Sugar: tasty for tongue, toxic for body

Published

on

Sugar is an inevitable commodity in our daily life. But the thing we should understand is ‘sugar is a white poison’. It gives sweetness for the initial energy drink to every sweet dish of our life.

More than benefits, the sugar has harmful effects for the human body. Even though it is abstracted from sugarcane and fruits, it has added calcium, potassium, phosphorous and crystallized. The crystallized sugar extracts minerals from our body for digestion.

It also has added preservatives, which is harmful to our body. Kidney works hard to expel the sugar which is absorbing minerals from bones and teeth. Excessive use of sugar affects the health of heart muscles and cells of the brain.

Too much of sugar increases the production of endorphin, the chemical which decreases immunity power, which can lead to cancer and other chronic diseases. At the same time, sugar breaks down the protein content and the lack of protein leads to fat accumulation that causes obesity.

Sugar can be the reason for underweight of newborns. Also, the carbohydrates of sugar make breast milk unfavorable for newborns.

Calories of sugar give energy to our body is the only advantage of white sugar. From a recent study conducted by a university in Britain, it is proved that the sugar can increase the memory power of the adults.

The only solution to control the use of white sugar is encouraging the use of jaggery, honey, and palm jaggery.

Oral Bacteria can cause Pancreatic Cancer

Published

The presence of oral bacteria in cystic pancreatic tumours is associated with the severity of the tumour, a new study suggests. According to the researcher, the results can help to reappraise the role of bacteria in the development of pancreatic cysts. If further studies show that the bacteria actually affect the pathological process, it could lead to new therapeutic strategies using antibacterial agents.

“We were surprised to find oral bacteria in the pancreas, but it wasn’t totally unexpected. The bacteria we identified have already been shown in an earlier, smaller study to be higher in the saliva of patients with pancreatic cancer,” said co-author Margaret Sallberg Chen from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

Not all pancreatic tumours are cancerous. For instance, there are so-called cystic pancreatic tumours (pancreatic cysts), many of which are benign. A few can, however, become cancerous, the researcher said. “We find most bacteria at the stage where the cysts are starting to show signs of cancer,” Chen said.
“What we hope is that this can be used as a biomarker for the early identification of the cancerous cysts that need to be surgically removed to cure cancer…” she added.

For the study, published in the journal Gut, the team examined the presence of bacterial DNA in fluid from pancreatic cysts in 105 patients and compared the type and severity of the tumours.
The results showed that the fluid from the cysts with high-grade dysplasia and cancer contained much more bacterial DNA than that from benign cysts. To identify the bacteria, the researchers sequenced the DNA of 35 of the samples that had high amounts of bacterial DNA.

They found large variations in the bacterial composition between different individuals, but also a greater presence of certain oral bacteria in fluid and tissue from cysts with high-grade dysplasia and cancer.

See what happened to the Woman who used Hair Dye: Must Know and Be Aware

Published

on

None is satisfied with their natural look. We always seek more and more in make-up, grooming and modifying looks. Sometimes, it may go wrong. We have seen a lot of things that gone wrong.

A 19-year-old French woman recently suffered a near-fatal allergic reaction to a chemical found in a dark-coloured hair dye, causing her head to grow almost double in size.

Estelle told that she had a “light-bulb head” after using the hair dye called Paraphenylenediamine (PPD). Though she used a very tiny amount of the dye, her scalp reacted immediately after application.

The swelling began shortly after the application and Estelle had to take an antihistamine to help with the irritation. Shockingly, her head enlarged the next morning, growing up to 63 centimeters from 55.8 centimeters. Later, Estelle went to a hospital where she was administered a shot of adrenaline and had to spend the night under observation.


According to a report by Yahoo Lifestyle, the PPD chemical is found in dark-coloured hair dyes, makeup, and tattoos. Such a chemical reaction can cause “fatal complications” like muscle tissue breakdown, respiratory distress and also renal failure, according to a report by the Journal of Research in Medical Sciences.
Estelle faced breathing issues after the application of the hair dye. Even after taking an antihistamine, her head continued to swell and later her tongue swelled up too. “I almost died. I do not want this to happen to others,” said Estelle.

PPD isn’t dangerous if you don’t have an allergy. Only a small concentration of 2% PPD is allowed in hair dye, and the kind Estelle used reportedly only had 1%. So, properly patch-testing to check for an allergy is critical.


If you tend to use a box dye to cover your grays and haven’t had any kind of allergic reaction, then you’re in the clear. However, if you are considering using an at-home hair dye but now have some reservations, there’s no need to freak out just yet.

Health and life is more important than beauty. Understanding this can help when over consciousness of beauty came into you.

Cured AIDS… Second Time in History

Published

Content: Abhiramy R

For just the second time since the global epidemic began, a patient appears to have been cured of infection with H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS.

The news comes nearly 12 years to the day after the first patient known to be cured, a feat that researchers have long tried, and failed, to duplicate. The surprise success now confirms that a cure for H.I.V. infection is possible, if difficult, researchers said.

The investigators are to publish their report on Tuesday in the journal Nature and to present some of the details at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Seattle.
Publicly, the scientists are describing the case as a long-term remission. In interviews, most experts are calling it a cure, with the caveat that it is hard to know how to define the word when there are only two known instances.

Both milestones resulted from bone-marrow transplants given to infected patients. But the transplants were intended to treat cancer in the patients, not H.I.V.

After news of the first “Berlin patient” broke at the same Seattle Conference in 2007, scientists have been trying hard to replicate the results in other HIV-infected patients. In every case until now, either the virus roared back to life — usually around nine months after getting off their medication, or the patients died of cancer.


The Berlin patient was identified many years later as Timothy Ray Brown, a 52-year-old man now a California resident. In Brown’s case, he had leukaemia and was in need of bone-marrow transplants since his chemotherapy was failing him. Luckily for him, his donor had a mutation in a gene called CCR5, which is linked with some people having a natural resistance to HIV. CCR5 is also the gene that Chinese researcher He Jiankui tweaked in embryos to give them a genetically-engineered resistance to HIV infection throughout their lifetimes.
With immunosuppressive drugs and repeated bone marrow transplants, the treatment ultimately worked. But Brown almost died by the end of the treatment.
His transplant beat cancer without any threatening side-effects, and the transplanted immune cells that were made resistant to HIV appeared to have replaced all the HIV-vulnerable cells in his blood.
