Reduce Stress Short-Term Memory

Short-term stress lasting only a few hours can impair brain cell communication in some areas associated with learning and memory abilities. As stated by researchers from the University of California.

Severe stress lasting weeks or months can impair cell communication in the area of ​​learning and memory in the brain, but tersebit studies provide the first evidence that short-term stress has the same effect. The study published in the Journal of Neurosicence.

Stress continues to happen in our lives and can not be circumvented. Therefore, the research team found the results of their findings play an important role in drug development and offer insight into why some people forget or have difficulty retaining information during stressful situations. They found that instead of involving hormones are known to cause stress, cortisol, which flows throughout the body, acute stress actually activate certain molecules called corticotropin releasing hormones (CRH) – that interfere with how the brain collects and stores memories.

The researchers found that blocking the interaction of molecules with the CRH receptor molecules eliminating stress damage to areas involved with learning and memory. The research team revealed that a collection is formed showing the ability to block CRH receptors, and that research can play a role in the formation of the collection based therapy to deal with the loss of learning and memory associated with stress.

Ingredients to Make Addiction

Some of the food turned out to contain ingredients that can make people addicted. Without realizing it, a number of favorite foods contain ingredients that make the opiate addictive.

While the disease is not contagious illness patients. It is generally caused by: congenital / descent, birth defects due to processing errors, the impact of drug use or consumption of various foods and beverages including smoking, stress conditions that lead to psychiatric disorders.

Stomach ulcers can also appear with a combination of associated abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, mild colds, cough-cough. Continue reading “Beware of Dengue Fever”

Threat alert Cholesterol Evil

Cholesterol is a lipid found in the bloodstream or in the cell body, which is needed for the formation of the cell wall and as a raw material of some hormones, but if excessive blood cholesterol levels, will lead to coronary heart disease and stroke.

Cholesterol is actually formed naturally by the human body, and beyond that the rest may be obtained from animal foods, such as meat, poultry, fish, margarine, cheese and milk. Food comes from plants that produce vegetable fats do not contain cholesterol, such as fruits, vegetables, and some grains.

Fried Consumption with Plastic Contain Oil

Allegedly there are a handful of fried rogue traders who use chemicals are mixed with the amount of cooking oil which can not be accounted for. Plastics are typically used to wrap, mixed into the oil merchant gorengannya. Which is usually a clear plastic wrapper come put cooking oil in a frying pan along with the main ingredients of fried, all heated together until molten plastic raw materials and fried foods are fried.

The result, fried into crisp, durable, and savory. Traders who fry with this recipe claimed to have consumers more since implementing this technique. Fried foods may be more hard sell for crisp and savory.

In general, plastics are divided into two types of thermoset and thermoplastic. Thermoset when heated a chemical change will occur and the molecules can not be reshaped, so that can not be recycled. While thermoplastics can be heated and molded, repetitive or in other words can be recycled. Plastic bag, plastic packaging made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and food packaging â € ~ styrofoamâ € ™ risky to release chemicals that can be harmful to health. Styrene monomer which can react not come apart when in contact with hot oil or oily food / fat / alcohol in hot conditions. Even if a small residue does not pose a hazard, if dumped constantly, these compounds can lead to various diseases. As said researchers from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Indonesia, dr. Ani Retno, fried berplastik consumed in a very long time because it contains a potentially cancer-causing substances karsiogenik. Continue reading “Fried Consumption with Plastic Contain Oil”

Five Food Migraine

One type of headache that many complaints are headaches or migraines. Migraine headache attack was more torturous and sometimes come unexpectedly. Migraine sufferers will feel the pain and throbbing like a beaten and pulled and is usually accompanied by gastrointestinal disturbances such as nausea and vomiting. Sufferers also tend to be more sensitive to light, sounds and smells. It was certainly very annoying and can hamper the activities of the patient.
The word migraine comes from the Greek hemicrania (hemi = half, cranium = skull head). Migraine headache attacks can occur several times a year to several times a week, with attacks usually 1-2 hours long. Migraines or headaches may not be known with certainty the cause. However, the expected type of headache is due to hyperactivity brain electrical impulses that increase blood flow in the brain resulting in brain blood vessel dilation and inflammation (inflammation of the wound).

Professor Richard B. Lipton, a senior researcher of The Saul R. Korey Department of Neurology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Yeshiva University, said that migraine is a health disorder that can affect quality of life. Throbbing pain on one side of the head can increase the risk of heart attacks doubled, also other cardiovascular diseases such as stroke and high blood pressure.

Before giving up drinking chemical drugs, try to correct migraine with the following food consumption, as quoted Shine.

Children are less likely to bring disease Hemophilia

Hemophilia is a genetic disorder of the blood caused by a deficiency of blood clotting factors. Hemophilia A occurs if there is an abnormality in the gene that causes a lack of clotting factor VIII (FVII). Meanwhile, hemophilia B is caused lack of clotting factor IX (FIX). Hemophilia A and B can not be distinguished because they have a similar clinical appearance and a similar pattern of gene inheritance. The disease is not a contagious disease, but is for life or difficult to cure.

Physical abnormalities depending on the bleeding is going to be a hematoma in the head or extrinitis. and also frequently encountered hemartrasi. Of course there will be a feeling of hematoma area of ​​pain. Rare gangrene. Bleeding will interstial menyebabk muscle atrophy, movement will be disrupted, and sometimes causes peripheral neuritis.

There are two types of hemophilia:
– Type A or classic hemophilia, occurs due to deficiency of blood clotting factor VIII
– Type B occurs due to deficiency of factor IX. These factors are proteins in the blood that cause problems in the process of blood clotting.

Hemophilia arguably occurred due to mutations in the gene that produces Factor VIII and IX. And, this gene mutation occurs on the X chromosome Continue reading “Children are less likely to bring disease Hemophilia”
