The amount of non-food objects Ingestion Hazards

A woman who complained of nausea, vomiting, and low blood pressure abdominal infection initially diagnosed by a doctor. But after undergoing a blood test, the levels of enzymes in the heart unstable. By ultrasound, even found a hole in his heart equal to 3 cm.

As reported by My Health News Daily (10/09), it turns out the woman is ever accidentally swallowed a toothpick. Worse, instead of going to the digestive system, the toothpick is actually ‘stray’ and hurt. This fact is quite surprising, because apparently there are already many cases of someone swallowed a toothpick and lead to liver problems. Similarly, as reported by the latest research.

“Swallowing foreign objects that are not food is not a new problem. Unfortunately many people often forget after swallowing something,” researchers wrote in the journal BMK Case Reports.

Many cases of swallowing foreign objects that are not food out of the path of the digestive system. Foreign objects such objects usually are pointy and sharp, such as a toothpick, needle, until the fish spines.

Vitadigest a combination of Dextrin and inulin, both belonging to the KH complex.

= Polysaccharide dextrin and inulin = fructans / group of oligosaccharides and polysaccharides. So both include the type KH are soluble (soluble).

Vitadigest not a kind of oat, but Vitadigest is combined dextrin (partial breakdown of starch) and Inulin (fructans). Digestible dextrin, usually derived from starch. There is a source of whole grains, seeds, tubers, rice, corn, wheat heated dry, for example in the process of baking bread.

Sources of Inulin / fructans are cereals, onion, garlic, asparagus, dahlias, and so forth.

Inulin is not digested in the small intestine and most of fermented in the large intestine. Therefore inulin helps the growth and development of colonic bacteria thereby increasing stool weight. Thus inulin may help healthy digestion.

Nature of both the soluble and tends to increase stool weight, also reduce transit time in the gastrointestinal tract, and can control the metabolism of glucose and fat in the body.

Waist Circumference Health Indicators

Amount of fat around the waist is one caveat to transform into a healthier lifestyle again.

According to an anti-obesity campaign in the UK, measuring waist circumference with a tape measure is a measure of health that is more accurate than weighing. By measuring the waist circumference, the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease can be predicted more accurately.

Those who have the highest risk of developing obesity-related diseases are the men who have a waist circumference greater than 101 cm (40 inches) and women with a waist circumference greater than 89 cm (35 inches).

Sebuat research conducted at the University Birminghan, England showed that fat cells around the waist is not passive but rather chunks of fat cells that can actively destabilize excess insulin and improve blood pressure and cholesterol in the blood.

Such as heart disease and diabetes is no longer visible to haunt them contains from outside, but also the people who look slim. So do not ever careless.

Often Overtime Increase Heart Attack

Often work more than eight hours a day alias overtime increases the risk of heart disease by 80 percent.

Thus the results of a recent study conducted by researchers from Finland.

In addition to heart disease, the researchers say, working long hours can lead to risk of stroke.

Health warning is raised after they did 12 studies conducted since 1958.

The study, conducted by researchers at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health involving more than 22,000 people around the world found that those who regularly work more than eight hours a day have a 40 percent to 80 percent greater risk of heart disease.

Study leader Dr Marianna Virtanen said, these negative effects may be caused by “too long exposure to stress.” “There are several potential mechanisms that may underlie relationships influence long working hours and heart disease,” he wrote.

Let’s Push-Up!

Push-ups are a symbol of health, which is also used as a fitness barometer of the most simple, easy, and most quickly. Push-up test the entire body, regulate muscle in the arm, chest, abdomen, hips, and legs.

Push-ups require body taut like a plank with toes and palms on the floor. Movements such as lifting and weight loss requires strength and endurance are primed to do the push-up movement many times.

Many people can not do push-ups. Many health and fitness experts focus on upper-body fitness, such as aerobic fitness that emphasizes cardiovascular (heart and blood vessels).

Push-ups are also important for the parents. The ability to do push-ups more than once with the perfect attitude indicator is the capacity to fight the effects of aging. Researchers who study the aging biomechanism note that push-ups can provide the strength and ability of the muscle to hold when the body fell. If someone fell forward, he will defend itself so that it will produce a movement similar to push-ups. Hands touch the floor, wrists and arms absorb the impact of falls, elbows bent slightly to reduce the force because of a fall.

Easy Ways to Deal with Night Snacking Habits

A group of researchers from St Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City and the University of California, the United States found that when people feel tired, the brain will see unhealthy foods (junk food) as a “prize” or reward. When tired also the brain’s ability to take the best decision of a situation complicated was reduced, including choosing healthy foods.

This is what happens every night when home from work or after a long day tired, suddenly late at night, there is a feeling so hungry that over and make someone want to snack, especially unhealthy foods.

However, that does not mean humans are endowed the ability to think and plan it could not beat the snack craving unhealthy foods at night. The key is in the planning.

Think ahead

“Various studies have shown, self-control will be reduced as time goes on in a day, so make sure you make the decision  in the morning, when you have a more clear and far,” says Kelly McGonigal, a health psychologist at Stanford University and author of The Instinct willpower.

Techniques Treatment For Infertility Problems

Several types of treatment techniques for infertility or infertility problems who have high success rates of these are:

Artificial Insemination

Artificial insemination or artificial insemination (often abbreviated as AI) is done by inserting semen containing sperm from the male to the female reproductive organs without the sex or not naturally. Semen containing sperm is taken with certain tools of a husband and then injected into the wife’s uterus so that fertilization and pregnancy. Usually the doctor will recommend artificial insemination as a first step before applying any therapy or other types of treatment.

GIFT (Gamete intrafallopian transfer)

GIFT which stands for Gamete intrafallopian transfer is a technique that was introduced since 1984. The goal is to create a pregnancy. The process is done by taking the egg from the ovary or ovaries women are matched with male sperm cells that have been cleaned. By using a device called a laparoscope, the egg and sperm that have been brought into the fallopian tube is inserted into the woman’s fallopian tube or through a small incision in the abdomen through laparoscopic surgery. So expect immediate fertilization and pregnancy. Continue reading “Techniques Treatment For Infertility Problems”

Heart Disease, Fish Oil Pills Not the Solution

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in oily fish such as sardines and salmon, is known as a way to help cope with heart disease and stroke, it does not help at all, according to a study from Greece.

Based on review and analysis of previous clinical trials, including more than 68 thousand participants, researchers from Greece whose report appears in the Journal of the American Medical Association says that the fatty acid has no effect on overall mortality, death from heart disease or stroke and heart attacks.

This is true regardless of whether they have to take supplements in the form of pills, or directly from the fish they eat, according to researchers led by Mosef Elisef of the University Hospital of Ionnina.

“Overall, omega-3 … supplementation is not associated with a decreased risk of all kinds of death, death from heart disease, sudden death, or stroke by a relative or absolute relationships,” said Elisef and his team. Continue reading “Heart Disease, Fish Oil Pills Not the Solution”

Drowsiness At Night

why we get sleepy at night? Or why when rural communities had no electricity tend to sleep more quickly? The answer is because of the hormone melatonin. SCN will tell your body to release the hormone melatonin when it’s dark. Furthermore, the hormone melatonin will tell your body to rest. However, with the presence of the electric light that makes the atmosphere becomes bright night inhibits the release of the hormone melatonin, so now more people sleep late at night than ever before.

Our bodies are adaptable. For example, for workers who work at night, SCN will adapt to release the hormone melatonin so that they will remain intact even though it was dark. When the night went on, we would feel sleepy, is due to the hormone melatonin produced increased and decreased body temperature and blood pressure in the body.
