Why do we pick our nose?

Why do we pick our nose? | Anatomy & Physiology articles | Scoop.it
Picture this: you're driving late at night. There's not another soul on the road, when suddenly you have this annoying feeling in one of your nostrils. You look around to check if there really isn't anyone around who might see what you're about to do. You reach up to your nose, and you pick it. Feeling instantly better, you drive on as if nothing has happened.

This article talks about how pungent can make your pee smell funny.The result of the smell is from the metabolism of asparagusic acid, found in asparagus. They evaporate easily tats why you get that smell.some people can smell it but some cant. hopefully i cant because i dont want to smell it thats for sure.

Chemicals in Fast Food: Should You Be Worried?

A new study suggests another reason to avoid fast food.

Megan Harrill's comment, April 27, 7:48 PM
Summary: Fast food is bad for you in the first place, but now a chemical called phthalates is another reason to avoid these foods. Doctors took urine samples and the people who had eaten fast food the previous day had more phthalates in their system 24-40 percent more.
Megan Harrill's comment, April 27, 7:53 PM
Reaction: My mom doesn't eat fast food much and my dad does eat it more often and as much as I have eaten fast food, if it has not killed me yet, it probably never will. If I eat fast food three meals a day everyday I would be worried but if you eat fast food once in a blue moon, you should be fine. This also depends on what place you eat at, Subway probably has less phthalates than McDonalds does.

Studies found the regular coffee drinkers that drink less than 5 cups a day have a lower risk of dying early from normal causes. Researchers studied almost 210,000 men and women. Researchers say that coffee consumptions arent completely reliable.Studies show that coffe consumption can be incorporated into a healthy life style.

Rebecca Stover's comment, October 6, 2015 8:51 PM
This article is very insteresting and informal. It's about how some scientists have come up with a way to test and know if a child has dyslexia. Most of the article is about a girl in second grade who struggled with school and was soon diagnosed with dyslexia. She always got passed up by her classmates in her reading and she would be very frustrated and have a "fit" while doing homework. Dyslexia is hard because it is frustrating for the children, they know what to do and they are cable of doing it but the way their brain works it makes them incapable of doing what they desire. It's good that they have made a test to be able to tell early on if your child has dyslexia instead of having them struggle without a clue as to why. This article was very informational for me because I don't think I know any dyslexic people and this kind of enlightened me on that subject
Nicole Wynne's comment, November 18, 2015 4:54 PM
This article talks about how some children with dyslexia need different methods of learning compared to those without dyslexia. A professor by the name of Maryanne Wolf discusses how we are able to read and how children with dyslexia read. In the article it also talks about how signs of dyslexia start showing till the child is in 3rd grade and up. I found this article interesting because I didn't know dyslexia was affected by numerous things, I thought they were just born that way.
Cyanne Silvers's comment, January 6, 8:14 PM
This article has made me informative of Dyslexia and how many children have this. Also how we are not born with it and its not a disability. A very interesting article because how some parents seem to push off that their child might very well have dyslexia is not that shocking, but also doesn't benifit the child nor parents.

Alzheimer's appears to be spreadable by a prion-like mechanism

Alzheimer's appears to be spreadable by a prion-like mechanism | Anatomy & Physiology articles | Scoop.it
Brain plaques may have been seeded by contaminated hormone extracts from cadavers.

 

Only a decade ago, the idea that Alzheimer’s disease might be transmissible between people would have been laughed off the stage. But scientists have since shown that tissues can transmit symptoms of the disease between animals — and new results imply that humans, at least in one unusual circumstance, may not be an exception.


The findings, published in this issue of Nature, emerged during autopsy studies of the brains of eight people who had died of the rare but deadly Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD;Z. Jaunmuktane et al. Nature 525, 247–250; 2015). They contracted it decades after treatment with contaminated batches of growth hormone that had been extracted from the pituitary glands of human cadavers. Six of the brains, in addition to the damage caused by CJD, harboured the tell-tale amyloid pathology that is associated with Alzheimer’s disease.


“This is the first evidence of real-world transmission of amyloid pathology,” says molecular neuroscientist John Hardy of University College London (UCL). “It is potentially concerning.”


If confirmed, the findings raise the spectre that tens of thousands of other people treated with the human growth-hormone (hGH) extracts might be at risk of Alzheimer’s. And although there is no suggestion that Alzheimer’s could be contracted through normal contact with patients, some scientists worry that the findings may have broader implications: that Alzheimer’s could be passed on by other routes through which CJD can be transmitted, such as blood transfusions or contaminated surgical instruments.


CJD is one of several neurodegenerative diseases caused by an infectious, misfolded protein, or prion, called PrP. Its misfolded shape makes it sticky, so it forms clumps. Scientists now believe that Alzheimer’s could also be triggered by a similar misfolding, in this case of the peptide amyloid-β, with the disease’s plaques growing from small amyloid-β ‘seeds’. Mice and marmosets have developed plaques when their brains were injected with brain extracts containing amyloid-β; in mice, plaques developed even when the extracts were injected into the animals’ bellies.

Nicole Wynne's comment, October 12, 2015 5:31 PM
I found this article interesting. In the article, it starts off by talking about a study done with 8 cadavers who died of Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease and with 6 of them being associated with Alzheimer's disease. As stated "If confirmed, the findings raise the spectre that tens of thousands of other people treated with the human growth-hormone (hGH) extracts might be at risk of Alzheimer’s." shows us that this may cause problems in the future as these cases increase. Some things that could cause this are simple like blood transfusions and contaminated surgical instruments. CJD is formed by a misfolded protein which scientists think could also be connected to Alzheimer’s. If things like this increase, it could very well prove problematic to the development of our society.

Oncolytic Viruses: A New Class of Immunotherapy Drugs against Cancer

Oncolytic Viruses: A New Class of Immunotherapy Drugs against Cancer | Anatomy & Physiology articles | Scoop.it
Oncolytic viruses represent a new class of therapeutic agents that promote anti-tumour responses through a dual mechanism of action that is dependent on selective tumour cell killing and the induction of systemic anti-tumour immunity. The molecular and cellular mechanisms of action are not fully elucidated but are likely to depend on viral replication within transformed cells, induction of primary cell death, interaction with tumour cell antiviral elements and initiation of innate and adaptive anti-tumour immunity. A variety of native and genetically modified viruses have been developed as oncolytic agents, and the approval of the first oncolytic virus by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is anticipated in the near future. This Review provides a comprehensive overview of the basic biology supporting oncolytic viruses as cancer therapeutic agents, describes oncolytic viruses in advanced clinical trials and discusses the unique challenges in the development of oncolytic viruses as a new class of drugs for the treatment of cancer.

Madison Totushek's curator insight, September 22, 2015 7:25 PM

This article was a very good read for me, especially since I have ties of losing people to cancer. Any cancerous medical advancement makes me happy to see because this epidemic has affected millions of people worldwide, and even more people including the families who have lost their loved ones to this battle. This article was talking about this new therapeutic agent that promote anti tumor responses, which basically kill the primary cancerous cells. I think this can be especially beneficial to those who have had their tumors metastasis and have spread to throughout their lymph nodes and have the ability to reappear anywhere by random stimulation. This product still needs to be approved by the FDA, but I am hopeful that it will have a huge impact on those who are battling this disease.

This article gets an insight on how scientists in Germany recently discovered blink-associated resetting movement (BARM). How this happens is that whenever our eyes looking at a rotating object, they restablise whenever we blink. The scientists thought that blinking could stop tOKN (torsional optokinetic nystagmus), which is why the German scientists were doing this expirement. It turns out that tOKN is just the eyes jumping directions at the sense of motion with a rotating object. My opinion on this is that this article has really surprised me about this new discovered function of our eyes. I never knew this really existed or even thought about this before reading this! I picked this article because I like learning about recent discoveries in science, especially with the body and brain, and I would like to see more recent discoveries scooped.

This article talks about cellulite some people call it cottage cheese. its basically fat underneath the skin. How do you cure this? Collagen holds in the fat but as you get older it starts to go threw the tissues. That causes a dimpled, lumpy appearance on the skin. sounds not so good looking. Getting a filler injected into a wrinkle will puff up the area helps eliminate it. Overall this article was very inserting now i know what it is.

Peyton Alexis's comment, November 6, 2015 10:48 AM
So this article basically says that if you feed your baby a variety of different solid foods at a tunger age then they might not develop an allergy to that food. I honestly don't think that this could work because the baby could develop the allergy either way but I'm not a scientist si I don't know for sure. It would be worth a try and it seems like this could be related to the placebo I affect so it is just going to have to be tested. It was a really interesting article to read though and I enjoyed it!
Nicole Wynne's comment, November 11, 2015 2:52 PM
This article is about when you should start feeding your baby solid foods. In the article it tells us about how babies used to be given solid food at 4 months, but now recent reports have said to wait till 6 months of age. It is said that not all parents in the UK follow the 6-month rule but hey should at least avoid foods that people are commonly allergic to. This article also states that different babies require different needs so when they start going for solid food before 6 months, it is for the parents to decide.
Brian sedano's comment, March 16, 10:39 PM
This article is about babies getting a food allergy and what could possibly be done to prevent it. Most moms follow a 6-month wait rule to feed their babies solid food but recent studies show that if you give your baby solid foods at 4 months they may be less likely to develop a food allergy. Also pregnant moms are told to stay away from peanuts and other common allergenic foods but more recent studies show that it is encouraged to eat it to prevent allergies. My opinion on this is that if allergies being prevented from the steps taken is a proven fact then I absolutely believe people should follow the steps anything over a 50% chance is better than your child growing up with a food allergy. If these measures can't help or benefit "my child" then why waste my time doing them.

The fact that the brain has the body parts criss-crossed, having the right side being controlled by the left, and the left side being controlled by the right is simply mind blowing. Being right or left brain dominant would be hard to accomplish due to the fact that we use both side fluently. Also we have to exersise both during school with the many aspects hitting both sides throughout the day, during math class we strengthens the left side of the brain, with music and art, the right side is strengthened. Having both sides work in unison would be very hard to accomplish due to the fact that the two sides have very different uses processes.

The affects of this disease are as stated in the article: " the extensor muscles of the back arch backwards and lock, and the arms flex to the chest with fists clenched. The sustained muscle contractions in the back are so powerful that they can break the spine. The crushing muscles of mastication clamp down to form the hallmark of the disease, lockjaw. An unnerving and unintentional grin that bears the teeth, known as risus sardonicus, results from contracted facial muscles".

Vaccinations have stopped the spread of so many illnesses and it is hard for modern people to imagine the large numbers of deaths and lingering effects that some of these diseases caused.

This article talks about a test that was done to prove that smallpox are no longer around. There were 12 children used, and in my opinion, the parents must have been terrified. These kids "had been purposefully inoculated with virulent smallpox matter in order to make a public test of a new medical discovery—vaccination." as stated in the article. They were released 15 days later with no signs of smallpox. This test was conducted in 1809. I found this really odd. Smallpox was around for most of history, and suddenly it is gone.
