Milk Assessed Most Effectively Improve Nutrition

Nutrition issue is a national problem that can only be handled through cooperation between various stakeholders. This needs to be a concern given that Indonesia should continue to foster competitiveness of human resources that can compete in regional and global level.

Deputy Minister of PPN / Head of Bappenas Human Development, Society, and Culture, Subandi Sardjoko, stated that the double nutrition burden is a challenge for Indonesian human resources. These challenges can appear in various stages of the life cycle and are very influential to the competitiveness of Indonesians.

For example, the impact of nutritional problems that arise at an early age is not limited to the child's nutritional status at that time alone, such as short-bodied children, obese children or malnourished children. These impacts will then be associated with lower risk of intelligence and the risk of non-communicable diseases when the child is in adulthood.

"For that reason the existence of affordable food and nutrition sources will greatly help the community improve their nutritional quality," said Subandi to Republika.co.id, in Jakarta. According to him, the availability of good nutritious food products at affordable prices will greatly assist most people in the middle of limited purchasing power.

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.

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.

Sugar Adversely Affects Mental Health

Sugar may not only be bad for your teeth and waistlines, but also your mental health. Researchers at University College London (UCL) compared the report of sugar intake by more than 8,000 people in a long-term study in the UK with their moods.

Participants who are civil servants, monitored during 1985-1988, and filled out questionnaires every every few years. Researchers analyzed the study data that studied the relationship between sugar intake and general mental disorders (CMD) such as anxiety and depression.

The UCL team found men who consumed more sweet foods and drinks were more likely to suffer from mental disorders after five years. They concluded, in a study published in the journal Scientific Reports, that lower sugar intake could be associated with better psychological health.

But nutritionist Catherine Collins, spokesman for the British Dietetic Association, said the results have not been proven. The problem is the amount of sugar consumption self-reported by the participants and the sugar intake of alcohol is not calculated. The researchers, he says, seem to confuse natural sugars from foods such as milk, and sugar added to hot drinks or sweets.

This construction is based on 50 existing hen data. Then, these data are used to look for compounds that have the potential to fight the disease. One of the most promising chemical compounds to do such is sulforaphane, which is usually found in vegetables.

This compound can decrease the production of blood sugar by growing cells in the liver. In addition, these compounds also alter gene expression in the liver, especially those who have experienced abnormalities due to type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Research Reveals Food Rich Sugar Breasts Cancer

Lovers of sugary foods seem to be careful about eating sugar-rich foods. Research reveals, these foods can actually trigger various forms of cancer by giving them the much needed energy to breed.

"It has been suspected that many cancer cells rely heavily on sugar as their energy supply, but it turns out that one specific type - squamous cell carcinoma - is more highly dependent on sugar," said Assistant Professor at the University of Texas, Jung-whan Kim.

SqCC is also found to have a highly active protein called a glucose transporter 1 or GLUT1. This substance is responsible for transporting glucose into the cells. It provides a fundamental source of energy and fuel cell metabolism.

For the study, published in the journal Nature Communications, the team investigated metabolic differences between two major subtypes of small cell lung cancer - adenocarcinoma (ADC) and SqCC. The investigators investigated the effects of GLUT1 inhibitors on human lung tissue, isolated lung cancer cells and mice with both types of non-small cell lung cancer.
