A California school district is teaching 39,000 students that a good night’s sleep can prevent them from contracting sexually-transmitted diseases, including HIV.
This article is saying there's a school at California, they teach students about sexual health with wrong information. They say hanging out in large groups, or sleep well or self respect can avoid STIs. But we all know that is not true. The right thing to do to avoid STIs is to have safe sex, wear condoms or use protective method.
I think this article is quite relevant. Because it relates to us. School education is very important. We learn most of things from school. School has to teach the students right things otherwise it will impact student's future.
Times of India Poor Sleep Increases Heart Attack Risk In Women The Inquisitr Women who get less than six hours of sleep a night are more likely to have a heart attack than women who sleep longer, according to a new study.
This article is saying poor sleep can affect people's hearts, especially in women. Aric Prather, an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of California said poor sleep can increase the level of inflammation. She set up a 5 year study on this. It reported that women with poor sleep showed 2.5 times the inflammation levels of men with poor sleep.
This article is interesting. Because before I read this article I didn't know sleeping is linked to heart diseases. Now after I read this article, I am more aware how lack of sleep can cause damage to our bodies. And it reminds me to sleep well at night. Because often I don't get enough sleep for playing too much game at night.
Sugar fuels cancer. A new study has indicated that blocking dietary sugar can reduce tumor development risk and progression of cancer cells.
For the study, Dr. Cagan and his team engineered fruit flies to express Ras and Src, two important oncogenes, resulting in the development of small head tumors. After feeding the flies a high-sugar diet promoting insulin resistance, they found that high dietary sugar acts together with Ras and Src to increase insulin sensitivity specifically in tumor cells. As MedicalNewsToday reports, “By ramping up signaling of an important pathway called Wingless/Wnt, they increased tumor cells’ insulin receptors to further promote insulin sensitivity. This cascade of activity changed these small, weak tumors and caused them to begin growing aggressively”.
Using these newly identified drug targets (glucose, the RAs/Src oncogenes, and Wingless/Wnt signaling), the researchers identified compounds that could block the process. Using three different drug treatments, the team attacked the three different targets. Together, they “substantially reduced tumor size and progression.” ...
Obesity and type 2 diabetes are preventable lifestyle diseases. These are conditions we control. And if they are creating an environment that fosters prolific tumor growth, we can use that knowledge to combat both cancer and the metabolic disorders that increase the risk of cancer.
A condom acts as a barrier or wall to keep the blood or semen or vaginal fluids from passing from ... (10bucksshop Blog: Choose the right condom to prevent sexually transmitted infections: A condom acts as a barri...
This article tells you how to choose condom wisely. For example, read the package to see if it states it is used for preventing disease. And try use condoms that is made out of latex or rubber. Because Research has shown that latex condoms can prevent the passage of HIV, hepatitis, and herpes viruses, but natural or lambskin condoms may not be able to do this.
This article is very helpful in teaching people how to choose condoms. There're lots of condoms in different types with different use of purposes in the market. And consumers just have to choose the correct one for their purpose. If they need to prevent STIs, then they better choose latex or rubber condoms, and the condoms has to cover the penis. And the language used in this article is not hard which is good.
A research was done in people aged 18 to 45, it shows that people who drinks energy drink have a higher QT interval which means their heart rhythm is faster. If people constantly drink energy drinks, they tend to have irregular heartbeats and increase the chanc of getting heart problems.
Because most energy drinks contain caffeine which is not good for your health when constantly consume it. I really recommend people only consume energy drinks when needed.
Basically this article is arguing whether obesity is a disease or not. The dictionary describes a disease is a part of the body impairs normal functioning and usually appears with symptoms. So some people argue that obesity is a state of people not a disease. Like light- skined people tend to have skin cancer but that doesn't mean they are diseased.
This article presents a very interesting point as it argues obesity is not a disease. However, people have obesity do tend to have diabetes and all other diseases. So whether or not obesity is a disease, it does increase the chance of getting other diseases.
