Gender affirming surgeries have tripled

Gender affirming surgery numbers have tripled from 2016 to 2019, according to a new study. Most patients in the study sought procedures from ages 19 to 34 years old. The most common types of procedures were chest augmentations.

COVID evolving 3 times faster in deer

COVID-19 is rapidly evolving in wild, Ohio deer according to a recent study. Researchers don’t yet understand how the transmission is happening but predict that variants will continue to change.

Calorie deficit may benefit gut

Intermittent fasting and calorie deficits support microbiome diversity in the gut. “The microbiome is working full-time,” Rudolph Bedford, MD said. “So, when you fast or eat less, you’re resting it, allowing it to repopulate, just like sleep.”Experts say that each diet needs to first be assessed with a health care practitioner because dietary needs can vary.
