Sleep Disturbance as Risk of Stroke

Jakarta, Sleep disturbance is one of the most common complaints found in patients who visit doctors. It is estimated that each year 20% -40% of adults have difficulty sleeping and 17% of them experienced serious problems.

Prevalence of sleep disorders each year tend to increase, it is also in accordance with increasing age and various causes. Research shows that sleep disorders increase the incidence of various diseases kardioserebrovaskuler. This is mainly associated with breathing disorders during sleep (sleep disordered breathing).

Impaired breathing during sleep

There are 2 kinds of breathing disorders during sleep patterns, namely Hypoapnea and Apnea. Hypoapnea narrowing of the airways characterized by 50% -80% for more than 10 seconds and a decline in oxygen saturation of more than 3%.

While sleep apnea is characterized by the narrowing of the airways more than 80% for more than 10 seconds and a decline in oxygen saturation of more than 3%.

There are three types of sleep apnea, which is central sleep apnea, upper airway obstructive apnea and a mixture of both.

Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder that occurs during sleep, which lasted for more than 10 seconds. It is said pathological sleep apnea if patients experienced episodes of apnea at least five times in one hour or 30 episodes of apnea during the night. During this periodic chest and abdominal wall movement is very dominant.

Central apnea often occurs in the elderly, characterized by intermittent reduction in the ability of respiration due to reduced oxygen saturation. Central apnea is characterized by a cessation of airflow and respiratory effort periodically during sleep, so that movement of chest and abdominal wall disappeared. It is possible damage to the brain stem or hypercapnia.

Respiratory illness (upper airway obstructive) during sleep characterized by increased respiration during apnea, increased effort chest and abdominal wall muscles with the aim of forcing air in through the obstruction. This disorder is more severe when you enter the REM phase. Respiratory disorders are characterized by gasping for breath or snoring during sleep.

Snoring is a sound lasts 3-6 times and then disappear and repeat every 20-50 seconds. Apnea attack when the patient does not snore. As a result of hypoxia or hipercapnea, causing more active respiration activated by the formation retikularis and medullary respiratory center, with the result that the patient is awake and respiration returned to normal in a reflex.

Whether the central or obstructive apnea, patients are often awakened repeatedly at night, which is sometimes difficult to fall asleep again. This disorder is often characterized by head pain or unpleasant feelings in the morning. In children with frequent respiratory tract congenital disorders. In the adult airway obstruction septal defect, hypothyroidism, or bradycardia, heart problems, hypertension, and stroke.

OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) and stroke

Obstructive sleep disorder is one form of a new risk factor for stroke. Recent studies Drager (2007) showed no increased risk of stroke by 2.52 times in patients with sleep apnea. It is also associated with increased risk of hypertension in patients with OSA.

OSA is often found in people with stroke who managed to live, as much as 63% of those who survive, having this disorder. More and more evidence that has shown a causal relationship between sleep apnea and stroke.

Excessive fatigue during the day associated with sleep apnea can affect the results of post-stroke recovery. Excessive daytime fatigue may reduce the ability and motivation of stroke patients to continue to run the recovery program. As a result, the exercise to recovery is not done regularly, inhibition of recovery and the results will be much worse.

How to handle?

Before looking for diagnosing the cause of a sleep disorder, should be determined beforehand danlamanya type of sleep disorder (duration of sleep disorder), by knowing the type and duration of sleep disorders. In addition to helping identify the cause also can provide adequate treatment.

Diagnosis of sleep disorders in facilities uphold Overnight Treatment Laboratory Based Sleep Study (Polysomnography Complete). The medical team will formulate appropriate measures the degree of treatment of sleep disorders, patient selection, overall health status, and patient expectations.

Every 6 Seconds Soul lost due to stroke

Jakarta, Every 6 seconds somebody dies of a stroke and every second would be no new cases of stroke worldwide. Stroke become 'killer' that horrible to stroke worldwide organization called 'Let's Act Now'.

Small Note world stroke day 2010

World commemorates the day of stroke worldwide each October 29, 2010. World Stroke Organization welcomed the day of stroke worldwide in 2010 with the theme of 'One in Six: Act Now!'. Day is celebrated worldwide stroke on 29 October each year with a message 'stroke can be prevented, and stroke can be treated'.

Stroke is the third cause of death after heart disease and cancer, and is the number one cause of disability for survivors of a stroke.

The data show that more than 60% of stroke sufferers in the world live in developing countries. Increasing incidence of stroke in some Asian countries (China, India, and Indonesia) is suspected due to the influence of lifestyle changes, pollution, and changes in food consumption patterns.

Stroke is a brain dysfunction that occurs suddenly due to circulatory disorders of the brain. There are 2 kinds of stroke, ie stroke and haemorrhagic stroke blockage. The incidence of stroke, the blockage was higher than hemorrhagic stroke (70% vs. 30%).

The incidence of stroke increases due to increased stroke risk factors such as hypertension, smoking, high blood cholesterol, and diabetes.

Stroke in Indonesia

Data Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia (2008) showed that stroke is the number one cause of death in patients treated in hospital. Number of cases of hypertension, diabetes, high blood cholesterol, and smoking is increasing in Indonesia. Industrialization and pollution increases the risk of stroke.

Research shows that the incidence of stroke increases with air pollution. Increased incidence of stroke is also associated with increased emotional stress and changes in food consumption patterns.

The problems that arise in stroke services in Indonesia are:
1. The low awareness of stroke risk factors
2. Less familiar symptoms of stroke
3. Not to optimal stroke care
4. Adherence to therapy for stroke prevention program re low.

The four things that contribute to the increased incidence of new stroke and higher death rates from stroke in Indonesia and the high incidence of repeated strokes.

Westernization and stroke

Various research and studies show that the cause of the high incidence of stroke in developing countries is due to changes in lifestyle and food consumption patterns (Kaste and Norving, 2010).

Industrial advancement and improvement of economic status in developing countries associated with changes in urban lifestyle. Consumption of fast food and physical inactivity increases. Fast food linked to sodium and saturated fat content is high.

It is associated with increased incidence of hypertension, elevated cholesterol, central obesity, and hardening of the blood vessel wall (atherosclerotic) (Kilkeny, 2010).

Risk factors for stroke are often asymptomatic. Patients came for a treatment at the time of onset of symptoms was due to organ damage. This is what causes hypertension and dyslipidemia (high blood cholesterol) is known as 'the silent killer'.

Symptoms arise when the target organ damage was so severe. The campaign to continually be aware of increased blood pressure should be done. Mass-measurement of blood pressure is recommended. If a person's blood pressure is above 140/90 mmHg in figures 2 times of measurement, then the conditions are in accordance with the criteria of hypertension.

Changes in lifestyle should be done by reducing salt intake, exercise, lose excess weight, and quitting smoking. The nature of hypertension and dyslipidemia that do not cause symptoms contribute greatly to the low regularity of care and treatment of patients. Only less than 30% of hypertensive patients regularly treated and controlled blood pressure (Angeli, 2010). from []

5 Signs of Healthy Heart

When the heart stops beating in just a few minutes, followed by cessation of blood circulation, our lives are valuable even this will end. That is why the prevention of heart disease and blood vessel is important and action is emphasized.

In general there are five vital signs of a healthy heart.

1. Cholesterol
When compared, the LDL or bad cholesterol is incendiary and HDL or good cholesterol as a firefighter. "A good firefighter is usually able to prevent long term damage," said Roger Blumenthal of Johns Hopkins Cicarone Center.

The higher levels of HDL cholesterol, the lower the risk of ateroklerosis. For a healthy heart, not the bad cholesterol target more than 130 mg / dl and HDL should be higher than 40 mg / dl. HDL levels tended to increase with exercise, lose weight, and eat lots of fiber.

2. Blood pressure
If left unchecked in recent years, high blood pressure can damage arteries throughout the body so that the blood vessel wall will be thickened and rigid and clogged so that blood flow to vital organs is blocked. Optimal blood pressure is lower than 120/80 mmHg.

The variation range of food with a combination of proper nutrition would be beneficial for blood pressure. Various studies have also shown to reduce stress are also effective in lowering blood pressure. Spanish researchers say, the consumption of aspirin every day also reduce levels of systolic pressure 6.8 mmHg and 4.6 mmHg diastolic pressure.

3. Heartbeat
Life is not in your hands, but in your heart. Knowing the number of heartbeats per minute (resting heart rate) is one way to predict the age. In a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine noted, men who have a resting heart rate above 75 beats per minute (bpm) three times greater risk of heart attack. Normal pulse is 65 bpm.

"When you do a cardio workout with low intensity and add it into two weeks of high intensity, heart rate per minute will be reduced," says Neal Henderson, sports medicine experts. Do exercise at least 30 minutes with 60-80 percent of the maximum amount of heart rate.

4. Fasting blood sugar
Fasting blood sugar levels is a sign of the presence or absence of diabetes risk. The higher your blood sugar levels, the greater the risk of getting diabetes. "People with diabetes have a greater risk of heart disease, kidney, and eye disorders," said Johanthan Samet, MD, of Johns Hopkins.

To reduce levels of fasting blood sugar, we need to improve the ability of the body use blood sugar, or in other words improving insulin sensitivity. The best way to achieve this is to reduce weight.

5. C-reactive protein
Protein C-reavtive or CRP is a plasma protein produced by the liver as a reaction to an infection, injury, and inflammation. High levels of CRP indicate inflammation in the body. Because heart disease occurs because of inflammation in the arterial wall, CRP can be used as a common marker of heart disease risk.

Increased levels of CRP are usually accompanied by an increase in cholesterol. High CRP levels, ie more than 1 milligram per liter, also associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer. CRP measurement is done by taking blood from the elbow or the back of your hand.

Scorpion stings Prevent Surgical Complications

Health News - Toxins found in scorpion sting "Centruroides species" called "bark scorpion" has the potential to become drugs to prevent complications in heart surgery to bypass clogged blood vessels.

The purpose of cardiac bypass surgery is to drain enough blood flow to the heart muscle so that heart problems can be resolved. The surgeon will transplant the blood vessels taken from other body parts on coronary vessels in the heart.

However, complications frequently occur, namely in the blood vessels of transplanted cells grow new cells so that blood circulation to be impeded. In addition, the grafted blood vessels were also threatened out of place.

Experts have tried different types of chemicals and find the scorpion can be most effective for preventing the growth of cells that could interfere with the transplant process.

Studied scorpion bark scorpion is the kind that is usually found in areas of Central America. Scorpion size is small, but he is very agile and move fast. Can not bark scorpion sting can kill humans but cause pain and cause skin to swell.

Professor David Beech of the University of Leeds, who led the research said the bark scorpion can not be used as drug injection, swallow or sniff drugs, but as an inhaler in the blood vessels to be grafted to the heart.

YLKI: lots of bottled water problem

As many as 11 of the 21 brands of bottled drinking water (drinking water) glass on the market proven problematic. This is evidenced in research conducted by the Indonesian Consumers Foundation (YLKI) against the glass bottled water circulating in the community.

Deputy Food Safety Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM) Roy Sparingga explain, in 11 drinking water that contained problematic with the number of bacterial colonies which pose a health risk.

"The border was 100,000 microbacterial in each liter, when it clearly exceeds could interfere with health," he said during the presentation of research results in the office YLKI YLKI, Kalibata, South Jakarta, on Wednesday (27/10/2010).

Of the 11 products are problematic, nine products have a colony of bacteria approaching a predetermined threshold, of 100,000 micro-bacteria per milli-liter. Meanwhile, two other products have bacteria above the threshold.

Two such products are brand AMDK with Sega, which is produced by PT Indotirta Jaya Abadi, and Ron branded AMDK 88, which produced by PT Panfila Indosari.

Roy added that the water problem will be more at risk if consumed by people who have low body resistance. "Especially for those who are immuno compromize, or who have health problems, so the body's immune system becomes weak," said Roy

From these findings, YLKI send notification letters to 11 companies that have a problematic product. However, that provides clarification to the YLKI only nine companies.

"I do not know why they did not respond to this. In fact, it is not harmful to consumers," said Sudaryatmo, Chief Executive of the YLKI.

Roy appealed to people more cautious in buying drinking water, especially drinking water in glass containers. "My advice, if you drink water when it is something do not smell of drink. If the color is cloudy also do not drink," he said.

Chromosome Tests Ensure to Healthy Baby

Every expectant mother would want the birth to healthy children without birth defects. To realize these dreams, scientists have developed a way of detecting a normal embryo in IVF techniques so that only the healthy eggs to be implanted back into the birth. Thus, babies who are born healthy ascertained.

Detector of chromosome embryo is called chromosome aneuploidy screening that accurately detects chromosomal abnormalities in embryos. With this latest screening, cells that have abnormal chromosomes, one of which lead to Down syndrome, will be removed and only healthy embryos are selected.
In the IVF technique, normally 24 eggs retrieved from the ovaries to the husband's sperm cells fertilized in the laboratory. The doctor will look at the shape and size of the embryo is formed, then choose the healthiest embryos are considered to be implanted back into the womb. Unfortunately, these methods are often less accurate in choosing the embryo.

Another issue is physicians often choose two or more embryos to increase chances of pregnancy. As a result, frequent pregnancies, where it is too risky to the fetus and expectant mothers.

Through this latest technique of chromosome examination, the doctor will take samples of embryos is already five days and check each pair of chromosomes which are all numbered 23 pairs. Later, only the healthiest embryos are selected and implanted into the womb.

In a pilot study, 80 percent of women participants IVF (in vitro fertilization) that chromosome screening is successful childbirth. This success rate exceeds the average IVF success that only 20-30 percent.

In addition to ensuring a healthy embryo, this screening method will also provide a gap to women ages 40s are often difficult to get pregnant or miscarried.

Keep Heart Health with Garlic Oil

Jakarta - A new study found that garlic oil can prevent cardiomyopathy, and can help prevent heart disease.
Cardiomyopathy is a type of heart disease is responsible for the deaths due to diabetes.
The study was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, as quoted from Natural News.

Previous studies have shown garlic supports cardiovascular health. However, new research reveals in particular how the plant tubers help diabetics with cardiomyopathy.

Wei-Wen Kuo and colleagues at the university fed diabetic rats with corn oil and garlic oil.

They observed that rodent health condition in connection with the two treatments. They found that garlic increase antioxidant enzyme, reducing heart inflammation, and stop the death of cells. Also preserve the integrity of cardiac tissue is very important.

"Garlic oil has the potential to keep the heart from diabetes causes of cardiomyopathy," the researchers said.

They assert more than 20 compounds in garlic oil treatment benefits, including allicin, an organosulfur compound. [* / Mor]

Tomato Seeds Effectively Replacing Aspirin

Tomato Seeds
London - Seeds of tomatoes believed to be capable of as a substitute for aspirin and is one of longevity medicine.

According to clinical trials conducted Professor Asim Dutta-Roy from the Rowett Institute in Aberdeen, the natural gel found in seeds of tomato can help maintain healthy blood circulation by preventing blood from clotting.

Gel, a colorless and tasteless, and can be added to foods without changing their characteristics. The findings are then patented as Fruitflow.
Use Fruitflow already done at one of the fruit and juice products scheduled to be added to other foods.

EU health officials have received the results of this study are believed to increase blood flow and has approved the use of such claims on the packaging.

So far, aspirin is known to reduce the risk of freezing. Now with the use of Fruitflow impact caused smaller and tend to be more effective.

Nowdays, millions of parents taking small doses of aspirin every day to improve blood flow. However, this usage is actually not recommended because it has the side-effects such as bleeding in the stomach and ulcer formation.

Professor Asim Dutta-Roy at the Rowett Institute in Aberdeen, which is also the originator of the Mediterranean diet, say that Fruitflow is a good natural alternative to aspirin.

"For now, there are no side effects have been demonstrated during the development of Fruitflow," said Asim Dutta-Roy as quoted by the Telegraph

Research shows that the smooth blood flow can be seen within three hours to take Fruitflow and results can take up to 18 hours, making it ideal for daily consumption.

Use Fruitflow has been added to Sirco, or mixed with a range of 100% pure fruit juice. And has been available in health food stores. [Mor]

Low Dose Aspirin Reduce Colon Cancer

London - Low-dose aspirin can reduce a quarter of cases of colon cancer, which is the third cause of death.

Some degree, experts say that the side effects of aspirin is a form of bleeding problems and stomach pains are worrying for people who are not at high risk of cancer to take the drug for reasons to prevent the disease.

Previous studies have found a daily dose of at least 500 milligrams of aspirin may prevent colon cancer. But side effects such as high doses that exceed the benefits. Now researchers say that low-dose, equivalent dose aspirin baby or regular, is also helpful.

European researchers see the results of four experiments over the past 20 years involving more than 14,000 people. The experiment was originally conducted to study the use of aspirin in preventing stroke.
They found the baby or the people who take aspirin regularly pill every day for about six years, can reduce their risk of colon cancer as much as 24%, deaths from the disease were down 35%. That compared with those taking placebo pills or not. It seems there are advantages to not take aspirin more than the dose for infants.

Conclusion: low doses of aspirin can reduce colon cancer indicate that the drug is inching toward the way use for cancer prevention, although people do not have to start taking aspirin every day without consulting their doctor.

Research using baby aspirin to Europe as much as 75 milligrams and 300 milligrams of aspirin regularly. In the United States. baby aspirin for 81 milligrams, while regular aspirin weighing 325 mg.

If using long-term high-dose, aspirin can irritate the stomach, intestines, and cause injury and major bleeding. Some researchers say the drug will only benefit certain people.

"Every person with risk factors such as family history (colorectal cancer) or previous polyps, should really take an aspirin," said Peter Rothwell, a professor at Oxford University and co-author of the paper. "The findings also provide 'tips the balance' for anyone who consider aspirin to prevent heart attacks and strokes," he said.

There is no special funding to research published online in the journal Lancet on Friday (22/10). Rothwell and some other writers are paid to work with some drug manufacturers that make anti-clotting drugs like aspirin.

The trial was analyzed in the Lancet, before the widespread introduction of screening tests such as sigmoidoscopies and colonoscopies, to avoid the possibility someone had died from colon cancer from about 40% to 70% of cases.

Rothwell said, taking aspirin will still be helpful, because the drug seems to stop the cancer in the upper intestine, which usually are not caught by the screening test.

The study compared people who took low doses of aspirin with those taking placebo or not eating at all. Researchers followed the patients for almost 20 years and observe those who have cancer by examining the cancer registries and death certificates in England and Sweden, where the study conducted.

Of the 8282 people taking low dose aspirin, 119 died of colorectal cancers. Among the 5751 people who took a placebo or not taking aspirin, as many as 121 people died of this disease.

The scientists think aspirin works by stopping the production of certain enzymes associated with cancer, including people with stomach cancer, breast, esophagus, and colon.

Other experts cautioned the public against the use of aspirin. "It's not for everybody," said Robert Benamouzig, from Avicenne Hospital in Bobigny, France, who co-wrote a commentary in Lancet.

He said that he would suggest some high-risk patients to take aspirin, but only after explaining the side effects.

Colon cancer is the second most common cancer in developed countries. There are approximately one million new cases and 600,000 deaths worldwide each year due to this disease. The average person has about 5% chance of developing this disease in their lives. [Mor]

Aspirin Potentially Treat Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis - Who is not familiar with aspirin or acetylsalicylic acid (asetosal). This one drug has been known since hundreds of years ago and often used as an analgesic (pain or minor aches), antipyretic (drug fever), and anti-inflammatory or inflammation.
In addition to nutritious treat various symptoms and disease, the benefits of aspirin has also been growing along with the incessant research experts. Recent research on animals, for example, the potential ability of aspirin to treat bone loss or osteoporosis.

In a study published in the journal PLoS One, researchers from the United States indicate that low-dose aspirin can reduce the activity of cells that gnaw the bone. On the other hand, aspirin also can increase the activity of the cells that build bone density.

By experts, the increased activity of cells that destroy bone density is typically referred to as the cause of osteoporosis. However, according to Dr. Songtao Shi from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, Los Angeles, recent evidence has indicated that the decrease in the number of cells that form bone diseases also contribute to the occurrence of bone loss.

In his research, a team led by Dr. Songtao Shi proved that aspirin can reduce the level of damage to cells that form bone in mice. They also can show further that by adding low-dose aspirin, bone-forming cells become more active, whereas cells that destroy bone became less active. With the addition of aspirin, these rat bones become stronger and more solid.

"Aspirin may be able to offer a new approach to treat osteoporosis that many experienced by women after menopause," researchers said as quoted Reutershealth, Thursday (31/7).

Although some research in humans has indicated that the use of aspirin on a regular basis to provide sufficient benefits in postmenopausal women bone compaction, Shi stressed the importance of continued research to uncover more detail and clarify the mechanism of aspirin in preventing and treating osteoporosis.

Aspirin Prevents Liver Damage

An aspirin can prevent liver damage due to parcetamol and alcohol overdose. Thus the findings of the experts said. Yale University team that published the findings in the Journal of Clinical investigation found that aspirin can prevent death in rats with paracetamol overdose.
They believe that these results are due to chemical interference paths that lead to damage due to inflammation
Unfortunately, the British Liver Trust said that these findings have not been proven in humans. The average incidence of liver cirrhosis rise in England in recent years due to the many people who consume excessive alcohol and paracetamol every year.

Scientists look at how alcohol and paracetamol (fever-lowering drugs) can damage the liver by causing inflammation. Inflammation is a sign that the damage is getting worse. Recent findings of experts even mention, the mice were given acetaminophen (the active ingredient in paracetamol) in Jumah many will survive the death after being given aspirin in small quantities.

These scientists believe, aspirin works by blocking a chemical receptor in liver cells. Receptors is what causes the appearance of inflammation. Aspirin is also isolate specific molecules, called TLR antagonist that also can block this receptor.

Dr. Wajahat Mehal, the leader of this research, stating: "Many factors such as drugs and alcohol that can damage the liver, and we found two ways of blocking the center lane which is responsible for liver damage" he said.

Mehal said, the strategy uses aspirin every day to prevent liver damage. When you fail TLR antagonist used to replace it. "All this offers tremendous possibilities in reducing the suffering of the patients with liver disease."

Mehal also reminded that the recommendation of the use of aspirin must be from a doctor because it is used more than one day. Aspirin can cause stomach irritation and increase the risk of bleeding in the digestive tract. Therefore, must not use it.

Aspirin Cut Colon Cancer Risk

Low-dose aspirin are consumed every day in the long term effective way to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer up to one quarter. The risk of dying from this disease is also reduced by a third.

Previously, low-dose aspirin is also recommended for patients who have a high risk of heart attack and stroke. In the prevention of colon cancer or colon cancer, aspirin in high doses are effective but have side effects bleeding.
Therefore, experts tried to examine whether if the dose is lowered, the effect remains the same protection. In this study the researchers followed up four research conducted in England and Sweden between the years 1980-1990 on the effects of aspirin in cardiovascular patients.

In general, the research for six years, participants were asked to take aspirin in doses of 1200 mg or placebo pills. More than 14,000 patients who attended medical history for 18 years, 391 colorectal cancers.

Those who took aspirin, the risk of cancer was reduced by 24 percent and mortality risk can be reduced to 35 percent. The results of this research is consistent in the four studies. Unfortunately there are no data on side effects in long-term aspirin use because since the beginning of this study was designed to examine cardiovascular disease.

"The results of this study indicate the use of low-dose aspirin in the long term in combination with screening can reduce the incidence of cancer throughout the colon and rectum," says Peter Rothwell, of Oxford University.

Colorectal cancer
is one of the most common types of cancer occur in men and women. The risk of this cancer seems more frequent in those with diets high in fat and low in vegetables and fresh fruit. Colorectal cancer risk was also higher in smokers, drinkers and those with less exercise.

Omega 3 Reduce Risk of Alzheimer's

Indeed, so far no studies or experts who can ensure that the main cause of disease 'dementia' or Alzheimer's. However, some researchers concluded, the risk of getting Alzheimer's can be reduced if the Omega 3 contained in the body in sufficient quantities. Omega 3 is believed to improve mental function, memory and concentration.

Substances found in fatty fish a lot of it also proved to be successful treat depression, symptoms of mental illness or schizophrenia. Fish is a source of natural Omega 3 fatty acids, namely EPA and DHA. This substance serves to prevent atherosclerosis and significantly lower levels of triglycerides in the blood and cholesterol in the liver and heart.

Omega 3 fatty acid levels in some species of fish in Indonesian waters link between 0.1 grams to 0.5 grams per 100 grams of fish. This is higher than the fish in the waters of Thailand, the levels of Omega 3 was only 0.084 grams per 200 grams.

The Indonesian marine fish that contain high in Omega 3 fatty acids, which is about 10.9 grams per 100 grams is eel fish, terubuk, mackerel, mackerel, flying, pomfret, seren, slengseng, tuna. (Cash / A.Syalaby Ichsan)

Food that makes you long life

If you want to stay fit and live longer, avoid abstain from food or eating only one food only. Consumption of food variety in your dish, especially the prevention of anti-inflammatory foods because it is the key to healthy living and longevity.

Similarly, according to research conducted by experts from Lund University, Sweden. They investigated the effects of consuming a variety of foods, especially those that have anti-inflammatory effects on health. Apparently, the more useful if we eat a variety of foods rather than eating them separately.

These types of foods recommended are foods that are high in low glycemic index (slow to raise blood sugar levels), foods high in antioxidants, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, probiotics, foods high in fiber, and Cereal products intact.

The recommended consumption pattern is to combine a variety of food. "Drugs or foods with specific benefits that may only give an advantage. However, if we combine it with various other foods, many risk factors for preventable disease," said Professor Inger Bjorck, lead researcher.

In a study involving 44 people healthy, but suffer from obesity, the researchers studied the impact of diet on the body varies. After four weeks, people who eat a healthy variety of foods that have lower levels of bad cholesterol 33 percent.

Another benefit is the low level of inflammation in the body, namely the conditions that trigger the metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Meanwhile, cognitive function and memory increases.

In addition to variations in the type of food, food color variations are also advised to be part of the daily diet.

Experts long known that inflammation or inflammation is a major cause of chronic diseases and causes normal cells turn into cancer cells.

Nipagin Preservatives in Soy Indomie

Healthy Food - Preservatives are suspected to be the cause of the withdrawal of instant noodles in Taiwan is Nipagin or methyl p-hydroxybenzoate. Preservatives are present in soy sauce included in the box instant noodles fried noodles in particular types.

"Substance nipagin preservatives used in artificial Indofood instant noodle sauce. But if the sauce is their use of other preservatives are benzoic acid. Of course, the content of preservative in Indomie has been determined eligible safe. In fact, it implies a long way below the threshold of acceptable body for consumption daily or ADI (Acceptable Daily Intake), "said Roy Sparingga, Deputy Food Safety POM, to, Monday (10/11/2010).

Use of Nipagin been arranged in the Minister of Health No. 722 of 1988 on food additives. When used in soy products, the use of the maximum limit is 250 mg per kg. In other foods, except meat, fish and poultry, the limit of use is 1,000 mg per kg.

From the review requirements in some countries such as Canada, the United States, the maximum limit allowed in food nipagin was 1,000 mg per kg. While in Singapore and Brunei Darussalam, the maximum limit of 250 mg per kg of soy sauce and in Hong Kong amounted to 550 mg per kg.

Based on data from the POM, to date, the number of products listed instant noodle in Indonesia is 663 items and 466 types of domestic items of foreign species.

In protecting public health, POM periodically conduct sampling and testing food products on the market, including instant noodle. POM agency heads Kustantinah sure, if all that beradar instant noodle product has no preservatives nipagin levels exceed specified limits.

"The test results, in the last five years, against which there is soy sauce in the instant noodle product, was not found that it contains nipagin that exceed maximum allowable limits," said Kustantinah.

Men Have More sweat

Men do indeed easier sweat bath. Not just because they are more physically active, but also the body temperature rises faster men than women, especially when doing physical activity is quite heavy.

Basically spending the sweat of body fluids is a mechanism to balance the body temperature. For example, when the temperature inside the body heat, it is necessary to issue the liquid through the skin for temperature in the body can be lowered so that we feel comfortable.

Experts believe all this time, men sweat more because their bodies have evolved following the physical activity of men is more severe, ranging from hunting to perform activities of carpentry. Conversely, women are more mild physical activity and body they are also smaller, so water stored less body. So if there is evaporation of fluids through excessive sweating, they can become dehydrated.

Scientists from Japan have found that the more active people sweat more, whatever their gender. People who do sports activities will spend 60 percent of his body fluids than someone who is not active. Therefore, people who actively exercise his ability to adapt to the environmental temperature is better.

"Women generally have less body fluid than men so they are more easily dehydrated. They are also more susceptible to heat stroke because their bodies are not very good at lowering temperature in the body," said Yoshimitsu Inoue, a researcher from the University of Osaka and Kobe.

At least, the amount of sweat produced by the female body is a strategy to survive in hot environments, while sweating profusely in men could be a strategy for physical activity is more severe. "The ability to adapt to warmer temperatures would be better if men or women to do sports," said Inoue.

Every day, we sweat an average of 1 to 1.5 liters, depending on gender, air temperature and light weight of its activity. Soccer players had lost two liters of sweat during a marathon runner to compete and sweat to three liters in one hour.
