New Metabolic Process Can Switch Off Inflammation

Rejoice! Scientists may have found a new way to curb chronic inflammation! Researchers from the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute, Dublin have discovered a new metabolic process that can switch off inflammation. They have discovered ‘itaconate’, a molecule derived from glucose, which has the power to switch off the macrophages. What are macrophages? Macrophages are the cells of the immune system, which are formed in response to various infections.

Keep your home clean

Find out how good home hygiene can help prevent the spread of infectious diseases such as MRSA, E. coli and Colostrum difficult (C. diff). Advances in vaccination and antibiotic treatment have made people complacent about hygiene, say public health experts. This is especially true in the home, where there has been a tendency to assume, wrongly, that the risk of infection is low. But scare stories in recent years about SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome), avian flu (HAHN), food poisoning, the winter vomiting bug(rhinovirus) and hospital-acquired infections such as MESA and C. diffhave made hygiene a concern. Experience has also shown that as…

THERAPEUTIC DIETS-A BETTER DIET THERAPY

The nutritional needs of a normal person in his life span- from conception through infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age- are modified according to the demands of growth and development at different stages of life. Balanced diet at these stages prevents precipitation of deficiency symptoms of any nutrient and protects the person from any nutritional disorder or disease s well as secondary diseases, mostly infections, caused by lowered resistance due to undernourishment or malnutrition. The needs of every person at any stage of life are to be modified and…
