Foods high in fibre may fight against asthma

A group of scientists at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland had came out to reveal through the experiment they carried out on mice that the high and low fibre diets altered the types of bacteria living in the guts of the mice.
Good bacteria which can munch on soluble fibre, the type found in fruit and vegetables, were found to flourished on the high-fibre diet and they in turn produced more short-chain fatty acids which is the type of fat, absorbed into the blood.
Accordingly, the scientists said these fatty acids acted as signals to the immune system and resulted in the lungs being more resistant to irritation.
The opposite happened in low-fibre diets and the mice became more vulnerable to asthma.
Their report argued that a dietary shift away from fibre in favour of processed foods may be involved in rising levels of asthma.
In recent decades, there has been a well-documented increase in the incidence of allergic asthma in developed countr…

Meaning of congestive heart failure

Congestive heart failure is a condition, where poor heart capacity causes liquid
and blood to move down in the substantial veins of the body can bring about liver swelling and aggravation.
Typically, bile streams from the liver into the gallbladder and at last into the digestive system to help with the processing of sustenance.
On the off chance that bile stream is discouraged, it can
cause irritation inside of the liver. Most normally, gallstones
can bring about a check of the pipes that empties bile out of the liver.
Variations from the norm of the opening of the bile pipe into the little digestive system (sphincter of Oddi) can lead to variations from the norm of bile stream.
The sphincter of Oddi goes about as a "valve" that permits bile to stream from the regular bile pipe into the digestive system.
Essential biliary cirrhosis and essential sclerosing cholangitis
can prompt dynamic scarring of the bile pipes, making them

Profound effect of weight on diabetes

Very few people realize the profound effect that weight has on diabetes. Even instances of gestational diabetes are much greater in patients that are overweight than in those that are not. Type 2, or adult onset diabetes is more commonly found in overweight people than those that are within their 'ideal' weight ranges. In fact, almost 90% of those with Type 2 diabetes are overweight. If you are suffering from Type 2 diabetes, the best gift you could possibly give yourself just might be the gift of getting your weight under control.
Among those that suffer from Type 2 diabetes almost 40% have high blood pressure, which is another condition that is believed to be exacerbated by excess weight. Being overweight might also lead to a condition known as insulin resistance in which the body no longer responds to the insulin that is needed to assist the body in using sugar and glucose as fuel on a cellular level.

Discovery: people with type 1 diabetes could produce their own insulin

This is surely a good news for type 1 diabetics. A lasting solution for managing type 1 diabetes may have been discovered.
According to a protein used to

pancreatic cells into producing
insulin. The discovery could help
people with type 1 diabetes
produce their own insulin
without having to take daily
What happen is that, in type 1 diabetes, beta cells in
the pancreas that make insulin –
the hormone that keeps our
blood glucose levels at a safe
concentration – are destroyed by
the immune system. As a result,
people with the disease have to

merely by exposing them to a
