University Researchers Use Biozoom Scanner To Investigate Relationship Between Stress And Work
Date:6/17/2013

AGOURA HILLS, Calif., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Biozoom (OTC QB: BIZM) scanner is the world's first portable, hand held device for the non-invasive transdermal analysis of antioxidants and other biomarkers in the human body. It replaces expensive, time consuming and invasive blood tests.

Using it, we have been able to investigate the changing antioxidative status of human skin more easily."

The concentration of antioxidants in human skin has been shown to be linked to an individual's nutritional habits, as well as by stressors such as shift work. Because midwives' schedules are unpredictable and often require midnight shifts, the workers' circadian rhythms and melatonin secretion are disturbed. According to Charite, this type of schedule is associated with insomnia, gastrointestinal disorders and a 40% higher risk of developing coronary heart diseases.
