“President Carter is resting comfortably and his wife, Rosalynn, is with him,” according to the statement. The procedure will take place Tuesday morning at the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
CBS News medical contributor Dr. David Agus said that the procedure is normally quick. “Basically, they’re just drilling a small hole in the brain and draining the fluid that is causing the pressure,” Agus told CBSN. “So the procedure itself — you could be in the operating room, say, an hour.”
Mr. Carter, who is 95, has had a number of health scares in recent years. In 2015, he announced he had beenthat had spread to his liver and brain. He stepped back from responsibility at The Carter Center, but he continued classes in his hometown of Plains, Georgia. It’s a tradition he started in his teens that has gained a wide following.
But just six months later, he was treated with a new immunotherapy drug and , announcing an MRI showed no signs of cancer and he .
In May 2019, he suffered another health setback when he fell and hospitalized for a fractured pelvis.. Mr. Carter suffered two more falls in October 2019, and was
Carter’s first October fall left him with a black eye and 14 stitches — but he nevertheless attended the opening ceremony for a Habitat for Humanity build in Nashville along with Rosalynn, who is 92. Less than two weeks after his second fall, he said he planned toSunday school.
In the Sunday school service that followed,he’s “at ease with death.”
After learning about his cancer in 2015, he said he “assumed, naturally, that I was going to die very quickly.”
“I, obviously, prayed about it. I didn’t ask God to let me live, but I just asked God to give me a proper attitude toward death. And I found that I was absolutely and completely at ease with death. It didn’t really matter to me whether I died or lived,” Mr. Carter said. “I have, since that time, been absolutely confident that my Christian faith includes complete confidence in life after death. So, I’m going to live again after I die — Don’t know what form I’ll take, or anything.”
This spring, Mr. Carter surpassed George H.W. Bush as the longest-lived U.S. president in history. The Carters recently became the longest married presidential couple, surpassing George and Barbara Bush, with more than 73 years of marriage.
“While each gram of regular tobacco contains 16 milligrams of nicotine, the newly edited version contains only 0.04 percent,” said the study’s lead author Felix Stehle.
“No one in the world has ever managed to reduce nicotine to this level,” he added.
The researchers published their study in the Plant Biotechnology journal.
The tobacco plant is not used to make cigarettes only, but also as a living sample in main research fields.
The researchers explained they used gene cutting to alter the genetic characteristics of this plant. They omitted six genes that play a major role in nicotine production. Although the plant regrouped these genes, it did so in a wrong way, which stopped the production of nicotine. The researchers assured that this process can be used with almost all types of tobacco.
Nicotine is the substance that leads to smoking addiction, in addition to the 4800 substances found in cigarettes, of which 70 substances cause cancer, or suspected to develop cancer.
(CNN)Valerie Harper, who achieved fame as Rhoda on the classic sitcom “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and continued as the character in a popular spin-off series, has died after a long battle with cancer, her daughter Cristina Cacciotti and family friend Deanna Buskey confirmed to CNN.
In astrology, the 12 Zodiac signs are a loose guide to personality traits, which are a reflection of the behavior, attitude, passion, strengths, and weaknesses of people under each classification. They can be used for self-improvement, growth, entertainment, and fun!
Individuals are associated with a symbol—or a sign—depending on the date and month on which they were born. The 12 signs are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.
These signs fall into elemental classifications of water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces); air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius); fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius); and earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn). These four elements have perceived underpinnings in their interaction with the 12 Zodiac signs.
People who fall under this horoscope are those born between March 20 and April 20, and the representative symbol is the ram. This Zodiac sign represents people who are bold, courageous, ambitious, inquisitive, independent, natural leaders, and individuals who have a deep respect for justice. The negative characteristics of this group include aggression, selfishness, inconsistency, bad temperament, and pushy characteristics.
Taureans are born between April 20 and May 20, under the bull. The characteristics are dedication, trustworthiness, and dependency compared to the negative traits like resistance to change and stubbornness. The bull signifies persistence and high energy, which propagates an endurance that extends beyond high patience levels.
This zodiac class depicts twins as the symbol and consists of people born between May 21 and June 20. These individuals are agile, open to change, intelligent, have excellent communication skills, are insightful, and possess a readiness to make conversation. Within this category, their behaviors are inconsistent, they like to over-stress or amplify situations and information, and they are deceptive, scheming, dramatic, and extremely talkative.
Birthdays of people under Cancer run from June 21 to July 20, and the symbol is the crab. The traits of members include compassion, healing, cultivating, reassuring, understanding, and incredibly loving. However, the same people display clingy behavior, passive aggression, moodiness, and indirect expressions, which hinder effective interaction.
The representation sign is the lion, and the birth dates run from July 21 to August 20. Their association with the sun means that Leos introduce warmth to an interaction or bring a relationship to life. Hence, this group values relationships, and their charisma can charm many people into becoming their friends. Leos are also fearless, protective, fun, exhibit leadership, and are very generous, which parallels their inclination to dictatorship, stubbornness, and controlling and bragging behavior.
The virgin is the zodiac symbol that describes people born between August 21 and September 20. People in this category come off as organized, investigative, rational, meek, modest, and responsible. They have an excellent memory and research skills, which makes it possible to be rational and analytical. This makes them an excellent addition to a discussion group. However, they can prove to be annoying due to their obsessive behavior, desire to make everything perfect, criticalness, and an extreme keenness to detail.
Represented by the scales, Libras have their birthdays between September 20 and October 20. Members of this group have dignity, are easygoing, subtle, and charming despite their indecisive traits and hypocritical and gullible attitudes.
Depicted by the scorpion, this zodiac sign describes people born between October 21 and November 20. Beyond the passionate, sensitive, expressive, and sacrificial characteristics, this group also displays envious, distrustful, malicious, and possessive behavior.
The centaur (or an archer) is the representative symbol for Sagittarius, for people born between November 21 and December 21. This is a hopeful group due to their open-mindedness, and are bubbly, lucky, possess high moral standards, and are versatile. Negative aspects include sluggishness and being fidgety, irresponsible, and greedy.
The symbol for Capricorn is the goat. This group is talented and values stability, strategy, tolerance, meticulousness, and responsibility irrespective of their negativity, rigidity, ruthlessness, and melancholic and cynical traits. Capricorns are born between December 21 and January 20.
The Aquarius sign is also known as the Water Bearer, based on the symbol, and is comprised of individuals born between January 21 and February 20. The group reflects inherent characteristics such as intellectual or smart, generous, friendly, creative, and humane. The negative traits associated with this sign are irresponsible, emotionally distant, absent-minded, and impersonal.
This Zodiac sign is the fish and signifies the temperament and attitudes of people born between February 21 and March 20. Pisces is romantic, thoughtful, sensitive, inventive, and empathetic, which complements the problematic elements of being unrealistic, docile, self-pitying, and needy.
Scientists say they have discovered why some vegetables – including cabbage, broccoli and kale – can reduce the risk of bowel cancers.
That cruciferous veg is good for the gut has never been in doubt but a detailed explanation has been elusive.
The team at the Francis Crick Institute found anti-cancer chemicals were produced as the vegetables were digested.
Cancer Research UK said there were plenty of reasons to eat more veg.
The work focused on how vegetables alter the lining of the intestines, by studying mice and miniature bowels growing in the lab.
Like the skin, the surface of the bowels is constantly being regenerated in a process that takes four to five days.
But this constant renewal needs to be tightly controlled, otherwise it could lead to cancer or gut inflammation.
And the work, published in the journal Immunity, showed chemicals in cruciferous vegetables were vital.
The researchers investigated a chemical called indole-3-carbinol, which is produced by chewing such vegetables.
“Make sure they’re not overcooked, no soggy broccoli,” said researcher Dr Gitta Stockinger.
The chemical is modified by stomach acid as it continues its journey through the digestive system.
In the lower bowel, it can change the behaviour of stem cells, which regenerate the bowel lining, and of immune cells that control inflammation.
The study showed diets high in indole-3-carbinol protected the mice from cancer, even those whose genes put them at very high risk of the disease.
Without the protective diet, the gut cells divided uncontrollably.
Dr Stockinger added: “Even when the mice started developing tumours and we switched them to the appropriate diet, it halted tumour progression.”
Signs of bowel cancer include persistent:
Dr Stockinger said the findings were a “cause for optimism”.
She has reduced the amount of meat she eats and now consumes a lot more vegetables.
She told the BBC: “A lot of dietary advice we’re getting changes periodically – it is very confusing and not clear cut what the causes and consequences are.
“Just telling me it’s good for me without a reason will not make me eat it.
“With this study, we have the molecular mechanisms about how this system works.”
Prof Tim Key, from Cancer Research UK, said: “This study in mice suggests that it’s not just the fibre contained in vegetables like broccoli and cabbage that help reduce the risk of bowel cancer, but also molecules found in these vegetables too.
“Further studies will help find out whether the molecules in these vegetables have the same effect in people, but in the meantime there are already plenty of good reasons to eat more vegetables.”
