Harvard scientists checked how many chips should contain a healthy packet of chips.

For most of us, 6 chips are barely a snack, not to mention a dish - but that's exactly the number of chips you should eat if you do not want to shorten your life by half a year.

healthy packet of chips.

A healthy dose of chips should contain only six chips, according to a Harvard scientist who studied the subject. 

Fried potato sticks, or their common name and popular french fries, provide comfort and happiness to humans since the 18th century, when they were probably invented.

The Department of Nutrition at Harvard University in the United States calls them "starch bombs" and believes that 6 pieces of them are more than enough for those who want to avoid potential fatal heart problems.

In the past 25 years the average size of portions in restaurants and food chains has doubled and tripled.

For example, in the past, bagels were sold with an average diameter of 7.5 cm, while today the average diameter of bagels sold in the United States is just over 15 cm. 

A serving of fries contained 15 pieces in the past, while today most restaurants serve a serving that contains an average of 55 pieces.

This partly based on a study recently published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and conducted by Italian researchers who found that people who completely abstain from eating fries enjoy a longer life expectancy than people who eat it. 

Those Eat fries at a frequency of 2-3 times a week were more likely to have diabetes, cardiovascular disease and also to suffer from obesity.

For most Americans, giving up fries is not a simple step. "The common attitude about it is" you'll have to get them out of the my frozen and dead hands.

So is it really worth abandoning French fries or making do with just six pieces of it for the right to live another six months? Not sure there is one correct answer for all people.

Researchers Identified a Virus that Attacks Cancer Cells

Researchers identified a virus that attacks human cancer cells can distinguishes Healthy cells.
Audio Version Of This Post
Viruses are usually supposed to worry us, but this is not the case with inoculate viruses. those that infect cancer cells and kill them, ignoring healthy cells. So it is no wonder that the search for such viruses attracts many researchers.

The Seneca Valley virus.This virus also known as Senecavirus affects pigs and cows. In recent years it has been found that the virus attacks human cancer cells.

The ability to identify tumors and ignore normal cells tested in two trials. The first in relapsed solid tumors in children and the second in lung carcinoma.

Experiments also found that the immune system was removing the virus from the body. Thus preventing it from completing its anticancer action.
Ongoing research to understand how the Seneca Valley virus may be used for cancer treatments.Researchers at the University of Otago in New Zealand discovered in 2017. That the vi…

New study suggests, people with better sense of smell have a better sense of direction

People with a good sense of smell also have a better sense of direction, suggesting a link between the two systems, a new study suggestsWhy do we have a sense of smell?
The smell of fruit directs us (or at least the lemurs) to the most mature fruit, and even our interpersonal relationships are affected by scents. But some researchers believe that its first use by the first animals, the advantage it gave them over the lack of sense of smell, is navigation. 

Now researchers from Canada have shown that people with a better understanding of smell also navigate better.

The olfactory bulb, the region of the brain that receives information about odors from the nose and makes the initial processing of the smell, exists in many species of animals. It has identified in mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish, and there is a similar structure, even in crabs and insects. 

For some, the bulb is tiny compared to the size of the brain, and for others, it is enormous. A study published several years ago showe…

10 Incredible Scientific Breakthroughs and New Inventions

Scientific discoveries continue to appear every year. new discoveries in a variety of fields, from innovative solutions and treatments for common and deadly diseases to archaeological discoveries, space discoveries, and unusual scandals, learn about 10 groundbreaking scientific discoveries that have taken place and can certainly affect our lives in the near future.

1. Sickle cell anemia can be cured by transplantation of stem cellsSickle cell anemia is a severe and common blood disease in which more than 4 million people worldwide are infected.

In April, a pair of scientists at the National Human Genome Research Institute announced that they had completely cured a 26-year-old man with sickle cell anemia, Through the transplantation of healthy stem cells in the body, they hope and believe that similar results will also occur in the future as more patients receive similar treatment with stem cells.
2. Scientists have been able to stop and reverse the process of aging in miceAging is a natu…
