High levels of the hormone insulin can stimulate breast cancer

People with diabetes may have a
cause for relief because high
levels of the hormone insulin can
even stimulate the growth of
breast cancer.
Melatonin
melatonin is a sleep hormone
that help us to have a sound
sleep at night, but low levels of
this hormone in the body can
stimulate the growth of breast
cancer.
Age
some 75% of cases are in
women above 50 years. Thus,
risk increases with ages.
Treatment for breast cancer
The best treatments for breast
are restrictive diet and early
detection. Treatment depend on
the stage of the breast cancer.
When cancer is early detected it
can be confined to the organ it
started from where it can be
perfectly removed or cured. But if
the treatment is not commenced
early due to late detection, it can
spread to large area of the breast
as well to other vital organs of
the body. Making oneself
available for the screening
procedures (regular checkup)
can lead to early detection of
cancer while increasing the

Too much flouride is bad for your health

Fluoride is a natural mineral
abound in water, soil and foods
like tea leaves, egg, fish and
meat. Fluoride is useful when
consumed in reasonable quantity
such as when small quantity is
used in washing our tooth and
mouth regularly.
Benefits of fluoride to our health
Fluoride helps to strengthen the
teeth and prevent cavities,
prevent against tooth decay
when taken in small quantity.
Journal of America Chemical
Society says, "Fluoride helps to
harden the enamel coating that
protects teeth from the acid
produced by decaying bacteria."
Fluoride makes it easy to wash
away decay-causing bacteria
through brushing and other
activity by preventing the
bacteria from having a strong
grip on the tooth.
Despite of all these
aforementioned benefits of
fluoride, it also have it side
effects on health especially if
used or consumed in excess. One
of the side effects of fluoride is
DENTAL FLUOROSIS.
Dental fluorosis occurs during

No evidence of relationship between fluoride and cancer

No evidence of relationship
between fluoride and cancer
Carcinogenicity studies in
rodents along with human
epidemiological studies have
been used to determine whether
a harmful relationship exist
between fluoride in drinking
water and cancer.
Five carcinogenicity studies in
animals have been reported in
the biomedical literature on
whether fluoride in drinking
water can cause cancer but no
association was found to exist
between fluoride and cancer.
Also, over 50 human
epidemiology studies have been
conducted to identify the
statistical association or
relationship between cancer
rates and fluoride. And again a
formidable association cannot be
established between cancer and
fluoridation.

PEOPLE THAT SHOULD TEST FOR DIABETES

Everybody should be tested for
prediabetes and diabetes
regardless of your age, gender or
status. Prediabetes is a very
dangerous condition because it
can be in the body for a long
time without manifestation.
Though, few individuals may
show symptoms of diabetes, for
instance, weakness or increase
pee, many people's with high
glucose level will have no
outward signs by any stretch of
the imagination.
This implies that everybody
should be tested for prediabetes.
Anybody that falls under the
following categories should be
tested for diabetes. It is quite
advisable to go for diabetes and
prediabetes screening if you fall
under the following categories.

Is Fruits Good For Diabetes

Fruits are good for everybody.
Diabetics and non-diabetics can
benefit themselves from the
numerous health benefits of
fruits.
The advice is that you should be
testing your blood sugar against
the safest fruits for diabetes.
What you can do is to test or
measure your sugar level with
meter after you consume fruits
to know which one is good for
your diabetes condition.
What that means is that a kind of
fruit that is good for one
diabetes patient may spike the
sugar level in others. However,
fruits with low sugar or with
bitter taste might be good for
diabetes. Fruits that can usually
spike blood sugar are those with
sugary taste. Therefore, it is
better for individuals to test their
blood sugar against such fruits.
BOTTOM LINE
Fruits are good for diabetes.
However, diabetes patients are
advised to test or measure their
blood sugar after they consume
fruits especially the sugary ones
to know how they affect their
blood sugar.

Symptom of Diabetes: Gastroparesis

Stomach trouble is one of the
symptoms of persistent high
blood sugar
or diabetes. I have written in my
previous article that one of the
symptoms of persistent and
uncontrolled high blood sugar is
nerve
damage, a condition known as
neuropathy. Therefore, diabetes
or high
blood sugar can also damages
the nerve that helps stomach to
empty
and transport food smoothly
through the digestive tract.
This inability of the stomach to
empty food quickly enough as a
result
of persistent high blood sugar
can lead to many diabetes
complications. This inability of
the stomach to process and
empty food
swiftly is a condition known as
gastroparesis.
3 SYMPTOMS OF GASTROPARESIS
1. This could cause unpleasant
abdominal
problems like diarrhea,
constipation, or incontinence.
2. It may also lead to difficulty in
eating or swallowing.
3. Gastroparesis can make it
uneasy to control your high

The Liver-Function, Disease and Remedy

The liver is a very vital organ of
the body since it performs
numerous functions. The average
weight of a liver is about 1.25kg.
It lies below the diaphragm and
located on the right side of the
abdomen. The color of the
normal healthy liver is dark-red.
The liver is regarded as one of
the most important organs in the
body of a mammal because of
the following functions it
performs.
Functions of the liver
1. The liver helps in the formation
of red blood cells i.e. erythrocytes
2. Heat production for the body
use
3. It helps in the regulation of
lipids
4. It helps in the regulation of
blood sugar by converting blood
sugar to glycogen
5. The liver helps in detoxifying
the toxic by-products of the body
metabolism.
6. The liver produces bile which
helps in the emulsification of fats
for easy digestion.
7. The liver serves as a storage
medium for vitamins

What Is The Best Sleeping Position For Infants

Worldwide, many infants are
dying from sudden death (SIDS).
Medical personnel are working
round the clock to correct and
control this problem. According
to the Journal of the American
Medical Association (JAMA), it
seems that the risk of SIDS highly
reduces when infants sleep with
their back than with their belly.
Though, the relationship
between sleeping with the face
up in infants and SIDS cannot be
well established but some
researchers noted that sleeping
in this manner can prevent
infants from inhaling back the
carbondioxide that has already
been exhaled which can lead to
concentration of carbondioxide
in the blood stream. Making
infants to sleep with their belly
can also lead to excessive heat
generation.
Not the best sleeping position for
infants
Many countries such as England,
New Zealand, Australia, Denmark
and Norway usually urge parents
to lay their child on the bed with
their face up and this has
resulted in great reduction of

about the importance of fiber to
diabetes diet. If you have not
read the article it is advisable you
do so. Reading it will give the you
the knowledge about the
importance of fiber for the
controlling and balancing of
blood sugar.
Food rich in fiber is usually
recommended for diabetes by
doctors. Diabetes people should
consider eating fruits and foods
that are high in fiber but low in
sugar calories, fruits, starch and
carbohydrates. Foods high in
vitamins and minerals are also a
must for diabetes diet.
The problem that most diabetes
patients have is that they
concentrated much on using
drugs that flush or balance their
blood sugar than on eating
foods that could equally do the
same or outperformed the drugs

Excessive Eating Increases The Risk Of Eating Bacteria In Food

How To Reverse Diabetes Type 2 With Diets

Reversing type 2 diabetes
with proper diet
It must be admitted that living
with diabetes is not easy
because you have to follow a
daily routine of using your
medications as at when due. It is
even a terrible case for those on
insulin, some diabetics take
insulin daily, as they need to be
injecting themselves with
needles.
Contrary to popular believe that
diabetes cannot be reverse, a
clinical trial has proven that type
2 diabetes, can be reversed and
with your diet.
Weight loss has been said to be
able to improve diabetes
condition. Accordingly, IU Health
Arnett Doctor Sarah
Hallberg helped to create a diet
for a weight loss study program

diet can serve as a treatment for
diabetes.
The diet was designed in such a
way that it is low in carbs,
moderate on protein intake and
suggests high levels of fat.
I know that you will be surprised
to read that the diet 'suggests
high levels of fat.'
However, the fat are not harmful

LINK BETWEEN DIABETES, HEART DISEASE AND BLOOD VESSELS DAMAGE

Coronary or health disease and
vein disease are risky diseases
for some individuals who don't
have their diabetes under proper
control.
It is very important for diabetes
people to keep their blood sugar
level under proper control
because they were twice as liable
to have heart issues and strokes
as
individuals who don't have the

Another reason it is advisable for
diabetics to properly balance
their glucose level is that it could
lead to blood vessel or nerve
damage which might likewise

7 Risk Factors Shared By Diabetes And Certain Cancer

Medical scientists have

between diabetes and some
form of cancer. They found out
that certain risk factors that
cause diabetes can also lead to
cancer. Scientists are trying their
best to make research and
discoveries in order to enlighten
people about their health. Many
people are ignorant about their
health. They are well educated in
other aspect of their lives, they
were educated and well
grounded in finance,
relationship, news,
entertainment, sports, market
and other aspect of life but when
it comes to health education,
their score is zero. Though,
having education on health does
not mean that one will not sick
but having the knowledge is
always better because
knowledge is better than
ignorance anytime any day.
The research shows that certain
factors that cause diabetes also

such as liver, pancreas, uterus,

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.

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

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
Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
and cancer.
Recently, a team of scientists at
the Washington University School
of Medicine, USA, used
nanoparticles carrying a toxin
found in bee venom to destroy
HIV without harming nearby
cells.

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 …
