Wrong Myths Oil Fish, Lose Weight

Wrong Myths Oil Fish
Wrong Myths Oil Fish, Lose Weight - Fish oil, which have been considered a powerful assist in weight loss diet, not quite true. Supplement capsule this one will not boost weight reduction if you have been on a diet and exercise, according to new research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
In a group of adults obese and overweight who follow a diet and exercise program, those who took omega-3 fatty acids do not lose weight, than those given a placebo capsule, according to the invention researcher Laura F. DeFina of the Cooper Institute in Dallas and colleagues.

Indeed there is evidence from animal studies that omega 3 can help weight loss, according to the DeFina. However, studies in humans show a variety of results.

Fish oils have potential health benefits, including lowering cholesterol, improve insulin sensitivity and reduce blood tekanana. "Thus, weight-loss program that is identical with the consumption of omega-3 polyunsaturated fats such as sound right," write the researchers in their report. But that assumption is not always evident.

To investigate whether fish oil is to strengthen the person's diet and exercise, researchers randomly asked 128 male and female obese or overweight with no active lifestyle, to consume five capsules of fish oil - equivalent to three grams of omega three - or five placebo capsules daily for 24 weeks.

Participants were also instructed to perform aerobic exercise per week for 150 minutes They were also asked to practice the strength and stamina of 20 to 30 minutes each practice on every week.

Omega-3 group with weight loss up to 5.2 kilograms. While the group who consumed the placebo experienced shrinkage weight 5.8 pounds. That number did not show statistically significant differences, meaning people in both groups lost more than 5 percent body weight, and enough to get health benefits.

Only, in the first group contained elevated levels of omega-3 levels in the blood - which according to the study proved - have an impact on heart disorders.

AIDS Sufferer Heal With Blood Cell Transplantation

AIDS Sufferer Heal With Blood Cell Transplantation - A blood cell transplantation is quite rare most likely to cure men with AIDS in Berlin, Germany. However, team doctors said that this method can not be practiced widely.

40-year-old man with AIDS is getting blood stem cell transplant to treat leukemia in 2007 he suffered. Apparently it's not just the same donor blood type, but also affects the genetic mutation that provides natural resistance to HIV (the virus that reduce the human immune system). Now, three years post-transplant, people with AIDS showed no symptoms of leukemia or HIV infection.

"Therapy is quite interesting and provide evidence of cure HIV, but the method is too risky to be a standard therapy, even if a similar donor can be found," said Dr. Michael Saag, former chairman of the HIV Medicine Association, a medical organization that specifically deal with AIDS therapy.

Transplantation of bone marrow or stem cells, which lately is mostly done, has been widely used in cancer therapy, but if done on healthy people, doctors do not yet know the risks. The therapy will destroy the body's natural immune system with drugs and radiation and then replace it with donor cells to grow new immune system. "The failure or risk of complications of this method reaches 5 percent or more," says Saag.

That's why the use of such methods in a healthy person does not become the primary choice considering the risks are great, especially if the drugs are still able to maintain the condition of people with HIV. "It could be an exception if a person with HIV also suffer from cancer. Transplantation could be considered," he said.

"Currently, one third of the funds collected from donations needs of government and the private sector," said Mitra Salima Suryono, Public Information Officer WFP, after submission of a donation from the Blue Band to the WFP, in Hypermart Thamrin City on Wednesday (07/21/2010).

The contribution of various parties are needed for more and more children are able to grow and increase its capacity. For the first child must be free from the danger of hunger and malnutrition. Participation of the mother also has its own role.

Peggy Melati Sukma, artists and activists of social activities, said the problem of malnutrition in children could not be separated from the role of parents, especially mothers.

"Moreover, mothers who more often associated with children, without excluding the role of man to overcome the problem of malnutrition in the family," said Peggy told Compass Female, after attending the delivery of donations to WFP's Blue Band through the School Meal Program.

"To answer the problem of malnutrition need to focus on education, especially to parents. Malnutrition is also related to income per capita of population is still low," he added.

However, Peggy said, parents have high income does not necessarily guarantee the child was malnourished. Once again, he added, an understanding of malnutrition and food needs have more incentive given to the parents.

The easiest way is the mother is shopping by selecting products that support this kind of program.

Further recommends to keep the stay slim in these limits.

This recommendation is more stringent than AICR - and other organizations in general - who handles the same thing before, and illustrates the strength of the evidence that has been raised several years ago. When the AICR report was first published in 1997, only the facts link between obesity against endometrial cancer assessed convincing.

"The recommendation was to show what science reveals to us today. Even though a little excess fat, especially around the waist, can increase that risk, "said James.

Fresh milk twice a day

Fresh milk twice a day
Fresh milk twice a day - Milk is an essential nutrition for health and well-balanced development of the child. Unfortunately, parents often fail to provide milk to children. On the other hand, children are also increasingly reluctant to drink milk.

The Center for Health Promotion Kemenkes dr. Lily S Sulistyowati said that ideally, children drink milk twice a day. "Drink milk, twice a day. If you are diligent and balanced food drink milk, until old age bones and teeth are well preserved or not osteoporotic," she said in front of hundreds of children from various elementary schools who attended the celebration of World School Milk Day in Keong Mas , TMII, Saturday (25/09/2010).

For this reason, the Ministry of Health continues to hold a campaign to drink milk with various parties, including with Tetra Pak for milk consumption in Indonesia has been increasing.

The campaign was held primarily to encourage children to consume fresh milk is considered better than powder or sweetened condensed milk. According to Lily too, for healthy in old age, health must be maintained since early, mainly drink milk.

Lily encourages children to start drinking milk every day before the move along with breakfast. Thus, concentration and stamina of children will wake up well.

"Breakfast is important for your energy in schools. The menu also may ask for chicken continues to baseball, not so, the food must with balanced nutrition and variety," she added.

Consumption of fruit must also be considered. Ideally, four to five servings of fruit should be consumed by children every day. Parents must also consider the pattern of development of the child's body. Do not be too fat, not too skinny. Great children's bodies are well nourished according to his height should be ideal.

Milk Really Cause Cancer?

Milk Really Cause Cancer?
Nutritional benefits of milk as a health supporting lately started to doubt along with the many myths about milk, one of which is causing cancer. How is that right?

This myth actually started from 1993 when the FDA approved the animal husbandry department in the United States to use growth hormone (rBGH) in cattle. The practice causes the milk production increased rapidly so that the price of milk could be pressed. But it also caused controversy because of rBGH increases the concentration of insulin-like growth factor (IGF), a hormone-related cancer in the milk increases.

However, in contrast to steroid hormones that can be taken orally, rBGH and IGF must be injected to get the effect. That's because the digestion process will destroy this protein hormone. Therefore, drinking milk from cows given the hormone does not necessarily transfer the active ingredients of this chemical into the body. In other words, rBGH and IGF can only cause cancer when injected directly into the human body.

Even so, because the issue of ethics, is now the practice of giving the hormone in cattle has been banned. Researchers from Canada have also found that the cows are given hormones are more susceptible to mastitis infections.

How to antibiotics in animal feed? Some opinions say existing antibiotics in cattle body will settle in milk and meat. If consumed in a long time this will cause people who eat them become antibiotic resistant.

Of this there is no scientist can be sure because no studies that prove it. If you are concerned with issues of this antibiotic, currently on the market are organic dairy products are free from hormones and antibiotics. But maybe the price is relatively expensive.

Overcome Cancer with Raw Vegetables

Overcome Cancer with Raw Vegetables - Fortunately for those who like to eat raw vegetables. Many studies conclude that raw vegetables may reduce cancer risk.
The results Roswell Park Cancer Institute, New York showed those who ate broccoli, cabbage or cauliflower without cooking at least three times a month, have a reduced risk of bladder cancer by 40% compared with that not running this habit.

The study mentioned above conducted by surveying 275 people who suffer from bladder cancer and 825 people who did not have cancer. As a result, those who do not smoke and eat at least three servings of vegetables, broccoli and cabbage every month to avoid a bladder cancer by 73% than the smokers who ate fewer than three servings of raw broccoli and cabbage.

But keep in mind that the benefits of vegetables as an antidote to cancer is not applicable to the cooked vegetables. Research leader, Dr. Li Tang, said the process of cooking vegetables could reduce the isothiocyanate compounds (compounds that can reduce cancer risk) between 60% to 90%.

In addition, the report, published in the journal Cancer, Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention says that eating five servings of raw vegetables such as beans, carrots, corn, and dark leafy vegetables may reduce the risk of lymph gland cancer by 50 percent.

According to him, if you're not the type that discipline to get up in the morning and keep their promises to get up early, then early exercise is not for you. Conversely, if you are easily distracted attention in the mid-day before the night and often overtime, it is advisable to exercise in the morning.

There are several studies that measure the effectiveness of exercise in the second time. Some scientists believe, the best time to exercise it in between the hours of 14:00 to 18:00, while body temperature was highest, muscle weakness, and flexibility of the body reaches its peak. Studies in Mollen Clinic, reported that after 1 year, 75 percent of people who exercise in the morning will continue to do the exercise, while exercise at night only 25 percent who continue to do it.

Freytag advice is still to see the time and your body's own system to determine when the best time for you to exercise. Essentially, whether you exercise 20 minutes in the morning, 20 minutes at lunchtime, or 20 minutes before sleep, it means you successfully exercising 20 minutes a day, this was better than you do not exercise.

Eggs and Cholesterol

Eggs and Cholesterol - Cholesterol is a type of fat floating around in the blood with the help of proteins called lipoproteins. If the levels are excessive, cholesterol will accumulate in the blood vessel wall which could eventually clog the blood vessel walls.

The increase in cholesterol can occur because the food intake in our body. Animal fat, saturated oil variety, and eggs are good sources of cholesterol that should be avoided to reduce cholesterol levels. Although high-cholesterol egg yolk, it does not mean we should not eat eggs at all. Therefore we need to understand where the egg which contains proteins and high cholesterol.


In one rather large egg yolk contains at least 213 mg of cholesterol. That's why when this morning the egg into your breakfast menu, you should consider cholesterol intake from other food sources. For example, you can replace full cream milk with skim milk.

Every day, we recommended limiting cholesterol intake of 300 mg per day maximum. People that levels of LDL or bad cholesterol is very high and taking cholesterol-lowering drugs should only consume less than 200 mg of cholesterol per day. In addition to eggs as a side dish, avoid eating foods made from eggs, such as bread or cake.

Egg white
Separating the yolk from the menu you will make the eggs are free of cholesterol consumed because egg whites do not contain cholesterol. Therefore, the experts at the Mayo Clinic recommends egg whites instead of eggs, for example to make a cake or cooking.

Keep Cholesterol, Stay on Healthy Track

Keep Cholesterol, Stay on Healthy Track
Keep Cholesterol, Stay on Healthy - We would often hear the shrimp and the "yolk" is food with high cholesterol content. Does this mean we should stop eating them for cholesterol in our blood can not jump?

According to nutritionist Joy Bouner, MS, RD, CDN, who also wrote the book Your Inner Skinny, food containing cholesterol is not the only cause of rise in bad cholesterol or LDL in the blood. In fact, actual genetiklah factor which becomes the biggest factor in the formation of LDL. "It is the heart that affect how much cholesterol is produced by the body and unfortunately there are some people who produce genetically high cholesterol."

We would often hear the shrimp and the "yolk" is food with high cholesterol content. Does this mean we should stop eating them for cholesterol in our blood can not jump?

According to nutritionist Joy Bouner, MS, RD, CDN, who also wrote the book Your Inner Skinny, food containing cholesterol is not the only cause of rise in bad cholesterol or LDL in the blood. In fact, the real factor is a genetic factor which becomes the biggest factor in the formation of LDL. "It is the heart that affect how much cholesterol is produced by the body and unfortunately there are some people who produce genetically high cholesterol."

In people who are genetically sensitive to cholesterol when eating foods high in saturated fat, the levels of LDL in the blood will rise sharply. That's why we need an ideal dose of fat that enters the body for our hearts ldd produces fatigue in the blood. Lifestyle factors also affect the ease of the body to produce cholesterol.

American Heart Association recommends us to eat no more than 300 milligrams of cholesterol per day. And, sources of cholesterol are meat, dairy products, meat, poultry, shellfish, and egg yolks.

Bouner later explained, in fact cholesterol is a nutrient that is unique. Cholesterol comes from animals, in principle there that contain saturated fat and need special attention to taking appropriate dose. While in plants, because the high fiber content then certainly lower cholesterol levels or even none at all.

Then, if the shrimp and egg yolk are safe for consumption? "Here's the full story," Bouner answer. Overall, egg yolk contains 212 mg of cholesterol. But the truth is not only the cholesterol that is in the yolk, there is also choline, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Even the Harvard study in 2008 and then prove that moderate consumption of eggs (6 eggs per week) did not make the risk of heart attack and stroke increases.

So, we actually need tricks to enjoy eggs without making our blood cholesterol increases. Bouner suggest using 1 egg yolk with 2 to 3 egg whites when they want to make an omelet.

It is not much different can actually be applied to the shrimp. Although the actual levels of cholesterol can reach 166mg per 300 grams, but the shrimp are rich in protein and Omega-3. So, do not hesitate to eat them once a week. But remember, cook shrimp with boiled, not fried, because cooking oil will increase the levels of saturated fat.

However, especially for us who develop type 2 diabetes, intake of cholesterol into the body is given special attention. Proportion did not exceed 200 mg per day. That means, egg yolks and shrimp should only be enjoyed occasionally.[KOMPAS]

Sperm Shortage, what reason

Sperm shortage, what reason- The less smooth the process of fertilization is not only determined by the reproductive health of women. Men also accounted for a role in fertilization failure. In fact, from 7 million infertile couples, 40 percent caused by low sperm counts.

One of the criteria for male fertility according to the World Health Organization (WHO) is there are 15 million head of sperm in each milliliter of seminal fluid. If there are abnormalities of the amount, you could say these men have fertility problems.

Some medical conditions can indeed cause low sperm quality, but environmental factors are also influential. What are?

1. Obesity
Excess body weight not only affects the number of sperm cells but also increases cell damage seperma. According to research from Harvard University, it is because excess fat can reduce testosterone levels and increased estradiol, female sex hormones.

2. Impotence drug
Although older men are the target of erectile dysfunction drugs, now more and more young men who joined the blue pill and the like without a prescription. Whereas the results of research conducted in England found erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra, Levitra and Cialis can damage the sperm's head so that more and more difficult for sperm to penetrate the egg cell and initiate cell division.

3. Zinc deficiency
One study found zinc levels in infertile men is higher than in men who are infertile. Experts say zinc contributes to fight free radicals cause damage to sperm cells. Fulfill the need for zinc through cereals, multivitamins or meat consumption.

4. Cell phone radiation
Researchers from the Cleveland Clinic found more often men used a cell phone, the loweramount of of sperm produced. Separate research by a team from Australia to find the reason. 1.8 gigahertz frequency used in mobile phones will increase the amount of free radicals that can damage sperm cells and reduce the ability of sperm motion.

5. Lack of fiber intake

The team from the University of California found that men who lack folic acid, have sperm with the wrong number of chromosomes 20 percent higher than men would be enough folic acid. The best source of folic acid are green vegetables, like spinach, asparagus, and so forth.

6. Smoke
Smoking not only causes chronic disease, but also affect the amount and quality of sperm. The experts believe, when smoking your body will be flooded by free radicals. Not just cause of cancer cells, it will also trigger DNA damage in sperm.

7. Depression

The experts from Cornell University, a man who took antidepressants at higher risk of DNA damage in sperm. DNA damage will cause reduced fertility and increased risk of defects in the fetus.

Lower Cholesterol with Lime

Lower Cholesterol with Lime - Besides taking the drug from a doctor, there are natural ways to try to reduce levels of fat in the blood. It's easy, even necessary too easy to obtain.

lower cholesterol
- Take a lime, fresh, clean wash.

- Orange juice split four, then thinly sliced.

- Add sliced lemon with its peel into a mug or glass.

- Pour hot water into it until full, then cover tightly.

- Wait approximately 30 minutes, then drink it down.

- Do it twice a day, every morning and at night before bed.

Please note, orange juice does not cause burning in the stomach. Lime is also not be peeled because the skin there is oil content required for treatment. (GHS/wid)

Pomegranate Fruit Juice Inhibition Spread of Cancer Cells

Pomegranate Fruit Juice
Pomegranate Fruit Juice - Los Angeles, the benefits of fruits in overcoming disease re-expressed by cancer experts. This time of pomegranate juice shown to inhibit the spread of prostate cancer to bone tissue. This nutritious fruit is believed also to other types of cancers.

Pomegranates or pomegranate (punica granatum) originated from the Middle East, but has spread to various regions. These plants can live in tropical or subtropical climates and is often planted as an ornamental plant whose fruits are edible.

Efficacy to inhibit the growth of cancer cells revealed in a study at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) several months ago. But at that time the researchers failed to explain the biological mechanisms, including compound what is causing this nutritious fruit.

Even the companies that supply of pomegranates to the study, which is Pom Wonderful Trade Commission had fined by the United States. The reason this company is considered to give a false claim related to the benefits of the pomegranate fruit was not yet clear.

However, recently the same investigators finally managed to reveal that the inhibition of cancer cells induced by fatty acid content in pomegranate. In prostate cancer, these compounds can prevent cancer attacks spread to the surrounding bone tissue.

The success of identifying useful compounds in pomegranates are considered important enough even though the efficacy of this fruit has been known previously. The researchers said the modification of natural compounds, now can be done to improve its effectiveness.

"Because the genes and proteins involved in spread of prostate cancer cells are not much different from other cancer types, the fatty acid in pomegranates can be slightly modified for other types of cancer," said Dr. Manuela Martins-Green from UCLA as quoted from Dailymail, Tuesday (12/14/2010).

Results were presented at the annual meeting of the American Society of Cell Biology 5th (up/ir)KOMPAS

Prevent HIV, Familiarize Healthy Living

Prevent HIV
Prevent HIV, Familiarize Healthy Living - Doctors' HIV Integrated Services Unit "Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital, Samsuridjal Djauzi said the number of children with HIV positive in Indonesia is high. The number of HIV-infected children increases with the increase of people with HIV and AIDS both female and male.
"Because the transmission went on, and testing services to more evenly, making it easier to find out if HIV positive," he said in a discussion in Jakarta on Sunday (12/12/2010).

Therefore, early HIV prevention is needed, said Samsuridjal. One of them with HIV recognize and mode of transmission. "The most important to provide themselves, prevent. For that we need all the community members either women, men, know how transmission and avoid," he said.

Early on, each must get healthy to prevent HIV. For example, by not using a shared toothbrush or use the shaving mustache together with other people.

Also by introducing early to youth about healthy lifestyles, including sexual life. The number of AIDS cases according to Health Ministry data at the end of September reached 22,726 cases with 17,576 of them or 79 percent is productive ages, 15-39 years old.

Be careful, Super Bacteria Threaten World

Super Bacteria Threaten World
Super Bacteria Threaten World - Be careful. Medical experts in Britain warned, there is a new bacteria that threaten human life. These bacteria are classified as super as the most powerful resistance to antibiotics though. Recently, this bacterium was found in a number of hospitals in England.
As reported by the BBC, medical experts also explained that the bacteria that can make an enzyme called NDM-1 were taken by NHS patients who previously flew out of the country such as India and Pakistan to perform cosmetic surgery.

Although currently only found about 50 cases in Britain, experts fear these bacteria will spread globally. For handling, it takes a watchful eye as well as new drugs.

A similar infection was found in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the Netherlands. No wonder then if the international investigators say that the NDM-1 could be a major threat to global health. At present, bacterial infection is spread from one patient to another hospital in the UK.
