Cancer screening evaluation

Early detection may make cancer treatments easier and more successful. The National Institutes of Health has launched the Cancer Screening Research Network, a new clinical trials network to evaluate emerging methods for screening for cancer. “Emerging technologies such as multi-cancer detection tests could transform cancer screening and help to extend the lives of many more people,” said the director of the National Cancer Institute.

As trendy as pickleball

Electric bicycle usage has taken off among consumers who want to save on gas and use an eco-friendly form of transportation. So have e-bike related injuries, skyrocketing more than 3,000% from 2017 to 2022, according to this new research letter in JAMA Surgery. A helpful safety tip: Wear a helmet. Just 44% of injured e-bike riders wore theirs.

Ginseng for better health

Exercise generally has a positive effect on health, but fatigue from working out can increase chances of injuries. If you or your patients are feeling sore after a workout, the herb ginseng may help. While study pools are relatively small, researchers found “the result of the effects of ginseng consumption are largely beneficial for a reduced appearance of fatigue and, consequently, better muscle recovery,” according to this study and accompanying news release.
