January 30, 2011 2 comments

Food which contain-  “Trans Fats” and “Saturated Fats” can contribute to “Depression”.
Researchers in Spain followed 12,059 people over 6.1 years, analyzing their diets, lifestyles and medical problems.

And the result was:

  • The people who ate the most Trans Fats, which are commonly found in pastries and fast food, had a 48% increased risk of depression compared with people who did not eat Tran’s fats.
  • Individuals who ate a lot of polyunsaturated fats — a healthier type of fat that is found in olive oil, for example — had a lower risk of depression. These findings suggest that “Cardiovascular disease and Depression” may share some common nutritional determinants related to subtypes of fat intake.  Read more…

Sometimes we receive an e-mail which offers that seems too good to be true.

  • Now a day’s Fraud is flourishing/spreading   on the Internet
  • Here are the few common scams to watch for it.

Details of Fake check scams schemes, but generally works in this way:

  1. You place an item for sale on the Internet. The scam artist (usually claiming to be from another country) contacts you about buying it.
  2. The scammer sends you a check. For some reason (possibly a “mistake”), the check is for more than what you are owed.
  3. You are told to cash the check, keep your share and wire the “extra” money to the buyer. What you don’t know is that the check is fake.
  4. Your bank makes the funds available to you within five days (as required by law) – even though the check hasn’t cleared yet. Weeks later, you find out the check has bounced.
  5. You must then reimburse the bank. In the meantime, you have wired the “excess” money to the scam artist and may have already spent the portion that the con artist “paid” you. Read more…

Are you under the thoughts that hand sanitizers keep the germs away?

Well, the reality is, they stop working after just 2 minutes.

A survey suggests that more than half of all Americans think the Antibacterial Gel last a lot longer than it really does and the facts that hand sanitizers don’t offer long-term protection may come as a shock to germi phobes.

“Alcohol sanitizers last only a minute or two and must be reapplied when recontamination occurs,” the New York Daily News quoted Philip Tierno, director of clinical microbiology and immunology at NYU Langone Medical Center, as saying. Read more…

Nanoparticles in shampoo can effect lungs

January 21, 2011 2 comments


 A new study by the University of Edinburgh has shown that tiny particles used in a range of everyday products from computers to shampoo can  adversely affect  the lungs in very different ways.

           Researchers suggest that industrial manufacturers using nanoparticles should be aware of the risks that different types of nanoparticles pose to workers   who handle them.

           What is Nanoparticles?

  • It is a particle of something such as a metal, polymer, or oxide, with dimensions in the nanometer range.
  • It can be 10,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair –
  • These are potentially hazardous to workers handling the chemicals used to make products as they may be at risk of inhaling them. Read more…

January 20, 2011 1 comment

A new study shows that Soy protein lowers total cholesterol and non-HDL (non-high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol significantly more than milk protein in patients with moderately high cholesterol levels.

“Non-HDL cholesterol has been shown to be a somewhat stronger predictor of cardiovascular disease and mortality risk than LDL cholesterol in population studies,” said Elaine Krul, co-author of the study and nutrition discovery lead at Solae. “The fact that soy protein significantly decreased non-HDL cholesterol levels compared to milk protein in this study is very promising.”
