    A New Strategy for Suicide Prevention

    in Health

    Drs. Barbara Stanley and J. John Mann will be speaking


    Every year, there are more than 30,000 suicides and ten times as many suicide attempts in the United States.  Better prevention is urgently required. That requires improving our knowledge of the causes of suicidal behavior.  We know psychiatric disorders, most commonly major depression, are associated with suicide. But most people with a psychiatric disorder never attempt suicide. The group at higher risk of suicide have a predisposition to suicidal behavior. Learning about how genes and childhood experiences affect how we deal with stress, depression and make decisions, and how those functions are in turn related to brain functioning are key to understanding why people die by suicide.  The Conte Center for Translational Neuroscience at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, has been at the forefront of this research. 


    Differences in brain circuitry in suicide attempters are linked to the predisposition to suicidal behavior and are the result of a combination of genes and childhood adversity. Evaluating brain circuitry of family members of those who have suicided or made serious nonlethal suicide attempts may identify a higher risk group.  The Conte Center for Suicide Prevention uses two brain imaging modalities, positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), along with several biobehavioral measures to study risk and resilience factors for suicide in patients with major depression. 


    In this radio program, we will describe how we seek to prevent suicide by studying the brain biology and abnormalities in stress coping and mood regulation that increase risk of suicidal behavior, and then seeking ways to reverse these effects.

    in Business

    The average small business may not think that the same exposures for hacking, like what happened to Home Depot or Target, apply to them, but the truth is that small and Main Street businesses are far more vulnerable and face a greater risk.

    COLON CANCER PREVENTION AND DEALING WITH "ROOT CAUSES"

    in Health

    TUNE IN NEXT SATURDAY at 12N FOR ANOTHER INFORMATIVE PROGRAM BY HEALTH BY DESIGN.


    Among cancers that affect both men and women, colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon or rectum) is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Every year, about 140,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and more than 50,000 people die from it. But this disease is highly preventable, by getting screened beginning at age 50.


    What You Can Do



    If you’re aged 50 to 75, get screened for colorectal cancer regularly. Screening tests help prevent colorectal cancer by finding precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) so they can be removed.

    50. The FX of Autism Awareness

    in Lifestyle

    Autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.


    About 1 in 68 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in a report from 2014. This represents a 30% increase from the 1 in 88 reports of children reported to have autism in 2012. White children are more likely than Black or Hispanic children to receive an autism diagnosis. And Black children and girls are more likely to have intellectual disability along with their autism. The most notable shift is the growing proportion of those who have average or above-average intelligence, rising from 30 percent in 2002 to nearly 50 percent in 2010. 


    Monday evening, the 50th episode of The GreenHouse FX Radio Show, we will increase our knowledge of autism... Supporting those who are deal with this diagnoses everyday... Celebrating their struggles and triumphs. There has been an increase in early diagnosis, this is a reflection of successful public awareness efforts... this Monday, join us to continue those efforts.
