Role of zinc in development

...oping countries where people eat a lot of cereals, pulses and vegetables but no animal products. This sort of diet contains lots of phytates, which bind iron and zinc, making it difficult for the blood to absorb them. Scientists now believe that zinc deficiency could be as common as iron deficiency, which ...

Resurface your skin

...ctually removed. Instead, a gentle series of light pulses can remove redness, dilated blood vessels, age spots and lines. As the targetted cells absorb laser light they are broken apart and absorbed by the body. This promotes production of new collagen - the protein that gives skin its youthful elasticity. ...

Attacking therapy with electricity

...ell membranes which is being punched by electrical pulses could give better delivery of drugs. The effectiveness of many potentially powerful treatments //including cancer therapy and gene therapy are limited by the difficulty of getting drug molecules in through cell membranes.

Bringing wires through the skin without discomfort or infection is one of many independent inventions that has made the new visual prosthesis possible.When...

Discovery of World’s smallest laser

...Single nanowires are “pumped” with extremely short pulses -less than one-trillionth of a second - of ultraviolent radiation from a high power laser, after which they emit ultraviolet laser light that is “photographed” by the sharpened tip of an optical fibre in the microscope. By measuring the patterns of...

Athletes Are More Prone To Environmental Pollutants Due To Choice Of Diet

...ortsmen/women of meat, dairy products, cereals and pulses was found higher than that of the general population. These food groups, with the exception of pulses, showed comparatively higher concentrations of the analyzed pollutants. In contrast, food groups like fish and oils/fats, which showed also importan...

FDA Approved Nerve-Stimulation Therapy Now Available In New York

...implanted in the chest area. The device sends mild pulses to the brain through the vagus nerve in the neck. A generator that runs under the skin to the left vagus nerve powers the device through a thin insulated wire. The vagus nerve is one of the 12 cranial nerves and serves as the body’s information hig...

Efforts To Replace Reading Glasses Are In View

...t of presbyopia, the U-M team used ultrafast laser pulses to create tiny gas bubbles within the intraocular lens. Before the bubbles diffuse, researchers hit them with high frequency sound waves, which push the bubbles against neighboring lens fibers. ‘Part of the sound is reflected, and from the characte...

Brain Controlled Movements Are Studied Using Robotic- Joystick

The joystick then pushed repeatedly in the opposite direction and again the subjects were asked to keep the joystick centered. The research team found that after all this pushing in different directions the subjects still were inclin...

Vagal Nerve Stimulation Works To Treat Severe Depression
