May 15th, 2018 USA-  What extents would you go to keep your brain and memory from failing? Would you consider having a doctor drill into your skull and implant a microchip in your brain? It is not a vain question, in the last few years, neuroscientists have achieved major advances in breaking the code of memory and finding out ways the human brain stores information and hoping to learn ways to simulate this process. They have now gotten to a stage in which they are starting to place all of these theories into practice. Two months ago a couple of research teams proved successful when using electrical signals which come from an implanted device in the brain using wires, this was tested in a small group of test patients.  Dr. Robert Hampson,...

May 10th, 2018 USA-  A typical American can consume around 20 teaspoons of sugar per day. To put this in perspective, this is about the same as eating a serving of jelly beans, nine Hershey's Kisses, a couple of brownies and a Double Stuff Oreo cookie.

May 3rd, 2018 USA- There is more evidence that exercising regularly is the best medicine for your body, dedicated cyclists who are as old as 79 years old have healthy immune systems and healthy muscles as someone who is in their 30's and does not exercise. British researchers placed middle aged and elderly cyclists and did some comparison to younger people who do not get regular exercise, they tested the muscles and immune systems of middle aged and elderly cyclists and compared the two. In terms of immune systems and muscles, the cyclists were much healthier that the middle aged couch potatoes, which is no surprise at all. These healthy cyclists looked healthier and a group of people aged 20-36 who did not exercise, reported the Journal Aging Cell... Read More
May 1st, 2018 USA-  A pilot study suggests that Botulinum Toxin might help people with Bruxism. The double-blind placebo study tested efficiency and safety of Onabotulinum Toxin-A or BoNT-A which was injected into the patients temporal and masseter muscles, for patients who suffer from sleep bruxism. The patients who received te injection reported less symptoms of jaw clenching and grinding. The study was comprised of twenty two patients, age eighteen to eighty five year old who have been previously diagnosed with sleep bruxism, and confirmed by polysomnography. Researchers from the Houston Methodist Neurological Institute gave the injection to thirteen participants, they administered 200 BoNT- A units, 60 in each masseter and 40 in each... Read More

April 24th, 2018 USA- 3D Printing is changing the way we make prosthetic limbs, aircraft parts and homes. It might also change the clothing industry. Fashion designers have revealed that they can make clothing and shoes using a 3D printer, this is done with plastic material that is placed layer by layer to create a 3D structure, for example Dutch designer Iris Van Herpen showcased a 3D printer at the last Paris Fashion Show. This does not mean that 3D printing will be replacing knitting, weaving or the usual ways of clothing manufacturing, as it is quite difficult to find material that will be soft, durable and will contour the body like most fabrics do.
