Groundbreaking Study Finds Turmeric Extract Superior to Prozac for Depression

Groundbreaking Study Finds Turmeric Extract Superior to Prozac for Depression | KnowledgeHustlings | Scoop.it
A groundbreaking new clinical study proves that the turmeric extract known as curcumin is at least as effective as Prozac in treating serious depression.

 

The research was performed at the Department of Pharmacology, Government Medical College, Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India, and involved patients diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD).  The objective of the trial was to compare the efficacy and safety of curcumin with fluoxetine (Prozac) in 60 patients diagnosed with MDD. Subjects were randomized to receive either a six week treatment with fluoxetine (20 mg) and curcumin (1000 mg) individually or their combination.

 

We observed that curcumin was well tolerated by all the patients. The proportion of responders as measured by the HAM-D17 scale was higher in the combination group (77.8%) than in the fluoxetine [Prozac] (64.7%) and the curcumin (62.5%) groups; however, these data were not statistically significant (P = 0.58).

 

Interestingly, the mean change in HAM-D17 score at the end of six weeks was comparable in all three groups (P = 0.77). This study provides first clinical evidence that curcumin may be used as an effective and safe modality for treatment in patients with MDD without concurrent suicidal ideation or other psychotic disorders.

 

If the results of this relatively small trial are applicable to a wider population, this is truly groundbreaking news.

Could Myelin Damage From Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Field Exposure Help Explain the Functional Impairment Electrohypersensitivity? A Review of the Evidence

Could Myelin Damage From Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Field Exposure Help Explain the Functional Impairment Electrohypersensitivity? A Review of the Evidence | KnowledgeHustlings | Scoop.it

Overall, evidence from in vivo and in vitro and epidemiological studies suggests an association between RF-EMF exposure and either myelin deterioration or a direct impact on neuronal conduction, which may account for many electrohypersensitivity symptoms.

 

The most vulnerable are likely to be those in utero through to at least mid-teen years, as well as ill and elderly individuals.

Beyond the hype and the greed, Bitcoin is powered by a genuine technical breakthrough, to a degree I did not properly appreciate when I first started writing about it.

 

The “blockchain” — the engine on which Bitcoin is built — is a new kind of distributed consensus system that allows transactions, or other data, to be securely stored and verified without any centralized authority at all, because (to grossly oversimplify) they are validated by the entire network.

 

Those transactions don’t have to be financial; that data doesn’t have to be money. The engine that powers Bitcoin can be used for a whole array of other applications…

UK Health chief slams statins: Millions face terrible side effects as prescription escalates

UK Health chief slams statins: Millions face terrible side effects as prescription escalates | KnowledgeHustlings | Scoop.it

LEADING doctors are demanding an end to the widespread prescription of statins, warning that one in four Britons will soon be at risk of terrible side effects from the controversial heart drugs.

 

Those sounding the alarm include Dr Kailash Chand, deputy chairman of the British Medical Association, who suffered “awful” muscle pains while taking statins and claims that plans to prescribe them to millions more adults will “only benefit drug companies”.

 

Dr Chand last night warned that giving the drugs to low-risk patients was “a commercialisation device” and not in their interests. Many experts say it is unnecessary to “medicalise” a problem which could be controlled with simple dietary changes, pointing to a study showing that eating an apple a day cuts cholesterol levels as effectively as taking statins.

A long overdue revolution for wind power generation!

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, December 13, 2013 1:13 AM

This is serious stuff and works. SheerWind is not the only one. Attemps are on to recycle hot wind generated by industries and convert to powerful vortices to drive turbine. The concept is explained here: 

http://www.geek.com/news/energy-from-man-made-tornados-atmospheric-vortex-engine-receives-funding-1532607/

It captures, accelerates and concentrates wind in a tower, increasing the velocity of wind. "By concentrating and accelerating wind, we create a similar effect to natural wind corridors used by traditional wind towers. We are able to exceed current industry standards and make wind power costs competitive with fossil fuels," says Cyndi Lesher,

Now, this concept is similar to water vortex based electricity generation which has proven to be successful, cost effective, and easily manageable.

One commentator says: "This is the most fascinating idea that I have seen for making electricity from the wind. It would seem to avoid a number of problems that exist with the really tall windmills. It should reduce the bird and bat kill. Maintenance should be cheaper and safer as there are no large turbine blades located 200 feet in the air and tied to the generator, also 200 feet in the air. Thus no large blades or ice from the blades to fly off and travel hundreds of feet endangering people and property. Fire fighting for an electrical fire in the generator could be done as it is on the ground. The noise level should be much less than the large wind turbines, and hopefully, there would be no infrasound (0 - 20 hertz), which people cannot hear, but is a problem. It would be interesting to see the results, performance, noise, electrical output and cost etc. of a full scale prototype built and operated at some location."

OK, we still have some distance to cover before such contraption is fully tested and scaled up.

Can Water Cure Disease?

Can water cure disease?

 

Throughout history and across all cultures, there are stories of water that can heal. We have identified a possible basis.

 

Through a decade of research at the University of Washington, we have uncovered evidence for a fourth phase of water, beyond the commonly known solid, liquid, and vapor. This fourth phase could be the root of water’s purported healing properties.

 

Many drinking waters contain some fourth-phase water. Those with the most may produce the most health benefits. Testing this hypothesis constitutes a major thrust of this scientific effort. We will evaluate the benefits of pure fourth-phase water (produced by the filterless filter), as well as various other waters deemed likely to have health benefits.

Moscow-based IT start-up Intersoft Eurasia has developed a tiny mobile ‘radiation watchdog to monitor radiation levels and alert users to hazardous changes.

 

Its $10-50 Do-Ra dosimeter-radiometer can sit either inside or outside a standard cell or smart phone; helps check radioactivity in humans, livestock and property; and is GLONASS/GPS-compatible. With Sony Eriksson and Fujitsu already in the know and the market estimated in the “billions”, the 20-month-old startup looks like it may have a tiger by the tail. 

Word came last week that Intersoft Eurasia was in talks with Sony Ericsson and Fujitsu over the embedding of its Do-Ra radiation monitoring chip and software into their cell and smart phones.

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

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

Researchers develop new cloaking technology using nano antennas | KnowledgeHustlings | Scoop.it

Two researchers at the University of Toronto have found a new way to cloak an object using tiny antennas. They're not making objects invisible to the human eye but making them undetectable by radar.

 

The nanoantennas they used radiate an electromagnetic field that prevents waves from reflecting back to the radar detector. The small antennas can be even printed flat to create a flexible skin for the desired object.

 

While the technology only works for radio waves at the moment, the researchers say the same principles could be applied to other waves such as light waves, which could potentially hide an object from the human eye...

Li-Fi: Data transmission using visible light instead of microwaves

Li-Fi: Data transmission using visible light instead of microwaves | KnowledgeHustlings | Scoop.it

UK researchers say they have achieved data transmission speeds of 10Gbit/s via “li-fi” – wireless internet connectivity using light. The researchers used a micro-LED to transmit 3.5Gbit/s via each of the three primary colours – red, green, blue – combined that makes over 10Gbit/s.

 

Li-fi, or “light fidelity”, promises to be cheaper and more energy-efficient than existing wireless radio systems given the ubiquity of LED bulbs and the fact that lighting infrastructure is already in place.

 

Such a technique could one day work with existing (LED) light bulbs, promising higher speeds than current WiFi and increased security — since visible light can’t penetrate solid objects like walls...

Such a technology could take over from WiFi and be not only faster and more secure, but also be more compatible with human health as it eliminates microwaves.

Concerns over adverse health effects are hindering WiFi adoption in schools.

A GROUNDBREAKING new Irish technology which could be the greatest breakthrough in agriculture since the plough is set to change the face of modern farming forever.

 

The technology – radio wave energised water – massively increases the output of vegetables and fruits by up to 30 per cent.

 

Not only are the plants much bigger but they are largely disease-resistant, meaning huge savings in expensive fertilisers and harmful pesticides.

 

Extensively tested in Ireland and several other countries, the inexpensive water treatment technology is now being rolled out across the world.

Conditioning water with radiowaves ... apparently very good for the plants that respond with increased growth and resistance to disease. 

 

A way to get off chemical fertilizers, toxic pesticides and - why not - genetic modification altogether.
