Monterey, CA Radiation Therapy To Reprogram Deadly Heart Arrhythmias

Those with a fast and abnormal heart rate, a condition called ventricular tachycardia (VT) now have a new option.  Researchers at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in tandem with Washington University School of Medicine have used radiation to repair damaged heart tissue, although it’s still an experimental procedure so insurance may or may not cover it.  The procedure is noninvasive, and doctors have now performed in on a number of people.  For more information, contact the Tyler Heart Institute at the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula or CHOMP.

Monterey, CA Searching For A Cancer Cure

Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green has emerged from relative obscurity with a potential cure for cancer.  She is the first doctor to cure cancer in mice by using laser-activated nanoparticles.  A study published by the American Cancer Society estimated 607K people died from cancer in 2020.  Dr. Green’s cure does not require chemotherapy, radiation or surgery.  Following the successful initial research project, she has received a $1.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to expand the nanoparticle cancer treatment research.  She is fulfilling a lifelong dream after the death of her aunt Ora Lea, and her uncle, General Lee Smith, who both had cancer.  If you or a loved one are struggling with a cancer diagnosis, talk to someone at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.  CHOMP has a 24,000 square foot Comprehensive Cancer Support Center with a research library, information on clinical trials and support groups.

Monterey Bay Aquarium Let’s Natividad Store COVID-19 Vaccine In Freezers

Thanks to Monterey Bay Aquarium for allowing the use of their extra cold freezers to store incoming COVID-19 vaccine.  The Pfizer vaccine needs to be stored in industrial freezers, and now the Monterey Bay area has access to one of these freezers.  “We have started to see the vaccines arrive and we really see that as really our only pathway out of the pandemic,” said Andrea Rosenberg, Natividad Hospital Operations & Support Services and Assistant Administrator.  “So, there’s a lot of hope and excitement at the hospital with the arrival of these vaccines,” she continued.

Pacific Grove, CA Elder Abuse Alert : Customer Service Scams

AARP Bulletin had an elder abuse alert for our area.  The article profiled a 75-year old man who saw a charge on his credit card that he didn’t recognize for Amazon Prime.  He did a google search for Amazon’s phone number and called the number, which turned out to be fake.  They asked him to confirm his credit card number, as well as his Social Security number.  “Scammers will buy and place fake ads that often elude the filters for the online search engines,” Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser told AARP Bulletin.  They also tricked him into buying gift cards.  “When people are searching for customer service numbers, they are in a hurry and quickly scan for the first phone number they see,” he said.

Monterey, CA Diabetes Tip : Eat An Early Dinner

An early dinner could help you better manage your weight and your blood glucose.  A recent study in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that, of people chosen to randomly eat dinner at either 6:00 p.m. or 10:00 p.m., eating early was better.  The late-night diners burned 10% less fat overnight than those who ate at 6:00 p.m.  And their glucose rose 18% more and remained higher for four hours.  Eat dinner early!  For more information on living a healthy life with Diabetes, talk to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, CHOMP, which has an extensive program.
