Biscuits cause our weight gain : a research

Pennsylvania: According to a new study, digestion delays due to eating biscuits, cakes, burgers and sausage rolls cause our weight gain.

Scientists say that junk food changes the brain by reducing our ability to control our appetite.

In experiments conducted by the researchers in mice, it was found that cells called astrocytes control the stomach chemically. But according to research, continuous consumption of fat and sweet food disrupts this system.

"It appears that astrocytes (star-like cells in the brain) control calorie consumption in the short term," said lead author Dr Christine Browning from Penn State University in Pennsylvania.

He said that the research found that the short-term dilution of a high-fat/calorie diet had a great effect on astrocytes, affecting the normal signaling system that controls the stomach.

Over time, astrocytes become insensitive to a high-fat diet, he said. Astrocytes fail to react after eating for 10 to 14 days of a high-fat or calorie diet and appear to lose the brain’s ability to consume calories. It interferes with the signals going to the stomach and causes delay in digestion.

This research conducted by the team of scientists opens the way for the formation of anti-obesity drugs that target neurons

14-year-old girl dies of deodorant

BBC URDU

On January 27, 2023 , 14-year-old Giorgia Green from Derby, UK, was found dead due to heart failure. Before her death, the girl had sprayed deodorant in her room.

After the death of their daughter, their parents learned that even before their daughter’s death, many children had died due to deodorant particles entering the body.

The British Aerosol Manufacturers Association responded by saying there were "clear warnings" on deodorants.

The law is that aerosol deodorants should have a warning printed ‘keeping children out of reach’.

But Georgia’s parents say it’s written too short on the spray. He says that many parents buy deodorant for their children without noticing the warning.

"People don’t know how dangerous the material in these tins can be. ‘

"I would like this to happen so that no one in the country, but in the world, has to go through the trauma that we are going through," he said. We don’t want our daughter’s death to go in vain. ‘

Giorgia was autistic and her father says she loved spraying deodorant on the bed and sheets because her scent made her feel comfortable.

"His scent gave him a sense of comfort. ‘

"If she was restless, spraying it would give her comfort because this deodorant was used by my wife. ‘

On May 11, 2022, Georgia’s brother found her unconscious.

"The door to her room was open, so it’s not like she was in a closed room. ‘

The ‘exact amount’ of deodorant sprayed is not clear, but it will be higher than what is usually sprayed. ‘

"At some point pulling him in with a breath made his heart stop working. ‘

An investigation into Giorgia’s death resulted in it being termed an "accidental death".

The medical cause of death has not been confirmed, but it has been said that the circumstances in which the death occurred may have been due to particles released from the aerosol entering the body with breath.

Between 2001 and 2020, 11 death certificates had ‘deodorant’, according to the UK’s Office of National Statistics.

However, deaths can be higher because death certificates do not always contain specific death-causing material.

Giorgia’s death certificate mentions ‘entering the aerosol body through breathing’ instead of ‘deodorant’.

Butane was one of the leading causes of 324 deaths between 2001 and 2020.

The Bureau of Statistics says that this material has been linked to many deaths and that "inhalation of butane and propane gas can cause a heart attack."

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) said excessive spraying of deodorant caused deaths

Frequent hypoglycemia (low sugar) is dangerous for diabetic patients

Despite the fact that diabetics are at increased risk for vision loss, patients who experience frequent low blood sugar may experience slightly more eye damage. As a result, frequent low blood sugar levels can aggravate diabetes-related vision problems. Scientists from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine reported that as a patient’s blood sugar level decreases, the supply of oxygen to the eye’s associated cells is also affected, and as a result, this process occurs repeatedly and vision may deteriorate.

In this study, human and rat eye cells with retinas were grown in the lab by abruptly depriving them of sugar, and the results were recorded. The study is published in the most recent issue of the scientific journal Cell Reports.

According to university researcher Akrit Sodhi and his colleagues, diabetics who take insulin and experience twice-daily blood sugar drops below normal may sustain additional eye damage. According to him, diabetic patients who do not take insulin can also experience this condition, which can occur while sleeping. This reduces the amount of oxygen that gets to the eye on the one hand, and on the other hand, it makes the cellular proteins in the retina grow, which thickens the blood vessels and could make it harder for diabetics to see.

Researchers assert that this change occurs at the cellular and molecular level of the eye, despite the need for further research on the entire process. The expression of a gene called GLUT1 then increases, and a protein that reduces oxygen further is produced.

Scientists have also found out the complete mechanism (pathway) of this process and are now doing more research.

Cataract prevention: diet for the eyes

Every year, people over 40 should have their eyes examined. The ophthalmologist should be seen twice a year if there is a family history of eye diseases. Advanced cataract is a disability. For no other reason than the discomfort of the procedure, it is not worth risking vision loss.

Diet for the eyes

Although there is no scientific proof that diet can lower the risk of cataracts, we can “feed” our eyesight by adhering to the adage “you are what you eat.” Simple: the plate should be as colorful as possible for best visual appeal.

How to eat for eye health:

  • Avoid everything white: rice, flour, salt, and sugar,
  • Eat leafy vegetables , sweet potatoes, and carrots – they are sources of vitamin A, which is necessary for the proper functioning of the retina,
  • Let spinach, broccoli, and red pepper land on your plate; they are rich in lutein, which acts as a filter, protecting the eye from harmful UVA and UVB light. The right dose of lutein can reduce the risk of developing cataracts by up to 30%.
  • Blueberries and products rich in omega-3 fatty acids are healthy for the eyes. Fish (halibut, mackerel, and salmon) protect the outer layers of the eye and improve circulation.

Stress and appearance: how does stress affect beauty?

Stress can hurt your body, but it can also make you look ugly. Stress can cause wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes, weak hair, dry skin, acne, and other changes to the skin.

Stress and appearance:

Stress can cause changes in our hair, skin, or eyes. How can that be? Stress makes the body do different things. It can mess up the way hormones work, change the structure of DNA, and change the bacteria in the gut.

Stress can cause acne

Changes in hormones brought on by stress can cause acne. When we are stressed, our bodies make cortisol, which makes the sebaceous glands work harder and makes seborrhea worse. Stress can throw off the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut, which can also cause skin changes that people don’t want.

Stress makes your skin dry

Stress makes the skin less hydrated because it upsets the way it normally keeps water in. It often gets dry and flaky. People who drink a lot of coffee, which also makes you lose water, should pay extra attention to this.

Stress and wrinkles

Collagen, which gives skin its elasticity, breaks down when you’re stressed or nervous. But that’s not all. Stress also hurts the DNA itself by making the telomeres weaker (their job is to protect the chromosomes and rebuild DNA losses). As a result, cells die and we look older..

Do you have hollow eyes? It’s from stress

When we are stressed, we often don’t get enough sleep. This is bad for our health and also for the skin around our eyes, which doesn’t have time to renew and heal. There are shadows and bumps that don’t make anyone more attractive. Getting enough sleep is the key. An adult should sleep about 7-8 hours.

Stress and thin and sparse hair

Stress that lasts for a long time can also hurt the health of the hair. It can stop the hair from growing, damage its structure, and even cause the hair follicles to become inflamed. When we are stressed, our bodies make chemicals that mess up the changes in the hair follicle and can even cause telogen effluvium.

The way you sleep encourages sleep wrinkles. How much sleep should you get to look younger?

Wrinkles will form no matter what. But they don’t all have to show up. One example is sleep wrinkles, which become permanent when you sleep in a certain way. The problem gets worse as time goes on. Scientists have investigated the best way to reduce wrinkles while sleeping.

Sleeping in certain positions – especially on the side – affects the appearance of unusual wrinkles (so-called sleep wrinkles) And since we sleep for a third of our lives, it’s worth knowing how to rest if those extra wrinkles are not welcome by us.

Sleep wrinkles can be avoided

You have to sleep, so how can you avoid getting wrinkles while you sleep? Researchers at Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center, led by Dr. Goesel Anson, a plastic surgeon, found that the only way to get rid of sleep lines is to not put pressure on your face while you sleep. So, in this case, the best way to sleep is on your back, or supine.

We can try sleeping on our backs, which is easier with certain pillows. But you should keep in mind that sleeping on your back can make some diseases worse, like sleep apnea and gastroesophageal reflux disease. A better solution might be to get a special pillow that lets you sleep on your side without making your face look funny.

A problem that increases with age

With age, the skin loses the ingredients that allow it to regain its former appearance (collagen, elastin, water). The number of body position changes at night also decreases (from 27 to 16). Most of us sleep mostly on our sides (65% of our sleep time), and on our backs less often (30%).

Sleep wrinkles and mimic wrinkles

Wrinkles after sleeping differ from mimic wrinkles in their location, mechanism of formation and arrangement. They arise as a result of external forces (not subcutaneous muscle contractions, as in the case of mimic wrinkles) and are perpendicular to the mimic wrinkles.

Infections have become stronger due to excessive or misuse of antibiotics: WHO

The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that in the year 2020, the misuse or excessive use of antibiotics around the world has revealed the strength of bacteria, which has further strengthened the infections.

According to the latest report released by the World Health Organization, data obtained from 87 countries of the world has shown that the misuse or overuse of antibiotics increased infections, which worsened diseases.

Popular heart medications can prolong life

According to a study in the journal “Aging Cell,” well-known medications used to treat cardiovascular disease can also delay the onset of old age. Although the investigations were conducted on animals, the authors think they could prove to be a successful anti-aging technique.

A calorie-restrictive diet is now thought to be the most effective anti-aging therapy. However, studies of calorie restriction in people have produced conflicting findings, as the experts point out. According to recent studies, there is already a medicine that might turn out to be a workable solution.
