Why you must add Mushrooms to your Diet plan (health benefits of mushrooms)

Health benefits of mushrooms.

Researchers studied 11 different types of fungi and found that they had a beneficial effect on the brain and may prevent and inhibit the development of Alzheimer's and dementia. 

Here's another good reason to go picking up mushrooms.

Health benefits of mushrooms

Researchers have found that eating mushrooms can protect against degenerative brain diseases like dementia and Alzheimer's.

The study, published in the online journal Medicinal Food and conducted by researchers from Malaysia, found that some fungi contain compounds that protect against nerve irritations, such as inflammation, which can cause the acceleration of diseases such as Alzheimer's and dementia.

The research dealt with fungi that contain bioactive substances and examined their beneficial effects on our cognitive abilities. 

The researchers found that the fungus tested, 11 of them in number, increased the amount of gray matter in the brain by increasing the production of a short secreted protein called nerve growth factor (NGF).

Functional food

Regular consumption of mushrooms may reduce or delay the development of age-related degeneration," the researchers said. 

Further extensive trials on animals and humans are needed to lead to the design of functional foods or innovative therapeutic drugs to prevent or mitigate the effects of neurodegenerative diseases.

For thousands of years fungus has been used as a natural remedy for humans, and they are known for their anti-inflammatory properties that strengthen the immune system and also help people with asthma, arthritis, kidney failure and more. 

In addition, the mushrooms are rich in niacin (vitamin B3) that helps detoxify the body, as well as antioxidants, B vitamins and other minerals such as selenium, iron and copper.

The study, of course, relates to edible mushrooms and not hallucinogenic mushrooms containing an ingredient called psilocybin, a psychoactive substance that affects the brain. 

A study published by the Johns Hopkins University a few years ago found that a one-time controlled use of psilocybin may change a person's personality structure over time. 

And even for the better. According to the study, the subjects became more open, their imagination developed and they became more sensitive people.

Always consult a Doctor.

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…
