Some drugs, supplements taken together can pose health risk

Health
Sept. 25 (UPI) -- People who use certain over-the-counter herbal medicines and dietary supplements concurrently with prescription drugs could open themselves up to serious health risks, especially among older adults, according to a study. Researchers in Britain found some drugs' effectiveness was reduced and that new medical problems could be caused with some combinations in a study published Monday in the British Journal of General Practice. They report that blood pressure treatments, statins and aspirin are affected, and there is increased blood glucose concentration and risk of bleeding. They also found the body's reduced ability to absorb prescription drugs associated with aging. Researchers found 32.6 percent of the participants were at risk of potential adverse drug interactions.

Business
Aug. 31 (UPI) -- The Nimitz-class USS Harry S. Truman and USS Abraham Lincoln began dual-carrier qualification operations Wednesday in the western Atlantic Ocean, the U.S. Navy announced this week. "By training and operating together, the USS Harry S.

Foods with carbs and fats together make the brain light up more, study finds

Health
On a platter of cheese, pretzels and donuts, most people will probably reach for the donuts, according to a new study. That could be because the brain values foods like donuts, with both fats and carbohydrates, more than foods high in only fats, like the cheese, or only carbs, like the pretzels. People could be wired to want that deadly combo: Fats and carbohydrates together. "We were interested in exploring mechanisms that drive food reinforcement," lead author Dana Small, director of Yale University’s Modern Diet and Physiology Research Center, told ABC News. So how do the digestive and emotional system work for different types of macronutrients, like carbs and fats? And how do "man-made," processed foods that contain both fats and carbs affect these mechanisms? To find out, ...
The best-performing fund of the first quarter was put together by accident

The best-performing fund of the first quarter was put together by accident

Finance
Christopher Devlin, founder and chief investment officer of Selective Wealth Management, put together the best-performing fund of the first quarter. However, he did not mean it for the fund to be so tech-heavy."That was not part of the overall plan," said Devlin, who created the fund in January of last year. "As we analyze the investing landscape, we try to look for businesses that can grow earnings over the next five-to-10 years. We found a lot of those companies were in tech.""We weren't trying to ride the tech wave here," Devlin said.The fund's high exposure to tech paid off, nonetheless. The Selective Opportunity Foundation fund (SLCTX) returned 14.39 percent to investors in the first quarter, the highest among funds tracked by Morningstar. It is made up of 10 stocks, eight of which ar...
