Mediterranean Diet versus a Low-Carbohydrate Diet in Reducing Colorectal Cancer Risk

Crystal McGeown, DMSc

Article Type: Literature Review | First Published: December 16, 2021

A variety of foods have been studied in relation to colorectal cancer risk. There is research on certain foods that cause colon cancer or have a protective factor against it but there is limited research comparing diets. While the literature indicates a benefit to the Mediterranean diet in reducing the risk of colon cancer, studies on a lowcarbohydrate diet, such as the Atkins or ketogenic diets, and the incidence of colorectal cancer are less common. Therefore, this study aims to compare the Me...

John Ferguson, MD, MPH, Cyprien Jungels, DO and Michael Gailey, DO

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: December 16, 2021

Similar to that of bacterial infection, the performance of diagnostic tests for endemic fungal pneumonia and opportunistic fungal pneumonia are uncertain. We undertook a literature search to assess the accuracy of diagnostic tests for pneumonia, identified through a search of MEDLINE-indexed journals. Sensitivity and specificity of diagnostic tests for pneumonia were calculated with respect to various reference standards. A combination of diagnostic testing is adequate to rule out most endemic f...
