Health Alert: Legalization of Pot Linked to Increase in Car Crash Injuries and Deaths. According to a recent
study, states that have legalized recreational marijuana have seen an increase in the rates for car crashes with injuries
(6%) and fatal crashes (4%) that has not been observed in states that did not legalize the drug. Lead researcher Dr.
Charles Farmer adds, “It’s becoming more and more clear that the legalization of marijuana doesn’t come without
cost. But marijuana legalization is still a novelty, and there’s hope that these early trends can be turned around.”

Diet: Keto and Mediterranean Diets Good for Glucose Control. According to a recent study, both the ketogenic
and Mediterranean diet are effective for improving glucose control and improving high-density lipoprotein (the good
cholesterol) levels; however, participants found that the Mediterranean eating pattern was easier to sustain on a longterm basis. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, May 2022
Exercise: Exercise May Improve Thinking Speed. A study that included 758 participants found that women with
higher cardiorespiratory fitness performed better on thinking speed assessments than their sedentary peers. However,
no such observation was noted in men. Neurology, July 2022
Chiropractic: Early Chiropractic Care Reduces Opioid Use for Patients with Low Back Pain. A review of
insurance claims for around 41,000 adults with back pain revealed that those who sought chiropractic care initially
were 12% less likely to receive a subsequent opioid prescription and 46% less likely to use opioids in the long term.
Because only 6% of the patients in this study sought chiropractic care first, the findings suggest that encouraging
patients to consult with a chiropractor for new-onset back pain could significantly reduce long-term opioid use and
misuse. Journal of Chiropractic Medicine, June 2022
Mental Attitude: Childhood Loneliness May Lead to Drinking Problems in Adulthood. Interviews with more
than 300 college students found that those who experienced loneliness before age twelve were more likely to report

Wellness/Prevention: Special Brain Scans May Aid in Early Parkinson’s Disease. With the aid of a new
technology called quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (qMRI), researchers are now able to detect changes to a
part of the brain called the striatum, which helps the body move voluntarily and is known to deteriorate with
Parkinson’s disease. When qMRI becomes clinically available, it will help doctors detect Parkinson’s in its earliest
stages. Science Advances, July 2022

inactivity, self-reported exhaustion, and unintentional weight loss that is associated with an increased risk for poor
health outcomes. Using data from the Framingham Heart Study Offspring study, researchers have observed an
association between a pro-inflammatory diet—an eating pattern characterized by a high intake of sugar,
polysaturated vegetable oils, trans fats, dairy products, feed lot-raised meat, red meat, processed meat, alcohol,
refined grains, and artificial food additives—and an elevated risk for frailty.

cardiovascular function than their sedentary peers. Sleep & Breathing, August 2022
Chiropractic: Manual Therapies and Tinnitus. Following a study that showed that manual therapies are an
effective intervention for patients with suspected cervicogenic somatosensory tinnitus, researchers conclude that in
the absence of ENT (ear, nose, and throat) pathologies, patients seeking care for ringing in the ears should be
examined for musculoskeletal dysfunction in the head and neck. Doctors of chiropractic commonly use manual
therapies to manage patients with musculoskeletal disorders. HNO, August 2022

Health Alert: The Cost of Forever Chemicals… Perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are
chemicals used to imbue heat-, oil-, stain-, grease-, and water-resistant properties to products such as food
containers, clothes, and furniture and have been linked to several poor health outcomes. Because these chemicals
linger in the body, they’re known as forever chemicals. According to a recent study, these chemicals may cost the
United States health care system an estimated $63 billion dollars a year in medical costs and productivity losses due
to the top conditions linked to PFAS exposure, including hypothyroidism and childhood obesity. Senior author Dr.
Leonardo Trasande writes, “Our results strongly support the recent decision by the Environmental Protection
Agency to lower the safe allowable level of these substances in water… Based on our estimates, the cost of
eradicating contamination and replacing this class of chemical with safer alternatives is ultimately justified when
considering the tremendous economic and medical risks of allowing them to persist in the environment.”

Exercise: Walking Suggestion for PAD Patients. New research suggests that for patients with peripheral artery
disease (PAD), walking at a pace that induces leg discomfort results in better long-term walking performance than
strolling at a comfortable pace or not walking at all. Journal of the American Heart Association, July 2022
Chiropractic: Manual Therapy Combo Benefits Cervicogenic Dizziness Patients. For individuals with dizziness
caused by dysfunction in the cervical spine, researchers report that the combination of functional massage and
manipulative therapy—treatments provided in a chiropractic setting—is an effective intervention for improving
mechanosensitivity of the cervical muscles, neck-related disability, and dizziness symptoms. Life (Basel), July 2022

Exercise: Physical Activity Can Help an Aging Brain. Among a group of 300 sedentary older adults with mildcognitive impairment, those who participated in either aerobic exercise or a stretching and balance intervention did
not experience worsening performance on cognitive assessments a year later, nor did brain scans show any sign of
additional brain shrinkage. On the other hand, subjects who did not exercise experienced significant cognitive
decline during the course of the study. Associated Press, July 2022
Chiropractic: Manual Therapies Help Patients with Hip or Knee Osteoarthritis. For patients with osteoarthritis
of the hip or knee, an analysis of data from 19 clinical trials found that the addition of manual therapy to exercise
therapy may lead to better outcomes with respect to pain, function, and stiffness than exercise alone. Doctors of
chiropractic often adopt a multimodal approach that includes exercise and manual therapies in the management of
patients with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee. Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy, July 2022
Mental Attitude: The Brain Functions Differently with ADHD. Functional MRI scans of 360 children and teens

networks, including those involved with attention, executive function, and processing visual and sensory
information. Molecular Psychiatry, July 2022
Wellness/Prevention: Make Health a Family Affair. Because eating and exercising together during the week can
help family members get and stay healthy, the American Heart Association recommends the following: keep a
family schedule, and find 30-minute periods during the week that the entire family can exercise; choose a time that
the entire family can decide on the upcoming week’s menu; find ways to manage stress as a family; and make sure
everyone in the family does their part to help out around the house. American Heart Association, July 2022

Health Alert: Death Rate from Alcoholic Liver Cirrhosis Has Quadrupled in the Last 20 years. According
to a recent study, deaths from alcoholic cirrhosis in the United States increased 400% between 1999 and 2019,
from 4,000 to 24,000 per year. Lead researcher Dr. Charles Hennekens notes, “My hypothesis is that the reason
we’re seeing more of liver disease earlier is not just that people are drinking more, but that they’re eating more
and exercising less, so the damage to the liver is accelerating.” American Journal of Medicine, June 2022
Diet: Omega-3 Fatty Acids Benefit the Heart. Using data from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis,
researchers estimate that a high intake of omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease by

Exercise: Boxing May Be a Good Exercise to Curb Parkinson’s Symptoms. For patients with Parkinson’s
disease, a recent study found that participating in a three-month boxing program may ease both motor and nonmotor Parkinson’s symptoms. Study co-author Dr. Roshni Patel adds, “There’s a lot of growing evidence about
the benefits of exercise in Parkinson’s… This is another study that highlights the importance of exercise in the
treatment of Parkinson’s disease. It should be a part of our treatment, just like medicines are.”
American Academy of Neurology, April 2022
Chiropractic: Try Conservative Care Before Surgery for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. Lumbar spinal stenosis
(LSS) is a debilitating condition associated with the degeneration of the spine, which can have a wide range of
symptoms including back pain, leg pain, numbness and tingling in the legs and impaired physical function. A
recent study found that for patients with mild-to-moderate LSS, conservative treatment that includes manual
therapies, supervised exercises, and aerobic training may provide similar long-term benefits with respect to pain
and disability as decompression surgery with or without spinal fusion. Doctors of chiropractic often employ
such an approach in the management of LSS. BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, July 2022

Health Alert: Many THC-Free CBD Products Contain THC. Tetrahydrocannobinol (THC) is a chemical in
marijuana that causes intoxication. An analysis of 80 different readily available THC-free cannabidiol (CBD)
products found that about 60% of these products did contain THC. The researchers note that most contained
only trace amounts of THC, but these amounts can accumulate in the body and be detected by a drug test. The
Partnership to End Addiction in New York City adds, “Consumers deserve accurate marketing claims and if
they choose to buy CBD, to know exactly what’s in the product… It’s been like the Wild West for quite some
time as CBD products proliferate, advertised for numerous maladies without research to substantiate it and
without oversight on quality control.” Drug and Alcohol Dependence, June 2022
Diet: Use Salt Less? Using data from the UK Biobank study, researchers report that individuals who nearly
always add salt to their food may live two fewer years than those who rarely/never add salt to their meals. The
