Younger People Getting Cancer Due To Obesity
The researches find that the obesity rates around the globe are ballooning - literally! Approximately 1.9 billion adults who are 18 years and older were overweight in 2016, and of these; more than 650 million were obese. The number of obese people has nearly tripled since 1975. Therefore among younger people, the rates of obesity increase uncontrollably. An estimated 340 million children and adolescents between the ages of 5 and 19 years old were overweight or obese in the same year.
Cells Have A Built In Self Destruct Mechanism Strands Of DNA
Healthy cells have a built in self destruct mechanism; Strands of DNA called "telomeres" act as protective caps on the ends of your chromosomes. Each time a cell replicates, telomeres get a little shorter. Think of it like filing your nails with an Emory board after enough filing, you hit your fingertip ouch; In the case of healthy cells, after enough replications, telomeres are "filed" away, leaving bare ends of the chromosomes exposed.
Poor Water Quality Linked To Sugar Drink Consumption
The researches find that the consumption of sugary drinks is common among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander infants and toddlers, and it could be down to water quality, according to a study from The Australian National University (ANU). Therefore Lead author, Dr. Katie Thurber, says there are clear opportunities to improve nutrition for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, as well as non-Indigenous children, across Australia. But "Families living in regional and remote settings have expressed concern about the safety and quality of drinking water," said Dr. Thurber, from the Research School of Population Health.
Burst Firings Appeared In The Culturing SCN Slice Of Fetal Mice
The study finding that burst firings of 35–80 Hz appeared in the culturing SCN slice of fetal mice; and obscured the circadian firing rhythm when GABA signaling was genetically or pharmacologically disrupted. Calcium spikes, which synchronizing with burst firings; were also observing in GABA-deficient SCN. Researchers discover role of GABA neurons in the central circadian clock.
Hemophilia Much More Prevalent Than Previously Thought
The study find that the inherited bleeding disorder of hemophilia, and 418,000 of those have a severe version of the mostly undiagnosed disease, says a new study led by McMaster University researchers. This is three times what is previously know. Only 400,000 people globally are estimated to have the disorder which is cause by a defect in the F8 or F9 gene which encodes instructions for making the factor proteins that helps blood clot. For those with ; lack of treatment leads to chronic and disabling joint disease; while bleeding into organs and brain hemorrhages can lead to disability and death.
