AIDS-Free World in Front of Eyes

Good news for humanity. Scientists propose a radical way to combat the disease, with anti-retroviral drug treatment that can eradicate AIDS within 40 years.

An aggressive program to prescribe anti-retroviral treatment (ART) in HIV-infected everyone, could stop all new infections in five years and finally delete the epidemic. Thus expressed Dr Brian Williams of the Center for Epidemiological Modelling and Analysis in South Africa, yesterday.

Dr Williams is part of the body of experts who believe that the development of anti-HIV drugs is probably the best hope for preventing and even eliminating the spread of AIDS. Instead he rejected the option to wait which was considered an effective vaccine development, or just rely on people to change their sexual lifestyle.

The idea will be tested next year, started a controlled clinical trial involving thousands of people who lived in a section of South Africans with HIV and AIDS incidence is high. Dr Williams said that effort would be followed by similar experiments in the United States, where HIV is rampant in some cities.

"Our fastest expectancy using ART not only to save lives, but also to reduce HIV transmission. I believe if we use an effective antiretroviral drug, can stop the spread of HIV in five years," said Dr Williams.

"ART lets stop the spread of HIV and AIDS, AIDS related sufferers reduce by half in the past 10 years and eliminate the infection within 40 years," he told the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Diego, California.

Anti-retroviral drugs dramatically lower the concentration of HIV in a person's blood stream, in addition to protecting against AIDS patients. The drug significantly reduce transmission among individuals.

Dr Williams and his supporters believe, if an infected person has enough to be treated, will decrease the infection rate so that the epidemic will die. He believes AIDS can be effectively abolished in the middle of this century.

"The problem is that we use the drugs to save lives, but did not use to stop the contagion," said Dr Williams.

Blocking transmission can only be done with extensive testing followed by rapid treatment using anti-retroviral drugs for those who were found HIV positive.

Do not Do It at the Gym!

Who wants to waste time doing sports that are not effective and full of risk? Certainly not you. So, throw five movements "in vain" and potentially provide the following injury.

1. Using the "lat pull-down"
(fitness equipment shaped pulley)
Error: Interestingly in the back of the head.

Only someone who has a very flexible shoulder joints are capable of making their spine straight enough to do this exercise correctly. If we are wrong and do it repeatedly, then the inter-shoulder impingement can no longer inevitable. Or even worse, it could lead to a torn rotator cuff (muscles and tendons that hold the upper arm at the shoulder joint). When the handle of the hand touching the back of the neck bone, this condition can result in injury to the cervical vertebrae (neck vertebrae).

Safer mode: When using the pull-down menu, try leaning the body a few degrees to the rear. Handheld wand over our shoulder width, then bring the stick down in front of the body until parallel to the breastbone. Lower the shoulder blades together. Hold the abdomen to stabilize the body. Lat pull-down tool is useful to train your upper back muscles.

2. When conducting "military press" (lifting weights to train the shoulder muscles)
Error: Lifting in the back of the head.

Habit of lifting weights or barbell at the back of our heads would cause the same problem as that posed by the lat pulldown device if it is done in the back of our heads.

Safe mode: When doing military press, try to lift weights and barbells in front of our heads. Standing with lean weight is not lower than the collarbone, and make sure we keep the upper body upright. This exercise can also be done while sitting, as long as we sat up and put back on the back of the chair. Maintain the natural curve of our spine, and press your back muscles back and buttocks to the chair.

3. When lifting weights
Error: Lifting burden under the chin.

Never load or lifting weights under our chins. Why? This action will push the muscles in the shoulder area.

Safe way: Compared to the appointment up to the chin, better train our shoulders to lift the load toward the front or to the outer side of our body.

4. Doing "lying leg press"
Error: we are too deep knee bend.

When did lying leg press, we'll sit leaned back and put a foot on the board with the ballast. Next, we will press the board to go up and down his back, with the aim of training the muscle quadriceps (front thigh), hamstring (rear thigh), and buttocks. However, there will be a problem when we bend the knee in excess. This condition will injure your back and knees.

Safe way: if we want to do this exercise, then defend our position not to lift your buttocks from the exercise machine. Avoid bending the knee angle exceeding 90 degrees.

5. The use of cardio machines
Error: The gripping too hard and relying on cardio machines.

Bow or grip too hard armrest will only affect the shape of our bodies and disrupt the body's alignment position. The result, it affects the spine, shoulders and elbows.

Safe way: Do not set too high cardio machines footing as this would require us to hold the machine too fast. Just use the normal setting so that we can hold a light. To get a more challenging exercise, we can hold on one hand lightly. Then, change into other hands regularly. A good form of exercise can protect us from injury and to maximize our workout.

Let's Stimulate the Brain Potential

Often a child who has encountered many hours reading notes or textbooks to school but none of the sentences could be memorized. There is also a visible sitting calm in class listening to teachers' explanations, but after finishing the lesson there is no recall at all that explained everything from the beginning was the teacher.

How did it happen? One is because learning the wrong way. According to Bobby Hartanto, M. Psi, an expert in the field of human resources, many teachers and parents who do not understand the child's learning style.

"Some people are easier to remember when learning materials provided through the pictures, there are also more like to listen to, and there is a passing movement. Beda learning styles, different well stimulation," he said in a seminar on child growth held by the Frisian flag in Jakarta (22/7).

For children who have auditory learning styles, children old enough to catch the lesson by listening to teacher explanations. But children need the type of visual display pictures. In contrast with the child's kinesthetic types that require movement or palpation.

"Actually it would be better if all aspects are used. Because the more varitif way, the easier child to remember material presented," he explained.

Another thing to note is the parents and educators understand how the brain works. "The human brain loves color and image. That's why a picture will be significantly more than 1000 words," he explained.

To convey a message or a specific value, Bobby suggested that given in the form of posters and colorful picture. For example to convey about the culture of queuing, honesty, and so forth.

Research shows, someone who is good stimulation, the brain more closely than people who rarely stimulated. "Density is related to the added connections between brain cells," says Bobby.

The formation of new habits will form new connections, while the repetition of the old cell will strengthen the connection. "Give children a variety of stimulation and do repetitions as often as possible in order to continue to form connections between brain cells," he said.

Certainly no less important to create an enjoyable learning atmosphere and does not cause stress in children. Do it outside of the classroom learning activities, group discussions, games interesting, and many other ways that can dig interests of the children.[]

Leftover food (especially sugar) are left on the sidelines of the teeth will stimulate growth of Mutans streptococci bacteria that colonies growing on the layer of dental plaque. The bacteria can ferment the sugar left on the teeth and produce acid compound which lowers the pH of the mouth to less than 5.5. Acid compound layer will erode tooth enamel, forming a hole in the tooth surface.

Xylitol is a positive impact on dental health, because it can inhibit the growth and metabolism of dental plaque formation by the bacteria Streptococcus Mutans. Xylitol is believed to support the process re-mineralization on dental caries. This was stated by Prof. Jason Tanzer, head of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine.

Xylitol is considered as a tooth-friendly sweeteners. It is so called not only because xylitol prevents tooth decay by replacing the role of regular sugar, but also because it can repair minor damage to dental caries.

In addition, xylitol can not be fermented acidic compounds are formed so as not to cause tooth decay. Xylitol mouth guard pH remained stable at neutral pH (around 7) so that it can prevent tooth decay and stimulate production of saliva which is rich in calcium to speed up the process of reshaping teeth mineral layer.

Chrysophyllum also rich in vitamin C, which is 14.7 mg/100 g. Consumption of 100 grams of brown can meet 24.5 percent of the body's need for vitamin C every day. Vitamin C can react with a variety of minerals in the body. Vitamin C plays an important role in the metabolism of copper.

In addition, consumption of adequate amounts of vitamin C can help increase iron absorption. Vitamin C can also interact with a variety of other vitamins such as vitamin E which functions as an antioxidant.

Sapodilla fruits also contain folic acid, 14 g. mkg/100 Folic acid is needed for the body's red blood cell formation. Folic acid also helps prevent the formation of homocysteine which is very harmful for health.

Other vitamins are also contained in brown fruit is: riboflavin, niacin, B6, and vitamin A. While it can be used as a source of vitamins and minerals, sapodilla should not be given to infants because of the sap are feared to disturb the digestive tract.

Sapodilla fruit also contains a lot of sugar so good for use as an energy source. However, this fruit is not recommended for people with diabetes mellitus because it can improve blood sugar levels quickly.

Soft and Smooth

Chrysophyllum who are ready to eat is brown. Raw fruit is not good to eat because of the hard. Bitter chocolate and caused by high tannin content and caustic. Sapodilla sapodilla good quality is soft and dark brown.

Shape and magnitude of the problem is not a problem, the most important skin should be smooth. Do not choose an existing sapodilla wounds, scratches, or even the slightest hole. Also, do not choose that have brown marks on the leather sap. Chrysophyllum whose skin had flesh bottom of the defect or faulty hardware.

Ripe fruit can be stored at low temperatures to prolong shelf life. Ripe fruit is stored at a temperature of 0 degrees celsius can last 12-13 days. Unripe fruit when stored at a temperature of 15 degrees celsius can survive in good condition for 17 days. Crude sapodilla fruit stored at lower temperatures more than 10 days will not mature normally.

To stimulate so precocious, sapodilla need diperam, after washing to remove dead skin. There are several ways of curing. The fruit is placed in a closed container (eg in the chest or bag) for a few days. However, how this will make the fruit ripening is not ripe at the same time. In order to get the ripe sapodilla simultaneously, fruit put in place a sealed, then given a carbide or smoked.

Sapodilla fruit is very susceptible to microbial contamination due to moisture content and high nutrients. Geotrichum candidum, Cladosporum oxysporium, and Penicillium italicum are examples of microbes that are often found on the fruit brown.

To keep the ripe sapodilla not attacked microbial pathogens, we recommend using the fungicide Benlate. Treatment naturally, without using chemicals, it was hard to get the best results. Therefore, to maintain the security, sapodilla fruit should be washed before being eaten.

Beware of Eye Disorders In Children

Can babies get cataracts? Apparently, a lot of things to note about the eyes of infants and children. In fact, premature birth, can cause retinal damage that leads to blindness.

Make no mistake, eye disorders in children it could happen since he was in the womb! Pregnant women (especially the young age of pregnancy) who suffered Rubella aka German measles, or other viruses, can give birth to an infant with cataracts. What sign? "From birth, his eyes cloudy and white lens," explained Dr. Abdul Manan, Ginting, Sp.M, eye specialists from the Jakarta Eye Center.

No other way, before the age of three months, the child should be operated so that the retina can still grow nicely. "Before three months, right, we already know the heart and brain development is good. If after that, although the cataract removed, replaced by new lenses, and its size became zero, still less because the retina does not develop," Ginting said, adding, babies born do not always have normal vision.

Entering the age of 3 months to 2 years, baby vision develops rapidly. "In children with adequate intelligence, the ability to see the age of 2 years was nearing 100 percent. That's why, cataract surgery should not be more than 3 months of age," Ginting suggestions.

Rubella In addition, pregnant women, patients with Toxoplasma can also bring children with few problems. In addition to brain and muscle disorders, as well as eye. Among others, the infection in the retina so that the child was born with very bad eyesight. Although treated too, because the already damaged retina, vision will not recover.


Difficulties during birth will also need to beware. The problem could have a baby out through the vagina with the infected eye conditions. Generally occurs in infants whose mothers suffered from venereal disease gonorrhea (GO).

The problem, said Ginting, GO is very easy to grow in the eye. Second day after birth, the baby's eyes will be quite a lot of pus. "If allowed, could be blind within two three weeks," he said, adding, usually in a good hospital, the eyes of all infants born to direct antibacterial drops.

Herpes is a disease that can be transmitted mother to child during normal deliveries. If during examination of the genital area is known in the prospective mother have the signs of herpes infection, doctors can provide treatment. "With the record, still a long delivery time. If it is severe, with forced labor performed without a vaginal operative action," explained the doctor who is also Chairman of Bank Mata of Indonesia.


Which is also subject to high risk eye disease is a baby who was born premature. Moreover, when the weight is less than 1 kg. When inserted into an incubator, premature baby will get more oxygen than usual. Well, this is the excess oxygen can cause retinal damage baby (aka retinapathy of prematurity retinal damage caused by premature).

"That's why, children born prematurely had to be examined retinas so that if there are signs of abnormalities or new network appears in the retina due to oxygen, could be shooting a laser beam to tissue death and the child was saved from blindness," Ginting said.

The first thing to do after completion in incubator child is brought to an ophthalmologist who has a complete facility for the examination of the retina.

"Come, let his eyes healthy eating carrots!" So, our advice, the little one? Though, as described Ginting, carrots are not always good for the eyes. "If the poor child's eye health, consumption of carrots will actually exacerbate the more eyes."

Carrots do contain vitamin A, but not a ready to use the alias provitamin A. In order to become vitamin A, carrots must be modified first by using carbohydrates, vitamin B complex, and so forth. "Because he's taking other substances. Eye condition even worse. Hence, the carrot was not advisable."

Instead of carrots, Ginting recommends eating chicken or fish liver which clearly contains vitamins A ready to use. Eggs and palm oil also contains vitamin A. "In order for maximal growth of children's eye health, provide lots of vitamin A when children ages 0 to 5 years."

Various kinds of milk, you must know

Liquid milk last longer if kept in good packaging.
Currently on the market has been circulating a variety of liquid milk. Some labeling of fresh milk, pasteurized milk, sterilized milk or UHT milk (Ultra High Temperature). You know, all types of milk have the same nutritional content as has been formulated with fresh milk. But compared to fresh milk, milk which has undergone various processing this has advantages, namely a longer shelf life.


- Fresh milk is milk from cows, buffalo, horses, goats or sheep are healthy and not mixed colostrum.

- Terms of fresh milk is good: containing not less than 3.25 percent milk fat and 8.25 percent solids not fat.

- Not containing added water, food additives and antibiotics, and have not experienced a change of color, odor and viscosity.

- Has the best flavor than fresh milk that has been processed for fatty acid content of milk (butyric acid) is still good.

- To secure food, fresh milk should be drunk directly processed first. How, by heating until the temperature reaches 70ú80 degrees Celsius for 50-10 minutes. So, do not boil the milk so that the emulsion is not broken.

- Fresh milk that has been processed and should immediately be taken out immediately. When stored at room temperature is feared that there are microbes in the air will damage the milk. Period store at room temperature no more than two hours.

- When stored in the refrigerator, chances are able to survive for 12 hours. But try to use containers that have been sterilized (can use a glass or glass bottle that has been boiled).

- Microbes in the air will contaminate the fresh milk that has been milked. This is because the conditions of air temperature and humidity in Indonesia is high (average 28 ° - 30 ° C).

MILK UHT (Ultra High Temperature)

- Fresh milk or milk reconstitution or recombination of sterilized milk at a temperature of not less than 135 ° C for 2 seconds and immediately packed in sterile packaging.

- Heating with temperatures reaching 135 ° C was able to kill the bacteria that exist.

- Taste the milk was not very good because it has been through the process of heating with high temperature.

- The advantage of this process does not eliminate micro-nutrient content, such as vitamins and minerals.

- Content of nutrients has been formulated to resemble fresh milk and powdered infant formula. It implies no less than 3.25 percent milk fat and 8.25 percent solids not fat.

- Can be stored at room temperature.

- When storage reaches six months to a year for an unopened package.


Some milk producers out of milk products "energy supplement". In calories, protein, and minerals are higher than any other formula. As a result, the energy that went into the child's body was believed to be automatically higher. In addition, this type of milk is more easily absorbed by the digestive tract because of the fat composition in the form MCT (medium chain triglycerides),. In fact, the composition of amino acids in it any terkadung complete pertained to perform protein synthesis.

Normally, milk is considered as an additional or supplementary menu. But considering its nutritional content is very complete, milk may be regarded as an addition to this energy as a substitute for food. Still does not mean the child is fed only and do not need to eat other foods.

Milk energy enhancer should be given to children belonging to poor appetite or low. But again, it would be nice if parents first consult with a pediatrician or a child nutritionist to find out what causes bad little appetite. Is it because there are medical disorders or psychological factors, such as bored with the menu-the food and atmosphere that's unpleasant to eat.

Pasteurized milk

Pasteurized milk is milk that is heated by high-temperature short-time method or the method of holding and immediately packed in sterile packaging. In addition to fresh milk, the process of preservation by pasteurization applied also to the reconstitution of milk and milk recombination. Reconstitution of milk is the milk prepared with the addition of liquid water on fatty milk powder (full cream), or powdered skim milk, or low-fat milk powder. While milk is recombined liquid milk produced from a mixture of components of milk (skim milk, cream) and water.

- Temperature during heating reached 65 ° C to 80 ° C in order to kill bacteria that cause disease.

- Nutrient content of pasteurized milk has been formulated with fresh milk and powdered infant formula. Milk fat content of not less than 3.25 percent and 8.25 percent solids not fat.

- Taste the milk is still good because it does not go through the process of heating is high.

- The shelf between 5-7 days at 4 ° C or in refrigerator.

Sweetened condensed milk

- Products sweetened condensed milk is obtained by eliminating some of the water through evaporation (evaporation) in order to obtain a certain thickness.

- Content of different nutrients than fresh milk. Even a lower vitamin content when compared with fresh milk. This type of milk is not intended to fulfill the perfect pattern of four healthy 5. More widely used as a cooking ingredient mixture.

- Sugar and fat content is very high, so is not suitable given to infants.

- This product can be classed as a product with a long expiration date because of the high sugar content that can prevent microbial growth. Unopened packaging survived up to two years. While the packaging has been opened can only survive approximately two months, or even when stored in refrigerator.

Avoid Early Aging, Consumption of vitamin D

Los Angeles - Want to avoid premature aging? Want to be free of dementia and Alzheimer's? Easy, as long as you regularly consume vitamin D. This is based on research results.

HealtyDay News preach, physical activity and adequate levels of vitamin D can reduce the risk of cognitive decline and dementia. Long-term study of it has been presented at the International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease in Hawaii, Sunday (11 / 7) then.

In one study, researchers analyzed data from more than 1,200 people in the 1970s who enrolled in the Framingham Study. Research into the people in the town of Framingham, Mass., as a respondent, since 1948, analyzes the heart health and cognitive health.

Physical activity level of the 1200 participants assessed at 1986-1987. More than two decades later, 242 participants suffering from dementia, including 193 patients with Alzheimer's.

They are conservative with the number of high activity has around 40% to avoid a risk of getting various types of dementia. People with the lowest levels of physical activity, 45% more likely to be attacked by all types of dementia, than those who do most exercises. This is a very dominant male.

"This is the first study involving a large group of individuals for a long time. This shows that to reduce the risk of dementia may be one additional benefits to maintain at least moderate physical activity. Even for the eighth decade of life," said study author Dr. Zaldy Tan, from Brigham and Women's Hospital, VA Boston and Harvard Medical School in a news release the Alzheimer's Association.

A second study found an association between vitamin D deficiency and increased risk of cognitive decline and dementia later in life. Researchers in the British Isles analyzed data from 3325 people aged 65 years.

Vitamin D levels were measured based on blood samples from participants and compared with their activity on cognitive function measures. Tests performed included tests of memory, orientation in space and time, and the ability to sustain attention. Those who achieve only 10% were classified as cognitively impaired.

This study also found that the risk of cognitive impairment was 42% higher in people who lack vitamin D. And, 394% higher for those with severe deficiency of vitamin D.

"It seems that the increase in the level of cognitive impairment, lack of vitamin D. This is consistent with the findings of previous European studies. Given that vitamin D deficiency and dementia is a common thing in the world. This is really alarming," said study author David Llewellyn, from the University of Exeter Peninsula Medical School.

In fact, it's skin naturally produces vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. However, most adults and older in the United States less levels of vitamin D because their skin is less efficient in producing vitamin D due to lack of sunlight.

"Vitamin D supplements have been proven to be a safe, cheap and effective way to treat deficiencies. However, some foods contain vitamin D supplementation and the level in the U.S. today is not adequate. Further research is needed to determine whether vitamin D supplementation has the potential disruption dementia therapy, "said Llewellyn.

Previous research has pointed to a number of factors that may be associated with cognitive decline and Alzheimer's. Especially cardiovascular risk factors, said William Thiès, medical officer at the Alzheimer's Association.

He added, "Alzheimer's Association and others have repeatedly called for the long term, more research studies to clarify the major role these factors play cause of the aging brain. Some of the first report of this type in Alzheimer's, and that encourages, but there has been no definitive evidence. " [Mor]

Discovered, AIDS Vaccine on ODHA Body

Discovered, AIDS Vaccine on ODHA Body

RESEARCHER United a step closer to developing a vaccine against the deadly AIDS virus. They found antibodies that can kill 91 percent of the HIV virus.

Scientists have found three powerful antibodies in the cell body of a male African-American gay 60-year-old who was called Donor 45. Even one of them is the antibodies that neutralize more than 91 percent of the HIV virus. The male body makes antibodies naturally. Thus okezone receive from NY Daily News, Monday (07/12/2010).
In the case of 45 donors - the antibody does not save themselves from contracting HIV - researchers filter out approximately 25 million cells to find dozens of cells that later can produce a powerful antibody. Men are most likely already infected with the HIV virus before the body began to produce antibodies. Until now, he is still alive, and has been diagnosed with HIV for 20 years at the time of his blood taken.

Researchers wishing to make a vaccine that will allow everyone to create a body similar antibodies Donor 45. This research is expected to pave the way to make vaccines that are not only effective against the AIDS virus, but also other viral diseases, and has become an important part of AIDS research.

Speaking of the vaccine, Gary Nabel, Vaccine Research Center Director at the National Institute of Allergy and Infections Disease who also led the research said, "It would take hard work. We'll be here for a while (before the vaccine showed a clear benefit)."

Last year, demonstrated the effectiveness of the first HIV vaccine proved disappointing. Following the next vaccine research in Thailand which, according to statistics reached a successful range of up to 30 percent. But, the discovery of this new antibody can produce a more promising treatment.

"Antibodies are attached to the virus that has not changed, and this explains why the virus can neutralize different strains of HIV is deadly," said Dr. John Mascola, one of the researchers.

Prepare antibody discovery became effective HIV vaccine research will be difficult, because researchers must start from an important part of the virus where antibodies attached to it. Then, design a vaccine using the virus to stimulate the body to make antibodies like those found in donor 45.

Inventions described in the online edition of the journal Science, was discovered just days before the International AIDS Conference in Vienna scheduled to be held July 18 to 23, 2010. This research is expected to be the focus of the meeting given the number of people living with HIV / AIDS (PLWHA) growing.

Cheap Ways Against Cancer and Stroke

Do not take for granted vegetables, bean sprouts or sprouts. Despite the small shapes, such vegetables have compounds that cell renewal is very useful for protecting the body from a stroke, heart attack and cancer. Sprouts contain antioxidant compounds complete with exceptional protection force, especially vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E. However, experts assert, Eat raw bean sprouts in a state, while its substance modifier still intact. Can be eaten as a salad, or drunk as juice. If cooked, pan-fried or steamed better moment. If to be boiled, such as cooked vegetable soups, bean sprouts enter lifted just before cooking. In this way, vitamin C and enzymes that damage is estimated that only 20 percent. If boiled longer, the damage could reach at least 60 percent.

Results of research James Duke, PhD, botanist from the United States Department of Agriculture shows, any kind of good vegetable sprouts, mung bean sprouts, soy sprouts, alfalfa sprouts and other types of sprouts contain a lot of fitokimiawi efficacious compounds. One of them kanavanin, the type of amino acid arginine materials were stored in most alfalfa sprouts. Kanavanin able to stifle the seeds of cancer, leukemia, colon and pancreas. Natural estrogens contained in the same function with estrogensintesis sprouts, but that is without side effects.

Estrogen in the bean sprouts can significantly increase bone density and composition, as well as mencegahrapuh bones (osteoporosis). Diligent eating sprouts help women avoid breast cancer, impending menstruation disorders, complaints hot streak on pramenopause and disorders caused by menopause. When the seeds and nuts that in a seedling, in general, its levels rise 450 per cent saponin, Saponin most commonly found in alfalfa sprouts.

The people with risk of stroke and heart attack caused by soaring blood lipid levels are encouraged to eat more sprouts. Saponin in the sprouts will be poured LDL fats, without disturbing the good HDL fats. After going through a number of experiments on animals, known saponin in the bean sprouts can awaken the immune system, by boosting the activity of natural paralytic cells, especially T-lymphocyte cells and interferon. In addition to DNA loaded, solid sprouts powerful antioxidant substances that fortify the body's cells from free radical destruction of DNA. Double protection strengthens the conclusion that sprouts are vegetables that make us "born again" to be young.

While rich in soy bean sprouts anticancer compound genistein. Different from other anticancer compounds, genistein work more effectively when cancer has started to sprout seeds. Because at that moment that genistein will work actively disrupt the food supply for the cancer cells so they eventually die. However, Duke warned, should women with breast cancer patients who are undergoing treatment with tamoxifen therapy to limit the consumption of sprouts, especially that of crude. Phytoestrogen compounds in Brussels sprouts may reduce tamoxifen work. That is, bean sprouts need only be restricted if we suffer the type of tumor or cancer associated with estrogen.

Sprouts are also good for someone to get the nutrition nuts without making it bloated. In some people, eating nuts makes the stomach feel bloated. That caused the stomach is sensitive to the oligosaccharide-one type of complex carbohydrates in beans. Creating germinated nuts will describe 90 percent of oligosaccharide chains into simple carbohydrates. So that the compound is easily absorbed by the body without producing gas. Because it contains lots of fiber and water, sprouts help drain sewage in the large intestine. It becomes a double strength sprouts in the fight against cancer. By pushing dirt immediately left colon, there was no toxic substances in sewage that can be absorbed by the body. It prevents stacking toxic substances, which can stimulate the blossoming seed of cancer.

Track the history of China's Physician Prescription sprouts, we must look back 5000 years. According to the publication of the International Sprout growers Association (sprouts farmer associations worldwide), bean sprouts at that time the doctors had prescribed to China, both as a health food or medicine. Sailors master 'James Cook', in his exploration from Europe to New Zealand for three years, bringing food supplies antiskorbut, so that the crewmen are not subject to gum inflammation and infectious diseases.

In addition to lemons, which was then believed to be reliable sources of vitamin C, Cook bring seeds and nuts. Once created sprouts, bean sprouts was the only fresh vegetables they eat during the voyage. So successful fight gingivitis Cook who was commonly experienced by sailors, not just orange services, because the sprouts actually stored more vitamin C.

Sprouts was praised as the only vegetables most practical. Can be harvested quickly, in just 3-5 days after planting. Can be grown all year round in all weathers, even in winter though. Does not require the planting of land, does not even need sunlight. Vitamin C content was so abundant. Ready to be cooked without the need to cut and leave no plague waste. I why, according to Dr Clive M McKay, professor of nutrition from CornellUniversity, sprouts are the only vegetables that are most widely grown and eaten during world war II.

Research on soybean sprouts by McKay, involving five universities in America, namely Cornell, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Yale and McGill University, which germinated able to contain B-complex vitamin content of soybeans, so the amount is reduced. Amazingly, germinated sprouts will make inflated amount as much as 300 percent of vitamin A and vitamin C to 500-600 percent. They also found that making a bean sprout germination has changed the carbohydrates into simple sugars, which are easily digested and absorbed by the body. Though grown in the dark, alfalfa sprouts rich in chlorophyll more than celery, 'bokcoi' and 'greens. Protein in alfalfa sprouts, bean sprouts and bean sprouts sunflower seeds radis average 4 percent, while only 3 percent in lettuce, fresh cow's milk is only 3.2 percent. In fact, the protein content in soybean sprouts can reach 28 percent.

Could 'Swine Flu Risk' Genetic Related?

Jakarta, pandemic influenza A (H1N1) or also known as swine flu worldwide and jerk reminiscent of a similar pandemic in 1918, where millions of people die from flu. Even until today, although there is a trend decline in the number of new cases, this pandemic has not been completed in total.

In the world, as many as 214 countries spread across all continents participate affected, with more than 18.000 deaths (WHO data June 13, 2010). In Asia, the pandemic is still actively circulating in Malaysia and Singapore with the downward trend.

In Indonesia alone, although the June 13, 2010 WHO report mentions the lack of new transmission activities in Indonesia during the month of June 2010, has occurred despite the accumulation of more than 1000 transmission (MOH Report August 23, 2009) with five deaths.

In today's modern society, it is very difficult to completely avoid exposure to the virus A (H1N1). Even restrictions on travel (travel restriction) undoubtedly a benefit as an effective method to stem this pandemic.

Most people would never exposed to this virus, with rates varying exposure. But we do not see relative fantastic figures on the number of people infected. Meanwhile, among people infected with the disease only slightly worse until a crisis stage.

Loius Pasteur, one of the foundation stone of the science of microbiology, admitted that the most important question that can not be answered (in his time) by the infectious disease research is that there is variability in the level of exceptional severity of infection among people infected by the same microorganism.

Today people understand that the difference in the level of variability in the severity of the infection was caused by the difference of one level of immunity. But why does this happen? Why do people have different levels of immune response?

Composition and variation of genetic material is one answer. Our genetic material, with different levels, to determine how much risk you are infected, how severe illness if infected, and even what the most appropriate treatment to prevent the development of disease severity.

This is called genetic susceptibility to infection (genetic susceptibility to infection). Genetic variation can involve only one gene (monogenic), but can also be many genes (polygenic).

Human genetic susceptibility to various infections

Genetic variations that determine differences in susceptibility to infectious diseases such as malaria, HIV / AIDS and tuberculosis has been studied enough.

Best known example is how people with various disorders of red blood cells such as sickle cell disease (sickle-cell disease) and thalassemia have immunity against malaria infection.

Human genetic susceptibility to influenza A (H1N1)

Is pandemic A (H1N1) also shows the vulnerability that is influenced by genetic factors? There is no definitive answer to this question. But there are many similar research to other strains of flu virus are showing vulnerability.

A research report published in 2008 showed that the population of Utah (USA) had a risk of increased deaths from flu among people who have a kinship relationship (far or near). This shows the contribution of genetic factors.

Another more recent research (2009) in rats showed that a large contribution from genetic factors to infections of influenza A, a class where the H1N1 strain of influenza virus are clustered.

Although there are many advances in influenza research, there has been no recent studies on human susceptibility to infections of influenza A (H1N1). The evidence obtained so far are all from animals. This is understandable because many non-genetic factors also play a role in human susceptibility to infection, such as nutrition, lifestyle, exposure to certain drugs, exposure to other infectious agents and others.

These factors are non-genetic, complicate the study of genetic susceptibility to infection, because they interact with genetic factors in causing a certain level of vulnerability. Meanwhile, in animals of this interaction is more easily controlled.

What needs to be done? Need for multi-center research

It is very possible that the pandemic A (H1N1) that occurred when this will happen again periodically, along with its potential to mutate into new strains with unknown levels of virulence.

Required knowledge of specific genes that contribute to the risk of infection A (H1N1) to enhance efforts toward infection prevention and treatment of healthy people who are sick.

These studies on genetic susceptibility to be followed by research that studies how genetic factors that contribute to the effectiveness and safety prevention efforts (ranging from vaccines to simply wash their hands), progression of disease and the efficacy and safety of current treatment operational.

Attention to ethnic variations also need to be emphasized, since a lot of evidence showing the influence of genetic differences among different ethnic-ethnic.

The factors of non-genetic, as noted above, in the human population can not be avoided. By nature, the human population genetic factors and non-genetic exist and interact with each other.

Therefore, studies on humans needs to be done with attention to these factors. In this case, it is very important to start identifying the various factors secara existing in the human population, and then monitored throughout the research goes. Thus, their conclusions must be carefully made in the limited context of the factors involved.

In the last decade, biology researchers witnessed remarkable progress in understanding the role of genetic factors in many diseases that attack humans, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, allergies, schizophrenia, and others.

True, that so many questions remain a mystery. However it should also recognized that now seems obvious candidate genes that play a role in the occurrence of the above diseases.

Many of the findings of the present research was born from the Genome-wide association studies (GWAS), where a large number of human genetic variations can be analyzed simultaneously in a population sample of men who very much.

Recent advances in the analysis of genetic variation is called the Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), which has the ability to identify the entire three billion nucleotides in the human genome array with a count of only a few weeks and the cost is relatively cheap.

Both this relatively new method can greatly assist researchers in analyzing the complexity of the genetic factors contributing to various diseases, including susceptibility to infection of A (H1N1).

Attempts integrated research needs to be done to coordinate the resources available for this purpose.

Considering the health effects
community, an effort spearheaded by the cooperation necessary coordinative MOH, LIPI and various universities.

Diabetic Breakfast Ideas

Diabetic Breakfast Ideas Assuming that happen to be diagnosed with diabetes, must be very disciplined with the foods you eat. It is considered that the conclusion of a diabetic menu clean and healthy is important to you, but also because you must choose the right foods to curb diabetes adapted as best as possible and take into account, the food you eat should be protected of long-term damage done by diabetes - that antioxidants that low GI foods.

Maintain strict control of these criteria, it is important to carefully choose their dishes, especially breakfast, because it is one of the most important meals of the day. In addition to diabetes breakfast, should emphasize the preservation of the highest values ​​of fitness and wellness, apart from typical examinations to maintain total control of diabetes.

He came to breakfast with diabetes, may be surprising for you to keep in mind that food breakfast diabetic breakfast menu for diabetes can be easily created good and exciting. It also indicates that breakfast recipes diabetics are more troublesome, as there may be tried in the past.

Nutritious breakfasts with diabetes are achievable if you can add your personal touch and an artistic style to be a little different.
Diabetic Breakfast Ideas
Breakfast is recommended for diabetics:

The first and most important thing to remember is that food for diabetics should be "low glycemic index." This indicates that the Revenue diabetes should include foods that do not raise blood glucose quickly and really should be kept low blood sugar level for many hours. It should be noted here that the amino acids have a distinct advantage over processed grains to maintain the level of blood sugar constant. Therefore, the right grain for a person with diabetes would certainly whole-grain barley, oats and whole grain rye to name a few.

Diabetes good breakfast idea also may contain peanuts, tomatoes, blueberries, channels of low-fat cheese and apples, bananas, peaches, etc, but the proportions of reality should be advised and managed with a licensed physician.

Selection of real estate for diabetic food for breakfast:

  1. Diabetic Lunch Menu # 1: Find a single slice of bread that could be grilled to your liking. Apply a teaspoon of margarine on bread, you can put a cup of egg substitute or cheese on toast.
