WEBMD - Raising 'Good' Cholesterol May Cut Heart Risk in Diabetes Patients, Oct 18, 2011

"Oct. 7, 2011 -- Raising levels of HDL "good" cholesterol might play an important role in reducing heart disease and stroke risk in patients with type 2 diabetes, a new study shows.

Kaiser Permanente researchers reviewed the medical records of 30,067 type 2 diabetes patients who had their HDL measured twice, six to 24 months apart, in 2001 to 2006. The researchers looked at whether the patients had subsequently been hospitalized for heart disease or stroke.

They compared the hospitalization risk for people whose HDL levels rose or fell between the two measurements with those whose HDL levels remained fairly stable."

MONEY MORNING - These Three Men Represent Everything That's Wrong with Wall Street, Oct 18, 2011

"BY SHAH GILANI, Capital Waves Strategist, Money Morning
I've already expressed my desire to embrace the Occupy Wall Street movement. I said last week that I would join in whole-heartedly if I knew exactly what the protesters were trying to achieve.

But I don't know - and I'm not convinced they do, either.

Still, that doesn't mean we should dismiss them entirely. After all, there are millions of Americans who sense there's something terribly wrong with our capitalist system, but they can't pinpoint exactly what it is either."

MEDSCAPE - What's Killing Us? The 4 Deadliest Diseases, Oct 18, 2011

Defining Noncommunicable Diseases

Eli Y. Adashi, MD: Hello. I am Eli Adashi, Professor of Medical Science at Brown University and host of Medscape One-on-One. Joining me today is Dr. Téa Collins, Executive Director of The Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) Alliance, a Geneva-based advocacy organization, and expert in the practice and policy of global health. Dr. Collins joins the alliance at a critical time in its relatively brief history. Welcome.

Téa Collins, MD, MPH, MPA, DrPH: Thank you.

Dr. Adashi: Perhaps in the best interest of our viewers we could start by defining what comes under the heading of noncommunicable diseases, and then we could go from there.

Dr. Collins: Definitely. I think the title is somewhat unfortunate because with something that's called "non" it already means that it's not really very important. "Noncommunicable disease" is a relatively new term; we used to call them chronic conditions and chronic diseases, and I think physicians are still more used to this term. The reason we say "noncommunicable disease" in global health right now is because some of the communicable conditions became chronic, such as HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis. So to distinguish and differentiate somewhat, we say that these conditions are not communicable when we're talking about cancer, diabetes, or some chronic respiratory infections or cardiovascular diseases. We thought a lot about whether we wanted to continue calling them noncommunicable diseases and exactly because of this reason -- that it's "non" -- the consensus now is to just say noncommunicable diseases.
