Experts have been warning for several months that the COVID-19 pandemic is far from over, and that a fourth surge was not only likely, but inevitable. Now, this predicted spike of cases is a reality in one part of the country, and according to one top virus expert, this state needs to consider shutting down to save lives—while another warns it may happen in your state, too. Read on to find out what state should shut down per the expert—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise. 1 Michigan Should "Shut Down" Says Virus Expert Darren P. Mareiniss, MD, FACEP, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine Sidney Kimmel Medical College – Thomas Jefferson University, agrees with Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who yesterday recommended that the state of Michigan consider a shut down in response to their surge of COVID infections versus amp up vaccination, as recommended by the state's Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. "I agree with the CDC director," he tells Eat This, Not That! Health. "Michigan is in the middle of an evolving crisis. The infection rates are simply too high. There is really risk of overwhelming the state's healthcare resources. Voluntary mitigation is not working." As a result, Dr. Mareiniss believes that the governor should ban indoor dining and other high risk activities immediately. Read on for what this means when it comes to a potential surge in your state. 2 The CDC Chief Also Says Michigan Needs to "Flatten The Curve" With Shutdown The Michigan Governor has asked that the White House send more vaccine their way. "The answer is not necessarily to give vaccine," Dr. Walensky said at a White House news conference on Monday. "The answer to that is to really close things down, to go back to our basics, to go back to where we were last spring, last summer, and to shut things down, to flatten the curve, to decrease contact with one another, to test to the extent that we have available to contact trace." 3 Another Virus Expert Says That Michigan Should Serve as a Warning Michael Osterholm, the noted epidemiologist, Regents Professor, and Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, says Michigan should serve as a warning for us all. "These variants have been game-changers. And in particular, right now on an international stage, understand we are entering the darkest days," Osterholm said Thursday on his podcast. "Those that don't want to believe it, that's your problem. If you go look at the numbers, it's painful to see what's happening globally." He added: "We're not driving this tiger, we're riding it." 4 There are "Worrisome Increases" in Other Parts of America, Too The New York Times reported on Tuesday that while the South is doing relatively well in terms of low infection rates, the Upper Midwest and Northeast are experiencing troubling numbers, with Michigan faring the worst surge of all and the most drastic increase in both cases and hospitalization. Illinois and Minnesota are also experiencing "worrisome increases."RELATED: This COVID Vaccine Has the Most Side Effects, Study Says 5 How to Stay Safe No Matter Where You Live So follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered, don't travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

Subway is America's largest fast-food chain by the number of locations, so it's hard to imagine we'll ever see a world without it. But the chain closed more locations than any other rival last year and rumors of a troubled operation and an impending sale are swirling.Subway has shuttered nearly 1,800 domestic locations since the beginning of 2020, with its total number of restaurants decreasing from 23,800 in 2019 to slightly more than 22,000. During that same time period, sales plummeted from $10.2 billion to $8.3 billion. (Related: 7 New Fast-Food Chicken Sandwiches Everyone's Talking About)The chain has also reduced its staff, with some estimating that about 500 employees at the company's headquarters have lost their jobs since early last year. CEO John Chidsey's cost-cutting measures reportedly included moving HQ from Connecticut to Florida, a rumor which Subway has denied. However, the company did relocate a number of its C suite executives, as well as its culinary and marketing teams to Miami last month, according to Business Insider.Chidsey is also rumored to have put a strain on Subway's relationship with its franchisees by ceasing two-way communication and instituting controversial menu changes that hurt profits. As we've previously reported, many were shocked when Subway announced that it was cutting roast beef and rotisserie chicken from its menu last June, a move which some operators strongly disagreed with because the two proteins were popular among customers. At the same time, the company rolled out a "$5 Footlongs When You Buy Two" deal, which saw a major pushback from operators who said it would lose too much money. (The former decision was recently reversed.)The company's moves may be indicative of an intent to sell to a private equity firm, according to experts. And there are already two likely buyers, according to Business Insider. Both Restaurant Brands International (the parent company of Burger King, Popeyes, and Tim Hortons) and Inspire (which owns Arby's and Sonic, among others) have looked into purchasing Subway over the past year. Eat This, Not That! has reached out to Subway for comment, but the chain hasn't responded so far.For more drama at Subway, check out New Lawsuit Alleges Subway's Tuna Contains "Absolutely No Tuna."

Social stress combined with job strain may significantly raise a woman's risk of developing coronary heart disease, a new study suggests. According to research published this week in the Journal of the American Heart Association, experiencing job strain—which occurs when a woman has inadequate power in the workplace to respond to the job's demands and expectations—along with social strain is associated with a 21% higher risk of developing coronary heart disease (CHD). Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise.Women Who Reported High-Stress Life Events Had a 12% Higher Risk of Coronary Heart DiseaseFor the new study, researchers at Drexel University evaluated the effect of psychosocial stress on 80,825 postmenopausal women who were tracked by the Women's Health Initiative Observational Study from 1991 to 2015. The participants reported their stress levels and sources on questionnaires.The scientists found that 4.8% of the women developed coronary heart disease during the 14-year study. After adjusting for age, other stressors, job tenure, and socioeconomic factors, they determined that women who reported high-stress life events had a 12% higher risk of CHD, and high social strain was associated with a 9% increased risk. RELATED: The Easiest Way to Avoid a Heart Attack, Say DoctorsTo measure social strain, defined as the "negative aspect of social relations," study participants were asked about "the number of people who get on their nerves, who ask too much of them, who exclude them, and who try to coerce them in their current life."Job strain was not by itself associated with CHD risk, but the researchers found a "significant association" between job strain and social strain, determining that women who reported both had a 21% higher risk of CHD."Psychosocial stress typically occurs when people have difficulty in coping with challenging environmental conditions and can lead to dysregulation of homeostasis that may result in illness," the researchers wrote. "Recently, several large research studies identified that psychosocial stress from different domains of life (eg, finance, work, and relationships) may play a role in the development of coronary heart disease (CHD)."RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" CancersCould COVID Stress Impact Women's Heart Health?"The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted ongoing stresses for women in balancing paid work and social stressors," said study senior author Yvonne Michael, ScD, SM, an associate professor in the Dornsife School of Public Health. "We know from other studies that work strain may play a role in developing CHD, but now we can better pinpoint the combined impact of stress at work and at home on these poor health outcomes."She added: "My hope is that these findings are a call for better methods of monitoring stress in the workplace and remind us of the dual-burden working women face as a result of their unpaid work as caregivers at home.""Our findings are a critical reminder to women, and those who care about them, that the threat of stress to human health should not go ignored," said the study's lead author, Conglong Wang, Ph.D. "This is particularly pertinent during the stressors caused by a pandemic."

"The key to treating dementia is prevention," says Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent and a practicing neurosurgeon, in his new book Stay Sharp: Build a Better Brain at Any Age. Gupta notes that brain changes that result in dementia have been found to begin 20 to 30 years before a diagnosis, making prevention an urgent and worthy goal. "And it just so happens that the same things you can do to reduce your risk for the disease are what you can do to improve your quality of life as you live with the disease," he adds. These are five ways you can start preventing dementia now and live a better life today. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise. 1 Exercise This is the most important thing you can do to keep your brain healthy, says Gupta. "Exercise, both aerobic and nonaerobic (strength training), is not only good for the body; it's even better for the brain," he writes in Keep Sharp. "The connection between physical fitness and brain fitness is clear, direct, and powerful." He recommends regular movement, whether that's taking the stairs instead of the elevator or strenuous exercise. If you exercise regularly, Gupta suggests mixing up your routine. 2 Stay Social "Social interaction is one of the big predictors of neurogenesis," or creation of new brain cells, which prevents dementia, said Gupta in the South China Morning Post. "Social interaction is near the top of the list when it comes to making new brain cells. Connecting with others has been known to be important for a long time. But we now know that it leads to the release of certain hormones like oxytocin, which foster neurogenesis." 3 Get Quality Sleep "There is a rinse cycle that happens in your brain when you sleep," said Gupta. "You are basically clearing out metabolic waste. That happens when you are awake, but the process is close to 60 percent more efficient when you are asleep. You're clearing out plaque and tangles, and all the things that lead to dementia. You're helping the brain run more smoothly." How much sleep do you need? "Seven to nine hours, if you can do it," Gupta told Terry Gross on NPR's "Fresh Air." "If you're dreaming in the morning right before you wake up, that's a pretty good sign. That probably means that you've spent a fair amount of your evening, your night, consolidating memories and going through the rinse cycle." 4 Eat Well In the book, Gupta says what's "good for the heart is good for the brain" and that "clean living can slash your risk of developing a serious mind-destroying disorder, including Alzheimer's disease, even if you carry genetic risk factors." He advocates a heart-healthy diet that includes plenty of omega-3 fatty acids from natural sources, small portions, little sugar, and plenty of water. Sanjay says he personally eats very little meat and less overall throughout the day—breakfast "like a king," lunch "like a prince" and dinner "like a pauper."RELATED: This COVID Vaccine Has the Most Side Effects, Study Says 5 Try New Things Doing new things is literally exercise for the brain. Gupta recommends reading a book that's outside of your usual interests; taking a class in cooking, art or continuing education; joining a writing group; or learning a new language. And to stay healthy generally, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
