Children's Hay Fever Relieved by Cellulose Powder Without Adverse Effects



  ScienceDaily (June 28, 2011) -- A cellulose powder has been used increasingly for many years against allergic rhinitis. Still, there has been a shortage of scientific evidence for its efficacy in seasonal allergic rhinitis (hay fever), particularly in children. Now, however, scientists have shown that the cellulose powder reduces symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis in children. Researchers did not find any adverse effects. The powder is produced from pine trees and forms a...

Heat in Chili Peppers Can Ease Sinus Problems



  ScienceDaily (Aug. 25, 2011) -- Hot chili peppers are known to make people "tear up," but a new study led by University of Cincinnati allergy researcher Jonathan Bernstein, MD, found that a nasal spray containing an ingredient derived from hot chili peppers (Capsicum annum) may help people "clear up" certain types of sinus inflammation. The study, which appears in the August 2011 edition of Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, compares the use...

Antibiotics Ineffective for Most Sinus Infections, Study Finds



ScienceDaily (Feb. 14, 2012) -- Antibiotics that doctors typically prescribe for sinus infections do not reduce symptoms any better than an inactive placebo, according to investigators at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. "Patients don't get better faster or have fewer symptoms when they get antibiotics," says Jay F. Piccirillo, MD, professor of otolaryngology and the study's senior author. "Our results show that antibiotics aren't necessary for a basic sinus infection --...

Organic Food Sweetener May Be a Hidden Source of Dietary Arsenic



ScienceDaily (Feb. 16, 2012) -- As people seek healthier dietary regimens they often turn to things labeled "organic." Lurking in the background, however, is an ingredient that may be a hidden source of arsenic -- an element known to be both toxic and potentially carcinogenic. Organic brown rice syrup has become a preferred alternative to using high fructose corn syrup as a sweetener in food. High fructose corn syrup has been criticized as a...

Bisphenol A Exposure Linked to Increased Risk of Future Onset of Heart Disease



ScienceDaily (Feb. 23, 2012) -- Bisphenol A (BPA) is a controversial chemical widely used in the plastics industry. A new study followed people over a 10-year time period and shows that healthy people with higher urine concentrations of BPA were more likely to later develop heart disease. But researchers "can't be certain that BPA itself is responsible" -- more research needed to determine whether the link is causal. The study was carried out by...
