Alimentación

Vegetales que aportan calcio. Por @blogdefarmacia

 AlimentaciónNo es cierto que al consumir lácteos se tenga menor riesgo de osteoporosis, ya que una dieta vegetal con alimentos que aporten calcio junto con unos hábitos adecuados te protegerá muy bien.

Es cierto que al hablar del calcio siempre nos viene a la mente como el mineral de los huesos fuertes, pero hay que saber que este mineral tiene otras muchas funciones diferentes. Por ejemplo actúa en la coagulación de la sangre, también es esencial en el cerebro para el envío y recepción de señales nerviosas entre las neuronas y también el calcio es imprescindible en los músculos para su contracción y relajación. Además el calcio es necesario para un correcto funcionamiento cardiaco y para la secreción de algunas hormonas.

Por todo ello, un deficit de calcio no sólo puede afectar a la aparición de osteoporosis, si no que también provoca espasmos musculares, calambres, entumecimiento e incluso, en casos graves, palpitaciones y desorientación.

Diabetes

U.Va. to lead studies on 'artificial pancreas' for Type 1 diabetes

 DiabetesBy TAMMIE SMITH Richmond Times-Dispatch
Researchers at the University of Virginia will head a $12.7 million project studying so-called “artificial pancreas” technology, in this case a smartphone application that wirelessly reads a sensor measuring a person’s glucose level and that tells an insulin pump to deliver the correct dose of insulin.
Such technology, under development by several companies, is referred to as an artificial pancreas because it does the work of the pancreas, the organ in the body that normally releases insulin to control the body’s blood sugar levels. In people with diabetes, the pancreas doesn’t work like it’s supposed to.

HAPPENED IN 2016

Zika is here to stay and remains a significant public health challenge

 HAPPENED IN 2016he fifth meeting of the Emergency Committee (EC) on Zika and microcephaly convened by the Director-General under the International Health Regulations (IHR 2005) regarding microcephaly, other neurological disorders and Zika virus was held by teleconference on 18 November 2016.

The Committee was briefed on the implementation of the Temporary Recommendations issued by the Director-General on advice from the four previous EC meetings. The Committee was updated on the latest developments on Zika virus geographic spread, natural history, epidemiology, microcephaly and other neonatal complications associated with Zika virus, Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and current knowledge on sexual transmission of Zika virus.

The following States Parties provided information on microcephaly, GBS and other neurological disorders occurring in the presence of Zika virus transmission as well as control measures being implemented: Brazil, Thailand, and the United States of America.

The Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) declared by the Director-General of WHO has led the world to an urgent and coordinated response, providing the understanding that Zika virus infection and associated consequences represent a highly significant long-term problem that must be managed by WHO, States Parties and other partners in a way tha

Tensión arterial

Alimentos que ayudan a mantener la tensión arterial por @blogdefarmacia

 Tensión arterialUna gran preocupación médica es la hipertensión arterial, ya que puede derivar en enfermedades cardiovasculares o cerebrales. Hay alimentos que ayudan a mantenerla a raya, te aconsejaremos una lista de 10 alimentos que ayudan a controlarla.

La tensión arterial alta es cada vez más frecuente en los países desarrollados, debido principalmente a la nutrición, el estrés y la contaminación. La tensión arterial es la fuerza que ejerce la sangre sobre las paredes de las arterias cuando es bombeada por el corazón. Puede aparecer hipertensión arterial debido a un aumento del volumen sanguíneo, debido a una alteración renal y una mala regulación del sodio, estando también implicados el hígado y el bazo en el volumen de sangre. También se puede provocar hipertensión arterial debido a un mal estado de las arterias o a la acumulación de calcio en sus paredes. También se produce por la alteración de la vasodilatación y vasoconstricción debida al estrés, al uso de estimulantes o por mala alimentación.

Hay una serie de alimentos que hay que evitar: azucares, alcohol, regaliz, picantes, sodio y los productos que pueden contenerlo como son los embutidos, quesos y conservas.

Puedes sustituir la sal por cantidades moderadas de algas marinas, tamari o miso y agua de mar, o especias (no picantes), hierbas aromáticas y ajo.

Homeopathy 

@LotusOak recomends to Download the First Aid Chart by @JoetteCalabrese

 Homeopathy Years ago as a young mother, I read that deaths in children occurred more often from accidents than illness.
It was a pivotal moment for me.
Fevers don’t kill, I learned, but a head injury could. Chicken pox might be uncomfortable, but it wasn’t going to maim my child like a burn or laceration.
I deduced that there are only so many different kinds of dangers, so to learn which remedies to use ought to be something I could readily accomplish.
Besides, I already knew that it was best to leave a fever alone and how easy it is to reduce chicken pox itching with homeopathy. Thus, I pointed myself in the direction of first-aid study for the next many months.
How freeing!
I set my mind to studying how to treat lacerations, shock, heat stroke, burns, head injuries, even electrocution, using homeopathy. This allowed me to focus my time on what was most valuable in order to become a more effective parent.

RT, Cancer

Síntomas y signos del Cáncer de mama @CancerDotNet

 RT, CancerLos signos y los síntomas que se deben analizar con el médico incluyen:

un bulto que se palpa como un nudo firme o un engrosamiento de la mama o debajo del brazo. Es importante palpar la misma zona de la otra mama para asegurarse de que el cambio no sea parte del tejido mamario sano de esa área.

Cualquier cambio en el tamaño o la forma de la mama.

Secreción del pezón que se produce de forma repentina, contiene sangre o se produce solo en una mama.

Cambios físicos, como pezón invertido hacia dentro o una llaga en la zona del pezón.

Irritación de la piel o cambios en esta, como rugosidades, hoyuelos, escamosidad o pliegues nuevos.

Mamas tibias, enrojecidas e hinchadas, con o sin erupción cutánea con rugosidad que se asemeja a la piel de una naranja, llamada piel de naranja.

Dolor en la mama; particularmente, dolor en la mama que no desaparece. El dolor generalmente no es un síntoma de cáncer de mama, pero debe comunicarse al médico.

Education system

Comprehensive schools: the history

 Education systemRichard Pring and Geoffrey Walford explain why they think comprehensives are worth fighting for.

The idea for the comprehensive school, where children of all backgrounds and abilities would be educated in a single school, goes back to the 1920s. "The idea was there before the war," says Brian Simon, emeritus professor of education at Leicester University. "It had strong proponents. For instance, the London County Council took a decision to go comprehensive when they could back in 1936.''

After the second world war momentum for change grew as parents increasingly revolted against the 11-plus examination. The new professionals had greater expectations for education than could be achieved under a system that divided children at the age of 11, sending one lot to grammar schools from which they could continue to university and beyond, and others to secondary moderns from whence opportunities were severely limited. There was particular concern about the reliability of the 11-plus as a mechanism for categorising children.

At the same time there was increasing criticism of the grammar schools. Working-class children and their parents were alienated by the ethos of such schools. Consciousness was growing about the enormous wastage of ability among working-class children, particularly girls, in the school system.

Antibiotics risks

We All Must Get Smarter About Antibiotics by @CDCgov

 Antibiotics risksGuest Author: Christian John Lillis,
Executive Director, Peggy Lillis Foundation
I had scarlet fever when I was six years old. The infection had me in the hospital for a week, while the doctors struggled to diagnose my illness and then managed my treatment with antibiotics. One of my earliest memories is being shaken awake at least twice a night by a large, looming nurse to take another oral dose of antibiotics.

From the mid-nineteenth century through the Second World War, scarlet fever was a significant cause of childhood death causing upwards of 60,000 deaths at the turn of the century. Though death rates were decreasing throughout the 20th century1, it was the discovery and use of antibiotics that made scarlet fever a manageable illness. Luckily for me, by the time I was diagnosed in 1979, the antibiotic penicillin was widely available. My mother took me home following my week-long stay in the hospital.

Parkinson

Brain cell therapy 'promising' for Parkinson's disease

 ParkinsonScientists believe they have found a way to treat and perhaps reverse Parkinson's disease, by making replacement cells to mend the damaged brain.
They say human brain cells can be coaxed to take over the job of the ones that are destroyed in Parkinson's.
Tests in mice with Parkinson-like symptoms showed that the therapy appeared to ease the condition.
Many more studies are needed before similar tests can begin in people.
Experts say the research published in Nature Biotechnology is hugely promising, although at a very early stage.
The scientists still have to check if the treatment is safe, and whether the converted cells, which started out in life as astrocytes, can truly function like the dopamine-producing neurons lost in Parkinson's. read more in bbc.com

Zika virus

How Zika infects the growing brain. by @harvard

 Zika virusAround the world, hundreds of women infected with the Zika virus have given birth to children suffering from microcephaly or other brain defects, as the virus attacks key cells responsible for generating neurons and building the brain as the embryo develops. Studies have suggested that Zika enters these cells, called neural progenitor cells (NPCs), by grabbing onto a specific protein called AXL on the cell surface. Now, scientists at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) and Novartis have shown that this is not the only route of infection.

The scientists demonstrated that Zika infected NPCs even when the cells did not produce the AXL surface receptor protein that is widely thought to be the main vehicle of entry for the virus.

“Our finding really recalibrates this field of research because it tells us we still have to go and find out how Zika is getting into these cells,” said Kevin Eggan, principal faculty member at HSCI, professor of stem cell and regenerative biology at Harvard University and co-corresponding author on a research paper in the journal Stem Cell Stem.
