          Plantean microrobots que eliminan bacterias contaminantes del agua   


PV- Plantean microrobot para eliminar bacterias en el agua  Investigadores del Instituto de Bioingeniería de Cataluña (IBEC), junto con colaboradores del Max Planck for Intelligent Systems de Stuttgart, han diseñado unos diminutos robots que pueden eliminar del agua las bacterias causantes de enfermedades, como la Escherichia coli.

El estudio, publicado en la revista ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, describe el desarrollo de pequeños robots que pueden nadar en el agua y limpiar a su paso las bacterias causantes de enfermedades.

El trabajo ha sido dirigido por la investigadora postdoctoral Diana Vilela, miembro del grupo Smart Nano-Bio-Devices del IBEC.

Los robots están diseñados como partículas esféricas con dos hemisferios diferenciados: una cara está hecha con magnesio, que reacciona con el agua para producir burbujas de hidrógeno que propulsan los microbots, y la otra está formada por capas alternas de hierro y oro cubiertas por nanopartículas de plata.

Así, las bacterias se adhieren al oro y son eliminadas por las nanopartículas de plata.

“Nuestros ensayos en el laboratorio muestran que los microbots pueden navegar a través del agua durante unos 15 a 20 minutos antes de quedarse sin magnesio y, en este tiempo, son capaces de atrapar más del 80 % de las bacterias E. coli en agua con una alta concentración de ellas”, explicó Samuel Sánchez, responsable del grupo Smart Nano-Bio-Devices del IBEC.

“Después, debido a las propiedades magnéticas del hierro, los microbots pueden ser recogidos fácilmente con un imán, sin dejar ningún residuo en el agua”, especificó.

Con estos robots podría solucionarse el problema de la contaminación del agua potable, que puede causar enfermedades potencialmente mortales cuando no se dispone de un tratamiento adecuado, como ocurre en muchas zonas del mundo.

Según los investigadores, aunque el cloro u otros agentes consiguen desinfectar el agua en gran medida, algunas bacterias y otros microorganismos son muy resistentes y resultan muy difíciles de eliminar.

Además, señalan, en ocasiones los componentes de estos desinfectantes pueden ser perjudiciales para la salud humana.

Esta investigación ha sido financiada por la Alexander von Humboldt Foundation de Alemania, el European Research Council y el Max Planck Institute.

A method for promoting the health of a plant comprises administering malic acid to the plant or the soil in an amount effective to recruit plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) to the plant. Administration of malic acid promotes biofilm formation of PGPR on the plant's roots, thereby restricting entry of a foliar pathogen through stomatal pores present in the leaves. Another method for promoting the health of a plant comprises administering acetoin to the plant or the soil in an amount effective to increase pathogen resistance in aerial parts of the plant.
          Hydrangeas dying....   
Hello Mysterious problem here....All of a sudden 3 of my well-established (2 - 4 years) hydrangeas (1 lacepcap and 2 p'pom pom') have started to die rapidly. In the space of one week the leaves turned yellowish and black, wilted, then slimy brown and finally dried out brown mush. The stems that held them also died. Each plant is still just alive (the oldest is the least affected). They are all quite far apart (2 metres and 10 metres). The leaves show some nibblings (but not many) by slugs, snails or possibly other creatures. All are well watered. Their spots are sem- shade on a well drained soil over heavy water retentive clay. SO far they have thrived. Because the dying hsa been sudden, speedy and simultaneous I've assumed a fungal / bacterial / viral / inesect attack. I've dug one up and can find nothing wrong with the roots; healthy and light coloured, springy, not rotten and no evididence of slugs or vine weevils or others. I did fear vine weevils as some of the nibbles on the leaves did look a little serrated as per the images I've seen online. I'ev also noticed reddish brown spots on the new green stems - though not sure if these are related. I attach some pictures. Any help much appreciated as they are a real mainstay of my garden. I have 4 others, all recentlly planted, and I don't really want to re-think my plan!
          Comment on Forgotten Laundry (How to Remove the Stink from Clothes Left in the Washer) by Dewey   
Hi! Our washing machine broke down the other week when I tried to wash my white clothes on the day of my flight to a wedding, when the machine broke I had to move the wet clothing to a tub. A week later when I got back there was a really stinky smell left on my white clothes and there are even yellow spots starting to appear! I do not know where those yellow stain came from, so i just threw it in the cold washing settings and washed it 3 times with detergent. It turned out not bad because the yellow stain is now gone but i am still worried it could be some form of fungus or bacteria on the clothing for leaving it wet for too long. So I am very hesitant on using vinegar on my clothing because I read some where that vinegar can shorten the clothes life time. Also what vinegar should I use and I have a HE washer so I do not know where I would add the vinegar.

          There May Be More In The Starbucks Mix   
Fecal Bacteria
According to Business Insider, "fecal bacteria" may be accompanying orders of iced coffee drinks at three coffee chains in the UK anyways.

Citing reports from the recent BBC investigation, BI said that there are "varying levels" of the bacteria in samples of iced drinks from Starbucks, Costa Coffee, and Caffe Nero.

Penny Mairoudhiou, a spokesperson for Costa Coffee, told BI, "We were disappointed with the findings, especially as these stores are all rated 'Very Good' with the top hygiene rating of 5."

The presence of fecal bacteria — which can cause diarrhea if ingested — could be a sign that there are nastier germs also present, said Philip Tierno, a microbiologist at New York University.

"Where there are fecal bacteria present it is an indicator that there could be other germs that are pathogenic [or illness-causing] like Norovirus or hepatitis A or Salmonella that can make you sick," Tierno said to BI.

It also suggests that workers at the chains are not keeping themselves clean and that they "have dirty bare hands," he said.

In addition to sampling the ice at 30 of the chains, British researchers also studied their tables, trays, and high chairs. London chain Costa Coffee ranked worst out of the three cafes, with seven out of 10 samples "found to be contaminated with bacteria found in feces."

"It is extremely important to us that all our stores operate to high standards of hygiene at all times and we take it very seriously when any store fails to meet these standards," said Mairoudhiou. "Following these results we have taken immediate action to update our ice handling procedures."

Starbucks and Caffe Nero, on the other hand, tested positive for the bacteria in three out of 10 samples.

Starbucks told Business Insider they had begun their own investigation into the findings, and Caffe Nero told the BBC it had also "taken action."

          Here's how you can enjoy an acne-free monsoon   

[USA], June 30 (ANI): Turns out, keeping those pimples and boils at bay is as easy as taking some antibiotics.

The simple skin abscesses, a swollen area containing an accumulation of pus, is caused by Staphylococcus aureus (staph) bacteria.

The findings showed that adults and children, who have abscesses five centimeters or smaller in diameter have higher cure rates and when the abscess is drained in combination with antibiotic treatment, either trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX or Bactrim) or clindamycin, it helped in frequently preventing recurrence of infection.

They found that clindamycin and TMP/SMX were equally effective in adults, while clindamycin in children had a slightly higher cure rate in children and more frequently prevented recurrence of infection.

Clindamycin had an overall cure rate of about 83 percent of participants; TMP/SMX about 82 percent; and the placebo about 70 percent.

"What we saw is that in fact antibiotics are helpful.

You are more likely to get better if you have antibiotics on board than if you don't. And we also saw in children that clindamycin was associated with fewer recurrences in the one month of follow up," said Buddy Creech from Vanderbilt University Medical Center in the US.

They analysed 786 participants of which 505 were adults and 281 were children.

Bacteria isolated from the abscesses included 527 samples identified as staph and 388 samples identified as methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA).

Patients were randomised to receive either a placebo, clindamycin, or TMP/SMX for 10 days after the drainage of the abscess.

The team drained the abscess, measured it carefully to make sure it was less than five centimeters and then randomised participants received a placebo or one of the antibiotics, clindamycin or TMP/SMX.

Staph, including methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strains, causes most skin and soft tissue infections, but the appropriate strategy for the treatment of these infections has not been defined.

Clindamycin and TMP/SMX are often recommended for outpatient treatment of abscesses because of their low cost and their ability to fight community-acquired

The research is published in journal of Medicine. (ANI)


          Could ants be the solution to antibiotic crisis?   
Bacterial defences of fungus-farming ants could help in medical battle against superbugs

Scientists have pinpointed a promising new source of antibiotics: ants. They have found that some species – including leaf-cutter ants from the Amazon – use bacteria to defend their nests against invading fungi and microbes.

Chemicals excreted by the bacteria as part of this fight have been shown to have particularly powerful antibiotic effects and researchers are now preparing to test them in animals to determine their potential as medicines for humans.

          Farmer’s Calendar for July 2017   
Will Bananas Help Save the Little Brown Bat? In the July twilight, bats flicker between trees, zigging and zagging in a relentless pursuit of mosquitoes. A single Little Brown Bat can eat 1,000 mosquitoes per hour—the equivalent of an average man eating eight large pizzas in the same period. The Little Browns have had a tough time recently, due to a fungal disease called white-nose syndrome, first discovered in New York State in 2006. Bats were dying by the millions in the caves where they hibernate over winter. The diseased bats had a white fungus on their noses. Scientists identified the fungus as Pseudogymnoascus destructans, which also happens to be found on bananas. Fruit growers had learned that it could be controlled with a common bacterium called Rhodococcus rhodochrous. A grad student studying white-nose syndrome at Georgia State University wondered if R. rhodochrous might work on bats as well as bananas. The test results are promising, and in May 2015, 75 previously infected bats were released in the Mark Twain Cave Complex in Hannibal, Missouri. With luck—and a little help from bananas—we may enjoy many more violet twilights watching bats skitter across the sky.

          Profesías de Nostradamus que no se cumplieron   
Sabio para algunos y farsante para otros, Michel de Notredame, mejor conocido como Nostradamus, nació el 14 de diciembre de 1503 en una pequeña localidad del sur de Francia, y desde su infancia destacó por su gran interés en la lectura y los idiomas, al mismo tiempo que su bisabuelo comenzó a instruirle en el campo que lo haría famoso: las ciencias astrales. Después de estudiar medicina y contraer matrimonio, Nostradamus comenzó a hacer uso de su presunta capacidad para predecir el futuro, logrando publicar desde horóscopos hasta almanaques. Durante su segundo matrimonio, Michael comenzó a emplear su “don de clarividencia” y conforme sus presagios se iban cumpliendo, su popularidad iba creciendo. Nostradamus falleció a la edad de 62 años, el 2 de julio de 1566, a causa de un edema, pero dejó una gran cantidad de profecías escritas, las cuales están recopiladas en 10 tomos que se conocen como Centurias, de los cuales cada uno se encuentra elaborado con 100 predicciones de 4 versos cada una. Como bien lo menciona el portal ehowenespanol.com, las predicciones de Nostradamussorprenden al mundo cada vez que un acontecimiento conmociona al planeta, pero muchos sus pronósticos no siempre se cumplen. Sin embargo, al hombre también hay que darle el beneficio de la duda, pues según información de diversos portales en la web, existen algunas profecías que sí se han cumplido, pues pronosticó desde la caída de las Torres Gemelas hasta la llegada de Hitler al poder, así lo menciona el portal ABC. Entre estas profecías sí cumplidas podemos encontrar las siguientes: El nacimiento de Napoleón Bonaparte y su posterior alzamiento como emperador de Francia. Las dos bombas atómicas que Estados Unidos lanzó sobre las ciudades japonesas de Hiroshima y Nagasaki. Asesinato del Presidente de los Estados Unidos John F. Kennedy y la muerte de su hermano, el senador Robert Kennedy, quien falleció después de la una de la madrugada. El nacimiento de Hitler y su subida al poder. Los trágicos atentados sucedidos el 11 de septiembre de 2001 en E.U. cuando dos aviones chocaron contra las Torres Gemelas de Nueva York. El fin del mundo Es una de las más famosas del profeta, pero parece que no le atinó al año, pues en una de sus cuartetas afirmaba que “en el séptimo mes del año 1999 desde el cielo vendrá el gran rey del terror”, lo que muchos interpretaron como el fin, que no sucedió. La Tercera Guerra Mundial Según Nostradamus, ésta se iniciaría el 6 de septiembre de 2006, sin embargo no sucedió; además firmó que el año siguiente habría una pestilencia de la que ni jóvenes ni viejos ni bestias sobrevivirían, y tampoco sucedió. Su propia muerte Sí, por increíble que parezca Nostradamus intentó adivinar la fecha de su muerte. Predijo que iba a morir en noviembre de 1567, no obstante, Nostradamus murió a causa de un edema en julio de 1566, casi un año antes de lo que él mismo dijo. El Papa asesinado Como parte de su vaticinio de atentados en Italia, Nostradamus había previsto que para 2010 el Papa Benedicto XVI iba a ser atacado y muerto por una mujer. Algunos tienen sospechas de que esta profecía recae sobre la dudosa muerte de Juan Pablo I en 1978 Muerte de Juan Pablo II Según otra de sus profecías, el Papa iba a morir en la isla de Capri tras huir del Vaticano a causa de una invasión rusa, ya que iba a ser capturado e incinerado, sin embargo, Juan Pablo II murió en 2005 por causas naturales. Virus mortal En sus cuartetas, el astrologo anunciaba que para el año 2011 la humanidad entera sería víctima de una pandemia desencadenada por una guerra bacteriológica causada por armas químicas. El anticristo Según Nostradamus, el anticristo destruiría a tres países importantes en una larga guerra de aproximadamente 27 años, la cual comenzaría en 1999 y terminaría hasta el año 2026. Fin de España El profeta postuló que España iba a ser cautivada por el jefe del estado libio. Muchos seguidores del astrólogo francés creían que esta cuarteta estaba centrada en la figura de Muamar Gadafi, líder durante más de 42 de Libia y que fue asesinado en 2011. Caída de París El astrologo predijo que hacia 1999 en Francia iba a ser restaurada la monarquía. Según Nostradamus, a partir de ese momento, comenzaría la debacle en el país que iba a materializarse con sucesivas invasiones de los musulmanes.

          Can Massage Help With Digestion?   

Massage therapy digestion health wellness

Here is, we’re guessing, a pretty common list of reasons of why you might call up your massage therapist to make an appointment: sore muscles, tight joints, excessive stress, and if you just need a little pampering.  Those are all great reasons, of course, and massage handles each of those things pretty effectively.  However, what about those pesky digestion issues?  Surely massage can’t be effective for that, too?  Contrary to what you might think, it turns out that you can add certain digestive troubles to the long list of reasons why you should go running to the phone to book a massage. 

 

Ready for your anatomy lesson?  Peristalsis is the act of the muscles of your intestine involuntarily contracting to help the processing and digestion of your food.  There are many things, some of them surprising, that can slow your peristalsis process.  These causes include irritable bowel syndrome, mineral deficiencies, constipation, codeine use, and more.  When this crucial process slows, the results can an unpleasant combination of diarrhea, ulcerative colitis, and other bowel problems.  A full-body massage can help prevent peristalsis by stimulating the motion of the intestine, and its contents, to move along more quickly.  Also, massage helps the body rid itself of toxins, and increases the release of enzymes, both of which are essential for healthy digestion. 

 

Another digestive problem that we hear about so often from our clients is bloating, and gas that seems excessive.  Our bodies produce gas in two ways; one is by swallowing air (by eating too quickly, drinking from a straw, or chewing gum), and the other is by the bacteria in our large intestine as it helps digest our food.  Some foods will cause gassier results in some people than others, possibly leading to painful cramping and embarrassing sounds and smells.  Also, some people are more prone to gas than others, depending on sensitivity to foods or the presence of gut bacteria.  If you experience what seems to be excessive gas, it might be worthwhile to keep a log of foods you eat, and which ones have gassy outcomes.  While full-body massages are great for many things, abdominal massage in particular can be very helpful in alleviating gas buildup, uncomfortable bloating, and can strengthen the underlying abdominal muscles.

 

Also, you know that uncomfortable knot you get in your stomach, usually as a result of nervousness or stress?  Abdominal massage can help unknot your tensed-up muscles in your stomach, and make you feel more relaxed overall. 

 

If you’re a little unsure about how much you will or won’t like adding your abdomen into the full-body experience, you can ask your massage therapist to start slowly, and you can let him or her know if it ends up not being what you want. 

 

Please note that seeking out massage for digestion issues is not to be a substitute for the advice and care of a doctor.  If you have talked with a medical professional, and are very certain that you do not have a more serious underlying medical issue, then massage can be a great tool to help expel your stomach and gut of toxins and excessive gas, and also to help speed up your peristalsis, making you feel a whole lot more comfortable. 


          Flu Season – Give your Immune System a Boost with Hand and Foot Massage   

hand massageJanuary means that flu season is in full swing; there are many precautions that you can take to help avoid getting the flu. Flu shots are the obvious choice, while others choose to bathe in hand sanitizer and avoid anyone people for the months of flu season. While some tactics are more realistic than others, did you know that a simple massage technique can help reduce your odds of getting the flu? 

People who receive regular massage have noticed a boost in their immune systems and have felt better overall. Now, nothing can beat getting regular massage therapy from a certified therapist, but there are several techniques that you can do on your own, especially when it comes to fighting the flu. Hand and Foot Massages are simple massage techniques that you can do anywhere, and it will help boost your immune system.  

How to Perform a Foot Massage
This is an easy technique that takes just minutes. Take a tennis ball or golf ball, place it under your foot and roll your foot forward, and then backward. Apply enough pressure so that you feel relief. Then change the direction so that you’re rolling the ball from the inside to the outside of your foot. 

How to Perform a Hand Massage
To give yourself a hand massage, start with your knuckles. Massage each knuckle in a circular motion. Massaging the thick muscle between your thumb and your index finger is relaxing as well. Use your opposite finger and thumb to apply pressure to the muscle, increase the pressure throughout the massage. Stretching your fingers is also an excellent technique for relief. Hold your hand with your palm up and pull your fingers back to stretch. 

These techniques are quick ways to improve blood circulation, which can improve overall blood flow, and in turn helps your immune system fight off bacteria. 

Boost relaxation and your immune system in the comfort of your home with a simple hand and foot massage. Contact your local Elements Massage™ studio to help build up your immune system this flu season. Visit www.elementsmassage.com to find a studio near you.


              
#Repost @violin_sophia (@get_repost) ・・・ "The ability to make light—bioluminescence—is both commonplace and magical. Magical, because of its glimmering, captivating beauty. Commonplace, because many life-forms can do it. On land the most familiar examples are fireflies, flashing to attract mates on a warm summer night. But there are other luminous landlubbers, including glowworms, a snail, some millipedes, and—you are not hallucinating—certain mushrooms. 🐚 🐚 "But the real light show takes place in the sea. Here an astonishing array of beings can make light. Such as ostracods—tiny animals that look like sesame seeds with legs—flashing to attract mates, like seafaring fireflies. Or dinoflagellates—speck-of-dust-size beings named for their two whiplike flagella and the whirling motion they make (dinos means “whirling” in Greek). Dinoflagellates light up whenever the water around them moves; they are the critters typically responsible for the sparks and trails of light you sometimes see when swimming or boating on a dark night. 🐚 🐚 "Then there are lightmaking fish, squid, jellyfish, shrimp, the aforementioned ctenophores, several types of worms, and sea cucumbers. There are luminous siphonophores—sinister, stringlike predators with long, stinging tentacles that hang down like a curtain. And there are luminous radiolarians—amoeboid beings that typically live in colonies built on exquisite glass scaffolds. Not to mention glowing bacteria. Indeed, of all the groups of organisms known to make light, more than four-fifths live in the ocean.“ 🐚 🐚 Article: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2015/03/luminous-life/judson-text🐚 🐚 Photo: no credit given.

HISTAMINE FISH POISONING Histamine fish poisoning is among the most common toxicities related to fish ingestion. It is due to the consumption of inadequately preserved and improperly refrigerated fish. It resembles an allergic reaction but is actually caused by bacterially generated toxins in the fish's tissues. Toxin production occurs when inadequate refrigeration allows the multiplication of bacteria that contain histidine decarboxylase, which converts amino acid histidine in the fish tissues to histamine. Subsequent cooking, smoking, or canning of the fish does not eliminate the histamine. Affected fish do not have a distinctive appearance or odor. Occasionally, fish with higher histamine concentrations may have a pungent, peppery taste or bitter taste. Typical manifestations of histamine fish poisoning include skin flushing on the upper half of the body, rash, gastrointestinal (GI) complaints, and throbbing headache. The manifestations in details include Erythema of the face, neck, and upper torso Headache (severe and throbbing) Dysphagia Nausea and vomiting Abdominal cramps or epigastric pain Diarrhea Palpitations Pruritus Dizziness Dry mouth Angioedema Sense of anxiety or unease Respiratory distress and chest tightness (rare) Loss of vision (rare). Antihistamines such as Loratidine usually relieve the symptoms and support histamine as the causative agent. In severe cases, patients may require treatment for bronchospasm or hypotension (a decrease in blood pressure below normal).
          AMAZING HEALTH BENEFITS OF BANANA   

1) Keep blood pressure under check
Bananas are very rich in potassium yet almost completely devoid of sodium, and as such very well suitable to preventing high levels of blood pressure from overcoming the body. Blood pressure is one of the leading risk factors and indicator for heart disease.

An average banana contains up to 500 milligrammes of potassium and around 1 milligramme of sodium. Since potassium has a lowering effect on blood pressure while sodium has a strengthening effect, this is a wonderful ratio to consume on a daily basis.

 2)Cut down risk of stroke
A recent study suggests that eating three bananas a day cuts risk for stroke by 21 per cent. What is in a banana? The miracle ingredient is potassium, which reduces blood pressure, thus combating a leading cause of stroke.

3) Promote bone health.
Potassium may counteract the increased urinary calcium loss caused by the high-salt diets, thus preventing bones from thinning out at a fast rate. This, according to University of Maryland Medical Centre and University of Kansas Medical Centre, reduces the risk of osteoporosis.

4) Protect eyesight
Fruits like banana are important for keeping good sight. A 2004 study, published in the Archives of Ophthalmology, indicated that eating three or more servings of fruit per day may lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the primary cause of vision loss in older adults, by 36 per cent, compared to persons who consume less than 1.5 servings of fruit daily.

5)Supports healthy kidney
Research in the International Journal of Cancer suggests that regular, moderated consumption of whole fruits and vegetables, especially bananas, can be kidney-protective. The result of a large population based prospective study of 61,000 women aged 40 to 76, showed that women eating more than 75 servings of fruits and vegetables per month cut their risk of kidney cancer 40 per cent.

Also, according to the study in the Internal Journal of Cancer, women halved their risk of developing kidney problem by eating bananas compared to those who did not eat this fruit.

6)Ease depression
People suffering from depression, feel much better after eating a banana. Bananas contain Tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin which helps the body to relax, improve mood and generally make happier. Studies show that bananas are also helpful in reducing stress levels.

7)Treat anaemia
Experiencing anaemia, try banana rather than blood forming. High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of haemoglobin in the blood and so help in cases of anaemia.

Reduces constipation
Are you suffering from constipation? The best solution to constipation is eating a banana a day. Bananas are rich in fibre that can help to restore normal bowel action, and overcome constipation without resorting to laxatives. A single serving (one medium-sized banana) contains 16 per cent of the daily recommended dietary fibre intake for a normal adult.

8) Soothe heart burn
If suffering from heart burn, try eating a banana for its soothing relief. Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body.

9) Prevents morning sickness
Besides, their calming properties help combat morning sickness, snacking on bananas between meals can help in keeping blood sugar levels up.

10) Ease peptic ulcers
Banana is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in people with severe intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. Eating a raw banana also neutralises acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach. Aside this, other substances in bananas known as protease inhibitors get rid of bacteria in the stomach that produces stomach ulcers. 

Medical experts say that a simple concoction of banana and milk can help to suppress acid secretion considerably, thus protecting against stomach and ulcer damage.

11) Mood enhancers
 Bananas contain tryptophan, one of the 20 amino acids which helps the body to produce serotonin - which has a calming effect on the brain (creates a stable mood) and acts as a mild sedative. The only way the body gets its dose of tryptophan is through diet. It does not produce it.

12) Morning sickness cure
In pregnancy, just shoving a banana in the mouth calms the queasy feeling, restores the blood glucose level and body temperature.

13) Quit smoking
Bananas can help minimize the effects of nicotine withdrawal bananas are rich potassium, magnesium and other vital vitamins present which give the brain a soothing whenever it screams for nicotine.

14) Effective in diarrhoea
In uncomfortable conditions like diarrhoea, electrolytes are drained out of the body, causing weakness. These electrolytes can be restocked with the help of potassium levels present in bananas.

15) Menstrual pains cure
Majority of the womenfolk take pills to reduce menstrual pains. Rather than taking these pain killers eat a banana. Bananas are rich in vitamin B6 that helps in regulating blood glucose levels. This helps in balancing your overall mood and hence reduces menstrual pains.

16) Increase brain power
 A survey involving 200 students at a school in Middlesex, who were given bananas along with their normal diet for their breakfast, break and lunch proved that bananas increase brain power. The research indicated that potassium in bananas helped to increase their mental alertness and boost brain power.

Reduce itching of mosquito bites
Worried by an itching or swelling due to mosquito bites? Rather using these creams to reduce itching and swelling, use banana peels. Rub the itching or swelling area with the inside of banana peels to get a relief from mosquito bite itching or swelling.

17)Lower cholesterol
Pectin, a soluble fibre in banana facilitates reduction of cholesterol levels.  Expert based on findings from various studies say its water-soluble fibres such as pectin, psyllium, guar gum and beta-glucan effectively lower LDL Cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol) without causing any kind of disturbance to HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol.

18) Reduce risk of cancer
Rich in antioxidants and dietary fibre, consumption of bananas reduce risk of various types of cancer especially bowel cancer.

19) Cure pile
The complexity involved in passing stools normally, known as piles, may lead to bleeding often times.  Since bananas help normal bowel function, they can help to cure piles.

20) Dispel effect of hangover
The nutrients in bananas combined with their ability to refuel the body’s vitamins make them a perfect option to dispel the effect of a hangover.  A combination of bananas blended with honey and yoghurt makes an excellent cure for hangover.

21) Support weight loss
Containing loads of fibre and low amounts of fat, bananas are easily digestible. Therefore, a diet consisting primarily of bananas does not make an obese person gain a few extra kilos.

22) Healthy Skin
Bananas are loaded with essential nutrients vital for a healthy skin. They contain high doses of vitamin C which helps production of collagen, a type of protein found in the skin. Also, vitamin C a potent antioxidant protects the body from attack of free radicals that cause premature ageing.  Conversely, bananas are a good source of vitamin B6 known as pyridoxine essential for promoting a healthy skin.

23) Aphrodisiac
This shapely and nutritious fruit is a complete meal, loaded with potassium, magnesium and B vitamins. It also contains chelating minerals and the bromelain enzyme, said to enhance the male libido — maybe that’s why Central Americans drink the sap of the red banana as an aphrodisiac, while Hindus regard it as a symbol of fertility.

 With high levels of potassium and vitamin B to increase sex hormone production in our bodies, bananas are very popular for an aphrodisiac. It is widely believed that the similar shape between a banana and a male penis is the main reason for the banana being on the aphrodisiac lists.

Warnings
Like most fruits, the banana is a healthful food that can be eaten without any problem.  However, diabetics should consult with a physician or dietician to determine if bananas should be included in a diet that aims to reduce the consumption of carbohydrates.  Anyone with an allergy to bananas should also avoid the fruits to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction.

          PINKEYE (CONJUCTIVITIS)   



What Is Pinkeye?
Pinkeye -- also called conjunctivitis -- is redness and inflammation of the clear membranes covering the whites of the eyes and the membranes on the inner part of the eyelids. Pinkeye is most often caused by a virus or by a bacterial infection, although allergies, chemical agents, and underlying diseases can also play a role.

Is Pinkeye Contagious?

Viral and bacterial pinkeye are extremely contagious. It's easily spread through poor hand washing or by sharing an object (like a towel) with someone who has it. It can also spread through coughing and sneezing. Kids diagnosed with infectious pinkeye should stay out of school or day care for a short period of time. Allergic pinkeye (caused by seasonal pollens, animal dander, cosmetics, and perfumes) and chemical pinkeye (from chemicals or liquids, including bleach and furniture polish) are not contagious.

Symptoms:

Eye Redness

Redness of the eye is the typical, telltale symptom of pinkeye. Pinkeye is a common condition that is rarely serious and unlikely to cause long-term eye or vision damage if promptly detected and treated.

Swollen, Red Eyelids

The symptoms of infectious pinkeye typically begin in one eye and involve the other eye within a few days. Symptoms of allergic pinkeye usually involve both eyes. Swelling of the eyelids is more common with bacterial and allergic pinkeye.

Lots of Tearing

Viral and allergic pinkeye are known for causing more tear production than usual.

Itchy or Burning Eyes

You would know it if you felt it -- that overwhelming itchy, burning feeling in the eyes, which is typical of pinkeye.

Drainage from the Eyes

A clear, watery drainage is common with viral and allergic pinkeye. When the drainage is more greenish-yellow (and there's a lot of it), this is likely bacterial pinkeye.

Crusty Eyelids

If you wake up with your eyes "stuck shut," this may be caused by the discharge that accumulates during sleep from pinkeye.

Sensitivity to Light

Pinkeye can cause mild sensitivity to light. A person who has severe symptoms, such as changes in eyesight, severe light sensitivity, or severe pain may have an infection that has spread beyond the conjunctiva and should be re-examined by a doctor.

'Something in the Eye'

You may notice a bothersome feeling like something is stuck in your eye. Or, a child may describe the feeling as sand in the eye.

Pinkeye Diagnosis

A doctor can often diagnose pinkeye just by its distinguishing signs and symptoms. However a slit lamp exam may be required. In some cases, a swab of the discharge from the eye is sent to a lab for analysis to determine the cause.

When Pinkeye Means Something More

Persistent pinkeye can be a sign of an underlying illness in the body. Most often these are rheumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus). Pinkeye is also seen in Kawasaki disease (a rare disease associated with fever in infants and young children) and certain inflammatory bowel diseases, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.

Treating Pinkeye

Bacterial pinkeye is treated with antibiotic eyedrops, ointment, or pills to clear the infection. Most viral pinkeye cases have no specific treatment -- you just have to let the virus run its course, which is usually four to seven days. Allergic pinkeye symptoms should improve once the allergen source is removed and the allergy itself is treated. Chemical pinkeye requires prompt washing of the affected eye(s) for five minutes and an immediate call to the doctor.

Easing Symptoms

To reduce pain and to remove the discharge of bacterial or viral pinkeye, use a cold or warm compress on the eyes. Make sure to use a different washcloth for each eye to prevent spreading any infection. And use clean washcloths each time. Clean the eye from drainage by wiping from the inside to the outside of the eye area.

How Long Am I Contagious?

With bacterial pinkeye, you can usually return to work or school 24 hours after antibiotics have been started, as long as symptoms have improved. With viral pinkeye, you are contagious as long as the symptoms last. Check with your doctor to be certain.

Preventing Its Spread

If you or your child has infectious pinkeye, avoid touching the eye area, and wash your hands frequently, particularly after applying medications to the area. Never share towels or handkerchiefs, and throw away tissues after each use. Change linens and towels daily. Disinfect all surfaces, including countertops, sinks, and doorknobs. Throw away any makeup used while infected.

Biotite is a mineral with certain geological characteristics and was named in honor of a French physicist, Jean-Baptiste Biot. In Nature, biotite is in the form of very thin sheets of minerals and has a unique structure. Biotite deposits are found in many places around the globe but each deposit is different from all the others. The differences between them can be categorized by weight, mass, constituent profile, color, etc.

Research on the properties of biotite began in the 1960s and it was soon determined that it was jam packed with minerals. A process was invented to produce a super-concentrate, water purifying liquid from the biotite. The liquid was then filtered and diluted to make Biotite Concentrate (Liquid Crystal Minerals.) This process imitates Nature because when volcanic gases come in contact with water, they produce acidic compounds that, under the right temperature and pressure, in the presence of these biotite deposits, produce the same water purifying effects.

As a result of much research and investigation, this Biotite concentrate is now capable of sanitizing water, no matter how polluted it might be, no matter what the contaminants might be or where they may be. This is what makes Biotite such a revolutionary substance–it's ability to clean water no matter what.

Martin talks with Biotite founder, Owen Mullen, about the power of Biotite to clean and restucture water.

Use the Biotite Concentrate to:

  • soak/wash for produce that's not organically grown.
  • add to hot tubs, jacuzzi, whirlpool, spas, etc., instead of other chemicals - lasts up to eight months between uses.
  • add to a bath to create a mineral spa right in your own bathtub, and at a tiny fraction of the visit to a mineral spring.
  • replace chemicals that are ordinarily used for cleaning, for example, contact lens solutions or washing the kitchen countertops.
  • topical spray for houseplants or in the garden at a dilution level determined through experimentation.

Biotite Concentrate can also be diluted at the rate of 1000:1 for agricultural purposes because it improves the moisture characteristics of soil. Add it to the water, stir or agitate, then water your plants.

As a foliar spray for orchards, herbs or flowers.

Biotite provides an easy, natural and effective way to eliminate and/or reduce chlorine, fluoride, a number of anaerobic bacteria (E.coli, pseudomonas, etc.), heavy metals (mercury, lead, arsenic, etc.) VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and cloudiness of water in cases where water has been contaminated.

This powerful process also ensures that the treated water, when stored properly, will stay pure for an extended period due to its natural stability.

One hundred obese mums-to-be will be given Metformin as part of a three-year study to tackle obesity rates and reduce the number of difficult births.

Patients at Liverpool Women’s Hospital will be given the drug to reduce the food supply to their unborn babies, although it will not help the mums themselves to lose weight.

Leading the trial, senior lecturer in obstetrics, Dr Andrew Weeks, said: “It is about trying to improve outcomes in pregnancy for women who are overweight.

“The problem is babies tend to be larger and many of the downsides of being overweight during pregnancy relate to the birth.”

Doctors nationwide have observed a glaring increase in incidence of heart attack and stroke during the holidays.

Dr. Dante Morales, Society of Hypertension president, said incidence of heart attack and stroke commonly surges during December and January and peaks on Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Many of those patients die even before reaching the hospitals or just days after suffering stroke and heart attack,” he said.

Morales said recent studies done abroad have indicated a sharp increase in cases of heart attack and stroke during the holiday season.

In this episode, Kelli Desante of Body Biotics shares how SBO's and Probiotics can positively impact your health by focusing on the most negative factor in your health. The Body Biotic SBO's along with Fulvic Acid chelates or pulls the heavy metal toxins our of your body.

Informed observers know that severe immune dysfunction is caused by compromised digestion and elimination. And this is from the lack of probiotic type, beneficial gut bacteria.

At the turn of the 20th century, nobel laureate Elias Metchnikoff, PhD discovered many immune system components, and he saw the direct correlation between health, longevity, and the proper balance of beneficial microorganisms in the body.

750 MIllion people worldwide are iron deficient. Many do not have bio-available iron.

In one way or another, iron is essential to most forms of life. It is the most abundant transition-metal in living organisms and is endowed with unique properties that enable it to both initiate and participate in certain paramount chemical reactions. Though iron is very important in the metabolism of many life forms, in humans its chief usefulness is addressed to redox mechanisms, of which the most important is breathing.

Keep your "inner body" healthy.

Since 1981, more than 20,000 people have consumed Life Science SBO Probiotic formulas.

Over time, they bred superior strains of the SBOs that produced positive reactions such as:

  • more satisfying bowel movements
  • improved sleep patterns
  • fewer colds and flu
  • greater amounts of energy.

The soil-based organisms have been useful for the healing of some really serious illnesses. In an average of ninety days following their ingestion, specific morbid states for which the soil-based organisms have been taken by sick patients strictly as adjunctive healing agents, positive therapeutic results have been observed and reported anecdotally by both patients and doctors.

At the turn of the 20th century, nobel laureate Elias Metchnikoff, PhD discovered many immune system components, and he saw the direct correlation between health, longevity, and the proper balance of beneficial microorganisms in the body. Have you noticed the renewed interest in microbes, probably due to antibiotic-resistant bacteria that are invading hospitals, wreaking infectious havoc? Medical researchers are again looking at Dr. Metchnikoff's findings and refocusing their attention on the critical importance of probiotics in your gut and the whole human body.

"When soil-based organisms are ingested and deposited in the human gut, the principals remain the same as in the soil of a garden," says William Bryce, M.D., "except that the more complicated environment provides greater opportunity for influence within a living organism and the processes therein. Mammals are wrapped around their own organic garden (the gastrointestinal tract) and carry it with them."

AMERICANS SEEM TO ACCEPT POOR HEALTH AS A NORMAL consequence of aging, while many experience poor health while still young. Meanwhile, researchers continue to gather evidence affirming the importance of the gut to overall health.

More and more health professionals believe there is life and death in the long hollow tube called the "gastrointestinal tract." Dr. C. Everett Koop, former U.S. Surgeon General, indicated two out of three Americans suffer fatal health problems because of poor dietary choices. That means their problems are centered in their "gut":

What we eat may affect our risk for several of the leading causes of death for Americans, notably, coronary heart disease, stroke, atherosclerosis, diabetes, and some types of cancer. These disorders together now account for more than two-thirds of all deaths in the United States.'

The term Probiotic comes from Greek words meaning "for life," and refers to organisms such as the bacteria which contribute to the health and balance of the intestinal tract. The word, Probiotics, when used for descriptive purposes, covers all of those favorably disposed, healthy microorganisms such as the ones found in yogurt, kefir, sour milk, cheese, acidophilus milk, etc. They make up the major portion of the intestinal flora in a healthy person.

All of the nutrients coming from whole foods would by nature contain major antioxidants, tissue alkalizers, Friendly Microbes (+LAB), Amino Acids, Enzymes, Vitamins, Minerals, & Essential Fatty Acids. Friendly Microbes (+LAB) means that it's sourced from the food in which the product is made, and the true form in which we should get our good bacteria.

Friendly, living bacteria repopulate the lining of your GI Tract and help to cleanse away toxic buildup. Years of study and billions of dollars have been spent on trying to find out why we humans have been getting sick since we started cooking our food. It's because cooking your food kills life-giving enzymes and increases your potential for ill health.

"Enzyme-deficient bodies are prime targets for cancer, obesity, heart disease, or other degenerative problems." - Dr. Edward Howell (Enzyme Nutrition)

Lacto-Fermentation breaks down whole foods, to the very essence of their construction. We call this "predigested" and it's done with friendly microbes so that no digestion is required from your body. All grains and legumes are predigested and contain an active proprietary food sourced lactic acid bacteria culture.

Antibacterial soap

How about a little nerve toxin in your soap? That's what's found in antibacterial soap. It's a toxic cocktail of chemicals designed to kill life. That's how it kills bacteria. The problem is that it also harms people -- especially infants and children who are trying to develop healthy nervous systems. Avoid all products claiming to be "antibacterial."

You're better off using natural soap (like Miracle II, http://life-enthusiast.com/usa/miracle-ii-m-12.html) and letting your child's immune system fight off common bacteria. The world isn't sterile, after all. You can't turn your house into a germ-free bubble.

Fluoride in the water

I've always found it amazing that city water officials were dumb enough to actually buy a toxic waste substance and arrange to have it dripped into the public water supply where it would be ingested by infants and children.

The result?

Mass fluorosis and toxicity to children everywhere. Didn't these people realize that fluoride only works topically? (That is, it only works if you rub it on your teeth, then spit it out, and even that only works if you're using natural fluoride, not the chemicals spit out as byproducts of the fertilizer industry, which is what city water departments are buying and dripping into the water supply.)

Sunscreen

The sunscreen industry is a huge scam. Most popular sunscreen products actually cause skin cancer due to the numerous toxic chemicals they contain (which are quickly absorbed into the skin where they cause DNA mutations that lead to cancer).

Even worse, sunscreen blocks the UV radiation that allows the skin to manufacture all-important vitamin D -- the most powerful anti-cancer nutrient yet known to modern science.

It prevents over a dozen different cancers, yet parents block it by slathering toxic sunscreen on their children, all while mistakenly believing they're "protecting their children from cancer!" What a scam.

Martin visits the dentist. How sensitive are you to toxins? How can you absorb the proper nutrients you need? What is lurking in your water? If it is chlorine or bacteria, it will be ameliorated. No need to know what contaminant there is, Adya Clarity is there to fight the battle.

And while the minerals are clumping these impurities together, they are also activating the oxygen within the water.

What does oxygenated water mean? That it is ready to go to work in your body to provide oxygen for you.

We have come across a major breakthrough in detoxifying the human body of heavy metals and other toxins, and overall acid conditions that promote or directly cause disease.

According to the EPA, 70,000 chemicals are used commercially in the US, 65,000 of which are potentially hazardous to our health. We live in a virtual sea of pollutants, and carry many of these toxins within us. They can be found even in unborn children. A 2004 study by the Environmental Working Group identified 287 industrial chemicals in babies' umbilical-cord blood, including 180 known to cause cancer and 217 that are toxic to the brain and nervous system.

Thirty people were tested for depleted uranium (DU), a very serious worldwide radioactive contaminant resulting from DU armaments, which are used in Iraq. Of the 30 people tested, 28 had DU in at least one organ - the liver, breast, or brain - and 25 had DU in all three of these organs.

After one week on the study protocol, all these people became DU-free except one, who still tested positive for depleted uranium in the liver.


          Are You Addicted to Your Food? | Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast | Podcast #215

UNDER IDEAL CONDITIONS, EVERYONE WOULD BE BORN PERFECT and without flaws. In reality, we all carry genetic and metabolic weaknesses and are constantly bombarded and attacked by potentially harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and industrial toxins.

I'm convinced that we all have predetermined weaknesses in our bodies. Mine was the gut, but yours may be the lungs, the cardiovascular system, the blood, or the kidneys. If we eat unhealthy foods and adopt unwise lifestyles, we may well see these predetermined weaknesses present themselves as devastating symptoms.

Unfortunately, many of us exist in a state of subclinical illness (often unawares). That means we can't afford to go through life without taking certain precautions.

It's a common refrain: "I'm addicted to sugar."

Now a study by Princeton University psychologists suggests that such urges really may be a form of addiction, sharing some of the physiological characteristics of drug dependence. Although the term "sugar addiction" often appears in magazines and on television, scientists had not demonstrated that such a thing as sugar dependency really exists, said neuroscientist Bart Hoebel, who led the study.

Hoebel and colleagues studied rats that were induced to binge on sugar and found that they exhibited telltale signs of withdrawal, including "the shakes" and changes in brain chemistry, when the effects of the sweets were blocked.

These signs are similar to those produced by drug withdrawal. Sugar, said Hoebel, triggers production of the brain's natural opioids.

"We think that is a key to the addiction process," he said. "The brain is getting addicted to its own opioids as it would to morphine or heroin. Drugs give a bigger effect, but it is essentially the same process."

Metabolic Type

Many people come to my office eating very high-quality nutritious foods and are still quite sick. They haven't touched sugar or junk food in ages and still suffer with many health problems. There are a number of reasons for this, but one of the major physical ones is related to the fact that they are not eating appropriate foods for their metabolic type.

If you are interested in truly optimizing your health, your weight, and your energy -- and in avoiding premature aging -- one of the most important steps you should take is to learn your metabolic type and eat according to it. What may be very healthy for others is not necessarily as healthy for you, and vice-versa, and eating according to your metabolic type is really the only way to ascertain what is really good for you.

The master chemist portion of the liver metabolizes proteins, fats and carbohydrates providing energy and nutrients for the other systems of the body. It creates bile to help emulsify fats making them easier to break down into their fatty-acid components, works to maintain electrolyte (magnesium/calcium and potassium/sodium) levels, is involved in the formation and breakdown of blood and helps to maintain water balance by producing serum proteins. As a supply office, the liver will provide extra blood on demand in case of a critical situation. It also stores fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. As a fuel storage facility, it stores B vitamins, minerals and sugars. The latter are stored as a reserve sugar called glycogen which is meant to be released when blood stores of available glucose become low due to exercise, stress or delayed eating. Functioning as the major detoxifying organ of the body, the liver is responsible for filtering the blood and removing harmful bacteria and chemicals including the breakdown and elimination of excess hormones. This function of your liver has been dramatically overburdened within the last two generations because of the impact of our polluting technologies and lifestyle habits: unending stress, poor diet, alcohol & drugs and environmental toxins.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> Assimilation and elimination are the two key stones that make us tick. Edgar Cayce said that if we could control these aspects of the human form, we could extend life to whatever we chose, that's how important these two principles are. Assimilation Assimilation is defined as the measure of the ability of any body to utilize foods we eat. Some people think that having massive doses of food will give them all they need. They could not be more wrong: it is all right shoving nutrition in but it is quite another thing if the body can absorb it and use it in that form. Typical assimilation rates might vary from 20% to 80% and nutrition supplied in some forms will not be absorbed at all. That means out of every 454 grams of food you might only absorb 20-80% of that. What happens to the food after you swallow it depends to a large degree on the other three principles of your body, namely circulation, relaxation and elimination. Circulation is crucial if assimilation is to be maintained at high levels. Circulation is helped greatly by some important factors; exercise, especially cardiovascular. Apparently something like 50 or so times as many blood vessels open up when exercising than just sitting. We have about 60,000 miles of vessels, mostly capillary type, so you can imagine the effect of increased blood flow. Massage, hydrotherapy treatments and osteopathic adjustments help because the blood stream carries the rebuilding forces to the body in these channels. They need to be clear and stimulated so that the blood will flow to feed the cells and tissues. Elimination Every activity your body does produces waste. We get rid of that waste through the skin, the lungs, the kidneys and the intestines. Major problems start to occur when any of these important channels are stopped from doing their job. We start to accumulate waste, bacteria start growing at alarming rates which leads to all sorts of problems as we become toxic. Imagine not cleaning up the kitchen very often -leaving waste- what would happen, your kitchen would become literally alive with all sorts of creepy bacteria. The same with your body. The fact that poor elimination is the most cited cause of disease within the Edgar Cayce research papers totaling over 14,000 gives you some idea just how important this aspect really is. It gives you an idea of the importance of getting rid of toxins, rid of waste from our bodies. Some of the diseases which elimination problems either cause or play a big and major part include: Arthritis, Acne, Anemia, Apoplexy-stroke, Appendicitis, Asthenia, Asthma, Atrophy, Balding-poor circulation, Bladder stricture, Blepharitis, Some cases of blindness, Boils, Brain tumors -poor circulation, Bronchitis, Bursitis, Cancers and tumors, Skin cancer, Canker sores and herpes simplex, Cataracts, Cirrhosis, Colds, Colic-poor assimilation, Colitis, Colon impaction, Complexion problems, Cystitis, Cysts, Some cases of deafness, Dermatitis, Eczema, Edema, Enteritis, Feet swelling, Gall bladder -gall stones, Halitosis-bad breath, Headaches general, Hemorrhoids, Hepatitis, Hernia, Herpes zoster, Unwanted hair, Indigestion, Insomnia, Iritis, Kidney problems, Laryngitis, Leukemia, Lumbago, Lupus, Lymphangitis, Malaria, Measles, Menopause problems, Migraine, Some cases of myopia, Polyps, Nephritis, Neuritis, Oophoritis, Phlebitis, Pneumonia problems, Poison ivy, Prostatitis, Pruritus, Psoriasis, Purpura, Pyorrhea, Rheumatic fever, Sarcoma, Sciatica, Rheumatism, Scolliosis -eliminations were a cause and an effect, Seborrhea, Skin ulcers, Female/ male sterility, Streptococcus infection, Tic douloureux, Tonsillitis, Torticollis, Ulcers, Vaginitis, Varicose veins, Vertigo-some cases, Xeroderma So if you are suffering from any of these complaints it is highly likely that you could be helped by increasing your body's ability to rid itself of toxins and wastes. It is as simple as that. Phenomenal results have been obtained from increasing your eliminations. Peoples lives have literally been turned around.

The Triumvirate of Disease The three-headed monster that causes untold suffering - degenerative and inflammatory disease - for millions of us can be conquered. You can directly influence it with your choices. It is not easy, because the mainstream culture conspires against you. From your earliest days you are taught to behave in ways that will haunt you later. It starts with well meaning doctors injecting you with toxic vaccinations, good relatives using sweets-as-rewards, the food processors adding neurotoxins to your drink or food, farmers growing hollow foods on depleted soils, grocers soaking their carrots in chlorinated water to keep them clean, teachers sterilizing every surface with anti-bacterials, soap makers adding "fragrance" to your detergent, and everybody else asking you to sit, take a ride, and avoid hard work. What you get is... Toxicity, Malnutrition, & Stagnation There are two ways the combination of these three major influences will translate into your life: either through a massive catastrophic event, or through a slow incremental set of changes. You can think either of an earthquake, or a slow drip that builds a stalactite in a cave. Another great saying that illustrates it well is the "straw that broke the camel's back."

          Breathing, Eating and Tight Clothing | Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast - Podcast #135   
The Maker gave you two lungs with an amazing air capacity. Unfortunately, most of us use only a fraction of our lung capacity, and we suffer for it. Infants are instinctive "belly breathers;" but most of us have learned to breathe from our chest in short, shallow breaths that resemble a pant more than a deep breath. The body (and the brain and nervous system in particular) thrives on abundant oxygen. Proper breathing relieves stress and lowers blood pressure. Breathe from the abdomen or "belly" instead of from the chest. If your stomach moves outward when you take a deep breath (and any breath for that matter), then you have learned the secret of breathing fully from the diaphragm. Chewing is extremely important to proper digestion. The chewing reflex signals the body to release saliva containing the salivary enzyme ptyalin, a form of amylase, which begins to break down carbohydrates. Parotid glands behind the ears signal the thymus gland to produce T cells just in case the food contains toxins or pathogens. The ultimate goal of the process is to deliver food to the stomach in a liquid state. The body's lymph system is absolutely crucial to the immune system. It is the first line of defense against cancer cells, toxins, and viral and bacterial attacks. Lymph nodes that are compressed or blocked by tight underclothing such as bras or other tight clothing may not allow the lymph system to be properly cleansed. It is conceivable that this may help contribute to the development or proliferation of cancer in the body. Women should not wear bras to bed.

          Protect Your Skin | Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast - Podcast #131   
Beware of skin care products that cause harm by destroying the skin's natural pH and by introducing dangerous toxins to the body. Hair-coloring products used by approximately 40 percent of U.S. women, particularly brown and black hair products, are associated with increased incidence of Hodgkin's lymphoma, multiple myeloma, Hodgkin's disease, and 20 percent of all non-Hodgkin's lymphoma! (There are several brands of natural hair-coloring products that are relatively safe.) Also avoid products containing DEA or TEA-these ingredients often contain carcinogenic nitrosamine impurities. Toluene, a neurotoxic substance that triggers asthma attacks and causes asthma in previously unaffected people, was found in every fragrance sample tested by the EPA in 1991. The fragrance industry routinely uses 884 toxic substances. As for shampoos, many of the most common ingredients break down into formaldehyde.15 For detailed information on things to avoid and where to find good alternatives, see The Safe Shopper's Bible and Diet for a Poisoned Planet. As for antibacterial soaps, most of them contain triclosan, which may be absorbed through the skin and pose a risk to the liver. Plenty of regular soap, sufficiently heated running water, and thorough scrubbing will do the job just as well with no side effects. Clenzology is the best cleansing plan I've found to date.

          How to Get Sick > Part 3 > Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast - Podcast #127   
Continuing our discussion of all the things we do that bring on illness in our society. In this episode we talk about: 1. Don't breast feed your baby. Mothers, consider breastfeeding your children if you don't want them to risk the trauma of numerous childhood diseases and if you don't want to pay the hospital bills. It will also reduce your risk of developing breast cancer by 25 percent, and it may lower the risk of postpartum depression! Mother's milk contains cells that attack harmful bacteria in the baby's system, and it is able to form antibodies that destroy invading viruses as well. Mother's milk is the Maker's perfect food for babies, delivered in the close bonds of maternal intimacy.10 2. Get tattoos. Scripture warns against piercing the skin. (See Leviticus 19:28.) Body piercing and tattoos can easily introduce potentially deadly infections and toxic foreign substances into the body and bloodstream. Some health providers warn that even tiny puncture wounds might block important electrical nerve impulses just under the skin. 3. Get all of your immunization shots. Despite massive media and government public relations campaigns to the contrary, certain childhood immunization injections may pose considerable risks to children. Most adults today received one to five immunizations in childhood, but schoolchildren today receive an average of twenty-two or more immunizations-most of them administered while the brain and nervous system are still developing! An epidemic of juvenile autism and other neurological and developmental disorders sweeping through America's school-age children generally coincides with the introduction of certain mandatory immunizations. A growing body of scientific and medical research appears to link this dangerous health trend to these childhood immunizations. Vijendra K. Singh, Ph.D., an eminent neuroimmunologist from the Department of Biology and Biotechnology Center at Utah State University, hypothesized in research published internationally "that a measles virus-induced autoimmune response is a causal factor in autism, whereas HHV-6 via co-infection may contribute to pathophysiology of the disorder. Although as yet unproven, I think it is an excellent working hypothesis to explain autism, arid it may also help us understand why some children show autistic regression after the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) immunization.11 Dr. Singh's findings seem to Confirm the results of a similar study published in the Lancet in 1998 by Dr. Andrew Wakefield and co-workers of the Royal Free Hospital in London, indicating a possible link between MMR vaccination, Crohn's disease of the bowel, and autism.12 Most states allow philosophical and religious exemptions from mandatory immunization programs should you decide this is the way to go. 4. Travel in airplanes often. Some people who spend a lot of time at high altitudes experience problems with infertility and oxygen production in the body. The body adapts well to high altitudes for short periods of time, but not for long periods. Animals dwelling at heights of thirteen to fourteen thousand feet have much more difficulty conceiving and instinctively return to lower pastures for breeding. Some researchers believe the atmospheric pressures and radiation to which airplane travelers are exposed are the equivalent of hundreds of CAT scans and pose the greatest oxidative stress on the human body.13 (Who wants to be trapped in a small room with hundreds of sneezing, coughing people?)

          How to Get Sick Part Two | Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast - Podcast #126   
Our second episode on how to get sick. 1. Use fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash, and drink fluoridated water. Fluoride is extremely poisonous-especially the salt-based form used in toothpaste and mouthwash. (Besides, its effectiveness is questionable at best.) A top EPA scientific advisor voiced the opinion that "since recent federal government tests have shown that fluoride appears to cause cancers at levels less than ten times the present maximum contamination level, this would ordinarily require that all additions of fluoride to water supplies be suspended and treatment be instituted to remove naturally occurring fluoride." That would be enough warning for me! (By the way, I have no evidence that the EPA ever suspended fluoridation operations.) Choose nonfluoridated alternatives for oral hygiene and be safe. 2. Use artificial sweeteners and avoid sugars. As bad as sugar can be in its various forms, artificial sweeteners are worse! Some are downright deadly because of their carcinogenic properties and their use it such high-volume products as diet soft drinks and sugar-free foods. Chief among sinners is aspartame, which is marketed as NutraSweet or Equal. Renowned diabetes expert Dr. H. J. Roberts believes there is a clear scientific link between aspartame and increased incidence of brain tumors, seizure disorders, chronic headaches, and hyperactivity in children. As for saccharin, the cancer-causing labels that accompany its use still apply. The newcomer on the block is sucralose (used in Splenda), but the jury of scientific research still seems to be awaiting further testimony on this one. (If the Maker didn't produce it "as is," then it probably isn't much better than the other synthetic sugar substitutes.) 3. Shower every day, but don't bathe (take a bath). Excessive showering-even in the purest water-can actually rob your hair and body of the natural oils.8 It can also alter your body's pH (especially if you're using certain alkaline shampoos and soaps). Then you have the added problem of heavily chlorinated public water supplies (see below). If the Maker has a preference, it might be the use of ritual bathing that combined bathing (washing in a shallow bath) with sprinkling (showering for brief periods). This combination is especially beneficial for the thorough but gentle cleansing recommended for the female genital area. 4. Swim in chlorinated pools (and drink and shower with chlorinated water). Chlorine is an effective bacteria killer, although some strains of bacteria are developing a resistance to chlorine. Unfortunately, chlorine is an indiscriminate killer that kills both friendly and unfriendly bacteria. It also eats through lead pipes, corrodes most metals, and harms cells and DNA strands in virtually every living thing it touches. Chlorine also introduces to our water supplies some highly carcinogenic chemicals called trihalomethanes (THMs). Studies show a strong link between chlorinated water supplies with elevated THM levels and cancers of the bladder, kidney, liver, pancreas, gastrointestinal tract, urinary tract, colon, and brain.9 It is risky enough to drink chlorinated tap water, but the mass exposure created by swimming in chlorinated pools or taking extended hot showers in heavily chlorinated water is much more dangerous. (The heat opens skin pores and increases the already high absorption rate of chlorine through the skin.) Dogs exposed to chlorine (this is the ingredient used to bleach white bread) get the running fits, a disorder similar to many psychiatric Each week Martin Pytela and Scott Paton discuss Holistic principles for healthy living.

If we eat unhealthy foods and adopt unwise lifestyles, we may well see these predetermined weaknesses present themselves as devastating symptoms. Unfortunately, many of us exist in a state of subclinical illness (often unawares). That means we can't afford to go through life without taking certain precautions. Today we cover 4 ways to get sick... Each week Martin Pytela and Scott Paton discuss Holistic principles for healthy living.

          Organic Silica | Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast - Podcast #120   
When we call Orgono Silica organic, we do not mean that it comes from organic agriculture or a specific plant source. In chemistry, the term "organic" means the molecule includes a linked carbon atom. In its natural form, silica is inorganic and is not assimilable by humans. To be absorbable, it needs to be organic (with a carbon atom within its structure). The discovery of organic silica unfolded in this way: Loic Le Ribault found that some quartz crystals contain amorphous silica that was soluble in water. After studying many samples he proved the frequent presence of micro organisms such as bacteria and diatoms, on the surface of certain grains of sand. Your body can absorb and utilize organic based minerals much better than inorganic. This is why we eat plants, fruits and vegetables, they contain organic nutrients. Plants use inorganic minerals from the soil and store them as organic minerals. When we ingest plants, we are getting organic minerals the way nature intended it.

          Raspberries | Alternative Health | Life Enthusiast Podcast - Podcast #88   
Your body has the ability to dissolve cancerous and pre-cancerous cells within a few days, and to replace them with young and healthy cells. However, you must feed & activate the responsible cellular mechanism, with the exact nutrient, in the potency it requires. This can be done naturally. With the exact nutrients and potencies in Exsula EllagiPlex, you can feed and activate your natural mechanisms to kill pre-cancerous and cancerous cells. It contains an extra fine (micronized) grind of raspberry seeds to promote assimilation. They are blended with synergists to enable efficient conversion of ellagitannins to ellagic acid in your body. Raspberries contain one of the most powerful antioxidants known; a series of ellagatannins which are converted into ellagic acid in your body. Many fruits contain ellagatannins, but your body cannot convert all sources into useable, beneficial levels of ellagic acid. Ellagic Acid has the ability to inhibit mutations within a cell's DNA, causing apoptosis (normal death) in cancer cells. In addition, research has found that it has anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Raspberries are one of the few sources of ellagatannins that your body can transform into useful levels of ellagic acid. The very best way to get the ellagic acid is with extra fine ground raspberry seeds, combined with synergists. Find this ellagic acid in Exsula EllagiPlex.

The main drawback to going out and indulging in an ice cream cone is that you can’t share your confectionery treat with your dog (which is really hard cause they look at you with those big, trusting eyes and the betrayal in their face when you don’t end up sharing that ice cream cone with them is just too gut-wrenching to bear). But Don Palleto, an ice cream shop in Mexico City, is catering to the appetites of ice cream cone coveting canines.

The shop offers a dog-friendly ice cream (which dogs can eat off a stick, in a cone, or from a cup) is made from natural yogurt and lactobacilli bacteria which helps with digestion, whereas regular ice cream can cause diarrhea and indigestion in pups. And the ice cream is also safe for humans so you and your favorite four-legged friend can enjoy a sweet treat together!

          General Mills Recalls Millions Of Pounds Of Flour Milled In Kansas City   
Food giant General Mills is recalling millions of pounds of flour milled in Kansas City, Missouri, on suspicions that the product is contaminated by a dangerous strain of E. coli bacteria. Thirty-eight people in 20 states have been infected in the outbreak, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention . Ten have been hospitalized. An ongoing investigation by local, state and federal health authorities determined that General Mills’ facility on Guinotte Ave. in northeast Kansas City is a likely source of this outbreak. The recalled flour was primarily produced at that facility, the company says. E. coli is a common bacteria but can be killed by adequate cooking. Many of those taken ill reported having eaten raw flour – found in cookie dough, for instance. Flour, made from wheat, is a raw agricultural commodity and may come in contact with animals and the bacteria they carry. That means it must be treated with the care of other raw products, said Dr. Fadi Aramouni, a
          Rising Livestock Antibiotic Sales Cause Concern   
Sales of antibiotics for livestock have been steadily rising over the past few years, reports The Rural Blog . Antibiotic sales increased 23 percent from 2009 to 2014, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Last year, they rose another three percent. The increase in sales has raised concerns about risks to humans from antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to Reuters. Public health advocates, along with some lawmakers and scientists, have criticized the long-standing practice of using antibiotics in livestock. They argue it is fueling the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. But many farmers and ranchers insist the practice is necessary to help keep cattle, pigs and chickens healthy. They say the drugs help increase meat production for U.S. consumers.
          AMA seeks ban on antibiotics for weight gain   
The largest association of U.S. physicians is calling for tighter rules on antibiotic use in livestock. The American Medical Association (AMA) says there should be an outright federal ban on using antibiotics to plump up farm animals. Last year, the Food and Drug Administration asked pharmaceutical companies to voluntarily phase out the use of antimicrobial drugs that promote growth in livestock. The overuse of antibiotics is problematic because it can lead to strains of bacteria resistant to treatment, often called “super bugs.” Mike Apley , a professor of veterinary medicine at Kansas State University, says that can happen by constantly exposing animals to antimicrobials. The concern is that by adding antimicrobial drugs to livestock at a low dose, “we would select for the resistant organisms that would then pass through the environment or the food chain and into humans,” he said. Apley says the dosage of antibiotics used for growth-promotion is actually less likely to select for

          Could studying deaf horses shed light on treatment in humans?   

Over the years, Chemistry Prof. Koren Lipsett has owned and rescued horses. Today, they are a focus of her research on deafness in humans.

“My research lab focuses on genomic studies so we can understand human disease,” said Lipsett.

Prof. LipsettSo far, Lipsett and her students have looked at blind cats, fibroblast growth factor (hair length) in cattle, and for the past seven years, deafness in horses. They hope by researching these issues and genetic diseases in large mammals, it will help researchers better understand how to treat human genetic disorders, like congenital blindness and deafness.

Suzanne E. DiNello-Schleicher ’10, a biology and chemistry double major who is today a veterinarian, was the inspiration behind the horse project. One day in Lipsett’s lab, she was doing some preliminary research on the Internet and came across a story about a deaf colt.

“Because she’s a horse person and a vet person, she said, ‘maybe we can pursue this,’” said Lipsett. “Well it turns out the family that owned that particular horse also had the parents and siblings in this pedigree of Spanish Mustangs. Not just one offspring was deaf. There were two deaf offspring that came from the same stallion and two different mares. So that started the project.”

Working with larger mammals has its benefits, Lipsett says. For one, large mammals, as opposed to mice and rats, live longer. If, during transitional research, researchers are completing a treatment study, this allows scientists to study long-term implications. It’s humane: Lipsett uses hair plucked from the horse’s mane. It’s convenient: she uses her own horse and horses from the SPCA as experimental controls. She is currently working with a family from Virginia who owned deaf horses with white coats and blue eyes—the phenotype that studies have shown to correlate with deafness in other animals, like the Siberian Husky.

This knowledge helped Lipsett’s lab narrow down their focus to a candidate gene called the KIT gene.

Prof. Lipsett in the lab

“In [other cases of mammals] that had deafness, white pigmentation, and blue eyes, it has come down to the KIT gene,” said Lipsett. “That particular gene is complex, but that’s not the only one that has been found—there are 5 or 6 genes that we identified as candidate genes. And our job is to methodically go through, sequencing those genes, to see if we can find the mutation.”

The process involves examining the gene’s exons, the segments of the DNA that contain the coding information, or set of instructions, that translate to the protein of interest, for example.

Benjamin Gantz ’16 was responsible for examining exon-21 in the KIT gene. They ran into several issues with designing primers, which is the first step to sequencing a gene.

“Ben got to a point where we understood where the problem was, and by the time he graduated we a had a good understanding of what to do next,” said Lipsett.

“Ben would say, ‘wow, I’m doing real science,’ and I’d say, ‘You've been doing real science the whole time!’ Because you need to think outside the box. There’s no canned answer.”

“Many students have worked on this project before me. It was amazing to be able to pick up where they left off and continue this research,” echoed Gantz. “In independent research labs like Dr. Lipsett's, you are determining the answers to questions that no one on the planet knows. Other scientists may use our research to further their own understanding or study, but our findings will be a starting point for them.”

Over the years, several students have worked on pieces of the project that have been published, like Kaytie Innamorati ’14, who is currently conducting research on Alzheimer’s Disease as a Ph.D. candidate at Drexel University. She is listed as a co-author on the abstract, “Determining the genetic basis of equine deafness via candidate gene studies.” Also, Alecia Achimovich ’16, a Ph.D. candidate at The University of Virginia, is a co-author with Kaytie on a recent abstract.

Prof. Koren Lipsett working in the lab

Today, Lipsett says the research is at the point where they have narrowed down which genes to focus on, and now it’s about consolidating the data order to identify a putative gene mutation. As with the blind cat study, the next step will be to explore the mechanism of pathology that will help define how the gene mutation translated to disease symptoms like blindness or deafness.

“We care about this because we can directly correlate it to human studies,” said Lipsett. “The more we understand the gene function in a mammal model, the more likely we can understand the equivalent function in humans. Then, we can apply that knowledge to characterize and potentially treat the genetic disorder.”

A biological career pathway

Lipsett didn’t start working with DNA until she came to Gettysburg. But looking at her journey, the path to that research seemed inevitable.

“I loved biochemistry in college,” she said. “I didn’t do genomics, I did protein studies. It’s related to the biological system, and that’s what’s exciting to me. My work evolved slowly, as in any research career. You don’t necessarily stay in the same track, but your research takes you down new tracks and lets you solve cool new problems.”

Prof. Koren LipsettDuring Lipsett’s postdoctoral research at Johns Hopkins University, she studied metabolic pathways at the genomic level and how specific genes, and the gene products, participate in a given biological pathway. She and her colleagues worked on identifying the gene corresponding to an enzyme involved in the aflatoxin biosynthetic pathway in fungus, furthering their understanding of the pathways in natural product biosynthesis. For example, aflatoxins are a family of carcinogenic toxins that are produced by fungi and can be found contaminating grain and peanuts (peanut butter). Aflatoxin can cause liver cancer. In the United States, we screen our crops for the contaminant, but other countries might not.

“My interest is studying these pathways,” she said. Because nature produces antifungal, anticancer and antibacterial agents, she asks questions like, What structural features of the molecule inhibit growth, and How can we modify and make a better antifungal [agent]?

“By applying knowledge gained from understanding the biosynthetic pathway, and the genes involved in that pathway, one can learn from nature and perhaps make the next new therapeutic drug based on that knowledge,” she said. “Learning from nature is really cool!”

Lipsett describes herself as “jumping” into mitochondrial DNA. Her mitochondrial genomic studies began with looking at genomic variations in mitochondrial DNA, some of which have been identified as causing mitochondrial myopathies.

Plucking Patent

This past January, Lipsett received some exciting news: A letter notifying her that she was issued a United States patent for the “Isolation and Characterization of a Single Mitochondron.”

Lipsett explained that one characteristic of mitochondria is that it contains multiple copies of the mitochondrial genome, and each cell can contain many mitochondria.

“If there is a mutation in one copy of the genome, and there are 100 copies total, the other 99 copies are fine,” she said. “So why should one copy interfere with the cell?” Her questions led to studies to learn more about how that one modified copy becomes the predominant version, and therefore, causative of mitochondrial disease symptoms.

She and her colleagues at the National Institute of Standards and Technology designed a technique using what is described as “optical tweezers” that can trap and then isolate a single mitochodrion using an infrared laser.  

Lipsett decided to apply for the patent after speaking with one of her former research students.

“Christian Bauer ’97, a biochemistry and molecular biology major, went to get his master’s in forensic science,” said Lipsett. Bauer continued his education and became a patent attorney. “He was visiting to speak with students for a career panel, and he said, ‘apply for a patent—that’s intellectual property!’”

Lipsett switched gears and began examining nuclear—as opposed to the mitochondrial—genomic variations. During a sabbatical at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, her research path transitioned to examining pedigrees of large mammals in order to identify the gene responsible for a specific disease.

“I like learning new tools for finding that needle in the haystack, that Eureka moment,” she said. “We haven’t found it yet in the deafness project, but we’ve gathered enough information from this deaf horse study to think it’s more complex than just one gene.”

          Sanitary quality of surface water during base-flow conditions in the Municipality of Caguas, Puerto Rico, 2014–15: A comparison with results from a similar 1997–99 study   

A study was conducted in 2014–15 by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Municipality of Caguas, to determine if changes in the stream sanitary quality during base-flow conditions have occurred since 1997–99, when a similar study was completed by the USGS. Water samples were collected for the current study during two synoptic surveys in 2014 and 2015. Water samples were analyzed for fecal and total coliform bacteria, nitrate plus nitrite as nitrogen, nitrogen and oxygen isotopes of nitrate, and human health and pharmaceutical products. Water sampling occurred at 39 stream locations used during the 1997–99 study by the USGS and at 11 additional sites. A total of 151 stream miles were classified on the basis of fecal and total coliform bacteria results.

The overall spatial pattern of the sanitary quality of surface water during 2014–15 is similar to the pattern observed in 1997–99 in relation to the standards adopted by the Puerto Rico Environmental Quality Board in 1990. Surface water at most of the water-sampling sites exceeded the current standard for fecal coliform of 200 colonies per 100 milliliters adopted by the Puerto Rico Environmental Quality Board in 2010. The poorest sanitary quality was within the urban area of the Municipality of Caguas, particularly in urban stream reaches of Río Caguitas and in rural and suburban reaches bordered by houses in high density that either have inadequate septic tanks or discharge domestic wastewater directly into the stream channels. The best sanitary quality occurred in areas having little or no human development, such as in the wards of San Salvador and Beatriz to the south and southwest of Caguas, respectively. The concentration of nitrate plus nitrite as nitrogen ranged from 0.02 to 9.0 milligrams per liter, and did not exceed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency drinking-water standard for nitrate as nitrogen of 10 milligrams per liter. The composition of nitrogen and oxygen isotopes of nitrate indicates that the origin of nitrate in the streams is most likely animal and human waste. A baseline was established for the concentrations of selected human health and pharmaceutical products at stations in some of the streams within the Municipality of Caguas. Thirty-eight human health and pharmaceutical products were present at or above the measurement detection level.

          Biological soil crusts: Diminutive communities of potential global importance   

Biological soil crusts (biocrusts) are widespread, diverse communities of cyanobacteria, fungi, lichens, and mosses living on soil surfaces, primarily in drylands. Biocrusts can locally govern primary production, soil fertility, hydrology, and surface energy balance, with considerable variation in these functions across alternate community states. Further, these communities have been implicated in Earth system functioning via potential influences on global biogeochemistry and climate. Biocrusts are easily destroyed by disturbances and appear to be exceptionally vulnerable to warming temperatures and altered precipitation inputs, signaling possible losses of dryland functions with global change. Despite these concerns, we lack sufficient spatiotemporal data on biocrust function, cover, and community structure to confidently assess their ecological roles across the extensive dryland biome. Here, we present the case for cross-scale research and restoration efforts coupled with remote-sensing and modeling approaches that improve our collective understanding of biocrust responses to global change and the ecological roles of these diminutive communities at global scales.


          Shifting brucellosis risk in livestock coincides with spreading seroprevalence in elk   

Tracking and preventing the spillover of disease from wildlife to livestock can be difficult when rare outbreaks occur across large landscapes. In these cases, broad scale ecological studies could help identify risk factors and patterns of risk to inform management and reduce incidence of disease. Between 2002 and 2014, 21 livestock herds in the Greater Yellowstone Area (GYA) were affected by brucellosis, a bacterial disease caused by Brucella abortus, while no affected herds were detected between 1990 and 2001. Using a Bayesian analysis, we examined several ecological covariates that may be associated with affected livestock herds across the region. We showed that livestock risk has been increasing over time and expanding outward from the historical nexus of brucellosis in wild elk on Wyoming’s feeding grounds where elk are supplementally fed during the winter. Although elk were the presumed source of cattle infections, occurrences of affected livestock herds were only weakly associated with the density of seropositive elk across the GYA. However, the shift in livestock risk did coincide with recent increases in brucellosis seroprevalence in unfed elk populations. As increasing brucellosis in unfed elk likely stemmed from high levels of the disease in fed elk, disease-related costs of feeding elk have probably been incurred across the entire GYA, rather than solely around the feeding grounds. Our results suggest that focused disease mitigation in areas where seroprevalence in unfed elk is high could reduce the spillover of brucellosis to livestock. We also highlight the need to better understand the epidemiology of spillover events with detailed histories of disease testing, calving, and movement of infected livestock. Finally, we recommend using case-control studies to investigate local factors important to livestock risk.


          Using high-throughput DNA sequencing, genetic fingerprinting, and quantitative PCR as tools for monitoring bloom-forming and toxigenic cyanobacteria in Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon, 2013 and 2014   

Monitoring the community structure and metabolic activities of cyanobacterial blooms in Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon, is critical to lake management because these blooms degrade water quality and produce toxic microcystins that are harmful to humans, domestic animals, and wildlife. Genetic tools, such as DNA fingerprinting by terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (T-RFLP) analysis, high-throughput DNA sequencing (HTS), and real-time, quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), provide more sensitive and rapid assessments of bloom ecology than traditional techniques. The objectives of this study were (1) to characterize the microbial community at one site in Upper Klamath Lake and determine changes in the cyanobacterial community through time using T-RFLP and HTS in comparison with traditional light microscopy; (2) to determine relative abundances and changes in abundance over time of toxigenic Microcystis using qPCR; and (3) to determine relative abundances and changes in abundance over time of Aphanizomenon, Microcystis, and total cyanobacteria using qPCR. T-RFLP analysis of total cyanobacteria showed a dominance of only one or two distinct genotypes in samples from 2013, but results of HTS in 2013 and 2014 showed more variations in the bloom cycle that fit with the previous understanding of bloom dynamics in Upper Klamath Lake and indicated that potentially toxigenic Microcystis was more prevalent in 2014 than in years prior. The qPCR-estimated copy numbers of all target genes were higher in 2014 than in 2013, when microcystin concentrations also were higher. Total Microcystis density was shown with qPCR to be a better predictor of late-season increases in microcystin concentrations than the relative proportions of potentially toxigenic cells. In addition, qPCR targeting Aphanizomenon at one site in Upper Klamath Lake indicated a moderate bloom of this species (corresponding to chlorophyll a concentrations between approximately 75 and 200 micrograms per liter) from mid-June to mid-August, 2014. After August 18, the Aphanizomenon bloom was overtaken by Microcystis late in the season as microcystin concentrations peaked. Overall, results of this study showed how DNA-based, genetic methods may provide rapid and sensitive diagnoses for the presence of toxigenic cyanobacteria and that they are useful for general monitoring or ecological studies and identification of cyanobacterial community members in complex aquatic habitats. These same methods can also be used to simultaneously address spatial (horizontal and vertical) and temporal variation and under different conditions. Additionally, with some modifications, the same techniques can be applied to different sample types, including water, sediment, and tissue.


          Western bats as a reservoir of novel Streptomyces species with antifungal activity   

At least two-thirds of commercial antibiotics today are derived from Actinobacteria, more specifically from the genus Streptomyces. Antibiotic resistance and new emerging diseases pose great challenges in the field of microbiology. Cave systems, in which actinobacteria are ubiquitous and abundant, represent new opportunities for the discovery of novel bacterial species and the study of their interactions with emergent pathogens. White-nose syndrome is an invasive bat disease caused by the fungus Pseudogymnoascus destructans, which has killed more than six million bats in the last 7 years. In this study, we isolated naturally occurring actinobacteria from white-nose syndrome (WNS)-free bats from five cave systems and surface locations in the vicinity in New Mexico and Arizona, USA. We sequenced the 16S rRNA region and tested 632 isolates from 12 different bat species using a bilayer plate method to evaluate antifungal activity. Thirty-six actinobacteria inhibited or stopped the growth of P. destructans, with 32 (88.9%) actinobacteria belonging to the genus Streptomyces. Isolates in the genera Rhodococcus, Streptosporangium, Luteipulveratus, and Nocardiopsis also showed inhibition. Twenty-five of the isolates with antifungal activity against P. destructans represent 15 novel Streptomyces spp. based on multilocus sequence analysis. Our results suggest that bats in western North America caves possess novel bacterial microbiota with the potential to inhibit P. destructans.

          Espen's Science Birthday Party   
 Seeing as we're already in birthday mode, I thought I'd show you some pictures from the kids' birthday parties that both happened over the last few months. First up is Espen's science birthday party!

The theme of my life right now seems to be that I need to learn how to simplify things. I'm just too tired and grumpy to be really fun right now! So Espen's party was definitely a bit scaled back in a lot of ways.

To start with, instead of designing all of the invitations and party decor myself (or with the help of design savvy friends), I came across this fully printable, science party kit from Paper and Cake. The design was much closer to what I had in mind than anything I was able to find online (a lot of what I saw seemed to imply that you either have to be mad or nerdy to like science, which is honestly kind of lame), and I liked that it was such a complete package that I ponied up the cash and thanked my lucky stars that we have a decent printer.

The Birthday Boy himself liked his party, so that's a win. 

We kept the decorations really simple, and didn't really do much beyond this banner and a few signs here and there. In the past, we have always done helium balloons as decorations and party favors, but Espen and his friends just seemed a little too old for that this year (sniff, sniff). The kit comes with a million billion cute things you can cut out and make decorations from, but we just didn't feel the need for a 90 minute party for a gang of kindergarteners. As long as there is cake and friends, they're happy!

Goodness, this picture is awful, but it does show you what the banner looks like!

Bacteria blobs: jello and sprinkled in petri dishes.

While we kept our party decor simple, we did put some thought and effort into the food, including all the hokey names on the little labels. I tracked down some food-safe petri dishes (like these ones on Amazon, except I found them a little cheaper locally) and filled them with jello. Then we added sprinkles while the jello was still setting, so the colors bled and left a kind of cool, bacteria growth-looking effect. These were definitely the hit of the party!

Rice Crispy Clones.We just cut them as similarly sized as we could, and that made them cloney as could be. 

Our family also loves rice crispy treats, so we whipped up a quick pan of those, and they were gone before we knew it. I may, or may not have had a lot to do with that!

Purple protons: grapes. We removed the stalks so they would be easier to grab and look more sciency. 

I always like to add a lighter, healthier option, so we went with a bowl full of grapes. The kids didn't eat a ton of them, but the grown ups at the party (lead by the two pregnant ladies and Gwen) polished them off pretty quickly. I didn't get a picture, but we also had a bowl of popcorn (Molecular Munchies!) to counteract all of the sweet stuff. 

That's an Erlenmeyer flask! Apparently. 

Espen is really into citrus flavors these days, so I made him a lemon cake with layers of fresh strawberry jam (homemade, you guys!) and covered the whole thing in whipped cream. Then I babbled some instructions at Nick, who deftly drew this Erlenmeyer flask design and decorated it with sprinkles. You should know at this point, that one of my best friends in the whole world is the most incredible cake decorator, so I always feel like a complete idiot when I post pictures of anything I bake, but I'm going to declare this cake a success anyway. It was cute, fun, on theme and completely delicious, so I was very happy with it. 


Taking a break from the partying for cake and snacks.

 At 12 kids, this was the biggest birthday party we have thrown to date, and while Espen and his friends definitely loved it, it was kind of a mixed bag. On the one hand, they needed zero entertainment and were happy to just play and run around for the duration of the party. On the other hand, 90 minutes of rampaging five and six year-olds is enough to bring anyone to their knees! We had planned to do some fun science experiments with the kids, but quickly decided that it would be too hard to try to gather 12 kids and hold their attention long enough for anything other than cake and presents. So I think we'll keep activities like that to smaller parties in the future!

So many kids! Espen got a Lego kit as a gift, and everyone wanted to help build it.
So they all took turns placing one brick at a time!

Thanks for coming to Espen's laboratory!

When it was time to go home, we rounded everything off with party favors. My favorite part of those were these test tubes (These are similar, but again, I found them much, much cheaper locally). You can't really tell from the picture, but they're actually pretty tiny. So tiny, in fact, that the jelly beans I had planned to put in them wouldn't fit, and we had to go with M&M Minis instead. I love how they look, and also like that the kids got to take home something they could play with and reuse once the candy was gone.

Thanks for coming!


Then we bagged them up with a few other sciency little things, like glow sticks and little maze toys and a few other bits and pieces and slapped on a quick laboratory label and called it a party!

As I mentioned earlier, it was definitely a lot simpler than the parties I have thrown in the past, but I am learning that turning myself into a complete stress ball over these things isn't always the best thing. I do sort of regret not taking more and better pictures, but at the same time I don't regret that not picking up the camera meant that I was a much more present mom for Espen's party. My family loves it when I make an effort to make their birthday special, but they don't love it if it means that I'm grumpy and preoccupied for days before the party. So I'm learning to find that good balance!

Most importantly, Espen got to have a fun party with a lot (a lot!) of his friends and enjoy the special day he'd been looking forward to and planning since his last birthday. And, almost as importantly, we're off the hook until Gwen turns four in November - when she has decided she wants a Superman party!

























          Profesías de Nostradamus que no se cumplieron   
Sabio para algunos y farsante para otros, Michel de Notredame, mejor conocido como Nostradamus, nació el 14 de diciembre de 1503 en una pequeña localidad del sur de Francia, y desde su infancia destacó por su gran interés en la lectura y los idiomas, al mismo tiempo que su bisabuelo comenzó a instruirle en el campo que lo haría famoso: las ciencias astrales. Después de estudiar medicina y contraer matrimonio, Nostradamus comenzó a hacer uso de su presunta capacidad para predecir el futuro, logrando publicar desde horóscopos hasta almanaques. Durante su segundo matrimonio, Michael comenzó a emplear su “don de clarividencia” y conforme sus presagios se iban cumpliendo, su popularidad iba creciendo. Nostradamus falleció a la edad de 62 años, el 2 de julio de 1566, a causa de un edema, pero dejó una gran cantidad de profecías escritas, las cuales están recopiladas en 10 tomos que se conocen como Centurias, de los cuales cada uno se encuentra elaborado con 100 predicciones de 4 versos cada una. Como bien lo menciona el portal ehowenespanol.com, las predicciones de Nostradamussorprenden al mundo cada vez que un acontecimiento conmociona al planeta, pero muchos sus pronósticos no siempre se cumplen. Sin embargo, al hombre también hay que darle el beneficio de la duda, pues según información de diversos portales en la web, existen algunas profecías que sí se han cumplido, pues pronosticó desde la caída de las Torres Gemelas hasta la llegada de Hitler al poder, así lo menciona el portal ABC. Entre estas profecías sí cumplidas podemos encontrar las siguientes: El nacimiento de Napoleón Bonaparte y su posterior alzamiento como emperador de Francia. Las dos bombas atómicas que Estados Unidos lanzó sobre las ciudades japonesas de Hiroshima y Nagasaki. Asesinato del Presidente de los Estados Unidos John F. Kennedy y la muerte de su hermano, el senador Robert Kennedy, quien falleció después de la una de la madrugada. El nacimiento de Hitler y su subida al poder. Los trágicos atentados sucedidos el 11 de septiembre de 2001 en E.U. cuando dos aviones chocaron contra las Torres Gemelas de Nueva York. El fin del mundo Es una de las más famosas del profeta, pero parece que no le atinó al año, pues en una de sus cuartetas afirmaba que “en el séptimo mes del año 1999 desde el cielo vendrá el gran rey del terror”, lo que muchos interpretaron como el fin, que no sucedió. La Tercera Guerra Mundial Según Nostradamus, ésta se iniciaría el 6 de septiembre de 2006, sin embargo no sucedió; además firmó que el año siguiente habría una pestilencia de la que ni jóvenes ni viejos ni bestias sobrevivirían, y tampoco sucedió. Su propia muerte Sí, por increíble que parezca Nostradamus intentó adivinar la fecha de su muerte. Predijo que iba a morir en noviembre de 1567, no obstante, Nostradamus murió a causa de un edema en julio de 1566, casi un año antes de lo que él mismo dijo. El Papa asesinado Como parte de su vaticinio de atentados en Italia, Nostradamus había previsto que para 2010 el Papa Benedicto XVI iba a ser atacado y muerto por una mujer. Algunos tienen sospechas de que esta profecía recae sobre la dudosa muerte de Juan Pablo I en 1978 Muerte de Juan Pablo II Según otra de sus profecías, el Papa iba a morir en la isla de Capri tras huir del Vaticano a causa de una invasión rusa, ya que iba a ser capturado e incinerado, sin embargo, Juan Pablo II murió en 2005 por causas naturales. Virus mortal En sus cuartetas, el astrologo anunciaba que para el año 2011 la humanidad entera sería víctima de una pandemia desencadenada por una guerra bacteriológica causada por armas químicas. El anticristo Según Nostradamus, el anticristo destruiría a tres países importantes en una larga guerra de aproximadamente 27 años, la cual comenzaría en 1999 y terminaría hasta el año 2026. Fin de España El profeta postuló que España iba a ser cautivada por el jefe del estado libio. Muchos seguidores del astrólogo francés creían que esta cuarteta estaba centrada en la figura de Muamar Gadafi, líder durante más de 42 de Libia y que fue asesinado en 2011. Caída de París El astrologo predijo que hacia 1999 en Francia iba a ser restaurada la monarquía. Según Nostradamus, a partir de ese momento, comenzaría la debacle en el país que iba a materializarse con sucesivas invasiones de los musulmanes.

          The 5 Foods a Holistic Health Counselor Always Keeps in Her Kitchen   

As a nutrition and holistic health counselor, I'm asked constantly for my best kept secrets when it comes to natural supplements and tips to staying healthy. The larger secret is, unfortunately, that there is no silver bullet when it comes to creating instant health — it takes routine and repetition to create lasting and visible results and a strong immune system to fight back.

However, there are a few spotlight ingredients and go-to remedies that I rely on again and again, especially as we transition into Fall and Winter. These especially tumultuous seasons are hard on the body as our immune systems seem to be constantly bombarded by friends and employees playing telephone with the latest cold or flu going around. But the change of seasons doesn't have to mean waiting for the inevitable cold to hit.

While some of these need to be repeated regularly to really see their lasting benefit, there are a few gems that I swear by and always keep on hand. As basic as they many seem, keep in mind immunity starts in the gut, and proper nutrition is the first line of defense.

ADVERTISEMENT

Here are my top five kitchen pantry wellness staples to bolster immunity and staying well throughout the colder months to come.

1. Bone Broth

Yup, the same stuff your mom or grandmother used to make. I'm not talking about the canned or boxed stuff though. Head to your local farmers market or trusted butcher and source the best quality, organic, antibiotic-free, free-ranged, pastured chicken, beef, or even bison bones, gristle, and cartilage you can to make your own at home. The quality of their diet and lifestyle ultimately is what you will be benefiting from, so it does make a big difference. These bones supply the building blocks not just for your own bones, muscles, and connective tissues, but basic essential vitamins and minerals, like calcium and magnesium, that most of us are extremely low in today. We also have an easier time utilizing these nutrients from naturally occurring ingredients vs. vitamin supplements, so drink up. Think of it like a perfect seasonal and more bioavailable multivitamin — your skin will also thank you!

2. Greens, Greens, and More Greens

Whether you get the majority or your greens from green juices and smoothies, soups, green powders, algae and superfoods, or good old-fashioned, home-cooked vegetables, they are an absolute necessity to cultivating health and immunity. Just as bone broth supplies the foundation nutrients for your body, these greens supply the life force in the form of chlorophyll, vitamin A, vitamin C, antioxidants, and a host of others as well. Fiber helps to keep your digestion regular while these nutrients help to build and cleanse the blood, maintain an alkaline environment, and keep your immunity high.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

There are nearly endless uses for apple cider vinegar. From external skin care to natural cleansing solutions to internal health care, ACV provides numerous benefits. Containing both pre- and probiotics, ACV may help ease a sore throat, nasal congestion, and stomach aches and acidity, and improve overall immunity. This may be in part due to the highly alkalizing properties ACV contains as well as the acetic acid that helps to keep pathogenic bacteria at bay. A good practice is to start your day off by consuming a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar diluted in water. If the flavor is too strong, add it to your favorite green juice or try morning drink — it actually enhances the flavor. Try gargling with it if you have a sore throat.

4. Probiotics

The health and happiness of our guts is a direct reflection of our overall wellness and even mood. We are beginning to understand more and more about the direct correlation between our gut ecology and our immunity. While it is true that many of us don't consume the balanced diets we should, we also consume less naturally occurring beneficial bacteria from the soil ingested through our produce, as well as other sources of these probiotics such as traditional raw fermented products. Along with a dependency on antibiotics, our gut health suffers, the result being a high sensitivity to the foods we consume and weakened resistance to pathogens. The fix? Load up on high-quality probiotics in the form of either a supplement, or high-quality, raw, fermented foods and beverages like kimchi, kombucha, and coconut kefir.

5. Oregano Oil

And when all else fails, my failsafe is oregano oil. It is a powerhouse restorer of health and my absolute go-to when I'm feeling anything less than 100 percent. It's a potent antibacterial and antimicrobial that also fights free radical damage, can help reduce and relieve allergies, stimulate digestion, and help to clear yeasts from the body, both externally and internally. A little goes a long way and brand to brand the quality also greatly varies. My favorite without comparison is Wild Oil of Oregano. Like with any supplements, natural or otherwise, be sure to check with your doctor or health professional about any potential interactions or complications.


          Arrebatos de Anonymous   
A través de un video de 12:35 minutos publicado en las redes sociales el pasado 20 de junio, el grupo de "hacktivistas" Anonymous que ha cobrado fama a nivel mundial por develar a la ciudadanía los secretos de organizaciones gubernamentales e instituciones que consideran violan la libertad de los ciudadanos, afirmó que la Administración Nacional de la Aeronáutica y del Espacio (NASA) daría a conocer los avances sobre las pruebas de la existencia de vida extraterrestre. Un material que en cuestión de horas se convirtió en viral y fue referenciado por cientos de páginas en todo el mundo sin corroborar la información con la agencia espacial como ya es costumbre entre el periodismo digital que se realiza sobre los temas del fenómeno Ovni/extraterrestre. El material afirmaba que "la ciencia no sólo podría conocer la existencia de vida bacteriana sino, incluso, de civilizaciones que han aflorado antes que la nuestra en el universo". Días más tarde ante la presión de la ciudadanía, así como de los medios de comunicación, la jefa de Comunicaciones de la NASA, Laura Castillo, desmintió la información: "Es cierto que tenemos numerosas misiones cuyo objetivo es buscar señales de vida en otros planetas. Pero aún no tenemos ninguna respuesta; seguiremos trabajando para responder a la fundamental pregunta: ¿estamos solos?". Inmediatamente crecieron en redes sociales las dudas por parte de quienes afirmaban que se estaba gestando una gran conspiración de ocultamiento de una noticia que cambiaría el curso de nuestra civilización, ya que el ser humano debía tener acceso y saber que en realidad no estamos solos en el universo. Sin embargo, debemos tener cuidado, pues no es la primera vez que a nombre del grupo Anonymous se aborda el tema de los Ovnis y extraterrestres. En diciembre de 2013, el grupo Anonymous Perú aseguró a través de su cuenta de Facebook que un Ovni se había estrellado en la localidad de Cieneguilla en Lima, lo que generó un leve movimiento telúrico en la zona e inmediatamente, habían llegado hasta el lugar de los hechos militares de Estados Unidos. Incluso se mostró una imagen donde se veía la presencia de helicópteros, que según ellos, eran cerca de 50 aeronaves con lo que validaban sus afirmaciones. La información en cuestión de minutos se hizo viral: "Pobladores cercanos a la zona comentaron que personas extrañas de nacionalidad no peruana habían pedido que se retiraran de ese lugar obligatoriamente y nadie se podía acercar al sitio". En mayo de 2011 los ciberactivistas dieron a conocer una imagen con cuatro peticiones a la ciudadanía, para que inventaran noticias de avistamientos Ovnis. Solicitaban reportar a un objeto en el cielo de ocho luces amarillas con forma de triángulo que se debería ubicar en lugares donde antes se hayan reportado avistamientos. Esto era para crear nuevos rumores y por último, como punto opcional, pedían crear un crop circle o una huella de aterrizaje en un jardín, en un lote baldío de algún objeto volador no identificado, es decir, un tripode. Todo esto tenía como objetivo convencer al mundo de que los Ovnis y extraterrestres si existían y daban una fecha para consumar este hecho: domingo 22 de mayo de 2011 a las 20:00 horas. Los que pugnamos por darle credibilidad al tema Ovni no permitiremos que se involucren personas con objetivos completamente distintos a la verdad, debe quedar claro que estos incidentes son una campaña de desinformación y desprestigio que debe ser detenida. Me queda claro que detrás de esto no hay gente de "Anonymous", esto ha sido una campaña grotesca y viral de unos cuantos que han usurpado el nombre de este grupo que trabaja como su nombre lo indica de manera anónima.
          Hospital-based public health epidemiologist program for biosurveillance   

The North Carolina Division of Public Health (NC DPH) developed a program to increase surveillance for potential bioterrorist or infectious disease events by placing public health epidemiologists in 10 of the state's largest hospital systems. Increased partnerships between public health and hospitals, along with the enhanced surveillance skills epidemiologists bring to large healthcare systems, led to a program with great potential for responding quickly to an emerging health crisis.

The Public Health Epidemiologist (PHE) program began in 2003, partly as a response to the discovery that the first patient suffering from intentional inhalational anthrax infection in 2001 had spent time in North Carolina before traveling to Florida. As public health officials tried to determine the origin of the infection, NC DPH personnel determined they needed a prompt way within hospital settings to retrieve infectious disease cases that could signal a bioterrorism attack or a communicable disease cluster.

NC DPH used funding from its "Public Health Preparedness and Response for Bioterrorism" cooperative agreement to place and maintain 10 PHEs in hospitals across the state. Hospitals selected for the program were intended to offer the greatest reach in geopolitical location, emergency department volume, hospital bed size, and participation in a network with a large referral base.

PHEs' main responsibility involves bridging the gap between analyzing the large amounts of clinical data gathered by hospitals and serving the communications and surveillance needs of health departments. PHEs examine hospital data for indications of community-based infections and bioterrorist events, use their surveillance skills to aid in public health investigations, and educate healthcare professionals about public health surveillance. PHEs are able to draw data from various hospital sources and thus play a significant role in developing plans to mitigate a bioterrorism attack.

Hospital-based PHEs generally operate under the guidance of a hospital epidemiologist and an infection control manager and communicate directly with the NC DPH Communicable Disease Branch . PHEs use North Carolina's statewide syndromic surveillance system – NC DETECT (North Carolina Disease Event Tracking and Epidemiologic Collection Tool) to daily review hospital Emergency Department visits for infectious diseases, community acquired infections of special interest, and other events of public health significance.

Other data sources include hospital admission logs, hospital laboratory results, and physician notes. PHEs also conduct case investigations based on their data results and inquiries into patients' exposure histories. Not only do they share any suspicious or concerning findings with infection control and preparedness staff from the hospital, local and state health departments, they also provide a weekly report of hospital-based surveillance.

Because PHEs often conduct surveillance for diseases or clusters of cases that might otherwise go unrecognized, they must be innovative about how they search for clues that something clinically unusual is occurring. This is especially true as they examine data records for cases of potential bioterrorism. PHEs search for key words in patient records that, if occurring in significant numbers, might indicate a bioterrorist event. For instance, PHEs might closely examine results obtained from a search for "fever and rash" to rule out smallpox. Likewise, because a bioterrorism attack would probably not be immediately obvious in a healthcare setting, PHEs might search for a term like "mediastinal widening on chest X-ray," rather than searching deliberately for "anthrax."

The PHE program has proven to be beneficial both to the relationship between public health and healthcare systems and to their respective abilities to identify patterns of illness in the community. PHEs have been able to identify clusters of encephalitis in adults and children and help with a shigellosis outbreak investigation  within several schools. Likewise, PHEs were responsible for identifying suspected cases of mycobacterium tuberculosis and meningococcal meningitis.

The PHE program has had a profound effect on surveillance for infectious disease and agents of bioterrorism, while also influencing organizational preparedness. PHEs have encouraged the development of several new approaches to healthcare preparedness since the beginning of the program, including an automated laboratory reporting system in their hospital, healthcare facility response plans for bioterrorism and infectious disease outbreaks, and the improvement of NC DETECT.

A survey conducted by the North Carolina Preparedness and Response Research Center (NC PERRC) in 2010 found that PHEs spend 20 percent of their time conducting public health investigations in coordination with local health departments. Nearly 13 percent of their time is spent communicating between clinicians, hospital workers, and public health professionals. The PHE program serves as important sentinel for potential health crises, while also building bridges between the information and response needs of public health and healthcare systems.

          The 5 Foods a Holistic Health Counselor Always Keeps in Her Kitchen   

As a nutrition and holistic health counselor, I'm asked constantly for my best kept secrets when it comes to natural supplements and tips to staying healthy. The larger secret is, unfortunately, that there is no silver bullet when it comes to creating instant health - it takes routine and repetition to create lasting and visible results and a strong immune system to fight back.

However, there are a few spotlight ingredients and go-to remedies that I rely on again and again, especially as we transition into Fall and Winter. These especially tumultuous seasons are hard on the body as our immune systems seem to be constantly bombarded by friends and employees playing telephone with the latest cold or flu going around. But the change of seasons doesn't have to mean waiting for the inevitable cold to hit.

While some of these need to be repeated regularly to really see their lasting benefit, there are a few gems that I swear by and always keep on hand. As basic as they many seem, keep in mind immunity starts in the gut, and proper nutrition is the first line of defense.

Here are my top five kitchen pantry wellness staples to bolster immunity and staying well throughout the colder months to come.

1. Bone Broth

Yup, the same stuff your mom or grandmother used to make. I'm not talking about the canned or boxed stuff though. Head to your local farmers market or trusted butcher and source the best quality, organic, antibiotic-free, free-ranged, pastured chicken, beef, or even bison bones, gristle, and cartilage you can to make your own at home. The quality of their diet and lifestyle ultimately is what you will be benefiting from, so it does make a big difference. These bones supply the building blocks not just for your own bones, muscles, and connective tissues, but basic essential vitamins and minerals, like calcium and magnesium, that most of us are extremely low in today. We also have an easier time utilizing these nutrients from naturally occurring ingredients vs. vitamin supplements, so drink up. Think of it like a perfect seasonal and more bioavailable multivitamin - your skin will also thank you!

2. Greens, Greens, and More Greens

Whether you get the majority or your greens from green juices and smoothies, soups, green powders, algae and superfoods, or good old-fashioned, home-cooked vegetables, they are an absolute necessity to cultivating health and immunity. Just as bone broth supplies the foundation nutrients for your body, these greens supply the life force in the form of chlorophyll, vitamin A, vitamin C, antioxidants, and a host of others as well. Fiber helps to keep your digestion regular while these nutrients help to build and cleanse the blood, maintain an alkaline environment, and keep your immunity high.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

There are nearly endless uses for apple cider vinegar. From external skin care to natural cleansing solutions to internal health care, ACV provides numerous benefits. Containing both pre- and probiotics, ACV may help ease a sore throat, nasal congestion, and stomach aches and acidity, and improve overall immunity. This may be in part due to the highly alkalizing properties ACV contains as well as the acetic acid that helps to keep pathogenic bacteria at bay. A good practice is to start your day off by consuming a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar diluted in water. If the flavor is too strong, add it to your favorite green juice or try morning drink - it actually enhances the flavor. Try gargling with it if you have a sore throat.

4. Probiotics

The health and happiness of our guts is a direct reflection of our overall wellness and even mood. We are beginning to understand more and more about the direct correlation between our gut ecology and our immunity. While it is true that many of us don't consume the balanced diets we should, we also consume less naturally occurring beneficial bacteria from the soil ingested through our produce, as well as other sources of these probiotics such as traditional raw fermented products. Along with a dependency on antibiotics, our gut health suffers, the result being a high sensitivity to the foods we consume and weakened resistance to pathogens. The fix? Load up on high-quality probiotics in the form of either a supplement, or high-quality, raw, fermented foods and beverages like kimchi, kombucha, and coconut kefir.

5. Oregano Oil

And when all else fails, my failsafe is oregano oil. It is a powerhouse restorer of health and my absolute go-to when I'm feeling anything less than 100 percent. It's a potent antibacterial and antimicrobial that also fights free radical damage, can help reduce and relieve allergies, stimulate digestion, and help to clear yeasts from the body, both externally and internally. A little goes a long way and brand to brand the quality also greatly varies. My favorite without comparison is Wild Oil of Oregano. Like with any supplements, natural or otherwise, be sure to check with your doctor or health professional about any potential interactions or complications.

Pure Quosa is a natural cleansing body spray that helps nourish and hydrate the skin while neutralizing odor causing bacteria.

Simply spray and go on any part of your body. They suggest hands, face, neck, sweat zones and feet. It is gentle enough to be used on kids and pets too. 

The powerful active ingredient in Pure Quosa is colloidal silver and is known to be anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-microbial and anti-bacterial for odor neutralizing. Many of the essential oils and plant hydrosols have anti-bacterial properties as well. Pure silver (.999%) from a silver bar or wire is transferred into the water and suspended. These tiny particles are then permanently suspended with an electrical charge keeping the silver from bunching in clumps. Brownian motion is known as the random motion of particles that are suspended in a fluid and resulting from the fast-moving atoms which are not colliding. These tiny particles are always moving in the spinning water and suspended indefinitely because of the positive electrical charge. In simple terms, colloidal silver near a pathogen, virus, fungi, or bacteria starves the oxygen. These tiny particles are then metabolism enzyme of air. Silver suffocates the pathogen, and it dies. Therefore, it is an alternative to antibiotics that cause an imbalance in the gut, causing other health issues to flare up. 

Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, and hydroflorates, are products from steam distilling plant materials for separating the plant's oils. The essential oil rises through a condenser, and the nutrient-rich steam/water is left behind. Hydrosols offer the same benefits of the plant in a gentler strength.

Personally, I loved these sprays. I felt they were a nice way to get clean when out of the house. I think these are much better than regular hand sanitizers. These can be used all over the body and make you feel better and smell better. You can use these when you cannot get to a shower. The sprays would be great for camping, after a long day of cycling, running, etc. And the best thing is, they really do get rid of body odor. These are not antiperspirant sprays, but deodorant sprays. I love the fact that physics is used here. The colloidal silver is suspended in the solution. Very cool. I think you would enjoy these sprays as much as I do. The scents are wonderful and so are the sprays.

          Orzuelos   

La mayoría de las personas que ya son conscientes de que los párpados son estructuras muy importantes, ya que tienen la función de proteger los ojos, ayudando a distribuir la humedad (a través de las lágrimas) y también jugar una barrera física contra las lesiones.

Por lo tanto, el hecho de que cualquier tipo de patología que se produce en esta zona merece atención debido a que, si no se trata adecuadamente, puede dañar las estructuras oculares.

Entre los problemas que pueden afectar a la zona del párpado, uno es bien conocido: la pocilga.

Katie Mello, oftalmólogo, director del Centro de Salud Ocular kátia Mello señala que "no hay estadísticas, pero el orzuelo es una condición extremadamente común en las oficinas de optometristas."

Pero en última instancia, lo que es pocilga? ¿Cuáles son sus causas y síntomas? Cómo tratarlo y prevenirlo? Las respuestas a todas estas preguntas que aparece a continuación.

¿Qué es la pocilga?

Un orzuelo es también llamada orzuelo y es una inflamación de las glándulas de Zeis y Mol, causando lesiones que se asienta sobre el borde de los párpados cerca de las pestañas.

Dicha lesión se acompaña de signos típicos de la infección causada por bacterias, como el dolor y el enrojecimiento.

Katia explica que el orzuelo es una condición bastante común y también puede ocurrir en hombres y mujeres de cualquier edad (desde bebés hasta adultos). "Parece que tiene una mayor incidencia en los adolescentes debido a los cambios hormonales, entre los pacientes alérgicos con el marco de la blefaritis (un" caspinha 'latigazos por el aumento de la producción de grasa en el mismo) ", añade.

Las principales causas de la enfermedad

Kathy explica que orzuelo (orzuelo) suele estar relacionada con la secreción excesiva producida por las glándulas del párpado asociado con las bacterias en la piel - lo que conduce a la obstrucción e inflamación de la glándula afectada.

El estrés y la desnutrición, de acuerdo con el oftalmólogo, pueden favorecer la aparición debido a la disminución de la inmunidad.

"Las personas con blefaritis y el aumento de la oleosidad de la piel también tienen una mayor predisposición", añade el médico.

El orzuelo es contagiosa?

Katie señala que el orzuelo no es contagiosa. "Sin embargo, hay que tener cuidado de no rayar o frotar los ojos, debido a que las bacterias circulantes pueden infectar a otras glándulas y / o perpetúan la infección", explica.

Los síntomas de orzuelo

Katya habla de los principales síntomas de orzuelo:

- Por lo general, se produce dolor local, enrojecimiento e hinchazón de la zona del párpado.

- Después de la obstrucción del paso y la proliferación de bacterias en las glándulas, la inflamación se observa en la región de los párpados.

- Un pequeño bulto rojo al igual que un grano aparece en el sitio.

- Con el tiempo empieza a ser el picor y el dolor localizado, que aumenta con el movimiento de los ojos y / o flash.

Tratamiento: cómo cuidar durante una crisis?

Kátia decir, en la mayoría de los casos, orzuelo espontáneamente en 5 a 7 días. "El tratamiento con compresas húmedas y calientes y el uso de antibióticos básicos y ungüentos corticosteroides prescritos por el oftalmólogo puede ayudar a drenar el contenido del orzuelo y aliviar el dolor", dijo.

Y añade que con el tiempo, en los casos en que el orzuelo es muy grande y dolorosa, el oftalmólogo puede drenar con una aguja para ayudar a drenar el pus acumulado.

"Cuando el orzuelo no drena por completo, puede mantenerse un nodulación en el sitio, llamado chalazión", añade el médico.

Katya cita algunas orientaciones adicionales para la persona que está tratando el orzuelo:

- Evite frotarse los ojos con los dedos;

- No utilice el maquillaje de ojos en el período de la infección;

- Evitar el uso de lentes de contacto durante el período de infección.

tratamiento casero para el orzuelo

Kathy explica que, en casa, se puede hacer mediante la aplicación de compresas calientes de manzanilla en el ojo durante 5 minutos, aproximadamente 3 veces al día para aliviar la inflamación, el dolor y ayudar a drenar el pus.

"Pero cuidado: no utilice nunca ácido bórico como sustancia no es estéril y puede promover las infecciones", dice el doctor.

Consejos para prevenir el problema

Katya cita las directrices principales para evitar la aparición de orzuelo:

- Los pacientes con piel grasa y / o un diagnóstico de blefaritis (un "caspinha 'las pestañas mediante el aumento de la producción de grasa en ellos) debe hacer la limpieza diaria de las pestañas y los bordes de los párpados. Esto se puede hacer mediante el uso de champú suave (bebé) o sustancias disponibles para la desinfección y uso oftálmico - con la ventaja de no irritar los ojos y son bastante eficaces.

- Otro consejo es para tratar y prevenir la conjuntivitis alérgica, evitando prurito ocular (picor).

- Siempre retire el maquillaje para evitar la contaminación local y la obstrucción de las glándulas.

Además de estos consejos, es importante recordar que las manos limpias son siempre la mejor medicina para prevenir la transmisión del virus y bacterias. Siempre tener cuidado de tomar las manos a los ojos sin antes lavarlos bien.

Ahora usted tiene las principales directrices de la pocilga. Aunque causar síntomas molestos, como el dolor y la picazón, si se trata adecuadamente, no tiende a causar grandes problemas. En caso de duda sobre el tema no dude en hablar con su médico.

Saiba quais são os segredos históricos do Brasil

Negociações obscuras com o ex-ditador Saddam Hussein, as contradições do governo Getúlio Vargas no combate ao nazismo, as muitas versões sobre a Guerra do Paraguai e até segredos de alcova

Um programa nuclear clandestino, o assassinato de um ex-presidente no regime militar, os campos de concentração brasileiros, a sangrenta demarcação das fronteiras... As passagens nebulosas, mal conduzidas e mal explicadas de nosso passado voltaram ao centro do debate com a polêmica da manutenção ou não do sigilo eterno dos documentos ultrassecretos. Os registros produzidos pelos órgãos oficiais do país estão pouco a pouco sendo revelados e descobertos - e jogam novas luzes sobre aquilo que imaginávamos saber. Para pesquisadores e historiadores, porém, muita coisa ainda está oculta. A sonegação de informações oficiais vem de longe. Começou já na "certidão de nascimento" do país - a carta de Pero Vaz de Caminha (ao que parece, herdamos o hábito dos portugueses). "O rei de Portugal, dom Manuel 1º, demorou um ano para comunicar a descoberta oficial do Brasil ao sogro, o rei da Espanha", conta o jornalista e escritor Laurentino Gomes, autor de 1822. "E a carta de Caminha, que dava detalhes do evento, ficou escondida na Torre do Tombo, em Lisboa, até 1773."

A bomba atômica dos militares

Nossas Forças Armadas tentaram desenvolver armas nucleares, talvez com uma mãozinha de Saddam Hussein

Em 1990, o presidente Fernando Collor jogou uma simbólica pá de cal num poço de 320 m para testes nucleares na serra do Cachimbo, no Pará. "A suspeita é que ele teria sido construído com recursos do Iraque de Saddam Hussein para abrigar testes do programa iraquiano. E os dados seriam cedidos ao Brasil", diz o jornalista Roberto Godoy, especialista em assuntos de defesa. O poço é só um pedaço de uma série de operações clandestinas, iniciadas no governo Ernesto Geisel, para garantir ao Brasil a tecnologia necessária para fabricar a bomba atômica (e ogivas para mísseis nucleares).

Na prática, sobretudo a partir do início da década seguinte, o governo manteve dois programas nucleares: o oficial, com fins pacíficos, e o paralelo e sigiloso. Sempre houve facções do regime que defendiam que a única maneira de o Brasil ser respeitado no mundo seria ter a bomba. O Iraque virou uma peça curiosa nesse enredo, que sobreviveu ao fim da ditadura. Entre 1979 e 1990, o Brasil exportou toneladas de urânio (a matéria-prima do combustível das bombas) para Saddam. O roteiro nebuloso inclui espionagem e suborno de técnicos e autoridades estrangeiras, entre outras manobras, que até alimentaram uma CPI sobre o tema. A Constituição de 1988 havia proibido o país de usar a tecnologia nuclear para fins bélicos, mas o "esforço paralelo" dos militares sobreviveu até 1990, segundo confirmou mais tarde José Carlos Santana, ex-presidente da Comissão Nacional de Energia Nuclear no governo Collor. Quando o CNEM do B deixou de funcionar, o país estaria prestes a fazer o primeiro teste.

"Em dezembro de 1996, a PF prendeu um alemão que vendera conhecimentos ao Brasil depois de tentativas frustradas junto ao Iraque", diz Tânia Malheiros, autora de Brasil: A Bomba Oculta - O Programa Nuclear Brasileiro. Para ela, é só uma amostra de que "há muita coisa a ser explicada". Hoje o Brasil domina o ciclo de produção do combustível nuclear e está construindo seu primeiro submarino com propulsão atômica. A revelação de detalhes estratégicos sobre essa tecnologia e os bastidores espúrios do programa nuclear estariam no topo das preocupações de quem, no governo Dilma, insiste em manter o sigilo eterno.

O assassinato de Jango

Operação Condor teria matado o ex-presidente em 1976

A Operação Condor teria arquitetado a morte do ex-presidente João Goulart no exílio, 12 anos depois de sua deposição pelo golpe de 1964. Mesmo passado tanto tempo e vivendo fora do país, ele era visto como uma ameaça pelos generais: era tido como simpatizante do comunismo e mantinha quase intacta sua popularidade - que poderia ser usada, imaginavam eles, para mobilizar a população contra o regime.

Jango tomou seu remédio diário para o coração. Mas, ao se deitar, infartou - algo previsível para um homem sob constante tensão (sofria ameaças de sequestro e atentados), fumante e sobrevivente de um ataque cardíaco 7 anos antes. Mas a hipótese de assassinato ganha força entre seus familiares. A Operação Condor foi uma ação conjunta firmada em 1975 entre os governos militares de Brasil, Chile, Argentina, Uruguai, Paraguai e Bolívia. Analisando documentos secretos, o jornalista americano John Dinges concluiu que a operação envolvia a troca de informações e perseguição a "subversivos" nos 6 países - e mesmo na Europa e nos EUA. "Mais de 30 mil pessoas foram torturadas e assassinadas pela operação, incluindo líderes civis exilados sob a proteção da ONU", afirmou Dinges.

Não há dúvida de que Jango era vigiado. Fotos de seu cotidiano no exílio em Montevidéu que estavam em poder do SNI foram entregues à família em 2006 pela então ministra da Casa Civil, Dilma Rousseff. Ele morreu na madrugada de 6 de dezembro de 1976, depois de viajar 600 km com a mulher. Contrariando a lei, não foi feita a autópsia. E no atestado de óbito o médico colocou "enfermedad" como a causa da morte, termo que não existe no protocolo médico. Trazido ao Brasil, não foi necropsiado. Em 1982, a Justiça argentina pediu a exumação do corpo após a denúncia, feita por um conhecido de Jango, de que ele tinha sido envenenado com sarin por dois sócios. A família não autorizou e o caso foi arquivado por falta de provas. "Agora temos a prova viva (do crime), que é o Neira Barreiro", afirmou João Vicente, filho de Jango, a AVENTURAS NA HISTÓRIA em 2008. Naquele ano, Barreiro, preso no Brasil por assalto a banco e tráfico de armas, disse a ele que vigiava seu pai 24 horas por dia (e revelou vários detalhes para provar) a mando do serviço de inteligência uruguaio. Contou que no frasco de remédios de Jango foi colocada uma cápsula com substâncias fatais a seu coração fraco. Disse ainda que o crime foi ordenado pelo delegado Sérgio Fleury (famoso por sua crueldade nas sessões de tortura), numa reunião em Montevidéu. No ano passado, a família autorizou a exumação dos restos mortais do ex-presidente, mas o Ministério Público do Rio Grande do Sul não seguiu a determinação. Em texto assinado por João Vicente no site do Instituto João Goulart, ele afirma que o MP não o fez "temendo, quem sabe, que com as novas técnicas de investigação se descubra algo suspeito". E prossegue: "Para nós, familiares, seria um conforto que essa diligência fosse tomada e que não pairasse mais dúvidas sobre as circunstâncias de sua morte. (...) Nós seguiremos lutando para que a verdade apareça". Ao mesmo tempo, Moniz Bandeira, cientista político e biógrafo de Jango, que corroborava a teoria da conspiração até 2010, mudou de lado e declarou que os Goulart só estão atrás de uma possível indenização. E que o espião Barreiro não passava de um radiotécnico da polícia.

Brasil, o vilão da Guerra do Paraguai

País promoveu uma carnificina gratuita, dizem historiadores.

As versões e lendas que passaram a cercar a Guerra do Paraguai, 141 anos depois do fim do maior conflito armado da América do Sul, são tenebrosas: guerra bacteriológica, extermínio de crianças, degola de prisioneiros e o incêndio criminoso de um hospital cheio de feridos. Por mais de um século, o episódio recebeu tratamento triunfal. A historiografia nacional destacava as batalhas vencidas pelos brasileiros e exaltou personagens e feitos heroicos. Até que, na década de 1970, os chamados "revisionistas" - como Julio Chiavenato, autor de Genocídio Americano - A Guerra do Paraguai - jogaram acusações como as do início deste texto no ventilador. Para eles, o governo brasileiro tentou (e ainda tenta) esconder seu verdadeiro papel no conflito: o de vilão.

Chiavenato diz que o duque de Caxias, o comandante brasileiro, teria jogado cadáveres no rio Paraná para contaminar a água. "O general Mitre (Bartolomeu Mitre, presidente argentino) está de acordo comigo que os cadáveres de coléricos devem ser jogados nas águas do rio Paraná para levar o contágio às populações ribeirinhas", teria escrito Caxias ao imperador dom Pedro 2º. Na prática, era um ataque bacteriológico, usando cadáveres de veículo para micro-organismos letais.

Não que essa versão tenha virado unanimidade. "O documento, de autoria desconhecida e evidentemente forjado, não tem valor histórico algum. Aliás, a versão também não tem lógica, já que o Paraná deságua no rio Paraguai e o rio não sobe - assim, não seria possível contaminar ninguém", contesta o historiador Francisco Doratioto, autor de Maldita Guerra.

Outra "bomba" que surgiu na onda revisionista foi o extermínio de crianças nas batalhas de Peribebuí e Acosta Ñu, em 1869. Na primeira, cerca de 21 mil aliados brasileiros e argentinos enfrentaram 1,8 mil paraguaios, a maior parte crianças disfarçadas com barbas postiças para que o inimigo não percebesse a fragilidade do exército. Os poucos adultos usaram tijolos, cacos de vidro e pedras contra canhões. Na batalha de Acosta Ñu (Campo Grande, para os brasileiros), a tática de disfarçar garotos de adultos também acabou em massacre. Placar de mortes: 2 mil paraguaios x 26 brasileiros.

Diferentemente do que o senso comum imagina, o Brasil estimulou a sobrevivência do Paraguai como nação independente - ao contrário da Argentina, que gostaria de absorvê-lo. Depois que acabou a guerra, por muito pouco Brasil e Argentina, aliados no conflito, não começaram outra. Isso só não aconteceu porque ambos estavam esgotados. Documentos que poderiam mostrar com mais clareza o papel do Brasil no campo de batalhas estariam escondidos no Itamaraty, com acesso proibido aos pesquisadores.

Segredo de estrado

O apetite sexual de dom Pedro 1º nunca foi segredo de estado. Mas que o imperador tentou esconder isso da história, tentou. O romance entre ele e sua amante Domitila de Castro, a marquesa de Santos, rendeu mais de 200 cartas e bilhetes escritos pelo imperador entre 1822 e 1829. O namoro começou pouco antes da Independência e gerou 5 filhos (e mais um com a irmã de Domitila). Pedro mantinha outras 16 amantes. Esse fogo todo se refletia no teor picante das cartas, muitas assinadas como Demonão e Fogo Foguinho: "Forte gosto foi o de ontem à noite que nós tivemos. Ainda me parece que estou na obra. Que prazer! Que consolação!" Pesquisadores acreditam que dom Pedro destruiu a maioria das mensagens que recebeu dela. Deve tê-la orientado a fazer o mesmo. Domitila não obedeceu. O historiador Alberto Rangel (1871-1945) descobriu boa parte dessa documentação e escancarou o lado cara de pau do imperador. Este ano, o pesquisador Paulo Rezzutti publicou um livro (Titília e o Demonão) com 94 correspondências inéditas que encontrou no museu Hispanic Society of America, de Nova York. "Ontem mesmo fiz amor de matrimônio para hoje, se mecê estiver melhor e com disposição, fazer o nosso amor por devoção", escreveu o Demonão.

Rui Barbosa "queima" a escravidão

"O Congresso Nacional felicita o Governo Provisório por ter ordenado a eliminação nos arquivos nacionais dos vestígios da escravatura no Brasil." Com essa mensagem, era aprovada em dezembro de 1890 a decisão do ministro da fazenda, Rui Barbosa, de queimar todos os livros de registros dos cartórios municipais com dados relativos à compra, venda e transferência de escravos no país. A papelada foi destruída em 13 de maio de 1891.

A hipótese mais aceita é a de que a intenção era evitar que o Tesouro Nacional fosse obrigado a indenizar os donos de escravos afetados pela Lei Áurea, de 1888. "Os senhores de engenho, fazendeiros e grandes proprietários pensavam em se beneficiar com a República e com as indenizações", acredita Humberto Fernandes Machado, da Universidade Federal Fluminense. Para ele, uma república recém-estabelecida por um golpe militar, com o apoio de antigos senhores de escravos, poderia ter tomado rumo diferente (pior) se os documentos existissem. "A queima anulou essa possibilidade."

Mas essa moeda tem outro lado. "Se tivessem o registro de sua data de compra, os negros também poderiam reivindicar uma recompensa por terem sido escravizados ilegalmente", acredita Marisa Saenz Leme, da Unesp de Franca. Ela apoia seu argumento em uma lei promulgada em 7 de novembro de 1831 que proibia o tráfico negreiro. A ordem não foi cumprida - nos 15 anos seguintes, pelo menos 300 mil africanos foram trazidos. Em tese, eles poderiam ser beneficiados por indenizações. Evidência disso é que, em 2006, foi encontrada uma carta da princesa Isabel ao visconde de Santa Vitória, sócio do Banco Mauá. Nela estava descrita a intenção de indenizar os ex-escravos com terras e instrumentos de trabalho.

O circo do Acre

De coordenadas geográficas de mentira à "troca por um cavalo": as tramas e falcatruas na compra do estado

Nos primeiros anos da República, entrou em cena um capítulo controverso da demarcação de nossas fronteiras: a anexação do Acre. Na região, viviam diferentes grupos étnicos (nem brasileiros nem bolivianos). Pouco importava, para eles, quais eram os limites de Brasil, Bolívia e Peru. Para o governo brasileiro, a região era território boliviano.

"Euclides da Cunha foi feliz quando afirmou que, durante anos, o rio Purus foi cartografado fantasiosamente por geógrafos e burocratas que nunca puseram os pés na região. As absurdas coordenadas e linhas demarcatórias que daí surgiram deram margem para incompreensões sobre o que passaria a se chamar Questão do Acre", diz o historiador Gerson Albuquerque, da Universidade Federal do Acre. Para ele, tratados como o de Ayacucho (1867), que embasaram a demarcação das fronteiras entre Brasil e Bolívia, foram assinados às escuras - pautados por coordenadas fantasiosas. Esse abandono mudou quando se percebeu que os pneus da nascente indústria automobilística precisavam do látex acriano como matéria-prima. Seringueiros do Norte e Nordeste invadiram a região sem que os vizinhos notassem (ou reclamassem).

Quase 20 anos depois, Bolívia e Peru também cresceram os olhos para a borracha. Os bolivianos tentaram então arrendar o território para um consórcio de empresas de capital inglês e americano. E instalaram uma base militar na região para cobrar impostos sobre a circulação de mercadorias. Os barões da borracha, com o bolso ferido, se mobilizaram. "A Bolívia era pequena e muito mais frágil militarmente que o Brasil, a grande nação expansionista na região. Por isso, teve de ceder ao ‘acordo’ (o Tratado de Petrópolis, de 1903, que incorporou o Acre ao território brasileiro)", diz Albuquerque. Em 2006, o presidente da Bolívia, Evo Morales, reclamou que o país "deu o Acre ao Brasil em troca de um cavalo". Na verdade, foi por 2 milhões de libras, ou 400 milhões de reais hoje. Pouco para uma área 3 vezes maior que a Suíça (152 mil km2). Mas o Brasil cedeu terras do Mato Grosso e se comprometeu a construir a estrada de ferro Madeira-Mamoré para transportar produtos bolivianos até o oceano Atlântico. A abertura da documentação ainda sob sigilo, para Albuquerque, poderá lançar outras luzes sobre versões românticas da história. "Temos o direito de conhecer as tramas e as sujeiras que marcaram a constituição das fronteiras." Um diplomata brasileiro, sob anonimato, afirma que até pessoas de outros países reclamam dos segredos brasileiros. "Existe muita suspeita, e a recente defesa do sigilo eterno fomenta isso."

Os campos de concentração de Getúlio

Ditador seguiu a cartilha nazista inclusive depois de romper com Hitler: alemães, italianos e japoneses sofreram em 31 campos espalhados pelo país

Qual dos lados envolvidos na 2ª Guerra - os Aliados ou o Eixo - era mais caro ao presidente Getúlio Vargas? Na década de 1930, os alemães eram o segundo maior mercado consumidor de produtos brasileiros. Policiais e militares brasileiros treinaram com a Gestapo, e o governo entregou aos nazistas judeus alemães que moravam no Brasil. Em abril de 1942, uma passeata reuniu cerca de 2 mil nazistas uniformizados no centro de Florianópolis.

Pesa ainda a favor de seu possível pendor para o lado dos alemães e italianos a revelação, no fim dos anos 1980, do conteúdo das Circulares Secretas. Nelas, Vargas orientava diplomatas brasileiros na Europa a não conceder vistos de entrada para o Brasil a judeus e outras minorias "indesejadas". Segundo a historiadora Priscila Perazzo, a professora e pesquisadora Tucci Carneiro conseguiu burlar a vigilância nos arquivos do Itamaraty e fez cópias das Circulares, consideradas documentos secretos e, portanto, proibidas aos olhos dos cidadãos comuns. No fim dos anos 1990, novos documentos vieram a público.

"Vargas era um homem dos tempos do fascismo. Na década de 1930, essa era a ideologia dominante em muitos lugares. O Brasil não estava fora disso", diz Priscila. Ela avalia que o país acabou entrando na guerra ao lado dos aliados graças a um alinhamento comercial, político, cultural e diplomático com os EUA que vinha de anos - não foi um ato intempestivo para vingar o bombardeio de navios na costa brasileira por submarinos alemães. Eles queriam nos dar um susto para frear essa aproximação com os americanos. Nem foi uma retribuição interesseira pelo (muito) dinheiro americano investido na Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional - a versão mais popular para a decisão de Getúlio Vargas.

Em 1942, Getúlio rompeu com Hitler. Mas não com as práticas fascistas. A diferença é que agora elas se voltavam contra os alemães. É cada vez maior o volume de descobertas sobre os campos de concentração brasileiros e sobre os maus-tratos que civis japoneses, italianos e principalmente alemães sofreram no Brasil. Se não eram locais de tortura sistemática e extermínio em massa, como na Alemanha, também estavam longe de ser colônias de férias.

Até o fim da guerra, o Ministério da Justiça manteve 31 campos de concentração em lugares como Pindamonhangaba e Guaratinguetá (SP), Joinville (SC) e Rio de Janeiro. Para lá, eram mandados os "inimigos" que chegassem ao país durante o conflito ou que fossem suspeitos de espionagem. Não podiam ler livros em seu idioma, eram submetidos a trabalhos forçados na lavoura e muitas vezes dependiam de ajuda externa para não passar fome. Alguns, acusados de serem nazistas, só podiam receber visitas no dia de Natal - seus descendentes suspeitam que tenham sido torturados. Cerca de 5 mil pessoas foram confinadas nesses lugares. Mesmo assim, os nazistas conseguiram montar uma importante rede de espionagem no Brasil - o que era considerado um forte indício de que, se conquistasse a Europa, Hitler voltaria seus olhos para cá.

          Freeze-dried placenta pills likely caused this newborn’s dangerous bacterial infection   
baby

Photo by Flickr user Katrina Cole

In a certain corner of the alternative health movement, fueled by celebrity buzz, it’s become en vogue for new mothers to consume their placentas after giving birth. Companies have sprouted up offering to turn placentas into smoothies, truffles, and freeze-dried pills, claiming that placental eating — practiced by many mammal species — can give recovering moms a boost of vitamins and nutrients, and help prevent postpartum depression.

Evidence, however, is lacking that it has any health benefit for human moms or babies. And a new case report reveals that it can be incredibly dangerous.

The case report describes an infant born in Oregon in fall 2016 who was soon after diagnosed with a strep infection that was causing breathing difficulties. After a course of antibiotics, the baby was immediately hospitalized again and tested positive for strep a second time. Doctors, searching for the source of the infection, eventually realized that the mother was taking daily dried placenta capsules. Testing of the capsules confirmed that they were strep positive.

The report, published in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, states that the pills likely increased the strep bacteria in the mom’s intestines and skin, from which the baby picked up the bacteria.

And a similar risk may exist for other bacteria, the scientists point out. Placental tissue, consumed raw, may contain various kinds of bacteria. But even prepared placenta — whether by cooking, drying, or preservation — can transmit infection. The report states that the unnamed company that made the placenta pills dehydrated the tissue at 115 degrees F-160 degrees F, while a temperature of at least 130 for 121 minutes is needed to kill off salmonella bacteria. (The report doesn’t list the temperature needed to kill strep bacteria.)

Celeb health hazards

A number of companies, including Puget Sound Placenta, Northern Virginia Placenta Specialist Collective, and Austin Womb Service, offer placental encapsulation like that described in the report, selling everything from basic capsules to chocolate placenta truffles to placenta smoothies. January Jones, Alicia Silverstone, and Kim Kardashian are just of a few of the celebrities who consumed pills made of their own dried placenta after giving birth, claiming the practice provides a myriad of health benefits.

According to Timothy Caulfield, author of the book “Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?” and a health law professor at the University of Alberta, placental consumption is one of many health phenomena lacking scientific evidence that has been popularized by celebrities.

“I really think that, but for people like Kim Kardashian and other celebrities, people wouldn’t be doing this, they wouldn’t be considering it, it wouldn’t be so popular,” he said. “The power of celebrity culture is profound, and I really think this is an example of it.”

For example, in her 2014 book “The Kind Mama,” Alicia Silverstone wrote about eating placenta pills: “I got to the point that my husband said, ‘Did you have your happy pills today?’ And I was really sad when they were gone. It really helped me.”

And, Caulfield points out, social media allows celebrities to channel health advice to their fans in a way that feels more conversational and tangible. Kim Kardashian, for example, has posted repeatedly about placenta pills on Twitter and Instagram, including a photo of a glass canning jar full of pills labeled “Kim, Your Amazing Placenta.”

When it comes to health, Caulfield recommends mostly ignoring celebrities and pop culture.

“What you really want to wait for is a body of evidence,” he said. “Look for trusted sources of information that aggregate the science. That’s what you want. You don’t want sources that hype a single study, you don’t want to take advice from a celebrity, you don’t want to use anecdotes and narratives as evidence.”

          Acne Scars   
Acne is an inflammation of the skin that affects people from every country and every culture around the world. In the US, acne is predominantly thought of as a teenage dilemma, as more than eighty percent of teens and preteens will develop some form of acne. However, the condition certainly affects a large number of adults and even infants. The scientific name for the condition is acne vulgaris because acne usually strikes in plainly visible locations such as the face, neck, chest and back. There are various types of acne that range in annoyance, severity, and healing time. The most severe type of acne may even lead to scars that if not treated properly, may be visible for a lifetime. If you or a loved one is troubled by severe acne, here's what you need to know about acne scars and what you need to do to avoid and care for them.



How Does Acne Form?




Contact with an oily substance such as mineral oil, vegetable oil, or petroleum is a potential cause of acne, as is the use of certain medication and steroids. However, acne is most often cause by the secretion of androgens. Acne is also aggravated by milk or dairy products, red meat and fast food. Androgens are sex hormones that are initially secreted at the onset of puberty. They are male hormones but they are secreted by females as well. Androgens stimulate the production of oil from the skin's oil glands. Acne occurs when these overactive oil glands become blocked, causing the oil to build up in the gland and swell. A bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes normally colonizes this swollen gland causing the development of inflammation and pus. In particularly severe cases, the glands may burst into the skin and produce cysts.



Types Of Acne



Acne blemishes are categorized into four grades, ranging from mild to very severe.



Grade I: Mild acne falls into this category. People with grade I acne generally have blackheads and whiteheads but pimples are not present.
Grade II: The condition is considered moderate acne when blackheads, whiteheads, and small pimples are present, but they are confined to the face and the inflammation they cause is minimal.
Grade III: Severe acne includes blackheads, whiteheads, and deeper pimples with more pronounced swelling.
Grade IV: acne is considered very severe when it occurs on the face, neck, shoulders, chest, and back. Pustules and deeper cysts occur with very severe acne and scarring may result if the condition is not cared for properly.
Preventing Acne Scars



The most important rule for acne sufferers to remember is that you should never pick or squeeze acne blemishes. This can lead to the spread of acne and the development of acne scars. Instead, there are a number of herbal, homeopathic, and traditional formulas that can be used to treat acne and prevent the development of acne scars. Herbs work naturally with the body to reduce acne blemishes and prevent the development of acne scars. Echinacea and poke root are often used for their anti-inflammatory properties and red clover may be beneficial for its estrogenic action. Witch hazel has excellent astringent properties and may be very effective on acne.



Relieving Acne Scars



Acupuncture: Stagnant of Chi in the channels of the face is said to be the cause of acne. Acupuncture performed on these points of the face may help relieve acne, and prevent the development of acne scars.



Surgery: In moderate to severe cases of acne, doctors may use surgery to open up the blemishes and remove blackheads and whiteheads. Unlike medication treatments, the effects of acne surgery are usually more immediate. And surgery is also effective in reducing the development and visibility of acne scars.



Cleaning the intestinal Tract: Acne can be a by-product of a filthy intestinal tract and colon. In most cases when the colon is clean the acne will go away. I recommend the intestinal cleanser Oxy-Powder.




Other remedies include the skin rejuvenation program including 3 products: Oxy-Skin, Oxy-Zap and a strong Aloe Vera concentrate available at http://www.acne-answers.org. These products should help prevent acne scarring.

          Acne In Depth Questions and Answers   
Acne is a commonplace skin problem for the majority of adolescents and also afflicts a portion of the adult population. People of all different age groups and backgrounds have had to deal with acne at one point or another. Thus, there has long been a long standing desire to prevent it or even cure it.



We will take a look at some of the various causes of acne in addition to some of the various ways in which people are treated. Our hope with this article is that you will gain a better understanding as to the reasons why people get acne and what they can do for prevention and treatment.




What is acne?



For many thousands of years, people have wrestled with acne. Acknowledged in some cultures as a kind of curse from the gods for immoral behavior, acne has mostly been misunderstood. Only within roughly the past century has the medical field been able to distinguish the true causes of acne. As some might expect, this has permitted those who are afflicted with blemishes to gain a certain sense of relief.



An inflammatory disease of the skin, acne is the consequence of serious changes in the skin's structure. Acne is considered to be the body's unique response to a relatively natural production of testosterone, a male hormone.



Instead of a sign that one's skin is not clean, acne is more closely related with the hormonal and bacterial activity underneath the skin, which finally leads to the irritation of the skin. The end result is the red swelling that we know as acne.



What is The Most Common Type of Acne?



One may think that all acne is the alike, but in fact it is not. As with all irritations of the skin, there are several forms involved. Some are believed more serious and harder to eliminate than others. The most usual kind is acne vulgaris, which only means "common acne," ordinarily signified by a red swelling of the skin. Soon after the initial signs, the white or yellow pus that people associate with acne becomes evident.



This is the type of acne that the majority of teenagers get, caused when excessive amounts of oil from the sebaceous gland combine with dead skin cells to end up clogging the pores of the skin. Since the skin's pores are blocked, oil continues to build up, hence permitting bacteria and yeast to spread. This surplus of bacteria and yeast is what finally does tons of damage to a persons skin.



What Are The Mental Effects of Acne?



Acne might show a body's failure to properly deal with hormonal changes. Acne can suggest that a person is not handling stress in an effective manner. It might be an indication of a potentially serious allergic reaction to a medication or other type of element. It is not these effects of acne that tend to do the most damage, though.




Acne is more than a health issue, acne is known to cause people (mainly teens) a sense of shame as well as embarrassment. Acne is incorrectly associated with being unclean. Clear, healthy skin is associated with cleanliness, while severe forms of acne are frequently thought to be the effect of sanitary neglect.



Not just that, acne can be ugly and turn people away. The majority of people who experience severe acne are emotionally scarred by the social rejection, contributing to adolescent emotional insecurity and a sense of self-doubt. Because of this, acne should be treated as rapidly and as thoroughly as possible.



Isn't it True That Staying Clean Helps Prevent Acne?



It is always a healthier alternative to rid your skin of toxins as well as dirt that accumulate throughout your normal daily routine. So yes, to some extent, it is true that washing your skin can help prevent or decrease acne.



Acne is a chemical element, and it is something that occurs beneath the surface of the skin to a greater degree than on the skin itself. Both cleansing on a daily basis as well as care of one's skin will help in reducing the bacteria that resides on the surface of the skin, but these actions cannot decrease the testosterone levels below the surface of the skin that help to create acne.



Recognizing this underlying fact should help to reduce some of the stigma that is accompanied with acne. It should also allow people who are enduring their acne to take some degree of comfort in understanding that they are not necessarily less clean than other people. The truth is that they have very little actual control over what is going on beneath their skin.



What Are Some of The Other Elements Involved That Increase the Probability of Getting Acne?



That is a good question, and one that is likely on everyone's mind. The tough part about acne is that there is not one single element that can prompt it. Several factors help cause acne. Some of them can be circumvented, while others cannot. For instance, one cannot change their family history, but this is one very important factor in influencing the development of some form of acne.




Hormonal activity is another. Women who are pregnant or who are menstruating have been known to abruptly acquire bad cases of acne. Other elements, such as stress and certain medications, can also bring about acne.



Bear in mind, acne is based on the hormonal changes that occur within the body. Any life-changing or stress-inducing occurrence is likely to alter a person's chemical makeup. Lastly, the accumulation of dead skin cells often contributes to increased acne.

          Acne Treatment 7 Things You Must Know   
Let me ask you this...



Are you suffering from acne?




Do you know what is causing it and is there any effective acne
treatment?



Studies show that an estimated 80 % percent of people experience
acne at some point. No one knows exactly what the cause of acne
is, but there are a few theories.



Let´s take a look at 7 of them:



1. Acne normally begins between the ages of eleven and thirteen.



This is true in both males and females due to changes in hormone
levels. These hormones, called androgens, will enlarge the
facial glands. The oil produced by the glands is known as
sebum. The hair follicles shed dead cells too quickly and the
cells and sebum form a blockage in the gland.



2. Pressure and rubbing from tight garments.



Adult with acne should avoid tight-collared shirts that might
irritate the acne further. Adult athletes may notice an outbreak
of acne from equipment such as backpacks or athletic helmets.



3. Acne can also be caused by genetics.



Studies have shown that a family history of acne can affect
whether you have acne and the severity of it. So if your mother
or father had acne as a teen, chances are that it will be a
contributory factor to the cause of your acne.




4. Factors linked to women



Women have several factors that men don’t that can be linked to
the cause of acne. Women go through several phases of life that
cause their hormone levels to change. These changes can cause
acne in adult women between two and seven days before their
menstrual cycle.



5. Pregnancy and hormones



Pregnant women also experience a fluctuation in hormones.



Those who may have previously had little or no acne may see
pimples during their pregnancy and for a time after the birth of
the baby until the hormone levels return to normal.



6. Menopause and hormones



Menopause will cause changes in hormone levels for woman and can
be a cause of acne. Women also tend to wear heavy makeup when
experience an acne outbreak, which only worsens the problem by
further clogging pores.



7.Stress.




Especially in adults, stress can be another cause of acne.
When you are stressed, the hormone cortisol is produced.



Cortisol will worsen any acne you already have. To prevent
stress-related acne, try relaxation and meditation.



Some adults experience acne from picking at blemishes on their
skin. You should never pick at or squeeze a pimple, blackhead or
any other blemish on your face.



This can only cause more acne and possibly an infection.
When cleaning your face, avoid harsh facial cleansers(they cause
the creation of more sebum) and scrubbing your
face too vigorously.



Acne treatments



The sad part is that most of the acne products are sold over the
counter for treatment.



Most over-the-counter acne treatments are topical and come in
the form of a cream, soap, lotion or gel.



Acne products normally contain benzoyl peroxide (good for
killing the bacteria and possibly reducing oil production),
sulfur (helps eliminate blackheads and whiteheads) and/or
salicylic acid (cuts down the speed of cell lose).



More severe cases may require prescription acne medicine that is
topical or oral.




Oral acne medication can help reduce both the growth of the
bacteria and inflammation of glands.

          Lisa Przystup   
When Lisa Przystup, a freelance writer, was working on a story featuring the stylish tribe of florists based in Brooklyn, it piqued her own interest in floral design. “It was so amazing to visit their studios and be among the flowers,” she remembered. “My fiancé and I were upstate a lot, and I would forage and cut flowers and play around.” After assisting a few florists in the city, including Taylor Patterson from Fox Fodder Farm and Emily Thompson of Emily Thompson Flowers, Przystup started James's Daughter Flowers in 2013. Her first gig was designing weekly arrangements for the Claire Vivier boutique in Manhattan, which amounted to more events with brands like Steven Alan, Madewell and Urban Outfitters. “Now, I feel like I’m at a good point where I’m writing and doing flowers in between, which is nice because my schedule is flexible and my weekends are open for weddings and events.”

We asked Przystup about her favorite flowers, her hair care routine and the blooms she’d use for a floral arrangement inspired by Bright Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color.


How did you learn about floral design?

It was a combination of looking at other florists’ work, reading books and assisting. I looked at a lot of websites of florists whom I admire, which gave me a sense as to how to create their lines and what they’re doing. There are definitely a lot of books out there that are super helpful and get you on the road to building your base structure for arrangements. When I was at Emily Thompson’s studio, I was given a small nugget of information, and I learned that if you build on that foundation, it’s a jumping-off point to finding your style.

How has your style changed since you started?

I was always drawn to the organic, wild, natural look. I think that’s what I’m trying to emulate. It’s funny to look at old pictures—seeing your growth and knowing that you’ve improved, but understanding you can always get better.

Describe a typical day for you.

The night before an event, I’m brainstorming the color palette and textures that I want. That way, when I go to the flower market, I’m not blindly grabbing—that works sometimes, but it’s nice to have a game plan. Ideally, florists should be at the flower market at 6 a.m. But I’m not a morning person, so I usually end up getting there around 8 a.m. It’s late on the floral side, but it still works out. Once I’m finished with the flower market, I go home, start arranging and deliver the flowers.

What do you love most about your work?

It’s such a treat to work with living things. It’s really invigorating to be surrounded by these living, breathing, amazing smelling things through every season. In the summer, everything else is alive and you’re so happy. In the winter, everything is dead around you but you have these beautiful living things here. That’s a great part of it. It’s so much fun to play with them and work with different textures and colors. It’s like a puzzle. You’re arranging and trying to figure out the right space and find the right filler. And when you figure it out, it’s a really nice feeling.

What inspires you?

Looking around at different florists’ work and at color palettes is always inspiring. Right now, I have fun working with bright colors that are kind of funky—colors that are represented in really unique, irreverent blooms. I’m also inspired by the complete antithesis of what’s outside: Right now, it’s gray and cold and terrible, so I’m creating bright, wild, overgrown arrangements. By the summer, I’ll be more about romantic, lush and traditional arrangements.

What are some of your favorite flowers?

In the late summer and early fall, there are these dahlias called Café au Lait that are so beautiful and show-stopping. Fritillaries have a checkerboard pattern on them, and I really love those. There are also some beautiful tulips with colors and leaves that are shaped to look almost alien-like. You don’t recognize or realize that they’re tulips.

What are some tips for hair salons interested in having fresh flowers as part of their everyday display?

If you have a business and you’re trying to do weekly flowers, simpler is better. Go to the flower market and spend a little bit of money on a unique statement bloom that will make your arrangement stand out. Then augment it with some interesting greens or a couple of really accessible blooms.

Cut the stems on an angle and make sure they’re touching the water. Before adding the stems to the water, remove all of the leaves. When the leaves rot in the water, the bacteria will increase and the quicker the flowers will die faster. If it’s a simple arrangement, you can always pour the water out and change it with fresh water after the first two or three days. Also, try to keep them out of direct sunlight or away from a drafty window. But be realistic: The expectation to make bouquets last more than a week is unlikely, so enjoy them while you can!

How do you think flowers can enhance a salon environment?

It makes such a huge difference and can create an immediate improvement. They add color and life to a space. It’s like plants: If you add a plant to your apartment, you feel like you have company in a way. People love flowers. Whenever I’m carrying a package of flowers, the people around me are smiling, everyone’s happy.

Describe your hair care routine. What are your favorite Oribe products?

I religiously use a thickening shampoo and conditioner. My hair is fine, but I have a lot of it. I’ve always wanted texture, waves and volume, so I definitely strive for that in my hair care routine. I don’t ever blow-dry my hair, so when I get out of the shower, I let it air-dry a little bit before adding product. Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse is the only product that I need. I also like to wash my hair before I go to bed and sleep on it to add a little more texture. It’s pretty low maintenance. I’ve also been using Dry Texturizing Spray and Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray recently.

Tell us about your arrangement inspired by Bright Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color.

The arrangement is bright, light and airy. The bottles are so vibrant and beautifully shaped, so I wanted to do an arrangement that complemented them. I used orange, pinkish roses with pale pink filler flowers. I included jasmine and eucalyptus, which are always so pretty and smell so good. Since the shampoo and conditioner formulas are purple, I wanted to add in that color with the fritillaries.
          Care sunt afecțiunile care pot afecta gingiile   

Afecțiunile gingivale au drept cauză placa bacteriană care nu este îndepătată în urma periajului, ducând astfel la apariția tartrului. Tartrul dentar se poate îndepărta doar în urma unui detartraj efectuat în cabinetul medicului stomatolog. În cazul în care tartrul și placa nu sunt îndepărtate, dar și factorii ereditari, precum și existența altor probleme de sănătate, pot favoriza apariția mai multor afecțiuni gingivale

          Beauty Resolutions Everyone Should Make   
The turn of the year provides a great opportunity to start fresh and promise to take better care of yourself—inside and out. We asked some of the country’s leading health and beauty experts to share with us the resolutions they think everyone should make.

Loren Bassett, instructor at Pure Yoga and founder of Bassett’s Bootcamp
Use yoga to boost your confidence and your energy. Back bends (camel or wheel poses, for example) increase confidence by opening the heart chakra and igniting the nervous system. When you're fatigued, sun salutations are a natural energy enhancer…a great way to get the energy flowing! Movement stimulates the blood flow, bringing life and energy to the body.

Jennifer Iserloh, health coach and founder of Skinny Chef
Include one probiotic food in your diet at least three times a week. My pick is plain kefir; it's a yogurt-style drink that contains 11 probiotic cultures. It not only helps to alleviate bloating, it's 99 percent lactose-free and amazing for skin health. I use it as a base for all my smoothies. The two brands I recommend, because they taste the best and work well in the blender, are Evolve Kefir and Lifeway. Stick to plain flavor and lightly sweeten it with stevia for the skinny effect!

June Jacobs, founder of June Jacobs Spa Collection and Peter Thomas Roth
Wash your makeup off every single night before bed. No exceptions. Pollution and makeup left on from the day will wreak havoc in the skin if left overnight. If you're too tired, make sure to leave face wipes next to your bed so you can easily remove makeup with little effort as a last resort.

Niv Zinder, trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp and Krav Mega Academy
Treat your body right, and don’t give up! It’s important to get into the right mindset and commit yourself to a change. Set up a fitness goal; it’s easier to stay committed when you see it in front of your eyes, so I recommend writing down your goal. Start by setting up easy and short-term goals (i.e. a weekly goal to start). Step by step you will find yourself more engaged and determined to reach the next goal.

Coby Alcantar, Oribe Educator and owner of Little Axe Salon in Brooklyn, NY
First and foremost, be good to your hair and use a masque weekly, especially during the winter. If you’re willing to be a bit more daring in the new year, go platinum (in my opinion, everyone should be blonde once in their life!). If you’re not up for a total transformation, try something simple (and less permanent) like a new part. Change your part for a day and see how much of a difference such a small shift can make.

Tracy Anderson, founder of Tracy Anderson Method
Take some time to connect to your own inner and outer beauty. Grab a book like Dr. Sadeghi's Within after a great workout so you are in tune with yourself and honoring your unique beauty.

Dr. Shirley Madhere, New York City-based holistic plastic surgeon
I think it’s important for people to pamper their scalp. I recommend a weekly essential oil treatment. I mix my own cocktail for healthy scalp – 1 ounce grapeseed oil and 1 ounce jojoba oil with 10 drops of each of the below essential oils:
Argan oil
Rosemary oil
Bergamot oil
Lavender oil
Peppermint oil

Kazumi, master colorist at Jonathan and George Salon in Beverly Hills, CA
Eat a balanced diet for the beauty and strength of your hair. Hair is made of protein, so you need to keep up your protein intake. Foods that are good for your hair include salmon, which is rich in protein, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids to contribute to strong hair. Also, walnuts have omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E and Biotin, which is said to help hair growth. Kelp contains many essential nutrients for hair growth and shine, is high in iodine and is a great source of iron and a variety of vitamins, including A, B1, B2, D and E.

Rea Ann Silva, celebrity makeup artist and founder of Beautyblender
Clean your beauty tools regularly! Washing your brushes and sponges on a consistent basis not only extends the life of the tools, but it keeps your skin clean, clear and bacteria-free. Once a week, after your morning makeup application, set aside your brushes and sponges, fill up your sink or a bowl with warm water, add in a gentle cleanser like Johnson & Johnson or beautyblender's liquid cleanser, soak the brushes and let dry on a paper towel while you’re at work.

Annet King, director of global education at Dermalogica
For 2014, everyone should resolve to wear an SPF of 30 every day…come rain, snow, or sunshine. Daylight is the enemy, not the sun. Also, resolve to get moles and freckles checked by a dermatologist.”

Kien Hoang, Oribe Educator and owner of Umbrella Salon in San Jose, CA
Show off your self-confidence with a shorter cut in 2014. Many people don’t realize just how versatile short hair can be, but you can create many looks for both day and night (I love to dress up a ‘do with Original Pomade for a sleek evening look).

NYC-based cosmetic dentists from Lowenberg, Lituchy & Kantor
“Watch what you eat and drink in 2014. Cut down on tea, red wine, coffee and colored berries, as these are major culprits that stain teeth. If you can’t fully kick that habit, drinking with a straw will help. It is also good to keep Vaseline in your purse, so you can rub a layer on the surface of teeth before drinking these staining beverages. The Vaseline will act as a barrier for a few hours.

Joey George, editorial hairstylist
Resolve to indulge yourself. Even the most simplistic salon service can transform a woman emotionally and physically. Whether it’s a 15-minute treatment, a bouncy blowout, a manicure or a full makeover, make some time to treat yourself regularly.

Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, cosmetic dermatologist
Avoid sugar/carbs for a month and watch how healthy your skin will look. Replace these carbs with protein and vegetables that are rich in color.

Adam Livermore, Oribe Educator and stylist at Muze Salon in NYC
Repeat after me: "This year, I will treat my hair like I treat I treat my Hermes scarf."

Everyone needs to understand that hair is a delicate fabric and it needs to be cared for like one. Imagine if you had a beautiful silk scarf and washed it in Tide every day, then dried it in the dryer and ironed it on the ironing board. How long would it last? Delicate fabrics need to be cleansed carefully, properly softened with conditioners and handled with care. Luckily for those of you who are obsessed with having a squeaky clean scalp or hair that’s ironed to perfection every day, Oribe has gentle cleansers like Ultra Gentle Shampoo and heat-protecting sprays like Soft Lacquer and Royal Blowout.

Stick to this mantra, and your hair will have the best year of its life.

Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, DC
The best beauty resolution (that also feels good too) is to get a full seven to eight hours of sleep every night. It helps reduce eye puffiness, acne breakouts and slows down the effects of aging on the skin.

Joanna Vargas, celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection
Make a commitment to eating or drinking one thing per day that helps the skin stay healthy and glowing. A green juice daily is a great way to chase away breakouts and dull winter skin. Ring in the new year with a simple way to making the skin looks flawless!

Steven Schmidt, Oribe Educator and stylist at Oribe Salon in Miami
Learn how to help your hair beat the heat in 2014. Use a leave-in conditioner to protect your ends, then choose the proper heat-protecting product to get your desired style. Remember to never allow the blow-dryer to touch the hair as you dry. Your hair is far too delicate to take this amount of heat directly applied to it. If you stick to this resolution, your hair can show major improvement almost immediately.

Shawn McLoughlin, national makeup artist and trainer at Sisley
“Every woman should resolve to use an intensive mask treatment at least once a week. Even women who already follow a good basic skincare routine need to realize that their skin may require different treatment with stronger ingredients throughout the year. The new year is a great time to introduce a hydrating mask, for example, because the dry winter air is slowly draining the radiance from our complexions. Most women complain they simply forget or don't have time for masks, so my tip is to find a no-rinse mask and leave it on your nightstand. You will always see it when you get in bed for the night, and it can be the last thing you do before you go to sleep. Sisley's Hydra-Flash Mask and Express Flower Gel Mask are both no-rinse options that are great for restoring moisture during the winter. They're easy to apply in bed and you can rub any excess into your hands for an added benefit.

In terms of your makeup routine, resolve to switch things up and learn how to look more natural. I love a natural eyeliner look. It's possible to intensify the lash line and still keep a clean, very natural look using two coordinating kohl formula eyeliners. Smudge a rich, darker color that's not black, such as espresso brown, charcoal or a deep green, into top lashes and on to the inside rim of the eye. Use a softer color (khaki or plum), to line the bottom lashes. You'll get a more defined lash line without the heavy "made up" look that comes from lining above the top lashes.

Deborah Lippmann, founder of Deborah Lippmann
Take care of your nails and let them grow free. If your nails need a little help, I recommend Vivascal; although it's recommended for hair, I find it helps nails grow as well.

Ronnie Stam, Oribe Educator and stylist at Muze Salon in NYC
Think NEW for 2014 and experiment with your style. Don’t fall into the same old routine; commit to trying something different at least once a week, whether it’s a fresh take on a ponytail, a new updo, a more—or less—voluminous blowout, or even a great new accessory.

The Gut Microbiome of the Vector Lutzomyia longipalpis Is Essential for Survival of Leishmania infantum.

MBio. 2017 Jan 17;8(1):

Authors: Kelly PH, Bahr SM, Serafim TD, Ajami NJ, Petrosino JF, Meneses C, Kirby JR, Valenzuela JG, Kamhawi S, Wilson ME

Abstract
The vector-borne disease leishmaniasis, caused by Leishmania species protozoa, is transmitted to humans by phlebotomine sand flies. Development of Leishmania to infective metacyclic promastigotes in the insect gut, a process termed metacyclogenesis, is an essential prerequisite for transmission. Based on the hypothesis that vector gut microbiota influence the development of virulent parasites, we sequenced midgut microbiomes in the sand fly Lutzomyia longipalpis with or without Leishmania infantum infection. Sucrose-fed sand flies contained a highly diverse, stable midgut microbiome. Blood feeding caused a decrease in microbial richness that eventually recovered. However, bacterial richness progressively decreased in L. infantum-infected sand flies. Acetobacteraceae spp. became dominant and numbers of Pseudomonadaceae spp. diminished coordinately as the parasite underwent metacyclogenesis and parasite numbers increased. Importantly, antibiotic-mediated perturbation of the midgut microbiome rendered sand flies unable to support parasite growth and metacyclogenesis. Together, these data suggest that the sand fly midgut microbiome is a critical factor for Leishmania growth and differentiation to its infective state prior to disease transmission.
IMPORTANCE: Leishmania infantum, a parasitic protozoan causing fatal visceral leishmaniasis, is transmitted to humans through the bite of the sand fly Lutzomyia longipalpis Development of the parasite to its virulent metacyclic state occurs in the sand fly gut. In this study, the microbiota within the Lu. longipalpis midgut was delineated by 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequencing, revealing a highly diverse community composition that lost diversity as parasites developed to their metacyclic state and increased in abundance in infected flies. Perturbing sand fly gut microbiota with an antibiotic cocktail, which alone had no effect on either the parasite or the fly, arrested both the development of virulent parasites and parasite expansion. These findings indicate the importance of bacterial commensals within the insect vector for the development of virulent pathogens, and raise the possibility that impairing the microbial composition within the vector might represent a novel approach to control of vector-borne diseases.

          You Shouldn’t Feed Your Baby With The Foods That You’ve Been Chewing!   
As a parent, you always thought that your baby child doesn’t able to chew the foods properly. Thus, you’ll chew the foods on behalf of your child and let them eat your chewing!

Honestly, instead of disgusting, it also a very unhealthy habit as well. Do you know that our mouth is full with dangerous bacteria and viruses? The baby’s digestion system won’t able to defeat some of the dangerous bacteria and viruses. As a result, they’ll be getting ill, thanks to our smart “feeding idea”!

If you’re worry that you child didn’t chew the foods accordingly, then you can chop the foods into slices or use a small teaspoon to feed your child.

One more thing, you’ve to let your child start to eat by himself/herself, after they’ve reached 18 months. By this way, it not only more hygiene but it also help to cultivate children’s ability to live independently!

          You Are Supposed Not To Feed Your Baby with Yogurt!   
One of my friends, Kammy told me that she loved to feed her 10 months old baby girl, Cassandra with yogurt, as she thinks it’s a healthy drink!

When I heard what she has said, I am shocked and advise her to stop immediately!

Although the yogurt can produce many useful antibiotics, and it’s good to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria, but it also can destroy the body’s beneficial bacteria growing condition as well.

So, if you feed yogurt to your baby who under 3 years old, it probably can lead to several symptoms, such as vomiting and gangrenous enteritis.

It’s better to feed your baby with breast or formula milk than yogurt!

          The Best Way to Avoid the Cross-spread of Germs!   
Do you know that the babies’ tooth decays probably didn’t cause by the sweet foods, but maybe from the mother herself?

You might be wondering, “What the hell am I talking about?” Well, I know that most of the mother love to test the temperature of the foods, before they feed their babies!

For your information, the bacteria inside the mother’s oral will be transmitting to the spoon. When the baby is being fed with the spoon, then baby is having a higher chance of getting tooth decay!

So, as a smart mother, you should use two different spoons: One for testing the food’s temperature, while the other one is for feeding your child!

          Ice storm warning has ended. Focus shifts to residents without hydro.   

Waterloo Region - Regional road crews were out last night and have been out all day working on the roads clearing debris and falling tree branches, however due to dropping temperatures, widespread icy conditions still exist – extreme caution is recommended if you have to travel. Staying off the roads is preferred.

If traffic lights are out, treat the intersection as a four-way stop.

Please stay away from downed branches, especially those that have been taken down by power lines. Wires are live and very dangerous. Please report downed wires to, Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro at 519-745-4771 and in the City of Waterloo and Townships of Wellesley and Woolwich contact Waterloo North Hydro - 519-886-5090.

Now that the storm has passed, the biggest concern is the number of areas without power. Hydro crews are doing their best to repair the lines as quickly as possible.

Those without power should take precautions to avoid any fire hazards.

  • Do not leave candles unattended
  • Use flashlights, not candles
  • Don't use charcoal, gas barbecues or home generators indoors. They give off deadly carbon monoxide
  • If using a portable generator ensure it is well ventilated to the outside
  • Ensure that all electrical appliances are switched to off during a power outage

Handling refrigerated and frozen food during a power failure

Freezing stops the growth of bacteria. Do not open the refrigerator or freezer door unless absolutely necessary in order to maintain the cold temperature.

  • A full freezer will keep food frozen for about 48 hours. A freezer that is half full will keep food frozen for about 24 hours.
  • An unopened refrigerator will keep food cold for about 4 hours.
  • If available, add ice to the refrigerator to keep the food at a safe temperature if the power will be out for long periods of time.
  • Do not place frozen food outside, even in winter. The sun’s rays could thaw frozen food even when the outdoor temperature is very cold, and animals could contaminate your food.
  • If you know that a power failure will last for a long period of time, see if you can take the food to a friend nearby who has power.

Handling refrigerated and frozen food after a power failure

  • Discard any thawed food that has been at room temperature for two or more hours, and any food that has an obvious unusual colour or odour. Keep in mind that food contaminated with bacteria does not necessarily smell bad or appear spoiled.
  • Food that still contains ice crystals or feels refrigerator-cold can be re-frozen.
  • If raw food has leaked during thawing, clean and disinfect the areas the food has touched. Do not reuse the cloths you have used for clean-up until they have been disinfected by washing in hot water.

Warming Centres are being set up in the following locations:

  • The township of Woolwich has declared an emergency and will be setting up a "reception centre". The centre is now open at the Woolwich Memorial Centre located at 24 Snyder Avenue South in Elmira with the assistance of Region of Waterloo Social Services and will be open as long as necessary.
  • Cambridge is setting up a warming centre at City Hall, the Bowman Room for the public,
  • Kitchener is setting up a warming centre at the Kitchener Auditorium for the general public,
  • City of Waterloo will have warming centres at RIM Park, Albert McCormack Arena, and Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex,
  • North Dumfries Township have opened up the Fire Hall on Scott Street as a warming centre for the community.

Residents without power should run their water taps periodically to prevent pipes from freezing!

Updates and more safety tips will be posted on the Region’s website, www.regionofwaterloo.ca, Twitter @regionwaterloo, and Facebook.

          Apple Cider   

Many people enjoy the taste of a fresh glass of apple cider; however it is important to ensure that products have been pasteurized prior to consuming them.

Pasteurization is a process which helps to kill harmful bacteria such as E. coli O157:H7 and Salmonella. These harmful microorganisms can lead to foodborne illness, particularly among young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

Contamination can happen during the cider making process, from apples falling onto the ground, or coming into contact with the fecal matter of animals. When apples are pressed to make cider, contaminated and un-contaminated apples may mix and bacteria can be present in the final product.

In the same way many people recognize the importance of cooking meats to help kill harmful microorganisms and prevent foodborne illness, it is important to consider the risks of unpasteurized cider specifically among the young, old, and immunocompromised.

If you’re not sure the apple cider has been pasteurized, protect yourself by boiling the juice before you drink it. Boiling unpasteurized apple cider can help kill any bacteria. Boiled cider can also be stored in the fridge for 7-10 days.

Unpasteurized juice/cider can often be found at local orchards, roadside stands, farmers markets, country fairs, and in refrigerated sections at the grocery store.

Take the necessary precautions to ensure you and your family are protected from foodborne illnesses while enjoying apple cider this season.

For additional food safety information, please call Region of Waterloo Public Health, Food Safety Program at 519-883-2008, or check out our Food Safety website.

          Pack a Safe Lunch   

September has arrived and it’s time to head back to school! Region of Waterloo Public Health has some tips to share about how to safely pack and enjoy school lunches.

Foodborne illness can be caused by the growth of bacteria in food at temperatures between 4C-60C (40F-140F), often called the danger zone. Health Canada estimates that there are anywhere from 11 to 13 million cases of foodborne illness in Canada every year. Many of these cases could have been prevented if safe food handling practices were followed.

When packing lunches for school or work, follow these simple food safety tips to reduce the incidence of foodborne illness and protect your family’s health:

  • Wash hands in warm soapy water before handling food. Make sure to remind your children to wash their hands before eating.
  • Wash lunch bags and thermoses after each use. Seams and corners can harbor bacteria if not thoroughly cleaned.
  • Keep surfaces used to prepare lunches such as countertops, cutting boards, and utensils clean and sanitized.
  • Cook meats and poultry thoroughly. Cool them quickly and keep them refrigerated until the sandwich or salad is made.
  • Store perishable foods such as sandwiches or salads made with eggs, cooked meats, or poultry, at 4C/40F or colder in the refrigerator. If a refrigerator is not available, be sure to use an insulated lunch box and reusable ice packs. Freezing a beverage that is packed with the lunch will also help keep the food cool.
  • Keep food items such as soups, stews and chilli at 60C/140F or warmer. Keep them hot in a clean thermal container with a tight fitting lid.
  • When it is not possible to keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold, consider foods that are safe to eat at room temperature. Bacteria do not grow in foods that are high in acid or low in moisture. The following foods are safe at room temperature: crackers, bread, cereal, whole fruits, dried fruits, canned foods.

By following these simple steps, you can protect yourself and your family and prevent foodborne illness.

For additional food safety information, please call Region of Waterloo Public Health, Food Safety Program at 519-575-4400, or check out our Food Safety page.

          Have you had your well water tested recently? Now it's even easier   

Waterloo Region – It's estimated that less than 25 per cent of rural residents in Waterloo Region have their water tested annually. Provincial guidelines recommend that private well owners test their water at least three times per year to know if their drinking water is safe. Region of Waterloo Public Health is encouraging rural residents to have their water tested by increasing the frequency of water testing services in rural areas. Water testing services continue to be free.

Beginning in August 2013, six rural drop-off locations across Waterloo Region will accept water samples every Tuesday for testing. Public Health buildings at 99 Regina St. S (Waterloo) and 150 Main St. (Cambridge) will continue to accept water samples Monday through Thursday.

Approximately 9,000 rural households in Waterloo Region rely on private water sources such as wells for their drinking water. To ensure your drinking water is safe for consumption, you should test your water at least three times per year. Water containing bacteria (e.g. E. coli) or other contaminants may not taste or look different than normal.

Tips for keeping your drinking water safe:

  1. Keep potential contaminants away from your well by minimizing nearby activities such as farming practices or animal grazing
  2. Consider treating your water with a disinfection system using chlorination or ultraviolet light treatment devices
  3. Maintain your system by checking your equipment regularly

Information on wells, water sampling, and disinfection systems can be obtained from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Public Health Ontario, and the Ontario Ministry of Environment. For additional information see Public Health's website or call 519-575-4400 ext 5147 to talk with a Public Health Inspector.

          Easter Egg Safety   

Easter egg decorating and hunting is a popular activity for families. To ensure an enjoyable experience with your family, it is important to remember that eggs can be hazardous if they are not handled properly. Eggs must be stored, prepared and handled properly to prevent cross contamination, growth of bacteria and food borne illness. Eggs are porous and can be contaminated with harmful bacteria including Salmonella. This bacterium can cause illness including symptoms of nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever.

To have a safe Easter egg hunt and to protect your family from possible food borne illness, follow these simple food safety tips:

  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds before and after handling any eggs.
  • Clean and sanitize your work area before and after working with your Easter eggs. Clean food contact surfaces with warm water and a detergent. Rinse with water and sanitize using a bleach solution of 200 ppm (1 teaspoon of bleach / 1 litre of water).
  • Cool hard boiled eggs after boiling by running cold water over the eggs and refrigerating them immediately.
  • Use only clean, uncracked eggs.
  • When colouring use non-toxic food grade dyes (liquid food colouring, fruit drink powders), and store eggs in a covered container.
  • Refrigerate eggs at 4°C or less before and after dyeing. Eggs should never be left out at room temperature for longer than two hours if you intend to eat them.
  • Coloured eggs can be safely refrigerated for one week.
  • When hiding the eggs, keep them away from potential sources of contamination including pets, or dirty surfaces.
  • Discard eggs that are visibly dirty, cracked or that have not been stored in the refrigerator within two hours.

IntroductionMalt Leaven Bread


Modern farming techniques, including chemical fertilizer, that have been used for more than a hundred years, have led to a severe degeneration of our food crops, which has been noticed as early as the 1920's:

Crops would not grow in the same fields where they had been growing for generations, nutritional value was lost, crops became susceptible to disease, and they just did not show the vitality they used to have.

Surplus nitrogen from weapon manufacturing in the 2ndW.W. was converted into chemical fertilizer production. By the 1970's this led to a 8-12 fold yield increase. Quality was sacrificed for quantity.
The nutritional balance was distorted. Now wheat had an increased carbohydrate, less protein and sacrificing other valuable nutrients that it's ancestors had.
Less protein also meant less gluten, which is needed to make a bread rise. So scientists developed a more powerful, stretchable gluten, that is also water-insoluble, meaning hard to digest. This is one of the causes of the gluten allergies, but also the changed carbohydrate is giving people digestive problems.

At the same time that chemical fertilizer was introduced, also monoculture yeast was developed, for a more dependable way to leaven bread. Bread has many valuable nutrients, essential for healthy brain function, among them zinc, copper, and magnesium. But these nutrients can only be absorbed when bacteria break down the phytic acid that prevents the absorption of these nutrients. With fast rising monoculture yeast the bacteria do not have the chance to break down those nutrients.

When new methods prove to be wrong we tend to go back to the past. Here we find the old way of making sourdough. But new methods appear to carry us forward. Instead of going back to the past I was thinking of a way to create a natural yeast, not through de-spiritualized scientific methods, but through holistic spiritually guided methods.

Yeast is originally a byproduct of the beer production, made from sprouted barley. What better way to bring back the Life Forces than using the force of the sprouted barley which seems the perfect carrier of a growing, rising force. From sprouted, then dried and ground barley a batter is made. This attracts and advances the wild yeast while not eliminating the lactic acid bacteria when ripe. This culture is then dried. From this a starter can be made in 1 or 2 days to make a bread that is completely unique, neither a monoculture yeast, nor a sourdough.

With it a new force is introduced into the bread that makes it very light and completely digestible, including breaking down the light gluten of Spelt. Spelt is the uncorrupted twin sister of wheat that never had a need for chemical fertilizer, pesticide or herbicide. Spelt cannot be harvested with the combine, because of its husk, which protects it. It then has a chance to fully ripen on the field which helps the digestibility.

With the Malt-Leaven even a Rye bread is not dense, but so surprisingly light that it is even becoming a teenagers favorite.

Here are the reasons why the Malt Leaven bread is the bread for all of us to rescue our immune system from the attack by modern food and agribusiness:

  • no yeast
  • no wheat
  • no sourdough
  • whole grain
  • fresh stone ground
  • healthy bacteria
  • completely digestible
  • beyond organic, contains spiritualized water

News from the Philmont Community Bakery.

Without zinc, you can't think”

Did you know that zinc is an important brain nutrient? Did you also know that wheat (and spelt maybe even more) supplies this and other important brain nutrients?
Important also to know is that these nutrients are only available when the dough is properly fermented, breaking down the phytic acid that inhibits the absorption of these nutrients.

The malt leaven bread is properly fermented and contains wild yeast and bacteria that break down the phytic acid. That way you will absorb the zinc, copper, magnesium and other important nutrients in the grain.
Bread made with yeast leaves no chance for the bacteria to do their job, and so the above mentioned nutrients cannot be absorped. This could in my opinion very well be another factor in the rise of brain diseases like Alzheimer's, Autism, and A.D.D. (AAA, triple A).

Malt Leaven Bread is based on sprouted barley.
It has:
  1. no yeast
  2. beyond organic, contains ascension day dew drops
  3. spelt or rye, no degenerated grains, e.g. wheat.
  4. pre-digested light gluten

Spelt has a light gluten that is completely different from the powerful stretchable gluten in modern wheat that is causing digestive problems.

Varieties :
  • Whole Spelt

          Interview with a Friend   


SEARCH FOR THE HOLY GRAIN

Interview with a friend


Friend:
Koen, that looks like a really interesting bread that you made, can you tell me more about it and what you are doing?



Koen:”You know how so many people today suffer from allergies, struggle with weight issues and that they can't eat bread anymore?

That is because the grain is severely degenerated, because of modern farming techniques, and this has been going on for more than a hundred years!

What I do is to make bread that is made from grains that are not degenerated, that are uncorrupted. Grains that have been cultivate from wild grasses”.

Friend: “What do you mean by degenerated?”

Koen:”Plants, and human beings for that matter, take not only nutrition from the soil, but also from the light of the sun and many other cosmic forces. By feeding the plant chemical fertilizer we kind of cut off the connection between the plant and the earthly and heavenly forces, the plant becomes weak and lazy.
Chemical fertilizer has increased the yield of wheat by 8 or twelve fold. But it also increased the carbohydrate content, at the expense of other nutrients like protein, minerals, vitamins, Omega3 oils, etc.
So modern wheat has less protein, and gluten is part of the protein. To still make decent bread out of it a gluten was developed that is extra powerful, more stretchable.
Add to this the fact that at the same time chemical fertilizer came in use, also compressed ,monoculture yeast was used to leaven the bread much faster. That left no time for the bacteria to pre-digest the gluten and other important nutrients.
So now you understand why degenerated grain and bread with yeast can make it hard to digest”.

Friend:”Where did you find this grain and how did this all get started?”

Koen:”Well you brought me over to Mr. and Mrs.Rossi's house. And Mr. Rossi was a retired science teacher, and a home bread baker. So we started talking about bread. I told what I knew and he said I should really teach a class. I had developed my own natural leaven in the 1980's when I had my bakery in Holland. So I wanted to teach that bread, which was inspired by Hugo Erbe, who had made a leaven based on the honey/salt recipe with the addition of pea flour. When I did some research on Hugo Erbe, I also discovered that he had been working on the regeneration of the grain, starting from wild grasses. That seemed pretty incredible to me. I started to ask around if anybody in this country was growing the Erbe grain. I got in touch with all the experts in bio-dynamic farming. They knew about it, but no one was growing it. Finally I was directed to Caroline Gordon who was a German baker in Harlemville NY.
She said I should contact her old neighbor at the Keyserlingk Institute in Southern Germany. They themselves did not have the grain, but Hugo Erbe had had his farm right in their neigborhood, and there may be a breeder who might still have this grain. Mind you Hugo Erbe died in 1965, but there had been some efforts to grow his miracle grain. He accomplished everything and more that modern farming is trying to accomplish, not with chemical methods but through spiritual science. You have to read about it in “Hugo Erbe's New Bio-Dynamic Preparations”, available from the Bio-Dynamic Farming Association.
I decided I had to go to Germany, and look for it in person. I went to the Keyserlingk Institute, which very graciously gave me hospitality, and one day researcher Udo took me to this breeder. This man had devoted his life to this grain, but he was frustrated that no one really wanted to work with it, probably because it took real dedication, because otherwise it had the tendency to return to its wild origin. The grains were all neatly organized in boxes maybe not touched in several years
Both Udo and I looked at it and immediately we felt an emotional shock looking at the beauty of this grain and felt that this was the real thing. I took some of the spelt and Udo took most of the other grains. We planted in the fall, he in Germany I in Harlemville NY. We both saw that the germination rate was nearly perfect, even after all those years, a sign of strong Life Forces.

It will take a few years to increase it to have enough for bread baking, this is why I really need to go back, besides I found out a few other farmers may be growing it in Northern Italy and Southern Germany.
In the mean time I have made some wonderful breads from rye and spelt which are not as degenerated as modern wheat. And I get great results, hard to tell even the difference in rising power compared with bakers yeast. I believe I am ready to try croissants with my leaven.”

Friend:”What is your ultimate goal?”

Koen:”You see there is a much greater issue behind the gluten allergies. This is basically the breakdown of our immune system and can lead way beyond to hardly being able to digest any food, not just wheat.
What is going on is the withdrawal of the Life Forces, because of that disconnect between the earthly and cosmic forces, because of modern farming techniques. You can't just increase yield 8 or twelve times and not see any consequences. World hunger is not as severe a crisis as it was, but now we are overfed and under nourished.
What is needed in the world is a different attitude towards life, an attitude of dedication. I like to say production invites corruption. We need to develop a spiritual science, as Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner has urged us to do back in the 1920's. Almost 100 years have past since then. If we cannot return to the spiritual path, to go with God, Vaya Con Dios, then we are doomed to fail. I really like this beautiful prayer by Adam Bittleston, where he says:

As we go out into the world as we have made it,
Everywhere there speaks to us forgetfulness of the Spirit
If human work were to be without love the earth would become a bleak and barren desert.
Through forgetfulness of the Spirit, Love ebbs away.
Bring to mind in us o Christ,
Inspirer of true human love
How we have come to the earth from the fields of Light
From the heights of the spirit.
May remembrance of God grow strong in our souls
Overcoming the mists which hide the meaning in the work of each day.”

My work has just begun, I have to do much research and testing, visit farmers, breeders and bakers over in Europe, so that bread can be the healthy staff of life again, and people can eat Life Giving healthy bread. To support this project is to support the continuation of healthy life on earth.

Thank you for your support!

          Is Your Yeast Infection Chronic?   
There are plenty of people who suffer from a yeast infection and almost all women are going to have one at some point in their life that needs taken care of.' There are times, however, whenever yeast infections begin to recur regularly and they may even get to the point where they can be considered chronic.' What is it that makes a yeast infection get to this point and what is there that we can do about it?' After all, many of us with chronic yeast infections have simply given up on ever doing anything about them at all.




In order to understand why the yeast infection became chronic, you need to first understand why you get a yeast infection.' Yeast is present all around us at all times and it is also in our body many times.' For the most part, a healthy body is able to fend off the yeast by using some of the good bacteria that is present in it.' It is only whenever this bacteria begins to disappear from our body that the yeast is able to get a foothold.' This typically occurs whenever we experience long periods of sickness or perhaps when we are taking antibiotics for some kind of other infection.




What is the first thing that most people do whenever they get a yeast infection?' They run to the drugstore and get cream that promises to be able to take care of the problem within just a few days.' Although it does a good job of helping us to be more comfortable, it is not really taking care of the problem.' What it is doing is reducing the amount of yeast in our body but it is leaving the stronger yeast behind.' Whenever it grows again, and it will, it becomes a stronger infection that is more difficult to treat.' With each successive yeast infection, it will become stronger until it becomes a super infection.




If you have reached this point, where your yeast infections are chronic, you can try treating the condition naturally.' The easiest way for you to do this is to apply all natural yogurt to the area and to eat yogurt every day.' You might also want to consider drinking some apple cider vinegar daily as well as eating a clove of garlic.' These natural foods will help to bring your body back into balance so that it can naturally fight the infection instead of you treating it at the drugstore.

          Five Tasty Food Substitutions to Make Now   
For many of us, eating well is a process with a big learning curve. We aren't taught what is truly healthy for us and sometimes it takes a while to wean ourselves off packaged and processed food. The benefits, however, of making a slow transition to eating whole and healthy foods are numerous'including the fact that we are taking the time to find out what foods taste good to us and organically including them in our lives as opposed to the more common crash dieting and sudden extreme food changes that are part and parcel of our culture's dysfunction around food and health. With this in mind, the act of substituting food that we love but that isn't so good for us with healthy alternatives is a great way to start this process'Here are five easy changes to make in your diet that can improve your health and waistline:




Yogurt: One great superfood, plain yogurt has such balanced amounts of carbs, fat, and protein that it can satiate you while keeping blood sugar levels stable for hours. In a study from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, subjects on a low-calorie diet that included yogurt lost 61 percent more fat overall and 81 percent more belly fat than people on a similar plan but without yogurt. The key here is to stick with plain, organic yogurt as sweetened yogurt can have more sugar than ice cream. Good substitutions:




Yogurt makes a great substitue for sour cream and mayo in dips and as a topping for potatoes, soups, and mexican food.




Craving something sweet? I like to take plain yogurt, add some berries and a small amount of honey, maple syrup, or stevia and mix it all up. A great substitute for ice cream.




Almond Butter: This is a no brainer, if you can't keep your hands away from the peanut butter. Almond butter tastes just as rich and tasty but is much better for you. Studies have shown that eating bread with almond butter lowers the glycemic index of the bread, even white bread, so that it keeps blood sugar levels from spiking. Almonds are also a great source of protein, amino acids, and vitamins. They are great for digestion and help keep the body from becoming too acidic. Good substitutions:




On bread and crackers instead of peanut butter




Add to oatmeal for protein




Make a sauce for stir fried veggies and serve with brown rice.




Quinoa: This Peruvian superfood is high in both fiber (2.5 grams in 1/2 a cup) and protein as well as a nearly complete source of amino acids. It keeps you full longer than pasta or rice, is versatile, and a pot will stay fresh all week. Substitutions to try:




Instead of rice with stirfry, fish, or meat.




Added to salads Eaten often in Peru as a morning cereal with a bit of milk and honey or chopped fruit and nuts.




Sardines: With levels of mercury rocketing sky high in tuna and many wild fish and pollution concerns with farmed fish, sardines are a natural and super healthy answer. Packed full of omega 3 fatty acids and extremely high in calcium, sardines are also low on the food and mercury chain. Many people shy away from sardines because they taste 'fishy' but this can be solved by soaking them in milk for an hour or so. Substitutions:




Instead of anchovies in dressings, in ceasar salads, and on pizza. Use chopped sardines in place of tuna in cold and hot sandwiches.




Berries: Most especially, blueberries and goji berries are the best fruits to be eating right now. Blueberries are high in antioxidants and fiber, while goji berries contain 18 amino acids, making them a great source of protein and more beta carotene than carrots. No fail substitutions:




Instead of bananas in your cereal or oatmeal, try blueberries. Unlike bananas which can spike blood sugar, blueberries help keep insulin levels stable while providing a wide range of nutrients. Add dried goji berries to a mixture of nuts for stamina boosting trail mix or add them to green tea for tartness, eating them after you have finished the tea.

          Exploring Barrel Aging with Amsterdam Brewery (Part 1)   
In this episode of Ontario Brewer, BeerologyTM’s Mirella Amato explores the topic of barrel aging beer with head brewer Iain McOustra and brewer Cody Nolan from Amsterdam Brewing Co.

Cody and Iain both talk about the new brewing facilities that they’re working in. They then turn their attention to barrel-aged beers, explaining how they use barrels and the learning curve involved in working with new barrels instead of attaining barrel-aged notes using wood chips. They provide details on how they choose which beers to barrel age, how they decide the amount of time a beer will spend in a barrel as well as the various yeasts and bacteria that are involved in barrel-aging and souring beer.

The two brewers then talk more specifically about the feature Amsterdam Beers for this month’s podcasts: Barrel Aged Rye Peppercorn Saison & De Wallen Barrel Aged Sour Framboise.

          Comment on Food Containing Ribonucleotides – The Ribo Rash from Food Additives 635, 627 and 631 by Jennifer Thompson   
Dear Rebecca, I can't say for sure if you are having a reaction like the ribo rash, but I can tell you that in my personal experience I have had all of your symptoms when having a reaction to the ribo rash additives. Everything you describe - including the red dots, pain in the joints and even vomiting - I have also experienced. When it used to happen to me (now no longer does because I avoid those foods - Chinese food would be a complete disaster for me and is something I have not eaten in more than 12 years), I would take 4-6 <a href="https://www.iherb.com/tr/cb?pcodes=CLF-03493&rcode=JHJ003" rel="nofollow">Activated Charcoal capsules</a> with a small glass of water immediately upon realized that I got "hit." Then I would wait 20-30 minutes and re-assess how I feel. If still feeling itchiness, pain or nausea I take another 4-6 capsules with water. During that time, I will not eat any other food to allow the charcoal to completely absorb the bad stuff. Even if it was food poisoning, the charcoal will help for that too...although with bacterial food poisoning I would never get red bumps or an itchy rash. The charcoal always helped me to reduce the impact of the additives because it can absorb the chemical additives. After 2 hours of feeling better, I may eat some organic banana just to settle my stomach. And then more fresh fruits in the next 24 hours to help the colon move out all the food (and charcoal - on that note it does turn the poo black). I would never take charcoal every day because it will also absorb the nutrition from food. I now use it for a remedy to deal with my food additive intolerances in cases where I didn't know that something bad was in the food. It's rare these days that I need to take it, maybe a few times a year...but I always have it on hand for the times when I may need it. My best, Jennifer

          Lunchboxing   
These past days, I've decided that my stomach and campus food aren't ever getting back together.  So, I've taken to packing my own lunches!
The lessons I've learned while packing lunch feel rather valuable, and so I will share with the Internet my lunch ideas from time to time, as well as just some good lunch-packing tips to keep in mind if you want to take a home cooked meal to work.

The sample recipe I've included is Japanese inspired.  The main part of it is rice, fermented soybeans, and an egg.  The side dish is salad, and the snacks are nori and carrots.  The process takes about an hour and a half, but you will be actively working for 15 minutes at most.  The rest of the time is just for the rice to cook.

Rules of Thumb:
♕ If your lunchbox is solid, try to have it just filled completely.  This reduces how much your food jiggles around as you carry it.
♕ While preparing your food, think of meals that you enjoy cold.
♕ Also, think of foods that become better the longer they sit, like marinades or tiramisus which absorb cream.
♕ Try to increase your collection of small containers, a few centimeters tall.  These are excellent for holding garnishes like sauces, berries, nuts, and herbs separate from your meal until right before eating.
♕ Following that strain of thought, try to keep as many things as possible separate in your lunch.  Sandwiches are oft best fresh assembled, so keep the bread away from the soggy components if at all possible.
♕ Invest in reusable plastic eating utensils, plastic baggies, and plastic containers for maximum glass-shard prevention.  Tight screw on lids are nice too, lest your lunch gets leaky and freaky.
♕ Know how you respond to certain foods.  I get very drowsy after eating Greek yoghurt always, so when I want it for lunch I also pack some coffee.
♕ As always, try to keep things healthy.  A multicolored lunch filled with whole grains, good proteins you don't mind eating cold, and many fruits and vegetables will provide great satiety.
♕ If you are worried about having halitosis after finishing lunch, you can pack some foods which naturally cleanse the breath, such as a few cardamom pods or cilantro.

Sample Lunch Ingredients:

 1 cup / 90g forbidden rice (a purple glutinous rice sold in many Asian supermarkets)
 2 cups / 475mL water
 1 pouch (60g) natto
 1 egg
 1T / 15g mustard
 .5T / 7mL soya sauce
 1 cup / 50g torn lettuce
 1t / 3g black sesame seeds
 2T / 5mL salad dressing
 Handful carrots, sliced as you wish.
 1-2 sheets toasted nori, cut into ~6cm by ~3cm rectangles
Under the egg, bottom left, sits the natto, while at the top
you can see the forbidden rice in all of its blackness.
I use a small, rinsed container from peanut butter for my
main dish.

Procedure

For the rice

 Boil the water, add rice, cover
 Simmer for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally
 Take off heat and let sit for 15 more minutes.
 Spoon about a fourth of the recipe into a small sealable plastic container.
note: as soon as you are done with the rice, refrigerate.  Forbidden rice gets its deep purple color from minerals and all sorts of healthy molecules the grains contain inside.  While this makes the food nutritious for you and me, it also makes it delicious for many bacteria.  I left the cooked rice on my stovetop overnight, and in the morning there was so much bacterial growth in it that it had to be disposed of.
If you cook brown or wild rice instead of forbidden, the same warning applies.  The risk is lessened with white rice.  You should still refrigerate it though.
 Top with natto.
 On a pan, break an egg and cook to desired doneness.
 Top natto and rice.
 Into separate container(s), pour mustard and soy sauce. 
note: they are added to the natto and rice.


For the salad

 Tear leaves, cover in sesame seeds.  Put into container.
 Pour dressing into separate container.

Assembly

 Into one plastic bag, place carrots.
 Into another, place nori.
 Arrange your salad and rice containers.
 Into remaining space, put dressing containers.
 Place plastic bags on top of containers.
 Insert eating utensil (chopsticks or fork)  
 Refrigerate until ready to go

♕ The morning of, I made some green tea to go with the meal.

The term "influenza" refers to illness caused by influenza virus. This is commonly also called "flu", but many different illnesses cause "flu-like" systemic and respiratory symptoms such as fever, chills, aches and pains, cough, and sore throat. In addition, influenza itself can cause many different illness patterns, ranging from mild common cold symptoms to typical "flu" to life-threatening pneumonia and other complications, including secondary bacterial infections.

Uncomplicated influenza gets better with or without treatment, but may cause substantial discomfort and limitation of activity before getting better. Complications of influenza can include bacterial infections, viral pneumonia, and cardiac and other organ system abnormalities.

Use of antiviral drugs does not eliminate the risk of complications, and some complications can be life-threatening. In addition, influenza viruses can become resistant to specific anti-influenza antiviral drugs, and all of the drugs have side effects. My son, Karel caught a virus when he was a year old, it was hemophalus influenza, that caused a bacterial meningitis. During the illness his life was in danger, but the drugs used to cure him, caused lasting neural deafness and epilepsy.

I think we should take normal precautions, but review the panic response of the 1976 epidemic and the rush to vaccinate. More people died and suffered paralysis from the vaccine, then from the virus. Only 1 person at Ft. Dix actually died from the 1976 swine flu epidemic.

          Vitamin B1 thiamine   

Vitamin B1 or thiamine is an essential component, that guarantee the proper functioning of our body. It is useful in particular for nervous, cardiovascular and digestive system, and it should be properly integrated through alimentation or supplements, because its deficiencies can lead to severe problems.

What is Vitamin B1?

[caption id="attachment_681" align="alignright" width="230"]BRANCHED-CHAIN AMINO ACIDS: Uses, Side Effects and Interactions VITAMINB B1 and BCAA[/caption]

Vitamin B1 is also known as thiamine, but its first name was aneurin. It is so called for the presence of a thiazole and a pyrimidinic rings, linked together by a methylic group. It is a vitamin belonging to the B complex, and it is essential for the human and animal nutrition. Vitamin B is synthesized only by vegetables, bacteria and fungi, so it can be found mostly in vegetables, but also in meat, in form of phosphate.

Vitamin B1 or thiamine in our body it is present in the free form, or esterified as TMP or thiamine monopshosphate, TPP or thiamine pyrophosphate, and TTP or thiamine ttiphosphate. Once ingested, vitamin B1 is present into the lumen of the digestive system in its free form, which can be easily absorbed by intestinal cells through active or passive transport, depending on the amount of the vitamin ingested. Enterocytes are provided of specific enzymes, that can link a phosphate group to thiamine, forming TMP.

Then it is released into the blood vessels bound to serum proteins and it is transported to tissues, in particular to brain, heart, liver, skeletal muscles and kidneys. In tissues the vitamin is phosphorylated by specific enzymes, as thiamine pyrophosphatase and phosphatase. From this reaction is obtained thiamine pyrophosphate, the active form.

Vitamin B1 or thiamine benefits

Vitamin B1 or thiamine is very important for our body, in particular for nervous and cardiovascular systems. It is essential for many functions, for example:

  • Provides energy to the body, using carbohydrates, proteins and fats
  • Improves memory and concentration
  • Helps to relieve symptoms of multiple sclerosis and Bell's palsy
  • Strengthens eye lens, preventing cataracts
  • Reduces problems related to arrhythmias
  • Stimulates digestion
  • Counters free radicals effects, so it helps to prevent wrinkles

Vitamin B1 or thiamine and foods

Vitamin B1 or thiamine can be found in many vegetables in its pure form, but it is contained also in meat and fish, in particular its phosphate. Foods rich in thiamine are:

  • Asparagus [caption id="attachment_1389" align="alignright" width="168"]vitamin b1 thiamine or thiamin vitamin b1 thiamine or thiamin[/caption]
  • Spinaches
  • Tuna
  • Lentils
  • Pineapple
  • Carrots
  • Tomatoes
  • Oranges
  • Grapes
  • Lettuce
  • Cabbage
  • Garlic

Vitamin B1 or thiamine properties

Vitamin B1 is a water-soluble vitamin of the B complex. It is essential for many functions of our body, for example:

Energy production: thiamine is a coenzyme, so it is necessary to other enzyme's actions. In fact it stimulates metabolic reactions which lead to gain energy from carbohydrates. In particular it is a part of Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Complex, a group of enzymes that transforms pyruvate in acetyl-CoA, through decarboxylation. Acetyl-CoA then enters Krebs cycle, activating cellular respiration.

Nervous functions: vitamin B1 enhances the development of myelin coatings, essential for the transmission of impulses. Thiamine is also able to improve cerebral functions, in particular concentration and memory. Moreover it stimulates GABA and acetylcholine neurotransmitters synthesis

Cardiovascular functions: Vitamin B1 or thiamine is essential for the correct transmission of impulses through cardiac cells, so it helps to maintain a regular heartbeat

Digestive system: Vitamin B1 or thiamine enhances digestive acids production, so it promotes the digestion of foods

Antioxidant properties: vitamin B1 is also an antioxidant, so it is important to counter free radicals effects, from wrinkles to severe cellular damages.

Hemoglobin synthesis: thiamine has an important role in the production of hemoglobin, which is essential for the proper functioning of red blood cells

Eye health: vitamins are very helpful to maintain eye health. In particular it seems that thiamine is able to prevent cataracts

Lactic acid reduction into blood and tissues

Stimulates appetite

Vitamin B1 or thiamine side

Vitamin B1 or thiamine can be properly integrated into the body through specific food supplements. They usually are safe, but they can lead to different side effects. These can include in particular difficult breathing, swelling, rash or hives, but the most common effects are nausea, sweating, itching and restless feeling. When it is administered at elevated doses, especially intravenous, it can cause allergic reaction or even anaphylactic shock.


          Isomaltulose   

Isomaltulose is a sugar obtained through the enzymatic fermentation of sucrose, and it is largely used as ingredient for energy drinks or sports supplements. In fact it is particularly useful because it consent to obtain energy ready to use, but in a constant and prolonged way. It is used not only in the sports world, but also by food industries as an additive, because it consents to sweeten aliments and beverages, without any side effect.

What is Isomaltulose?

Isomaltulose is a carbohydrate, exactly a disaccharide, produced from sucrose through enzymatic processes , so it is naturally composed by glucose and fructose. It is naturally found in sugar cane and honey, but it can also be chemically obtained through bacterial fermentation. In particular, bacteria are added to common sucrose, especially Protaminobacter rubrum, so they start the enzymatic digestion of sugar, producing liquid isomaltulose, that is then crystallized.

Isomaltulose benefits

Isomaltulose is a carbohydrate with nearly the same characteristics of sucrose. They differ from one another for the fact that, even if they are completely digested and then absorbed by intestine, isomaltulose is released very slowly to the blood, so it can provide a constant amount of energy in time. In this way it is possible to make prolonged exercise, without encountering a rapid decrease of glucose curve, without spikes and lows. It is a natural sugar, present also in honey and sugar cane, so it doesn't leave the bad taste of artificial sweeteners used in many supplements and sports beverages. Another important benefit for athletes is that, because isomaltulose doesn't create a spike on glucose curve in the blood, lead the body to use deposits of fats to obtain energy. This aspect is particularly important because it permits to lose weight, decreasing fats storages.

Isomaltulose offers also benefits for the general health of the body. In fact it can be used by diabetic people, for his very low glycemic and insulinic index, and it is considered as a non-cariogenic sugar, so it can be consumed without common sugar's problems.

Energy is not important only during exercise, but also for mental activities. In fact brain can use only sugar as font of energy, so isomaltulose can be useful even for students. Moreover it delays the feeling of hunger, so it can be also used during a diet.

Sports supplements whit isomaltulose

[caption id="attachment_1369" align="aligncenter" width="450"]isomalutlose - sports supplements whit isomalutlose isomalutlose - sports supplements whit isomalutlose[/caption]

Isomaltulose and foods

Isomaltulose is naturally present in honey and sugar cane. It is used by food and supplements industries to realize energy drinks and artificial sweeteners. It can be also found in:

  • Powder milk
  • Energy drinks
  • Food supplements
  • Sports supplements
  • Candies
  • Chocolate
  • Chewing gums
  • Juices

Isomaltulose properties

Isomaltulose is a white substance, with a crystalline aspect, water-soluble. It is particularly useful because it is considered as a non-cariogenic sugar. Moreover it has a very low glycemic index, around 32, in comparison to glucose index of 100 or starch index of 70, so it is ideal to be consumed also by diabetics. This characteristic is due to the fact that it is easily and completely digested, but it is absorbed by the small intestine very slowly, so it doesn't create spikes of glucose into the blood and it provides energy in a constant and prolonged way. This is due to the presence of an alpha-1,6-glycosidic bond into the molecule, which is more slowly decomposed by hydrolytic enzymes into our digestive system. For this aspect, isomaltulose prevent its accumulation in the body as fats, on the contrary it stimulates the utilization of fats during exercise to obtain energy. This kind of energy is longer than that provided by sugars, so it is particularly suitable during intense and prolonged exercise.

Isomaltulose provides the same calories of sucrose, about four kcal per gram, and has the half of the sweetening power of sucrose.

Isomaltulose side

Isomaltulose is a natural disaccharide, present in sugar cane (vegan) and aldo in honey, and it is completely digested and absorbed by digestive system. For this reason it is considered safe, so it may not be cause for gastrointestinal problems, as diarrhea or nausea. This situation may occur if the subject suffers from an enzymatic deficiencies, or if he is fructose intolerant. Moreover, even if it's produced using bacterial fermentation, it doesn't contain bacterial substances that can cause health problems.


          Dextrose   

Dextrose is another name of glucose. It is normally present in nature in many forms, pure or in foods. It is very important for every kind of cell and tissue, especially for brain, so it must be introduced by diet in adequate amounts. In commerce there are also dextrose supplements, which can be used by athletes during and after the exercise.

doping free doping tested food supplements

What is dextrose

Dextrose is an isomer of glucose, exactly his right-handed form, also called D-glucose, which stands for dextrorotatory glucose. It is a simple monosaccharide, the most common in nature with fructose and galactose, from which it differs for many features. In fact dextrose and fructose have the same molecular formula, but the atoms arrangement is different; they both have six atoms of carbon and oxygen, and twelve hydrogen atoms, so they are considered as hexose sugars, but while dextrose or glucose are aldohexose, fructose is ketohexose.

It means that dextrose has a CHO-group on one of the first carbons, so the group is considered to be an aldehyde, fructose has a ketonic or carbonyl group on the second carbon. Dextrose differs also from galactose because this is an epimer of glucose; it means that they have a different configuration around the fourth carbon.

Dextrose is a very common sugar, and it can be found in plants, as fruits or sugar canes, and in honey in a free form, but it can be also linked to other monosaccharides, to form other types of sugar. From the union of dextrose with fructose or galactose, can derive lactose, maltose, sucrose. It can be also bounded to form polysaccharides, particular polymers of glucose, as starch, cellulose and glycogen.

Dextrose benefits

Dextrose is the most important font of energy for cells and tissues of our body. In fact it is used especially by brain and red cells, but it is essential for the metabolism of all the cells in the body. It is used for aerobic or anaerobic cellular respiration, for fermentation and for many other reactions.

It is used by many athletes to obtain energy ready to use during intense exercise, or after the training to restore the deposits of glycogen.

Dextrose and foods

dextrose food supplements

Dextrose is simply another name of glucose, and this is naturally found in many foods. In fact it is the most present sugar in nature. It can be found in free form, as powder supplements or in tablets, or it can be used as an ingredient for many recipes. Foods naturally rich of dextrose are:

  • Honey
  • Fruits
  • Grains
  • Potatoes
  • Corn syrup
  • Beans

On the other hand, foods which include dextrose are in particular candies, some baking foods and desserts.

Post-workout drinks are becoming more and more popularDextrose in sports supplements

Post-workout drinks are becoming more and more popular, and for good reason: your body is primed and ready to take the nutrients you ingest and use them to begin repairing your "starving" muscles. What many don't know, however, is that taking dextrose post-workout can maximize your gains and help you get the most out of this all-important post-workout window. A good post workout is a sport supplement in  with essential amino acids, L-glutamine, ornithine AKG, alkaline mineral salts, B-vitamins, C-vitamin, alpha-lipoic acid, dextrose and carbohydrates gradually released.

Dextrose properties

Dextrose or glucose is the essential font of energy for our body. It can be used by all the cells, but also for bacteria to obtain fuel for many reactions. In fact it is necessary for cellular respiration or glycolysis, which consists in the oxidation of glucose, forming at the end ATP, the most common form of energy for cells. This process is very important, because it can supply energy, but it is also essential for utilization of other monosaccharides, as fructose or galactose. It can be made also in conditions of absence of oxygen, for example in tissue as skeletal muscles during intense exercise, producing lactic acid, which it then processed during Krebs cycle. It can provide almost four kcal per gram, if it is burn immediately, but it can also be stored in the liver in form of fats or glycogen.

Dextrose has one of the most higher glycemic index, compared to the other sugars, with a value of 100, different from matlodextrin and isomaltulose that are lower glicemic index carbhoidrates. It can be found in different forms, for example in solid form or powder, used by food industries or as sports supplement, or in liquid form, used for phlebotherapy.

Dextrose sides

Dextrose in normally present in many foods, so if used in small quantities, it doesn't cause any problem. Physiologically our body regulate by itself the amount of glucose in the blood, but if we introduce a larger quantity of this monosaccharide, can occur different side effects. In fact when glucose exceeds the normal amount in the blood, the body starts to store it in fats or glycogen. So can occur hyperglycemia, which can lead to diabetes, but also weight gain, obesity. There can be another aspect; in fact too much glucose can stimulate the entry of this sugar into cells and tissues, so the levels of glycemia can drop quickly, causing nausea, confusion and hunger.


          Essential amino acids   

Essential amino acids in human diet are: phenylalanine, methionine, lysine, threonine, valine, leucine, isoleucine, tryptophan. They differ from other classes these compounds for the fact that they must be necessarily introduced in the body through the diet. In addition to BCAAs, arginine and glutamine also have positive effects on the body engaged in sport activities.

Arginine is closely related to the secretion of growth hormone. Growth hormone is important both for muscle building and for muscle repairing. Replenishment of arginine is considered to promote the synthesis of myoproteins. Glutamine, an amino acid distributed abundantly in muscles, helps the synthesis of myoproteins and inhibits their breakdown, as is the case with leucine.

What are essential amino acids?

Essential amino acids are particular amino acids, organic molecules that form proteins. There are three major categories of these compounds:

Essential amino acids: they cannot be synthesized by the body, but they must be obtained through the diet. In adult they are phenylalanine, methionine, lysine, threonine, valine, leucine, isoleucine, tryptophan. During childhood this category includes also arginine, cysteine, histidine and tyrosine.

Non essential or semi-essential amino acids: they can be produced by the body, as alanine, asparagine, glutamic and aspartic acid.

Conditional amino acids: they might become essential in some pathological conditions. Belong to this category arginine, glycinine, tyrosine, serine, proline, glutamine and ornithine.

Essential amino acids - amino acids food supplementsEssential amino acids benefits

Every essential amino acid has specific benefits. In particular:

  • Phenylalanine: D-phenylalaline is used to treat chronic pain, to relieve symptoms related to Parkinson's disease. L-phenylalanine instead acts in case of vitiligo, but also depression
  • Methionine: it is used to treat chronic urinary infections and in case of kidney stones, because methionine is able to make urine more acid, so that bacteria are unable to survive. It is also used in case of liver diseases as cirrhosis, or heavy metal intoxication.
  • Lysine: supplements of lysine are used to treat herpes virus infections, osteoporosis and for the health of hair
  • Threonine: this amino acid is particularly known for its purifying properties for liver and kidneys, especially for hepatic steatosis. It can also boost tissue regeneration, stimulating synthesis of collagen and elastin. Other important aspects of threonine are the power on immune system and the prevention of trauma to tendons and muscles.
  • Valine: L-valine enhance athletic exercise, helps to treat liver diseases and dyskinesia.
  • Leucine: supplements of leucine are used in rare cases, for example by endurance athletes and in bodybuilders, to reduce recovery time and to increase muscles volume.
  • Isoleucine: this amino acid is present in many supplements for athletes, because it reduces recovery time in case of intense exercise.
  • Tryptophan: supplements of tryptophan are used for insomnia but also in some cases of depression or Obsessive Compulsive Disorders.

Essential amino acids and foods

Foods rich in proteins, and then in amino acids, are especially meat, fish, cheese, milk and some vegetarian foods as soybeans, nuts and seeds. Methionine is found in particular in eggs, milk, nuts, cereal grains, soy proteins and fish. Foods rich in lysine instead are pork, cheese, dairy products, wheat germ, brewer's yeast. Threonine is found in a great part of legumes and in all types of meat. Valine is present mostly in rye, but also in nuts, milk, chicken, salmon, rice and peas. Leucine is found in particular in nuts, legumes, corn, peanuts, meat and fish. Foods rich of isoleucine are lamb, pork, chicken, cheese, eggs, tuna, nuts, beans. Tryptophan is present in legumes, chocolate, peanuts, diary products, yogurt, seeds and spirulina.

Essential amino acids property

Essential amino acids properties are specific for each kind of amino acid:

  • Phenylalanine: it is used by the body to synthesize tyrosine, a conditional amino acid from which are obtained L-dopa, adrenaline, noradrenaline and thyroid hormones.
  • Methionine: it is involved in the synthesis of other amino acids, as cysteine, carnitine, taurine and lecithin. Methionine can remove heavy metals from the organs and it's important for the health of skin, nails and hair.
  • Lysine: is a component of collagen, but it is also the precursor of carnitine and niacin. It is able to enhance immune system through antibodies production, it stimulates hormones and enzymes synthesis.
  • Threonine: this amino acid is particularly important for nervous and immune functions, and for liver health.
  • Valine: it is essential to product many proteins, but also to obtain energy
  • Leucine: it is important for the construction of skeletal muscles and for the protein synthesis
  • Isoleucine: this amino acid is particularly important for the body because it is involved in the synthesis of hemoglobin and proteins.
  • Tryptophan: it is very important for the body because it is the precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin, melatonin and niacin.

Essential amino acids in sports

Essential amino acids have a variety of roles in sports nutrition. The major functions of essential amino acids include repairing muscle damage, promoting muscle glycogen resynthesis and preventing sports anemia by increasing the synthesis of oxidative enzymes and mitochondria during exercise. This is all completed by the ability of the amino acids to increase retention of nitrogen that increases muscle mass.

Essential amino acids side effects

Side effects of essential amino acids are not frequent, because they are physiologically present and product by the body. In some case can occur restlessness, anxiety and tachycardia. If they are assumed in excessive amounts, they can cause kidney problems, related to the accumulation on proteins.

 
          Athletes with coeliac disease   

The list of professional athletes who are reaping the benefits of going gluten-free, after experiencing health issues is getting bigger.

James Starks is one of many pro athletes who have recently gone gluten-free (gluten free diet). Others include: Kyle Korver of the Chicago Bulls, who credits a gluten-free diet for an improved post-game recovery; US swimmer Dana Vollmer, who went gluten-free before winning her first gold medal at the 2011 World Swimming Championships, and after years of battling severe stomach aches and fatigue; and UFC fighter Dennis Hallman, who celiac disease, who has openly discussed his condition and following adjustments to his training regimen.

Like everyone who has made the switch away from gluten, Starks has had to make his own personal sacrifices however, those sacrifices are paying off with a renewed energy and vitality leaving Starks hungry for another Superbowl run.

Coeliac disease symptoms

Depending on the degree of malabsorption, the signs and symptoms of coeliac disease vary among individuals, ranging from no symptoms, few or mild signs and symptoms, to many or severe signs and symptoms. There are two categories of signs and symptoms: signs and symptoms due to malabsorption, and signs and symptoms due to malnutrition including vitamin and mineral deficiencies.

Coeliac disease malabsorption

The three major categories of dietary nutrients are carbohydrates, proteins and fat. Absorption of all of these nutrients can be reduced in coeliac disease; however, fat is the most commonly and severely affected nutrient. Most of the gastrointestinal symptoms and signs of coeliac disease are due to the inadequate absorption of fat (fat malabsorption). Gastrointestinal symptoms of fat malabsorption include diarrhoea, malodorous flatulence (foul-smelling wind), abdominal bloating and increased amounts of fat in the stool (steatorrhea). The unabsorbed fat is broken down by intestinal bacteria into fatty acids, and these fatty acids promote secretion of water into the intestine, resulting in diarrhoea. Fatty stools typically are large in volume, malodorous (foul smelling), greasy, light tan or light grey in colour, and tend to float in the toilet bowl. Oil droplets (undigested fat) also may be seen floating on top of the water.

Coeliac disease, gluten sensitivity and..

Loss of intestinal villi also causes malabsorption of carbohydrates, particularly the sugar lactose. Lactose is the primary sugar in milk. Lactose is made up of two smaller sugars, glucose and galactose. In order for lactose to be absorbed from the intestine and into the body, it must first be split into glucose and galactose. The glucose and galactose then can be absorbed by the cells lining the small intestine. The enzyme that splits lactose into glucose and galactose is called lactase, and it is located on the surface of the small intestinal villi. In coeliac disease the intestinal villi along with the lactase enzymes on their surface are destroyed, leading to malabsorption of lactose. Also for this reason sport supplements @gjav are made without lactose and are lactose-free certified and also vegan and dairy free.


          Freeze-dried placenta pills likely caused this newborn’s dangerous bacterial infection   
baby

Photo by Flickr user Katrina Cole

In a certain corner of the alternative health movement, fueled by celebrity buzz, it’s become en vogue for new mothers to consume their placentas after giving birth. Companies have sprouted up offering to turn placentas into smoothies, truffles, and freeze-dried pills, claiming that placental eating — practiced by many mammal species — can give recovering moms a boost of vitamins and nutrients, and help prevent postpartum depression.

Evidence, however, is lacking that it has any health benefit for human moms or babies. And a new case report reveals that it can be incredibly dangerous.

The case report describes an infant born in Oregon in fall 2016 who was soon after diagnosed with a strep infection that was causing breathing difficulties. After a course of antibiotics, the baby was immediately hospitalized again and tested positive for strep a second time. Doctors, searching for the source of the infection, eventually realized that the mother was taking daily dried placenta capsules. Testing of the capsules confirmed that they were strep positive.

The report, published in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, states that the pills likely increased the strep bacteria in the mom’s intestines and skin, from which the baby picked up the bacteria.

READ NEXT: Studies shine light on mysterious placenta, how it goes awry

And a similar risk may exist for other bacteria, the scientists point out. Placental tissue, consumed raw, may contain various kinds of bacteria. But even prepared placenta — whether by cooking, drying, or preservation — can transmit infection. The report states that the unnamed company that made the placenta pills dehydrated the tissue at 115 degrees F-160 degrees F, while a temperature of at least 130 for 121 minutes is needed to kill off salmonella bacteria. (The report doesn’t list the temperature needed to kill strep bacteria.)

Celeb health hazards

A number of companies, including Puget Sound Placenta, Northern Virginia Placenta Specialist Collective, and Austin Womb Service, offer placental encapsulation like that described in the report, selling everything from basic capsules to chocolate placenta truffles to placenta smoothies. January Jones, Alicia Silverstone, and Kim Kardashian are just of a few of the celebrities who consumed pills made of their own dried placenta after giving birth, claiming the practice provides a myriad of health benefits.

According to Timothy Caulfield, author of the book “Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?” and a health law professor at the University of Alberta, placental consumption is one of many health phenomena lacking scientific evidence that has been popularized by celebrities.

“I really think that, but for people like Kim Kardashian and other celebrities, people wouldn’t be doing this, they wouldn’t be considering it, it wouldn’t be so popular,” he said. “The power of celebrity culture is profound, and I really think this is an example of it.”

For example, in her 2014 book “The Kind Mama,” Alicia Silverstone wrote about eating placenta pills: “I got to the point that my husband said, ‘Did you have your happy pills today?’ And I was really sad when they were gone. It really helped me.”

And, Caulfield points out, social media allows celebrities to channel health advice to their fans in a way that feels more conversational and tangible. Kim Kardashian, for example, has posted repeatedly about placenta pills on Twitter and Instagram, including a photo of a glass canning jar full of pills labeled “Kim, Your Amazing Placenta.”

When it comes to health, Caulfield recommends mostly ignoring celebrities and pop culture.

“What you really want to wait for is a body of evidence,” he said. “Look for trusted sources of information that aggregate the science. That’s what you want. You don’t want sources that hype a single study, you don’t want to take advice from a celebrity, you don’t want to use anecdotes and narratives as evidence.”

          Nieuwsbrief-artikelen - Neo versus neo   
Neo-Darwinisten en Neo-Lamarckianen vechten een robbertje in de arena van de epigenetica.
 
Op 1 augustus 1744 werd Jean-Baptiste Pierre Antoine de Monet, Chevalier de Lamarck geboren. Deze Franse natuuronderzoeker was de eerste die de term biologie gebruikte en die veel verstand had van ongewervelde dieren. Hij werd beroemd en berucht omdat hij van mening was dat als een organisme tijdens het leven verandert om zich aan de omgeving aan te passen, deze wijzigingen worden overgedragen op het nageslacht. De giraffe heeft een lange nek omdat hij die generatie na generatie moet rekken en strekken om frisse groene blaadjes uit hoge bomen te kunnen verorberen. In 1809 publiceerde hij zijn evolutietheorie in Philosofie Zoologique waarin hij stelde dat de evolutie rechtlijnig, doelgericht en opklimmend is. Het organisme heeft volgens Lamarck een eigen plan, is creatief en inventief. Deze theorie heet het Lamarckisme, de overerfelijkheid van verkregen eigenschappen.
 
Over zijn theorie ontstond al snel een hoop discussie. Ook Charles Darwin moest er niets van weten. In zijn geheime aantekeningen die hij vanaf 1837 maakte, serveerde Darwin Lamarcks hypothese af. Darwin vond een evolutie van soorten die zich als een boom vertakt, logischer dan Lamarcks idee van lineaire evolutie. In zo'n boom is niet langer sprake van "hogere" en "lagere" levensvormen, zoals bij Lamarcks lineaire evolutie het geval is. Toen Darwin in 1859 (eindelijk) zijn On the Origin of Species publiceerde over de evolutie op basis van natuurlijke selectie, was het snel gedaan met het Lamarckisme. Of toch niet helemaal?
 
In een van mijn eerdere columns  schreef ik al over de epigenetica, de relatief jonge tak van wetenschap die bestudeert hoe gen-regulerende informatie die niet in DNA-sequenties wordt uitgedrukt, toch van de ene generatie cellen of organismen op de andere wordt overgedragen. Het wordt steeds duidelijker dat interactie tussen DNA-ketens, waaronder ook de zogenaamde junk DNA, en de omgeving namelijk de cel, het organisme en de buitenwereld, grote invloed hebben hoe de DNA-informatie wordt vertaald in vaardigheden en gedrag. Het evolutionaire belang van de mechanismen die het gen tot expressie brengen zou wel eens groter kunnen zijn dan eerder werd aangenomen. Het wetenschappelijke terrein van de epigenetica is spannend, behoorlijk onontgonnen en vormt derhalve een uitermate geschikte arena om oude vetes af te stoffen. Want er zijn neo-Lamarckianen. Aan het einde van de negentiende eeuw ontstond er in Frankrijk en de Verenigde Staten een neo-Lamarckistische school en nog steeds zijn er aanhangers, zoals Edward Steele die in 1998 in zijn boek Lamarck’s Signature een neo-Lamarckistisch standpunt inneemt.
 
Deze neo-Lamarckianen nemen het vooral op tegen de neo-Darwinisten die aanhangers zijn van de ideeën die in 1976 tot volle bloei zijn gebracht in het schitterende boek The Selfish Gene van Engelse evolutiebioloog en publicist Richard Dawkins. Neo-Darwinisten zijn van mening dat alles in het leven draait om het voortleven van het gen. Wij dieren zijn er uitsluitend voor om onze genen voort te laten bestaan en wij zijn dan ook niets meer dan een overlevingsmachine die na bewezen diensten wordt afgedankt. In Dawkins eigen woorden: “We are robot vehicles blindly programmed to preserve the selfish molecules known as genes”. Na dit boek heeft Dawkins nog veel andere boeiende boeken geschreven zoals The Blind Watchmaker (1987) en The God Delusion (2006). Vooral met dat laatste boek heeft Dawkins zich geprofileerd als erkend atheïst en bestrijder van religie als het grote kwaad omdat godsdiensten vaak de werkelijkheid en de waarheid misvormen of ontkennen en mensen ertoe aanzetten medemensen verschrikkelijke dingen aan te doen in naam van hun feilloze god. Deze ‘kruistocht’ tegen religie wordt Dawkins in religieuze kringen niet in dank afgenomen. Het afgelopen decennium treedt hij regelmatig publiekelijk in het strijdperk met gelovigen, maar ook pseudowetenschappers als Deepak Chopra, auteur van veel boeken waaronder het in 2015 verschenen Super Genes: Unlock the Astonishing Power of Your DNA for Optimum Health and Well-Being. Geen wonder dat Dawkins niets moet weten van mensen die de ontwikkelingen van epigenetica aangrijpen om aan de fundamenten van de evolutietheorie te morrelen en die suggereren dat de epigenetica overtuigende argumenten aanvoert voor de Lamarckiaanse hypothese of, misschien nog ‘erger’, het gedachtegoed van intelligent ontwerp of zelfs creationisme.
 
Al degenen die maar niet aan het idee kunnen wennen dat de evolutie puur is gebaseerd op random mutaties en aanpassing aan de omgeving en dat er dus geen vooropgezet plan of een schepping van god is, hopen dat epigenetica hun gelijk zal bewijzen. Onder hen is de Israëlische genetica en filosofe Eva Jablonka. Samen met Marion Lamb schreef zij in 2008 het artikel Soft inheritance: Challenging the Modern Synthesis dat gaat over een Lamarckiaans epigenetisch controlesysteem. De Duitse neurobioloog en vooral wetenschapsjournalist Peter Spork schrijft in zijn boek ‘De Verborgen Code: Hoe wij ons DNA sturen’ dat over de ontwikkelingen rond epigenetica gaat, dat Jablonka de stelling verdedigt dat de verborgen code (het epigenoom) rechtstreeks de evolutie beïnvloedt.
Mensen als Dawkins rillen van dit soort stellingen. De discussies over zulke kwesties op bijvoorbeeld twitter zijn blaartrekkend. De beruchte anonieme internetbagger druipt van het scherm. De rauwe emoties lopen hoog op. Een voorbeeld.
 
Op 2 mei jl. schreef de bekende en gewaardeerde wetenschapsjournalist Siddhartha Mukherjee in The New Yorker het artikel Same but different dat de ondertitel heeft How epigenetics can blur the line between nature and nurture. Vanuit de wetenschappelijke wereld wordt dat artikel enorm bekritiseerd. Zo reageert Richard Mann, hoogleraar in de biochemie en moleculaire biofysica, dat het echt verdrietig en beschamend is dat zoiets afschuwelijks in een gerespecteerd tijdschrift verschijnt en nog wel door een gerespecteerd schrijver. De kritiek op het artikel van Mukherjee wordt samengevat door Jerry Coyne op zijn website Why evolution is true met zijn bijdrage The New Yorker screws up big time with science: researchers criticize the Mukherjee piece on epigenetics. Voor Dawkins is deze bijdrage van Coyne een goede reden om op 5 mei een tweet te versturen waarin hij stelt dat het de hoogste tijd is dat the 15 minutes of undeserved fame for “epigenetics” aan een verlaat einde komt. En dan is de boot aan. Twitteraars verwijten Dawkins op niet mis te verstane wijze zich onwetenschappelijk te verzetten tegen de aanspraken die enkele onderzoekers op basis van epigenetica maken. Dawkins zou zich stijfkoppig verweren tegen de aanvallen op ‘zijn’ gen-centrische paradigma van het zelfzuchtige gen.
 
In het Aeon Magazine van december 2013 staat het essay Die, selfish gene, die van David Dobbs. Daarin vraagt hij zich af of wij nu niet worden verblind door het feit dat wij dankzij de bestaande metafoor van het egoïstische gen al tientallen jaren met nieuwe helderheid naar de evolutie kijken. Ik vind Dobbs’ essay verhelderend omdat het alles netjes op een rijtje zet, zonder dat het tot een keiharde conclusie komt. Ook het vervolgessay Dead or Alive? waarin vier experts hun licht laten schijnen op de vraag Is it time to kill the idea of the ‘Selfish Gene’? levert boeiende bijdragen aan de discussie. De toenemende wetenschappelijke kennis over de complexe manier waarop het gen tot expressie komt, is voor enkele onderzoekers zoals Mary Jane West-Eberhard van het Smithsonian Tropical Research Intitute in Panama, aanleiding  te veronderstellen dat het gen wel eens geen leidende rol, maar een  volgende rol in de evolutie zou kunnen spelen. Dawkins is het daar niet mee eens. Hij zegt in het essay van Dobbs dat het bij het gen-centrisch model allemaal draait om het gen als de eenheid in de hiërarchie van het leven dat gekozen is. Alles draait om het gen.
 
Als geïnteresseerde leek die gewoon een leuke column over de discussie rond epigenetica wil schrijven, wordt het mij niet makkelijk gemaakt. De heren en dames genetici slaan elkaar flink om de oren en ik word geacht daarvan een beetje chocola te maken. Het is daarom goed te beseffen dat de epigenetica nog in de kinderschoenen staat en dat het nog veel te vroeg is om nu al vergaande uitspraken te doen over de al dan niet leidende rol in de evolutie van het genoom of het epigenoom. Mijn, in dit geval wel zeer bescheiden, voorlopige conclusie is dat de epigenetica tot op heden heeft laten zien dat de manier waarop informatie over eigenschappen wordt overgedragen aanzienlijk ingewikkelder is dan tot nu werd gedacht, maar dat het gen nog steeds aan het stuur zit. Het is volgens mij op dit moment onmogelijk de neo-Lamarckianen als winnaar aan te wijzen in hun strijd tegen de neo-Darwinisten.

7 Superfood Lattes That Will Make You Quit Coffee

Trouble waking up? Your latte might not be weird enough. Enter: superfood lattes made from algae, medicinal mushrooms and collagen — each promising a nontraditional boost of, well, whatever you want.

Don't get us wrong, we love coffee as much as the next person (it’s a superfood in its own right, after all!). But sometimes caffeine isn’t all that you need. Maybe it’s a hot cup of antioxidant-rich goji berry cocoa, or a tummy-taming turmeric brew. Here, we rounded up seven super-powered latte recipes from some of our favorite bloggers (including five vegan lattes!).

One word of caution: Many of these drinks get their froth from whipping together in a blender. Be sure to only use a blender with an open top (unlike a Nutribullet or Magic Bullet) so that heat can escape and your blender doesn't crack from the high temperature.

1. Raw Cacao and Goji Berry Superfood Latte

The plain ol' cup of hot cocoa gets a serious nutrition upgrade with this recipe from The First Mess. For one, it's sweetened with a date opposed to processed sugar. It is also made with cacao, which is made from raw pressed beans (cocoa powder is roasted). Similar compounds tested by researchers have been shown to potentially reduce the risk of chronic diseases, like heart disease and stroke, and may prove to be a good energy source for pregnant women, who need to watch their caffeine intake. Using almond or coconut milk in this recipe also makes it vegan-friendly. Photo and recipe: Laura Wright / The First Mess

5. Vanilla Coconut Matcha Tea Latte

Green tea lattes are no newbie to coffee shop menus, but this vegan alternative from Peaceful Dumpling features unsweetened coconut and soy milk. Matcha is much more potent than green tea because the entire leaf is consumed in powder form instead of steeped and removed before consuming, like the traditional tea. The upside: a whole lot of antioxidants. Matcha is an excellent source of catechins, particularly EGCg, which provides cancer-fighting properties. Catechins are also shown to help fight free radicals from pollution, UV rays and chemicals. Photo and recipe: Mary Hood Luttrell / Peaceful Dumpling

          Peneliti ungkap kekuatan pencernaan burung pemakan bangkai   
Washington (ANTARA News) - Burung-burung nasar memakan kematian, mengunyah daging busuk yang bisa membuat sakit atau membunuh orang atau binatang lainnya.

Menurut para peneliti, pemulung berbulu ini punya usus paling kuat di planet ini.

Para ilmuwan menyatakan hasil analisis pada dua spesies burung nasar Amerika Utara menunjukkan bahwa burung itu memiliki sistem pencernaan asam yang sangat kuat dan ususnya penuh dengan dua jenis bakteri jahat.

Pada nasar hitam dan nasar kalkun, satu-dua pukulan gastrointestinal ini efektif melumpuhkan banyak potensi penyakit yang disebabkan oleh populasi mikroba pada bangkai yang mereka makan.

"Saluran gastrointestinal nasar adalah lingkungan yang berbahaya," kata ahli mikrobiologi Lars Hestbjerg Hansen dari Aarhus University di Denmark, salah satu peneliti yang hasil studinya dipublikasikan dalam jurnal Nature Communications.

"Nasar-nasar ini akan mengonsumsi vertebrata mati apapun - mamalia, burung, ular, ikan. Mereka lebih suka organisme yang belum lama mati dibandingkan dengan karkas yang sudah sangat busuk," kata ahli ornitologi Gary Graves dari Smithsonian Institution di National Museum of Natural History di Washington, peneliti yang lain.

"Sebagai contoh, rusa yang sehari mati di jalan itu sempurna," katanya seperti dilansir kantor berita Reuters.

Para peneliti memeriksa komunitas mikroba, atau mikrobioma, yang hidup dalam saluran pencernaan 50 burung nasar yang meliputi dua spesies yakni nasar hitam dan nasar kalkun.

Nasar kalkun tubuhnya tertutup bulu hitam dengan kepala gundul berkulit
merah dan rentang sayap hampir 1,75 meter. Jenis
ini umum ditemui di Amerika Utara.

Sementara nasar hitam lebih kecil,
dengan rentang sayap sekitar 1,45 meter, bulu hitam, dan kepala gundul
berkerut dengan kulit berwarna abu-abu gelap. Burung jenis ini ditemukan
di seluruh bagian tenggara Amerika Serikat.

Bakteri pencernaan paling umum pada nasar - Clostridia dan Fusobacteria - ternyata sangat patogenik pada binatang lain. Clostridia misalnya, bisa menyebabkan penyakit-penyakit yang menjadi musuh dunia seperti botulism, kelemayuh (gangren) dan tetanus pada manusia.

Para peneliti juga menemukan bahwa asam perut burung nazar sangat kuat dan membunuh banyak bakteri yang masuk ke dalam tubuh mereka bersama daging busuk.

"Kebanyakan mikroba yang masuk bersama makanan tidak akan bertahan dalam kondisi keras ini," kata peneliti yang lain, ahli mikrobiologi dari University of Copenhagen, Michael Roggenbuck.

          Ada 80 juta bakteri dalam 10 detik berciuman   
Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Sebanyak 80 juta bakteri pindah tempat selama sepuluh detik Anda mencium pasangan Anda, simpul para peneliti dalam  jurnal Microbiome seperti dikutip Science Daily.

Peneliti juga menyimpulkan, pasangan yang lagi berbalas ciuman paling sedikit sembilan kali sehari, akan saling berbagi komunitas bakteri mulut yang sama.

Ekosistem lebih dari 100 triliun mikroorganisme dalam tubuh kita -mikrobiome-- berperan penting dalam mencerna makanan, mensintesa nutrien, dan mencegah penyakit.

Mikroorganisme ini dibentuk oleh genetika, pola makan dan umur, tetapi juga oleh dengan siapa manusia berinteraksi (berciuman).

Mengingat mulut menjadi pintu masuk bagi lebih dari 700 varietas bakteri, maka mikrobiota mulut menjadi dipengaruhi oleh orang terdekat kita.

Para peneliti dari Micropia dan TNO di Belanda meneliti 21 pasangan dengan meminta mereka mengisi kuisoner mengenai prilaku cium mereka termasuk frekuensi ciuman intim masing-masing.

Para peneliti kemudian menyeka sampel-sampel untuk meneliti komposisi mikrobiota mulut para pasangan tersebut di lidah dan liur mereka.

Hasilnya menunjukkan, manakala para pasangan itu mencium dengan intim dalam frekuensi relatif tinggi, maka mikrobiota liur mereka menjadi serupa.

Rata-rata ditemukan paling tidak sembilan ciuman intim per hari yang membuat para pasangan berbagi secara signifikan mikrobiota liur yang serupa satu sama lain.

"Ciuman intim melibatkan kontak lidah secara penuh dan pertukaran liur menjadi prilaku unik manusia dan ini umum dilakukan oleh 90 persen kebudayaan yang ada," kata kepala penelitian ini, Remco Kort dari jurusan Mikrobiologi dan Biologi Sistem di TNO, Belanda, yang juga penasehat pada museum mikroba Micropia.

"Yang menarik, penjelasan yang saat ini ada mengenai fungsi ciuman intim pada manusia berperan penting bagi mikrobiota yang ada di rongga mulut, kendati menurut pengetahuan kita, pengaruh pasti ciuman intim terhadap mikrobiota mulut tak pernah diteliti."

"Kami ingin menemukan batas di mana para pasangan berbagi mikrobiota mulut mereka, dan ternyata, semakin sering pasangan berciuman, maka semakin serupa mikrobiota mulut mereka," kata Kort.

Pada eksperimen ciuman terkendali untuk mengkuantifikasi perpindahan bakteri, anggota setiap pasangan diberi minuman probiotik yang mengandung varitas-varitas khusus bakteri termasuk Lactobasilus dan Bifidobacteria.

Setelah ciuman intim, para peneliti mendapati fakta bahwa kuantitas bakteri probiotik pada liur penerima meningkat tiga kali lipa atau total 80 juta bakteri berpindah selama 10 detik ciuman.

Penelitian ini juga menggarisbawahi  peran penting mekanisme lain dalam menyaring mikrobiota mulut yang dihasilkan dari gaya hidup, pola makan dan cara merawat tubuh yang sama antar pasangan, dan ini khususnya terjadi pada mikrobiota di lidah.

Para peneliti menyimpulkan kalau mikrobiota lidah lebih mirip antar pasangan ketimbang individu yang tak berkaitan, maka kemiripan itu tak berubah oleh ciuman yang lebih sering. Ini bertolak belakang dengan yang terjadi pada mikrobiota liur.

Mengomentari hasil kuisoner ciuman, para peneliti menunjuk penemuan terpisah namun menarik  bahwa 74 persen pria melakukan ciuman intim dengan frekuensi lebih tinggi dibandingkan dengan wanita pada pasangan yang sama.  Ini kira-kira sepuluh kali ciuman per hari pada pria, atau  dua kali lipat ciuman intim wanita per hari yang hanya lima kali per hari.

Untuk menghitung jumlah bakteri yang berpindah lewat sebuah ciuman, para peneliti mengandalkan nilai perpindahan rata-rata dan sejumlah asumsi yang berkaitan dengan perpindahan bakteri, permukaan kontak ciuman dan nilai  rata-rata volume air liur, demikian Science Daily.

          EXAMEN DE ABDOMEN   


La técnica del examen abdominal varía según las molestias que sufre el paciente y el proceso patológico que se investiga. Diversas maniobras de gran importancia al valorar un abdomen agudo o una lesión demostrable o sospechada se omiten en la exploración corriente. En consecuencia, vamos a estudiar separadamente el examen de elección, la valoración de los datos patológicos, e examen de vientre agudo el examen de abdomen operado.


EXAMEN DE ELECCION


El objetivo principal de este examen es comprobar que no hay u tumor abdominal y que las vísceras no están aumentadas de volumen o en posición anormal.
Lo fundamental para el examen es lograr que el paciente este relajado y sin molestias. Cabeza y rodillas deben estar apoyadas en ligera flexión; las manos deben hallarse a los lados. Para lograr una perfecta relajación tiene importancia proteger adecuadamente las partes desnudas, especialmente en la mujer.


Hígado
De ordinario el hígado no puede palparse, pero en personas delgadas puede percibirse a nivel del borde costal. La palpación se efectúa como sigue: los dos dedos del examinador se colocan planos sobre la pared abdominal inmediatamente por debajo del reborde costal y se deprime con los dedos de la otra mano. Se indica al paciente que respire profundo y los dedos que palpan se comprimen con cuidado hacia adentro y arriba para que palpen el hígado cuando descienden por la respiración. La maniobra se repite varias veces; si no se percibe el borde, el hígado probablemente no este aumentado de volumen. La palpación por fuera del músculo recto permitirá identificar un borde de hígado que de otra manera quedaría enmascarado por el espasmo voluntario de dicho músculo.
La percusión debe iniciarse en la línea axilar anterior a nivel aproximadamente del cuarto espacio intercostal siguiéndola hacia abajo hasta que las otras resonante del pulmón quede sustituida por la macidez hepática. Luego se sigue dicha macidez hasta que quede sustituida por el timpanismo de los gases intestinales. De ordinario la zona de macidez hepática se extiende desde el quinto espacio intercostal hasta el borde costal. La percusión del borde inferior del hígado no merece confianza cuando hay distensión abdominal. En ocasiones la percusión demuestra aumento neto del volumen del hígado, aunque su borde no pueda identificarse en la palpación.







Vesícula biliar
La vesícula biliar normal no puede palparse. Una vesícula biliar distendida puede percibirse inmediatamente a nivel del borde externo del músculo recto del abdomen.





Bazo
Normalmente el bazo no es palpable. Se busca colocando la mano izquierda n por detrás en el flanco, debajo del borde costal en la línea axilar media. Se indica al paciente que respire profundo y se insinúan con cuidado los dedos en el cuadrante superior izquierdo del abdomen. Esta maniobra debe repetirse dos o tres veces. Si no hay percepción, el bazo probablemente no esta muy aumentado de volumen. Si hay razones para sospechar una ligera hipertrofia esplénica, hay que repetir la palpación con el paciente vuelto sobre el lado derecho. Estando el paciente acostado se pone el brazo y puño izquierdo debajo de el; entonces gira hacia delante y extiende el raquis facilitando la palpación del bazo.
La percusión puede ser útil. Normalmente la macidez esplénica se extiende en la línea axilar media desde la novena a la undécima costillas; esta zona muchas veces esta enmascarada por el gas contenido en el estomago o intestino, de manera que la percusión no suele merecer confianza a menos que el bazo este netamente hipertrofiado. Una zona de macidez que se extiende por encima de la novena costilla por debajo de la undécima costilla y en la línea axilar media izquierda es signo de hipertrofia esplénica.







Valoración de una masa abdominal


El examinador ha de tener la seguridad de que lo que parece una masa abdominal no es una estructura normal. En este punto caben muchos errores. La vejiga distendida, el útero grávido, el borde resistente del músculo recto del abdomen, el promontorio del sacro y la aorta tortuosa y dilatada de una hipertenso, todas estas estructuras han sido consideradas erróneamente como tumores abdominales de etiología diversa. Quizá sea necesario el sondeo para excluir una vejiga distendida. Hay que pensar en el embarazo siempre que haya un tumor en la parte media del abdomen femenino, aunque los síntomas puedan ser extraordinariamente vagos. En pacientes delgados puede palparse el promontorio del sacro y considerarse erróneamente un tumor de la línea abdominal media, sobre todo por cuanto es sensible a la palpación. Una masa de localización imprecisa carece de significado a menos que haya motivos para sospechar lesión noeplásica de los ganglios aórticos.


La contracción voluntaria del músculo recto, sobre todo en pacientes obesos, suele producir un tumor epigástrico manifiesto.


Hígado aumentado de volumen


La inspección puede revelar el contorno de un hígado hipertrofiado que se extiende por abdomen superior derecho y epigastrio. Un hígado hipertrofiado es fácil de descubrir por palpación cuando el paciente está bien relajado y no hay distensión abdominal. El dato diagnóstico característico es el borde netamente palpable. Puede ser romo en caso de cirrosis, o irregular y nodular si la hipertrofia depende de carcinoma. En personas delgadas a veces el borde nodular de dureza pétrea de un cáncer metastático se puede delinear con tanta precisión que no queda duda alguna acerca del diagnóstico. El aumento de volumen del hígado por debajo del reborde costal puede confirmarse por percusión y dibujándolo con lápiz dermográfico. Es costumbre estimar la distancia entre el borde del hígado y el borde costal en la línea mamaria como índice aproximado del grado de hipertrofia hipática.


Si el hígado está aumentado de volumen, hay que buscar indicios de ictericia en la conjuntiva. Se examinará cuidadosamente la piel en busca de excoriaciones características del rascado por prurito, de ictericia y de angiomas en araña. Estos angiomas se observan en la pared torácica anterior en forma de finas estructuras vasculares de color rojo vivo que se ramifican irradiando desde el punto central. Las manos pueden tener el enrojecimiento característico en las eminencias tenar e hipotenar, o puede haber venas abdominales dilatadas.


Vesícula biliar aumentada de volumen


La vesícula biliar aumentada de volumen se palpa como tumor redondeado liso en el cuadrante superior derecho. Suele hallarse inmediatamente por fuera del borde externo del músculo recto, pero son muchas las variaciones al respecto. Puede estar más lejos, en el flanco, o más cerca, en el epigastrio. Su borde inferior es neto, liso y redondeado; el superior no puede definirse, ya que se desvanece debajo del borde costal o uniéndose con el del hígado.


Una vesícula biliar aumentada de volumen y muy sensible a la palpación es característica de colecistitis aguda.


En presencia de obstrucción por cálculo biliar, la vesícula suele estar por haber sufrido colecistitis recurrentes, y no se halla en condiciones de dilatarse. Este dato es muy útil, pero no son raras las excepciones.



Bazo aumentado de volumen


El único signo neto de bazo ligera o moderadamente aumentado de volumen puede ser un impulso percibido por las puntas de los dedos que palpan cuando el paciente inspira. La percusión puede confirmar la presencia de cierta hipertrofia esplénica. En caso de aumento considerable de volumen del órgano, se percibe fácilmente extendido a lo largo del cuadrante superior izquierdo. En el borde puede descubrirse una muesca neta. Esta denominada "muesca esplénica" es signo diagnóstico importante, pero en muchos casos imposible de identificar.





Si se sospecha esplenomegalia, hay que buscar los signos físicos de "hiperesplenismo". Investíguense conjuntivas, mucosas y piel en busca de palidez, púrpura o ictericia.



Riñones

La inspección del abdomen puede descubrir la presencia de tumoraciones en uno o ambos lados del abdomen en relación a un aumento de tamaño renal unilateral o bilateral. En la fosa lumbar aparecen signos inflamatorios agudos como tumor, rubor o dolor en relación con un absceso perinefrítico y además, equímosis en relación a un trauma renal. En lo que respecta a la palpación, los riñones normales no son palpables, excepto el riñón derecho que, en pacientes delgados, puede palparse en posición de pie como una masa ovoidea y lisa.


Procedimiento bimanual a la palpación


El paciente colocado en decúbito supino, relajado y el médico sentado del mismo lado del riñón que se explora, se coloca la mano izquierda, si se trata de palpar el riñón derecho, en la fosa renal y se ejerce sobre ella una presión moderada y constante. La mano derecha se coloca en la pared anterior del abdomen, por debajo del reborde costal y por fuera del borde externo del músculo recto anterior de ese lado. Los dedos deben quedar en un plano paralelo a la pared abdominal y el médico hace presión con la yema de los mismos. La mano derecha debe ir profundizando hacia la pared posterior hasta llegar a palpar el riñón de ese lado cuando está descendido o aumentado de tamaño.




Riñón aumentado de volumen


El polo inferior del riñón derecho muchas veces resulta palpable. El riñón izquierdo, cuando es palpable, está aumentado de volumen o desplazado hacia bajo. Un riñón aumentado de volumen se identifica por su posición posterior; la mano que palpa debe llegar a la profundidad del abdomen antes de percibir su borde redondeado. El órgano desciende bien con la respiración y luego se desliza entre las manos que palpan cuando el paciente espira. A veces puede percibirse la forma de habichuela que tiene un riñón aumentado de volumen. Si la mano situado en el flanco se eleva, el impulso es transmitido al riñón y puede percibirlo fácilmente la mano abdominal. Este signo es particularmente útil para distinguir entre un riñón hidronefrótico aumentado de volumen y sensible, y una vesícula biliar sensible y dilatada.
El aumento de volumen de ambos riñón hará sospechar enfermedad poliquística congénita. Un aumento renal netamente anterior suele depender de enfermedad neoplásica. El órgano parece conservar su situación posterior incluso en caso de gran aumento de volumen por hidronefrosis. En contraste con una lesión esplénica o hepática, suele haber timpanismo por encima de la masa renal, gracias a la presencia del colon.




Diferencia entre el bazo y el riñón izquierdo


Puede haber confusión entre una hipertrofia intensa del bazo y un riñón netamente aumentado de volumen. En general, el bazo es órgano anterior, el riñón es posterior. El borde libre del bazo es más agudo que el del riñón, y siempre se halla en dirección más hacia abajo. Palpando cuidadosamente el flanco puede percibirse una falta de sustancia entre el borde posterior del bazo y el grupo de músculos erectores de la columna vertebral; esto resulta imposible en caso de aumento de volumen del riñón.


Abdomen Agudo


En caso de "abdomen agudo",el diagnóstico preciso requiere valorar cuidadosamente todas las probabilidades.





Inspección


Observese la posición que adopta el paciente. En caso de cólicos intensos, no podrá quedarse acostado y tranquilo; sí hay infección peritoneal estará inmóvil con sus rodillas flexionadas a pesar el intenso dolor. Obsérvese el expresión de su cara y la frecuencia respiratoria. Vigilese en particular la separación de los músculos rectos, la ausencia de los movimientos respiratorios normales y el peristaltismo visible.





Auscultación


El examinador debe conocer bien los sonidos peristálticos normales. Cuando se sospecha abdomen agudo, el peristaltismo puede estar aumentado, disminuido o ausente. Se admite que no hay peristaltismo cuando no pueden percibirse ruidos peritoneales auscultando durante varios minutos. La ausencia de peristaltismo significa que hay íleo paralítico por irritación peritoneal difusa. El peristaltismo aumentado suele manifestarse en tres formas:


1. El Borborigmo intenso y casi constante que varía de intensidad para sin caracteres definidos se observa en la gastroenteritis aguda o en los trastornos digestivos por transgresiones dietéticas. Este tipo de peristaltismo no tiene ritmo definido y presenta variaciones sin relación alguna con las molestias intestinales del paciente.
2. Menos comunes, pero mucho más importantes, son los ruidos producidos por las contracciones rítmicas de los intestinos en la obstrucción mecánica aguda. En este el vientre está silencioso entre los períodos de cólico, cuando se perciben borborigmos de intensidad creciente; llegan hasta un máximo para disminuir luego gradualmente hasta que sólo perciben unos pocos retintines ligeros. El paciente percibe los espasmos dolorosos que aumentan y cesen con la actividad peristáltica. Una vez oído, el crescendo peristáltico rítmico de la obstrucción mecánica aguda no puede confundirse.
3. En la obstrucción parcial crónica del intestino delgado bajo y en las fases de recuperación de una inflamación peritoneal difusa se perciben gorgoteos sonoros y ruidos de retintin cuando pasa asas dilatadas y llenas de líquido sufren contracciones periódicas. Este tipo de peristaltismo no tiene carácter rítmico; a veces se acompaña de contracciones abdominales.




Palpación


Se comienza por indicar al paciente que tosa. En caso de inflamación peritoneal aguda esto suele despertar un brusco dolor abdominal agudo localizado en la zona afectada. Es extraordinariamente importante investigar este "dolor por la tos" y hacer que el paciente indique con un dedo el punto exacto donde le duele. Esto localiza la zona de inflamación antes que el examinador llegue a tocar el abdomen. Por lo tanto, podrá dejar la palpación de esta zona para cuando esté completado el examen del resto del abdomen.


Descubrimiento de un espasmo y distinción entre espasmo voluntario e involuntario. Es esencial no causar molestia al paciente. Las manos del examinador han de estar calientes.


La rigidez total de ambos rectos indica irritación peritoneal difusa. El espasmo segmentario de un recto se encuentra al comienzo de la peritonitis. Sin embargo, como no hay compartimientos que limiten el desplazamiento del líquido peritoneal hacia un lado del abdomen, la rigidez amplia que afecta a un músculo recto en toda su longitud, con flaccidez completa del otro, no puede depender de peritonitis o irritación peritoneal. La rigidez unilateral amplia es de origen reflejo y se observa acompañado al dolor renal agudo.


La palpación simultánea d ambos músculos rectos tiene valor para determinar el grado y carácter del espasmo abdominal.


Limitación de la zona de hipersensibilidad. La hipersensibilidad causada por trastornos como la apendicitis aguda o la colecistitis aguda se halla localizada estrictamente a la zona inmediata al órgano interesado, a menos que haya peritonitis que se esté extendiendo. Esta observación sólo puede lograrse efectuando palpación cuidadosa y delicada con un solo dedo. La palpación con toda la mano puede dar una falsa impresión de zona de hipersensibilidad, ya que no permite la localización precisa. Para localizar la hipersensibilidad también puede utilizarse la percusión ligera del abdomen.


Descubrimiento de una masa. Una vez el examinador ha localizado exactamente la topografía de la zona dolorosa sin causar dolor. Ha determinado, asimismo, de presencia e intensidad del espasmo muscular. Después intenta palpar el abdomen más profundamente; la rigidez verdadera de la musculatura lo hará imposible. Puede ser extraordinariamente difícil identificar órganos o masas, incluso en ausencia de rigidez, si hay hipersensibilidad exquisita. Sin embargo, por palpación muy delicada sin causar tanto dolor que produzca espasmo voluntario, el clínico experimentado puede delinear perfectamente los bordes de masas dolorosas, como una vesícula biliar a tensión o un absceso apendicular.


Siempre será bueno palpar el vientre agudo por segunda vez después que el paciente ha recibido morfina, y de nuevo en la mesa de operaciones después de la inducción anestética. Observando esta regla muchas veces se descubrirán masas que habían pasado inadvertidas. También permite valorar de manera más precisa la índole de las masas ya descubiertas.




Percusión del abdomen


La percusión delicada es útil para localizar una zona de hipersensibilidad. A veces también revela una zona inesperada de macicez coincidiendo con hipersensibilidad; esto hará sospechar una masa hasta entonces inadvertida que desplaza los intestinos. Los signos de desplazamiento de la macicez dentro del abdomen pueden establecer el diagnóstico de hemorragia intraabdominal y otros.





Pruebas Especiales


Existen cierto número de pruebas especiales que en casos determinados pueden ser muy útiles para aclarar el diagnostico.


Dolor de Rebote. Este signo se descubre ejerciendo presión intensa sobre el vientre en un lado lejos de la zona donde se sospecha un proceso inflamatorio agudo, y luego suprimiendo bruscamente tal presión. Cuando la pared abdominal regresa rápidamente a su posición normal, el paciente percibe un dolor agudo en la zona donde se ejerció la presión o bien a nivel del proceso inflamatorio. El dolor de rebote referido al lado opuesto, que es el de la lesión, constituye un dato confirmatorio de irritación peritoneal aguda localizada a la zona dolorosa. Tiene igual significado que el dolor al toser y merece mayor confianza, ya que se observa en oasos en que la tos no provoca molestias.






El dolor de rebote referido al punto donde se ejerció la presión en una zona cualquiera del abdomen indica irritación peritoneal difusa. En caso de peritonitis difusa no procede utilizar esta maniobra, que resulta muy dolorosa para el paciente. En caso dudosos, sobre todo en pacientes obesos fuertemente musculados y que tienen epiplón grueso, este signo tiene gran valor para determinar la extensión de un proceso inflamatorio.


Prueba del psoas iliaco. El paciente intenta flexionar Su muslo contra una ligera presión ejercida por la mano del examinador. Se produce dolor sí hay un proceso inflamatorio en contacto con el músculo psoas. Pueden descubrirse grados ligeros de irritación haciendo que el paciente descanse sobre el lado opuesto y extiende por completo el muslo del lado afectado.



Prueba del Obturador. Se flexiona el muslo en ángulo recto y luego se gira hacia afuera y adentro. Puede despertarse dolor hipogástrico sí hay una masa inflamatoria en contacto con el músculo obturador interno. El signo puede ser positivo en caso de apendicitis pelviana o de acumulación de líquido o sangre en la pelvis.


Percusión de la pared torácica anterior baja con el puño. Puede obtenerse resultado positivo en diversos procesos, incluyendo la hepatitis aguda. El signo es positivo en presencia de colecistitis aguda. Es dato accesorio útil; sí es negativo, el examinador deberá tener cautela antes de establecer el diagnóstico de inflamación abdominal aguda alta.


Signo del dolor contralateral. A veces puede ser difícil distinguir entre un proceso torácico que causa dolor y rigidez abdominales y un proceso inflamatorio en un cuadrante alto del abdomen. La presión en un cuadrante alto del abdomen ejercida profundamente y en dirección al lado afectado muchas veces produce dolor si la enfermedad es intraabdominal; no lo causa si el proceso se halla por encima del diafragma.


Paro inspiratorio(Murphy). Es signo excelente de colecistitis aguda. Se dice al paciente que inspire profundamente y al mismo tiempo se ejerce presión intensa contra la pared abdominal en la región de la vesícula biliar. Como el hígado desciende, la vesícula es llevada en contacto de los dedos del examinador. El paciente experimenta un dolor agudo y la inspiración se interrumpe bruscamente.


Color azulado del ombligo (Cullen). Puede observarse tinte azulado de la piel del ombligo en caso de hemoperitoneo extenso. El fenómeno fue descrito originalmente como signo de embarazo ectópico roto. Puede observarse en cualquier proceso que cause salida de un volumen considerable de sangre a la cavidad abdominal. Su ausencia no excluye la hemorragia intraperitoneal.




Apendicitis Aguda


Inflamación aguda del apéndice cecal, que produce abdomen agudo en la fosa iliaca derecha.




Las manifestaciones de esta enfermedad son innumerables. Puede simular casi todos los demás procesos abdominales agudos. Las diferencias de localización del apéndice, y de extensión e intensidad del progreso del proceso inflamatorio, explican la gran variedad de síndrome clínicos.


Inspección


En las primeras fases el paciente quizá no parezca muy enfermo. Se queja de dolor persistente, que suele aumentar con el movimiento. Prefiere estar acostado y quieto. Al levantarse o andar quizá se sostenga el lado derecho. Por inspección del abdomen no se descubrirá anomalía alguna.


Auscultación


El peristaltismo puede estar disminuido, pero suele ser normal.


Palpación


El dolor producido por la tos se referirá al cuadrante inferior derecho. Palpando el abdomen con un dedo se comprobará dolor bien localizado en el cuadrante inferior derecho en la zona del punto de McBurney. Generalmente corresponde al punto donde el paciente percibe el "dolor por la tos". Puede haber espasmo voluntario del músculo recto derecho, pero no espasmo verdadero. La rigidez indica inflamación peritoneal y no es signo de apendicitis que comienza.


Los exámenes rectal y pelviano en las primeras etapas serán negativos. El único dato físico neto en la apendicitis que comienza es el dolor localizado. Este dato es tan seguro que el.dolor generalizado o difuso puede considerarse signo seguro en contra del diagnóstico de apendicitis no complicada.


Colecistitis Aguda
Inflamación de la vesícula biliar.




Inspección


La frecuencia respiratoria suele estar aumentada, a veces tanto que puede sospecharse neumonía. Esta taquipnea puede atribuirse en parte a que la vesícula aumentada de volumen y con inflamación aguda al respirar entra en contacto con la pared anterior y aumenta el dolor. La respiración superficial y rápida Lo evita y brinda al paciente alivio considerable.


La ligera distensión del abdomen alto suele ser signo precoz y no depende de peritonitis. Esta distención es atribuible al aire que ha deglutido el paciente considerando erróneamente que tiene "gas en su estómago". Esta reacción es muy común en caso de colecistitis aguda.


Auscultación


Prácticamente siempre hay peristaltismo; puede ser muy activo. El abdomen silencioso suele ser signo tardío e indica perforación de la vesícula. Si se observa en etapa precoz, hay que sospechar úlcera duodenal perforada más que colecistitis aguda.


Los signos de percusión con el puño y de paro inspiratorio suelen ser positivos. Ambos pueden ser positivos en presencia de hígado doloroso por insuficiencia cardíaca o hepatitis aguda. Indican que hay un proceso inflamatorio agudo en el abdomen agudo; debe ponerse en duda el diagnóstico de colecistitis aguda si son negativos.


Palpación


En las primeras etapas de la enfermedad, la palpación con un dedo localizará el dolor a nivel de la vesícula biliar. No hay rigidez, pero en muchos casos el espasmo voluntario es tan intenso que hay que tener cuidado para excluir el espasmo muscular verdadero. Una palpación cuidadosa, con precaución, generalmente permite descubrir la masa muy dolorosa, tensa, piriforme, formada por la vesícula aumentada de volumen. La identificación de la vesícula dolorosa por palpación constituye el dato diagnóstico más seguro de colecistitis aguda.


Úlcera gástrica o duodenal perforada




Los signos físicos varían según la etapa de la enfermedad. El colapso puede dominar el cuadro si el paciente se examina poco después de iniciado el proceso. El paciente tiene color ceniza, sufre mareo, transpira y se queja de dolor epigástrico o retrosternal intenso. Es común la hipotensión, pero la frecuencia del pulso generalmente no es mayor de 100. Por examen físico los datos más manifiestos son la retracción del epigastrio, la rigidez de manera de la musculatura abdominal, el dolor generalizado, el dolor por tacto rectal y la ausencia de peristaltismo.


El estado del paciente parece haber mejorado si se observa algo más tarde o si el dolor se alivió con medicación. Se recupera el color, para estado sincopal y la presión sanguínea se normaliza. La frecuencia del pulso puede no estar muy aumentada, pero generalmente el pulso rebota, es lleno y más rápido que al comienzo del proceso cuando el paciente parecía hallarse en colapso. Un pulso filiforme y muy rápido no es característico de peritonitis que comienza; es signo tardío de la misma.


Hay que insistir en cierto puntos como signos de perforación anterior libre de una úlcera gástrica o duodenal. La rigidez es de madera. La retracción del epigastrio por contracción de los rectos abdominales y del diafragma suele observarse en personas delgadas. El abdomen parece tener una faja que lo comprime. Puede estar disminuida o haber desaparecido la macicez hepática. El timpanismo por delante del hígado tiene poco valor, ya que muchas veces depende de gas que existe en asas de intestino delgado.







Pancreatitis Aguda


Inflamación aguda del páncreas. En las enfermedades pancreáticas los datos abdominales pueden ser mínimos o incluso nulos, dada la posición protegida del páncreas detrás del estómago, colon y epiplón gastrocólico. En la pancreatitis aguda ligera el paciente tiene aspecto muy enfermo, pero el examen de abdomen a veces sólo demuestra tensión dolorosa vagamente localizada en el epigastrio. En la pancreatitis necrosante aguda el paciente puede estar en colapso con irregularidades cardiacas que hagan sospechar oclusión coronaria. Al principio los signos de peritonitis pueden faltar; cuando existen, indican que la enfermedad está muy avanzada. El daño físico más fiel es el dolor profundo a nivel del páncreas y cuadrante superior izquierdo. Es frecuente el edema de los flancos en los casos más avanzados. Suele haber distensión abdominal y peristaltismo disminuido o ausente. Por lo regular, la rigidez abdominal no es signo precoz.




Diverticulitis Aguda


Divertículo: es una dilatación sacular de algún tramo del tubo digestivo. La diverticulitis es una inflamación de estos.


La diverticulitis causa dolor difuso y suele haber signos de peritonitis local, incluso en las primeras etapas de la enfermedad. Es frecuente descubrir una masa palpable en el cuadrante inferior izquierdo o en la pelvis. Más raramente produce obstrucción aguda del color, y estos signos y síntomas pueden o distinguirse de los que se observan en caso de carcinoma cólico. Una masa inflamatoria en el flanco o en la ingle puede ser producida por la perforación de un divertículo. Este puede abrirse directamente en la vejiga urinaria.




Oclusión Vascular Mesentérica


La oclusión de los vasos mesentéricos, venosos o arteriales, se caracteriza por contraste notable entre la gravedad de los síntomas y lo mínimo de los signos abdominales. El síndrome suele consistir en dolor abdominal persistente e intenso acompañado de signos variables de trastorno gastrointestinal, como vómitos, diarrea o alteraciones de la función intestinal. Sin embargo, los signos físicos en el abdomen se arecen bastante a los de la pancreatitis aguda, con la cual suele confundirse la oclusión de los vasos mesentéricos. En las primeras etapas no hay irritación peritoneal; muchas veces la única anomalía es el dolor a la palpación profunda. El peristaltismo puede ser normal o hiperactivo. El espasmo y la distensión son manifestaciones tardías que sólo aparecen después de producirse gangrena del intestino con peritonitis.


El curso de la enfermedad depende de la extensión y localización de la oclusión. Una oclusión del tronco venoso principal hace que el paciente sufra hemorragia masiva en el mesenterio, con choque y colapso rápidos. Las oclusiones de grandes arterias también se acompaña de choque considerable. Sin embargo, con oclusiones arteriales o venosas lo más frecuente es que el paciente sufra dolor abdominal intenso y persistente, rebelde a las medidas generalmente empleadas para aliviarlo, y con muy pocas anomalías perceptibles por examen abdominal. Un aumento progresivo de la frecuencia del pulso y de la leucocitosis guían mejor que los signos abdominales para sospechar la verdad del proceso. Finalmente aparecen los signos de peritonitis.









Rotura de un Aneurisma Abdominal


Un aneurisma es una dilatación circunscrita a las paredes de una estructura vascular, generalmente arterial o miocardica lesionada.


La rotura ocurre hacia el espacio retroperitoneal, pero a menudo hay hemorragia hacia la cavidad peritoneal o rara vez hacia una víscera o a la vena cava. Los signos son los de un trastorno abdominal grave con dolor agudísimo y choque. La irritación peritoneal puede ser mínima. Una masa pulsátil hacia el flanco y abdomen inferior, junto con signos de choque y hemorragia, establecen el diagnóstico. En contraste con el aneurisma disecante, los pulsos, por regla, no están obliterados y sólo desaparecen como manifestación del choque profundo.


El pronóstico, incluso con intervención quirúrgica, es grave, siendo de gran importancia reconocer la lesión antes de la rotura.




Obstrucción simple del intestino delgado


Los signos físicos dependen de la causa y de la localización del proceso. En la obstrucción simple aguda que se inicia en el intestino delgado y que depende de una brida o de una hernia interna, el dato más digno de confianza es el tipo característico de ruido peristáltico. La inspección demostrará que el paciente sufre crisis intermitentes de cólicos, entre las cuales se siente perfectamente bien. A veces puede observarse una onda peristáltica si la pared abdominal es delgada y fláccida. Muy pronto la auscultación revelará el peristaltismo rítmico clásico que va aumentando a medida que el paciente sufre el cólico. Cuando el dolor cede, el peristaltismo también desaparece.


Entre las crisis de dolor, el abdomen está silencioso o sólo se perciben unos pocos ruidos de peristaltismo normal. La palpación puede descubrir dolor a nivel del asa intestinal afectada, signo importante pero no obligado. El asa intestinal afectada puede estar tan bien protegida de la mano que palpa, que al comienzo de la enfermedad resulte imposible despertar dolor neto. En esta etapa inicial una radiografía simple del abdomen suelen demostrar una asa de intestino delgado dilatada.


En todos los pacientes con obstrucción intestinal hay que examinar una y otra vez con cuidado las zonas de posibles hernias.




Obstrucción del Colon


La obstrucción del colon suele depender de carcinoma, diverticulitis, invaginación o vólvulo.




Invaginación


Suele producirse en niños, pero se observa también en adultos, sobre todo en casos de tumor benigno que da lugar a la investigación. Los signos físicos varían hasta cierto grado según la etapa de la enfermedad. El dolor casi siempre es intenso, pero no continuo. Entre las crisis dolorosas el paciente se acuesta y queda inmóvil con las rodillas flexionadas. Suele haber cierta tendencia a síncope y colapso, especialmente si el dolor es muy intenso y agotador. A veces pueden observarse ondas peristálticas.


Un dato físico notable, que suele permitir el diagnóstico seguro, es la presencia de una masa abdominal en forma de salchicha. Se encuentra a cualquier nivel a lo largo del colon, según la fase de la enfermedad. Siempre se percibirá si se han eliminado heces sanguinolentos por el recto; puede resultar difícil de demostrar si se halla debajo de un hipocondrio, a nivel de una flexura cólica. Con frecuencia la palpación cuidadosa del cuadrante inferior derecho del abdomen permite confirmar la sospecha; parecerá vacío por ausencia de ciego y colon ascendente. En etapas más avanzadas la punta de la invaginación puede resultar palpable en el recto. Es clásica la combinación de dolor abdominal cólico, eliminación de sangre por el recto y percepción de una masa en forma de salchicha dentro del abdomen.


Peritonitis


Inflamación del peritoneo producidas por bacterias o sustancias irritantes, que se introducen en la cavidad abdominal por una herida penetrante o por la perforación de un órgano digestivo o reproductor.


La peritonitis difusa aguda se manifiesta por signos tan importantes que procede describirlos como una entidad nosológica.


El paciente se ve grave y ansioso. El observador perspicaz descubrirá palidez facial y un ligero movimiento de las alas de la nariz, incluso en las primeras etapas del proceso. El pulso suele ser frecuente, casi siempre por encima de 100, lleno y saltón. En la peritonitis avanzada se vuelve débil, rápido y filiforme. Sin embargo, se ven excepciones, y no hay que dejarse engañar por un pulso lento. En el paciente de constitución fuerte quizá no esté perturbado el sistema circulatorio por la infección y la pérdida de plasma a la cavidad peritoneal, que produciría choque en una persona asténica y delgada.


El paciente peritonítico está acostado, inmóvil,de preferencia en decúbito lateral, con los muslos ligeramente flexionados para relajar la musculatura abdominal. Cualquier movimiento resulta doloroso. Esta postura es la opuesta de la que se observa en pacientes con cólicos abdominales, quienes no pueden permanecer quietos durante las crisis de dolor.


La observación del abdomen tiene gran importancia. Muy pronto se vuelve escafoideo y retraído, sobre todo nivel del epigastrio. Este aspecto depende del espasmo de los músculos rectos y de la limitación de movimientos del diafragma. El abdomen no presenta los movimientos respiratorios normales; parece lleno, con ligera prominencia del ombligo a medida que aparece la distensión; cuando es intensa es rara y debe considerarse signo muy tardío o demostración de una intestinal asociado.




Palpación


El grado de rigidez muscular varía. Si la pared anterior de la cavidad peritoneal está incluida en un proceso inflamatorio generalizado, la rigidez será de madera, sin ceder para nada a la presión intensa. Esto ocurre incluso cuando el paciente respira profundamente con la boca abierta. También puede observarse en la apendicitis obstructiva con gangrena y perforación precores. La rigidez no es signo precoz ni notable en la peritonitis que acompaña a la pancreatitis aguda, aguda, ya que el proceso inflamatorio se origina en zonas profundas del abdomen, y el epiplón puede proteger la pared abdominal anterior del líquido peritoneal extravasado. En personas avanzada o debilitadas, incluso en presencia de una perforación libre, puede ocurrir con alguna frecuencia que no haya rigidez muscular intensa, simplemente a causa del poco tono muscular.


El dolor en todo el abdomen, con dolor de rebote referido al punto donde se ejerce la presión, es característico de la peritonitis difusa o generalizada. El dolor por la tos no está netamente localizado, sino que tiende a referirse de manera imprecisa al centro del vientre; investigar este signo puede causar gran molestia. Después de administrar un sedente, y nuevamente después del periodo de inducción anestésica, hay que repetir la palpación del abdomen, con diagnóstico o sin él.


Percusión


Siempre será cuidadosa y delicada, pues quizá permita limitar una masa imposible de palpar a consecuencia del dolor y el espasmo. La percusión de la zona de macicez hepática puede indicar la presencia de aire libre en la cavidad peritoneal.


Auscultación


El abdomen se vuelve rápidamente silencioso.


Abdomen Operado


El examen del abdomen operado se compara en varios aspectos con el examen del vientre agudo. El descubrimiento de complicaciones y el cuidado del paciente dependen de una buena interpretación del dolor, la tensión, el espasmo, el peristaltismo, la distensión y los cambios de temperatura, pulso y respiración. También hay algunas complicaciones más o menos peculiares de traumatismos quirúrgicos, como retención urinaria, distensión posoperatoria, hemorragia y dilatación gástrica aguda.


Signos de peligro después de una intervención abdominal de cirugía mayor


Los signos de peligro en este caso son dolor persistente, pulso rápida, respiraciones frecuentes y disnea en ausencia de complicación pulmonar, distensión precoz y abdomen silencioso por auscultación. La presencia de cualquiera de estos signos requiere apreciación cuidadosa de la situación.


Hay un hecho que debe tenerse muy presente: el empleo liberal de antibióticos hace excepcionalmente difícil valorar el estado posoperatorio del abdomen.


Retención de orina


Es parte esencial del tratamiento posoperatorio determinar si el paciente ha orinado o no después de la intervención. Si no ha orinado en plazo de seis a ocho horas hay que buscar los signos físicos de distensión vesical. Con frecuencia el diagnóstico se establece fácilmente porque el paciente tiene deseo doloroso de orinar pero no puede lograrlo. La palpación y la percusión de la parte baja del abdomen descubrirán una masa dolorosa ovalada y la vejiga excesivamente distendida. Sin embrago, el cuadro no siempre es tan neto. Con cierta frecuencia la vejiga se distiende tan lentamente que el paciente sufre poca o ninguna molestia, y el único signo de retención urinaria es el gran volumen vesical. En pacientes obsesos quizá resulte difícil descubrir los signos de la vejiga distendida. Una presión ligera efectuada inmediatamente por encima de la sínfisis pubiana suele aumentar el dolor y hacer evidente so carácter, pero quizá resulte necesario emplear la sonda para comprobar o excluir la presencia de un vejiga distendida.


Distensión Posoperatoria


Muchas operaciones abdominales van seguidas de un tipo particular de íleo funcional. Se caracteriza por distensión abdominal y dolores en calambre que el paciente considera “producidos por gas”. Aparecen después de 36 horas, o más de la operación, y en la mayor parte de casos ceden rápidamente tan pronto como el paciente empieza a eliminar gasas por el recto.


Dilatación Gástrica Aguda


La dilatación aguda del estómago puede ser complicación de la distención posoperatorio o de la peritonitis. En sus formas más ligeras puede ser consecuencia de una deglución excesiva de aire y de tomar líquidos antes que se haya restablecido la actividad normal del intestino. A veces alcanza proporciones extremas, al punto de dificultar la respiración. El hipo es síntoma frecuente. El paciente puede vomitar, pero generalmente regurgita una y otra vez pequeñas cantidades de líquido pardo obscuro.


La dilatación gástrica aguda puede ser signo de peritonitis, en cuyo caso hay otros signos de peritonitis e íleo paralítico.


Peritonitis


Después de intervención abdominal una peritonitis progresiva raramente se produce por simple contaminación de la cavidad peritoneal. La ocasionan la necrosis del intestino, la fuga a nivel de una anastomosis, el rezumamiento de bilis o la pancreatitis aguda.




Absceso Residual


Los absceso intraperitoneales son consecuencia de infecciones del peritoneo, localizadas o difusas. Muchas veces la peritonitis ha sido manifiesta, como en caso de apendicitis aguda o de úlcera duodenal perforadas. En otras ocasiones, sobre todo después de una operación aséptica en el abdomen, una peritonitis localizada puede pasar inadvertida, y el desarrollo de un absceso residual constituye la primera indicación de que las cosas no van bien.


Los abscesos pueden producirse en cualquier lugar de la cavidad peritoneal. La localizaciones más frecuentes son pelvianas y a nivel del campo operatorio inmediato, pero pueden desarollarse absceso entre asas de intestino delgado, en los canales peritoneales, a lo largo del trayecto del colon o en los espacios subdiafragmático.


Signos de un Absceso Residual


Curva febril en escalera, un poco más elevada cada día, sin volver nunca a la normal.
Masa ligeramente dolorosa e indurada en el fondo de saco de Douglas.
Diarrea irritativa.
Anorexia
Dificultad para ganar peso y fuerza.
Dolor abdominal vago.
Elevación moderada de la frecuencia del pulso.


Hemorragia


La hemorragia intraperitoneal posoperatorio ha pasado a ser complicación extraordinariamente rara; tan rara, de hecho, que el cirujano apenas puede pensar en ella. Se trata de una complicación precoz, que suele desarrollarse durante las primeras 24 horas posoperatorias. Casi nunca se observa hemorragia retrasada después de una operación abdominal de elección, aunque puede ser complicación de heridas abdominales. Los signos físicos son los de pérdida aguda de sangre. La palidez, el sudor, la ansiedad y la sed de aire pueden hacer sospechar el diagnóstico mejor la frecuencia del pulso o el valor de la presión arterial.

Signo de Murphy:

Está presente en la colecistitis aguda. Se refiere al dolor que siente el paciente cuando éste realiza una inspiración profunda mientras se realiza una palpación por debajo del reborde costal derecho, debido al contacto entre la vesicula biliar inflamada y la palma de la mano.


Signo de Cullen:
Coloración equimótica, azulada o amarilla, del ombligo, debida a un derrame sanguíneo intraperitoneal, visible solamente en los individuos delgados o afectos de hernia umbilical.






Tacto rectal.
Es un examen que debe realizarse de rutina. Aunque en muchas ocasiones éste puede ser negativo, en algunos casos podemos encontrar un fondo de saco de Douglas sumamente doloroso, sobre todo cuando hay perforación del apéndice y derrame purulento, y en otras se puede palpar una masa dolorosa que podría corresponder a un plastron o absceso apendicular. Aparte de esto en muchas oportunidades es útil en el diagnóstico diferencial de casos ginecológicos.





Punto de McBurney
Se obtiene presionando la fosa ilíaca derecha en un punto que corresponde a la unión del 1/3 externo con los 2/3 internos de una línea trazada de la espina ilíaca anterosupe-rior derecha hasta el ombligo. El dolor producido con esta maniobra es el encontrado con mayor regularidad.




Signo contralateral de Blumberg
Se realiza de la misma manera, pero presionando la fosa ilíaca izquierda y despertando dolor en fosa ilíaca derecha.

          LESIONES DE LA CAVIDAD BUCAL   


Cáncer
La lesión más importante de la cavidad bucal, que debe pasar inadvertida en un examen sistemático, es el cáncer. Puede producirse en cualquier zona de la boca, pero generalmente respeta el dorso de la lengua por delante de las papilas circunvalares. Sus lugares de elección son los lados y la superficie inferior de la lengua, su base, el suelo de la boca, los bordes alveolares y la mucosa bucal. Cualquier ulceración debe sospechar el cáncer, mientras no se demuestre lo contrario por biopsia o por un breve periodo de observación cuidadosa.


Cáncer de lengua.

El cáncer de lengua es tal vez el tumor maligno que más altera la calidad de vida del paciente. Por ser la lengua un órgano muy inervado, cuando el tumor crece produce dolores muy intensos, al punto de no poder tragar ni la propia saliva, la que se escurre por las comisuras. Además de no poder alimentarse, el dolor hace insoportable la deglución, lo mismo que el habla. Posteriormente se presentan infecciones, debido al medio séptico de la boca, lo cual, además de la gran dificultad que hay para hacer una adecuada higiene oral, conllevan un mal olor insoportable, no sólo para el mismo paciente, sino para las personas a su alrededor.
El sitio en que con mayor frecuencia se presenta el cáncer de lengua es en los dos tercios anteriores, seguido por el borde lateral del tercio medio. Los siguientes en frecuencia son los de la base y por último los situados por debajo de la punta de la lengua.
Los signos y síntomas más importantes pueden ser:
1. Dolor
2. Infiltración indurada.
3. Tumor vegetante.
4. Odinofagia.
5. Odino disfagia.
6. Otalgia.
Los carcinomas de los dos tercios anteriores de la lengua son, casi siempre, de tipo escamocelular bien diferenciados.
Son menos frecuentes los mal diferenciados de células transicionales, pero cuando se presentan son de peor pronóstico y desarrollan metástasis más rápidamente
La diseminación linfática se realiza principalmente a los ganglios digástricos y submaxilares, aunque pueden saltar estaciones ganglionares dando metástasis en el tercio medio yugular. Entre el 25% y 35% de los pacientes se presentan a la consulta con ganglios clínicamente positivos y 5% son bilaterales.
La estatificación generalmente es reconocida como un factor fundamental en el pronóstico de los pacientes. En el caso de los carcinomas de lengua esto es realmente importante ya que los T4 tienen un pronóstico pésimo y el tratamiento es, casi siempre, muy mutilante llegándose con frecuencia a glosectomía total con el consiguiente deterioro de la calidad de vida para el paciente.
Los carcinomas del piso de la boca son, como regla general, menos diferenciados que los de la lengua. Son, prácticamente todos, escamocelulares y queratinizados.
Clínicamente, se presentan inicialmente como una pequeña úlcera limpia, de base áspera, de bordes elevados, infiltrados y duros. En un principio se aprecia pequeña invasión subyacente y posteriormente la induración se hace profunda, dentro de la lengua o el piso de la boca.
Otro tipo clínico es el papilomatoso o proliférativo. Es histológicamente menos diferenciado. Se presenta generalmente en la punta de la lengua y muy ocasionalmente, en el piso de la boca. Tiene marcada hiperqueratinización, invade tardíamente los músculos y los linfáticos; el pronóstico es mejor que en los tipos anteriores. El tipo infiltrante presenta histológicamente menos diferenciación, crece más rápidamente, produce invasión linfática y por lo tanto metástasis cervicales más tempranas. El carcinoma no ulcerado es el menos frecuente; casi siempre se presenta en la base de la lengua o en los bordes laterales.


Cáncer de labio
Se observa sobre todo en los varones después de los 50 años. Aparece con interrupción superficial de la mucosa a nivel de la unión mucocutánea, o como excrecencia verrugosa. Puede tener aspecto fungoso, pero generalmente se difunde como ulcera indurada indolora. Las metástasis son tardías. Las lesiones situadas en el centro de los labios suelen invadir los ganglios submentonianos y las situadas en los lados se difunden primero a los ganglios submaxilares. El labio inferior es afectado con mas frecuencia que el superior.






LeucoplasiaEs un término utilizado para ciertas lesiones bucales que presentan histológicamente algunas disqueratosis, como papilomatosis, hiperqueratosis, acantosis cuya característica principal es ser una placa blanquecina que normalmente no puede desprenderse por raspado, forma parte del epitelio, y está en crecimiento.
Es blanca porque es un engrosamiento epitelial con hiperproducción de queratina. Es una lesión delimitada y asociada a factores que la provocan, sobre todo el tabaco, dejando el consumo puede llegar a remitir. También puede aparecer en zonas no queratinizadas, suelo bucal, lengua, por lo cual se recomienda hacer siempre biopsia, es complejo saber si una lesión es cáncer o leucoplasia a simple vista. Tiene una mayor prevalencia en varones entre 40-70 años.








Lesiones benignas de la lengua
Es mucho lo que cabe descubrir con una inspección cuidadosa de la lengua. Su humedad es indicación de buena hidratación, siempre que el paciente no respire por la boca.Se observan cambios característicos como la arriboflavinosis, las papilas están aplanadas y la lengua tiene aspecto de cuero y color pardo rojizo oscuro.


En la pelagra, el epitelio de la lengua se ulcera superficialmente y deja una superficie cruenta dolorosa. Una lengua ulcerada recubierta de placas blanquecinas, que permiten descubrir monilias con frótis directos. Es una complicación de una terapéutica antibiótica prolongada intensa. También se ha visto como complicación de los pacientes emaciados con deficiencias de vitamina B.

Las fisuras horizontales de la lengua son lesiones congénitas sin significado clínico, pero las fisuras longitudinales son características de la sífilis
Las ulceras benignas de la lengua provienen de traumatismos, irritacion por dientes enfermos o mellados, dentaduras mal adaptadas e inflamadas, son dolorosas y superficiales.
La tuberculosis produce una lesión superficial muy dolorosa de la lengua. Casi invariablemente se acompaña de tuberculosis pulmonar activa.

Lesiones benignas de labios dientes y mucosa
Herpes labial
Es una infección de los labios, la boca o las encías debido al virus del herpes simple. Esta infección lleva al desarrollo de ampollas pequeñas y dolorosas comúnmente llamadas calenturas o herpes febril.

Esta lesión aguda, de curso rápido, aparece en forma de una placa dolorosa elevada de color rojo, redondeada con costras a nivel de la mucosa del labio. Su breve duracion y la ausencia de ulceración e induración le caracterizan como herpes labial común.

Chancros.
Infección bacteriana causada por un organismo llamado Haemophilus ducreyi. Es una lesión primaria de la sífilis, indolora, que aparece en el lugar de entrada de la infección. Se presenta como una pápula pequeña o como una erosión, y se convierte en una lesión redondeada u oval, endurecida y ligeramente elevada con una superficie erosionada que exuda un líquido seroso y da lugar a una linfadenopatía regional firme no dolorosa y sin fluctuación (bubo) que cura sin dejar señales.





Epulis.

Se trata de tumor nodular característico, de color pardo rojizo que aparece en la parte externa del borde alveolar. Es de consistencia firme, no doloroso a la palpación. Generalmente de origen inflamatorio, en ocasiones puede constituir una verdadera neoplasia.

Dientes de Hutchinson
Son manifestaciones de la sífilis congénita. Los incisivos superiores centrales están afectados, la base de cada diente es ancha y la superficie es estrecha y dentada.








Quistes epiteliales
Suelen observarse en el suelo de la boca. Los quistes se deben palpar con todo cuidado utilizando las dos manos. Los quistes del conducto tirogloso hacen prominencia en el suelo de la boca y se identifican por su extensión hacia abajo, en dirección del cuello.








Lesiones de la orofaringe
Amígdalas
La simple presencia de una amígdala aumentada de volumen no es anormal. Las criptas amigdalinas pueden contener detritus, pero ello por si solo carece de significación.


Amigdalitis aguda
Tiene varias formas de repetición: hipertrofia de amígdalas palatinas, amigdalitis de repetición, y amigdalitis caseosa. Los gérmenes se acantonan en las criptas y dan lugar a la clínica:

Anorexia
Astenia
Disfagia discreta
Febrícula
Ganglios que no disminuyen hasta un tamaño normal
Posible infección a distancia
Amigdalitis crónica
Además de mal sabor de boca y alteraciones del gusto, la amigdalitis crónica supone un foco de infección que puede causar inapetencia, somnolencia y accesos de fiebre ocasional a lo largo de toda la vida. Las alas de la nariz se ven ensanchadas y el paciente tiende a tener la boca abierta. Las crisis repetidas de amigdalitis agudas ocasionan cicatriz y deformación de las amígdalas, muchas veces con acumulación de detritus y exudados en las criptas. Si hay infección amígdala crónica intensa, los ganglios cervicales locales están aumentados de volumen y palpables.



Abscesos periamigdalinos.

En estos el paciente tiene dificultad para abrir la boca La zona amigdalar esta intensamente edematosa e hinchada. La amígdala afectada parece desplazada hacia el lado opuesto.





Tuberculosis amigdalar
Las amígdalas son asiento primario de tuberculosis cervical. Puede haber pocos cambios en el aspecto de la amígdala o hallarse deformada o hipertrofiada. Los linfomas pueden invadir la amígdala, produciendo una hipertrofia de superficie lisa.




Absceso retrofaríngeo
El paciente suele ser niño. Aparece como una protrusión de la pared faríngea posterior. Debe palparse cualquier proceso inflamatorio sospechoso de esta zona. Las neoplasias retro faríngeas suelen producir inflamación a este nivel.





Tumor de Warthin.
Es una lesión benigna de la parótida. Es de crecimiento lento, rara vez llega a ser mayor de 1 a 2 centímetros, y suele poder moverse libremente . Las áreas quísticas pueden llegar a adherirse a la piel.. Puede curarse por escisión local veces no puede distinguirse de un tumor mixto, pero la fijeza y la dureza petrea indican carcinoma. La parálisis del séptimo par constituye excelente signo diagnostico, ya que se observa en el cáncer y es rara en los tumores pleomorfosamplia y no requiere parotidectomía superficial.





Cáncer de la parótida



Glándula submaxilarEstá situada en la parte lateral de la región suprahioidea. Se halla contenida en una celda osteofibrosa. En su origen está en relación por dentro con el hiogloso y por fuera con el milohioideo.
Es una glándula mixta, constituida por acinos serosos como la glándula parótida y acinos mucosos separados por tejido conjuntivo. Su secreción se vierte por conductos excretores. Está irrigada por las arteriasprocedentes del facial y de la submentoniana, donde desembocan también las venas.
Está formada por una gran porción superficial y por una porción profunda más pequeña. Está protegida o recubierta por el compartimento submaxilar.
El conducto submaxilar (de Wharton) tiene una longitud aproximada de 5 cm, y su pared es mucho más delgada que la del conducto parotideo. Se forma en la zona media de la porción profunda de la glándula, se introduce entre la glandula sublingual y el geniogloso, y desemboca en el suelo de la boca a través de un orificio estrecho situado en el vértice de la papila sublingual que está localizada lateralmente al frenillo de lalengua.
SI se seca el suelo de la boca con una torunda de algodón y se estimula la lengua con un poco de sumo de limón, puede verse salir saliva por el conducto. Si no se logra dicha salida por este medio indica obstrucción. Esa glándula , cuando esta aumentada de tamaño es fácil de delimitar por palpación.


Cuello Los exámenes de cabeza y cuello deben completarse siempre dada la frecuencia con la que alguitas lesiones de cabeza, cara o cavidad bucal afectan a los ganglios linfáticos cervicales.
Se requiere destreza para examinar el cuello, pues músculos, capas aponeuróticas, y estructuras cartilaginosas u oseas enmascaran signos físicos, y ellos mismos resultan de confundir procesos patológicos.
Inspección
Se empieza a examinar el cuello en busca de asimetría, hinchazón, pulsaciones, fistulas o limitaciones de movimientos. Si se extiende el cuello, sometiendo así a tensión el musculo esternocleidomastoideo, el hueso hioides con sus hastas mayores, el cartílago tiroides, la tráquea, la clavícula y las pulsaciones del bulbo carotideo y tercera porción de la arteria subclavia.




Palpación

La palpación se lleva a cabo desde el frente o desde atrás del paciente, lo importante es que ambos lados deben ser palpados y comparados. La cabeza debe inclinarse levemente hacia delante para relajar los tejidos blandos.






La palpación en busca de adenopatías debe ser sistemática y se recomienda seguir un orden: desde los linfonodos submentonianos hacia los submandibulares, luego a lo largo de esternocleidomastoideo hasta el espacio supraclavicular, y desde ahí siguiendo el curso del nervio accesorio terminando en los grupos retroauricular y preauricular.

La palpación de la glándula tiroides se realiza desde atrás del enfermo, con los pulgares afirmados debajo de la nuca y los dedos restantes sobre la región tiroidea en la cara anterior del cuello. Es útil ubicar la posición del cartílago cricoides, ya que inmediatamente bajo él se encuentra el istmo tiroideo. En esta posición se indica al enfermo que degluta mientras se intenta delimitar los lóbulos tiroideos. La glándula asciende con los movimientos deglutorios.

Finalmente debe palparse la tráquea, evaluar su movilidad en sentido lateral y su ubicación en la línea media (descartar desplazamientos).

Auscultación Puede llevarse a cabo la auscultación cuidadosa sobre las arterias subclavias, carótida externa y carótida interna. El soplo escuchado tanto sobre la arteria subclavia como sobre la carótida primitiva suele ser transmitido desde una válvula aortica estenótica. El soplo aislado sobre una sola arteria indica estenosis localizada.


Ganglios linfáticos cervicales
Si el examinador encuentra un ganglio o un grupo de ganglios cervicales aumentados de volumen se deben tener en cuenta las siguientes incógnitas.
1 .¿Se trata de un ganglio linfático infartado o es una estructura normal.?
Son fuentes comunes de error las hastas mayores de los huesos hioides y la placa arterioescleróticas a nivel de la bifurcación de la carótida primitiva; pueden excluirse fácilmente con experiencia y cuidado.
2 .¿Cuales son las características físicas del ganglio o ganglios en cuestión?
El volumen, la consistencia, y los limites de los ganglios linfáticos tienen hipertrofiados tienen gran importancia diagnostica.
Mediante estos podemos diagnosticar diversas enfermedades como: un cáncer metastásico , la enfermedad de Hodking, la tuberculosis, infecciones piógenas agudas, fluctuación pediculosis, entre otras.
3. ¿Donde se halla la lesión primaria?
Esta es muy importante porque nos permite sospechar el probable origen primario.
4.¿ Que debe hacerse si no se descubre el foco primario?
La nasofaringe y los senos nasales deben examinarse mediante endoscopia, examen con espejo y radiografía. Una pequeña neoplasia asintomática de estas regiones puede producir amplias metástasis cervicales.
Nos permite sospechar también el origen primario. Pueden inculpar al tiroides incluso cuando parece normal a la palpación. Si la biopsia indica cáncer metastásico , pero no indica su origen, está indicado proceder a exámenes repetidos de todos los posibles focos de origen.
Glándulas tiroides


El tiroides normal suele ser palpable, en personas delgadas, a cada lado de la tráquea, como masa firme y lisa que se eleva con los movimientos de deglución;
en personas obesas o de cuello corto quizás no se perciba.
Cuando se observa un aumento de de volumen del tiroides, hay que determinar su forma, extensión, consistencia y vascularización. El examinador debe colocarse detrás del paciente y hace lo posible para identificar la tráquea en busca de un posible desplazamiento de la misma, luego delinea el tiroides con los dedos y, cuando se deglute hace que la glándula se deslice entre los dedos para comparar los dos lados.
Se buscaran anormalidades y thrilles. Si no se puede percibir el polo inferior, probablemente sea retrosternal . La percusión de la zona de matidez retrosternal puede confirmar fácilmente esta impresión.
El examinador se coloca ahora en frente del paciente. Puede palpar los vasos del polo superior y estimar el grado de vascularización colocando el pulgar debajo del borde anterior y otro dedo detrás del borde posterior del musculo esternocleidomastoideo. Puede ponerse el lóbulo de relieve y estimarse su superficie y consistencia desplazando la tráquea hacia un lado mediante el pulgar de la otra mano.

Lesiones del tiroideEl bocio es el aumento de tamaño de la glandulas tiroides. Se traduce externamente por una tumoración en la parte antero-inferior del cuello justo debajo de la faringe. Existen varios tipos desde el punto de vista morfológico: bocio difuso, uninodular o multinodular. Según su tamaño se divide en los siguientes estados:

Estado 1: detectable a la palpación.
Estado 2: bocio palpable y visible con el cuello en hiperextensión.
Estado 3: visible con el cuello en posición normal.
Estado 4: bocio visible a distancia.El bocio puede asociarse a una función tiroidea normal (bocio normofuncionante), hipofunción, hiperfunción. Si el examen se efectúa en la forma descrita, resulta relativamente fácil descubrir la hinchazón quística difusa de un bocio coloide, el nódulo aislado duro de un adenoma solitario, la glándula nodular irregular de un bocio adenomatoso , y la hipertrofia vascular blanda de la enfermedad de Graves- Basedow clásica.






Hipertiroidismo
Los signos del hipertiroidismo pueden ser tan manifiestos que resultan evidentes, o hallarse tan enmascarados que escapen a la atención de quienes no sean clínicos muy experimentados. El signo principal del hipertiroidismo es el aumento de vascularización. Son clásicos el thirill palpable y el soplo audible.
La exoftalmia es un signo eventual. Generalmente bilateral, puede ser monolateral . Los diversos signos especiales asociados con exoftalmos dependen de la posición anormal del globo ocular, pero no indica hipertiroidismo.






Signos oculares asociados con exoftalmos
1caida del parpad (signo de Von Graefe)
2falta de convergencia (signo de Moebius)
3Retraccion del parpado superior (signo de Stellwag)
4falta de funcionamiento de la frente (signo de Joffroy)


Hipertiroidismo latente.
El hipertiroidismo ligero puede simular enfermedades cardiacas, anemias, neurastenia y tuberculosis. De hecho, en todos los casos de cardiopatías o tuberculosis hay que excluir específicamente el hipertiroidismo como trastorno concomitante potencial.
Tiroiditis.
Por examen físico pueden reconocerse cuatro tipos diferentes:
Tiroiditis aguda
Se debe a la infección de la glándula por un germen, que ocasiona un absceso en la zona de la glándula. Esta puede ser secundaria a una inflamación de boca, amígdalas o nódulos linfáticos cervicales. Las manifestaciones son fiebre, hipersensibilidad sobre la glándula y, raramente supuración. Pueden afectar las tiroides tuberculosis o infección por hongos.




Tiroiditis subaguda no especifica
Se observa más frecuente en mujeres. El principio es súbito, con dolor en garganta, cuello y glándulas tiroides. La temperatura puede elevarse hasta 40 ó 50 grados. Esta aumentada de volumen, dura y muy dolorosa a la o palpación, sobre todo en las primeras etapas.



Bocio de Riedel.
El comienzo es insidioso; sus primeros síntomas son compresión traqueal progresiva. La glándula esta sustituida por tejido doloroso, denso y duro, que suele causar hipertrofia irregular. Puede requerirse operación para aliviar la compresión traqueal y excluir el cáncer.





Bocio de Hashimoto

Es una hinchazón (inflamación) de la glándula tiroides que frecuentemente ocasiona disminución en la función tiroidea (hipotiroidismo).
La tiroiditis crónica o enfermedad de Hashimoto es un trastorno de la glándula tiroides común que puede ocurrir a cualquier edad, pero que se observa con mayor frecuencia en mujeres de mediana edad. Esta enfermedad es ocasionada por una reacción del sistema inmunitario contra la glándula tiroides.
La enfermedad comienza lentamente y pueden pasar meses o incluso años para detectarla. La tiroiditis crónica es más común en mujeres y en personas con antecedentes familiares de enfermedad de la tiroides. Afecta entre el 0.1 y el 5% de todos los adultos en los países del hemisferio occidental.
La enfermedad de Hashimoto en raras ocasiones puede estar asociada con otros trastornos endocrinos ocasionados por el sistema inmunitario. Esta enfermedad puede presentarse con insuficiencia suprarrenal y diabetes tipo 1. En estos casos, la afección se denomina síndrome autoinmunitario poliglandular tipo 2 (PGAII, por sus siglas en inglés).
Con menor frecuencia, la enfermedad de Hashimoto se presenta como parte de una afección llamada síndrome autoinmunitario poliglandular tipo 1 (PGA I), junto con:

Insuficiencia suprarrenal Infecciones micóticas de la boca y las uñas
Hipoparatiroidismo
El padecimiento responde a la administración de hormonas tiroideas , pero puede requerir operación.

Cáncer de tiroides

Agrupa a un pequeño número de tumores malignos de la glándula tiroides, que es la malignidad más común del sistema endocrino. Por lo general, los tumores malignos de la tiroides tienen su origen en el epitelio folicular de la glándula y son clasificados de acuerdo a sus características histológicas.
Los tumores diferenciados, como el carcinoma papilar o el carcinoma folicular, generalmente tienen buen pronóstico y son curables en casi todos los casos si son detectados en etapas tempranas.
Los tumores no diferenciados, como es el carcinoma anaplásico el cual tiende a cursar con un peor pronóstico, tiene muy poca respuesta al tratamiento y tiene un comportamiento muy agresivo.


El carcinoma papilar es de crecimiento lento. Puede afectar nódulos regionales, pero las metástasis distantes son raras.
El carcinoma folicular puede parecer se al carcinoma papilar en la exploración física, pero tiende a dar metástasis por vía sanguínea.
El carcinoma medular Las metástasis a nódulos linfáticos son frecuentes y a menuda extensas. Sin embargo es común la supervivencia a largo plazo después de tiroidectomía radical y disección en cuello. Puede haber feocromacitoma acompañante e hiperparatiroidismo(síndrome de sipple).
Lesiones congénitas
Conocer la derivación embriológica de los quistes y senos del cuello ayuda considerablemente a identificarlos.
Quistes del conducto tiroglosos
Es un quiste fibroso que se forma de manera persistente en el conducto tirogloso usualmente el medio del cuello, doloroso a la palpación, en especial si llega a infectarse. Puede causar dificultades para respirar, para tragar y malestar abdominal, especialmente si la masa se torna grande.
Las ubicaciones más frecuentes del quiste tirogloso es la línea media o levemente a un lado de la línea media, entre el istmo de la glándula tiroides y el hueso hioides o justo por encima del hioides. Un quiste tirogloso puede desarrollarse en cualquier punto a lo largo del conducto tirogloso, aunque los quistes en la lengua o el piso de la boca son poco frecuentes. Un quiste en el conducto tirogloso puede moverse hacia arriba al protruir la lengua.
Los quistes tiroglosos están asociados a un aumentado riesgo de tejido tiroideo ectópico. Ocasionalmente un tiroide lingual puede verse en la lengua como una masa aplanada de forma de fresa en la base de la lengua.
Raramente, la persistencia del conducto tirogloso puede volversemaligno, recibiendo el nombre de carcinoma del conducto tirogloso.

Quistes y fistulas de origen branquial
Estos siempre están localizados por delante del musculo esternocleidomastoideo, aproximadamente a nivel de la bifurcación de carotidea. Su oposición se establece uniendo el tercio superior con el tercio medio del borde anterior del musculo esternocleidomastoideo.
Es común la infección secundaria y pueden aparecer los signos de la inflamación con aumento brusco del volumen del tumor. En ocasiones el único signo de esta anomalía congénita es una pequeña fistula.




INFECCIONES DE CABEZA Y CUELLO


Absceso alveolar agudo
La infección originada en la raíz de un diente puede difundirse al carrillo o al suelo de la boca, produciendo hinchazón masiva con enrojecimiento, edema y tensión dolorosa de los maxilares superior e inferior. El paciente difícilmente abra la boca.
La infección puede abrirse paso a través del suelo de la boca, produciendo infección cervical profunda. El absceso debe evacuarse a través de una incisión a lo largo del borde gingival. El diente enfermo debe extraerse.




Angina de Vincent
La angina de Vincent o gingivitis ulcerativa/ulcerosa necrotizante es una infección polimicrobial de las encías y las papilas interdentales, que produce inflamación, sangramiento y tejido ulceroso y necrótico acompañado por fiebre, amigdalitis y halitosis . El término, también conocido como angina de Plaut-Vincent recibe el nombre de boca de trinchera probablemente por razón de los soldados de la Primera Guerra Mundial quienes frecuentemente padecían del trastorno. Los ganglios linfáticos pueden estar inflamados, pero raramente supuran. Aparece en el adulto joven antes de los años.
Infecciones del labio superior
El tejido laxo del labio superior es importante asiento de infección. La expresión o el traumatismo inferidos a un furúnculo a este nivel pueden causar celulitis fulminante.






Ántrax
El ántrax es una infección cutánea por estafilococos formada por una agrupación de furúnculos con extensión de la infección al tejido subcutáneo. Las lesiones presentan supuración profunda, son de lenta curación y producen cicatrices. Es muy frecuente en la nuca.

Abscesos y celulitis cervicales profunda.


Las infecciones de la cavidad bucal pueden entrar en el cuello hasta la aponeurosis cervical. La lesión suele quedar limitada a un lado del cuello y se caracteriza por edema pardo y enrojecimiento superficie.
Angina de Ludwig.

Se trata de una forma particular de infección profunda que afecta el suelo de la boca, las regiones submaxilares y los tejidos profundos del cuello a este nivel aproximadamente del hueso hioides. En contraste con el absceso cervical profundo corriente, esta lesión suele ser bilateral, difunde rápidamente y produce amplia induración con inflamación del suelo de la boca.

          Estudios Muy Importantes Sobre las Vacunas: 400 Artículos Científicos Importantes que Todo Padre de Familia y Pediatra Debe Conocer   

Por el Dr. Mercola

Las vacunas: ¿Son seguras? ¿Son eficaces? Neil Z. Miller,1 un periodista de investigación médica y director de Thinktwice Global Vaccine Institute, nos ayudará a responder esas preguntas.

Miller ha investigado las vacunas durante tres décadas y ha escrito varios libros sobre este tema, incluyendo "Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?", "Vaccine Safety Manual for Concerned Families and Health Practitioners" y su libro más reciente "Miller's Review of Critical Vaccine Studies: 400 Important Scientific Papers Summarized for Parents and Researchers".

El libro "Miller´s Review publicado en el 2016, es un magnífico trabajo. En este libro, Miller analiza la preocupación sobre la seguridad y eficacia de las vacunas que se planteó a partir de la revisión de 400 estudios publicados.

El libro no analiza los estudios que apoyan la vacunación (que por cierto, la gran mayoría de estos estudios fueron financiados por la industria y el gobierno), ya que estos estudios se encuentran disponibles en el sitio web de los CDC.

"Comencé cuando nacieron mis hijos… hace más de 30 años… Cuando mi esposa estaba embarazada, sentí que tenía que hacer la debida diligencia sobre las vacunas. Tenía que ser honesto. Antes de empezar a investigar sobre las vacunas, mi esposa y yo sabíamos intuitivamente que no íbamos a vacunar a nuestros hijos.

Cuando doy conferencias, muchas veces le digo a las personas: ¿Cómo esperan que su hijo esté sano si le inyectan sustancias tóxicas? Lo sabía intuitivamente… sin embargo, sentí una obligación de hacer mi debida diligencia e investigar", dice Miller.

"La cosa es que cuando hago algo, lo hago bien… estaba haciendo mi investigación en las bibliotecas médicas. Estaba recolectando toda la información y comencé a recopilar y coordinar… Las personas se enteraron de lo que estaba haciendo.

Desde aquel entonces ya me preguntaban sobre las vacunas. Así que organicé en un folleto y comencé a compartir la información con las personas. Todo empezó con ese primer folleto".

No Se Crea el Argumento de que "No Existe Evidencia"

El libro titulado "Miller´s Review" se creó en respuesta al argumento tan común de que "no existen estudios que demuestren que las vacunas no son seguras o que son ineficaces".

"Escucho esto muy a menudo", dice Miller. "Los padres vienen a mi todo el tiempo y me dicen, "mi médico me dijo que las vacunas son seguras y que no existen estudios que comprueben los contrario". Llevo 30 años investigando. Conozco literalmente miles de estudios que lo documentan [las preocupaciones]. Todos mis libros documentan esos estudios".

"Miller´s Review" es el único en resumir 400 estudios en viñetas con citas directas de cada estudio – con un estudio por página – además de las citas para que pueda buscar y leer el estudio completo en caso de que decida hacerlo.

Todos estos estudios están publicados en las revistas arbitradas e indexadas por la Biblioteca Nacional de Medicina.

"Todos son estudios válidos realizados por investigadores calificados que han sido publicados en revistas como The Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine, entre otras revistas populares (y en algunas revistas pequeñas, sin embargo, siguen siendo estudios revisados por pares) que demuestran que las vacunas tienen problemas como: problemas de seguridad y de eficacia.

Y todos estos estudios ya se encuentran en un solo lugar para que las personas, como los médicos, puedan obtener esta información de una forma práctica.

Este libro ha sido muy eficaz con los médicos. He escuchado por los padres de familia que cuando sus médicos están indecisos o a favor de las vacunas y leen este libro, dejan de presionarlos para que vacunen a sus hijos.

Actualmente, los médicos están respetando la decisión de los padres de no vacunar o de buscar algún tipo de programa de vacunación alternativo…

Estoy a punto de tener acceso sin censura y sin restricciones a toda la información disponible que hay sobre las vacunas. No sólo el tipo de información que su médico quiere que sepa.

No sólo el tipo de información que las compañías farmacéuticas quieren que sepa y no sólo el tipo de información que los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC por sus siglas en inglés) le dan a los médicos para que la compartan con sus pacientes.

Quiero que los padres tengan toda la libertad de tomar la decisión de si quieren vacunar a sus hijos o no… Se trata de una cuestión de derechos humanos. Se trata de un aspecto obligatorio en las vacunas. Creo que todas las vacunas son problemáticos. Creo esto no sólo por intuición, sino basado en la evidencia que he encontrado a lo largo de los años".

Tomar Decisiones Desinformadas Es Parte del Problema

Finalmente, cada padre de familia tendrá el derecho de tomar la decisión de si quiere vacunar o no. El problema es que casi todo el tiempo es una decisión desinformada.

Uno de los temas de los que habla en sus libros anteriores es que ha habido una campaña deliberada de desinformación que tiene como objetivo hacer creer que las vacunas son más eficaces de lo que realmente son.

Por ejemplo, los datos de incidencia de enfermedades se utilizan para sugerir que las vacunas han reducido dramáticamente la incidencia de una enfermedad dada, cuando de hecho la tasa de esa enfermedad ya había disminuido un 90 %, o más en algunos casos, antes de que esa vacuna estuviera disponible.

El sarampión ha sido un problema en los países en desarrollo, en gran parte debido a la desnutrición, la deficiencia de vitamina A, la falta de agua limpia, la higiene y el acceso rápido a la atención médica. A medida que se traten estos problemas, la mortalidad a causa del sarampión disminuirá por sí sola.

La vitamina A parece particularmente importante y los estudios patrocinados por la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) han confirmado que las altas dosis de suplementos de vitamina A protegen a los niños de las complicaciones y la muerte relacionada con la enfermedad.

"La vacuna contra el sarampión se introdujo en los Estados Unidos en 1963, sin embargo, fue a finales de la década de 1950 cuando se redujo drásticamente la tasa de mortalidad del sarampión.

Esto debido a que la población había desarrollado una protección en contra de los daños más peligrosos de la enfermedad. Esto también sucede con muchas otras enfermedades diferentes.

En mi libro, hay muchos tipos de gráficas e ilustraciones diferentes para ayudar a los lectores a entender los puntos principales… Muchas de estas gráficas demuestran que las tasas de muchas de estas enfermedades se redujeron significativamente por sí solas, mucho antes de la introducción de las vacunas.

La escarlatina, por ejemplo. ¿A dónde se fue la escarlatina? ¿Por qué ya no hemos visto casos de escarlatina si no tenemos vacunaciones masivas para esta enfermedad? Ese es un punto importante que hay que hacer".

Muchas Enfermedades Infantiles Protegen Contra el Cáncer

Otro punto importante es que existen docenas de estudios que demuestran que contraer ciertas enfermedades infantiles en realidad lo protege de varios tipos de cáncer en un futuro – desde melanoma hasta leucemia.

Es importante entender que cuando tiene una infección naturalmente adquirida, en realidad está ejercitando a su sistema inmunológico para que en el proceso desarrolle una auténtica inmunidad de por vida, que es algo completamente diferente al tipo de inmunidad artificial o temporal que obtiene de las vacunas.

Una de las razones de esto es porque las vacunas estimulan una parte completamente diferente de su sistema inmunológico, que la parte que se estimula al combatir una infección naturalmente adquirida. Incluso existe evidencia que sugiere que las enfermedades infantiles ayudan a protegerlo de sufrir futuras enfermedades cardíacas.

"Un estudio japonés… analizó a más de 100 000 hombres y mujeres de edad avanzada. Investigaron su historial de enfermedades infantiles comunes. ¿Padecieron de varicela, rubéola, sarampión, paperas?

Y encontraron que padecer esas enfermedades en la infancia los protegió de las enfermedades cardíacas.

Está protegido contra ataques cardíacos y varios tipos de enfermedad arteriosclerótica de los sistemas arteriales.

Protege el sistema arterial, así que padecer estas enfermedades en la infancia no sólo lo protege del cáncer, sino también de las enfermedades cardíacas, ataques cardíacos y derrames cerebrales… Existen diferentes teorías sobre por qué sucede esto. Pero lo importante es que, estudio tras estudio, confirma que esto es cierto".

Las Vacunas Crean Mutaciones Problemáticas

Otro problema relacionado con las vacunas que muchas personas desconocen por completo es el hecho de que las vacunas provocan mutaciones en los microorganismos que portan la enfermedad, de forma muy similar en la que los antibióticos provocan la mutación de las bacterias.

Por ejemplo, la vacuna contra la difteria, tétano y tos ferina (DTaP), ha provocado que el microorganismo pertussis, Bordetella pertussis mute y evada la vacuna. Lo mismo sucedió con la vacuna antineumocócica y la vacuna contra la influenza Haemophilus tipo B.

"Por ejemplo, están encontrando que cuando se administra una vacuna que ataca ciertas cepas de la enfermedad en la que en realidad múltiples cepas están causando la enfermedad, la vacuna es bastante eficaz en reducir la incidencia de la enfermedad de esa cepa en particular. Pero lo que sucede es que otras cepas entran y toman su lugar… Regresan más fuertes que antes.

Eso fue lo que sucedió con Prevnar, una vacuna contra el neumococo, la enfermedad neumocócica.

Todos los bebés que siguieron el programa estándar de inmunización de los CDC, recibieron la vacuna neumocócica a los 2, 4 y 6 meses de edad. Esa vacuna sólo atacaba a siete cepas. El neumococo tiene 90 cepas diferentes capaces de causar la enfermedad neumocócica.

Las vacunas fueron bastante eficaces en reducir la cantidad de la enfermedad causada por las cepas neumocócicas que atacaba la vacuna.

Pero lo que sucedió en tan sólo unos pocos años fue que las otras cepas se volvieron más prevalentes… tomaron el lugar de las cepas originales y se volvieron más virulentas.

En el 2010 sacaron otra vacuna… para sustituir la vacuna que ya había perdido su eficacia debido a lo que acabo de explicar.

La vacuna nueva incluyó las siete cepas originales más seis cepas adicionales, es decir las cepas en aquel momento estaban provocando la enfermedad neumocócica. Después de dos años de la introducción de esa vacunas, las cepas ya habían mutado…"

Lamentablemente, los padres han sido culpados y acosados por muchas de las fallas de estas vacunas. Se les dice a los padres que si no vacuna a sus hijos, serán responsables de propagar la enfermedad. Esa es la idea que están promoviendo los CDC, la industria médica y la industria farmacéutica.

Sin embargo, si lee los estudios, sabrá lo que saben los científicos – que el problema real es la adaptación evolutiva.

La Dra. Meryl Nass habló sobre este tema en una entrevista realizada en el 2013. Los microorganismos se adaptan. "Lo que sucedió con la tos ferina es que el microorganismo de la tos ferina ha cambiado. No sólo se volvió más virulento, sino que se ha vuelto más común", explica Miller. "Ha evadido la vacuna".

La Inmunidad Colectiva No Se Logra A Través de Inmunizaciones

Otro argumento para la vacunación masiva es lograr una inmunidad colectiva. Miller cree, y estoy de acuerdo con él, que la inmunidad colectiva jamás se logrará a través de la vacunación debido a que las altas tasas de vacunación fomentan la evolución de agentes causantes de enfermedades más graves.

En una población vacunada, la virulencia aumenta debido a la presión selectiva, ya que el patógeno se fortalece y adapta en su lucha por sobrevivir a la vacuna.

Mientras tanto, en una población no vacunada, el entorno promueve una menor virulencia, ya que el patógeno no quiere matar a su huésped. Un patógeno acertado es aquel capaz de infectar a muchos huéspedes sin matarlos, porque cuando el huésped muere, el patógeno pierde el entorno del que depende su propia supervivencia.

Sin embargo, una vez que el organismo de la enfermedad muta y se vuelve más virulento entre la población vacunada, aumenta su contagio no sólo entre la población vacunada, sino también entre la población no vacunada, que ahora se enfrentará a un enemigo mucho más virulento de lo normal.

"En términos de inmunidad colectiva, no sólo tiene… esta presión selectiva que le impide alcanzar la inmunidad colectiva (porque los microorganismos siempre están tratando de evadir la vacuna), sino que la vacuna contra la tos ferina sólo tiene un 60 % de eficacia. Eso con las mejores estimaciones y sólo por un par de años.

Los estudios demuestran que incluso después de tres, cuatro o cinco años, casi ya no tiene ningún tipo de eficacia, casi regresa al periodo previo a la vacuna.

¿Cómo espera tener una inmunidad colectiva con una vacuna que sólo tiene un 60 % de eficacia? Pueden vacunar al 100 % de la población y ni así alcanzarían la inmunidad colectiva con una vacuna que tan sólo tiene un 60 % de eficacia.

Durante muchos años las vacunas contra la influenza tienen un 0 % de eficacia porque no se adaptan al virus circulante. En los mejores años sólo se obtiene el 30, 40 o 50 % de eficacia".

Los Estudios Denuestan que las Vacunas Aumentan la Mortalidad Infantil

Unos de los principios de la medicina convencional es que si se vacuna a toda una población, todos estarán más sanos. Habrá menos enfermedades. Pero cuando comparamos las tasas de vacunación y las estadísticas de salud, nos damos cuenta que sucede todo lo contrario. Esta es parte de la información más convincente en el libro de Miller.

Por ejemplo, al comparar las tasas de vacunación de 34 países desarrollados se reveló una correlación significativa entre las tasas de mortalidad infantil y el número de dosis de vacunas que reciben los bebés. Los Estados Unidos es el país que administra más vacunas y el que tiene la mayor tasa de mortalidad infantil. Puede leer este estudio aquí.2

"En realidad, soy el autor principal de ese estudio. Mi coautor fue Gary Goldman Ph.D., quien trabajo para los CDC durante siete años. Renunció cuando se enteró que los CDC no permitían que se dijeran las cosas negativas.

Goldman encontró problemas con la vacuna contra la varicela y quería publicar los datos. Los DCD dijeron, "no vamos a permitir que hagas eso", fue entonces cuando Goldman renunció…

Goldman y yo hicimos dos estudios revisados por pares… Los niños en los Estados Unidos están obligados – si siguen el programa de inmunización de los CDC – a recibir el mayor número de vacunas en comparación con cualquier otro país desarrollado, en realidad son los niños que más vacunas reciben en todo el mundo. Veintiséis vacunas. Otros países desarrollados requieren de menos.

Algunos países sólo requieren de 12 vacunas – Suiza, Islandia, Suecia y otros países europeos – sin embargo tenemos las mayores tasas de mortalidad infantil. Eso es lo en lo que se enfocó nuestro estudio. Las vacunas son promovidas como salvavidas. Se administran a los niños para protegerlos de morir a causa de enfermedades infecciosas.

Reunimos todos los programas de vacunación de los 34 países desarrollados y encontramos que los Estados Unidos tenía el puesto número 34 en la peor tasa de mortalidad infantil… Tenía la peor tasa.

Treinta y tres países del mundo desarrollado tuvieron mejores tasas de mortalidad infantil. Realizamos el estudio y encontramos que muchas personas encontrarían una relación contradictoria.

Encontramos una relación estadísticamente significativa. Hubo una correlación directa entre el número de vacunas que requería cada país para sus niños y la tasa de mortalidad infantil. Mientras más vacunas requiere un país, peor es la tasa de mortalidad infantil".

¿Por Qué Esto No es una Noticia de Primera Plana?

Muchas personas ingenuas creen que si todo esto fuera cierto, si las vacunas realmente provocaran más daños que beneficios, entonces sería una noticia de primera plana.

La razón por la que rara vez escucha algo sobre este tipo de estudios se debe a que la industria de las vacunas manipula toda la información que se difunde públicamente.

La complicidad entre las agencias reguladoras federales, el gobierno y la industria es uno de los muchos obstáculos que impiden que este tipo de información se dé a conocer.

Hay personas como la Dra. Julie Gerberding, que dirigió los CDC y estuvo a cargo de las recomendaciones para las enfermedades infecciosas durante siete años antes de volverse presidente de Merck Vaccines, uno de los principales fabricantes de vacunas del mundo.

Eso es sólo una de las muchas docenas de ejemplos de conflictos de intereses, lo que a su vez ha llevado a corromper la verdadera medicina basada en la ciencia.

"Tenemos un grave problema en donde los mejores científicos admiten que descartan puntos importantes de los estudios que han sido influenciados por las personas que financian sus estudios hasta el punto de que algunas veces no publican el estudio debido a que no se obtiene los resultados que querían, y así sucesivamente", dice Miller.

"Tenemos un grave problema con la industria farmacéutica que controla qué estudios se publican. También tenemos un grave problema porque las compañías farmacéuticas están controlando la información que se publica en los principales medios de comunicación.

Los medios de comunicación más populares obtienen aproximadamente el 70 % de sus ingresos de los anuncios farmacéuticos.

Por lo que no publicarán o promoverán algo negativo sobre las vacunas, incluso en sus noticieros, porque eso podría comprometer su potencial para seguir obteniendo estos millones de dólares que les dan las compañías farmacéuticas cada año".

Pero el mayor y más grave problema al que nos enfrentamos actualmente es el esfuerzo coordinado para obligar a las personas a vacunarse y eliminar las exenciones por creencias personales.

Por ejemplo, si quiere ir a la escuela en California, debe tener todas las vacunas. No se permiten exenciones, lo cual es una violación de los derechos humanos.

Según un Estudio, Administrar Simultáneamente Múltiples Vacunas Es Extremadamente Arriesgado

El segundo estudio3 publicado por Miller y Goldman analizó casi 40 000 reportes de bebés que sufrieron reacciones adversas después de las vacunas.

Aquí, encontraron que los bebés que recibieron el mayor número de vacunas tuvieron mayor probabilidad de ser hospitalizados en comparación con los que recibieron un menor número de vacunas.

Vale la pena señalar que estos datos se obtuvieron de la base de datos del sistema para reportar reacciones adversas a las vacunas (VAERS), un sistema de reportes pasivo y que las investigaciones han confirmado que los sistemas de reportes pasivos presentan información por debajo de la realidad en un 50 a 1.

Lo que esto significa es que cuando se encuentra un reporte en VAERS, tiene que multiplicarlo por 50 para acercarse lo más posible al número real, en promedio sólo se reporta 1 de cada 50 eventos adversos.

Los médicos tienen la obligación legal de reportar los efectos secundarios a VAERS, pero no lo hacen y no hay consecuencias por no hacerlo. Los padres también pueden hacer un reporte en la base de datos, así que invito a todos los padres de familia que, si su hijo experimenta una reacción a la vacuna, lo reporten.

En la actualidad, VAERS tiene más de 500 000 reportes de reacciones adversas a las vacunas y cada año, se añaden más de 30 000 reportes nuevos. Miller y Goldman descargaron esta base de datos y crearon un programa para extraer todos los reportes que involucraban a bebés.

En general, extrajeron 38 000 reportes de bebés que habían experimentado una reacción adversa después de recibir una o más vacunas.

Después, crearon un programa que fue capaz de determinar el número de vacunas que había recibido cada bebé antes de sufrir la reacción adversa y estratificaron los reportes por el número de vacunas (de una a ocho) que habían recibido simultáneamente los bebés antes de que se presentara la reacción.

Se enfocaron en las reacciones adversas graves que requirieron de hospitalización o provocaron la muerte. Esto es lo que encontraron:

  • Los bebés que recibieron tres vacunas simultáneamente fueron estadística y significativamente más propensos a ser hospitalizados o morir después de recibir sus vacunas, esto en comparación con los niños que recibieron dos vacunas al mismo tiempo.
  • Los bebés que recibieron cuatro vacunas simultáneamente fueron estadística y significativamente más propensos a ser hospitalizados o morir después de recibir sus vacunas, esto en comparación con los niños que recibieron tres o dos vacunas, y así sucesivamente hasta llegar a las ocho vacunas.
  • Los niños que recibieron ocho vacunas simultáneamente fueron estadística y significativamente más propensos a ser hospitalizados o morir después de recibirlas.
  • Los niños que recibieron las vacunas a una edad más temprana fueron significativamente más propensos a ser hospitalizados o morir que los niños que recibieron las vacunas a una edad más avanzada.

El Programa de Vacunación Infantil Se Basa en la Conveniencia y No en la Ciencia o la Seguridad

Como lo señaló Miller:

"La industria, los CDC y el Dr. Paul Offit nos dicen que se pueden administrar múltiples vacunas de forma simultánea. Offit dice que teóricamente podrían administrarse 10 000 vacunas a la vez, que un bebé puede estar expuesto a muchos patógenos simultáneamente sin salir herido.

El programa de vacunación de los CDC requiere que los niños reciban ocho vacunas a los 2 meses de edad, ocho vacunas a los 4 meses de edad y ocho vacunas a los seis meses de edad.

Mi pregunta para los padres es ¿Cuándo han tomado ocho medicamentos a la vez?... Si tomara ocho medicamentos a la vez, ¿cree que sería más probable tener una reacción adversa?

Los toxicólogos saben que mientras más medicamentos se tomen al mismo tiempo, mayor es el potencial de sufrir algún tipo de toxicidad aditiva o sinérgica… Lo que confirma este estudio es que administrar múltiples vacunas de forma simultánea es una práctica peligrosa.

Los CDC han elaborado un programa basado en la conveniencia. Dice: ocho vacunas a los 2 meses, ocho vacunas a los 4 meses y ocho vacunas a los 6 meses porque es conveniente. Les da miedo que los padres no regresen al pediatra una y otra vez, pero si regresan por más vacunas, mejor se las administran todas en sola vez.

Dicen, "Elaboraremos este programa basándonos en la conveniencia, no en la evidencia, no en la ciencia. No hay ciencia que respalde el programa de inmunización recomendado por los CDC. Lo hemos demostrado con nuestro estudio…

También demostramos que los niños que reciben las vacunas a una edad más temprana son estadística y significativamente más propensos a ser hospitalizados o morir en comparación con los niños que las reciben a una edad más avanzada.

Comparamos a los niños que reciben sus vacunas en los primeros seis meses edad con los niños que reciben las vacunas en los últimos seis meses de la infancia.

Le repito, es estadística y significativamente más peligroso administrar múltiples vacunas a bebés más pequeños que a niños mayores.

Esto tiene sentido porque le están dando la misma dosis a un recién nacido o bebé que puede pesar 8, 9, 10, 11 0 12 libras a los meses de edad que a un niño que pesa 15 o 17 libras… a una edad más avanzada".

Este libro es un recurso invaluable para los padres que quieren hacer la debida diligencia antes de tomar una decisión sobre si vacunar a sus hijos o no.

En su sitio web, también encontrará sus otros libros, junto con los estudios y publicaciones relacionados con las preocupaciones de seguridad y eficacia de las vacunas.

Otro recurso es el Centro Nacional de Información sobre Vacunas (NVIC). NVIC es el líder cuando se trata de educar al público sobre los esfuerzos para imponer las vacunas obligatorias y cómo preservar nuestras libertades con respecto a la salud a nivel local, estatal y federal.

Finalmente, todos deben tomar una decisión con respecto a las vacunas. La clave está en tomar una decisión informada para entender y comparar los potenciales riesgos con los beneficios. Para hacerlo, necesita tener acceso a ambos lados del debate y Miller nos ha hecho un gran favor al hacer más accesible la parte que nos habían estado ocultando.

Hey fijn dat er eens een artikeltje geschreven is over eetgewoonten uit de tropen ! Al moet ik toch even toevoegen dat we niet allen een idee kunnen vormen waar het net over gaat i.v.m. de namen van bepaalde gerechten / ingrediënten , het had beter geweest had er ook een beetje info over geschreven geweest wat dat nu juist is , bv. als wij zouden zeggen ' appelcake ' of coulis dat er dan ook bijgeschreven is dat het gaat om bij appelcake : gebak met die ingrediënten over het algemeen met appel , fruit in stukjes gesneden of in schijfjes gesneden etc . Simpelweg omdat ik zelf onlangs ook even het probleem had in de wereldwinkel om het juiste product uit te kiezen , ik kocht per ongeluk taboule :D terwijl ik de Afrikaanse ' Fufu ' nodig had ! woorden als mal pal sang ghoi zijn hier niet gekend hoor :) , gelukkig ken ik er zelf wel een aantal door een tijdje in Afrika gezeten te hebben , niet in Suriname maar ik zat in de volgende Tropen : Costa Rica , Tanzania en Panama waar ook in Tanzania veel van de door jouw beschreven voedingsgewoonten gelden :) , wij stelden het daar erg vaak met in de ochtend een ontbijt van ofwel havermout , brood , honing en met geluk een ontbijtje met eieren , dan het tweede ontbijt was vaak een gebakken banaan of iets met bananengebak dan en zoooo vaak kregen we kokosmelk mee ! in onze drinkbussen zat altijd 1 bus met het water van de kokosnoot gezoet met iets dat ik nog steeds niet weet :D , we logeerden daar steeds bij ' gastgezinnen ' om door te trekken in de Jungle , je kan dus gaan vragen aan je gids om een slaapplaats en dan gaat die bij de gewone lokale bevolking rondkijken voor de wat ' rijke ' mensen die daar een extra bed hadden of locatie om je tent op te slaan die dan in de ochtenden zorgden dat we allen een stevig ontbijt gekregen hadden , melk kan je daar vaak vergeten jammer genoeg ! Die werd vervangen door de melk van rijst of van kokosnoten en soms kregen we onze havermout'pap' met ipv een gekookte versie met melk of vervangende melk simpelweg met banaan die eronder gekookt was wat eigenlijk best wel zalig was en ik garandeer je dat de eetgewoontes daar zorgen voor een hele dag energie hoor :) , eveneens werkt de kokosnoot daar dan vaak als preventie tegen uitdroging , dat wist ik dus eerst niet tot 1 van de Afrikanen bijna wild werd als ik mijn kokoswater afstond aan een collega die mee op de expeditie was , die werd bijna zo razend gek dat ik er dan ook nog geen woord van begreep en hij bleef wijzen naar de kokosnoten in de bomen :D ROFL ! Je kan daar haast niet anders dan effectief een kokosnoot kraken en het sap dat erin zit mengen met wat rijstwater of wat dan ook , het is antibacterieel en intussen heb ik geleerd dat je bij erg warm weer gewoon geen eens dorst hebt als je dat gedronken hebt ! Het zorgt er daadwerkelijk voor dat je een beetje een 'energieboost ' krijgt waarnaast je jezelf ook nog eens beschermt tegen de hoge temperatuur waar je in feite niet aan gewend bent , dus voor de komende dagen van de zomer ? Denk eens aan tropische eet-en drinkgewoonten , ze doen het niet zonder reden hoor ! :) kraak die kokosnoot , giet dat water ( de melk ) niet weg maar neem een zeefje en een kom en giet het erover , drink in de ochtend al meteen een glas met ongeveer een derde van dat sap en je zal zelf wel ondervinden dat je beter resistent bent tegen hoge temperaturen en je verre van een hitteslag of zonneslag krijgt desondanks je in de zon nog arbeid verricht hebt :) . MUST TRY !!! p.s. : indien je het niet met water wenst te mengen ? voeg een beetje cacao toe aan het water en meng ! lekkerder kan je 't niet krijgen ! Hartelijke Groet en fijn om je blog te lezen !

Marxismo y pus

Sello conmemorativo del centenario del fallecimiento de Karl Marx, Cuba. (WRADIO.COM)

 
Él mismo lo dijo, en carta del 22 de junio de 1867 a Federico Engels (en la cual le pide algunas libras esterlinas, como de costumbre, no sin antes llamar "cerdo" al contrincante capitalista de turno): "Espero que la burguesía se acuerde de mis carbúnculos hasta el día mismo de su muerte".
Carbúnculos, forúnculos, abscesos de pus en la piel. Granos hediondos en las axilas, en las tetillas, en la ingle y el pubis, alrededor de los genitales (pene y escroto) y en la región perianal. Él mismo así lo confiesa en varias cartas privadas, las que el siglo XXI ha ido haciendo públicas para horror del marxismo cultural y otras herencias del horror.
Leyendo esas cartas de su puño y letra, ahora por fin sabemos que Karl Marx sufría de hidradenitis suppurativa crónica.

Es decir, al profeta del proletariado planetario, por temporadas se le estaba pudriendo cíclicamente la piel. Literalmente como a un cerdo, en los peores momentos. Acaso de ahí su insistencia en el uso de ese vocablo en sus cartas personales a Engels: "cerdo" como sinónimo de capitalista, en el diccionario de su dialéctica despótica.
Según la tesis del doctor Sam Shuster, dermatólogo del hospital universitario de Norfolk y Norwich, en el Reino Unido, dichas lesiones eran "demasiado persistentes, recurrentes, destructivas y sitio-específicas" en la piel del judío antisemita.

La hidradenitis suppurativa, según el doctor Shuster en un ensayo de 2007 aparecido en el British Journal of Dermatology, es una enfermedad infecciosa producto del bloqueo de los conductos apocrinos de los folículos pilosos, siendo especialmente nauseabunda precisamente en las regiones que más le dolían a Marx: las axilas, las tetillas, la ingle y el pubis, los genitales (pene y escroto) y la región perianal.

Así, el hombre que ha sido acusado por sus enemigos de practicar la vagancia al por mayor, contaba con una especie de certificado clínico para no trabajar tanto como los demás mortales: Marx tenía que rascarse a cada minuto hasta hacerse sangrar.

De ahí su rabia y su venganza contra la humanidad.
De ahí su visión apocalíptica de la alienación del hombre, y también su desprecio por todo lo que oliera a mercancía o mercado en manos de los demás: esos cerdos de piel lozana. Y algo mucho peor, esos cerdos de piel sana.

Marx también se quejaba por cartas de "tener la piel amarilla como el membrillo" y sufrir una "inflamación del hígado" que el doctor Susher diagnostica con carácter retroactivo como cólicos biliares, no como hepatitis viral ni bacteriana. Aunque, al parecer terminó matándolo una tuberculosis pulmonar, antes de 1883 Marx ya se pasaba la vida goteando pus. Su cuerpo era un anuncio de su cadáver. Y su cadáver encarnaba la crisis general del capitalismo global. Cuando uno no puede curarse su propio culo, al menos puede corregir la debacle del culo universal.

Según el archivo de la correspondencia familiar, muchos de esos forúnculos tardaban meses en mejorarle algo, necesitando de múltiples incisiones quirúrgicas para extraerles la fetidez, la que a veces, como ocurrió en noviembre de 1863, casi le comprometen la vida.
En febrero de 1866, Marx confiesa por escrito casi haber enloquecido al tomar una "navaja afilada" y él mismo pincharse las purulencias hasta que la sangre "saltó por los aires".

¡Y todo esto antes de que Marx completase y publicara en 1867 el primer tomo de su obra cumbre El Capital! Es innegable que Marx escribió heroicamente, eso sí. Escribió a pesar de sí mismo, como un titán tétrico que se autoimpuso su voluntad por encima de una epidermis radicalmente enferma.

Marx es, pues, uno de esos modelos de escritor en fase terminal, que se mantienen vivos gracias a la agresividad de su propia escritura. Pero, en cualquier caso, ¡pensar que la humanidad pudo haberse ahorrado unos 100 millones de muertos y acaso muchas más páginas impotables! ¡Y todo por un forúnculo fétido que no fructificó de manera fatal!
Paradojas del materialismo histológico. Citología criminal. Azar atroz.

Por su parte, desde Londres, según envejecía bellísimo, Engels hablaba poco y pagaba más. En 1895, sin embargo, murió de un curioso cáncer en la garganta. Pero al menos con su cremación sacó de la miseria marxista a las dos hijas sobrevivientes de su amigo (ambas llamadas Jenny), tras legarles una buena parte de su patrimonio valorado por entonces en 4,8 millones.

El capitalismo puede ser, en efecto, una cosa cómicamente muy cruel.

          Lake Baikal Ecosystem Faces the Threat of Eutrophication   
Recently there have been reports about large accumulations of algae on the beaches of Lake Baikal, the oldest and deepest freshwater body on earth, near major population centers and in areas with large concentrations of tourists and tourism infrastructure. To evaluate the observations indicating the ongoing process of eutrophication of Lake Baikal, a field study in July 2012 in the two largest bays of Lake Baikal, Barguzinsky and Chivyrkuisky, was organized. The study of phytoplankton using the sedimentary method and quantitative records of accumulations of macrophytes in the surf zone was made. In Chivyrkuisky Bay, we found the massive growth of colorless flagellates and cryptomonads as well as the aggregations of Elodea canadensis along the sandy shoreline (up to 26 kg/m2). Barguzinsky Bay registered abundantly cyanobacterial Anabaena species, cryptomonads, and extremely high biomass of Spirogyra species (up to 70 kg/m3). The results show the presence of local but significant eutrophication of investigated bays. To prevent further extensions of this process in unique ecosystem of Lake Baikal, the detailed study and monitoring of the coastal zone, the identification of the sources of eutrophication, and the development of measures to reduce nutrient inputs in the waters are urgently needed.

          Double Yuck!   
DON'T read this if you get queasy easily. Really. You've been warned.

I've said it before, but it's worth saying again: I was never, ever going to be a nurse. It's my family profession, pretty much, and I was NOT going to do it. I used to become lightheaded from looking at hypodermic needles, once fainted at the sight of blood, and could not tolerate the least of bad smells.

Then I had pets. And kids. And every bodily fluid that could be spilled on me, eventually was. Silly me, I thought I was inured to disgusting stuff, so when I realized how much a nursing degree would benefit me, I dived right in.

I was SO wrong. During nursing school, I'd occasionally encounter something that would make me vomit (this did NOT thrill my patients) and once passed out during a surgical procedure that involved cauterization (between the sizzling sound and the smell, I just couldn't take it).

So I learned that there were certain things I couldn't look at, and certain things that I should avoid smelling if at all possible (a little Vick's VapoRub right under the nose works wonders).

This week, I encountered one of those smells, and I don't think Vick's would have helped, even if I'd had any.

I'm doing a study which requires fecal samples. Now, in general, I can send a kit home with my patient, and the patient will collect the sample and send it in. And I figured I'd never have to collect one, because really: who poops on command?

Evidently, at least one person in the world CAN and DID.

The disorder I am studying often makes for fatty, oily stools which have (to say the least) an intense stench. And this particular person was far more intense than most, so that the entire clinic seemed to choke on the fog of fumes issuing from the bathroom. With my eyes tearing from the noisome smell, gagging and retching furiously, I dashed in and collected what I needed and then flushed the rest.

Of course, EVERYONE in the clinic could hear me gag (and some of them were ALSO gagging). When I emerge, triumphant, my sample sealed in its container, the patient's family all look at me and start to laugh.

Patient's dad: "Hey, it could be worse! You should have been on the plane the year we went to Disneyland!"

Patient's mom: "Yes, the smell followed him out of the plane bathroom -- it was so thick you almost thought you could SEE it."

Patient: "Yeah, you could sure tell as soon as it got to the each row of seats! People started gagging!"

Patient's dad: "You should have seen the stewardess run back there!"

All three then laugh and high five each other...I am so glad it's a source of humor, and not a source of shame...and I'm also very glad I was NOT on that plane!

And also this week, my daughter, Alex, called with her own story of supreme yuckiness.

She's taking microbiology this semester, and for one of her labs she had to grow some bacteria at home. So she swabbed one of her dog's ears and put it in the culture medium, and it was growing quite nicely, with lumpy and smelly, yellow, black, green and red fuzzy crud covering a dinner plate.

Yesterday, one of her dogs jumped up on the table and licked the plate clean.

Not only is she avoiding dog kisses until she gets over the ick factor, but she gets to tell her instructor that "The dog ate my homework!"

          Norwex VS Chemicals   
I recently had the privlege of discovering Norwex through Jeni Schultz a Norwex Independent Sales Consultant.  It was not until I actually started researching Norwex products that I realized just how harmful everyday household cleaning products and popular household names that we use everyday are.  Just how ignorant have I been?

I was sent three Norwex Products to personally review from Jeni Schultz.  The first was the Basic Package from Norwex Collections.  This included two microfiber cloths, one "enviro cloth" and one "window cloth".  With these two clothes you can clean almost any surface in the home.  I also received a set of Dryer Balls.  Below I am posting some interesting facts that will have you wanting to become more green and then a detailed description of each item and my personal experience with the products follows.

-In the last 50 years over 80,000 chemicals have been created for household cleaning

-Indoor Air Pollution is one of the top five highest ranking environmental health problems in America.

Click Here to Read the Environmental Protection Agency facts on Indoor Air Quality

-Click Here to Read the Consumer Product Safety Commission facts on Indoor Air Quality

-Indoor Air Quality can be worse than outside air

-Norwex Microfiber allows you to eleminate the chemicals, saves you time, and money

-The average household spends an estimated $700 on household chemicals a year

My Personal Opinion/Review

Initially I thought, gosh, these products are expensive.  After tons of research and resources available at our fingertips online, I realized how ignorant I have been and educated myself on indoor air pollution and just how harmful all those household cleaners really can be.  Also, I realized why keep spending money on something that keeps running out when I can be using something that is environmentally friendly "green" and reusable.  Norwex is changing my life!

Enviro Cloth

The Enviro Cloth can be used dry to dust without using any chemicals.  The dirt/dust just clings to the cloth without stirring up all those particles in the air that always get in my eyes and contacts when I use that dang swiffer wand I have (I had) :/  The Enviro Cloth can be used wet with water or a environmentally friendly Norwex product to clean dirt/grime off of counters, cabinets, stove tops, or how about those dusty fan blades?  Again, the dirt just clings to this cloth, then you simply rinse the dirt off to reuse or throw it in the wash and use it later.

Window Cloth

The Window Cloth can be used in a variety of ways as well.  I was confused because it is labeled polish!  Well I suppose it does polish since it cleans windows with water!  You heard me right.  We detailed the cars and boat and used this handy cloth to clean the windows!  This product is advertised to clean mirrors, widows, jewelry, and shiny surfaces!  So we put this to work on our brushed nickel chandelier, ceiling light covers, vanity lights in the bathroom, and sink fixtures with water.

Now as far as using a chemical to get rid of bacteria that is safe and environmentally friendly, try Hydrogen Peroxide!

Norwex Dryer Balls

I know I have tried other "as seen on TV" dryer balls and quiet honestly I felt like I got ripped off. I was anxious to get the chance to try a product that seems to be tried and proven.  In my quest to become a more "green" mom I have decided to change my laundry habits dramatically, starting with cutting out the use of fabric softener completely if at all possible.  These Norwex Dryer Balls work wonderfully.  Honestly I just use one at a time, I don't know if I am suppose to use two, but the benefits are obvious from one.  First, my clothes don't have static cling, they still smell clean, and the clothes were pretty much wrinkle free.  Sometimes the kids forget softener and that leads to hard to get out wrinkles (aka wrinkles that have to be starched out).  They think putting these dryer balls in is so fun, so these dryer balls are a hit in my house, silly kids!  Everyone in my family will be getting these next Christmas!!!

Thank you Jeni for this awesome opportunity!

          Meet the Indiana Jones of ancient ales and extreme beverages

Courtney Columbus | NPR

He is sometimes known as the Indiana Jones of his area of research — ancient ales, wines and extreme beverages. Others call him Dr. Pat.

Patrick McGovern has spent decades searching for and analyzing the residues of fermented drinks that can be hundreds or thousands of years old — and then re-creating them.

His latest book, Ancient Brews: Rediscovered and Re-Created, delves into the early history of fermentation. He takes us all the way back to supposedly drunken monkeys feasting on fermented fruit juice or honey they found, long before any human had figured out how to brew beer. And he takes us through his modern re-creations of some of these ancient brews and their cultural importance.

"Just about every culture you can think of, they have a fermented beverage that's central to the social activity, religions, and a lot of times, it becomes economically very important," McGovern says. "And I'm always surprised when I see a book on the Paleolithic, or even just more modern recent history, where they don't really even discuss it."

McGovern is the scientific director of the Biomolecular Archaeology Project for Cuisine, Fermented Beverages and Health at the University of Pennsylvania Museum in Philadelphia. He's also an anthropology adjunct professor at the university.

He often travels with the founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Sam Calagione, with whom he works to re-create ancient beverages and give educational talks about them.

McGovern spoke with NPR recently about his new book. This interview has been edited for brevity and clarity.

In the book, you mentioned your goal "to encompass the worldwide millennia-long 'love affair' of our species with fermented beverages." Do you think you did that? How so?

I just touched on it, really. ... Ninety-nine percent of human history is back in the Paleolithic period, and we have very little evidence from the Paleolithic period. We have no containers to analyze, for instance. So we have to sort of make stabs at what it would have been like 2 million years ago with an early humanoid. The earliest primate on the planet, the Malaysian tree shrew, drank a fermented palm nectar all night long. But we're really in the dark when it comes to the Paleolithic period.

And then also, the chapter on chicha [a beer made primarily from fermented maize] — I thought that was interesting. I've never actually tried it.

That probably is the earliest way humans took carbohydrates like grains, tubers and so forth and did make a fermented beverage. So the first beer was probably made by chewing and spitting it out, and letting microorganisms come along and start the fermentation. We did it with corn. They still do it for manioc in South America.

What would you tell someone who has never tried chicha before and who might be skeptical or might think it's gross to have people chewing up stuff and using it to make beer?

I tell this story about, at the 2009 Great American Beer Festival, people were lined up to taste it, and all across the Denver Convention Center, we had such a long line that the big companies, Budweiser and so forth, they were complaining that we were blocking access to their booths. And it's sanitary, because the alcohol would kill any bad bacteria. But you know, you can put other things with it. The first batch that we made, we put wild strawberries and pepper berries. But you can have it just plain, and it tastes like sort of a lager beer without any additives to it.

Do you have a favorite fermented beverage that you've re-created?

I like the Chinese one, Chateau Jiahu ... the earliest chemically confirmed fermented beverage that we've ever found. But it's a very complex beverage. Already at the beginning of the Neolithic period, we're starting to get the domestication of plants and animals and settling down to take care of everything. It's got rice, some of the earliest rice, in it. We couldn't take ancient rice and use it, but we did use rice that had bran and the hulls intact, and it's because they wouldn't have been able to grind up the grain that purely. It had honey; it had grape, some species of Chinese grape. This would be the earliest wine, the earliest mead and the earliest beer. So that, to me, is really the one that appeals to me most, and it also has a very nice flavor, because it's kind of sweet and sour and goes very well with Chinese food.

What keeps you going after all these years?

Just the prospect of discovering something new, that's what really drives me. We're going to find out something exciting and we're going to re-create another liquid time capsule that's going to transport you back to some period in our ancestry. That's the basic motivation. Because every time you discover something, you get, like, a high. I think it's the best high in the world. You find something archaeologically which no one has ever seen before. It can be dull in a lot of ways, but then you have those moments of insight and discovery that make it all worthwhile. ­

          cerdas memilih   
Cerdas Memilih
      Salah satu ciri remaja putri yang sudah baligh adalah mengalami menstruasi setiap bulan. Semenjak itu, kebutuhan pokok mereka bertambah, yakni harus mengalokasikan dana untuk membeli pembalut. Sebagai Generasi yang cerdas, tentu remaja putri harus cerdas pula memilih pembalut mana yang sehat dan aman bagi organ reproduksi. Setiap orang tidak ingin sakit, apalagi sakit yang membahayakan organ penting kita bukan?
      Fakta yang penulis temui sungguh mengejutkan,
*     Jika menggunakan pembalut biasa, meski baru 2 jam pemakaian, terdapat sekitar 107 bakteri per millimeter persegi. Ini yang menyebabkan wanita mudah terjangkiti infeksi jamur, bakteri dan virus selama menstruasi.
*    Pembalut itu terbuat dari kertas bekas dan serbuk kayu/pulp yang diolah dengan bahan kimia berbahaya untuk memutihkannya dan membersihkannya.
*    The Tampon Safety and Research Act of 1999, H.R.890.U.S.A.1999 menyatakan bahwa zat dioxin dan serat sintesis yang terkandung dalam pembalut wanita dan produk sejenis beresiko tinggi terhadap kesehatan wanita, termasuk resiko terhadap kanker seviks, endometriosis, kanker ovarium, kanker payudara, penurunan system kekebalan tubuh, radang pelviks, sindroma syok keracunan dan lain lain.
Sungguh mengerikan bukan, tentu ini masuk akal, mengingat harga perbungkus pembalut paling mahal Rp.6000 untuk isi 10 pads, jadi Rp.600/pads. Belum dipotong biaya iklan (biaya produksi), berapa kira2 harga asli dari per padsnya????? Apakah mungkin dengan harga yang murah dapat produk dengan kualitas terbaik dan aman? Itulah mengapa kita harus cerdas memilih. Sekali lagi MEMAKAI PEMBALUT TDK BERKUALITAS = INVESTASI PENYAKIT.
      Bukan namanya manusia kalau tidak berfikir menemukan solusinya bukan? Saat ini, hasil inovasi manusia2 brilian telah menemukan CLOTH MENSTRUAL PAD. Bahan tekstil yang digunakan pada cloth menstrual pad, biasanya adalah :
a.  PUL (polyurethane laminate ) yang digunakan sebagai lapisan terluar : Bahan ini pada mulanya dikembangkan untuk kebutuhan medis. PUL bersifat lembut, lentur, dan yang paling penting adalah waterproof, alias tidak tembus air. Sehingga PUL akan mencegah kebocoran darah haid yang ditampung di dalam cloth menstrual pad. Uniknya, walaupun PUL ini bersifat waterproof, ia tetap breathable. Sehingga tidak mengganggu sirkulasi udara dan tidak menimbulkan kelembaban.
b.  Serat microfiber : bahan ini memiliki daya serap tinggi, sehingga pada cloth menstrual pad, ia difungsikan sebagai lapisan penyerap. Lapisan inilah yang akan menyerap dan menyimpan darah haid. Selain itu, keunggulan serat microfiber adalah hypoallergenic dan antibacterial. Jadi aman untuk kulit yang sensitif. Sifat antibacterialnya akan mencegah tumbuhnya bakteri.
c.   Microfleece : Bahan ini biasanya digunakan di lapisan teratas (yang bersentuhan langsung dengan kulit). Bersifat higly breathable, lembut, dan stain repellant (tidak suka noda). Microfleece juga tidak suka cairan, sehingga darah haid akan langsung diteruskan ke lapisan microfiber. Oleh karena itu permukaan microfleece akan tetap kering dan tidak lengket.
Pembalut kain modern sangat nyaman digunakan. Bahkan dari pengalaman saya, pembalut kain ini lebih nyaman dari pembalut kertas sekali pakai. Selain itu, rasa nyaman juga timbul karena pembalut kain tidak menggunakan zat kimia. Tidak bikin panas. Dan Alhamdulillah keluhan rasa ga enak pertanda mestruasi datang ga ada lagi.
Apa saja keuntungan menggunakan pembalut kain modern ? Keuntungan nya adalah :
*    Lebih sehat, karena bebas bahan kimia berbahaya
*    Nyaman, karena terbuat dari bahan tekstil berkualitas
*    Hemat, karena bisa dicuci dan digunakan kembali. Bahkan, jika perawatannya bagus, dapat bertahan hingga dua tahun. Jadi kita tidak perlu lagi membuang uang untuk membeli pembalut sekali pakai
*    Mengurangi sampah. Jadi kita turut berpartisipasi dalam menjaga kelestarian bumi.
Memang sih, untuk investasi awal sangat berat mengingat harga pembalut ini terhitung mahal, bayangkan saja untuk produk lokal, paling mahal Rp.30.000/pads dan paling murah Rp 40.000/ kemasan isi 3 pasang. Paling tidak kita butuh 6 pads. Jadi kita butuh uang antara Rp 80.000 sampai Rp 180.000 untuk membelinya, tapi bisa 2 tahun. Jika dibanding dengan pambalut pasaran, sebulan kita mengalokasikan Rp.6000, dan selama 2 tahun (24 bulan) maka kita mengeluarkan uang Rp. 144.000. tapi kita juga menyumbang sampah, belum lagi resiko terganggunya organ reproduksi kita. Padahal biaya pengobatannya sangat mahal.
Apalagi yang kita tunggu, demi menjaga kesehatan organ reproduksi kita. Jangan menunggu sakit dulu. Lebih baik mencegah daripada mengobati kan. Berminat??? Penulis juga jual loh, bisa dilihat di FB M.Vidya Anggreyani di foto tepatnya folder “my bisnis”.

The immune system.

Essays Biochem. 2016 Oct 31;60(3):275-301

Authors: Nicholson LB

Abstract
All organisms are connected in a complex web of relationships. Although many of these are benign, not all are, and everything alive devotes significant resources to identifying and neutralizing threats from other species. From bacteria through to primates, the presence of some kind of effective immune system has gone hand in hand with evolutionary success. This article focuses on mammalian immunity, the challenges that it faces, the mechanisms by which these are addressed, and the consequences that arise when it malfunctions.

Oligonucleotide-based systems: DNA, microRNAs, DNA/RNA aptamers.

Essays Biochem. 2016 Jun 30;60(1):27-35

Authors: Jolly P, Estrela P, Ladomery M

Abstract
There are an increasing number of applications that have been developed for oligonucleotide-based biosensing systems in genetics and biomedicine. Oligonucleotide-based biosensors are those where the probe to capture the analyte is a strand of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), ribonucleic acid (RNA) or a synthetic analogue of naturally occurring nucleic acids. This review will shed light on various types of nucleic acids such as DNA and RNA (particularly microRNAs), their role and their application in biosensing. It will also cover DNA/RNA aptamers, which can be used as bioreceptors for a wide range of targets such as proteins, small molecules, bacteria and even cells. It will also highlight how the invention of synthetic oligonucleotides such as peptide nucleic acid (PNA) or locked nucleic acid (LNA) has pushed the limits of molecular biology and biosensor development to new perspectives. These technologies are very promising albeit still in need of development in order to bridge the gap between the laboratory-based status and the reality of biomedical applications.

          The Engineering of Biology and Medicine   
The Engineering of Biology and Medicine Davis, Mark E.; Langer, Robert S In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of PNAS, this Special Feature summarizes the enormous progress that has been made in the engineering of biology and medicine. In 1915, PNAS published articles, such as “A comparison of methods for determining the respiratory exchange of man,” by T. M. Carpenter (1), “The lymphocyte as a factor in natural and induced resistance to transplanted cancer,” by J. B. Murphy and J. J. Morton (2), and “Mechanism of protection against bacterial infection,” by C. G. Bull (3). It is fascinating to look back at these early studies and see how much progress has been made in the engineering of biology and medicine. Biology and medicine have been transformed from descriptive science and art to quantitative, mechanistic understandings of function, primarily because of the elucidation of biology at the molecular level. These advancements have led to the creation of new drugs, vaccines, devices, diagnostics, and imaging agents that significantly contribute to life saving and life extension. In this Special Feature, a variety of topics are presented to highlight the current state of the art and possible future scenarios for the engineering of biology and medicine. We thank PNAS for publishing together these state-of-the art reviews, as we feel that this Special Feature will provide a useful reference for those in field—as well as those out of field—who are seeking to understand where the engineering of biology and medicine is likely to be in the future.

          chilled76 on "Infected wisdom tooth. How long?"   

Evening all,

I'm going back to the dentist on Monday, but as it's Saturday evening and I'm not bad enough to ring the emergency dentist I thought I'd ask you kind folk on here..

Anyone had am infected wisdom tooth? How long did it take to clear?

I ended up at emergency dentist last Sunday night with a lot of pain and inflammation, turns out one of my impacted wisdom teeth has become infected. Had 5 days of amoxicillin which didn't help much so went to my dentist on Wednesday and she gave me some metronidozol (5 days).

It's now Saturday and although slightly better it's still really bad... I've got 1 day of antibiotics left.

I'm going back Monday, but am getting paranoid I've got some sort of resistant strain of bacteria in there.

Anyone been through similar? How long did it take to clear? Advice?

          Critical Vaccine Studies: 400 Important Scientific Papers Parents and Pediatricians Need To Be Aware Of   

By Dr. Mercola

Vaccines: Are they safe? Are they effective? To help answer those questions is Neil Z. Miller,1 a medical research journalist and director of the Thinktwice Global Vaccine Institute.

Miller has investigated vaccines for three decades and written several books on the subject, including "Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective?," "Vaccine Safety Manual for Concerned Families and Health Practitioners" and, most recently, "Miller's Review of Critical Vaccine Studies: 400 Important Scientific Papers Summarized for Parents and Researchers."

"Miller's Review," published in 2016, is a magnificent piece of work. In it, he reviews the concern about vaccine safety and efficacy raised by 400 peer-reviewed published studies. The book doesn't review studies that support vaccination (almost all of which are funded by the industry and the government, by the way) as those studies are available on the CDC website.

"I got started when my own children were born … over 30 years ago … When my wife was pregnant, I felt I had to do due diligence about vaccines. I have to be honest, though. Before I even started to research vaccines, my wife and I pretty much knew intuitively that we were not going to inject our children with vaccines.

When I give lectures, I often tell people, 'How can you expect to achieve health by injecting healthy children with toxic substances?' I intuitively knew that … but still felt an obligation to do my due diligence and to do the research," Miller says.

"The thing is that when I do things, I do them pretty thoroughly … I was doing my research at medical libraries. I was gathering everything and I started to collate it and coordinate it … People started to find out about the information I had organized. They were asking me about vaccines even way back then. I organized it into a booklet. I started to share that with people. Everything snowballed from that first booklet."

Don't Believe the 'There's No Evidence' Argument

"Miller's Review" was created in response to the common refrain that "there are no studies showing vaccines are unsafe or ineffective."

"I hear this often," Miller says. "Parents come to me all the time, saying, 'My doctor told me that vaccines are safe and there are no studies that prove [otherwise].' I've been doing the research for 30 years. I know of literally thousands of studies that document [concerns]. My books all document [those] studies."

"Miller's Review" is unique in that it summarizes 400 studies in bullet points with direct quotes from the study — with one study per page — plus citations so that you can find and read the study in full should you decide to do so. All of the studies are published in peer-reviewed journals and indexed by the National Library of Medicine.

"These are valid studies by valid researchers in many journals that people have heard about — The Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine, all the mainstream journals (and some of the smaller journals, but they're still valid peer-reviewed studies) that show there are problems with vaccines: There are safety problems, there are efficacy problems.

They're all in one place so that people, like doctors, can get this information all in one convenient place. This book has been very effective with medical doctors. When medical doctors who are on the fence, or who are pro-vaccine, get this book and read it, I hear back from parents that their doctor is no longer pressuring them to get the vaccines.

Their doctor is now respecting their decisions to not vaccinate or to go to some sort of alternative vaccine schedule if that's the choice these parents make …

I am all about having uncensored, unfettered access to all of the available information out there about vaccines. Not just what your medical doctor wants you to know. Not just what the pharmaceutical companies want you to know and not just what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is telling doctors to share with their patients.

I want [parents] to be absolutely free to make a decision whether or not they want to vaccinate their children … It's really a human rights issue. It's really about the mandatory aspect of vaccines. I think all vaccines are problematic. I think this not just based on my own feelings, but based on the evidence I've researched over the years."

Uninformed Decision-Making Is Part of the Problem

Ultimately, every parent will make a decision about whether or not to vaccinate. The problem is, most of the time, it's an uninformed decision. An issue brought up in some of his earlier books is that there's been a deliberate misinformation campaign aimed at making you believe vaccines are far more effective than they actually are.

For example, disease incidence data is used to suggest vaccines have dramatically reduced the incidence of a given disease, when in fact the disease rate had already declined by 90 percent, or more in some cases, before a vaccine was ever available. Measles has been problematic in developing nations, mostly because of malnutrition, vitamin A deficiency, lack of clean water, sanitation and quick access to medical care. As these measures are addressed, the mortality from measles declines on its own.

Vitamin A appears particularly important, and studies sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) have confirmed that high doses of vitamin A supplementation protect children against complications and death associated with the disease.

"By the time the measles vaccine was introduced in the United States in 1963, by the late 1950s, the mortality rate from measles had drastically dropped. This was due to the [fact] that the population had gained protection against the more dangerous ravages of the disease. This happens with a lot of different diseases.

In my book, I've got many different types of graphs and illustrations to help the reader understand the main points I'm making … [M]any of these graphs show that these diseases were declining significantly on their own, well before vaccines were introduced.

For example, scarlet fever. Where did scarlet fever go? Why don't we see cases of scarlet fever when we didn't have mass vaccinations with a scarlet fever vaccine? That's an important point to be made."

Many Childhood Diseases Are Protective Against Cancer

Another significant point is there are dozens of studies demonstrating that contracting certain childhood diseases actually protects you against various types of cancer later in life — everything from melanoma to leukemia.

It's important to realize that when you have a naturally-acquired infection, you're really exercising your immune system quite profoundly, developing authentic, lifelong immunity in the process, which is radically different from the type of artificial and temporary immunity you get from a vaccine.

One of the reasons for this is because vaccines stimulate a completely different part of your immune system than does fighting off a naturally-acquired infection. There's even evidence suggesting childhood diseases help protect against future heart disease.

"[A] Japanese study … looked at over 100,000 men and women of elderly age. They looked back at their history of catching these common childhood illnesses. Did they catch chickenpox, rubella, measles and mumps? What they found was it's actually protective against heart disease.

You're protected against heart attacks and various types of arteriosclerotic disease of the artery systems. It's protecting the arterial system so that you are protected not only — when you catch these diseases — from cancers, but from heart disease, heart attacks and strokes as well … There are different theories on why that takes place. But the important thing is that study after study confirms that it takes place."

Vaccines Create Problematic Mutations

Another vaccine-related problem that many are completely unaware of is the fact that vaccines cause mutations in the disease-bearing microorganisms, much in the same way antibiotics cause bacteria to mutate. The diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis vaccine (DTaP), for example, has caused the pertussis microorganism, Bordetella pertussis, to mutate and evade the vaccine. The same thing happened with the pneumococcal vaccine and the Haemophilus influenzae type B vaccine.

"They're finding, for example, when you've got a vaccine that targets only certain strains of disease where multiple strains are actually causing the disease, the vaccine is pretty effective at reducing the incidence of disease from that particular strain. But what happens is the other strains come and take their place …  They come back even stronger.

That's what [happened] with Prevnar, a vaccine for pneumococcus, pneumococcal disease. All infants that receive vaccines according to the CDC's standard immunization schedule receive a pneumococcal vaccine at 2, 4 and 6 months of age. That vaccine only targeted seven strains. Pneumococcal has 90 different strains capable of causing pneumococcal disease.

They were pretty effective at reducing the amount of disease caused by the pneumococcal strains targeted by the vaccine. But what happened within just a few short years, the other strains became more prevalent … taking the place of the original strains [and] they became more virulent.

They came out with a new vaccine in 2010 … to deal with the vaccine losing its efficacy because of what I just explained. The new vaccine included the original seven strains plus six additional strains, the ones that were causing most of the pneumococcal disease now. Within two years of the new upgraded, updated pneumococcal vaccine, the strains had already mutated … "

Tragically, parents are being blamed and harassed for many of these vaccine failures. Parents are being told that if you don't vaccinate your kids, you are responsible for spreading the disease. That's the idea the CDC, the medical industry and the pharmaceutical industry are promoting.

However, if you actually read the studies, you'll find what the scientists know —the real problem is evolutionary adaptation. Dr. Meryl Nass expounded on this issue in a 2013 interview. The microorganisms adapt. "What's happened with pertussis [is] the pertussis microorganism has changed. It's now not only become more virulent; it's become more prevalent," Miller explains. "It's evaded the actual vaccine."

Herd Immunity Cannot Be Achieved Through Immunizations

Another core argument for mass vaccinations is achieving herd immunity. Miller believes, and I agree with this belief that herd immunity may never be achieved through vaccination because high vaccination rates encourage the evolution of more severe disease-causing agents. In a vaccinated population, the virulence increases due to selective pressure, as the pathogen is strengthened and adapts in its fight for survival against the vaccine.

Meanwhile, in an unvaccinated population, the environment actually promotes lowered virulence, as the pathogen does not want to kill its host. A wise pathogen is one that's able to infect many hosts without killing them, because when the host dies, the pathogen loses the environment upon which its own survival depends.

However, once the disease organism mutates and becomes more virulent within the vaccinated population, it raises the stakes not only among the vaccinated but also among the unvaccinated, who are now faced with a far more virulent foe than normal.

"In terms of herd immunity, you not only have … this selective pressure that's keeping you from being able to achieve herd immunity (because the microorganisms are always attempting to evade the vaccine), but pertussis vaccine is only 60 percent effective. That's with the best estimates. And that's only for a couple of years.

Studies show that even after three, four or five years, you're back to almost no efficacy whatsoever, almost back to the pre-vaccine period.

How can you expect to achieve herd immunity with a vaccine that is only 60 percent effective? You can vaccinate 100 percent of the population and you cannot achieve herd immunity with a vaccine that is only 60 percent effective. Influenza vaccines — many years, these vaccines are not good matches for the circulating virus — so you have zero percent efficacy. In the best years, you only have 30, 40 or 50 percent efficacy."

Studies Show Vaccinations Increase Infant Mortality

One of the tenets of conventional medicine is that if you vaccinate a population, everyone is going to be healthier. There will be less disease. But when you compare vaccination rates and health statistics, you find the converse is actually true. This is some of the most compelling information Miller shares in his book.

For example, when comparing vaccination rates in 34 developed nations, they found a significant correlation between infant mortality rates and the number of vaccine doses infants received. Developed nations like the United States that require the most vaccines tend to have the highest infant mortality. You can read this study here.2

"I'm the lead author on that study, actually. My co-author was Gary Goldman [Ph.D., who] worked for the CDC for seven years. He quit when he found that the CDC was not allowing anything detrimental [to get out]. Goldman found problems with the chickenpox vaccine and wanted to publish that data. The CDC said, 'We're not going to allow you to do that.' That's when Goldman quit …

Goldman and I did two peer-reviewed studies … The children in the United States are required — if they follow the CDC's immunization schedule — to receive the most vaccines in the developed world, actually throughout the world. Globally. Twenty-six vaccines. Other developed nations require less.

Some nations only require 12 vaccines — Switzerland, Sweden, Iceland and other European nations — yet they have better infant mortality rates. That's what our study looked at. [V]accines are promoted as being lifesaving. They're given to children to protect them against dying from infectious diseases.

We gathered all the immunization schedules from the 34 nations [and found] the United States had the 34th worst infant mortality rate ... It had the worst. Thirty-three nations in the developed world had better infant mortality rates. We did the study and we found what many people would find to be a counterintuitive relationship.

We found a statistically significant relationship. There was a direct correlation between the number of vaccines that a nation required for their infants and the infant mortality rate. The more vaccines that a nation required, the worse the infant mortality rate."

Why Is This Not Front-Page News?

Many naïvely believe that if all of this is true, if vaccines truly were doing more harm than good, it would be front-page news. The reason you rarely if ever hear anything about studies such as this one is because the vaccine industry has an iron grip on the information being publicly disseminated. Collusion between federal regulatory agencies, the government and the industry is just one of several hurdles preventing this kind of information from being widely known.

You have individuals like Dr. Julie Gerberding, who headed up the CDC and was in charge of infectious disease recommendations for seven years before moving on to become president of Merck Vaccines, one of the largest vaccine manufacturers in the world. That's just one of many dozens of examples of this revolving door, which in turn has led to the breakdown of true science-based medicine.

"We have a serious problem where top scientists admit that they drop data points from studies that they've been influenced by the people who are funding their studies to sometimes not publish the study because it didn't come up with the results they wanted, and so on," Miller says.

"We have a serious problem with the pharmaceutical industry controlling which studies get published. Also, there's a serious problem because the pharmaceutical companies are controlling the advertising dollars that go out to the major media.

Mainstream media makes approximately 70 percent of its income from pharmaceutical ads. They do not want to publish or promote anything, even in their newscasts that would be critical of vaccines because it could compromise their potential to keep bringing in these millions of dollars they make every year from the pharmaceutical companies."

The greatest, most serious problem we currently face is the concerted push to mandate vaccines and eliminate personal belief exemptions. For example, to go to school in California, you now have to be fully vaccinated. No exemptions are allowed, which is really a violation of human rights.

Giving Multiple Simultaneous Vaccines Is Extremely Risky, Study Shows

The second study3 Miller and Goldman published analyzed nearly 40,000 reports of infants who suffered adverse reactions after vaccines. Here, they found that infants given the most vaccines were significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die compared to those who received fewer vaccines.

It's worth noting that this data was obtained from the vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS) database, a passive reporting system, and that research has confirmed passive reporting systems underreport by 50 to 1.

What this means is that when you find one report in VAERS, you have to multiply that by 50 to get closer to reality because, on average, only 1 in 50 adverse events are ever reported. Doctors have a legal obligation to report side effects to VAERS, but they don't, and there are no ramifications for failure to make a report. Parents can also make a report to the database, and I encourage all parents to do so, should your child experience a vaccine reaction.

At present, VAERS has over 500,000 reports of adverse reactions to vaccines, and every year, more than 30,000 new reports are added to it. Miller and Goldman downloaded this database and created a program to extract all the reports involving infants. In all, they extracted the reports of 38,000 infants who experienced an adverse reaction following the receipt of one or more vaccines.

They then created a program that was able to determine the number of vaccines each infant had received before suffering an adverse reaction, and stratified the reports by the number of vaccines (anywhere from one to eight) the infants had received simultaneously before the reaction took place. They specifically honed in on serious adverse reactions requiring hospitalization or that led to death. Here's what they found:

  • Infants who received three vaccines simultaneously were statistically and significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die after receiving their vaccines than children who received two vaccines at the same time
  • Infants who received four vaccines simultaneously were statistically and significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die than children who received three or two vaccines, and so on all the way up to eight vaccines
  • Children who received eight vaccines simultaneously were "off-the-charts" statistically and significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die after receiving those vaccines
  • Children who received vaccines at an earlier age were significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die than children who receive those vaccines at a later age

Childhood Vaccination Schedule Is Based on Convenience, Not Science or Safety

As noted by Miller:

"The industry, the CDC and Dr. Paul Offit tell us that you can take multiple vaccines. Offit said you could theoretically take 10,000 vaccines at one time; that an infant can be exposed to that many pathogens simultaneously without hurting the child. The CDC's immunization schedule requires that children receive eight vaccines at 2 months of age, eight vaccines at 4 months of age and eight vaccines at 6 months of age.

I ask parents, 'When did you ever take eight drugs at the same time? … If you did take eight drugs at the same time, would you think it was more likely that you would or would not have an adverse reaction?' Because toxicologists know that the more drugs you take at the same time, the more potential for some kind of a synergistic or additive toxicity … What this study confirms is that it's a dangerous practice to give multiple vaccines simultaneously.

The CDC has put together a schedule based on convenience. They say '[G]ive eight vaccines at 2 months, give eight more vaccines at 4 months and give eight more booster shots at 6 months' because it's convenient. They're afraid that parents will not come to the pediatrician again and again and again if they have to keep coming back for more vaccines, so they get multiple [shots all at once].

They said, 'We're going to make this schedule based on convenience.' Not based on evidence. Not based on science. There's nothing scientific about the CDC's recommended immunization schedule. We've shown it with our study …

We also showed that children who received vaccines at an earlier age are statistically significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die than children who receive it at a later age. We divided it up to children who receive their vaccines in the first 6 months of age versus children who receive their vaccines in the last six months of infancy.

Again, off-the-charts statistically significant, it's much more dangerous to give younger infants multiple vaccines than to give older infants multiple vaccines. This makes sense because they're giving the same dose to a newborn or a baby that might be 8, 9, 10, 11 or 12 pounds at 2 months of age versus a child who might be 15 or 17 pounds … at a later age."

More Information

You can find "Miller's Review of Critical Vaccine Studies: 400 Important Scientific Papers Summarized for Parents and Researchers" on ThinkTwice.com. This book is an invaluable resource for parents who want to do their due diligence before making up their mind about whether or not to vaccinate their children. On his website, you will also find his other books, along with studies and publications relating to vaccine safety and efficacy concerns.

Another resource is the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC). NVIC is leading the charge when it comes to educating the public about efforts to impose mandatory vaccinations, and how to preserve our health freedoms on the local, state and federal levels.

Ultimately, everyone will have to make a choice about vaccinations. They key is to make it an informed one — to understand and weigh the potential risks and benefits. To do that, you need access to both sides of the debate, and Miller has done us all a great favor by making the largely hidden side of the equation more readily accessible.
