How can one reduce the risk of knee #osteoarthritis?

1. Knee osteoarthritis (OA) causes knee pain. It limits mobility, hampers physical activity and contributes to sedentary lifestyle, which in turn, increases the risk of obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart attack and stroke.
2. Who are at risk of developing knee OA?
*Non-modifiable risk factors:
Female gender and older age
*#obesity: Increases the risk of knee OA three-times. It also accelerates the progression of disease.
#MedTwitter #orthotwitter #orthopedics
3. Knee injury: Traumatic joint injury is a major risk factor for osteoarthritis, particularly at the #knee (i.e. meniscal damage, anterior cruciate ligament rupture, or direct articular cartilage injury). Ref: doi.org/10.1097%2FBOR.…

For fellow drinkers of #coldbrew #coffee: here are 2 v important charts from a food science journal showing how efficiently #caffeine is extracted. As I learned early on, it's deceptively easy to consume an unpleasant amount of #caffeine using this brewing method.
1. Caffeine concentration begins approaching steady state after about 400 minutes (6 2/3 hours). If you think that a 7 hour counter steep will avoid most of the caffeine ... this is wrong. You've extracted almost all of it at this point.
2. While cold water extracts caffeine less efficiently than hot brew methods, this is more than compensated for in cold brew by the much longer time the grinds are in contact with the water.

This Mendelian randomization study finds coffee consumption to be causally associated with risk of oesophageal cancer, with some evidence that this is related to a temperature effect.
- Augmented risk of oesophageal cancer was the main determinant of the increased digestive system cancers with coffee drinking reported in the present study.
- Interestingly, thermal injury to the oesophagus may also be an important oncogenesis driving factor.

Does coffee cause dehydration?

A thread 🧵👇

#caffeine #coffee #hydration
It is often suggested that coffee causes dehydration. This is because coffee contains caffeine, which has a dehydrating effect. However, coffee also contains fluid which has a hydrating effect. Therefore, it can be questioned if coffee intake really causes dehydration.

2/
This study investigated the effect of coffee intake on hydration levels in habitual coffee consumers (3-6 cups a day). Each subject participated in two 3-day experiment periods: one coffee period and one water period.

A function is like a coffee machine

1️⃣
It needs inputs to work (arguments):
— water
— electricity
— ground coffee beans (or pods if so inclined)

You can choose to put different blends of coffee into your machine (choice of what argument to pass to function)

2/
2️⃣
You press the "On" button—this is equivalent to calling the function.

You can almost see the similarity between the typical "On" button and the parentheses ( ) used to call a function in Python!

In this one, coffee was inversely associated with chronic kideny disease in a dose-dependent manner, particularly in females with the effect being stronger in those with higher SHBG and lower testosterone concentrations.
- Among more than 350,000 participants in the UK Biobank, coffee consumption reduced the risk of CKD regardless of genetic risk.
- The effect was sex-specific, and was modified by testosterone and SHBG.

According to common folklore, India’s tryst with coffee began in the early 17th century, when Baba Budan, a Muslim saint from Chikmagalur, smuggled in seven coffee beans from present-day Yemen while returning from Hajj.
(2/4)
The use of the word ‘smuggled’ is intentional as in those days, it was considered illegal to transport green coffee beans out of the Arabian Peninsula. This was to ensure that the region continued to have a monopoly on its trade.
(3/4)
Baba Budan managed to bring it to Chikmagalur in India and began growing the crop. Firstpost writes, “Qahwakhanas (coffee houses) were soon established, and many upper-class Indians took to the drink.

1. A few thoughts on the #Coffee debate with regard to what comes next ( a short thread). Government incentives such as tax relief, land etc are essentially equivalent to commercial and monetary value that the state "invests" in the given project
2. In short, incentives are a proprietary tool by the government to give up expected revenue, say from tax or other sources, in order to advance some greater public purpose. In the case of the Vinci deal, the stated purpose is value addition to coffee
3. The decision to extend equity ( through incentives etc) to a project is not only about strategic value of the project. Any public investment must pass a commercial, strategic and political test. Much of the defence of Vinci deal has been only that it is legal.

Does caffeine improve exercise performance for everyone?

A thread 🧵👇

#caffeine #coffee #performance Image
Caffeine has shown to improve exercise performance. Therefore, caffeine is a popular supplement among athletes.

2/x Image
There appears to be much variation in the individual response to caffeine. This may be explained by variation in the CYP1A2 gene, which determines whether caffeine is metabolized fast or slow. Therefore, the effects of caffeine may depend on the activity of this gene.

This one suggests that conventional daily caffeine intake does not provide sufficient time for the elimination of caffeine and paraxanthine. Image
- Worse still, even though the salivary caffeine nearly reaches a clear state, the caffeine-associated brain responses seem to require a longer time to be fully restored.
"The concurrence of a reduced hippocampal GM intensity and an incomplete caffeine elimination, together with a GM recovery after being deprived of caffeine, underscore the importance of a sufficient cessation period...

🧵 A landmark civil court case in Chinese A share securities fraud just had a significant verdict ($385 million). The significance is not just in dollars.

Kangmei Pharm. (600518) accounting fraud 2016-1018, officially uncovered in 2019, unofficially by social media 2018. /1
It's first time, China Securities Investor Services Center (ISC) filed as plaintiff in representative of investors.

ISC, a non-profit financial institution and is under the direct administration of the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC).

Notice the murky status of non-profits. Its website ends with .com.cn, which for English readers may thought as for-profit companies.

China skeptics are right to be skeptical as ISC directly administered by CSRC (China's SEC), a govt entity.
