The science of staying young, healthy, and in-shape.
Ever heard of fascia? It happens to be the buzzword in healthcare these days, but it's the newest and least understood system in the body. Research only began about twenty-years ago, and the science is so state-of-the-art that the nomenclature (how they identify it) is still hotly debated.
The blood-brain barrier (BBB) penetrating drugs market is estimated to be worth USD 900 million in 2030, predicts Roots Analysis
Advances in biotechnology have enabled the development of versatile in vitro (static and dynamic), in vivo (micro-dialysis), and in situ (brain perfusion) blood–brain barrier models, allowing more effective and safe delivery of drugs across brain capillaries
Is Lipoma Removal Without Surgery Possible?
The answer to this query is Yes! The ugly Lipoma can now be removed with various non-surgical approaches that are not only safe but are affordable too. We will discuss the different non-surgical lipoma removal procedures in detail later in this post.
COVID-19 Vaccines: Current State of Play
Coronavirus vaccines were among the topics discussed by NIAID Director Anthony Fauci, MD, at his first press conference with the Biden administration.
Introduction To Photobiomodultaion (PBM) and Red Light Therapy (RLT)
I will use the terms photobiomodulation (PBM), Red Light Therapy (RLT), and Photobiology to mean one and the same and the terms will be used interchangeably in the following text.
Nanomachines: The Game Changer in Pervasive Healthcare
Originally published on Hackernoon Biological nanomachines adopt the structure and communication principles of natural biological cells. From a communication engineering perspective, bionanomachines are computational devices that work at a nanoscale to perform simple functionalities like environmental sensing to more complex functionalities like actuation and manipulating the environment (i.e., human body).
How Well Your Kidneys Function
Every wonder how the body flushes out toxins and excess water while filtering the blood? The kidneys are an integral part of the endocrine system, they screen the body for excess toxins, balance the pH, blood pressure, neutralize alcohol and monitor the body's fluid intake and secretion. Waste blood enters through the renal artery and exits as two clean components which include clean filtered blood through the renal vein, and liquid waste that gets transported to the bladder where it can diffuse more to help balance fluids in the bladder through the ureter. The important thing to note here is that the kidneys purify the blood and remove waste by excretion of fluids in a ureic compound that mostly consists of subatomic particles such as the ions known as electrolytes. These diffuse and uptake back into the blood to balance the body’s current condition. There are three pathways blood take before exiting the kidneys. These three pathways include 1) recycled waste blood, 2) clean blood, and 3) urine composed of mostly fluid. Within the kidneys lie capillary crossings of microtubules filled with blood that separate, sort and strain the blood before choosing the directions these mixtures will flow. Within each section lies a Bowman's Capsule that regulates a Glomerulus, and within these are loops of Nephrons that differentiate where everything will go. Here's a roadmap of how everything works: 1) blood with waste enters through the Artery, this blood is cleaned and then blood without waste exits through the vein, liquid urine goes straight to the bladder via the ureter and collecting duct. Arteries contain always filled oxygen-rich bright red blood, arteries carry oxygen-rich blood away from the heart and veins carry oxygen-depleted blood back to the heart. Each kidney contains about one million Nephrons known as tiny filtering centers that clean the blood, these compose the primary function of the kidneys. When the body is neglected renal disease occurs which impairs how well the endocrine systems can perform these tasks. Chronic kidney disease is usually caused by hypertension, high blood pressure, toxic blood from any excess of oxidizing factors which include too much medication, diabetes, high cholesterol and blood toxicity caused by excess electrolytes or alcohol consumption. When these benefactors persist they put a strain on how well the blood is filtered. Some complications include: frequent urination, alcohol poisoning, and acid corrosion caused by too much sugar consumption. The best ways to improve these factors are by eating a clean plant-based diet and limiting stress by incorporating aerobic exercise, in other words diet and exercise cures all, as well as incorporating a daily multivitamin and fish oil supplement. In the case of morbid obesity where adipose tissue is in excess, there is usually a buildup for lack thereof disposal of fat molecules and this is where one can develop fatty kidneys. Think, too much soda and sugar. Malnutrition and poor dietary choices can cause a buildup of unwanted substances known as carcinogens to the body; these include excess preservatives, nitrates, and phosphates, smoking and its substituents, and free radicals usually caused by oxidizing agents in other words alcohol (containing hydroxide). A high protein diet may also cause painful kidney stones that may develop. Kidney stones are relieved through urinary retention medications, narcotics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and/ or all of these including diuretics. The best treatment plan is one that supports lifelong sustainability which will in turn increase life expectancy and decrease the morbidity rate and complications related to renal injuries or kidney disease. Let’s support our healthy system functions by striving towards achieving the best health attainable in order to sustain our optimal health!
The Science of Social Distancing
Origins Since the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak, many guidelines changed. Masks were initially advised against, and then for. Gloves were regarded as an essential accessory by many at first, and later even considered as causing more harm than gain by some experts. Stay at home orders changed to carefully go out. Besides washing our hands and practicing hygiene (always good advice), the only major guideline that survived these past months is social distancing. Seemingly, a simple enough request, but it is a lot more complex than it might seem.
Want to Keep Fit After A Diet? Use Your Poo
Burden with Weight Weight is a heavy issue. 71.6% of Americans are overweight or obese. In the UK, 62% of the population is overweight, the largest in Europe. Conservative estimates attribute 1 in 5 deaths to overweight and obesity. Obesity alone costs $147 billion a year in care and has a $3.38 billion damage to national productivity in the US.
Diagnosis of Down Syndrome by NIPT test in UAE
Down syndrome is a genetic condition which is caused by the abnormal cell division that results in the formation of an extra or partial copy of the chromosome. This genetic disorder inhibits the natural growth process of a human body. Recent studies by the medical experts have stated that couples having stress during the period of conception are more likely to deliver babies with down syndrome. Also hormonal variations during the period of pregnancy can also influence this uneven distribution of chromosome sequences.
New Covid 19 Variant Discovered In UK
A new variant of the Covid 19 virus which seems to spread much faster than the original virus has been detected in the South East of England. Experts who have analysed the new variant have stated that it originated in the UK and was not imported from abroad. This is extremely worrying news for people who live in the UK so close to Christmas and has led to the creation of a new tier 4 threat level which has increased restrictions over the rest of the country.
Why do we believe lies?
If people act on false health information they hear or see, it can impact their health, and if enough people do not follow health guidance, it can prolong this pandemic. Falsehood and dishonesty would destroy anything. No business or quality of life can be achieved with this, it downgrades in all ramifications.
