Once amyloid starts to affect brain cells, it is thought to trigger a cascade of events, much like starting a row of falling dominoes. The brain’s immune cells become overactive and start to cause more harm than good. Blood flow can also be affected.
Your brain is the most complex thing in the universe. Billions of cells working together to control your emotions, memories, movement and speech. we can take steps to keep our brains healthy and reduce our risk of developing dementia later in life
A CT scan involves combining a series of X-rays taken from different angles of the head to produce images of a person’s brain to rule out conditions that cause similar symptoms to dementia and show structure changes that occur in diseases like Alzheimer’s

Klar, die Kohleverstromung bis 2038 in 🇩🇪 ist nicht kompatibel mit dem Pariser Klimaabkommen. Und die #SDGs? Auch die Einhaltung der #Agenda2030 hat D 2015 unterzeichnet. Wir haben uns die #SDGs in Bezug auf #Braunkohle angesehen. Los gehts mit #SDG3 Gesundheit. Ein🧵
Kohlekraftwerke gehören sowohl in 🇩🇪 als auch in Europa zu den verheerendsten Quellen von giftigen & gesundheitsschädigenden Luftschadstoffen. Schwefeldioxid (SO2), Stickoxide (NOx), Ruß & Staubemissionen aus Kohle sind die größten industriellen Ursachen von Feinstaub und Smog!
Dieser dringt tief in die Lungen ein und wird ebenfalls vom Blutkreislauf aufgenommen. Nicht nur Feinstaub - auch zehntausende Kilogramm toxischer und krebserregender Metalle wie Quecksilber, Blei, Arsen und Cadmium gelangen aus dem Schlot der Kohlekraftwerke in unsere Körper.

Thread on Teladoc Health and a case for the addition of Genomic based healthcare to its specialities.

$TDOC, the first and only comprehensive virtual care system, offering more than 450 specialities/subspecialties
including personalised healthcare, hypertension, diabetes, mental health and obesity. Teladoc Health services are presently available in 175 countries and still expanding...
In our opinion, Livongo acquisition (with its specialities, AI and data capabilities) establishes Teladoc as a true telehealth giant and expands its competitive advantage over companies like $AMWL and $OTRK.

The pain inflicted by the pandemic has devastating effects on sustainable development, the concept that reflects the complexity of our world by combining and juxtaposing the socio, economic and environmental aspects of human activity #SDGs
The direct effects of #COVID19 on sustainable development come from the adverse health outcomes of the virus, and the extent to which its rate of mortality and morbidity impacts on the size and health of the labour force and its productivity (#SDG3) @WHO @ilo @UNDP @UN_Women
This in turn affects, for example, the fight against poverty (#SDG1), the number of people at risk of famine (#SDG2), education outcomes (#SDG4), economic growth and employment (#SDG8), and more. @UNDP @SUN_Movement @WHO @FAO @UNICEF @ITU @UNOCHA

C/S means many things to many people.

Over the years, I have lost count of different interpretations

I've listed a few in the questions below, tweet an answer
@healthertainer @ronikpe
#cesarean #COVIDー19
C-section- a surgical procedure through the anterior abdomen and uterus to deliver the baby, placenta & its membrane.

Can be elective; planned by you and your doctor or emergency ; as an urgent intervention to avoid or treat complications.
Situations where you shouldn't reject C/S
1. Placenta previa- the placenta won't let baby pass through for vaginal delivery

2. Twins; 1st twin is coming with buttock

3. You have had 2 or more C/S before.

4. If you have had fibroid/ any surgery on your uterus before.
