Top 10 Causes of Type 2 Diabetes

So many factors or a single one
can cause someone to develop
diabetes. This article will analyse
some major risk factors or
causes of type 2 diabetes.
10 CAUSES OF DIABETES
1. Eating an excessive amount of
food especially fat can cause
diabetes.
2. Engaging in little or no physical
activities or exercise is one of the
major causes of diabetes.

Causes of Osteroarthritis

Genetics
Osteroarthritis can be caused by
our genes as the whole genes
play a significant role in
predisposing us to
osteroarthritis. Though, only
three genes are linked to
osteroarthritis for now by
scientist, it is important to know
that each individual gene plays a
vital role in osteroarthritis
development and susceptibility.
Discovering more osteroarthritis
causing genes can help
researchers to indentify new
treatments and can be used to
predict osteroarthritis
susceptibility.
Post traumatic osteroarthritis
This can also be referred to as
post tragedy osteroarthritis. This
usually occur after many years
victim has gone through a
trauma or tragedy such as
accident or severe injury
sustained during sport or

Loneliness linked to cancer and others

Loneliness linked to cancer and others

Don't let loneliness to be your friend because it has been linked to
everything from cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease to Depression.

Loneliness is very unhealthy for us because cancers tear through the
body of lonely people easily and rapidly, and viruses attack them
easily and more
frequently.

Loneliness also affect our immune system negatively. The pain of loneliness
activates the immune pattern of
a primordial response commonly
known as fight or flight.
Lonely people's white blood cells seem
to be more active in a way that
increases inflammation and
chronic inflammation has been
linked to everything from cancer
to depression. Inflammation is a natural
immune response to wounding
and bacterial infection.

Lonely people have lower
levels of antiviral compounds

Moderate regular alcoholic drinkers live longer

Moderate regular alcoholic drinkers live longer

Objectively, I think we all believe or let me say some of us believed
that total abstinence from alcohol can keep us away from various
health diseases thus make us live longer. But recent research prove us
wrong as it shows that total abstinence from alcohol is not good for
our body as heavy drinkers are even found to live longer than those
who do not consume at all.

A recent research suggest that people who consume alcohol regularly
but moderately tend to live longer than chronic alcoholic drinkers
while heavy drinkers also outlive those that totally abstain from
alcohol.

The research was lead by Charles Holahan who is a university of Texas
Psychologist.

The age of the controlled group were between 55 and 65 and included
1824 participants.

The experiment or research lasted for 20 years. During the 20 years
period, 69 per cent of participants who do not drink alcohol at all
died, 60 per cent of chronic drinkers died and …

Bee venom destroy HIV and cancer

I was so surprised to read that bee venom can cure deadly diseases
such as Hiv, cancer and others. It seems this will be one of the hopes
for sufferers of those diseases.

According to a post from nairaland.com:

Scientists have discovered that
apart from pollinating crops,
producing honey, beeswax ,
propolis, pollen and royal jelly,
bees could also be the solution to
the deadly Human

Structure, Functions And Diseases of The Human Eye

The human organ of sight is the eye which is spherical in shape and
structured with visual receptor such as the rods for bright light and
the cones for bright light. The eye is so important to human because
without the eyes we cannot see and when we cannot see we cannot enjoy
the essence of life.

The following structures make up the human eyes

The sclerotic layer
This is a thick and fibrous tissue forming the white eye. Therefore
the sclera is the ' white eye ' and it gives shape and fitness to the
eye as well as protecting and supporting the inner parts of the eye.

Cornea
It is that part of the sclerotic layer which burges out in front of
the eye. The cornea is transparent thus admits light into the eyes.
This it does by bending the light rays in order to bring them to a
focus on the retina.

Optic nerve
This is located at the back of the sclera. It helps in transmitting
sensory impulses to and from the brain.
Conjunctiva
It allows the passage of light into …

FRUITS & HERBS : WALNUT IS ANTI-CANCER AGENT

FRUITS & HERBS : WALNUT IS ANTI-CANCER AGENT

Walnut is blessed with wide variety antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients. Therefore, it is not surprising to see research on this tree nut showing measurable anti-cancer benefits. The antioxidant properties of walnuts help to lower risk of chronic oxidative stress, and the anti-inflammatory properties help to lower risk of chronic inflammation and it is precisely these two types of risk, that when combined pose the greatest threat for cancer development.

Prostate cancer and breast cancer are the best-studied types of cancer with respect to walnut intake and their risk has been found to be reduced by fairly large amounts ( about 3 ounces per day) of walnut consumption.

For breast cancer, most of the evidence has been based on studies of rats and mice while for prostate cancer, the evidence is much stronger as more studies have involved human subjects.

Lower your blood pressure-expose your body to sunshine

High blood pressure is a major health issue and is of global
significance. It was only adults that are known to have or susceptible
to high blood pressure but now millions of youths are living with high
blood pressure knowingly or not. High blood pressure is a deadly
disease because one can live with it for a long period without knowing
during which it will be performing detrimental activities especially
to the heart and other vital organs.
High blood pressure, if not early treated can lead to other serious
illness such as diabetes, heart attack etc.

3 Causes And 13 Treatments Of Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is the type of cancer tumor that affects the breast. It
mostly affect women and comparatively rare in men. Like other cancer
cells, it bypassed normal growth signals by multiplying and invading
other tissue if not treated early. Despite medical advances, breast
cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women. The following
are the major causes of cancer in women.

Risk factors for breast cancer

Hereditary
5 to 10% of breast cancer cases are hereditary as the patients are
born with the faulty gene that causes cells to divide furiously,
attack other tissue, escape capture by immune cells thus leading to
breast cancer. Also, about 1 out of 10 breast cancer cases is known to
run in families.

Outside factors
Many cases are caused by healthy genes being damaged by outside agents
such as radiation and chemicals.

Hormones
Certain hormones seem to stimulate certain breast cancer. The
following hormones may influence the development of breast cancer.

9 safety precautions to avoid car accident and stay healthy

The Population Reference Bureau reports that worldwide "an estimated
1.2 million people are killed in road crashes each year, and as many
as 50 million are injured." As a result car accident is one of the
major causes of death aside natural death such as death from old age
and sicknesses.
I always considered that anytime someone is in a vehicle or any other
means of transportation one should consider him/herself as being in a
virtual or half coffin because millions of people move from vehicle
particular car to coffin every year mainly as a result of some human
or mechanical fault from the driver or car respectively.
Car accidents cannot be completely eliminated. However,the following
safety procedures can help you do avoid some common accidents.

days in people with low immune system after they were bitten by an
infected mosquito.

For people with fair immune system. It may take 18 days before the

‘Black Death’ germ has afflicted mankind longer than imagined

The plague germ that caused the "Black Death" in the 14th century and
other ferocious pandemics has stalked humankind far longer than
previously known.

A study unveiled on Thursday of DNA from Bronze Age people in Europe
and Asia showed the bacterium, Yersinia pestis, afflicted humans as
long ago as about 2800 BC, more than 3,000 years earlier than the
oldest previous evidence of plague.

New warning: No alcohol is safe during pregnancy

According to a medical report, drinking alcohol during
pregnancy should be avoided as it increases the risk
the baby could have defects.
The safest thing is to not drink at all because every baby and mother will
react differently to alcohol.

(CNN)—In an effort to once and
for all put a rest to any debate
about drinking during
pregnancy, the American
Academy of Pediatrics has put
out a clear message: Don't do it.
Ever. At all. Not even a tiny bit.
"No amount of alcohol should be
considered safe to drink during
any trimester of pregnancy," the
group wrote.
The group released a report
Monday identifying prenatal
exposure to alcohol as the
leading preventable cause of
birth defects, as well as cognitive
problems later in life.
Health authorities in nearly every
other country also advise
pregnant women unequivocally
not to drink.

I also give my own piece of advice to pregnant women not to drink
during for the future of their child and theirs.

96% of ex-NFL players had brain disease

Hitting your head against hard substaance can have an adverse effect o
n the brain. It can lead to CTE which is a progressive
degenerative brain disease
found in some athletes with
repetitive brain trauma.

According to CNN—Eighty-seven of 91 former NFL players who donated
their brains to science after
death tested positive for a brain
disease that is believed to be
linked with repeated head
trauma and concussions,
researchers said.
The former players were found
to have had chronic traumatic
encephalopathy, known as CTE,
according to the U.S. Department
of Veterans Affairs and Boston
University.
It's not clear why some players
develop the disease and others
don't.
The study results don't
necessarily mean that 96% of all
NFL players are at risk for CTE,
said Dr. Robert Cantu. The brains
came from players who, while
they were alive, had concerns
about CTE. His group began its
work in 2008.
The data was published on the
website for the Concussion

New :women should start getting mammograms at 45 i

The American Cancer Society has issued new rules saying
less screening for breast cancer is superior to more.

The association says ladies ought to
begin getting mammograms at 45
rather than 40, and that everybody can avoid the normal manual breast
checks by specialists.

Presently three key groups – the
American College of Obstetricians and, Gynecologists
, the American Cancer Society, and the U.S. Preventive Services
Team – prescribe
diverse ages for beginning standard mammograms: 40, 45
and, 50 respectively.

While mammograms recovery lives,
they can likewise bring about damage, so there must be balance to
manage the upsides and downsides of it.

Death from air pollution is rising

The world is so contaminated for the human health. According to a
study by WHO, residential energy use and
agricultural emissions lead
causes of air pollution deaths.
According to the World Health Organization Globally, more than 3 million
people die prematurely each year
from prolonged exposure to air
pollution. WHO also estinate that by 2050, there could be 6.6
million premature deaths every year worldwide due to air polution.

The study says the air we breathe out could be harming more
people than ever.

Chronic exposure to air pollution particles
contributes to the risk of developing cardiovascular and
respiratory diseases as well as
lung cancer.
"The total number of deaths due
to HIV and malaria is 2.8 million
per year," said Jos Lelieveld, a
professor at the Max Planck
Institute for Chemistry in
Germany and lead author of the
study. "That's half a million less
than the number of people who
die from air pollution globally."

Plague was detectable some 3,000 years earlier

A study suggests the plague may have existed thousands of
years earlier than the .
sixth century and through
medieval times when the illness wiped
out millions of people.

Scientist analyse DNA of human teeth from Europe and Asia and their
finding showed the bacterium that causes the plague was detectable
some
3,000 years earlier than previously documented.

According to the study, the bacterium,
known as Yersinia pestis, was common, though it may have caused a
slightly different but still harmful kind of illness.

According to senior
study author Eske Willerslev of
the Center for GeoGenetics at the
University of Copenhagen:
They found that the Y. pestis lineage originated and was
widespread much earlier than
previously thought, and they
narrowed the time window as to
when it developed. The study changes their view of
when and how plague
influenced human populations and opens new avenues for studying the
evolution of diseases.
