What to know about the Zika virus

January 28, 2016

The Zika virus is spreading like wildfire through the media, causing mass panic around the globe. But how much do we actually know about the condition?

Zika has been linked to major birth defects as the virus can be transmitted from mother to foetus, or even to newborns, although this is more rare.

"The major concern with Zika virus and pregnancy is possibly a link to a condition known as microcephaly," Niket Sonpal, M.D., associate clinical professor at Touro College of Medicine in New York City, states, according to shape.com. "With this condition, the baby's head is much smaller than expected, which can lead to many neurological problems."

Is There A Cure For Hiccups?

January 19, 2016

There’s nothing more frustrating than being stuck with a persistent case of the hiccups. So what’s really going on?

Hiccups happen when your diaphragm – the sheet of muscle surrounding your lungs that’s responsible for respiration – contracts involuntarily. At the same time, your voice box contracts, too, causing that jump in your chest and producing that annoying hiccup sound.

“Hiccup bouts are usually caused by your stomach getting too inflated too quickly from overeating or even carbonated beverages,” says Niket Sonpal, assistant clinical professor of gastroenterology at Touro College of Medicine. “Other causes, such as excessive alcohol ingestion or emotional stress, can also precipitate hiccups.”

Can You Actually Cure Your Hiccups?

January 19, 2016

“Hiccup bouts are usually caused by your stomach getting too inflated too quickly from overeating or even carbonated beverages,” says Niket Sonpal, M.D., assistant clinical professor of gastroenterology at Touro College of Medicine. “Other causes, such as excessive alcohol ingestion or emotional stress, can also precipitate hiccups.”

For the most part, hiccups are totally normal and not cause for concern. However, “persistent hiccups lasting more than 48 hours may necessitate a thorough medical evaluation,” says Sonpal. Similarly, if you find yourself wrestling with regular bouts of hiccups for a month or more, it might be time to see the doc. Although rare, hiccups like this could be caused by a serious cardiovascular, neurologic, or gastrointestinal disorder—not something you want to play around with.

There’s nothing more frustrating than being stuck with a persistent case of the hiccups. So what’s really going on?

Hiccups happen when your diaphragm—the sheet of muscle surrounding your lungs that’s responsible for a little ol' thing called respiration—contracts involuntarily.

‘It Doesn’t Get Any Better,’ Says Medical College Dean After Seeing Shen Yun

January 15, 2016

It’s a city of artistic pioneers, a city of explosive cultural exchanges, a city of diversity and creativity. And perfectly exemplifying this spirit is Shen Yun Performing Arts, a refreshing performance offering audiences glimpses into authentic, traditional Chinese culture spanning five millennia of history and civilization.

It’s a cultural heritage that has largely been lost, because the Chinese Communist Party has attempted to stifle and destroy it with movements like the Cultural Revolution. But Shen Yun is bringing it back.

“In a place like New York City, to have this kind of talent, and to be culturally stimulated and energized, it doesn’t get any better,” exclaimed Jerry Cammarata, Chief Operating Officer and Dean of Student Affairs at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, after seeing a sold-out showing of Shen Yun at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center on Jan. 15.

Kourtney Kardashian: If You Def Want Scott Disick Back, Then End Justin Bieber Fling

December 14, 2015

Kourtney Kardashian, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with you having fun hookups with young hottie Justin Bieber, 21. However, if rekindling love with Scott Disick — even if for the sake of the kids — is on your To Do list at all, then say bye-bye to doing the Biebs.

Your Justin affair could send Scott either off the wagon again or into the arms of a whole bunch of other women. “It may send him into a tailspin, to start ‘using’ [drugs and alcohol] again. He doesn’t do well with emotional pain,” points out psychologist Jeff Gardere, PhD and assistant professor at the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. “On the other hand, it could push him into winning Kourtney back.”
