Can eating less every day slow the ageing process?

Can eating less food every day slow down the ageing process? Reducing your calorie intake by 30 per cent could keep your brain younger and even help you live longer—although so far these benefits have been seen only in animal studies.
The latest tests have been carried out on two grey mouse lemurs: one had a normal diet for nine years and the other was fed a similar balanced diet that had 30 percent fewer calories. The lifespan of the calorie-restricted lemur increased by nearly 50 percent, and its motor capacities remained healthy its whole life, while its brains resembled that of a younger animal.
The researchers from CNRS in France say the theory of calorie-restricted diets and their impact on ageing is still 'controversial' in humans, although similar positive results have been seen in macaques, as well as in mice, flies and worms.
The next stage, say the researchers, is to carry out more animal studies, but next time to gauge the impact on ageing of calorie-restriction with physical exercise.

Ingested vs. Contact vs. Inhaled Allergies!



Ingested allergies

food allergy is a type of food intolerance in which a person’s immune system abnormally reacts to food. It’s also known as food hypersensitivity. It’s more common for children to have food allergies than adults. Food allergies are most often caused by:
  • cow’s milk
  • nuts
  • eggs
  • fruit
Symptoms of food allergies can be mild. Such is the case with hives. Hives can appear when certain foods are eaten. Most people with allergies have elevated levels of food-specific immunoglobulin IgE in their bloodstream. These are antibodies that bind to the allergen and then attach to mast cells in the skin. The mast cells in turn release histamine, which triggers a release of fluid that causes red, itchy, and inflamed skin — known as hives.
More severe symptoms of ingested allergies may include:
  • abdominal cramps
  • vomiting
  • diarrhoea
  • skin rash
  • swelling of the lips and eyes which appears and disappears quickly
  • anaphylaxis, a sudden, extreme allergic reaction characterized by difficulty breathing, swelling of the tongue or throat and may result in death
Any food allergy can progress to anaphylaxis, even if previous exposure reactions have been mild.
Children with food allergies may exhibit behavioural signs such as crying, irritability, or milk refusal.
Contact allergies
Contact allergies occur when an allergen touches a person’s skin.
The symptoms of this type of allergy are usually confined to the area of contact with the skin. Common irritants include:
  • soaps
  • detergents
  • hair dyes
  • jewellery
  • solvents
  • waxes
  • polishes
Natural allergens include ragweed.
Though annoying, a contact allergy is rarely dangerous. Symptoms of a contact allergy may include skin:
  • redness
  • itching
  • swelling
  • scaling
  • blistering
The best way to deal with a contact allergy is to identify and avoid the irritant. Treatments may include:
  • creams or ointments to help calm symptoms
  • antihistamines to prevent an allergic reaction
  • an anti-inflammatory medication such as prednisone in the most serious cases
With treatment, contact allergies usually resolve in a few days. But contact your doctor if there’s drainage from a rash accompanied by pain or fever, or if red streaks emanate from the rash. These are all signs of an infection rather than an allergic reaction.
INHALED ALLERGIES

Inhaled allergies

Inhaled allergies are the most common type of allergy. Symptoms may include:
  • sneezing
  • runny nose
  • watery eyes
  • itchy eyes
Many people who have inhaled allergies only experience symptoms during certain seasons. Pollen, grass, and mould are the most common triggers of seasonal allergies.
Pollen is a fine powder that comes from trees, weeds, and grass. Each season, beginning in the spring and continuing through the fall, the amount of pollen in the air increases. This increase may trigger allergic symptoms in people sensitive to pollen.
Avoiding pollen isn’t always as simple as retreating inside during allergy season. Other types of airborne allergens are prevalent indoors. These include:
  • fungi
  • mould
  • pet dander
  • dust mites
Many people confuse hay fever with asthma. Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder that causes bronchial swelling and constriction. It may be triggered by hay fever if a person has both conditions.
But hay fever and asthma are very different. A number of other factors can trigger an asthma attack, including:
  • a respiratory infection
  • certain drugs
  • other types of allergens, such as dust mites or diesel fumes
  • cold air
  • certain emotions and stress

Discover these amazing health benefits of tamarind!


femina

Tamarind is the one fruit that does not have to be forced down a kid’s throat! Deliciously tangy, imli is a firm favourite with most people and a comfort food that adults find themselves indulging in ever so often. From eating it straight from the pods to sucking on the seeds to enjoying it as a pickle or a candy, there are numerous ways to enjoy this leguminous fruit. In fact, tamarind is used in a variety of Indian dishes as well to lend them a tart flavour. And the best part is that tamarind is not just amazingly tasty, it is very good for your health too. Here’s how. 

Heart health: Tamarind is great for your heart because it lowers blood cholesterol and blood pressure. In fact, it has also been shown to have a positive effect in reducing harmful LDL cholesterol. The potassium content in Imli helps lower blood pressure, while the Vitamin C in it neutralises harmful free radicals. 

Digestion: Imli has always been used in Ayurvedic medicines to cure digestion issues. Tamarind stimulates bile production that leads to quicker and efficient digestion. It is also rich in fibre, which adds bulks to stools and helps easy bowel movements. It is hence used as a natural laxative and interestingly works for some cases of diarrhoea as well since it has natural binding agents like gums and pectins. 

Rich in nutrients: Tamarind is rich in a number of essential nutrients. For instance, if you eat 100 grams of tamarind a day, you will get 36% of thiamin, 35% of iron, 23% of magnesium and 16% of phosphorus recommended for you daily. It also has plenty of niacin, calcium, vitamin C, copper, and pyridoxine. It also has many antioxidants essential for good health. 

Weight loss aid: Tamarind contains a compound called Hydroxy Citric Acid that prevents an enzyme in your body from storing fat. This acid also reduces appetite by upping serotonin neurotransmitter levels. So effective is tamarind in weight loss that there are many studies being conducted on it. 

Good for nerve function: Tamarind contains the B vitamin Thiamine that is essential for the proper functioning of nerves and development of muscles. Make sure you include some tamarind in your diet every day to get its benefits. 

Reduces inflammation: Tamarind is effective in reducing inflammation as it has high levels of tartaric acid, a strong antioxidant, that makes short work of free radicals. Geraniol, another natural antioxidant in it has been shown to suppress pancreatic tumour growth. High levels of polyphenols and flavonoids have been shown to have a beneficial effect on a host of conditions including diabetes. In fact studies have shown that tamarind has an anti-diabetic effect.

You can now get expert nutrition advice at the supermarket!

The Waitrose move comes as the food industry works to tackle obesity in the UK
The supermarket chain Waitrose has announced that it is hiring healthy eating specialists to help customers make healthier food choices when doing their weekly shop.
According to The Timesthe new team, trained by expert nutritionists, will walk the shop floor and be available to give advice on what changes shoppers could make to their shopping baskets to make their meals more nutritious.
The specialists will also be on hand to suggest recipes to customers, perhaps alerting them to the recipe cards that are already available in-store, as well as showing them how to read food labels properly so they can find reliable nutrition information.
The service could help individuals who struggle with healthy eating and are trying to lose weight, or be an aid for busy individuals who have fallen into a food inspiration rut. Those who have recently adopted a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle may benefit too, as they can receive guidance on how to ensure their meals contain all the nutrients they need to stay healthy.
Whatever their eating habits, the move is likely to be welcome news for shoppers. A survey, revealed by The Telegraphrecently found half of the individuals didn't feel in control of their health and a third believed they didn't have time to focus on it. 
Hungry shoppers might also find the nutritionists useful, as further research from Cornell University, mentioned in The Telegraph's report, suggests that customers doing their weekly shop on an empty stomach often opt for more unhealthy options.
“Many shoppers have the best intentions to be healthier but busy lives get in the way", reveals Waitrose’s nutrition manager, Moira Howie. "We know that small steps, top tips and nuggets of good advice can help them get started and stay on track. Research shows that changes do not have to be radical to have a positive effect and can have a lasting impact on health.”
Waitrose's news comes at a time when the food industry is attempting to make great strides in tackling the UK's obesity problem, with retailers, including Tesco and Boots, banning unhealthy food, like chocolate, from their tills.
The healthy eating specialists will start in a dozen Waitrose stores in the South-East within the next six weeks, with the scheme rolling out elsewhere by the end of the year. Waitrose will also be further extending its private food consultation trial, where customers can pay for a personalised healthy eating diet plan.

Why the 2018 Allergy Season Is Expected to Be a Bad One!

Has poor winter weather made this allergy season one to dread or is climate change to blame?
allergy season
Spring is finally here in some parts of the United States and many people are happy about that — unless, of course, they suffer from seasonal allergies.
Will this allergy season be the worst one on record? How can people ease their suffering from allergens, regardless of the forecasts?
“At present, just as we enter April, almost one-third of the U.S. is in moderate to high pollen levels already,” said Dr. Clifford W. Bassett, the founder and medical director at the Allergy & Asthma Care of New York.
Weather and temperature fluctuations are known to cause allergy-like symptoms.
That’s already an issue along with the usual pollen, according to Dr. Purvi Parikh, a New York allergist and immunologist.
“Patients are already symptomatic,” Parikh told Healthline. “The ups and downs in weather this year… are throwing everyone’s allergies for a loop.”
“It seems with each passing season that the forecasters say this will be the worst allergy season ever. This year, they may be right,” said Dr. Stacey Galowitz, DO, an allergist from New Jersey.
Galowitz explained that a variety of factors seem to make the season get worse each year.
Warmer average temperatures and increased precipitation makes for a longer season with more potential for pollen production.
Increased carbon dioxide from pollution, leads to more pollen production, which means more seeds, which means more pollen in the next season. Worsened pollen production plus more people being diagnosed with environmental allergies each year leads to more people suffering, Galowitz added.
“This winter’s relatively warm average temperatures, coupled with back-to-back snowstorms, may be an equation for a pollen ‘tsunami’ this month,” she told Healthline.
“People seem to say every year is the worst, but I think this is because they forget how miserable they were the previous year. That said, years do vary but it is hard to predict in advance which year will be bad,” noted Dr. Andrew MacGinnitie, a pediatrician at Boston Children’s Hospital.

The environmental factors

What makes allergies especially troublesome?
“Warmer temperatures increase the length of the growing season, which makes things worse,” MacGinnitie told Healthline.
He added that some research shows higher carbon dioxide levels can boost pollen production.
Spring pollen can begin in late winter and last until late spring in many areas. Spring allergy seasons are beginning, on average, up to two weeks earlier over the past several decades, Bassett noted.
Pollen levels seem to be going up across the globe and the weather, in general, seems to be affected by climate change — something that, in turn, affects allergy season, according to Dr. Anthony Del Signore, the director of Rhinology and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery at Mount Sinai Union Square in New York.
Traditionally, the first allergen to hit tends to be trees in the spring, followed by grass in the summer, and then weeds in the fall.
“But the lines seem to be blurred now, with some allergenic agents hitting concurrently,” Del Signore told Healthline.
“Given this year’s winter and early spring weather patterns across the U.S., several trends seem to be playing out,” he noted. “Tree pollen season is shaping to be more impactful and with stronger and longer peaks given the warmer winter weather.”
The Southeast, in particular, Florida and Georgia, seem to be hit with high pollen counts earlier due to the warmer weather earlier in the year.
The Carolinas and Ohio River Valley are having a slower progression due to a wetter than normal winter/spring.
This progression northward looks to be delayed as well in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, as pollen-level models are showing, Del Signore explained.
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America’s list of worst allergy spots is not yet available but is expected soon.
Allergy solutions
While there are many options to treat allergies — such as antihistamines, steroids, inhalers, and antihistamine nasal sprays — Parikh said the best way to treat allergies is with immunotherapy.
That can be done via pills or allergy shots, but Parikh said pills are not as effective as shots.
They also are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for all allergens as well as multiple allergens.
Sublingual drops can treat grass, ragweed, and dust mite allergies, MacGinnitie added.
“These are much more convenient and safer than allergy shots, which we call subcutaneous immunotherapy,” he said.
Ketotifen eye drops are also available over the counter to treat eye-related symptoms.
Also, nasal steroids are now available over the counter and are the best medicine for patients with allergies. These can be used alone or along with non-sedating antihistamines.
“It is best to discuss with a board-certified allergist which is best for you,” Parikh added.

The mystery enzyme: how cancer cells feed off sugar!

The mystery enzyme: how cancer cells feed off sugar image
Cancer cells feed off sugar in order to grow, as Otto Warburg observed in the 1920s—and now scientists have figured out how they do it. Solving this '100-year-old mystery', as they call it, finally opens the door to better and safer treatments.
Back in the 1920s, Dr Warburg, a physiologist, discovered that cancer cells need glucose—the sugar in our blood—to thrive and grow. It's their primary energy source, and yet they choose an extremely inefficient way of getting that energy.
Healthy cells use the mitochondria, the energy-producing structures within cells, to produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which drives most of our functions. But cancer cells are different; they change their metabolism and cease to rely on oxygen, in order to ferment sugar in what became known as the Warburg effect.
"This has been a mystery for quite some time. Why would cancer cells, which need large amounts of energy to sustain their growth, prefer to use a pathway that produces less ATP than another available pathway?" asked Prof Bert O'Malley from Baylor College of Medicine.
Years ago, O'Malley and his team discovered that cancer cells over-produce the protein SRC-3, and this allows them to turn on genes that cause abnormal growth and metastasis (growth), characteristics of cancer.
So what makes a cancer cell produce more SRC-3? The unsuspected culprit is an enzyme known as PFKFB4, and this turns SRC-3s into potent drivers of most cancers, and especially breast cancer.
This opens the door to new cancer therapies. Just remove either the PFKFB4s or the SRC-3s from cancer cells, and you stop it in its tracks. Cancer stops growing and it can't come back.
