The symptoms of dengue fever that you should consider

Symptoms of Dengue Fever - Dengue fever or dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) are acute febril disease found in tropical areas, with geographic distribution similar to malaria.

The disease is caused by one of the four serotypes of the virus from the genus Flavivirus, family Flaviviridae. Each serotype is different enough so that no cross-protection and epidemics caused by several serotypes (hiperendemisitas) can occur. Dengue fever is spread to humans by the mosquito Aedes aegypti.

Here are some of the symptoms of dengue fever:

1. Red Spot
Often at the beginning of fever, no red spots. There are also some cases that are no red spots.

2. High Heat
Heat could fall up, or may not fall at all during the day.

3. Shivering and bone ache
Feeling cold all over and there are certain points on the body's bone ache.

4. Dispose of black water and hard
This phenomenon is seen when platelets are running low

5. Platelets began to fall
Platelet levels may be known by blood tests in the laboratory.

6. Pain when eyes looked to the side
Some friends have this pain when glanced to the left and right side.

7. Neck pain
Sometimes, too, swelling in the neck and sore

If you are a high heat with prolonged (more than 1 day) and not cured by taking drugs, try to go to the nearest hospital and check your blood. If you find you're in platelets below normal limits (normal range: 150000-500000), be careful.

There are ways that can be taken without having to stay in the hospital, but need a strong will to do so. The way it is as follows:

1. Drink water min. 20 medium-sized glasses every day (more is better)

2. Try to lower the heat with hot-lowering medications (eg paracetamol)

3. Some friends and doctors recommend drinking additional ions such as "POCARI SWEAT"

4. Other beverages recommended: red guava juice to increase platelets (some are suggested: Angkak leaves, guava leaves, etc.)

5. Eat nutritious foods and try to eat in quantity that many (though usually of interest to eat would decrease drastically).

Actually, all the above efforts aim to increase body resistance against dengue fever, because it basically does not have dengue certain drugs (and indeed there is no cure for it). Resilience of the body can be seen from the number of leukocytes in the blood. When the leukocytes started to increase (improve), it is usually platelets, which then increases.

If you are able to no.1 of the above business without the slightest less, you do not have to go to the hospital for hospitalization (save it?)

If we are hospitalized, consider the drug presented, because there is no medicine that can cure dengue fever that (except for fever). Infusion is necessary, but do not ever want to be given antibiotics (unless there are other diseases). Tablets are usually given vitamins.

Notice also the results of laboratory every day. In fact, if the platelets had increased over the lower limit of normal (platelets graph does not go down again), had normal body heat back (36'C-37'C), blood pressure (tension) is normal, a sign that you've started to recover, and you've can ask the doctor for outpatient care only.

During the house, trying to drink water as much as possible to keep running. If you are worried and not sure able to outpatient care, keep living your hospitalization. (quoted from various sources)

How to prevent heart disease by Coffee

Do not drink coffee, then heart disease! This layman assumption was not entirely correct. Because the coffee was friends with the heart.

At the conference the American Heart Association (AHA) in San Francisco, plus record number of coffee drinkers. Coffee drinkers have a lower risk for abnormal heart rhythm disease. And there is no indication by sipping a few cups of coffee can increase the risk of Atherosclerosis, or hardening of the blood vessel wall which causes a heart attack. Other Ingredients in coffee, but caffeine can reduce the risk of diabetes for women who regularly drink it.

However, one report found a potential link between drinking coffee with high blood pressure. But do not worry, its effects can still be tolerated.

"The study of heart rhythm was examined 130,054 members of Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program is being treated by a heart rhythm disturbance. About two percent experienced Atrial Fibrillation. However, for drinkers of four cups of coffee per day 18 percent lower risk of heart than those who do not drink coffee, "said Dr. Arthur Klatsky, a senior cardiac consultant.

Another study followed 3000 men and women aged 20 years found no relationship between coffee consumption and atherosclerosis, both male and female, black or white, smokers or nonsmokers.

This was agreed by Jared Reis, Epidemiologi experts from the U.S. National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, said there was no substantial relationship between drinking coffee and an increase or decrease in Atherosclerosis.

Not only is the Women's Health Study explains that diabetes type 2 (diabetes as a lifestyle) experienced fewer coffee drinkers. Researchers compared 359 postmenopausal women who suffer from type 2 diabetes and 359 women without the disease. Found women who drank four cups of caffeinated coffee a day, have a risk of 56 percent lower than those who did not consume coffee.

"Coffee reduces the risk of the effects of caffeine because caffeine hormone binding," said Dr. Liwei Chen, assistant professor of the University of California, Los Angeles.

Cancer Prevention and Early Warning Signs

Cancer disease is very chronic disease, so, we must be careful of it symtomps and early warming. below any article about cancer, may useful to us and can to take it in our life. this is took of http://womenshealth.about.com

A report released December 11, 1997, by the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention reinforces the results of their 1996 report which clearly indicates 50 percent of all cancer is preventable by investigation of realistic means of modifying individual lifestyle factors, public policies, and clinical practices. The 1996 report states that clearly 50 percent of all cancer risks could be reduced by following a modified diet that includes: low- fat, high fiber, and little or no red meat, as well as, through increased exercise, limiting alcohol use, and quitting smoking.

The 1997 report found clear evidence relating the risk of colon cancer and lack of physical activity; 15 percent of all colon cancer cases are preventable by adding just thirty minutes of exercise to your daily schedule. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths, claiming almost 55,000 lives last year alone.

The FDA's recent approval of the new "estrogen light," is a victory for women in the fight against endometrial cancer; one of the most common forms of cancer in women. Current estrogens place women at an increased risk for breast cancer and endometrial cancer. Eli Lilly Co. will sell raloxifene under the brand name Evista. Raloxifene promises to produce the benefits of HRT which reduce osteoporosis without the increased risk of cancer.

In "Safe Sex and Cancer Prevention," former About.com Cancer Guide, Dr. Barry Tepperman said, "Cervical and anal cancers have a strong association with a virus transmitted only by sexual contact, without risks related to blood or body fluids. Cervical cancer is one of the most common lethal malignancies of young women. Epidemiologic studies clearly show that risk of cervical cancer rises as women become sexually active at earlier ages, have more sexual partners, and have unprotected sex more often."

Cancer Prevention Tips

* Exercise regularly: Minimum 30 minutes per day. Moderate regular exercise reduces your cancer risk at least 30 percent.

* Eat a healthy well- balanced diet: low- fat, high- fiber, little or no red meat, and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.

* Quit smoking or, even better, don't start smoking!: Cigarette smoking increases your cancer risk by 30 percent. Is that cigarette really worth dying for?

* Limit your use of alcohol: One drink a day has been found to reduce some health risks, including significantly reducing the risk of heart disease but, even one drink a day may increase the risk of breast cancer by, as much as, 30 percent.

* Smoking combined with alcohol has proven to significantly increase cancer risks for oral cancer, esophageal cancer, and other cancers.

* Maintain regular gynecological examinations: including Pap smears and Mammograms.

* Perform monthly breast self exams.

* Use sunscreen: use an SPF of 15 or higher anytime you're outdoors and avoid being outdoors during the middle of the day.

* Practice Safe Sex: Always use a condom unless you are in a long- term monogamous relationship!
"Exercise is clearly related to a reduced risk of colon cancer," said Dr. Graham Colditz of the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention. "And you keep reducing your risk more with even more activity."

According to the report more than 60 percent of adults do not get enough regular physical activity and almost 50 percent of our children are not getting enough exercise. The report calls for increased physical education in schools and more public funding for safe outdoor areas such as bike paths, playgrounds, and walk ways for children and adults to get more physical activity.

Women can significantly reduce their risk of cervical cancer by seeing their gynecologists regularly for Pap smears and physical examinations. The Pap smear is the only screening tool for cancer which has reduced the number of deaths from any type of cancer. Mammograms should begin usually between the age of 35- 40 for a baseline mammogram. A baseline mammogram establishes a pattern for comparison with future mammograms.

Early Detection, Breast Cancer

The emergence of a lump in the breast area may be an indication of the possibility of a type of breast cancer. But not all lumps mean cancer because they have to be examined further for his assurance in the hospital or doctor.

Another indication of this disease is a lump in the armpit, breast pain, change in color or texture in the breasts, nipples are interested in, the areola (the area around the nipple brown), or on the nipple. In some cases, the detection of breast cancer from discharge from the nipple yellowish, greenish, or pus.

The key to survival is to detect breast cancer early, before he has a chance to spread. One cause of high mortality from this disease due to lack of awareness to detect symptoms that exist. Generally after arriving at the complaints that weight, a new patient consults a doctor who often means the cancer is in advanced stage. Therefore, when the disease has reached an advanced stage, it will be difficult to heal.

Preventing Breast Cancer

One of the breast cancer prevention is a healthy diet. An estimated one out of three cases of breast cancer due to dietary factors. A good diet that will help keep your immune system, and this is the prevention of the most powerful disease. Although not known any food that can cure cancer, eating certain foods and reducing certain other foods can be a preventative action.

Fiber-rich foods, can help reduce levels of prolactin and estrogen, possibly by attaching themselves to these hormones and threw out the body. This can further suppress the phase of carcinogenesis (cancer formation). In addition, reducing the saturated fat diet may reduce the risk. Soybean and fermented soy products without can inhibit tumor growth.

Vegetables rich in vitamin A, like carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, and vegetables, dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale and spring greens, may help. Vitamin A prevents the formation of cancer-causing mutations. As for fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C reduce the risk of breast cancer.

What is Breast Cancer?

 Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the abnormal cell growth in breast tissue person. When you have reached an advanced stage, lifting the breast is sometimes done for the safety of patients. This certainly becomes something frightening for a woman.

Almost all cancers have a specific cause. For example the majority of cases of skin cancer caused by ultraviolet rays of the sun. While lung cancer caused by smoking. But there is no single definitive cause for breast cancer.
Several factors could be the cause of breast cancer. For example genetic factors, environmental, and hormones may contribute to breast cancer. Women are vulnerable to this factor may have a higher risk.

Breast Cancer Risk Factors

No one knows for sure what causes breast cancer. Based on statistical results, most breast cancer patients are women with age above 50 years. This means that the older a person, then the chances of this disease is growing. Another factor that affects the family history. If there are families who suffer from this disease like a mother or siblings the greater the chances. Breast cancer can also be caused by previous cancer in other organs that spread to the breast. Or if there is a history of previous cancer in other organs.

Another thing that can trigger cancer is lifestyle. Often consume foods that contain chemicals or are carcinogens, alcohol, or smoking.

The right way is to brush downward to the front teeth (incisors) the top, brushing towards the top to the bottom front teeth and brush horizontally for molars. Brushing teeth should be longer, because this tooth has the potential to stick leftovers.

4. Mouthwash after meals
Brushing teeth is not possible after we eat, the best way is to rinse out his mouth so that leftovers do not keep sticking and reduce the acid in the dental situation.

5. Use dental floss to remove food scraps
Time food is left, should not be removed by using a toothpick. Use a toothpick can cause a gap between the larger teeth on the side can cause injury to the gums.

6. Choose a toothpaste that contains fluoride
Using toothpaste that contains fluoride. This substance is one of the tooth enamel forming materials. The existence of these substances can prevent tooth decay.

7. Eat fibrous foods
Consuming vegetables or fruits can prove stronger teeth and prevent cavities.

8. Reduce foods containing sugar and flour
This type of food if left on the teeth and the bacteria will cause acids that create cavities.

Tomato, Drugs of Various Disease

Tomatoes, is the easiest plants encountered. The bright color really interesting. In addition to vitamin C and A, plum tomatoes supposed to cure various diseases.

If traced its history, or Lyopercisum esculentum tomato initially found around Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia. In France, the tomato is called 'apple of love' or pomme d'amour. Told as a love apple, because tomatoes are believed able to heal impotence and increase sperm counts and increase agility movements.

Tomatoes are also widely used for dishes, such as soup, juice, pasta, etc.. It was a bit sour and even make your appetite increase. Further studies by DR. John Cook Bennett from Wiloughby University, Ohio, as the first to examine the benefits of tomatoes, in November 1834, shows that tomatoes can cure diarrhea, attacks bile, indigestion and restore the function lever. Other researchers from the Rowett Research Institute in Aberdeen, Scotland, also found other benefits of tomatoes. According to him, a yellow gel surrounding tomato seeds can prevent blood clotting and clotting that can lead to heart disease and stroke.

It is also recognized by the doctors of nutrition, Dr. Leane Suniar Manurung, MSc. Seeing so many benefits of tomatoes, then either consumed any tomatoes at an early age. "Moreover, tomato is also high vitamin C and vitamin A, which is useful to boost immunity." But what kind of tomatoes consumed good? If you look at the market, we can find tomatoes in two colors, namely red and green colors. This color difference shows vitamin content. According Leane, a good tomato is red tomato consumption. Red tomatoes contain vitamin C and vitamin A five times more than the green tomatoes. The more ripe tomatoes, the rich content of vitamins. "Because it was a small child should be accustomed to eating lots of red tomatoes. This is essential for healthy eyes, "says Leane. So, no doubt giving the bullet a little tomato. Since the age of 6 months, a child begins to get used to eat tomatoes mixed with other vegetables. Destroying Free Radicals

In the red pigment in tomatoes, the other has more value. The red color in tomatoes more lycopene, a substance of antioxidants that can destroy free radicals in your body by smoking, pollution and ultraviolet rays. Also, later known lycopene is also efficacious help prevent cell damage that can cause cervical cancer, prostate cancer, stomach cancer and pancreatic cancer. "It was lycopene not only found in tomato, but also in red wine, watermelon and papaya. However, lycopene is the most abundant in tomatoes, "Leane light.

To get the benefits, especially for adults, tomatoes should be eaten every morning as much as one or two. Sour taste in tomatoes comes from citric acid content caused fresh tomatoes, so it can increase appetite. This sour taste is very good when we dokonsumsi experience nausea or consumed by the women who have PMS (Pre Menstrual Syndrome). If you can not take it with a sour taste, especially for those who have ulcer disease, Leane was not advised to consume even though in the form of juice that has added sugar, because it would aggravate the disease condition. Better Prepared.

Unlike the other vegetables more useful if eaten raw, turned out better tomatoes mixed with food or crushed before eating. The researchers found that lycopene in tomatoes was issued more than a tomato eaten directly without being processed first. Unfortunately, despite abundant lycopen content, tomato paste and tomato sauce are sold in the market has a lot of food laced with additives such as dyes or synthetic preservatives. "This additional material fact stimulate the emergence of many free radicals that trigger cancer.

Diet For Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes mellitus is a terrible disease. where, if someone has been attacked diabetes mellitus, then all the other diseases that injuries would be very difficult to be cured or can not even treat. we express the following ways of maintaining healthy diet for diabetes can be overcome.

Now, We will try to explain about how to manage the diet for Diabetes Mellitus. Diabetes mellitus is a disease that characterised by hyperglycaemia, whether it is cause by deficiency of insulin in the human body or diminished effectiveness of insulin it self. There are many cases why the insulin become inactive and hence induces hyperglycaemia, for example due to over production of other hormones which are antagonistic to Insulin such as glucagon, hormones of the pituitary, adrenaline and thyroid. Also due to increased production of substances which inactivate insulin (insulinase and insulin antagonists present in plasma.

The disease is chronic and affects the metabolism of carbohydrate, protein, fat, water and electrolytes. Diabetic Diet for diabetics patient is simply a balanced healthy diet which is vital for diabetic treatment, but sometime many people are they don't understand that these diet consist only diabetic foods. Diabetes mellitus is often found to be associated with other conditions such as blood pressure, obesity, hypercholesterolaemia, cardiovascular disease, kidney disorder and the nervous system.

Dietary control is an integral part of management for the diabetic. The diet should always provide the essentials of good nutrition and adjustments must be made from time to time for changing metabolic needs For example during growth, pregnancy, lactation or modified activity. Dietary control is very important in the treatment of diabetics. There are two simple principles in order to manage or control the diet for the diabetic patients:

1. Eat less (fewer calories) to maintain ideal body weight.

2. Eat low Glycemic Index (GI) foods that do not turn into sugar quickly

Glycemic Index (GI) is food's clasification according to the amount of carbohydrates, This index is a measure of how a given food affects the blood-glucose levels in the two or three hours after eating. Below are the general guidelines to what is considered high or low Glycemic Index (GI) foods.

** Foods with high Glycemic Index (GI), You have to considered do not to eat all this foods :

- Foods containing sugar, honey, molasses, & corn syrup.
- Fruits - bananas, watermelon, pineapple, raisins
- Vegetables - potatoes, corn, carrots, beets, turnips, parsnips
- Breads - all white breads, all white flour products, corn breads
- Grains - rice, rice products, millet, corn, corn products
- Snacks - potato chips, corn chips, popcorn, rice cakes, pretzels
- Pasta - thick, large pasta shapes
- Alcohol - beer, liqueurs, all liquor except red wine
- Cereals - all cereals except those on the Low GI List below

** Foods that contents low Glycemic Index (GI), Recommendate foods for diabetic patients :

- Breads - whole rye, pumpernickel, whole wheat pita
- Whole Fruits - all except the High GI fruits above
- Green leafy Vegetables - all except the High GI vegetables listed above
- Grains - barley, bulgur, kasha
- Snacks - nuts, olives, cheese, pita chips, fried pork rinds
- Cereals - Special K, All Bran, Fiber One, regular oatmeal
- Pasta - whole-wheat pasta, bean threads
- Misc. - olives, eggs, peanut butter (no sugar)
- All meats and All dairy products (no sugars)
- Alcohol - red wine

Disease Diabetes Mellitus (DM)

Disease Diabetes Mellitus (DM), also known as diabetes or blood sugar disease is a chronic disease group characterized by an increase in blood sugar levels as a result of disturbances in the body's metabolic system, where the organ pancreas unable to produce insulin the body needs.

Insulin is one of the hormones produced by the pancreas which is responsible for controlling the number/blood sugar and insulin is needed to change (process) of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into energy needed human body. Lower insulin function in blood sugar levels.

1. Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes Mellitus

Early signs that it is known that a person suffering from DM or diabetes that can be seen directly from the effect of increasing blood sugar levels, which increase blood sugar reaches 160 to 180 mg/dL and urine (urine) diabetic containing sugar (glucose ), so the urine is often surrounded by ants.

People with diabetes generally show signs and symptoms below, although not all patients experience:

1. Number of urine issued more (Polyuria)
2. Often or quickly feel thirsty / thirst (Polydipsia)
3. Excessive hunger or eat a lot (Polyphagia)
4. Increased urine frequency / urine kept (glycosuria)
5. Losing weight is not clear why
6. Tingling / numbness nerve endings in the hands & feet ditelapak
7. Quick tired and weak all the time
8. Myopic vision experience sudden
9. If the wound / etched (korengan) slow healing
Especially 10.Mudah infection of the skin.

Condition drastic sugar levels rapidly decrease will cause a person to become unconscious and even entered the stage of coma. Symptoms of diabetes can develop quickly over time in a matter of weeks or months, especially in a child who suffered from diabetes mellitus type 1.

Another case in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus, they generally do not experience the symptoms above. Even they may not know has suffered from diabetes.

2. Disease Type Diabetes Mellitus

1. Diabetes mellitus type 1
Diabetes type 1 diabetes who are dependent on insulin deficiency where the body of the hormone insulin, known as Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (IDDM). This is due to the loss of insulin-producing beta cells in the islands of Langerhans of the pancreas. Type 1 diabetes is usually found in infants, children and adolescents.

Until recently, type 1 Diabetes Mellitus can only treat with the provision of insulin therapy continuously conducted continuously. Family history, diet and environmental factors influenced the treatment of type 1 diabetes. In type 1 diabetes should be considered controlling and monitoring blood sugar levels, you should use a blood sugar test. Especially in children and toddlers which they very easily become dehydrated, vomiting and often prone to various diseases.

2. Diabetes mellitus type 2
Diabetes type 2 is where the hormone insulin in the body can not function properly, known as Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM). This is because the various possibilities such as defects in insulin production, insulin resistance or reduced sensitivity (response) and sell the body tissue to insulin is indicated by rising levels of insulin in the blood.

There are several theories that articulate the cause of insulin resistance, including obesity factors (obesity). In type 2 diabetes, controlling blood sugar levels can be done with some measures such as diet, weight loss, and the provision of diabetic tablets. If the provision is not maximized tablet treatment response in blood sugar levels, then injecting the drug began to be considered.

3. Blood sugar

Normal blood sugar levels ranging from 70 to 150 mg/dL (millimoles/liter (United Kingdom unit)) or 4 to 8 mmol/l (milligrams/deciliter (United State unit)), Where 1 mmol/l = 18 mg/dl.

However, of course sugar levels increase after eating and decreased at a time when early morning waking. Someone said to have hyperglycemia when the blood sugar levels well above normal values, while hypoglycemia is a condition where a person experienced a decrease in blood sugar values below normal.

Diabetes Diagnosis can be established if the results of the fasting blood sugar level reaches 126 mg/dL or even more, and checking blood sugar after 2 hours of fasting (minimum 8 hours) to reach the level of 180 mg/dl. Meanwhile, blood sugar tests are done at random (as) can help diagnose diabetes when blood sugar values reached levels between 140 mg/dL and 200 mg/dL, even more so when he over 200 mg/dl.

Many blood sugar testing devices that are traded today and can be purchased in many places selling medical devices or pharmacy as the Accu-Chek, BCJ Group, Accurate, OneTouch UltraEasy machine. For patients diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus, it's good for them to be able to buy it.

4. Disease Treatment and Management of Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes generally undergo treatment insulin therapy (Lantus/Levemir, Humalog, Novolog or Apidra) is continuous, but it is by exercising sufficiently and controlling your diet (diet).

In people with type 2 diabetes mellitus, management of medication and treatment focuses on lifestyle and physical activity. Control values in blood sugar levels is the key to treatment programs, namely by reducing the weight, diet, and exercise. If this does not achieve the expected results, the tablet drug delivery would be required. Even giving insulin injections is required when a tablet'm not cope with controlling blood sugar levels.

Strained Brain Not Enough with Games

strained brain

Quality of life can not be obtained in a way that instant. No exception as we aspire to have a brain that stay sharp until the old. When we heard that games like Sudoku or crossword puzzles can help to improve the sharpness of the brain, we were excited to play it straight. But after a month, those efforts began to fade, and eventually disappeared.

Things like this may be different, if we do so with full awareness. Moreover, factors that can help sharpen the brain was not only to his game. If there were a few things you can do, surely you will be more relaxed with it. Ready to put this activity into daily routines?

Playing Scrabble hobby. Games such as scrabble, sudoku, and crossword puzzles, intended to sharpen intelligence. We are so stimulated to remember many words in a relatively short time. Another benefit of this brain teaser, according to Cynthia Green, PhD, director of the Memory Enhancement Program at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, is a stress reliever. Author of Game Plan brainpower this encourages us to make the event a relaxation after work.

Meanwhile, according to Dr. Richard Restak, a clinical professor of neurology at George Washington's Medical Center, video games can also improve the sensor sensitivity and fast response if done wisely. The result, you are able to respond more quickly and more accurately the events that happen simultaneously.

Expand Omega-3 acids. We can enhance the brain by consuming omega-3. Well, we can protected from dementia. Omega-3 can be obtained by diligent eating tuna fish. Tuna fish is also rich in vitamin B12, to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's. Add one or two servings of food into the menu every week. The result, the risk of dementia can be reduced by 30 percent.

Omega-3 also can be obtained from walnuts. Nuts are also enriched with other ingredients that act as antioxidants to block free radicals cause damage to brain cells. In the meantime, blueberries contain antioxidants but also improve brain circuits.

Come to yoga class. This exercise is recommended by many experts. In addition to relaxing, yoga also increases the sharpness of mind and improve brain function thanks to the breathing exercises. Breathing exercises makes our lungs breathe more maximal oxygen useful for maintaining the health of brain cells.

Turn on the left hand. So far, we almost always use right hand to do many things. Occasionally, active with his left hand. For example, for eating, brushing teeth or combing hair. This could train the balance between left and right brain. Therefore, the left hand is controlled by the right brain, while the right hand, left-brain controlled. For a lefty, let's also occasionally switch the right hand.

Learn one word each day. Make this a new habit. When you do this, it means in a year you learn 350 new words or 3,000 words of a decade. Fair is not, because the functional vocabulary of the average adult is only about 10,000 words. According to scientists, learn new words involving language centers in the brain, the frontal lobe, and memory circuits.

Enjoy the art. Music will enhance the language and verbal skills, while the instrumental music will enhance the ability of the brain. Playing the instrument is also improving the agility of the fingers, that would increase longevity.

Keep a healthy weight. It is important to keep your body stay fit, because it has found that obesity is the biggest cause of dementia diseases in the elderly. Most important, obesity causes a decrease in functional ability in humans, such as intelligence, mental acuity, cognitive flexibility, and concentration.

Walk. Walk along the 1.6 km per day will reduce the tendency of developing dementia by 50 percent. If you do not have enough time, brisk walking for 45 minutes three times a week will also prevent the brain changes associated with age.

Sleeping during the day. Short nap for 20 minutes was enough to improve the memory, like when we sleep at night. Lie also improve your mood, restore concentration, and enhance creativity.

Master the new skills. Find something that interests you, and learn new things until they reach an expert level. For example, learning a foreign language, playing music, sports games, and so forth. This activity will enhance the long-term memory and cognitive reserve.

In a smaller scale, you can also challenge yourself to solve the puzzle, or memorizing a shopping list. A better memory will also enhance the imagination and creativity.

Bananas Can Inhibit HIV ?

Experts indicate, bananas have a substance that has the potential to become an obstacle to HIV infection. These findings are expected to open a new window in the treatment of prevention of HIV infection has yet to find a cure.

Researchers from the University of Michigan Medical School are interested in lectins, chemicals that are naturally in plants, because of its ability to stop the chain reaction of various types of infections. Laboratory test results show, BanLec, lectins found in bananas, as effective as anti-HIV drugs at this time.

A new way to stop the spread of HIV is absolutely necessary. We have a number of new HIV infections exceeds the number of individuals who received antiretroviral drugs, namely 2.5 to 1. In fact, there are no signs of an HIV vaccine would be present in the near future.

At present the use of condoms is still so prevention of HIV transmission is most effective when used consistently and correctly. Other prevention strategies are also effective means to prevent transmission through the vagina and rectum using a drug that prevents HIV entry into target cells.

Research conducted by Michigan State University researcher shows how lectins can identify the attackers from outside the body, such as viruses, and attack him as a pathogen, can be developed to identify the HIV virus.

Besides having the same potential anti-HIV drugs currently available, the banana lectins are also much cheaper to produce as a drug that can reach the wider community. Lectins from banana is believed to be more effective when used in preventive medicine components of the virus that spread the genitals or anus.

"The problem for anti-HIV drugs is the ability of the virus to mutate and become resistant. However, it can be prevented by lectins. Lectins can be attached to the sugar found in various points of HIV-1 envelope and the estimated need of mutation for the virus to multiply get it, "said Erwin J Goldstein, PhD, professor of biological chemistry.

Macrophages - Eater Antigen That Protects HIV

You know if our antibodies do not work alone in maintaining immunity (immune system) and resist the attack antigens (foreign objects) that come from outside. There are other cells called 'Macrophage' which assist in keeping our Immune system.

Macrophages are cells produced by the network contained in the blood as Monocytes. Macrophages derived from cells in the spinal cord of the Promonosit then divides into monocytes and circulate in the blood. Macrophages derived from the Greek word meaning "Big Eater". with the size of 21 micrometers in diameter.

Macrophages are large cells with phagocytosis ability, which means "cell eating" can be equated with pinositosis which means "cell drinking". Phagocytosis is the ability to absorb and destroy microorganisms (bacteria or foreign substances). Way macrophages to destroy (eat) bacteria or foreign matter is by forming the cytoplasm when bacteria or foreign objects attached to the cell surface of macrophages, and then it curved into the cytoplasm of the bacteria, or wrapped the foreign body, cytoplasm bulge will fuse together into one so bacteria or foreign objects get caught in the vacuole. Lysosomes that have the ability to break down the material that comes from within and from outside will be merged with the vacuole so that bacteria or foreign substances will be destroyed.

Macrophages have a function or a primary role for eating and digesting particles together with lysosomes is related to defense and repair functions, another function is to produce IL (Inter Leukin) governing duty-B cells and T cells from lymphocytes and mobilize the body's defense system Another, also macrophages sekretori cells that can produce tumor necrosis factor (TNF = tumor necrosis factor) that can kill tumor cells, also produced some important substances including enzymes (lysozyme, elastase).

Tues Macrophages have a free and fixed macrophages. Free macrophages are cells that are able to move freely, was found in interstitial tissue macrophages and histiosit form. While macrophages remained, unable to move freely as free macrophages, interstitial tissue was found in the spleen, lymph nodes, and in the liver.

But this has no effect on the HIV virus. According to the study of this virus can not neutralize the "Macrophage". In fact, Macrophage is a place for HIV to protect themselves from the other antibodies and antigens. Macrophages is one of the first cell in the infection by HIV. Macrophages also serve as spreaders of HIV to various cells and other tissues.

Naegleria - Deadly Disease, Destroyer Brain System

Now we have to be careful when we swim in a place of recreation. Because there is the Naegleria. Anyone know not, what is Naegleria. This one disease is not so popular, especially in Indonesia. What else Infectious disease is very rare in the find. But very carefully, if we contract the disease within 1 week it was flying lives. In addition because this disease has not been found the cure, this disease is also spelled out the infection quickly.

Naegleria is a living amoeba in fresh water of hot water. The disease is the cause of this amoeba called Naegleria fowleri. Fowleri derived from the name of the inventor "Dr.'s Fowler". Amoeba is usually available at:

* Lakes, Rivers, and other natural resources
* Source of Earth's hot water
* The swimming pool is poorly maintained
* Land

From the year 1998-2007 reported 33 new infections in the United States. There are currently no reports Naegleria in Indonesia. Although there has been no report we must remain cautious. This amoeba is usually entered through the nose and then attack and destroy brain cells and the sum-sum spine.

In the early stages of Naegleria infection is more similar to bacteria mininghitis. Initial symptoms of headache, fever, nausea, vomiting, and stiff neck. Then there was a lack of attention to the surroundings, loss of balance, convulsions and hallucinations. After the deaths within 3 - 7 days.

One way to anticipate, so we are not infected Amoeba are:

Avoid activities related to water in the warm body of fresh water, hot water, and thermally-polluted water such as water around power plants.

1. Avoid activities associated with water in warm freshwater during periods of high water temperatures and low water levels.
2. Hold the nose shut or use nose clips when taking part in activities related to the warm water in fresh water bodies such as lakes, rivers, or hot springs.
3. Avoid digging or stirring the sediment while taking part in activities related to the water is shallow, warm freshwater areas.

So be careful when ya friends go swimming in the open. Let us not become the next victim of this disease.

Detecting Breast Tumors with Flashlight (Breastlight)

Women may be a little excited because it was able to detect breast tumors themselves only with a flashlight to illuminate only the breast with a red flashlight. The Breatlight, so the name of the device, equipped with a LED light that can be expected to detect breast tumors with accuracy up to 96 percent. Thus, this tool got a success rate greater than mammograph. Mamograph is one of the detection of breast tumors are usually performed by the hospital with accuracy of about 60 to 85 percent. The breaslight can detect very small lumps ranging from 7mm where this can not be done by Mammograph.

The Breastlight is suitable for all women especially those who feel ashamed if have to check her breasts every month to the hospital. According to Dr Sarah Burnett, consultant radiologist at King Edward VII Hospital, London, The Breastlight works by illuminating the breast tissue with red light.

"The light will be illuminated red blood cells and red blood vessels so that all parts of the breast will look like a point clear of a road map or a network. When a tumor is found in a woman's breasts, a blood vessel will look bigger than others and will appear darker area when illuminated with light, "said Dr. Burnettseperti quoted from the Telegraph, Tuesday (26/1/2010).

How to use the tool The Breastlight quite easy. First of all, users must be in a dark room. While standing, place the flashlight is just below the breast and then switch to red lights and illuminate all the breast tissue. For the healthy breast, blood vessel tissue are small and thin. But to have a breast tumor, will look spots or dark areas around the breast blood vessels. By considering the development of these spots, known whether the tumor will grow or not from day to day.

Although highly beneficial for women, The Scottish Breast Cancer Campaign urged the parties concerned not to sell pharmaceutical equipment because they think it can trigger a sense of lazy women to check themselves into the doctor and his own conclusions that may be wrong. "It was indeed helpful, but it is feared that many women who own and concluded that the results could be wrong to interpret the results of its radiation.

Besides, no one can guarantee a tool that really safe and accurate. Or a woman might find herself affected by breast cancer tumor or from the results of the examination, but instead of shame and hide it so that would not be seeing doctors, "said one opponent of the Breastlight.

Nevertheless, based on survey results of Sunderland City Hospital, many women who love this flashlight denggan presence. 88 percent of women will feel more confident with the tools The Breastlight and 84 percent felt the Breaslight easy to use.

Urethral Infection

Urinary tract infection or UTI is a health problem serious enough for the millions of people each year. UTI is an infection disease number 2 of the most attacking humans on earth. Generally, this disease attacks women but often also found men who suffer from UTIs.

Or urinary system urinary system consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. Among the four organs, the kidney is the most plays. Functioning kidney to filter waste from the blood vessels, regulate fluid balance, and produce several hormones. Ureteric function filtered drain the kidney to the bladder to be stored temporarily and when the bladder is full it will be released to the outside world through the urethra channel.

Every adult average produce from one to 2 liters of urine per day depending on weather conditions and the amount of fluid intake.

Organs Transplantation in Humans

Heart Transplantation in Humans

Transplant is the transfer of cells, tissues or organs from one donor life to others or the recipient. Or transplantation from one part of the body to other body parts such as liver transplantation, with the aim to return liver function has been lost. Transplant can provide a significant advantage for those who suffer from diseases that can not be cured. Blood transfusion is a transplant of the most frequently performed.

Liver transplant success rate is lower than kidney transplant, but 70-80% recipients survive for at least 1 year. Those who survive the most is the recipient of his heart had suffered damage from primary biliary cirrhosis, hepatitis or drug use that is toxic to the liver. Liver transplantation as a treatment for liver cancer is rarely successful. Cancer is usually re-grow on the transplanted liver or other organs and less than 20% of recipients who survived for 1 year. What is surprising is that the reaction of rejection in liver transplant rejection reaction is not as good as in other organ transplants (such as kidney and heart).

But after the surgery should be immunosupresan given drug. If the recipient have an enlarged liver, nausea, pain, fever, jaundice or have liver function abnormalities can be identified from the results of blood tests, it can be done biposi needle. Biopsy results will help determine whether the transplanted liver has been rejected and whether the drug dose should be increased immunosupresan.

Organ transplants typically involve a suitable donor search, due to potential risks of surgery, use of drugs immunosupresan the potent, the possibility of rejection by the recipient's body and the possibility of complications or death. For those vital organs such as heart, lungs, liver, kidney or bone marrow) is not working properly and function can not return to normal, then the organ transplant may be the only opportunity for survival.

Tissue or organ donor may come from other people who are still living or recently dead. Is the preferred tissue derived from the people who are still alive because of the high success rate. But the heart, liver, lung and eye components (cornea and lens) can only come from someone who had just died, and usually by accident rather than because of illness. Part of the liver tissue have also been transplanted from a donor who was still alive. Transplant organs from living donors performed within a few minutes after the organ removed. Some organs last only for a few hours outside the body, whereas other organs can be stored in a refrigerator for several days.

Yellow Disease/Jaundice In Infant

What is Jaundice?

Jaundice is a disease that occurs in a few days after birth. Usually causes the baby's skin, eyes and mouth yellow. Yellow color is caused by bilirubin.

Bilirubin is made when the body releases blood cells red old. This is a normal process that happens for the rest of our lives. After that bilirubin into the intestine and kidney and whole body. If too much bilirubin is released into the body of the baby then it causes the yellow color is called Jaundice.

Jaundice is common in infants and is usually not a dangerous thing.

Why babies can be affected by Jaundice disease?

Red blood cell cycle is shorter in infants than adults. This means more bilirubin is released through your baby's liver. Sometimes the baby's heart yet mature enough to handle the amount of excess birubin.

Jaundice occurs when the baby's liver can not remove bilirubin from the blood quickly. Excess bilirubin that can not be out of the body and then assembled on the white skin of the eyeball.

This incident is common in infants with the following conditions:

· Infants born prematurely

· Infants who have a different blood type with his mother

· Infants who have abnormalities in the liver and other health disorders.

· Dehydrated babies.

· Breast-fed infants

How do the characteristics of the affected infant Jaundice?

You should see the color changes in your baby's skin. You should also check the whites of your baby's eyes and the inside of your mouth is pink. If it's yellow you may be exposed Jaundice infant.

When my son was exposed to the disease check with your doctor gently pressing the skin on the chest with a finger and it looks different colors. White fluorescent light is usually difficult for us to see differences in color, so you might check at the time of day.

Here are some of the symptoms if your baby is affected by Jaundice:

1. Baby's skin and whites of the eyes yellowish. Infants also may have yellowish on mucous membranes, such as the gums and the tongue or on the hands and feet nails.

2. Urine dark yellow

3. Looked tired and somewhat cranky

4. Your baby is less liquid/drink

How Jaundice disease treatment

If bilirubin levels are not too high usually does not need treatment. Usually doctors recommend to give breast milk or formula more often.

Just sharing the experience, when my son is a doctor having to give drugs (do not know his name) and I was advised to move the baby box/bed near the window so baby tekena morning sun. Doctors advised against tekena rays directly, but through the glass window. Apply approximately ½ - 1 hour with a note, the time between the hours of 7 to 9 am. Do not forget to give as much breast milk or infant.

Is Jaundice Dangerous for babies?

In babies born healthy and no abnormalities, jaundice is not a serious problem. But in any case a very high bilirubin amounts can be dangerous. This can cause the baby suffered brain damage.

Check into your child's doctor to check bilirubun levels, if necessary, the doctor will give medicine. This is usually to prevent the level is not too high.

How long Jaundice usually happens?

The length is different for each baby. Usually the number of bilirubun increase in 3 - 4 days after birth first, then slowly decreased. Breast-fed babies are usually affected by mild jaundice for a little longer than babies fed on formula milk. But this will not reduce the myriad of good milk.
