Rural microbes could boost city dwellers’ health, according to new paper involving CU-Boulder

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Categories:AcademicsScience & TechnologyCampus CommunityNews Headlines Published: April 23, 2014 “Chronic inflammation can lead to all kinds of problems from irritable bowel syndrome to asthma to allergies and even depression,” said Christopher Lowry, an associate professor in CU-Boulder’s Department of Integrative Physiology and a co-author of the paper. “The rise of chronic inflammation and these associated disorders, especially among people living in the cities of developed countries, is troubling.” The greater prevalence of asthma, allergies and other chronic inflammatory disorders among people of lower socioeconomic status might be due in part to their reduced exposure to the microbes that thrive in rural environments, according to a new scientific paper co-authored by a University of Colorado Boulder researcher.The article, published in the journal Clinical & Experimental Immunology, argues that people living in urban centers who have less access to green spaces may be more apt to have chronic inflammation, a condition caused by immune system dysfunction.When our immune systems are working properly, they trigger inflammation to fight off dangerous infections, but the inflammation disappears when the infection is gone. However, a breakdown in immune system function can cause a low level of inflammation to persist indefinitely. Such chronic inflammation can cause a host of health disorders.“Chronic inflammation can lead to all kinds of problems from irritable bowel syndrome to asthma to allergies and even depression,” said Christopher Lowry, an associate professor in CU-Boulder’s Department of Integrative Physiology and a co-author of the paper. “The rise of chronic inflammation and these associated disorders, especially among people living in the cities of developed countries, is troubling.”The two other article co-authors are Graham Rook of UCL (University College London) and Charles Raison of the University of Arizona.Some scientists have hypothesized that the increase of chronic inflammation in wealthier Western countries is connected to lifestyles that have essentially become too clean. The so-called “hygiene hypothesis” is based on the notion that some microbes and infections interact with the immune system to suppress inflammation and that eliminating exposure to those things could compromise your health.But the idea that picking up more germs could boost our immune system function does not at first seem to hold up when applied to low-income urbanites, who suffer disproportionately from both infections caused by germs and disorders linked to chronic inflammation. The authors of the new paper say this apparent disconnect is due to a misunderstanding of the hygiene hypothesis.The authors agree that microbes and some types of infections are important because they can keep the immune system from triggering inflammation when it’s not necessary, as happens with asthma attacks and allergic reactions.But they say the infections that were historically important to immune system development have largely been eliminated in developed countries. The modern diseases we pick up from school, work and other crowded areas today do not actually lead to lower instances of inflammatory disorders. “The idea that we’re too clean—that gives the wrong impression,” said Lowry. “You want people to wash their hands because hygiene is important to avoid infections that are harmful.”During our evolutionary history, the human immune system was exposed to microbes and infections in three important ways: commensal microbes were passed to infants from their mothers and other family members; people came into contact with nonpathogenic microbes in the environment; and people lived with chronic infections, such as helminths, which are parasitic worms found in the gut and blood.In order for those “old infections” to be tolerated in the body for long periods of time, they evolved a mechanism to keep the human immune system from triggering inflammation. Similarly, environmental bacteria, which were abundant and harmless, were tolerated by the immune system.According to Rook, a professor at UCL, “Helminthic parasites need to be tolerated by the immune system because, although not always harmless, once they are established in the host efforts by the immune system to eliminate them are futile, and merely cause tissue damage.”In contrast, relatively modern “crowd infections,” such as measles or chicken pox, cause an inflammatory response. The result is that either the sick person dies or the infection is wiped out by the inflammation and the person becomes immune from having the same infection again in the future.Collectively, the authors refer to the microbes and old infections that had a beneficial impact on the function of our immune systems as “old friends.” Exposure to old friends plays an important role in guarding against inflammatory disorders, the authors said. Because the “old infections” are largely absent from the developed world, exposure to environmental microbes—such as those found in rural environments, like farms and green spaces—has likely become even more important.The authors say this would explain why low-income urban residents—who cannot easily afford to leave the city for rural vacations—are more likely to suffer from inflammatory disorders. The problem is made worse because people who live in densely populated areas also are more likely to contract crowd infections, which cause more inflammation.In other words, city dwellers of low socioeconomic status might benefit both from being “cleaner” and “dirtier,” depending on the context. Like all people, better hygiene—like washing their hands more frequently, for example—could help them avoid crowd infections while more opportunities to “play in the dirt,” like visiting green spaces, could allow their immune systems to come into contact with more beneficial microbes.“You don’t want the crowd infections,” said Lowry. “But you do want to find ways to increase your exposure to ‘old friends.’ ”Contact: Christopher Lowry, University of Colorado Boulder, [email protected] Graham Rook, UCL, +44 (0) 20 7606 [email protected] Charles Raison, University of [email protected] Laura Snider, CU-Boulder media relations, [email protected]last_img read more

11 score in Hilton win over Penfield

first_img11 score in Hilton win over Penfield Connect on Linked in Subscribe by Email Follow on Facebook Hilton’s Colin Burkis (10) handles the ball during fourth-quarter action, Thursday night. Penfield’s RJ Wilkins (20) defends on the play.By JOHN LIKANJEROCHESTER, N.Y. — The Hilton Cadets have managed to stay sharp despite a schedule in the early going that had few games.  Although the Section V Boys Basketball season started right before Thanksgiving, head coach Troy Prince’s squad did not play their first game until December 7th at Rush-Henrietta (W: 61-47).“Make practice pretty competitive to where everything’s a competition,” Prince explained about how he has kept his team prepared for games. “We probably have 10 different little contests on a daily basis.”Since then, the Cadets (4-0) have played three games over the past couple of weeks, including Thursday night as they defeated the Penfield Patriots (1-5), 81-51.Three players scored in double figures for the Cadets. Junior guard Tah-jae Hill came off the bench and netted a team-high 19 points, including going 10-10 from the free throw line, knocking down a shot from beyond the arc, and finishing two breakaway layups after a steal-one of them being a dunk.“They were playing a lot of zone,” Prince explained when observing the Patriots’ defense. “We emphasized that against the man, we want to be a little bit more unselfish and against the zone, we want to attack. We kind of took those philosophies and blended them. We attack and swung it and made the extra pass.”Senior forward Mitchell Carr scored seven straight in the first quarter on a long-range shot from the right corner and a couple of layups to give the Cadets a 24-9 lead. He finished with 18 points, including converting six free throws.“Getting Mitch going is huge because he’s such a good scorer,” Prince said about Carr’s performance. “I thought tonight was the first night other than our scrimmages in which he displayed that.”Sophomore forward Ryan Kurtz was efficient around the basket, making five layups as part of his 17 points. He also swished a three-pointer from the right corner and was 4-4 from the charity stripe.In the third quarter, Hill and Carr combined to go on a 7-0 run to extend the lead to 50-26. In the first half, the Cadets had multiple double-digit scoring runs to aid their fast start to the game. In the second quarter, Carr, Hill, and junior guard Colin Burkis did all the scoring during a 17-3 spurt for a 37-12 edge. After giving up a three-pointer on the first possession of the game, the quartet of Burkis, Carr, Kurtz, and senior guard Noah Malta responded with a 13-0 run of their own.Burkis (9), Alexander Mistretta (5), Jack Gombatto (4), Sean Alabaugh (2), Jason Story (2), Malta (2), Davion Savage (2), and Najier Daniels (1) rounded out the scoring for the Cadets.“I’m happy for the guys that haven’t had an opportunity to go in a whole lot,” Prince said after 11 of his 13 players scored tonight. “We played a terrific first half on both ends of the floor and got those guys an opportunity that they deserved because they work hard every day and are great teammates.”For the Patriots, senior guard Javion Monroe scored a team-high 10 points.Ryan Wilkins (8), Patrick Piampiano (7), Daniel Vercruysse (6), Ethan Fici (4), Matthew Gable (3), Collin Pichany (3), Jayden Bulger (2), Roderick Green (2), Tyler Salmon (2), Ryan Wensley (2), and Brady Flanagan (2) rounded out the scoring for the Patriots.Hilton has another week off before hosting a tournament next Friday night featuring Bishop Kearney, Greece Athena, and Eastridge. The Cadets will match up with Kearney in the nightcap of the first round. Game set to tip off at 6:30 PM.“It’s going to be a great tournament,” Prince said as he looks forward to next week. “Some guys may be young, but they (Bishop Kearney) got some talent.”“Starting with the (Kidtrell) Blocker kid, he is trouble,” he continued. “He’s terrific. Miles Monchecourt is tough. I went and watched them last week and they got a lot of answers.” Share on Facebook 11 score in Hilton win over Penfield added by johnmitchelllikanje on December 21, 2018View all posts by johnmitchelllikanje →FacebookTwitter分享by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksSponsor ContentBig Data Courses | Search AdOnline Big Data Courses Might Be Better than You ThinkBig Data Courses | Search AdCosmoWomensTop 30 Most Beautiful Women in the WorldCosmoWomensLovely&HealthyTop 10 Most Dangerous Cruises In The World Lovely&Healthyby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksMore from Pickin’ SplintersBaron keeps Bonaventure close to his heart – Pickin’ SplintersTah-Jae Hill, Zion Morrison and the Starting Five – Pickin’ Splinters”If you had a Mount Rushmore of MCC baseball, he’s on there.” Longtime assistant Jack Christensen passes away – Pickin’ Splinters center_img Print This Post By johnmitchelllikanje on December 21, 2018No Comment Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.

Second-half shutout leads McQuaid to Class AA final

first_img Follow on Facebook By Chuckie Maggio on November 1, 2019No Comment Second-half shutout leads McQuaid to Class AA final Connect on Linked in By CHUCKIE MAGGIOThe Pittsford Panthers had several opportunities to close the gap in Friday’s Section V Class AA football semifinal, but getting the ball back on a muffed punt may have been the biggest.McQuaid dropped and lost the punt around midfield with 10:36 left in the game. The Jesuit Knights’ formidable offense did not score in the third quarter and the defense was facing a halved field in a two-score, 20-7 game.The Jesuit Knights responded as championship defenses do, as that unit had all evening. They tackled ballcarrier Lavontae Bonds for a loss of two on first down. They stopped Bonds for another two-yard loss on second down. The Panthers went with Bonds yet again on third down; McQuaid stopped him for no gain.Pittsford, forced to punt just two minutes after they recovered the last one, almost had some more special teams magic in them when McQuaid bobbled the fair catch. This time, the Knights held on. Pittsford wouldn’t see midfield again and McQuaid won by the same 20-7 score.“It was huge,” McQuaid coach Bobby Bates said of the crucial stop. “That was huge that they got us the ball back and we were able to establish a little bit of a drive and get enough first downs that we could take a couple knees and run out the clock. Just a tribute to our defense and the way they played all night and how they’ve played all season.”The Knights allowed fewer than 100 yards of total offense in a dominant performance. The second half was completely scoreless, but keeping the Panthers off the board buoyed them to the sectional final, where they’ll either face long-time rival Aquinas or red-hot Hilton next Saturday.One of the most commonly heard directives on the McQuaid sideline is the Knights’ coaches imploring the defense to get the offense the ball back as soon as possible.“Get off the field! Get off the field!” the staff yells. More often than not, the players comply; McQuaid has allowed just 35 points in its last four outings.Jordan Brongo led the Knights in tackles (nine) and sacks (two). Will Teresi recorded six tackles, while Quinn Bergeron added five.“Our defense just plays with a lot of grit, a lot of tenacity,” Bates commented. “To see them come out and play, the whole game… they were very resilient. I’m just really proud of the way they play, and fly to the ball and gang tackle people. Really proud of our defense.”The only points for the first 21 minutes were produced by the foot of Nick Woods, who drilled two in the second quarter. On the Knights’ next drive, however, Woods only needed to add an extra point. McQuaid broke through with 2:38 until half, when junior Joe Cairns found senior Casey Howlett for a 25-yard touchdown on third and four.Howlett’s grab opened the floodgates for the first and only time in the game.Pittsford returned the ensuing kickoff to McQuaid’s 46-yard line, keying a quick scoring drive capped by Caleb Arena’s goal line rush with 51 seconds left in the second quarter.McQuaid, faced with a less-than-one-minute drill, answered in just 43 seconds when Cairns fired a touchdown pass to an open Brongo in the middle of the red zone with eight seconds left until the break. The TD was part of a 9-of-14, 190-yard performance from Cairns.Howlett had four receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown, while Brongo tacked on two catches for 52 yards and his score. Jack Miller’s one reception went for 57 yards to add to 80 rushing yards on 19 carries. Jack Beauchamp ran six times for 54 yards.“Joe’s just a very solid, solid kid,” Bates remarked of his quarterback. “He’s a very solid quarterback, manages the game well, understands the concepts that we’re trying to run and what the defense gives us. I think Joe’s very zoned in and locked in to what his role is and works the scheme very well.”The Knights are one win away from their first sectional football title in 41 years. They have made their sectional run without injured star running back Andrew Passero, while wide receiver Josh Gaddy didn’t play Friday either, adding another layer to their success.“Being a part of a team, the next guy’s gotta step up and do his job and fill that role,” Bates said. “When a player goes down with an injury, you’ve just gotta step up for the next one and go with him.” Print This Post Share on Facebookcenter_img Subscribe by Email Second-half shutout leads McQuaid to Class AA final added by Chuckie Maggio on November 1, 2019View all posts by Chuckie Maggio →FacebookTwitter分享by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksSponsor ContentAirPhysioThis All-Natural “Lung Cleaning” Device Helps Anyone Breathe EasierAirPhysioBig Data Courses | Search AdOnline Big Data Courses Might Be Better than You ThinkBig Data Courses | Search AdCosmoWomensTop 30 Most Beautiful Women in the WorldCosmoWomensby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksMore from Pickin’ SplintersBaron keeps Bonaventure close to his heart – Pickin’ SplintersTah-Jae Hill, Zion Morrison and the Starting Five – Pickin’ Splinters”If you had a Mount Rushmore of MCC baseball, he’s on there.” Longtime assistant Jack Christensen passes away – Pickin’ Splinters Add to Google+ Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
