Nine Benefits That Can Be Obtained From The Activity of Walking.

by on May.27, 2010, under Information Lifestyles

walk(1) Heart Attack.

First of course reduce
the risk of heart attack.
We know that muscle

the heart requires more
blood flow profusely (from coronary artery

who gave her food) in
order to fit and function normally without stopping the blood pumping.
For that, the heart
muscle requires the bloodstream

more rapidly and
Hie walking speed in
coronary blood flow to the heart.
Thus the adequacy of
oxygen the heart muscle and heart muscle are met can stay awake for
quite a beat.

Not only that. Flexibility of the
arteries of trained body

contract and will be
helped by mengejangnya expands the muscles around the walls of blood
vessels while engaged in activities on foot rushed it.
The end result, the blood
pressure tends to be lower, adhesions antarsel blood clots that can
cause blood clots stopper vessels will also be reduced.

Moreover, the good
cholesterol (HDL), which works as a sponge

absorbing the bad
cholesterol (LDL) will increase by foot

hie. Not many ways out of
drugs that can increase HDL levels in addition to the moving body.
Walking hurriedly
recorded can reduce the risk of heart attack to just half.

(2). Stroke.

Despite the benefits of
walking hurriedly towards stroke

not as real influence on
coronary heart disease, some studies have shown satisfactory results.
Just look at the natural
evidence of our ancestors were more engaged in activities on foot every
day, old stroke cases are not as much now.
One study of 70 thousand
nurses (Harvard School of Public Health) that the work was recorded
walking activity as much as 20 hours a week reduced their risk of stroke

(3). Stable weight.

It turned out to
familiarize walking routine, the rate of metabolism

enhanced body. In addition to a number
of calories wasted by activity

walk, the excess calories
that might exist would be burned by

increasing the body's
metabolism, so weight gain is not


(4). Lose weight.

Yes, in addition
maintained a stable weight, those who start

overweight, may be
derived by performing activities

hie walk it regularly. Excess lard in

under the skin will be
burned if diligently engaged in activities on foot

sufficient rate of at
least one hour.

(5). Preventing diabetes.

Yes, to get moving on
foot around 6 miles per hour,

travel time approximately
50 minutes, it can delay or prevent

development of Type 2
diabetes, especially in those who bodied

overweight (National
Institute of Diabetes and Kidney Diseases Gigesive &).

‘SECRET’ Compounds of Perfume Can Ruin Sperm

by on May.27, 2010, under Information Lifestyles

perfumeCologne and perfume many people use to make the body fragrant. But a study shows the materials 'secrets' that can give a special flavor to the cologne it can damage sperm.

Researchers analyzed the chemical composition of 17 types of perfume and cologne. From this study found that many products that use specific ingredients to scent contains compounds that have the potential to interact with the hormone. But the materials are not included in the label.

One of the chemical diethyl phthalates were found in 12 products and associated with damage to the sperm that can reduce fertility someone.

In the Harvard study in 2006 known about the dangers of diethyl phthalate (DEP) on the sperm. It also found that DEP is one of the compounds that can disrupt hormones.

Based on this research, exemplified in Giorgio Armani's Acqua Gio containing seven compounds that can interact with estrogen (female hormones), androgens (male hormones) or both. This research was conducted by a consumer advocacy nonprofit Environmental Working Group.

“We do not know how the dangers of repeated use of cologne or perfume, because the emphasis in this industry who do not test the long term,” said researcher Dr Olga V. Naidenko, as quoted from AOLHealth.

Dr. Naidenko said the use of which is rarely possible to show good results just fine. But because these chemicals contained in many products, there is the possibility from time to time will accumulate and have a bad effect in the body.

This study aimed to determine how many chemicals are in use in cologne, but not listed on the label. Cologne and perfume are tested randomly selected.

Scents from American Eagle Outfitters, known as AE77 has the most chemicals not listed on the label that is about 24 compounds, followed by Coco Channel with 18 secret chemicals. The Dolce and Gabbana Light while Blue has at least a secret chemical compound which is only seven.

DEP compounds used as solvents and creates a special smell in the production of this fragrance is one ingredient that is not listed, but that does not mean this compound is not harmful.

In this study also explains that galaxolide and tonalide compounds can cause interference with the hormones estrogen and androgen.

“We want to encourage more stringent regulations regarding this fragrance products, one must include all materials used on the label. Because people should know what happened or what the incoming material in its body,” says Dr. Naidenko.

Dr. Naidenko further added that the materials used must be thoroughly tested to determine its safety. This is to minimize the risk of danger that might arise.

Terrible Effects of Electrocuted

by on May.24, 2010, under Information Technology

electricityShocking by electricity can be a scary thing for anyone, because if the high-voltage or prolonged can cause death. Any injury suffered by the people who electrocuted?

Electricity is one of the requirements for helping a variety of activities. But if someone is not careful in its use, it is actually useful things could endanger yourself and those around him.

As quoted from HowStuffWorks, human body is a conductor (electrically conductive) that is very good, because about 70 percent of the human body consists of water.

This makes it very easy flow of electricity through the human body in seconds. The higher the electric current and long accepted by the body, the more serious injuries caused.

Regardless of the electricity received by the body still cause shock or vibration. But this stress can sometimes be felt by someone but there is also not felt by the body.

Minimal small electrical shocks can cause a person experience headaches, fatigue or muscle spasms, unconsciousness, and shortness of breath while temporary.

But if it lasts longer or in higher voltage can cause burns, vision loss, brain damage, heart attacks, stop breathing and death.

If someone in shock for a moment, then only will cause pain. But if the voltage is high enough can also cause fatal, although only a few seconds. For example if the flow reaches 100 mA, the possibility can cause death in just over two seconds.

D’Genetic of Technology Moving From Lab to Medical Practices

by on May.24, 2010, under Information Technology

technology2In January, practicing doctors and doctors-to-be entered a new class at the Medical College of Wisconsin with a futuristic name, “Translational Genetics.” The idea was simpler than it sounded: We are fast approaching the time when doctors will use our genetic profiles to treat us.

One of the students was Kevin Regner, a practicing kidney doctor at Froedtert Hospital, who had been hearing for years, “Personalized medicine is just around the corner.” Doctors will tailor treatments to each patient's genes and the risks they reveal. It will all be routine.

Regner had doubts. Sequencing of the first human genome in 2003 took more than a decade and cost about $600 million – an effort too herculean to assume doctors would repeat it with patients and insurance companies would foot the bill anytime soon.

But Regner was in for a surprise. As he and his classmates listened, Howard Jacob, head of the college's Human and Molecular Genetics Center, described what has happened since completion of the genome project. He showed two photos: a machine that helped sequence the first human genome in 2003, and then a machine the Medical College has today. The new model does the work of 200 of the old ones; it can sequence a human genome in a few months for several hundred thousand dollars.

And the Medical College has already ordered next-generation sequencers. Within less than a decade, a complete genetic blueprint could be attainable in 15 minutes for as little as $100.

Moreover, in a case that suggests the technology is beginning the journey from research to medical practice, Jacob described how he and his colleagues used a targeted version of gene-sequencing to diagnose and treat an apparently new disease in a young boy at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

In the audience, Regner had a moment of recognition. “It's likely we'll see this kind of personalized medicine in my lifetime,” he said, “and in the course of my medical practice.”

Med schools join in

Medical schools are coming to this recognition as well – albeit too slowly for some. Already, companies such as 23andMe and Navigenics are selling personal genetics tests, offering consumers the chance to learn their risks for dozens of diseases. This month pharmacy giant Walgreens announced it would sell a personal genetic test in thousands of stores across the country, though the company put the plans on hold after federal regulators said the tests had not been approved.

“More and more patients are going to be walking into their doctor's office with genes sequenced,” said George Church, a genetics professor at Harvard Medical School and one of the pioneers of gene sequencing. “Very few doctors even know where to refer them.”

In years to come, however, some say gene-sequencing and analysis could take a place in the medical tool kit alongside such fundamentals as anatomy and family history.

Eric J. Topol, director of the Scripps Translational Science Institute in La Jolla, Calif., said there are now genetic tests that determine how patients will respond to specific medications such as Plavix, a widely used blood clot prevention drug. Some tests even reveal appropriate dosages. Yet when researchers surveyed more than 10,000 physicians, just 10% said they had the necessary information and training to use the tests, according to a report in October by the American Medical Association and Medco.

“The resistance to change in medicine, which is profound,” Topol said, “is something that is part lack of education.”

Some of the country's leading medical schools and institutions have launched programs to close the education gap.

• At Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, doctors started a first-in-the-nation program last fall to teach pathology residents about genomics and to train them to interpret genetic data. Residents all had the option of using a Navigenics test to search their own genes for common mutations. Twelve out of 17 volunteered for the testing and discussed the results with genetics counselors, said Mark Boguski, an associate professor at Harvard Medical School who works in Beth Israel's pathology department.

Mental Disorders Are Controversial

by on May.18, 2010, under Indonesian Issues 2010

jiwaIn Jakarta, mental disorders often connotations with crazy people in the street or in a mental hospital. Yet not only that, many other deviant behaviors are classified as mental disorders, even controversial.

Anything controversial mental disorder?

As quoted from the LiveScience, following 10 controverial mental disorder:

1. Gender identity disorders

The most controversial in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM mental disorders or guidelines) is a disorder of gender identity or gender dysphoria is called.

Gender identity disorders that is when someone who has normal sexual anatomy but want to change the opposite sex with gender at birth.

2. Sex addiction

According to the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health, sexual addiction is marked by a lack of control over a person's sexual behavior.

Sex addiction is not merely due to illness could not resist the temptation or sexual stimulation, but also because of an inability to control behavior.

3. Homosexuality

Sexual interactions in people with the same sex has become controversial since the first. People who perform a type called a homosexual sexual relations, and is divided into a gay (male homosexual), or lesbians (homosexual women).

4. Asperger Syndrome

Overview of Asperger's syndrome looks normal, has no physical problems and have a normal intelligence level. New problems arise when patients have to interact with others.

Asperger syndrome looks weird and has no concern and empathy when communicating with people. Patients did not know the meaning of body language like smiling, sad face, happy that people who do not know that his interlocutor with Asperger's Syndrome will taste weird.

New Technology Helps Cumbrian Hospital Patients Rate Care Rrom Their Beds

by on May.16, 2010, under Information Technology

technology1Cleanliness, food and ward environment are all now able to be rated by patients using new hand-held, touch-screen monitors.

Bosses at North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust which runs the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle and West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven say this will enable patients to give their “real time” views and say any issues raised can be dealt with immediately.

Once the views are collected, a new web-based programme will then be used to monitor how patients think the hospital is performing.

The scheme, which replaces a system of sending questionnaires to people once they have been discharged, has been developed by Sandy Brown, director of nursing, quality and governance and Mark Irving, cancer nurse specialist. It will cost £8,000 per year, using eight touch screen pads which will be given out to patients during their stay.

It has been piloted for the past 12 months at the two hospitals and could now be rolled out to other hospitals across the country.

New Roaming in Technology Turns To Wi-Fi into 4G

by on May.16, 2010, under Information Technology

4gLund, Sweden – Swedish startup Anyfi Networks today came out of stealth mode to present Anyfi.net, a Wi-Fi roaming technology they hope will shake up the mobile broadband industry. This new technology lets an Internet service provider offer the same Wi-Fi user experience both at home and on the go.

“Until now Wi-Fi hotspots have been difficult to use and inherently insecure. Our solution works with any Wi-Fi device out of the box and provides fully automatic WPA security” said Björn Smedman, CEO.

The trick is combining Wi-Fi with IP, Internet Protocol, to break the tie between logical network and physical infrastructure, much in the same way as Voice over IP separates your phone service from the physical line.

“You can think of it as Wi-Fi over IP” explained Björn Smedman. “Our cloud based matchmaking service keeps track of each device's favorite network and makes sure it is available from the closest access point. By forwarding the raw Wi-Fi radio traffic over the Internet we can ensure security, even if an attacker is in control of the access point.”

According to the company this high level of security is one of the key features making the technology suitable for integration in modems of various types, and this is what makes it potentially disruptive, effectively turning Wi-Fi into a full-blown 4G technology.

10 Deadly Diseases Transmitted Between Species

by on May.16, 2010, under Uncategorized

deseaseIn my country, bacteria and viruses is a creature that is very easy to breed and the disease it causes highly contagious. At present a number of contagious and deadly disease has been transferred from animals to humans and from humans to animals. What are the deadly disease?

Cross-species infection could come from farms or markets, which creates conditions of mixing of pathogens. That give pathogens an opportunity to exchange genes and equipment up to the earlier killing of foreign host.

Transmission can also occur from activities that seem trivial and harmless, like letting a monkey riding on top of your head, a lot happens on the streets in Bali.

Microbes from the two varieties can even be assembled in your intestines, the virus evolved and make some 'dancing' to turn you into a host of infectious and deadly.

Infectious diseases from animals to humans is called zoonosis. There are more than three dozen diseases, whether transmitted through touch as well as from the bite.

As quoted from the LiveScience,the following 10 deadly infectious disease from cross-species:

1. Influenza pandemics

Deadly flu pandemic like the Spanish flu, swine flu or bird flu has struck in several countries. Potential pandemic is very easily spread by direct contact, so that could be very dangerous.

Between 1918 and 1919, Spanish flu killed 20 to 40 million people. This is truly a global disaster. This deadly flu attacked people ages 20 to 40 years, and infects 28 percent of Americans.

And lately also emerging swine flu and avian influenza that has become epidemic in some countries. Now, governments are better prepared, scientifically and logistics to manage the outbreak. However, there is no vaccine against swine flu.

2. Plague

Pestilence known as 'Black Death', is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Yersinia pesti, most often carried by rodents and fleas. At mid-century, millions of people across Europe died from plague caused by rat infestation that is widely available in homes and offices.

3. Diseases due to bites

Zoonotic diseases is expected to rise due to the bite of an animal that kills hundreds of thousands of people every year. Mosquitoes are the main causes, such as dengue fever and malaria.

Nerve Disease Migraine Apparently Derivatives

by on May.14, 2010, under International Issues

sarafIn Cambridge, people first learned about migraine from the time of 1500 BC (BCE). The headaches are commonly experienced, but few understand it. And the fact that migraine is a disease carried since birth and is derived from the parent.

Although migraine is not life threatening, but the headaches this is a disease classified as severe and many people do not know.

“In fact, migraine is a complex neurological disease that affects the central nervous system and is accompanied by physical symptoms and emotional,” said Dr. Carolyn Bernstein, neurologists from Cambridge Health Alliance-Cambridge Campus, as reported from Dailymail .

Dr. Bernstein himself attracted to specialize neurology because it is also often experienced a migraine since the age of 20 years. According to him, not many people know about the causes of migraine disease and how to overcome them. So that specialization is quite attractive.

And in his book entitled 'The Migraine Brain', Dr. Bernstein explains that migraine is caused by brain abnormalities.

Migraine is not a result of mental health problems or signs of hypochondria (health phobia or worry too much with a serious illness), or patient error.

Migraine is a chronic neurological disorder from birth, and in many cases the disease is inherited from both parents.

Migraine is derived from the mother

The surprise was one of five women and one of 20 men in the UK has been suffering from migraine. Migraine is the ninth leading cause of disability in the world, and is more common than diabetes or asthma.

Research shows that between 70 to 80 percent suffer from migraines have a family history of migraine also suffered, especially of maternal factors.

Because this disease is caused by a genetic condition, then there is no drug that can actually cure the disease. Existing medications can only reduce and minimize the symptoms caused.

According to Dr. Bernstein, who has no experience or history of migraine an exact match. This can lead to very difficult to compare the trigger migraines experienced by a person to another.

There is a myth that says that migraine sufferers should avoid chocolate and foods with MSG. This is not entirely correct. For some people this might be kind of food can be a migraine trigger, but this did not apply for all people who suffer from migraine.

Every person has different triggers. Migraine triggers may be from red wine, weather changes, lack of sleep or the stinging smell of perfume.

The trigger is not only disrupt the brain, but also interferes with the work, because it triggers biochemical chain reactions that can cause some symptoms.

Unlike a regular headache, migraine also involves an entirely different experience and almost always include some reactions and physical symptoms.

85 percent of migraine patients experience continuous throbbing head, the pain is felt with every beat of heart, like a knife who stabbed repeatedly in the head.

For years, doctors thought that migraine is caused by vasodilation, ie widening of blood vessels in the brain and suppress the structure-sensitive to pain.

True, for many patients with migraine, headache is one of the symptoms that accompany migraine. But the migraine itself almost never just a pain in the head, there are other symptoms that accompany it.

Migraine symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, sensitivity to light or sound, numbness or odd sensations in the skin, changes in vision, hunger, speech slurred, his eyes red and excessive crying. These symptoms are very diverse and complex.
