Sponge Wash Dishes So Bacteria Storage

Sponges in the kitchen become mandatory for cleaning cooking utensils and utensils, but this dishwasher can be the dirtiest thing. The scientists published a study revealing how dense the surface of the sponge in the kitchen with microscopic bacteria.

To produce accurate calculations, the researchers did two ways. Previously experts only measured the amount of bacteria in dirty sponges in the laboratory stomach plate, but not all bacteria could grow in the medium.

The researchers then collected additional data from the donor sponge (a sample of 14 dishwashing sponges). Apparently, sponges are cleaned regularly in soapy water or dishwasher stores more bacteria called Moraxella osloensis.

Bacteria are common and harmless, but can cause infection in people with impaired immune systems.

According to Dr.Markus Egert, microbiologist, this study is not intended to cause fear, but still many readers are worried. "Our study is primarily to create awareness, not fear," he told the New York Times daily.

Although bacteria in dishwashing sponges are not always dangerous, but he thinks it's better to throw out the stinky ones, a sign that the bad bacteria are there.

Diligent Handwashing Prevent Cervical Cancer

Diligent hand washing can prevent cervical cancer because the human papilloma virus (HPV) that causes cancer can move through touch, said Head of Social Services Yayasan Kanker Indonesia (YKI) Venita.

"We need to be more careful about the cleanliness of the public toilets, then wash hand hygiene," he said in Jakarta on Monday (14/8).

Based on research, he said, the spread of cervical cancer virus through touch contact less than 10 percent. However, paying attention to cleanliness is important for prevention.

In addition to diligent hand washing, prevention can be done is vaccination and early detection at least 3 years.

"At least 3 years, if you can more often, yes, it does not matter.Summerly feared to forget, but once every 3 years minimal.Papsmear free BPJS so there is no reason not to check," said Vernita.

He also suggests a balanced diet, lots of foods containing antioxidants, and regular exercise to prevent contracting cervical cancer.

Stress turns out to be contagious, this is the scientific explanation

When a person experiences stress, psychiatric conditions are not impossible to spread to people around. Founder of the health and wellness applications of Energy Fusion Dean Griffiths said there was a scientific explanation behind the condition.

He explained, humans can reflect each other's emotions because of what is called mirror neurons. When seeing someone else perform an action, the mirror neuron glows as if we are also doing the same thing and allowing us to capture the person's mind.

"Our emotions are spread through wireless networks of mirror neurons, which allow us to empathize with others," Griffiths said, as quoted from the Psychologies page.

If we see a person's toes tripping, certain areas of the brain light up and make us feel the same pain. In fact, one study found that 26 percent of people showed elevated levels of stress hormone cortisol just by looking at someone who is experiencing stress.
