"However, in truth, we do feel pain, the perception of pain, but this only lasts for a few seconds."
"We have opened up a whole new route to drug discovery for pain relief," said Prof Anna Maria Aloisi from the University of Siena in Italy.
The Professor and other researchers who studied the family hope their discovery of a gene mutation in family members could help chronic-pain sufferers in the future.

A protein related to the development of anxiety may trigger diabetes

Cyanide in Garri Can Cause Cardiac arrest and more

According to Dr. Mercy Ifeanacho of the Biochemistry Department of the University of Port Harcourt : "The whole essence of processing the bitter variety is to reduce the cyanide level, which is the implicated toxic substance. In trying to do this, we engage many processes, which depends on steps, sequence and time. "In fermenting cassava, you peel grate and dewater. While it is being dewatered, fermentation takes place. When we are talking about it we should realise those micro organisms are involved. In fermentation of garri, serial fermentation is involved. "Some group of bacteria starts the work and lactic acid is increased during this process. This will reduce the P.H. level of the garri. Another set of micro organisms then takes over and further increase the acid level reducing the P.H. The length of time will determine the quantity of cyanide that will be removed from the cassava. "That is why when you ferment garri for a shorter time; there will be higher c…

Increased uptake of PMTCT services will reduce HIV

Justice Michael Kirby of the High Court of Australia said: “paradoxically enough, the only way in which we can deal effectively with the rapid spread of HIV/AIDS is by respecting and protecting the rights of those already exposed to it and those most at risk.” In line with this, in Lagos, the State Law for the Protection of persons living with HIV and AIDS was signed into law in 2007.

One of the ways to end HIV infection in the state is what is being done at the health facilities where all pregnant women were encouraged to get tested for HIV and providing ARVs to all pregnant positive women. Implementation of Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission (PMTCT) interventions, have been proven to reduce the risk of MTCT of HIV to less than 2% (from about 40% in the absence of any intervention).

As a result, increased uptake of PMTCT services will surely help to reduce HIV.

Global response to malaria may suffer due to reduced funding – WHO

Pedro Alonso, Director of the Global Malaria Programme, commenting on the findings of this year’s report, said the world is at a crossroads in the response to malaria and expressed the hope that this report would serve as a wake-up call for the global health community.

“Robust financing for the research and development of new tools is equally critical. The WHO Global Technical Strategy for Malaria calls for reductions of at least 40% in malaria case incidence and mortality rates by the year 2020. According to WHO’s latest malaria report, the world is not on track to reach these critical milestones,” he said.

The 2016 capital stand on N1.3tr is the highest in the nation’s history. Yet, we are still a long way from adequate dealing with the massive infrastructure deficit.

6 top kidney prevention tips

top 6 kidney stone prevention tips: Don’t Underestimate Your Sweat. Saunas, hot yoga and heavy exercise may be good for yourhealth, but they also may lead to kidney stones. Why? Loss of water through sweating – whether due to these activities or just the heat of summer—leads to less urine production. The more you sweat, the less you urinate, which allows for stone-causing minerals to settle and bond in the kidneys and urinary tract.
Instead: Hydrate with H2O. One of the best measures you can take to avoid kidney stones is to drink plenty of water, leading you to urinate a lot. So, be sure to keep well hydrated, especially when engaging in exercise or activities that cause a lot of sweating.It’s Not Just the Oxalate. Oxa-what? Oxalate is naturally found in many foods, including fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, grains, legumes, and even chocolate and tea.

3 advantages of eating banana in the morning

Cleanses the Colon -
Bananas are rich in enzymes that cleanse the colon. When the gut is healthy, the body is able to absorb more nutrients from the food you eat. In addition, bananas are a rich source of dietary fiber and fructose. These nutrients keep the gastrointestinal tract healthy. They also boost the metabolic rate so you’re less likely to gain weight.
Promotes Better Digestion - Although loaded with fiber, bananas are very easy to digest. They are filling, delicious and are low in calories. During the mornings, the stomach remains at rest. Just like a well-oiled machine, the stomach needs more time before it starts working at its peak. At this point, the stomach cannot tolerate hard-to-digest foods.
Low in Calories - Eating a banana is an excellent way to control your calorie consumption. You can eat as many bananas as you like during the morning and not worry about going overboard. You don’t feel deprived because you are always full.

Fruits that are good for diabetes

Diabetes is one health condition that comes with a sack load of dos and don’ts. When people are diabetic, it means that their bodies can’t process sugar. Experts say the condition does a lot of damage to the body as a result.
Diabetologist/Medical Director of Rainbow Specialist Medical Centre, Lekki, Dr. Afokoghene Isiavwe, says “Over time, the high glucose levels in the blood can damage the nerves and small blood vessels of the eyes, kidneys and heart; and lead to atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries that can cause heart attack and stroke.”
Experts also warn that diabetes can lead to the build-up of sugar in the blood and this can cause an increase in urination, causing dehydration.
Worse still, the sufferer can enter into what is medically called diabetic coma. Isiavwe says when a person with Type-2 diabetes becomes very ill or severely dehydrated and is not able to drink enough fluids to make up for the fluid losses, he may develop this life-threatening complication.

Can diabetes eat honey?

With appropriate control, many diabetics and pre-diabetes are still able to safely enjoy natural honey. Before incorporating honey into their meal planning, find out how much of the sweet liquid can be consumed on a daily basis.
Each diabetic is different and should learn how his or her body reacts to different foods containing carbohydrates. Bear in mind that the total amount of starches or carbohydrates in a food is the key consideration, not the amount of sugar.
Honey requires lower levels of insulin compared to regular white sugar and does not raise blood sugar levels as rapidly as table sugar, that is, it has a lower Glycemic Index than sugar. Though honey contains a significant amount of sugar, it consists largely of two simple individual units of sugar - glucose and fructose, which are absorbed at different rates into the body.
The perfect one-to-one ratio of fructose and glucose found in honey facilitates glucose intake to the liver, hence preventing an overload of glucose ent…

What It's Like to Survive HIV for More Than 30 Years TEZ ANDERSON

In 1986, I moved from Atlanta to San Francisco because I had fallen in love with a man who lived here. The HIV test had come out a year earlier, and he knew he was negative, so I walked five blocks down the hill to the clinic and took The Test. Two weeks later, I was told it came back positive for HIV. I immediately made an appointment with a respected HIV doctor who told me I had less than two years to live. I was 26. It would be a few years before I figured out that I had acquired HIV in 1983.
From 1981 until 1998, having HIV was considered a “death sentence.” I witness my loved one and a huge swath of my community die young—all the while fully expecting to be the next one to die.
