Stanford Medicine experts advise school districts on COVID-19 tests | News Center

Kong was motivated to reach out to schools when she saw how parents of school-age kids were struggling with campus closures and a lack of child care.

“We heard a lot of the talk during back-to-school planning about how you set up classrooms, handwashing, masking,” she said. “But we didn’t hear about testing. For schools, that’s not what they normally do; they didn’t know how to think about it. So we put it out there that we have capacity, and we’re happy to work with schools and districts on this.”

Mediterranean Diet Might Lower Your Odds for Parkinson’s | Health News

By Amy Norton
HealthDay Reporter


THURSDAY, Aug. 20, 2020 (HealthDay News) — People who eat healthfully may be less likely to develop a constellation of symptoms that can precede Parkinson’s disease, a large new study suggests.

Researchers found that people who closely adhered to a Mediterranean-style diet were about one-third less likely to develop at least three “prodromal” features suggestive of Parkinson’s disease, compared to those who stuck with meat and potatoes.

Prodromal refers to certain symptoms that can arise years before the more obvious movement problems that mark Parkinson’s. They include constipation, depression, body pain, diminished sense of smell, daytime drowsiness, difficulty seeing colors and a tendency to “act out” dreams.

Huntington-Whiteley says she follows naturopathic doctor Nigma Talib’s diet plan, which eliminates dairy, gluten, sugar, and alcohol. “It’s been really tough,” she”>tells E!. However, she says, it’s also been “transformative” for her. “I can feel it in my skin, I can feel it in my body, I feel lean right now, and I feel strong and I feel energized,” she says.
