Longevity increased by positive self-perceptions of aging.
TLDR
It was found that older individuals with more positiveSelf-perceptions of aging, measured up to 23 years earlier, lived 7.5 years longer than those with less positive self-perceived aging, after age, gender, socioeconomic status, loneliness, and functional health were included as covariates.
Longitudinal benefit of positive self-perceptions of aging on functional health.
TLDR
This study found that those with more positive self-perceptions of aging in 1975 reported better functional health from 1977 to 1995, when it was controlled for baseline measures of functional health, self-rated health, age, gender, race, and socioeconomic status.
Amelioration of Acute Sequelae of Blast Induced Mild Traumatic Brain Injury by N-Acetyl Cysteine: A Double-Blind, Placebo Controlled Study
TLDR
It is demonstrated that N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), a safe pharmaceutical countermeasure, has beneficial effects on the severity and resolution of sequelae of blast induced mTBI in a combat setting, the first demonstration of an effective short termcountermeasure formTBI.
Longitudinal Study of Serum Lipids and Liver Enzymes in Workers With Occupational Exposure to Ammonium Perfluorooctanoate
TLDR
These medical surveillance data collected on workers for up to 25 years contributes useful information on the effects of ammonium perfluorooctanoate exposure on human liver and lipid chemistry.
Age Stereotypes Held Earlier in Life Predict Cardiovascular Events in Later Life
TLDR
When older individuals apply negative age stereotypes to themselves, they can adversely influence a wide range of outcomes, including a greater cardiovascular response to stress and worse health behaviors, such as higher tobacco use.
Association between body mass index and acute traumatic workplace injury in hourly manufacturing employees.
TLDR
Research findings support an association between body mass index and traumatic workplace injuries among manufacturing employees and workplace safety personnel might consider adding policies or programs that address weight reduction and maintenance as part of ongoing comprehensive workplace safety strategies.
A culture-brain link: Negative age stereotypes predict Alzheimer's disease biomarkers.
TLDR
Those holding more-negative age stereotypes earlier in life had significantly steeper hippocampal-volume loss and significantly greater accumulation of neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques related to the pathology of Alzheimer's disease, adjusting for relevant covariates.
Proximity to Pollution Sources and Risk of Amphibian Limb Malformation
TLDR
Support is provided for the role of chemical toxicants in the development of amphibian limb malformation in wild amphibian populations and the value of an epidemiologic approach to this problem is demonstrated.
Audiogram Notches in Noise-Exposed Workers
TLDR
Notch depth and professional specialty appeared to affect notch judgments, and a notch metric showed excellent agreement with expert notch consensus in each sample.
Effect of daily noise exposure monitoring on annual rates of hearing loss in industrial workers
TLDR
Monitoring daily occupational noise exposure inside hearing protection with ongoing administrative feedback apparently reduces the risk of occupational NIHL in industrial workers.
