1. The effects of fatal vision goggles on drinking and driving intentions in college students.
Match Strength: 6.948
The present study was designed to examine the effectiveness of Fatal Vision Goggles in reducing intentions to drink and drive. Participants performed a field sobriety task and drove in a traffic simulator while wearing the goggles. A regression analysis was performed in order to predict changes in intentions to drink and drive, using typical drinking patterns, perceived likelihood of getting into a collision when drinking and driving, self efficacy, and driving independence as predictor variables. Results showed that drinking and driving intentions were reduced following the use of Fatal ... Read More »

2. Smoking-associated factors in myocardial infarction and unstable angina: Do gender differences exist?
Match Strength: 4.641
The aim of this study was to investigate demographic and psychological characteristics associated with smoking in patients with acute coronary syndrome (myocardial infarction or unstable angina). Interviews were conducted with 348 consecutive hospitalized patients with acute coronary syndrome and included questions about demographic characteristics, coffee consumption, heart disease risk perception, economic status, alcohol consumption, depression, anxiety, and stress. Female group multivariate analysis showed that smoking in females was significantly and negatively associated with age, heart ... Read More »

3. Consumption of soft drinks and hyperactivity, mental distress, and conduct problems among adolescents in Oslo, Norway.
Match Strength: 4.585
OBJECTIVES: We examined whether high levels of consumption of sugar-containing soft drinks were associated with mental distress, hyperactivity, and conduct problems among adolescents. METHODS: A cross-sectional population-based survey was conducted with 10th-grade students in Oslo, Norway (n = 5498). We used the Hopkins Symptom Checklist and the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire to assess mental health outcomes. RESULTS: There was a J-shaped dose-response relationship between soft drink consumption and mental distress, conduct problems, and total mental health difficulties score; that ... Read More »

4. Consequences of bottle-feeding to the oral facial development of initially breastfed children.
Match Strength: 3.585
OBJECTIVE: To identify and assess the possible consequences of bottle-feeding on the oral facial development of children who were breastfed up to at least six months of age. METHOD: Two hundred and two children (4 years of age) enrolled in an early health attention program participated in the study. The sample was divided into two groups: G1 (children who used only a cup to drink) and G2 (those who used a bottle). RESULTS: Lip closure was observed in 82% of the children in G1 and in 65% of those in G2 (p = 0.0065). The tongue coming to rest in the maxillary arch was found in 73% of the ... Read More »

5. Acetaminophen self-administered in the drinking water increases the pain threshold of rats (Rattus norvegicus).
Match Strength: 3.342
Previous studies have suggested that the addition of flavored acetaminophen suspension (for example, Children's Tylenol) in the drinking water of rats may not be effective in producing postoperative analgesia because of low levels of consumption. However, these investigations neither measured analgesia nor compared the consumption by rats that had undergone surgery with that by unmanipulated rats. The present study reports that although unmanipulated rats naive to the taste of flavored acetaminophen do indeed drink significantly less of this liquid than tap water, they drank sufficient amounts ...

6. Hypoxemia in children with pneumonia and its clinical predictors.
Match Strength: 3.176
OBJECTIVES: To assess the prevalence of hypoxemia in children, 2 months to 5 years of age, with pneumonia and to identify its clinical predictors. METHODS: Children between 2-60 months of age presenting with a complaint of cough or difficulty breathing were assessed. Hypoxemia was defined as an arterial oxygen saturation of < 90% recorded by a portable pulse oximeter. Patients were categorized into groups: cough and cold, pneumonia, severe pneumonia and very severe pneumonia. RESULTS: The prevalence of hypoxemia (SpO2 of < 90%) in 150 children with pneumonia was 38.7%. Of them 100% of ... Read More »

7. A prospective analysis of alcohol consumption and onset of perimenopause.
Match Strength: 2.824
OBJECTIVES: We prospectively assessed the association between alcohol consumption and onset of perimenopause in women of late reproductive age using data from the Harvard Study of Moods and Cycles. Specific types of alcoholic beverages - red wine, white wine, beer, and liquor - were evaluated. METHODS: Among 502 women aged 36-45 years residing in seven Boston communities, we assessed self-reported perimenopausal symptoms over a 5-year period. The onset of perimenopause was defined using changes in menstrual characteristics. We administered a semiquantitative food frequency questionnaire at ... Read More »

8. Non-invasive therapy to reduce the body burden of aluminium in Alzheimer's disease.
Match Strength: 2.661
There are unexplained links between human exposure to aluminium and the incidence, progression and aetiology of Alzheimer's disease. The null hypothesis which underlies any link is that there would be no Alzheimer's disease in the effective absence of a body burden of aluminium. To test this the latter would have to be reduced to and retained at a level that was commensurate with an Alzheimer's disease-free population. In the absence of recent human interference in the biogeochemical cycle of aluminium the reaction of silicic acid with aluminium has acted as a geochemical control of the ... Read More »

9. Relationship of binge drinking and other health-compromising behaviors among urban adolescents in China.
Match Strength: 2.638
PURPOSE: To describe frequency and patterns of alcohol use and explore the association between binge drinking and other health-compromising behaviors among adolescents in urban China. METHODS: Data on alcohol use and other behavioral risk factors were obtained from the 2004 China Adolescent Behavioral Risk Factor Survey conducted in 18 provincial capitals. Chi-square test was used to estimate the prevalence of alcohol use and compare differences in drinking frequency by gender, school type, and grade. Logistic regression was used to estimate the association between binge drinking and other ... Read More »

10. The role of the glucocorticoid receptor in mineralocorticoid/salt-mediated cardiac fibrosis.
Match Strength: 2.620
The pathophysiological consequences of excess mineralocorticoid for salt status include hypertension, vascular inflammation, and cardiac fibrosis. Mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) blockade can both prevent and reverse established inflammation and fibrosis due to exogenous mineralocorticoids or endogenous glucocorticoid activation of the MR. Glucocorticoids also exert potent antiinflammatory effects via glucocorticoid receptors (GR) in the vascular wall. We propose that GR signaling may ameliorate mineralocorticoid/salt-induced vascular inflammation and fibrosis in the mineralocorticoid/salt ... Read More »
