Is Broccoli Good For Herpes? | New Research, Broccoli extract slowed down herpes.

Image
Scientists hope that research into this effect will help to make the first cure for the virus.
Is broccoli good for herpes?German molecular biologists have seen for the first time how the herpes virus penetrates human cells and suppresses its immune system. 
These observations helped to find out that broccoli extract and experimental medicine for kidney disease slow down the infection, researchers reported in an article published by the scientific journal Nature Communications.
"We have visualized the changes that occur in the operation of each gene - in the cells where the virus has penetrated. These observations helped us to understand that the inclusion of the NRF2 gene was associated with the slow development of the infection and increased resistance to virus attacks." Said one of the authors, a biologist from the Max Delbruck Molecular Medicine Center (Germany), Vedran Franke.
The herpes virus is one of the most common pathogens on Earth. The first subtype of the virus, hsv…

How to help kids lose weight, Simple steps that can help parents deal with the complex situation. What are good diets for kids?


How to help obese childrenThe excess weight usually has an effect on the child's health, as well as social and functional implications. 
It is difficult for parents to see the child's suffering, and they are debating what is right for him and whether the weight should be defined as a problem or is it the child's body structure.
A few simple steps may help parents cope with the complex situation successfully. 

It is important for parents to understand that the real challenge is changing the lifestyle of the entire family, and not just the overweight child. 
Because lifestyle change, like other changes, may be challenging, we recommend choosing two to three goals to focus on. 
Goals that have high chances of success should be chosen, as any success you experience increases motivation to keep on changing.
Weighing children as a means of surveillance should …

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.

Have fun and take the time on the bed.

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

Image
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%.

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.

They say the ne…
