The incredible survival story of the Dog maggie - Science Blog (October 2019)

Occasionally we hear stories of about animals who manage to survive obstacles and particularly serious injuries.Science Hub Blog, October, 2019.

As is the case with Maggie - a dog that gives us such a huge inspiration thanks to a sweet smile, blind eyes and one ear. Maggie's powerful and exciting story began when she was found in a box in Lebanon in harsh conditions while beaten and shot, which caused her to lose one of her ears and her eyesight. 
The person who found her posted on a social network asking for help to find the poor dog a warm home, and his publication was answered by a 25-year-old London girl.

She adopted the dog, Asking the Wild At Heart Foundation to help Maggie get the treatments she needed to recover, and now you can find out more about Maggie and see her pictures.

New research, consumption of supplements brings unexpected risks with it.

Certainly vitamins are beneficial to health, but excessive consumption of supplements can bring unexpected risks with it.


Data collected in the United States National Health and Nutrition Survey indicates a tendency to switch from multivitamin pills to targeted supplements - mainly fish oil and vitamin D.
Most of them taken over the counter. An analysis of the 2016 survey data shows that less than a quarter of supplements are taken with the recommendation of a health professional.

For most people this dietary fervor is harmless - except for a small hole in the pocket - and for anyone whose dietary composition is inappropriate or lacking in a special medical condition, dietary supplements can do wonders. 
But it's also worth remembering that high doses that significantly exceed the daily dose recommended by, for example, the Institute of Medicine at the National Academy of Sciences of the United States, can be dangerous. 
A reminder of this can be found in a recent study linking vitamin…

H2PRO Hydrogen, Researchers Developed Environmentally Friendly Hydrogen Production Technology

E-TAC water-splitting technology improves the energy efficiency of the hydrogen production process to an unprecedented peak, 98.7%, and significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions. 
The development-based H2Pro company will translate it into a commercial application
Clean, cheap and safe for hydrogen production. This technology significantly enhances the efficiency of hydrogen production - from around 75% by today's methods to unprecedented energy efficiency of 98.7%. 
Avner Rothschild of the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering and Prof. Gideon Grader of the Faculty of Chemical Engineering together with Dr. Chen Dotan and Ph.D. student Abigail Landman.

Conclusions of this research were published in the journal Nature Energy.
Electrolysis was discovered over 200 years ago, and since then has been a cumulative collection of point improvements.

Technion researchers are now introducing a dramatic change that will lead them to cheap, clean and very safe hydrogen.

How nanotechnology can be used to diagnose and treat cancer?

Treatment for skin cancer using nanoparticles immunotherapy. The strategy shows impressive results in mice.
New anti-cancer treatments apply immunotherapy: harnessing the immune system to combat the tumor. 

Clinical use of anti-cancer drugs such as 'Pembrolizumab' (Keytruda) and Ipilimumab (Yervoy) has given hope to many cancer patients, primarily those suffering from melanoma. 
Studies show that 60 percent of melanoma patients respond to immunotherapy treatments.  The rest have to wait for the development of novel therapies. Researchers from Tel Aviv University, in collaboration with scientists from the Weizmann Institute, the University of Lisbon in Portugal, and the University of Turin in Italy, have developed a new treatment for melanoma.  Integrates three strategies: Immunotherapy, addressing the tumor microenvironment, and nano-particle vaccination. The combined therapy activates immune cells against cancer cells. 
Inhibits the tumor microenvironment from interfering with their…
