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…

Dogs can sniff out Bowel Cancer

February 10, 2011 2 comments

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…

Fat Intake give rise to Depression

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…
