Can Coffee Really Protect the Heart? /can-coffee-really-protect-the-heart.html /can-coffee-really-protect-the-heart.html#comments Thu, 28 Jun 2012 07:06:06 +0000 qhiqy /?p=1978

Coffee has long been touted as a healthy drink that have an effect. However, many people still hesitate to drink it black. A recent study attempted to answer these doubts. They expressed a moderate amount of coffee per day may protect against heart failure.

“We found that moderate amounts of coffee consumption in fact be protective,” said Elizabeth Mostofsky, the leader of the study and researcher at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. The study was published on 26 June 2012 in the journal Circulation failure.

“There are many factors that can contribute to the risk of heart failure, but moderate amounts of coffee consumption is not one of them,” he added.

Heart failure is a condition where the heart of the difficulty pumping enough blood throughout the body. Penyebanya could be due to hypertension or coronary heart disease. According to data from the National Institutes of Health, approximately five million people in the United States have heart failure and the disease accounts for 300,000 deaths per year.

The researchers concluded that about 8-caffeine coffee per day (equivalent to four servings of coffee in the Northern Europeans) heart failure may occur, increasing the risk of the disease to 11 percent.

Instead, drink too much coffee – more than four or five cups of coffee per day – can actually reduce the risk of heart problems.

In kajiaannya, researchers reviewed five studies of coffee consumption and risk of heart failure associated published between 2001 and 2011. The study included 140 220 volunteers in Sweden and Finland. Nearly 6522 volunteers including heart failure.

This study did not distinguish between caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee, caffeinated coffee, but tend to be the second choice in the Nordic countries.

Several previous studies have shown that coffee consumption may protect against several diseases, including type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, liver cancer and cirrhosis of the liver, it may even improve performance during exercise.

While health experts still warn that pregnant women consume no coffee, because they tend to have problems in controlling blood pressure, blood sugar, or heart palpitations (irregular heartbeats) to have.

Investigators said he did not fully understand how coffee has a protective effect against cardiovascular disease has. Mostofsky said, people who regularly drink coffee usually a tolerance for caffeine in coffee, which means they tend not to feel the effects to develop. It can make them at a reduced risk of high blood pressure. In addition, the antioxidants in the coffee cells, assumed to be damaged.

Yet not all medical experts agree with the results of the study. “The evidence is not strong enough to recommend that people drink coffee to protect themselves,” said Dr. Arthur Klatsky of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Oakland, California, who was not involved in this study.

Klatsky, who has done research on the relationship between heart rate and coffee, said coffee drinking is a lifestyle factor. “Maybe people who drink coffee tend to exercise more and have better diets,” he said.

But, he said, “People should not feel the need to avoid coffee as they risk failure to feel.”

Many studies have shown smoking can shorten the person’s age and life expectancy.The good news however is never too late to quit smoking. Even if you are late to quit smoking, but can help reduce the risk of death prematura.Expertos German Centre for Cancer Research in Heidelberg analyzed data from 17 previous studies conducted in seven countries (Australia, China, Britain, Japan, France, Spain and U.S.), published between 1987 and 2011.
These study participants were developments in the different period of 3 to 50 years. The analysis results showed that those who smoked risk of 83 percent more likely to die from any cause during the study period that individuals do not fumadores.Mientras thus the risk, former smokers 34 percent more likely to die than those who have never smoked. Although there is no increased risk, but at least it is still well below those who still smoke. “Quitting smoking is essential to improve the quality of life, and who have benefited every time you did – but the sooner the better”said Dr. Michael Niederman, the head of the department of medicine at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, New York, who was not involved in this estudio.El study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine on June 11, 2012, found that survival seems to increase as the amount of time from when a person stops smoking, even at ages avanzadas.Otros experts said that although the results were “not surprising,” there are lessons to be learned from these data.
“In my experience, people who have smoked for decades are less willing to stop and do not usually have the support of providers of health care,” said Patricia Folan, director of Snuff Control System in NorthHealth Shore-LIJ in Great Neck, NY “There seems to be the assumption that if they (smokers) have been smoking for so long – until the age of 60, 70, 80 -. They do notmust stop, “dijo.Sin But Folan said, data from recent studies show otherwise. ”These findings may add value to older smokers quit and encourage health care providers to target groups of older smokers to quit,” says Folan.Dr. Tai Hing Lam, head of the department of community medicine at the University of Hong Kong, said that most smokers underestimate the risks of smoking itself. Many older smokers have misunderstood and thought they were too old to quit smoking or too old to benefit from quitting. ”It takes a simple warning, straight, strong and based on the evidence,” he said.

5 The act strange It Beneficial to Health /5-the-act-strange-it-beneficial-to-health.html /5-the-act-strange-it-beneficial-to-health.html#comments Fri, 11 May 2012 17:21:45 +0000 qhiqy /?p=1823

Perhaps you’ve heard the use of leeches as wound healing or disease on modern health technologies. Or other strange things.Here are five things at once is unusual only beneficial to your health, at least according to Christopher Wanjek, author of Bad Medicine and Food at work.

1. Vibration Exercise
This exercise was initially considered a myth. However, the opposite has been a lot of exercise equipment that uses vibrations in the training system. Induced vibration is supposed to increase your mobility in the movement. Machine vibration can speed healing of muscle and bone density in patients with osteoporosis. The downside, no studies that address the levels of vibration and how long a safe practice.

2. Running in bare feet
Maybe this time a strange thing, if you run or jog barefoot. However, running with bare feet is very beneficial to the shins, knees, hips and back. A study published in Nature (2010), running shoes that appear in the 60′s can change the posture and the way humans walk.

3. Tongue cleaning
Dirt scrape on ritual language has been executed since time immemorial by the Indians they called Ayurveda. This is rarely done because you will feel a choking, pain, or disgust felt a bad smell.However, dozens of studies conducted in Western proves this is the most effective way to deal with bad breath, prevent cavities, gum disease, and even the common cold.

4. Healing with the use of parasitic
For those of you who have symptoms of allergy or asthma are usually more frequent use of eye drops, pills, or inhalants. However, researchers gave the idea of ​​healing with the use of something that could be seen as dirty and disgusting. They said the protection of a particular type of parasitic infection (hookworm) can cure allergies or Crohn’s disease and multiple sclerosis.

5. Fecal transplantation
This may seem very strange. On a stool or a transplant procedure is also referred to transplant the fecal flora (FMT), the doctor injects the feces of healthy people in the intestine of a patient by a tube-like instrument. This treatment is effective for patients with Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), an infection causing severe diarrhea or other illness-causing bacteria-induced diarrhea. Prosedut FMT also known as bacteriotherapy, fecal transplant, fecal transfusion, or human probiotic infusion (HPI), by transferring bekteri “healthy” with probiotics in the gut.

FMT, in principle, is an effort to restore the colony flora by the introduction of health flora bacteria through an infusion or injection of faeces from a healthy donor. This procedure can also treat other diseases such as colitis, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and certain neurological diseases.

Not Proven, HP Trigger Cancer Radiation /not-proven-hp-trigger-cancer-radiation.html /not-proven-hp-trigger-cancer-radiation.html#comments Fri, 27 Apr 2012 07:40:57 +0000 qhiqy /?p=1797

The use of cell phones or cell phones these days are often associated with impaired health problems like cancer. However, studies in Britain have recently pointed out that there was no convincing evidence linking cell phone use and cancer.

The scientists who carried out an overview of various studies that have been published previously found that “there is no indication of a risk” to public health from exposure to radio waves from mobile phones. Research conducted by an organization in England called the Independent Advisory Group on Non-Ionizing Radiation (AGNIR), which are sheltered under the Health Protection Agency (HPA).

Professor Anthony Swerdlow, AGNIR president, said, “there is no convincing evidence that RF exposure to cause health problems in adults or children. But to know the risks of using mobile phones over 15 years is still unknown, because we have little information or even nothing at all. ”

Anthony said at least one information on the risks of radiation exposure from cell phone beyond 15 years because most people do not use the phone until the 1990s.

Investigators also said there was no evidence that exposure causes brain tumors, other types of cancer, or fertility or harm heart health.

“Monitoring should be done because little information is known about the long-term effects,” added Anthony.

Recommendations for children

Although the HPA said that children should still avoid excessive use of cell phones.HPA will continue to provide advice in the form of prevention, an approach particularly in children.

The experts explained, need further research to determine the effect of RF fields on brain activity and a possible association with behavioral problems in children. The researchers also call for further investigation focused on the use of new technologies that emit radio frequencies: as a wireless signal from the transmitter in the houses and airport security scanners.

HPA confirmed not change its recommendation on the use of mobile phones on children.

“As this is a relatively new technology, the HPA will continue to recommend a cautious approach,” said Dr. John Cooper, director of the HPA.

“The HPA recommends that the excessive use of mobile phones by children should be limited,” he concluded.

Important to get a good rest to make sure your immune system to function properly. When you sleep, the body is able to restore and refuel, including the immune system. If you limit the amount of sleep constantly, you have put yourself at greater risk of infection and serious medical conditions like heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes and obesity.

4. Less training

Not having enough time berolaharaga can weaken the immune system and increase the risk of disease or infection. Research has shown that regular physical activity may help stimulate the immune system by increasing the number of white cells in the body to help combat all forms of the disease.

Men More Forgetful Risk /men-more-forgetful-risk.html /men-more-forgetful-risk.html#comments Tue, 13 Mar 2012 04:37:08 +0000 qhiqy /?p=1660

As we age, the memory function of the human brain in general, be reduced. State was right. But the real question is, if the memory loss in the brains of men and women equal?

The answer was no! Recent research reveals that men have an increased risk of memory loss than women. The study was published in the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

In the study, researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, United States to observe the state of the brain of parents who have mild cognitive impairment (MCI / MCI) – a type of memory disorder that became early signs of dementia (senile).

Dr. R.O. Roberts, principal investigator, who is also a member of the American Academy of Neurology describes research on the participation of as many as people aged 70-89 years 1450. Participants were followed for three years to give an accurate diagnosis. At the start of the 2004 study, researchers found no patient who was diagnosed with dementia. For three years, participants underwent tests of memory and evaluated every 15 months.

At the end of the test period, it is known that at least 296 participants experienced mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The incidence of these cases showed an increase in the group of men from 72 to 1,000 people. While the woman about 57 of every 1,000 people.

Another interesting finding of this study is that there are big differences between men and women 70-74 years related to the development of mild cognitive impairment. But in the older age groups, by 85-89 years) the difference in MCI cases virtually nonexistent.

“The fact that we see that men are at higher risk of mild cognitive impairment at a younger age than women,” Roberts said.

“It is important to overcome or prevent a risk factor for mild cognitive impairment at an early age, as when a person 20 years or 30 years,” added

With the discovery of differences in the risk of mild cognitive impairment in men and women, Roberts said it was important to consider the risk factors independently associated mainly gender.

Here’s How it Works Turmeric Prevents senile /heres-how-it-works-turmeric-prevents-senile.html /heres-how-it-works-turmeric-prevents-senile.html#comments Sat, 10 Mar 2012 03:50:39 +0000 qhiqy /?p=1649

The presence of turmeric as a base material for the manufacture of foods such as curry, is known. But are you aware that turmeric also kept hidden benefits, especially in preventing the disease or senile dementia?

Yes, recent research indicates that eating curry regularly can reduce the risk of developing health problems associated with aging such as dementia.

Experts from the University of Linköping, Sweden, suggested, put the curry on the menu of the day as much as once or twice a week is enough to reduce the likelihood of someone suffering from dementia in old age. The researchers argue, the high content of curcumin in turmeric plays a very important and is the main agent that prevents the onset of dementia.

In their research, scientists in Sweden conducted a series of scientific experiments and testing of the potential benefits of curcumin in fruit flies. The results were very surprising, since the flies that received curcumin some of constantly having a longer life (75 percent) than flies that did not receive curcumin treatment.

These findings were published in February in the journal PLoS ONE. The researchers said the findings, as well as a scientific explanation of why the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia are very rare in some Asian countries.

How it works

Scientists emphasize that curcumin could not break the formation of amyloid plaques – protein in the brain that destroy nerve cells – which play an important role in accelerating the development of nerve fibers. Compound in turmeric is also believed that experts can reduce the formation of oligomers of medium size, the molecules that form in the nerve fibers that are harmful to nerve cells.

Professor Per Hammarstrom, a leader of the study, said the fact that there are a number of theories that explain how the oligomer so that it can lead to degenerative processes in the brain. One, for example, oligomers trapped in the stimulation of the nerve fibers and damage the signal coming from the brain.

Consequently, the stimulus signal to be blocked, and that is where curcumin works to improve the process. Hammarstrom said that there are many health benefits of curcumin include the increasing role of the digestive system, reduces the risk of cardiovascular problems such as heart attack and stroke, as well as natural painkillers.
