Fructose cause digestive problems

... met criteria for IBS. In 70 per cent, methane and hydrogen were found in the breath analysis - both markers for fructose intolerance. More research is needed to confirm the link between fructose and gastrointestinal problem - but, in the meantime, a low fructose diet may provide relief for patients with IBS-...

Magnetic resonance angiography in clinical medicine

...se MRA uses the natural magnetic properties of the hydrogen atoms present in our bodies to create (with the help of a computer) images of the blood vesels. It is a special type of MRI study and often, the patient having a MRI scan can have MRA study as well at the same time. Whereas MRI looks at the organs a...

Immune cells halt round in space

...that intermolecular or submolecular forces such as hydrogen bonding might play a larger role in determining the cell's shape in the absence of Earth's gravity. They say finding out is important to both astronauts and people on Earth since understanding the way physical forces affect T-cells could eventually ...

Honey curbs bacteria in the oral cavity

...ting this month. An enzyme in honey that produces hydrogen peroxide is the key to the antimicrobial activity of honey, according to Dr. Peter C. Molan, associate professor of biochemistry at the University of Waikato, New Zealand. Research results from University of Waikato show that honey can stop the gro...

New breed of mice to live longer

...talase. The cells can use this catalase to convert hydrogen peroxide that can damage cells into water and molecular oxygen, in the ctytoplasm of the cells. The mice, created by the research team of University of Washington, Seattle, US, can produce high levels of catalase in their mitochondria of the cells. T...

Pollution Free Hydrogen based fuel for Energy

...st working towards this solution to look at making hydrogen fuel cells. Hydrogen would be pumped into fuel cells and the hydrogen would reacts with oxygen to produce water and energy. A chemical reaction rather than a combustion m...

Intravenous Vitamin C (Ascorbate) for Cancer Treatment

...cells is found by a chemical reaction in which the hydrogen peroxide produced toxicity to the cells. It is also proved earlier that Vitamin C destroys cancer cells by inducing Apoptosis (Programmed Cell death). Dr. Mark Levine said that the anticancer effect of Ascorbate has to be tested on patients to find...

Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy aids in mapping protein structure

Although zinc is an essential metal needed by mammals and commonly found in nutritional supplements, acute, high-dose oral exposure to zinc and...

New anti-aging molecule could be coming up in way

... hydrolyses the harmful superoxide to less harmful hydrogen peroxide. Free radicals are chemical entities that contain free electrons and because they contain free electrons, they are very reactive. They react with several biologically important molecules such as DNA, lipids and proteins and destroy them. R...

Food labels to include information on trans fats in US

... Trans fats are a result of manufacturers adding hydrogen to vegetable oils to improve shelf life. If a product is labeled "partially hydrogenated," it means at least some trans fats are created in the product, the amount ranging from almost zero to a large portion of a food item's calories. The partially...

Bionic muscles developed by scientists powered by alcohol and hydrogen

...Both release the chemical energy of fuels, such as hydrogen and alcohol, while consuming oxygen. The most powerful type, "shorted fuel cell muscles" convert chemical energy into heat, causing a special shape-memory metal alloy to contract. Another kind of muscle being developed by the team converted che...

Absorption Of Carbon Nanotube Measured In Worms Revolutionize Cancer Research

...e in several areas, including pharmacology and for hydrogen storage in fuel cells. But despite their promise, a big problem was that it's not known how multi-walled carbon nanotubes will impact the living environment. This discovery can now help the scientists in understanding how the effect the particle will...

Hydrogenated Fat Pts Weight around the Abdomen

... by heating natural fats to 250C and then bubbling hydrogen through them. This makes the oil dense and waxy thereby it facilitates the binding of the food and prolongs shelf life. Many studies point out to the fact that hydrogenated vegetable fats can contribute to heart disease, narrowing of blood vessels ...

Trans Fats Adding Inches to the Waistline

...to super-high temperatures followed by bubbling of hydrogen through it, a compound that had new chemical bonds similar in structure to plastic with a high melting point and a long shelf life. Trans fats are thus generally used because they are considered to be economical. In Denmark the law requires manufac...

Solitons Could Power Molecular Electronics, Artificial Muscles

...fferent energy states, just like the electron in a hydrogen atom. "While we know that such internal electronic structures exist in all atoms, this is the first time anyone has shown that such structures exist in a soliton," Li said. The soliton's quantum mechanical properties -- including these newly disc...
