For Muscles, Milk the Cow, Not the Bean

Milk Protein is significantly better than soy at building muscle mass, according to research from McMaster University in Canada. The study found that drinking two glasses of skim milk after a work-out created twice as much as the same amount of protein from soy drinks. This is an interesting finding , since soy and milk proteins are considered to be complete proteins that are basically equivalent from a nutritional standpoint. The effectiveness of milk in stimulating muscle gain much better than soy. If muscle mass gain is your goal with weightlifting, then drink milk.

6 Life-Saving Numbers

All of us want a healthy body. In this article, it give us 6 health measurements that can warn us of trouble ahead. First measurement is daily calory needs. Few people know exactly how many calories they need each day, but you can work that out by multiplying your weight in kilograms by 28 to 33 depending on how active you are. But picky calorie-counting is not the best way to match your food consumption to your body's energy needs. Second is your waist size. waist size is one of the best to measure whether your weight is affecting your health or not. A ratio more than 0.90 in men or 0.85 in women shows central obesity and may indicate metabolic syndrome that can accompany heart disease. Third is cholesterol counts. It is important to know not just your total cholesterol reading but also your level of bad LDL and HDL cholesterol. Fourth is your blood pressure. A blood pressure reading of 140/90 mmHg or more is considered high. If the reading is 120/80 to 139/89 mmHg , you may still be at risk and should take steps to prevent hypertension. Fifth is your triglycerides. Its made from the fats and carbohydrate that you eat. When you have high triglycerides paired with low HDLs, your risk of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome may be increased. Sixth is your pulse rate. Regular monitoring of your resting pulse will help you see if exercise regimen is strengthening your heart.

Plastic Plasma

Do you think that our blood can be replaced by plastic. It's sounds crazy but this is a facts. Blood made from plastic may one day be able to save lives in medical emergencies where real blood is not available. Lane Twyman PhD, from University of Sheffield has developed a molecule made from polymer(plastic) and porphyrin that hold iron atoms at their core. It is similar in size and shape to haemoglobin and mimics the red protein responsible for transporting oxygen in the bloodstream. The idea of pumping plastic into bloodstreaam sounds unsafe, but Twyman says porphyrin are natural and the polymer component is likely to be ignored by the body's immune system. Although confined to the lab at the moment , if proven successful in humans, plastic blood may be used on the battlefield where quick replacement of blood would save lives.

Migraine Is good For The Memory

Is it true? The first time i read this article, I myself didn't expect this. But in the article, it said that people with migraine suffer less memory loss over time than the unafflicted. Reserchers from John Hopkins Bloomberg School Of public Health found that while migraineurs scored lower on memory tests at the start of their study, they showed 17% less cognitive decline than non-migraineurs 12 years later. "Migraine medications such as ibuprofen, which might have a protective effect on memory, might be partially responsible" says Dr Amanda Kalaydijan of the surprise findings. "But it seems more likely that there may be an underlying biological mechanism such as changes in blood vessels or differences in brain activities.

Myths And Facts

There are some myths and facts about safety on the road. Maybe we think myth will help us but it has some facts behind it.

Myth: It is safe to drive overnight so you can avoid daytime traffic.
Facts: If you are driving at a time when you'd normally be sleeping, it will be harder to stay awake.

Myth: Loud music will help you to keep awake.
Fact: There are people who set up their car audio so that the car will have a good sound. Maybe this might help for a while but not for long. It can distract you from the road

Myth: Plenty of fresh air through the window wil keep you awake
Fact: This might give you a boost and help for a while, as might turning the air-conditioning on to cold. But if yo are tired, sleep is the only solution.

Biofuel Bugs

As we know, nowadays the non-renewable resources such as petroleum, coal and others are getting less and less. Recently, I have read about biofuel bugs. The researchers at the Biodesign Institute have found a new source of renewable energy which is bugs. Like plants, these microbes use energy from the sun to grow and scientist have found that the fat by-products can be used to make high energy fuel such as biodiesel. It's an appealing alternative to biofuels that come from corn, soybeans and switchgrass which can divert land away from food and feed production and are sometimes processed in coal burning plant.

Kiss Of Life

The first larger-scale study comparing cardiac arrest patients treated with or without mouth-to-mouth resuscitation outside a hospital setting found that survival rates were almost twice as high if stricken patients received chest-compression cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) alone. Mouth-to-mouth takes too much time away from chest compressions. However, for respiratory arrest such as near-drowning, drug overdose and choking, the standard CPR technique of two breaths after every 30 chest compressions is still appropriate....
