life

Posted: at 10:44 pm


One minute, coffee is good for you and the next minute, its bad. Then, were told wine will help you live longer and then were told it wont.

Wouldnt it be nice to have a guide to longevity that is easy to understand?

Dr. David Agus has provided just that. A professor of medicine and engineering at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine and Viterbi School of Engineering, Agus shared his tips for longevity in his new book, A Short Guide to a Long Life.

Agus book is divided into three sections: What to Do, What to Avoid, and Doctors Orders. And his Dos and Donts list includes some surprising advice, such as staying away from the recent health craze of juicing.

As soon as you put fruits and vegetables into a blender, they get oxidized and degrade almost instantaneously, Agus said. Everybodys looking for a short cut, but the key is to eat the real food.

Agus also advises people to live with a significant other, have children, caffeinate in moderation and do DNA testing. Conversely, he cautions people against wearing stilettos, detoxing and taking vitamins.

Burning fewer calories: the elixir for longevity

Posted: at 10:44 pm


New research shows that humans and other primates burn 50% fewer calories each day than other mammals. The study, published January 13 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, suggests that these remarkably slow metabolisms explain why humans and other primates grow up so slowly and live such long lives. The study also reports that primates in zoos expend as much energy as those in the wild, suggesting that physical activity may have less of an impact on daily energy expenditure than is often thought.

Most mammals, like the family dog or pet hamster, live a fast- paced life, reaching adulthood in a matter of months, reproducing prodigiously (if we let them), and dying in their teens if not well before. By comparison, humans and our primate relatives (apes, monkeys, tarsiers, lorises, and lemurs) have long childhoods, reproduce infrequently, and live exceptionally long lives. Primates' slow pace of life has long puzzled biologists because the mechanisms underlying it were unknown.

An international team of scientists working with primates in zoos, sanctuaries, and in the wild examined daily energy expenditure in 17 primate species, from gorillas to mouse lemurs, to test whether primates' slow pace of life results from a slow metabolism. Using a safe and non-invasive technique known as "doubly labeled water," which tracks the body's production of carbon dioxide, the researchers measured the number of calories that primates burned over a 10-day period. Combining these measurements with similar data from other studies, the team compared daily energy expenditure among primates to that of other mammals.

"The results were a real surprise," said Herman Pontzer, an anthropologist at Hunter College in New York and the lead author of the study. "Humans, chimpanzees, baboons, and other primates expend only half the calories we'd expect for a mammal. To put that in perspective, a human even someone with a very physically active lifestyle would need to run a marathon each day just to approach the average daily energy expenditure of a mammal their size."

This dramatic reduction in metabolic rate, previously unknown for primates, accounts for their slow pace of life. All organisms need energy to grow and reproduce, and energy expenditure can also contribute to aging. The slow rates of growth, reproduction, and aging among primates match their slow rate of energy expenditure, indicating that evolution has acted on metabolic rate to shape primates' distinctly slow lives.

Natural alternatives to facelifts

Posted: at 10:43 pm


14 JANUARY 2014 Non-invasive anti-aging treatments have been popular for years but there is still some confusion about what actually gets rid of your wrinkles.

From facial acupuncture to ultrasounds, HELLO! Online takes a look at six natural alternatives to face lifts...

Facial acupuncture

Traditional cosmetic surgeons will tell you that acupuncture wont really make you look more youthful, but acupuncture specialist Jean Pierre Cousin says otherwise. "Acupuncture helps the circulation of blood and the distribution of fluids in the face, which rapidly gives a better glow to the skin and improves the general appearance," he said.

" Following the procedure, which involves the penetration of needles in to the skin at various points, skin should be smoother, with shallow lines often erased and a softening of deeper lines. I would expect to see some changes within two to three sessions."

Pelleve

The Pelleve system uses radioactive waves to induce collagen and with virtually no pain. With constant gradual energy, heat builds up between the layer of skin and fat on your face leading to the collagen to contract and result in improved quality in the appearance of your skin. The treatment, which requires no recovery time and can be over in 45 minutes, is ideal for the delicate eye area and top lip lines.

Chemical peel

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments, chemical peels can remove layers of skin and help to remove age spots, acne and deep wrinkles. There are lots of different types of peel, and you should always discuss your options with a qualified doctor first. Two of the most popular include the glycolic peel, a mild peel that is recommended for freshening up dull and tired looking skin, or the salicylic peel which is best for oily or sensitive skin with fine lines or wrinkles, or undergoing acne treatment.
