weight from the diet is not affected?

weight from the diet is not affected?It is believed that a diet rich in saturated fats and does not contain fiber, is one of the most dangerous risk factors for atherosclerosis and other diseases of the cardiovascular system. But, it turns out that these views are not quite correspond to reality. As shown by studies conducted by scientists from the famous American Mayo clinic, people who eat fatty foods, is actually not always suffer from overweight and obesity. Moreover, in the course of the study, the researchers showed that such a diet can lead to weight reduction. While indicators such as blood levels of cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (which is the main diagnostic criteria of atherosclerosis) are virtually unchanged. AskDoctor.ru.

Radon contained in the air is not dangerous

Radon contained in the air is not dangerousRadon contained in the air is not dangerous A few years ago the media had a lot of messages about the dangers of radon contained in various building materials. Scientists and doctors believed that the high concentration in the room air, this gas, which includes radioactive isotopes, can trigger the development of cancerous tumors. Fortunately, these fears were confirmed. This is the conclusion of scientists who have studied the radon content of nearly 6000 homes. The research assistants measured the concentration of radon in the air of houses and apartments, in which lived 3773 healthy child and 2226 children with certain malignant tumors. To improve the accuracy of the obtained data, they are not simply compared the results for these two groups among themselves, but with the help of special statistical methods exclude the impact of all factors causing the development of cancer.

Patients with diabetes will be doing a special tattoo

Patients with diabetes will be doing a special tattooPatients with diabetes will be doing a special tattoo Scientists Takasago University sovmestnoe with Penn State Chemical Engineering has developed a "smart tattoo", warning patients with diabetes about the fact that they lowered the glucose level. The method is based on the luminescence of molecules, when the glucose level in the body falls below normal. Scientists have already conducted successful tests on rats, which was introduced glucose. Unlike conventional tattoos on the body, the ink particles which are absorbed by the skin cells, "smart tattoo" is injected under the skin, and its special molecules remain mobile. The best place for such tattoos will be hands or abdomen, where they will be protected from the effects of sunlight, say the developers. According to the researchers, when the method will be improved, diabetics can control the level of glucose, receiving testimony glow on a special watch. Читать полностью -->

Scientists have discovered how malaria can trick the immune system

Scientists have discovered how malaria can trick the immune systemAustralian scientists from the Medical Institute Howard Hughes was able to identify the genetic mechanisms by which the pathogen of malaria manages to trick the immune system of the human body. How did you find the researchers, the causative agent of the most deadly forms of malaria plasmodium falciparum possesses several dozen genes that produce a specific protein markers found on the cell membranes of parasites. Most of the cells in plasmodium falciparum supplied with protein-markers of the same type, however, the human immune system can learn to recognize and destroy foreign markers along with their owners. At the same time a small part of the cells, parasites places on their cell membranes proteins are markers of other types, and always remains inaccessible to the immune response of the body. After the destruction of immune cells and antibodies dominant type of malarial plasmodia, the total population of pathogenic cells is quickly restored. A new generation of parasites is dominated by cells with markers of a different type, against which require a new immune response. Читать полностью -->

Students will hide from the sun

Students will hide from the sunStudents will hide from the sun Prolonged sun exposure is the main risk factor for melanoma. According to experts of the Center for disease control USA, the possibility of tumor development increases when people in childhood often got sunburn. Experts of the Centre have developed a new guide for educational institutions with the aim of reducing the risk of developing melanoma. The manual instructs schools to change regulations to limit the stay of children in the sun in the daytime when the sun's rays are most dangerous. Experts also advise to lift the ban on wearing headscarves in school time, which will reduce the risk of developing melanoma on the skin of the head and neck is the most frequent localization of the tumor. Schools were also required to increase the number of tents and trees. Читать полностью -->
