Moffitt Cancer Center study shows that causes pain increased desire to smoke cigarettesMore than half of people with chronic pain are smoking, and research suggests that smoking cigarettes can cause chronic pain worse. In a recent study published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology Moffitt researchers published for the first time that smokers are more often asked to smoke and smoke more cigarettes when they found pain.

The researchers are currently conducting a study on these findings by examining ways to build to interfere with the relationship between smoking pleasure and pain. Their hope is that the findings from these studies to new smoking cessation specifically for specifically for smokers who are suffering from chronic painful conditions. Continue reading

Two years ago, NASA launched the third of its major Earth Observing System satellites – Aura a group of instruments a group of instruments to the global measurements of air pollution on a daily basis. On Earth. Controlled five of the six air pollutants by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. But this 400 – mile-high readings make as accurate as possible, data from the sophisticated Aura instruments to be compared to data from tried and true sensors on Earth.

Two years ago ‘bad air days’the the health of the elderly, children and people with respiratory diseasesSummer in the city can stifling often ‘bad air days’that threaten the health of the elderly, children and those with respiratory diseases. This summer, the City is no stranger to such a serious air quality warnings. Continue reading

The stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide with more than 80 percent of all stroke cases, the supplies as a result of a blockage in a blood vessel with blood to the brain. Ischemic or traumatic brain injury may cause the unwanted activation of a protein, caspase 3, which contributes to the brain tissue loss. ‘Off ‘this ‘executioner ‘protein by the use of siRNA – a molecule that inhibits the expression of genes. Cortex. SiRNA in sufficient quantities to specific brain regions has been by the use of nanotubes directly into the brain by high-precision techniques neurosurgical reaches injected.

This extraordinary nanometer scale tubes of graphitic carbon are among the stiffest and strongest fibers known, and have a have have a length-to-diameter ratio as high as 28,000:1. Similar to a syringe in the nanometer range, were used nanotubes to transport siRNA and silence genes in the brain in an effective manner. A combination of these promising gene therapy approach using the latest nano – delivery system could demonstrate functional recovery in stroke – ridden animals. Continue reading

It is not like the simple, one – gene models for eye color or blood type or found in diseases such as muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis. ‘The diseases that we study polygenic, meaning that many genes that are contributing, but the number of genes and how they interact with strangers,’said Millonig. ‘Identifying a gene in a complex disease may be more insight into the metabolic pathways involved to give – it helps you begin to unravel, which at its base. ‘.. Researchers agree that the environmental contributors saw vulnerability for mental disorders, but based on inheritance patterns of these diseases in families, the genetic component appears to be very strong. The inheritance picture is, however, far from clear.

The results of of a new study at the 2007 AAO – HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO show presented that the quality of the life of patients after treatment of oral cavity and oropharynx cancer greatly strongly by the stage of cancer at time of diagnosis, the dependency by a PEG tube selected and the type of treatment modality. The study for head and 87, which had previously been treated for head and neck cancer, the respondents using the University of Michigan Head and Neck Specific Quality of Life Questionnaire QOL QOL factors examined in the areas of food, language, pain, and emotions.

Japan, Canada and several European countries have banned some of Monsanto’s products, while the U.S. Is an open market for GMOs continued. This is mainly due to Monsanto Mike efforts, successfully lobbying successfully lobbying against labeling requirements for GMOs.

An Uphill BattleSo the playing field to ensure genuine food safety as the scourge of GMO crop, animal and man is genetic contamination will eliminate tilted in favor of the biotech industry. Most life at of GM crops contaminating non-GM crops is very real. A lot to a lot to level the playing field and tilt it the other way. Continue reading
