Kathleen Miller, an energy-drink specialist from the University at Buffalo Research Institute on Addictions said, "Caffeine can be a great thing, at low doses; with the consumption of five 5-hour Energy drinks, however, you move past alert and awake, into the territory of jittery, anxious and heart palpitations." Caffeine doses higher than 5000 mg can lead to seizures, hallucinations and strokes.
The major component named epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) in green tea inhibits myeloperoxidase enzymes released by white blood cells during inflammatory bowel disease outbursts. But when green tea was consumed with iron, EGCG bound with the iron and the ability to inhibit myeloperoxidase was lost.
Hair dye poisoning is one of the major causes of self-injury. Chemical hair dye, especially paraphenylene-diamine can lead to edemas, rhabdomyolysis, acute metabolic acidosis and renal failure. Scientists from the University of Leeds have extracted natural dyes from blackcurrant waste, generated throughout Ribena blackcurrant production. This natural black dye with zero side effects could be used in fresh new hair dyeing technologies.
Professor James, the lead researcher said, “These gloves will be a game-changer for the healthcare industry, both public and private. I am delighted that my lifetime’s research into bacteria and antibiotic resistance has directly informed the science behind a practical tool that will have a major impact on medical care in the future.”
Three of the company’s prototype genome-sequencing assays were evaluated using samples from lung cancer patients. Early support for the concept was demonstrated with detection rates ranging from 38% to 51% in participants in participants with early-stage lung cancer at 98% specificity.
No specific cause has been identified yet. It could be poor ventilation, smoking, pollution and chemical contaminants such as paint, varnish, adhesives etc. Stress is also thought to be a leading cause of sick building syndrome. Usually, women are more susceptible to the condition than men.
In the cases of severely injured patients with excessive bleeding, the need of the hour would be a blood transfusion. But if older stored blood were to be used, it could lead to life-threatening symptoms such as pneumonia, dysfunction in blood flow, and an increased inflammation in organs. The research team found a link between older stored blood transfusion and subsequent bacterial pneumonia.
A study conducted in ten hospitals found that NIPT (Non-Invasive Prenatal Screening Test), was safer, more accurate and more effective in detecting chromosomal abnormalities in unborns, compared to conventional marker tests and ultrasound studies.
With dyslexic patients, the light receptor cells (rods and cones) were arranged in matching forms in the center of each eye. In non-dyslexic patients, the receptor cells do not match, leading to a single image. The matching cells confuse the brain, by forming a mirror image in the opposite hemisphere. A slight delay between the brain producing a primary image and the other hemisphere’s mirror image was noticed.
For Mental Health Month, (HABRI) - The Human Animal Bond Research Institute summarized the recent scientific research on the mental health benefits of the human-animal bonds to raise awareness for people who may benefit from animal companionship therapy. HABRI is a non-profit organization that funds research into the health interest of human-animal interaction. A recent study has uncovered new benefits for stress, depression, post-traumatic stress and for managing mental health.
