    The authors conclude that this large observational study suggests ACEI or ARB therapy is associated with an improved survival and a lower risk of cardiovascular events in patients with aortic stenosis.
  • A Review of the Clinical Effects of Green Tea: Up-to-date Reasons to Imbibe

    We all know that we should be drinking more green tea; every few days, either the media or medical journals are touting a new use for the Asian staple. Can it really cure breast cancer while preventing liver disease, simultaneously increasing knee range of motion in people suffering from osteroarthritis? The answer is "possibly, yes," but an evidence-based review refines the glowing reports with some clinical pearls, dosing specifics, and hopeful avenues of future research, as detailed below.

    Participation in Weight Watchers resulted in a greater weight loss over a year than did clinical intervention in a primary care office.
  • 15 to Life – Limited Exercise and Mortality Risk

  • Chinese Herbal Remedy for H1N1

    Thousands of Chinese used a compound called maxingshigan-yinqiaosan (MY) for treatment of flu symptoms during the 2009 H1N1 epidemic. MY is a concoction of 12 different herbs, including toasted Herba ephedra, as well as qinghao, gypsum fibrosum, and rhizoma.
  • Vitamin E and Prostate Cancer

    The SELECT Trial investigators report on nearly 10 years of follow-up of participants in a study of selenium and vitamin E and the risk of prostate cancer. A small but statistically significant increased risk of prostate cancer appears to be associated with taking vitamin E supplements. These results are in disagreement with others in the literature, and the authors present no plausible biological explanation for them. Nonetheless, the balance of evidence does not appear to support any recommendation that physicians advise their middle-aged and elderly patients to begin vitamin E supplementation for prostate cancer prevention.
