More than half of poor families and a third of middle income families had no health insuranceduring the preceding year, and a substantial number had been without insurance for longer than that, according to a new survey by the Commonwealth Fund.
The survey found that 57 percent of adults in families who earn less than $29,726 (which is 133 percent of the poverty level) were uninsured at some point in the preceding year, and more than a third of those individuals lacked insurance for two years or more.
Moving up the income bracket, the survey found that more than one-third of adults in moderate-income families — those earning between $29,726 and $55,875 for a family of four (133 to 249 percent of the poverty level) — were uninsured during the preceding year, and 18 percent had been uninsured for two years or more.
In contrast, about one in 10 adults in families with incomes at four times the poverty level — at or above $89,400 for a family of four — were uninsured at some point during the preceding year, and just 3 percent were uninsured for two years or more.
“People with low and moderate incomes run the highest risk of lacking job-based health insurance, are least able to afford health insurance on their own, and are the most at risk of not being able to afford care in the absence of coverage,” Commonwealth Fund vice president and lead author Sara Collins said in a press release. “Consequently, problems getting needed care in the United States are disproportionately concentrated among low- and moderate-income families.”
The survey is based on responses from a randomly-selected sample of 977 low-income adults ages 19 to 64 who completed an online survey. It was conducted in the summer of 2011. The survey focused on adults, not children, because most low-income children are covered by Medicaid, which varies by state.
The survey also found that adults in low-earning families without insurance often lack recommended preventive health screenings.
Just 10 percent of low-income uninsured adults over the age of 50 had received the recommended screening for colon cancer, just one-third of low-income uninsured women ages 40 to 64 had received a mammogram, and just one-third of adults with low and moderate incomes had had their cholesterol checked in the past five years.
By comparison, those in the same income range with insurance were much more likely to have the screening tests, and those with higher incomes also were more likely to be screened, regardless of insurance status.
The most common reason given for skipping a recommended cancer screening test was that the individual didn’t think the test was necessary. But cost was a factor, too, especially among those who were uninsured at some point in the past year. For instance, 10 percent of women with insurance didn’t get a Pap test in the previous year because of cost, while 40 percent of women without insurance said cost was the reason they didn’t get the test.
Low- and moderate-income adults without health insurance also were less likely to report having a regular doctor and reported going to the emergency room for nonemergency reasons — such as needing a prescription or feeling that other sources of medical care cost too much — more often than those with insurance in the same income bracket.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) will “narrow, if not entirely eliminate, the profound income inequities that currently exist in the U.S. health care system,” the study authors said. The law bans insurers from denying coverage based on a person’s existing illness and requires insurers to cover proven preventive services free of charge to the patient.
In 2014 — the year that everyone will be required to have health insurance — insurers will no longer be able to charge more based on gender or age, Medicaid requirements will be lowered so more people will be eligible for the program, and insurance exchanges will start functioning and people who qualify will be given subsidies to help them purchase a plan from their state’s exchange.
Interested in adopting healthier habits? You have a better chance of success if you find a friend with similar traits to share the experience, a new study suggests.
Participants paired with others of similar body mass, age, fitness level and diet preferences were three times as likely to adopt healthy behaviors as those matched randomly in an Internet-based study conducted by a researcher from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
“I think the reality is, we as individuals may have less motivation to change on our own than if we’re surrounded by our peer group, even if we met on a social network site,” said Dr. Victor Fornari, director of child and adolescent psychiatry at North Shore-LIJ Health System in New Hyde Park, N.Y., who is familiar with the study. “We’re very influenced by the group phenomenon.”
The study is published in the Dec. 2 issue of the journal Science.
For the study, an online social network was created to promote health and fitness. Broken into small groups of “health buddies,” 710 participants were introduced to the idea of an online diet diary through a “dummy” participant who invited others to take part. Each participant was provided with a personalized, online “health dashboard” that displayed real-time information, such as daily exercise minutes, healthy behaviors and personal characteristics of the health buddies.
At the end of seven weeks, those who were matched with health buddies using the principle of “homophily” — the tendency of people to have similar friends — were far more likely to use the diet diary and take part in other healthy behaviors than participants whose buddies were assigned randomly. Not one obese individual signed up for the diet diary in the random networks, compared to more than 12 percent of obese participants in the similarly matched networks.
The results also suggest that the most effective social environment for increasing the willingness of obese people to adopt a behavior is one where they interact with others with similar health characteristics, the study said.
“I think it was a pretty brilliant study,” said Tricia M. Leahey, an assistant professor of psychiatry and human behavior at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Miriam Hospital’s Weight Control and Diabetes Research Center in Providence. “It’s neat that they’re actually starting to manipulate a social network in a way specific to homophily.”
Group therapy is also partially based on the premise that people can empathize better with others they relate to, said Dr. Alan Manevitz, a clinical psychiatrist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.
“The question of whether people can benefit from role models that show how to move out of similar thinking is also part and parcel of the development of social networks,” Manevitz said. “We all need to be able to interact with people who can promote other senses of self, that you can take in and create within yourself.”
However, the current findings refute prior research. Leahey wrote a study published in January 2011 that indicated that overweight people tend to have more social contacts who are also overweight or obese.
“We can say, ‘Gee, if I’m in a network of relatively healthy individuals and become friends with someone who’s overweight or obese, we might be influenced by this one individual,'” she said. “So I guess it cuts both ways.”
Stem cell research is one of the most talked-about fields in modern medicine. It’s also one of the most misunderstood. Many people associate it with only embryonic stem cells, which are a source of much ethical debate, but there’s actually an entire world of data and inquiry that involves adult stem cells, which are found in our own bodies and may hold the key to treating some important health conditions.
Recent headlines, for example, have touted “major breakthroughs” in adult stem cell science and cardiovascular disease, and a number of high-profile celebrities, politicians, and athletes have undergone experimental stem cell treatments for pain and nerve damage. As more and more people seek out information about these procedures, here’s what you need to know.
Adult Stem Cells vs. Embryonic Stem Cells
Compared with the field of embryonic stem cell research, adult stem cell research is relatively new territory. For a long time, the medical community was interested primarily in embryonic stem cells, which are pluripotent, meaning they have the potential to generate any one of the 200 other cell types in the human body. Adult stem cells, conversely, are thought to be limited to forming types of cells based on their tissue of origin. For example, hematopoietic stem cells, found in bone marrow, give rise to blood cells, while adipose-derived stem cells, found in fat, give rise to adipocyte (fat) cells. Recent research has suggested that some types of stem cells may be able to transform into other cells via a process called transdifferentiation, but data – and scientific opinion – is mixed on this point.
Moreover, says Donald Kohn, MD, a scientist with the Broad Stem Cell Research Center at UCLA, “adult stem cells in general don’t have the ability to make more of themselves. When we take them from, say, the bone marrow, we can’t make more of them. The number we get out of the body is the most we have, and by the time we give them back [as in a transplant], we have less.” This, along with the fact that adult cells can be difficult to isolate from tissue, made pluripotent embryonic stem cells initially more compelling to researchers.
In recent years, however, scientists have shifted some of the focus to adult stem cells, partly out of necessity – federal and state legislation restricts funding for projects involving the creation, treatment, or destruction of embryos for research purposes – and partly because of new discoveries about the benefits of adult cells.
For one thing, Kohn says, there may be less risk of rejection with adult stem cells, since they’re often autologous, meaning they come from a person’s own body. “Embryonic stem cells don’t match your patient,” he explains. There’s a risk, as with any transplant, that the body won’t accept them.
Second, adult stem cells are readily available to everyone. We all have them inside of us – in our organs, bone marrow, blood, fat, etc. – so there’s a built-in (though limited) supply of donor material that matches our genetic makeup.
Finally, and perhaps most notably, adult stem cells don’t present the same ethical issues associated with embryonic stem cells, which, when harvested, result in the destruction of the embryo – a point of much controversy and debate in the medical, political, and religious sectors. Adult stem cells sidestep this problem because there’s no loss of human or potential human life.
Stem Cell Procedures in the News
Which is not to say, however, that adult stem cell research is immune to controversy.
Earlier this year, in July, Texas governor and Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry raised some eyebrows – and red flags – when he underwent an experimental stem cell procedure to fuse part of his spine. The treatment, which was done outside of an approved clinical trial, involved liposuctioning fat from Perry’s body, separating and re-growing the stem cells from that fat, and then reinjecting the cells into Perry’s back and bloodstream in the hopes that they would form bone or cartilage. At the time, experts in the field balked at Perry’s decision to have the procedure, saying there was no scientific evidence to support its effectiveness – or, more importantly, its safety – and that by choosing to pursue an untested treatment, the politician risked blood clots, infection, even cancer cell growth.
“[Perry] went far outside mainstream medicine to treat his bad back – an irresponsible choice that endangered himself and anyone who might follow his lead,” wrote Arthur Caplan, PhD, director of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania, in a commentary for MSNBC. “The promise of adult stem cells may be fulfilled one day, but that day is not yet here.”
Caplan’s worry that high-profile procedures like Perry’s send the wrong message to patients is a concern shared by many in the stem cell research community. “When a highly visible celebrity/athlete chooses to undergo an untested/unproven therapy, and if they happen to get better without knowing whether the therapy is what caused the improvement, they encourage many other people to ignore scientific evidence and to substitute hope and blind trust for proof,” said Lawrence Goldstein, PhD, director of the University of California-San Diego Stem Cell Program, in an e-mail to ABCNews.com. “The downside is that many people might be hurt by subjecting themselves to a risky procedure, or a procedure with unknown risks, when there is no evidence of benefit to be gained.”
Dr. Goldstein’s statement was in response to news that Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning had reportedly flown to Europe in September to take advantage of an unapproved stem cell procedure that he hoped would fix a nerveinjury in his neck. (It didn’t.) Other athletes who have had similarly controversial procedures to heal sports injuries include Yankees pitcher Bartolo Colon and football player Terrell Owens.
Most recently, actress Suzanne Somers revealed that she had undergone a new stem cell treatment to regrow her right breast after losing most of it to cancer more than a decade ago. Somers’ procedure, unlike others mentioned here, was part of an approved clinical trial and involved injecting stem cell-enriched fat into her breast to replace the damaged tissue. You can learn more about her treatmenthere.
The Current and Future State of Adult Stem Cell Research
Of course, not all stem cell procedures are as polarizing as those performed on Perry and Manning. Bone marrow stem cell transplants, using hematopoietic (blood) cells, have actually been used for decades – since about 1970 – as a treatment for certain genetic diseases and cancers, namely those affecting the blood, bone marrow, and lymphatic system. In fact, Everyday Health television show host and former Survivor winner Ethan Zohn had one in 2009 after he was diagnosed with and treated for a rare form of Hodgkin lymphoma.
Standard first line of treatment for both leukemia and lymphoma depends on a variety of factors but generally includes some amount of chemotherapy with or without radiation and/or surgery. In many cases, however – such as those in which the cancer comes back after a period of remission or is initially unresponsive to treatment – patients may require high-dose chemo, which destroys not only the cancer cells but also some of the individual’s healthy cells.
“Normally, we temper how much chemo we give so that we don’t damage the bone marrow too much,” Kohn says. “But with hematopoietic stem cell transplants, you can push up to the next level and give a lot more. Hopefully you wipe out the cancer – but you also wipe out normal bone marrow. So the stem cells are used to rescue you.”
In most cases, Kohn notes, the stem cells used are autologous (your own). Doctors extract them from your blood or bone marrow prior to administering the chemo, freeze them, and then reinject them into your bloodstream after treatment. Over time, they return to the bone, replacing the marrow and generating new blood cells.
In situations where an autologous transplant is not possible or has already been done, doctors may use cells from a donor whose tissue type matches the patient’s. This is riskier, because of the chance of rejection, but it’s not uncommon.
“Thousands of hematopoietic transplants are performed every year,” Kohn says. And other life-saving procedures may be on the way.

Incredible Facts to Note on Human Growth Hormone A fact that is worth stating is that some people use human growth hormone with the purpose that it will keep them feeling and looking youthful but according to health experts state that these claims are unfounded and if used they can be harmful. An obvious fact is that human growth hormone is natural hormone produced by the body by the pituitary gland and it is responsible for growth in children by helping to regulation the body composition, fluids in the body, the growth of muscle and bones, the metabolism of fat and sugar and even affects the function of the heart but it can also be synthetically produced in factories as a part of prescription drugs and in other products. Human growth hormone was discovered in 1985 and approved for mass production for specific uses in children and adults and the hormone is approved for curing short stature caused by unknown causes and poor growth because of many medical causes such as Turner’s syndrome that is a genetic disorder that interferes with a girl’s development and Prader-Willi syndrome which is a rare genetic disease that causes poor muscle tone, low amounts of sex hormones and a constant hunger feeling. The other disease that can be cured by human growth hormone is chronic kidney insufficiency, the deficiency of human growth hormone and children that are born with a small weight for their gestational age. Its uses in adults include it’s used in treating short bowel syndrome which is a condition in which nutrients are not absorbed properly because of a severe intestinal disease or the surgical excision of a large part of the ileum. An important fact to note is that the other adult uses for the hormone include the treatment of human growth hormone deficiency due to rare tumors of the pituitary and muscle-wasting associated with HIV/AIDS. There are some uses of human growth hormone that are not scientifically approved such as using the hormone along with performance-enhancing drugs such as anabolic steroids so that they can build muscle and improve athletic performance but this effect has no scientific evidence. Because the human growth hormone normally decreases with age and this belief that the hormone has anti-aging effects and some anti-aging experts have suspected that human growth hormone products can be used to reverse age-related bodily deterioration. Some people get injectable human growth hormone from physicians that prescribe it for uses that are not medically approved and through other channels like internet pharmacies, anti-aging websites and clinics. A known fact is that other people purchase human growth products or products that claim to boost the production the body’s own human growth hormone that come in the form of sprays and pills and companies that market these products claim that they can turn back the aging process, build muscle, reduce fat and restore the colour of hair and its color.5 Uses For Therapies
