Magnesium's importance for health is far greater than previously imagined

Magnesium's importance for health is far greater than previously imagined | HEALTH SYSTEMS AND HEALTH CARE DELIVERY | Scoop.it

A new study titled, "3,751 magnesium binding sites have been detected on human proteins," indicates that a deficiency of magnesium may profoundly affect a far wider range of biological structures than previously understood.

 

The proteome, or entire set of proteins expressed by the human genome, contains well over 100,000 distinct protein structures, despite the fact that there are believed to be only 20,300 protein-coding genes in the human genome.  

 

The discovery of the "magneseome," as its being called, adds additional complexity to the picture, indicating that the presence or absence of adequate levels of this basic mineral may epigenetically alter the expression and behavior of the proteins in our body, thereby altering the course of both health and disease.

While the WHO and national health bodies harp on about calcium, it is magnesium that may actually be of far greater importance for our health...

You can't go wrong taking a magnesium supplement. 

DebbyBruck's curator insight, February 28, 2014 4:37 PM
We are like plants. Without magnesium plants could not utilize the sun's light energy. A nice list of magnesium rich foods are provided on the second page. Don't forget homeopathic cell salts containing magnesium are powerful healing agents for many conditions including cramps. Our bodies are fine tuned instruments and each mineral does not work alone. An entire orchestra plays the melodies and harmonies, with all elements working to perfection without our instruction. Trace minerals also play their part in the total balance of our human organism.

5 Health Tech Trends to Watch in 2014

5 Health Tech Trends to Watch in 2014 | HEALTH SYSTEMS AND HEALTH CARE DELIVERY | Scoop.it

If 2013 was the year of wearables and health apps, what’s on tap for 2014?

 

Here are five exciting health tech trends to keep an eye on for the new year.

 

1. Data in the Doctor’s OfficeAccording to Pew Research, 21% of Americans already use some form of technology to track their health data, and as the market for wearable devices and health apps grows, so too will the mountain of data about our behaviors and vitals. Next year, we may see more of this data incorporated into our day-to-day medical care.

2. Smart Clothes

If a wristband or clip-on tracker isn’t part of your look, there’s hope for you in 2014, because a new wave of wearable smart garments will be hitting the stores next year. In fact, market research company Markets and Markets expects sales of smart clothes and fabrics to reach $2.03 billion by 2018.

 

3. Augmented NutritionOf course, if you want to fit into the latest smart fashion, you might need to keep better tabs on what you’re eating. We’ve already seen popular apps such as Fooducate make things easy by letting you scan the barcodes on packaged foods to gather nutrition data. In 2014, we’ll see new technologies that take even more of the guesswork out of counting calories. 4. Virtual House Calls

Virtual house calls also just got a big boost with the recent launch of Google Helpouts, a new marketplace for getting personalized help over live video chat. Although it’s still early days for the new service, you can already browse the Google Helpouts Health marketplace for medical advice, mental health issues, nutrition counseling, weight loss and more. You can even get wellness advice for your pets.

 

5. Health Rewards

If looking and feeling good isn’t enough of a payoff, how about getting paid for getting healthy?

Cutting edge way to get complete nutrition in a delicious protein shake.  Dairy & non- dairy. Chocolate or Vanilla!  I was wondering why my friend would tell me " Call me back in 10 minutes, I'm about to eat my dinner " One day I confronted him about eating too fast. Then he told  me his secret!  Not to mention that he is now a perfect weight &  back in olympic shape!   He has been drinking one to two meals a day.

Brian Altonen's curator insight, December 13, 2013 7:32 AM
Abstract

Fine-scale and longitudinal geospatial analysis of health risks in challenging urban areas is often limited by the lack of other spatial layers even if case data are available. Underlying population counts, residential context, and associated causative factors such as standing water or trash locations are often missing unless collected through logistically difficult, and often expensive, surveys. The lack of spatial context also hinders the interpretation of results and designing intervention strategies structured around analytical insights. This project offers a ubiquitous spatial data collection approach using a spatial video that can be used to improve analysis and involve participatory collaborations.
