Intense, passionate feelings of love can provide amazingly effective pain relief, similar to painkillers or such illicit drugs as cocaine, according to a new Stanford University School of Medicinee study.

According to study, love is a very deep, old systems in our brain that involve dopamine — a primary neurotransmitter that influence mood, reward and motivation. As a result it turns out that areas of the brain activated by intense love are the same areas that drugs use to reduce pain,” said Arthur Aron, PhD, a professor of psychology at State University of New York at Stony Brook.

He  has been studying love for 30 years. “When thinking about your beloved, there is intense activation in the reward area of the brain — the same area that lights up when you take cocaine, the same area that lights up when you win a lot of money. Read more…

Believe it or not, dogs can sniff out bowel cancer in breath and stool samples, with a very high degree of accuracy, even in the early stages of the disease, a new research has revealed.

According to researchers, the man’s best friend’s sense of smell is 1,000 times more sensitive than a human’s, and as a result it can apparently pick up chemical compounds specific to certain cancers.

 A labrador detected traces of cancer with more than 90 per cent accuracy from samples provided by volunteers.

In fact, over several months, the researchers in Japan used the labrador to carry out 74 sniff tests. Each test group comprised one sample from a patient with bowel cancer and four control samples from those who were clear. The samples were randomly placed into 5 boxes. Read more…

Fatal Heart Infection Caused By Food-Borne Bacteria (Listeria Monocytogenes)

February 4, 2011 2 comments

 Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine have found that particular strains of food-borne bacteria are able to invade the heart, leading to serious and difficult-to-treat heart infections.
The bacteria Listeria monocytogenes is commonly found in soft cheeses and chilled ready-to-eat products. For healthy individuals, listeria infections are usually mild, but for susceptible individuals and the elderly, infection can result in serious illness, usually associated with the central nervous system, the placenta and the developing fetus.

About 10 %of serious listeria infections involve a cardiac infection, according to Nancy Freitag, associate professor of microbiology and immunology and principle investigator on the study. These infections are difficult to treat, with more than one-third proving fatal, but have not been widely studied and are poorly understood. Read more…
