Sunridge Medical's curator insight, February 10, 2014 4:34 PM

For each of these 5 Deficiencies there is ample explanation of not only why we might be deficient but also what to eat to add some back into our diet.  This article applies to everyone even those who eat a very healthy diet.

 

People who eat healthy tend to have the most deficiencies since they have given up many different types of food that may have previously been a source of this now deficient nutrient they are lacking.

askdrmaxwell's curator insight, February 18, 2014 9:54 PM

Nutritional deficiencies are a common reason for chronic illness.

What is the best way to Medical test and diagnosis for oral cancer?

What is the best way to Medical test and diagnosis for oral cancer? | News and Medical | Scoop.it

Oral cancer symptoms can be similar with other medical conditions and only a specialist can establish a correct diagnosis.

Dharamshila Hospital and Research Centre's insight:

Oral cancer is part of a group of cancers called head and neck cancers. Oral cancer can develop in any part of the oral cavity or oropharynx. Most oral cancers begin in the tongue and in the floor of the mouth. Almost all oral cancers begin in the flat cells (squamous cells) that cover the surfaces of the mouth, tongue, and lips. These cancers are called squamous cell carcinomas.

What are the symptoms of lung cancer?

Lung cancer is one of the commonest cancers seen in developed countries and its incidence in India is on the rise. It is reported to be the fifth most common cancer in India. Indian patients with lung cancer are a decade younger than those in developed countries. Smoking is the major risk factor and therefore incidence of lung cancer can be lowered dramatically by not smoking.

Dharamshila Hospital and Research Centre's insight:

Lung cancer symptoms usually appear after the disease reaches an advanced stage. These include:

Constant or severe coughingPain in the chest or back from coughingDifferent coloured sputum/ mucusDifficulty in swallowing and breathingHuskiness of the voiceChronic bronchitis or pneumoniaCoughing up of blood in the sputum

Dharamshila Hospital and Research Centre's insight:

A team of researchers of the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, a city in NW Romania, has created a recipe for artificial blood whose preliminary tests have proven encouraging.

 

The team led by professor Radu Silaghi-Dumitrescu, who is only 39 years old, has been doing research to create the artificial blood for six years and their discovery could prove crucial given the lack of blood doctors need in cases of severe accidents and major surgeries. The blood is made of water, salt, albumin and a protein – hemerythrin -extracted from marine worms which makes the artificial blood stress resistant.

Vaccine-induced Tissue Scurvy globally misdiagnosed as Child Abuse - Parents falsely accused?

Vaccine-induced Tissue Scurvy globally misdiagnosed as Child Abuse - Parents falsely accused? | News and Medical | Scoop.it

Some parents who were charged with child abuse and later cleared of charges learned their children actually had developed tissue scurvy following vaccination.

 

“Some doctors are unaware of the pathophysiological processes of autoimmunity, haemostasis and osteogenesis and are misdiagnosing vaccine induced tissue scurvy, absence of vitamin C within the cell, as non-accidental injury.”

 

“Tissue scurvy, unlike the “seafarer scurvy” of yesteryear, is a condition in which vitamin C is abundant in the blood but is unable to enter the cell because of a lack of insulin which is required to transfer the vitamin C into the cell.”

 

“The many faces of tissue scurvy in childhood include sudden infant death syndrome, alleged non-accidental injury, shaken baby syndrome, abusive head trauma, inflicted brain injury, Reye’s syndrome, Kawasaki disease, anaphylaxis and diabetes type I."

 

"All have one feature in common – hyperglycemia, the signature of insulin deficiency resulting from vaccines..."

10 Plyometric Exercise Moves That Burn Major Calories

10 Plyometric Exercise Moves That Burn Major Calories | News and Medical | Scoop.it
These high-intensity moves can improve your performance, too

 

Ever seen people at the gym do a series of crazy-intense, rapid-fire jumps, skips, and hops? You were probably witnessing plyometrics, a type of high-octane training that taps into energy stored in muscles to encourage muscle development, agility, cardio functioning, stamina, and speed, explains Neal Pire, sports conditioning expert and author of Plyometrics for Athletes at All Levels. Plyos are in the news these days; a new study found that a moderate plyo routine done on a hard surface improved athletic performance. Oh, and thanks to the energy needed to do them, they incinerate serious calories too.

Environment 360: Faced With Sea Ice Loss, Emperor Penguins Alter Their Breeding Tactics

Environment 360: Faced With Sea Ice Loss, Emperor Penguins Alter Their Breeding Tactics | News and Medical | Scoop.it

Confronted with the loss of sea ice in some parts of Antarctica, four colonies of emperor penguins have come up with an innovative breeding strategy to adapt to their changing environment. Using satellite images, an international team of scientists tracked the four colonies from 2008 to 2012. In the first three years, the emperor penguins hatched and incubated eggs in their customary fashion — atop the sea ice that freezes during the Antarctic winter and spring. But in 2011 and 2012, sea ice did not form until a month after the breeding season began. As a result, the emperor penguins — the largest penguin species on earth — did something never before witnessed by scientists: They climbed up the nearly sheer walls of large, floating ice shelves — huge structures, often hundreds of square miles in extent, that flow from land-based glaciers into the sea. In the region of the four colonies, the ice shelf walls reach as high as 100 feet, researchers say. The scientists say the altered breeding behavior could demonstrate how ice-dependent emperor penguins may adapt to life in a warming world.

Plant Cell: Modularity of the Orange Carotenoid Protein from Cyanobacteria

Plant Cell: Modularity of the Orange Carotenoid Protein from Cyanobacteria | News and Medical | Scoop.it

"The orange carotenoid protein (OCP) serves as a sensor of light intensity and an effector of phycobilisome (PB)–associated photoprotection in cyanobacteria. Structurally, the OCP is composed of two distinct domains spanned by a single carotenoid chromophore. Functionally, in response to high light, the OCP converts from a dark-stable orange form, OCPO, to an active red form, OCPR. The C-terminal domain of the OCP has been implicated in the dynamic response to light intensity and plays a role in switching off the OCP’s photoprotective response through its interaction with the fluorescence recovery protein. "

I was a little cautious reading this the first time. Such tributes and thought pieces can be tacky. This one however does justice to the man and calls us all to find the inner strengths to make a similar contribution to a better world.
