Differences in U. Worry is driven by mood, not logic. Since mitochondria are the cells' powerhouse, multicellular organisms cannot develop without at least not as far as we know. Oxford University Press. World Report on Violence and Health. Europe is the most suicidal region in the world, while the Eastern Mediterranean is the least. All the evidence points to a common ancestor of all eukaryotic cells. Is there a way to extend our lifespans? Fourth, the results are based on data from 32 states and are therefore not nationally representative. I enjoyed Nick Lane's dry wit and his passionate attitude to all things mitochondria and biology in general, of course. This line of reasoning is then extended to argue that since this event is so rare and dependent on a number of steps one following the other, each of which are equally rare, the chances of complex life evolving anywhere else in the universe is next to zero. Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology. Fermentation is too complex and photosynthesis came too late so respiration was the key to getting things started. The common denominator in all these countries, however, is the higher rate of male suicides except perhaps China. A non-prosecution agreement allowed Epstein, a hedge-fund manager, to plead guilty to two state charges and avoid federal charges for an allegedly broad pattern of similar sexual misconduct.

They are far more ancient than eukaryotes which probably date back 2 billion years. They have not evolved into complex organisms through natural selection because their energy production is insufficient. So on earth the first variety dominated and culled any new competition and this is the reason why another eukaryote never evolved. This is surely true enough but not really incompatible with Durkheim.
Stone, ScD 1 View author affiliations. Suicide among the U. National Violent Death Reporting System data from 32 states were used to calculate suicide rates for major industry and occupational groups and detailed occupational groups. Five industry groups and six major occupational groups had higher suicide rates than did the overall study population. Suicide rates for detailed occupational groups provide insight into subcategories within major groups. Opportunities exist for targeted and broadscale prevention. Rates were also significantly higher in six major occupational groups: 1 Construction and Extraction males and females ; 2 Installation, Maintenance, and Repair males ; 3 Arts, Design, Entertainment, Sports, and Media males ; 4 Transportation and Material Moving males and females ; 5 Protective Service females ; and 6 Healthcare Support females. Rates for detailed occupational groups e. Suicide rates were analyzed for industry and occupational groups by sex. Rates were calculated by U. The following decedents were excluded from rate calculations: military workers ; unpaid workers 2, ; those whose other NVDRS data sources e. Treating the population rate as a constant is reasonable when variance is small and is required for one-sample inference that recognizes the nonindependence of individual industry and occupation groups relative to the study population. The five major industry groups with suicide rates higher than the study population by sex included 1 Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction males: The six major occupational groups with higher rates included 1 Construction and Extraction males: Some occupational groups with suicide rates significantly higher than those of the study population were only identifiable through observation at the detailed group level Table 2. Among males, these detailed groups included the following seven groups: 1 Fishing and hunting workers part of the Farming, Fishing, and Forestry major occupational group ; 2 Machinists Production major group ; 3 Welding, soldering, and brazing workers Production major group ; 4 Chefs and head cooks Food Preparation and Serving Related major group ; 5 Construction managers Management major group ; 6 Farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers Management major group ; and 7 Retail salespersons Sales and Related major group.

Groups with highest rate point estimates e. This report used data from 32 states to provide updated population-level suicide rates for major occupational groups and new information on suicide rates for major industry groups and detailed occupational groups. Estimates for most major occupational groups are similar, although not directly comparable, to previous estimates that were based on NVDRS data from 17 states 4. Recent NVDRS expansion to 50 states might facilitate direct comparisons over time by industry and occupation nationwide. These findings highlight opportunities for targeted prevention strategies and further investigation of work-related factors that might increase risk of suicide. Previous research indicates suicide risk is associated with low-skilled work 5 , lower education 6 , lower absolute and relative socioeconomic status 7 , work-related access to lethal means 8 , and job stress, including poor supervisory and colleague support, low job control, and job insecurity 9. Industry, labor, and professional associations, as well as employers, and state and local health departments can use this information to focus attention and resources on suicide prevention. Future research might examine these and other risk factors among the industries and occupations identified in this report as having high suicide rates. Although relative comparisons of suicide rates in this manner are useful for prevention purposes, these results should not overshadow the essential fact that the suicide rate in the U. Therefore, all industry sectors and occupational groups can contribute to reducing suicide incidence. The findings in this report are subject to at least five limitations. First, this study did not address confounding factors that might account for different suicide rates among and within industry or occupational groups. Fourth, the results are based on data from 32 states and are therefore not nationally representative. Other limitations of NVDRS analysis using death certificate industry and occupation data have been described previously 4. All industries and occupations can benefit from a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention. Workplace-specific strategies include 1 promoting help-seeking; 2 integrating workplace safety and health and wellness programs to advance the overall well-being of workers; 3 referring workers to financial and other helping services; 4 facilitating time off and benefits to cover supportive services; 5 training personnel to detect and appropriately respond to suicide risk; 6 creating opportunities for employee social connectedness; 7 reducing access to lethal means among persons at risk; and 8 creating a crisis response plan sensitive to the needs of coworkers, friends, family, and others who might themselves be at risk 1 , Other community-based strategies include strengthening economic supports, strengthening access and delivery of care, teaching coping and problem-solving skills, and responsibly reporting suicide e.

Essential Reads. The combination eventually evolved into eukaryotes cells with nucleus. Lane packs a lot of science into this excellent presentation of the origin and functioning of mitochondria. The Meaning of Life: Somewhere in the book Lane quotes someone that a lot of times answering the how question helps with the why question too. It is fairly steady for women, and low, throughout their longer lives. Also, age-adjusted rates are mortality rates that would have existed if all populations under study had the same age distribution as a "standard" population. Big birds, for example, live astonishingly long and healthy lives for their metabolic rate. Zayas; Gordon C. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Retrieved 6 October His alleged crimes were thrown back into the spotlight amid renewed scrutiny of the plea deal Epstein reached with the U. Finland more. How did they evolve? Based on the most recent Youth Risk Behaviors Survey from , 8. A side affect of cell respiration, combined with cell suicide, is probably the cause of aging and age related illness. And unfortunately, in the instances where the attempt leads to a fatality, the wreckage is multifold. In most countries, the majority of completed suicides are made by men but, in China, women are slightly more likely to die by suicide than men.

It is because the survival of such a chimera is statistically unlikely in a world already populated by other such eukaryotes capable of competing more effectively with a new eukaryote. They have not evolved into complex organisms through natural selection because their energy production is insufficient.

If it weren't for mitochondria, scientists argue, we'd all still be single-celled bacteria. Indeed, these tiny structures inside our cells are important beyond imagining. Without mitochondria, we would have no cell suicide, no sculpting of embryonic shape, no sexes, no menopause, no aging. In this fascinating and thought-provoking book, Nick Lane brings together the latest If it weren't for mitochondria, scientists argue, we'd all still be single-celled bacteria. In this fascinating and thought-provoking book, Nick Lane brings together the latest research in this exciting field to show how our growing insight into mitochondria has shed light on how complex life evolved, why sex arose why don't we just bud? These findings are of fundamental importance, both in understanding life on Earth, but also in controlling our own illnesses, and delaying our degeneration and death. Readers learn that two billion years ago, mitochondria were probably bacteria living independent lives and that their capture within larger cells was a turning point in the evolution of life, enabling the development of complex organisms. Lane describes how mitochondria have their own DNA and that its genes mutate much faster than those in the nucleus. This high mutation rate lies behind our aging and certain congenital diseases. The latest research suggests that mitochondria play a key role in degenerative diseases such as cancer. We also discover that mitochondrial DNA is passed down almost exclusively via the female line. That's why it has been used by some researchers to trace human ancestry daughter-to-mother, to "Mitochondrial Eve," giving us vital information about our evolutionary history.

In the end It does not quiet explain the meaning of life in the traditional terms but does put forward a very strong argument that life as we know it today owes a lot to those little symbiotes that inhabit every single cell in us. Yes, mitochondria has moulded and given direction to life on earth - from the first eukaryotic cell to the complex animals and finally to us. Written in a lucid and conversational style, the book makes for very easy reading and even the hard concepts are put across in simple and sometimes quite entertaining style. The strength of the book is in how well planned and tied together it feels. The author knows which questions to ask when so as to lead us to the overall picture and he also knows how to deftly lead us on wrong routes so that when the real theory is revealed it has the whiff of truth to it and the pleasure of solving a detective puzzle.
