A new study, led by Professor Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede from the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, suggests that eating cod, herring, and red snapper may help in preventing Parkinson’s disease.
The researchers also highlight that fish is normally a lot more nutritious at the end of summer because of increased metabolic activity.
One of the study researchers Nathalie Scheers says: “Levels of parvalbumin [a protein that prevents the formation of protein structures associated with the tremor disorder] are much higher in fish after they had a lot of sun, so it could be worthwhile increasing consumption during autumn.”
Other conditions linked to protein formation in the brain such as Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s diseases may also benefit from higher fish consumption. The researchers plan to investigate the potential of parvalbumin in the future studies.
American fitness instructors and doctors have come up with a way to make your workout in the hall or at home interesting.
According to the American medical show, a simple deck of cards will be needed for this.
How to play
For each suit, a certain exercise is assigned. For example, Diamonds is an exercise Jumping Jack, Spades – Burpee, Hearts – Squats, and Clubs – jumping.
To participate in the game, you can choose a different number of people. But the less they will be, the more effective the training will be. By the way, you can play the game with yourself.
The rules are simple: after you mix a card deck, stretch out the card without looking. The suit will indicate the exercise, and the number on is the number of repetitions. Wallet, Lady, King and Ace can be tens or may become the number that will be assigned by players.
Scientists have proved that regular sports can not be left suddenly. Otherwise, it will negatively affect the state of health.
As the Australian scientists have found out in the result of research, a sharp pause in trainings can negatively affect, first of all, the psychical state. In particular, this leads to a rapid development of depressive disorders.
The study involved 152 people (50 women and 102 men), each of whom had previously trained from 30 minutes three times a week for at least three months. And even with such a short period of experience, each participant noted violations of mental status after a sharp pause.
Professor Bernhard Baune, senior co-author of the study said that depressive symptoms began to appear after only three days, and after a week or two the symptoms worsened significantly, while women suffered more than men.
While scientists can not name a mechanism that would reliably explain the relationship between the cessation of training and mental state.
According to one theory, adequate activity is important for physical and mental health, because it affects the proper metabolism and hormonal background, as well as the activity of nerve cells. And the lack of loads provokes disruptions, which, first of all, affect the psyche, which can lead to severe depression.
Researchers from Switzerland are working on creating a prototype of biometrical implant that could alert those who wear it to the presence of cancer at the early stages.
The implant consists of genetic components that are incorporated into body cells. When this implant is placed under the patient’s skin, it is able to monitor blood calcium levels. According to the previous studies, the 30% of individuals with cancer have an elevated calcium concentration in their systems.
If the calcium levels rapidly rise, melanin would flood the genetically modified cells and will make it look like a brown mole. Thus, a person that has such a biometrical tattoo will be alerted sooner than obvious signs of cancer appear.
