Hey everyone,

I just read some fascinating news about how boiling tap water could remove up to 90% of microplastics in it. Researchers in China have found that this simple method can be effective for both hard and soft water, which is great news for those concerned about microplastic contamination. In other news, a new study suggests that changes in spinal fluid biomarkers could help diagnose Alzheimer’s early, potentially leading to earlier intervention and treatment. On the flip side, researchers have also found that cannabis use may increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, so it’s important to be mindful of the potential risks associated with cannabis consumption.

In addition to these findings, there are some interesting articles on Medical News Today about the skin microbiome and its relation to eczema, the impact of high cholesterol on chest pain, and systemic immunomodulatory treatments for eczema. There’s also a new podcast episode exploring the weight loss plateau on Wegovy, which may be of interest to anyone looking into weight management options.

As always, it’s great to stay informed about the latest developments in healthcare and wellness. I hope you find these updates as interesting as I did!

Take care,


Stay Well!
