Scientists have debunked one of the myths about diets

Scientists have debunked one of the myths about dietsClay Semenkovich and his colleagues from the University of Washington in St. Louis, USA, discovered that a diet extremely low in fat does not promote weight loss. It is believed that this diet not only prevents the accumulation of new fat in the body, but also provoke the body into burning stored fat reserves. However, researchers from St. Louis showed on experience with genetically modified mice (they had a lack of a certain enzyme in the liver) that this is a misconception. It was found that the liver needs to flow from outside a moderate amount of new fat, in order to properly organize the burning of existing fat. Читать полностью -->

Scientists have learned how to rejuvenate muscles

Scientists have learned how to rejuvenate musclesAmerican scientists have developed an original method of 'rejuvenation' of the muscles. By manipulating the substances that control the development and work of the muscular system, they were able to grow and adult mice muscles, no different from the muscle tissue of young individuals. In order to achieve the effect of 'rejuvenation' of the muscles, the researchers stimulated not by muscle cells and the so-called cell-satellites present in muscle tissue. Activation of these cells contributed to the recovery of muscle function, and accelerate their healing after injuries. . Читать полностью -->

Athlete's foot

Athlete's footWhat is the General characteristic of the disease? Athlete's foot or athlete's foot, is called interdigitale by Trichophyton.

Passenger aircraft deprived of oxygen

Passenger aircraft deprived of oxygenBritish anesthesiologist Susan Humphreys of the Royal hospital in Belfast for the first time conducted a study of the oxygen level in the blood of passenger Airliners. The study involved 84 people at the age from one year to 78 years. It turned out that when the plane reaches cruising altitude, about half of the passengers with the same level of oxygen in the blood is reduced by 6% or more. In hospitals in such cases, prescribe supplemental oxygen. The reason for the reduction of oxygen is low air pressure in the cabin. It reduce in order to reduce the load on the airframe.

Scientists were able to extend the period of gestation

Scientists were able to extend the period of gestationAmerican researchers announced that they managed to extend the period of gestation mouse pups. Scientists believe that the same methodology, the same can be successfully applied to humans. The main percentage of the morbidity and mortality of newborns is defined by a group of premature infants. The researchers hope that their outdoor method will significantly reduce the mortality of premature infants. The female body during pregnancy produces the hormone progesterone, which prevents uterine contractions. Shortly before birth the effectiveness of hormone drops sharply. Читать полностью -->

SARS - the first epidemic of the XXI century
