Zagrożenie chipsów – Ryzyko zdrowotne wywoływane regularną konsumpcją
Chips threat – Polish scientists from the Institute of Food and Nutrition demonstrated health risks, which carries regular consumption of chips. Chips contain unhealthy fats, high in salt and acrylamide, which is toxic to the nervous system. Induces chronic inflammation of the body and increases the risk of cancer. The study was conducted on a group of 14 persons who ate the 4 weeks after every packet of potato chips (160 g). It turned out that after this time in their increased blood levels of acrylamide compounds responsible for inflammation in the body (CRP, IL-6) and bad cholesterol (LDL). Further demonstrated that acrylamide bound to hemoglobin, so that it can not be efficiently removed from the body.
William Harvey – Anatomista oraz fizjolog
William Harvey – 01. 04. 1578 was born anatomist and physiologist William Harvey. As the first, in 1628 described the construction and operation of the bloodstream. He showed that the contraction of the heart is the origin of the muscle. His discoveries made through experiments on dogs. The result of his discoveries were the first, unsuccessful transfusions and dissemination of treatment bloodletting.
First blood transfusion
First blood transfusion – Historical sources say that the first man, who carried a transfusion, was a French physician Jean-Baptiste Denys. This was done in June 1667., Although some sources attribute this to the important work of medical Englishman Richard Lowerowi. J-B. Denys transfused 2 l. Sheep blood deadly bleeding 15-year-old boy. Miraculously, he managed to save the young man, almost 300 years before the first determination of blood groups.
Young blood transfusion
Young blood transfusion – Transfusion of blood from a young organism could act as an elixir of youth. This effect was confirmed by three independent studies have so far only been performed in mice.
New blood test
New blood test – American doctors from Johns Hopkins University in Maryland announced that they managed to create a simple blood test that sample determines whether we have suicidal tendencies. The effectiveness of the test is approx. 80%.
Risk of dementia
Risk of dementia – According to the American Academy of Neurology risk of dementia it is very high in people with blood group AB. In comparison to other blood groups risk is much higher – more than 80%.
Most common blood group
Most common blood group – In the world is a type of 0. However, in some regions, which include the Poland, is most common the blood group A.
Currently, in the world blood group A has:
- 40% people of white race,
- 26% people of black race,
- 57% of Hispanics,
- 40% of Asians,
These people are called. universal donors. Their blood can safely be used for transfusions for people with any blood group.
The rarest blood group is type AB, which flows in the veins:
- 4% people of white race,
- 4% people of black race,
- 2% of Hispanics,
- 7% of Asians,
A little more common is the blood group B – circulates in the bodies:
- 11% people of white race,
- 19% people of black race,
- 10% of Hispanics,
- 25% of Asians,
Clogged blood vessels
Clogged blood vessels – The cause of the clogging of blood vessels can be not only unhealthy lifestyle, but also the the blood group AB. The researchers found that among people with type AB is 26% more cases of stroke than people with a group 0.
Octopus has three hearts
Octopus has three hearts – Octopus is a highly intelligent cephalopod, has neurons in the tentacles, teeth, tongue, and three hearts. Octopuses also have an unusual blood color: blue. Their transport of oxygen through the blood is not based on iron, but the copper. This solution is better suited to low temperatures and low oxygen concentrations.
Second brain – As in the case of operations on the brain heart surgery also it requires extraordinary precision. Neurocardiologists discovered the fact that the heart not only pumps blood through the body – this organ also has about 40,000 nerve cells that constantly exchange information with the neurons in the brain. Doctors speak of „neuro-intelligence of the heart”.
