Associate Professor Bamini Gopinath, PhD, from the Institute's Centre for Vision Research compiled data from the Blue Mountains Eye Study, a benchmark population-based study that examined a group of more than 1,600 adults, ages 50 years and older, for systemic diseases and long-term sensory loss risk factors.

Insights on Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress is a biological process that is emerging as a major factor in both diseases and aging itself.  Environmental influences such air pollution, smoking, and UV radiation can release free radicals into the body, submitting it to oxidative stress that can in-turn weaken the immune system. Mai Matsushita, from ETH Zurich's Institute of Molecular Health Sciences (Switzerland), and colleagues have revealed that the immune response fails to work if significant oxidative stress is damaging T-cell immune cells.

Vitamin D3 supplementation increases telomerase activity in type 2 diabetics

Findings from a study reported at the Experimental Biology 2016 meeting held in San Diego reveal an association between daily vitamin D supplementation and improved telomerase activity in Hispanic type 2 diabetics with vitamin D insufficiency. Telomerase is an enzyme involved in the maintenance of telomeres: DNA sequences that cap and protect the ends of chromosomes. Low telomerase activity is linked with shorter telomeres, which are associated with type 2 diabetes and premature mortality. The findings were published in a supplement to the April 2016 issue of The FASEB Journal.

Medical errors may be third leading cause of death in the U.S.

(CNN)You've heard those hospital horror stories where the surgeon removes the wrong body part or operates on the wrong patient or accidentally leaves medical equipment in the person they were operating on.

Even scarier, perhaps, is a new study in the latest edition of BMJ suggesting most medical errors go unobserved, at least in the official record.
In fact, the study, from doctors at Johns Hopkins, suggests medical errors may kill more people than lower respiratory diseases like emphysema and bronchitis do. That would make these medical mistakes the third leading cause of death in the United States. That would place medical errors right behind heart disease and cancer.
